5276 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor -2.78.01 - Dec 24th, 2009 on: January 06, 2010, 02:04:02 PM
1) Not impressed that it automatically took all my existing files and placed them in subfolders without asking (hint, a prompt would have been nice). Resulted in a "WTF !" but was easy enough to work out and undo.

You're right -- the new autofiling option is on by default in the new version; at least on first use it should come up and tell user what's about to happen and give them option to disable.

that had me in a little panic for a while too I'll tell you (just got the update today)
I personally dont see any advantage to the new filing system - cant I sort by date if I want to ? although maybe not in SC itself? - I usually sort the folder by date (or name) in file manager

well, I've finally gone widescreen (& flatscreen lol) - just yesterday so still adjusting

16:10 as opposed to 4:3 (which is 16:12 undecided)
It's amazing how much difference those two units make to the proportions of the screen. I miss the 4:3 format and would ideally like two 4:3's, I think, but space is limited. Maybe on a 24" (as opposed to 22") the screen wouldnt feel quite so compressed (top to bottom)

Got this one Dell 2209WA - 'only' 22 inch but has an e-IPS panel (as opposed to TN) so has great viewing angles and almost perfect sRGB colour out of the box. Have the option to return it within two weeks but suspect I'll be sticking with it smiley 
(It's a great price here but not the best for gamers I think)

all else I can say at the moment is thank João for Gridmove Wink
5278  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: “Is PayPal good for your microISV business?” A short PayPal horror story on: January 06, 2010, 12:34:26 PM
By the way, the Amazon payment system is now quite competitive with paypal for small amounts.

having read some of the linked pages I think I'll be avoiding PayPal where possible, I only use it for making payments but I don't want to support a company that works like that.

I dont know much about Amazon, - they have made buying stuff dead easy which I'm sure has helped them - it's a pleasure to buy stuff there it's so easy!
hmmm  . . .  Amazon Payments only seems to be available to United States residents - it doesnt allow me to change the country in the activation form. Also they only allow US residents to add Bank Accounts, which would actually be the more common way of paying online in Germany (also via PayPal). I wouldnt care what I pay with (CC or Bank a/c) but it looks like I'll have to wait for Amazon

Do you mean when you go back to save a second version of a page that it overwrites the previous version?
mhtml should open in IE or Opera - have you tried opening the various files with different browsers?
If you save file as Web Page, complete (that's how it's described in FF at any rate), it should save the images in a folder with the same name as the file name - is it possible you moved the html file but left the associated folder somewhere?
I used to save web pages & had problems with mht but not with others

There's a few different software that do this - the only ones I know personally are Surfulater & InfoQube, both of which I would recommend
Surfulater saves all content in a large file
InfoQube gives you various choices - link to images or store them locally

There are a few others (there was a thread not too long ago about which the best but I cant remember the name of it..) but if you want to compare before & after / changes to a site >> TucknDar's recommendation

We'll have to start a thread for pretty pics of file managers lol
I know when Superboyac got into Dopus he got it to look like TC.
It probably depends a lot on your theme - TC is very functional looking & looks fine out of the box if you have a nice Classic theme (I think).
Nothing looks good with the default XP theme (hah!)
I cant imagine what default TC would look like with Aero, culture shock I think.

Sortof getting back on topic, XY looks good out of the box - again very functional but not as clunky as TC

Oh, there's one thing I'm not 100% certain about, though: is the rule for choosing "an" that there's a vowel, or a "vowel-sound"? Iirc it's the latter.

Yes, it's based on how it sounds rather than how it is spelled.

Examples: a house, an hour, a xylophone, an x-ray

just thinking about it, the 'y' sound is usually (always?) said with an 'a'
a yulelog (whatever that is)
a yoghurt dessert
a yam

also when it starts with e but sounds like y
a ewe

English is pretty weird all right when you look at it closely
5282  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ten Words You Need to Stop Misspelling on: January 01, 2010, 08:20:39 AM
Fun allright all right
I suspect 'alot' will be a single word in the future (along [a long?tongue] with a lot of other changes)

PS lovely font there - Fontin I think

What I mean by duplicate is identical data, regardless of name

that sounds good - any tips re the download link - I'm afraid I dont know where to begin over there...

other thread here http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=21126.0

I'd love to get something like this as well, for the taskbar, and, (if possible) for a Directory Opus taskbar-like toolbar

5285  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is there no eps plugin for ACDSee? on: December 31, 2009, 02:18:19 AM
I believe Adobe Bridge shows EPS files - FWIW
Support for vector files in viewers/managers has always been between minimal & non-existent. I suspect it's difficult without much mainstream demand...

Microsoft ICE was a minor part of some other, bigger project, and has not been updated for more than a year. Might never be.

I wanted to warn people about the problem so that they could avoid the time and effort of installing and uninstalling it.

thanks Arizona,
any chance you could reduce the images to thumbnail view in your previous post ?
- instead of [attachimg=#], use [attachthumb=#] - listed as "inline thumb attachment" in the dropdown box - thanks!

Would make it easier to get an overview Wink
5287  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Search with Bing on: December 30, 2009, 03:55:51 PM
Just trying it out - I'll probably stick with it for a while
It caters a little better towards international needs than google does

In Google it's a pain to change settings (click click click etc etc)
It's easier in Bing thumbs up

Strangely though - I added the Bing (official) Search Plugin to FF, it recognised my location (Germany) but only offered me the 'United Kingdom" search site, probably because my OS language setting is English(Ireland).
Eventually I realised that by clicking on the 'United Kingdom" link, I get offered to change to a different country (logical but I managed to take quite a while to figure it out - if you want to make a GUI foolproof get me to test it!)
5288  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Search with Bing on: December 30, 2009, 03:05:34 PM
Example 1: search the following phrase- "The more from it you take, the more it becomes."
Example 2: search the following terms- antidupl doublepics

In each case I'm getting DC results with Bing and no DC results with Google. If you're getting different results, then I obviously have something messed up.

same here for example one

I started off doing web clippings of the various posts and ended up adding the relevant links (to the info in your first post of the lists). I did a little editing and took the liberty of using lower case for sub-headings.

Has this been blogged ?

I thought that doPDF and PDF-Xchange Viewer were both free for commercial use.

fully-free software for biz - image editing-viewing - PDF - printing
says yes in both cases

Good idea
I wonder what the 'Restore Defaults' button there does?
5293  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Batch photo filter software? on: December 29, 2009, 04:38:48 PM
What are 8bf filters, please?

8bfw is the file extension of photoshop filters*
Other image editing programmes started using them as well.

I've seen other related formats, e.g. 8bs, also used by P'shop

*AFAIK there is now a newer format as well (?). I still work with photoshop 5.5 so I wouldnt know ;-)

By the way the problem Tomos had with crashing is related to a known problem with an older version of the fsubscript.dll found in some other plugins.
See http://www.donationcoder....=9306.msg176615#msg176615 for more info.
entertainingly embarrassing when I get a link to my own advice in response to a problem I report... lol

@Perry Mowbray: I made a few years ago a cryptor/decryptor of such texts for a coding-contest. You can decode the whole bible in only a few seconds with it with very good results - a lot of languages and slangs are supported cheesy. If you have enough memory you can even calculate new words and grammatical variants that can be used for decoding. It is called the Salatschleuder. I improved it after the contest. So download the final version here if you like.  Wink
Hi Crush
I'm not sure what you mean by "a cryptor/decryptor of such texts" or "You can decode the whole bible" - I presume it's something for coders but I may be wrong... ?

ahh, I see - got to read this first

on first use only I got an error (& crash) but no problems after a restart
there was a second error message but then it crashed before I could copy the other.

Seems to be working fine now after restart - I'll be using this one, thanks mouser!
