101  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Your favorite cartoons of yesterday and today? on: October 28, 2014, 08:30:42 AM
... 1940's era Superman cartoons by Paramount Studios
... Low on plot, silly stories - but at least the characters looked like they did in the comic books. The artwork was superb. Nice art deco look.

very good Thmbsup
Look very 1930's in style (artwork, architecture) which would be logical enough I guess

Ok, I noticed only now that there is a wonderful option "Update clip modification date on paste" that is exactly what I was looking for. smiley

good - I went to preview my post and see you found it thumbs up

What you need is sync software that will monitor files and copy any changes over.
I use Syncovery (aka Super Flexible File Synchroniser, or SFFS) - lots of info about it here on dc.

The one Stephen mentions has a very good reputation - here's the most recent dc thread:
Bvckup 2 is in open beta !

I'm sure there's a few others that would fit the bill

I notice your numbers use commas instead of periods.  Is this something that is REQUIRED or could we use the standard decimalization such as 46.60?

it takes that from your windows settings.

would you consider this (or would it need a separate app?).
an app that would show what 'y' is:
y + 19%(of y) = 20.00

So I would start with the '20.00', add the percentage, and it would tell me something like y=16.60

hi Kellyzkorner,
I cant help you with your request, but wanted to say:
if the clips are important to you, you should back them up regularly.
Even more so if you are messing around with the script ...

Link for anyone wanting a look at ClipStep:

AFAIK that panel uses windows explorer -
does Windows Explorer work for you for png file thumbnails?

OS info maybe? & SC version (current non-beta is 4.9.0) may be helpful

I enjoyed the post blitz thumbs up

No worries on this one -
it might pass under the radar :-D

Is this really DC material?
Lets face it, you know that half of those topics will end up in the basement (which makes about six sensitive topics in one thred ohmy).

You dont have to be a graphic designer here - just creative smiley

If you can draw/design something roughly, someone else** would have the technical ability to polish it if necessary.

** e.g. me :p
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Watch A Hornet Be Cooked Alive By Bees on: October 25, 2014, 04:23:55 PM
I had a (european) hornet nest above the front door two years in a row (two different locations).
They got indoors occasionally, but I didnt have a problem with them (mind you @ ~30mm, they are pretty scary and do get the adrenalin flowing).
Apparently, unlike the Japanese variety, their sting is not very dangerous - thankfully...
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Watch A Hornet Be Cooked Alive By Bees on: October 25, 2014, 02:51:36 PM
That video needs a strobe-light warning tellme

Incredibly impressive how species evolve to figure out stuff like this...
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: (Video): When to use a comma. on: October 25, 2014, 02:37:36 PM
Oh, ffs, this is like being back at school cheesy

* Stephen66515 posts a video about commas, in spite of the fact it might remind us of school :p (good use of commas, innit?)

I'm reminded: I joined the donationcoder fan club a couple of years ago - where you get stickers, membership card, etc. in the post.
I can still remember the envelope from Jesse, this was stamped on the back:
; Semi-colon
The most under-
punctuation mark
114  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Ability to open clips/notes in pop-up window and rich text formating on: October 24, 2014, 02:31:07 PM
PS. Is there a shortcut to paste the last clip as plain text (something like PureText)?

AFAIK the default hotkey to paste (last clip) as plain text is Ctrl+Shift+V (check in options/hotkeys in case different)

Cant help with the others apart from adding a +1 to the requests :-)
And welcome to dc!
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Wanted to get some opinions on current ultrabooks if possible on: October 24, 2014, 03:51:54 AM
As Stephen says, a confusing post ...

Every one of the normal brand ultra-books I tried failed for one reason or another.

can you give us a list of what exactly you mean by "Every one..." ?
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox windows and CPU slow-downs and restarts on: October 23, 2014, 02:12:57 PM
Yeah, Firefox has been a problem on win7 x64 here for a long time now. (And I gave up on PaleMoon x64 completely cause it just took over.)
Lately it's been very slow after startup, so I just leave it a minute or two.

I restart it every day - & also use Session Manager - you can set it to show a list of sessions on startup, your choice then which to go with.
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: when will we eventually be able to on: October 22, 2014, 09:55:02 AM
in order for something to get implemented properly, you need people with a clear vision, and with a lot of enthusiasm - but you also need people who see the problems. Those are two different approaches: if the first doesnt take the second into account, you get a botch job; i.e. both approaches are necessary.
From a practical POV,
it doesnt really make much sense that you keep trying to convert those with the latter approach, to your enthusiastic approach.

Why are cats so different from dogs in this way [responsiveness to owner's voice]? The researchers speculate that the difference can be explained by evolutionary history: dogs were domesticated an estimated 15,000 years ago, compared to just 9,500 years for cats. Additionally, it's believed that dogs were actively selected by humans (to guard and herd animals), whereas cats likely selected themselves, spending time near people simply to eat the rats consuming grain stores. This difference — along with the extra evolutionary time — could explain why dogs are so much more interested in responding to the human voice.

they miss out on possibly the most relevant difference here:
cats are loners, dogs are pack animals.
   Dogs respond to their 'owner' as the leader of the pack (then again, with some owners, this doesnt quite work as it should...).
   Cat's dont see you as an owner, nor as a leader.

122  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: How to save an enlarged image? on: October 18, 2014, 01:55:32 PM
hi xbeatle (I almost posted that with the mistyped xbeastle :-))

the zoom is only for 'preview' - if you want to resize the image:
in the menu under Edit, click Resize image or canvas

Resizing the canvas ("Expand canvas") would make a border around the current image, so you need to deselect that.
Hang on I'll make a screenshot - go with the options below.
"Preserve ratio" is important.
Then increase the pixel number as desired, or the percentage.


I'm not sure what the best "Smoothing filter" is here - you could experiment - but it is important to note that, as soon as you resize a screenshot, you will lose a lot of the quality/crispness of the image.

Resized image @150% below (click to enlarge)


that's a lot better than I would have expected actually thumbs up
123  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: SoftMaker Office HD, the only complete Office for Android tablets, free beta rev on: October 17, 2014, 12:23:38 PM
^I noticed that.
FWIW, I think it could also be just straight-forward enthusiasm.

@CoolCat26 either way is actually fine:
if you are associated with the company though, it is expected that you state that (and here, that's no disadvantage, the opposite often).
But, as you can see -
if you only post about one app in your first few posts in a forum, it, eh, creates the wrong impression...

PS are you going to write us a mini-review then ? cheesy

Reminded me of Perpetual Ocean -- may be y'all seen it already smiley

also brilliant - reminds me of Van Gogh's paintings :-)
