jgpaiva, and all other people who write coding snacks and such:

set yourself up a little paypal button so that people can show their appreciation to you if you do little projects like this:

it's wonderful when people donate to the site, but this forum is also about people donating to each other to help each other out, so you guys and gals should have a way to accept donations!

slate looks nice, but i still find black on white the easiest to read.
25929  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Source code colors: Contrast / Readability / Ergonomics on: February 20, 2006, 11:50:05 AM
nice!  it really is useful to have some sample color schemes to look at in order to make a decision about which one looks best.

that blue one sure gives me flashbacks to the days of turboc and turbopascal.

maybe we need a script that gradually changes your color scheme based on time of day, from light to dark - that would be cool smiley

easy to do - i'll let someone else do it because its a fun project, but if no one responds in 24 hours ill post a solution.
this is actually a fun programming challenge that i would give to a new programmer, so it's a good post for people just learning how to program smiley

im assuming you want an .exe program for windows that does this right? if not, if you want it done in a particular language then you should post an update.

we are talking about when you attach images and files to a forum post using the forum feature, not hosting them externally on a site like imageshack.

Summary
As far as I can tell, there isn't a decent mailing list program to be found anywhere on the planet. I don't want a lot a really, just a basic tool to keep a list of addresses and post a message once in a while. You'd think I could find one...

perfect way to start this section - absolutely perfect.

i think having a thread like this, with a list of pointers to relevant posts on the forum that we can keep updated is incredibly valuable.  Thmbsup

(i can see this becoming one of the best features of the forum).
25938  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / any fans here of the Internal Affairs I-III chinese movies? on: February 19, 2006, 08:02:39 PM
this series of 3 chinese cop movies are really excellent.

you really have to be alert and paying attention or youll never follow them.
but even so i'm a bit confused about the ending to #3.  i dont want to give away any spoilers so if someone understands the end well could pm me it would be appreciated.

and for those who haven't seen these movies, i recommend.

what part do you need help with?
if you need help recording the audio files, then go find yourself streambox vcr.
if you need help using url snooper, then tell us what more help you need.

ps. this should probably be posted on url snooper section of the forum here: http://www.donationcoder....orum/index.php?board=17.0

25940  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: xp dual boot raid 0 insanity cool down on: February 19, 2006, 03:34:23 PM
i have always found dual booting more trouble than its worth.

i agree with db to use a virtual machine if you have a single primary OS, and then want some others where speed is not an issue.
if you really need multiple operating ssystems that you switch between often that must run fast -
buy another pc and connect them via lan.

as good as the vmware and virtualpc tools are these days, its hard for me to see cases where dual booting is worth the hassle regarding boot managers, etc.
25941  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: The fear of change on: February 19, 2006, 03:16:34 PM
in general, i think its more important to use the proper tool for the job; some jobs are best tackled with a quick and dirty scripting language, some require a big heavy duty object oriented infrastructure maximized for speed.
25942  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: The fear of change on: February 19, 2006, 03:15:29 PM
i agree with most of what you've said -
and i definitely think there are a class of people who revel in saying there language is the "one true language" and all others are horrible.

personally i am still resisting .net.

it has some stuff i really like but until it is officially and fully endorsed as a long term cross platform solution i am avoiding it.  i don't need to waste time on something that is not robustly cross platform, and i dont know how well mono is going to be supported into the future.

as a 20yr c/c++ programming i have to tell you my feelings about the language are profoundly conflicted.  i am attached and fond of the syntax and style but also find it increasingly distasteful and full of legacy evilness.

however i've not found a competing language i liked any better.

im still in search of a better language/development platform.
i've had my dreams of making my own, but that way lies madness i know.

just a report that mirc 6.17 and mircryption work fine together,
no need to do anything special, just install new mirc over old and leave default options to keep all your settings.
25944  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Instructions for making a PayPal link people can follow to donate money to you on: February 19, 2006, 10:28:50 AM
just wanted to add a note:

the $ under people's names is for people to make small donations to a user if they appreicate their help.

if you don't want to set up a paypal account or something like that, feel free to add a non-paypal link to your favorite charity or something, so people who want to express their thanks can make a donation in your honor.

i'm not that good at figuring how to download stuff even when you have the url; some sites are tricky, some use technology that can be very hard to record.

there are some people here who can often help: http://p084.ezboard.com/bstreemeboxvcr

it sounds like you might need the computer anger management class that i 100% need.
one time i was screaming at the computer so loud that my neighbors came over to find out if i was murdering people.

my vote still goes for Dina as the cripest and clearest font for its size.

absolutely brilliant!!!

programmers should pay special attention to that last row.
