Don't have any more suggestions since I've been submitting them to you privately but just wanted to say I think this is a great app for anyone who keeps lists of urls/files to visit periodically.  thumbs up

I seem to remember something like this posted on the forum.. but if not, i'd like to second this request. I've run out of battery power before because the cord had come unplugged and I didn't notice.

it just depends on how many shirts we have to send out -- we have to set the qualification # to a threshold that will keep it affordable.  I would think 2-5 range.

try using the pipe character "|" to separate them.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Please recommend a clipboard & note manager with the following features on: October 28, 2014, 12:47:16 PM
Just for the record, here is how Clipboard Help and Spell comes out on your feature list:
  • - fast-as-you-type search like in Evernote or X1 client with keyword highlighting - CHS supported
  • - global hot keys to create new notes  (similar to GloboNote) - CHS supported
  • - capture rich text (including tables, font format, etc) and images - NOT supported by CHS
  • - note/clipping categories with ability to drag and drop - CHS supported
  • - open individual notes/clippings in their own individual minimalistic windows with always on top & transparency options - NOT supported by CHS
  • - paste text with stripped formatting (like PureText) - CHS supported
  • - Windows 8.1 x64 compatibility - CHS supported
  • - portability would be a plus - CHS supported
  • - alarms - NOT supported by CHS
  • - rearrange notes/clippings based on the urgency/time/flag - CHS supported
  • - simple table creation and formatting - NOT supported by CHS
  • - simple image in-place editing tools (crop, resize, rotate, draw text arrows lines on top, borders) - NOT supported by CHS
  • - keyword filter for note/clipping titles (similar to TreeProjects) - CHS supported
  • - local database with ability to sync over the net - network sync NOT supported by CHS
  • - ability to add document files in the database including PDF, Office, etc. and index the contents for instant search.  I know this is asking too much but i think it would really open up doors to people that deal with lots of information like myself.  X1 client for instance uses the OutsideIn libraries from Oracle (previously Stellent) that allow to view approximately 500 file formats without the native apps installed.  TotalCommander has a free plugin called uLister that utilizes the same libraries. - NOT supported by CHS

I should mention that it seems to apply to portably run applications only, and that I call them with relative paths
..\FreeCommanderPortable\FreeCommander.exe

Well that would explain it.. I think i can fix that.

Is it because they leave spam links in their profile/signature?
mwb1100 wins the prize.

Half the people we ban are caught because they (or the semi-automated bots that they use), create forum accounts and immediately fill in profile information that has spam text and links.  Their intention is that their forum account profile page will be accessible somewhere on the web and they will benefit by having those pages contain the spam links.  What they don't realize is that our forum code will specifically not show such spam links for a new user, and the admins get an email alert when a new user tries to do such a thing.

Sometimes spammers register, and don't post immediately

Well that's a clue.  They don't *post* immediately.. but, these are newly registered people. Something else gives them away..
Another clue is I wrote code to help me detect them..

Excellent question bernie.  And good guess stephen -- but not quite correct.  Who can guess (moderators not allowed to try), how the spammers were caught who didn't make a post (or even try to make a post)?
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: (Hypothetical): If DC Grouped Together...What could be achieved? on: October 26, 2014, 07:40:26 AM
I've been thinking off and on about Doco2 for quite some time now.. Some of those ideas are solidifying (using Mewlo as the foundation) while others remain in flux..  If people are interested what I could do is write up 5-10 pages on what I think it would look like -- a proposal of sorts.

FWIW  If i was surfing, found DC, opened a topic and malware was blocked... I wouldn't return or recommend.  Which would be bad.

Agreed -- if you find any sign that there was a remotely linked image in a post or signature on the forum that was in any way connected with a remote non-dc server trying to connect with your computer, we would take swift action to fix that.
But what Seraphim points out is that it may have just been a coincidence that you got the alert while browsing the forum.

Greetings. It's been a whopping 156 days since the last newsletter, and in that time..
 New threads started: 1,300.
 New posts: 12,000 (number of those deleted as spam: 468).
 New members who joined: 13,600 (number of those banned for spamming: 700).

See you on the forum!
-jesse (mouser)


2. NANY 2015 Event (New Apps for the New Year)

Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year (browse previous year entries here).

There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world.  Everyone who participates gets a commemorative mug.  You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool.  It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever.



3. User-to-User: Your Input Requested

We love nothing more than having interesting discussions on our forum -- and we love when new people participate in the discussions.  In each newsletter we try to highlight a few topics that we think might interest casual readers and that are good candidates for making your first post.



4. Mouser's Software Updates

I've uploaded some updates to many of my large applications since the last newsletter.  As always, you can find the list of what's new both in the online help pages (linked from each program homepage) or in the forum thread about the application (also linked from each program homepage).



5. Skwire Empire Software Updates and New Releases

DC member skwire is one of the more prolific coders of utilities on our site -- he roams the coding snack request section and pounces like a jaguar when he finds something that catches his eye.  He's released a ton of updates to his software since the last newsletter, including some updates and a few brand new releases:



6. Coding Snacks, Mini-reviews, and other Member Projects

We love to keep up with projects that our members are working on, and hearing what our forum members think of software they use.  If you're working on something interesting -- let us know!



7. Website Discoveries, Debates, Essays, Discussions

What's new in cyberspace? What exciting new sites have been discovered by forum members?  What's the current hot topic and debate? Read on to find out..



8. Specific Software Discussions

Some noteworthy discussions about specific software applications on the forum since the last newsletter.



9. General Software Discussions

Some noteworthy general software discussions on the forum since the last newsletter.



10. Entertainment, Games, and Humour

Here's a collection of some diversionary web browsing links posted on the forum recently.



11. Developer's Corner

This section highlights some discussions that might be relevant for not just coders and developers, but also people interested in entrepreneurial issues.



12. Security News

There were so many security-related posts on the forum in the last month that we have a section of the newsletter devoted to the issue.



13. Linux and Hardware Hangout

While the lion's share of technical discussions on our forum involve Microsoft Windows software, hardware and linux threads are becoming increasingly common.

If you can get this list filled in and kept updated, it would be extremely useful  Thmbsup

It means there is no attack or malware hosted on or coming from DonationCoder.
It could mean that you just happened to see these alerts while you happened to be browsing the DonatinCoder forum.

--

Another thing to check is if this alert pops up when you view certain posts on the forum -- it's always possible that someone has a photo in their signature or in a post that is linking to another site and that that site is pinging your machine when you load it.

Those are *not* donationcoder IP addresses.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google's new Inbox powered by Gmail on: October 24, 2014, 12:56:27 PM
There are two things about this new project from google that I find offensive:

First, the obnoxiousness of calling it "Inbox". Only a company like google or apple, with sufficient marketing muscle, money and willingness to bully, could get away with using such a common generic term and trying to co-opt it to refer to their product.
Second, and much more obnoxious, is the fact that it can only be run on the google Chrome browser.  When Microsoft used to play these tricks to force people to adopt their tools and kill off competition, we decried it as evil.. Google seems to think the rules don't apply to them.

I'm not clear what you are saying you saw and what it is telling you that you encountered.
Can you be a bit more specific?
