Notices for 26th February 2007 to 21st March 2007

Monday, 26th February 2007

Well, no new updates for over a month, but I’ve gathered up a few things now. First and foremost, I have fixed my Grippie REALbasic classes to resolve a significant flaw in the design. I mistakenly believed that the size grip in a dialog box is smaller than the one used in a document window (since it stood to reason), but in fact this was due to me using a smaller width scroll bar than normal. (Anything I can change, I will.) I always get really nervous at release time for anything – what have I slipped up on and broken this time – so do let me know if it’s still broken! I have no idea if anyone has even ever downloaded it (aside from bots) but I hope it proves useful to someone, somewhere.

Likewise, I have no idea how many fans Bug of the Moment has, but if I do have any, they may be a bit disappointed with me :) Thus, Bug of the Moment is also updated with a new entry with a variety of creepy crawlies.

I’ve added another icon to my favicons page, and a list of my selected Firefox extensions in case anyone wants a recommended list.

Another Bug of the Moment entry today.

Wednesday, 21st March 2007

I have just released what seems to be my first ever public Windows-only application: a filename batch rename tool that uses a list of regular expressions to rename multiple files at once. It uses the same syntax as Batch-RegEx. It is a personal project that I find extremely useful, but as always, once it’s reliable enough, it is worth posting for the public at large.

Like Batch-RegEx, it has many limitations that are simply due to a lack of time or desire to implement but could easily be resolved should any interest arise.

The irony of it having “MacApps” in its URL is not lost on me … one day, I need to find a satisfactory method to rename that part of my site once and for all. Redirect? RewriteRule?
