@Tomos: No TC plug-in to do this?

you're asking someone who just won a license but hasnt even had time to install it yet
-
anyone else know if there's a TC plugin to show if TIFF files compressed or not?

Did you check out IrfanView?  Seems to do everything else.

I checked the plugins page and there's nothing there,
but maybe the programme itself can do it, will check
5178  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / tool to check if TIFF files compressed ? on: June 22, 2009, 03:36:14 PM
Didnt know where to post this ...

I'm looking for a tool that will tell me if a TIFF file has been compressed (or better still one that will check 100 tiff files in a folder and tell me ..)
AFAIK with TIFF files it's B/W - they're either compressed or not

The reason I'm checking is they supposed to be not compressed if they going to press/publication. The only way I know how to do it is
       a) save a couple & estimate the rest (and get shot if there's a problem later)
       b) resave them all - this is so mindless that you start making mistakes anyways . .

If there's nothing out there and people think it's even possible, I'll post it in coding snacks, thanks!!

Polish Bisongrass vodka  smiley
One of the few Vodkas that actually taste decent, and can be drunk without mixing it smiley
I havent heard of that one -
there's a nice one available here: Moskovskaya (Russian) 'wodka' - it's got a nice little hint of marzipan in the after-taste smiley
Saw somewhere that vodka was traditionally drunk with a meal - I tried it a couple of times, and it does go very well with food. (I add a tiny bit of water and sip)
5183  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: June 21, 2009, 11:53:59 AM
mouser, I'm trying to set up FARR to run on a usbstick and search only (or at least first) in that drive
OS: XP home

I have activated the "PORTABLE=TRUE" line as mentioned above by removing the \\\ before it.
I've added the current path to USB programmes folder and unticked everything else (for the moment) and it's finding stuff

so I'm wondering is that enough or do I need a relative path to the usbstick programmes folder? (if so can you give example of a relative path - I know the theory but havent actually used them. FARR is in same programme folder)

smiley many thanks, tom

And while some may prefer to just be quiet about it, to keep some ambiguity, it is our responsibility to at least ask if we want the resulting list to be looked upon with credibility.

agree absolutely regards list -
but me, (speaking with self-employed hat):-
I'm going to continue using software unless it states in the lisence, or programme webpages, that it is not for commercial use (or that it's only for personal use, or to contact author, etc)
5185  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: fully free software utilities for biz use on: June 20, 2009, 07:30:56 PM
(various edits to previous post)

Re Lisence terms in general:
Having gone through my portable programmes folder and looking at lisences - many arent specific.
Would it not be up to the author to say in the lisence if there are restrictions on use e.g. if it just says freeware and no other comments about how you use it would that not mean usable anywhere by anyone?
5186  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: fully free software utilities for biz use on: June 20, 2009, 06:21:32 PM
memuse show memory in use and available memory. Also virtual memory (page file, I think)
It only works up to XP, seems to be okay for commercial - there may well be something better - I came across it at one stage when I was worried that some of my memory wasnt being used

EDIT(s)

Osiva viewer, again seems to be okay for commercial use

not sure do you want to venture into word-processors -
because it's light and portable & I just checked the lisence I'll throw in Jarte into the mix http://www.jarte.com/

looking for trouble are you cheesy
dont get me started about Adobe lol (at least I've gotten to the stage I can laugh about it, eh . . today anyway)

more of the same:
I'm looking at an upgrade to [English language] Illustrator - it's 40% more expensive in Europe than in US - and that's not even including tax Sad (another 20% on top of that waaah)

and
Buying/installing/experiencing Adobe - PIA

Or eBay in the UK
hi Carol
thanks for that offer too - as you can see above I'm now happily sorted.

I was suprised to see it's still selling for up to 290 euros here in germany (mainly the german version which is probably rarer than the english version - I see german language versions of New adobe products are quite a bit more expensive than eng.versions)
But then it's still a very capable programme and for my uses I never needed to update . .
5194  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Need to d'load unavailable soft - but where is safe? on: June 18, 2009, 04:04:48 AM
problem resolved - someone got me a copy of it - thanks Kiss
thanks all for help Thmbsup
5195  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Need to d'load unavailable soft - but where is safe? on: June 17, 2009, 04:41:25 PM
Have you tried calling Adobe? If you have a licensed copy they should be able to supply it as either a CD or a download.

after wandering around the website for a [good] while, I discovered they offer replacement CDs - for money - but only for 90 days after an upgrade to that product has been offered.
They really dont care what people think of them do Adobe Sad
so I doubt very much that they will offer a download . .
5196  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Getting spam with my friends email address in the subject line on: June 17, 2009, 04:33:13 PM
It happened me once (2001 or so-ish) when I didint have a clue* that my email address was used and people received spam from my address. No idea how, but as I say I had absolutely no clue then about anything (I had first started using pc's a year or two prior to that).

What should one do in this situation? (if it's your address being abused) - abandon the account, tell the provider?

same here,
thanks again fenix for all the work on this  Thmbsup

See Any freeware alternatives to Faststone MaxView? for an attempt to find free for work image viewer (no real success I think)

Might be considered veering very off-topic so I'll put these fonts in a spoiler

Have you seen this looks pretty legit and you said file sizes vary from 50-70 mb and that one is 76.

thanks Loki - I had actually seen that - it eventually leads to
