Digital fax replacement.

Overview

Note: Hard Copy is no longer under development, and the developer provides no support for it.

Hard Copy is a digital fax-machine replacement. It sends transmissions to and from other Hard Copy users.

Simply type your message or open a text document, click connect then hit send and your message pops out the recipient's printer less than ten seconds later. To recieve, you just open Hard Copy and let it sit. Its free, its fast, its international; and no additional hardware or software required!

YOU MUST UNBLOCK AND PORT FORWARD PORT 6311 UNDER TCP PROTOCOL TO USE HARD COPY. PORT FORWARD HELP IS INCLUDED AND IS REQUIRED READING BEFORE SENDING ANY TRANSMISSIONS.

To send to Halcyon D.R's printer, connect to halcyonprintserver.staticcling.org.

What's new in Hard Copy

Version 2.6: Milestone release. Port numbers have been changed to 6311 as to avoid conflict with other services that might use 8080. Added an auto-complete IP box. Added a different template for sending an advert to another location.

I'm sorry, but I can't see the point of this. The recipient isn't going to want a print coming out at random on their specially inserted letterhead paper just as they're about to print out an important letter. And considering they have to actually install the application and fiddle about with their firewall why bother? A replacement fax machine? Most digital faxes send to email which is probably a better idea. Why not email a nicely formatted text file that they can output at their leisure?

Good afternoon gprovan, I understand your critique, but I have to say it is misinformed and misleading to others who might read it. Hard Copy is portable, it doesn't need to be installed and depending on your internet/network setup, you only need to make a few changes and never touch them again. Hard Copy is intended as a *free* replacement for faxing. Last time I checked, you had to pay for fax to e-mail, or any free variants plagued you with advertisements. The whole point of Hard Copy is that everything is instant in the same manner as a physical fax machine. The reason I developed Hard Copy in the first place is that I noticed in my college an awful lot of running around to pass messages to lecturers who were lecturing, which interrupts lectures and causes a lot of people walking around the building when they should be working. The problem with e-mail is that, yes, the recipient prints it off at their leisure. If someone in a lecture needs to go somewhere urgently, the lecturer would have to check their email, whereas it would be easier to just pick something off a printing tray and read it quickly. Speed, speed, speed - it's all about speed my friend, room to room, building to building, either way it's super-fast. As for the letterhead complaint, I'm going to take that on as a possible option for the next release, so users can have an offset for letterheaded-paper. Thanks!

Also, another Halcyon D.R programmer just pointed out to me that Hard Copy isn't in your most recent downloads...did you even use the application before leaving a review? Please don't take this as me being hostile or rude, but it's polite to try something before judging it... If you'd used the application before, you could leave appropriate criticism and Hard Copy can grow and prosper :) -James
