But the multi-monitor option is still being worked on (as it currently only fades my main monitor...)? huh

Where did you copy it from? Another Word document, or plain text?

Could you reset the attributes to the default (select + Ctrl-Space) that usually works if I have issues like these, or paste it as plain text (using Notepad++ as an intermediate, but there are several tools discussed here, that I don't want to install on my work-PC, that can do that for you).

Also, Apathy's QuickCliq made it as well.
I missed that one, sorry embarassed

Oh, and I really like the way I can manipulate the sidebar on that site Grin (but that's more of a SSC nature tongue)

And I'm proud to say one of my applications (Find and Run Robot) made the cut.
Yup, and also skwire's Drop Zone made it there. smiley

For a lot of the tools mentioned there are at least 2 equally nice alternatives, but some are indeed real gems that should be in the spotlight every now and then.
1582  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Strange phone problem - can anyone help? on: May 23, 2011, 01:25:37 PM
Assuming it's a Dect phone, isn't anything else in the 2.4 GHz band disturbing the signal to that phone? like a wifi router from your ADSL connection, or something like that.
Even if the frequencies are (a bit) different, a strong signal transmitted from close proximity can overwhelm a receiver so much that it can't correctly receive or separate the normal equipment it's designed for. And that would explain why the replacement set has exactly the same issue. That the interference is only when dialing 3's is just an unlucky coincidence, I guess.
Putting either aside for several feet should significantly improve the behavior. (that is assuming you have a wifi router or other transmitting equipment, like a CRT-TV nearby)

What's the link you have used so far?

It's not only the number of posts (for some users) that's impressive, also the number of registered users.
I shot this (and anonymized a bit) a few minutes ago:

Everything is simply too small. Mobile software is designed for 10-year-old girls' fingers. Not mine.
I do agree, but the high resolution (& quality) screen of my Motorola Milestone (aka Droid) allows me and my big hands to use multicon to get more icons on the screen without problems Cool
1586  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: windows file manager with single-click navigation? on: May 22, 2011, 12:17:54 PM
xplorer2 has that option, but the 'lynx' navigation it doesn't, AFAICS. It does feature navigating using BackSpace and Enter keys, though, much like Norton Commander and many of it's look a likes.

taskmgr pro
Auto Kill Any Process
SmartClose
These would have fitted nicely in the previous request post that brought us eventually Movie-ize, and would have saved 4wd a bit of effort. ohmy But I'm quite sure he enjoyed creating Movie-ize cheesy

I assumed you where creating an application yourself, having this feature request..., as usual any assumption is wrong by default Grin
It's the Desktop App running on Win XP...don't know which language is made with...
In that case: You can't. (Without creating an external 'monitor' tool that detects you/the user opening the combo and pointing at an item, offering a clickable link based on a list you provided earlier)
Hmmm, come to think of it, my WinButtons can detect the executable being loaded, and showing a specific window with buttons, that could open a webbrowser when clicked. But it can't (yet) react on a specific control selected, or hide while it's not selected. Ah, a (double/triple) feature request for WinButtons!  tellme thumbs up

@mouser: You'd probably better move this one to the Coding Snacks/Post New Requests Here board, I'll pick it up asap.

Edit: I finally see it's specific to FLM,  embarassed missed that earlier. But I'm quite sure a combobox can't offer clickable links for each item, next to the normal selection, though a listbox could be made to do that, AFAICS.
1589  DonationCoder.com Software / The Form Letter Machine / Re: The Form Letter Machine and the HTML management on: May 21, 2011, 08:30:01 AM
What environment? (desktop app, mobile, web), what OS?, what programming language?
1590  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Allowed Characters in Windows Environment Variable Names on: May 21, 2011, 06:42:22 AM
Though Windows seems to support Unicode environment variables, not all applications support them, and probably wont get that support until they are 'upgraded' to support Unicode from the ground up Cool.

Any time I've had to define my own, I sticked with plain ascii characters a-z and 0-9, and sometimes an '_', anything else could turn up problematic in a batch file (where I use environment vars primarily).

If it's for use in your own application, and you want users to set them from the standard Windows configuration screens, I'd stick with things typable on a standard US keyboard, or else the instructions to set them could be awkward, at least.

Any chance of a x mins before fade warning ...
I'd go for the x seconds before fade warning, 15 seconds should be enough to press Ctrl-S once more Cool
1593  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Open images without program window showing. on: May 19, 2011, 05:57:18 AM
Actual batch file in use:

Quote
"C:\Documents and Settings\Pilgrim\My Documents\Received Files\Frameless\Frameless.exe"
"C:\Documents and Settings\Pilgrim\My Documents\Received Files\001_screenshot_1.jpg" 100 100

The exe path has spaces, so should be quoted as well. (corrected above)

The story continues, not with high dpi's but a 27" with lots of pixels combined with fine viewing angle and touch capability press release

That would make a huge smartphone  Grin
1595  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: tablet screens to go blind for on: May 17, 2011, 10:46:47 AM
There's more 300 dpi coming to consumers, obviously, though this press announcement is 'merely' about e-paper, but it's cool, IMHO.

@tajuta Welcome to DC thumbs up

I like the way you pick up these issue-reports, great Thmbsup
1597  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software recommendations for writers on: May 17, 2011, 01:36:24 AM
I really like the way it's starting to shape up, but it's still quite buggy, unfortunately.
You did report that to the developers, I presume?

Two words (besides the obvious two): Axcrypt and TruecryptThmbsup

40hz already gave the 2 most obvious away  Grin

My mantra is always: "Wire if you can. Wifi if you must."

I'd expand that with: "Powerline if all else fails"

Only read about these adapters, and the current generation seems to be doing quite fine, but you really need good quality wiring, and no electric motors (or other distortion sources) running on the same wiring, to have a reliable connection.
