In my experience only way that comes close to effectiveness is rotating questions that need answering for the registration to be successful.

What do you expect from a culture that requires signatures to pay but a copy of the signature is on the back (credit cards)? Then they put in a chip and require four digits...

Recently tried join.me for the first time. Extremely slow. Teamviewer by default sacrifices graphics (remote pc wallpaper, etc.) quality to get around that. LogMeIn which doesn't do that by default is still faster in my experience. May have been an isolated case but I won't be using join.me for now.

I would suggest considering BuddyPress, that would be my first consideration but of course it depends on your requirements, expectations and the Drupal familiarity which in my opinion makes some averse to WordPress based stuff  Wink

^ All have the same thinking in common, doesn't matter if the features or code base are much the same. Do stuff in the browser, Google more than others is vested in this idea.

Google wave was collaboration, the hype and therefore the expectation was more a problem than the product itself. They got the interface wrong too, one column (usually a third of the screen) for talking while the 2/3 were holding lists (subscribed, recent waves, contacts, etc) of sorts. Clumsy look and poor responsiveness killed Wave

In my opinion in the age of online apps pricing for offline apps is even more difficult. There are niche, one (or few) feature apps (extensions, programs, etc.) that go for much less than $39. My limited experience suggests that you make a standard version for as feature rich and cheap as possible, under $30 perhaps. Then go for it for the pro version, $80 or more.

Yep very true, simple text files. In that sense you could maybe play with todo.txt too.

As far as the visibility goes how about Stickies?

Thanks Curt, I should promote it more smiley
842  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: any photo editor that will both combine/tile, and keep transparency? on: November 15, 2011, 02:25:03 PM
That's  thumbs up and pretty unique as far as I have seen.

(Shamelessx2 plug: Will be having another Picture Collage Maker giveaway this week if anyone is interested)

FWIW
The free ones are or were questionable when I last used them.

Avira: Prompts (pop up, pop under) to buy pay version
Avast: It needs (or needed?) yearly renewal via email and it prompted you months in advance. Effectively a sales pitch like Avira.
AVG: Reasonably sales pitch free but I wouldn't exactly call it lightweight.

Thanks  thumbs up Might be time to buy it.
845  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: any photo editor that will both combine/tile, and keep transparency? on: November 13, 2011, 01:53:53 PM
Both have background options (gradient, color, etc) but I don't recall if they have transparency (I have reviewed those two relatively recently)
846  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: any photo editor that will both combine/tile, and keep transparency? on: November 13, 2011, 01:37:25 PM
Collage software may do that. Have a look to confirm that they do:

CollageIt http://www.collageitfree.com/
Picture Collage Maker http://www.picturecollagesoftware.com/

I had a Canon that after I ran and played sports with it in my pocket became similar to this permanently.

I have seen similar to your screenshots (but not the JPEG errors) when the camera's CCD went bad when the camera was moved or jerked too much.

When actually taking the photo or after a serious jerk (bump)?

Generally I'm pretty steady when taking a photo (after long experimentation of long exposures without a tripod)...

In my experience serious jerk

That's 90% of reason all use third party providers like paypal or gateways (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payment_gateway) which 'send' info when needed. Storing credit card numbers on your own servers is asking for trouble.

And Paypal stores credit card numbers...?

Their defenses go beyond encryption on a web facing server and a SSL certificate, this is a case of going with better security infrastructure.
