Display Changer II 1.0.5 Released

This update fixes an issue with switching between extended mode, cloned mode, and a mixture of the two in a three-monitor configuration.

Display Changer II 1.0.4 Released

This version fixes the issue with adding a monitor to a configuration.

Display Changer II 1.0.3 Issue Adding Monitor

It seems that the latest version of DC II has some problems adding a monitor to a configuration. I’m looking into it. Sometimes, using the -extend or -secondary switch will make it work. I’ll post a fix as soon as I can.

Display Changer II 1.0.3

This update fixes an issue with cloning and extending your display configuration. I’ve also added support for selecting only the PC screen or only the secondary screen (like switching between your laptop and the projector or PC and TV).

Display Changer II Coming

Display Changer II uses the new APIs in Windows 7 (and later) to configure displays. It includes support for cloning displays and uses configuration files instead of switches for resolution settings. The alpha release will be published this week.

Typecast and Carrier Pigeon On Hold

I’ve put the Typecast project on hold, and I’ve removed Carrier Pigeon from general distribution. They weren’t up to my standards, and I have another project that I think is more important (or at least, more interesting) at the moment. I continue to use Typecast myself, so I’ll return to it someday.

Typecast Released

I’ve published an update that includes support for e-mail reminders.

I’m putting development of Typecast on hiatus for now. It’s a frustrating application that nobody seems to be interested in, so I think I’ll focus on something that’s even more interesting to me for a while. I’m sure I’ll get back to Typecast because DigiGuide seems to be abandoned, and I need something to manage my television listings.

Typecast Released

Highlight programs that are currently airing or in the past.

Typecast Released

Added a “demo” swatch of the border color, background color, and image to the left of each search in the list to remind you of the highlights you selected for each one.

Added a check box to each search which will quickly show or hide the results of that search.


Important: You must delete your Searches.sdf file. (The path is in the Settings window.) The schema has changed so that in future releases, Typecast can save your data instead of requiring a delete (like this time).

Released a new build of Typecast with improved performance of searches with thousands of matches.

Typecast, from now on, can save your search data when I change the database schema.
