1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Using a batch file to create a hyperlinked png or jpg image. on: April 26, 2015, 05:03:19 AM
For converting an image to base64 I used this freeware multi-platform off-line/command-line Base64 De-/Encoder (no connections, just a happy user). It supports output to stdout so redirecting output directly into the message from a batch-file is easy-peasy thumbs up

My WinSendKeys (DC Thread) can apply 'Paste from ClipBoard' (Ctrl-V) from the command-line, to a specific open Window(title)...

You have quite loose visibility settings allowing any indirect contact (friends of friends?) to access you info, apparently. You are in control, though... FB provides with very strict access, but you have to change that manually.

Be aware that having a (1) directory with ~80,000 files in it will bring Explorer, and other tools looking at that file-list, to a crawl Cry

Well, that's a pitty, PM being discontinued ohmy
I switched when this thread made me aware of it, and prefer it much over Chrome.
I'll now try to switch to Firefox, it seems to need some more attention thumbs up
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Seeking a just-right countdown timer application for windows on: April 14, 2015, 03:25:05 PM
-Has some compatibility problems with Windows 8 (error on exit)
-doesn't remember settings (like where the time was displayed) This might be because of the error above.
You might be able to fix that by applying "Run as Administrator" on it, it probably tries to write to protected registry locations. It's from 2008... huh

Bonz, could you please refrain from 'shouting' in the forum, ALL-CAPS is so 1980's huh
Your questions and remarks are welcome, of course.

What else does it bring for that size? It's rather large at nearly 2 MB (imho). Is that because of the development environment used?

13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Comodo Internet Security -- a cautionary tale? on: April 11, 2015, 11:07:47 AM
I have been using Avast Free for the last couple of years on all my systems, and I'm quite happy with that. Combined with the built-in Windows firewall, and a spam-filter on the systems fetching e-mail, I'm quite confident about security.
I can't compare with Comodo, as I've never installed it, ever, but compared to the, once trusty and lightweight, AVG free, the impact on performance from Avast is barely noticable. Though all the systems involved have at least a core-2 Intel cpu...

That's my  two cents
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: LeDimmer replacement? on: April 11, 2015, 04:54:02 AM
CinemaDrape @ http://www.aurelify.com/cinemadrape/ is a good alternative.
Well, I tried both CinemaDrape (CD) and LeDimmer (LD, downloaded today from Softpedia), but running LD "As Administrator" (I have UAC turned off) is much more intuitive than CD. LD automatically only shows the active window, while CD requires me to select the visible viewport, any time I change focus (though I may have misunderstood the instructions, I didn't get it to work as I want).
LD is probably here to stay thumbs up (Windows 7 x64, single screen, Laptop @Home)

Is there really anything that exciting in 13 to make it worth shenanigans?
Well, it seems that the WPF/xaml designer is finally working, without the major hickups and bugs experienced in all previous versions... embarassed
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Text-To-Speech Freeware? on: April 09, 2015, 01:41:42 AM
The current best text to speech software is Text Speaker.
^ Text Speaker has not been updated for 2½ years, and is certainly not free

I did think about reporting that message as spam, as it sure looks like targeted advertising ohmy

19  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Update of NirSoft's ZipInstaller on: April 02, 2015, 05:58:05 AM
Well, as NirSoft dropped their ZipInstaller, and plenty free installer tools are available (Inno Setup, NSIS, Wix), a lot of software is available with their own installer. A zip-version (portable install) is usually just that, and often available next to the formal installer.

Don't think there is much interest here to start re-creating something that's been abandoned elsewhere, or somebody would have chimed in... ohmy

What happened??? I've been away for a few hours and the $5000 mark is passed Kiss Kiss Kiss
21  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Best programming language to pick up for applications? on: March 29, 2015, 05:27:20 AM
Well, after re-reading the OP, I'd advise to go for AutoIt 3, in favor of AutoHotKey, as the AHK language is quite quirky, compared to the Basic-like and thus (IMHO) readable format of AutoIt 3. I've done a few bigger au3 projects, and at the offstart have looked at ahk, but I couldn't get the grasp of it. Though that may suggest something about my abilities embarassed I think one should feel comfortable with the use of a (programming) language and ahk didn't give me that.

With the tooling provided, it's also rather easy to create a GUI, so that combines it into a win-win tool for automation tools as described. It would be quite a challenge to create anything similar in C#, C, C++, Java or any other general purpose programming language. (as others also said)

They are now where I'd expect 'm: at the bottom of the page, where I can easily ignore them like on many other sites embarassed
Much better.

On my tablet it is too obtrusive, and I'm not concidering to share on any social platform. I don't share anything there, if I can help it.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: pretty-software.com does the same as Find and Run Robot and it is really free ;D on: March 25, 2015, 02:56:55 AM
Pretty Run is actually mentioned in the FARR manual under related programs.

I have always thought it was a nice gesture of mouser to list the competition embarassed.
I don't mind mentioning a competing product, I stumbled over the 'really free' phrase Sad

does the same as Find and Run Robot and it is really free
Why do you suggest that FARR isn't really free? Because it is actually, very much, free.

You can (and probably should) support it by giving a donation to the author, if you are actively using it in your day to day computer activities.
