26976  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Snapfiles, and what makes a good software listing site.. on: November 28, 2005, 04:51:03 AM
nevf, i agree with most of what you say - there are huge numbers of these software listing sites popping up, as it becomes easier and easier to automate them and run them with little human work involved.

and i agree the ratings given by editors for these sites are mostly useless.

some in fact are much worse than useless.  it's becoming more common for such sites to "charge" developers in order to "review" their software.  very fishy.  and yes, they all survive on ads, which isn't in itself a bad thing as long as they actually provide some good content.

but this just makes it all the more important to identify those few sites that actually do a good job.
i've pointed out a couple here i like:
  • snapfiles, for their organization and friendliness to freeware
  • freeware world team, for their focus on freeware and great work at finding stuff
  • tucows, is now just plain insane (they used to be *the* software lising site)

someone had mentioned coloring based on patterns like filetype, and it seems like a reasonable idea.

i can see wanting to customize font,
but do you really mean you want to be able to specify different fonts and colors for each column of the display?
26978  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feature - Restricting Searches to Folders on: November 28, 2005, 04:25:43 AM
you've come up with the same solution i did smiley
it's coming in version 2, very soon.
i've been refering to these as search "modifiers".

not sure what you mean by using a hotkey or double tap for switching between search modes.

i also have some really nice ideas of some unique clipboard related features i plan to add soon, that i know will be liked smiley
26981  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: idea: give a driveltter a name say E DVD-writer on: November 28, 2005, 04:05:47 AM
by the way here is the download for MS .NET2 runtimes:

these could be useful for other programs so definitely worth installing.
26982  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Learning CHS on: November 28, 2005, 04:03:06 AM
i really need to update the help files for all of the programs, it's long overdue.

1) storing images+richtext: is coming soon (as an option) but it currently only copies plaintext.

2) count characters: specify the hotkey for it in options and then (when main window is minimized <- important), just select some text and hit the spell hotkey and it will report the character count in the system tray.  maybe i should add an option to auto-show it on capture?

3) restablish clipboard periodically: all tools which automatically capture clipboard can get interfered with by other programs that dont behave well, and lose their connection to the clipboard sometimes, and then they fail to capture until you "re-establish" the connection.  this option auto re-established occassionally so this doesn't happen.

4) quick note add: not fully implemented yet - is meant to be a small window popup where you can type a note to store in some group; right now just bring up main window and hit + button, it does the same thing.

5) spell windows object: idea is to add spelling inside other programs.  again it works by specifying a hotkey, and then triggering that hotkey from the progam.  unfortunately does not currently work inside internet explorer.  test it in notepad for an example of how it works.

i'll try to update the help files soon.

cool smiley
thanks lanux.

chs still has some rough edges and has a lot more stuff that needs to be added, but it's getting there.

carol i tried it right away and found it hypnotizing (and said so).
very cool and like i said at the time, the bending rubber wood effect really is hypnotizing.
26985  News and Reviews / Best Firewall / Re: agnitum outpost v3 - the horror? on: November 28, 2005, 03:51:44 AM
according to the reply, and my further use, it seems to be a bug, and it seems like it's now back to normal.
however i recently had some trouble listening to some real media streams and it was caused by the new outpost v3.
if i had it to do all over again i probably would have stayed with version 2 for longer, v3 still seems a bit flakey to me.
26986  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Bug Issue v1.05.02 on: November 27, 2005, 03:05:07 PM
the program starts up minimized for me fine and i also use windows xp.  the fact that those checkboxes are not checked are the biggest surprise for me.  maybe you wouldnt mind trying to change a lot of options and restarting it and seeing if it resets all of the settings.

also would be very useful to hear if you exit and restart before rebooting and see if the start minimized stuff works then.
26987  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: idea: give a driveltter a name say E DVD-writer on: November 27, 2005, 02:42:37 PM
can this even be done?
26988  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Bug Issue v1.05.02 on: November 27, 2005, 02:41:34 PM
if you don't mind i'd rather you not find a fix smiley
more important for me to figure out what is causing this strange behavior.

question: are any of the options in the options dialog set to what you set them to, or do they all get reset when it starts up this way?

what operating system do you have, winxp win2k, 98, me?
26989  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: Opinions wanted on: November 27, 2005, 02:20:30 PM
dm2 doesnt seem to expand size of open/save dialogs nor change them into details mode.
26990  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Bug: Error MSGs on v1.04.16 startup on: November 27, 2005, 12:13:12 PM
i tried hard to reproduce this and could not.  but i did try a different change, maybe it will help?

exit program from tray and copy this new exe over the old.
26991  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Bug Issue v1.05.02 on: November 27, 2005, 12:09:36 PM
can you try this version. it's just a new exe - exit from tray and replace old exe with this one.

if you would prefer a full installer i can upload that instead.
26992  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Bug Issue v1.05.02 on: November 27, 2005, 11:44:28 AM
what operating system do you run?

other than the start with windows and start minimized, does the program otherwise appear to be working ok when it starts with windows this way?
26993  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Bug Issue v1.05.02 on: November 27, 2005, 11:16:50 AM
someone else reported this problem also, though your clues are more detailed and intriguing.
someone suggested earlier that it might be due to the use of an alternative startup program.. do you have some special tool you are using to run programs on startup of computer?

with your clues im going to search and see if i can find what it might be.. the fact that the checkboxes are unchecking is a very good clue and may be all i need to fix the problem.. ill report later today.
26994  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: Opinions wanted on: November 27, 2005, 06:33:15 AM
dm2 has great promise but it is lacking some key features for this review
(though it has tons of extra features as you say that others dont).
26995  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Opinions wanted on: November 27, 2005, 06:09:12 AM
as i finish up the review i'd really appreciate any opinions people might have on these tools.


come on guys/gals, help me out by installing the trial versions and letting me know you opinion on which is best and why.
26996  Special User Sections / Activation/License/Language Help / Re: Question,Please come in,Thanks. on: November 27, 2005, 12:41:34 AM
the sites i pasted use standard port, so you can just ignore that.
just try efnet servers until you find one that lets you connect. you should not have to enter any port information.
26997  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Unknown service (can't find relevant info on the web) on: November 26, 2005, 10:28:52 PM
yes but carol's experience shows the danger of just reflexively "cleaning the machine" -
because in deleting the file she also deleted her hope of determining for sure if she did in fact have a trojan, and perhaps figuring out how.

i say treat a possible infection as if it was an indication of a security problem - your first goal should not be to remove it and destroy any clues.  your first goal should be identify the cause of your problem and how it got in, then proceed to cleaning.
