This is probably too much, but would openproj be usable?
1577  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands on: June 10, 2011, 05:03:32 AM
Was this a lot of work?
Ehm, yes the changelog starts on may 3rd embarassed and I worked on it for 1 to 'a few' hours, 3 or four days a week, but the hardest part was taking generated source from Koda (the AutoIt GUI designer) to Scite without all generated errors and unneeded crap undecided. And then you move some controls a few pixels... ohmy
But I had fun (and inspiration) while working on it, that's the most important gain I had from it thumbs up

should lower the barrier-to-entry

That was the major goal

Chris,

Thanks you for your (planned) effort! It's a busy world, these days tellme
Let's see what you find Grin
1579  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: (Update) GUI Editor for WinButtons: WinButtonEdit 0.8.1 (RC2) on: June 09, 2011, 05:31:16 PM
After testing for a few more days, I made a few improvements to WinButtonEdit RC1:
  • Improved handling of non-96 DPI screen settings, scaling and layout issues resolved
  • Dismissed systemtray icon
  • Improved handling of 'Reload last used WinButtons file' option

It is now WinButtonEdit 0.8.1 (RC2), and included with the download of WinButtons.

There have been no comments or bugreports, so I'm afraid not many people have tested it yet (I won't believe it's error-free Grin), so if there are any remarks, feature requests, bugs found, or a desperate need for the sourcecode (that's still not included), please don't hesitate to ask/report all of that here thumbs up
1580  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shift Kicker 1.1.1.0 on: June 08, 2011, 01:36:36 AM
Almost anything besides the standard AutoHotKey and/or AutoIt icons is good IMHO. It is sitting in the systemtray all day (I've configured W7 not to hide any icons), so it's nice if it's not too ugly Wink

For the (gui) tools I made recently and published on DC, I took a screenshot of the app and migrated that into an icon. But for commandline tools I don't even bother.

And there just closed a Computex fair a few days ago, where a lot of new products are launched. This is the Consumer Electronics category listing a lot of tablets
1582  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Tablet Discussion - in the market to buy on: June 07, 2011, 02:55:29 PM
This list is not too awfully outdated, but not yet talking about any details of the 3.1 Ice Cream update.

There's so much buzz about the subject that it's hard to pick usable links from google  huh
1583  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shift Kicker 1.1.0.0 on: June 07, 2011, 02:38:19 PM
Oh, and making that into an icon isn't that hard
1584  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Shift Kicker 1.1.0.0 on: June 07, 2011, 02:35:14 PM
I tried to find an icon for a muddy boot but no luck. smiley

Here's one or a few  Grin

That's probably caused by eating too many coins tellme
1586  DonationCoder.com Software / DC Member Programs and Projects / Re: GameShui Launcher on: June 07, 2011, 08:13:48 AM
I'm just glad you are doing a .NET(/WPF ? ) implementation of this game launcher, I was going to ask on the other thread why it's not in WPF, because it's XAML rather flexible in layout and easy to make looking good thumbs up, but I'll stick to this thread for now smiley, and not start one (thread and games launcher) myself Wink

Miles, you have looked in the History page to see if there's any mention of that? (I couldn't find anything about that). I stopped using it years ago in favor of Xplorer2, even though I maintained the local translation for some time.
1588  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Suggestions for removing nVidia drivers? on: June 05, 2011, 10:08:48 AM
Do you have the most recent Intel INF (filter)driver set installed? That could help on the stability, and the possibility to get the Catalyst drivers installed properly.

As a side-track:
What you describe here is my main experience with ATI/AMD video cards and Catalyst drivers. I just can't get them to work properly in my PC's (and I have tried several different mainboards as I tend to build/upgrade all my systems from scratch with components bought separately). The only way to get all these systems (and their drivers) working properly for me was to remove the ATI/AMD card and put in a nVidia card with the most recent drivers (usually the WHQL certified release)
The only ATI/AMD graphics chips that work properly for me are the one's built into the laptops we have over here.

Back on track:
The HP OS-(re)install is probably going to dump the original nVidia driver onto the system, it's usually an image kind of install without much intelligence built into it.
1589  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands: WinButtons 3.1.2 on: June 05, 2011, 09:51:49 AM
I've taken quite some time and created WinButtonEdit, a GUI configuration editor for WinButtons configuration files.
Also added a few less major WinButtons features, like standard button surface- and text-color settings, and Group context switching based on the currently focused control. So:

A new release is available: WinButtons 3.1.2

Get the download (including WinButtonEdit) and all info from the original release thread

Requests, complaints, errormessages and other question can be posted in this thread. It's all welcome!

Can you give some motivations for cleaning out the DLL's from your system?
1591  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Should retailers be held accountable for recommendations? on: June 05, 2011, 06:56:21 AM
So I finally got an email back from NewEgg.  They have offered to allow returns with 100% refund on both hard drives, the NAS, or all 3 items with return shipping covered.

That sounds like the proper and to be expected reaction from NewEgg. Congrats it all works out so well thumbs up, despite the hassle you have to go through to get you a NAS...
1592  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Snapshots with VirtualBox on: June 05, 2011, 06:45:01 AM
The scripts should be fairly easy, I guess, haven't any VM's available in VBox to test ATM, but if needed I could create one (on Windows).

I've been using Workrave for some time a couple of years back (I stopped using any of those softwares, to annoying), but can't recall if it does support running some kind of user actions on a break/pause. You could ask on the Bugzilla e-mail group if you can't find this feature, they seem rather responsive.

Bah!  WVGA+ only Sad
Yeah, that's to be expected, a virusscanner that requires a high-resolution display, right... what a foolish design error mad
1595  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Snapshots with VirtualBox on: June 04, 2011, 08:26:14 AM
Would this help in some way? http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2007/Aug-28.html

Haven't seen any tooling that handles that, so far.
I'd go for a scheduler and a few scripts, just a few lines either in Windows or Linux scripting, and both have a decent scheduler.
Creating snapshots to often could put such a drain on the disksystem, that it influences the performance or behavior of the virtual system, so some experimenting would be needed.
1596  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Snapshots with VirtualBox on: June 04, 2011, 08:13:44 AM
Sorry I didn't get the capitalization correct...
Sorry I didn't get the content of your post in my head correctly (must have been reading backward embarassed)
1597  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Snapshots with VirtualBox on: June 04, 2011, 08:03:13 AM
You'd probably have a look at VBoxManage: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch08.html

You already have it, but it's called WPF...

How so? I'm not sure I'm following you.

AFAIR you where coding in .NET earlier, and since 3.0 that comes with WPF. It's not that difficult to code that in C#/XAML, I'd have to start a small 'playing-man' project to come up with code, but time is a bit short ATM.
