DC Website Help and Extras / Usability (i.e. mercy) suggestion?
« on: May 21, 2012, 03:08 AM »
Gosh! I admire Skrommel's impressive app output, but frankly I find his/her 1 Hour Software page overwhelming.

Rather than presenting a flock of icons and unexplained app names, then requiring people to scroll down the l-o-n-g!! webpage to see what on earth anything actually is, how about adding tooltips to the icons/links that show the descriptions when you point to 'em?

Maybe there are similar icon-'n'-undescribed-app-name pages on this site, too, that could benefit from this merciful extra bit of coding. Suggestively, A.

Mobysaurus / The other Mobysaurus?
« on: March 11, 2010, 12:32 PM »
Maybe someone's already asked about this, but:

What's the difference between this Mobysaurus (2007, v1.0.55) and the other Mobysaurus (2006, v2.3)?

They look different. The other Mobysaurus's setup file is 5 times bigger than this one. Is one a fork of the other? Is this explained anywhere here on the site? If not, shouldn't it be?

Thanks, Ander

Mobysaurus / Congratulations?
« on: September 17, 2008, 12:08 PM »
When I used Mobysaurus's "Check For Updates Now" feature today, I couldn't help noticing that it said:

No Updates Found
Congratulations! You are already running the Latest Version of this program.

My dictionary says that "congratulate" means "to express sympathetic pleasure to on account of success or good fortune."

So, what exactly is the "good fortune" the message refers to? That you don't have to download a newer version of Mobysaurus? What's the big deal about that? Isn't it a more or less brainless process?

Besides—and I can't speak for everyone—but I actually enjoy updating programs. I live in the suburbs, where nothing ever happens. It's quite exciting to get to do something like updating a program. When I don't get to update a program, I'm disappointed. So seeing this "congratulatory" message is nothing more than an ironic reminder of my lackluster existence.

Anyway, I thought I should explain that, in case it made sense to anyone else. And now, more coffee.
