Re: xplorer2 v4207 beta

Are you initializing all variables now including "empty" folders, as requested here?

Re: Any news from Kilmatead?

What hurts me the most is when Nikos converted the forum over, all the PMs were lost. I was holding onto and occasionally rereading my exchanges with Kilmatead. With them lost, and nothing from Kilmatead for 18 months, I'm sure I'll never make that pub date I promised him whenever I finally made it ...

Re: You should add a link to your website to your Youtube videos

p, Don't waste your time. Try to find a link from the forum to ZABKAT Home . I've tried to point out to Nikos that impulsive people (the majority of humankind) need quick links. They aren't going to see a video or happen on a user forum through GOOGLE search and then say, "Gee, that sounds interesti...

lately, with the way the forum goes, more interest in kilmatead than xplorer2, the real question is why do I keep it at all?
I think you answered your own question. At least for the time being.

Re: forum relocation

Speaking if kilmatead, as you were. Isn't there some way to find out what happened to him? Is he even still alive? There must be forum members that can find some info if someone has his real name. I would not want him to fade away without some acknowledgement of him and his contributions here and o...

Re: Smarter rename

I decided to have a go at a function to create folders from random strings copied to the clipboard (e.g. book names, movies, URLs) and automatically do two things: 1. Change the invalid characters for a predetermined list of substitutes. 2. Change the case to Title Case, since most of the time I'm g...

Re: forum relocation

I see that all private messages are gone.

Are you planning to recover those? I'd hate to loose some of the correspondence there with someone whom I may never have the opportunity to write to again.

Re: Smarter rename

awxRename has several "native" options (on the context menu) including upper, lower and sentence case. There's an advanced option to execute a Perl script against the names, too. I have it installed and also use F2 Mass Rename. Hasn't been updated since 2006 but still works fine for me. -----------...

Re: Smarter rename

So if you implemented the filter in F2 renaming, where's the logic to leave it out of F7/F8 naming/renaming? The invalid characters can't be in the final name, so toss them and show a note in the info bar that you did and move on. So anyway, whether this s a new request, bump of an old request, or j...

Re: xplorer2 suggestion box

I'd like to suggest: Separate threads or whatever it takes so when one tab/pane is busy, waiting for a drive to respond, busy with a copy operation, etc., that the other tabs/panes are not locked up as well. Many times I get the "Not responding" message from Windows when I've clicked on a tab/pane t...

Re: Any news from Kilmatead?

We've passed the one year mark since Kilmatead's last post. I'm still rooting for the theory he ticked off the Old Bailey who told him he needed a time out, of about a year or so. Maybe he'll be out in time for Christmas.

Anyway, K, if you read this, you're missed.
