251  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 Release: Ethervane Radio on: January 12, 2011, 08:25:18 PM

Installing on my Win 7 tonight.  Meant to ask before.  Should I 1st delete the files in the folder where I placed the earlier version or will they be overwritten after I unzip and copy or move the latest version to the folder? Should I have also deleted the files in the user app data folder before updating?  I noticed on my XP this morning that even after updating it had still remembered some favorites I had chosen during my random selections with the previous version. Ver 0.1.2b didn't attempt to create the database file like the 1st installation did.

It is working on my XP sp2.  Meaning no shutdowns using the random selection.  But the CJFH test still isn't even after the config change to False.  I have to head out but will try again this evening to make sure I did everything correctly and let you know what is happening (or not happening).  Some stations not playing isn't a problem for me, there are still plenty of good ones to listen to.  I know this is still a work in progress.

Thanks again for the great N.A.N.Y. program/entry!

No problem.  I'll get the latest.
I knew it would be fixed... just not this fast Thmbsup
Looking forward to your other additions to ER as it evolves.

Tried running it on my Win 7 x64 with "CJFH" station and it also crashed.  It didn't just go away like in XP. Win 7 popped up a screen "Ethervane Radio Has Stopped Working" but it did not have a reason why.
Even after I closed the pop-up the icon is still in the system tray. In fact I now have two icons in the tray since I tried running it twice.  I checked the program folder and do not see a log file.  Would it be different in Win 7?

This is great. Added it to my LBC to find it quick.
I'm seeing an occasional glitch with it on my machine. I'm running XP Pro sp2.
From the menu, Radio > Random Station.
Most times it selects a station and starts playing fine.  Occasionally after selecting random Ethervane just shuts down. Immediately on the screen and a few seconds later in the task bar.
Anything else I can provide to help figure out why this happens? When I restart it and go to the debug log it's empty.


256  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Feature request: Tray option to quick-change target directories on: November 19, 2010, 05:48:30 PM

How about something similar to your 'Move To' on the toolbar except 'Save To'.  Where SC brings up a list of previous used locations to quick click and also has 'Save To...' to bring up a browse folders window to create a new folder?  Either for immediate use or the future.
Having the ability to select pre-defined quick preference/profile changes would also be nice.  Could they be two different quick select choices or buttons? This could give the best of both worlds. Use either or both.

I used it to download all the online HTML help files (on-line manual) of a program I use so I could have a copy to refer to when I am off-line. It was much easier than page by page saves.  Had all 102 files in about 60 seconds. smiley

You might take a look at VueMinder Calendar.
There is a free lite and pro (60 day trial) version.

Link to the comparison page.
http://www.vueminder.com/...nd-pro-feature-comparison

The lite will let you print day, week or month calendars.
And either can sync with Google calendar if you would like.

1. standardize the basic remote control protocol (on/off, change channel, volume up/down, basic DVD controls like start pause, fat forward, etc).  Once in place and enough stuff follows it you have the joy of being able to use any remote control for the 99% of what you want.  If you need to program recordings or do picture-in-picture, then you'll have to dig up the remote for the particular unit.  But if you just want to watch something, off you go.  Oh, and when you buy a new universal remote (or need to change the batteries in the one you have), you may never have to bother with programming it.

It's not the the standardization of the remote codes, that would be too easy.
But I went to a Harmony remote the last time after one of the dogs got a hold of the sound system remote.
http://www.logitech.com/e...remotes/universal-remotes
Even the lower end ones like I got are expensive but by the time you multiply the cost of the individual remotes and hassle of setting them up and keeping track of them... not so bad.  At least that was justification I used to talk myself into it.

Is or will it be possible to have the folder names user defined?  This also looks like an easier way to organize podcasts I've downloaded for later listening.

It's a possibility it's my browser settings but when I click on your web link above I get a 404 not found.

I have been looking for a full fledged Android PIM for some time.  No real luck.  There are have been a number of posts by people on the Android Forum also looking.

DejaOffice has been trying but it seems it works well on some mfg & model phones but not so well on others.  Companionlink is needed to perform a USB sync and there was talk of them coming out with a wireless sync about the time I stopped trying to get DejaOffice to work on my phone. Here is a link to their forum if you'd like to look at it.

The Handbase database app has just recently been released for Android.  I have not used it yet but there have been ex Palm & Pocket PC users on the Android and some other forums that have been waiting patiently for it's release.  Saying this will allow them to use their Android phone more effectively.  May be someone will come up with a PIM using it.

Do you have some type of short side by side comparison of the free vs current version to see the differences and advantages a little easier?

I have just started to use it and it seems to have the 4 things you are looking for. The generous discount in the above post is over but there is a free lite version, 60 day trial for the Pro and upgrade programs.  Says it will import & export Outlook files.  Haven't tried it yet.

266  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: ultimate insult from fraudulent ebay seller tries to sell me iPhone 4 on: August 19, 2010, 10:40:59 AM
The thing in my case is I had not set or been asked to pre-set up any security questions they used.  And if I had, I would not have used, or for that matter even thought of using, a 14 year old previous address or year & make of my wife's (joint titled) car.  And I know I've never used either of these two things as a security question anywhere before.  So I'm wondering where & how they had access to the information.
I noticed there are a lot of various topics shown in their Q & A forum.  I'll have to see if I can locate anything there.
On the amount of money that was trying to be accessed, I've read before in some cases if outsiders get access to an account of some type, or many accounts of a number of people, they make relatively small purchases.  Small purchases can slip through easier.  And a bunch of small purchases can add up to more $$ than wiping out one big account.
Anyway, it's always something to be careful of.  In your case I'm hoping it was just a fluke.  I've know two people that have gone through the identity theft process and it took then a long time to clear up.
267  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: ultimate insult from fraudulent ebay seller tries to sell me iPhone 4 on: August 17, 2010, 03:10:03 PM
I signed up with PayPal over the weekend.  Finally had a reason I wanted to use it for.  For now, until I am comfortable with it I signed up using a pre-paid MoneyPak card bought locally instead of a credit card or bank account.
When I set up the account I selected to have PayPal provide me with a verification code via text message to complete the transaction.  You then have to enter the verification code within 60 seconds after you receive it or request a new one.  Seemed simple enough.
I requested one and a message popped up on the computer screen saying that there was a communications problem, try again in a while.  Did this 2 or 3 times with the same pop-up.  It also said I could circumvent the text message verification process by answering some security questions.  I went this route and it was interesting.  There were 3 security questions. As I remember, the 1st asked me some question about some site I had recently had some association with.  None fit so I said none.  But the next two questions are the ones that now make me wonder.  the 2nd question listed three different street addresses and asked if one pertained to me.  Sure enough one was the address I had before I moved here... 14 years ago.  I clicked on it.  The last question was a list of vehicle model and year.  One of which fit...my wife's car.  Clicked on it, I passed the test and the transaction went through.  Not long afterward up popped the 3 different text messages I'd requested with different verification codes.
Based on the two questions having accurate info on me, I'm guessing PayPal has credit report access. Even though I haven't as yet provided them with a bank account, credit card, ssn or any other account info of this type.
Possibly whoever tried to make the purchase on nudone's account, did some type of security question workaround and got lucky with their answers??
I'm not crazy about the questions they asked me and used for a security verification.  The way some credit reports and other types of info can get out or found on the internet these days these are questions & answers that could probably easily be found with the types of crooks that do this type of thing for a living.
Anyone else tried the security questions workaround?

Thanks for taking the time to do these screencasts.  I've only been able to watch #2 so far but it already explained a couple of things I've been wanting to do.  I'll be watching the rest tonight.

In Office 2003 & 2007 you can also replace the quick print button in the toolbar with the print dialog button.  It is under the View>Toolbars>Customize section.  This allows me to select if I want to send it to one of two printers or a PDF creator.
Saves a few keystrokes or mouse clicks.

mouser,

Can I add a vote for a selectable hide & unhide time in a future version?
The instances this would be helpful to me at least is when I am running a program in full sceen and using the touchpad on my laptop.  When I move the pointer to close the program in full screen I get too close to the side and up pops the launchbar.  The 250ms helps but not always.  Is it possible or reasonable to have separate delays for hide & unhide for those that need it?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this would fit NANY 2011 but I'll throw it out for review.

As a recent forced convert to an Android smartphone(?) there is a need for a program/app that will easily allow someone to access their Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks, journal, etc.  There are postings on a number of Android related forums looking for the same thing.  At least in my case this wouldn't necessarily and would prefer it not happening "in the cloud."  Via a USB cable is fine.  There is a Google sync app but it only does basic contact & calendar sync.  There is a 3rd party program but it will only work if you are on an exchange server. 

That is the basics.  I can point anyone to some of the forums or provide suggestions if it would help.

Thanks

http://www.8bitrocket.com...isplay.aspx?newspage=6120

Also try a google search for 'retro games' sites.  The other day I was looking to see if there were any PC pinball type games still around and didn't realize how many retro gaming sites and forums there are for the older games.  I do remember seeing references to jigsaw puzzles on some of them.  Hope this helps.

mouser,

I like this idea but how large is the box.  Didn't see anything on the site.  I did see a recommendation of 1 per cat +1.  With 3 cats it may not be as economical for us???  Also having visions of the newest addition playing hockey through the house with the pellets.  The user comments on the other retailers site links were also very favorable.
