This article is a good read for anybody who is freelancing or running their own business. Although it involves a designer, this same sort of solicitation often crops up with coders and other technical professionals.
his work is lovely too Kiss

another quote from BuzzFeed:
Quote
In response, a spokesperson for Showtime told BuzzFeed:

    Showtime is a strong supporter of artists around the world. This contest, like many others, is entirely optional. Under the contest guidelines, those who choose to submit their art are eligible for a grand prize of a Las Vegas trip, in addition to invaluable national exposure across multiple platforms.

However, Cassaro is unimpressed.

He told BuzzFeed: “The whole thing is just unethical. You would never cold call a bunch of licensed electricians and ask them to do the lighting for an event like this for free. You certainly wouldn’t ask them to hashtag their ‘submission’ on Twitter to drive traffic to your website.

He added: “To call it a contest is a bit insulting. A contest is guessing how many jellybeans are in the jar so you can win all the jellybeans. … To participate in a contest like this as a working professional devalues the work of everyone.”

I've recently encountered this a lot while trying to download/play Ludum Dare 30 games, but having the downloads blocked by Chrome with seemingly no way to keep them anyway.

I'm glad I never fully went down the Chrome road

Well, it's over at last and she didn't make it through. Sad It was a pretty tense finale, they were the last to find out their verdict, and it was chosen by the judges. The way they structure the show is just so stressful... Anyway, she got really far and did great, I'm very proud of her. Thanks once again to all of you who watched, voted, and read about this little moment in my life. smiley

Sorry to hear that :-(
But well done to her, and I hope she continues down that road Kiss

Glaswegian is...not exactly what one would classify as "lovely".......... Grin

Beyond Scottish, I wasn't sure where exactly it was - I'll stick by my 'lovely' classification though - no matter what people think :p
I like a good strong characterful accent (there's lots of them in England too).

Would not clearing the archive bit work, assuming your backuup method just copied everything without twiddling bits?

I thought of that, and my backup (Syncovery) does allow *not* using it (I'll have to check what it does by default).
Any tips how I do that? (again, I searched unsuccessfully embarassed)
311  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Easy way to mark file as done? on: August 22, 2014, 08:36:06 AM
For my purposes at the moment, read-only is ideal:
  • quick and visible by anyone anywhere
  • if I (or someone else) decide the file needs more work, it simply gets replaced by a new version (they're PDF's created from working files) - this new version will not be read-only, so I can see at a glance what is unfinished /not-checked /not-approved-yet


Me think, "read-only" is a file attribute and could be set even by accident.

Wouldn't be renaming (adding a tag. e.g. a leading or trailing underscore)
or moving to a folder (e.g. sub folder "\Done") be a option?
Your used file managers would do that by a script from a button click or a keyboard shortcut.

renaming is not an option (in this case, I'd have to change the names back);
but simply moving to a sub-folder could be the easiest solution thumbs up
Funny how sometimes the easy ways are the ones you dont think of first undecided


I was thinking today though:
ideally I'd have and use a cross between an IM and a file manager, that is fully integrated with a commentable versioning backup system :-)

How does downloading something for free fund anything? tellme Please tell me that's photoshopped or somehow satirical.

Unfortunately, I don't think it is. But the insanity is still funny in a dark way.

EDIT: I did a bit of Photoshop analysis on it, and it looked like it was shopped (some lines were a bit straight). So I looked into it more. See here:

316  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: [Solved] Easy way to mark file as done on: August 22, 2014, 02:36:24 AM
It would still be nice to have an optional way of colouring "done" or read-only file differently from the rest.  Maybe there are ways to do that in advanced file managers...

that would be nice. In this case read-only is a solution, but where it isn't...

If you commit to always using one of those heavy duty file managers you mention, they may have their own way of leaving notes or tagging files that will display them differently within that program.

yeah, I see they both support tags of some sort, must look closer there.

Maybe I'll remove the [Solved] prefix and see if there's any more suggestions.

Thanks everyone. Now share yours!

well you might inspire me to get in gear and upload a few pics - which I haven't done in years. Did work on a batch lately but was nearly all with family.
Here's one though from July in Ireland (click for 768*1024):

I guess the easiest way is via the quick-capture-bar which is docked on the top of the screen.
Click the button there with tooltip "Select post-capture options ..."
this menu will show:

that should do it !
322  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: [?] Easy way to mark file as done [/?] on: August 21, 2014, 07:31:10 AM
Solved
should have used the brain a bit more before posting embarassed

Simply select the files:
  • alt+enter to show properties
  • press 'r' for read-only
  • return out

[edit] Note: I found a solution for this case (post#2 simply marking files as read-only), but very interested in any other suggestions - also those that will only work in one file manager! [/edit]

I'm looking for a simple way to mark files as "done".

I would like to use a method that is part of the file and visible in various file managers, so I guess changing one of the file attributes would be the way to go (e.g. archive it - is that the same as making it read only? that would be fine).
The attribute could be easily displayed in detail mode in any file manager.

So I reckon using a file manager would probably be the easiest route (?)
I currently have XYplorer and Dopus installed, so could use either of them, (or windows explorer).

I did do a search online, and in both help files, but my search-fu isnt very good, so didnt come up with anything helpful. (Note: I'm a fairly basic user.)

TIA for any suggestions smiley
