Besides the matter of printing any helpfile, and so consuming another tree, this looks quite good, and for a reasonable price.
We (as an industry) just have to improve on screen display quality for people to read all information from a display, instead of from paper, where at the moment it is printed, it's also outdated by the next release of the file.
I do realize that producing displays, or just better displays, does take energy and poses other environmental problems.

A proper DC review would be nice...

It's just fine over here too, also tried the 'wrong' copy, by selecting the forum text, and that worked as bad as argv showed.


Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Builds for Visual Basic 6
« on: June 07, 2009, 08:22 AM »
Continuous Integration is the key-word here, and there are several free systems for that, besides Visual Build Pro or Final Builder, although their integrations may be a little less polished then when using a commercial system.
Often used systems are: Hudson, Continuum and Cruise Control. All have their strong and weak points, but none cost money right away, so maybe that's waht some are trying to find? A sum-up of features en comparison can be found here


Ah, that was not quite clear from your original post :-[
So you're either missing a finer control over the screen-saver settings, or a kensington lock, connected to your body in some way (yes, that's not very comfortable), and to the laptop, ofcourse :-\

Similar problems exist when using a mobile phone in public, IMHO, and on most mobile phones, there's no kensington lock connector, AFAIK.

You could just set the screensaver (lots of them available) to run after 1 minute (smallest timeout available), and have it lock the screen ofcourse, but all in all it would just be annoying. And if I want to lock the system I can quickly press Win-L.

Can't see any use-case for this :huh: :down:

Ah, another hour of my life spent on reading 'the good stuff' :D

Thanx, as usual,

Well, I'm sort of 'around' Germany, but I won't be able to make that meeting :(
Would've been very nice to grab such a great mug!

I'm very interested in those mobile i-net apparatus, if only they came with a decently large screen so I can read it without my reading-glasses, and a very small size so it would fit in my pocket... Guess I'll have to wait for a foldable or roll-up screen :-[

It was a good read, as usual. Thanks! :Thmbsup:

For both the driver and the tool: Get updates to be Vista compatible, if none are available, switch to similar tools that are Vista compatible.

Most trouble caused by Vista is incompatible drivers.
Most trouble using/crashing Vista is caused by incompatible drivers.

What you might want to turn off is UAC (User Account Control) but then you most probably will get bitten by both statements I posted above.

I've been using Multi Monitor Taskbar (free)for several years on both XP and since over a year on Vista x64. It doesn't follow the XP/Vista theme at all, and the clock is fixed in US am/pm format, it can't be resized to double/triple height, and what not (see bottom-right of the page), but it does offer a nice second/third taskbar, display the time, an extended clipboard, and all the application buttons on the correct monitor(s), and can auto-hide, which is what I want/need it to do.
Personally I wouldn't bother for the pro version, it seems like a simple slightly pimped version.

Might be just good enough...


Hah, I knew that this was a special place, but Cybernet news should have awarded the only award possible for this site:

 "Must Useful Forum of Ever"  :Thmbsup:


Hm, still no mention of OpenProj, which I've been using (no connections 8)) for some time now:

Just found tool MouseMixer on this page:

Just got it from there, no problem. Do you have trouble getting it?

A simple RTFM should have fixed this, before the question would have been posted here...  :-[

(Yes, long time InnoSetup user...)

Living Room / Re: 64 Bit CPU - Is it worth it?
« on: February 05, 2008, 04:50 PM »
The good side of running Vista x64 on a 64 bit capable CPU finally came to light today as I was able to install the Windows Server 2008 (RTM, not RC) released yesterday (on MSDN) in a VMWare Workstation 6 x64 session, and I had it running without a hitch in under 1 hour. Rest of the software (app-testing) comes later...


It was great, (as usual) but it's good I had some extra spare time at hand :D

The new splitup into more sections is quite usefull!

What does this SnagIt do better than ScreenShotCaptor?

I really like the tagline I saw on another forum: "Programmer: An organism that turns coffee into software"

Maybe ShowOff by Skrommel could be modified to work for you?

Hm, it's a bit funny that it thinks my PC was on for the last nearly half year, as I've just powered it up tonight...

Glad I don't receive the announce mail in my work-email, as I just spent over an hour reading all the fun and interesting stuff, and I would also have if I where at work :-[

Thanks for this and all previous nwesletters, the're indispensible for keeping up with all the info on the site. :-*

Wouldn't WorkRave fit your requirements? It doesn't have as nice statistics that WorkPace has, but it's free (Open Source, actually), and that can't surely be said of WorkPace :(
I've been using it for about 5 years now, as a restbreak timer, and have been pleased with it from the start. (After using WorkPace for about 1 year, which is also quite Ok, except for the pricetag)

The always on Top requirement can be filled by the display as a Toolbar in the Windows taskbar. (If that's not set to autohide)
It doesn't show the exact counters mentioned, but you can display most of that on demand, from the systemtray menu.

The main purpose of WorkRave is to try to avoid RSI related injuries, and I assume it's what you eventually want this utility for?

The WorkRave website is rather Dutch (sorry) but most should be able to find the Download link...
