I'm running FF 3.6.13 and having no problems bringing up links posted on the site.  In regards to your other thread and you not being able to post with an attachment using FF.  I have not encountered this problem either.  Hopefully someone will have some suggestions to assist you with this.

Are there any numbers of disgruntled posters of the current system vs the ones it doesn't seem to be a problem? Prompting the consideration to change?  Or is it a "gut feeling" like they say on NCIS?

I feel that anyone who visits the site frequently enough should realize the benefits of donating whether as a coder or just as a user. Granted, some do need gentle reminders before it comes to them on their own.  The purpose of DonationCoder is well presented elsewhere on the site http://www.donationcoder....m/Articles/One/index.html

Need some help on this one since it has been a while since I installed Screen Captor and Launchbar Commander.  So bear with me if this is off a little. 

At the end of the installation there is a pop-up inviting the user to visit DonationCoder.  What about expanding (in fact physically expanding the window size so a bunch of scrolling isn't needed) in this window a short description of DoCo or a link to the expanded version above.  Then include wording to the effect of "you are able to use 'abc' for a period of ?? days.  If you haven't already, at the end of ?? days you will receive a gentle request (reminder) to join and post your comments on your use and experiences of 'abc'.  (Maybe set up a separate forum area for these) And at that time this will automatically extend the usage for ?? days/months"... and so on."  Not even use the word free in the statement, just the word "use."  Personal opinion, saying something is "free" then turning right around and asking for something in return can be a turn off.

Or (since I just looked), similar to how it is said it the 'About' section of the help menu in SC, LC, etc.

My 2 cents for what they're worth.  I'll continue to donate however it goes and as long as possible.

Helps me if I tilt the screen to look perpendicular at it and remove my glasses.  I have the progressive bi-focals and just a slight up or down movement can change the focus.

That took care of it  Thmbsup No more "boops"
Ver 2.90.01 that is.
255  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Windows standard beep ("ding") when changing between screenshots on: February 11, 2011, 12:10:57 PM
Just copy/save it over the existing copy?
256  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Windows standard beep ("ding") when changing between screenshots on: February 11, 2011, 12:08:02 PM

It was already un-checked.  So I enabled it and took a shot.  This time I heard the shutter click and "boop" in the background. Turned off Post Capture Sound again, took a shot and got just the "boop." Everything else seems to be working fine.  It's not a problem for me but wanted to let you know I was hearing something in XP also.
257  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Windows standard beep ("ding") when changing between screenshots on: February 11, 2011, 11:44:01 AM

Furthermore it seems to affect Vista only (or primarily), and all the sufferers on this thread are using Vista.  So this is definitely the problem.


I am running XP Pro SP2 and hear a 'boop' whenever I press Prnt Scrn to capture the active window.  You say beep I say boop.  Is this the same thing being discussed here.  I've looked through options to turn it off but never seemed to find anything and also figured it was just a sound to confirm the capture.

I had a similar thing happen a while back with an audio device.  Reloaded software, drivers, reboots and still nothing.
What finally did work was a suggestion I found on a forum somewhere.  Can't remember which it was.
The person said to go into Device Manager and delete the USB port the device was operating through. Sometimes they get bumfuzzled.
After I did that and plugged the device back in it was re-recognized and worked fine.

Not sure if the same thing can apply with the printer but might work.
thanks for the tip -
checking the usb ports properly would be a logical step ... although I know they can work for one device and not for another (there was a thread about that here lately**). I'll try Stoic's suggestions first anyways before messing with ports


** http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=25359.0

I wasn't sure if it would be applicable in this case or not.  Thanks for pointing out the thread.  Some reason I hadn't looked at it before.  I got tired of trying to keep an HP printer working as it should.  Up until the last two I had dealings with they were great.  With the last two, even with help from others on HP's forum, it was one thing or another.  A couple of the suggestions to myself & others were buy a newer generation printer with more current drivers.  HP was not updating drivers on these.  Even though one was only a little over a year old.  That is what I finally did.  I found an inexpensive Canon MFP a few months ago and yet to have the 1st problem.

Good luck with figuring it out.

Is there a maximum number of characters limit per field?

No, but only the first 260 characters are displayed in the listview though the entire field is saved.  There is no limit to the number of rows but, keep in mind, that saving and loading times will increase with larger listviews.  I have a test database of zip codes that is three columns and around 43,000 rows.  It takes around fourteen seconds to fully load on my computer.  Furthermore, there is a maximum of 200 columns allowed.  Does this answer your question?


Sure does.  I was doing some reading on some different sites regarding use of CSV files.  I came across a couple where people were having different problems based on the number of characters they were trying to work with.  All cases were where they were importing CSV files.  Some were working with 255 character text field lengths and others memo type field lengths which were much longer.  It was explained that some programs, while they will accept CSV imports, will limit the number of characters they will accept.  Usually the 1st 255 but some programs even smaller lengths.  Even though the imported CSV field could contain many more characters.

I doubt that I will ever have a field with even 255 characters, but if somehow I did, wondered what would happen.

I appended two columns, renamed each and drug them to the left between two existing columns.  When I exported to a csv and brought them up in Excel, the appended columns were still on the right side.  Not where I moved them to.

Should be fixed in the most recent build.  Please test and let me know.  Thanks.

It works fine now. Forgot to let you know.

skwire,

I went through the earlier posts and didn't see where it was mentioned.

She's actually very smart -- doing her PhD now -- she just doesn't want to bother with software -- she wants to solve problems -- which is something techies tend to forget -- people have pain, and software doesn't solve that pain -- solutions solve pain -- software can implement the solution though. She's not alone. There are a lot of people that just want to "get things done" without any complexity to create additional barriers.

SnapDB is great!  It's now much easier for me using it to get some lists into csv format than I was doing before.

Something I've noticed though...

I took the easy (lazy?) way out and now only allow the appending of a new column to the end.  Once appended, the user can drag the new column wherever they want.

I appended two columns, renamed each and drug them to the left between two existing columns.  When I exported to a csv and brought them up in Excel, the appended columns were still on the right side.  Not where I moved them to.

Thanks. My thoughts were it had to be something to do with the station since it hadn't happened before on others.  Didn't think about the station wanting to come in using a different port.

"Playing" with ER.  Using the Find Station I put in a couple of station call letters I knew.  They weren't in the database yet.  Went back to your 1st post and read about the search feature so I tried the city name.  Up pops the stations in the DB for the city. COOL!

Clicked on one of them, sorry don't remember which one, and I got this pop-up:

[attachthumb=1]

It's the 1st time it has happened and I've brought up a number of random stations and now some in different city or country searches.
This is on my Win 7 x64 with Windows Security Essentials AV.

If it helps I can go back through the history and see if it happens again.

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!
269  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 Release: Ethervane Radio on: January 11, 2011, 10:23:40 PM

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?


271  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 Release: Ethervane Radio on: January 11, 2011, 09:48:56 AM

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.


272  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.
