I'm normally not a fan of animated gifs - they usually just too fast and fidgety for my taste
but I liked this one (see attachment in previous post)
I find it hard to "judge" the ones I see daily/very often - I still like most of them which is great praise really (honestly :p)
edit/ forgot to say it's from a_lunatic

maybe best not to stare at it for too long though ...

How does it compare to Photo.NET?

have a look at the "how does it compare.." part of the review above  Grin

It is entirely possible.
Again I mention that I did say there may be some bias.
in fairness,
something I neglected to point out:
in the above results, question #3 "answers" go from 3.9 (best) to 2.7. Similarly for question #7 - from 4.1 to 2.6. (I think that's out of 5 but it doesnt say)

So down the list doesn't mean no interest ...

for those of us not in the know,
could you describe briefly - or link to a description of what this programme does? (& how it does it?)

JG has no home page for his apps but I know he's a busy man too... smiley
5234  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: XP-iso for reinstall after crash ? Dell Precision 380 on: April 13, 2009, 07:47:05 AM
I'm guessing that Dell originally set up a small partition for use with the 'hibernate' power-save option. If that's the case, and you don't use hibernation, you can get rid of it.

just curious - why would they do that?

well I've skimmed it and havent really read any of the comment answers

@ sgtevmckay
did you misread the interest in Linux/ cross platform ? [edit] it's pretty far down the list in question # 3 but of course maybe it's all there in the comments I didnt read embarassed [/edit]

I found it confusing that the choices/answers werent shown in order of popularity
e.g. 

Question # 3. Where do you think we should focus our efforts in the future? 
[shown here in order of choice - most popular to the top]

 Develop more new windows software
 Improve our existing software
 Write more software reviews
 Develop more features to help DonationCoder programmers
 Improve the online DonationCoder community
 Other (specify in next question) 
 Develop more cross platform software
 Develop web-based online tools


and
Question # 7. Which features of the site are important to you?
[shown here in order of choice - most popular to the top]

 DC Software

 Software Reviews
 Bi-monthly Newsletter

5237  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Fonts: Worth The Bloat? on: April 12, 2009, 06:05:00 AM
A Note:
I would like to see an app that sorts fonts according to type, such as serif, sans-serif, humanist, modern, etc...  But I'm guessing that information is not part of the font file.

It should be part of the file info but I have no idea ... would be great to have as a sort option all-right -
you could do it manually in MainType by adding fonts to a group ....
5238  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need some help here on: April 11, 2009, 05:14:38 PM
hope you're feeling better mouser ...

I know next to nothing about how FARR works but wouldn't it make more sense to be able to type "+tv" first and then FARR would know where to start searching when you start typing -
otherwise it's searching all the time you're typing f-a-m-i-l-y- -g-u-y etc.

To me that's the big plus about FARR - that I dont have to type so much, but then I'm no typist ...

AFAIK they can make windows startup and also programme startup slower but no references or proof !

I used MainType to uninstall a lot of my less used fonts and to "load" them when I want them - they're gone then on next Windows restart.
That may or may not suit ?

"Currently I use MainType and Unicode Font Viewer."
are you unhappy with either of them ? I think MainType is generally acknowledged as very efficient *and* user-friendly
Have you seen the thread: Font managers reviews and opinions

Cianoc,
would it not be possible to get another copy of Evernote out there somewhere ? (then again, if you want something in development)

I'm not in no way a heavy user of these apps but I'm using IQ/SQLNotes for work, web-clipping, and now am organising my notes from evernote in there too.
I'm still using Evernote as a "scratchpad"

5244  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: On developer's block, and calling it quits. Being a programmer is hard on: April 08, 2009, 02:08:24 PM
I am still in the process of experiencing the existentialist heartbreak of realizing that it's not enough in this world to just do good work and be productive.

The aspects of life and making a living can be painful for many programmers, myself included, who somehow grew up believing that if we just focused on being good programmers (or good academics) and weren't interested in being rich, that everything else would just fall into place on it's own.

The shock of having to worry about irrational chaotic business issues, when these are things you really want nothing to do with, can be very frustrating.  And in this economy, with the current trends towards giant-corporations and advertising-based revenues for everything, it can feel like you are all alone out there.

I think that's the case for anyone who isn't employed (i.e. for the self employed) and possibly these days for employed people too.

I used never think about money, I always scraped by, but you got to value your work, no matter what you do. And I mean value it many ways - appreciate it, enjoy it if you can, and realising it's monetary worth is part of that too. Personally I find that financial valueing difficult at times (amongst other things undecided)

What was that trashy advertising campaign - "because I'm worth it"    ;-)
5245  Special User Sections / The Getting Organized Experiment of 2009 / Re: The Getting Organized Experiment of 2009 - Preliminary Planning on: April 08, 2009, 11:58:05 AM
the strict model appears to be awfully unpopular

could you elaborate on the strict model Paul ?
- I think I know what you mean by it - I guess it would mean an awful lot of work for any organiser - if you were willing to go for it I would certainly happily partake, but as you've probably seen by now, my knowledge of these things is fairly minimal, so I cant see myself getting involved in organising in that way.


Yet at the same time, right now where and what model to adapt, none of us knows yet and none of us has any idea how to decide. At least, I don't. It seems that is the problem with the loose model

I think that problem is a problem with any model - making the decision to go for it
if you really favour one, say it - who knows, we may all follow you smiley

5247  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Paragon Drive Backup 9 Special Edition For Free! on: April 08, 2009, 07:38:29 AM
I bought Drive Backup 8.5 Personal for $50. Got maybe one minor update.  Now they come out with 9.0 Personal with folder exclusion features for $40.  No discount for me with version 8.5

wow, that sounds really bad - no upgrade pricing tellme
surely there are other friendlier companies out there making decent imaging software ... (although I know what it's like when you have something that just works)
5248  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need some help here on: April 08, 2009, 04:51:53 AM
well if I search for maker i get
Textmaker
Planmaker
etc.

so you could always just search for torrent as bgd77 says
it's probably found it by the time you've the second r typed (if not the first time probably the second time)

^ stands for the windows key, ! is alt, ^ is control, + is shift.

small mistake there!
# is the Win key
