Security code required for New users to sign-in

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

Added a little security to manage account generation with _i3user.htm.

KitCADi3 New user account sign-up’s are required to use a security code that is random generated. For example an image shows the text of “2jim”, and a form input requires the text be entered by the user to confirm if they are an annoyed human (or a happy special robot 🙂 ).

Open Document Format Draw .sxd

Friday, January 11th, 2008

Added an OOo ODF 2D Drawing .SXD content.xml method into the example at KitCAD225_KGraphicControl.htm.

A SUN OOo ODF exporter is installed for KitCAD i3 to generate “application/vnd.sun.xml.draw” mine file types (OOo aka OpenOffice) on the fly.
Parts of this converter are in PHP and PEAR with the PEAR package of File_Archive, so it works with PHP4/5.

Currently testing the sxd output with win32 Sun Open Office 1.1.0 (needs update)… See Comments to this post.

A 3D convter version is being planned
