26926  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?

26928  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot for Minicap mentions Miniflash on: February 11, 2006, 03:14:11 AM
im not sure why anyone would have a use for it, but if so:
http://www.donationcoder....p/downloads/MiniFlash.zip


I did forget to mention the main reason it was made, in addition to wanting to avoid the titlebar and menu of the flash player, is that the macromedia flash player is incapable of accepting commandline arguments, which this little tool can do.


Quote
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
MiniFlash.exe - Mini Flash Player
Version 1.00.01 / Jan 24, 2006
mouser@donationcoder.com

 Designed to show a flash movie in a minimal window of a specific size, with
 specific title, and launched with flash variable arguements.  This last part
 is key, since the normal flash player from macromedia doesn't seem to be
 able to set variables.
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------



//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage:
   MiniFlash.exe fullfilename argstring width height scalemode "title caption"

   for example:
    MiniFlash.exe "c:\myflashfile.swf" "arg1=1&arg2=2" 640 480 0 "my flash!"

   scalemode is from macromedia and should be a number as follows:
    0 - ShowAll, 1 - NoBorder, 2 - ExtractFit, 3 - NoScale, 4- Low
    5 - AutoLow, 6 - AutoHight, 7 - Hight, 8 - Best, 9 - AutoMedium
    10 - Medium

  the common scalemodes are 0 for normal display that preserves aspect ratio
  and 2 for fit to window and stretch (aspect ratio not preserved)

26930  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Qslice... app to show cpu usage by process in a visual format, including threads on: February 11, 2006, 03:08:06 AM
ram might be more interesting to look at - my experience is that cpu useage is very often just one or 2 programs using the cpu, and everything else < 1%, but as brotherS if you averaged it over some period it might be interesting.
26931  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Categorized "Best Of" Software Lists, suggestion for a new section on: February 11, 2006, 03:06:59 AM
i kind of like this idea..
but i think a few modifications might be in order..
what if we had a child board of the reviews or mini reviews section, entitled "What's the Best Software to do this task"
something like that.

in that section, each thread would be titled like "What's the Best .. Data Recovery Utility"

in that thread people would post their opinions of what is best.

a new in that thread post about a new program would include screenshot, short description, link to website, price.

other posts can be from people agreeing or disagreeing and saying why, or adding their choice of best.

i think that while voting is fun, in this case i think it might not be all that useful and would be to inviting for abuse.
i'm actually not a huge fan of rating sites, i just feel like its begging for someone to manipulate the scores by creating multiple accounts - i much prefer to rely on people actually posting replies with their views as comments.

it would also be harder to maintain accurate voting lists, etc.

this way, its still a good way to look for opinions on each category, and we can also link to other posts on the forum about the different programs.

opinions?

26934  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot for Minicap mentions Miniflash on: February 10, 2006, 06:39:26 PM
hehehe, i wondered if anyone would catch that.

miniflash is a tiny captionless flash player wrapper, whose only purpose is to allow you to launch a flash movie at a specific size with a custom caption in the minimalist titlebar, and then capture it with minicap and then close it.  it was written by request from someone who needs it for that purpose.

26937  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: download spelling dictoniaries for other languages here on: February 10, 2006, 04:13:11 PM
what i want to know is, why do people find it impossible to follow my guideliness just because my instructions are totally wrong?
can't you people figure out what i mean to type instead of listening to what i actually say  !!

in other words - i goofed up!!  embarassed

i posted the dictionary page for the OLD VERSION of the spellchecker, not the new version!

The PROPER download page for dictionaries are here:


there you will download a .zip for the language of your choice.

extract the .adm file from inside the zip, and put it into the Clipboard Help+Spell\Dictionaries directory.

then exit and restart clipboard help and spell (make sure you exit and not just minimize to tray) and it will automatically detect any new dictionaries.

do i sense someone volunteering to do a full review of virtual desktop tools.. got some donated copies of virtual pc to give away in the mail today..
26939  DonationCoder.com Software / Dr.Windows / Re: Can someone help on: February 10, 2006, 01:04:11 PM
the easiest way is, go to the drwindows subdirectory called Dialogs.

usually in C:\Program Files\DrWidows\Dialogs

there you will find tons of .cfg files.

each one is a plain text file describing a dialog.

just open them in a text editor like notepad, modify them and save them with a new filename ending in .cfg, and that's all you have to do.

you can test then from the drwindows options page.
26940  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Per-Object Smoothing on: February 10, 2006, 12:02:25 PM
ah ok, now that makes more sense - you want antialias with some objects and not others..
would you mind adding that to the bugtracker so i wont forget to try to implement it?
26941  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Per-Object Smoothing on: February 10, 2006, 11:34:03 AM
there shouldnt be any smoothing on copy and paste (other than at display time)..
check transparency option though..
26942  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best Executable Compressor Programs on: February 10, 2006, 11:18:48 AM
my impression is people prefer having the smaller executables, and that it can actually be faster to load from disk.
if people prefer non-compressed i could go back to that.
26943  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best Executable Compressor Programs on: February 10, 2006, 10:38:07 AM
i agree with db (who makes pecompact, the tool we use at donationcoder).  picking a compressor by choosing one that makes slightly smaller files than other would be a bad mistake (compatibility on different platforms would probably be my number 1 concern).

recent pecompact/bitsum (www.bitsum.com) email from february 8:

Quote
We hope that PECompact is continuing to suit your needs. We rarely send out product news, so we hope you are as excited to receive this news as we are
to send it.

The last few months have brought a long list of product improvements, far more than we can list here. A summary of a few of the more important changes
is below:

+ Support for resource-only DLLs (ones with no entry point)
These DLLs are common in the industry. PECompact is proud to be one of the first executable packers to fully support them.

+ New 'Restore Imports' option
This feature allows external applications to more easily hook API imports in your compressed modules. This is usually done to extend or modify API
behavior at run-time. One example is ATI display drivers, which hook the imports of OpenGL applications. This option is enabled by default to ensure
the widest possible compatibility.

+ An important fix for 'Enforce Memory Protections' (/emp:y).
For customers who utilize this non-default feature that sets the virtual memory access permissions to those indicated by the original section table,
we recommend upgrading to the latest version of PECompact. Don't worry, there is usually no need to re-release your compressed applications. For more
information on this fix, please visit our forums or email us at support@bitsum.com.

+ New 'Trim Memory' option
This option temporarily trims the working set after a compressed module has been decompressed. This will cause almost all virtual memory in the
process space to be paged out. Of course, as the pages are referenced again, they are paged back in. While it is usually best to let the virtual memory
manager do its job without interference, this can reduce the initial physical memory use of your application.

+ Compression ratio improvements
Compression ratios have been improved a bit across the board. With a re-written LZMA codec and new options like 'Truncate Last Section', you can make
sure your modules are as small possible.

+ GUI improvements and new languages
The enhanced GUI is now available in English, Russian, Chinese, German, Dutch, French, Swedish, Italian, Slovenian, Polish, and Japanese!

+ An assortment of other minor changes and fixes
We've made so many improvements and bug fixes that it's more practical to just download the new version and see for yourself!

In addition to the improvements we've made to PECompact, we've also made many improvements to Bitsum Technologies. Come see what we have to offer in
2006!

For those wondering, PE+ (PE64) support is coming to PECompact in the near future! When we've got this new capability fully release ready, we'll send out another notification like this.

ohhh

here's a free one i liked, virtuawin: http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/
with fun icons for displaying the current desktop: http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/

i assigned alt+1 through alt+9 to nine different desktops - worked great.
26945  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: VBA (Excel) - Natural Sort Add-In on: February 10, 2006, 09:02:58 AM
looks wonderful for those who code excel.

one suggestion: zip it up with your excellent post comments as a readme.txt

the forum will accept zip attachments and it will be helpful for people to have the readme as a file.

anderson, if you're interested i can post a little tutorial about how i build all the donationcoder.com installers so that they are both zip compatible for manual extraction or runnable directly as setup programs.  to me its the best of both worlds.
