Circle Dock / Re: [Suggestion] Task Manager
« on: September 12, 2008, 03:25 PM »
well no :)

I'm still just a student and my studies is mostly focused on the internet (or well, all "new" media)...

For my graduation I created a platform for applications on J2ME (Java 2 Mobile Edition), this is a showcase example (launched as beta for european championship). Apps that run on java phones.
You kinda need to program in threads to not block all incoming calls etc.

Dunno how experienced you are with programming and especially threading but this J2ME based article helped me start off with threading issues.

It covers alot of important threading issues and way of thinking. Might wanna read it if you have the time. If you want me to, I could post some threading code written on J2ME but most of it deals with network and text-ticker related things

Thanks for the program btw. works fine!

Circle Dock / Re: System Requirements for Running Circle Dock
« on: September 12, 2008, 03:01 PM »
Thx for the quick reply.

Well my system specs aren't that bad :) Here goes;

Windows XP SP3 x86 latest updates + .Net 3.5, silverlight and all the other bla
ATi Catalyst drivers 8.8
MediaPortal 1.0 RC2 + latest svn weekly build
This is a quite fresh install (no more then a week old)

CPU: E6750 @ 3,2GHz
RAM: 4GB OCZ @ 950MHz 5-5-5-18 T2
GFX: ATi HD3870 512MB
MoBo: Gigabyte P35-DS4 rev 1.0
PSU: Enermax 620w
Sound: Creative X-Fi xTreme Music
TV-card: Hauppauge PVR-150

Probably more than you need but at least I could be specific


Just discovered that this specific issue is also skin speciifc with MediaPortal, so there's probably not much you can do here. The Aeon Wide Mediaportal skin, which I'm using, is kind of a hack anyways...

As for using a combination of mouse clicks to toggle Circle Dock, I don't think it would be feasible to implement because you would then have a delay in all the mouse clicks you make as the program waits for a second click or no click. I've tried this thing before and I've found it to be annoying.
What about creating a backgroundworker (I believe that's a thread helper class in dotNET) for listening for the events of mouse clicks?
That would get the annoying bit out of the way, at least that's what I think from my experience with threads and J2ME. It might be a challenge, but hey, who doesn't like one ;)

I'd like this feature... I use firefox to close tabs with middle mouse all the time so I turned that default setting off immediatly :)

Circle Dock / System Requirements for Running Circle Dock
« on: September 12, 2008, 02:30 PM »
Hi all,

this is my first post here, just discovered circle dock and really like it!

But the reason I subscribed to this forum is that I think I have some issues, maybe machine specific.
CircleDock works fine on it's own no probs!
However when I launch MediaPortal and CircleDock's running in the background MediaPortal doesn't like it at all! It's stuttering all over the place.
Dunno if this is an issue that's probable because of two apps running on dotNET?
If you need me to provide any more info. feel free to contact me in anyway (here, or by e-mail)

Btw. just read through some of these posts and saw a newer alpha release then I'm currently running (the one from the homepage; 7.6) I'll try that and report back when I can.

Should have started my own thread, maybe someone could move it to some better location...
