Tour de Babel
(published September 2004)
This is my whirlwind languages tour - the one I was going to write for the Amazon Developers Journal this month, but couldn't find a way to do it that was... presentable.

26552  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Instant Text V Pro - more than the usual features of a text expander on: March 05, 2006, 09:50:45 PM
instant text sounds quite good, but at $189 (ouch!!)

this may be a ripe category for a freeware/donationware alternative..  maybe harrie can tell us about what a perfect tool for this would look like, and try to think if there are any features that are missing in these tools that would be nice to have.
26553  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Performance in New Version on: March 05, 2006, 07:41:52 PM
let me add that this is just a stopgap version. version 2 is still on track and will be MUCH MUCH faster.

not only am i optimizing everything but i have decided to implement (optional) indexing in a way i think will be really cool.

26555  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Focus Problem on: March 05, 2006, 04:24:53 PM
does it happen with other ways of bringing up farr?

i've added ctrl+space as a way to bring it up now, as people suggested, let's see if that solves it - at least we would know if its's something specific to alt, which i suspect (it may be that alt+space while in another application can trigger the current application window menu).

v 1.09.02 is a beta release - i expect there may be another release in near future as this version is tested.

a lot of the changes for this version are oriented to new defaults for new installs.

26558  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: does the skin decrease the performance? on: March 05, 2006, 04:33:55 AM
theoretically, yes.
but i don't think it should be affecting the display of results, just the initial window pop up might be delayed by 1/20th of a second perhaps, i'm just guessing.  i very much doubt it's noticable.

Collect some insects and place them inside the unique sound chamber. A powerful 3X magnifier enlarges your performers so you can see every detail. Put on the headphones and listen as a microphone under the special sound stage picks up and amplifies every move and noise your bug makes!

this is coming along with some more advanced scripting.
26564  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: bug: wrong version number shown on: March 04, 2006, 05:30:42 PM
sorry, yep the about box is wrong, i'll fix it in next version.  i was just rushing to get out the latest release to address this stupid false virus alarm in the dll (see other posts in this section).  the dlls have to do with redbox capture.

artifact:
make sure screenshot captor is not running in your tray when you run the upgrade (i need to add an auto check for this) - it sounds like that is the cause of your problem.

see http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=2644.0 for a nice video comparing simple vs. non-simple advertising.
26566  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Microsoft redesigns the iPod packaging (not really) ... on: March 04, 2006, 05:11:39 PM
i wouldn't call that a spoof i'd call it an extremely professional and illuminating look at advertising and the value of simplicity.  ties in well with this post: http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=2641.0
26567  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: Cody's Excellent Vacation CodyCard Contest Ended Feb28 - Winners Inside on: March 04, 2006, 05:00:03 PM
that is a nice gesture but i think that such gifts should be given out without asking people to dondate in return.
since you already have a shirt may i suggest either:
1) get yourself a mug(cup) from donationcoder
OR
2) if you want to give it away, just wait until you see someone else on the forum who is being helpful and then choose them to receive the prize - just tell me who you have chosen and i will give them the prize
OR
3) pick another card on the contest page and award them the prize, if maybe there was someone who made on that you thought should have won but didnt.

sorry, the new launchbar commander app ate all of my time.  i'm working on farr update now it will be out on monday (or before).
26569  DonationCoder.com Software / DesktopCoral / Re: Spelling? on: March 04, 2006, 04:53:13 PM
yep .. it's kind of a running joke that i've immortalized my bad spelling forever Sad
it's too late to fix it now so we just pretend its like the coral reef in the sea smiley


you're not the first - if you look at the email we've recieved you'll see someone else point it out as well: http://www.donationcoder.com/About/quotes.html

superboyac, maybe you could ask the author if they are willing to give a nice discount for dc members - sounds like something the people here would like.

vrgrrl set up this set of pictures starting with my cat - i wondered if i was the only person fascinating by pictures of my cat yawning..

26572  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Coding horror does it again - the importance of simplicity on: March 04, 2006, 12:07:01 AM
last month's site of the month has a great blog entry today about the importance of simplicity:


i think one of the current weaknesses of donationcoder is that the site is complex and confusing - we need to (and plan to) try to take some steps in the upcoming months to simplify things here a little.
26573  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Startup problem? on: March 03, 2006, 08:35:24 PM
it may be not finding its database due to the shortcut, like maybe the working directory is wrong..

try this:
1. delete the startup you created
2. start it manually.
3. go to options and check the option for "start with windows"
26574  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: suggestion: reselect a text for re-editing on: March 03, 2006, 08:27:07 PM
you can re-edit text boxes and all others.
26575  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Charter Memberships will not be granted after April 2nd - Act Now! on: March 03, 2006, 07:44:22 PM
A "charter membership" is granted to people who join an organization during its inception.

This month marks the one year anniversary of DonationCoder.com, and starting April 2nd we will no longer be accpeting new "Charter Members" on the site/forum.  Future donators will be known as "Supporting Members"

Existing honorary members as of April 2nd will be upgraded to "Charter Honorary Members".



While we don't have any immediate plans for benefits that will apply only to charter members and not supporting members, we do view the charter members as those people who supported this site when it really counted, and it's likely they will occasionally get special treatment on the site.

So thank you to all of the charter and charter honorary members for sticking with us and supporting the site through our first year - this site is thriving because of you (hey if you haven't set your avatar or yearbook quote on the supporter yearbook page, now is the time).



So if you've been waiting for a good reason to donate.. now you have one smiley
