301  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Mailpile [Beta] on: November 10, 2014, 02:05:38 PM
I had a look at the demo. It reminds me of gmail - it also appears to have the limitations of gmail:

  • I can only look at twenty mails at a time - this may be expandable to 50 or more? (I would still find this a limitation)
  • sorting does not appear to be possible (?)

I tend to use sort and scroll a lot when working with emails (using Thunderbird). Why I never used gmail much in the browser - although I like their new way of sorting the inbox a lot (different tabs for 'Social' 'Promotions' etc.), and often use of late it when first checking new mail.

But I was also playing on how we all are proud of our snacks (or other programs!) and like to add awesome and/or obscure features.

didnt really mean to supress - good response thumbs up

There's still some good info in this thread so I'll post here:

Gizmo's Best Free Font Manager is still there, last updated this year, still showing NexusFont on top (but note NexusFont was last updated mid 2012).

I'm prompted to post because MainType has just released version 6.
Now has Pro & Standard versions - tbh I dont fully understand the differences (yet):

[attachthumb=#]
http://www.high-logic.com.../maintype/comparison.html

Cost is $39/79. Upgrade from v.3 upwards is $29/39

As per email, the improvements in v.6 are:

Quote
Font Tags
Over the years numerous customers have asked us to provide better support for searching and categorizing their font library. Previous versions of MainType already came with several ways to group and categorize font collections, but the new font tagging functionality adds another dimension to managing your font library. It allows you to provide meaningful tags to your fonts, so you can easily find and use the right fonts for every occasion.

Synchronization
With font folder synchronization it is a breeze to use shared fonts on a network drive, so a team can work with exactly the same group of fonts as part of their font collection. Of course it's also possible to synchronize local font folders.

Other Improvements
Several existing features have been improved. The backup and restore features are accessible through the Tools menu. Numerous new toolbar icons have been added, and several dialogs have been redesigned.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but since Windows 7 there have been shortcut keys to fit a window to the right or left of the screen: Windows Key + Left Arrow and Windows Key + Right Arrow.

There's also an app from MilesAhead here on dc, let's see, here's a review I wrote:
MoveIt - windows management app - Mini-Review

I use it in conjunction with GridMove (and Windows' default Winkey + Arrow keys) in Windows 7.
(I dont know if Moveit works in Windows 8.)

Maybe its ethically wrong, and i am a man of ethics.

thanks hulkbuster Thmbsup
it's very much a greyzone - and I know if I found the key for myself I'd use it. Was just wary of the sharing part.

If they dont share the serial number, I think that we shouldn't either.
311  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 04, 2014, 05:15:30 PM
hi,
this would be worth a try:

Try this:
Go to the options tab labeled "Window Capturing 1" and uncheck the box marked "Try to capture Aero Glass transparency effects".

See if that solves it.
Thank you for your answer. I found that one earlier but checked anyway.
Here are the results:
"Aero Gloss..." unchecked: black interior
Window capturing 2, first check box "Try to detect..." unchecked: black interior
Window capturing 2, below, "Do not try ..." checked: Well, folks, I can't believe it: regular screenshot of the whole window!!!!!!
Double checked with both items checked in window capturing 2: Also okay screenshot.
It looks very much like that option "Do not try to use PrtWindow() API ..." is the key, at least for my current problem.

You think it would help anybody else, maybe?

This doesnt quite fit in here as it's more about design, but it is related - and interesting, so I'll chance it:

It's a new app in development by Adobe for the iPad (I presume they will extend this to Windows anyway).
Idea is an app where you can quickly mock up your ideas, and export them as Ai or PSD etc.

Re Adobe's plans for touch/mobile computing, this article is well worth a read:
http://www.forbes.com/sit...-adobe-about-cloud-first/
(there's a lot of talk about Surface Pro 3 there too)
 -
they have a few free (I think) apps for iPad now that are related to their main suite - I dont know how good they are

Dr. Batty's Asthma Cigarettes:  "Not recommended for Children under 6"

I wonder were they actually made with tobacco though -
there is a herb (Coltsfoot I think) that is supposed to improve asthma when smoked.

I much prefered 'The Guard'


One of my favorites.  I used to watch it with the English subs on to catch all the dialog.  The type of flick I could watch every 3 or 4 months or so.   Thmbsup

318  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: YouTube finally forces creation of google+ A/C to comment on: October 30, 2014, 07:40:42 AM
My YouTube/G+ account uses my YT name, but is connected with my 'real-name' gmail address.
Here's what I now see when in G+ which is under my Youtube name (clicking the icon top-right of page; Win7 x64; Firefox)

[attachthumb=#]

Notice that the gmail account + real name is labeled 'default'.
I think this is simply a bug (it works different in Win8) but I'll chance asking:
Anyone know if there's any way of changing this, and making my YT/G+ name/account the default ?

it's slightly different on a YT page

[attachimg=#]

   1) my email (no name)
   2) my YT name
   3) just my email again

If I click on the 'change' after my YT name I just get brought to my G+ page

'Calvary' (2014) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2234003/

[attachimg=#]

a bit of a bleak film, beautiful scenery (worth seeing in the cinema), interesting ideas, not supenseful - but lots of tension.
For me, the film ultimately didnt work - it trys to redeem it's bleakness, and 'headiness', with an emotional connection that didnt convince, so I wasn't left with much at the end...

I much prefered 'The Guard' (2011) myself (same director/writer, also with Brendan Gleeson in lead role) - http://www.imdb.com/title...40133/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk1
Although in fairness, 'Calvary' attempts to be a much deeper film.

I seem to remember something like this posted on the forum.. but if not, i'd like to second this request. I've run out of battery power before because the cord had come unplugged and I didn't notice.

something like this was requested not long ago... found it:
4wd posted a script for it -

YTOTPC* - Pretty boring, any time there's a power state change it'll pop up a message box.  This could be connecting or disconnecting AC power.

321  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
322  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Sort by last paste time on: October 27, 2014, 03:10:56 PM
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
324  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 RELEASE: Discounter on: October 27, 2014, 12:59:12 AM
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.


@dmytron
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 ...
