Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

It'd probably be more straightforward to go with the tool based approach, given some of the logical drawbacks. That said it could go with a bit of a hybrid in showing some examples of usage in the entries. Perhaps similar to the way screenshots are collapsed by default in some PFDB entries, appearin...

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

Checked out the proof of concept site. Organized it better than I'd expected :) It's interesting seeing the de-emphasis on download links coming from the site's existing DBs, almost a shock :P I wonder what the user engagement of command-based vs tool-based site would be, as I kind of feel (particul...

Exported some for 2020 since I'm not sure if the roadblock with the template was resolved and I think webfork is nearing their annual topic.

Included the silver 'top 10' variant just for completeness sake.

Re: AllDup [& discontinued GetFoldersize]

Really late reply but, if you still have last GetFoldersize version and still interested, I suggest you make free file hosting mirrors and post back here. I'm not sure what is currently considered a reputable site for free hosting without registration so attached it here split into parts and each z...

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

Under each title are multiple community-added recipes, which can be public/hidden based on our existing voting system. For contribution, one can add a new CLI for the recipe eg. "Add subtitle to MP4", so the latter can have multiple CLIs for performing that function, which can then be voted upon. O...

Re: PowerShell

I'd prefer one entry for PowerShell. Not a fan of having an entry for every command: IMO they'd add little value, like Andrew has said before. :? I only add entries for subcommands of tools that gather disparate functions under one executable . Think BusyBox or Swiss File Knife (hash a file, find a...

Re: Poll: This determines whether there would be a CLI database at all

I think having command-line programs as part of how the site has discussed and submitted entries historically is useful since they can be just as handy as GUI-based programs though I'm personally not fond of the goal of putting every CLI program one can find in a database here just for comprehensive...

Re: New site logo?

It used to have a graphic of packed cardboard boxes to the left before the design refresh.

Quite partial to the straightforwardness of the current design tbh.

Re: New designs for TPFC by tproli

I think one thing to keep in mind is that the area for screenshots is smaller than 1080p on the actual site. I'm always fond on maintaining legibility in screenshots if they'll be viewed at smaller widths more often that not. Eg: at fullscreen on a 1440p monitor (2560px wide) the area for the screen...

Re: Sandboxie becomes free

I'd be interested to know if its open sourcing will be of benefit to malware looking to circumvent its protections, or if that's not a concern due to its existing design or circumvention methods have been figured out in the past. My slight concern being that unless enough good security engineers are...

Re: FileTouch Utility

Does anyone else use programs like this? If so, for what? - Reverting music files to their pre-tagged file timestamp (Mp3Tag supports preserving timestamps but sometimes external tools need to be used which don't). - Changing timestamps for privacy reasons (obscure a timezone). - Downloaded some fi...

Re: Single-letter forum posts issue

Out of curiosity, what forum uses that model? One forum that implements locking posts to subsequent edits is hydrogenaud.io. After 24 hours (IIRC) posts can no longer be edited, for both OPs and regular posts. Their short-term lock approach is rather annoying tbh, though I know once in a while new ...

Re: Firefox Portable

In earlier versions, when the udate download (from inside the "about" dialog) was complete, you were able to ignore the "click here to restart and apply" (or something like that), restart your firefox with the PA-launcher and the update was installed anyway. Since some time I realised that after re...

Re: Software promotions

I am actually curious as to why you would think that. What are those "hints" you saw? It's likely as I tend to read more (ie: too much) into such things just based on forum experiences with different handles and accounts elsewhere (both of others and myself). Really the only reason I posted that wa...

Re: Firefox Portable

I have mine set to "check for updates but let me decide when to install them" and it seemed to prompt me about the changes a few days ago. So I can't confirm if that's an issue. Did you go for a really long time without an update? Maybe it forces the update after like a month or something? As to th...
