Great  thumbs up

If you change the setting and then manually exit SC, and then restart SC is the option remembered?

And are other settings saved normally?

You can ignore this advice -- I have added a feature on the new board that will let you view your old posts in the My Personal Area section.

good idea.
5  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Backup any private posts you want to keep from the "My Personal Area" section on: August 03, 2015, 11:52:22 AM
On this forum, we created a special forum section called "My Personal Area" where people could write posts that only they could see.

It has served as a way for people to make "draft" posts, etc.

That section will not be migrated to the new forum because it involves too much ugly hard-to-maintain hacking of the forum codebase.

I will try to add some kind of different draft-post functionality, but the My Personal Area posts will *NOT* migrate.

So please backup any that you have made that you want to keep.


Actually cancel this request -- i should be able to make it possible for users to see their own previous posts in the My Personal Area section, though not add new ones.

Mafia 3 has been anounced! Yay!
Here's someone talking about how Mafia2 gets a bad reap and how he hopes they don't listen too hard to the people saying that the new one has to have big changes:
http://www.gamesradar.com...ain-its-brilliant-quirks/

This guy nails that game and talks about why Mafia2 was so special.  If you're on the fence I encourage you to read it.  Mafia 2 is one of my favorite games I've played.
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Startups and the Big Lie on: August 02, 2015, 12:02:24 AM
Often it feels to me like economic success is one big pyramid scheme... Here's an article about the central role lying plays in the startup model where companies raise billions based on a mirage of get-rich-quick success they create.

Quote
They have little choice. Funding is contingent on growth, but that growth can only happen if no one really understands the funding situation. Founders have to tell the lie – that everything is fine, that a feature is going to launch even though the engineer for that feature hasn’t been hired yet, that payroll will run even though the VC dollars are still nowhere on the horizon.

Lying is a requisite and daily part of being a founder, the grease that keeps the startup flywheel running.

Here's a new board (card) game mini-review, for Boss Monster:

[attach=1]

https://boardgamegeek.com...ungeon-building-card-game

Lately i've played a bunch of a card game called Boss Monster (i've only played two-player).  It feels a little bit like Star Realms -- the images and cards are fun to look at and read.
Each player builds a dungeon and tries to kill heroes that visit them.
It plays really fast and fun, with a good amount of solitaire feel but also plenty of take-that and press your luck elements.

There's a lot of luck but a ton of strategy.  Most of all it's *FUN* as heck.

I would say however that while the basic rules are simple, there are a fair number of non-obvious specific card rules and interactions on cards that can be confusing -- this isn't a game for young kids who aren't quite sophisticated in terms of planning out multiple interactions.

Really great game, highly recommended (there are expansions too).

a nice simple text editor -- maybe one of those that is designed to hide other stuff so you can just focus on writing?

yes, https will be available before we go live. it's not available on the TEST site yet though.

40hz it is WONDERFUL to see you. Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

We are really close to being able to go live with the new forum.  I hope you folks like it!
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Whole Room Watercooling on: July 31, 2015, 07:58:02 PM
Heh yeah. Though to be fair a 7 part video project series named "Just get an AC and some extension cables and be done with it" might be less fun to watch on Youtube

yeah and if they did that what would they do with the extra $5,000 of money, 200 hours, of time they would have saved.  plus who wants to live in a nice climate controlled room anyway.
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Custom Document Opener on: July 31, 2015, 02:17:55 PM
Somehow i missed this post originally... I will fix it so custom document opener can be specified locally.  I'll try to get an update out in the next week.
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Some Feature Requests & Food For Thought (if your brain is on a diet!) on: July 31, 2015, 02:06:02 AM
It's always nice to hear from folks using my software and to hear feature requests -- sometimes i have to hear the same request from a few different people before it clicks.

And please excuse my slowness in replying and implementing -- i've spent the last 3-4 weeks from morning to night working on upgrading the forum software here (just about done!), so i've been slow in attending to my apps.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How chimpanzees helped inspire the Windows start menu on: July 31, 2015, 01:37:25 AM
And here's a nice wikipedia page on the Start Menu which has some history:

i'm pretty sure i fixed the complaint about the nag reminder for the portable version..

Just a note: The DcUpdater is not for portable use.
All of my applications will do automatic update checking on their own now, but if an update is found they will open the webpage and let you download and update yourself.
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Caption jpg files on: July 30, 2015, 04:26:36 PM
i can't really say that there is one -- im just used to having irfanview for my default app to open an image file when i double-click it from windows explorer.  i suppose i should try using xnview to see how it compares.

When double clicking to view images in explorer, my #1 need is speed, followed by good default scaling options, and only-once instance even if i click multiple files.

So I have a beta version of the new forum online on a server graciously provided by DC member PhilB.
It's a complete working forum with all accounts and posts from main DC forum as of July 27 or so.

If anyone wants to get a sneak peak at the new look and feel, try it and help look for bugs, and request features, just message me (or mail me mouser@donationcoder.com) and i will provide the url.
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS is unusable on High DPI Screens on: July 29, 2015, 07:35:47 PM
yep, let me see what i can do about this -- i think i can fix it.
it's come up on another of my apps as well (FARR was it?)
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Caption jpg files on: July 29, 2015, 05:55:07 PM
just another +1 for xnview as an image folder browser.
i still use irfanview when viewing individual files, but when i have to search and browse a large directory tree full of images, xnview is my tool of choice; very nice searching/filtering features.
23  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Caption jpg files on: July 29, 2015, 10:17:10 AM
This absolutely sounds like it should already exist.

A simple easy to use utility that can batch add captions to images, with some flexibility of where to put the caption and set the text based on filename, filedate, etc.

It must exist.. if it doesn't one of us needs to make it quickly.

I do already have some code for adding captions to images and autosizing text for it, etc.  so if we don't find anything good perhaps ill make it.

Yikes, that's crazy.
25  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: help searching word.rtf from farr? on: July 27, 2015, 03:16:51 AM
FARR doesn't search INSIDE files -- you're going to need a different app for that.
There are some good free ones.  Agent Ransack is one i like: https://www.mythicsoft.com/agentransack
