I'd just like to quickly recommend HydraIRC, a free and open source IRC client that I feel is largely comparable to mIRC (and the free part is nice :D). I hope I'll get time to check out the IRC channel more thoroughly in the future. I signed up to DC a month or two ago and am just now getting time to explore! :)

And Yes, I do frequent the room ... very nice place :D

I'm currently writing a review of search tools for the DC reviews  :Thmbsup: :-[

Developer's Corner / Re: My (Ended) Search for a Python IDE
« on: February 12, 2006, 02:10 PM »
I find it hard to imagine that I completely fogot about the Eclipse platform/ dev tool ... but I did!

Thanks for the insight, I'll get it and run along side Komodo to compare :)

And thanks for the offer - I may take you up on it ;)

Developer's Corner / My (Ended) Search for a Python IDE
« on: February 12, 2006, 01:43 AM »
I have long-since been a fan of the python scripting language. I find it very intuitive to use and easy to knock up a bit of this-and-that whenever needed.

But I wanted to take it a step further than just "playing" here and there. I wanted to get me a professional IDE for Python and start getting down to business. I felt that a simple text-editor wouldn't do for this task - I needed debugging support and possible code-completion. Also, code-folding would be useful.

I narrowed it down to two programs - WingIDE and Komodo from ActiveState. - Feature list / version comparison for WingIDE

http://www.activesta...Komodo/editions.plex - The same for Komodo.

Based partly on those lists, I chose Komodo. And have been very impressed thus far. It's the first python editor that's ever automagically picked up wxPython too!

Stay tuned for some simple apps in python from me ;) And maybe some in C++/C# with python extensions....  :tellme:

Will purchase when pay day finally arrives  :D

Thanks very much to the True Launch Bar author(s) !  :-*

I'm testing driving it right now - here's the link as the MS website is hammered:

It's....minimalistic  :Thmbsup:

Yes please!  8)

Wow I missed this thread entirely  ;D

I am 17 years of age and a director of a PC Repair company. We shall soon be moving into online retail and web services too. Very busy = me  ;) I've been twiddling with computers since the age of 9, which I suppose is much less time than most here. I am from Luton, Bedfordshire, England, UK. Don't shoot me for living in Luton!  :Thmbsup:

My hobbies include coding for the desktop and also for the web. I enjoy my work because you meet a wide range of people, and I earn more cash than my peers  ;D

To top my week off I love to go clubbing and wake up wishing I had never done it  8) :D

General Software Discussion / Re: SpyDefense

Freeware antivirus. Sounds suspicious. I never use freeware antivirus. Any other freeware is ok, but not freeware antivirus.

But it looks cool anyway.
Has anyone tried virus checking it with Norton antivirus or simmilar?

I believe it is anti-spyware not AV, but I may be wrong :)

I have been on a quest. A quest to find a good (legal) music service with the following criteria:

  • Software needs to respond when I click buttons. It needs to be well designed and not take more than it's fair share of RAM.
  • There needs to be lots of popular music, aswell as lesser-known artists.
  • I can't afford 79p a track ($1.50, I might add) which is what most/all "buying" services charge. So there needs to be some kind of subscription service.
  • The price cannot be more than £14.99 per month.

So I took a look around. I've tried emusic ( and here are my thoughts on that:

Overall, a nice setup. Web-based, but the selection of music was just too scarce for me to consider it properly. I got a few little-known UK artists from it, but they were about all I could recognise in terms of artists. I used the free, two-week trial where you get 50 free downloads. BIG ADVANTAGE: NO DRM!

I have used napster in the past, and here are my thoughts on that service:

Selection of music is great. The software and customer support - isn't. The software is so resource-hungry on my system it became unbearable. It was even bad on my 2GIG RAM, AMD64 system. Ouch.

In terms of customer service, it was dreadful. I have had to ring them twice as they charged my card twice, two months in a row. They never apologised. They never sought to rectify the situation. They simply said "call your bank".

But I have found a new service, from Virgin! (Richard Branson & Co)

The software is smooth, fast and efficient. The amount of tracks available (1.4 mil I think) is astounding. They have a subscription service, and it's in the price range (£9.99). There is radio. There is playlists. There is music insurance, so if your system fails, you don't lose any of your music when you reinstall VD (Ooops, just realised what that says!).

It current is only available to UK and US residents. For more information, check out .

Hmm, you have me interested, superboyac. As a hobby-developer, I think I might just take your idea on.

I am only (half) proficient in C# though, but the latest 2.0 version I feel is much smoother than the previous one. If you'd like me to start on it in C#, just give me the nod  :Thmbsup:

Hi Superboyac,

On a quick poke around, it doesn't seem possible to get completely customised field names, but you can choose from a large list of options - click on 'Tools', then 'Options', then click the 'Other' tab and click on 'Select Fields'.

I still use A-book and find it really good - especially with the added Pocket PC sync.  However, my mission to break free of Outlook has pretty much fallen apart...  I will start a thread on this sometime early in the new year, because my process might be useful/interesting to others...

I too, am trying to break away from Outlook. Even though it's hard not to use something you've paid for :(

On the subject of A-Book, it looks great. Although the price for something I may not use too much feels a bit steap, but I am looking into TheBat! so I'll see the address book capabilities of that :)

Living Room / The Mind Awareness Campaign
« on: October 25, 2005, 05:56 PM »
Good evening to you all.

I wish to bring to your attention a campaign I have just launched. It is for the promotion of the facts about mental illness, and to provide an online forum for sufferers, carers and professionals alike, to discuss things and support each other.

Registration is free to the forums, and I will be drumming up local support in the coming weeks (radio..newspapers etc..).

We do not currently accept donations.

If you are interested in this, please visit my website at . You will be directed to a subdomain of which is currently under construction.

I thank you for your time and mouser for letting me post this  :Thmbsup:



Contact me if you need anything like a website redesign or a logo etc.. It is one of my specialities ;) I'd be very glad to do it for nothing also - just as another little donation :)

Thanks everyone! Suggestions are brilliant. I'll get coding.

0.2 should be out sometime over the weekend  :up: :)

General Software Discussion / Nico - Freeware
« on: September 30, 2005, 02:20 AM »
Nico is a little freeware server connectivity monitor that alerts you when a system appears to be down. It's current drawbacks are it can only monitor one server, and there is currently no email alerts. Both features will be available soon.

Basically I need people to test it. It is currently in alpha stages of development, but should be moving to beta in 2 weeks.

A port scanner will also be included. And it will always be freeware, or open-source. It is written in C++ and takes up less than 1.5Mb of RAM on the test systems.

I hope someone finds it useful, as I have worked hard and will continue to do so.

The web address is , and a forum is forthcoming!
