26551  Other Software / Developer's Corner / so you want to sell your software - slashdot book review (micro-ISV) on: March 17, 2006, 02:34:10 PM
slashdot reader review of "micro-isv" (indie software vendor)

Quote
When you read a news item about a company buyout or a two-person research project hitting big, how many times have you thought "I wonder if I could run a software company." Apparently, quite a few of software developers are discovering the entrepreneur within, which explains the ever-increasing number of threads on the Business of Software, Software CEO and other similar forums. However, most of the software entrepreneurs are coders, and not business majors. For them the business side of running a company constitutes that grey area that people with suits, expensive glasses and knowledge of word "synergy" learn in business schools. What will be the market for your product? What should you charge for a software app? Should you go freeware, ad-ware, shareware, trialware or open source? How will you accept payments?

it also pays to mention that firefox has a number of very good addons to do this kind of thing.
not sure how they compare to pagespy.
26557  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: use cache to improve FARR start on: March 17, 2006, 01:17:10 PM
i'll talk a little bit more about my fun idea for how to do the index/cache in a smart way that i think people will like.  and of course it will be optional for those who dont want it.
26558  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR acts a little bit slow if a CD is in the CD-Drive on: March 17, 2006, 12:50:17 PM
go to your path search options, and UNCHECK recent folders from the search list, or move it to bottom - it's the cause of this slowdown probably. i need to add code to avoid checking removable media and network lan locations.

actually if it's at startup:
check your launch history and delete any items from the cd, which would cause it to verify their existence on startup.
26559  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: use cache to improve FARR start on: March 17, 2006, 12:48:15 PM
this is coming - i've already decided to implement it, and do it in an interesting way.
just be patient everyone, and all your farr dreams will come true smiley
26560  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: www.alexaholic - see web traffic reports for sites and compare them - cool on: March 17, 2006, 12:17:20 PM
here's a graph of millions of pageviews per day (according to them, but im not sure how accurate their stats are for pageviews):

26561  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: www.alexaholic - see web traffic reports for sites and compare them - cool on: March 17, 2006, 12:03:34 PM
yeah it's weird, i think it means that of the million people they track, 60 of them visited us.  though im not entirely sure.
i will post more traditional stats again soon, we are definitely growing well and getting a large amount of traffic.
the only way to make real sense of it is to check out some other sites and see how well other sites do.
60 out of a million might not seem too good, but it's not bad at all compared to many sites.
26562  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feature request: text background color by frequency of launch on: March 17, 2006, 10:23:34 AM
something like this might be nice - though maybe the color would be distracting.  what about just a column of results which showed frequency or score as a color bar?

26568  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Partitioning hard drive - any point? on: March 16, 2006, 05:35:11 AM
can i put out a call for help in this thread?
baseman is writing a review of partition manager for dc and i'm helping to edit it.

we could really use some help writing up info, opinions, recommendations for the various partition management tools.

so far the programs being looked at are:
    BootIt NG
    Paragon Partition Manager
    Acronis Disk Director
    Symantec Partition Magic
    VCOM Partition Commander
    CompusApps Swissknife
    Ranish

we could really really use your help in writing up some of the content for this review.  if you feel like you can write some paragraphs (or pages), about one or more of these programs: how they work, how they are different from the competition, your opinions, what kinds of users should choose them, etc.

Note we're not really asking for one liner "i like it" type of responses, but really more lengthy discussions of them to help with the content of the review.  We could really use the help. thanks!

And maybe some more general comments about why partitioning is useful or not, and strategies about partitioning - any text that you think would be useful to put into a review would be quite welcome, or links to other guides, etc.  or if you know of any programs you think should be included which aren't.

You can paste your stuff on this thread or email it to me (mouser@donationcoder.com).

I'm really hoping we can get some help from someone who knows some of these programs and has some views.

When will this contest end?
the general trend on this site has been a bit informal - no fixed date set, but when we find a new one that is a consensus winner, we end it.

but probably makes sense to have a date before which we promise the contest won't end.  Let's say April 1 at the very earliest.  Probably more like May 1.

I was really surprised at mouser's comment on Zoot!
you mean when i said it looked nice?
i didn't mean literally that it's appearance was nice, but that the feature set on the page seemed nice. smiley

And why aren't I getting e-mail notifications about these posts?
maybe when we upgraded the forum the notifications got reset?

what about: "A Home for Software Fanatics"
26573  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Contest - Make a new Banner for Website on: March 15, 2006, 01:12:42 PM
BrotherS and CarolH both have suggested that what with the forum upgrade, we really need to revamp the banner at the top of the website pages and forum page.

both are designed as  a pair with a main image and a sidebar that can extend as far as it needs to go.
i think the sizes are pretty good so we should probably keep to them.

I'm attaching current versions to end of this post.

Note you need to design it without the "a new kind of website" text - since we want to change that and may want to change it dynamically or per page.

Actually i was thinking of a new slogan for the site: "A Place for Lovers of Software" or something like that.



NEW: DOWNLOAD A SAMPLE FILE SET TO TEST YOUR IMAGE IN HTML PAGE:
http://www.donationcoder.com/Contests/banner/



DEADLINE
The contest does not have a hard deadline - we will end it when we get a design so good that it demands ending it.
However, it will not end before May 1st, so any entry prior to that will be considered.



Prizes..
hmm... not sure, free donationcoder.com shirt or mug from http://www.cafepress.com/donationcoder
plus a usb 4x5" drawing pad if you want it, or else some other free software


Please submit files in exactly this dimension, file format (png), and file names.  And you need to provide BOTH a forum pair and website pair of images.
