SSH
screen
irssi
(and vim as a close fourth.  I suppose if you count instances used, vim moves above irssi and irssi above screen, making the list ssh/vim/irssi/screen)

I don't know about opera, but you can definitely live with just Mozilla

I'm possibly interested, but the project I'm planning on working on requires a library that may not work too well with the latest VS... we'll find out, I suppose.

Well, it's been a few months and finally the IRC channel that I started ( ##video on freenode ) for the community has begun getting users.  Hopefully soon we will see the forums getting used as well as people who aren't planning to be "regulars" visiting and staying around a while  cheesy

CRT > LCD for any sort of image manipulation (especially if you get a 'multisync' or 'multiscan' one Cool).

You could use a file access monitoring program (like one of the ones from winternals - now part of MS) on the hive files, not sure how much better than that you could do...
9  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Video Production Support website and forum on: August 19, 2007, 12:47:41 PM
I have read and/or am a member of all of those Cool

Video Help is targeted at the hobbyist and is mainly support for software and file formats. 
AfterDawn is similar, targeted at the hacking culture and the hobbyist for how to get things working.
Doom9 is targeted at "DVD backup resource(s)" and while more general than the above two, it has a similar target. 

Video Production Support is targeted at the professional and prosumer (and maybe even the consumer) markets for helping with production as a primary focus, not the software/hardware used for it (although it will help with that). 

MediaCollege is the closest to what I am doing by far, but the community there is mainly users of Dave's MC media player and not a general community. 

I know that I need more content, the problem I have is that I do not want to make all the content myself and discourage visitors from submitting their own.  I have begun an IRC channel for the website and hope to embed a java client on the page soon, hopefully this will get more visitors, but ideally the forums is where "it will all happen"

I suppose if even with me explaining it in a forum such as this that some people are not seeing exactly what I plan to do that maybe I should put a more in depth description of what I plan on the site.

Perhaps chicken + egg syndrome ... need contributors/articles etc. to have something to look at but is hard to get a community going without something to attract people.
Yea

How about starting out by having reviews of useful software for video production? Including quick/free/cheap ideas as well as mid range and pro offerings. Reviews may at least stimulate some debate.
I don't plan to be a ratings or review site, I plan to offer a community and learning/support/troubleshooting environment.

A few getting started tutorials would be good too to attract newbies to the site.
Yea, I wrote one (it's not a "getting started" tutorial, admittedly), but  I would like to encourage others to submit content as well.

You are facing a lot of competition in this area as there are some cracking sites already doing what you want to do.
Really? The only thing close that I have seen is forums and howtos for specific products from commercial ventures.

12  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Dev-C++ Discontinued? on: August 16, 2007, 12:07:55 PM
So let me tell you about this compiler : Devcpp was only free compiler & It was the only alternatives in the days where proprietory products survived.For newcomers there are very few options available right now,while learning C++.Some of the alternatives are :
Dev-C++ is not a compiler.  It is an IDE.  It is offered for download with gcc-mingw.  You can use it with any compiler, I have mine configured to allow me to use Borland's free compiler or gcc (at my option).  You could just download a new version of gcc-mingw if you want an updated compiler.

I haven't found the disc that has it on it yet, but meanwhile, this does basically the same thing:

For burning the final cd, CD Burner XP Pro is free.

There's a small, free utility that will run system open on a file (windows only, sorry, you gotta do something fancy for Mac, or you just make everything but index.html be hidden) based on a text config in the same directory.  I'll find the name of it and details tomorrow and post it up.

My most recent project is a (free) Video Production Support website with content, howtos, etc. and community forums, intended to build a community of both video professionals and amateur video makers.  Feel free to tell me if you like it, what needs improvement, or even if you despise it.

Thanks,

A simple database will do it.  I had one of these that I built with dataease many years ago, but I lost that HDD.

18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Do you know a good image viewer with CMYK support ? on: August 12, 2007, 06:33:48 PM
I think it is a color management issue, as even ImageReady shows it as the "bad" colors.  What app did you use to make this?  If photoshop, try disabling color space management and see what happens.

Constantly running:  bash (quite a few instances), sshd, screen, irssi (x20), icecast, ices2 (x2)

Top 3 apps that I use:
1) irssi (via ssh, then screen)
2) vi
3) firefox

if I could put 4, thunderbird would be there, but I hate email anyway, so I really don't care  cheesy

I haven't donated?
Why?
I don't trust paypal.  I've heard too many horror stories.  I will not open an account with them, I will not give them my CC number.  Anyway, I hate credit cards and debt to begin with.

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Am I the only one who hates smooth scrolling? on: July 16, 2007, 10:32:16 AM
No.  Although, I do see some usefulness to it [when I'm putting something done on a computer on-air for TV, it looks pretty, it also creates a nice impromptu teleprompter].
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Animation Software on: January 09, 2007, 07:23:45 PM
Update:  Someone suggested I try http://www.synfig.com/ .  It is currently very unstable on Windows, but it does what is needed, although it needs to be obfuscated via layers and layer groups with a luma key on a polygon for the mask and different blend methods.  Something else would be better, but for now it runs stable via colinux so I will set up an installer to use that for now. 
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Animation Software on: January 09, 2007, 06:16:43 AM
Here is a sample of what we want to do:
http://tonsofpcs.com/gfx/samples.html (note the base maps are just screen grabs from a TV channel near my home, we will be using our own for the regions and layering the images as appropriate, also note the animation there is a very simple one that I created to show an example)
I have personal software that I can use to pregenerate the animated layers so that in our production environment, they need only to create the masks or cut the layers.  If the masks can animate as well, that would be great.
