1  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Announcing .NET 2015 - .NET as Open Source, .NET on Mac and Linux on: November 13, 2014, 04:03:43 PM
^ It's a little more tricky than it looks.

Basically, under this wording, if you are using .NET and you ever assert an IP claim against Microsoft for any reason, you automatically become a provable infringer on Microsoft’s IP because their "personal promise" is automatically withdrawn. So in short,: use .NET, try to sue us, and you're now an infringer.

It says "by any covered code", so I do not understand it as any legal action against MS on anything. It sounds a lot like the patent clause in the Apache license.

It looks like the GPLv3 has something similar as well.

It is strange that it defaults to something that looks like a Win95 app. But perhaps that is because it still supports every OS back to Win95 (and there is even a 16-bit version available for Win3.1). But it would be nice if it included a couple of styles that looked a bit more modern.

To me the functionality is more important though, and the standard orthogonal file manager interface with NC compatible keyboard shortcuts embarassed.

Automagic is similar to Tasker (but has an interesting flow designer to build programs) and can also do things like that. Llama has the advantage of being free though.

I agree with Inbox being a silly name. It looks like it's primarily a mobile app (there is even an iphone version), so perhaps that is part of the reason it doesn't support all browsers.

Just speculating embarassed.

12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recommend image comparison tool, please? on: October 08, 2014, 01:33:49 AM
I think many photo managers have a feature like this.

Lightroom for instance has two modes to help you choose from a set of images; first there is survey, which shows you the selected images side by side as large as possible, and then you can remove the ones you do not like one by one. Once you have a small set of good images, you can switch to compare, which shows you two images side by side and lets you zoom to check out details and such. It works by having one image be the current pick, and then you can cycle the other image trough the remaining images, and if you find a better one, you select that as your pick instead.

I think Daminion, which has been discussed here before, also added some kind of compare view recently.

As it turns out, Java lets you do stupid stuff like this.  huh

But if they name it Windows 10, what about all the legacy software that checks for Windows 1.x by string compare???!

You should try contacting them, I remember from back when I used VueMinder that they had really good support.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What are your favorite Tech News or Science News websites? on: September 20, 2014, 01:43:03 AM
I often check Hacker News, mostly the comments, which are sometimes more insightful than the actual content linked.

(I use hckr news as an interface, because it shows submissions by time, so you can see what was posted since your last visit.)

Interestingly, the Sublime Text forums are broken for a couple of days now. Intended?

The forums have been up again for a couple of days now. It is getting increasingly depressing to follow though -- there are still helpful people, but it feels like it is getting worse Sad.
19  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: KOApproach is now "open source" on: September 19, 2014, 12:37:51 AM
The _proj folder contains sln files, so that is probably a good place to start. It might compile with Visual Studio Express.
20  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Is your editors color theme too dark? on: September 17, 2014, 04:34:37 PM
This post is based on a blog post I wrote recently: Not Quite Monokai

If you feel some of the popular editor color themes are perhaps a bit on the dark side, there is a chance they were originally developed for TextMate, and your Windows editor is not interpreting the colors quite right.

You can look at screenshots here, here, or here, and compare them to how these color themes look in Sublime Text, Atom, Notepad++, and other editors on Windows/Linux.

The difference is due to color spacesw, where TextMate uses Apple's Generic RGB profile by default, and most Windows editors assume sRGB (see the blog post for more details). When people converted the themes from TextMate to other editors, not many did the proper conversion.

Here are some screenshots comparing a few popular color themes. At the top of each screenshot is what the original TextMate theme looks like in Sublime Text 3 on Windows, and below is how the theme looks when the colors are converted from Generic RGB to sRGB. Notice how the contrast between background and text is more pleasing (at least to me), and the red-ish colors look more in line with the rest.

I switched to simply using google calendar in the browser, because of all the programs I tried, it had the best sync with google calendar Grin.
22  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: CLION: A new (cross-platform, commercial) C++ IDE on: September 11, 2014, 02:34:57 PM
It looks promising, and I agree using CMake is probably not a bad thing. I've been happy every time I found projects using CMake instead of autotools/autoconf.

One issue with the current version is that it only supports a very specific 32-bit MinGW install (and does not work with the popular MinGW-w64 builds).
23  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: AdGuard: the better Ad Muncher? on: September 02, 2014, 01:52:55 AM
Does anyone know if AdGuard allows you to disable this behavior of proxying HTTPS traffic?  I'm currently using Ad Muncher and I don't have any complaints about HTTPS connections having too many ads.  However, I think I'm seeing the writing on the wall for AM, so I figure that I'll be moving to something else at some point and I'd rather that my HTTPS traffic just be left alone since I'm not seeing a problem with it.

It looks like 5.10 added support for disabling https filtering on specific sites, I don't know if there is a way to disable it for all.

YouTube's ads alone have me wanting some sort of https ad control.

I've never had YouTube ads here, and I don't really know why. I don't have an ad-blocker inside Chrome (other than Ghostery) -- perhaps it is because I am loggen in on YouTube?

Now Facebook on the other hand ... wallbash
24  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: AdGuard: the better Ad Muncher? on: September 01, 2014, 12:03:22 PM
On one hand it is annoying that AM does not filter https, on the other hand from what I understand, AdGuard does it by installing its own certificate and doing a man in the middle on all your https connections, and I don't know how I feel about that.
