202  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Blackberry apps do you use? on: April 02, 2011, 11:41:52 AM
BlackBerry 9650
Pretty much just use the standard features.  Did add these:

QuickLaunch
Partial description from site:
"QuickLaunch allows you to setup an unlimited number shortcuts to various functions such as Websites, Email, SMS and PIN addresses, Phone numbers, 3rd Party Apps, Videos, Images, Audio files, Screen Capture, Device Info, Weather, Bluetooth and WiFi Toggle, Camera and much more! In addition to these you can also launch Blackberry Options, Calculator, Calendar, Tasks and even the App Switcher. Configure a convenience key to activate QuickLaunch and when pushed a menu will pop up showing a scrollable list of your configured actions."

Documents To Go
Many have heard of & already know what it does... Partial description from site:
"Documents To Go Premium Edition is an all-in-one solution that provides users with the ability to view, edit and create Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files and attachments as well as view critical PDF files all on their BlackBerry smartphones. Also included is an easy to use desktop application offering bi-directional file synchronization and providing users with a simple way to transfer and manage important documents."

Percentages
Description from site:
"Percentages is a tool which allows you to make percent related calculations instantly and effortlessly by simply entering two values.
Whilst percentage formulas are not necessarily complicated, they can quite often take some working out. If you deal with percentages in any way then this app will make your life easier."

Another CONGRATULATIONS to everyone that worked so hard in reaching and EXCEEDING the initial goal.  Thmbsup
It is the "regular" posters old and hopefully some new ones as time goes on, that provide the knowledge, assistance, programs, snacks and general good times that continues to make DonationCoder so unique.  Which I believe helps increase the membership not only during fundraisers but on a daily basis.

Thanks for the link to the Ver 8 PDF manual.  I've looked all over your new web site for it since I upgraded.

206  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 24, 2011, 12:16:17 PM
Before I changed to a different platform these were two of my favorites:

Swiftkey Keyboard - Keyboard app that uses AI to make typing on your Android device smart, fast and personal.  It almost always knew what word I was going to type next. And there have been a few updates since then.

Edit: I also received a notice they have developed a version for Android tablets.

Gemini Calendar - Easy to use calendar application that synchronizes data with Google Calendar.  The developer is very responsive and offers the app as donationware.  Also has quite a long forum thread on Android Forums

207  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Excel - pattern matching in cells on: March 17, 2011, 09:24:58 AM
In addition to the help & great site links above the forums at Mr. Excel might be of help. http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/index.php
I looked and Mr. Excel was briefly mentioned in the forums back in 09.  The forum members are quite active like they are here and helped me out recently with something I was trying to do.

On the main page http://www.mrexcel.com/ he also has tutorial videos, a blog and other helpful information.  Some free some some not.

Not affiliated with them in any way.


208  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to choose the best Linux distro for laptops on: March 14, 2011, 09:41:57 AM
I noticed PCLinuxOS mentioned here and in a couple of other posts on the forum.  In looking for information on different live cd's I came across this PCLinuxOS site: http://www.pclinuxos.com/
There is also a link on this site to a monthly PCLinuxOS magazine: http://pclosmag.com/
The magazine is available in html or PDF versions.  The PDF versions I've downloaded so far are 40-60 pages and cover a variety of topics.  Reviews, tutorials, configurations...

Searched the forums here and didn't see either of these sites mentioned before and thought I'd pass them along.  Might be of some help.
209  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: More thoughts on micro vs macro donations and the turning point for donationware on: March 12, 2011, 08:02:21 PM
Not sure if this would enter into the picture or not. Collection of sales tax on purchases versus accepting donations.  In the event someone didn't read further and just clicked buy now.  I've read recently there are US states trying to collect sales tax on online purchases.

Passed this on to a lady I work with.  She'll love it and probably have one made by tonight.
It will be much more ergonomic than the real thing.

211  Special User Sections / The Getting Organized Experiment of 2007 / Re: My System - Index Card Centric on: March 12, 2011, 10:34:12 AM
If i did a software version, here is what i would do is this:

A very opinionated piece of software that tried to present a specific method of operation.

There would basically be two views:
  • Working View
  • Maintenance View

In the "Working View" you would see a very clean desktop which tried to reproduce the visual card metaphor.  This might be so minimialistic as to restrict view to a stack of cards and then 1-5 chosen cards laid out and displayed very large on screen -- like real size 3x5 inches.

Similar to the old Microsoft Cardfile or Azz Cardfile discussed here? http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=16548.0
212  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Clipboard Help+Spell - Top Priority Requests for 2011 on: March 11, 2011, 09:58:16 AM
I found mouser's index card system very effective but the problem is that there is no software version for it. I think it is possible to code it in simple way but with OCD mind here i have hard time doing that.

Anyone here know similar software or can point to such system ? :-)

+1 to this gentleman.  This philosophy makes him a credit to his profession and is due the respect.  It is the "other side" which I unfortunately have had dealings with that get my goat.  Anyway, didn't mean to get off topic.  Just had to put my $0.02 in.
214  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Fox Sends DMCA Takedown To Google To Remove Link To DMCA Takedown Sent By Fox on: March 11, 2011, 08:48:33 AM

Now they have to go to court and file papers and lawsuits. What a hassle.

It's called billable hours = $$$$$$$
IMO whether the reason it is legitimate or not, win or lose it's still $$$$$$$

Thank you for the additional clarification.

Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't read the explanation on the right side of their web page... till now.  embarassed
I was still using the trial activation code and hadn't thought about not seeing it in the email confirmation from them.

Sorry I took so long to get back to thank you for your words, work and suggestions
@app... I have to agree with the others that the 1st one makes him look stoned.  But that really wasn't a bad thing that day.  When we got back I showed to to my wife and that was her immediate reaction, "he looks like he's stoned" and she got a good laugh.  Grin Thanks.  In the almost 16 years we had him he would sometimes sit in a room just staring into space.  It was called his "look at the pretty colors" look.
Anyway, your 2nd one is almost on. Even using the "human eye." Many say (me included) animals are more human than people give them credit for.

@vlastimil thanks for yours.  I like "carpet eyes" but too green.  But between yours and app's it has given me the way they need to look.  In fact I found a plug-in for Paint.net called "Eyeshine Removal" I've done a little work with and I think it is going to do the trick.  Soon as I'm happy with it I'll post to the other thread with pics of the rest of the brood.

I've tried not using a flash when taking pet pics without a whole lot of success.  Either the room is too dark or it comes up blurry cause I've shook.  Even with the shake detection feature on.  But I'll keep trying.

Again, thanks to all.
219  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AllMyNotes or Notezilla - Looking for a Comparison on: March 09, 2011, 01:04:41 PM

Thanks to you both.  It is apples and oranges. What I was looking for.
@barney... all we need is two more as of this writing. I bought one.  thumbs up
@Curt... Think I will hold off on NoteZilla at least until I work with AllMyNotes a while.  It may be I decide to go the sticky route also. And I'm sure there will be another discount offered down the road.
220  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / AllMyNotes or Notezilla - Looking for a Comparison on: March 09, 2011, 09:58:21 AM

It's already been announced both programs are on special today.

AllMyNotes at http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=26018.0

Notezilla at http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=25975.0

Reviewing other posts on DonationCoder both are respected and quality programs.  And comparing features on both company web sites it looks like both have comparable features.  With the exception of sticky notes.

Does anyone have experience with both that would be willing to offer their thoughts or a short comparison?  I am not sure if the "sticky" note feature will used that much in my case.  And unfortunately I will not have time to run through both trial versions today to compare. I'm trying to determine if (except for the "sticky") it is an apples to apples, apples to oranges, or oranges to tangerines.  While today's discounts could enter into the decision wondering if it should.

Thanks

could a plug-in be added to CHS that if it sees it is an image, send it to SC?

One of the things that i could do is let users tell CHS how and where clipboard images should be stored.

So you could tell CHS, when it detects image data on the clipboard, save it to a file named C:\ScreenshotCaptor\Screenshots\Chs\DATE_TIME.extension
or C:\ScreenshotCaptor\Screenshots\YEAR\MONTH\TIME.extension
etc.

And possibly, (as an option?) allow SC to pop-up and show the image.  Then if you wanted to use any of SC's tools control is passed on to it to continue?
222  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: V2 Beta of Clipboard Help+Spell With Support for Images on: March 08, 2011, 03:12:12 PM

It would be nice but I voted #2.  I've been using CHS a lot more since yesterday.  Still getting used to it but it's been very helpful with keeping track of my text clips.
And since I realized I can drag and drop an image into SC, rename it and add a note.  Which is what I'd want to do with CHS.
Not sure if it's doable, or the right thought process but could a plug-in be added to CHS that if it sees it is an image, send it to SC?

Helped me see I should be using CHS more.

225  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Recommendation for removing eye flash on: February 24, 2011, 01:47:55 PM

Knowing there are a number of cat people here, could someone point me in the right direction of how to remove white eye in photo.  Removing red eye I have had success.  But white eye for some reason it just ends up looking like a black blotch,
Here's a reduced size of the photo. Used Renegade's Photo Resizer.

[attachthumb=1]

All I have to work with at the moment is GIMP or Paint.net. Checked their sites for tutorials and haven't located any yet.  Thought maybe someone here may know.
I've been wanting to add his picture along with our other 5 "fur kids" for some time to the "Show us a photo..." thread and haven't gotten to it.  This is the best one I have of him. Unfortunately I'm not able to take a better one because in a couple of hours sadly we will be taking him to the vet for the last time.

Thanks for any suggestions.
