Re: jaBuT - a flexible back-up and sync program

It did the update alright. It just showed that error afterwards. It did it again just now when I updated to v2019.02.23223... :|

Re: jaBuT - a flexible back-up and sync program

Got an error while updating via jaBuT 's own updater, after I allowed it to restart the program: https://i.postimg.cc/zv7kGcTm/ja-Bu-T-error.png Funnily enough, while trying to capture the error dialog via Alt-PrtScr, I also discovered that jaBuT interferes with that system keyboard shortcut by defa...

Re: Joplin - a note taking and to-do app

Joplin is a feature rich app with plenty of options for different workflows. Markdown is definitely a plus. 8) Unfortunately, it appears to be Electron based (am I wrong?), which means five different processes for the portable version and over a 100MB memory footprint on launch. As noted, full chan...

Re: AWGG - Advanced WGet GUI

Great news! 8) I was afraid AWGG had been abandoned. On a first inspection, looks like the problem I had before has been solved in the Beta. FYI, portability is set with ' AWGG.ini ' containing the following string: portablemode=1 Some portability enhancements, too -- e.g., see changelog 4th line......

Re: jaBuT - a flexible back-up and sync program

Hi there. Nice to see jaBuT 's development chugging along. :) Minor cosmetic glitch: on the latest 64-bit version running in portable mode, while the rest of the UI adheres to English as the chosen language, column headers do not and remain in German (see screenshot). Also, after resizing them for b...

Re: Shaken, not stirred

The program saw several updates since it's first post but appears to have stopped development. 2017 is not that far past, we have seen longer buried zombies coming back to life... ;) On a personal note, that is a curious concept of... what? Install-free non-portable application? So if you extract i...

Re: Portable console utility to get clipboard text to STDOUT or file

Yori (https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=24254) is an alternative CLI that includes a CLIP command to manipulate the Windows clipboard from the console. YMMV.

Re: MyTetra

We could assume the last stable to be just the previous development build, as is the case with many other projects -- then that would make MyTetra stable equivalent to dev v1.44.29... just thinking out loud. :)
