AFAIK, App103 has created a tool like that, but I can't get to it atm
78  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Is it wise for amateur to invest time in NET Framework languages? on: November 19, 2014, 01:51:31 PM
(While I was typing, mouser also posted, but...) In addition to what mouser said:

Javaw is as 'hard' as C#w, the mainstream .NET language, and does officially run on both Linux and Mac, next to Windows and a plethora of other OS's like Android (though with it's own programming model) and many embedded systems (think: IoTw).
.NET languages can be (created, compiled and) run on Linux, and derivatives like Mac, using the Mono compilers and runtime, but it is a kinda 'reverse-engineered' solution, as it originally wasn't supported by Microsoft, and still isn't fully feature-complete compared to the current .NET runtime, and some parts will even never be done for Mono.

The major IDE's for Java, Eclipse and NetBeans, are free. And there is a free community edition of IntelliJ IDEA by Jetbrains next to a paid version, where the free edition is also the base for the new Android Studio from Google (that currently has Eclipse as it's foundation).

Next to that, solutions for any programming dilemma in Java can easily be found using Google, while for .NET that can be a lot harder to find, or end up in a commercial solution.

(All of the above from personal experience)

It's because you have to hover your entire arm above the screen, and point at something quite small, like a pixel on the screen and at ~400 dpi they can be quite small, versus resting your arm on a desk and finely control sliding a piece of plastic (the mouse) representing a sharply shaped pointer toward that same, still small, pixel.

Buy a good quality new CR2032, and replace it (again if you have to).

Assuming that the downloader-software doesn't 'improve' the directory entry when storing the download, using \downloads (without the drive-letter) should work, as you start the software from that same drive.

83  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: java -version -> 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external on: November 09, 2014, 08:27:33 AM
To get java available in a common CLI the environment variable Path has to be set. The value is set by the Oracle Java installer, but not (as in: can not) propagated to any open CLI. Re-opening the CLI is the least that has to be done.
When running the CLI from something different than the Windows Explorer, that application usually has to be restarted to get the new environment available for child-processes. The easiest way to achieve that is to restart Windows.
84  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: java -version -> 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external on: November 09, 2014, 05:41:24 AM
Did you restart your PC after the re-install, or at least re-open that CLI? If not then retry that first.
85  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: looking for good/working way to text from computer on: November 08, 2014, 06:56:38 AM
^That would be perfectly doable using Tasker or AutomateIt, see the threads that kilele has started recently on similar subjects for links
86  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 07, 2014, 01:26:37 PM
I hope I've found a solution for the original request: AutomateIt-Automation.
It has a location trigger that is imho, close to spot-on for what's been asked. It offers to take you to the Location tips and tricks on the developers website when you select it, where you can select a spot on a map and a radius around it where the trigger should fire.

Nope, usually request like these are directed toward one of the free solutions available.
88  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: customizable gui for cmd apps on: November 06, 2014, 04:22:23 AM
Or my (IMHO) similar tool WinButtons tellme

Both aren't actually feasible for n00b users to start out with, but a more seasoned user can set up a set of applications for that n00b less experienced user using either tool.
89  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 06, 2014, 01:48:28 AM
It's not possible to do what you want, the mobile phone system doesn't work that way.
That is where the experimental Google Geofencing stuff comes in; it tries to make location determination more accurate by (probably, that's part of the experimental stuff) including the WiFi hotspot information that G' gathered 'by accident' using the Streetview recordings, and connection accesspoint detection when using G' applications.
You are correct in that you have to go to the actual location to activate any 'detection'. There is no global database available where Cell ID, location and range is stored, and the data is also quite dynamic, as base stations seem to be relocated or replaced from time to time, most likely based on technical triggers (I can only assume). Most likely there is data about these Cell Phone basestations, but not publicly available and per provider only.

@Kalos: Did you already try the suggestions JoTo gave about Tasker and AutoLocation? Yes, it's not free but quite affordable (as most payed Android apps), and if it works you'll end up buying them anyway Wink
90  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Can't Capture FTL Screenshot When Full Screen is On on: November 05, 2014, 03:33:29 AM
Would trying a DirectX capture (my hotkey is set to Ctrl-Alt-Shift-X, and that's probably the SSC default) be able to help in this case? Games tend to use DirectX graphics quite often.
91  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Dimmer? on: November 04, 2014, 04:21:37 PM
Maybe f.lux is a nice option in this situation?
It kind of takes the time of day/brightness of the sun outside into account:
f.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
92  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: IDEA: tablet toolbar creator (willing to pay) on: November 04, 2014, 01:43:08 AM
Have you considered my tool WinButtons? (and probably ask for some specific enhancements?)
It doesn't have the press-hold, press-drag, press-release stuff (yet) but that can probably be added.

And, IMHO, DesktopCoral and LaunchBar Commander would be nice 'toolbars'
93  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 03, 2014, 04:26:14 PM
You asked nearly the same question a couple of days ago... huh (and got basically the same answers)
94  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: This into that on: November 03, 2014, 10:12:11 AM
Something like this: http://www.onlineconversi..._volume_cylinder_tank.htm ?
95  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: This into that on: November 03, 2014, 08:52:51 AM
What's the unit to convert to? (n00b question maybe, or I just don't understand: Volume to Volume stays the same, AFAICS) cubic to cylindrical is just a different shape to me.
96  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: feature request for auto-screenshot on: November 03, 2014, 07:25:50 AM
- there is a minor problem: rate is always not precise (i set 5 ms, the result is 5 or 6; i set 8, the result is 8 or 9...)
Sounds like a totally different problem: Taking a screenshot every 5 milliseconds is probably faster than Windows can store the image on disk, so the next one might be a bit delayed... ohmy
And needing that feature, a more efficient solution might be to make a screen-movie, instead of a bunch of separate image files, that are not stored very efficient, compared to a (usually stored compressed) movie.
You might better use ESR (Easy Screencast Recorder) for that.
97  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Arrow suggestion on: October 31, 2014, 05:03:56 AM
You can choose on what side a shape is added by setting the appropriate Endpoint Shape for Start and/or End when the Arrows feature is activated
98  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: android app to set my vibration mode on specific hours on: October 29, 2014, 07:22:30 AM
In the log, it says many times: 'Not added to any areas.'
Not sure what that means.
You should long-press that message and choose "Add to area", and add it to your current area (Home? )

There is a Learning mode for Areas (long-press an Area, "Start Learning Area"), that you can set for a specific time, and during that time all GSM antennas detected will be added to that area (while you are walking around the house, or at work etc.).
99  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Android shortcuts on: October 28, 2014, 04:59:16 PM
An android app should specifically support that feature, so you should probably ask the vendor (or search the help/docs) if they support that. I'd expect the app to have a feature of 'Create start-screen shortcut' or something similar.
