She got amazingly far -- a huge accomplishment.
I feel whenever someone i know participates in something like this is, the real accomplishment is simply putting yourself out there and taking a chance.  Not an easy thing to do. Surely that's a real victory.
Bravo to her.

Website Watcher has always been my favorite.  It is a desktop app designed primarily for interactive use though.  For simply emailing you when a website changes yuo might have good luck with one of the online services.  But Website Watcher is worth a try as it is one of those really great tools.  There are some discussions of this kind of software on the forum:

I mentioned the act to my sister's family (with whom i am staying this week); they all remembered it instantly and loved it -- we will be watching and voting tonight.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Snap Circuits - Good electronic construction kit gift for young kids (8-10yrs) on: August 26, 2014, 08:42:17 AM
I had a kit like this when i was a kid, but it was much less forgiving, was much more difficult to tear down, and required much more manual dexterity.
Today I want to recommend a kit I got for my 10yr old niece that manages to capture the same spirit, but is much more forgiving and easy to use.

The kit is part of a series called "Snap Circuit": http://www.snapcircuits.net/

[attach=1]

The one I got my niece was focused on alternative energy.
Their top-of-the-line general purpose kit is like $90, but they have starter kits for as low as $25.

I highly recommend these for young kids who you want to introduce to the fun of making stuff.

There are more advanced kinds of electronics construction kits for older kids who might want more of a challenge, like this one, which uses wires: http://www.amazon.com/Ele...ning-Center/dp/B0035XSZDI

But the Snap Circuits I am posting about have the advantage of being very resistant to breakage and much easier to connect according to instructions, so they are better for younger hands.
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Weird issue with computer: Volume spontaneously going to 100% at random on: August 26, 2014, 07:12:30 AM
Hi folks.. I'm having a strange problem that I can't track down.

Recently my computer's volume has been jumping to 100% spontaneously.
I set it to some minimal volume, and then at some point (usually overnight) everything is super loud and i check it and the volume is back at 100%.

I'm thinking it must be some program doing it, but i can't figure out what.  Another alternative is a stuck key, but the random timing makes me think not.

Any ideas?

Thanks for posting about that.. it does seem like it would be a natural next step for someone to make a gui tool that uses this commandline utility.
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: August 25, 2014, 08:33:41 AM
That is just awesome to hear.  I think martin really summed it up well in his review:
"Recommendation
If you want a lightweight program that provides you with excellent forecasts and all the information you can possibly want, then sWeather is the first of this list that you should take for a test ride.
While it may be too bare bones for some, it makes up for that with low memory usage and being portable."

Weather app's can get really elaborate (and often beautiful), but many of us are interested in something lightweight, clean, efficient, ELEGANT, and free of ads, and sWeather just rocks for that.

Congratulations, skwire  thumbs up

if you want to delete all, exit CHS, then delete the Database\ subdirectory in the CHS configuration directory (users/documents/donationcoder/ClipboardHelpAndSpell/Database or something like that).
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: How to reset clip ID number? on: August 24, 2014, 04:52:23 PM
not an option i'm afraid -- it's more like an internal database index # that will never decrease.

I played it a few days ago with a couple other people. Wanted to love it, thought I would love it.  Left me a little flat.
I liked the story elements but it dragged on a bit and didn't seem like there were two many interesting choices.
I'll probably give it away to someone on DC who wants to try it.

Ricky Royal has a great board game channel; I watch him play/teach board games all the time.
See this thread for more good youtube board game channels.

If you commit to always using one of those heavy duty file managers you mention, they may have their own way of leaving notes or tagging files that will display them differently within that program.
