Re: Symmetry

Well sure, as part of the compiler (no one ever said you had to use them, or worse, redistribute them). :shrug: I never really felt the urge to use MinGW for something loosely related to application development. I did some Cygwin stuff a few years ago and I vaguely remember that Cygwin always requi...

Re: Symmetry

Ah, but what was the overhead of the VS download in the first-place, never mind disc-space, registry flogging, and endless endless endless updates of .NET? You cannot really compare that. (Well, you could, but it would not be fair.) But I admit I started this, so you are probably fine here. Stupid ...

Re: Symmetry

And the best part of GCC is that it takes up very little space (compared to the monolithic MS and Intel compilers) Unless you already use Visual Studio which reduces the additionally used bytes to 0. :party: Sure, it's a tad over-provisioned (Ada? Fortran? Really?) but I'm sure somebody out there a...

Re: How is it correctly said Xplorer2?

My vote goes for "eks-plo-rer-two". I'm unsure if there can be a "correct way" though.

Re: Symmetry

I, in my muckier-than-thou attitude, define "city-boy" as anyone who doesn't own their own pair of wellies I do, but they have had the wrong size for almost twenty years now. :? A propos size: I actually doubt that GCC is a nice environment for anything related to WinAPI development. Carefully adju...

Re: Symmetry

Now this is an interesting question when put into the context of x² usage statistics. Do you intend to make x² more family-friendly with blue/reddish gumball animations and a childlock on the Delete File button? :shock: -- No kids here, none planned nor wanted. They look like work and I'm still chil...

Re: Symmetry

On the plus side, mine started at 16, so you at least had 5 more years of Saturday morning cartoons than I did. :wink: I still enjoy Saturday morning cartoons, albeit usually consumed sometime later as I sleep a lot on Saturdays (and any other day). The little distractions from the everyday boredom...

Re: Symmetry

What surprises me is that you have a living room! I admit that, while it is called my living room , I usually only use it as a room . My living happens when I'm with friends and/or people of similar interests, not while I sit inside and write some horrible code while listening to awesome music; ent...

Re: Symmetry

My favorite (alleged) W.C. Fields quote is his advice to carry a small snake wherever you go. I admit I didn't take it too literally though, at least not the second part. (Apply innuendo as you wish.) It might not surprise you that I have a copy of Munch's Skrik in my living room as it (and the comp...

Re: Symmetry

Since you can't just cater for eternally-complaining power-users It regularly feels weird (and arousing) to write this, but: I am not confident that this assumption of yours contains a sufficient amount of objective truth. Of course he can and he probably better should . In a world of dumb interfac...

Windows Defender offers poor protection compared to other antivirus.
If you use anti-virus software, you're screwed.

Re: feedback required: scripting xplorer2

The main benefits of making xplorer2 "scriptable" with something other than keyboard/mouse macros or obscure COM things are obvious: By providing an easy way to just hack around xplorer2's internals you'll lower the bar for extension development which might lead to a more vivid ecosystem surrounding...
