"May cause conflicts...."

March 07, 2005  |  By SuperCrisp

 |  Version: The Lonesome Electric Chicken 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I really enjoy this program, but uses should be aware that it may conflict with their value system and cause a wisdom crash. In all seriousness, I seldom use these quote proggies, but this one is nicely done, and it comes with some good quotations, IMHO.

"A great desktop accessory!"

A delightful little app featuring some very apt quotes. And if people disagree with what quotes he's used, they're more than welcome to code their own quotation program.

"Lovin' the Chicken"

 |  Version: The Lonesome Electric Chicken 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
To all of you looking to add quotes, John made it simple. Open your package contents of the LEC, find the Quotes.plist, and add in the XML lines you wish to the bottom of the list (increment the quote number!):


<key>Quote 0068</key>
<dict>
<key>Attributed</key>
<string>Carl Jung</string>
<key>Body</key>
<string>Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.</string>
<key>More</key>
<string></string>
</dict>

is the typical structure. The key tags stay the same, simply fill in the string tag content with your own useful or useless quotes.

Sure, it'd be nice if the author would add in an editor to the preferences pane, but it's not really necessary if you aren't afraid to dig in.

"Delete all other applications."

March 03, 2005  |  By Cowicide

 |  Version: The Lonesome Electric Chicken 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.


If you only run one application for the rest of your life, it should be The Lonesome Electric Chicken. All other applications are fried. Some may bawk at this, but I think those same bawkers will have quite a bit of egg on their face once they realize the truth; The Lonesome Electric Chicken is what their computers were made for.

Do I recommend The Lonesome Electric Chicken? Are you insane? Of course I do.

"Superb"

Summary

This is yet another example of StimpSoft's relentless dedication to providing solutions to problems you never knew you had. Top-shelf quotes provide ample food for thought, and that glowing chicken might even provide food if you get hungry enough.

What's new in version 2.0
  • The quotes can be resized (regular, large, extra-large).
  • You can now set the transparency of the chicken and quote balloon. This means you can set it so that only the quote appears.
  • A new window level has been added, "Desktop picture mode". When set, the chicken acts just like another part of your desktop picture: when in the background, it stays behind everything (even icons), it isn't made active when clicked and will not be hidden when "Hide All" is selected. To make The Lonesome Electric Chicken the active application again (for moving the chicken, changing preferences or quitting), just click on the dock icon.
  • You can now move forward and backward through the quotes (the key equivalents have changed to forward and backward arrows). Moving through the quotes manually will not increment the auto-quit or cycle count. In other words, if you have LEC set to automatically quit after 1 quote, you can manually cycle through as many quotes as you want. After you stop cycling, the timer would start up again, and seeing that it went through one of it's own cycles once, quit. Probably doesn't make much sense, does it?
  • More quotes from Nietzsche, Joyce, T.S. Elliot (why wasn't he in there?) and Jung added.
  • A ton of minor spelling errors and other annoying bugs fixed (thanks to Lawrence Hargett).
  • Other interface tweaks.
  • General
