Wow...I think I am in with a chance to win the award for most delayed reply on DonationCoder.com ever...and not even sure you still check the forums here, but anyhow:

I am no longer developing RegaLink as I no longer have enough free time to code Sad  I released the code to the world for people to modify and use however they want.

The code was released with no license attached...you are free to download/use/play with/modify/set on fire as much as you want smiley

I have been working on a complete rewrite of one similar it will be due out late this year (NANY 2015) if all goes as planned.

An actual current screenshot with some options disabled/enabled: (see attachment in previous post)
Rest of the info ATM is classified including the name of said program.

Edit: Mouser thought I should let everyone know and show a teaser so everyone would know a version that is similar is being worked on...




Ham, once you release the software, let me know and I will put the link up in the first post on this thread so people can see yours as well! xD

Have you tried google docs?


We also are not too interested in the Google and Microsoft environments.

One thing should be noted here:

Never lie about qualifications.

A friend of mine is a Manager at a local company, and recently we have been discussing one of his members of staff (For some reason, my opinion is of a meaningful nature to him when it comes to anything 'managerial'...not sure why but hey ho!)...After careful review of his employment documents (Which I have already been authorized to view by the owner of the company for the reasons already mentioned) I spotted that the member of staff in question has put a Masters Degree in a certain topic...now...not being relevant to the job he is doing, this got left unchecked.  I have met the person in question...and I can tell you right here and now, they with that one interaction with him...I know for a fact that he did not have said qualification...but obviously these things needed to be verified...anyhow...long story short...I was right...now they are just deciding what to do and if it will affect the persons employment or not.

I assume you mean 1280x720?

I ask this because...well...as long as it is 16:9 (1.78:1)...you can view in 720p at well...any resolution that is 16:9...Right now, I have a small youtube window open...on my phone...running at 1080p...yes it is full screen...but seeing as that screen is tiny...it is...well...tiny?

720p = 720 horizontal scan lines (Not a depiction of actual size as such)

I had a bit of a dig around the internet and couldn't come up with anything better than I already did...if you can call the one up there "better"....

There is actually a really REALLY annoyingly awkward way of doing this, which will take a lot of time, and patience....I would probably suggest removing all sharp objects from your house first...

Firstly...you need to use the "Allintitle" search term

Then you need force the word Love, you do this by the following:

Allintitle: "Love"

Unfortunately...this is where life will get bloody stupid...

You then have to remove other search terms methodically...

SO...

The first hit that came up for:  Allintitle: "Love" was a Cheryl Cole video, which we obviously don't want...so we remove that by having

Allintitle: "Love" -Cheryl

See what I did there?  I just forced it to remove that...

Now...another came up that was something containing the word "Family"...nope..we don't want that

Soooooo

Allintitle: "Love" -Cheryl -family

see the method?

Sucks...and you will probably have to remove about 4000 words before you find your video lol...Hope I helped...cheesy

But the author of the site doesn't visit the official Facebook page :-/

The live chat page will dump your friends directly into our IRC channel, where they can meet the bunch of us that hang out there, and MouserBot can do his magic, spitting forum links at them until they feel compelled to click & join.  cheesy



Well...if MouserBot ever makes a return to the IRC lol

I actually completely forgot about this until today.  Handy for keeping up on stuff from the Blog whilst you are not here!

It doesn't get updated TOO often, but it will at least give you a brief overview of what it happening on the DC forums, if you spend more time on Facebook than you do on here!!!

Anyhow, the link is below for those who wanna "Like" it or just have a look around on it smiley

Let's put this through the "Ren Test"  Grin

Here is a short section from a book I am writing, which I would love to get some opinions on smiley



Really, there is no way he could have seen this coming.  Spending every day locked away in his own little world; friends all around, but loneliness so vivid.  Darkness was his companion, the light; his enemy.  Yet, somehow, through the mist, he saw something that made no sense, something he couldn't explain.  Words cannot describe the feeling that had come over him, and all he knew, was that something was changing...something strange, something wonderful, but also absolutely terrifying.  It took only a few moments for things to become clear, and he could see through the mist, he could feel the breeze.  Something whispered out to him, and he knew then, what he must do, to survive.

(New Chapter)

Things just didn't seem quite right, what with everything that was happening.  Days seemed short, the nights long, no matter what he said, there was nothing getting through, nothing had the power to break through the wall, and that left him with a heart so powerless, his soul fading like sheets blowing into the distance.  Hidden away, lost, and with an overwhelming loneliness thrust through his soul, he had no clue how to overcome the feelings of darkness that passed through him on a minute-by-minute basis.  Nothing seemed to help.  Life was slipping past him at an incredible rate, yet the world seemed to stay without motion, words resonating without echo, quickly evaporating into a hazy mist.

People move so quickly these days, but for reasons that are unknown, his feet are stuck in the quicksand he has created, lost in his own spirit, drowning in solitude, and with painful angst, he muttered slowly with every breath he could muster, hoping for some release, something to help him climb up from the bottom of this endless cliff, but that was a path he could not see.  It is amazing to think, that for a long time, these feelings where locked, like an ocean liner trapped in a bottle or a firefly lost in the sunset.

His mind twisted like branches around an old oak tree, trying to find resolve, desperate for an end, a way through, some meaning, some light, but nothing would go right, every turn was littered with voids.  He spent his days locked behind a glaring screen, sound coming through was muffled and empty, but it gave him a reason, a way forward, and a path on which to travel where he couldn't feel.  Every word he tried to say, came out backwards, and it was breaking him.

The sun was falling from the sky, causing shadows to leap and bounce along the building tops.  This was something he could enjoy, something that still felt right, which is why he got in the car so often at the end of the day, to find a spot to sit, somewhere to find solitude, even for a moment.  Sitting there, he could think clearly, so clearly.  He felt warm, and safe, while on his own, but nobody could understand.  The pain in his heart, was breaking him.  Simply staying here, in the place he was, and the situation he was in, was going to kill him, no other way I could put that, so much easier to be blunt about it, and there lies the problem...on several occasions, it almost did.

Skeletons littering his mind,  ghosts of the past screaming into his soul, he needed an opportunity to relinquish some of the pain he was feeling, yet, there was no way out.  No matter how much they spoke, their words fell before reaching the intended destination.  He screamed out, but to no avail, his heart twisting with every word, beating faster than the wings of a Hummingbird in a calm summers breeze.  Every ounce of his being was on fire, and yet, he was, actually, happy...once.

I can never tell whether Renegade is being satirical or serious...

Renegade...you need to get a writing job for The Onion...seriously...if that is Satire, it is very well written in the sense that it looks like the author believes what they are writing...

If not...Then...I don't even know any more  huh

Quote
Racetrack Playa is home to an enduring Death Valley mystery. Littered across the surface of this dry lake, also called a “playa,” are hundreds of rocks – some weighing as much as 320 kilograms (700 pounds) – that seem to have been dragged across the ground, leaving synchronized trails that can stretch for hundreds of meters.

What powerful force could be moving them? Researchers have investigated this question since the 1940s, but no one has seen the process in action – until now.

In a paper published in the journal PLOS ONE on Aug. 27, a team led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, paleobiologist Richard Norris reports on first-hand observations of the phenomenon.

Because the stones can sit for a decade or more without moving, the researchers did not originally expect to see motion in person. Instead, they decided to monitor the rocks remotely by installing a high-resolution weather station capable of measuring gusts to one-second intervals and fitting 15 rocks with custom-built, motion-activated GPS units. (The National Park Service would not let them use native rocks, so they brought in similar rocks from an outside source.) The experiment was set up in winter 2011 with permission of the Park Service. Then – in what Ralph Lorenz of the Applied Physics Laboratory at the Johns Hopkins University, one of the paper’s authors, suspected would be  “the most boring experiment ever” – they waited for something to happen.

But in December 2013, Norris and co-author and cousin Jim Norris arrived in Death Valley to discover that the playa was covered with a pond of water seven centimeters (three inches) deep. Shortly after, the rocks began moving.

“Science sometimes has an element of luck,” Richard Norris said. “We expected to wait five or ten years without anything moving, but only two years into the project, we just happened to be there at the right time to see it happen in person.” - Continue Reading...

Thanks guys. I'm hopeful that she's able to create some kind of production company out of this and take the show on the road. Who knows. I'll let you know if that happens and you can all go see it in person. smiley
