General Software Discussion / Spotify
« on: August 26, 2009, 11:38 AM »
Hi guys!

So, Spotifyw looks good.
Unfortunately, I can't find much information about it here on DC (which I find odd, doesn't anyone use it?).
Also unfortunate is the fact that I apparently can't use it, as it says the free plan is not available in Portugal (where I live).

Does anyone know a solution for this?

What do you think about spotify?

Adventures of Baby Cody / Portugal

I'll be patiently waiting for Baby Cody's visit to Portugal, I'd like to show him the great views of Lisbon!

Here's an interesting article, written in 2006 by a guy who activelly worked in windows Vista.
It's interesting to see the whole process involved in making such a giant product, and how things sometimes don't come out the way they were expected.

To be honest, I actually like the feature mentioned in the article (it's Vista's shutdown button), except for the fact that it comes predifined to "sleep", which makes no sense. After changing it to "shutdown", I think it's a giant step better than XP's dialog.

JGPaiva's GridMove and Ahk Tools / GridMove simple grid maker
« on: July 14, 2008, 10:03 AM »
Ok, so I just had this idea:
For all of you who use GridMove out there, how would you like an application that allowed you to position a few windows on your screen, then press a button, and that application would create a new GridMove Grid for you to use (and share!)?
Would anyone use this? Do you think it'd be better than making the grid by editing the files?

Ok, just now, I was doing my normal morning read of DC forum, and just noticed that I saw 3 consecutive posts (by 3 different members) that all finished with ":up:" and had a very positive content.
It's just great to be able to wake up in the morning and see so much positive energy flowing through the threads of the forum!

Thank You people!

General Software Discussion / Vim 7.2 - Vista compatible!
« on: July 11, 2008, 05:53 PM »
Ok, for those interested (if you're reading this, you proably are interested, right? :P), the new version of vim is Vista-compatible.
While previous versions had problems with colors, or just blew up with a few errors on startup, I just instaled the new version (which is in beta right now), and it looks like it works perfectly.
I imported the _vimrc I used in XP, and it found no problems loading it, I must say I'm pretty happy with it :)

Ok, so as i know most people here know more about backup than i do, I'm interested in asking you 2 things:
If you change one bit in a 8GB file, how much space does the incremental backup take? does it add just a few kb, or the whole 8GB? More specifically, does the incremental backup work by whole files or byte by byte?
How about if you change the name of an 8GB file? Does it consider that as a new file, or is it smart enough to tell it's the same file with a new name?

Sorry, just another question: I know some backup programs (that do incremental backup) allow you to see the files you've backed up. How does that work? Do they come up on Windows Explorer (as a virtual drive or something) or do they use a sort of "Backup Explorer", a proprietary application that works similarly to WE but can only be used for backups?

Thanks a lot!
