Kyrathaba Software / Proofreading Project Tracker
« on: November 11, 2017, 08:00 AM »
Although I'm developing a much more user-friendly GUI version of this software, I'm making available a Windows cmdline app that helps proofreaders track projects' project, customer transactions, and total words proofed, over time. The following online PDF help file contains the download link, installation steps, and usage instructions.

Started with QBasic, then some Pascal in college. Much later, Visual Basic 6.0. Later still, C#. Though I've dabbled with PHP and AutoIt, my go-to language is C#. My current project is a command-line utility that helps me track the progress of my paid proofreading projects.

Finishing Book 3 of the Third Wave trilogy by Rick Yancey, and about 3/4 through The Regulators, by Stephen King.

Do you always (repeatedly) get the same results when pressing the physical AM key as you do when clicking the software on-screen "buttons"?

Yes, it's consistent.

Thanks for doing those searches. I'll follow up on them.

Yes, it is a nice laptop. Quad-core and runs up to 2.8 GHz.

I updated the BIOS. No help though.

Living Room / Laptop stuck in "Airplane" mode
« on: September 06, 2016, 05:31 PM »
I have a HP Pavilion 17-g121wm laptop that says it's in Airplane mode but in actuality wireless is connected to internet. I can't get Airplane mode to actually work. The following screenshot shows Airplane mode ON and Wireless greyed out, yet I am connected the internet and posting this. In Settings, I try to toggle the Airplane mode toggle without success. It's stuck in the ON position. Again, though, the PC is not truly in airplane mode. I'm connected. I tried uninstalling my network adapter and rebooting. That didn't fix the problem. Tried an HP driver for my fn-F12 airplane key. No dice.


I'm looking for a black and white printer for a daughter. She's a college student with a chromebook. I want either direct usb connection or bluetooth, the simpler the better. So she can just connect, print her college papers, and be done. Needs to be something she can carry in the back seat of her car.

If you're interested in hearing his idea, contact him using the info in the OP.

It could be JSP, instead. Tom doesn't care as long as he gets the relational DBs set up and the logic of his idea translated into code.

Tuxman, is that an "I'm available" or a "I'm happy never to touch PHP again"?  ;D

A buddy of mine, Tom, has a really excellent idea for a website but needs a competent PHP/MySQL programmer. It requires an NDA to be privy to the details, but I've seen his presentation and I'm sold on the idea. If anyone on here fits that description, you can reach Tom at azpir8king@gmail.com, or on FB at https://www.facebook.com/AZPiR8King


Looks pretty nifty. I've downloaded it and am playing with it. It's 2D animation software.

Andrew Plotkin is a legendary coder, without doubt. Did anyone ever play Spider and Web? Genius!

I've updated my Source Code Line Counter program so that it can also count .cpp, .cpp|.h, and .xaml or .xaml|.cs file types.

I'm coding a text adventure using Ren'py, "Scions of Kel-Tek", and hoping to have it suitably ready for N.A.N.Y. 2017.

It takes from genres of RPG, visual novel, and CYOA books, and uses images and sounds as well. Ren'py is a pleasure to script in, and the developer frequently updates the software.

Made a note of that one, MilesAhead  :up:

Thanks, Joe Hone (yeah, I'm about eighteen months late, I know).

I'm currently reading For Love Of Mother-Not by Alan Dean Foster, the first of the Flinx novels.

I've been using LastPass premium since August. Love it!

Yep, VidCoder works. I used it to convert movies to MP4 format, so they'll stream properly from my WD Cloud.

I watched Ex Machina over the weekend. Good sci-fi flick.

Gotcha, mouser. Well, the tool our IT department used lets you submit URL links that you state are outdated (which is really true in our case, since they're no longer on the website). Supposedly, these submissions alert Google that the site needs to be re-indexed and cached search results that are no longer valid need to be expunged.
