Re: Tucows put out to pasture

Oh boy, nostalgia.. what else can I say.. I think the tech giants are all trying to move us into their walled gardens i.e. app stores. Maybe one day, the notion that you can download and install stuff from outside the walled garden will become a rare novelty. I suspect the current generation (our ch...

Odd. I just started it, cropped a CR2 Canon Camera Pic and changed the color a bit and saved the file just to test and works fine.
Is that the 2020-11-19 version? On Win10 x64?

Re: Photivo

Wanted to test this, but couldn't get it to run at all. The program (2020-11-19) crashed on startup on my Win10 x64 machine.

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

I had similar thoughts.. there are certain things that doesn't quite fit with CLIs.. eg. icons, screenshots etc. Even extraction instructions will probably be unnecessary in most cases. So having screenshots replaced by usage examples does make a lot of sense IMHO.

Re: BES - corral CPU-hungry programs

Thanks! I agree that the 3-process limitation could be a potential bummer. I will go check your other suggestions out, esp. CPU Balance.

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

Minor suggestion: CMD icon would make more sense with ">_" instead of the current ">-"... Done! Having spent some time with the prototype, maybe I will roast myself. :D I have been trying to translate some of the CLI submissions (FileList, csvtk, Exiftool etc.) into the tasks/solutions -based forma...

Re: qimgv [image file viewer]

I was able to get both the 32-bit ( qimgv-0.9.1-video.zip ) and 64-bit ( qimgv-x64_0.9.1-video.zip ) working with video right out of the box. The program only supports mp4 and webm. I only tested with mp4, and it worked with all the files I threw at it (a full-length movie, quite a few MP4 taken wit...

Re: BES - corral CPU-hungry programs

webfork, I know this is an old topic, but any reason why you haven't added this program?

I have been looking for something to throttle a video encoder recently, and BES seems to do the job quite easily. It's lightweight and works. Is there something I've missed?

Re: KeepassXC [password manager]

I vote to add as a separate entry, and provide some details about the differences from the other entries. Currently, we have: - KeePass Classic (grand-daddy, Windows native, very old) - KeePass Professional (aka V2; successor, dotnet, current mainstream) - KeePassXC (cross-platform, native, successo...

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

OK, I think I have implemented all the suggestions and bug fixes. Let me know if I missed anything. There are 2 items I'd like to discuss: - Solutions would always appear grouped by the main header (" Rename different images ..." in my example), even if they could be applied in other situations -- i...

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

Thanks for your feedback and Midas' mockup. There are a few things I can easily incorporate into the current mockup.

The current mockup already sorts by social score in the "Task" view, and freshness in the "Solutions list" view, so we are on the same page in this regard.

Fine. So we agree we disagree. :P Wait, I thought we both agree my design skill sucks? My design skills are pretty slim, too, but I'll see if I can come up with something... stay tuned. Less so the design bit, more the "succinct language" bit. No permalink, though -- which should point to TPFC inte...

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

- Overall, I feel the layout should be somewhat simplified for easier readability/interactivity, although I have no ready-made suggestions for that. Any web-designers to the rescue? First off, I couldn't agree with you more on this. Even I found the layout and color combination somewhat lacking, bu...
