havent used this but I know someone who's giving it a go
CouchSurfing

CouchSurfing is a worldwide network for making connections between travelers and the local communities they visit.

Idea being for travellers you can crash on someones couch and they get rated by visitors so as things will (hopefully) stay above board.
So, not a recommendation, but an idea.

Hmm, I am not seeing anything impressive that would let me spend money really on that list. As far as I can tell Pdf creator can do most of it. ALthough I would not suggest you to use latest versions Pdf creator because it if filled with some spyware, search toolbar crap.

which PDFCreator is that ? - I know there's two (at least) - could you mean the one available via SourceForge tellme

Short info: http://www.donationcoder....rum/index.php?topic=18207

I think it would be nice to give 5 licences to "May reviewers" (randomly selected). That way DC can gain an information about good software and maybe break someone's laziness.

The rest of them are up to mouser's decision / ideas.

sounds great thumbs up

It would be the best to give licences to people who participate here a little bit more. That is why it could be the best for you to take your time and write review of your favourite software. It doesn't mean another TC description.

You are free to write about almost anything. If you think you are using excellent tool with nice features... and you are sure someone else can find it useful, then write about it. It is "May offer" so you have about three weeks to do so. I think there is plenty of time even for lazy people Wink

so, is that official then fenix? (competition)
would probably be good to start a new thread to announce it

2) While selecting the modifiers and key groups before scanning allows you to scan for less shortcuts, checking everything didn't seem to take that long.  It might be more useful if you just scanned for everything and then allowed the user to filter the results based on selected modifiers and key groups.

in the panel on the left it would be good to have an 'All' tick-box as well as the 'None' one

5283  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Am I missing something obvious? How do you paste??? on: May 05, 2009, 05:06:03 PM
I've had problems and am having them again unfortunately, with pasting in apps that are html(?) or have to do with html -
browsers, Evernote.
If you do only have the problem occasionally you can do a simple Ctrl+V paste after the unsuccessful paste and your selection will be pasted - obviously this not a solution if it's happeneing so much (is 90% a realistic or an exasperated estimate!?)

I'd say I'm having the problem less than 10% of the time
Do you get any error messages?

It's really nice to be able to see which keys are available - very convenient for planning hotkeys thumbs up

No idea who's using a lot of those keys undecided afraid to try them out, god knows what would happen ... smiley

What exactly does it do? Wink

I'm not fully sure myself but these might help:-
It took me a while to get the significance of the fact that this is a data warehouse app, not an indexer.  When you import into the app, it copies the files into the application- not just indexing it in place.  So if you import 300GB into it, it will take 300GB of space for the DB.  I don't think this is the app for everyone for that reason- if you'd prefer to manage your files yourself, then it won't really fit your paradigm.  But I was tiring of moving my documents around my HD to organize them, and this way I don't have to- I set up whatever kind of view I want, and the document stays in the database.

I have Benubird Pro and have been using it for a couple of months.   Initially, I had trouble figuring it out but, after half an hour or so of tinkering with it, I got the hang of it on a basic level.  I have yet to plumb all its usages.  The tagging component is good in that you can impute whatever pertinent information in the property field resulting in swift searches.  You can access executive files as well.  You can add new files from the dialogue box also.  There are collection, sub-collection and smart collections for which files are made more quickly accessible.  I haven't as yet utilized all its' features but what I have learnt how to do with this program is good.  Best of all for novices like myself it's literally stupid proof.  I have tried similiar applications and for me this was the most comprehensive.

thanks Ethyar Wink

I'm confused by #6 - you talk about the UK "assisting" ISPs to protect data and then the article is about bills in the US "to protect federal networks and electric power grids" ?
5291  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: BenuBird Pro is now freeware! on: May 02, 2009, 05:36:23 PM
from the above link
Therefore, we’ve made some small changes to Benubird such as in-built PDF Preview, moveable repository/library and PDF metadata to file metadata syncing.  And whilst we work behind-the-scenes on bolting on an even greater range of PDF features and options, we’re making the current version freeware.
...

BTW — don’t worry, if you’re a paid-for-customer of the original Benubird Pro, we appreciate your support and we’re going to be offering you a free-upgrade to the commercial Benubird PDF Pro upon release.

Is there any license restriction against XnView?

from the download page
XnView & NConvert are provided as Freeware for private non-commercial, educational use and
non-profit organization. Commercial use is not authorized without agreement or ordering
could be worth a shot just to ask?
5293  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any freeware alternatives to Faststone MaxView? on: May 01, 2009, 05:19:33 PM
to me some of the most important things in a viewer are that you can
  • easily zoom, and
  • easily zoom into a selected area

ArtSee doesnt seem to allow one to zoom into a selected area (?)
It's a very stylish viewer, designery even .. at times this distracts form what it's supposed to do -
I'm talking about the way it fades or changes from one image to the next - the way it does this varies from one image to the next and can be distracting I find. I like the way it zooms out - it makes image smaller but keeps the original image in the back - if you keep reducing image you get more and more layers of images reducing in size. Again, this might be distracting at times, but as I say, I like it.
I notice it says "Free for personal use" on the about page ... (there's also a donate button there)
Maybe I should contact the author and/or donate (I'll be keeping it)

Imagine:
I couldnt install it but the zip version is portable so that works okay
It doesnt seem to allow one to zoom into a selected area either (?)

Btw http://www.blockposters.com/ this is excactly what I'm looking for, but 1mb is way to small for my poster file (20mb)

what do you mean - is there a limit on upload?

EDIT/
they always print it very small dont they!

Maximum filesize is 1 megabyte

I think Swift PDF does the opposite (nice find though Thmbsup) to what Coeluh's looking for (it combines as opposed to splitting)

Coeluh
my only idea is maybe not so quick, but definitely dirty smiley-
  • Open jpeg in image editor
  • use guidelines to mark out A4 (or A3) size sections - select each individual section, copy and paste to new file.
  • Save as/print to - PDF

or if you want to enlarge image
mark out e.g. A5 size sections, create new file/PDF, print at A4 (or A3) size using page-scaling in print dialogue box

Join up your prints

I installed Imagine last year - just looking I see it's a version from 2006 huh
 - there was lots I liked but I stopped using it cause zoom was very awkward

I see it's been updated, might try it again

If you look at the thread with DiskTune, you find the possible explanation .. most of these softwares are doing all their actual defragging (copying and moving of files) using the same Windows API.  This is also discussed on the MyDefrag page.

also discussed in this and following couple of posts
No defragger can actually specify physical placement of the files on the platter. ...

I keep waiting version after version after version, but it's never there.  I hate how software people keep adding fancy new features to programs and never pay attention to minor little tweaks.
hear hear -
I really think that that's how most users think.
But very few bigger software companies understand, unfortunately (and often the tweaks arent even so minor..)

I was going to say Irfanview...but that is only free for home use also.

have you looked at wanted: alternative to FastStone Image Viewer
as to what is suitable for commercial use - that can be pretty difficult to find out!

Maybe ArtSee from that thread?
