02 February 2005

Network on screen display.

What is LanOSD for Mac

OSD is for "On Screen Display", basically, it's what appears temporarily in your TV when you switch channel or change the volume. It's a way if displaying "passive" information that doesn't necessarily require all of your attention, doesn't need a specific log, but which is nice to know anyway if you happen to look in that direction.

LanOSD can also forms a network with it's other LanOSD friends running in other machines close by, and decide which one(s) are supposed to display messages. Each machine has a priority, and the machines that have the highest priority at any given time displays the messages.

LanOSD is Scriptable, so you can integrate easily in all your scripts and procedures. Also provided is a command line tool that will work even if your procedure is in a cron job, for example.

Add more space in the "message text" entry field. Add new item under menubar item for 'send icons" and show icons choices as cascading menu. it's neat and has potential.

maybe someone should build "menu bar icon concentrator" It would be a pull down menu bar item that stores all of the apple or third party menu bar items, cascading of course. You get to pick and choose which items to remove from the main menu and put into the "concentrator". You also have control over how they arranged and displayed (icon only, name and icon, font size, alphabetically, most used at top, etc0. This would be a great way to have quick access to those items that you would like to get to quickly without taking up menu bar space, esp on smaller displays.

Wow, this is really cool. The only thing I don't like is the menu bar icon; I would really rather not have Yet Another Icon sitting up there, especially one that doesn't seem to have much actual use.

Very elegant notification app, and I have to say I'm quite impressed. Added support to my script in about 2 minutes, worked like a charm. I hope to see this app succeed.... it's really cool :)

Hmmm.. its nearly perfect even in Beta oter than a few aesthetic issues. I've noticed a few things though: - Multiple lines seem to affect positioning - Positioning is a little "off" (longer lines of text shift the OSD to the right) - When local messages are sent to the network they seem to "echo" and result in 2 lines of the same text. Would be nice to be able to have a display that is just centered in the screeen.

Great little utility. Downloaded it, and in 5 minutes wrote a little Entourage script that would display new messages. I can not wait to sit down and start writing more scripts. The only suggestion would be to allow control in the background transparency of the notifications. But Im sure that will be done in future releases.
