201  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows editors - do they have to be so bad? on: April 19, 2009, 06:57:37 PM
Excuse me, but I am running the five year old version 3.94a and now you're at 3.96r? That change is in the SECOND DECIMAL PLACE of the revision number. That's supposed to be MAJOR?

Your upgrade page says

"This upgrade option is available to any Zeus user running the older 3.9x version who wishes to upgrade to the latest version."

and the cost of that would be $49.95.

But that's a-z then a-r, plus 2 decimal places -- that's at least 36 point changes ;P

There's an editor I have not heard of before coming up on BDJ in a few days - HippoEDIT (can't say I'm fond of the name, but that doesn't really matter): 


It seems interesting, and the little bit I've put it though it seems worth looking into more (which I don't really have time for at the moment). Does anyone else have any experience with this that they could post?

I've been playing with it a bit, and wow -- it's *really* powerful, really extensible; actively devolped and has an active support forum.  For 15 bucks, it'd be a shame not to add this to my text editor collection.

Braid is an absolutely stunning game -- the visuals are lovely and the music is brilliantly done.  I love how it was chosen for its ability to be played, memorably, both backwards and forwards.

All in all, I found it to be a truly memorable experience.

Nice to see you returning to the thread MH -- I'd posted the note about the links not to be critical but to be helpful. And the comment about reselling was in jest . . .

That said, it looks like rereplace.com has migrated over successfully, going to give your services a test drive.  Your resources per dollar ratio dwarfs asmallorange hosting--the last non-oversell host I tried.

When you say free site transfer, what all does that entail?  I have a bunch of domains scattered across 2 different hosts (including dreamhost, which doesn't offer the convenient transferability that cPanel offers) I might be in the market to consolidate all that if it wasn't such a hassle.

I paid 15 bucks for 2 years of hosting with UNLIMITED disk and bandwidth with dreamhost.

Damn, when did they run that promo?

Your links don't work (looks like you forgot the : in http//).

Your rates are pretty astounding -- makes it about the least appealing reseller package out there eh?
207  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Favorite Firefox Theme(s) on: April 01, 2009, 07:37:22 AM
I always liked breeze, based on our own NonTropo's theme for Opera -- don't know if it's still maintained, though. Ought to fire up the Firefox more often.

Eagle Eyes’s most exciting (and highly anticipated by developers) feature is its wide support of Mozilla-based add-ons. Though IE 8.1 duly notes that not all plugins will work perfectly, we have tested four popular Firefox plugins (Firebug, Web Developer, Tab Mix Plus, and No-Script) and they worked flawlessly (some of the developers even claim that – in terms of performance – they work much better under IE 8.1 versus Firefox 3).

If the JavaScript "performance" graph reflects seconds to render the benchmark, then at least that looks believable.
209  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Who else is sick of difficult word verifications on the web? on: March 22, 2009, 12:22:53 PM
That audio one makes no sense whatsoever. And while we're on the subject again, Megaupload has gotten pretty difficult recently cheesy

Generally, I don't mind re:captcha's --I can usually figure them out without much trouble and they are some times amusing.  But that megaupload one... brutal. I'd close the browser window.  That audio one -- wtf is that?
210  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Tech News Weekly: Edition 12-09 on: March 22, 2009, 12:18:06 PM
That is a bit disconcerting.  I'd lump it in with taking performance enhancing drugs, 'morally'.

I've never considered bug reports to be donating anything to the company -- if it gets fixed, then I benefit.  And the rest of the end users do, too.  Of course, I've never been sitting on a bug I could call a real gold winner.  I might sit on that, too Wink

Software geeks.  Always trying something -- either to find something you like better or (more likely) to affirm your convictions that you already use the best out there Wink
212  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Safari 4 on: March 22, 2009, 11:23:26 AM
I tend to bounce back and forth between Opera and Chrome alpha builds -- with stability being the governing factor. Chrome's developer tools have been hosed for weeks now, might be time to revert to a less bleeding edge version.
213  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Tech News Weekly: Edition 12-09 on: March 22, 2009, 11:18:15 AM
I was just about to post a thread on #6, glad I ran a search for pwn2own -- saved me from redundancy.

I was surprised Chrome survived while Safari did not -- I was honestly starting to wonder if there was that much difference under the hood between the two.  Guess so?

A recent contest at CanSecWest, an event that brings together some of the most skilled experts in the security community, has demonstrated that the three most popular browser are susceptible to security bugs despite the vigilance and engineering prowess of their creators. Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer were all exploited during the Pwn2Own competition that took place at the conference. Google’s Chrome browser, however, was the only one left standing—a victory that security researchers attribute to its innovative sandbox feature.

Safari 4 (beta) is now available bringing quite a few changes -- and it's supposedly the fastest thing out there (though Opera was left out of the comparison).  For windows users, it boasts a more native look (Personally, I hate the brushed metal look) and, like Chrome, has moved the tabs up to the title bar. (I'm not sure if Safari previously had the private browsing mode, but it does now--another Chrome inspiration?)  The font anti-aliasing is optional, you can now use native window font display and, apparently, there's a whole lot more.  http://www.apple.com/safari/whats-new.html

Down time is a real issue -- but you shouldn' thave to worry about data being misused as it's encrypted/decrypted on your machine. The data sent to/stored on the server is gibberish.
216  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best password manager? on: March 22, 2009, 09:35:10 AM
I haven't tried KeePass, so I can't make any comparisons.  Personally I use/love Passpack.  It's a web based/online password manager (encryption is all handled locally via JavaScript, though). There are also google gears and adobe air apps for offline/desktop access.

I've been reading some good things about LastPass lately, might be worth a look. Its form filler works well, but I really didn't care for the web interface at all.
217  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your mouse of choice? on: February 26, 2009, 02:19:08 PM
I love my Microsoft Arc mouse -- feels full size, folds down to portable size for transportation and I've only just yesterday replaced the "AAA" batteries that came with it, almost 2 months life at heavy use.

allen, did you end up going through the whole thing and do you have anything more to add regarding it?

What I did read, I enjoyed -- he's obviously quite passionate about the subject and seems to cover things pretty well. I haven't actually gone through the whole thing though--have mostly been reading Pro JavaScript Techniques (physical book) by John Resig. No opinion on that yet.

My point, Zero3k, is that you wouldn't *think* to wade through the control panel and disable *3* options until after the fact. This is why there should be explicit warnings about its behavior FIRST.

221  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / lala.com music on: December 23, 2008, 05:21:47 PM
I signed up for lala back in '96 or so, logged in once, shrugged and never looked back.  I've discovered, however, that they've reinvented their service.  Previously a CD swapping website (Pay a small fee to the website to trade CD for CD with other people), lala has become its own digital music market place.

There are a few things I really love about lala.  First of all, with their Music Mover, you can scan and upload your mp3 collection to the lala servers.  Anything you own on your computer will be available to you for streaming on their service from anywhere -- making your music collection as easy to take from computer to computer as a password.

At no point while listening to your library of music through their website will you be accosted with ads.  The website is 100% ad free, supported by what I feel to be an extremely fair price model -- I think everybody wins.

With music you don't own, you're allowed to listen to anything once -- so no making your purchase decision based on a 30 second clip.   After you've heard the song once, you revert to the clip though.  If you only want to listen to the song via their streaming service, you can purchase them for .10 a track. (Though when you sign up, the first 50 are free).

If you want drm-free mp3's, you can purchase tracks for .89 each. If you've already purchased the web album, that's figured into the price--you'll pay .79 on top of the .10 already paid.  If you're using the Music Mover, they'll automatically be downloaded to your computer. Alternatively, of course, you can download them manually.

There are some social features built in as well -- relatively minimalistic and tasteful.  You can follow people to see what they're listening to, send recommendations to your friends, and correspond via public blurbs.

Generally speaking, I am extremely satisfied (excited, even) with lala. Having finished uploading my library, I've been using it as my primary player.

Some caveats, of course--It's probably limited to US Residents, legally speaking. Licensing issues.  You can only download a purchased mp3 once -- so don't lose it.  Lastly, it's probably not a great service for people whose library is in another format as mp3 is all lala works with.

You've got nothing to lose, and 50 free web songs to gain so may as well try it out if you're even the least bit curious.  If you want to net me 10 free web songs, you can use my referrel code.  Or, if referrel codes seem tacky and annoy you, you can always just go to lala.com. Feel free to say hey to "Allen" there, so I can peak at what you're listening to.

Can't stop there. While I'm reducing your opinions of me by demonstrating songs I love, I have two more...

Both songs generally passed around in jest. Both songs I, sadly, genuinely really like.

I fail.
