I'm in Thmbsup

First pointer is an article right on top of the vim web site about installing gvim on Windows.
2  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / Warhammer Quest for iOS currently free on: April 12, 2014, 03:35:41 AM
Warhammer Quest for iOS is currently free. It's an enjoyable round-based Hack'n'Slay game in the fantasy/dungeons genre, with a simple (and, unfortunately, not very well documented) rule set.

It's usually 5$ with the possibility to buy additional characters and levels as IAP.

Hi phitsc,

I believe you have the ability to remove it yourself. If not, you could at least update your post to link to the thread it was already posted in. (c:

Ok, I've added the link in a transparent font now. Thanks for the heads up. Still thinking about how to make it look like a kitten though.

Before reading this very informative thread today, I hadn't known that in the U.S. (= by U.S. law), if I understand well, it's perfectly legal to do what both cnet and Softonic do, vàv the respective developers? (That it's legal vàv the dumb customer, is another story, and better understable since on that side, the buggering is on purpose, given the respective small print accepted.)

...

That's actually a good point peter. I hadn't though about that.

i'm wondering if, rather than a legal solution, i couldn't add code to the installer to make it hard to bundle in this way -- make the installer detect if one of these adware wrappers have launched it, and instead of installing, throw up a big warning and refuse to install.

For the respective user that would be too late though as once your installer runs, all the crap has already been installed.

Edit: Well, I guess you assume that if you do this your SW wouldn't be wrapped like this in the first place.

I guess the day when 100% of games are free with ads will be the day I stop playing games. I always cringe when I start reading about a cool new game and see that it'll be 'free to play'.

That just reminded me of the last time I had to clean up a friends PC after she downloaded some piece of SW from such a site. What I expected to take half an hour turned out to be like 4 hours. I was close to telling her to just re-install Windows.
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard on: April 01, 2014, 01:52:25 AM
I've been using a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 since it's been available (i.e. many years). And while I like it I'd very much like to try a Truly Ergonomic Keyboard. One could argue that 250$ is not much for what is basically your primary tool but nevertheless, I can't get it over with to just order one.

Besides the mechanical keys it's the reduced width I'd prefer to bring the mouse closer to the keyboard (I never use the keypad).
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard on: April 01, 2014, 01:43:30 AM
Interesting that they got rid of the Pause/Break key it is used in combination with Ctrl to cancel a running build in Visual Studio. So I must assume that none of Microsoft's own developers is using such a keyboard (or is ever cancelling a running build without using the mouse Wink ).
12  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Hacking should be about making things on: March 22, 2014, 03:29:00 PM
Drew Crawford just posted a rant about how hard (impossible?) it is to land patches in many an open source project. It's an enlightening read which will actually make you think twice if you should finally start getting into OSS by starting to create patches for your next favorite piece of open source software.

Another of Drew's posts well worth reading is: Why mobile web apps are slow

He he - though I like your candidate choices, they don't seem to share the nice property of the existing names, each of which can be reversed to get the other...
yep, that's what I meant with 'interesting'. I kept the same letters though...
14  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Very Cool A* (Astar) Project on: March 21, 2014, 05:52:26 AM
Interesting tidbit at the bottom of the codeproject page:

Passion for most programming languages and my kids Aidan&Nadia.

Nice names...

I guess you mean that as: interesting choice of names. What are they going to name a possible third and fourth child? (Dania and Aandi maybe)

This is actually expected behavior. In the case you describe, as soon as you press "copy output to input", the current output becomes the new input, which itself gets the "F" prepended, hence the double-F prefix.
18  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Niklaus Wirth Birthday Symposium on: March 05, 2014, 03:29:10 PM
Niklaus Wirth turned 80 this last February. ETH Zürich organised a Niklaus Wirth Birthday Symposium to celebrate this. All the talks are available online if anyone's interested. I have to admit that I only skimmed over some of them so I can't say much about how interesting they really are. I watched Wirth's own talk though where he talks about his past career mainly, which really is a look back into the history of personal computing (well, a tiny part of it anyway).
