Yeah, I am still around. I just don't code nearly as much as I used to, and what I do write I often don't polish to the point of being able to release it.Thanks for your immediate response, it is nice to hear from the developer of my beloved Famulus, at least I know that you are safe and sound!
You are very welcome! It is always nice (and a bit surprising) to hear someone actually uses one of my apps. If you have tested a bunch of launchers then I assume you have tried ContolPad? https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1891 It is what I cop... I mean, what inspired me to create Famulus.I have tested scores of launchers of any kind and Famulus is among my greatest favourites, so I would like to thank you for your excellent work- please accept my great and sincere thanks for this nifty little tool!
Unfortunately, I have no plans to make any changes to Famulus. If someone found a significant bug I would certainly try to fix it, but as far as I am concerned at this point Famulus is feature complete. Sorry.In case that in the future you change your mind and decide to release a new version of Famulus (I really hope that 1.00.5b is not the last version!) I have a tiny fancy feature request- an additional column in "Commands" menu (perhaps next to "Option" column) which shows some statistics- the number of times a program or file has been launched.
Thank you kindly.Since Famulus is running just great on my Windows 8 x64 machine (it is very light on RAM usage by the way) I updated Famulus database entry adding Windows 8 to the supported Windows versions.
Well as I said I have no plans to change or add to Famulus, but I may have an alternative proposal. You say you would like to have a count of the number of times Famulus opens something? Do you particularly want that feature as part of Famulus itself, or would it suffice to have it another way separate from Famulus?If there are new Betas in the future it will be my pleasure to test them!
What I am thinking is a simple 'middle man' app that you would launch from Famulus, and it would then launch a designated file or program and save a launch count to a log file. If that sounds like something you could really use I would be happy to see what I can do. I code as a hobby. The main reason I have a folder full of unfinished apps is at some point they get so complicated that they are no longer fun to work on, so I abandon them. Changing Famulus would be a HUGE amount of time and work, but making a middle man app sounds much more doable and enjoyable to me.
What do you think?
