Re: Java Pros and Cons

I'm not saying Microsoft .NET or other commonly installed stuff is perfectly safe -- I'm saying that the ubiquity of Java (how many people who don't need it have bothered to uninstall it?) together with the upgrade process being a pain in the neck (so that people don't upgrade, especially those who ...

Re: Java Pros and Cons

Don, Microsoft upgrades are usually painless and happen in the background. Java updates happen very frequently (often because of security patches), and require active intervention every time - which is (a) a faff and (b) make Java very infrequently updated by many people, which means security proble...

Re: Ancestris versus Family Historian

I do hope that that those who insist they don't install/use Java also don't use Android Mobile Phones/Tablet devices, because the AndroidOS uses Java I can't avoid it on my phone, so have to accept and manage the risk by being careful what I install and where I browse to from my phone. I don't have...

Re: Ancestris versus Family Historian

It's still Java, Mike, which I don't install either. And it's a very old version as well!

No worries, Ann -- I'll do an email for you with that URL. I'm not seeing the same problem in Chrome... do you see it on any other web page? And is it only on that link on the FHUG website?

Ann, send the email now -- Jane is looking at the emails and has somebody working on some of the problems so the sooner she hears about them the better. INclude details of the URL on which you see the warning triangle.

Re: FHUG on the move

Ann, As Jane is very busy this week, she's unlikely to be monitoring the forums which is why she has asked that problems be emailed to here on the admin@fhug.org.uk account -- anything reported here will not be dealt with. When you do email her, can you include a screenshot of the red triangle, plea...

Re: Claverdon & Norton Lindsey parishes, Warwickshire - duplicated records?

My first thought would be to investigate the system of parishes at that time -- Genuki points out that Norton Lindsey was a curacy annexed to Claverdon... So if they were baptised in Norton-Lindsey by the curate and notes made of that fact for later entry in the registers, he might have written them...

Re: More query queries

I'm experimenting with including the identity of an individual within a shared note, something like: Individual: 3 Susan Isabel Dowling and then using the =Record() function to display the record associated with the individual in a query. =Record(3, "I") as the expression for a column (hard-coded nu...

Re: More query queries

Yes, that sort of fuzzy matching might be the best I can achieve in the query right now. Eventually there will be an option to 'query' via the plugin, but I want to get a version out there for beta testing and I'm up against other deadlines, so that bit of code might have to wait. 15 stories to do d...

Re: sorting tables by v

So I suspect the War + Name + whatever key is too focussed and not general purpose enough.
There will (perhaps) be an analogy that works, given a particular dataset. But yes, if somebody does not want to extrapolate and use a helpful library, I'll bow out.

Re: sorting tables by v

I suspect Helen may be thinking of textually indexed dictionary tables, that don't have a defined order. Helen is thinking of the generic case for tables, as none of them have a defined order. If you use table.insert without specifying a position , it adds the new entry at the end of the table, but...

Re: sorting tables by v

You need to stop thinking of 'a position' 'being set to anything'. There is not a pointer for the current position, or indeed any 'current position'. There are only a set of entries that you can access via their key. And if you need to insert another, table.insert adds it -- but you can't know where...
