Re: go to stack exits handler

I did report it, and told them to read the thread, which has now moved. I will update at QCC, because I think the history of this is worth it, and hard to enunciate in the report form there. Yes, I went back through the posts to find the report link. Thanks for including that, and for keeping it up...

Re: Can any experienced HTTPS/MySQL user help build webservice.

More specifically, this part was a good question: Can PHP or the LC server script be "protected" so they do not compromise your Database access/content ? Short answer: yes. Medium answer: Nothing is ever completely secure; everything is hackable. But good practices can greatly mitigate risk. Long an...

Re: Is livecode dead?

If you're going for random shock value, why not get meta with it and make that the title:

Which method of those two is the Safest against online access hacking ???
Neither. Security is not a technology choice. It's an ongoing process, hopefully one that influences decisions throughout the design, development, and deployment process.

Re: Is livecode dead?

a presumption that the company isn't doing obvious things One of the reasons for this presumption maybe due to the fact that LiveCode keep bandying about the word "Community" in such a way that members of that "Community" imagine that means LiveCode should be telling that "Community" more about its...

Re: New beginnings...

I found out the same with my classes. When we started with Python first, some students were struggling by the end of the semester. They enjoyed switching to LiveCode. When we started with LiveCode, then switched to Python, they whizzed through the Python lessons in record time. We even had time to ...

Do the following: 1. talk to users, experts, anyone...get feedback - on the site, on what is most important to them, what isn't, what they like, why the bought, why they did not convert. collect as much data as possible, 2. Study your competitors, research what works and what does not work, read th...

Re: Is livecode dead?

Richard, Thanks for taking the time to address each of my points. #1 isn't done because it would of course be without value I wonder: at least it might stop LiveCode feeling a bit unstable and continually mucking around with their pricing strategy and their website. Changes to both pricing and the ...

Re: Backdrop is currently useless

P.S. If you know of any open-source apps which successfully manage to create a backdrop behind normal windows then please let me know - hopefully we can find the approach they use in the source! I wonder if wmctrl may help: http://tripie.sweb.cz/utils/wmctrl/ I experimented with it a while back, an...

Re: Is livecode dead?

since many of the changes they undertake are in response to user suggestions. RIGHT! (Yes, that is in capitals as it is meant as the equivalent of a shout) Then LiveCode have 2 options... Respectfully, a false dichotomy: #1 isn't done because it would of course be without value, and #2 is impractic...

Re: Is livecode dead?

And the thing is that LiveCode cannot make their minds up about anything, and that is demonstrated by their "forever" licensing stuff which suddenly changes, and so on, as well as their confusing presentation . . . I can report that this is a source of frustration on their side as well, since many ...

Re: Is livecode dead?

The conciliatory one, led by Richard Gaskin. My aim is less about being conciliatory than effective: For all the marketing advice given, the title is anti-marketing. This doesn't just misrepresent the state of LiveCode, but also undermines the credibility of the author as a source of marketing advi...

Re: Is livecode dead?

I'd vote against changing the title... MaxV's original intent was the shock value, and that's certainly what drew me in to read the very interesting discussion that I might have otherwise just skipped. Can you think of a title that might catch your interest but be more grounded in fact? LiveCode/Ru...

Re: Is livecode dead?

The OP can edit the first post, or a moderator like myself can do it. But I regard editing other people's posts a serious matter, and usually only do so when the post has elements that are clear violations of the Forum Guidelines. This one is just a matter of taste, so it seemed better to discuss it...
