Have a nice trip. You'll be missed here at DC, so hopefully we'll survive the week without you tellme

It's 'limited' to WPA2 protection, so not usable in the scenario for nite_monkey, as he requires WEP protected WiFi at most. Unless he can build his private version of it, downgrading the protection to WEP.

For that kind of money I'd get ViDock 3 or 4 I guess, that holds a 'real' video card, giving a real performance-boost, and can be upgraded if needed.

I have NotesHolder by A!K Research Labs installed, as suggested in another thread on DC

@nudone, I'll support WinButtons for as long as it seems feasible, meaning I'll (try to) solve any issue you may have Cool



I have a Wacom PenPartner2 that I 'inherited' when I got my wife a (proper) Bamboo drawing tablet, but I hardly use it, as I don't do any graphics stuff, most coding and 'investigating' (aka web-browsing)
That PenPartner is so totally un-fit for WinButtons (combined with a 1920x1200 monitor), I've actually been thinking about getting a real touch-screen, but (tmp lack of) financial means have stopped me so far huh
1607  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: In search of ... external video support on: August 27, 2011, 07:27:16 AM
Would this be of help?

And as it doesn't support a proper docking station, maybe a USB dock like this Targus (as offered by Dell) with an extra DVI port could help?
Most likely the performance is not up to par with the expectations or requirements, so the ViDock combined with a multi-monitor card (advice: choose a (mini)DisplayPort model, so a lot of monitors can be connected) could be a better solution.


OTOH, if you need much better graphics power then available in a laptop, you could have bought a more than decent desktop that allows for multiple graphics adapters with multi-monitor capabilities huh.

@nudone
You might be pointing at Photoshop Touch? http://www.photoshop.com/products/mobile
Especially Eazel should be what you need, imho.

Did we miss something important?
The only important missing feature missing so far, after only looking at the website embarassed, is a feature comparison between the Free and the Pro version. And the discount offer on the Order page expired some 4 weeks ago, so probably isn't of use any longer...

For the rest it looks like a useful tool, that might finally induce me to write some proper walk-troughs of some of my tools...

Would be cool as hell if I could also control the TV with it

cause the mouse cursor to jump to the touchscreen button location

I didn't get that far into it, so I don't have any solution for that built in. I'll see if I can anticipate a fix for that Cool

I'm pleased to see that WinButton is now 1.0.0.0
It's WinButtonEdit, the configuration editor for WinButtons, that has gone the 1.0 release embarassed, WinButtons is already on v3.3.2



I tried to do something for Android devices acting as the controller-device by using/modifying PRemoteDroid, but I couldn't get it to work (no WiFi - dev-PC connection available, and USB also doesn't work for me) and the project seems to be abandoned by it's developer(s) Sad

It's amazing - maybe this is all a dream.

Did you forget to break some mirrors, recently, so finally some luck is heading your way? Grin Grin Grin
1614  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: "good" LCD monitors - what are their type on: August 24, 2011, 07:40:46 AM
...it's very good indeed.
Glad it worked out so good Cool thumbs up

I'm not sure what the type of screen is, maybe I can find out from the model number. To me, it looks like it's slightly inferior to the main HP ZR30W screen (s-ips) but a whole lot better than the bog standard screen it replaces.
The docs on the Dell site talk about TFT Active Matrix ('Thin Film Transistor'), and AFAIR that's the old original name for an IPS panel, so assuming s-IPS meaning 'Super-IPS', the HP is expected to be a bit better, but the Dell should indeed be a whole lot better than any TN panel and most VA panels.

Today I saw an announcement from Iiyama on a 24" and 27" full-hd (1920x1080) monitor that support portrait mode, and by using VA panels, claim a viewing angle of 178 degrees. The specs seem to be available from the Japanese site only, and I found this link to a Japanese language pdf huh
1616  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: "good" LCD monitors - what are their type on: August 21, 2011, 09:52:22 AM
You could have a look at the Dell UltraSharp 2007FP model, 1600x1200, IPS, pivot-able and a dot-pitch close to a 30" monitor (0.255 mm vs. 0.25 mm)
1617  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: A bit of help C# and MySql on: August 21, 2011, 09:20:12 AM
if (exist == true)
Why do you code double comparisons? 'exist' is a boolean already, so it's either true or false, writing 'if (exist)' is sufficient.
1618  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Patent Wars: Apple Hits Samsung in EU on: August 19, 2011, 06:35:05 AM
The restriction has already been resized to Germany-only (from EU without the Netherlands where a separate lawsuit has been filed), as the German judge decided he might not have jurisdiction across all of Europe. IMHO he should be dismissed, as that was rather obvious before enforcing his ruling and it now looks like he's been favoring Apple in some way.
1619  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: how does your <insert device here> stack up? on: August 18, 2011, 04:05:25 AM
Hmm, I think I'll wait until Stone 2 is released (they never enable all the features on the first release).

But Stone 1 has been out there for quite some time already, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Stone 2 tellme
It's feature set is already rock-solid Cool

1621  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is Mozilla trying to do? on: August 18, 2011, 03:38:41 AM
I didn't notice any changes at all.
Just an occasional plug-in no longer working because of the version checks built in. Same as from FF4 to FF5. But the (plug-in)updates are usually quick and painless.

Can't see much improvement going from FF5 to FF6 either.
1622  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google to Acquire Motorola on: August 16, 2011, 03:45:22 AM
So what's next? MS acquires HTC?
Well, MS bought Nokia already, so why buy another phone maker? Yeah, to kill more competitors Cry
1623  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Bought a desktop and monitor today on: August 16, 2011, 03:26:14 AM
so I want to know where you're shopping!
It's at the local "Media Markt" (these 3 monitors pages, sorry, all in Dutch, but the prices and specs you can prolly extract from there)
I've been talking about 22"/23" monitors mostly, but they have a few bargains on 24" and 27" as well.
1624  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: WinXP: monitor USB port disconnects when computer is locked on: August 16, 2011, 03:17:51 AM
How is the monitor reacting to the system going into low-power/standby state? My system with DisplayPort connected monitors, switches screen-resolution (to 800x600 from 1920x1200) when the monitor is turned off, with Windows in a Locked state. Didn't test with USB devices yet, but it could be that a stand-by state of the monitors disconnects the USB ports also (the off-state certainly does).
Try connecting your USB devices directly (or using a USB-hub if you need extra ports) to the system, and see if that improves the matter.
1625  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Bought a desktop and monitor today on: August 15, 2011, 01:27:46 PM
The difference between 100 and 180 euro isn't all that small, though, IMO
Correct, but the gross of the 22" monitors is between 130 and 160 Euro, the low-life 100 E model I would never buy myself, not even to give away, and the 180 E models are a bit more shiny than the 160 Euro models.
