Our friend Cliff wrote a nice column in this weeks Infopackets newsletter where he discusses his recommendations for free antivirus programs:

it's so nice to hear that it's useful - i could actually fix this problem by limiting the speed of visual updates to the grid.

thanks reldas - i'll fix it in the next release.

out for my mini-review of disk-visualising programs in the next few weeks
- cool.
(btw - none of my apps mess with the system in any way - so it's not launch bar commander.)

slide and autohide are a bit buggy at the moment, they dont seem to always trigger.

autorefresh bars on save is a good idea - as is avoiding the dissapearance and recreation which i guess is causing allens problems as well.

25938  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: Cody's Excellent Vacation CodyCard Contest Ended Feb28 - Winners Inside on: March 01, 2006, 02:30:50 AM
Ok, after some difficult deliberations, Allen and Nudone and I have picked out some winners to receive prizes.  There were some very good entries, but in the end, only a few could be selected.

The following members captured Cody's spirit so well that they will receive a DonationCoder.com item from the shop:
  • Stefan
  • Jgpaiva
  • Momonan
  • Rover
  • Loonier

Winners, please pick out your item and email me with item # and size if its clothing (mouser@donationcoder.com).  For those who submitted cards but didn't win a prize - don't fret, there will be more chances to win in the future!



As for the postcards, it seems Cody was very busy during his vacation, and we learned a lot about his world wide trip.

I thought Stefan capture the truest spirit of Cody in his postcards, where we learned through Stefan that Cody really did not steal the money for his own profiteering like we first thought..

We learned that cody became a daddy, and just needed the money to take care of his kids (as a side note, we also learned that Cody does not speak perfect english):


We also learned that Cody was working hard to double the money he "borrowed" so he could bring it back as a hero:


And lastly, we learned the real reason he borrowed the money, to save his fellow birds from the flu:




Momonan painted a very different picture of Cody, as a confident rogue.  Here he is lecturing us about fixing the security holes in our site:


But then his carelessness gets the better of him and we learn he fell victim to a classic scam:




From Jgpaiva we learn that on his vacation Cody took his first trip to space but ran into some difficulty:



However he must have gotten that sorted out because from Rover we learned that he took a job for NASA and went back!



And lastly, loonier shows us that Cody can be whimsical.. During his last days he visited an alternate universe and then decided to join a chess team in india and give back all the money.




Even though in the end Cody decided to come back to DC, which we are very happy about, there may be some lingering effects of his last trip to the parallel dimension.. he has informed us that his cousin from the parallel dimension has slipped into this dimension and may be planning some trouble on the site.. so we'll have to keep our guard up in the future..

Announcing the Winners of the First DonationCoder.com CodyCard Contest...

[attach=1]

Cody the bird (the official DC mascot) absconded with a big chunk of the donations and took an expensive around-the-world vacation.  The contest was to create some postcards that Cody would send back from his vacation, from the CodyCards Page.

Winners will receive a rare DonationCoder.com collector's item, an item from the HyperRich Friends of DonationCoder.com Cafepress Shop with their winning postcard image on it... Worth over TEN MILLION DOLLARS !!!! (disclaimer: may be worth substantially less).


You can see all the entries here: http://www.donationcoder....codycards/gal/?&gal=m


And the winners are..  Stay tuned.. 




As you can see, Cody is back on his perch on the forum/site, so I guess he is well rested and ready to resume his responsibilities.  Stay tuned for the story of his adventure.

i have added a custom script to show me the posts of each entrant so that those people who have helped others on the forum get some bonus weight which makes it a little more likely that they will win. and when you have won recently you will be less likely to win again in the near future.
25941  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / FEBRUARY SOFTWARE DRAWING RESULTS - POSTED! on: February 28, 2006, 09:38:00 PM
Ok, we have the winners for february's giveaways, as calculated with the prize optimizer.

 allen
 aruvam
 dantheman
 Hellie
 imtrobin
 Rover
Winners of 'ACDSee Pro' (3):
 jroad
 superboyac
 tinyvillager

All winners have now been notified by email to their forum email address;  if you do not confirm via email that you still want your prize it will be given to someone else.

And hey, if you didn't win this time, don't be sad, just enter to win in march's giveaway.


Curious about how we award prizes?  See http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1684.0
Note that winning something one month reduces your chances of winning the next month, and being helpful on the forum increases your chances.

25942  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Social bookmarking sites on: February 28, 2006, 07:58:38 PM
I'm really curious to build a list of social bookmarking/rating sites for websites.
basically these sites let you sign up and then rate sites as you browse (usually using a plugin), and see how others rate sites, and share discoveries.
seems like a really nice idea.

for example: stumbleupon - http://www.stumbleupon.com
another one: blinklist http://www.blinklist.com

anyone else have favorites?

I think you should make sure that the ini file is saved to disk every time a change is made.
- agreed, i will put this in v2.

ill have to check out the uninstaller issue - i've never seen that before (but then i dont uninstall dc apps that often smiley)

regarding ini file, yes i think the plan will be to let people save and load ini files as they wish.

as for the system tray trigger stuff, yeah thats all a remnant of what i was saying about the different ways to use the program that will be simplified in v2, so hopefully that will fix that.

all of my software uses this dual install technique - its basically a self-extracting exe file with a separate installer; that lets me use a good installer engine (inno setup) and still let programs be extracted manually.

i think with v2 we may need to make some walkthroughs/tutorials showing useful ways to get the most out of the program.  one of the nice things about farr has always been (imho) that you can just start using it without having to configure anything.  we will try to keep with that in v2 but also have some extra features that may require some examples.
25944  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: testers post your first impressions here on: February 28, 2006, 07:12:10 PM
yep i need to make a note about that.
25945  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: testers post your first impressions here on: February 28, 2006, 06:49:51 PM
i have to say after trying the latest version of true launch bar, that lbc has a long way to go to catch up.

so everyone who likes launch bar commander should definitely check out true launch bar (50% discount for dc members this month) and it's free cousin free launch bar.
25946  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: testers post your first impressions here on: February 28, 2006, 06:47:15 PM
1 - minimum width - yep, it's on my todo list
2- auto hide seems a bit buggy, ill try to get it fixed.

3 - side by side when undocked - works for me im not sure what your problem is..

2 - Is there any way to make the icons display on the horizontal instead of list-like?
what do you mean?
25948  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: A few problems and a suggestion on: February 28, 2006, 05:56:58 PM
thanks dave - i think you might be right that a reboot and maybe restart may not end up saving the configuration file; actually this has caused problems in some of my other programs in that they tend not to save the options to file until exit by default, so that if the computer crashes they are lost (and it seems there may be a bug that doesn't save on restart).

maybe i misunderstood the uninstall issue - do you mean that you never ran the installer, but then tried to run the uninstaller? that might explain the issue.  you would normally only run the uninstaller if you also installed using the installer.  maybe i can do a test.

i think your approach to making it friendly for new users is a viewpoint id like to make sure we get right with v2 - i hope you'll stick around and stay active while we get v2 out the door and help us to make it both easy to use and powerful.

especially as we add the new features it's going to be important that using the program doesn't get harder.
25949  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: testers post your first impressions here on: February 28, 2006, 05:34:21 PM
good ideas both - i can add that.
