126  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Scan Image File Saving to PDF without also creating image file on: April 09, 2015, 02:27:42 PM
I think Iain's comments are worth considering -- as the author of Screenshot Captor, I am quite proud of it's scanning features, but still if your only use of it is to help with scanning, and you have no interest in manipulating the images afterwards using SC tools, then perhaps specialized scanner software is the way to go.
127  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR as bookmark manager? on: April 09, 2015, 11:36:52 AM
The special #filecontents command might be useful to you -- it will let you specify the list of items to search through in a simple text file, so you can make a simple alias and then edit your standalone text file with your bookmark urls.
See the tutorial here: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=17270.0 (and maybe this thread as well).

I did at one point make a firefox bookmark searcher plugin, but it's harder to use now that firefox changed their bookmark storage format (http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=7919.0)

That's an interesting question.. Right now there is currently no way to do that -- mainly because SC can't view PDF files so it really wants to save a copy in a file format it can understand.
Let me give a little more thought to this, but I would encourage you to consider whether it might be something you could live with, and just occasionally delete the screenshot files..
129  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Password problem on: April 08, 2015, 09:41:59 PM
hmm.. it should work on the originating program that you copy from, but i see now the problem -- hotkeyz is doing that actual pasting into your target program, so when CHS checks to see where the clip came from, it's getting fooled into thinking its from metapad instead of hotkeyz, since the current window is in metapad..  no easy solution i'm afraid..

You could toggle CHS on an off from the system tray -- and i could add a hotkey to quickly do that.. that might be next best solution..

Or perhaps hotkeyz (or another similar program) could be configured to use the security flag when copying info to the clipboard, which would solve the problem as well.
130  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Password problem on: April 08, 2015, 08:52:59 PM
You can tell CHS to ignore capturing clips from certain applications.. might that help?  (it's on the Capture Options tab).
In addition, by default CHS knows not to copy clips maintained by password tools that properly mark sensitive information when copying it to the clipboard -- if you haven't tried one of those tools, I highly recommend them (KeePass is one good free one).

The script we used for the member map broke when google changed something in their api, and i took it offline until I have time to update it or install a new member map script.

No offense taken -- takes a lot more than that to offend me!
I just wanted to set the record straight about who came first (though clearly such self-teaching forums surely existed in different forms for decades).

why reinvent the wheel?

In the current day, those sites (and others) are far superior places to learn coding than on the dc coding school.

However, when you ask "why reinvent the wheel", you have to realize that the DC programming school actually FAR predates all of those sites you mention -- it was actually started years before the main donationcoder.com website was started in 2005.

So, a more appropriate question might be, "now that dedicated, polished, well funded programming schools have become established, is there still a reason to keep hosting our own..", but at least give us credit for being there first.

Answers to #1 and #2 and #3 are all yes, but you must post in the top level section of the programming language in question.  Any posts made in an assignment-specific board will not be visible to others.

140  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: You can now run Android apps on a Mac or PC with Google Chrome on: April 04, 2015, 10:02:49 AM
Whatever my thoughts on google, this is still a very interesting development..

I am quite skeptical about the widespread value of running android apps on the desktop, because android apps are designed for a small device with no keyboard and mouse -- resulting in a user interface very well suited for a small mobile touchscreen, but poorly suited to take advantage of desktop features.

However, there will surely be some use cases where being able to run a mobile app on the desktop will be a real win -- apps where performance and usability is not essential, but where simply being able to access the app will outweigh any deficiencies in the experience.

Miles, I had the same reaction -- it's not quite as bad as saying "We refuse to download this software because it will probably give you cancer", but you can see where we are going -- scaring people away from downloading stuff made outside of their channels.
The intentions in this case may be good -- to keep people from installing malware -- but independent developers are going to suffer.

Those of you who have read my posts on Google know that I view the company quite suspiciously.. They are masters of publicity and self-promotion and always find ways to get their hands into everything..  Often in roundabout ways like a spider that weaves a trap you don't realize you are in until it's too late.  Which is not to say that the stuff they create isn't often quite excellent and useful.

So here's a predictable, and yet still intriguing, new way of extending google tentacles, the ability to run Android apps on windows using the Chrome Web Browser.

Google’s convergence of Chrome and Android is taking a big step forward this week. After launching a limited App Runtime for Chrome (ARC) back in September, Google is expanding its beta project to allow Android apps to run on Windows, OS X, and Linux. It’s an early experiment designed primarily for developers, but anyone can now download an APK of an existing Android app and launch it on a Windows / Linux PC, Mac, or Chromebook.

There are a bunch of serious academic tools for creating bibliographies -- many specialized for MS Word.
The most well known is EndNote, but there are free options as well.

Here's a good wikipedia page comparing some: http://en.wikipedia.org/w...rence_management_software

149  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Request : When editing an Alias a button to test executing the Alias. on: April 01, 2015, 05:21:10 PM
not a bad idea..
however, i think the most important thing to need to test is the regex, and if you look carefully there is a place to test the regex in the alias edit dialog.

To clarify -- I cannot afford (mentally or monetarily) to take on work at those kinds of rates smiley
The idea I was proposing was like a raffle, so that if many people donate, only one would win a prize of having their custom app created.
But i think the main problem with this is pretty real -- that  very few people would care about or have need for this "prize".
