I think it would be extremely difficult for a judge to rule against a hash entered into the blockchain being admitted as evidence.
To throw out blockchain evidence, a judge would in effect be saying, "Yes, it is possible that someone forged a 1 in 2^256 probability with the forgery exactly matching what we are talking about here today."


unfortunately that's not how the law works.  a judge won't look at that evidence and say "i conclude its insecure", he will simply say "there is no established standard for such evidence and thus i will not consider it." actually if you got to a court you might be able to bring in expert witnesses -- but it will never get that far.  the real question is whether a PATENT examiner would use it.  i spent a brief amount of time reading patent law when someone tried to bully me out of software that i had developed and distributed before their software was a twinkle in their eye, and while they did no succeed, i learned that the patent examiner frequently will not look at evidence other than material PUBLISHED in a journal/magazine/newspaper.  the patent law is an ass.

bottom line is -- you cannot use logic to figure out what evidence would be sufficient proof.  and the BEST way to establish you were working on something at some date is to have it published somewhere reputable.  however, using a service like this would still be valuable and could be used to dissuade disreputable people from ever getting to the point where they would try to take you to court -- and in our legal system thats the way you win.

Okay, so it's not about just proving that it exists, but that it DID exist at some point in the past. But still... How is that useful? Maybe for copyright/patent claims?

exactly.  the idea is important -- patent claims and similar things rely on the idea of proving you were working on something at a certain date.
it should be noted that things like patent law can be arbitrarily irrational when it comes to what kinds of evidence is admitted as "proof" of prior work -- it may be that they would decide such a service is untrustworthy while i written notebook with dates on the pages is -- so you can't assume such a service would help you -- but it's better than nothing for people who need to establish the existence of certain work product before a given date.

I pledge to write a plugin for Find and Run Robot.
Now.. what Plugin should I write?  I could try to finally write a plugin for use with my Clipboard Help+Spell tool, which some have asked for in the paste.. Or something completely new.  Suggestions?

Very nice find -- such a think could be useful to prove you came up with an idea on a certain date.

ahhh video files.. interesting.. ok i am away from home but let me look into that when i get back, surely i can fix it.
are they only video files that you have clicked on in sc that has made sc load them into its main window?
in the mean time try this, go to the Miscelaneous Saving and Loading tab in options, and UNCHECK the option "Display videos in thumbnail panel" near bottom.  then restart.
let me know if that helps?

Hi adealey, and welcome to the site!

And thank you for your kind words about TapTap -- it's rare that i hear from users of it -- perhaps because it's rare that people use it  tongue

I'm away from home for a few days but i will try to add the feature when i get back!

it shouldn't!
in fact SC won't even lock the current file you are viewing..
are you using a recent version?

63  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: How to copy\paste a node? on: October 13, 2014, 06:06:50 PM
Copy it as normal with Ctrl+C but then to paste it, select a PARENT node that can hold the pasted node as a child, then Ctrl+V -- that should work.

We welcome all apps -- however I have bad news for you regarding receiving donations -- it's very rare to receive donations and they will be small.  that's just the reality of it.  if money is important you should try selling your software as shareware or making mobile apps that can be charged for in the store.
donationware will bring you appreciation and encouragement and interesting friends and users.  we love donationware here and we try to all support it, but the reality is that there is very very little you will receive in donations.

You can ask here if you want. Not sure I understand your question "What will happen to the other my written pieces of software?" -- can you explain?
66  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 13, 2014, 09:57:54 AM
New beta is up that is smarter about switching to the object mode of the saved preset; fixed a few bugs related to saving and loading object presets.
67  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: OK - lets get to know each other... who are you, what do you do, where from? on: October 13, 2014, 08:04:14 AM
You can write as many as you want (but you still only get 1 commemorative mug).

Welcome to the site, dmytron! Glad to meet you Thmbsup

May I suggest you consider participating in our NANY programming event this year? More info here: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=39202.0

Thank you for taking the time to report -- it makes some sense that it could have been caused by antivirus.

I note that Shades, in the first reply to your first post, did include in his post these wise words:

"Changing anti-virus software might help as well."

I myself have experienced Blue Screens of Death caused by an antivirus tool which I otherwise was quite happy with.  I suppose it's always good to be suspicious of these very low-level tools that hook into the underlying file system and intercept all file access..

Upon selecting, the corresponding object button will highlight and offer its settings.
good idea, i will add it.

It would help to access object selection mode with a key shortcut
good idea, i will add a hotkey to toggle in and out of object selection mode.
71  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 12, 2014, 06:41:05 PM
any reports?
72  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 12, 2014, 05:34:23 AM
 here (or portable).
73  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 11, 2014, 07:55:08 AM
New beta uploaded;  this version only saves the currently selected tool settings in the preset file.  If you leave object mode or just get out of a specific object tool mode, it will save all.  You will get a hint about this in the Save dialog.
This should make it considerably easier to work with object tool presets.

Two other items to note:
  • The Tool Preset menu, built from filenames, is sorted.  You can use this to help you arrange the menu in the order you want.
  • In the More Interface Options tab, you can choose to show the Object Presets menu on the root main menu (instead of a submenu of the Objects menu); this may be useful for those of you who will be switching presets frequently.

Let me know how it works for you.

Maybe I missed something and you had other advantages in mind that I fail to see? My expectations are primed by other software, which led to a certain workflow over the years. Always ready to ditch the old ways, so if you found a more efficient workflow, please explain.

Well, I can envision rare cases where you want to save whole sets of object tool settings at once, BUT no, you didn't miss anything -- it would be better if the program let you choose which single object tool settings to save in the file at the time of saving, so you could choose without having to edit the manually edit the file.  Or I'll just make it so, if you are on a specific tool panel, it will only save that tool settings, but if the tool panel is closed, it will save all.

I will try to add this asap.

As far as more than one entry in a single file and custom separators -- that won't be possible the way i've done it.
75  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 4.10 todo list on: October 10, 2014, 07:15:27 PM
Funny question since once of the features i had on my list to bump it to v5 was saving+loading object presets..  I'll have to check my todo list for any other major features planned.

Sometimes I try to only advance a major version when it heralds a bunch of big new features.. But occasionally I'll just look at the features added since last major version and decide it's time for a major version bump.  In other words, I don't have a well defined rationale for when to increase major version numbers -- other than the general idea that Version X+1 should have a ton of stuff that version X does not.
