Re: Proposed Tweaking of the Voting System (CLI)

Why not just keep the current system like the regular database? Because, other than the problem mentioned above, the regular database is for a subset of tools (portable tools as a subset of all software) while the CLI database has no good alternative on the web where we discover the "other CLI" tool...

Poll: Proposed Tweaking of the Voting System (CLI)

The way it currently stands, the voting system poses a problem : BTW, use your vote wisely. Eventually, we will start hiding the private entries. If enough people think eg. Powershell is a sucky idea, it will not go public. Plain and simple. We dealt with Java and .NET stuff in the mainline database...

Re: "Recipe" type aggregator for memcoder, ffmpeg, mp3gain etc.

It is actually further from what I wanted but still sounds useful. You can do similar things with batch files (usually one for each recipe), although it is not gonna be one-liners!

Re: "Recipe" type aggregator for memcoder, ffmpeg, mp3gain etc.

Hey Andrew, I like the concept of this app and I have always wanted a kind of "batch file manager", where you can have a list (or a tree) of your batch files on the left and you can search, edit, and run them, maybe even drag and drop files on them. Could Media Cookbook evolve into something like th...

I'd advise you against putting registration circumvention steps in the database entry -- just leave them here in the forums.

The way I see it, you don't want to be responsible for an escalation of counter-measures... :|
Nicely put.

Re: CLI database is now public

I think the issue is showing the search hits (for highlighting, CTRL+F), not finding them in the first place.

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

Re: New suggestion for CLI database - Roast me!

Hi, Andrew. Welcome to the forums! Unfortunately, while your idea could be useful, we are afraid it may not fit well with our community. Maybe www.dostips.com/forum would be a better place for your idea! Don't let that discourage you from doing useful stuff here! Looking forward to your contribution...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice

I edited the post above with a simpler solution. I'll put the reset trick into the program instructions just because registerware isn't banned from the site, but suggestions on how to proceed are welcome. If it were any other site, I could just say "get on Discord and I'll send you a registration co...

Frustratingly the program appears to maintain their existing registerware requirement, but after a trial sequence:

You can just delete the two lines mentioned. Not the values, the lines.

Re: TPFC Database

1. About the new read block of text: I think a short (one sentence) sum-up of the paragraph is more likely to be read, which should be the first goal. You can have the paragrpah details in and indented text after or something. Think of the simplified privacy policies that advocates recommend. 2. Abo...

fselect - Search your local files using (relaxed) SQL syntax!

One-liner : Find files with SQL-like queries Description : Why use fselect? While it doesn't tend to fully replace traditional find and ls , fselect has these nice features: SQL-like (not real SQL, but highly relaxed!) grammar easily understandable by humans complex queries aggregate, statistics, d...
