If you want REALLY authentic italian-style single-cup coffee, get one of these:

that's what I'm using thumbs up

PS that coffee machine is very reasonable...

Just to clear the obvious out of the way - I presume this is what you attempted:

Quote
Instructions for using this license key:
  • Select and copy (Ctrl+C) the multi-line license key above
  • Open the "About Box" in the program of ours that you want to register (from menu choose Help->About) [or access via tray-icon context menu]
  • Click the "Enter New License Key" button
  • Paste this text it into the application and Click "Accept" [paste via Ctrl+V, or via button]
  • You can check or change your license status at any time from this About box
http://www.donationcoder.com/Keys/


I notice in that "Enter New License Key" dialog, you can also load it from a file - you could try that as a workaround:
create a text file with a .dat extension, and paste your license into it. Browse to the file from the "Enter New License Key" dialog. (Note: my license starts with *r1; and is paragraph length.)

I watched the video and wondered what was so entertaining about it... I found it amusing with the dog being all dressed up and stuff, but not especially entertaining. Until the end. Heh heh. Now I see what you were talking about. Grin

No - I'm just easily entertained smiley
The end does make it, but I just loved that little twist on "that look you gave that guy, I wanna see, looking back at me".

I wonder if there's such a thing as a consumer model cafe con leche machine?  That's the only coffee I like to drink now.  The machines the restaurants use have an espresso coffee maker with a siphon that heats the milk.  They make each cup individually.
  • is that steamed milk then?
  • what, roughly, are the proportions milk to coffee?
(trying to figure the difference from a cappuccino)

There are consumer versions of those machines (most are expensive, some *very*); I make something like that at home with a traditional espresso pot and heat/whisk the milk (not too hot though, or you get that boiled milk flavour) - does take a bit of work...

Eels - Things the Grandchildren Should Know
- Very few artists write songs that have the same impact as a good Eels song do. Live version.

interesting lyrics there...

dont know a lot of Eels music (apart from the classic Novocaine For The Soul), came across this one lately - nice song with an entertaining video:

134  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recommend image comparison tool, please? on: October 09, 2014, 08:19:11 AM
I bought Photo Supreme lately (formerly idImager).

I'm still trying to figure it out (have toyed with a couple but never *fully* used an image catalog programme)
It can show six images side by side via the 'Light box'

[attachthumb=#]

- in case you're wondering those images are identical (just copied for the shot)

  • zoom via mouse wheel
  • mouse-down => blow-up (to 100% - which doesnt work well for my usage - I prefer to zoom manually)
  • unable to move an individual image - more relevant when comparing multiple images of a view, as opposed to versions of one file
  • 'pan' using scrollbars

I checked out their forum and they seem to be quite responsive to requests, and there's a new major update out soon.

Then again, there's another Ludum Dare coming up in December which I'm planning to participate in. That's close enough that perhaps I could combine LD31 with a NANY 2015 release. Though honestly I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about that idea, either.

that's a good idea, I'd say (why not?)
136  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Right-click tray icon displays SC and taskbar menu on: October 08, 2014, 04:16:13 PM
I actually noticed this before I updated SC on my laptop (Window 8.1 x64). Problem remained after update.

When I right-click the SC tray icon, the SC context-menu shows *behind* the taskbar, and the taskbar context-menu simultaneously displays on top.
Taskbar is on auto-hide.
No problem with other tray icons (CHS, FARR, CintaNotes, Dopus, Listary).

Previous version (I *think* it was 4.8.x):

[attachthumb=#]


latest version, 4.9.0:

the SC menu shifted a bit between versions but otherwise no difference.

I should come clean.  There was a problem introduced by latest smf forum update a few days ago; i just fixed it 5 minutes ago and was teasing you guys Thmbsup
So it should be working now.

hah, I was just going to report that it works fine in Win 8.1 (as opposed to 7 earlier)

^ Have a 'front' and 'back' for each card?

Printing - I like the focus on this.

If printing a bunch of 'cards' on one page, a couple of ideas below - may not be the direction you were thinking, but I'll throw them out anyway:

  • how about being able to emphasise importance via size? (You would then have the challenge of getting the rest to fit in the remaining space. It could be done portrait, either by rotating the card - or the text could be fit to the portrait orientation)
  • different colour backgrounds for different themes a la GTD or for different aspects or projects. Or maybe just a colour strip on the card to save on ink costs.)
139  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Fetching Preview never loads? on: October 08, 2014, 09:12:44 AM
Plain text will preview here - as soon as there's any BB code it stalls


EDIT// but if I go to edit it will no longer preview at all
140  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recommend image comparison tool, please? on: October 08, 2014, 05:43:27 AM
A possible alternative is ExifPro Image viewer:
I dont have it installed on this machine - but IIRC it will only show two images side by side in the viewer.
But Zoom and drag are simultaneously applied to both images, which is great for getting in there and comparing details (how does that work in Faststone viewer?)

yeah, only two images can be compared, but the synced zoom/drag is a great help (Ctrl+Drag will pan just one image). It is paid (~20$ without VAT) and I cannot see if they have a trial (must have...)

Checking focus:

[attachthumb=#]

I think the synced zoom and pan is key to comparing images - but maybe not so essential to compare images where e.g. you've just changed the contrast etc. (?)

works fine here -- i wonder if you dont have some other tool that has assigned alt+w and is catching it..

yeah, thanks for checking - it's actually nothing to do with CH+S:
As a hotkey, Ctrl+Alt+W also changes to Ctrl+Alt+V in other apps ohmy

I'm looking at my AHK file but I havent modified that in years...
will pursue in own thread if I need more help with it.

Only got to update today: Win7 x64

I had long ago removed the hotkey to open the main window - the toggle key tempted me to add it again:
  • I am unable to add Ctrl+Alt+W it keeps changing it to Ctrl+Alt+V
  • Alt+W gets changes to 'None'
All other letter are working fiine as shortcuts, and the 'W is working correctly otherwise

It is a German keyboard which should not make any difference -

(Note: Ctrl+Alt+W was previously being used by Popup quotes, so I removed it there and closed popup quotes - but the problem remained)

Four images is good going I think.

I dont have it installed on this machine - but IIRC it will only show two images side by side in the viewer.
But Zoom and drag are simultaneously applied to both images, which is great for getting in there and comparing details (how does that work in Faststone viewer?)

I found it great on occasions where I had to go though a lot of photos and pick out the best (e.g. wedding pics).

Thanks superboyac - very interesting stuff Kiss
the hand-held controller is a great idea.

Dont have much to contribute, FWIW, I saw a couple of videos lately about the Wacom companion (I'm sure there's lots of them out there)


and a query about the Clip Studio offer (I work with vectors but in a very traditional manner; the idea of a 'drawing' being a vector is appealing though).
Query is: what's the difference between the 'Standard' and 'Pro' - going by the price difference I'd say that Standard is, eh, not up to much (?)

Definitely my kind of weird. Cool
really good as well thumbs up

Saw a Mongolian guy doing overtone in concert a few years back but cant remember his name...
These were easier to find: this group played regularly in front of the Pompidou in Paris a few years back. There's a few videos of them in YT so they must have been 'in residence' for a while.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g7IFUFQ-N8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g7IFUFQ-N8</a>

a couple of years later they evolved into this:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-w-LMpY-zE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-w-LMpY-zE</a>

(I saw them around the time of the first video)
[edit] the first group at any rate are called Altai KhairKhan [/edit]

Oh, yeah, doesn't work in full screen reply here either.  Just shows:

"Preview post
Fetching preview..."

odd - works perfectly here - could it be browser based, or just chance?
FF 32.03 here

[attachthumb=#]

hah - I added the attachment and tried again - now it's doing the 'fetching preview' thing - unsuccessfully.
Will try clicking post...
