this sounds interesting - Nucleo

more power, more memory, compatible with arduino shields, and cheap!

did you find a solution?
Depends on what you mean by "solution".  I have a semi-automated solution that involves:
--a Mac OSX machine
--two Android apps (not free)
--two Windows programs (one is not free)

The entire setup takes about 15-18 steps for the end user to configure.

so you're not wanting to pursue a solution here?

BTW, vcf files appear to be plain text (I was able to open with notepad++), so with the exception of images (stored as base64) you should be able to do a lot of what you want with a good text editor (or even a find & replace app)

Hehe, if you only knew... Grin

I've installed (and even used) more operating systems than I can remember (not talking about Linux distros, but actual OSs), and every time I happen across any esoteric computing platform, my first thought is whether I can install Debian Linux on it.  I don't know exactly why, but it probably has a lot to do with Debian being my favorite Linux, and the fact that Debian (officially) supports 11 different architectures Thmbsup

wouldn't flagellation be easier?
108  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone: Choosing between tiny DIY computer kits on: February 05, 2014, 07:35:26 PM
The Arduino is a completely different beast than the Raspberry Pi and it's ilk, which should shape your choice from the beginning.  Don't use an Arduino for something that needs an embedded computing platform, and don't use a RPi if all you need to do can be accomplished with programmable logic.

and some of these should not be confused with compact PC's, ie the RPI/BeagleBone/etc are more like dev platforms than PC's and provide access to a range of peripherals not normally accessible from a 'normal' PC, while CuBox appears to be 'just' a compact PC

Thanks for posting about CuBox, 40hz.  Yet another thing on my "What I wouldn't do for a chance to install Debian on THAT" list. Grin

but why? huh 
109  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Group two windows so they get focus together. Possible? on: January 28, 2014, 08:45:38 PM
OK, so I've just done a little bit more testing on this and it's looking less and less attractive.

same scenario (excel, bot, and target app), and this time the bot started, but

  • when an excel dialog came up, I couldn't get at it, nor would excel respond in any way
  • the bot started, but the run time dialog (basically just 2 buttons) was outside of the app
  • the only way I could seemed to be able to get my apps back out of the group was to quit taskspace, but doing that resulted in an excel session without any menu bars

I never got as far as extracting any data as I couldn't control what was going on

could be this might work fine for things like editors or browser windows, though the dialog box issue would be a big question mark for me as I suspect any app might suffer from the same affliction

<sigh>

Looks like it only works on 32 bit win 7 Sad

compatibility mode?
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Group two windows so they get focus together. Possible? on: January 28, 2014, 06:05:59 PM
Probably because it parents the window to the taskspace window, and the bot is looking for that window as a top-level window.  But still a pretty cool app- thanks for the info for my needs smiley

that's what I assumed

I really like the concept, it's something that had been in the back of my mind for a while (there's a fair bit of empty space back there...)

Now I'm going to have to do some further testing and report back

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
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: silly humor - post 'em here! [warning some NSFW and adult content] on: January 19, 2014, 04:26:37 PM
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
121  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Lan Alarmclock or Timer on: January 06, 2014, 07:54:52 PM
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

so you thought it sounded bjorked?
123  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

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

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
