I was shocked to discover today that dropresize.com displayed an empty web page. O.O
a few weeks’ time an indefinite amount of time, Dropresize will be under a new name. The idea of “dropping” and “resizing” might change in the application so I was thinking it would make no sense having it named as usual. With the upcoming new Windows 8, there might be some changes in the way this program will be used. So, to wrap it up, here’s currently what I’m trying to work on:
- Rename Dropresize into something else.
- Remove the website Dropresize.com.
- Create a new website that will be the home of the “new program”.
- This new website might have a community forum, news/blog section, and will host other software in the future.
- Anticipate Windows 8 and think about how this new program will fit: (hint: right-click menus, run as service, Windows tile?)
- This program will have a Home (free, donate) version and a Pro (paid) version, both are customized for its target users (hello webmasters ).
- Feel free to comment and post suggestions if you want some features to be included!
Just trying out some blog post while I am neither home nor in the office.
There’s not much to say about the Dropresize as of now other than the fact that I am already starting to code it.
Here’s a rough rundown of what’s happening:
- I am starting from scratch (well, not really, since the critical parts like resizing and folder watching only need minor changes).
- There will be two versions: Dropresize and DropresizePro, where the first one is free for home use and the second one has more features and is geared towards those who want to use it for their business (and probably costs something).
- The required framework is upgraded from .NET 2.0 to .NET 3.5 (This is already installed in Windows 7). You may download the .NET runtime from here.
I think that’s about it for now.
Apparently it works, since you are now reading this. Now I can make posts even if I’m outside.
Hello everyone! Dropresize development has been in pause for a long time now, and there are so many changes needed to do already. I know for some this is OK, but for others, I know you have been expecting your requests to be done.
With this, I have decided to rewrite the software from scratch. It will take longer to finish than producing an update, but I will do this in an attempt to make a much cleaner code and prevent hopefully some bugs from occurring right from the start.
You may continue using the existing version of Dropresize while the new version is still under development, and the existing version will remain free forever. Donations are still highly appreciated though so no problems there.
Let’s all look forward for a newer and better version of Dropresize!
Exactly two weeks ago, my middle finger got cut from a broken mug that flew away from my hand as I washed it.
After collapsing, a trip to the hospital’s emergency room, and several days of struggling with normal daily activities with an injury, my finger now just has this sensitive piece of new flesh with the old skin around it.
I want to peel it just like a windburn, but I wonder if i would be peeling the skin off my whole body before I finish. That would be a gruesome sight.
Anyway I’m actually glad it’s now healing well, I guess I just need to continue intakes of Vitamin C and A. Carrots and oranges might do the trick.
I’ve discovered that a carrot-orange shake tastes pretty good (I’m not a vegetable/fruit fan).
