6826  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: OneNote 12 (coming in 2006) beta1 is out now... on: November 21, 2005, 05:49:26 PM
Trouble is there isn't any really good OCR software out there. I used OmniPage for a while - but it never lives up to expectation.

The big problem is that even a small number of errors (say 2% which is better than most acheive) still leaves a lot of close editing work to do.

Speach input is even worse.

Handwriting recognition seems to be getting better but OneNote 2003 only seems to accept handwritten data from a Windows Tablet computer. My copy won't read/interpret stuff I write on a Wacom Tablet. It is an annoyance since the rest of Office XP will do it - why can't they simply import the code ???
6827  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Warning: WinRAR bug ??? on: November 21, 2005, 05:00:46 PM
Strange behaviour.

I have a repeatable problem with WinRAR ...

There is a fairly large collection of PhotoShop tutorials in a series of nested folders on my hard disc. I have checked the disk thoroughly and there are no errors. When I use the Wondows Explorer context menu extension to compress the entire folder structure into a RAR file it all seems to go well (except it takes a long time). However, when I test the RAR file it comes up with a number of CRC errors.

I have repeated this a number of times and it happens every time.

It does not happen if I use WinZIP to produce a ZIP file and then use WinRAR to test it.

Odd, I know, but there must be something odd happening with this particular data set.

All I can say is if you rely on WinRAR (which I have for a long time) run a Test to confirm archive integrity after creation. It may be an odd problem that doesn't appear often, but you can guarantee it will be the one archive you need that is affected!!!

We are not alone ...

Actually I have a large box on my desk too (part of the sound card setup) with an extra Firewire  port and optical connections/headphones etc.

Plus multiple USB hubs / multi-card reader / Printer / VCR / Scanner / various remote controls / 7.1 surround sound speaker set.

Add to that a full stereo system and a Polarising Microscope and there ain't much room to move ...

Oh and I forgot to mention the two cats who are always after some attention (usually by walking on the keyboard).

True - but I wanted to verify that the partition copy was valid. I did find a handful of files that seemed to have copy problems - at least I could correct them.

The other thing is I want to keep a load of stuff offline for security, but online for quick access - a quick utility to check integrity means any disk faults can be fixed easily.

I do find Windows FS (FAT and NTFS) handling totally crap at integrity. If you get a bad block on your hard disk the first thing you know about it is when you run CHKDSK - it doesn't even seem to flag errors when you try and load a damaged file!!

Anyway I have settled on two tools: BeyonDCompare 2 and FastSum.

Beyond compare is great for comparing folders of files, whereas FastSum stores hidden MD5 files (either one per file or one per folder) so that you can just hit "Check MD5 data" in the Explorer Context menu. It will flag any files/folders that don't match their MD5 value (so quick to track down problems) and automatically update the MD5 files for any additions since the last MD5 build. Neat little tool and cheap.

I'm not responding well to "something new," though.  Whatever goes there, I think it should tell the reader something, not just a generality.  "Great software" at least lets the reader know the general idea.  Maybe there is something more specific that would be more perfect  - like "unique software" or "software that works," or "software that hops," or "shines" or "flies."

How about "A Coding Revolution" or "Community Coding" or "More bang for your buck" ... oops getting carried away now ...

Moerl,

Actually the database idea is a good one.

Maybe a local SQL DB would be good - you could actually store all your music and downloaded applications and even you documents in it and have instant access.

I have a huge amount of downloaded software (bought and freeware) and could really do with a better way of stroing it that in a huge folder tree.

Not sure I am up to producing it though!

Are you using the latest IntelliMouse drivers? My IntelliMouse Explorer cycles through all active windows as I click the wheel.

Actually not quite true - I have two PCI slots left but no space in my box to fill them as I have other addons that fill up the available slot exits.

I have 5 PCI slots with (1) sound card, (2) 1394/Firewire interface, (3) Network interface

There are also a daughter board for the sound card (which doesn't use a PCI slot but does need an external PCI 'exit' hole, my motherboard USB has two sets of ports (plus CPU status LEDs) which need somewhere to exit to the outside world and are designed to use a PCI style 'exit' hole.

Short of buying a bigger box with more holes, or drilling the case to make extra holes (neither of which appeal) my box is full to capacity. The box also has 4 hard drives, three fans, and 2 CD/DVD type drives. I have one 5.25" slot left so I suppose there may be some potential to poke out the USB ports there (and actually would be quite useful as they would then be front mounted). I might consider that - but I am not sure the cables are long enough ...

It's probably due for a complete reinstall ...

Can't buy extra cards - no more slots  embarassed
6842  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Anyone know a good free program to record streaming audio? on: November 19, 2005, 06:51:32 PM
The only easy solution I have found is URL Snooper (from the Downloads section here) to find the actual link being addressed for the media file and StreamBox VCR (which is easily found in Google) to actually download the file.

I haven't found anything that actuallygrabs the stream now playing - if you find one I would be interested too.

Lots of Text Editors can display line numbers. Try PSPad which is excellent and free.

No I think the only option is to disable ACPI and use APM. All the options are greayed out - which is normal under ACPI.

How about Codie ...

Challenge for you ... you should be able to read the region that someone is visiting from in the browser ... how about a coin specific image for the major economies and a default for the others ;-)
6849  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Needed ... MD5 checksum utility on: November 19, 2005, 02:24:24 PM
I notice in the browser context menu is a 'Compare Contents ..." option. If I use that on all the files flagged so far it says they are identical ???

Strange.

Timestamps should be the smae as they were copied a a straight aprtition copy.
