General Software Discussion / Re: uTorrent alternatives?
« on: April 02, 2012, 11:42 PM »
I have found qBittorrent, which looks like what I want, but I was wondering if you guys have anything else that you may be using.

From my experience, qBittorrent doesn't handle Unicode file names very well.

The best way to download torrents is with Tixati.  :Thmbsup: Not only is it a great and fast torrent client, but it's also a fun place to hang out, chat, search and share with others. :)

I'm using Tixati right now. The UI lacks a bit of responsiveness but in general this software gets the job done.

I use Alcohol 52% Free Edition . It lets you create disc images beside mounting them. It can also emulate copy-protected discs like Daemon Tools.

I think Oops Backup is very good and it seems quite fit for superboyac's plan. I've been using it for quite a while and it has saved me a few times. I set it to backup every 1 hour if there are any changes, and keep older versions for up to 3 months. My whole data is about 50GB and the total backup size is now about 150GB.

I'm showing some usage statistics below if that can help

Thanks, phitsc - the talks seem quite useful. I'm watching CPU Caches and Why You Care by Scott Meyers, who seems indeed funny =)

Btw, slides can be found by googling for the talks' titles. For example, the slides for the talk mentioned in your post is here.

I use the free version of AnVir Task Manager. It can pin windows on top and a lot of other tasks too (see the attached image below). The nice thing is that it doesn't add any "icons" or "buttons" to your title bar.

I'd like to suggest God of War and Okami, if you own a PS3/PS2  :)

AnVir Task Manager Free ( has the features you're looking for (except the 'roll up', but it can create 'floating icons' instead). It has some more features (startup manager, hard disk and cpu load monitor, etc), so the memory footprint may not be minimal though.

Developer's Corner / Re: The Cinder graphics library for C++
« on: November 30, 2010, 12:02 PM »
I've tried using libcinder before for my graphics project and found some bugs in the .obj loader module. To make it worse, the documentation was terrible, to the point that I gave up (I'm not an experienced coder so I couldn't figure out ways to do things just from looking at the source code). By the way, there is another discussion on libcinder here on, a demoscene community.

ok, I seemd to find what the problem is.
it' more slower than before in XP, really bore me a lot. I tried to modify the items in the "options", and this:

change the "result label path" from "one level path" to none, can reduce the delay obviously, you can try.

Works for me too. Wonder why it is so  :-\

Problem solved  :D
Apparently Notepad++ was the culprit. I uninstalled it and everything went back to normal. It seems that in order to draw its icon on the menu, Notepad++ forces Windows to revert back to its old method of drawing the context menu...
Still a bit weird no one here encounters the same problem though  :)

*Edit: On a side note... only Notepad++ 5.5.1 (newest version) causes this weird behavior. Older versions are OK. Maybe I need to reconsider my habit of keeping my software up-to-date  :-\

Hi DC folks,

Even though this is my first post, I've been lurking here for quite a while. I'm having a problem with my explorer's context menu: whenever I right-click on a file, the top-level context menu appears differently from the other levels (as you can see in the attached image - it looks like the XP's menu). The problem doesn't happen when I right-click on a folder though. Does anybody know of a probable cause?
