676  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: drag window to edge automatically resizes it on: September 10, 2006, 11:53:11 AM
This application is excellent.  After spending some time making a custom grid, I couldn't be happier.  Snap point for my webbrowser, snap points for my text editor (primary centered and points to tile it vertically or horizontally) -- no more manual window resizing.

I've attached the grid if you want to check it out.  It's made specifically for me, but it might be handy for others, quite a few variations of the middle window (text editor, file explore, etc.) for tiling/resizing.

This feature looks awesome (still downloading, no playing yet).  My screenshot directory is horribly cluttered.  I often snap 3 or 4 times when capturing something -- adjusting this or that and am terrible about cleaning up afterwards.  This should be killer.
678  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Text editor with good spell checker on: September 10, 2006, 08:02:45 AM
Inline (and on demand as well) spell checking -- syntax aware spell checking, if you do a lot of coding (spell checks text blocks, ignoring code bits) and a really flexible/configurable editor.

It has a lot of features.  Another feature I feel is worth mentioning is its find/replace interface -- it's a resizable pane with multiple lines for find/replace text for better readability on bigger, more complex querries.  The find/replace dialog even has syntax highlighting for regular expressions.

It's sad. The application has been making me giddy for the better part of a decade.  Still under active development, the latest version is a real zinger -- while other editors seem to each have great features that differentiate them from the competition, EditPadPro seems to have them all.

Mouser--did I mention that the new version fully supports standard I/O calls to external applications/scripts? Seems that was a feature that was missing previously that you needed.
679  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How Digg Gets Everything Backwards.. And How to Fix It on: September 09, 2006, 06:45:06 AM
I think a key difference between dig and stumbleupon is the fact that with stumbleupon, there is no front page to try to get your links to. There's no point where there is a select, limited amount of space to try to ascend to.  While there is a ranking system based on your "popularity", there is no quota to fill, one need only be an active member with a great deal of links floating around to reach full status on that.

Links you add and approve/disapprove impact you and others with taste similar to you -- and nothing else.  Stumbleupon is a different service altogether.  While dig is about taking a consensus and presenting what everyone must/will like based on that consensus, Stumbleupon takes the whims of the users and uses it to attempt to serve, based on the individuals preferences, what it feels they would like.  One is a chef who believes no one will dislike his cooking and you will eat what is put before you. The other is a personal chef who, after a while, anticipates what you'll want next.

Still have room for me to jump in and try to get my green badge? I've already got a napkin that says "Make coffee, change diaper" smiley

ma.gnolia.com is pretty, nice elegant aesthetic but is new and seems rather limited in features.  Its emphasis appears to be on social bookmarks/sharing.

Some time later now, I feel obligated to re-comment on ma.gnolia, which has become my primary bookmark repository.  It has very quickly (and enthusiastically) become very convenient/usable.  Bookmark and tag management is great and the social aspects are implemented really smartly. Plus, it looks great. smiley
682  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Webmail: Free, Simple Domain Name Spelling, and Nested Folders? on: September 08, 2006, 07:49:18 PM
the flat folder heirarchy was my biggest gripe with gmail for the longest time, as I've traditionally been a very tedius mail organizer.  All these years and tens of thousands (or maybe hundreds of thousands) of messages later I only use organization (in any form) very losely and only for fairly specific frequently-accessed things.  Everything else I find is much faster to access via search than a tight folder organization could provide.

That said, I can't really help you here. I'm pretty out of the loop where current webmail clients are concerned, have been locked into gmail.

Welcome back allen.  Cody was actually threatening to go on strike if you didn't come back soon.

I'd meant to take him with me, I need his wisdom if ever I hope to conquer the world.  So, had to come back to his place smiley
684  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Hi on: September 08, 2006, 06:39:57 PM
After a few pings from mouser, occasional peaks in at the forum, and never missing a newsletter -- I'm back.  Officially, I never left . . . I just got distracted.  My free time decreased by a good bit (not something GTD could help with, more a matter of my wife working longer hours and son demanding more attention.  My remaining free time has largely been divided between web projects I'm obligated to and a video game.  Shameful!

I'll try not to disappear for a while.  In the mean time, could someone give me a way to turn off the rich editor buttons when making message? tongue
685  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Cody's coins - made from what? on: September 08, 2006, 06:18:14 PM
The only difference between chocolate and any given metal (melting point aside) is the fact that of these only one is delicious.  That taken into account, it's obvious which pressed coin would hold the most value -- and I'd be willing to go out on a limb and assume he carries with him only the most valuable form of currency.
686  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Problems with Opera on: September 08, 2006, 04:53:22 PM
Tried it on Opera 9.02 (development build) -- while I didn't have any problems with opera or SSC seizing up, the screenshot I got was what I saw when I clicked -- no scrolling took place.

hey, allen is back. but for how long?

I never left, I was just . . . not entirely present tongue
688  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What to you think of RealPlayer? on: September 08, 2006, 12:16:48 PM
I used to hate Real, but it really seems to have cleaned up its act quite a bit over the last few years.  While it's too big/heavy to be considered my ideal media solution/player, I find it far more desirable than windows media player, itunes or jukebox.

I'm especially fond of Real's "Rhapsody" player/music service -- that's something they did absolutely right.
689  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What's your significant other's favorite key on the keyboard? on: June 16, 2006, 05:55:09 AM
Allen sits in the amber glow of a Deck keyboard, enjoying its rugged durability and compact design . . . little does he know its unconventional key placement will be the cause of confusion and, perhaps, the thing to rekindle his marriage.

Allen: What's your favorite key on the keyboard?

Heidi: Huh? Oh, you should know that.  I like the little squiggly one that's usually . . . right here.  But you don't have it?

Allen points to a space next to the space bar

Heidi: Yeah, that. I like it because it's kinda cute.

Allen nods, "Yeah, me too."

Heidi: We're in love again!

Allen: No, you stole my favorite key.

I find this a bit saddening, I've been a long time fan of SanDisk's thumb drives and portable mp3 players . . . with gimmicks like that, though, my next usb drive is likely to have a different watermark.

. . . I always thought nudone was pretending (or not pretending, I wouldn't know) to be nude at his computer.  Nude one . . .  I'm not sure what the bigger shocker was, the pronunciation of the name or the fact that he sounded like he was sitting in a posh arm chair with a glass of wine and a fat story book . . .
692  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Giving gamers two windows to the Web: Opera for NDS on: June 15, 2006, 07:17:55 AM
Opera is by far my favorite browser -- and I've long loved the DS system.  The two together will only make me a more avid couch potato.  The DS doesn't burn my legs, unlike this laptop.

I'm really glad it's Opera doing it -- they do some amazing miniaturization of web pages.  Most handheld browsers butcher things, but in my experience Opera makes the shrinking as elegant as is humanly possible.

Flat files, my favorite smiley Depending on just how mini it is, I may be able to help. I've been a bit busy the last few weeks but things are, hopefully, slowing down!
694  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: EditPad Pro 6 on: May 27, 2006, 10:33:54 AM
I've never put much thought into the price, as for me the value has always outweighed it -- I would have appreciated an additional beta discount though tongue
695  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / EditPad Pro 6 on: May 27, 2006, 07:26:57 AM
I've been beta testing EditPad Pro version 6 for a number of months now and have been very enthusiastic about the release -- many of the features lacking in this already stellar editor have been implemented.  The biggest additions, or at least the ones I've most commonly heard listed as shortcomings by other users, is full macro support and an extensive upgrade to its external tools support including full support of standard I/O.

There is a free trial version available -- price goes up in July, so buy it now if you love it smiley

Below is the list of major additions, scraped from the version history page.

  • New file panel (View menu) showing a tree of files inside projects. This makes it much easier to manage large numbers of files.
  • New explorer panel (View menu) making it easy to open files without going through File|Open.
  • FTP support (View menu). Open files from FTP, save files to FTP and upload/download files from/to disk.
  • File history (View menu). Easily manage and compare backup files. New backup options in Options, Preferences, Files.
  • File navigator (View menu) showing an outline of the file's structure, based on fully editable .jgfns files. The .jgfns file can also generate automatic text folding points.
  • Keystroke macros: Record and play back sequences of keystrokes and/or menu items to automate repetitive editing tasks.
  • Redesigned search-and-replace panel, with all commands and options now available through the new Search menu.
  • Improved rectangular block editing or column editing, with many new commands in the Block menu. Rectangular selections are now truly rectangular. They no longer need to start and end at a character, but can extend beyond the end of the line.
  • Redesigned Project functionality. EditPad Pro can now keep multiple projects open. Once saved into an .epp file, changes to a project are saved automatically.
  • Extra|Compare Files: New output options that can be used in addition to or instead of creating a new tab with the merged contents. Highlight changes in the original files, create a new file with only removed lines, with only added lines, with only removed lines, with both added and removed lines, or with only lines that both files have in common.
  • Fold menu: A block of text can now be folded, keeping only the first line visible. File navigation schemes can define automatic folding points. Commands to copy only the visible lines in the selection to the clipboard, and to delete all the lines in the selection that were made invisible by the code folding.
  • Improved syntax coloring. All JGsoft-supplied schemes are now fully editable .jgcscs files. Syntax coloring is now applied in the background. If your scheme is too complex or the file too large, syntax coloring will temporarily disappear rather than temporarily locking up EditPad Pro.
  • External tools can now be configured through Tools|Configure Tools instead of Options|Preferences. A great number of new options, including a new message panel with syntax coloring, are now available.
  • Install on Removable Drive command, so you can carry EditPad with you wherever you go.

Ha. That's match highlighting, not syntax -- the author is allegedly anti-ajax, and therefor unwilling to dynamically color the syntax as you type it.  I doubt he'd be clever enough to implement it anyway.
697  Other Software / Programming School / Re: New code syntax highlighting and tab entering with line numbers on: May 18, 2006, 03:42:49 PM
Tabs are x spaces would be nice . . . convert tabs to spaces would also be nice, while we're trying to recreate my text editor smiley -- This is beautiful, I'm going to have to post some code just for the sake of using it.

Formatted for PHP with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. if  ( !in_array("regex",$syntaxSchemes) ) {
  2.  echo "It's beautiful, but where's the regex love?";
  3.  # OK, so it's not a language unto itself
  4.  # Using EditPad has taught me that regex
  5.  # sans syntax highlighting is lame.
  6.  # I'm spoiled.
  7. }
698  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: email client. Opera's M2 vs. the Bat on: May 15, 2006, 04:34:22 PM
Yes, but EditPad Pro should have won the text editor shootout, too tongue

I'd probably still be using TB, but it's the ins and outs that really make it valuable -- I'd put years into it, lost it with a hard drive and just don't have the drive/need to try to get back to where I was -- and with M2's search being so effective these days, it's growing on me.
699  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: email client. Opera's M2 vs. the Bat on: May 13, 2006, 08:52:49 PM
Opera is definitely powerful/configurable -- The Bat!'s new keyboard shortcut configuration system seems to be stepping backwards in intuitive application while Opera's would be difficult to further streamline than it is.

My biggest complaints with M2, is it has a tendency to drag down Opera when downloading a bunch of messages to an already large mailbase and the lack of ability to create aliases/additional senders without resorting to adding additional mail accounts.

What amazes me most is the speed of MW's search, though -- blink and I'll miss it, with 50k+ messages.

My experience was similar to nontroppo's -- I used TB from basically the beginning; 97 or 98 beta testing all along but have strayed from it in recent years.  Great application, but to really take advantage of it you sort of need to be willing to marry it smiley

The copy path to clipboard is a great addition -- thanks!

Hey, that text scraping feature -- would it be possible to implement a pure scrape mode, so I could scrape that information without capturing the image to my hard drive?

-- Btw, a few people on the Eets forum are using this App, now smiley
