I've been using it for a few weeks now.    It's great.    Couple things:

-If you get disconnected -- F5 to renegotiate the same connection

-Mozilla type browsers like SeaMonkey and FireFox, and, as of recently, Google Chrome.  I've been using SeaMonkey from my home PC; however, if you have to do work over a KVM switch on your desktop --KVM requires IE.  For that purpose then, I also switch to IE on my home pc.

-Virtual desktop software _does_ work -- but, if you use ExeDesk lose the system tray icons and deskbar switch.  Right-click & use the "Windows organizer" to switch desktops or define short-cuts for next ~ previous screens.  I use ^%> and ^%< (on home PC) and +%> and +%< (on remote).

Use CompareSuite's keyword tree to navigate differences

You can use CompareSuite's keyword tree to navigate differences (click the image to expand it):


If you're having to redo CompareSuite compares this might be helpful.

Drag & drop a set of .HTML compare suite outputs on script -- it
takes current CompareSuite settings & recompares based on what's in the source ~ targets within these files. Places outputs in a directory stamped "Recompare_yyyy-mm-dd_hh.mm.ss"...

Use an UNC list(vs.attachment) for internal emails

I just received a message from networking indicating my mailbox size was too large. This is largely due to mailing of large attachments. If much of your mailing is on an internal intranet anyway -- rather than clog up mailservers-- I recommend using these scripts to create 'UNC' lists for your emails.

Script Link:  !makeUNCList.au3

Script Link:  !makeUNCList.vbs.zip

If you drag~drop a list of files from a shared ~ network drive unto the compiled version of this script--they resolve to an 'UNC' list which you can paste into your emails. They then open like a hyper-link.

You'll need AutoIt to compile the .au3 script.

You'll need PrimalScript to compile the .vbs script.

Script Link:  !makeUNClist_add_ql.vbs

This script creates a Quick Launch item for a compiled version of !makeUNCList.au3 or !makeUNCList.vbs

In EXAMPLE1 -- I drag the ".vbs" file atop !makeunclist.exe -- resulting in my clipboard being set to the fully qualified file name. It also works with multiple files and on files open from a mapped network drive dragged to the quick launch shortcut in EXAMPLE2. EXAMPLE3 is how I use the UNC list in an email.


Create Inserts from CSV via WebFocus and VBS

1. Create a simple webfocus report by dragging tablename to
output painter
2. Set output to 'COMT'
3. Run report
4. Drag resultant .CSV unto .VBS
5. Execute resultant .SQL

In this example I'm simply backing up a table. However, you could use the same concept to create a WebFocus report from multiple input sources and then if you name your output with 'tablename', and use the correct 'columnname' values for headings -- use to feed another system...

Find Results(alt+r in CR Formula Editor)

When using the Crystal Reports formula editor -- you can use alt+r to bring up a cross reference of the formula within the report.

To use click on a single formula from the field-tree, right-click ~ find results to find all references within the report.

Goal: Look for repetition ~ duplication & eliminate...

Principle observed from Pragmattic Programming: DRY (don't repeat yourself).

World Clocks ~ handy Google gadget

If you deal with multiple time-zones - this is a handy gadget. I replaced 'clean clock' on my Google sidebar with this.
