thanks ozzy! that's a great idea -
i will look into how to make it multilingual, i know some of the tools for doing it but i've never done it.
this seems like a good project to start with.

General Review Discussion / Re: About this section
« on: March 29, 2005, 10:33 AM »
can anyone comment on the issue of keeping the review a surprise? is that a totally silly thing?
i think it's probably one of those vain/paranoid impulses where i think hmm i don't really want to reveal this secret best program that i have discovered until the final review when it will be made public..

am i the only one who kind of feels conflicted about revealing these "best" programs, like you've fought long and hard to find the best app for the job, and you kind of want to share it, but you also kind of want it to be a big deal when you share it :) lol sounds stupid when i put it down in writing..

bottom line question is this:
is there any reason that this ASRT section where award candidates will be discussed weeks ahead of time, should be restricted to only certain people?  or should it be open for commenting and viewing by everyone?  is there anything lost by having the winner of the award known to everyone on the forum before the review? does it ruin the surprise?

well, at the very least it will give the official reviewer (at this point its me but we could start rotating) some feedback about the choice of winner BEFORE the review is published, which can only be a good thing.  That way if program "x" is going to be awarded best of some category, the members here will have a week or so to say why they think that is not the right choice.  even if it doesn't change which program is chosen as the winner, it will help sharpen the review and also build a discussion that people can read on the forum after the review is posted.

i've been adding sections as i think of them - if anyone has any suggestions of categories or links, please let me know.

Here's a preview of the new ProcessTamer Configuration GUI in action.
It's a separate program from the main resident tray tool so it takes up no resources during normal operation.

It's main purpose is obviously to help you configure ProcessTamer and create rules, but it will also let you view and change priorities on the fly quicker than through task manager, etc..

You can see that the new gui has 2 tabs, one is configuration of options and explicit override rules,
and the other acts as a kind of quick-access task manager where you can manually change priorities or kill processes.

note that this gui for configuring is a completely separate exe that is invoked when needed, so that the main program running in the tray remains super small and efficient.
