and another advantage of using a wiki for storing info about the alternative programs is it would be easier for people to add info after the review goes live.

garnet - i just visited your site - i love the collages!
are those your pieces?
26932  DonationCoder.com Software / ProcessTamer / Re: priority settings question 2 on: October 25, 2005, 10:09:09 AM
again, a video editing pro will be able to talk for hours about tweaks and optimizations,

but the simplest path to best gain in performance wrt hard drives is probably just to have 2 so that your temp files are on a separate drive from working files, or so that you can have source on one drive and target file on another.  and having a very fast drive (sata would be nice) would make a big difference as well.
26933  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Some problems on: October 25, 2005, 08:29:40 AM
quick update, #1 and #2 above have been fixed, will be in next version updated today; looking at other problems now.
26934  DonationCoder.com Software / Mouser's Zone / Bug Tracker - How to Submit Bug Reports and Feature Requests on: October 25, 2005, 08:08:12 AM
We are going to install a bugtracker system at DonationCoder, to make it easy to submit and track bug reports and feature requests.
Anyone want to suggest their favorite (open source) tool for this?

Here's one brotherS was telling me about on irc channel, seems pretty good:

The tracker will be used by all software on our site and provide a uniform interface for tracking issues on all of our programs.

great post patteoks,
this ability to quickly add a bookmark with comments and keywords from the browser itself sounds like exactly the right way things shoud be done.
26936  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Send screenshot via email? on: October 25, 2005, 06:31:20 AM
blat looks very useful - thanks stefan!

i wonder if it would be better to have a util that sends it directly, or one that opens up the computer mail program and starts off a message.. i guess finding a solution for both methods would be nice..
26937  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Send screenshot via email? on: October 25, 2005, 12:28:06 AM
Before i write an email function to mail a screenshot to someone,
does anyone know of an existing commandline tool that could be configured using the tool menu?
26938  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Simpletidy - html cleaner on: October 24, 2005, 09:28:28 PM
for those of you who work on web pages, one of the more frustrating things is that there can be erros in the html code that makes it not quite up to standards compliance, and yet it looks ok to you in the browser, although you might have trouble in the future or in another browser.

here's a nice little freeware mentioned on fileforum today, Simpletidy:


sounds nice and simple and useful:
  • Cleans your HTML code
  • Convert your webpages to wellformed XHTML 1.0 strict
  • Cleans Microsoft code
  • Shows validation errors and warnings
  • Drag and drop from Explorer
  • Freeware

makes use of the open source htmltidy code, which is a good thing.  definitely a nice tool for your web design toolbox.
26939  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Some ideas to help do more full length reviews.. on: October 24, 2005, 07:40:19 PM
right, the wiki would not be the final review - i was only playing with the idea that as a group we could fill in pages for all the apps in the category, with different people adding info about each app and screenshots, and people adding opinions, and then one person writing the review proper, using the wiki as a kind of appendix of sorts...

the only thing this raises is again the same issue with the blogs and the issues raised with wikis in the past, and that is, would we be better off just using the forum for this.. and i think the answer may be yes..
26940  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Some ideas to help do more full length reviews.. on: October 24, 2005, 05:41:56 PM
hmm.. maybe we could use a wiki for this...
so that different people could add a different page for different apps in a category, with their opinions?
26941  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Carol Haynes First Column - Great read for new web site builders on: October 24, 2005, 04:11:11 PM
Please welcome Carol to the blog columns - her first post is a terrific discussion of getting started building websites:


really a great read  Thmbsup


not to plug this too much, but in the next week or two we will be pooling our money to provide cheap+superior web hosting for our members, so this is a great way to learn about the kinds of things you can do on a site and how to write and maintain your pages.

26942  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS - Program Goals on: October 24, 2005, 12:55:19 PM
i should say though that i find it does help me to keep talking about longterm goals and interface and organization, because it shapes design decisions earlier on.
26943  DonationCoder.com Software / ProcessTamer / Re: priority settings question 2 on: October 24, 2005, 12:45:04 PM
i'm not an expert in such things, but there are a few hardware things that you should consider:
1) make sure you have plenty of ram (1gb)
2) get yourself a nice hard disk for video; sata or scsi hd, separate from the operating system hard drive.
3) fast modern cpu.

keep in mind i dont have any experience in video editing, these are just some things that seem likely to me to yield the biggest payoff in terms of bang for the buck.
26944  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS - Program Goals on: October 24, 2005, 11:34:33 AM
stefan - cool new sc watermark smiley

try this great png optimizer for irfan view:
26945  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS - Program Goals on: October 24, 2005, 11:33:35 AM
I figured it would be easier to get the backbone in place, then work on the clipboard stuff

this is generally true kfitting, but in this case i think its most important to get these features in asap even if it means a little more work later to move the clipboard stuff to a more independent module.

stefan - yes exactly, an easy paste screen is on the short list.
26946  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS - Program Goals on: October 24, 2005, 10:22:58 AM
great to see this thread posted.

what i could use the most help with also is getting a list together of what is most important first, to get ourselves a great tool.

as kfitting said, i do intend to make this a general purpose tool as he has described perfectly.

but we also need to make it do 1 job great first, and i suggest that be clipboard stuff.

so as carol said, i'm thinking the first priority should be:
1) speed up and clean up efficient handling of large clipboard collections
2) support for multiple format clip+paste (personally i use plaintext but i know others need more)
3) good support for quick pasting into apps
4) customization/exclusion of clipboard capture

anything else?

to recap:
we need a long-term goal+feature set and a short-term goal and feature set, let's discuss both, and i'll try to get the short-term feature set implemented in the next month or so.
26947  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Prisma Firewall on: October 24, 2005, 07:04:43 AM
also very nice..
but as much as i love the graphs, i'm not quite ready to give up my agnitum outpost firewall just yet..
i'm open to considering another though, might be time to try the latest crop and see if any can win my heart away.

good point carol - i'll fix those as well.

26950  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What the hell is up with Cerrulean Studios? on: October 24, 2005, 05:53:18 AM
On a side-note.. was it due to my conection or due to the site that I just waited 22 seconds (!) between clicking "new topic" and getting to the edit page!?

i don't think it's your connection - the site seems to experience intermitant periods where it gets quite slow - we are doing a large amount of traffic on this site, probably more than our current server can handle - so we are looking for a new hosting plan.
