Re: .NET Applications

As to getting Mono working on Windows, its a non-simple procedure and outside of my expertise. If someone reading this can make some headway on that, I welcome it. Agreed, but once you get over all the fluff in a portable applications sense what it comes down to is one folder containing the Mono bi...

Re: .NET Applications

Hey, who are you calling a fake programmer ? ;) I do all my coding in C# (both server and client, for work, for study and for fun) and I very much consider it "real" programming, just as, say, C++ is (which was the previous language I wrote in). I also consider it powerful for most if not all uses,...

Re: .NET Applications

I'm pretty sure that if there were unmanaged C# libraries, the development time would be exactly the same. :roll: The operative word here "if". I did research it prior to commencing development, and for what the .NET framework gave me versus other free offerings like Qt or wxWidgets, .NET was the w...

Re: .NET Applications

@ M@tty - Just curious, is that Matty or Motty? I'm asking because it seems Israelis are always pro .NET for some reason :lol: Haha, it's Matthew but most call me Matty. And I'm very much English... I'm a fan of .NET because it cuts development time down to a fraction. Recently for my final year th...

Re: .NET Applications

It's pretty late so this reply will be brief (not in a rude manner). Create a software that will contain portable dot net libraries! Have you tried Mono? Seems to fit the bill for what you're referring to. Encourage Microsoft to open up the program to a less restrictive license. Check out http://en....

I have to disagree, about 3.5 I agree but .NET Framework 2.0 is shipped as part of Windows XP SP3.

Re: Ethereal

It should be noted that the portable Ethereal does not require administrator settings as it does not install a capture driver on the machine then uninstall it after closing, like I believe the 'portable' Wireshark does.

Re: NirSoft - New for 2010

Since you felt the need to post merely to correct guiness, I feel I should refer you to the Wikipedia entry: "Although any period of ten years is a decade, the term usually refers to a period of ten calendar years whose digits are equal up to the tens digit, and whose last digit runs from 0 to 9."

Re: DAA2ISO

So if the application had a GUI of some kind you wouldn't be against the application? If the application had a proper GUI then it wouldn't be a console application and therefore my previous point would be void. I have no issue with the functionality of this piece of software, and my problem is not ...

Re: DAA2ISO

Hi guinness, because of the useful element I thought it deserved a chance in the database. This is where I disagree, but I'm not sure what stance Andrew Lee would take. Based on what the FAQ says ("command-line apps are pretty much always portable, so there is not much point listing them") I think h...

Re: DAA2ISO

Should this really have been added? It is a command-line application. Although it can be used without command-line switches, I hardly think popping up an Open Files dialog constitutes a GUI.

Re: Editing function implemented

I'm not sure but I think as a result of this change (as I don't remember there ever being a problem before) a slight bug has crept in. When using the search function on the homepage, if more than 5 results are returned the "Page: 1 2 etc" links do not contain the search term (the ?q= element of the ...
