beautiful work nudone!
a must have accessory for hardcore dc'ers.

ps.
you can use the bigger screensaver ini for the desktop too right?
26908  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: "Mail and/or RSS reader" screensaver? on: February 12, 2006, 02:15:19 PM
works great here!!
yes i got same error on first use and not after that.

One thing - its set to update the RSS feed every 100 seconds - that's really pretty high and could be a drain on the server if everyone leaves it at that.  can i suggest that future versions set default poll rate to once every 5 or 15 minutes?

26910  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: First discoveries/Customizations on: February 12, 2006, 10:34:19 AM
ill try to answer in pieces.

one easy way to do #3 is that any clip marked as a "favorite" will show up in the quick paste menu, so that's an easy way to  have your favorites in the quick menu paste.

i think a) points out that i really need to save options after they have been modified rather than on shutdown, for the reasons you say.

can you describe 1 more?

I like the idea of putting cody the bird next to the rss feed!

agree - that's the best part  Wink

26913  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software with odd or insane license plans. on: February 12, 2006, 04:41:03 AM
i think insane is a good description.

i mean if you want to stop giving updates after 6 months, ok whatever, not cool but im not going to call you insane.
but to say that after 6 months you have to stop using a local drawing program unless you pay a license renewal fee, that's just wrong.

IT: Microsoft Anti-Spyware Removes Norton Anti-Virus
 An anonymous reader writes "According to a story over at Washingtonpost.com, the latest definitions file for Microsoft's Anti-Spyware beta flags Symantec's Norton Antivirus products as a password-stealing trojan and prompts users to delete portions of the program. Users who follow the instructions hose their installation of Norton, requiring delicate Windows registry edits and a complete removal/reinstall of Norton. Microsoft's support forum is quickly filling up with complaints about this problem, many from businesses that have been pretty hard hit. This should be a cautionary tale about deploying beta products in production environments."

this is a good opportunity to point out something.
check the entbloess"affiliates" page:  http://www.entbloess.com/index.php?page=affiliates

people can get 40% of the price of entbloess when someone buys entbloess by following a special affiliate link.

this is where an email to entbloess from one of you to that company could really come in handy.

here is how i usually put it to a company, something like this:
"we don't want any comissions on sales - we only ask that you offer a generous discount to members of our forum, larger than the normal affiliate price - because since there is no affiliate fee you have to pay, you are bound to get more customers"

and point them to this thread where the discussion is already on such tools.

it's a great opportunity for a company to offer a 50% discount to our members and they are bound to make quite a few sales especially if they act while the discussion is active; and 50% discounts on programs discussed in threads like this with praise from trusted members will get mentioned in the newsletter which means lots of people reading this thread,etc.  [i highly recommend to all companies a 50% discount like most of our discounts, but the rule we have adopted is at least 30% or don't bother, and it has to be more than any affilliate fee for reasons i discussed above].

so in short - do everyone a favor and if you find a program you like enough to talk about and purchase - why not send them an email, tell them your a fan, point them to the thread on the forum and ask them about offering a discount to our members.  it's a much better deal for them then these affiliate things they all run.

might mention that we always ask if they are willing to donate a few free copies for us to give away, which is just a nice gesture that most companies are more than happy to do.

they can always contact me directly if they want to talk more (mouser@donationcoder.com), but having a real user contact them first makes a huge difference, much better than me trying to convince them it's a good idea.

make it a new rule - before you buy any program you like, contact the author and discuss the possibility of them offering a discount to our members!


[this goes for topdesk as well of course, which also looks very nice]

26918  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: BatchFTP on: February 11, 2006, 04:34:27 PM
brilliant.

as you say:

BatchFTP is built around the idea that you're going to upload the same files more than once and it is streamlined to support this ideology.
it seems if one has this kind of scenario this might be the perfect tool.
(i might have to buy this myself).

my eyes feel like they are bleeding by the time i go to sleep - that's what you get from 10yr old crts that need their brightness turned up to 100.

but on the other hand, how else would i know when to go to sleep if it weren't for my eyes stopping to work?

i could probably add this to process tamer without much trouble.
26925  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Categorized "Best Of" Software Lists, suggestion for a new section on: February 11, 2006, 05:55:53 AM
when a new program is posted in a category thread we could add it to the first post in the thread so that the first thread would be a list off all the programs so far nominated..

there are no doubt advantages to a nicely organized and maintained section, but the overhead in maintaining it is hard, and there is some benefit to just letting people post their opinions - no need to deal with nominating, etc.

maybe this is something well suited for the wiki?
