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

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.
26679  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.
26681  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Trapped in a room flash games... on: January 27, 2006, 04:58:00 PM
love it!!
i have to find the one(s) that inspired that one.

for those of you who liked the samarost post (http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1806.0),
these are much more spare and non-animated puzzles, but also very cool and fun and challenging.
26682  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feature Request V2 — Task Control on: January 27, 2006, 04:48:10 PM
i am more than happy to add functions for switchingto, closing, minimizing, changing priority of, etc. running processes.

i'm just thinking aloud about the kind of user interface that would be most efficient for the user to tell the program what they are wanting.

it seems to me that that this idea and some other related ideas we have discussed both sort of are asking for a way to first identify a file or command and THEN identify a subsequent operation or file.

for example:
first typing CLOSE to choose the close command from a  list and then typing THEBAT to choose thebat program from a list of running processes.

the problem is.. how could we implement such a system?  it's an interesting user interface challenge..
26683  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: What happened to the "Improve icon" on the ToDo list? on: January 27, 2006, 04:43:18 PM
but something like "mercury runner" could be feasible..
26684  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: What happened to the "Improve icon" on the ToDo list? on: January 27, 2006, 04:42:50 PM
i love naming suggestions - i have come up with some good ones and some terrible ones and so i welcome the help!
one thing that's important is that the name be fairly unique so that its easy to locate information on it.  the single word name "mercury" sounds great but will surely fail this test and i'll bet you dollars to donuts you'll be able to find 10 apps already existing with this exact name smiley
26685  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Another similar app (disclaimer: I haven't tried it) on: January 27, 2006, 04:29:44 PM
regarding jdmarch's comments:
i am one of the biggest anti-skin people you will find so you can imagine my surprise when i actually found that i like FARR better with a skin on it! (i use mxskin31.skn skin).

but rest assured that the very first requirement i had when i looked at skinning solutions was, i would only do it if it could be done with an option to disable skinning 100% with absolutely no hit in performance or degradation in normal native interface.  i will maintain this commitment to keeping the program fast and efficient and looks will never take priority over functionality.

v2 will be more full featured and faster than v1, there is nothing that requires compromising on this front smiley
26686  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Mention of Find and Run Robot in www.downloadsquad.com! on: January 27, 2006, 04:25:05 PM
wonderful!!
amadawn thanks for bringing this to our attention, and bringing f+r to their attention.

i've said it before but it really is so important that it needs repeating, we rely on word of mouth to let people know about our programs, our site, and what we are trying to do here.  it is so hard to get out the word about a site like ours and things like this make all the difference in the world.

i also can't tell you how much all the activity on this section about f+r and all the suggestions put into the bug tracker inspires me to get back to work on v2 and make it live up to all of your hopes for it.  i know with all of you thinking up such great new features that as good as v1 might be, v2 is going to be a whole different level of cool smiley

if there's one thing we should all know by now it's that different people have different needs, and different styles demand different tools as well.

it's always good to hear about new tools, so keep em coming!

( just don't let brotherS hear you say anything bad about autohotkey or he'll go off like a firecracker  Grin )
26688  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Get a Dell Notebook With Participation !! on: January 27, 2006, 08:29:38 AM
yeah i think this qualifies as something we don't permit here: you can't post links with reference numbers and stuff where you get benefits when people click on it.

it's fine to post deals and discounts (though it should go here: http://www.donationcoder....orum/index.php?board=39.0), but you can't post such links where you get some special benefit when people click through.
26689  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Living without AutoHotkey - possible? on: January 27, 2006, 07:44:48 AM
heheh people sure have strong opinions about these utilities - that's a good sign really, but you guys please don't go to war over it!
26690  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: U3 Smart Drives on: January 27, 2006, 04:59:00 AM
very interesting idea.  i can see that being quite useful.

i know the general issue of being able to move your "working set of docs and settings and preferences" around between machines is a very hot area of research in ms labs and similar companies, and i do expect it to be something that is ubiquitous in the future.
26691  News and Reviews / Best E-mail Client / Re: The Bat - how to customize? on: January 27, 2006, 02:41:04 AM
i also like the full height left account list.
i then have a 1/3 height message list on top right, and preview window below.
26692  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Living without AutoHotkey - possible? on: January 27, 2006, 01:37:33 AM
nice find cpilot.  is there a web page for this project where one might read more or is it all just in the forum?
26693  News and Reviews / Best E-mail Client / Re: The Bat - how to customize? on: January 27, 2006, 01:35:52 AM
sent mail and outbox is very useful distinction:
inthebat after you write a message you can either send it immediately or be smarted and just QUEUE IT in the out box.
this can be useful as it gives you a little time to catch yourself before you make a stupid mistake.
then when yousay send and mail is sent it moves from outbox to sent.

see my previous message also about how i create new folders in my accounts for different purposes.

there is a newsgroup+online archive at ritlabs somewhere that you can search - that may be the best way to search for answers to questions.

i always use preview pane so im not sure about other modes of reading - make sure you check out the different ways to arrange the different panes in the window - it may be that once you find a good layout of panes youll like using preview window better.
26694  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Possible slight bug. on: January 27, 2006, 01:31:52 AM
no please do post it - much appreciated.
26695  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Possible slight bug. on: January 27, 2006, 01:17:39 AM
you are absoluletly right - as to the cause as well.
i incorrectly adjusted IE window capture assuming their was a horiz+vert scrollbar; i'll try to have it fixed by next week.
26696  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Possible slight bug. on: January 27, 2006, 01:15:22 AM
posting in the bugtracker is always very helpful to me.
actually all my tests on scrolling may have been with windows that have horizontal scroll, so let me test your scenario.
26697  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Possible slight bug. on: January 27, 2006, 12:33:57 AM
what web browser are you using? this might be a good time to have alternate browsers like firefox, ie, opera.
let me know which ones work and i might be able to come up with an exception rule or fix for it.

we've actually been working on cmc a lot off an on.
and i am ABOUT to release a beta of Launch Bar Commander any day now.
(Launch Bar Commander is the precursor to context menu commander sharing the same core code, and will be one of at least 2 and possibly 3 or 4 apps that we release build on the same engine).  Thmbsup
