Just popped by to be nosy

...and to say this all sounds great to me! Oh and I corrected a few typos, grammatical errors whilst I was here too to make it easier to read. Keep up the great work!  Яєdxx Actions Words 17:44, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


There are no known bugs.


  • A button to return to the main menu would be nice... or better yet, a menu bar to access the other modules. 6×9 Whoops… didn't notice before that the menu window stays open in the background! (No idea how I could miss that…) — 6×9 (Talk) 18:13, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
    • Jep I thought you'd noticed it but wanted to have quick access to it (although I don't know for what reason you'd need the other tools while working with one) - Chris 18:56, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
  • The scroll bar I mentioned before so you can access the bottom of each page?  Яєdxx Actions Words 13:21, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
    • I'm sorry I forgot about that. Green check Done by Chris

Possible features

There are quite a lot features I could implement into LWS, which are technically no problem and might be helpful for you. However, implementation of certain features would increase the amout of work, so the release of the next version would be a lot later than the current aim (Oct 25, 09). To give you an overview of some features, I'll just list them up below:

  • Built in low-functionality browser, could be extended by some features like one click access to all important searches (though mabye not really useful as you've got access with your own browsers, however you decide)
  • Options for all applications, especially useful for the Time Adding feature that most likely will be used in combination with other windows. Extra options available like:
    • Stay on top
    • Semi-transparent window
    • Snap to the screen-borders
This option-thing will definitely take some time as you want LWS to save and remember your choice of course and it'll require a technique I've never used before: an additional *.ini file will be neccessary then, saving your preferences.
  • All the other websources for PreCoder could be added, though it might increase the working-time. But if this makes it a lot easier for you, it's certainly not a problem to add them! Codes for layout and page-creation purposes are already written and working the way they should, just analysis of input is the only remaining (sometimes tricky) part.

Other features may follow, add your own request to the requests-section on this page.

Chris I just wanted to say that I have been a bit distracted recently with one thing and another but I will dedicate myself to this as soon as the fog clears. Then we can look at promoting it. In the interim rest up - you sure deserve it!  Яєdxx Actions Words 05:37, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
