logmein...

I've been using it for a few weeks now.    It's great.    Couple things:




-If you get disconnected -- F5 to renegotiate the same connection



-Mozilla type browsers like SeaMonkey and FireFox do work with it(exception being Google Chrome).  I've been using SeaMonkey from my home PC; however, if you have to do work over a KVM switch on your desktop --KVM requires IE.  For that purpose then, I also switch to IE on my home pc.



-Virtual desktop software _does_ work -- but, if you use ExeDesk lose the system tray icons and deskbar switch.  Right-click & use the "Windows organizer" to switch desktops or define short-cuts for next ~ previous screens.  I use ^%> and ^%< (on home PC) and +%> and +%< (on remote).

"Read first the best books on the subject which you have in hand. Why learn what you have to unlearn? Why overload your mind with too much food or with poisonous food? The important thing for you is not how much you know, but the quality of what you know..."

ReCompare.vbs

If you're having to redo CompareSuite compares this might be helpful.

Drag & drop a set of .HTML compare suite outputs on script -- it takes current CompareSuite settings & recompares based on what's in the source ~ targets within these files. Places outputs in a directory stamped "Recompare_yyyy-mm-dd_hh.mm.ss"...


Zipped copy of script:

Use an UNC list for your internal emails

I just received a message from networking indicating my mailbox size was too large. This is largely due to mailing of large attachments. If much of your mailing is on an internal intranet anyway -- rather than clog up mailservers-- I recommend using these scripts to create 'UNC' lists for your emails.

Script Link:  !makeUNCList.au3

Script Link:  !makeUNCList.vbs.zip

If you drag~drop a list of files from a shared ~ network drive unto the compiled version of this script--they resolve to an 'UNC' list which you can paste into your emails. They then open like a hyper-link.

You'll need AutoIt to compile the script.

You'll need PrimalScript to compile the .vbs script.

Script Link:  !makeUNClist_add_ql.vbs

This script creates a Quick Launch item for a compiled version of !makeUNCList.au3 or !makeUNCList.vbs

In EXAMPLE1 -- I drag the ".vbs" file atop !makeunclist.exe -- resulting in my clipboard being set to the fully qualified file name. It also works with multiple files and on files open from a mapped network drive dragged to the quick launch shortcut in EXAMPLE2. EXAMPLE3 is how I use the UNC list in an email.

EXAMPLES:





Create Inserts from CSV via WebFocus and VBS

1. Create a simple webfocus report by dragging tablename to
output painter

2. Set output to 'COMT'

3. Run report

4. Drag resultant .CSV unto .VBS

5. Execute resultant .SQL



In this example I'm simply backing up a table. However, you could use the same concept to create a WebFocus report from multiple input sources and then if you name your output with 'tablename', and use the correct 'columnname' values for headings -- use to feed another system...

DRY and Find Results(alt+r in CR Formula Editor)

When using the Crystal Reports formula editor -- you can use alt+r to bring up a cross reference of the formula within the report.


I use it to by clicking on a single formula from the tree, then, right-click ~ find results to find it's reference from other formulas within the report.


Principle to observer from pragmattic programming: DRY (don't repeat yourself).

From Alarms and Discursions by G.K. Chesterton

1 Gargoyles ~ III: "Realism is simply Romanticism that has lost its reason."



2 The Surrender of the Cockney ~ "I sincerely maintain that Nature-worship is more morally dangerous than the most vulgar man-worship of the cities; since it can
easily be perverted into the worship of an impersonal mystery, carelessness, or cruelty.


3 The Nightmare ~ ...All really imaginative literature is only the contrast between
the weird curves of Nature and the straightness of the soul.
Man may behold what ugliness he likes if he is sure that he will
not worship it; but there are some so weak that they will
worship a thing only because it is ugly. These must be chained
to the beautiful. It is not always wrong even to go, like Dante,
to the brink of the lowest promontory and look down at hell.
It is when you look up at hell that a serious miscalculation has
probably been made.
