Mine too! I've done three versions of my handwriting as a font... but I need to standardize the placement of the letters in the squares as I keep varying it too much and the result is not natural. Need some pointers from Nosh and Deozaan, I guess   smiley

Do what Erwin said:

Why don't you activate the (well hidden) colored guidelines? You can do this through the Template page on the Options dialog.

In the options you can print faint guidelines that don't show up when you scan them. It really helped me. You can really see the difference between my first font where letters were all over the place and my second font where most things were pretty well aligned.

It feels a bit like practicing your writing in 1st grade again. Lines of where to put the base of the character, plus the higher line for tall letters and the lower line for letters with "monkey tails."

There are a lot of download sites that will host files for you. Alternatively, I know that mouser has often offered DC members with some hosting. I can also offer some hosting, too.

My brother and I have successfully used XFire built in voice over the past week. But we haven't tested it with multiple people at once. He says he notices some lag when we're doing voice, but I haven't noticed anything. We haven't been playing games that require everything to be completely lag free, though. (No FPS games, just MMO type)

thanks for the helpful suggestions everyone. i've set a gmail account up for them. they are likely to actually forget what email provider they are using after they've been abroad so picking an obvious one like google will help them remember - i hope.

this couple would win the award for most clueless pc users ever - bearing in mind they have had a computer since the windows 95 days.

i've made a new post about them here.

Be sure to set up an e-mail client on their PC and set up POP download so they can just open it and go. Have it remember their password and stuff. They'll never need to remember who their provider is except to give out their e-mail address to people.

There's really nothing wrong with letting it install to drive C: (unless you don't have a drive C)

If you just don't like programs being where they don't belong, another thing you can try is moving the directory it installs itself to to the H: drive and updating your shortcuts. If the software doesn't rely on the registry for knowing where it's installed, that might work. Just remember that this would break the uninstaller and you'd have to remember to manually delete the files when/if you decide you no longer want the software.

Headset and microphone are one in the same, just different chassis. I wear a headset so thats what came to mind first.

I disagree. A headset contains a microphone (otherwise the headset would be called headphones or earphones) but a microphone does not usually come with attached speakers. It can be purchased individually, and aside from a headset, isn't normally worn on the head. My webcam has a microphone. Many people have (or use to have) a microphone that stands on their desk. Microphones are used for all sorts of purposes, most of which have very little to do with headphones.

I'd recommend Gmail with POP access.

Or DonationCoder accounts. :-D

I'm working on a low-profile adaptation of the Wovel for
gravel removal.  I'll market it as the Grovel.

Oooh! Can I beta test it? PLEASE PLEASE? You know you're my best friend, right? You're the greatest person EVAR! Ya!

So whuddya say? Can I please?????!!

That means on average an iPod with video should be priced at around $5 to $6 ! (About the right price IMHO)

Agreed! Except my opinion about iPods is not so humble.  cheesy

Xfire has voice chat built in. It's really simple. My brother and I were just doing it last night. And you don't need a headset. It's just useful.

Regular speakers and a microphone will work. But people will probably hate you because your microphone is likely to catch what's coming out of your speakers and you'll echo.

especially as people have realised that watching a Hollywood blockbuster on a 2" screen doesn't really provide the Hollywood glow of a 60" plasma screen!

But just think, you can watch that blockbuster on that 2" screen for only 1/10th the cost of a 60" plasma screen! What a deal!  Roll Eyes

Why are cody's feet bloody?  ohmy

Because he got frost bite Woveling all that snow and his toes fell off.

Deozaan: ugh, original pressed copy of descent3 giving CRC errors? That's not supposed to happen, unless you've had them in very hot and/or humid weather, or lying directly in the sun!  tellme tellme tellme ohmy

Actually they're disc images on a DVD. I went through my collection and ripped all my old CDs and put the images on a few DVDs. I figured it was better to have the Descent Collection on one disc than on 5.

I know it used to work because I installed off of the image before. Sad The really bad thing is that within the past few months I actually deleted the DVD image off my computer because I figured I had it burned to DVD so I didn't need it.

Deozaan: looks nice, except your '&' character is *bad' for coding! smiley

Yeah, but so is handwriting.

Deozaan: man, i love your handriting, that really turned out great! smiley
Mine would look way worse, since i write like a 1st grade student, and some of the letters are different depending on the next letter.

PS: if it's ok with you, i would really like to give your font a try smiley

Thanks! I still need to refine it before I'm really happy with it. I need a not quite so thick marker for those smaller and more intricate characters.  Anyway, here's the font I used in the past couple of screenshots.
5218  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Best Games You've Never Played on: February 29, 2008, 05:17:59 PM
I dug out my Descent 3 CDs and I'm getting a Cyclic Redundancy error at the very end of the install process. Sad

I'm glad you included the pictures illustrating the man throwing the snow. The pictures of the Wovel alone gave me the impression that it was fairly small. But when I see that the wheel is nearly as big as the man, it certainly helps give an idea of how big it really is.

Heh, heh - I tried with a Sharpie and Scanahand couldn't generate a font from it  ohmy I'll have to find a thinner felt tip and try again.

Deozaan - I wish my handwriting were as neat as yours is!

I used a Sharpie when I did my second one... But it was a little too thick for my tastes. Oh, and also, I noticed that for some reason the font preview was at font size 18. It looks much better at size 12.

[attachthumb=#]

Just don't use a pen. That's what I did the first time and it was too thin. I'd go for one of those finer point Sharpies because "fine point" for Sharpie really means "not quite as smurfing huge as normal."
5222  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Kodak (Complaint) on: February 29, 2008, 01:37:19 PM
Okay, well I fired off a scathing e-mail to test the waters and see what they would try to do to make it up to me. I basically just replied to everything they said in their last e-mail to me (the one I received after sending the e-mail I posted in the original post).

It was really nice because I was able to vent a lot of frustration, so if they screw up again, I'll probably just drop it.

If you're curious to read it, it will be embedded in the spoiler below. Oh, and I write my e-mails in plain text, so most of the time when I use CAPS it's meant as bold, not really shouting. smiley

I'm pretty sure keeping the landscape deformations in sync between 12 people playing online is quite a challenge.

Red faction multiplayer is still going well after all these years, there's still servers and people. The same goes for descent 2!

The PS2 version only had 2 player local multiplayer, as far as I can remember.

All this talk about Descent makes me want to play it again. Especially if it's been upgraded for Windows XP.
5224  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Scanahand RC1 Released on: February 29, 2008, 11:00:25 AM
I tried it again, following the guide lines more closely and using a Sharpie. It was perhaps a little too thick, but now it looks a lot more like my real handwriting.

[attachthumb=#]

Sometimes when I consider writing a letter to someone, I usually end up typing it out, for fear that they won't be able to read my handwriting. I could make a template using this program where I took a lot of time to slow down and make my penmanship legible, then still type out the letter and have it look handwritten.

I really like this program!

Maybe this would look better if I took the time and filled out the sheet correctly and with a better marker, but it seems to me that the whitespace space is too small between words. Seems like when I press the space bar, there should be a more noticeable space between the words.

I'm also curious as to why the carat (^) is used as space for a signature. Why not just use one of the - ? - for the carat and put the signature somewhere else.

Also in my observation, there was no character for the ` key (next to the number 1).

Anyway, I'll print out another template and do it correctly and see how it affects the results.
