5  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 04:15:19 PM
tomos - it does work the list entries, but not with the checklists (I tried that already)

OK -
I was testing on my laptop where I seldom use sChecklist - the version I have is not up-to-date:
with version 1.0.5 build 1 -- it works with the checklists on Windows 8.1
I updated to version 1.0.9 build 1 -- and it no longer works with checklists, as you report.
6  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 03:22:54 PM
Skwire,  I can't figure out how to move checklists up and down in the panel.
I thought if I clicked a checklist to select it that I could then use the regular up and down arrows to move it, but that didn't work.

 - works with the Control key (+ the arrow key/s).
(This also works for entries in a list.)

The offer to install the Search App by Ask was still there, and checked by default.
Oracle actually offers a solution for disabling those 'sponsor offers': https://www.java.com/en/d...ad/faq/disable_offers.xml

thanks Ath Thmbsup
that will make life a lot easier, especially helping family that dont know what & when to untick the box.
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: November 25, 2014, 02:41:27 PM
hmmm
what I like about bitcoin is that it's outisde the current system.
Does that equate with being rebellious? I dont think so - well not necessarily so. As 40 says, sometimes how you do something is more important, so we may have to wait a bit there.

I dont see this as a 'revolution' in it's traditional meaning -- I think those kind of revolutions never really work anyway -- they're mostly making relatively superficial changes.
What could work is grass roots change -- transformation even ;-)
And to people who think it cannot work -- in one of Antonopoulos's videos he talks about politicians already accepting bribes in bitcoin and this being the start of the end so-to-speak (do you remember which vid that was Ren?).

Re Bitcoin: I'm neither a 'believer' nor a cynic -- but I think bitcoin *is* going to change the world, how exactly, I dont know, but it's made a start already, and even if it fails as a currency, it has opened doors that cannot be closed.
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Need help with an e-book I purchased on: November 25, 2014, 01:57:37 PM
hi boomba212,
I'd say the best route would be manual scrolling:

  • begin a scrolling capture (and select the scrolling option)
  • on the next dialogue window, you get the option to "Let me manually scroll the window"
  • on the next dialogue, select horizontal content, and follow the instructions

No guarantees though ;-)
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Move files to folders named after part of filename on: November 25, 2014, 05:34:08 AM
(just for the record) something comparable was requested lately:

Hello. Would it be possible to add a feature to find common text between files and use that as an name for the folder?
eg we have  files
[Chemistry] Workbook 01.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 02.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 03.rar
So the new folder is named [Chemistry] Workbook.

This is doable.  However, in your example, technically, the common text would be "[Chemistry] Workbook 0" right?

This says pretty much everything I think and might say about Gamergate. Since somebody (Ken White) went through all the trouble of writing it up, I won't duplicate effort by doing my own version.

that was very helpful, thanks!

I've avoided the 16:9 format so far (well, apart from laptops where it's often a real pain).
Even 16:10 is a big improvement over 16:9 -- if you can find it these days.

I dont think that 1:1 would suit me personally, but it's great to see thumbs up  -
would be nice to see more variety in the market in the future.

doesnt open the newer MS Office filetypes AFAIK (well it didnt here until I upgraded to version 2012).
Otherwise very good too thumbs up
18  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Ashampoo Office 2012: $5 on: November 21, 2014, 01:05:10 PM
Thanks Curt,
I wonder if Version 2015 is coming soon undecided
Mind you I'm very happy with this one (well, I have the Softmaker version) - it opens all MS Office document formats AFAIK, and does a great job of anything I've tried.

Softmaker usually makes the odd good offer for upgrading from the Ashampoo version to their more complete version.
19  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: New EU VAT rules change the game for digital businesses on: November 20, 2014, 03:27:27 PM
not sure what exactly wraith meant, but the big question is how the EU would stop (or punish) a supplier from outside the EU selling without VAT (?)

I meant, if I as a US citizen sold a digital item, and someone in the EU purchased it and downloaded it- then how would they enforce the strictures of these rules against me as a US citizen?

that's what I thought -- but dont have the answers either. But as dr_andus says, they're largely making it work already (via the payment processors).

How is it working in the States -- are there any states successfully implementing their own sales tax for suppliers from outside that state?
20  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: New EU VAT rules change the game for digital businesses on: November 20, 2014, 02:43:29 PM
re not part of an aggregation type service for payment have decidedly *not* been doing it.

I didn't say they were. I said *most that I've bought from in recent years.* In the early years of the Internet I could happily pay in USD and get the same deal with no taxes as the US customer. But in recent times many payment services would identify me as an EU shopper and would automatically apply the VAT—I can only presume it was due to pressure to comply with the local EU country legislation.

yeah, that's been my experience as well for a good few years now.


as for
how would they even go after me?

there would be an electronic payment trail linking the seller and the buyer, so it's just a question of access to the payment data + plus the right software and processing power to figure that out that an export/import transaction had taken place across the EU's borders.

not sure what exactly wraith meant, but the big question is how the EU would stop (or punish) a supplier from outside the EU selling without VAT (?)

Very minor-trivial-unimportant stuff cheesy

1) check for updates is broken here -
nothing happens for a while, then I get:
---------------------------
tiffInfoGUI
---------------------------
Version data could not be downloaded.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

2) just a suggestion:
in the 'About' box, instead of linking to the OP in this thread, why not link to your first posting of the software?

i wouldn't mind having a GUI for the tiffinfo program. who knows, it might come in handy one day.

Here you go:  tiffInfoGUI download

Me make booboo in previous post try, forgot to read fine print about file types allowed.

So here's the link to a .pdf file of 46 pictures you've probably never seen before.

I'm confused -
there's no problem adding PDF files to posts - or is it too big?
Is there a link to a site with the photos?

Messes nicely with the apple insignia --
but that takes away from it imo, because it's a universal thing - not just apple.

Cost is $39/79. Upgrade from v.3 upwards is $29/39

FWIW -- these prices for MainType standard/pro run until 21 November -- normally they $10 more.
