Making Fujitsu ix500 scanner’s CardMinder Viewer not globally steal the Alt-F3 shortcut

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/30

I hate applications that globally install Windows shortcut keys without the setup/install either warn about it or make it configurable.

In this case it is about CardMinder Viewer that ships with the Fujitsu ix500 scanner and installs a global shortcut, by default Alt-F3.

CardMinder Viewer is especially bad because the “settings” are not in the application: the settings are part of the Windows notification area (usually on the lower left of your screen; many people call it “the tray” as it was called tray in the Cairo research that led to Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.5).

Some links on assembling a proper Katalon .gitignore file

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/29

I used these links to find out what entries a Katalon .gitignore file should contain:

Combining the above, the .gitignore file needs to at least contain:

/.classpath
/.project
/.settings
bin/lib/
Libs/
/bin
/Libs
.settings
.classpath
settings/internal
/.svn
/bin/lib/Temp*.class
Reports/
.project
/libs/Temp*.groovy
bin/lib/
bin/keyword/

(funny that .svn should be in a .gitignore file and that various combinations of casing are used)
