Re: RoboIntern [DotNET Task Scheduler]

I've never seen that COMSPEC function before or understood it as necessary. I've always liked how straightforward Windows batch files are -- what a weird addition. Not trying to be pedantic, but %COMSPEC% is a system variable* that always points to CMD.exe. As different systems go, I have found it ...

Re: Tucows put out to pasture

It also makes me wonder what this site will look like in a decade and how people will look back on our contribution to freeware. I think we do have some influence. Recently I saw someone recommend Universal Extractor 2 in a Discord server that has nothing to do with freeware. In early days of UE2, ...

Re: Vivaldi (Opera [inspired] browser alternative)

Interesting piece comparing what separates Vivaldi from regular Chrome : What do you mean "regular Chrome"? Vivaldi is not Chrome or a Chrome shell. It has fully custom UI, not derived from Chrome's. And with its focus on features and customizability, Vivaldi is clearly its own thing rather than me...

Re: Site usability testing results

The SQL query actually includes a lot of other stuff, including pagination, ordering, scoring etc. which are built up along various stages, cumulating into a single SQL query. Isn't it better to leave those to the frontend? No, doing pagination and scoring in the front end is slow since it requires...

Re: SeaMonkey Portable

Even though tthe usage is probably very small potatoes next to other browsers, but it remains a very useful program with a ton of functionality. Good to keep on top of it. I certainly use it. BTW, Vivaldi is also getting there. Its built-in email client, feed reader and calendar are in preview .

Re: CLI database is now public

There is a CSS+JavaScript feature in development to allow this: https://github.com/WICG/display-locking/blob/master/explainers/content-visibility-hidden-matchable.md It's not yet supported by any browser, though (only Chromium-based browsers have an implementation, and even in them it's disabled by...

Re: PowerShell

What's next? Entry for CMD.exe? Entries for Paint, WordPad and Notepad? It's built-in Windows program, what are you even talking about? Yes and no. An old version of PS ships with Windows. The newer version (formerly called PowerShell Core) doesn't, and needs to be manually installed if you want it...

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.

Re: CLI database is now public

I did some research just now, and surprisingly I discovered that CTRL-F doesn't gel well with hidden divs/spans and details/summary, which are the 2 main methods used to implement spoilers. Basically, there is no good way to get the browser to auto-expand and highlight search keywords from within h...

Re: 30+ hex dump tools for Windows

For the record, this post was borne out of my PM debate with vevy about how useful filters would be. Another tool (that vevy omitted from his list :P ) is PowerShell Format-Hex . Comes with Windows starting from Windows 10 Anniversary Update, available on older versions and macOS/Linux by manually i...

I can find the entry for Swiss File Knife, which I don't use; I cannot find one for NirCmd, which is a rather similar command-line multi-tool that I do use.
The database is editable. If you want a new tool added, add it and post about it in the forums! That's how the DB is intended to grow. :)

Re: CLI Database Discussions

There is a problem with current upvote/downvote system. Upvoting or "This app rocks!" doesn't cover a lot of tools that are expected to be in a CLI database. UnxUtils doesn't rock! but a lot of users would expect to find it. It's "standard". To address this, we may: Keep the sorting of ">10 points"...
