Just an FYI... Malwarebytes stopped triggering on your site.  :Thmbsup:

Still being blocked by Barracuda here.

Congratulations and best wishes! I'll throw some rice and bird seed in your honor!
Looks to me like the picture was taken out doors.  Did I win?   :D

Living Room / Re: Anyone here using a standing desk?
« on: July 24, 2018, 11:30 AM »
Have you got any feedback yet for those of us as might be interested, please?
I'd be very interested - studies of work environment design and ergonomic have shown that these factors can have profound effects on the worker's productivity and sense of well-being.
However, some recent research seems to indicate that the supposed benefits of open plan offices are not as straightforward as had been hypothesised/believed: The Open Office Revolution Has Gone Too Far

Sorry, I don't have any personal feedback as I still don't have the standing desk installed at my desk. However, three workmates have the VariDesk desktop installed with varying degrees of usage.

One person is a younger (30's), health-conscious man. He seems to use his to adjust his seating / standing height a couple times each day.
Another person is an older (50's) man, also health-conscious but I haven't seen him change his desk height since it was installed, more than 2 months ago. Then again, he does spend an hour and half each day at the gym.
The last is a man in his 30's, smoker, not health-focused. I've seen him adjust his station but on average, only a couple times each week.

Of the two that do adjust their station height, they've spoken favorably of the VariDesk design, stating that it's easy, stable, and doesn't take a lot of time to move up or down.

Part of the delay with my station is a change in thinking for the standing desks. The management is now looking at adjustable legs, electrically powered to move the entire desktop up or down. They're still trying to figure out how to either switch from L-shaped desks to rectangle desks or somehow get the entire L-shape desktop to raise and lower.  My guess is that we'll be looking at switching to a rectangular desk, but time will tell.

I use an app on my iPhone/iPad called "WorkTime" to display the time, weather, and calendar.

I like it but would love an app that has all those items but also has an RSS reader or better yet, a scrolling news headlines, ala "Desktop Ticker".

Anyone know of anything close to that?

Do you think this cautionary tale applies to ALL 4k monitors, or the particular make & model you tested?
Do you have additional specs such as what graphic card you're using? What are the make and model of your monitor you're returning?

The company I work for just sent around an email inviting each of us to sign up for a standing desk from Varidesk. Many have signed up (50+), most have opted in for a mat as well. Looking forward to trying it as my middle has been expanding wa-a-a-y too large!

I'll follow up once it's arrived and have had a chance to use it a bit.

The shortcut Ctrl+R works as a universal hotkey to restore scratchpad.exe

I have the same issue as Tomos. Is there a config file or registry setting that can be tweaked to change hotkey combinations? When I try to reply to emails, I instead get a new Scratchpad prompt. And another dollar in the swear jar.  :mad:

it looks like the error is related to the SOUND FILE not being found or valid.

That was it.  :Thmbsup:
Don't know what happened to my sound file, but I swapped it for a different one, and voila!

Thanks for the help, sorry for the trouble!

I unchecked the "Check for updates" and restarted.
Same error.

For reference, I have all books checked, including "User Quotes". This includes
  • The Book of Corkscrews
  • Mini Dictionary
  • Unix Fortunes
  • oblique strategies
  • philosopher quotes
  • UserQuotes.txt

I've included a screenshot of the General Options.

I've also attached a screenshot of the error.

Running PopUpWisdom v1.09.01.
Upon each startup, I receive this error message:
   This file can not be uploaded.

How do I identify what file is trying to be uploaded?  And where is it being uploaded to?

I've just updated sWeather to v1.5.9 which should support Yahoo!'s new weather API.  Please download and test.

Works great for me! Thank you for the dedication and hard work you've put into this - I really appreciate it!

those are covered by the Crucial System Scanner

Not to brag or anything (oh, alright, yes, to brag... :P), my beloved brother-in-law wrote that application for Crucial!

1. I use DuckDuckGo instead of Google. Is the search engine configurable?
2. I use a Mac. I'm assuming this is a Windows application?
3. We have ad filters at work. All I see at the download link is a bunch of "Access blocked - content alert" windows and a download link. Like... LOTS of content blocked. MediaFire?  Eww.
4. Where are notes stored? Cloud? Local? USB? Are they plain text? RTF? HTML?

This prompted me to see when my "DC birthday" is.  In a couple months, I'll be 10!

heh, just checked: I'm 6 days older than you :D
Feel like saying, "Mom always liked you best"

Well poo.  It was the hotkey combo. That's so frustrating - I tested it before and got no reaction, checked assignments using Ethervane ActiveHotkeys (might be an old version...) and couldn't find any reason why F11 NOR F12 would work.
I changed it to Ctrl+Shift+M and it worked perfectly.
I've since reassigned it to Shift+F10 and Ctrl+F10 and those both seem to work.

Thanks again, sir!

Having problems getting the Add Comments function to fire off. I tried shift+F11, nothing happened. I changed the trigger to shift+F12, again no prompt to add a comment. Ctrl+F11 (and now Ctrl+F12) both prompt me for a destination folder to copy to, but for whatever reason I can't seem to add any comments!

Got any suggestions?

Love sWeather, does what I need it to do very well, thank you.
I'm currently running v4.5.4 build 1 on Windows 7 Pro.

This falls under an enhancement request, I guess.
Having the current temp displayed in system tray is fine, however I typically auto-hide my taskbar/system tray so I don't see the temp unless I change my Windows focus to the taskbar.

What'd I'd like is to have the titlebar be configurable to display current information and to have an option to roll-up the display to just the titlebar and to keep on top of other windows.
The advantages to this are:
  • the information would be displayed in a small, unobtrusive bar
  • it would always be available without having to move/click the mouse or hit the Windows key
  • it would show the information I'm interested in at a glance

This is a mock-up of what my current sWeather window would look like with this change (yes, I know my theme isn't to everyone's liking...) :

Any time-travelers here want to comment on this article?

I already did, next Thursday.

I haven't used them, but I have been subscribed to BookBub since around the beginning of the year.  I really like them as I have a lot of choices for sources such as Apple, Amazon, Smashwords, etc.  I've loaded up my iPad for offline reading that'll keep me busy and entertained for quite awhile.  :)
