i also plan to add a button to clipart object panel that says "resize to original size" and maybe some extra preset sizes for quick resizing?
also, what do you think of always pasting bitmap objects small? like 64xwhatever, when they are bigger than that?

maybe what would be nice would be a simple javascript function that when you clicked on that link (or email link), brought up a tiny java script form that you have to click a button on before it will redirect you - that should stop any email harvesting and still allow general navigation.  anyone want to help me look for such a mini script?

another idea:

red background circle with word "NO"
and green background circle with word "YES"

ps. i just meant "surprising" because i originally thought i would like circles the best, but i think maybe i might use the rounded rectangles the most now, since they look really good.

we've been down that road before carol - there are actually already some nice round circles with numbers -
i specifically asked stefan to create some with the word "step" in them smiley  cheesy cheesy cheesy

yes, you are right, if we enforced only having paypal encrypted form field text in that field (or if i allowed a special prefix like "encrypted=" which could be a reasonable solution), then this might be doable.

i really wish paypal had a better way of doing this.. they really should have a simple link with user id# in it or something  thumb down
26981  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Instructions for making a PayPal link people can follow to donate money to you on: October 22, 2005, 09:54:49 AM
i think that would be too much of a security risk..
i suppose if you already have a web page, the easiest thing is to point your donation link to a page on your site with the encrypted form, but for those that don't a solution is still needed.

deviatnart is an amazing place - nighted, maybe a post by you about it would be better received? i've noticed that in general people don't respond very well if someone who is not already a member just drops in to make a request out of the blue?

title says it all: hold ALT when resizing bitmap objects to preserve aspect ratio
26984  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Bug / Issue — Paste of Images Changes their Aspect Ratio on: October 22, 2005, 09:11:55 AM
i think it was shrinking one dimension to fit it in screen and not both - i'll fix that.
26985  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: ANNOUNCING - DonationCoder.com Logo Contest on: October 22, 2005, 09:08:15 AM
that's kind of fun actually  smiley
26986  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Program Closer on: October 22, 2005, 09:07:07 AM
i could add this to process tamer maybe, let users make menus that start up, shutdown, or set specific priorities for named apps.
26987  DonationCoder.com Software / Unfinished Requests / Re: Folder Note in a Thumbnail on: October 22, 2005, 09:06:11 AM
this is a really fun idea - i think making a thumbanail image for a folder is just a matter of having a picture with a certain name in the folder - so this would be implemented with a context menu extension that simply invoked a graphics editor on an existing thumbnail image of a certain name, or created one of appropriate size first then opened it.  a fun thing to add to Conext Menu Commander (our upcoming context menu tool).
26988  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: 4U: just a few "InfoBox" clip arts on: October 22, 2005, 09:02:31 AM
infoboxes are quite nice too.


some ideas for other clipart that might be nice:
clipart "thumbs up"  thumbs up  and "thumbs down"  thumb down
copyright symbols

more "thought balloons"

maybe some clipart that says "Fill in this info"

more that say "click here" with pic of mouse?
26989  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: 4U: just a few "InfoBox" clip arts on: October 22, 2005, 08:59:27 AM
i think the "stop!" sign is great - i'd love to see more "stop" "attention" "warning" etc.
very useful.

ps.
put text smaller and inside border more smiley
26990  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: 4U: "Mouser Step Clip" vol2 on: October 22, 2005, 08:58:07 AM
the circles are kind of nice, but the underline under the letter makes it a bit harder to read, imho.
26991  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: 4U: new try of "Mouser step clips" on: October 22, 2005, 08:57:07 AM
i think they are good as they are, the rounded rectangle one is surprisingly nice.

if i had one suggestion it would only be to reduce size of numbers in circles a little and move them more inside the circle - MORE SPACE BETWEEN TEXT AND BORDER !!! (as always!) - i think stefan does not like things to have to be inside cages - he wants his text to be free  Grin
26992  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: 4U: new try of "Mouser step clips" on: October 22, 2005, 08:53:01 AM
i definitely like these the best and i know i will be using them myself smiley
26993  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Instructions for making a PayPal link people can follow to donate money to you on: October 22, 2005, 08:46:02 AM
i can have the button point to a script and not the person's email, and write a little script that opens the proper link.
26994  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / Re: Instructions for making a PayPal link people can follow to donate money to you on: October 22, 2005, 08:43:33 AM
you know that is a VERY good point!

bots do scan websites and harvest emails for spam...
hmm, ok let's see how can we fix this..
maybe an encrypted paypal link is needed after all somehow...

26996  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Domain names and how they are set up on: October 21, 2005, 11:50:36 PM
something bears saying in revising my comments:

my experience with web server and domain name stuff is that many of these things SHOULD be simple and straightforward - sometimes they work flawlessly as they should, but then sometimes they involve 3 days of frustration for no seemingly logical reason.
26997  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Just thinking out loud - DonationCoder.com as a formal non-profit organization? on: October 21, 2005, 11:46:27 PM
Just thinking out loud here about the possibility of DonationCoder.com becoming a non-profit organization..

anyone have any experience with non-profit organizations, setting one up, etc.?

I was reading a little bit about non-profits in the bookstore today, and while it's surely way too premature for us at this point, it's something i'm thinking about and i'd be interested in hearing feedback on the idea if anyone has any strong opinions on it either way..
26998  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Visual CD is pretty incredible catalogue software on: October 21, 2005, 11:21:24 PM
this really is a category ripe for a full serious donationcoder.com review -
and there aren't that many candidate apps, so it shouldn't be nearly as painful as most of our reviews to write..

anyone want to take a shot at doing a guest review of this category?

remember our two part review system - first week the review preview lays out the category and candidate programs, second week is the full review and awards..
26999  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: ANNOUNCING - DonationCoder.com Logo Contest on: October 21, 2005, 06:08:48 PM
just bumping this topic - we really do need some designs for logo / cartoon mascot /etc.

anyone know any artists who could work up a few sketches?
