1601  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Restore programs that were running at system shutdown (with selection) on: May 26, 2011, 05:05:18 PM
The trouble here is that not all applications can restore to the document/project they had open when you want to close them, but that it is nearly impossible to determine what document/project they have open when you close them (externally). There would be so many different methods to try to determine that, that it's nearly impossible to pack that into a 'nifty little tool'.

You'd better have a good look (again) at the Hibernate feature of your computer, as the 'previous machine' you mentioned earlier is not your current computer, and the wrong point of reference. (IOW: "Any assumption made is wrong by default.")
Windows 7 (or Vista for that matter) does a whole lot better a job at hibernating, then Windows XP ever did. And with decent hardware even XP would do that just fine.

A quick google search found me this not too expensive deal
1603  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Zentimo upgrade offer $9,- until 2011-05-29 on: May 26, 2011, 06:00:51 AM
Crystal Rich sent me this offer today:

Quote
Dear USB Safely Remove user,

Only until May 29th we are offering you a unique opportunity to purchase Zentimo
for as little as $9 USD (list price is $29.90 USD)!

Haven't heard of Zentimo, yet? Zentimo is an advanced external drive manager
also developed by our company. Comparing to "USB Safely Remove" it offers more
benefits for active USB and SATA devices users: more informative device menu,
portable device settings, portable apps launcher, TrueCrypt integration and many
other features.

More information about Zentimo & this offer is here:
  http://zentimo.com/usbsroffermay11.htm

Kind regards,
  USB Safely Remove & Zentimo development team,
  http://crystalrich.com

Looks nice IMHO, and might be of interest to others as well.

That's a great idea indeed! Thmbsup
1605  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Which is more important: the gadget, or the software and apps that runs it? on: May 26, 2011, 01:14:04 AM
That's easy: Applications.

I've been stalling on getting an e-reader just because it's (nearly) a single-function aparatus, in favor of a decently sized tablet that can run (almost any) other stuff too, besides being an anything-reader. It's most likely not going to be an iPad though Cool
1606  DonationCoder.com Software / Little Voice Commander / Re: Adding spoken word option on: May 25, 2011, 09:08:49 AM
This however is a perfect case where recorded human voice is superior,

Ok, I understand the reasoning cheesy, then you'd have to find a female beside Renegade, to supply those samples, too (and a config option to select them). An extra request might be needed for that voice, I guess smiley
1607  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Access predefined keys of the windows registry on: May 25, 2011, 05:33:38 AM
Hm, Isn't the 'Favorites' feature of Regedit enough to fit that bill?

You could use the commandline tool reg.exe, that's available from Windows XP and up. A nice description is here, and create a simple batchfile doing what you need.
1608  DonationCoder.com Software / Little Voice Commander / Re: Adding spoken word option on: May 25, 2011, 05:24:29 AM
I dont think the text-to-speech is good enough,

I'd surely have a good look at Windows supplied TTS (if I had a project for that). Current TTS for Windows is quite impressive, IMHO, and it's quite easy to select another voice, or switch from male to female, etc.
1609  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: [Freeware] FadeTop - a visual break reminder that fades the desktop on: May 24, 2011, 04:31:09 PM
But the multi-monitor option is still being worked on (as it currently only fades my main monitor...)? huh
1610  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: MS Word Spell Checker - Selective Failure on: May 24, 2011, 03:09:43 PM
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).

That's nice thumbs up

Also, Apathy's QuickCliq made it as well.
I missed that one, sorry embarassed
1613  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Freewaregenius.com: Another Forty-Three of The Best Free Windows Enhancements on: May 23, 2011, 04:32:07 PM
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)

1614  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Freewaregenius.com: Another Forty-Three of The Best Free Windows Enhancements on: May 23, 2011, 03:58:52 PM
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.
1615  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?
1617  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: When you make your 100'th Post on: May 23, 2011, 05:26:20 AM
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:

1618  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: tablet screens to go blind for on: May 23, 2011, 01:25:42 AM
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
1619  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
1621  DonationCoder.com Software / The Form Letter Machine / Re: The Form Letter Machine and the HTML management on: May 21, 2011, 11:04:41 AM
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.
1622  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?
1623  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
