Thanks JavaJones for starting a new thread on modern forum stuff, I'm looking forward to discussion continuing there.

As for DC SMF2 progress, I have just finished porting over the DonationCredits system to new smf2 code, and that's my last big hurdle.. Everything else is just tweaking and testing now, and then the dc-ification of the look of the css.
So, it's easy sailing from here on out.. (at least for the forum).

I'm open to adding more features to the uploader -- let me know which features you think would be most important to add.  thumbs up

Does the Screenshot Captor Imager uploading tool allow anonymous uploading?
yes.

Does the tool keep a log..

It does keep a log of sorts, cleared on restart.
Here's some screenshots:

various links for each upload such as direct link, delete link, etc.  If so how easy is it to use those links.
it doesn't present such links for actions -- if you use a non-anonymous account you can of course go to your account and manage/delete/etc.  if it's anonymous im not sure you can.

57  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Argument for overwriting previous captures with Mini Cap on: July 20, 2015, 02:10:16 PM
i just went to look at the minicap page to find the argument to tell it to overwrite an existing file, and couldn't find one!  Maybe it's already there but not documented..
can't believe no one has requested it before now.

regardless, i will add the feature this week and post an update.

i'll add an option that will let you overwrite an existing file, and maybe an option to rename previous file with time_date and then save new one with the specified name.

First, welcome to the site  Thmbsup

ShareX is a nice tool but I'm the author of Screenshot Captor, and so I'm best suited to talk about it.

Originally Screenshot Captor did not include support for uploading images to an image sharing site -- that's why I added integration with ShareX.

Since that time, Screenshot Captor now has a nice built-in uploader for an Imager Sharing site (ImageShack) which works right out of the box and requires no signup, etc.

So at this time, the ShareX integration in SC is not really needed, and is probably overkill.  ShareX is still a nice tool and some people may prefer it, but integrating the two is probably not very useful at this point.

If you have any questions bout how to do something in Screenshot Captor, just ask!

By the way, that picture of Fred I was taken in a 1997 Toyota RAV4 which I bought especially for him because of the room behind the back seats. I still drive that 18 year old car and all the Freds have ridden back there.

that's wonderful.

Happy trails and rest in peace Fred II.

I'm having second thoughts about Drupal again too, but I've decided to punt on that for now.

I've got my eye on 2.1 and hopefully the upgrade from 2.0 to 2.1 will be relatively painless when it is suitable for production use.  I agree with your concerns about smf but judge it to be the best way forward for us.

You seem to be following these trends pretty seriously -- perhaps i can chew your ear over email occasionally about the issues? (mouser@donationcoder.com)

I'm coding a few slick new features.. How about a (sortable) page where you can see all the topics started by (or alternatively, participated in by) a given member? I'm having fun!
The icing on the cake is that you can also filter by whether the topic is locked and/or sticky, and by # of replies (useful for seeing unreplied or ultra-popular topics, etc.)

glasskuter, after you donate you will receive an email with a license key (for our other big software), and a link to visit that will upgrade your forum account and put the money in your account where you can give it out.  so just visit that link and then you'll be able to give out your donation.

Let me just say how great it is to see threads like this, where someone has a request and someone else solves it.   The icing on the cake is when the original person who made the request is willing to go through the steps to give a donation to the coder -- it means a lot.  Kiss

In cases like this, it's important not just that people donate, but that they go through with the extra step as you are, and send their donation to the person who helped them.  If anyone ever gets lost and needs help directing their donation to someone on the site, and can't figure out how to do it, please don't hesitate to contact us (mouser@donationcoder.com) and I will assist.  thumbs up

That sounds like a great feature idea to add to my Process Piglet tool  thumbs up


I'll add it asap.

Another full day of work, from wake to sleep, working on the upgrade.  I'm in the groove smiley
Everything is progressing steadily, and I can't imagine anything getting in the way of the new forum going live in August.



It bears repeating that people shouldn't expect dramatically wonderful new features -- it's going to look and feel mostly the same.

The main point of all this work is to make everything easier to maintain and upgrade going forward for the next 10 years.

Having said that, it's clear that one benefit of all this work is that I will feel much better about adding some new features, now that I have a better hang of what is easy vs hard to maintain and what changes make upgrading more difficult.

I'm getting excited about unveiling the new forum.

Welcome to the site, ilpro!
So few people seem to use the brush feature..
I see what you mean about the brush size -- let me look into that, and the antialiasing of the brush layer.

It's not too late at all.  I have implemented my own custom spam reporting and related modifications (which are mainly focused on DETECTING AND ALERTING human moderators about suspicious posts and profile changes rather than trying to stop it outright) but I'll be looking into additional 3rd party spam mods.

Let me know which ones you use.

I spent today porting the badges mod, so everyone will be able to keep their forum "flare".
69  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: BUG - .objects listed in file tab on: July 15, 2015, 01:56:03 PM
How strange..
I can't reproduce it here.. Any other clues? Does it happen only when you have a huge number of files in the list, or only when in simple file listing mode, etc.?

Ok i reproduced it in simple file name mode -- except in my case i can see it flash the .object file in the list and then refresh itself to clear it.  That may not happen if there are a ton of files in the list.

Let me see if i can fix.

Meanwhile, can you check if this goes away when you are in thumbnail image panel mode?

It's good to hear 40hz is moving on another wavelength but is still alive and kicking. Tell him we're thinking of him and wishing him well, and we'll leave a seat at the table.

72  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Using a Webcam as a security camera -- software suggestions? on: July 14, 2015, 11:44:55 PM
Hey folks,

I'm looking for some (MS Windows) software recommendations.

I'm rarely away from home for days at a time -- but on those rare occasions when I am, I'd like to be able to run some software that does motion detection from a webcam and instantly sends updates to an online source (emailing snapshots would be nice).

The use case I have in mind is fairly specific -- if someone breaks into my house, I'd like to have some images of the event.  I presume they would steal the computer and equipment, so the software is going to have to send the photos quickly before it's disconnected.

Any recommendations, paid or free?

I find in general if I can dismiss the urge quickly, it will go away.

But if i start thinking about it more and more and "analyzing" whether i should buy something -- the "analysis" eventually turns into my brain coming up with some poorly rationalized justification of why i should buy it and why it's really not such a large amount of money to spend.  Sooner or later it's almost as if i have to buy it just to stop thinking about it!

The programming school pre-dates DonationCoder by several years -- it was the first forum I made, and I have a very soft spot in my heart for it.
It was created at a time where there were no other real alternatives -- no good places to get self-teaching assignments for a variety of languages.

Now of course there are tons of such options, massively funded dedicated online learning websites with large support staffs, etc.

So, I think the programming school is probably best handled by others, with us maintaining a great page of information on what sites we would recommend and why, etc.  The new cms will make it easier for us to have such pages.

Alternatively, we could create a new self-teaching programming school of our own, on a sister website using a cms designed for online learning, or on a separate area of our new cms.

But the bottom line is that i think it's probably time to stop having the programming school exist as dozens of private little sub-forums of the dc forum.
