  1. Yeah... But now pretend it's 1963. This is clever.
  2. Today I Learned... you can convert from upper case to lower case like this! Clever design hidden in plain sight. See for yourself
  3. Also I think the Mean VI coerces the inputs to DBL. This is not always desirable. Maybe time for a native VIM?
  4. Toggl is free. They do have a paid for tier which I tried for several years, but the free tier is perfectly usable for simple things.
  5. @Lipko have you tried toggl? I used it for many years when I was a freelance to track my time. It was ok, but half the time I forgot to start and stop the timer. I suspect having something monitoring your files is also going to be pretty inaccurate.
  6. We need a NAS for Rolf and ShaunR and a few others around here. I am pretty sure we cannot replace them!
  7. Not entirely related, but I got in big trouble in my first real engineering job. The company was moving premises and we all helped pack up. I had a cupboard next to my desk filled with all these weird old cables which I happily threw out as I did not recognise any of them and just assumed they were junk. Turns out we needed them to support some old telecomms equipment from the days when everyone seemed to have their own custom cables! Cannot recall how the story ended, I think somebody did some dumpster diving and managed to find the bag! I kept my job 🙂
  8. Synology is great, I love it for my home NAS. But.... I have a strong suspicion we are all having a sensible conversation in response to a spam original post. 😂
  9. I can say without any doubt that online clothing stuff is good quality or not.
  10. This is how I include the RTE as part of an installer. Note: outside of the scope of the installer I manually unpack the relevant NI distributed RTE
  11. I would definitely not use a Swap Values here as it just makes the code confusing. Of the three I think the top is the most natural (but there is something about the inner dequeue which does not sit well with me).
  12. I just include the whole runtime and don't bother trying to cherry pick the perfect dependencies. I did try this once upon a time but could never figure out the right dependencies.
  13. Nice idea hooovahh, I did not think to solve it this way. I already have a nice Steel Series mouse which comes with a macro configurer and I have some set up for LabVIEW but I always forget to use them! This might be one I remember to use 🙂 My problem with using the middle mouse button is that unless other applications use it already (like Chrome or Firefox to close tabs) so you need to make it application specific. My Steel Series configurer has a way to do this but it seems to be a bit clumsy especially when dealing with multiple versions of LabVIEW and then switching over to a browser mid session. Is this XMouse Control thing any good?
  14. Today I Learned: you can pan around the block diagram by pressing Ctrl-Shift and then clicking and dragging the left mouse button! Not as useful as middle button dragging, but still interesting.
  15. As suggested here This is something us LabVIEW devs have gotten used to not having but is now so common in other graphical tools. Pan to scroll the block diagram or front panel seems like something I would actually use quite regularly.
