Thanks, Noblejoker! I appreciate the link.

Yes, it certainly IS different than the newer version I had installed.  :Thmbsup:

Gizmo's freeware have moved screenshot captor up to the number 1 spot now.  :Thmbsup:


I was just going to post the same thing. Congrats, mouser, on the well-deserved recognition!  :up:

What do you all use to always have a file/folder sort to the bottom?
I've seen people use prefixes like "zzz_"

I use the underscore to put them at the top, and z's at the bottom. It works.

I don't like ! or ~ though for the reasons mentioned above - scripts, etc.

Same here: underscores for the top of the list and z's for the bottom. Works well and I have yet to see any incompatibilities.

FYI regarding Microsoft Security Essentials.  Starting in October, in addition to being free for home use, it will also be free to small businesses with up to 10 computers.

Great news! Been testing it for a while for my wife and wishing it was a legal install for me. We love it on her Win7 32bit laptop.

The ability to import videos is a great idea; could either be done picture-in-picture with narration or in sequence. If picture-in-picture is out of the question perhaps a narrative audio track along with the imported video/audio would be do-able.

For example, I have a video of last year's Spring Concert, where the 3rd grade class was on stage singing and a kid did something really funny, and it'd be great to speak while the imported video/audio was going, to alert viewers to the upcoming highlight.

But maybe that's getting away from the intent of the application (I hope not! :D).

The option for an interview-type scenario is interesting. Sometimes you don't know what to say in a given situation ("Gee, I really should record something for my boys today, but I don't know what"), and a list of questions might give some ideas.

Sweet. I'd volunteer to beta test this app for you, for sure!

Yeah, that's good, mouser.

Would you be able to create options for saving video files to a hard drive as well, such as iPhone-compatable video files?

...the "Webcam Recording/Diary Utility" sounds like a great way for parents to make a video scrapbook of their kids as they are growing up...



I totally agree! I used to use iDailyDiary to note things my twin sons did so they could read it when they're older. How much cooler would it be for them to be able to SEE me record these things... hold up a picture they've drawn, see my facial expressions (if I don't break the camera  ;)), hear the intonations of my voice... Awesome idea!  :Thmbsup:

What is broken with Win7?

I keep getting a "Program is Non Responsive" error on both my 32bit Win7 notebook and 64bit Win7 desktop. I've tried an updated NIC driver (which seems to have solved the non-refreshing Windows Explorer phenomenon) but I generally get these "Program is Non Responsive" errors at least once or twice a day. It also happens with Outlook2010. I reboot my notebook daily, so I'm not sure what's up with that. I used to reboot the desktop weekly, but with Win7 sometimes after running for a couple of days I get the errors and must reboot to get work done (send email, search for documents, perform file/folder maintenance, etc).

I find myself agreeing with slowmaker and Carol - please don't do it. I agree that it would negatively impact how visitors view the site. The analogy of sticking your finger in a fan or shooting yourself in the foot are very good.

I also agree that having some merchandise available at a reasonable cost would be a good alternative source of revenue, while keeping some special merchandise set aside for special gifts and such.

So, in a word (or 6), please don't test the Google ads.

Wow, 30 screencasts in one month is a huge undertaking, mouser.  :huh: Good luck!

If we don't see you again until late September we'll know you burned yourself out and went on vacation.    :Thmbsup:

Got my mug, thanks a lot!  :Thmbsup:

My wife said, "That's nice, Honey."  Hmm... I'm sure I'll get more of a reaction when I use it at work and explain what DonationCoder.com is.

I thought the Firefox thread might have come from the "Humor" section.  :P

Thanks for the newsletter!

I find Audacity pretty easy to use. Granted, I don't use all the menu options, but I find it easy to find what I need.

I forgot to mention that it also can save as MP3.

The version still in Beta handles MP3 tags better, though.

I use Audacity to make pre-recorded radio shows; it meets my needs nicely.

It's available here: http://audacity.sour...net/download/windows

Not as such. But I was thinking of allowing you to apply a CSS style sheet to editor, which would get much the same effect. How does that sound?

I think that would probably work fine. Thanks for being flexible. :)

I figured that asking you to port it to PalmOS would be asking a lot.

Nice work, CWuestefeld! I've been looking for a diary like this for a long time... ever since the one on my Palm PDA refused to work with my latest hardware. So frustrating to lose your info because of an inability to save data in a common format! Good idea and good job on implementing it.  :Thmbsup:

Can I make an observation or two?

I just downloaded/installed version 1.0.3288. The navigational buttons for moving between entries are really close to the calendar buttons, and I clicked on one of the calendar navigational buttons by accident, after entering some things into an entry. When I went back to look later I realized that some info was missing, so I did a little test, typing in some numbers in this series: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (with no space after the 1) and the only thing which was saved was the data prior to 5, 4, 3 (with no space after the 3). It appears that the last 6 characters I type are lost if I click on a navigational button in the calendar itself without clicking on anything else first.

Questions: Is it possible to relocate those Entry navigation buttons to the area immediately above the list of entries (or perhaps incorporate a Save button)? Also, is it possible to make the font style and size preferences permanent?

Thanks a lot for all the work you did on your diary program. I don't suppose you might port it into a Palm OS-compatible application?   :D

Wow, I never would have thought it - what a list of features!  http://www.google.com/help/features.html
Thanks for the heads-up, Zaine.

Thanks again, fellas. It's obvious that a lot of work goes into this newsletter.  :Thmbsup:

I obviously haven't checked for updates very recently.  :tellme:  I'll be taking care of that in a couple of minutes...

I forgot to mention that I use it with Windows Explorer on XP.

TeraCopy rocks! I've been using it for over a year, and lately have been using the beta version (2.0 beta 3) with no adverse effects.

You have choices such as replace, replace all, skip, skip all, overwrite, and overwrite all. Very nice! :-*
