Todour 2.10 – portable

A new release, 2.10, is now available on https://nerdur.com/todour-pl/.

This release is focused on fixing issues with the portable mode, so if you have 2.09 and are not using portable mode, this release has nothing new.

For the ones of you using portable mode, the application now takes the argument “-portable” and will then search for an .ini file in it’s current directory (there is a shortcut in the .zip archive that should start in the correct mode). The .ini file will be created in a directory called “Nerdur”.

Please try it out and let me know if it works as expected.

Todour finally open source and on GitHub

So, I finally got around to it. You can find the source code of Todour on GitHub https://github.com/SverrirValgeirsson/Todour

There is plenty of room for improvements as most of the code has grown organically from a minor experiment that I was doing some years ago and I don’t really code that much nowadays. Anyway, I put it under GPL for simple sharing in any form. Hope it’s of value to someone.

Minor changes

  • New icons from FontAwesome
  • Ability to sort items alphabetically

  • Bugfix: Copy and pasting multiline text will still only create one item

Go get it at the todour page

Todour 2.03 ready

Head over to the Todour-page for downloading the new 2.03 release.

Changes:

  • Table width is now always the width of the window (not the included text).
  • Tooltips show the entire contents of a todo
  • Ctrl-f sets focus on the search field (Cmd-f on mac)
  • Ctrl-n sets focus on the “new” field (Cmd-n on mac)
  • Tab order improved
  • Editing a value will remember the position in the table so keyboard operation is easy (F2 to edit or Enter on a mac)
  • Window remembers it’s position and size

Enjoy

 

What effect did tagging a song have?

Now a short time has passed since I posted about tagging on SoundCloud and I thought a small update might be of interest.

The effect has been noticeable. The song in question had been all but forgotten before I added the tags but is now on my top list of most played songs without me having driven it in any way. Now that increase may be an effect of me writing about the song in a previous blog post and I have to check with other songs just to see if the results stays.

Happy tagging.. it seems to matter.

Why Firefox is my prefered browser

I use a few browsers on my different desktops and I normally don’t really care what I’m using. The standard is pretty high when it comes to browsers and even the bad ones are good. But there is a browser I always get back to, and that is Firefox.

Although writing this little post about it gave me an opportunity to tweet  Tweet about Firefox crashingthat Firefox crashed a lot today, I won’t mind. It usually doesn’t (and has just had a major upgrade).

But the main reason is that it is cross platform, and that the plugins are just so good (Pocket and Evernote mostly).

I don’t use many plugins, but those I have integrate well (on all platforms I use) and the browser does actually feel faster on my mac than Chrome. Then the fact that it’s very developer friendly is a big plus.

But the main reason is the fuzzy feeling of control and trust. Mozilla isn’t selling my data, and they work actively to make the web a little bit more secure.
That really matters.
