anyone interested in the men behind making dictionaries needs to read this book:
"The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of The Oxford English Dictionary "

i think we'll get this written in the next week or so; if no one else does it i will.
it's definitely a snack.

assuming we are talking about clipboard help+spell, you can do it even easier than you say smiley
1) select the text from any app
2) hit ctrl+alt+v (or whatever chs shortcut you have set in the capture tab).  the will capture the text, launch chs and show it with spelling errors underlined.
3) press spellcheck button (maybe i should have an option to have this trigger automatically?), and do your spellcheck.
4) now press the icon that looks like a clipboard with an arrow leaving it to the right, that will copy the spellchecked text back over your original text.

you can use the same process for doing quick formatting of your text, not just spellcheck.

welcome to the site anderson - really glad you came by, and glad we could provide a home for mobysaurus, which seems to be getting better by leaps and bounds.

i'm a huge fan of computer dictionaries and i love what you're doing with mobysaurus.  the instant incremental search is fantastic, and the wildcard search is super useful. and of course the addition of a dictionary to the thesaurus features is the best smiley

ps. for anyone that's interested i have nominated mobysaurus for our list of best new apps of 2005:

any idea you have has been thought of and implemented by another people.  the only question is how many people, how long ago, and how good was there solution.

here's a useful package integrating phpbb with mediawiki, probably could serve as the basis for smf-mediawiki addon.

I'll nominate the only game i played this year (or even wanted to play), GTA: San Andreas.  Quite astounding technical feat and thoroughly enjoyable to play.

an alternative strategy: just keep saving up and tell yourself that the longer you wait to upgrade, the more wonderful the feeling will be when you finally do.

there are lots of "directory watching" tools that do stuff like this..  can't remember the names but if you search for "watch directories" + freeware i'll bet you find some.  let us know what you come up with.

looks like exactly what i had in mind - nice find!

could be very fun for kids if you made words like "APPLE" for A, etc.

i think i remember a renamer that worked similar to this.
but its an interesting idea - what if you hade a program that let you drag and drop file and folder names into a "memo" field (like a text editor) where you could perform any kind of search and replace or manual editing of the list of files and folders just as if you were in a text editor (you could even copy text into a text editor and work on it there and then paste it bacl), and then hit GO to have it rename all files and folders to their new changed values.

looks great except for that big white bumper sticker on it - i hope that's removable.

26698  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / PROGRAMMING CONTEST: Write an open source mod for SMF forum on: December 22, 2005, 07:16:31 PM
Ok guys+gals,

I don't know if this is best described as a contest, or more of a sponsorship, but any way you slice it, we've decided to offer a reward for a programmer who can make 2 mods for the smf (simplemachines) forum system, that will let the mediawiki wiki system, and the mantis bugtracker system share smf login info.

We do not expect or want to have multiple programmers working on this at the same time - the main purpose is to find a person who wants to get this done properly, and give them a little incentive and reward.

The final result must be made open source and shared with the SMF community.  We will be happy to provide web space for the programmer who writes this so that they can maintain a page on it (and for any other smf or open source mods they might want to write).

We are looking for someone who wants to implement this correctly, i.e. improve it over time and correct bugs that are found, not just do a quick and dirty job to win a prize.

This is not a horribly complicated mod, and similar mods have been written already which will provide a good starting point, however it is a bit tricky so probably only someone who is a bit comfortable working with smf mods or php/mysql already should try this.



More Details:
  • the aim is to use the SMF login info as the definitive login for mediawiki and mantis bugtracker logins.
  • user should not ever have to log into media wiki or mantis manually if they are already logged into the forum.
  • must work on existing smf accounts (i.e. not just new ones)
  • should have minimal (preferably none at all), messing with the original smf database tables (certainly nothing that would make the tables incompatible with a clean install of smf or mediawiki or mantis); ie we want minimal impact and minimal potential for troubles.
  • we will want to coordinate groups in smf with groups in mediawiki, so that certain member groups in smf map to member groups in wiki, with the mod checking this to keep up to date so that we don't have to manually update databases when status of a user changes.
  • expect to tweak it to get it working right.
  • coder should ideally have their own installation of smf, mediawiki, mantis.  if its an experienced programmer who is SURE they will be implementing this we could set these things up for them in a test account, but we're not going to set up 10 such accounts just for people who are curious about attempting to code this



Rewards:
  • Fully license copy of VmWare
  • $100 cash reward
  • Custom DonationCoder.com t-shirt
  • Some more free software
  • The thanks of tons of people on this board and othe SMF boards.
  • Chance to do more such mods for more rewards.

Feel free to discuss here or email mouser@donationcoder.com

26700  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Top or bottom? on: December 22, 2005, 04:12:25 PM
i guess this should be considered a bug, since the program is meant to automatically sort the thumbnail list so that new thumbnails appear at bottom...   but maybe it's better classified as a christmas miracle since i don't know why it would be doing that nor how to change it smiley

in all seriousness, i intend to replace the thumbnail view completely in the near future with a different implementation that should solve some of the oddities in the thumbnail view.
