I personally have this little tool on auto-start and let it stay in my system tray around-the-clock. It really does my a big favor keeping me up-to-date on forum activities when I'm busy coding or working on my Moby thesaurus and cannot check out forum stuff regularly.

Do you think this tool improves your daily DC forum experience?

 :feedback:

Fantastic!
But it sure seems to be checking frequently - like every 5 to 10 seconds!  I think this should be an option and default to something less frequent maybe?

Mousie -> update!  ;)

Current ver 1.1.10 (also 1.1.05) checks https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss2;limit=1 every 30 seconds, and thus bandwidth usage averages 2 - 4 KB per minute. Come on!   :trout:

Hilarious! Nice find!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Sorry Calvin, and thanks for your understanding.   ;)   :up:

Sometimes best intentions do not end up with results that satisfy everybody.

When you organize an event/contest, things may go awry, getting out of hand despite all your initial best wishes for the outcome, and you reluctantly end up with a subpar plan b or even plan c - this happens to the best of us:)

Calvin: having read and re-read your posts, I respect your opinion, but I don't think it's at all necessary to make a big federal case out of it. :)

I'm just glad you aren't stuck with Borland junk anymore now, mouser :)

Mobysaurus / Some tips on using Mobysaurus Thesaurus
« on: December 04, 2006, 06:31 AM »
Shortcut Keys

F1 - Find Synonyms
F2 - Find Synonymous Headwords
F3 - Suggest Headwords
F4 - Find Online
F5 - History and Favorites

ESC - Clear search box

Shift + Enter - Launch and look up word in WordWeb



Minimize/Close To Tray

To place the icon in the tray area, go to "Option", check:

1. Minimize to Tray    and/or
2. Close to Tray

(One or both, depends on your preference)



Work With Text Editors like WordPad or Microsoft Word

If you intend to frequently invoke this thesaurus to look up words in a text editor, try to enable the above-mentioned "minimized to tray", "close to tray" options. This should be more convenient for you and also it saves time.

To look up a word in Microsoft Word, etc., simply select the word by double-clicking on it, and press Mobysaurus Hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + A, by default).

The hotkey won't be effective if you don't have the program running.

I use SpamGourmet and Dodgeit.  Both are super. http://www.dodgeit.com/
Welcome to our forum, bearbottoms! One of our members posted about your impressive freeware site yesterday. What a nice collection! :-*

Folks, check out bearbottoms' freeware site:Thmbsup:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems

UDF

Maximum filename length: 255 bytes
Maximum pathname length:  1023 bytes *

* This restriction might be lifted in newer versions.

Well, if you decide to burn DVD in UDF format instead of ISO.  :)

337
Go to "ISO" tab when you create a new compilation -

File System:  ISO 9660: 1999

Max. length of file name is 207 characters in this mode.

Also in the "relax restrictions" section, check "allow more than 255 characters in path".

These two combined will allow a max. of 255 + 207 characters for path+filename.

338
the question is, after you add the hotkey, does it pop up when you hit the keyboard multimedia keys?

mouser, i tried both exes on my MS ergonomic 4000 keyboard with MS Intellipro 5.5 installed, and they did not pop up anything when I hit multimedia keys.

Developer's Corner / Writing Good Software Documentation
« on: November 24, 2006, 12:13 AM »
Good documentation may exclude in many cases the need for further forms of technical support. It is, however, not easy to write. One of the reasons why this happens is that it is difficult for shareware authors or other software developers to put themselves into the users ’ shoes, since they are already thoroughly familiar with the application.

Screenshot - 24_11_2006 , 5_10_05 PM.jpg

340
The next feature to add to moby will be "auto-detection of inflections and spelling variants"  :)

341
That's a good question! Here's probably a good place to start:
http://en.wikipedia....&fulltext=Search

Thanks for looking into it.  :Thmbsup:

Cavalcader, check out the new alpha (1.0.44) - Safe Search!  ;)

You can edit the word list and it won't get replaced with each update unless you choose to restore default.

342
I'm in!

Spoiler
I'll release a brand-new utility to neutralize mouser's one for N.A.N.Y.  ;D   Just kidding!

Let's say hello to Daniel, the developer of Orbit! ;D

https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=124.msg43592#msg43592

It now appears to me that this malware alarm is just some misunderstandings backed up by sirens from some "super-heuristic" :down: anti-spyware programs.

Looking forward to seeing your next release, Daniel!  :)

Welcome Daniel!   :)

search "mouse catcher" and you'll see...  :D

Mobysaurus / Re: Mobysaurus gets a mention at Lockergnome
« on: November 16, 2006, 05:03 AM »
Thanks lanux128, cheers!

6GB/day site downloads really turned me on... and we had LOTs of new members joined the forum yesterday.  :beerchug:

Let's see how things will go in the following coupla days - it's always nice to get mentioned somewhere, for both DC and Moby.

Mobysaurus / Re: error codes SIC01 and NOD01
« on: November 15, 2006, 11:23 PM »
It turned out that a bug in multi-threading handling in Moby that might cause such troubles. It's my fault and I'm sorry for your inconvenience. :-[

A new version 1.0.41 has been tested and uploaded for download, which should address this bug.

I'll try my best to avoid this from happening again.  :)

Thank you tnavaharry,

It seems that some of our users are experiencing this very annoying problem and I'm working as fast as I can to figure it out.

It this v weird coz I don't see anything on when I test it on my computers.  :(  Anyway, it's surely a bug and i'll crush it.

I can't remember the last time I saw a pic this natural and serene. Definitely a great replacement for your current wallpaper if you are not hijacked by those Cody ones.  :P

It looks so beautiful on my 1280*1024 LCD!  :Thmbsup:    Grab it now!
