my main worry with the wiki as it is now is that it's quite empty and people may get dissapointed when they go looking for content and find very little.. but maybe it's just a matter of time.

The main Specials page (see link at top of each page) usually highlights the biggest discounts for apps that have won our awards.

But you might not know that there is also the Discount Summary Page which now shows a good overview all discounts available to members along with expiration dates, links to program homepages, and links to the members only section post with the discount code:

(you can get to that page from the left hand sidebar of the Specials page as well, btw).

this is somewhat off topic, but would anyone else be interested in us trying to arrange some live ahk lessons by skrommel in our chat channel some day?

had another thought... you know carol.. i have had an ongoing dcom error for YEARS... and was never able to find a cure despite long days searching..  i'm wondering if your fix is related.. going to give it a try soon.

as tempting as it is to encourage adding content to the wiki, i think we might be better off focusing the wiki on areas of content where we can really deliver.  It seems to me that your info is extremely useful but belongs somewhere where such information has a context and other posts by others in same area, and donationcoder.com is probably not such a place.

it's not a settled issue of course, we're still trying to figure how to best use that wiki and figure out which content belongs in forum and which in wiki.  i kind of think that best use of the wiki might simply be for collaborative group software reviews, listing user sites and info, and maybe some how-to's on using the software from our site.

Therein lies Nintendogs inexorable pull: It’s the first game powered by empathy. These things are much more convincing than the Tomogatchis, those rudimentary keychain creatures from the first virtual pet craze a decade ago. Nintendogs go a long way toward satisfying a sort of canine Turing test: If they look and act enough like dogs, then at a simple cognitive level, they’re a pretty good substitute.

i agreee with dan, i think google is looking like they are getting involved/invested with firefox BIG TIME, which should lead to some serious continued development of firefox.
26684  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / New Beta Release - Dr. Windows - Help Needed and CONTEST!!! on: December 07, 2005, 06:59:21 PM
This is just a funny little joke program called Dr.Windows which pops up fake windows error messages.

It's good for playing tricks on relatives.

But...

I need help making more dialogs for it before we can release it!
There are only a few dialogs included in this beta, we need many more.  They are easy to make, the dialogs are just plain text files.
Anyone have a good sense of humour?  Help us out and make some funny original messages.

Thanks!

I'll just add that wanderer is talking about (our very own) Skrommel's program:
http://www.donationcoder....mmel/index.html#CacheSort

And also a reminder: feed the skrommel!!

(That's a euphimism that means, if you like skrommel's programs you should consider donating him a couple bucks to encourage his continued work; donation link on skrommel's one hour software page).

Words cannot begin to describe the awesome eruption that is created from adding Mentos candies to a 2-liter bottle of soda. The eruption is enormous... and so is the learning if you consider the chemistry.

thanks andreas8, i'm going to update review info about hex view.

and that is a very interesting point about changing character set based on file type.  if anyone knows how to do this in UE, or any other editors that have this feature let us know.

26697  DonationCoder.com Software / Dr.Windows / Dr.Windows Dialogs - Add Yours! on: December 07, 2005, 09:08:10 AM
there is a problem i think with putting the info in the .cfg files, which is if people share .cfg files they would have to edit them each time to change their scheduled settings..
26698  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Feature suggestion: spotlight on: December 07, 2005, 08:08:25 AM
nice idea.. i will see what i can do on next release;
screenshot captor has some good blur/dim/gray options for this, but i'd like to add more effects for drawing attention to areas.

implement an option to test the messages.
Maybe in the CTRL+tray menu => "Test Message ..." .... to load/launch an config file.

good idea stefan, i will add to next version.

i also like your idea to be able to set a time for activating; maybe even a day and time for special occasions, just have to come up with good agreement on how to specify it.

do we want to use a single file like Schedule.txt which when in schedule mode would just consist of lines line:
Dialog: reminder.cfg
RunOn: 1200
Dialog: reformat.cfg
RunOn: 2000
etc.

or do we want the time info in each cfg file?
26700  DonationCoder.com Software / Dr.Windows / Dr.Windows Dialogs - Add Yours! on: December 07, 2005, 07:48:48 AM
stefan, you have to restart the program to get it to see new .cfg files; i will modify this in next version.
