When running a batch file or ruby script (even .rbw) or anything that does not have a GUI, a cmd window normally pops up. This is surely unwanted when scheduling a task with those kind of programs. Sadly, I don’t see any checkbox to hide the window at runtime in the scheduled task wizard.
The best way I found is posted at http://serverfault.com/questions/9038/run-a-bat-file-in-a-scheduled-task-without-a-window.
Schedule a .vbs script containing something like:
Set WinScriptHost = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WinScriptHost.Run Chr(34) & "C:\Scheduled Jobs\mybat.bat" & Chr(34), 0
Set WinScriptHost = Nothing
There are other tools like hstart and cmdow that lets you do pretty much the same thing, but I prefer using built-in tools a lot more.
or secure file sharing, a replacement for samba (windows client, accessing files on *nix server).
DokanInstall_0.6.0.exe Dokan library (http://dokan-dev.net/en)
dokan-sshfs-0201226.zip for installer and explorer context menu
dokan-sshfs-0.6.0.zip take DokanNet.dll and DokanSSHFS.exe and replace in 0201226.
Advantages secure, read/write, easy to install.
Drawback easily bottlenecks at a few MBps on slow CPU. Not multi-core. Shows bad size information. Unstable?
Or something like that…
The idea is to get some widget to do not only what it’s supposed to, but also something else. For example, I would really want to hear the buzzing sound of a fly whenever I press
Ctrl-z in some
require 'fox16/responder' # no longer needed
class BuzzingText < FXText
def initialize p
FXMAPFUNC(SEL_KEYPRESS, 0, :onKeyPress)
def onKeyPress sender, sel, event
super sender, sel, event
if (event.state & CONTROLMASK != 0) and (event.code == KEY_z)
