Sorry to learn about your loss. Thanks for sharing. Out of curiosity, did you find some odd theory to solve big problems which might work?  :)

There was also a suggestion in that discussion thread that people departing because of this action were "putting the final nails in" to Dropbox's coffin. I am not up-to-date, so have no idea what that was about. Have you any idea?
I shall meanwhile try and find out what rumours there are about Dropbox.
I think that was just a funny comment from a grumpy xp user :)
They must have stopped xp support to reduce development costs and avoid security issues.

I don't know if one way to stick to winxp and keep using dropbox (discontinued) could be through virtualbox running dropbox for linux.

I share a spreadseet with direct links made with dropbox. Maybe I should try some linux distro which works well with dropbox. Any suggestion? Small, easy to install for a dual boot on windows, dropbox compatible..

Well I hope someone can share their experience  :)
The html rendering is not the most important feature to me but that the desktop program can generate direct links to your files with urls having the same path as on your harddrive. My guess is that most of them generate encrypted links and redirect to pages.

Personally, I can recommend from that alternativeto's list yandex because it works fine on the ipad, but it doesn't meet the direct links feature.

Dropbox has dropped XP support and it will be discontinuing the ability to render HTML content in-browser via shared links or Public Folder.

Do you know some alternative which supports xp and works the same as dropbox, that is, drop files on your public folder, direct links following the same path as your folder (no encryption nor redirecting to webpages), html5 files Rendering on browsers..

58 is a digital library cms funded by the UNESCO which has a "databaseplugin" to import existing databases: http://wiki.greensto...using_databaseplugin
You can also export their collections to be browsed on cd/dvd

59  - While it isn't cheap (159 USD is their lowest cost license), it appears to be able to do what you ask. Looks like they do have a trial version.

They have similar software for Oracle, Firebird, Postgres, MS-SQL, DB2, SQL lite, SQL anywhere and universal (ODBC) databases.
I'll take a look at the lite version.

This one is similar:
It costs the same but cannot be updated for free beyond the first year. The sqlmaestro's one extends the period to three years.

Actually I'd like something opensource, mantained by public institutions ;)

60 by the CERN looks like a nice software with a powerful search system.

Another one very cool and simple to use,
It takes a google spreadsheet and builds the user interface on the fly. No mysql here either.

I haven't tried Omeka yet though it has only a csv importer and I'd prefer a sql importer. is another one with a robust user interface for searching. I think It can only import xml looks like what I'm interested in but seems to have payware features

Lol. You could always develop plugins to extend features.

I've just learnt about :
That's the kind of software I had in mind, aiming at digital libraries (thread name edited).
Anything else you may recommend?

Hi. Is there some software to create a site from an existing database? It would inspect your database and automatically create pages, user interfaces, administration forms, multiadministration rights, file uploaders, etc.

IMO these rich Oracle guys should provide backwards compatibility for respect to the memory and culture of internet. It's not acceptable that Oracle dooms us to this oblivion.

It's a pity because many games and educational demos were made with java applets. What will happen to the sites still active which contain applets? Like this one:
Is there a way to run applets in a safe way? Dunno, some web browser with an emulator plugin? Maybe a retrobrowser within a virtual machine? Any recommendations?

Nice tool! I like a few seconds pause between tracks so I can listen to nature when cycling around

Camera sunglasses make me think of virtual reality. Who knows if it could be possible to provoke sleep state simulations with virtual reality goggles.

As for doing it on a mobile device, simply recording a chime and phrase and setting as the alarm tone on your clock should do the trick.
Ok but it would be nice a database to tag images and videos.
Sometimes I've experienced that listening music before going to sleep affects somewhat the mood on waking up.
Thinking of certain memories after being awaken by snooze alarms seems to affect my humour too. One interesting experiment could be trying to autosuggest dreams by recording yourself with camera sunglasses. Scary!

I was googling something like: sounds australia birds preview
And found this blog with sounds to give paintings a sort of soundtrack:
The blogroll links on the right seems also to be worth exploring for more sounds.
I guess the strategy here would be to associate sounds to images so that when your semi-awake listens into sounds your dream be brought someway to the corresponding scenery / painting / video. Makes sense?

Any chance to see this as a tablet app? I use my ipad as alarm so I think this could work along with the snooze function. I reckon the moments after the first alarm when you are half asleep might be when dreams can be better controlled :)

Nice tips, Tom. I'll pass them along to the authors of the zine.

Well I meant a program to improve presentation and readibility of any document in general. Maybe the software could detect possible issues and ask the user about actions to be performed.

I took a look and all I can say is: Ouch!
Yes it's quite awful ;)
Maybe I can suggest these guys a few easy to use programs.
So far what I've found is the free version of Serif Pageplus which seems easy and may suffice for their needs.
Also the web service Madmagz:
looks good and offers a printing service which they may find useful. The web version seems to be free at the moment.

Cheers! I'll check out your recommendations. Basically I was reading this magazine in pdf format:
And found it difficult to read due to the choice of colors in some of the backgrounds and text fonts. I thought there would be some software out there that took this and made it more readable by changing a bit colors, font sizes, relocate articles positions,etc

Is there any software to make magazines automatically out of text files? I was thinking of those rss readers that beautify the format to make it more readable. Does exist something like that to make magazines easily? Say you have a txt,doc file with a bunch of text and images more or less formatted. It would be nice an application to take that mess and make a readable thing.
