  1. 1 million downloads achieved

    Just here to say congrats, and to mention my hub now has over 500 apex users. :huh:
  2. download later

    I also like this idea. A lot of programs use this now and would be very useful.. Perhaps a topic split (even though I know it won't be added till after version 1).
  3. Your browser of choice

    Firefox at least for now :wub:
  4. [Crash]Apex Beta 3

    Yup this is. Has been reported several times so far even another just today .
  5. ApexDC b3 Crash Reports

    As awesome of the crash report is do you have any other information about it (like what you were doing just before it crashed, did you click something specific that sort of thing)? Also this is a known bug and being worked on. However it's always good to know extra info on it in case there is soemthing new.
  6. Kick if in PG list

    True I'll agree with that but we have to protect our users now. Where I run my hub, it's increasingly hard even just to find OP's to help run it because everyone is afraid of legislation that is currently being made. As it is mine is a fairly private hub running inside of a campus lan on the residance network. But the PG list allows me to give not only myself and others in the lan as much protection as I can give them. Which I think will slowly become important for many hubs to do not that far into the future. So I'm voting yes to this feature for although I may not totally agree with it in some ways I think it's a more important step to protect the community.
  7. Looking for new Support members

    I would also like to apply to the position. I've op'd my campus Gaming clan's forum for just about a year, as well as run the campus Hub. I know lots about DC and Was very active in the forums up to end of May. I'm now approaching school time of year again and as such will have much more time to spend on the forums (ironic but I work a lot in the summer more then I do in the school year). I have prgramming experiance (limited in C and C++ but lots in Java) and have been using Apex since V 0.2)
  8. Raw Commands

    Hi there as an OP of Uvic's Hub I was wondering just how these Raw commands work, as I can't seem to find any good tutorials on how to use them. Do you know anywhere I could get guidelines to this?
  9. ApexDC++ and Windows Vista

    As far as I know UAC does not effect Apex at all, I've been using the two together since feburary and have had 0 complications. Not many folders are protected fully anyway. Also are you running a standard account or an administrator account??
  10. disc space error

    Not where the server is located.
  11. April Fools: ApexDC++ 1.0 and PeerWeb DC++ 1.0

    >.< Should of known better on a side note that install ate all my favourites ;)
  12. Can someone explain the LIMITS settings?

    Well you probally havent turned it on and I don't say that to be rude. There is a button in the main gui that turns limits on and off, and isn't perhaps intuiative to notice it. I've attached a screen shot with the button circled. As for this, this means if your downloading from several sources (so several people) and the total file speed is above that number and is below what ever other settings you have set they are disconnected. That way, if you have no sources, that person will still conenct to you and you will download from them intill you have sources with better speeds. Hope this helps ~bigcanuck
  13. apexdc++ without the segmented download?

    so... with this doesn't actually disable it...? though when your downloading from one source if it's downloading in chucks it still downloads from 1st peice to last peice... because I can stream video as I download from Apex for example (internal private lan speeds up to at least 500kb/s is why I can stream).
  14. Linux Project Development

    As far as I know there is only cvs access for apexdc linux
  15. Vista deleting settings

    /off I know but being a laptop I have to be careful with cooling issues too. But as a general rule I don't shut it off unless Im' between locations.
  16. Vista deleting settings

    Everytime I restart Vista, which I've recently upgraded too. Apex forces me to reset all my settings, which it seems are not saving upon exit and I have to rehash my entire share (sorta annoying with a 300 gig share). Any ideas?
  17. ApexDC++ OP

    [quote name='
  18. Vista deleting settings

    Worked fine it seems I tested that and made my computer sleep etc. Though this is only a stop gap mesure as it if my share changes a lot I'll have the same issue again (I cycle stuff through my shares, not to mention when I download non hub files). Which is why among other reason I just don't let my laptop sleep lol.
  19. Vista deleting settings

    lol fair enough. *pokes Crise and Lee on the shoulder* hehe. Ya that's my assumption, every works fine as long as I shut Apex down before it goes to sleep. So it's only when Vista is force closing programs or suspending them. :)
  20. Drop Down Menu In Users List

    Hmm I would think, though this could be useful perhaps for non-op's, that this would be in turn a better option for the ApexOP client. As to how to save them. I think a small table that in the file-->settings-->experts(perhaps?) would be a good place to input them. Alternatively The ApexOP if it has a lua scripting could have a plug in where it searches all the said users tags and even auto kicks for your tags that you have listed. Anyway just an idea.
  21. Vista deleting settings

    no offense taken lol I do enough comp support myself and know what some people do sometimes lol. No it's installed to the default apex folder so in my case C:\Program Files\ApexDC and I start it through either a short cut on my desktop or in the start menu (yes both target files are identical). Also their is no 2nd exe in my case. However do you know when Apex saves stuff on close or at random intervals? I'd imagine it should do both... or if you know where it's located in the code roughly I could go find it. Edit:: It seems to more so only happen when my computer goes to sleep (which I've now disabled since well it annoys me anyway). However I'll be glad to help further explore this with you guys if you want. I suspect it has to do with how vista suspends it's programs and isn't allowing or tiping off Apex, to when it goes to sleep, that Apex can save it's settings.
  22. Vista deleting settings

    That would make sense however that'd only be the case if both .exe were running at the same time and since my short cuts point only to one it would avoid said issue.
  23. Vista deleting settings

    I've tried playing around different things to no avail. It seems to do it as well when my laptop goes to "sleep". Can someone tell me when Apex saves it settings? I think it's when the program closes?
  24. Vista deleting settings

    I should mention (my bad) that that UAC is turned off on mine (finds it annoying personnally). other than that I'm running Vista Ultimate. I'll assume you mean the apex installer, and yes I did. I suppose I could try reinstalling it via binary but I was being lazy to be honest.
  25. blacklist

    Well Canada did more or less make it legal to download most music lol. not that we're allowed to upload.... lol
