AutoHotkey News: How My Mom’s ‘Kool-Aid’ Incident Foretold My Sense of Ethics

Howdy %Name%,

When I was 8 years old we were taking my older sister to the doctor for a checkup.  As we were driving down our street, a car backed-out in front of us and my mother failed to stop in time and rear-ended it.

I don’t recall how fast she was driving but the speed limit was 25 mph and it was a short road so I doubt she was driving much faster than that.  But here is where it get’s “interesting”.

My mother handed me her cup of “Kool-aid” and asked me to do her a “favor”.   She said she could “get in trouble for having” it and asked me to go pour it out behind a tree.

As a kid I can remember wondering why you can’t drink Kool-aid while driving a car and I remember getting nervous about it.

I don’t recall exactly what happened after that only that my mother wasn’t “hauled-off” for drunk driving which she should have been.    The magical Kool-aid was, in fact, red wine.

I realized this later because she got so many DUIs (Driving Under the Influence) I lost count.   One drunk driving incident was while she was driving my niece and nephew.   It’s truly amazing that she never killed anyone (or herself.) ☹

The thing is, even as a child, I could tell there was something dodgy being asked of me.

Honesty and Ethics are two things I look for in my employees.

I make sure we always provide incredible value and make sure the guys working with me understand that is our goal.   When we meet with clients my goal is their success (not ours).

AHK being flagged / How Dumb is Antivirus?

We’ve had a lot of people coming to us and asking if “AutoHotkey is safe” because they download it and it is being flagged as a virus.  GeekDude, an admin on the AHK Reddit, mentioned he’s also seen an uptick on the number of people complaining/asking if it is virus.

In this video I show just how “dumb” antivirus software is.   Just make sure you’re downloading it from AutoHotkey.com.  “Hackers” are using AutoHotkey BECAUSE it is so powerful.

You can take some comfort knowing you’re using the right tool when hackers (lazy people that want to automate your pc) are using your tool of choice!

Programmatically Getting the Text Under your Mouse

A few years ago I shared a v1 version of this script which was decent at getting the text under my mouse.  Descolada created a v2 version of UIA which allowed us to update our script to v2 which is even better than before!  You can check it out in this video.

Don’t Store your Passwords in Plain Text files

People often come to AutoHotkey for easily sending text (like passwords) with Hotkeys or HotStrings.  Unfortunately, most people end up putting their passwords into a plain text file which is a big “no-no” in corporate world.

Saving your passwords in your files also lends itself to accidentally sharing of passwords when you share your scripts with others.   Our Password Encoding tool makes it easy to (somewhat) protect you against the above.  You can see how we use it in this video.

AutoHotkey News 5/30- Holding over $1 Million dollars in Cash

Howdy,

During a hero call the other day we were discussing how some companies “lock down” and restrict employee’s admin rights to their computers which can make getting AutoHotkey installed.   It reminded me of when I went to work for Brinks (the armor truck company).  

Because of the financial nature of our business at Brinks our PCs and phones severely locked down.  I didn’t think to confirm I’d be able to install AutoHotkey before I took the job.

Shortly after being hired, I made it pretty clear to my boss that, without AutoHotkey, I would not be able to “do my job”.

She got me admin access but had to “move mountains”.  (Later I learned how I could have used AutoHotkey without installing it)

BTW- one of the cool perks was being able to go inside a “Brinks vault” and hold over a million dollars in cash.  They also had “buckets of Gold & Platinum.   Sadly, they didn’t allow us to keep souvenirs.  

My main question to you is:  Have you ever quit a job over having access to the right tools?   And why is it that businesses often make it so hard for their employees to be productive❓

Antivirus deleted all our .ahk files | AutoHotkey News May 2nd 2024

Howdy,

This morning I went to edit one of my AutoHotkey scripts and, to my surprise, it wasn’t there❗  Not only was it gone but the 7,733 .ahk files on our shared drive were also missing.  ☹

What would you do if all of your AutoHotkey scripts disappeared and were not recoverable?

Thankfully everything I do is under DropBox so we did a little digging and noticed that Rizwan’s new laptop had deleted all the files .  More specifically Windows Defender on his computer had deleted them (and DropBox obediently deleted them on all of our computers).

Thankfully, DropBox has a nifty feature to “rewind” folders based on a time period so it was easy to restore everything however this begs the question:

Why did Windows Defender delete them in the first place?

Antivirus software typically flags, and deletes, executables (like AutoHotkey.exe) but I’ve never heard of it also deleting the associated files.

This would be like deleting all your Excel Spreadsheets or Word documents if the respective Excel or Word executables were flagged.

It looks like Windows Defender is now using “AI” to broaden the files it flags when searching for viruses.  I could be wrong on this however I have no other way to explain the deleted files.

BTW- The latest AHK v2 build, 2.0.13, has been flagged much more than past versions.  Is there something wrong with this version?  Not likely!  If you watch this video you’ll see how I demonstrated that poor Antivirus tools are at actually detecting viruses.  They’re really detecting “power”, not intent!

AutoHotkey is an amazingly powerful tool! Which is exactly why so many Antiviruses flag it!  Why this particular build is getting flagged more than others is currently unknown however I’m pretty confident the problem is with antivirus tools NOT AutoHotkey.

BTW- As mentioned earlier I have everything under DropBox (and I have backup copies of DropBox) but I’m also going to start using this script which allows you to, easily, backup AutoHotkey files to a new location changing their extension (in case antivirus flags them in the new location).  You can see that script demonstrated in this video

I simply remapped Alt+b to send the letter v and my browser-back button to send Control+V.  In 30 seconds I was back in action!

AutoHotkey News 2024/04/18- My beliefs and what I stand for

Howdy

I want people to have a very clear understanding of who I am and what I believe in.  It ends up saving time for everyone involved.  So, to put it out in the open here are a few of my beliefs:

  • I believe in Equal Opportunity (not equal Outcomes)
  • I’m pro: Life; Gun; Business; Capitalists; Free Markets & Unconditional free-speech
  • I believe in personal responsibility & that charities, not the government, should help people. I often help people but it is MY choice, not some arbitrary gov’t that buys votes by giving away my money.
  • I’m a Libertarian and don’t trust either the Republicans or Democrats & wish all had term limits
  • I have no place for Racism in my life however I also think most people misuse the word and should probably be using “prejudice” in its place
  • I’m proud that I’m uncomfortably, sometimes painfully, honest.
  • I do what I say and I stand by my word.  Always!
  • My favorite authors are Thomas Sowell, Julian Simon, Ayn Rand, Dan Kennedy, and Jordon Peterson
  • I believe students should repay their loans; as I did
  • I have zero debt & my vehicles look like they lost a demolition derby (but they get you there)
  • I believe in myself and that man can achieve anything he puts his mind to
  • I believe wokeness is a cancer that is killing our society
  • I want more 1776 and less 1984
  • I believe my time is the most valuable thing I have & am willing to spend💲to buy it back
  • I believe Men & Women are different & that biological men should not be in women’s sports
  • While 10th, Not coveting your neighbor’s possessions is my favorite commandment          
  • Except for a few people, I don’t care what others think of me

Sadly many people in the U.S. have become completely intolerant of other people’s opinions.  I am NOT one of those people.  I wrote the above to help you understand who I am and, if you’re one of those people that can’t stand working with people that don’t share your opinion, feel free to unsubscribe.  Believe me, you’re doing us both a favor!

If the above doesn’t send you running away screaming, reach out to me by replying to this email and tell me which of the above meant the most to you.

Introducing AHK Mastery

Quite a while back a few AHK Hero members asked if we offered a “subscription” model for our courses (instead of purchasing each one separately they could have access to all courses).  While I liked the idea, I didn’t feel we had enough courses to justify the model.   Well I’m excited to say, with the launch of our newest course (see below), I decided to create the AHK Mastery program which allows client’s to subscribe (either monthly or annually) to our courses.  You can learn more about the AHK Mastery program from this video or on this page.

🆕Intro to VS code Course🏎️

Hopefully you’re aware that v1 is now deprecated and is not expecting any “official” updates.  While the exe is sure to be around for a while, we highly recommend you switch to v2. 

We’ve made our own version of AHK Studio that can edit v2 files however it does crash unexpectedly.   And we’ve done our best to patch SciTE4AutoHotkey however AHK Hero members continue to have ongoing issues where it changes the file associations of .ahk files thus, currently, we only recommend VS code for working with both AHK v1 & v2.

VS code is a true “IDE” Integrated Development Environment and is the “Ferrari” of tools for developing programs.  It’s more powerful than what 90% of us need however, currently it’s the best we have for working with both v1 and v2 versions of AutoHotkey.

We discuss our new course, and some of the specific benefits of VS code, in this video.

P.S. Some of you may my intro explaining some of my beliefs doesn’t have a place in business.  The thing is: I’m lucky enough to be able to choose who I work with and I provided the my beliefs to both attract those more like me and let people that don’t care for my beliefs to remove themselves from our list.  

It isn’t meant as a disrespect to those that believe differently.  I’m only following one of my core beliefs of being curt, to the point and honest.
