I’d like to ask another question regarding the example item if you don’t mind.

It has pictures of Apple products and even the logo. How do you sell such items on Envato? Does the author pay Apple for that or got some permission or something?

Thanks :)

One question though, will buyers also get notified when the author replies back to the comment? If not, could this feature be easily modified to that?

I think I’ve just encountered the weirdest bug in my life. And this time I believe it is really a bug and not me. Could some of you try this and confirm please;

Open a new Flash project. Create 2 movieclips and 1 button in the library. Name them A, B and C respectively. Place an instance of A on the stage and name it A, no need to draw anything in it. Draw a basic rectangle in C and place an instance of C in B. Still inside B, place a dynamic text field over C and name it T. Type something in it so the text covers button C. Add script “T.mouseEnabled = false;” in B. Give B a linkage name of MyB. Then go to stage and add this script;

A.gotoAndStop(1);
var myb:MovieClip;
for(var _n:int=0; _n<4; _n++){
    myb = new MyB();
    myb.x = _n * 150;
    addChild(myb);
}

Run it and see the text field in the first created MyB object interferes with mouse event, but others work fine.

Now move the first line to the bottom and try again.

var myb:MovieClip;
for(var _n:int=0; _n<4; _n++){
    myb = new MyB();
    myb.x = _n * 150;
    addChild(myb);
}
A.gotoAndStop(1);

This time all MyB instances work correctly. Am I missing something or A’s gotoAndStop prevents the first MyB object’s actions from running?

EDIT : It’s not actually TextField related. I think the first created instance of MyB in above example doesn’t get its frame codes processed.

I don’t know about Mac but about laptops, the only reason I’d prefer a laptop over desktop (or rather forced to) is portability and nothing else. So if you need something to carry around, buy laptop. (Though they are not that lightweight to carry all day.) If that’s not the case, I always recommend a desktop. Desktops are cheaper and provide the best way to work for me. You could always buy external Keyboard & Mouse for the laptop but hey, if you use a laptop as a desktop like that, what’s the point of having a laptop in the first place :P

So you worked on the computers area for as long as 20 years and yet you call your old Windows/Linux a PC but a OS/X a Mac? I’m pretty sure Mac are PC as well.

PC stands for “Personal Computer” here so you are right. However since the hardware for both are different in many ways, people decided to use PC / Mac to refer to them. Otherwise we would have to say Win PC / Mac PC all the time. People found that unnecessary I guess so this is sort of an unwritten rule.

To OP : I did not use Mac but you should decide depending on your situation. If you are sticking with Mac from now on, it could be better to learn it’s shortcuts. But if you might return, or already use PCs somewhere else between days, sticking to a single setup would be less confusing.

I could get into this if I make more money. I do like helicopters, infact I have one of those hand sized infra red controlled ones. I broke 2 of cheaper ones before.

This could scare some people though, it looks like an UFO :O

Good lucks with it. Sure you can ask more but I am no engineer :)

I’ve diagnosed the problem as a back-light malfunction, when I shined a flashlight on the monitor when it was turned on I could see what was supposed to be displayed. But I have no idea what to do now.

This happened to me a few months ago. At first I thought the monitor was dead, but then just like your case, I noticed that the image was on. I opened the inside of it. There were 2 mini fluorescent bulbs(long white glass) above & below the screen glass. One of them had one end slightly burned and the cable was broken. I couldn’t find replacement bulbs around and I didn’t want to order from the net because I couldn’t trust and also I assume they come in many different sizes. I didn’t know if I could order a fitting one.

So I decided to handle on my own. I had no proper soldering experience and no solder so I simply took another piece of cable and attached to the broken cable. Then I made the other end connect to the bulb’s burnt end. It still had shiny parts for conductivity. It was a really brute attempt but it worked in the end. Months passed and I still use the monitor.

Now what I can suggest;

I can dismantle usual electronics so if you are comfortable at that, you can try dismantling the monitor. Be really gentle and patient. Those things have various cables around, you shouldn’t do hasty movements or you’ll break them. I gotta tell it wasn’t as complicated as I imagined. Try to reach those fluorescent bulbs and maybe it’s a similar case and you can manage on your own. If cables seem intact it’s probably the light bulbs that are broken, no way for you to fix then. See if you can find replacements around shops. It won’t be hard to replace with new ones if you got that far.

If you are not comfortable, simply don’t touch it :D There’s image so it’s something to do with your bulbs. Either their cables are broken or the bulbs themselves. Ask any engineer around.

They may record some kind of checksum. Both files having same size and same checksum could be assumed to be the same. Unless you know their checksum formula and intentionally create 2 same sized but different files producing same checksum, chances are those files are the same i guess. So if one of the files is zipped, it is considered a different file.

Small files could produce same checksums so maybe they do this only for big files to save space.

do anybody know why the old unused accounts is not deactivated/deleted? :notfunny:

Why do you want such a thing? As far as I know there’s no site on the net which completely removes inactive accounts. E-Mail providers for example, clean and disable your mailbox however the account actually remains. Who knows, user might be back any moment. No place I know does that so why should envato?
