Contributors of the Week 2011-09-26


This week we're recognizing turboccc. He's already well decorated as contributor of the year for 2009 and 2010, but like the energizer bunny, this guy just keeps going-and-going-and-going smile

This last week, turboccc's been quite busy making the top-notch Extra POI Editor (EPE) even more "awesomer", with new beta versions 5.26, 5.27 and soon EPE v5.28.

He's posted about some of his work: teasing out the intricacies of icon color depth, making new weapons to take out duplicates in large POI files, and battling elusive stack overflow bugs.

The latter may have involved some nursing of head wounds with Caipirinha after banging it in frustration on his desk. (Hey turboccc, please be careful with that brain!!!) smile

So once again, please join me in thanking turboccc for his great contributions through Extra POI Editor.

Thank you turboccc!!!

Thank you all!

Thank you all for those good comments. I am honored to get this COW award. It is always a fun site to visit. The members are great and everyone feels welcome. I come here everyday. Thanks to all of you for your contribution.

I feel I have not produced or help enough at POI-Factory compared to other members, but I have been working on other GPS programs lately (EPE, RGN_Tool, GIR_Editor, RGNVoiceEditor and NonTTSVoiceEditor. Hopefully those programs will be of some interests to you although some of them are for advanced users with a solid heart... smile

For sure, NonTTSVoiceEditor (not released yet) will attract your attention as the new version will allow you to extract the non-TTS voice samples for encrypted voices (Dora, DrNightmare, etc...) and not just the regular non-TTS voices. I have other ideas in mind as well to make it attractive to you.




Thank you for all software and help you have given us to enjoy.
