Hey, it's a release thumbs up (you could probably drop the 'early beta' IMHO cheesy)

Feature request:
  • Option to switch the currency used. I never see or find US$, Euro's are much more likely (hint: localization)
1577  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / RELEASE: HTML Mail Merge: Excel2Html v2.0.1.2 on: July 27, 2011, 10:19:52 AM
I added a Linux .sh script after some testing on Ubuntu linux, so here it is, a new release:


The what's new is added to the original release thread.

Comments, requests, remarks, etc. are all welcome Kiss

Does that include writing in English? ohmy
1579  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: WinButtonEdit 1.0.0.0 on: July 27, 2011, 07:26:45 AM
Since there have been no further support requests on WinButtonEdit for several weeks, I decided to make a formal release of


It's only a version-bump since the last RC10 release, but to get it requires a re-download of the zipfile at the original release post

Support questions, feature requests or remarks are, as always, welcome cheesy
1580  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / RELEASE: HTML Mail Merge: Excel2Html v2.0.1.1 on: July 27, 2011, 04:15:11 AM
+10MB is chump-change these days
It's a bit annoying to me that to deliver a < 19 kB application .jar file, a download of 15+ MB is needed tellme


I added 2 new command-line parameters to Excel2Html, so here it is, a new release:

… the 10.1 is not available (at least not in Europe).
Should be available in the UK pretty soon, so it's getting closer.  Wink
In Holland, Vodafone has the 10.1v (branded for Vodafone, but the 'fat' 10.9 mm version) available (isn't that available in all the Vodafone countries?), but the new (and thinner, 8.6 mm) 10.1 will only be available somewhere around August/September, AFAIR.
Big disadvantage of the 10.1 is it has a mere 3 mpx camera, opposed to the 10.1v 8 mpx camera. That is going to save you some storage, but cost you image quality I presume.
1582  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / RELEASE: HTML Mail Merge: Excel2Html v2.0.1.0 on: July 26, 2011, 01:33:44 PM
Now that I've solved the formula evaluation issue, as reported by bootz15 I can announce the update:


The what's new is added to the original release thread.

A full re-download is required as I had to replace one of the .jar libraries with a more extensive version ('ooxml-schemas' replacing 'poi-ooxml-schemas') but that's also ~10 MB larger ohmy

Comments, requests, remarks, etc. are all welcome Kiss
1583  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 26, 2011, 11:49:43 AM
cell formulas aren't calculated in the the html output (only the formula definition is displayed).
It is supposed to display the result of the calculation, not the formula, with some exceptions (imposed by the POI project...) : It can not process custom/user formulas, as it doesn't know how to handle the VBA involved. And it won't until someone implements a VBA interpreter in Java ohmy
There are more restrictions on formula's as described in this Apache POI page
I tested with quite simple '=J2+J3' etc. formula's (that didn't get into the demo data, but will be in the next update) and that works just fine.

Can you give an example of a formula (and an expected result, if possible) that doesn't compute?

I did some investigation, and it seems I need to re-evaluate all formulas when reading them. That requires another library jar (ooxml-schemas instead of the much smaller poi-ooxml-schemas) so the download will increase quite a bit. I'll release v2.0.1.0 shortly after this message (v2.0.0.1 is already available with just minor changes, but I didn't have time to write the announcement).

move my copy to a new machine without having to purchase a new license?
Yep, I did that before, and all it wants is the Plus code. It's a lifetime license after all thumbs up
1586  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: HTML Mail Merge on: July 25, 2011, 04:56:49 PM
I fixed the download links in the release message, thanks for reporting that. As a workaround you could have gone to the DCMembers page, and grabbed the download from there.
1587  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / RELEASE: HTML Mail Merge: Excel2Html v2.0.0.0 on: July 25, 2011, 01:33:41 PM
After a few days of muttering around in Java, and testing nearly all features, I can now announce:


A complete re-write of Excel2Html v0.x, but now in Java, instead of AutoIt 3.

The download can be found in this release message, linking to my Excel2Html DCMembers page

Any issues, remarks etc. can be posted in this thread.

I expect that bootz15' (and probably others') issues regarding the AutoIt/Excel clashes will be gone (as both are now eliminated...)

Most I tried and bought had a 15- to 90-day trial. (And/but I hardly buy any software, usually try to find OSS/Free ones)

The only trouble with on-board video is that it's often impossible to get a multi-monitor setup. The selected MSI board does offer 3 video output connectors, so that should be no problem in this case, unless the monitors don't have DVI and HDMI inputs. (DVI-I can be connected to standard VGA monitor using an adapter, and HDMI can be converted to DVI if need may be)
Combining DVI/HDMI with a VGA connected display is a setup I'd like to avoid if possible, because of the rather flimsy (analog) VGA display, compared to either DVI or HDMI (digital) connected displays.
It all depends on the monitors used tellme

then would not routers update good data with corrupted data as an "update" across the cloud?
Most likely the routers would have died/crashed from the SEMP undecided

Hm, I'll wait and see. They'll be severely hampered now that the remains of Novell have stopped development of Mono undecided

A quick much longer then I expected reaction:

Case:
Looks just fine to me, though I don't like all those 'Christmas-lights' it has

CPU & Mainboard:
If you don't need SLI you could choose the MSI P67A-G45, it's about $20 less, but the second PCIe-x16 port has only 8 PCI-lanes instead of 16. MSI is a fine brand of mainboards.

GPU:
Use what works in your set-up. Personally I've had lots of trouble with the ATI-based cards (on MSI mainboards, amongst others), so I'm sticking with nVidia chips, unless there's a 0/0 swap policy available. The eventual speed-per-cost differences are quite small and dependent on the games you want to play, and what chip-brand the games are optimized for.

RAM:
I'd go for Kingston or another known brand, and not any of them 'over-clocking' DIMM's as they're (imho) not worth the extra money.
Do get a set of 4 pre-matched DIMM's, you can then rely on the supplier to have matched them for working properly together. (All using chips from the same production-batch, usually)

<will update in about 1 hour>

PSU:
You will want a silent one with a big fan, and about 450 - 500 watt, 80-plus Gold, from a brand like Cooler Master, be Quiet or Antec. It has to last for probably 4 or 5 years (looking at your current system), and you could spend the extra $20 you can save on the mainboard.
A modular PSU usually means it has connectors on the PSU casing and you just mount the cables you need. Connectors make it extra expensive, and introduce an extra possible point of failure, so unless the looks of the inside of the case is really important, you won't need a modular PSU.

MISC:
Monitor(s): Ok.
Harddisk(s): Be sure to either pick a 7200 rpm disk or a SSD for the boot-drive. If having a SSD, then get at least a 7200 rpm model for your applications-disk [D:], and if storing large amounts of data, like Virtual PC images or photo's, that could go on an energy saving 5400/5900 rpm disk [E:]
SSD: 64 GB is rather small for installing WIndows 7 and some applications, so 120 GB or bigger would definitely be preferable, but the cost will be the limiting factor.
Sound: Ok. Speakers/Headset?
Keyboard/Mouse: If they're not worn out then just re-use that, and replace when worn out or defective.
DVD: Ok if it's SATA, if not, just spend the extra $30 for a DVD-burner or some more for a BD-reader/DVD-burner combo drive. BD-burners are still quite expensive, and DVD's can hold enough photo's for archiving. Backups either go on external harddisks, 'the cloud' or tape.
WiFi: Sure you don't want wired network? Usually the ping-delays are lower and transport speed higher when playing on-line games.

After-market CPU-coolers: If over-clocking: When going for <= 5% extra speed, the standard Intel coolers are usually fine, at least when mounted properly (and on i5/i7 processors). When going for 5 - 10% get a big but silent cooler. When aiming beyond 10%, get a water-cooled setup, and also cool the GPU with it.
1595  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Win 7, XP mode, & other first install queries on: July 21, 2011, 10:42:01 AM
You should select/highlight the desired partition (100 GB) before clicking on Continue (or what was that button called), and maybe even format it, but I'm not sure about that.
1596  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2012 / Re: NANY 2012: Got Space? Disk Utility. on: July 21, 2011, 01:47:57 AM
Nice tool thumbs up

Feature request:
I have a subdirectory of my D: drive, SUBSTed to drive F:. This shows them both of type Local, with all the same figures. Could the type show 'Subst' or 'Mapped', and optionally where it is mapped to?

1597  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: md5 / sha1 hashes What's the point? on: July 20, 2011, 05:18:56 AM
We also use the md5 to verify ftp downloads on unix as that sometimes messes up downloads.

I have this set to automatically display any microsoft related websites in IE and have had no issues in FF3, 4 or 5.
Most likely it's related to our webapplication, as it also slows down IE quite a bit after a few hours of inactivity (It's for workhours registration, and I keep the page open during the day). Paging back/forward a week within the app solves it. I'll discuss this with the developer (a colleague) to see if it's something he can solve.

I'm now re-installing it on my system, will report back with results later this week.
1599  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: SpecifSite - browser choice on individual basis on: July 20, 2011, 01:53:51 AM
The idea has popped up before: IDEA: rule-based browser chooser
And this is also on-topic: -1 for BrowserChooser
And this is probably the mother of all these ideas: IDEA: Choose which browser will open a url from external app that also has the link to BrowserChooser what could probably fulfill in the first needs.

Just run FF with IE TAB addon

I've been using/trying that up until FF 3.6, but it just bogged down/crashed the entire FF instance if I also have several 'normal' tabs open. Didn't yet try it with FF 5 (FF 4 I only used very briefly), but I should prolly give it a go, now that I've got a new PC at work Cool
...
I first had to uninstall an older version of IETab Plus to get the new one installed, but it seems to work at first glance. I'll have a better look/try the rest of this week, thanks Carol thumbs up
