Re: British English -- should I?

Still going, yes. I had no idea quite what I was taking on! I think I'm about 2/3 of the way through. There are a couple of things I need to investigate more closely - places where I want to change - ize to - ise but doing so affects a shortcut so I've kind of parked those for the time being - and o...

Re: British English -- should I?

Ah yes, the happy days of

10 print "hello world"
20 goto 10

then typing run, pressing enter and walking away from the Commodore 64 in the shop.

Enough already. Both irrelevant and making me feel very old. :masked:

Re: British English -- should I?

I agree that a construct with 'or' is preferable, as I've already said. As long as everyone else is happy :) On goto, as the original didn't use it I didn't assume that element of mbaas' suggestion would be taken up so didn't comment. Possibly as many of us have a programming background we would be ...

Re: British English -- should I?

That works. Agreed on the spaces too.

Re: British English -- should I?

That's me not paying enough attention again.

I don't like / in sentences, so something with 'or' feels better. But you're the boss :biggrin:

Re: British English -- should I?

I'd say open focussed file or folder in new tab, I think. But you're in charge of the style of the language and both of the other suggestions work too.

Re: British English -- should I?

Apparently, even this -- allegedly easy -- job is taking longer than I might have expected. :) One thing -- I've spotted this a few times and keep coming to the conclusion that I'd figure it out in context and I'm not sure I have. An example: 1248: Open the focused folder (resp. go to the focused fi...

British English -- should I?

I have started work on making a British English version of the language file. It's obviously a deeply trivial job considering the vast amount of work required for non-English translations and mostly I only did it for my own interest. My first pass through the file has changed "color" to "colour" and...

Re: Regex renames

Thanks!

I'm not sure I use any other tools that use the VB6 regex engine. I have some (very generic) regex notes I've used in the past for other things, but they didn't help me get this right.

I guess I might find documentation for it somewhere on the Microsoft website? I'll go look.

Regex renames

I had an odd (and slightly self-induced) problem -- I accidentally activated a backup program that had been configured for a laptop I'm upgrading from on a new machine without protecting the older backup. Didn't lose any data, but everything got moved to an archive folder with everything renamed to ...

Re: File Managers

Interesting -- if occasionally a little flamey -- thread. For what little it's worth, I've used several file managers over the last quarter century or so. Back in DOS days -- no, let's not. Of historic interest only, although I would say that the one everyone still remembers I really, really dislike...

Re: Folders in paper folders

Aha. I may have used shift-del, from my custom menu.

Wipe also attacks the real folder, I think.

But something I did moved the folder to the recycle bin - can't work out what, now.

Folders in paper folders

I accidentally added a folder to a paper folder. Deleting the folder from the paper folder using the delete key deleted the folder from its real location (compared to delete key removing an item from the list where the selected item is a file.) However, using "remove selected item" (#776) from the p...

Re: COVID-19

I think we need to get away from the idea that we can protect ourselves with masks. There ARE masks that will protect the wearer -- but for the foreseeable, we need our health services to be the primary recipient of these. Plus which, that level of protection has to be cared for, carefully managed, ...
