    For Mac and Linux, here you go:

    #!/bin/sh

     

    # (rev. 1) Get rid of -E: we don't want no stinkin' regex.

    grep -d recurse $@ $HOME


    Oh wait, I forgot one major feature.

    #!/bin/sh


    # (rev. 1) Get rid of -E: we don't want no stinkin' regex.

    grep -d recurse $@ $HOME |tee /tmp/pick

    nlines = `wc -l /tmp/pick` 

    line = `expr \( 1 + $RANDOM \) \* $nlines / 32768`

    # (rev. 2) Don't forget to open something randomly.

    open "`head -n $line |tail -n1 |cut -d: -f1`"


     

    Looks like you are a good candidate for Spectate Swamp Shack. Maybe even the front of the class. Want to join?

    I hope you're starting to get it now....

    I would imagine that he is proud because:

    a. This is a hoax, and he's managed to hoodwink the developer community.  This whole thing reeks of shenanigans.  From http://spectate-swamp-source.blogspot.com/ : "The Source Code for Desktop Search:(10,000 lines of Visual Basic code in One routine)".  Sounds like he's intentionally pointing out how absolutely WTF his code is. Furthermore, he posted here, so I would assume that he has at least read an article or two.  He would have to know that his code is atrocious.  

    OR

    b. This isn't a hoax, and he actually thinks his Desktop-Search-video-book-random-wooden-table method of data management is path to enlightment.  In which case, all of this exposure is the best thing he could ask for.  When was the last time thousands of people noticed something you did?

    You completely let us down. Where are your 'feeding the troll' tags at least?

    We were really trying to not let him know about ways to run this on Mac or Linux btw.

    But at least use the tag... it is starting to dominate the tag cloud!

    Thanks for all the ridicule. A few good points got brought up along the way. Laugh or not at least people are looking. I just registered with Sourceforge.net I'll be wanting the swampies over there. Not all were laughing. Maybe the guy next to you GETS IT



  • Thanks for the Mac info

    Wine sounds like I need to know a little more. Maybe my Mac friends will give it a spin.

     

    Thanks

    Java is not an OS.  Thanks for playing.

    However, Java would be a good shot if you wanted to make your code portable to other platforms with minimal effort.  In Java, you can even write a program that'll run on a cell phone.

    I'm afraid you only have yourself to thank for.

    @SpectateSwamp said:

    Maybe the guy next to you GETS IT

    There's nothing to GET.  You just made the utmost redundant piece of "software".  You made a text search function, without an editor.  You built an CLI for one sole function: to search through one text file.

    On top of that: documentation is non-existent and learning to use your CLI costs half a day of time.  While your biggest competition (Notepad.exe) takes about a minute for a novice computer user to learn, understand and use.  Sure, notepad can't play video's at random, but that's why we have Windows Media Player and it's "shuffle" feature.

    Your program lacks basic features, and the feature present takes long for an average user to apprehend.  The "benefits" of having all your data in text files are ridiculous (I can perfectly edit any form of data on any sort of OS) and all that "metadata" you detest because of it's complexity is actually quite simple: if my dad wants to add a caption to a picture as 'metadata', he just types the caption in at the bottom of the program he's using.  Hell, he wouldn't know metadata if it hit him, but he's using it every day.

    Seeing that you and my dad might be from the same generation, I gave him your desktop search to test.  He called it rubbish (and me with it for suggesting such crap as a desktop search replacement for his Desktop Search in Vista).

     So, your program sucks on features, sucks on usability (according to the random common man, in this case my quite computer-illiterate dad) and your code is a mayor suck. You want your Desktop Search to become something?  Get a book and start reading about what changed in the last 30 years.

    It does, however, say this:

    One could quite easily argue this code is an example of that - after all, "content" also covers the source code itself, and that is pretty damn painful to read.

    Are you serious?  Is there any country in the world where you could openly advocate its violent overthrow and not get in trouble?  It is a weird thing to put into a TOS document, and I'd be interested to hear the history on the decision to include this.  It's probably some lawyer advising excessive CYA.  I guess survival could be considered self-serving.  I'm not sure how this matches with puritanical, though.  If we were talking about a wardrobe malfunction, you'd have a point.

    I agree. How someone makes software that advocates a violent overthrowing of the government is beyond me... but to use another site simply because they don't allow software for this purpose is pretty ridiculous.

    What exactly would you need hosting for that might be under some gray area here?

    Yes. Advocating the violent overthrow of the British government is a long-standing tradition, dating back centuries. That's pretty much how all of our governments got started (by shooting, stabbing, or bashing the previous one over the head with a rock, depending on available technology). There's no law against saying that it's time to do it again, so long as you don't encourage people to commit specific crimes (which would fall under the general common-law heading of 'incitement').

    Disclaimer: INAL 

    There are no specific laws in the US for this either.

    I could post a website, start a club (cult, militia, whatever), start a religion, whatever. It can advocate and preach the overthrow of the government. It can go as far as it wants, right up until an actual crime has been committed.

    The definition of the limit is a bit of a gray area, and if your group becomes strong enough to be important you can expect to be under constant scrutiny by the government... But you have that right here. 

    I am not clear if you are really arguing that the US somehow restricts this right or not, but you would be wrong. Your line of: "US has puritanical and self-serving censorship laws"... I would love to know what your examples of this are. The US was started because of the 'puritanical and self-serving laws" in Britain... You seem to have forgotten about that.

    But of course, you will just reply with your notions of "Go away shill! I have no valid reasons for what I say and I don't need any! Gah! You work for MS!!!1!!!!".

    Feel free to back up your (so far) wild, baseless opinions on the US.

    On the contrary, there's a very specific law in the US for this.

    That would be a crime:

    Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof -

    Interesting, I have never heard of a law on the books for this reason (as I said, INAL). There are MANY anti american militias in operation all over the US. They are allowed to operate in pretty much plain sight, as long as they don't make any specific threats against the government and they follow the law (the main reason cited for the Waco standoff was illegal firearms).

    Through simple google searches you can find the names of these militias and many of their websites (it doesn't surprise me many of these militias dont appear very web-savvy).

    So while this apparently 'catch all' law is on the books it is certainly not enforced very often in the light of day.

    Thanks for pointing that out though.

    Not quite immune, but most of that stuff has met with heavy opposition - they've been trying to increase the detention limit past 28 days for three years now, with no success at all.

    Not quite immune, but most of that stuff has met with heavy opposition - they've been trying to increase the detention limit past 28 days for three years now, with no success at all. 

    TRWTF with this being that they're still trying to get it though.

    Never let it be said that the Government don't listen.</sarcasm>

    Maybe he tried out my challenge and nuked Windows because it's not necessary once you have his desktop search.

    Or someone at sourceforge.net decided to take evolution into their own hands and smite him, commando style.

    Or he may be busy "preaching to the choir" so to speak over at SF.net about how open source should be done.

    Anyone know what the delay is between SF registration and it showing up in the search indexes and projects database? Just poked around a bit with the most likely keywords and found nothing.

    Obviously SF hasn't yet seen the brilliance of SSDS and switched over to it. All the world's open source code in a single flat file. Oh, the glories....

    Give him some time, sheesh, you cannot honestly expect him to work quickly with that level of cluelessness....

    Spectate Swamp Desktop Search is now open source. (late Dec 2007)

    This is the most important program on the planet. Bar none.


     



  • Spectateswamp's icon

    Without him around spouting his nonsense, it's hard to come up with ways to make fun of him....

    So let's pick on his icon now!

     

    looks like he took a picture of a video of him on YouTube!  Or he created a baseball card of his own image.  Or a Magic: The Gathering card!  Or maybe he's actually even uglier than that, and used someone else's image. 

    haha since he's gone he can't defend himself ... hahahahah!!  I miss him *cries*

    Actually I believe it is:

     

    From the channel 9 forums. He has claimed multiple times that this is his real picture, taken from a video he has. If you look closely, you can see the reflection of whoever is videotaping him in his sunglasses.
