DC Gamer Club / Re: Playing Grim Fandango on a modern PC

It is related to the nVidia drivers and anti-aliasing, but it seems that the newer drviers simply aren't compatible.

Your only options would be to run it in software mode (rather than hardware acceleration), or to install some old nVidia drivers that use the old antialiasing technique.

Nice work Vrokolos, thanks.

I look forward to future updates, and increased functionality!!

In Xplorer2 you can flatten a folder structure by selecting the folder and pressing Shift+Enter. This shows all files within the folder and subfolders in a single pane, at which point you can move / rename or do anything else with them.

Perhaps DOpus has something similar?

Tom Vasal is a prolific reviewer, posting several new video reviews to YouTube every week. At first I found his kids rather distracting, but over time I've grown to enjoy their participation.

However, when she's not scouring the rules, Holly does eat rather a lot of pieces!

If you like your boardgames you may also wish to check out...

Living Room / Re: World of Goo - Indie Game with Great Reviews?
« on: March 07, 2009, 08:32 AM »
I bought and completed World of Goo, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the experience.

Anyone who doesn't buy a copy for $5 is a fool! (IMHO)


Finished Programs / Re: AudioBookSleep

Need not be a brain sensor - just a button that you hold down while you are awake. If you release the button a 3(?) minute countdown is triggered that stops the book, unless of course you press the button again.

In the first instance it could just be a key on your laptop, but ultimately I think you'll need to go into production of buttons on the end of a USB cable,  then bluetooth buttons, wi-fi enabled buttons etc.


Living Room / Re: Should I switch from Dreamhost?
« on: February 22, 2009, 03:55 PM »
I am in pretty much the smae situation as you Tinjaw - I've been with DreamHost for 2 years, and renewal is due within a month.

I plan to renew.

The price is excellent, the features meet my needs, and although they have their fair share of issues at times, I genuinely believe that they do their best to look after their customers.


How about Originally intended for debugging code, but it will store text of any sort on a temporary basis.

What is pastebin?
pastebin is here to help you collaborate on debugging code snippets. If you're not familiar with the idea, most people use it like this:
submit a code fragment to pastebin, getting a url like
paste the url into an IRC or IM conversation
someone responds by reading and perhaps submitting a modification of your code
you then view the modification, maybe using the built in diff tool to help locate the changes

And you can make the transaction private too... well slightly private! See the faq for details

N.A.N.Y. 2009 / Re: NANY 2009: The Challenge Graphic

Really nice job there Nudone.

I know that you don't want a big debate going here... and I do sympathise with you fear that our precious Cody is being imitated... BUT...

I wanted to point out that the site you point to is a micropayment site designed to integrate with Twitter.

If you do a quick search for Twitter's logo you will find that it is a bird. So the concept of putting a coin into that bird's mouth is very likely an original (though not necessarily inspired) idea of TwitPay/

It seems unlikely to me that they are trying to rip off Cody, and my gut feeling is that there isn't much of a case :(

If this is exactly the kind of discussion you want to avoid on this thread, then please delete my post - I shall not take any offence.


Just discovered that File Hamster is having a birthday sale, offering 50% of everything.

The Free version is still free!

The Plus version and Developers Pack are slashed to half thier usual price...


Wow - wow - wow!

This was unexpected - I thought that you might take a look over the weekend, and report back to us that the task was monsterously difficult, but that you might give it a go in the new year.

But no! Instead you whip up a complete solution and drop it on us like a 100 ton bomb of javascripting goodness :)

Congratulations on a supreme effort!

I have to say that it sounds like a compelling arguement.

I look forward to hearing Ecaradec's thoughts.

About a year ago I tried all of the software available, and settled on MainType.

It had all the features I needed, and has a nice DC discount too.

Living Room / Re: which operating system you like most....
« on: August 09, 2008, 09:36 PM »
I'm pretty happy with Win XP and can't really face the thought of having to learn something different... I must be getting old!


Welcome to DC.

I'm looking for a utility...

It already exists!

CAPshift is a wonderful utility by Skrommel, which was written when I made a similar request some years ago.

Enjoy :)

Developer's Corner / Re: Change Wacom properties with hotkeys ?
« on: August 04, 2008, 09:44 AM »
I need to assign my Wacom Graphire pen to either the left or right screen of my dual monitor setup, and was relying on an AHK script, which was very slow.

Found two interesting utils today, neither is working quite how I want it to as yet, but I hope with a bit of fiddling things will work out...


American McGee's Grimm: Episode 1 - The boy who learned what fear is


Is FREE on GameTap!

Looks fun and I love fairytales, however on my system it doesn't run! I launch the game, sit through the obligitory advert, am told "Please Wait" and after said wait, the screen flickers and I am back to the GameTap menu. :(

Very disappointed! Anyone else have better luck?

UPDATE: Downloaded Mr Robot (another freebie on the GameTap service) and that too fails to run. Not very impressed with GameTap so far!


Cute models :)

What software package are you using?

General Software Discussion / Re: Opera UserJS contest winners
« on: July 28, 2008, 07:25 PM »
Thanks for the notification.

I am a big fan of Opera's userscripts, but the fact that there is no central repository of current / maintained scripts is pathetic.

Compared with the system that FireFox has for hosting and distributing extensions, it is a very poorly implemented feature.

It seems so easy to rectify the situation, since they already have hosting for (the far less useful) Widgets, but Opera is (as usual?) dragging its heels :(

First new beta since January released last weekend...

  • Support for all uppercase and lowercase letters in the
    Unicode set for creating camel-case wiki words independent of OS language

Wish development was a little faster - I am using Wikidpad a lot, but there are a few shortcomings that I'd like to see resolved.

There's been lots of talk about this over at the SketchUp forums.

The general consensus seems to be that the program has a set of powerful features, but that the interface is almost totally unapproachable!

14 hours left...

GAOTD: http://www.giveawayo...story-binder-xe-291/

I am not sure whether to mention this or not, but it seems to me that the wrapper system used by GAOTD is easily circumvented, since it unpacks the contents to a TEMPorary location. Keeping a local copy of the unpacked file would allow re-installation of the application in the future.
