we've talked about this in the past.. the problem is that because of the way farr likes to show its results, in a popup listbox, it's hard to see why having it always visible in a taskbar would really have a benefit.  ie why have it onscreen all the time even when you're not using it?

with a program like those we reviewed here:

26554  DonationCoder.com Software / Mircryption / Serious Security Bug - All Users Should Update to version 1.15.00 or higher on: January 28, 2006, 01:49:14 AM
Serious Security Bug - All Users Should Update

Today (1/27/06) we were alerted by the people at RainbowCrack-Online that they had discovered a buffer overflow risk in the mircryption dll, which could be demonstrated by a program called ircfuzz by Ilja van Sprundel. Ircfuzz generates and floods a mirc client with huge amounts of random data, and it turns out that mircryption does not sufficiently protect itself from the possibility of abnormally long channel names or nick names(>255 characters).

While it is not possible for a normal user to trigger such an attack, it is still possible that a malicious server owner could send commands that could crash your irc client while running mircryption, or possibly exploit the buffer overflow in order to execute malicious code.

While we know of no existing exploit of this bug in the wild, this should be considerd a SERIOUS risk, and all mircryption users should update immediately.

Both the mircryption.mrc script and mircryption.dll files as of version 1.15.00 have been redundantly fixed to protect against flaw.

You can update using the online updater, or by installing the new version over your old version, or by manually downloading and replaceing the new mircryption.dll and mircryption.mrc files on the download page.

Thank you to rainbow-crack-online for alerting us to this bug.

This is the first time in 4+ years that we've had reason to release a security update for mircryption Sad

thanks amadawn, that means a lot to me.

for those interested in following the long thread and discussion that amadawn is referring to see this post where we discussed it:

and the full usenet thread here: http://groups.google.com/...m/thread/7e3e5755136b0a54

its actually a thread started on the usenet group alt.comp.freeware but mirrored on some web forums.

both have their own section in this subforum though are mostly empty.
a little bit about contextmenu commander is here: http://www.donationcoder....orum/index.php?board=51.0
26558  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / All these F+R ideas are wonderful on: January 27, 2006, 07:02:39 PM
i'm loving all the activity surrounding f+r lately -

for some reason f+r has remained one of the less downloaded apps on our site, which is partly why a program like screenshot captor has gotten so much of my development time lately.

and then ive been working like mad on a new set of apps for the site (launchbar commander and contextmenu commander) which i am extremely excited about.

but you guys have really inspired me with all the ideas surrounding f+r (farr), and you've revitalized my interest in version 2. so keep the ideas coming and let's really make a splash with it!
26559  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feature Request V2 — Task Control on: January 27, 2006, 06:57:38 PM
yes it sounds like quicksilver has the kind of thing i was trying to get at -
the idea that you could do incremental search for BOTH the command AND the file to operate on..
would be interesting to hear more ideas on how this kind of workflow could be presented in the best way..

Mercury Robot Launcher, although that sounds like some kind of NASA facility!

just visit the license key page: http://www.donationcoder.com/Keys/index.php
(you can get there from here by pressing the "downloads" button above and then the "license key" link on the left of that page.
26567  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feature Request V2 — Task Control on: January 27, 2006, 05:18:55 PM
yes we could require pressing an arrow button or something..  like when you right click on an item now.
i was just wondering if there wasnt a more keyboard centric way to do it..
26568  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Another similar app (disclaimer: I haven't tried it) on: January 27, 2006, 05:16:48 PM
delay will be an option (and i should point out it might actually improve search depth speed if it makes update speed less frequent).

and yes, looks are important too; i think we will have to choose a skin to install by default for F+R 2 (though of course it will be easy to disable it and go back to native look).
26569  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: on high resolution 1280x1024 SC reacts a little bit sluggish on: January 27, 2006, 05:14:35 PM
make sure you check these options that can affect speed:

if your image has objects/frame, then check the objects tab in preferences for another option that can effect speed:

objects+frames can really slow down rendering. if you are sure you are done moving them arround you can "merge" them into the picture from the Objects menu which will return you to the speed for a normal image but you wont be able to remove them or move them any more.

i agree with jgpaiva on this one - if you have lots of images, you really need it to the scroll the window just like in an explorer pane.  you can however use the down arrow and up arrow to go up and down selecting images smiley
26573  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Coding Horror blog has become must reading for programmers on: January 27, 2006, 05:04:26 PM
we've discussed joel spasky before on this forum: he's extremely smart, and a very good writer (i have one of his books on user interface design), and has written some fantastic pieces.

but it's also true that more than a few of us find some of his posts/writing hard to swallow in terms of tireless self promotion, and obsession with money.  rubs me the wrong way a little.
26574  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: What is the best image format to save screenshots from desktop programs? on: January 27, 2006, 05:02:02 PM
screenshot captor has a little trick:
you can use the name field at the bottom, to RENAME and CONVERT image formats.

if your name field for a picture says "mypic" and it's saved as a png, you can rename it to 'yourpic' by simply typing "yourpic" in that box and hitting enter.

you can rename and change format at same time by simply specifying an extension: so just type "yourpic.jpg" and it will convert the file to jpg, save it with new name, and delete original.

correct me if i'm wrong but i think this is all about the software.  they may be marketing it as a hardware-software combo, but i'm guessing it's just a standard usb pendrive with special software.
