I keep finding stuff in the 'nice numbers' category: Even though I missed the 444444th signed up user, now I captured number 445464:

For collections of several varieties, Datacrow is often used, it has several templates leaning in that direction, and a highly optimized database back-end.

Well, with modern display-drivers and screens, it seems the entire display is inhibited when in standby/off, and Windows shakes/resizes all it's visible windows to the last, or the primary, awake monitor it still sees. And also resets the other virtual screens to something like 640x480 pixels.
I see this behavior on my dual-DP setup, where I leave the (work) computer running overnight, but turn off the screens to preserve some power. Any window I leave open is moved and resized to the left-upper 640x480 of my primary monitor Sad
My current solution is to close all (well, almost all) applications, auto-saving their last window-positions and sizes, and re-opening them the next morning. Exceptions here are Outlook, that I minimize to the tray by default, and other trayed apps like SSC, that aren't affected, unless I forget to minimize them.

Haven't found a solution, other than to minimize all windows to the system-tray, to avoid this behavior. But, I haven't yet done a thorough search for this either embarassed

How are the monitors connected to the computer? HDMI, DP, DVI, VGA?

84  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Beware the Samsung rootkit on: February 16, 2014, 05:49:30 AM
Another approach could be like we do here: Despite the fact we have several Samsung phones and tablets, we never installed the Kies software, just let Windows install the usb-driver on first connect, required to access the memory, and install updates directly from the phone/tablet. thumbs up

Small typo in the second line? Replace .7z with .zip, IMHO huh

Well, no more vendor lock-in than laptops and such... right?
Well, yes and no, with this concept you get the illusion you can replace components easily, and it probably is true now, but come back in 3 years or so, and there are still no 3rd party components available/allowed because of license/copyright issues, and the original vendor is either out of business or no longer supporting this type of replacement modules, but you can of course buy their new product... then what's the use of even spending any energy on it? You still need an upgraded/improved/extended computer.

Conclusion: This one's not for me.
87  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Project Christine - Modular PC from Razer on: February 11, 2014, 09:12:43 AM
2 remarks:

1) This shouts "Vendor Lock-In" all around the place, at volume 12+

2) Seen similar before in the early 90's: Tandon Computers modular upgradeable computers (no pictures, unfortunately Sad)
(disclaimer/spoiler: I worked for a Tandon Computer Dealer at that time)
88  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Programmers: What size monitors do you guys prefer? on: February 04, 2014, 08:10:03 AM
LG 27EA83R-D
If you're aiming for a single-screen solution, I'd definitely have a look at this or a similar, super-high res, monitor. But do have a good test in the shop to view the actual brightness of the screen, that is, IMHO very, important too. You may need to make use of the return-policy, when available, if it's not good enough in your environment (like a very bright, sun-lit, location or whatever).

The price definitely sounds right thumbs up

I hope I havent put you to too much trouble on this one Ath, and thanks for the offer Thmbsup
NP, I was just investigating/interested, hadn't started working on anything yet Wink
91  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: One of these thing is not like the other - Finding Unique Numbers on: January 31, 2014, 05:21:25 AM
A few questions upfront:
  • How to determine the number of columns?
  • What's the standard file-format, Excel (xls, xlsx), CSV, LibreOffice (odf)?
  • What's the desired output? Messagebox, console, file: format?
(More to follow, probably, depending on the answers smiley)

What application name to use, sImgurUploader?
AFAICS, it requires a callback URL, suggestions?
And where can we change/replace the API key used by sImgurUploader? Found it, {userprofile}\AppData\Roaming\Skwire Empire\sImgurUploader\sImgurUploader.ini

I fail to understand this quest for old software. huh
Please try to explain why you would want to start using this very old, and unsupported, software. There are so many, much better and modern, alternatives available.

I can't download:

An Error Has Occurred!
You are not allowed to access this section
Get the file at the bottom of the first post, *not* the 'Download' link... Now it's fixed.

Today I received my NANY 2014 mug, so by tradition I took a photo of it in a 'related context', being a tablet that I wrote my WinButtonsWebServer plugin for Cool

I would like to convert Borland dBASE for DOS version 5.0 to AutoHotkey_L or viceversa
Why?
There is a compiler for Clipper/dBase code for modern OS's, called Harbour project, at http://harbour-project.org, and a commercial fork called xHarbour builder at http://xharbour.com, based on the oss xHarbour compiler at http://xharbour.org

I would like to convert AutoIt to AutoHotkey_L or viceversa
Why?
AFAIK, AutoIt was created from the AHK codebase, because some people found the AHK 'language' was too unreadable in their opinion...

... remove error message “the compressed (zip) folder is invalid and corrupted"? ...
Never, ever, use Windows Explorer to unpack zip-files (the Compressed Folders feature of Windows Explorer). That cr@p-tool is unable to pack or unpack a zip-file correctly.
Always use any of the (free) archive tools designed for that purpose.

I'm personally a fan of 7-zip, and (have used and) know that peazip is working just as well, but any other compression tool should do fine.

I'll upload the next release somewhere else.
You could attach it to the original release-post, so it's stored somewhere in the forum-space, and always available as long as the forum is thumbs up

I double posted HTML assignment 1 by accident,
Just edit your post, deleting the duplicated content, and placing a marker like [duplicate post] is fine.
