General Software Discussion / Good writing program for the iPad?
« on: January 08, 2013, 01:52 PM »
I looked at Textilus, Write 2 and several others. There doesn't seem to be a killer app in this category for the iPad. Does anyone have anything they *really* love? And don't say Pages. :p

I currently use Awesome Notes to write my stories, songs and poems, but it has a very limited feature set for actual heavy writing.

General Software Discussion / Small free form db/notes software
« on: November 21, 2012, 07:55 PM »
I am playing an MMO called Guild Wars 2 and I have a lot of friends there. The game only allows me a single text line to describe a person an all of their chars and the company deletes this entry every time there is an update, so I need to find an external solution.  Here are my requirements:

I need the following text fields:

Account Name
Character Name (5 or more characters per account)
Character Description - Needs to be able to handle at least 3 -4 paragraphs of text.

I need to be able to sort on the first two fields, and I need to be able to search. I don't need any more features at this point. I want something small (under 20 MB) and if possible something with an iPad or web option as well.

Any suggestions?

It's been 3 months since the last newsletter. What gives?

Screenshot Captor / Text clipped when large fonts are used
« on: May 02, 2012, 01:59 PM »
I set my windows display settings to use large fonts. Now, text is being clipped in the preferences dialog (and possibly elsewhere). Also, miscellaneous is misspelled.

Coding Snacks / Overlay Folder Icon with Exe icon
« on: January 21, 2009, 04:52 PM »
There are a slew of programs out there that will let you customize your explorer folder icons. But I can't find any program that will easily let me create the icon that I want.  What I want is program that will let me select a folder icon and then select an icon from an exe and overlay the exe icon on the folder icon.

There are plenty of commercial programs that have this feature, but it's not something I need often enough to warrant paying for.  If anyone knows of a free for commercial use tool that will work, please let me know!

Screenshot Captor / Blurry Image
« on: July 01, 2008, 07:14 PM »
I created a screenshot and then I added some arrows and text to it.  For some reason, when I saved the image, the arrows and text were blurry.  :(
I tried doing the same thing in Snagit and the output wasn't blurry.

Also, I couldn't figure out how to resize the canvas (so I could add the text outside of the screenshot), so I pasted the screenshot into Paint and then opened that in Screenshot Captor.

LaunchBar Commander / Announcement mailing list?
« on: October 19, 2006, 12:59 AM »
It would be nice if there was an announcement mailing list, so I could be notified of new versions.  I currently (for the past 8+ years) use PowerPro, but it has such a hideous scripting language, that I would welcome a contender.
