i think in the future of software we should expect to see greater separation of core functionality from user interface, and the move to standardized frontends.

that is, i expect eventually all programs will come with a "core" and a "frontend" or two, the way some commandline programs already have.  and that all programs will be "scriptable" using one interface, or usable via a gui (or have multiple guis).

in fact this is of course how some crossplatform tools are already made (like a commandline mp3 encoder that can be driven with various gui frontend tools).  what i think will happen though is a move to a more standardized solution to these components.

anyway, we def. got off subject smiley

thanks for the comments about screenshot captor and the site, glad to have you here.  no doubt that the godfather is an amazing program - especially if you need to do advanced scripting.doesn't mean it's the best tool for every user.  no shame in wanting something cleaner and simpler for most tasks.  i know i can get overwhelmed if there are too many options, and for some tasks you really don't want the most powerful tool, you want the easiest tool to use.

26557  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Wireless question on: December 29, 2005, 10:30:32 AM
1. if you don't already have wireless built into your laptop (i don't think you do), then you need to buy a pcmcia wireless card for your laptop.
2. if you don't already have a router, buy yourself a router with wireless support, like this one: http://www.netgear.com/products/details/WGT624.php

you meantion you have a usb asdl modem.. if you are *renting* this modem from your isp, you should strongly consider buying your own - you may be able to get one with asdl modem and wireless router all in one, for example like this: http://www.netgear.com/pr...ducts/details/DG834PN.php  but i don't know much about that so that's just something to look at, im not saying its definitely the answer.

26560  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: IDEA: Add Commandline Support on: December 29, 2005, 09:06:12 AM
it would be very easy to do - the only reason i havent is that i assume there are a lot of good commandline screeenshot capture apps already out there which are much smaller.

there are other partition management tools as well, though partitionmagic is one of the best.

i find myself in rare disagreement with jibz here.
i think the closed nature of winrar is a very bad thing, and in a field like compression where there are so many good open source compression algorithms, i think it's a bad thing that the rar format has become so widely used.  it's like mp3, we get stuck in this trap of a proprietary format.

i include a picture from my system tray - i have used it for maybe 5-10 years without issue, but i only use it one particular way so who knows..

i think zaine tried to advocate for the open format 7-zip in his review, didn't he?

i appreciate superboyac comments in this thread -
more and more as we go into the future it is the user interface that represents the bulk of a program.
no matter how "powerful" a program is, if it's hard to do the common stuff, many of us don't want to spend a week learning how to script something.  it does go to show you that you can't simply grab the program people call the best or most powerful, especially if you want something that is designed for smooth ease of use.

this has to exist doesnt it?
it should not be hard to make at all.

yeah, he says so on his page; there is probably another free app somewhere that does..
if you use classic mode display (as i much prefer), then it looks perfect.

in the old days of ads, people got rich off such stuff.
now sites like google aggressively punish such behavior.  not only will you lose money instead of making it but google has been banning sites for this, and people are using these ad clickers now to attack each other and get each other banned ! crazy world.
