Re: Too many updates

My proposal for the problem would be this: Normal maximum update-rate per application is once per month. However, if an app updates less often, it can accumulate a buffer of up to 3 updates. Thus, an app that does not put up an update for 3 months, would be able to trigger 3 updates in quick succes...

Re: FAT32 or NTFS ?

Oh dear, a lemming. Okay, i'll refute this one post and them simply dont bother. OK, I don't expect a reply to this post. Lets first tackle your win7 problems. My proposal is: Don't use computers that run vista or seven. It sux. Some may say that XP is old, but that doesnt say anything about effici...

Lets first tackle your win7 problems. My proposal is: Don't use computers that run vista or seven. It sux. Some may say that XP is old, but that doesnt say anything about efficiency. Windows XP is the oldest still supported operating system in the world. In addition, XP has already problems with mo...

Re: Too many updates

It seems changing a TPFC entry updates the corresponding feed entry as well. Some feed readers (for example Thunderbird) mark old, updated entries as unread while other ones (like Opera) still consider them as read. :|

Re: Too many updates

How will you notice an important update , if this is sadly the sixth update of the month :?: Something is wrong in the first place if an application has updated already five times in the month. The following is an example of what I still consider normal: Minor update at the beginning of the month (...

Re: Too many updates

NK2Edit has been updated six times during the last 18 days. This is getting quite annoying. (Poor NK2Edit users... I think this fast release cycle is even more annoying for them. ;) ) Another things we can do is to limited the "push to top" behaviour to only one update per app per n days. This mean...

Re: MyDefragPowerGUI

I just wish that if you set it to use CCleaner for the cleaning it would check if you have it installed first and then use the installed copy and respect any settings it has. Why not use a portable copy of CCleaner? I have created hard links to the files CCleaner.exe, ccleaner.ini and portable.dat,...

Re: .NET Applications

I thought this would not be a problem with Java, but other news came out about that platform also not being open and patent free . OpenJDK is 100 % open source. Precompiled binaries are currently only available for GNU/Linux, though. This brings up some questions: do any .NET programs here on the s...

Re: Internal scores of older applications

Some other ideas: In the program entries maybe list some of the people who have added it to their favourites with their name being a link to their favourites list? A bit like the lists on Mozilla's add ons site. It is already possible to see the list of members* who have voted a particular applicat...

Re: Easy Timer

There is more than one issue involved. Yes, the command windows are a very minor blemish. But if there is a superior alternative why not use it? And the app launcher designed to use parameters (currently named ParamRun) is intended for the occasional need, such as testing for portability. ParamRun ...

Re: Easy Timer

Eh, are the command prompt windows that annoying? If the batch file begins with the command "start", for example

Code: Select all

start application.exe /portable
the command prompt window will just flash instead of staying open.

In addition, PStart is able to send command line switches as well.
