Goat 1000 home
Welcome to Goat 1000 - this is where you'll find some of the bits and pieces of software that I cobble together for fun. Please feel free to download them and try them out. All this stuff is freeware, no guarantee that it will do anything, etc. (though if it does fail to do anything, please let me know!)
Only two and a half years after the last release, here is version 1.7 of TrayBlank. I didn't bother releasing version 1.6 because it only added one extra option, a slight delay before the screen saver starts.
Version 1.7 adds an extra hotkey for configuring the screen saver, and there are now checkboxes in the hotkeys setup dialog to enable/disable each of the hotkeys individually. I added this after I found myself turning the monitor off accidentally a couple of times.
The new version of TrayBlank is available from the downloads page.
Version 2.22 is another small SVGGraph update, this time improving the way
that the legend works. The bulk of the legend code has been moved out of the
main class into a new
SVGGraphLegend.php file which is only loaded
if you are using a legend. Here's an example bar and line graph:
This graph is using
legend_entries to set an entry for each
dataset, but it is also using the new
legend_text option for
structured data, adding an entry to the legend for the red marker in the
“Jul 2016” position. The data and relevant options are shown in
the code snippets below.
$settings = array( 'structure' => array( 'key' => 0, 'value' => array(1, 2), 'colour' => array(null, 3), 'marker_stroke_colour' => array(null, 4), 'legend_text' => array(null, 5), 'axis_text' => 'axis', ), 'legend_entries' => array( 'Marketing', 'Sales' ), 'legend_position' => 'bottom right -5 -5', );
There isn't as much new stuff in JPEG Saver 4.17 as I had planned but I wanted to release it now because it fixes a couple of bugs, one of which was really hard to find.
The main change in this version is the addition of filter presets in the filters dialog. I've compiled in a few that I think will be useful, but you can also add your own, modify the defaults, and mix them together using the “Insert” option. If you have any really good ideas for filters please let me know and I can add them into a future version.
I'm still planning to add filtering by tags/keywords, but that was too complicated to make it into this version.
