@wraith808: That all makes perfectly good sense.

so again, why is it special?
A few more thoughts:
  • They (MS) explicitly don't want you to do this
  • You could exchange the int? by Int32 and get a pointer to that

@cthorpe : That site is, though a bit full, very clear in it's intentions, a relief to read it, thanks for the pointer! Oh, and a useful writers tool indeed smiley

Read another software tip in a magazine today: ImmersEd from www.tajuta.com, that seems to extend the uncluttered writing environment with a few nifty gadgets, that can be helpful when writing, gotta start testing though.

Like 40hz said, there are tons of tools...
1603  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows equivalent to GNOME's typing break? on: May 07, 2011, 03:29:47 PM
Well, besides Workrave, that's rather configurable IMHO, so can be as lightweight as you want, there's the commercial Workpace, and it also has a few nifty features like counting the number of keyboard- and mouse-clicks, and is as configurable as Workrave. (I've used both in the past, but stopped using tools like that; just listen better to what the old body says, and take more breaks/stops).

But Instant Boss, by our 'own' App103, sounds just as what you need, indeed, +1

Another vote for a separate thread from here thumbs up
1605  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 07, 2011, 09:27:02 AM
And finally, a Stack Overflow article on the subject, showing a nice extension method that might come in useful
1606  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 07, 2011, 09:12:03 AM
There's this blog article from around when nullable types where introduced (.NET 2.0), that has some more interesting info

And also this blog post that puts a claim around my original assumption... (I did not check these claims/examples though)
1607  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 07, 2011, 08:59:14 AM
I've done no research on the subject, though I've done some stuff, including nullable types, in C#. But not in this direction. Nevertheless...

I kind of assume you read this msdn subject explaining nullable types?
It states:
Quote
T can be any value type including struct; it cannot be a reference type

This makes me suspect the actual implementation is something handled at compile-time, so pointers for getting at it won't exist during runtime?

1609  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Database for a Desktop? on: May 07, 2011, 07:56:34 AM
Looking at SQLite, have you investigated the SQLite endorsed ADO.Net provider?

I especially like the headline message on the site:
Quote
This is a fork of the popular ADO.NET 2.0 adaptor for SQLite known as System.Data.SQLite. The originator of System.Data.SQLite, Robert Simpson, is aware of this fork, has expressed his approval, and has commit privileges on the new Fossil repository. The SQLite development team intends to maintain System.Data.SQLite moving forward.
(Emphasis added)

The phxsoftware.com's version seems to have stopped progressing

Games explorer notices eight of them
Problem here is that games have to register with Games Explorer, during install usually, to be noticed by GE, so it's not directly GE's 'fault', IMHO ohmy
1611  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software recommendations for writers on: May 07, 2011, 07:18:47 AM
I'm not a writer (yet) but had a short look at both writing tools mentioned, q10 and WriteMonkey.
Seems like q10 is kinda dead, in the development part.
WriteMonkey seems to be alive and kicking, and has somewhat better/more/cleaner features, so I'll have a longer look at it during this summer. Hope to report here later.

Silly question: You have Customizer 10000 Plus or Customizer 10000 already installed, before applying this update?

If the data is not available as a download, you can either use scraping to get at it, or try to find other resources with equivalent content...

I usually keep an eye (in a separate Tab of course) on that page to see all recent forum posts
1615  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Tinjaw, gone? on: May 06, 2011, 01:50:51 AM
What is that? Is there a link to current members online or something?
Sure, the 'frontpage' of the forum, bottom of the page, here's a sample of just now:

Oh, and why for learning to program? I already know how to do that (in several ways) Cool

This is just great fun (and quite affordable, too) Thmbsup

Now to find out if and how long it will take to ship to Europe huh

I've seen him, here, today, in a flash Grin

Something or someone pulled him over, thanks for that!

Why would you want to limit that request to AutoHotKey apps?
And there are several other threads on most used/useful apps already Grin
1622  DonationCoder.com Software / ProcessTamer / Re: Periodically re-apply force settings on: May 05, 2011, 01:22:42 AM
Then ask you boss/manager what he wants you to do: work, and be able to work undisturbed/continuously, or several times a week sit and wait until some silly process/tool is done with 'examining' your working tools?

A carpenter doesn't get his hammer and saw checked a few times a week to see if he hasn't killed hurt anyone with it, does he?
1623  DonationCoder.com Software / ProcessTamer / Re: Periodically re-apply force settings on: May 04, 2011, 04:59:46 PM
<rant>
You should drop the PC on the sysadmins desk shouting it's unusable in this way, and they HAVE to do something about it. And take at least 5 more colleagues with you to impress them a bit.

It's absolutely unacceptable to get this kind of stuff pushed down our throats by these monopolistic monsters Sad

I hope the underlying message is clear embarassed

I think the vertical separator is an improvement  :Thmbsup

1625  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: May 04, 2011, 02:13:34 AM
I was thinking it might be a bit clearer if there were some border around the buttons or if the buttons were displayed more like a vanilla toolbar
