November 30

Upcoming events in December

Today in the night, there was unscheduled network downtime. At result of technical issue during standard core infrastructure update DC1 (San Jose) went down for 30 min. Currently this situation is under control and our techs from Serverel Support investigate it to prevent same issues at the future.

In this time, our programmers work on the new update for CollectionStudio Online service – support of custom containers and several types of standard containers (such as wish list, for sale and exchange, and container for deleted collectibles). All this functionality will be then expanded into new section of our collectors’ web site – collectibles store, where you can sell, exchange collectibles with your friends. Containers functionality will be finished at first base version during next week.

From other side, the CollectionStudio will be also updated until the end of this 2011 year. The upcoming version will enclose several improvements in stability, more accurate drawing of main window, enhanced export and import etc.

Stay tuned.

Country flags

Many our users suggest newer flags for omitted countries in our CollectionStudio database. We always try to add them in new release. But it takes some time. Therefore our users have suggested to add possibility to manage country flags within CollectionStudio without building of the new version.

This is rather good suggestion (and we will implemented this one day); But we think that CS should have more setup for work with collectibles comparing to the work with information properties of collectible parameters. Yes, it is more convenient to have a list of countries with flags, the view is more nice-looking, but these flags add no additional information by itself.

When CollectionStudio starts, we want that our users will concentrate on the list of their collectibles or on its sampling. They need lots of fetch tools, special sort procedures, export and import, synchronization, check lists, light boxes, grouping and so on. This is a aim of each CS versions during all years that CS is available online.

Hmm, what we are talking about?... country flags! Here they are:

A pie chart of all the colours used in all of the world's sovereign-state flags.

Using a list of countries generated by The World Factbook database, flags of countries fetched from Wikipedia (as of 26th May 2007) are analysed by a custom made python script to calculate the proportions of colours on each of them. That is then translated on to a piechart using another python script. The proportions of colours on all unique flags are used to finally generate a piechart of proportions of colours for all the flags combined.

CollectionStudio Review by (Hungary)

Collection Studio was reviewed by biggest Hungarian software portal - Here it is:

Aki szereti gyűjtögetni a filmeket, könyveket és ki tudja még, mi minden mást, annak igencsak jól jöhet a Collection Studio program, amellyel akárhány katalógust kezelhetünk.

Sokunknak a mai napig nem sikerült hátrahagyni az ősemberre jellemző gyűjtögető életmódot. Mindent elteszünk, megőrzünk, mert hát jó lesz az még valamire. Ez a megállapítás az apróbb kacatokra, könyvekre éppúgy igaz, mint az érmékre vagy éppen a számítógépes adatokra. Az utóbbiak esetében addig viszonylag egyszerű dolgunk van, amíg a számítógép merevlemezén foglalnak helyet, de amint CD/DVD-re kerülnek és a korongok felhalmozódnak, már korántsem olyan egyszerű a dolgunk, ha szeretnénk megtalálni valamit. Ilyen esetekben vesszük jó hasznát egy remek katalogizáló szoftvernek, amelynek a segítségével rendezhetjük sorainkat.
