26  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Mind Mapping Software - What are the current top players now? on: October 09, 2014, 03:03:45 PM
Lately I've been using Gingko App - https://gingkoapp.com/app.  Free for 3 trees, but you can upgrade for unlimited trees.  It's a little bit different take on organization- not rightly a mind-map, but more of a mind-tree.

Two statements from the developer that show the aim of the application:
Quote
What goes in each column?
The principle is:
Left → Right = General → Specific.
There is no wrong way to use Gingko, and you can always drag things around later.
What can I use it for?
Short answer is: anything.
Use Gingko any time you want to write or organize something hard.

They have an introduction on youtube:

There are several that do most of what you're looking for... the only difference I see in what you're proposing is *not* keeping track of what they are using.  I suppose if there's someone out there that doesn't like the idea of the software keeping track of what they're doing, this would be a boon.

Strange... I use the Windows and Mac versions, and I haven't noticed any(?) of those feature differences in use.  The one I'd possibly use (the corkboard one) I'd just assumed wasn't possible, so hadn't even tried- I just use it to keep bits from the folder that it represents in a visual manner.
29  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 11:43:37 PM
After all, NANY does stand for "NEW APPS for the new year" not "Stuff already released that we just want to give some publicity to"

+1 - New means new, and any attempt at widening that scope detracts from the frantic comraderal push to create something within the time frame allotted. You can't be in the moment ahead of time...it just doesn't work that way.

I don't see how this is valid... or how the current rules even apply to this, truthfully.  You can work on it for as long as you want to under the current rules.  It just can't be *released* (which is a nebulous term) before NANY.  The only frantic push is if you put off developing your application until the deadline.  Some years... I've been in that number.  Others... not so much.

Why not do like NaNoWriMo?  They've had similar discussions... and decided what fit... and anything else just goes into the Rebel category.  We don't really want to be exclusive, I'd not think.  That just doesn't seem in the spirit of NANY.

A few articles on it:

Personally, I use Evernote for such things as it has built in syncing.  But I can see the appeal.

I am, as usual smiley  Have one story that I need to finish for a submission, then I'm going to start outlining what I'm going to do.  As usual, mine will probably be a rebel project- more specifically a game for NaGaDeMon.
33  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Pledge: Markdown Previewer on: October 08, 2014, 02:15:56 PM
it should work with anything.  Basically, whatever file you have up, I'd hook into the filesystemwatcher for that particular file, and when it is changed (i.e. saved), I'd re-render it.  That way you can use any editor... and still have the benefit of preview as you go.

That's the idea, anyway.
34  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / NANY 2015 Pledge: Markdown Previewer on: October 08, 2014, 10:38:58 AM
I've gotten into Markdown in a big way, and one thing that I miss from my mac when I'm writing on windows is Marked.  So just like last year when I did the overlay tool from a tool that I found on the Mac, I'm going to do something similar to Marked for Windows.

From the Marked site:

Marked is a previewer for Markdown files. Use it with your favorite text editor and it updates every time you save. With robust features for previewing, reviewing and exporting beautiful documents, you can work in plain text while reveling in rich formatting.

NaNoWriMo 2014 Trial - for Mac and Windows
Scrivener's first users were Wrimos - I posted an early beta of Scrivener for the Mac on the NaNo Technology forums back in 2005, and those initial users kindly spread the word about Scrivener and provided feedback that has helped shape and improve the program. It has therefore been our great pleasure to give something back by sponsoring NaNoWriMo for the past few years, and so here we are sponsoring NaNoWriMo 2014, with some great offers for those taking part. We're also offering a special trial version that will last you all the way throughout November, even if you've tried Scrivener before - read on for details.

Special Trial Version
Scrivener's trial normally runs for thirty days of use, but so that you can start using Scrivener before NaNoWriMo begins without worrying about the trial expiring part-way through November, the special NaNo trial available on this page will run from the moment you start using it all the way up until 7th December. So you can download it, get used to its features, use it for your writing throughout November, and if you like it you can buy Scrivener at a discounted price using one of the special offers below.

50% Discount for All NaNoWriMo 2014 Winners
If you achieve your personal target to become a NaNoWriMo 2014 Winner, you will be eligible for a 50% discount off the regular licence of Scrivener (which is normally $45 for the Mac version and $40 for the Windows version). Details will appear on the Winner Goodies page at the start of December.

20% Discount for Everyone Else
Even if you don't reach your target this year, you can still get 20% off the regular price of Scrivener by entering the discount code NANOWRIMO into the coupon code text field of our online web store.

Quick rule of thumb: if you don't want anybody to know what you're doing online, at the very least don't do it at work or in school.

This!

In the case of Dr. Who or StarTrek ( and NG was far better IMHO) I think it's not so much we miss the old versions of the shows as much as we miss the old version of ourselves that got so much enjoyment from watching them.

Had to give a shout out for DS9, which was my favorite for various reasons.
38  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: will they know? on: October 07, 2014, 11:12:58 AM
There are ways around it... but in general, most workplaces frown on the things that would get around it.  Connect via https to secure communications.

That is what I'm thinking is the next step.  But this particular way- dishing the same content to all is easier to test.

Well, I'm in that holding pattern.  It would seem better and more professional not to let you get this far... especially as it says 'Ping Someone!' with no inkling of whom to ping.

Not all of the Doctor's companions were hot babes.

No.  Really?!?   Grin

We should have another poll for companions.  For me it's between Martha Jones and Amy Pond.

Musician Shows How to Sing Two Notes at Once in Mesmerizing Video

in Music | October 6th, 2014

Anna-Maria Hefele, a musician based in Munich, has an unusual talent. She can sing two notes at once. In the music world, it’s known as polyphonic overtone singing, and it’s believed that the practice originated and still endures in Mongolia. Above, Hefele offers a pretty captivating five-minute display of her technique. On her website, she notes that she offers concerts, lecture performances, and workshops in overtone singing. In fact, there’s a workshop being held later this month near Salzburg, Austria. Find updates on Hefele’s Facebook page. Enjoy!

She's pretty amazing! (She's also rather pretty too.  Wink )

Avi Kaplan from Pentatonix can do this too.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight

His parts in this song merge throat singing with dubstep overtone.

As far as I know, each partition on a hard disk is assigned a volume serial code by the NTFS file system first, then a drive-letter is assigned. Possibly the sort order in the pane sorts on volume serial instead of the drive letter as you expect. 

This is quite low-level and most likely to be altered in the registry. Fixing this could take as much as downloading a new fresh iso...which is most likely the better option as you don't trust the copy you have at hand. At least there is also a 64-bit iso to play with.  smiley

That's the other option that I've seen- in the disk management utility, you can change that sort order.  Because I had an old drive with windows, and then installed another drive and set that to C, that drive was in the wrong order.  I was able to fix it in the disk management utility.

No, not currently... but I could add that for a setting.  You can change the size of it manually, and then change the settings to stretch, so that it will always stretch the image to the size of the overlay rather than the other way around.

^This.  Which is why I was waiting on the screenshot that Tomos asked for before chiming in.

All I have to say is that I see these posts on the guitar, and realize how far I really have to go.  I just wish I hadn't taken so many shortcuts when I was younger on the piano... a lot of that would come in useful now  embarassed
