do you have a beamer Mike?
that might help, or might make it too much like a presentation?
Are there no guidelines from MS?

How do you apply? ('FREE' always gets me going embarassed)
What's to stop you just having a nice party and not paying too much attention to Win.7 (or whats to stop you from just taking your free disk and doing nothing... I grew up in a land of corruption - that was the first question that came to my mind)

sorry for the barrage of questions - answer whichever you want Wink

or maybe the people on that video are trapped in a hellish world of continual windows 7 parties and party planning 24 hours a day.
HAHAHAHA!

they wake up every morning, check the date - damn, it's windows 7 day again

I gotta say I dont really know what they're about - do you need to try and sell Win7 or does someone come and do a presentation...
or what's the idea of them?

[...]
who can reliably make CHS fail to paste into the last active window -- are you willing to test versions of CHS if i upload for you -- to help me diagnose the problem?

It fails very regularly here mouser - but not reliably in the sense I cant predict exactly when it will fail.
Happy to test if you want.

If it's any consolation I had problems with ditto as well (I missed too many CH&S features as well so still using). Havent tried any other apps.

BTW that option is ticked here

Big thanks, hewhoeatspie. This will solve several problems I have had.
Sure hope I can find a download soon.

didnt click what exactly you meant till I tried to download it myself - File not found!

Trout seems to have stolen the F12 key here
-
I have a couple of apps that use F12 as a shortcut. When Trout is running, F12 doesnt work in those apps.
(This has been going on a while, I just hadnt made the effort to find out what was causing it)

I just have just four hotkeys in Trout at the moment, none including F12...

5239  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Manually resort files & rename according to new sequence - possible? on: September 23, 2009, 02:53:51 AM
Is there an app that can do this:

I want to 'manually' reorganise the sequence of a bunch of thumbnails, and then rename them according to the new sequence (i.e. so they will sort in the new order in file manager by name).

Using just a list view would be okay if it cant be done with thumbnail view

A renamer, file manager, or a coding snack maybe?
thanks, Tom

I removed the funny pictures of my dog Cliff, because he became a very heavy brain damage last night and so I had to put him down today .
I´ll never forget you after all the 13 years we had. (see attachment in previous post)

I very sorry to hear that news Crush

just sent some credits your way awopbamboo -
not to bribe you into more work on it smiley but because you just saved me from having to open about 30 PDFs and print them individually Thmbsup
5242  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: SuperDuperRoboPrinter on: September 20, 2009, 10:13:47 AM
hi awopbamboo
you'll be cursing me undecided Wink

If you select "Shred file" (with PDFs at any rate) the files get deleted before they get printed - i.e. adobe reader cant print them.
5243  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is it so hard to find a decent image organizer? on: September 19, 2009, 04:37:41 PM
Zevel,
I 'm not sure about ExifPro, I think probably it's tagging wont be what you are looking for - it is a great viewer.
Here's what I said about it earlier this year

I would say ExifPro is great for looking at an image collection that isn't organised - it loads thumbnails very quickly and has a good viewer as Jim says
but:
I discussed the matter of the IMHO way too limited tagging option with the programmer years ago. It's obviously not one of his top priorities.
Create several tag files, but not too many, don't get tempted to use tags as keywords. Use other software to add exif keywords instead.
I think the tagging in ExifPro is to help you select images for printing or moving etc (i.e. short term, limited)

'Cataloging' in the programme is mainly aimed at recording images on removable disks or creating 'virtual' collections - images saved at up to 1280 x 1280 pixels

Tagging (IPTC for Jpegs): you can use keys 1 to 9 & 0 as shortcuts for the first ten tags. it cannot tag certain file types - problem here being it chokes on say, a tif file and wont apply tag to any selected files after the tif file - this probably not a problem for most people (me neither, I just happened to be testing iin a 'mixed' folder).
You can give an image multiple tags but there is no organisation/hierarchy of tags - just a list.

You can filter to in include or exclude tags; also based on a 'star' rating; include/exclude by text (partial) in filename; also by filtering rules - see spoiler below.
You can save filters based on combo of all these filters (I think that's new since last time I tried it)

then there's editing of 'File Info'
Quote
File information is saved in the XMP format (XML-based), defined by Adobe Corporation. This data is either embedded in photos (in the case of JPEG files) or written to a stand-alone XML file accompanying photograph's file (raw formats).
...
File Info Tool can operate on the currently selected photograph (its name is shown in the window's caption). However if multiple images are selected before entering File Info dialog, then the same set of information will be applied to all of them when the user presses ‘Save to All’ button:
You can save templates for this data with shortcuts Alt+1 to 9

hope that helps,
Tom

edit/ PS have you also seen this thread: Basic Question on Photo Tagging

XP home SP2 but otherwise uptodate

As I said above, I have had problems before with file association which I suspect are related to Directory Opus (version 8 ) which replaces Windows Explorer on my machine. (Explorer still runs but Dopus intercepts calls to Explorer and replaces it then - this shouldn't effect SDRP (?), but I wouldn't know!)
5245  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: SuperDuperRoboPrinter on: September 16, 2009, 06:06:53 AM
I seem to have sorted out my file association problems. Double click a tiff or tif file now opens in paint.

Unfortunately SuperDuperRoboPrinter (can I call it SDRP from now on?!) still doesnt work for tiffs.
  • Open SDRP. Remove .tiff from the list of extensions.*
  • First attempt with just one tiff file in the monitored folder, nothing happens.
  • Second attempt, it opens again in the windows viewer.

This probably related
:
I notice that removing the extension from the list of extensions doenst stick - if I click "save settings" and reopen SDRP, .tiff is there again. Ironically though the tiff files I have - they have a .tif extension (just one 'f'). I dont know could that be a factor - I dont think so but..

I will uninstall both and continue searching.

Well I found the stuff about Steve Pavlina and other self help 'gurus' good. It is an interesting topic.
What's often not considered is why people are so desperate for all this self-help - the answer to it all is presumably there in the answer to that question. Not that that helps us a whole lot!


A few more thoughts/comments:


Steve's "You attract what you're signaling" could just as easily be interpreted as 'if you're happy, you'll be successful'* which again isn't a whole lot of help to the unhappy of the world. But I suspect it's nearer the truth than his version . .

* I personally don't consider making excessive amounts of money as being what success is about - but making enough money is definitely a part of it.


Re your classification of self-help persons:
I personally do believe that life is great, but I just havent figured out how to consistently enjoy it, to really live it. Their instruction (according to you) is: "so you just have to believe!" which reminds me of the whole positivity slant that you hear so much about (or used to at any rate). For example: repeating positive 'assertions' (or whatever you want to call them) reminds me of the way people used to wear perfume instead of washing - you have to remove all the negative first. I probably dont even need to say 'first' there - if you remove all the negative claptrap in your head, what's left - an open neutral person. Sound to me like the way to go Wink

Why dont we all do that then (me too) ?  I think because a lot of us dont know how to say 'No'. Because we've been programmed all our lives to do what our parents want (or maybe our parent's did the opposite and pampered to our every wish which is no help either) programmed  to conform to school and society. Some rebel, but still dont really know how to say a simple 'No'. They're mostly reacting, not really rejecting.
So, what's with the 'No'?
- It's about defining our limits with others, but much more importantly, it's about defining out limits with ourselves. It's about saying to ourselves "No, I don't want or need to indulge in this unhelpful behaviour, or that way of thinking, (or whatever)". If we are lucky enough, our parents were able to give us helpful limits, to show us the way. But most people I know haven't had that luxury (me included).

hmmm I should go off and practice what I preach smiley


PS. Paul, some things arent clear above - it's not clear for example when the quotes from app103 end and when your comments begin. It's not made clear in the Pavlina part who is making the comments - if they are mixed (i.e. from the article and the related comments and maybe yours as well?) it would be helpful to state that at the beginning.

... If I remove tiff extension from the list to print with windows image viewer, the file simply opens in the viewer and nothing more happens ...
unfortunately this still the case.

Gotta say here that my (image) file associations have often been problematic (I suspect Dopus8 complicates things but not sure) - now I cant seem to get the PAint association to stick. Photoshop does work as default programme (i.e. it opens the file) but with that set as default, your app still opens the file in Windows Viewer (with no further action).

Will have another look later today, thanks for the help!
5249  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: SuperDuperRoboPrinter on: September 15, 2009, 06:49:13 AM
For PDF's it works very nicely Thmbsup

 . . but unfortunately with tiffs - they get printed to fullpage size, regardless of the actual size of the image (I havent tested any other image files but presume it's the same)
When I open the print dialogue box and look at the print queue, I see:
Full page print. I presume it's using the 'Photo printing wizard' (XP home) which doesnt give an option to print at actual size Sad

If I remove tiff extension from the list to print with windows image viewer, the file simply opens in the viewer and nothing more happens (I must check file associations again)
5250  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: SuperDuperRoboPrinter on: September 15, 2009, 06:26:52 AM
last version is much better awopbamboo
At the moment though, it prints everything in subdirectories as well - even without 'Include Subdirs' ticked
