Use Gmail to Convert Word Docs to HTML
If you have a MS Word doc that you want to convert to HTML, the last thing you’d ever use is the “Save as Web Page…” command in Word. Talk about terrible code! Instead, you can send the attachment to your Gmail account and use the “View as HTML” link. Once the page is displayed in your browser, go to “View Source” and copy the code. Most of it is very clean and quite useable.

Would this be usable? http://word-to-html.com/ (installs locally, I didn't test it though)

Same as usual:
- Have/get/find/ask an idea
- Start early
- Document while coding
- Add features sparingly but complete
- Test, test, test (and fix bugs/refine features)
- Test some more
- Release just in time cheesy
- Update after a few days/weeks to make feature complete and bug-free

Or maybe anandcoral's Stick-a-Note from last year's NANY could be expanded to also display any input sent to the currently focused app, etc.?

What language are you using? Dashes aren't legal in a lot of languages (I can't think of one where they are legal)
The (good?) old language Cobolw has them. The dialect I've been using (MF) doesn't even accept underscores as a valid character in variable-names, AFAIK ohmy

Description
KeepUpApp is a tool to keep your applications and services running, where they may be stopping/crashing for undetermined reasons.
This is achieved by continuously checking if the executable or service is still running, and starting the application or service if it's not found running.
KeepUpApp handles 32 bit and 64 bit applications, and services, on the local computer. It currently does not handle applications or services on remote systems.
If any 64 bit applications are configured, a 64 bit instance is extracted from the main executable (if not already found in the current directory), that checks these 64 bit applications.
This extracted 64 bit executable is removed when KeepUpApp is stopped.

KeepUpApp was developed for the N.A.N.Y 2013 event, as organized by the DonationCoder.com forum community

Features
  • Keep applications (32 and/or 64 bit) and services running
  • Supports multiple instances of the same exe, determined by Application-parameters and/or WorkingDir
  • GUI configuration screen
  • Pause temporarily and/or start paused
  • Tray-icon can be hidden, and hidden at startup
  • Extensive command-line support, check the KeepUpApp.readme.txt file
  • Updated on demand if mouser's DCUpdater is installed

Planned Features
  • Add a way to Create a shortcut/registry entry to autostart KeepUpApp when the user logs in
  • Any feature requests...?

Screenshots

Settings screen, 32 bit application:
[attachthumb=1]
This application is ignored for 3 seconds after it has stopped. If not still back active then, it's restarted, and then ignored for 10 seconds to allow processing of any startup procedure/refresh stuff, etc.

Settings screen, 64 bit application:
[attachthumb=2]
This shows how a Command prompt is opened in the configured directory, and as soon as the current directory is changed or the window is closed, a new instance of the Command prompt is started in that location. CMD.exe is a 64 bit application on 64 bit Windows versions...

Settings screen, browse for active application:
[attachthumb=3]
All currently running applications and services are listed. The list isn't actively refreshed during browsing. For some applications and services the working directory or command-line parameters can't be retrieved...

Tray-icon context menu:
[attach=4]

Usage
Installation
  • Install on a (Windows) computer
    • Create a new directory
    • Unpack the zip-file
  • Configure applications or services to monitor
    • Run the (main) executable KeepUpApp.exe
    • Select 'Settings...' from the context menu of the system-tray icon, or use the -set command-line parameter
    • Add applications to the list

Using the Application
After adding some application or service to be monitored, KeepUpApp should be kept active to monitor the state of these applications. In the unforeseen event that such application stops working, either because the user closed it, or it has stopped for some unknown reason, it will be automatically restarted.

Uninstallation
  • Stop KeepUpApp
  • Remove all files from the computer

Known Issues
  • Opening the Applications browser ('...'-button next to Application field) takes some time ohmy

+1 on all Renegade said thumbs up

@Josh, when working with Eclipse, I always use the default format layout (Ctrl-Shift-F), as it's a Java-layout standard on it's own, only I've made line and comment widths a bit wider then the default 80 characters, 160 is usually most optimal.
Aligning variable declarations does make source more readable, so that's an option I tend to enable for projects with larger sources as well.

Try like this: http://stahlworks.com/dev/index.php?tool=split There's an example called "splitting text files by no. of lines"

For that kind of stuff, Stahlworks' Swiss File Knife has been a most excellent choice. Thmbsup

Any reason you are going Intel over AMD?
Simple: Less heat, more speed! thumbs up

@Skwire
As others said: Go for 16 GB of RAM, Windows 7 runs better with that amount.

And: You could do with a somewhat less specced PSU, 500 - 550 Watt should be more than adequate, unless you have 3+ HDD's or a second high-powered graphics adapter to add.
