i'll add process master to the list of related programs.
is this a case i wonder of GRAW running as a system process that can't be modified by a normal process.  that would be very strange for a game..

question:
have you tried going to the "Process" tab in the Process Tamer GUI, and setting the Priority dropdown box for GRAW to low-priority? Does it seem to be able to change it there?  Just trying to figure out if the problem is in the rule application or in physically changing the priority..  Maybe I can add some log info to help figure out the problem.

There was a thread here on running ProcessTamer as a service (something planned to be added to the program eventually), that might also solve this.

here's the real problem though:
no matter what we call it *here* -
people don't first download the software from this site.  that's a bit part of the problem.

they download it from software listing sites - fileforum, tucows, softpedia, snapfiles, etc.

none of those sites have a category for donationware.  It's either Shareware or Freeware - those are the only choices.

I like the name communityware (though there is a squatter on the domain name communityware.com).
25932  Other Software / Developer's Corner / The Change Function: Why some technology ventures fail? on: May 16, 2006, 10:48:37 AM

Quote
...
The attractively simple thesis of The Change Function is that most tech-nology ventures fail because tech-nologists manage them. Technologists think their business is the creation of cool technologies loaded with wonderful new features. They think this because they are engineers who thrill to the idea of change. By contrast, Coburn says, "technology is widely hated by its users," because ordinary folk loathe change. Therefore, any new artifact, no matter how much its various features might appeal to technologists, will always be rejected by its intended customers unless "the pain in moving to a new technology is lower than the pain of staying in the status quo."
Or in Pip's geeky formulation:
The Change Function = f (perceived crisis vs. total perceived pain of adoption).

25934  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / new alt.comp.freeware usenet thread with criticism of DonationCoder on: May 16, 2006, 10:25:01 AM
Someone pointed out to me there is a thread on alt.comp.freeware currently debating/criticizing donationcoder.com:

Quote

I'm mentioning it here in case anyone wants to chime in there and add their views, whether supportive of the donationcoder.com approach or expressing similar concerns as those on that thread.

If you do feel like standing up for this site it would be very much appreciated, but please be respectful and courteous and let's show them the kind of respectfullness that this site is all about.  no need to attack anyone and let's recognize that some of the issues they raise are valid ones. But it would be nice if they could hear from some people who know the site from personal experience and can let them know what we are really like  huh

We probably need to do a better job of simplifying the policy on this site; it's something i've been working on steadily, but sometimes it's hard when people say things that aren't true and can scare people away without them even giving our ideas a chance..



(note you can post through that google goups interface with just a quick signup if you aren't already signed up for google groups - i highly recommend you do register if not for this post, for later usenet posting).

ps. this has come up before on alt.comp.freeare in the past and has been discussed on the forum (http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1756.0)

not found a satisfactory cms, but in the progress i came across this really nice wiki comparison page:

try this wizard to find the best wiki for you: http://www.wikimatrix.org/wizard.php

it's just the alt+space then? if you use other hotkeys or break key the problem is not there?
25939  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: completely unjust disregard for 'farr' on: May 16, 2006, 07:39:25 AM
i have an idea..
it may be the history items being refreshed.. especially if he has a long history.

try 2 things:
first, make sure you have the latest version, v1.09.04
http://www.donationcoder....Mouser/findrun/index.html

and then try this, go to options and uncheck "blank search shows files from launch history" just for fun,
see if that speeds it up.

25941  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture window menus with autoscroll on: May 16, 2006, 04:31:22 AM
that's pretty interesting
25942  Other Software / Developer's Corner / The Hunt for the Best CMS on: May 16, 2006, 04:15:20 AM
I go on a hunt for the best CMS once a year.. it feels like i lose a bit of my mind each time.
Still not found anything perfect.

In particular for dc it's daunting because there are conflicting desires.

In the past I have liked Drupal.  Or maybe a wiki cms would be best?  Mambo/Joomla has good integration with smf (forum software we use), TinyPortal is built around smf so that's really appealing.

But then i'm also thinking a static page generation cms using templates would be best for low-cpu usage (having every page access go through a dynamic cms is a big hit on cpu/memory because of database stuff).

And I like having the main site content be in flat files that i can easily edit from home.

But tight forum integration is a must..

And we want a system that provides:
  • good clean organization for website admin to edit files by hand with custom html
  • but ability for other authors to write articles/long reviews with an easy onsite editor
  • ability for coders to be able to host their software nicely
  • tight integration with smf forum so people can leave comments on reviews, etc. through the forum and have it listed on the page
  • php would be preferred since most everything else on this site is powered by php
  • good search features.
  • looks clean and supports our sidebar theme.

there is nothing that meets all of these and i expect lots of customization and modification is going to be needed no matter what we choose, but i'm still hoping to start with something instead of starting from scratch..

any other thoughts and recommendations?

Currently im thinking of trying to find an easily extensible cms that works with flat files and creates static html pages from templates when needed.  And from there add lots of custom template parsing code to integrate with the forum.  Any suggestions?  It still needs to have reasonable user management functionality..
25943  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture window menus with autoscroll on: May 16, 2006, 04:07:37 AM
carol -
his problem is he is capturing a picture of a web page in a browser that is too big for the screen, so he is using the autoscrolll feature.

but when using autoscroll it only captures the content panel, not the browser titlebar/menubar/statusbar/etc.
so he was asking if there was a way to do an autoscroll capture that also including these decorations of the window.

it's an understantable request but not one easily implemented.

one thing that might be fun to add would be a kind of "simulated window" frame effect, where you could tell screenshot captor to add a simulated window frame with blank titlebar and min/max/close buttons, just as a fun effect.

25945  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Capture window menus with autoscroll on: May 16, 2006, 03:48:07 AM
there is currently no way to do this.. i'm not quite sure how it could be done either, i'm afraid.

i literally cannot type fast enough to launch farr, and type a key that it misses (at least after it has woken up from a deep sleep the first time), and i don't have a particulary fast pc, so it really shouldn't be a problem..  do try with dif. hotkeys, maybe that is the problem..

If you can find a commandline tool that can convert a single file,
then you can use my Drag+Drop Robot to convert thousands using drag and drop easily.
