Frequent updates

Since winter is coming I’m improving NRcontrol almost every few days. Right now I don’t have any automatic routines in NRcontrol for notifying users about new versions.
In case you’re interested to be notified please use the blog subscrition option on the right side or contact me directly at “minimaster” at “gmx” dot “com”. I won’t use your email addresses for anything else than notifying you about updates of NRcontrol.


Font quality under Windows 7 – Conman font for NRcontrol

A little tip Windows 7 users:
I just moved my development environment over to a Windows 7 PC. After the initial installation of the Conman font, the font looked quite bad.
By default my Windows 7 has the ClearType option turned on with my 24″ Eizo LCD. I opened the control panel – went into Display-Appearance and then into Cleartype – text adjustments, disabled Cleartype, then I was taken through an wizard dialog with a couple of text displays. Selected the best looking text examples, most of the times this was the pre-selected box, and then the Conman font in the NRcontrol application was looking just as perfect as it did on the old WinXP PC.
