tower defence has been popular here so this is probably appropriate - http://www.makeuseof.com/...nse-boring-tower-offense/

Looks kind of interesting.  Have you much experience with it?

I tried it briefly, but it didn't work in the context that I wanted to use it

FWIW I was running a screen scraper into excel so I wanted to group excel, the source app, and the bot in one window, but, for whatever reason, when I dragged the apps onto the task space the bot could no longer see the target app...

That said, I didn't really give it much time (I didn't really have it to spare) but I had intended to come back to it as there were a few combinations I could try...

Thanks Fenix Thmbsup

It's no big deal really as it still works, but if it can be fixed then it's worth posting

It's a bit curious actually as it had been working fine, then one day it wasn't huh.  No change that I know of that should have impacted it, but that's one of the marvels of modern technology eh

FWIW I deleted the existing folder in case of corruption and ran with a copy of the latest but the error persists.

I haven't read you're other thread about syncing your contacts, but a little bit of clarity around your workflow might be helpful

based on your post it would seem that the only use for the consolidated VCF is to sync to your file?  that being the case it would seem logical to continue to manage the individual cards separately and only merge for syncing (seeing as that's the sole purpose of the merged file).

Of course if there's some syncing from your phone (the word sync is a clue) then that's an extra consideration (does it export as a consolidated file, or as individual cards)

Well, it could get a bit more embarrassing than usual if she cuts the cheese, I'd say.

gouda one...(sorry, couldn't resist embarassed)

puts a new slant on 'singles' too I'd warrant

cheese or not, did you notice the kraftmanship?

fenix

getting an error with BBCeditor on load - unhandled exception...object reference not set to an instance of an object

it was working fine, then one day it wasn't.  I upgraded to the latest, but the issue persists

I can continue through the error and it appears to be working as advertised

running latest version (1.35b?) on W7x32 with .net 4 - error details attached

any idea's

not really my thing, but what about a simple web page?

set the page on one pc, and you can reference it from all the others?

a quick google search finds plenty of possible candidates though I can't vouch for their suitability

wait.. you mean the Finnish language is a real thing?  I thought it was a made up language like Klingon..  huh

so you thought it sounded bjorked?
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Best Storage Option for Ripped DVD Movies? on: December 19, 2013, 04:34:22 PM
seems to me you're putting the cart before horse here.

what is it you want to do?  do you simply want back up copies of the collection, or some sort of HTPC solution, or some sort of networked library, or something else altogether?

the answers to all of these questions may overlap, but the best solution really depends on your end goal (and bear in mind that it's likely to change as you find out what options area available to you Cool)

FWIW I think the RasPi is a great way to approach this - add a hub and some external drives (you probably already have at least one) and you're good to go Thmbsup

I say, what about "Minor Candidates"?

to which I say, they're ALL candidates Thmbsup

But when you actually want to do some "work", have you considered our own Vlastimil's Real World Paint? Maybe it's missing some killer feature you need from Corel p.s. Pro (the key word I picked up on was Pro!), but it looks solid.

agreed, this one is a real contender, though clearly I'm not the final arbiter

so, you've met my wife?

I have NO idea what 90% of that does!

that's pretty much my reaction to most graphics tools.  Even if I think I know what they are I probably don't know how to use it embarassed

You never know what might develop.

I'm thinking it might be a funeral plan ohmy

Or, why not save a lot of trouble and keep the lens cap in place?

ever tried to put a cap on your wife?

safe to say the result will probably be a negative...

The people who play them are typically people who aren't going to do anything outrageous in real life. With some rare exceptions, people spending vast amounts of time indulging in a MMORPG usually are the same people that might talk big but not actually act on it.

wait a minute, I saw an article on line that said all game players are serial killers and/or mass murderers, lurking in darkened rooms plotting our massacre...

(and there should be enough keywords in that last sentence to get me well up the watchlists  Grin)
117  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA - how to capitalise the first word of every line on: December 11, 2013, 06:24:38 PM
this is a bit clumsy cos I just dashed it off quickly, but instead of entering the text into the script, loop through the files.  

And instead of looping through each line, just work with the requisite strings (should be faster)

[copy or print]
#singleinstance, force
setbatchlines, -1

fileselectfolder, myfolder, *%a_workingdir%

loop, %myfolder%\*.txt,0,1
{
tooltip, %a_index% - %a_loopfilename%
newfile:= a_loopfilename
stringreplace, newfile, newfile, `., _.,all

loop,read, %myfolder%\%a_loopfilename%
{
stringleft, xx, a_loopreadline,1
stringupper, xx, xx
stringtrimleft, yy, a_loopreadline, 1
tmp_.= xx . yy . "`n"
}

fileappend, %tmp_%, %myfolder%\%newfile%
tmp_:=
}

input files must be text, and output will be to a new file ie output from SOURCEFILE.TXT will be to SOURCEFILE_.TXT

listening to all this stuff I can't help wondering how much of this stuff is real and how much obfuscation

disinformation is as powerful as information in the intelligence game...

I just passed on the link in case it was of interest, it's up to the individual to decide whether or not they want to follow it up.

FWIW mostIwant appears to be an aggregate of free offers from other vendors (nothing fishy about that, most 'news' sites follow the same process), and I'm pretty sure chip.de is the site for a german electronics magazine (I don't read german, but somebody here can probably confirm).
122  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: XMAS calendar giveaways... on: December 08, 2013, 04:52:10 PM
fishy? how?
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pebble...anybody got one? on: December 05, 2013, 08:45:33 PM
just had a read through the kickstarter page (it didn't occur to me to look there for a product who's campaign closed over 12 months ago) and I can't say I put much store in the comments.  

A lot of it sounded like foot stamping (where's my device? I want it now!!) though given the time lines that's probably understandable.

I also hadn't realised that they were still very new (seems they only started to ship around March?), so pretty much everyone is an early adopter and should be prepared for buggy releases.

FWIW it doesn't appear that the existing competition is much better (assuming the pebble isn't much chop), so maybe this is an area to watch (boom boom)....
124  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Pebble...anybody got one? on: December 05, 2013, 07:00:52 PM
Anyone here got any experience with these things?  (I expect nudone to be all over this  Grin Grin Grin)

They seem like a nifty gadget.  Not sure whether or not I'd buy one (though it's tempting), but I'd be interested to hear some real world feedback if anyones got any
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How can I find out what is restarting my PC automatically? on: December 04, 2013, 07:09:14 PM
if it was me I'd totally uninstall ALL the video drivers and the associated apps - clean out as much as possible, then shut down and reinstall the bare minimum (have a fish around and you might find an installer for just the video drivers)
