in reply to pVoice 0.01

Jouke,

Without beeing unpolite; isn't it better when you try to catch file opening problems instead of letting your script die...

I could imagine your daughter isn't able to restart the application her-self ... Generating an error message and letting the application return to the screen it came from seems a more humane variety then die (not only for the disabled...)

I've tried to run it, but after five minutes of trying I gave up. I'll try again tonight ;-)

 

Anyway... Keep up the good work!

Sinister greetings.

    Very important -but very un-programmer-ish - is to read the documentation at the top of the script. It's explained there how to make it run.
    The whole script can't do a thing if it can't open those files. And my daughter is the user, not the administrator. I'm the one who makes it work (to be quite correct: this morning I was responsible for the whole damn thing to crash so she had to go to school without her pVoice :( Literally a crying shame ), she's the one to use it.

    But -even more important- this is only version 0.01...things will be better in the future...tonight will be an evening full of pStory (see my homenode for details...Tomorrow night will probably be a night full of pVoice...
