26  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: 64 bit Standalone Stack or alternative? on: February 18, 2013, 05:50:21 PM
I did find a program called MiniWE that is 64 bit, but it constantly runs, so it shows up in the alt-tab menu. If I can't find anything else that is better, I guess I will just have to stick with miniwe.

Is this the StandaloneStack you mean?

http://www.chrisnsoft.com/standalonestack

Also here is a manual way to pin a folder.
If this is what you want.

Yes, that is the standalonestack I was talking about. Your link to pinning folders to the taskbar is nothing like what I was wanting. I want a program that will display the contents of a folder in a little popup above the pinned program icon on the taskbar, and if you click on a folder inside of this popup, instead of it just opening the folder in the explorer, it would show the contents in the popup with a button to go back to the previous folder. Standalonestack does this exactly like I am wanting, but it is only a 32 bit program, so I can't have it run 64 bit programs.
28  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / 64 bit Standalone Stack or alternative? on: February 18, 2013, 05:09:03 PM
I don't know when they added the feature, because I haven't used standalone stack in a long time, but I love how when you click on a folder inside of it, it shows the contents of the folder along with a go back button. It used to just open the folder in explorer. The problem is that Standalone Stack can't open 64 bit programs (even if you tell it to run a shortcut to a 64 bit program). Does anyone know of a 64 bit program (or a 32 bit program that by some voodoo magic supports 64 bit programs) that pins to the windows 7 taskbar, will display the contents of a folder, and display the contents of sub-folders (rather than just open the folder in explorer)

If free wifi appears where I live, I'm not going anywhere near it with any of my hardware. Not after watching hak5! Who knows how many "pineapples" I might run into.

31  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: In Need of Searchable Database For a Card Shop on: February 05, 2013, 11:53:19 AM
I think I am going to go with wordpress, because I already know how to use it, so I won't have to learn anything new, which will make things so much easier when I go to explain to the shop owner how to use it. Each card will be a blog post. And each blog post will have a category tied to it. (creature, enchantment, artifact, etc.) And then to further make it easier to search for a card, each blog post will also have tags tied to it. (eg. a green elf shaman would have the tags: green,forest,elf,shaman) then to make it look less like a wordpress blog, and more like a card database website, I disabled the pages tab at the top of the theme (there is only one page anyways, the news/anouncments page), and then added to the sidebar the categories widget, and named it card database, so that people can get a list of cards based on card type. (creature, enchantment, etc.)
32  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / In Need of Searchable Database For a Card Shop on: February 05, 2013, 12:43:43 AM
There is this local trading card shop that my friend and I are helping the owner out with. We wanted to create a website that would let people easily type in the name of a card that they are looking for (or just do a search of several cards based on various search terms).
If the card is in the database (the shop has that card) then it would show a page that lists the card's name, a link to a website that shows more info about the card, how many the shop has, and how much it costs.
I don't know how to code php or mysql, so I can't really build this from scratch.

I could just create a table that would have all the information, but that has a few issues.
1. the owner of the store would have to manually edit the source code of the webpage to add/remove/update cards. (I could use wordpress and he could just edit a page as a workaround for this.)
2. The only way you could search for cards is by using your web browser's search feature. (you could only search for specific card names, not things like card type(eg. land, creature, instant, etc.).)
3. This wouldn't really be very organised, and the average user could be overwhelmed by this and not want to use it.

Does anyone know of something simple and easy to use that could accomplish this?
33  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Possible to send sms over seas via email gateway? on: December 19, 2012, 04:54:15 AM
Sounds like it might work then.
I know for me at least, it doesn't cost extra. It's just counted as a regular message even if its an email address. I'll have to ask my sister, but I would assume she also has unlimited texting (back in high school and college, she would pretty much text from the second she woke up, to the second she went to bed) and unless vodafone is different from AT&T or Verizon, it probably won't cost extra to send a message to an email address.
34  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Possible to send sms over seas via email gateway? on: December 19, 2012, 12:08:12 AM
So I live in the USA, and have a phone with Verizon. My sister's husband is stationed at the air force base in the UK, and she has a phone with Vodafone.
Would it be possible for me to add 0n(at)vodafone(dot)net to my phone as a contact, and her add n(at)vtext(dot)com to her phone as a contact, and we be able to text each other back and forth without getting hammered with long distance messaging fees?

Looks like an interesting game. Installing it right now. It must have some decent graphics or something, since it requires a decent amount of system resources.
36  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / chrome won't play mp4 files anymore on: November 21, 2012, 11:23:38 PM
Not sure when it started, but for some reason on my primary computer (win 7 x64), chrome will no longer play mp4 files. There is times where it will play an mp4 file, but only audio plays, no video. It used to play them just fine. My Home theater PC (also win 7 x64) has chrome installed (same version as my primary pc, with same profile logged in), and it plays them just fine. I know that it isn't a conflict with my extensions, because both computers have the exact same extensions installed, and I have also tried disabling all of them with no success. I have tried playing mp4 files in IE10, and Firefox. Firefox plays them using quicktime, but the video is kind of laggy, and IE just sits there and pretends to be loading a webpage, but never does anything else.
37  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any program to manually run startup programs? on: November 05, 2012, 10:07:32 PM
I use StartupManager.  There was some dustup over OpenCandy, but as they release a portable version and the source, I never dealt with that problem.  With the portable one you just extract and run.
so much better looking than what I ran across!
38  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any program to manually run startup programs? on: November 05, 2012, 09:21:42 PM
I think I am just going to do it manually. I ran across a program that reads what runs at startup, and I'm just manually adding a shortcut to a folder, and then going to the program and telling it to not run at startup. I think I might prefer this method anyways, I have more control over what happens.
39  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any program to manually run startup programs? on: November 05, 2012, 09:05:42 PM
Keeping a folder of shortcuts to your startup items is handy.
Not only if you want to start them manually but also to check to see if they are all running.
Sometimes I forget what I have enabled to run at startup.
Thats actually not a bad idea. Is there a program that can read what runs a startup, and add a shortcut to a folder, and then remove it from startup?
40  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any program to manually run startup programs? on: November 05, 2012, 08:13:48 PM
I want it to manually start each one when I click on it in the list
41  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Any program to manually run startup programs? on: November 05, 2012, 07:52:43 PM
Basically what I want is a program kind of like a startup delayer, but instead of just delaying everything by a set time, I would like this program to be the only thing to run at startup, and it would show a list of everything that would normally run at startup, and then allow me to manually run the program. (in which case it would then move it from the unstarted list to the started list or something like that) Of course, I would like all of windows' junk to startup automatically.

Is there a program that exists to do this?
42  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: advanced paste program on: October 28, 2012, 09:32:44 AM
On my copy of windows 7, it warns me that there is already a folder with the same name. It then says if there are any files in there with the same name it will ask if I want to replace those files. By replace, what it actually means though is it will ask if I want to replace the file, or leave both files and add (1) to the end of the new file, or skip that file.

Back in windows xp, the only option was to either replace the duplicate file, or skip that file and the rest of the files.

As far as I know, there has never been a windows OS that would simply delete all the files in a destination folder with the same name as the source folder before copying the new files to it.

I guess it isn't that big of a deal. I'm just glad the auto mark as read feature has been fixed. Thmbsup
45  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: In Search Of Good Web Based RSS Reader on: September 18, 2012, 02:47:27 AM
Turn off the "In expanded view, mark items as read when you scroll past them." option in google reader.

 ohmy That must be a relatively new feature. It was not there when I abandoned google reader for netvibes.
I might have to switch back to google reader.
I guess then the only question I have left then is I heard that google reader automatically marks an item as read if it is older than 30 days, Does it still do this? (I guess it isn't too bad if it does, I'll just have to read my items faster.)
46  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / In Search Of Good Web Based RSS Reader on: September 18, 2012, 02:00:55 AM
For the longest time I have been using Google Reader as my RSS reader. While I kind of like it, I don't like how it auto marks things as read as I scroll through them.
Recently I switched to netvibes, because it requires you to click on the feed item to mark it as read. I really enjoy it, but it randomly marks items as unread, sometimes multiple times.

So what I am looking for is a good RSS reader that is web based so that I don't have to download anything and can for example go over to my friend's house and read/watch some of the items.
It has to be able to mark items as read/unread (I have ran across a few web readers that don't have this option.)
It shouldn't randomly make read items unread again (I'm talking about you netvibes!)
It would be nice if it would have nice organization features, or at least not implode on itself if I have TONS of feed that each have TONS of unread items (I use rss to keep track of all my youtube subs since the homepage is utter crap, and some of the youtubers I am subscribed to upload several videos every day, and I don't watch all of them each day.)
Don't go out of your way for this feature, but it would also be nice if there were either a bookmarklet/extension for chrome that would let me add new feeds.

If there is a better alternative to rss (and Youtube's terrible homepage) feel free to include that too.

Just tested it out. (and by tested it out, I download it and ran it for about a minute or two, and messed with a few folders and some pictures.) My overall impression of it was meh... It's kind of cool to look at, but the regular windows explorer is perfectly fine for me.
