About Danny Staple

  1. Rob, I've been there and done that. I have a valid XP in a VM for some apps, and used it before for Evernote, but it is generally a really crappy way to do stuff. Clipboard integration is really dodgy, plenty of memory is hogged and in my experience it's a better user experience having a second machine and using synergy to link them, or Wine. it is a real shame that the web client is so vastly inferior to the desktop windows/mac clients - if it had only more of the features of the desktop (like key shortcuts and Drag n drop support) it would be awesome... Danny
  2. That is exactly what I am considering - I do a fair amount of development myself (hence the Linux usage) - so while it is a matter of how much time I have, this may be exactly the right route (who knows - perhaps divert Evernote from making a win/mac client at all and just focus on a web client as awesome as gmail...).
  3. Would I get more joy trying to get some of my favourite features suggested on the web app - or using greasemonkey scripts to hack on some of my own?
  4. stuff I have already tried: * Ensuring that the proxy settings work (I wouldn't be able to sync down if that was a problem would I?). * Logging out and back into Evernote * Destroying the complete wine prefix - which means all files and registry are fresh * running in a windows VM in the same location works - not ideal, better than a web client and manually syncing using drop box/copy paste - but not as nice as in Wine - a whole VM seems a bit much.
  5. I'm a premium user with evernote running on a number of my devices, including a Linux machine under wine. I had this running smoothly - where I could log my daily activites and plan through evernote, so I had nice notes on what I'd been doing, what I would do next as well as using it to grab websites and store scans etc. On all but this one computer, this works, but it stopped on the one computer in November. It will sync everything down from the servers, but refuses to send anything back up. The web client is just not as fast and useful. Being able to use ctrl-; to insert date times, copy/paste snippets, have multiple note windows open like my TODO search and my current log or task, having notes suggested based on current content (so I can see old lab logs possibly related to the problem) are all awesome features of the windows client, which worked in Wine pretty well. Until november, where something changed - and it won't upload my changes. It always ends with a "Connection terminated abnormally" and no changes are sent back up. I've exported enex files into dropbox to reimport them when I get to another machine - which is a bit of a bore. I've had a suggestion of exporting enex, renaming it to html, then copy-pasting back into the web client. All of which reduce the utility of this - especially when I had it working great before this. Since December, the support I have had has been pretty poor. The Christmas period accepted as a bit of a low activity time, we are now in the 3rd working week of January, and I'm unable to chat to anyone, and unable to get this sorted. I am wandering if some note with a particular guid is just failing to go upstream, or the local proxies are making a dogs dinner of stuff (but I can download easily enough)- but without support I am pretty blind here. The tickets in question are: 271457 315753 (a dupe of the first - please feel free to close this one) Help!
  6. I've been (mostly with success) running Wine 5.0.3 under wine on Linux quite happily. However - when there are problems - I am having trouble getting the download links. The https://evernote.com/download/ site shows blanks for it, perhaps unless I fake the user agent. So two things: If you are trying to use evernote in wine under Linux - there is an App DB entry for it with tips/tricks at http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=28945. Does anyone have the URL for the actual windows download - to save me having to do that? It would be great if the site would default to "choose your OS" if it didn't detect something it wanted.
  7. I've managed to get it mostly working in Wine on the current Centos - although I'd love a native client, Nixnote has been a bit of hassle. One thing to note is for it to work you will need to be aware of the following: * Selinux - this blocks a "low_mmap" thing that prevents evernote/wine from working. Unfortunately the automated bug reporter to alter defaults for the wine/evernote app didn't collect info properly, but I've allowed the eception locally. You'll need to do so too, or disable selinux (it does improve security, but comes with a hefty usability tradeoff). * IPtables - Evernote requires ports 80 and 443 to be open. * Winetricks- install the tahoma font for things to look correct. Se tthe winecfg so the app is started with a windows 7 config, and it should then work. I even get the evernote ads.
  8. I'll add my voice too. Being HTML is not a great excuse. I can think of a few different ways to indent: Use CSS (or even a local style) to add a longer left margin. Place the text into an LI, with list-style-list-indicator=None, and use list depth for indent depth. The text is (I'll assume) in a DIV or P tag. Add a table with no borders, and a blank leftmost cell for each indent depth, and the text paragraph in a rightmost cell. That was 3 in just 3 minutes thought - this is not that hard in terms of output - and in terms of the data model, perhaps having a CSS class "indent-level1" to N would make it easy. of course - I should be able to assume that it is in the data model already since the windows client works, and that I can paste web pages straight in. I wander if you can copy, paste into another app, indent/dedent there and paste back?
