ok i'm going to try to fix this now - it's a bit tricky since the problem doesn't happen for me.

does anyone out there have the problem still (or can make it come back) who can help me test new versions to help figure out when i fix it? (if you can meet in irc channel even better! #donationcoder on efnet).

We're going to do a kernel upgrade for the server today - shouldn't result in more than a few minutes of downtime.
if you can't connect to the server for a bit, now you know why.

ps.
sorry i haven't been posting as much lately - ive been working my heart out on the new micro-donation system (DonationCredits) from morning to night each day.


remember you can always join our chat channel to talk (#donationcoder on efnet):

(if you join the chat channel i'll give you access to the test board so you can get a sneak peek at donationcredits test board).

i've added the latest to the preview page (http://www.donationcoder.com/Contests/banner), really looking nice now toxmox.  the numbers are still not doing it 100% for me, not sure why.

im not understanding this question, can you elaborate?
this might be better off placed in programmers section?

just a note: you guys would make it easier for me to put up the test pages if you named your files:

25936  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Print version with images... on: March 22, 2006, 12:21:06 AM
a very good idea..
please remind me in a week after i finish the donationcredits system and i will try to add it.
25937  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: License Key is Invalid on: March 22, 2006, 12:19:45 AM
thanks for the reports.

ok, clearly i messed something up with license key for last version, though i can't for the life of me figure out what i did - i really didn't touch that part of the program..  ill try to have a new version out in the next couple of days.  i've spend the last 2 weeks working on donationcredits and new forum stuff every waking hour that's why i havent addressed this yet.

regarding smarter about when app is still running in the tray, you are very right. i need to add that to the setup program.
25938  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Do you use a good office chair when programming? on: March 21, 2006, 06:49:54 PM
Anyone want to recommend a reasonably priced office chair for long sessions of programming?
Does it make a difference?  What are your experiences?  My back has been bothering me just a little because i never sit properly.
25939  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Jan/Feb Poll - What Area Should DonationCoder.com Focus on Most in 2006? on: March 21, 2006, 06:25:02 PM
the *intention* of our reviews will not change - to help readers determine which program is best for them.  many reviews seem to just look at one program and say, it's good, great, bad, or look at a few programs and say here they are.

our reviews will continue to be written as an effort to help people figure out which program is BEST, and whether they should make a purchase or use a free program.

however, i think we are going to be less doctrinaire about picking only a SINGLE winner when there is a top tier of close candidates.  if there are a few which are top tier candidates which different users might have different preferences for, we are going to try to reflect this, rather than trying too hard to pick a single winner.

25941  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Samsung unveils 32GB Flash-based HDD killer on: March 21, 2006, 04:18:40 PM
This is surely the future of hard drives..

Quote
Samsung has launched what it reckons its the world's first 32GB NAND Flash-based hard disk drive replacement unit. The company claimed the so-called "solid state disk" can access data three times faster than an HDD can and write files one-and-a-half times more quickly - though we don't know what HDD spec it was comparing its product to.
The SSD is a 2.5in form-factor product that operates at 5V and connects across a 66MHz Ultra DMA parallel ATA bus. Samsung said the unit consumes just five per cent of the energy it takes to run a hard drive.

I fully expect this post to take on a life of its own. So, I’d like to start it with a disclaimer. Peter, Ryan, Jason… if you end up reading this, know that I respect all of you tremendously. I believe you pour your hearts and souls into what you do, and deserve every bit of success that’s come your way. Well, almost every bit. Know that I bear no hard feelings, but the time has come for the truth to come out, and this is my contribution to that end.

For the last nine months or so, I have harbored a dispute with Engadget, and until now I have kept relatively quiet. This is the gist. I believe (I’m convinced beyond doubt, really) the writers at Engadget maintain a blacklist. They will obstinately refuse to credit any story that originates (in the relatively fuzzy meaning that the word “originates” has in the Blogosphere) from one of the sites on the blacklist, often preferring to wait quite some time until the same story pops up elsewhere, and then crediting that non-blacklisted site. Sometimes, they will go to even greater lengths to uphold the ban, stepping out of the realm of the unpleasant and squarely into the realm of the unethical. This has happened recently to DAPreview, and lucky for them, they have proof.

i was referring to the author.
i agree that there is no one approach for all problems, though as an avid oop fan i think most non-trivial programming tasks are well suited to oop methods.

more links:
wikipedia page on object oriented programming: http://en.wikipedia.org/w...ype_instead_of_membership

and wouldn't you know it, our own favorite programming blogger, jeff atwood, has written about the oop hater page:
http://www.codinghorror.c...blog/archives/000200.html
definitely worth a read!

looong philosophical article on oop thinking:

25948  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Thoughts about OOP programming on: March 21, 2006, 06:57:10 AM
i completely and vigorously object to the idea that oop is only for group programming.

the more people you have looking at code the more important it is that it is better modularized, but saying that's the only time to use oop is like saying that a filing strategy helps organize stuff when you work in an office with lots of people, so when you are home you should just throw your papers on the floor randomly.


here is that authors full website against oop for those who didn't read through to the end of his article: http://www.geocities.com/tablizer/oopbad.htm
hmm.. i think this guy had a bad psychological reaction to oop when he was a baby.. maybe his ex-girlfriend was an oop fan.


now there are some more sophisticated attacks of oop than this guys, centering on new programming paradigms like "Aspect Oriented Programming" - http://en.wikipedia.org/w...pect-oriented_programming

25950  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Thoughts about OOP programming on: March 21, 2006, 04:26:26 AM
thought provoking but ultimately extremely unconvincing to me.
i guess part of it might be a style issue, and i'll leave it to someone better at writing (and someone who isn't up to his eyeballs coding the donationcredits system) to dissect it, but really i think it misses all of the important features of object oriented programming.

what people have to realize is that ultimately, all code is compiled down into a very low level language like assembly.

everything else is just stuff on top to help you as a human organize your data and code in a way that makes it easier for you to write and maintain.

to me, over almost two decates, object oriented programming has represented a profoundly positive framework for organizing code and data structures.  it changes the way i plan solutions, conceive of problems, etc.  i can't imagine trying to keep complex programs organized without using it.
