Thank you for sharing that, Stephen66515. My motto (which my wife fortunately agrees with) is: love me, love my dog.

Love your pets like they love you, and never dismiss them as "Just an animal" ... They are part of our families and part of our lives...and if you have committed to getting a pet, you should treat them as good as you would a child.

Damn Straight!

ABSOLUTELY!!!

If we do get space, i dont know how to access it. I cant find anything in my profile settings. I guess i could just keep updating here, but i just need to keep track of what thread i posted on to update that file each time. I should really build in an update function into my software.

You could use DC's very own "DCUpdater" for that smiley

No,
That is just ... epic. Will it make the next newsletter?  Grin

lol which version did you prefer?



Anybody else wrote any stories about Cody? - Would love to read them!

I'll savor both versions more over the weekend!

However, I have not written any stories about Cody because I don't yet see the License To Make Derivative Works from Mouser!

(And yes, this really is how bad these laws are trying to make the Copyright situation, and No, there is no such thing as "between friends" anymore! Sad      )

Cody and Mouser are both DonationCoder names.  All official DonationCoder related things are DonationWare.  If you have donated to the site, you are free to contribute (but not profit from) all its glory.

Something like that might work cheesy

1387  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Short Cody Story on: May 04, 2012, 07:37:30 AM
 It all started when our (former porn) star, Cody, woke up in a lemur-infested moor. It was the seventh time it had happened. Feeling abundantly stunned, Cody groped a potato, thinking it would make him feel better (but as usual, it did not). Unaware of the bleakness of existence, he realized that his beloved Gold Coins was missing!  Immediately he called his former lay, Mouser. Cody had known Mouser for (plus or minus) 550,000 years, the majority of which were sassy ones.  Mouser was unique. He was charismatic though sometimes a little... stupid. Cody called him anyway, for the situation was urgent.

   Mouser picked up to a very sad Cody. Mouser calmly assured him that most 3-legged wallabies yawn before mating, yet disease-carrying chipmunks usually earnestly sneeze *after* mating. He had no idea what that meant; he was only concerned with distracting Cody.  Why was Mouser trying to distract Cody?  Because he had snuck out from Cody's with the Gold Coins only nine days prior.  It was a curious little Gold Coins... how could he resist?

   It didn't take long before Cody got back to the subject at hand: his Gold Coins. Mouser cringed. Relunctantly, Mouser invited him over, assuring him they'd find the Gold Coins. Cody grabbed his hammock and disembarked immediately. After hanging up the phone, Mouser realized that he was in trouble. He had to find a place to hide the Gold Coins and he had to do it deftly. He figured that if Cody took the deliciously practical 4-door, he had take at least four minutes before Cody would get there.  But if he took the Nest?  Then Mouser would be really screwed.

   Before he could come up with any reasonable ideas, Mouser was interrupted by five insensitive Penguins that were lured by his Gold Coins. Mouser yawned; 'Not again', he thought. Feeling puzzled, he randomly reached for his carrot and thoughtfully attacked every last one of them. Apparently this was an adequate deterrent--the discouraged critters began to scurry back toward the haunted thicket, squealing with discontent. He exhaled with relief.  That's when he heard the Nest rolling up.  It was Cody.

----o0o----

   As he pulled up, he felt a sense of urgency. He had had to make an unscheduled stop at Sears to pick up a 12-pack of ripened avocados, so he knew he was running late.  With a apt leap, Cody was out of the Nest and went explosively jaunting toward Mouser's front door.  Meanwhile inside,  Mouser was panicking.  Not thinking, he tossed the Gold Coins into a box of ninja stars and then slid the box behind his rhinocerus. Mouser was worried but at least the Gold Coins was concealed.  The doorbell rang.

   'Come in,' Mouser wildly purred.  With a mighty push, Cody opened the door.  'Sorry for being late, but I was being chased by some clueless coke fiend in a best-in-its-so-called-'class' sedan,' he lied.  'It's fine,' Mouser assured him. Cody took a seat wonderfully far from where Mouser had hidden the Gold Coins. Mouser cringed trying unsuccessfully to hide his nervousness.  'Uhh, can I get you anything?' he blurted.  But Cody was distracted. A few unsatisfying minutes later, Mouser noticed a annoying look on Cody's face. Cody slowly opened his mouth to speak.

   '...What's that smell?'

   Mouser felt a stabbing pain in his taint when Cody asked this.  In a moment of disbelief, he realized that he had hidden the Gold Coins right by his oscillating fan. 'Wh-what?  I don't smell anything..!'  A lie.  A selfish look started to form on Cody's face. He turned to notice a box that seemed clearly out of place. 'Th-th-those are just my grandma's dull pencils from when she used to have pet long-haired sea monkeys.  She, uh...dropped 'em by here earlier'. Cody nodded with fake acknowledgement...then, before Mouser could react, Cody aptly lunged toward the box and opened it.  The Gold Coins was plainly in view.

   Cody stared at Mouser for what what must've been three microseconds. A few freaknasty minutes later, Mouser groped exotically in Cody's direction, clearly desperate. Cody grabbed the Gold Coins and bolted for the door.  It was locked. Mouser let out a eccentric chuckle. 'If only you hadn't been so protective of that thing, none of this would have happened, Cody,' he rebuked. Mouser always had been a little stupid, so Cody knew that reconciliation was not an option; he needed to escape before Mouser did something crazy, like... start chucking dull pencils at him or something. Just as zero people expected he gripped his Gold Coins tightly and made a dash toward the window, diving headlong through the glass panels.

   Mouser looked on, blankly. 'What the hell?  That seemed excessive.  The other door was open, you know.' Silence from Cody. 'And to think, I varnished that window frame three days ago...it never ends!' Suddenly he felt a tinge of concern for Cody. 'Oh.  You ..okay?' Still silence. Mouser walked over to the window and looked down. Cody was gone.

----o0o----

   Just yonder, Cody was struggling to make his way through the disease-infested jungle behind Mouser's place. Cody had severely hurt his double chin during the window incident, and was starting to lose strength.  Another pack of feral Penguins suddenly appeared, having caught wind of the Gold Coins.  One by one they latched on to Cody.  Already weakened from his injury, Cody yielded to the furry onslaught and collapsed.  The last thing he saw before losing consciousness was a buzzing horde of Penguins running off with his Gold Coins.

   But then God came down with His clever smile and restored Cody's Gold Coins. Feeling relieved, God smote the Penguins for their injustice.  Then He got in His gas-guzzling, ecology-destroying, tankish SUV and sputtered away with the fortitude of  half a million disease-carrying chipmunks running from a enormous pack of spotted wolf hamsters. Cody tripped with joy when he saw this. His Gold Coins was safe. It was a good thing, too, because in four minutes his favorite TV show,  The Office, was going to come on (followed immediately by 'When 3-legged wallabies meet weapon of mass destruction'). Cody was jubilant. And so, everyone except Mouser and a few gun-toting long-haired sea monkeys lived blissfully happy, forever after.

(Exaggerated Copyright Rhetoric).

"If you wanted to try out our games, play the Demos we offer. That is our limited versions which we offer to establish if you like the basic concepts enough to buy the game. If we choose not to offer a demo, that is because we have made the business decision not to. You say that you like to download the entire version of a game to 'decide if you want to buy it'. However, that is a pure violation of copyright law. Downloading unauthorized copies of copyrighted material is illegal, and your subsequent purchase decisions are irrelevant. So therefore we are happy that you no longer download our copyrighted materials from the Pirate Bay, and removing you from the download stream justifies our actions. "

Imagine how much money I am going to be saving each year due to this!  Grin - Last year alone I spent around £2000 on software I had downloaded torrents of and decided the developers had done a good enough job to warrant my spending.
1389  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Anybody In Favour of the blocking of PirateBay, Please Read on: May 03, 2012, 03:53:32 PM
Firstly, let me just say, that it is because of you that I will no longer be supporting ANY developer (Except DonationWare here on DonationCoder).

The reason I paid for software, games, music, videos, and anything else digital for that matter, was because I had the ability to be able to download the entire version of it, for free, with no obligation, first.

Now that isn't possible (Although it is, and I can actually still access PirateBay via VPS) I have no means of knowing if something is worth my money.

Who, realistically, wants to spend £50 on a game, which, could end up being absolute shit?  -  Not like you can trade in games you buy from Steam, or any other digital store tbh...so its dead money, and, in this economy, one cannot simply waste that amount of money.

A random but good example of this, is a recent games purchase I made.  I had downloaded a random game called "Farming Simulator 2011" just for the sheer hell of it, however, the pirated version of this only allowed me to play offline...long story short, is, I wanted to play this online, so...I purchased the game AND a second copy to gift to a friend...Bearing in mind, there is no chance in hell I would have even considered buying a SINGLE copy of this game, let-alone TWO copies before I found it to be quite good for a boredom cure.

So, to sum up this short post...Take away my piracy, I no longer buy your stuff smiley

**edit**

For those unfamiliar, PirateBay is now blocked in the UK at an ISP level.
1390  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Apple Rejecting Apps That Use Dropbox on: May 02, 2012, 05:12:42 PM
But there is a viable competition.
Apple has a dominant market position in only the market for "Apple products". Not in smartphones, not in laptops, not in desktops, and given market trends, not in tablets (at least not for long).
Do you really want government to intervene because Apple has a monopoly in producing iphones or ipads?
Apple is no more dominant in any product category than General Motors is dominant in cars.
But General Motors has a dominant market position in making Cadillacs. Should government intervene to foster competition?

When they are blocking things purely because users might signup for an alternative service...yes...Apple must die.  That is my one and only opinion on this, nobody (And you can ask anybody on DC who knows me) will EVER change my mind about apple.
1391  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Apple Rejecting Apps That Use Dropbox on: May 02, 2012, 04:59:34 PM
Mine may be a technically ignorant rant but I don't see how Apple has a dominant position in any market. (OK, yes maybe in the tablets market, but it should be eroding fast, now that competition is really churning out android tablets).

Asking government intervene on Apple's policies is like saying "Daddy, Mike won't let me play with his ball."

The better (and more dignified) stance would be telling Apple (or Mike for that matter), take the gadget (or the ball), and use it for a "thoroughly personal" function.

There are other gadgets (and balls) you know.

The government CAN interfere when you call "Anti-competition" laws into play...no company can completely lock itself out like this without governments and laws getting involved...its getting fucking stupid now, and I cannot wait to laugh in the faces of people with hardware that will no longer work, because its made by Apple who will get shut down very quickly.

Just found this on Facebook, thought it worth the share...

Quote
When I was a puppy I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child and despite a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I was "bad," you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?" - but then you'd relent and roll me over for a belly rub.

 My house training took a little longer than expected, because you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together. I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed, listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs," you said), and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

 Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently, comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you about bad decisions, and romped with glee at your homecomings, and when you fell in love.

 She, now your wife, is not a "dog person" - still I welcomed her into our home, tried to show her affection, and obeyed her. I was happy because you were happy. Then the human babies came along and I shared your excitement. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them, too. Only she and you worried that I might hurt them, and I spent most of my time banished to another room, or to a dog crate. Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a "prisoner of love."

 As they began to grow, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my ears and gave me kisses on my nose. I loved everything about them, especially their touch - because your touch was now so infrequent - and I would have defended them with my life if need be.

 I would sneak into their beds and listen to their worries and secret dreams. Together we waited for the sound of your car in the driveway. There had been a time, when others asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your wallet and told them stories about me. These past few years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I had gone from being your dog to "just a dog," and you resented every expenditure on my behalf.

 Now you have a new career opportunity in another city and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your "family," but there was a time when I was your only family.

 I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness. You filled out the paperwork and said "I know you will find a good home for her." They shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog or cat, even one with "papers."

 You had to pry your son's fingers loose from my collar as he screamed "No, Daddy! Please don't let them take my dog!" And I worried for him and what lessons you had just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and responsibility, and about respect for all life. You gave me a goodbye pat on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and leash with you. You had a deadline to meet and now I have one, too.

 After you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming move months ago and made no attempt to find me another good home. They shook their heads and asked "How could you?"

 They are as attentive to us here in the shelter as their busy schedules allow. They feed us, of course, but I lost my appetite days ago. At first, whenever anyone passed my pen, I rushed to the front, hoping it was you - that you had changed your mind - that this was all a bad dream...or I hoped it would at least be someone who cared, anyone who might save me. When I realized I could not compete with the frolicking for attention of happy puppies, oblivious to their own fate, I retreated to a far corner and waited.

 I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of the day and I padded along the aisle after her to a separate room. A blissfully quiet room. She placed me on the table, rubbed my ears and told me not to worry. My heart pounded in anticipation of what was to come, but there was also a sense of relief. The prisoner of love had run out of days. As is my nature, I was more concerned about her. The burden which she bears weighs heavily on her and I know that, the same way I knew your every mood.

 She gently placed a tourniquet around my foreleg as a tear ran down her cheek. I licked her hand in the same way I used to comfort you so many years ago. She expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. As I felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay down sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured "How could you?"

 Perhaps because she understood my dogspeak, she said "I'm so sorry." She hugged me and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I went to a better place, where I wouldn't be ignored or abused or abandoned, or have to fend for myself - a place of love and light so very different from this earthly place. With my last bit of energy, I tried to convey to her with a thump of my tail that my "How could you?" was not meant for her. It was you, My Beloved Master, I was thinking of. I will think of you and wait for you


The moral of the story...

Love your pets like they love you, and never dismiss them as "Just an animal" ... They are part of our families and part of our lives...and if you have committed to getting a pet, you should treat them as good as you would a child.

"All it takes" to avoid the "Cheap Chinese Crap" image is some smart advertising, maybe using words like "old time quality at old time prices", calling on the days when everything was made better or such.

When it comes to linux support, that is something I cannot do, due to my complete lack of understanding on how to do even the most basic task in any distro lol

Support in the store will come wish a 'If we can't fix it, we won't charge you a penny' type view, and if we can fix it, we will do, for the least amount of money possible, without bankrupting ourselves.

I am trying to stick away from 'Support' based business due to the sheer knowledge I would have to have.  We will be providing in-store support, and full returns/refunds policies (We aim to only sell NEW products, so will always have a manufacturer warranty to fall back on)

Our customers, first and foremost, will be the local community, who, currently pay, WAY more than they need to be doing, for the ability to be able to go in store and purchase (A lot of people in my area are still against online purchasing) - Through basic research (Past and recent needs to visit local computer stores) I know full well, I can sell products they sell, for a LOT less, and still turn a pretty decent profit. (The cheapest you can buy a stick of 2GB DDR3 RAM here in shops, is about £25...which...is ridiculous!)

On another note, when I say 'Low Budget' I do not want that to be mixed up with 'We supply crappy Chinese imports with odd brand names you will find no support for" - When we say 'Low Budget' we simply mean, if you want something good, but don't have a big budget (Who does these days?!) then we will be able to offer you KNOWN brands (nvidea, gigabyte, OCZ, Kingston etc...) for a fraction of what you are able to buy them elsewhere (OFFLINE - LOCALLY) - I have no intention, and no possible way to undercut online stores that buy all their stock in quantities of 1000+ per item (Which...I COULD do, but...really...where would I store it all...and it would also mean I have a HUGE amount of "Dead Stock" as offline selling will never reach the quantity of sales that an online distributor can handle)

We will also ALWAYS provide after-sales support either in the store, or over the phone (Obviously depending on what the question is...if somebody says something like "How do I connect to a porn website on this thing", then, I won't feel very inclined to help (Although, that will basically mean your guaranteed to have to clean that computer of who knows how many viruses, which, yeah, I could charge for) - Again though, if they called up asking things like "How do I get online" or something reasonable, then yeah, I would be more than happy to provide that information for nothing (At the end of the day, it doesn't cost me anything to answer a question if they called me).

Where we can reasonably NOT charge a customer, we will do exactly that.

I more than understand the implications and complications of doing everything I want to do with this business, but...why start with a "Charge stupid sums, just so I have to sell less to cover the most basic costs" - I would much rather people know I am low priced, reliable, and fair...because...at the end of the day...all that will get me good 'Word of Mouth' advertising, which, almost always leads to more customers.

Stephen, did you pick the "ad copy" for the perks, or is that standard from Indiegogo? "Free Gift", "Free gift of a higher value", and "Amazing gift"? What are those?

And what are the specs and prices of a "Low Budget PC"? See my adventures with Linux vs Drivers over on the other thread. Turns out, some of the specs of that box were on the casing doubling as sales copy.

Survey says:
AMD Sempron 3400+
NVidia GeForce 6150 LE
512 Megs Ram
120 GB HD
2007 price about $350 with sales floor discounts from Best Buy.

Business plan wise I'd love to know what you will be able to do that Best Buy/your big chain can't.


By Low Budget, I am trying to figure out how to let people know that this doesn't actually mean "We build low spec only" - We literally mean, we will build to the best spec we can, for as little money as possible (just enough profit to pay the bills)

For Example - We could build the following system, for around £300 GBP (Inc VAT) - No OS (Or a OS with no COA {30 Day Trial thing})

AM3 Soc Motherboard - mATX Form - 6 Channel Audio - VGA
AMD Athlon II X4 640 Socket AM3 3GHz 2MB L2 Cache
8GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM  (2x 4GB)   
ATI Radeon HD3000 Graphics, On Board Graphic Max. Memory Share Up to 512 MB
450W PSU   
DVD R+RW     
500GB 3GB/s SATA HDD  (OR) OCZ 60GB SSD
Case Included

Obviously that is just an example (not something we actually stock, but could if requested)

Anybody think £300GBP is overpriced for that?

One other thing that I thought of that you want to keep in mind- if the funding doesn't reach your goal in an open-ended funding drive, the assumption is that you have the funds to make it succeed- so you still have to fulfill the rewards for people that donated.  Something else to keep in mind.

Yes, this is one thing I considered, and is not a huge problem as finding the funding if this fails, shouldn't be too much hassle smiley I figured it was worth experimenting with this, and if it works, all the better  cheesy

hehe Thanks for all the well wishes and constructive criticism guys.

On the ideas given, I shall certainly try implement some of them as they are things I didn't really think about, so certainly some food for thought.

Somebody asked about perks, they are all what I wrote, nothing there is stock smiley
