Quite a few times I have tried some software that I'm sure would be useful, grabbed it quick, but then I find that I get no use out of at all.

This is not necessarily a reflection on the quality of the product (although that is often a factor) but somehow it just doesn't "click" for me. Or maybe I'm just dumb and don't use it right - I'm sure the author of at least one such product would be delighted to agree with that statement  :Thmbsup:

Does anyone else suffer from that problem? Not sure whether to share the list or not, as I don't want to dissuade you all about products that just don't come together from my point of view.

Sung to the tune of "Bike" by Pink Floyd

I've got a site
That I think you would like
It's got RSS
And YouTube links,
And things to make it look good
I'd show it to you if I could
But someone hacked it

You're the kind of forum that fixes my boredom,
I can post about anything
Everything if you want thing

I wrote an app
It's a little bit crap
I might as well be blunt
It's kind of drab
I'd put it off for months.
But if you ignore all the bugs,
Then I win a mug

Repeat chorus

I know a mouser
He lives in my browser
I don't know why
I call him Jesse
He's getting rather odd
But he's a good mouser

Repeat chorus

DC has a suite of wonderful wares
Made with flair,
Lots of free software
Take a couple by all means, mate:
But please donate

Repeat chorus

DC has a room full of software reviews
Some neutral
Some brtual
Most of them are useful
Let's go into the forum now and have a look!

Sung to the tune of "Yesterday" by that popular beat combo, the Beatles:

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
But now my files are all in disarray
Oh, I wish I backed-up yesterday

Suddenly, I could really use an un-delete,
My folders all seem incomplete,
Oh, catastrophe came suddenly

Why they had to go I don't know, they're all astray
I clicked something wrong, now my bits are like puree...hey hey hey...

Yesterday, I downloaded a free game to play
Now my computer has Trojan/A
I've paid the price for my naivete

Why I stole the game, it's the same, same old cliche,
I wanted new software, but was too mean, to want to pay

Now today, I got a call from the CIA
they say they want to put me away,
'scuse me folks, I'm incommunique
Hmm mm mmm mmm mmmmmm

Developer's Corner / Opinions sought: should I open source Auspex?
« on: April 04, 2012, 03:36 PM »
As some of you may know, I wrote a text expander / replacer for NANY 2011. It was a bugger to write, and it seemed to polarise opinions from certain parties  :D but it achieved its goal. Certainly I use it literally the whole time so in that respect I guess it was worth the effort, and based on feedback from a fair number people, seems to be a reasonable example of this type of app.

But! Development has stalled - I do have a list of features I'd still like to implement, however at the moment I certainly don't have the time. I think it deserves some more attention, and has plenty of potential if it were actively developed further.

The project is written in Delphi and I would open all sources except the keyboard hook which will remain available only as a dll.

What do you reckon, folks? Anyone up for wading in there?

And if so, what sort of license model would work for this? I don't want some clod lifting the source code, re-badging and selling it on.
