Hi there,

We're developing a site and near (or somewhat near) its final stages of completion.

site description:
the site is bidding-project where you can post a project with description and wait for sellers to bid on them.
you can converse with the sellers and money is escrow until work is done.
there is fair arbitration and prompt payment for sellers.

If interested for QA, please message me privately and at the end of it, get paid (via PayPal) for feedback.

Thank you.


got an interesting question...

sometimes noise gets really noisy here and I can't tell if the speaker is too loud / or someone is speaking waay too loud, or needs to reduce down speaker volume...

is there an app or utility which :

a) from microphone, reduce down input from 100db to 70db (or below) ... ?
b) from speaker, if someone speaks too loud, auto-adjust speaker volume to max 80db. (Cut off anything above 80db.) ?

for PC / Intel 80x86/Windows XP.

General Software Discussion / what to do with web-spit?
« on: June 25, 2008, 09:22 AM »
I'm writing in regard to my company:

we write a free software for nearly 10 years, giving free updates, free releases and many updates.
the product is helpmaker. - the product is found in the URL:

we also host the turbopower newsgroups at no charge.

every now and then, we get slurs, personal attacks, insults, false claims against us.
today, this has raised it's ugly head again.

what should we do about this?

i'm currently writing a freeware HTML editor.

Current download:


* screen subject to change due to more developments.
* url will be updated and may change without notice.

can you kindly try it out and suggest ideas to make it work better.

General Software Discussion / Software Ethics
« on: December 20, 2007, 05:14 PM »
I'm raising a new thread about software ethics.

I'm raising a broad-based discussion question.

The vendors of several popular organizers uses the same wordprocessor library, same scheduler library -
and used in different fashion in their organizers.

One thing i noticed was the sheer amount of bugs those libraries had and yet, the wordprocessor library vendor, and the scheduler library vendor managed to get away totally blameless - their customer's customers (i.e., the software vendors) get the blame instead.

many of the issues reported (by the end-users of these organizers) were attributed to bugs and defects in the (library), and no fault of the (organizer-vendor).

for the record, many years ago, I confronted the word-processor library vendor and walked away, losing a few thousand dollars., and same with the scheduler vendor.

why did I walk away and lose all the money?

the EULA on the Word-Processing Library states that the Word-processor library is without warranty and that it was without fitness for any purpose. any claim in court would be thrown out, and those vendors would tell me repeatedly that I would not get back my money at all. my emails are often ignored.

nearly all EULA found on software now have the above clauses.

today, I look at the software market and shudder. unless things change, either by law-enforcement (in the form of IT malpractice lawsuits) or increasing professional status of the IT industry, three things will happen:

a) people who write software will be tempted to sell "hypeware", "false promises" and "software full of bugs" to recover costs as quickly as possible,

b) it will become more and more difficult to earn a living selling software.

c) there will be another IT "black hole" where investments don't match the revenue coming in.

- An average software developer makes approx US$120,000 per year. How many copies of US$29.95 organizers do you have to sell to support a development team?

- Why is that nobody has taken "class action" lawsuit against certain vendors?

- Why do people resign themselves to posting on this forum to complain... why not file an "IT malpractice" lawsuit instead?

Maybe the first thing to do, is regulate IT the same as being lawyers and doctors. Doctors are regulated by medical council or medical supervisory board. Lawyers have bar associations or law societies.

The very sad thing about software market is as every year pass by, I see more and more software created with false and misleading advertising. RAD means Rapid Application Decline, and QA is no longer followed.

Perhaps the only way to force higher standards is to start writing laws, to force IT vendors to honor their claims, and force punitive damages when they don't.

We wrote an accounts package for Windows.

What is it?
This is an accounts package with general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable, inventory, sales, purchasing modules.

What database does it use?
It uses MSSQL currently. The product uses a database abstraction layer; it also can be ported to MySQL or Firebird easily.

How do I get it?
Please contact "supportviz at vizacc dot com" for a free evaluation.

What do I get if I give feedback?
We will give you a free copy of this software.


I was playing around with the outliner concept.

What is an outliner?
In computer terminology, an outliner is a master-detail self-referencing multi-column tree. A tree is a linked list of nodes.

There are three primary keys used, one to identify the whole tree, one to identify the parent, and one to identify the child.
The terminating condition in the recursion is that (Parent Key = Child Key) stops the self-referencing.

It is master-detail but it seeks it's own data instead of using a second table.

It is multi-column, so you can store data in two or more columns.

What is the back-end database?
The back-end database for this outliner is MSSQL stored in a table.

this is an introduction to HelpMaker v8.

When you login, you get a list of databases to connect to:

Select a database, and you login to that database:

The main screen is divided into the left (folders) and right (document list) panel.
The document list panel has the name of the document, document number, and document version (for storing multiple versions of the same document).

The folder has properties you can edit:

There are many kinds of documents you can insert into HelpMaker:

It includes it's own HTML Editor with Syntax Editor
