Re: [DQSD-Users] dqsd.net webmaster?

2010-03-12 Thread Shawn K. Hall
I agree 100%. Part of the erason I stopped actively developing public
searches for DQSD was that it was near impossible to get changes to the
site. I'm not a publicity hound, but I do like to have my efforts
published when I devote my time to something like this. The current site
is very early 21st century, so is lacking a lot of features that
should be available on most current sites.

 Hi all,
 
 I think we should just have dqsd.sourceforge.net as the main 
 page - we can see if Dave will redirect dqsd.net back to 
 dqsd.sourceforge.net.  I changed the home page to 
 dqsd.sourceforge.net, uploaded the files in dqsdweb to the 
 htdocs for dqsd project and it seems to work.  Note, I have 
 not tried every page and every link - also you'll have to 
 clear your browser cache as the old index page on the dqsd 
 htdocs site redirects to dqsd.net  
 
 I can easily change it back to the way it was but that way 
 wasn't working and I like the idea of having the dsqdweb 
 files hosted on sourceforge so that all the admins can mess 
 with it and avoid the problems we're currently experiencing.
 
 Your thoughts? 
 
 Brent

 Hi Tom,
 
 I think the most pressing concern is that we seem to have 
 lost control of dqsd.net -- updates aren't bubbling through 
 as they should, and we don't know who has access to the host.
 
 - There is a wiki (now defunct, apparently, I can't get to 
 the pages) for developers at SourceForge. Would a user-facing 
 wiki be valuable?
 - Feature requests can be made at SourceForge. I agree it's 
 not as appealing as the link you posted.
 
 My life is busy with two small children, and I don't have all 
 that much time to develop DQSD, but I'd love to see it grow, too. :)
 
 If we could get the infrastructural problems sorted, maybe we 
 could kickstart development again, starting with a proper 4.1 
 release, and then look into the various issues we have?

   There are problems which need to be addressed, such as 
 the load time when a new google is done, which is often a lot 
 slower that doing a search in the google bar in the open 
 browser. I still get the startup IE error. Shawn has 
 suggested other things in the past which would improve 
 things: http://bit.ly/shawndqsd and http://bit.ly/shawnxml
   
   Some other ideas to continue the brainstorming:
- turn dqsd.net into a wiki
- add a proposed new feature section (such as linking 
 one search to different a browser, floating toolbar, Logins 
 with authentication code, etc) and let people vote like on 
 http://digsbies.org/site/wishlist
- add a blog
   
   Lots of people out there work on open source software, 
 dqsd needs more exposure to get more users for that to 
 happen. We can start that by linking up the buzz we already 
 have, e.g. adding links to posts such as David Blume's 
 http://dblume.livejournal.com/65402.html

   I am wondering as I would like to make a change on the

Re: [DQSD-Users] Windows 7 RC 64 Bit Install Help needed

2009-05-19 Thread Shawn K. Hall
 There's a launch mode -- can't remember the name or number -- that
 writes out a temporary .html page, and then launches it via the shell.

It's the pagetemplate parameter:
  pagetemplate=maximized.htm;

If the user has the file association for that extension set to the 32bit
version, it should load that. Also, if they do not WANT to associate
that extension, they could use another custom extension and create that
association. This for localprefs.js:
  pagetemplate=dqsd.32bitie;

And this registry change:

'//  
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.32bitie]
PerceivedType=text
@=html32file
Content Type=text/html


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\html32file]
@=HTML32 Document

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\html32file\DefaultIcon]
@=C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer (86)\\IEXPLORE.EXE,-17

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\html32file\shell]
@=opennew

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\html32file\shell\open]
@=Open in Same Window

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\html32file\shell\open\command]

@=Open

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\html32file\shell\opennew\command]
@=\C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer (86)\\IEXPLORE.EXE\ \%1\

'//  


I don't have a 64bit OS at my disposal at the moment to actually test
it, but if someone is up to it, let me know how it works out.


 There's also the problem with IE's security features; depending on
 where from a page is launched, it may get the lockdown restrictions,
 and the browser will run in a cramped mode.

Yep. I wonder if the -embedding switch would assist in this?

Re: [DQSD-Users] Windows 7 RC 64 Bit Install Help needed

2009-05-18 Thread Shawn K. Hall
 In Vax/VMS world we used a technique called  spawning  
 another process. Seems there should be SOMETHING similar
 in Windows.  In fact it should be even easier since DQSD
 has no need to stay attached to the spawned process
 and check its exit status.

The problem in Windows (at least in this instance) is that it's not
necessarily a simple shell call. A POST usually has to be made to the
server (which requires additional HTTP headers that can't be passed on a
command line), which means the application being pushed has to interact
temporarily with DQSD.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Ubiquity...

2009-03-27 Thread Shawn K. Hall
I don't think I could survive without DQSD. I install it on just about
every computer I touch. For some people, the basic google search is
all they need and when they discover it can do more they're thrilled.
For myself, I use DQSD custom searches to manage over 150 services,
applications and other functionality directly. Everything from Plesk to
phpMyAdmin to FTP, text formatting, sorting, conversion...I live in
DQSD, and find mysef WIN+S'ing on every computer I touch.

There is definitely a barrier to entry, though. People wanting to make
it do things beyond the basics have to learn how. We need a simpler
control interface. Simpler configuration (WYSIWYG) for setting
javascript variables - probably best stored in an XML file that's parsed
during load to compose the JS automatically.

It also needs to be more malleable. It should be able to plug into
browsers as a toolbar, desktop objects, web pages and so forth. Creating
a web-page to host the functionality and client-side settings (that may
be saved/preserved to the server as an option) may be the way to go -
and I've started it several times, reimagining the process each time.
It's just not there yet - and some of the functionality (like the
ability to run desktop commands) is getting even harder to implement as
security becomes more of a concern.

That's all a lot of work, though. Who has the time?

Re: [DQSD-Users] Adjust Clock Font

2009-02-13 Thread Shawn K. Hall
 Kim pointed me in the right direction and I now have it working to my
 satisfaction with only the following in localsearch.css:
 
 .clock
 {
  font-size:15px;
  text-align:center;
 }

I use a multiline DQSD bar, and wanted to stuff as much info in it as
possible. This is the contents of my localsearch.css:

.clock
{
 text-align:center;
}


These are the relevant settings from localprefs.js:

clock=true;
clocklongform  =   \r\n MMM dd,  \r\n hh:mm A ;
clockshortform =   \r\n MMM dd,  \r\n hh:mm A ;


This presents within DQSD as the following (though it's centered in
DQSD):
Friday
 Feb 13, 2009
   12:06 AM

The real magic (since the specific theme I'm using is centered anyway)
is in the clockshortform. Without that change it would have been
abbreviated to only the time.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Logins with authentication code

2008-12-04 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

 I have raised the issue before about logging into sites that
 require session id's and the like. I was looking at one today
 that is like this with the wizard pulling back:
   input type=hidden name=authenticity_token
value=55a1820d6538b36c0129c590dc4e4591007c38f9 /
 Shawn has mentioned I think that one needs to do a first pass
 to get this authentication code. Is there any common javascript
 routine we could have that we could call to do some of this
 work?

If you look in yy.xml you'll see an example that's based on the
yyfsupport function. Here's one (that doesn't require a supporting
function) specific to the field you posted (replace yourform with
whatever your form name is):

  try{
var r;
idSession = ;
sUrl = http://example.com/;;
var xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject(Microsoft.XmlHttp);
xmlHttp.open(GET, sUrl, false);
xmlHttp.send();
var sBody = xmlHttp.responseText;
var rx = /authenticity\_token\svalue\=([^]+)\/g;
while ((r = rx.exec(sBody)) != null){
  idSession = r[1];
}
document.formname.login.value = idSession;
  }catch(e){}

That SHOULD do it for you. :)

We could put something similar to the yyfsupport function in the base
code, I think, which would make this kind of thing a lot easier.

Re: [DQSD-Users] comx /dilbert access denied

2008-11-10 Thread Shawn K. Hall
That's exactly the same error.


The only thing that jumps out at me is that the code in comx is using
synchronous XML-HTTP transfers, it isn't changing the UA, and isn't
checking for errors, which can all cause issues.

If the UA isn't changed you may end up where the server flat-out rejects
attempts to connect from the MS XmlHttp object (mine does).

Synchronous transfers can cause stale or broken connections if the
connection is refused or for any other reason the server doesn't return
content. Finally, without error trapping, there's no way to tell what
the error could be.

I'm going to put this on my short list for rewriting it to make it do
all of the above. It's a lot of code though, so no guarantees it'll
happen right away. On the plus side, it'll be more modular, so new
comics should be a lot easier to add. ;)


Meanwhile, if you look at the rssx search I wrote (lines 42-56), which
comx is based on, you'll see a much better way to handle the remoting
aspects.

 Charlie / Shawn --
 
 I am assuming that you reloaded the xml searches in DQSD 
 by typing a single ! character in the search box, after 
 replacing the 
 comx.xml file (otherwise, you're still running the old search).
 
 That being said, is the access denied message you're 
 receiving similar to the one I've attached to this message?  If so, 
 welcome to my office-based hell.  I started getting this 
 message doing any comx query after a windows policy update on 
 my office 
 computer.  comx still worked fine on the WindowsXP machine I 
 had at home at the time.
 
 Kim -- this may be where you come (back) in to the 
 conversation --- if they're seeing the same thing, it's the 
 issue I was 
 trying to explain I was having several months ago, and could 
 no longer get (for instance) comx to work properly on my machine at 
 work.  There's something in the configuration of internet 
 access, Windows XP, or some policy therein that prevents the comx.xml 
 script (and, perhaps, others as well) from working as they 
 should.  Instead, I see the error message I've attached to this note.
 
 I no longer have a Windows machine at home, so that's why 
 I have no way to test the changes I've made to the comx.xml file.  I 
 am fairly confident they work, though, as I made similar 
 changes to my comx.php program, which I specifically wrote to 
 run on my web 
 server so that I could still get a single page with all my 
 comics on it from my machine at work (and, as a bonus, can 
 also get from 
 any non-windows [thus incapable of running DQSD] machine).  :)
 
 comics.com did change the entire layout of their site on 
 November 3, and all of the comics hosted there stopped working 
 (including dilbert, which changed a bit more radically than 
 the rest).   As a result of those changes, I rewrote the 
 portion of my 
 php program that fetched comics from comics.com, and it now 
 works.  The changes I made to comx.xml mimic the changes I made to my 
 php program... that said, they should work.  :)   I've also 
 sent the comx.xml to a friend of mine that was able to use 
 DQSD and comx 
 on his computer before, and I'll let you know if he has any 
 problems with this new update.
 
 anyway... I've rambled on enough here.   attached is the 
 error screenshot from my work machine (where comx.xml doesn't 
 work, nor has 
 it for several months) -- Shawn, Charlie -- I'd appreciate 
 your input on this thread as to whether that's the same 
 message you're 
 now seeing...

Re: [DQSD-Users] Addons

2008-07-21 Thread Shawn K. Hall
I have used most of the add-ons, and have the (3rd party) iptools addon
installed now, but have given up on most of the others over time. The
functionality exposed by addons is almost always available directly as a
search, so I use that method now - writing a replacement for it if I
have to.

I do think we should provide hooks for searches so they can chain
themselves in the auto- parsing featureset. It would make it a lot
easier to integrate things that have a consistent style and form, and
still be able to use DQSD in those situations where one has disabled the
search that is hard-coded into the auto- functionality now.

And, of course, I still think we should consider migrating to an xml
storage format so we can have a user-interface for building and
maintaining settings. The chrome idea is a good one, and I think it
would be quite useful for the novice market.


You know, I don't know how people function without DQSD. Seriously. I
have a client that uninstalled it over the weekend and called me up at

Re: [DQSD-Users] DQSD 4.0.0.5]

2008-07-17 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

  - What browser are you using?
 
 FF 3.0

  - When you start the browser for the first time (without 
  DQSD) does it show a message of some sort?

 No, only get message when firefox _first_ started with dwsd

This...
  http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/1470.html 
...suggests that Firefox up until 3.0.0 has had a startup error when
loading from a command line, whereby two windows are initiated instead
of one.

Let us know if 3.0.1 fixes it for you please?

Re: [DQSD-Users] DQSD 4.0 released!

2008-06-13 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Brian,

 As a guess -- could it be that they've set something in IE6 
 so that it won't execute scripts/html in a specific directory 
 (namely, the DQSD program directory)?

It could be the IE6 option to prevent scripts from running on your
computer. Check it here:

  In IE, tools  internet options  advanced  security  CHECK allow
active content to run in files on my computer.

You may need to reboot, or turn off and back on DQSD (not simply reload)
in order to implement this on the deskband.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Issue with Vista theme

2008-06-13 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Michael,

 With all this talk about double-height taskbars I tried 
 resizing mine (which I've hardly ever done :) and I saw
 something I've not noticed before: the gradient shading
 that so nicely matches the Vista taskbar only extends down
 one row; in fact actually not quite one row, because now I 
 see there is a small strip of pure black even in the
 single-row case. 

This is the multi-line bug. :)


 Picture attached
 (does that work?)

Yes.

Unfortunately, I don't have the vista 'noir' theme to work with, so I
couldn't recreate the vista themes. If you can send me a little bit
larger image (I need more of the standard taskbar so I can extract the
background from it), I'm happy to provide the updated files to implement
the correct theming there. This goes for all of the Vista styles that
aren't correctly implemented to deal with multi-line styles.

Re: [DQSD-Users] DQSD 4.0 released!

2008-06-06 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Kim  Brian,

  :sigh:  probably some danged security policy that they 
  swept through and set, somewhere (either in
  WindowsXP [SP2], or in IE [6.x]).   :(
 
 I had a lot of strange Access Denied errors (due 
 to XmlHttpRequest, so nothing we can address
 directly, unfortunately) when I ran DQSD as non-admin.

Are we using the xmphttprequest object? Or are we using the
msxml2.xmlhttp (and similar) objects? The first one is only available on
IE7 and up.

If it weren't with IE6, I would say that it was probably related to the
enable native xmlhttp support option in IE7. But since it's IE6, I
don't know what to think. If the specific search uses a local file cache
for processing or functionality, then it could be that the search is
failing based on permissions on the DQSD folder (add full rights to your
current user to all files to fix it).

Re: [DQSD-Users] DQSD 4.0 released!

2008-06-06 Thread Shawn K. Hall
 Changes have now been committed to resolve this.

It occurs to me that I probably ought to say somewhere that due to the
way that the DQSD stylization works, people wanting to take advantage of
the multiline styles will need to run configure  load color scheme 
... in order to apply the new styles. This procedure overwrites the
previous theme.css file (which ships as an empty file, but is populated
by the *theme.css file last loaded through configure), so the OLD
theme will be preserved for anyone that upgrades. If you don't load a
new color scheme (or the same one again) the updated stylization will
not be applied.

Just thought I better put it in writing somewhere. :)

Re: [DQSD-Users] Positioning issue with 4.0.0.4

2008-06-04 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Bob,

Sorry, we were talking at different issues. I thought you were trying to
separate DQSD from the taskbar completely, while you're trying to
integrate it into a multiline taskbar as a single row.

 I'm trying to, as you say  below, have the DQSD bar 
 as one row on the deskbar/taskbar.
 
 I'm able to do this with 4.0.0.3, but not with 4.0.0.4.

I installed 4.0.0.4 tonight for the first time in order to ensure my
changes would be compatible with the codebase, and after rebooting, and
quite by accident, caused DQSD to be a single row under my quick launch
bar.

I don't doubt you're having problems, I'm just saying that the current
4.0.0.4 release does not prevent you from using it as a single row
within a multiline taskbar, though it may be a pain to set it up the way
you want.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Positioning issue with 4.0.0.4

2008-06-02 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Bob,

 It's not SP3 and it's not true that the DQSD can't be moved at all.

What Kim is saying is that DQSD cannot be separated from the windows
deskbar. It must reside within your deskbar (the same region as the
start menu and system tray) or there may be issues, especially after you
reboot.

While it can usually function fine if you drag the toolbar from the
deskbar to another edge of the screen, separate from the start menu, and
use it there. It will need to be placed back in the deskbar before you
reboot or it may not work correctly on the next boot.


 Could this possibly be related to trying to fix the issue
 of DQSD in color schemes other than classic shrinking to
 half width when positioned below another toolbar?

The code I wrote to better handle multi-line taskbars has not been added
to the DQSD package yet. Kim released before I was able to make the time
to ensure that it was all clean and working to commit my changes. :(


However, I had once personally been very interested in having the DQSD
bar as one row on the deskbar, and while I have no resolution for it, I
was able to accomplish what I really wanted (multiline clock  multiline
DQSD entry and the inclusion of the quick-launch toolbar on the deskbar)
by changing the clock short form to be:
  clockshortform =   \r\n MMM dd,  \r\n hh:mm A ;
This inserts carriage returns into the time/date at the \r\n - so you
could use them somewhere else if you prefer.


I've got a bit of catch-up to to do today, but will try to commit the
multiline changes tonight or tomorrow.

Regards,

Shawn K. Hall

Re: [DQSD-Users] Minor Color Scheme Issue

2008-05-19 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Bob  Kim,

Yes, I do have a mod that will fix the styling to make it look like it
is better integrated within the taskbar, but it requires a change to the
search.htm file. The last time I made changes to the search.htm file
several people on the dev team got nervous, so I haven't pushed the
changes back through yet.

I don't personally use the colored styling within XP so I can't say
whether this will resolve everyones issues, but if it doesn't then I'm
sure it comes very very close. I did just test it within the 'blue'
scheme and it looks 100% integrated to me (top  bottom, colors, DQSD
box, and clock). And unlike the current styles, it also better handles
the margin  padding when using mutliline DQSD input and/or multiple
taskbar rows, but that, of course, requires changes to the stylesheets
for each layout - and those will need to be tested across different
systems to ensure that they're working fine.

However, it required changes to a couple things that are bigger than
just the scheme. It required a change to the resizing code that may
affect any custom personal styles anyone has incorporated, and since a
new layout object had to be created to wrap the rest of the DQSD code,
it's possible (though unlikely) that some of the code within searches
that affect the user interface could be affected. The 'gobutton'
functionality is not hampered at all, though, so this is probably just
me being overcautious.

Would you like me to post the changes here?


On a related note, someone (Kim?) said something about auto-detecting
the users' current Windows color scheme during installation, and setting
the default style to that. Any progress?

Regards,

Shawn K. Hall

  If I make the task bar single width so that the search bar and

  This is just an observation.  I'm perfectly happy using the classic
  color scheme which doesn't suffer this minor visual effect.

 Now when I run the whois search one has to enter a 4

Not directly, but there are other whois sources. Like whsc. Try this:
  whsc 12pointdesign.com

The other one you can use is whi (WebHosting.info). I can't remember
offhand if I published this one yet (I like to test them a while first,
then forget):
  whi 12pointdesign.com

I like whi because it also provides a very large database of domain-IP
reverse lookups:
  whi google.com
  whi 64.233.167.99

Re: [DQSD-Users] search renaming batch file / pat and patno searches

2008-02-26 Thread Shawn K. Hall
 I'm still a little confused about what you guys are seeing in 
 the help -- I'm 99.99% sure disabling searches by renaming
 the files from anything not ending in .xml should cause them
 not to be loaded into the help.  Am I missing something? 

The internal disable functionality does NOT rename the files, so you end
up with the files still being parsed, but the functions are not loaded.
This causes the same extensive memory load, without any added value
(except, maybe, the ability to search the help for info about those
searches).

Sure, qsfreq is cool, but it's a change in processing and logic for most
people, and few people can do things a different way just because that
way is better. ;)

Re: [DQSD-Users] conditional compilation is turned off?

2008-02-22 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

 Having disabled a lot of my searches using the batch
 generated by http://master-minds.net/cgi-bin/disablesearches.cgi
 on a reload I now get an error saying conditional
 compilation is turned off. Also my local var definitions
 in localrefs.js do not seem to be loaded.

It's possible that one of the scripts you've disabled is used within the
auto-parser or within another script. For example, dns is used within
the auto-parser, so could raise errors when a function from it is called
if the script does not exist. Same with the phone number lookup or math
functions. There are a couple of scripts and functions I wrote that rely
on the vbsx script - which might cause the error you're receiving.

Try re-enabling the scripts one by one (they're just renamed in the
search directory) and reloading it to see if it fixes it.

-Shawn

Re: [DQSD-Users] yy login issues

Hm. It wouldn't run using the default params (yyid) when no value was
passed, so I removed the call to nullArgs. I've replaced it with code
similar to the code for banyg with another mod, too, and it looks like
this is working the way I want - and you expect. ;)  I also expanded the
help a bit.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Local aliases not working

2007-06-20 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Michael, 

 I hope someone sees a pettern here!

Yep.


 movie doesn't work (ym does)
 mov   doesn't work

This could be because of alias ordering, try changing the order to:

mov|movie
movie|ym

...see if that changes anything. Though I don't think that it's good
form to use an alias for an alias anyway. The mov could be asserting
movie is a literal search in the new engine under Vista. Can't say.


 excel doesn't work
 exp   doesn't work
 word  doesn't work
 cpdoesn't work

Looks like run problems.

Are the applications each in your path OR in the app paths setting in
your registry (hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\app
paths\)?

It could also be that the run search is disabled. Does run notepad
in the search box do anything?


 tulsa works

Looks like all your problem searches are somehow related to the run
search.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Change default search engine

2007-05-26 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Nick,

 I would like my default search engine to be google.co.uk. I 
 have put the following line in my localprefs.js file 
 defaultsearch=gguk, but google.com is still reigning 
 supreme. If there is more to it than that, could someone let 
 me know what I must do?

Did you create a search named gguk? There is not one named that in the
standard release, so I am guessing what you actually did was create an
alias ggug for gg %s /uk. If that's the case, it won't work.

The defaultsearch functionality is designed to work with actual
searches (files).

You can fake it by copying the following text to a new file name
gguk.xml in the localsearches directory:

search function=gguk
  nameGoogle UK/name
  categorySearch/category
  linkhttp://www.google.co.uk//link
  description/description
  script![CDATA[
function gguk(q){
  performsearch(gg,q +  /uk);
}
  ]]/script
/search

I think this will do what you're after.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Odd Math Error

2007-05-20 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Richard,

 Is there no way to set DQSD to preform normal arithmetic
 functions?

You can use the VBSX function as a wrapper to force VB-style mathematic
operations. Here's an example:
  vbsx =cdbl(2156737.51 - 16123.85)

You can add an alias for this to localaliases.txt as so:
  m|vbsx =cdbl(%s)|Safe math|Safe math|Finance

Since you're calling it directly, and the formula isn't being simply
interpreted from the command-line, it is easy to raise errors by
submitting invalid values (m 1/0). So, be careful with that kind of
thing. ;)

You can use other math operators this way, too, like power (^) and
modulo (mod) and whole value division (\ - eliminates the remainder).
  m 10 ^ 8
  m 17 mod 4
  m 9 \ 2

And more:
http://www.w3schools.com/vbscript/vbscript_ref_functions.asp#math

I'll bet with a bit of hacking in calculate.js, it would be possible to
change the default behaviour for mathematic formulae to this processing
method. Personally, I could care less. The JS method has almost always
served my needs, and when it hasn't, Google fills in nicely.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Forcing firefox to open in new window rather than newtab

2007-04-11 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

 http://kb.mozillazine.org/Command_line_arguments firefox has 
 the command line option new-window to force an open in a new
 window. Would there be any way of hacking a shortcut or
 something to do this?

I have the following aliases in my localaliases.txt file:


mozx|run C:\Program Files\Mozilla FireFox 2\firefox.exe %s|Mozilla
FireFox 2.x Browser|Start Mozilla FireFox 2.x|Browsers

mozt|run C:\Program Files\Mozilla FireFox 2\firefox.exe -new-tab
%s|Mozilla FireFox 2.x Browser, New Tab|Start Mozilla FireFox 2.x, New
Tab|Browsers

mozw|run C:\Program Files\Mozilla FireFox 2\firefox.exe -new-window
%s|Mozilla FireFox 2.x Browser, New Window|Start Mozilla FireFox 2.x,
New Window|Browsers

moz1|run C:\Program Files\Mozilla FireFox\firefox.exe %s|Mozilla
FireFox 1.x Browser|Start Mozilla FireFox 1.x|Browsers


Firefox 1.5 is installed in C:\Program Files\Mozilla FireFox\
Firefox 2.x is installed in C:\Program Files\Mozilla FireFox 2\

I can open a new tab in Firefox 2 using:
  mozt 12pointdesign.com

Or a new window like:
  mozw 12pointdesign.com

As for how to configure it to use new windows vs new tabs for all
searches... I don't know. Have you tried?:
  reuseBrowserWindowMode = 0;

While the docs say this is only effective for IE, it might work with
Firefox under the new core.


If that doesn't work, try changing line 11 of defer_tools.js from:
DQSDLauncher.OpenDocument(url);
To:
DQSDLauncher.OpenDocument(url,  -new-window);

Change line 30 from:
  DQSDLauncher.OpenDocument(params[1], params[3]);
To:
  DQSDLauncher.OpenDocument(params[1], -new-window  + params[3]);

And line 34 from:
  DQSDLauncher.OpenDocument(path);
To:
  DQSDLauncher.OpenDocument(path,  -new-window);


While I can't guarantee that will work, it looks like the best shot.
These changes will probably cause errors if you ever choose to switch to
IE or a different default browser, so keep that in mind.

Good luck.

 I only want it to open in a new window for a particular search
 not at all for all searchesi was wondering there might be
 some way of passing a parameter (-new-window) in a search to

Is it a form-based search? Have you tried adding 'target=_blank' to

Re: [DQSD-Users] tips for tinypic search

2007-03-21 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

 However the page uses an UPLOAD_IDENTIFIER which changes
 each time, I guess this is one of those session variables.
 ...
 Any tips on how to tackle this one appreciated!

You need to do a preliminary get of the page and parse the results to
obtain the UPLOAD_IDENTIFIER. I do this in a couple searches... Icap is
a good example (darn, looks like the service is either broken or they
changed the way it works). Anyway, it does a preliminary get and then
reads the resulting text and obtains the form token, same as what you're
trying to do. I wrote one to clean SourceForge lists, too, but it
looks like that one may have never got uploaded? If you can't figure out
the regex, let me know and I'll take a look for you.

I think you might have a problem with it though, since the IE security
model disables the ability to script the source of input=file tags.
You could do it by pushing the whole thing through your own wrapper - a
script that handles the upload, too, and then returns the resulting
content to read the key and opens up the player view for you.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Search related

2007-02-11 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Steven,

 I want to be able to highlight text in my browser and then 
 right click and search Wikipedia for the highlighted text. 
 ...
 Any thoughts on how I can make the link to and search on 
 Wikipedia as smooth as possible.

The easiest way would be to change the default search in DQSD to
wikipedia. Do this by editing localprefs.js to add this line:
  defaultsearch=wik;

Reload DQSD (!).

Now, instead of 'right-clicking', just highlight the text you want to
search in Wikipedia, and drag and drop it into DQSD. It'll search in
Wikipedia by default from then on.

HOWEVER, this will ALSO set your default search action anytime you
simply type text into the DQSD window to searching Wikipedia unless a
different search is specified. To search google prefix the search text
with gg:
  gg search text

I hope that works for what you're after.

myaccount)?

For the first, you can use run cmd.exe /k %s, or shorten it a bit more
with an alias:
  run cmd.exe /k dir c:\  c:\list.txt
Swap /k with /c if you don't want the command prompt to remain
afterwards.

For the other, uh, no - not yet. At least, not to my knowledge. Sounds
like a good idea though. It could be accomplished with a script passed
through cscript.exe.

Hi Stephen,

 But i have a small issue. Here in Denmark where i live
 we dont use the . (dot) as decimal marker, rather we
 use the , (comma).
 ...
 Is there anyway that i can configure this to work right

Can you be a bit more specific about where this is a problem? What
searches are you using that are being misinterpreted? Can you provide a

Hi Tom,

 I never new about these hot keys, I just use up and down 
 arrow. Neither of the mentioned hot keys work for me in 3.1.9.2.

The differences between F8 and up and down is that F8 lets you search
your history. Type in a few characters from within a search you've used
before and then press F8 (when it works) and it will review the searches
you've used with that phrase in it. I use it ALL the time.

Hi Bethany,

I'm including you on my response since you are not a member of the Users
list. I recommend you join it if you are interested in the ongoing
development and support of DQSD. We are currently in the process of
alpha-testing the 4.0 branch, already resolves much of the XP trouble
many have faced, and it also has ballooned the number of included
searches to well over 300. At current count I believe there are about
375, and I have another 10 or so left in my upload queue, waiting for
CVS to work properly again.

You can still see the latest stable build (3.1.9.2) on the DQSD.net
homepage here:

Which soon, hopefully, will be replaced by the 4.x build.

 John is correct, it hasn't been abandoned by any means.  Kim

 Is there some feature you really wish it had that it doesn't

Re: [DQSD-Users] IE7 Beta 3 and XP SP2 with all updates through lastweek

2006-07-06 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Al,

 I can confirm that the DQSD tool bar window comes up and 
 operates correctly after making the registry change (and
 a reboot) suggested by posts from a couple of days ago.
 There are no prompts requiring acknowledgement at all to
 get it to work.

Does the help window appear when using ? ?

If the help window appears, does it raise a security warning or yellow
warning at the top of the popup?

Do searches which use activex objects and direct http requests - like
the comx search - operate correctly?

Thanks for your time,

Re: [DQSD-Users] way to make DQSD take up less than full taskbar height?

2006-06-10 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Bennett,

 I usually keep my taskbar at least three layers high...
 Unfortunately DQSD takes up the full height of the
 taskbar, which means it uses up a lot more taskbar
 real estate than it actually needs.  Is there any way
 around this, to make DQSD take up space in only one row
 on the taskbar, like an app button?

I don't use XP, so while I can say with assurance that it can be done on
either Windows 2003, 2000, or 98 - it's a stretch for me to assume it
can be done on XP.

The easy way is to grab the left shangle of the DQSD window and drag
it to the VERY bottom of the taskbar, then release. It will look like
nothing is going to happen - but after the screen settles it will be the
bottom row of a multi-line taskbar. You can then drag your Quick
Launch toolbar beside it - and any other toolbars you may use - so it
doesn't eat any more space on it's own than necessary.

Again, I don't use XP, so I never had to face the button collection
problem others using XP do. But I do use a two row taskbar, and it
serves my purposes very well. I frequently use very long queries or
commands and having a multiline DQSD that's about 200 px wide (long
enough for the long date + time to fit on one line). I have the Quick
Launch toolbar immediately to the right of that (wide enough for four
icons to fit inside and a chevron to reach the rest - with
well-organized folders inside that have the bulk of my applications),
and the rest of my taskbar to the right of that. The clock that would
normally sit in my tray is disabled. Nothing but useable real estate in
my taskbar. And, I use the Floax function (more info at floax? to
access dynamic stored searches (like length of the clipboard, common
string manipulations (replace unix-style line endings with windows',
quick-sort, case conversion, and a couple custom aliases)) through the
go button (the magnifying glass).

RE: [DQSD-Users] Error including Character Entities

2006-05-23 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

 I thought this was going to be a duhbut unfortunately I 
 still see a box

Try this table instead:
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/sgml/entities.html#iso-88591
You'll need to know what the character is called, and I assume you
intendedto present the latin capital letter E with acute, which is 201,
and the O acute, which is 210.
  #201;  and  #210;
This works in my tests. It should be noted, though, that these entities
may fail if the font used is not a latin font. While this is unlikely,
it's something you should be aware of.

 That worked.

Yay!

 The problem exists where the full help is not shown, as 
 I highlighted in another post. So the accented channels
 do show correctly but will never be seen as the help window
 does not have a scroll.

What browser version/os? Both ? and ?uktv apply scrollbars to me.

Hi Tom,

 The way I normally view it is from the  menu,
 where no scroll bars show for me. Do you see some?

Do you mean on the actual list of searches via the chevron and the list
of searches under each category, not the individual help for a specific
search? I use 1600x1200 on each of my displays so that has never been an
issue for me. My understanding is that most of these menus collapse
automatically at the edge of the screen, though. Does it not? Can you
share a screen shot?

Hi Kim,

 So, does this make us almost ready to release?

I want to make those mods for the multi-line/single-line taskbar fix to
the search.htm and images. I'll work on thiose when I get back from
errands in a few hours.


 It'd be great if you could find a site where this repros 
 consistently. Or is it easy to repro on any URL?

Just dug through several of the searches I committed until I found one.
IPHunt. Go here:
  http://www.searchmee.com/web-info/ip-hunt.php
Click in the first box. Click the DQSDWiz. Fill it out however you want
and save it. Look at the form action attribute.

Hmm... From a little digging into their source it looks like it might be
because they didn't close a quote in their meta tags properly (bad html)
and they don't include a carriage return in the source until after the
opening form tag. Granted, that's a problem, but is there a way that the
wizard can fix it anyway?

the most urgent (to me) or the simplest to add (by the search wizard).


Which leads me to... The search wizard seems to have an issue with some
sites where it will append garbage to the action url, and instead of
collecting the actual target from the site it uses the current page name
with three high-bit characters after it. It looks almost like it might
be a UTF-8 BOM marker, but I admit I didn't look into it very hard.

Is anyone familiar with YubNub ( http://www.yubnub.org/ )? It looks like
they're a reincarnation of DQSD for the web, with a rather huge library
of searches/functions. The benefit? No installation. The problem? No
installation. It's not a deskbar, like DQSD is, so you just don't have
the same breadth of local abilities that you'd have with something that
has the internal functionality bound to the system. I use WIN+S so much
now that at clients locations I get outrageously frustrated if they
don't have DQSD. I can't imagine those poor souls that live without it.

RE: [DQSD-Users] IE 7 Beta

2006-02-01 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Kim,

 Would people like a release of DQSD that bypasses the main
 problem, i.e. the initial InfoBar at startup, but that
 exposes a number of other problems with popup windows,
 etc?

That would be my own preference (understanding that in the future we may
be able to correct the other issues).

RE: [DQSD-Users] new mwdx search (Merriam-Webster search, results in a pop-up window)

2006-02-01 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Kim,

 ...see if it works for you...

Works fine for me, however, may I suggest offering an option that can
alternate the functionality of mwd through the localprefs?

This code will do it (replaces line 28):
if (typeof strMWDPopup == undefined) strMWDPopup = 0;
if(( args.switches.length  0 ) || (strMWDPopup !== 0))

Then if someone has the strMWDPopup variable set to anything other
than zero the dictionary lookups will appear in the popup, while
otherwise (and default) they appear in a new window.

This does not take into account situations where the user wants to
default to popups but wants to visit the site, though.


 XmlHttp is acting up on my machine, so I can't see if it 
 works properly...

In my reading (having not tested it yet myself, in part because of this)
I've seen that IE7 has some XmlHttp+JavaScript issues. The consensus
from those I've seen discussing it is don't use IE7 - no workarounds
are available.

RE: [DQSD-Users] establishing pattern for unique url per date

2006-02-01 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,

 I am working on a search for the daily static...I am
 trying to figure out the pattern they use to come up
 with the name so I can compose it given the date.

I would just use an XmlHttp hit the first time, pattern match uf*.gif,
and then a second request for the image. This is some code I've migrated
from one of my homebrew samples. Save it as a new htm file:

'//

var ksRoot = http://www.userfriendly.org/cartoons/;;

function showImage( sImage ){
var s = '';

  var sUrl  = http://ars.userfriendly.org/cartoons/?id=; +
sImage;
  var xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject(Microsoft.XmlHttp);
  xmlHttp.open(GET, sUrl, false);
  xmlHttp.send();

//get the response content from the remote site
  var sBody = xmlHttp.responseText;
  var rx = /(\/archives\/[0-9a-zA-Z]+\/uf[\d]+\.gif)/g;
//3456789`123456789`123456789`123456789`123456789`123456789`123456789`
  var r; var i = 0;
  if ((r = rx.exec(sBody)) != null){
sParsed = r[1];
  }
  sParsed = sParsed.substr(1);

}catch(e){
  alert( It didn't work! + \n + e.number + :: +
e.description);
}

var o = document.getElementById('testimg');
o.src = ksRoot + sParsed;
}

RE: [DQSD-Users] DQSD web site

2005-05-26 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Gregory,

 How hard would it be to make a DQSD search web site?
 Could the deskbar code be ported easily to a web page,
 so non-Windows users could enjoy DQSD?

This is one of my pet projects, which is currently less than half
done.

It's not simple, because a lot of the searches do more than simply
GET or POST forms - they create objects like MSXML and RegEx that
strict browsers will not allow. There's also the security risk -
some of the searches let you run vbscript or javascript and doing so
poses the question to whether to push that type of thing to the
client, or to the server, and if the server, how do you sanitize an
environment where it is intended to provide the ability to execute
random input? I haven't had much time to devote to the project over
the last few months, but intend to finish it eventually. :)

Hi Brian,
 
 Sadly, no, it doesn't work.  :(

:(


 After saving this as comx.xml in the searches subdirectory 
 and restarting (!) DQSD, I get the same error message
 dialog, twice, followed by a google search looking for
 'comx' and whatever I typed in as parameters.
 ---
Line:  99
Char:   5
Error: The handle is invalid.
Code:  0
URL:   C:\\Program Files\Quick Search Deskbar\search.htm

Have you made any other customizations from the base installation?
Adding/removing searches, localprefs options, adding additional
aliases...?

In a private email please send me what appears on the clipboard when
you 'run' this in DQSD:
  vbsx :document.body.outerHTML
You should be able to simply run that in DQSD, open notepad and
paste in there (it'll return the results of all of the generated
html, so if you have any private/personal/sensitive information,
please REVIEW that text before saving it but do NOT remove any
carrige returns), save it as text and attach that to a new message
to me privately.

Also use this one to see if it's returning okay:
  jsx alert(DQSDLauncher.AppDataDirectory)
This should just pop up with something like:
  c:\documents and settings\brian\application data\dqsd\
If it doesn't then let me know.


This could be a security issue, related to not having rights to
'script' activex components (necessary for the path generation of
the temporary file and the xmlhttp object). If you've made any
changes to the default behavior of how IE operates on the system
please describe the changes made.

Hi Kerry,
 
 Has the DQSD - XP Pro ServicePack2 compatibility problem
 been solved yet?

It will not run without security warnings in this release. You will
need to click okay on a warning dialog when it first initializes,
but most of the rest of the functionality should work out of the box
now.

We anticipate the 4.0 release negating the need for this extra

RE: [DQSD-Users] multi aliases problem solved

2005-01-06 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Jean-Marie,

 this one did the trick. Shawn, I already  got that
 little secret uncovered. Where did you get that
 information about the syntax for that multi ? Trial
 and error or is there a place to look in ?

It's in the help for the search (?multi), though it should probably
have a full page devoted to it:

'// 
multi

MultiSearch
Perform multiple searches with a single command line expression.

superMultiModeEnabled can be set to true in localprefs.js to enable
super multi mode which allows different sets of searches to be done
(ie: multi search1 /firstParam; search2 search3 /secondParam)

superMultiModeSepChar can be set to a character in localprefs.js to
determine the split character for the super multi mode the default
value is ; 
Usage:
multi search1 [search2 [...]] term 

Example:

multi av gg wood planes -  Display the search results for wood
planes on altavista and google. 

multi fm;sf hs /new -  Display the new projects and files on
freshmeat, sourceforge, and hotscripts provided
superMultiModeEnabled is set to true in localprefs.js.
'//  

With over 300 searches you can easily expect to spend a year
learning each search, and making your own. I've committed over a
dozen searches I've made to DQSD and my own 'localsearches' folder
currently has 15 searches in it - most of them are for different
sites I work on, and I have a 'tester' search specifically for
helping to create new searches.

I think we ought to do a 'search a day' type thing where the fine
points of specific searches are detailed so people know what's
available to them. Is anyone interested in that? I'd cover the
searches I use myself first, of course. ;)

RE: [DQSD-Users] Can I have Merriam Webster be the default dict?

2005-01-06 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Kerry,
 
 Is there a way to have Merriam Webster be the default 
 dictionary - it has free pronunciation.

You can control DQSD just about any way you could want. To override
any existing search with another you just create an alias that
overwrites the existing mapping. Add this to localaliases.txt, on
it's own line:

  dic|mwd %s

This will change the behavior of dic to search the Merriam Webster
instead. HOWEVER, you can also shorten that a bit by using the
default shorter search alias for MW of :. Try this in DQSD (note
the preceeding colon):

  :whatever

Hi Kerry,
 
 ...it's behaving differently than before when I had XP
 Home and before ServicePack 2...

When you get the taskbar sized and shaped exactly the way you want
it (the quick launch toolbar, DQSD and the 'rest' of it) you can
right click over the taskbar and check 'lock taskbar/toolbars' (or
something like that) to prevent them from resizing on you.

RE: [DQSD-Users] searches array

2005-01-05 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Ryan,
 
 Yeah, that was the first thing I tried.  I put the
 line alert(searches.length); into one of my search
 files and did a search.  It popped up saying
 Undefined.  alert(searches) just gives [Object
 object].  The aliases array does the same thing.

This is the structure of each searches[] element, which is a named
array:
 {fname, name, desc, link, cat, subcats, fun, 
  aliases[], enabled, aliasmenudisplay, local, nomenu}

Enumerate using this style (based on qsfind):
  var s = ;
  for (var i in searches){
if (isNaN(i)){
  if (searches[i].fname.substr(0,1) != _)
s +=   + searches[i].fname;
}
  }
  alert ( s );

You can enumerate them using the searches[] and aliases[] arrays.

RE: [DQSD-Users] newbie needs help with a search

2005-01-04 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Jean-Marie,
 
 is it possible with the dqsd search wizard to make a
 search from
 http://www.vab.be/NL/viaVAB/belgie/addressform.asp
 I just cann't get it. Some pointers would be usefull.
 I thought of using user_address and so on for always
 having the same startpoint. So that would leave me with
 2 fields to fill in  the street (straat) and the
 place...

I don't personally use the search wizard when creating searches.
It's really better suited for searches that have very minimal search
requirements (one to three parameters). Instead, I look at the
existing searches that are most similar to what I want to accomplish
and build the search in a similar fashion.

For example, for your particular requirement I'd recommend looking
at the mappoint (mp.xml), mapquest (mq.xml) or directions (dir.xml)
for how to build the search parameterization, and look at winres
(winres.xml) for assigning default values to fields. Make sure you
have the latest copies of each of these searches. ;)

RE: [DQSD-Users] ANN: 3.1.9.0 - Final Release

2004-12-26 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Paul,

 I got a message saying that my keyboard couldn't totally 
 be supported and that some features might not work; or
 something like that.

The error message indicates that the keyboard *shortcut* (WIN+S)
will not be available because something else is using it. We
probably ought to explain that better.

It's a client-side problem, not a bug or flaw in DQSD. You can
change the keyboard shortcut in the settings. Look inside the
preferences.js file (you can open that file in notepad) for more
information.

Some of the common culprits (for using WIN+S) are Trillian and the
Google Deskbar. Trillian allows you to disable or change their
keyboard shortcuts very easily. I don't use the Google Deskbar, so I
have no idea if/how you would change the key association.

Hi Ken,
 
 I installed 3.1.9 today. Following installing and
 rebooting, whenever I use the DQSD toolbar,
 http://reliableanswers.com/x/dqsd/ggd-discover.asp
 comes up.
 ...
 When I do that and restart DQSD, all subsequent
 searches are in Google Desktop, rather than the full
 Google search.

Are you sure you haven't changed your default search or modified any
of the other code related to the 'default search'?

I just 'clean' installed DQSD (deleted the Quick Search Deskbar
directory on both before isntalling) on W2K Server and a W2K3 Server
and did not experience that situation on either system.

Scan through localprefs.js for a line that looks something like
this:
  defaultsearch=ggd;

Change it to:
  defaultsearch=gg;

Hi Paul,
 
 ...I don't know any site that generate that warning, so I
 can't test it. Perhaps you could provide me with a link to
 such a site?

The page here should work:
  http://ReliableAnswers.com/x/dqsd/ggd-discover.asp

I can almost guarantee it'll fail in your browser by default, just
under IE6's default security config. However, you can download the
script from the bottom and run it from your desktop, which does
essentially the same thing, but it does it in 'local' context -
under XP SP2 you should see it fail or prompt you depending on your
settings.

Oh, and all the script does is create an XMLHttp object to download
a 'scrape' of Google in order to discover your Google Desktop key
(using RegEx). If you don't have a Google Desktop Key it does
nothing for you at all, but attempt to create that XMLHttp 'activex'
object, which is the security test you're after.

Content on remote servers is usually blocked silently (no warning).
If you DO NOT see green text in the first textbox then it was

Do we want to do it? I don't think so. For one, we'd *really* have

RE: [DQSD-Users] Incorporate Google desktop search into DQSD - WORKS!

2004-11-15 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Dennis,
 
  Still have to do the one time indexing...baulking at
  the tought of google having all my info storedI 
  know you you posted similiar sentiments...
 
 The question is *where* the info is stored.  The answer 
 is *locally*.
 
 From http://desktop.google.com/privacyfaq.html#make_searchable

Even with the information stored locally there is significant
pause for contemplation. I store my email and ftp settings locally
as well, but is the software that I use likely to be readily
exploitable in order to obtain my information? Further, since Google
has indexed this information already, will someone that wants access
to it only have to drop into my DQSD and type ggd password to see
where all the passwords are stored (and previews of each)? Worse
even, how does the Google.com integration work? Is it 'before' the
content hits my browser, or after - via script, BHO or somesuch
locally? In each case, if the system has spyware of any sort then
the Google Desktop extends the capacity for exploitation since it
gives advanced access to priviledged content from valuable files
across my system.

Google also has an interesting response to this FAQ:

 
7. Does Google collect information about me? 

Google Desktop Search will not send any personally identifying
information, such as your name or address, to Google without your
explicit permission. So that we can continuously improve Google
Desktop Search, the application sends non-personal information about
things like the application's performance and reliability to Google.
You can choose to turn this feature off in your Desktop Preferences.
 

Does that information include the search terms, keywords, index data
and system profile information? Sure this is not 'personally
identifying' but it surely identifies my PC capabilities, system
contents and performs a very high-level of *system* profiling which
could be used for rather significant aggressive 'other' uses - and
the rest of the Google services have interesting lapses in their
privacy coverage and limitations.
  http://google-watch.org/

Don't get me wrong - I've been using Google since '98. I've been
using Google Desktop since I wrote this search. But what do we
really know about what Google does with the information they have
access to? The search engine that has the term 'search engine' in
its pocket has an unlimited potential for exploitation. If you thnk
the number of people looking for holes in IE is bad because it has
the market-share it does - consider the number of people looking for
holes in Google! This month there were 3 vulnerabilities reported on
Full-Disclosure, one of which was a significant programming error
that exposed the way Google functioned. Uh - oops? The other two
were 'mere' cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. That's no big
deal, except it's Google.


Anyway... the jury is still out as far as I'm concerned.

Shawn K. Hall

[DQSD-Users] Koders.com search

2004-11-15 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hello All,

I've created a search for Koders.com ( http://koders.com/ ) - a free
service to find source code based on programming language and
license. Use it as so:

 koders filesystemobject /asp /gpl
 koders fopen
 koders network /vb.net

If you all can test this out a couple days and let me know if there
are any errors I'll post it to CVS as soon as I get an all clear.

Regards,

Shawn K. Hall

[DQSD-Users] CopyScape search

2004-11-13 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hello all,

I've created a search for CopyScape ( http://CopyScape.com/ ) - a
free service to find plagiarists of your content. Use it as so:

copys dqsd.net
copys http://reliableanswers.com/virus/klez.asp

I've found plagiarists of my own work with this nifty little tool.
What do you do once you've found plagiarists? Here's the answer to
that, too:
  http://ReliableAnswers.com/PC/DMCA.asp

If you all can test this out a couple days and let me know if there
are any errors I'll post it to CVS as soon as I get an all clear.


I also created a search for Koders.com yesterday, but am awaiting a
response from them before posting it. Their specifically requests
that anyone with an intent to incorporate their service into another
product should email first. So I did and am awaiting a 'yes' before
publishing that search (boy has that been useful today!)

Shawn K. Hall

RE: [DQSD-Users] Failed to parse

2004-11-05 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Don,
 
 I put  alertmode=0; in the LocalPrefs.js: but I
 still got the error message. I even tried changing
 the 0 to 1, no differance. I skipped one line typed
 the alertmode. Should I have put anything in front?

Nope, It should just be that one line by itself. Reloading would
either make the error go away or not.

If it doesn't make the error go away then it's something that that
line will not correct. In that case I would recommend you uninstall
DQSD, reboot, rename the 'Quick Search Deskbar' folder to something
else (like 'Quick Search Deskbar backup'), reinstall DQSD, reboot,
turn it back on.

If, after a clean install, you still receive the error then it
eliminates DQSD as the source of the error - leaving most likely
permissions or antivirus 'script-blocking' as the culprit. With
these I can only offer very vague advice since every computer
configuration is different.


 When I reload DQSD with !enter the message is
 instantaneous, it doesn't even have to think about
 it. It acts like it did not read what I put in there.

Depending on the speed of your computer, loading DQSD can be nearly
instantaneous. On my P4-1600/512mb it loads in about a quarter
second. I have several searches disabled (mostly 'social' and
'shopping' searches which I will never use). The thing that 'takes a
while' is the dynamic generation of the DQSD menu, which on my PC
takes about 3 seconds. I can only dreadfully imagine what that is
like on a slower computer. Even though I use DQSD every waking
moment (it seems) I hate using my wife's computer (P3-850/784mb)
because searches in DQSD take up to ten seconds to load. In that
time I could have opened a browser and typed the URL in manually. Of
course, she ALWAYS has at least 50 applications open - so I can see
how her system can operate rather sluggish.

Shawn K. Hall

RE: [DQSD-Users] Incorporate Google desktop search into DQSD - WORKS!

2004-11-04 Thread Shawn K. Hall
Hi Tom,
 
  Apparently Firefox doesn't like using innerText on div's.
  Try this again, method 2:
http://reliableanswers.com/x/dqsd/ggd-discover.asp
  (you'll need to copy/paste the source for
  http://www.google.com/search?q=dqsd in there again)
 
 Doing this in Firefox gives : Failure! Could not determine
 key. The same in IE :-(

This would happen only if the key did not exist in the Google Search
page. Sorry to ask:

1) Are you sure you have Google Desktop installed and running?

2) Did you disable the 'Google Integration' option in Google Desktop
to 'Show Desktop Search results on Google Web Search result pages'?


It won't work, of course, if it's not installed. The detection
method (though NOT the search) also requires the 'Google
Integration' to be enabled. After determining your Google Desktop
Key and setting the DQSD variable to that effect, you no longer need
to have the Google Integration option enabled.

Shawn K. Hall
