Living Room / Re: Can someone remind me why are we using email ?
« on: November 09, 2009, 07:07 PM »
IT experts at a firm in South Africa said it takes up to six hours to transfer four gigabytes of encrypted data between two of its offices which lie 50 miles apart.
I don't think that is so crazy.

I think the point is that sometimes we use the internet when other methods would be faster.

In the above example ...
1 copy the 4GB onto a USB drive = 1 hour (my PC can do that)
2 drive 50 miles at 50mph = 1 hour
3 drive back = 1 hour
total time taken 3 hours ... or 1/2 that of the existing method

Living Room / Re: How would you improve a standard PC keyboard?
« on: November 09, 2009, 06:51 PM »
I'd want the number block on the left side so the mouse won't be too far away from the center of the keyboard. Better yet, completely do away with the number block like many laptops do

or something like this (see picture) http://www.crunchgea...ntent/photos/akb.jpg

[main keyboard] [touch pad]

the touch pad can be programmed ... mouse, number pad, media etc

Also, why the *frack* have peripheral manufacturers still not made a mouse with a wheel that supports side scrolling

Ehtyar.

What if the mouse had a tracker ball instead of a wheel?! That way would have up/down left/right and could put a button under it.
So ... button | ball | button ... [] ( ) []

Therefore a quick hack would be to replace WinMinimizeAll and WinMinimizeAllUndo with the code to insert Win+D into keyboard.

Ive tried the above hack and it works

replace all
  WinMinimizeAllUndo
and
  WinMinimizeAll
with
  Send Keys #d

ClickToDesktop

sorry to put this here but I couldnt find a better place to put this

I have 2 monitors and DisplayFusion (software that adds additional taskbar for additional monitors)

[primary monitor - real taskbar] [secondary monitor - displayfusion taskbar]

Clicking desktop on primary monitor minimizes all windows on primary monitor/real taskbar - but windows on secondary monitor/displayfusion taskbar are unaffected
also
Clicking desktop on secondary monitor minimizes all windows on primary monitor/real taskbar - but windows on secondary monitor/displayfusion taskbar are unaffected

Clicking the 'show desktop' icon (Vista) hides and unhides all windows (both screens)

The problem seems to be with WinMinimizeAll and WinMinimizeAllUndo (http://www.autohotke...s/WinMinimizeAll.htm)

Oddly Win+D seems to minimize/restore all windows (both screens), but Win+M minimizes (not restore) only windows on the primary monitor.

Therefore a quick hack would be to replace WinMinimizeAll and WinMinimizeAllUndo with the code to insert Win+D into keyboard.

I hope this helps  :)

Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: resize window from centre
« on: November 04, 2009, 09:20 PM »
Many thanks  8)

Ive hacked your code a bit ...

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

LControl & WheelUp::
IfWinActive,ahk_class Progman
Return
IfWinActive,ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
Return

WinGetPos,X,Y,Width,Height,A
WinGetTitle,Title,A

X := X-8
Y := Y
Width := Width+16
Height := Height+16

WinMove, %Title%,, X, Y,%Width%,%Height%
Return

LControl & WheelDown::
IfWinActive,ahk_class Progman
Return
IfWinActive,ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
Return

WinGetPos,X,Y,Width,Height,A
WinGetTitle,Title,A

X := X+8
Y := Y
Width := Width-16
Height := Height-16

WinMove, %Title%,, X, Y,%Width%,%Height%
Return

this allows for the window to be positioned anywhere
also by not changing the Y the title bar stays still

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: resize window from centre
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:06 PM »
Normally when you resize a window you grab the bottom+right corner and the top+left corner doesnt move.

My suggestion is ...
That the center of the window remains constant, but the window resizes around that center. All four corners moving out from the center.
- when holding down mouse + shift

OR optionally
The bottom corners moving out from centre (titlebar Y (up) position constant)
- when holding down mouse + ctrl

Of course this would also need to work on any edge.

hope you like.
