Re: Clear Clipboard

By the way, you quoted what I had written but misattributed the quotes to yourself. In any case, this seems like the sort of naive little program that almost anyone could write for himself in a scripting language like AutoIt. and Oh, and another thing occurs to me: it's hard to see password-protecti...

Re: Clear Clipboard

First of all, I'm not trying to "sell" anything. I knew that you were NOT selling anything and I hadn't meant to imply that you were. I used "selling point" rather loosely and that is why I had the term in inverted commas. My use of the term seems OK anyway as, according to Merriam-Webster.com/Dict...

Re: Clear Clipboard

Clear Clipboard is a simple tool that will periodically clear your clipboard. This is useful, for example, to hide sensitive information, such as passwords. If an intention of the program is to reduce the exposure of sensitive information such as passwords to clipboard-spying, does it have a sensib...

I'm not sure, but I doubt it: the "!pfw" search in DuckDuckGo just directs to the search of TPFC catalogue and not a search of the Forum.

Re: Safe password generation

I'm a fan of deterministic password-generators; others may recommend against them, eg. 4 Fatal Flaws in Deterministic Password-Managers . (I feel the arguments are somewhat exaggerated and inaccurate but they are worth considering.) LessPass is free and open source. https://i.postimg.cc/Fz71MKSZ/1-P...

Re: Is there a program which can revert the mouse pointer direction?

I'm no computer expert -- I just have a hobbyist interest in computers and writing naive little programs in AutoIt -- but it occurs to me that the smooth inversion of mouse-movement might not be possible with a simple programmatic solution; a suitable mouse-driver, on the other hand, should do the t...

Re: Is there a program which can revert the mouse pointer direction?

A quick googling gave https://superuser.com/questions/406502/how-can-i-reverse-mouse-movement-x-y-axis-system-wide-win-7-x64 and, on that page, there is mentioned Polynomial's Mouse Inverter (requires NET 4.0) available for download at: https://m.sendspace.com/file/ZJUWFV.

Re: Is there a program that can remove duplicate lines in text files?

As a result of a quick googling, I found this:
7 Ways To Remove Duplicate Lines in Text Files.

However, I've pursued it no further: it may or may not be what you want.

Why has the topic, "How Do I combine Rar files?", disappeared.

I got a notification that there was a reply at Fri Jan 25, 2019 9:56 am in the topic, "How Do I combine Rar files?", but clicking the notification link just results with the statement: "The requested topic does not exist."
I'm curious about why it was deleted.

http[colon]//boonwirsdownjohn[dot]ga is a copy of TPFC: WTF?

What the hell is this site, http[colon]//boonwirsdownjohn[dot]ga, about? It's some sort of really poor copy of TPFC.

Does it breach copyright? What purpose does it serve? What does "boonwirsdownjohn" mean or stand for?

WTF?

Re: Ding-Press - 7zip front-end

I've somewhat extended my naive Ding-Press. As before, if used there, it quickly: decompresses .7z, .rar and .zip files compresses folders and other files. V1.53 The shortcut (or shortcuts) for Ding-Press if added to the SendTo menu can take command-line arguments for compression-level (1 - 9) (eg. ...
