26901  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / DONE: "Stop Me From Closing It" - prevent easy closing of a program on: December 18, 2005, 09:02:48 PM
Sometimes i have a web page open in my browser or something, and i want to leave it open for a while (like a few hours).
but i inevitably forget and at some point end up closing the program while tidying up the desktop.

i wonder if it wouldnt be possible to have a tray based program that let me sort of "lock" and "unlock" a running program,
which would just remove its "close" button maybe (it'd be nice of the close menu was gone from taskbar right click menu too).

so i'm not looking for some high security thing, just a way to prevent casual closing in a moment of forgetfullness.

ps. this might be a stupid request  undecided

just a reminder to everyone that you can show your appreication to skrommel by making a direct donation to him from his "1-hour software page."

(ps. even if a specific program isn't exactly what you need, supporting his efforts can only help us all when our time comes to need a little skrommel utility smiley

thats not a bad idea at all to use javascript embedded on an html page.

but i will definitely add it to the todo list.

quick paste is a "virtual" group that defines which clips appear in the quick paste menu (shown when you hit the hotkey to paste text into an application, ctrl+alt+q by default).

by default the quick paste group contains clips added in the last hour or so and also any clips in your database marked as favorites, but you can modify this by modifying the quick paste group.

i've uploaded a beta version, 1.04.01, which handles pages completely differently and is much more capable of handling big job efficiently.

v1.04.01 - 12/18/05
[new feature] Completely rewrote previewing code to support very large documents (removed thumbnail panel); now printout and previewing of large documents is very practical.
[new feature] You can now access your printer's extra configuration preferences before printing.
[help improved] Added instructions on how to print to pdf files for offsite printing.

Cliff, what do you think about using one of these banners or something similar for linking from any review back to its original post on donationcoder.com forum/site?

Happy to make modifications to it to make it fit better with your site - it'd just be nice if we had a prominent link back to the post here with our new mascot smiley

good point, you'd have to be clever about it since you can't overwrite a file in use, but it would be nice and convenient and so worth the trouble i think.

i would suggest something like this: you double click the file it just runs and displays the contents; nothing special.
you can then make changes and change pass if you want and choose 2 options, Save or Save As.  If you choose Save As, it just creates a new encrypted exe file with a new name.  If you choose Save, it should run some tricks to replace itself:

For example it could do something like this using commandline args to trigger.:
  • create a temp file with some new temporary name with new contents
  • exit the current program while launching new temporary one with special commandline arg of current filename
  • the new temporary one wil overright the existing file with its own new content.
  • the temporary one would then once again call the new replaced final exe with commandline arg to delete the temporary.

yes, it's a bit of work but not too hard, and would make a very nice standalone encrypted exe self-contained editor.
26913  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA - encrypted-SFX-EXE to see secret text on: December 17, 2005, 12:00:17 PM
this seems like a useful idea -
but, relating to fodder's question,i  suggest that you NOT make it read only.

i.e. when you double click the exe and enter your password, it should show the contents in a window where you can now edit the contents and change password and RESAVE it.

just a little caveat warning from me:
choosing a content management system is an important decision because it can be very hard to switch to a different one later.  so you really need to be confident that whatever you choose is a viable longterm choice.
26916  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: URL List to Favorites on: December 16, 2005, 06:15:47 PM
it sould be nice to have a little util that could take a list of urls (maybe from clipboard also?) and add them to IE, or Firefox (or Opera?) Favorites.

i was not a big fan of myst - it was too sterile for me.
although the mechanics of simple clicks are the same, to me the nice part about samarost2 was the personality and feeling of real creatures.
26918  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Samorost - beautiful puzzles on: December 16, 2005, 04:05:45 PM
for people who are new to adventure games who like samarost and who are looking for a whole new world of enjoyment, try looking at something like "The Longest Journey": http://www.longestjourney.com/
(note you don't play this online, you buy and install)

this is a full complex game, that will take you weeks to finish, but may be more rewarding.

adventure games are starting to die out but for many of us they were the height of enjoyment.

i think i know the cause of this - it is likely related to an item being in the recent folder that refers to a network resource.  this causes a delay.  it will be fixed in the next release which will be in january.
