Nice I didn't know PSPad had this built in! I Noticed that there are no longer start menu options to add AHK highlighting to Notepad++ some time back after installing AHK.

Don't upgrade Windows, install a clean version, so you start with a clean sheet - then move your data back on to it.
Install less software, instead use portable software and programs that come with Windows. For example avoid Office if you can help it and instead use Wordpad or Google Docs.
Use readyboost.
Choose a performant anti-virus (out of date in terms of product versions, but good starting point)
Don't change system settings because some blog says so, they might make your system slower or have adverse effects (turning off essential features).

103  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Firefall developer: "Consoles, I believe, are dead" on: May 03, 2012, 07:09:31 AM
Interesting article by Fred Dutton, speaking to former World of Warcraft lead Mark Kern:

[…] the Red 5 Studios CEO argued that the free-to-play model offers developers much more room to flex their creative muscles, rewarding gamers with more innovative gameplay experiences than risk-averse AAA console publishers can hope to offer.

“The failure is that there’s no middle ground. All the games in the middle that could have been made but have been squeezed out and we’ve seen all these independent studios get closed down over the last few years.

The net driving force is distribution, and it’s disrupting all distribution channels.

A good overview of advantages and disadvantages of not having comments on your blog, an approach more and more writers take.
For most people, a comment form is an essential part of what a blog is, and most of us enjoy the opportunity to leave feedback (even if we do so only rarely). But there are also plenty of possible reasons why comments are unnecessary, or undesirable.

Thanks for your feedback kalos. I don't think NoteMe is the right program for you - it will never ever do batch email, as this enables spam. You have a valid point about the robustness of sending however, I will take that into account for future versions.

NoteMe is not for automatic / enterprise level notifications it's simply a tool to send yourself a couple of words. There are better tools for what your uses, maybe something like opsview, splunk for example.

If this is feasible I'm sure that antivirus is already doing it?

Yes and SVN (but not svn working copies, it will create a 99% compatible git working copy that interacts with the svn repository)
112  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v3.03.01 - Mar 20, 2012 on: April 13, 2012, 07:42:53 AM
Feature request:
I notice that when I add decoration to a screenshot (SpecialFX, highlights, squares, arrows) and I use one of the SendTo options, it will send the screenshot without the decor. I understand you might want people to purposely "save" the picture, but I'd like to see the default be that the image 'as you see it' is sent, even if it is a temporary copy. If you don't agree with that, perhaps ask if I am sure if I want to send the picture with unsaved changes.

It has caught me out more than once.
That said, amazing program!

113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Email services integration on: April 13, 2012, 03:55:06 AM
Anyone knows any software/tips that will integrate my emails with webservices and/or their apis? I'm happy to try out thunderbird addons, gmail addons, new products etc.

I want to easily send emails to other services. For example:
* Weblinks "send to" > pinboard | instapaper
* bug reports and features i can "send to" > helpdesk
* gift ides to a wishlist etc
* recipes "send to" > evernote

And ideally archive the original email in one step.

I thought surely there must be something but haven't found anything, probably because writing a totally new email client is quite a project. Yes I know about gmail filters and email in, I'm looking for "click click done", not "reply type in an addressbook search, verify email address, send, archive".

Great tip wraith!
Users of Pinboard & NoteMe can quickly send bookmarks to their collection either via wraith's method, or directly, by enabling bookmarking via email.
Or send articles to read later to Instapaper via email-in.

Make the page in MSWord as you want it then save it as an html document. It will do what you want although it won't be much of a webpage.
Depending what you want thoughu you're probably better of using something like Weebly or Squarespace and just focus on writing the content instead of doing html.
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Text replacement app for Windows? on: April 09, 2012, 04:46:36 AM
I'm using TyperTask (free, 53Kb!).  It works in many different programs where previously I had some issues with other programs not expanding. It's been a while so I cannot quite remember the details.
Increase your efficiency by automating your keyboard with TyperTask! This tool simulates keyboard typing, and can be used to instantly type common phrases. Use it to automate chat conversations, website logins, programming code blocks, HTML tags, or anything else you can imagine.

It even has advanced automation features, including launching programs, window activation, delays, and mouse clicks, so it's capable of performing complex tasks. Configuration is easy with simple text files. It has vTask's powerful keyboard simulation engine, so it can handle international codes and system keys such as <Control>.

The included help file demonstrates many TyperTask uses. No installation required.

TyperTask will automate your keyboard when a "signal" is typed.
For example, when you type "hth", it will auto type "Hope this helps!"

Thanks Curt that's very useful.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AllMyApps on: April 06, 2012, 01:18:57 AM
Do you still use this? I noticed you can submit pad files to have your software listed. How is the updating process for software that installs toolbars?
122  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Opinions sought: should I open source Auspex? on: April 05, 2012, 04:17:40 AM
Is there an existing community that will pick up development? From what I've read, you will simply spend the time stimulating the community around your project instead of developing otherwise.
Just open sourcing a project doesn't make it active.

What about giving yourself an incentive to develop it by making it a commercial product?
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: reserved characters in NTFS on: April 05, 2012, 04:05:54 AM
Don't use NTFS. You might be able to mount the partition under linux or boot from something like Hiren's BootCD and rename the offending files.

yep but other people might be using git so it helps to have an easy way to work with it.
