I've been playing around with the website, and it should be a lot simpler to add a request now (no understanding of wikitext required!) There's a form at http://tinyappz.com/wiki/Add_Request that will add a new request to the list.

Unfortunately, this change also makes it a bit more difficult to fill a request (but not much more.) Each request now has it's own page in the Request namespace. The Open Requests list is now dynamically generated.

To fill a request, you now need to go to the page for that request (from the # link in the Open Request list) and add a "filled" variable to the Request template.

For example:
##### code:
{{Request
|requester = User
|request = The text of the request
}}

is filled like this

##### code:
{{Request
|filled = Application Name
|requester = User
|request = The text of the request
}}

I hope that's not too complicated. It seemed like a good tradeoff for the benefits - simpler request adding, retaining old requests, each request gets it's own page (add the page to your watchlist to get an email when the request is filled) etc.

I may look into creating a more automated way to fill a request as well, but this is a good start.

 FlyingCheese Jan 17, 2007 OH THANK GOD! I never thought I'd be happy to see yet another lubed up man-ass. Would it be in bad form to request a second one? If not, I would love to see this as well: A Firefox extension that allows uploading pictures to multiple hosts, ideally as many of the popular ones as possible (waffle, imageshark, photobucket, imagesocket, etc.) This is what I want: I want it so I can post pictures on other forums besides SA just as easily. Edit: I didn't add it to the wiki because I didn't know if it would be cool to have 2 open requests. If it's not cool then just ignore this post. # ? Apr 21, 2007 07:01

I don't know where you're getting this 2 request rule. I'd rather have as many requests as possible, that way I can cherry pick the interesting ones (or at least the ones I think I can do.) I wouldn't be surprised if the other contributers agree. Even if they don't agree, it's my thread

well, I haven't really done any research, but http://www.microsoft.com/typography...uner/Step1.aspx provides a quick interface if you can use IE. Here's the same thing cropped down to the bare bones, might work off a thumb drive, depending on your permissions. http://www.tinyappz.com/wiki/Image:ClearType.zip . I'm not going to call this a filled request, because there's probably a much better way - maybe at least an interface to the dll that doesn't require IE.

I just didn't want to sound like an rear end in a top hat, "WORK MY LITTLE PROGRAMMING BITCHES!"

It seems like a VU meter would be fairly easy thing to do since it's pretty simple on the hardware level too. There isn't a lot going on to do that. But then again, all I know of programming is some Java and stupid little batch files.

If your keyboard has a Context Menu button (usually in between alt + ctrl on the right hand side) you can press that, then M and you enter rename mode on whatever file you currently have highlighted. Not what you were looking for exactly, but a whole application may be overkill.

I'm making a "global one" so far. Once I figure out capturing system-wide key presses, I should be good to go. Also figuring out how image shack's upload mechanism works.

Perhaps you might know about this function but it is constantly returning 0/NULL and I don't know why. I tried to import GetLastError() but that is also returning 0.

Offhand, without seeing the rest of the code, no. But I can refer you to this:

Remember to keep the HookProc delegate alive manually, such as using a class member as shown in the example below, otherwise the garbage collector will clean up your hook delegate eventually, resulting in your code throwing a System.NullReferenceException.

I am looking for a program that will either compare an archive to a txt file, or from crawling a website. To see what I mean, go here http://www.mameworld.net/maws/ and hit search. It lists a bunch of files. What I would like is for it to compare a folder full of zip files, with the file names on that website, and if it doesn't find it on that website, it moves said file to a subdirectory.

Pretty much I made a mame cabinet, but only have two buttons. I have all the games, but it would take a really long time to sort through them one by one to check and see if it's on the list or not.

Basically, I'd like to have a bandwidth graph in the corner of my screen. iStat doesn't have one, and Activity Monitor is huge and requires that I keep the process list open. Also both of these programs have the overhead of tracking other statistics which I don't care about. On my PC, I use NetMeter - which allows you to customize the colors and transparency when the mouse is on/off of the graph. It also keeps daily/weekly/monthly stats and pops up a warning when you're approaching some user-defined monthly limit. I haven't found anything like it for OSX yet

Just wanted to say I found a program that does this, except for the limit warning and comprehensive stats reporting. Has a few other cool features though. It's called X Resource Graph.
