26877  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Addition to ScreenShot Captor or stand-alone tool on: February 26, 2006, 02:02:57 AM
i would really like to collect some tools to add to the screenshot captor tool menu, like an ftp tool, a web page post tool, and an image upload tool for sites like imageshack etc.

picking out individual pictures on a website is a cool idea.. but could be very tricky..

i think we still first have to make more fundamental decision about whether we want to present the reviews using some kind of content management system or something that would handle things like presenting it in multiple pages or one page for printing, etc.
26881  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: early screenshots on: February 24, 2006, 02:00:30 PM
thanks ms, i hope to have a beta version ready next week.
it still has a long way to go before it can be said to be better than existing tools, but i'm very happy with the foundation of the code, and i hope we can make it great in time.

you can minimize any dock to the tray as well and just access it as a menu:

nothing fancy to get excited about, just plain launch bar, but hopefully the functionality is where it will shine eventually.

there's one way to know that that video is fake, and anyone who has been through this should be able to spot it..

where are the alternating stages of grief?

usually its the pure anger interspersed with almost crying and begging and pleading to god to put you out of your misery..

26892  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Article on Borland/Delphi/C++ Builder split-off on: February 23, 2006, 04:49:19 PM
Borland recently announced they are going to sell their development products (Delphi, C++ Builder,etc) to another company.

Many of the big programs on this site (Screeenshot Captor for example), are made with C++ Builder, and I am a very big fan of the tool, which can make building big windows gui apps a joy compared to lower level windows user interface coding.

Interview with Borland on the split-off:  http://www.adtmag.com/article.asp?id=17981

ps.
I think we will be having a c++ builder contest sponsored by borland in the upcoming months..  stay tuned!
26893  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: Revitalizing the Reviews - Everyone Read in Please on: February 23, 2006, 04:04:59 PM
great question.
since we are trying to improve the layout, i have asked reviewers to simply write their reviews in anything they like, word, notepad, etc. but do NOT do any formatting.  ie dont bold, center, justify,etc. take screenshots but either just add them simply to the text or just add a link like [screenshot1.gif goes here].  do not use hard linebreaks to format text to 78 characters, use a text editor that supports wordwrap.

in other words, write it in something that will make it easier for us to format for final output when we determine the final output formats.

26896  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Move Installed programs from one drive to another. on: February 23, 2006, 11:43:27 AM
there are programs designed specifically for moving installed software from one place to another.. can't remember names off hand but they do exist.  maybe someone else can think of some, otherwise i will try to remember.

having said that, it's always somewhat of a crapshoot, and you should give strong consideration to uninstall then reinstall in desired location.

For example, I just came back from training for a specific Electrical Engineering software called SKM (which I was really impressed with from a software standpoint, I'd write a review, but no one would care here!) and this software costs thousands of dollars.  Just imagine, if an open source program came out that was truly as good as this program, this entire company would be out of business...and quickly at that!


this is definitely getting off topic, but i'd just like to add that i disagree with this.

i'm learning more and more over time about the price that has to be put on TIME and SUPPORT.

it seems that companies who buy these thousand dollar software products are buying the support system associated with a company as much as they are buying the software itself.  maybe someone like sentinel who does enterprise level purchasing can jump in here, but it seems to me that a company would rather pay $5000 for some software and be confident that if they have a problem they will be able to pick up the phone and get some tech support, than pay $0 and then end up with no one to contact for help.

this is why youll see a lot of the open source business models that are basically all about suppot.  the software is free, but you can buy a support contract for major money..

oh wow, awesome post!  some great stuff there.
crossplatform c++ coders might be interested in the wxwidgets and qt books.

(yes, this is the right section for it.)
