A couple weeks ago, I posted about the new trippy artform from Google

Now Google has opensourced the project.  All of the needed components are listed on the blogpost here:
And it's all open stuff.

Unfortunately it's still pretty far beyond the technical abilities of most of us non-programmer types...

A couple people have tried to make web-based front-ends for the technology:
But as you might guess, the ques are impossibly long...

Is it possible for one of you gurus to make a desktop version on this?  Or maybe it's not even possible because of the need to be online with Google Images...  IDK.

Thots?   Kiss

Thanks all, for the replies.
Yea, after App301 posted his bead designer, it occurred to me the MS Paint is a sensible starting point. 

Mouser, Thanks very much for the offer!  I don't think it'll work though, on Amazon there's a review that suggests it's not Vista-compatible.  Also, I'm hoping to upgrade to Windows 10 at some point. 

Miles, I will definitely check out that site. 

Thanks again, Everyone.

Hi All,
I'm wanting to teach my 3-year-old daughter to use a computer.  She is able to use the touchscreen on my Kindle Fire HD just fine.  And she has seen me use the mouse on our Vista PC.  She is a bit intimidated by it though.    I need a game or a learning app that is really really simple and has some kind of "learn to use your mouse" tutorial...  Any ideas of free or really inexpensive ones?

Man I gotta learn to do ahk programming....  I don't think that computer programmers appreciate just how confusing this stuff is to us lehhfolks.
Anyway.  I remember a few years ago, finding a script that someone had already written that does autocorrects.  Here I just now found this article about it.
I think it's been updated a few times, so google it and get the latest version.  If my memory is correct, they integrated some wikipedia list of "most common English typos" or some kind of thing.... 

Also, the a/an situation is difficult.  There are lots of exceptions. 

I also googled that.

From here:

Use "an" before unsounded "h." Because the "h" hasn't any phonetic representation and has no audible sound, the sound that follows the article is a vowel; consequently, "an" is used.

an honorable peace
an honest error
When "u" makes the same sound as the "y" in "you," or "o" makes the same sound as "w" in "won," then a is used. The word-initial "y" sound ("unicorn") is actually a glide [j] phonetically, which has consonantal properties; consequently, it is treated as a consonant, requiring "a."

a union
a united front
a unicorn
a used napkin
a U.S. ship
a one-legged man

More related stuff....

... Remember those amazing images from last week that looked like a computer having an acid trip? What if you could watch them live?
A group of PhD students from Belgium have created a Twitch livestream which lets viewers look in to the mind of a neural network as it “dreams”. ...

I'm not sure what a "live stream" is... 
I wasn't able to view the video (or whatever it is) on my Kindle FHD, but can on my laptop...  Pretty trippy.

10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Inceptionism: Trippy new artform from the Google people... on: June 23, 2015, 11:29:06 AM
I saw a post about this on reddit.   Pretty cool.
Apparently the people at Google took the Google Image search picture recognition technology and pointed it at itself in some kind of feedback loop or some kind of thing...  I don't really understand it, but the results distinctively remind me of when I tried dropping acid back in the 1980s.  (Not recommended kids).  Anyway, the gallery is here:
An extra trippy thing I noticed is that parts of the edges of some of the images "overlap" as in a repeating tilable pattern.  Here are a couple of screenshots as examples of the partial overlapping.

This is one of my faves:

You need to experiment with "Scrolling Capture."
FWIW though, I would love a feature whereby SSC could force a particular window to a certain size, then capture the whole thing (even the "off-screen" parts).  Kiss
12 Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Request: Modify Format/Case, order of rules, etc. on: June 19, 2015, 06:05:07 PM
So is the .pl file a resource for the .exe or something?
13 Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Request: Modify Format/Case, order of rules, etc. on: June 18, 2015, 02:56:12 PM
Actually I just found this...


Muah ha ha ha <mad scientist laughter>

As you might guess, I took the .preset.format file from C:\Program Files\Clipboard Help+Spell\MyConfigDir\PresetFormats and changed the extension to ".txt" in order to open and view the content.

But I'm guessing that if I try to rearrange these items, then change back to .preset.format, I'll probably corrupt the file -- yes?

 Actually, I see that the script tool does allow you to activate it "before" or "after" other formatting, so that's cool.   cheesy

Question: What script engines have folks been calling with this tool?  Mostly AutoHotkey .exe files, I would imagine.  

Thot: The above "hacked" file contents are more user-friendly than an external script, in some respects, because the syntax is already there...  It's sortof like doing VBA Macros in Word.  If I had to make the VBA module from scratch, I honestly wouldn't know where to start.  So I always "record" a macro to get the bare bones, then edit the code that Word provides....

  Actually I opened a copy of the C:\Program Files\Clipboard Help+Spell\Tools\ file, and it does appear to be a text file. 
What cryptic alien language is this though?

# check and get commandline args
($#ARGV >=1) || die "ERROR: first two arguments should be input path and output path (place each one in double quotes)\n";

# open files
open(IN,$infilepath) || die "cannot open input file";
open(OUT,">".$outfilepath) || die "cannot open output file";

# write out modified text
   # remove newline which is unpredictable
   # reverse the line
   $outline = reverse($_);
   # now write it out with predictable newline at end
   print OUT $outline . "\n";

# close files

Also, the ".pl" files don't show up in the script tool file picker dialog....
14 Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Request: Modify Format/Case, order of rules, etc. on: June 18, 2015, 02:03:22 PM
Hi Mouser,  I've been using the Modify Format/Case features of CHS quite a bit lately.   
I'm not sure if it is something you are working on lately; but here are some feature ideas for your list   cheesy

I've found that it would be nice if I could dictate which rules get applied first.  For example in one of my presets I might like to "Add Stuff" to the beginning and ending of each line before I "Find and Replace" content; but other times I might want to do it after.  I've been trying to think about what the GUI for this would look like....   
[will do an "edit" to this post later]

17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: raffle/random choice software on: June 10, 2015, 09:42:53 AM
I think this would be fairly easy to setup in a spreadsheet like Excel.

EDIT:  Okay, here's a starting point, from Google Sheets

It's a "dumb" random, with no seed.  And unfortunately it is possible to get duplicates.  Just keep refreshing if that happens.
Paste your list of entrants in one Tab, then enter the number of awards to be given in the other Tab, and copy the list. 

There are no protections, so don't delete/cut the forumulas!   tongue

Looks like "Desktop Timer" might be a candidate for you(?)
24 Software / Screenshot Captor / Please try these masks... on: March 25, 2015, 12:23:42 PM
Can someone else please try this...
I've zipped two mask/frame combos.
They are ones I made a long time ago http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=29947.0 and they did work back then.
After not even messing with the feature for 3 years, I'm wanting to make myself some "torn edge" effects.

I think I'm doing everything correctly, but I'm getting an error message.  Oddly, the mask/frame of one hand holding a round screenshot is working perfectly, but the one with two hands holding a rectangle is causing the following error message:

Access violation at address 00728C6C in module 'ScreenshotCaptor.exe'. Read of address 00000000.

The 'frame' part actually is getting applied, but the mask (handholding2.png.mask) is not, so I assume that it is the mask causing the crash....  
Any ideas?   Thanks All   smiley

EDIT:  My bad...  I posted about this same problem in 2013 and had completely forgoten....   embarassed
The secret is for the mask to be named "name.png.maskpng"

FYI for Mouser: the help file still lists the old rules.

As it turns out, XY v15 seems to have made some changes to how checkboxes are handled.  I haven't had time to experiment with it yet.  As far as quickly identifying the larger folders:  I personally would use filtering, or color coding, which XY can do, and I sure DO probably can too.
