BlueStacks is Not Free
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 22:47:55 +0000

I was led to believe that BlueStacks (an Android emulator) was free to use. So I downloaded it and installed it. But after using it only once for only a few minutes. The next time I started it up, I got a screen that asked me to pay $2 a month or download an Android app to try.

If that's the case, it's probably better to install an Android emulator from the Android development kit, which is really free. I already have several Android emulators installed to develop Android apps, so it's no big deal for me. But for everyone else who don't know about Android emulators, there are truly free ones out there.

TakeControl: Change Log
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 20:02:43 +0000

Version 3.1

The previous version of TakeControl spawns multiple windows to change owner and permission of files. The new windows would take focus away from your primary task, meaning you can't do any work while TakeControl is changing permission on large number of files.

In this new version, we hid the new windows, therefore, you can continue to work while TakeControl processes the files in the background.

Looks like I forgot to attach the batch script. It is now attached below.

Here is another example of using double quotes to provide piping of commands:

  call SetVariableToOutput.bat "echo "%file%" | java eGrep -c " for ""

where.sh (GPL)
Thu, 14 May 2015 22:53:26 +0000

Recently, I have installed quite a few virtual machines on my notebook computer. The virtual machines all share common folders, which are mounted via symbolic links. "where.sh" breaks down, because it does not search into symbolic links.

Therefore, I've modified "where.sh" so that it does. The new version is attached below.
