rebol.net has been down for a couple of weeks now

Maxim
hum... maybe Cindy should be alerted?
Bo
She has been. She said she talked to Carl about it the other night.

rebol.net has been down quite a while now...this is bad. Carl has to give someone more active (less busy) access or release the site for someone else to manage.

Comments on the blog articles do not seem to be working either
Bo
Agreed. I'm working on it every time I see him (about once every month or two).

What's the best way to search a block of blocks for specific values. Is there a more efficient way other then looping through each block?
would key-value scheme make it easier?
Sorry wronk group

Maxim
anyone here have linux SDK building ability? or can give me a linux SDK download link... I need to encap stuff for linux.

NickA
I have a Linux SDK license, but haven't kept a Linux machine setup for a while.

Maxim
Can anyone tell me if they were able to change the CONSOLE's title text using the SDK, once encapped.
the encap header entry:
Encap: [title "new title"]
doesn't seem to work for me... for the console... it works for the view menues
I am able to change everything... even the console's menu items and application information for the system (icon->right-click->properties) but can't seem to get the damned Console window to change its label when it opens up with an error...
I can change the title AFTER its opened (using easy win32 commands), but when it opens because of an error (like missing memory ) It always has a
sorry for the red colored bg...
(blue bg)
It always ...  has a title of REBOL/Pro   :-(

Have you tried changing the title from the resources section of the executable?
Maxim
yeah, but that didn't work... what I ended up doing is a text search/replace in the exe and that worked  ( just make sure you replace by the same number of bytes ;'-)
DocKimbel
I remember doing the same hack a long time ago too. ;-)
Maxim
Changing the resources did fix the highlights when hoving over the icon in the task bar and when looking at the apps properties.
using ResHacker to automate the process in my build engine.

I used to use the Windows API to change the title bar in free releases of R2.  You should be able to use this code to change the title bar of the console too:  http://www.rebol.org/view-script.r?script=no-rebol-in-title-bar.r
NickA
I also once made an AutoIT script to manage these sorts of things.  An old version of AutoIT had a tiny .dll which I'd include as binary encrypted data in my Rebol script, write it to disk, and then access it using Rebol's shared library interface:  http://re-bol.com/remove_rebol_title_orig.exe
Maxim
I have similar functions, its called set-console-title.  and position-console-window.    the above requires the window to already be open... my problem is that  the console opens up as part of an encap error. at that point rebol script is not running anymore...  :-(
