N.A.N.Y. Challenge 2007 / Re: WorkCoach - v0.8.0 - January 24, 2007

It was just reported that the 0.8.0 version doesn't work... Anyone know anything about it?
I'm not sure if I understand you... What doesn't work and who reported it?

Hi Armando,

The short answer: no.

The long answer:

The PlainTextWiki tool is a simple command line program that searches for a wiki link in your text file and opens it in your editor.

As such, you need a text editor that supports external tools and can pass the required parameters to PlainTextWiki. (See the readme file for more info.)

MS Word or most other word processors won't be able to use this tool, because:

  • They don't use regular text files.
  • They don't support external tools.

hMailServer seems like a very good option for a Windows mail server.

Good luck!

arjen a suggestion (actually this suggestion might be useful for everyone):
grab a screencasting tool (camtasia old v3 -- free, wink -- free, bb flashback express -- cheap), and make a screencast showing how to use it.  I suggest it for plaintextwiki mainly just because its a cool idea that people might need to see in action to understand.

Video added! Simple and without audio, but hopefully makes things clearer!

I think the fundraiser month should be a month full of activity on DC, with contests etc., that will (hopefully) inspire people to donate. Not just a month where we ask "please donate". I think publicly setting a goal amount is not necessary or even harmful. App's idea of a survey sounds nice.

If the month will include coding contests, these should be announced well in time. Personally I would like to see an announcement about two months before the deadline so I can plan enough time to work on it.

Don't know if December is a good month. In a way it's great because you can also do a "year in review". On the other hand, people may be busy or short on cash, as was said. For me personally it's a busy month so for a contest, I'd prefer another month. On the other hand, NANY worked out fine last year because there was more time before the deadline.

Maybe it's a good idea to set a DC "calendar" each year (maybe only visible to people who are interested) with deadlines, contests etc. to make things easier to plan.
