Re: hmm, weird scratch sound on Yojimbo search and subsequent boots

Now, I hear this little scratch sound when I boot. I hope this isn't

sounds like a hard drive-problem that accidentally occurred when you  
did the search with Yojimbo

Re: Time Machine?

There is a fairly detailed review Time Machine and some of the

. From the information presented there it is apparent Time  
Machine's granularity is at the file level. That is, Time Machine  
will copy any changed file in its entirety rather than  
incrementally. Note, it is only changed files that are copied.


Unfortunately this is completely true. I believe Yojimbo has some  
internal file-based handling of Yojimbo items - it's iSync  
compatible after all - but I believe this to be a completely  
separate issue and, correct me BB if you may, I don't think moving  
away form the database file is not such an easy task.


I hope it will happen tho. Luckily my database is less than a MB in  
size as I don't store PDFs and stuff in there, so I can handle the  
24 MB it takes daily.


Also, if you consider the Time Machine backup schedule, this is 30 +  
24 Yojimbo changes backuped at most per day.


My database has nearly 800 MB, steadily growing. Several other similar  
apps like Yojimbo don't work with a database but with single files. I  
guess it's possible to move away from the database, the first convert  
would be maybe somehow problematic.
I'm not a developer but if I see it right then the functionality of  
Yojimbo would be kept with single-files (please in normal formats -  
keep a pdf a pdf and txt a txt and so on) and an extra index-file  
(shouldn't be that big, should it?) for the internal Yojimbo-search.
If I would use Time Machine right now my database would be backed up  
several times a day and even a 500GB or bigger harddisk (base harddisk  
is 250GB) would be really fast full and Yojimbo would be the culprit  
that blocks the whole incremental thing because the database is so big…

No, it's being realistic. :) Time Machine works the way it does, and  
Yojimbo works the way it does, and neither will or should change. If  
there is any problem, I see it being with Time Machine having its  
default backup interval (1 hour) being _way_ too short.


Well…when I work 1 hour can be even too long when I look at the idea  
of Time Machine: Giving me regular backups, if not even versions of  
files I work with. Something like a local SVN made user-friendly. When  
I work on papers, translations or presentations (and I won't talk here  
about stuff that goes into development-directions) 1 hour can be even  
too long.


But that's my point of view - right now Time Machine has an even  
different problem (a clone-like backup is not possible and a nearly  
full 250GB-HDD cannot be even save once to a 250GB-HDD but that is  
another topic).
Maybe I just should look once again on alternatives with Time Machine  
now additionally in mind (besides slow upcoming new versions, tags not  
in Spotlight integrated - something that shouldn't be hard to  
implement but I think I wait now for over 6 months and longer). The  
advantage over any similar product called sync  is not so important  
anymore to me.

A question about synchronizing and amounts of data

2007-07-08 Thread Niels Kobschätzki

Hi!

Right now my iMac is in the workshop and I have to use the laptop of
my girlfriend when I need a computer.
Because every news-article that could be important in the future goes
into Yojimbo there'll be a lot of stuff to sync down to my iMac when
it got repaired.
Now my question: When I sync stuff to .mac, delete it later and do a
sync to .mac again. What will be synced from .mac? Will there be
everything synced with the notion has to be deleted or will the
deleted stuff vanish from .mac as well and only stuff gets synced
from .mac that isn't deleted in the Yojimbo on my account of my gfs
computer?

Re: Text Highlighting

2007-07-08 Thread Niels Kobschätzki

On 3/20/07, Derek Hardwick [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

Hey all,



snip


Anyhow, one feature which would really be useful would be a (better) way to
highlight text in Yojimbo.  Currently I have to define a highlight style
in TextEdit, which I can then apply to some selected text.   This means
either showing the ruler and selecting my style, or selecting some
previously highlighted text and copying the style, and then using
command-option-v to paste the style.

This works, but is hardly ideal.  It would be great if there could be a
key-sequence (toolbar item?) which would highlight text.  The key-sequence
is the key part, it would be nice to highlight text just as you would
underline or italicize it.  Of course, all it would be doing is applying a
pre-defined style, so users could always change the color or other style
characteristics.

This shouldn't be too tricky to implement, and I think it would be a welcome
addition for every student who organizes notes with Yojimbo.  PDF
highlighting would also be great (SUPER-great) but I understand there are
all sorts of technical issues with that :)


Would be great to be able to highlight/add notes to web-archives as
well. For PDFs maybe the stuff the Skim-people
(skim-app.sourceforge.net / open source) use, could be used.

Feature Request: Annotations in Web Archives / Native Skim support

2007-05-26 Thread Niels Kobschätzki

Hi!

I would really like to see an annotations-function for webarchives  
like the Firefox-Plugin Zotero (http://www.zotero.org/) is doing it  
(You can markup stuff in a webarchive you archived with it).


In addition I would like to choose the external PDF-application. It  
would be real great if there was Skim-support - therefore having the  
annotations/notes right in Yojimbo (or at least let them stay with  
the file when I open a PDF from Yojimbo in Skim)

yojimbo-module

2007-05-24 Thread Niels Kobschätzki

Hi!

Kerris last mail reminded me of the Yojimbo-module for Quicksilver.  
And I just tried to do a Command window with selection and add to  
yojimbo but I can't use Add to Yojimbo for a selected Finder-item;  
any idea what could fix that. And where can I ask for feature  
requests for the Quicksilver-module - here?
I would like to do the following: selct a pdf in Finder, Command  
window with selection (it's a QS-trigger in my case), tab, add to  
yojimbo, tab, add yojimbo-tags, tab, tags, enter (import to yojimbo  
with the tags))

Re: Question about .MAC sync

Been there. Done that. No help.

Consistently now, every hour, my laptop syncs, get's items on .MAC  
were replaced, i choose replace/merge (does not matter, really),  
and later on i get inconsistencies detected. The items though are  
all on the laptop, i just don't really care like touching data  
right now:)


The way I get it usually to work (already 2 or 3 times):
1. Switch off Yojimbo-sync at all machines
2. If you have it available: Use Syncrospector to unregister Yojimbo  
from Sync Services (do that on all machines) - Syncrospector is a  
free download for all ADC-members (even for the ones with the free  
membership)

3. Copy the good database to the other machines.
4. Switch on sync on the good machine
5. In the advanced preferences of the .mac-pref-pane reset the data  
(replace data on .mac)

6. wait some time (BB says 30 minutes)
7. Get your machine on a stable internet connection (no wireless -  
use an ethernet cable)

8. take your other machines back to sync
9. Open ~/Library/Logs/Sync/dotmacsync.log
10. when you are asked if you wanna replace/merge - say replace and  
have a look at the changes in the look. When the sync doesn't get  
through complete, sync again.


That usually works but sometime (like in my case the last time it  
needed 1 day until the changes showed up and since then it works  
perfect again and changes show up immediately)

I think Syncrospector is your friend. It's either included in the  
developer tools or you can download it independently as ADC-member  
(the free membership is enough for that) I'm not that sure about that.

On 5/7/07, Karen Holdeman [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

snip open PDF in Yojimbo from an external application

That shouldn't be possible because Yojimbo doesn't keep a file in the
file system but copies it into its database. Spotlight will find a
Yojimbo-item but from the way I understand it that's more or less a
link to an entry (and behind that entry is a link to the file in the
database). I guees if you don't do it this way sync will break because
Yojimbo can sync its own database but I guess sync services doesn't
offer to sync any files in the file system (for that there's stuff
like chrono sync).
I would like to see it as well that I can link from Bibdesk to PDFs in
Yojimbo but that's not possible because of the structure of Yojimbo.
