The item that caught my attention was the algorithm for splitting a payment among multiple participants in a project, by trying to find a fair way to divide it based on participants assessment of others.  The website offers little explanation for the algorithm, but does link to a published paper on the algorithm (written by people other than those who made the website).

Always great to see threads like this -- except to the extent that skwire makes the rest of us coders look like slackers.. undecided
54  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 05, 2014, 09:59:32 AM
Is there no built-in screen capture function for FTL?
If you are doing something temporary that requires lots of screenshots from FTL, one thing you could try is to temporarily disable hardware acceleration for the monitor; that might enable you to capture screenshots from it using SC.  But you probably wouldn't want to leave that setting since it would negatively impact game performance.

I'm afraid that the DirectX addon for Screenshot Captor has been abandoned for now as being too unstable.
56  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: View image without objects on: November 05, 2014, 07:06:21 AM
Neat idea.  I could add a feature for this quite easily -- perhaps I will.

However, you can achieve what you want in the current version of Screenshot Captor quite easily by creating a tool in a certain way.
Just create a tool (see bottom of Tools menu) that launches an image viewer (like IrfanView) and use the parameter "%tmpfileplain%" instead of the normal "%file%":

This tells Screenshot Captor to send a copy of the current image without objects to the specified program.

Screenshot Captor also does this when you configure an external Graphic Editor, in the options and hit the Graphic Editor toolbar button.  It does this so that you can make changes to the background image while preserving your objects.
57  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 04, 2014, 08:29:29 PM
Is it because of the popup dialog box? I can't seem to deselect that (do I have to switch to admin account to do so?).
i don't think the popup dialog can be causing the problem, but you could try turning it off by telling SC to stay minimized after capture; that option can be found in the tray, in the options dialog, or in the postcap dialog itself.
doing that is worth a try if only to get a proper answer to the question of whether the full screen FTL disapears briefly during capture.
58  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 04, 2014, 06:42:36 PM
Does the FTL screen disapear briefly during the capture -- or does it remain onscreen at all times during the capture?

And to confirm -- you tried CHECKING the the "Do not try to use the PrintWindow" option (bottom of Window Capturing 2 tab) and then used alt+PrtScr to capture the active window?

Do the dimmer tools get you the result you want aside from being sometimes buggy?

Welcome Emannresu  thumbs up

I think that blog essay deserves an extended excerpt:

"This post is going to be different. There are no visuals this time.

This is a good presentation of programming fonts http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/30040/Font-Survey-of-the-Best-Monospaced-Programming. However, to choose the best font for a particular use case quickly and efficiently, a different presentation approach is required. Since each letter is a picture, comparing even several fonts is the same as comparing thousands of tiny pictures. Yet, most, if not all, websites that try to solve the issue of finding the best programming font, use graphics…

A couple of days ago I spent some time struggling with the code that had “1” (“one”) instead of “l” (lowercase “ell”).  The common way to compare fonts is to look at the sequence “Illegal1 = O0″. However, comparison gets tricky when your IDE uses both regular and bold variants of the same font to display code. After some time, I came up with the following solution... Below is a table of mono-spaced fonts collected from numerous sources. I chose point sizes so letter sizes look similar.."


And the conclusion:

The Winner
In my particular case, “Dina” is the best.

Dina is, of course, created by long-time DonationCoder member Jibz, and can be found here: http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Jibz/Dina

There are programs that can record audio from the sound card
It is my understanding this this can be extremely difficult, is dependent on vagaries of the sound card/driver, and may be close to impossible for many/most modern sound drivers.
It may have been easier with older versions of windows.
This may be your main obstacle.

This is also the thing that Wolfram Alpha can probably do, since it's based on a serious mathematical engine (Mathematica): http://www.wolframalpha.com/

For example I typed "volume of cylinder vs cuboid"

Result was an interactive page:

There is currently no way to ask SC to print a screenshot across on multiple pages, though i definitely understand the desire.
It's a feature I intend on adding soon, so stay tuned.

I would think placing FARR on units in its probationary state would be good for your business, as well as for mine. But let me know if I'm not seeing that correctly.

Absolutely! I appreciate it.  Thmbsup

Ok, thanks. That's great. Did I miss this info in the Help file? I did try to locate it.

It's in my Screenshot Captor help file -- I need to add it to my others, thanks for the reminder.  thumbs up
65  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: Ideas Wanted! on: November 02, 2014, 04:38:39 PM
This reminds me of an idea I had that is related, that I would love to see someone do for NANY -- write a DLL that a developer can call from an installation setup script that will detect if the installer is running inside one of these wrappers like cnet downloader, and ABORT the setup with a nice message to the user telling them why the program is not being installed and directing them where to visit to do the proper download.

It seems to me that this will make it possible for coders to protect their apps from being wrapped in these crap addition downloads, and force software download sites to offer the original installers.
66  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Installation switches? on: November 02, 2014, 04:35:54 PM
Not only can you install FARR automatically/silently using some options described here:

But it's also the case that if the FARR installer finds the following files in the same directory as the installer, it should PRE-INSTALL them:
  • DonationCoder_findrunrobot_Key.dat
  • FindAndRunRobot.ini
  • FindAndRunUserToolbar.ini
  • ConfigDir.ini

In this way you can pre-install a license key and initial settings at the time of install (initial settings can be manually edited to only set certain options and leave others at default).

A bit of background:  This feature to pre-install a license key and initial settings was written to aid large commercial site-license installations.  If you know of a company that would like to purchase a commercial site license for a dozen or more computers, please send them to the commercial license page: http://www.donationcoder.com/commercial

I agree with 4wd's guess:
c) Your AV/AM program has taken exception to fSekrit and refuses to let it write out the final executable.

This is kind of a weird one -- it's hard for me to justify adding a hotkey just for this.
I do plan on totally revamping the hotkey system to make it more flexible; when i do we can revisit this.

I can't remember what the history was regarding the Ctrl+O hotkey inside FARR.. I'm going to have to go back and look..

Formatting presets are not working in latest version
they seem to be working well for me -- anyone else with this problem?

Also, if I may, a suggestion. I would like to see the dialog for formatting presets right off the main options window.
this is a good idea -- putting it on my todo list.
