26901  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: PROGRAMMING CONTEST: Write an open source mod for SMF forum on: December 26, 2005, 11:04:54 PM
to summarize the approach i think seems most common and appropriate. the basic idea is that the smf login is the authoritative login.

  • smf has a helper php file SSI.php which you can include from any other php script (mantis and mediawiki are both php).
  • after including that you can easily get the users name and 'member group' in smf.
  • if the user is not logged into smf, and they want to log in to mediawiki or mantis, you should try to sign them into smf.
  • if they are logged into smf, you should synchronize their smf login with their mediawiki or mantis login.
  • this may amount to creating a new login at mediawiki or mantis if none exists, or changing their mediawiki/mantis group if their smf group is different (rare), and then logging them into their mediawiki or mantis account.

heheh nope. vrgrll should add her comments here, she owns virtually every game system ever made and can clearly lay out the benefits of each smiley

most game review sites are so loaded with popups its insane. i used to read ign till they went to this paid subscription thing and that was it for me.

note that these are not normal modern audio books; i think most are older public domain, and some independent narrated book (which actually could be quite interesting).  if you like newer released audio books you should also check out www.audible.com.

i love the zen of #9 on that page you linked dajo:
[9] This is a good plan for life in general. If you have two choices, choose the harder. If you're trying to decide whether to go out running or sit home and watch TV, go running. Probably the reason this trick works so well is that when you have two choices and one is harder, the only reason you're even considering the other is laziness. You know in the back of your mind what's the right thing to do, and this trick merely forces you to acknowledge it.

i love the zen of this.. but it does seem a bit like a recipe for trouble in some cases.. let's remember the KISS addage (keep it simple stupid) - if you have two choices and one is more complicated than the other, better have a damn good reason for not going with the simple solution.

i'm not a gamer - i might play a little bit of 1 computer game every couple years (though i used to play adventure games quite a bit).

i still love reading game reviews though, and i'm fascinated especially by the new kinds of games coming out.

recently i've been reading the reviews on www.eurogamer.net, which i find really pleasently written and full of obvious care and love of gaming.  some examples:

if anyone wants me to add some text entries for useful text or links that they find themselves using repeatedly, or which they think others might find useful, post a reply here to suggest it.

ps. i added this feature because i was always posting links from other sites and being too lazy to include a full link back to that site; this should help solve that problem.

I've added a new drop down box available when you make a post with some common text+links that people might want to add to their posts, to make it easier to do so.. useful for linking back to common sites (ie it's easy to add the following links now by just selecting from the dropdown box):

yeah, it seems it would solve your problem.   if that test program works then a version of url snooper which used that driver would work.
26915  DonationCoder.com Software / UrlSnooper / Re: WinPcap makes my DSL not work? on: December 25, 2005, 08:12:54 PM
ok, i may try to integrate this new driver into urlsnooper in an upcoming versoin in january.  i will try.
26916  DonationCoder.com Software / UrlSnooper / Re: WinPcap makes my DSL not work? on: December 25, 2005, 08:04:08 PM
sorry i wasn't clearer.
dont install urlsnooper - this has nothing to do with that - it's just a test program.

just click open and surf around the internet and see if this program shows any activity.

the only purpose of running this is to see whether this tool can monitor your internet traffic.

can you download and try to run this app after you have fixed your computer again:

it uses an alternative network drive that does not install anything.  let me know if it works.
i've been considering for a while whether to add support for this alternative network sniffing driver, so i'm interested in hearing whether it works.  if so, perhaps i will try to add support for it.

this isn't quite on topic but it's still cool:

Polyglot 3000 is an automatic language identifier that quickly recognizes the language of any text, phrase or even single words. It is available for Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP.

i like the last bit: "too much company produces with the useful disturbance of the fish."

indeed it does, that's always been my personal experience.
26921  DonationCoder.com Software / UrlSnooper / Re: WinPcap makes my DSL not work? on: December 25, 2005, 07:17:41 PM
hi lol -

i guess its possible that winpcap could be doing this.  certianly url snooper by itself wouldn't but it's possible that something in the winpcap install is causing it.

if you feel up to it what would be nice is if you could install the very latest winpcap alpha release here:

direct download is: http://www.winpcap.org/in...in/WinPcap_3_2_alpha1.exe

after you install, reboot once or twice and see if your network connection is still working.
if not, then we know its a winpcap problem and maybe the bug or announcement archives or faq for winpcap can help (see http://www.winpcap.org/contact.htm).

if your connection still works after installing the latest winpcap, then you should install url snooper after than but SKIP the winpcap part of the url snooper install when it gets to it (since you would already have a more recent version of winpcap installed at that point).

btw winpcap has a good uninstaller so you should be able to just uninstall it if it does happen to mess up your internet connection, rather than having to do a system restore.

I honestly never dared to hope that this site would become so full of such nice and interesting people so quickly.  To me it's been the most wonderful surprise.  It's made programming so much more enjoyable for me, and it's made me feel like I have a second home here.

I'm wishing all of you friends a happy holiday and a great new year.  I'm so very grateful to all of you for making this place what it is.

What can we do except look back at the past year and try to see if we can't make this next upcoming year even better, with new reviews, new software, more giveaways, more discounts, and more great conversations  smiley

But for now everyone get some rest.

26924  DonationCoder.com Software / Unfinished Requests / Re: Monitor Switcher on: December 24, 2005, 06:51:59 PM
that's an interesting idea - actually you might take it a bit further and say it would be nice to have a program that opened (or moved right after they open) windows to a blank location on the deskop when possible so as to avoid overlap of windows when they open.. does such an app exist yet?

i know there are some shareware apps that readjust and resize windows on command to fit on the desktop, inspired by a mac feature. can't remember what it's called.

might be nice to have an automatic one though.

i'm sure a free program to make this exists but i don't know of any off hand - i'm looking forward to a reply from someone who does.
