October, 2010 Meeting Notes

  • All Random Access
  • We decided to skip the video
  • Ward has a new 7" USB 480 x 800 monitor he got for his 65th Birthday
  • Mike Warot talking about Amazon services http://aws.amazon.com/free/
    • Terms
      • EC2 - Elastic Cloud Computing
      • Elastic Block Storage
        • Where you put things
      • S3 = another storage
        • It has a web address AND a torrent
          
          
  • (Click for link) Ward talking about Macro Express & AutoIT3
    • Macro Express Example Macro: pasting text into ANY application -- From the clipboard
      • This exists in 2 forms:
        • The form you see as the "high-level" macro-express language i.e. "commands"
          
                   Variable Set String %T1% from Clipboard
                   Keystroke Speed 10 Milliseconds
                   Text Type %T1%
          
          
        • and the "internal text macro format": This kind can be imported...
          
                   <TVAR2:01:03:><SPKEY:0010><TEXTTYPE:%T1%[01]>
          
          
          where, unfortunately, [01] means a x'01' - the one char making it difficult to edit with normal editors.
      • Ward's other uses
        • If you have an application where you "wish there were a shortcut key", you can define one in MacroExpress.
          • You simply say -- for example -- alt-G, BUT ONLY WHEN THE WINDOW SAYS EXCEL -- means to blah blah -
          • which can be a place to move the mouse and click, or a combination of keystrokes, etc.
          • Unlike for example Excel "VBS" macros, which are activated by Ctrl-<some key>, this applies when EVER the windows says "Excel", not just when the macro is loaded in the current workspace.

    • AutoIt3 - A Windows scripting language
  • Club Business
    • We decided NOT to have a November Meeting
