Sounds like a good solution :Thmbsup:.

It's primarily the little paperclip icon here:

103
Regarding the reply arrow, I was wondering if it would be possible to overlay it on the other post icons? I am missing it on the "thread has an attachment" icon for example.

I made a version of the green arrow on it's own with transparent background in case that helps.

Developer's Corner / Re: 18 Monospace fonts comparison screenshot

Interesting, is that on Windows, and if so are you using the FON version of Gohufont as well?

My first thought was aperture as well. If you have the camera below the floor, all die will have the same distance to the camera, and you can use the aperture to make only a very narrow area in focus. I don't know how easy lenses capable of this at short distances are to come by, perhaps a macro lens.

Very disappointing .. and not sure what I am going to do with 3 Kaspersky licenses.

No mention of GetDataBack?

I am sorry, but I am not going to register just to read an article.

General Software Discussion / Re: YNAB moving to a subscription model
« on: January 02, 2016, 02:47 AM »
At the bottom of the front page there is a link that says "older versions", which leads to http://classic.youneedabudget.com/

I hope any future YNAB4 versions will be available there for download.

General Software Discussion / YNAB moving to a subscription model
« on: January 01, 2016, 07:05 AM »
You Need a Budget has been recommended before on DonationCoder. I noticed they changed their business model from $40 to buy the current version, to a subscription model where you pay $5 a month (or $50 a year).

I think one piece of sound advice if you are trying to get your financial situation under control, is to try to limit the number of monthly recurring subscription fees.

Also, I am not a fan of the move to having all your information in the cloud. I rather prefer to have my financial information on my own computer.

There is a long thread on their forum with people voicing their opinions about the change.

That is great news! Let me know if you want me to compile a new version of the HTML Help file at some point :up:.

Too bad I can't sign up for the contest since it is on facebook.

111
Well, he does say existing files signed before that date will be tolerated, so (at least for now) it is a question of whether you need a new key for future apps.

112
From a cursory glance; for end users it means nothing, for developers it means they may have to buy a new certificate in order for their future signatures to look properly validated.

Non-Windows Software / SoftMaker Office 2016 for Linux
« on: December 16, 2015, 01:47 AM »
SoftMaker released the 2016 version of their office suite for Linux the other day :Thmbsup:.

http://www.softmaker...ftmaker-office-linux

But no good news without a little complaining :-[ - I am using Linux more and more for testing and development, and I had a SoftMaker Office license valid for three PCs, so this sounded great. But it seems when you buy a Windows license, that is valid for three Windows installs, and a Linux license is valid for three Linux installs. So apparently I have to buy two licenses (totalling six installs) to install on two machines? :huh:

Also, Load and Help 2015 has launched.

114
I should add this all also depends on what you mean by "put these together in one program" -- if each separately licensed component is .. well .. a separate component, and the main program links dynamically to them, then perhaps it is more likely to be possible.

115
Standard disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, and this is not legal advice.

I am quite far from being a license expert, but I have agonized over the various implications of various licenses in the past, so I would like to suggest GNUs comments on licenses, and WikiPedias license compatibility chart.

From these, the MSPL does not appear to be compatible with (L)GPL, and Apache is only compatible with (L)GPL v3+ (you may want to check if the LGPL library is actually "LGPL 2.1", or "LGPL 2.1 or later"). The problem, I think, is than any amalgamation would have to be under the (L)GPLv3+ to accommodate both the LGPL and Apache licensed code, but the MSPL does not allow sublicensing.

Just to elaborate, Matthew Butterick explains quite well why professional fonts make a difference compared to system fonts in Practical Typography.

I've used the free version of Charter before and it's great on print. It does not appear to include hinting though, and can look awful on screen.

If you are not afraid of command-line tools, it sounds like the kind of thing ImageMagick would be able to do. A quick google points to the trim command.
