26926  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Farr's ADDNOTE on: March 13, 2006, 05:55:06 AM
it'll be clearer when i make the demo movie, but basically,
it lets you keep a text file of quick notes, and add a note by bringing up farr and typing like:
addnote remember to buy red wine

that would add a timestamped entry in a plain text file with that text.

you could add aliases for different files, etc. like you could add
idea paint the room green
to have it add a (timestamped) note to a specific todo.txt file

and of course you could add other aliases to open the files, etc.

so basically its just a really quick and dirty way to use farr to help you keep note files.

wonderful -
and i'm glad you mentioned the find+undo stuff missing from fsekrit, as i had forgotten about those,
and now this should spur on f0dder to add those plus the other minor missing things he needs to add (including unicode) to make fsekrit the very best.  maybe wait a few days to give f0dder a chance to add them before publishing?
26932  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Farr's ADDNOTE on: March 12, 2006, 11:02:41 PM
working great so far (no pun intended).

in fact this is something that i think is so useful that im going to make a video demo movie of the latest farr and show it being used along with calc.

i have 3 requests though if possible:
1) make it parse all commandline arguments (ie until no more args starting with -); that way we can do addnote -top -clip blah blah
2) the first argument should be filename (or make it work like -file "filenamegoeshere"); this is very important, since people need to be able to specify custom files and where they should go.
3) the use of _ for newlines is not good; can we use the standard \n please?

26933  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Farr's ADDNOTE on: March 12, 2006, 10:52:41 PM
let me try it and report.. i think this will make a kickass addon for FARR.

yeah i got down to all black - there are some big orange creatures down there that will eat you and pop you up a level..
(ps. for those that haven't read the help for the game, you eat the (+) things to go deeper and (-) to go up, so me and deozaan are eating (+) to go as deep down in the "pond" as possible):


i haven't tried going "up" as far as possible.. i'll bet there are different creatures up there.
26935  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: The new forum is up!! on: March 12, 2006, 10:35:57 PM
deozaan, i'll look into this a bit - i can't see why it should be using anything other that info stored in your forum profile (ie cookies shouldn't matter), but i know that keeping track of unread posts is a bit iffy.

i have a new minor version i've been playing with and i tweaked the process detection for explicit rules a little; it should be up in a week or so - there reallly is no excuse for it missing programs you have explicit rules for so if it continues to have the problem let me know and we'll get it fixed.

26942  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / sneak peek article with pictures on googles upcoming payment system on: March 12, 2006, 09:11:11 AM

A few weeks ago here on Techcrunch we revealed more information about Google’s new payments system along with some screenshots of how it looks and works. One of the questions at the time was what Google would do about buyers being able to check a sellers reputation before making a purchase. We can now reveal that Google have built a reputation system that allows buyers to rate sellers and leave comments.

26945  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Putting the fun in functional - connections between games and other apps on: March 12, 2006, 12:48:28 AM

From Ralph Koster's reliably good blog (
Amy Jo Kim has a great presentation from ETech called Putting the Fun in Functional that not only articulates how to use some of the fundamental building blocks of games for other purposes, but calls out in stark form what some of those principles are.
This is valuable because often, we take them for granted — when really, we should be focused very strongly on making sure these fundamentals are nailed correctly. (Which echoes a blog post that I read this morning on a blog by Kathy Sierra that Amy Jo pointed to as well — but really, you should read that whole blog too)…
Many of them boil down to forms of feedback, but critically, there’s two important forms of user expression as well: customization, and the ability to give fedback to one another, creating a social context.
26946  Other Software / Developer's Corner / The Evolution of Software Development - blog article with cool illustrations on: March 12, 2006, 12:36:33 AM

a little diagram on a napkin that explains concisely how modern software development works. In the grand finale, I circle one of the little scribbles buried deep in the entire convoluted process and proudly proclaim ‘And that is what I do!”. This admittedly selfish exercise usually keeps everyone involved merrily entertained until dessert arrives.

I know we have quite a few people on this forum interested in accessibility and technology for visually impaired, etc.
Anyone have any sites they like?

Someone emailed me recently about this site:

It has some articles on screen readers and new hardware, etc.

Axistive Assistive Technology News Portal offers free news, articles, product reviews and all product and vendor information of assistive technology devices.

26950 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Startup on task bar and sys tray bug on: March 11, 2006, 10:03:56 PM
by default screenshot captor will attempt to auto-select the window that was currently active when you captured the screen.  so what you are doing is taking advantage of this - by hitting crop it is cropping to the active window.

ps. you can configure a screenshot capture hotkey to explicitly capture the active window if you want to save yourself a step.

SO, the cases where you are saying it "fails" to select the right sized region are probably cases where you are not actually "in" the active window.  so to do what you want, just make sure the window you care about is active (selected) at the time of the capture.
