yeah i think its important everyone involved in this makes clear: carol+philkc are not interested in illegal numbers, but rather just a way of keeping track of their own legally owned software information.

maybe philkc you should think about making it more general, not just for keeping serials but any info related to a specific program (forum url, hints on use, etc.)

hehehe - maybe we should keep this thread about QuickFolders and give wasker a minute to breath before peppering him with autohotkey stuff smiley

maybe its a browser thing (what browser are you using?)

works fine here.
do you mean its not poping up a window for you or do you mean its not finding spelling errors?
26906  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: A warm HELLO from XFilesDialog authors to all DonationCoders ! on: December 01, 2005, 08:23:16 AM

It's great to see your post, and congratulations on XFilesDialog.

Discount info for XFilesDialog and other tools from xdesksoftware can be found in this post: http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1657.0

As I've said to the other developers, it's always a great thing to see when a developer is actually interested in their users and in getting ideas to improve the program - for me that can make all the difference in the world when deciding which program to purchase.

Welcome to the site!
26907  Special User Sections / General Review Discussion / Re: For future reviews it might be interesting ... on: December 01, 2005, 07:19:28 AM
absolutely - in fact we now do two-part reviews, so the first overview of programs goes up 1 week ahead of time and we encourage our members to comment on programs and recommend others we may have missed.  the more user involvement the better and i hope eventually we get to a point where we can have enough member involvement in the reviews that readers get a nice broad opinion from different users.

right now, the most important role that members have served in reviews is helping us correct mistakes and make sure we don't miss programs the reviewer might not have heard of.  but i would like to encourage more member participation in the reviews.. maybe we can think of ways to encourage it more.
26908  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / to the dialog box extender developers - two ideas i really liked on: December 01, 2005, 05:23:27 AM
in trying the dialog box extenders, i came across two ideas i really liked that are worth implementing:

1) DirectFolders has a menu item in its button that will jump to the home directory of the application you are in - VERY useful.
2) File-Ex has a built in file search function that will let you search the current directory and then select a file from the results - VERY useful.

anyone else have any new ideas for these tools?
26909  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: NEW SITE FEATURE: Bug Tracker + Feature Request System on: December 01, 2005, 04:44:46 AM
i have to say i've been quite happy with mantis; it may be a tiny bit of overkill for us here but it's definitely a very nice thing.

i do have to say that the very fact of having a bug tracker has made much more of a positive difference than i expected.  having a central list of bugs to be fixed really helps focus attention on them and keep track of them.  i definitely recommend a bug tracker for any non-trivial project.
26910  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: Horizontal scrolling on: November 30, 2005, 06:48:35 PM
miles, as i was updating the review to reflect awarding of file-ex, i noticed that it is the program that has an option to remember columns widths - you might want to try it and see if it works for you.
26911  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Review updated: File-Ex added to best-in-class list (and discount avail.) on: November 30, 2005, 06:39:35 PM
I've updated the review and moved File-Ex to the best-in-class list to tie with the other three already there.


File-Ex makers showed me how to get it to work with MS Office, and though it requires an extra step, it does work well, and combined with the unique and very nice file finder, and good price, i felt it warranted being awarded best-in-class.
26912  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Quick Serial Number Copy on: November 30, 2005, 05:50:25 PM
perhaps what would be nicer would be a hotkey based app which grabbed the process name of current window when hotkey was pressed, and searched for a serial number in some file based on the process/application name, and pasted it in.
26913  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: RealPlayer or RealAlternative? on: November 30, 2005, 04:40:22 PM
RealPlayer is very well behaved on my system, once you configure it properly.
if you listen often to live streams and stuff i would think twice about replacing it with the real alternative stuff.
26914  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: Horizontal scrolling on: November 30, 2005, 04:10:14 PM
it's an excellent idea, and one of the tools might already support horizontal "autofit" .. i wish i hadn't uninstalled them all already; i'll have to remember to keep them installed for longer for questions like this.

you might be able to find the answer just by visiting the websites; look for something like autofit or column sizing.  and let us know what you find, please.  could be very useful if you have long filename.  (though if you just set the width of the dialog very large it should solve most of your problem).
26915  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: Horizontal scrolling on: November 30, 2005, 03:54:28 PM
great question.

all of ones marked as "expands dialog" will let you make the dialogs very wide, which will mostly solve your problem.

if i remember correctly, at least one of the programs has an option to remember the column widths, which would let you force the leftmost column to be not so wide, but i don't remember which Sad

if you can find the one that best solves your particular problem let me know.

26917  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Upload a picture to image hosting service on: November 30, 2005, 01:02:47 PM
it shouldn't be too much harder than using wget, however the tool needs to check for the url returned by the image hosting service and report it (or copy it to clipboard), or display an error if upload was unsuccessful.

good point - i'll add that to the review; i happen to be a big fan of powerdesk actually.
26920  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Upload a picture to image hosting service on: November 30, 2005, 10:35:19 AM
im interested in a commandline tool that could upload an image file specified on the commandline to one of the image hosting services (like http://www.imageshack.us/) , and reports back the url to the uploaded file.

how i would use this:
i'd like to add it to screenshot captor tool menu.

another great example of bill gates software:

it WILL let my program change important registry entries which changes your default browser.
it WONT let my program simply make a copy of existing registry settings to a file for backup.

26923  DonationCoder.com Software / ProcessTamer / Process Tamer - LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - v2.11.01 - Apr 23, 2009 on: November 30, 2005, 08:15:48 AM
Download from Program Web Page or Main Release Page.


v2.11.01 - 4/23/09
  • Live update of cpu usage is disabled while changing rules -- avoids problem where grid updating disrupts the modification of rules.

v2.10.01 - 3/27/09 beta
  • Added support for the ConfigDir.ini file (allows setting custom directories for config files; better Vista and portable use).
  • Updated manifests to insist on administrative rights (needed for Vista and later).
  • Fixed issues in vista and with large fonts.
  • Packaged more recent dcuhelper.exe update helper.
  • Changed start-with-windows process to use registry instead of startup group.
  • The programmers who designed Vista should be shot -- they have made it virtually impossible for me to make Process Tamer start with windows.  Vista insists on blocking it at startup.
  • Fixed some hints and tab order in the Configuration dialog.
  • Increased size of Min. Change Interval option.

v2.09.01 - 8/18/07
  • Added support for update checking
  • Compiled with manifest to force ProcessTamerTray to run with elevated administrator mode on Microsoft VISTA, which is needed in order to reduce process priorities.

v2.08.01 - 10/08/06
  • Process view now remembers sorting order.
  • Stopped pointless announcing about increasing it's own priority.


v2.07.02 - 10/02/06
  • Added advanced killing for processes that resisted termination in the past.   

v2.06.01 - 9/18/06
  • Code added to enable Process Tamer to control priorities of stubborn services (for example winlogon.exe, etc). 
  • Added tips+troubleshooting help page.   

v2.05.02 - 05/11/06
  • [documentation] help file now fully up to date with current pictures and help and tips
  • [new feature] you can now independently turn on/off balloon tray message for taming by cpu use, untaming by cpu usage, and priority adjustment by explicit rules
  • [new feature] foreground process boosting option.
  • [new feature] foreground process protection option.
  • [new feature] option to run PT always at high priority (prevents other apps from being evil)
  • [minor improvement] option to hide < 1% processes now doesn't hide non-normal priorities
  • [cosmetic bugfix] configuration form checkbox was displaying where it should not.

v2.03.01 - 12/22/05
  • [new feature] you can now toggle on/off the taming of processes by cpu use (i.e. only use explicit rules if you prefer)

v2.02.01 - 11/25/05 - Maintenance Release
  • [bugfix] rare bug was causing sequence of error message in the GUI configurator tool if left running for long periods.
  • [bugfix] apps sending timer broadcasts could confused process tamer and cause it to start taming apps prematurely.
  • [new feature] option to automatically remove processes with <1% usage from task monitor after a small delay.
  • this is a minor release but fixes some bugs that i thought should be addressed.

Can you monitor how long people look for ... how long is considered abuse ?

no, abuse would be:
someone wants to share a 2mb zip file with 500,000 people so they attach it to a post, and post the link to the forum attachment all over the internet.
26925  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: RAM and CPU usage? on: November 30, 2005, 06:12:27 AM
shouldn't use any cpu.. as for ram.. 900k in memory (6.3mb private, 41mb total according to taskinfo)
