thanks for the screenshot koreth, at 12pt the Consolas really looks nice, but becomes a bit blurry as it gets smaller.

the main motivation for these bitmapped fonts is to make something that is monospaced and pixel-level tweaked for a very specific small point size.  so they aren't appropriate for tasks where you might want larger fonts.

seems the server is still having some troubles.. i've been working witht he tech support people for the last day, constantly, on the problems, which they seem to be having a very hard time identifying and fixing.

just wanted to let you know i am working hard on this and we will get it sorted. hopefully when it's over we will have an even faster and better tuned server.  thanks for your understanding.

25933  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / explanation about the Feb.21 server downtime (plus digg.com effect) on: February 22, 2006, 01:46:27 AM
jroad's thread comparing bitmapped fonts got mentioned on frontpage of digg.com on feb.21 and it threw the server into a tizzy..

ps.i thought we bought an expensive dedicated server account to be able to handle such cased  Cry


the server itself was mostly online throughout but it looks like a small problem that caused the /tmp directory to switch out of world readable mode caused a cascase of problems whenever the mysql database engine needed to make a temp file, which triggered a whole days worth of troubles until it was found.  whether this is all going to happen the next time we hit some real traffic is anyone's guess, but if anyone knows another good dedicated server company with good knowledgable tech support, please let me know.


thanks everyone for being so patient..  now back to your regularly scheduled programming..

updated to version 1.04.01 -
miniflash.exe is now included with a little demo of how to use it.

Q: What is Miniflash?
A: Miniflash is a tiny flash movie (swf) player whose only purpose is to play a movie in a borderless or thinborder window, which can be invoked on the commandline and passed flash variable parameters, which is normally not possible in the flash player.  it can be useful for capturing screenshots of flash movies with certain parameters, in a non-interactive fashion in conjunction with MiniCap. (99.9999999999999999999% of people have no need for miniflash).

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:
http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1283.0

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.
25945  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
25946  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: A script to display a random line from txt file on: February 20, 2006, 04:02:26 AM
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...
