Great reply Shades.

I've already ordered "Thermaltake MASSIVE TM Aluminum Panel Dual 120mm Fans Adjustable Temperature Sensor Laptop Notebook Cooling Pad".

I connect my laptop to an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

I think the summary is that as long as the laptop is not performing CPU intensive tasks that might make it hot, it's ok to leave it always plugged.

General Software Discussion / Battery Management software
« on: May 20, 2017, 04:59 PM »
I am trying to move back to Windows from Mac.

One of the software I use on Mac is http://fruitjuiceapp.com/ which shows notifications on when it's good to unplug and plug back in depending on calibrations it does to the battery based on its cycles run etc.

Am I right in understanding that it's not recommended to always have a (Windows 10) laptop connected?

Is there a similar program for Windows? I did a google search and found http://batterycare.net/en/index.html.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

... Onedrive?  Really Microsoft?  You tout that as one of the possibilities for adding storage... and then your own program, which you also tout as having things always available, can't use it?

I think I've found a way around it using symlinks, but it shouldn't be necessary.

Apparently Apple had a collective brain freeze w/ the new MBP.

I've ordered a high-end Windows laptop.

I am back here. You've been warned!  :D

Same as edbro. Moved on to Mac.

Mac apps are no where near as deep and feature-rich as their PC counterparts though.

Ex.: Directory Opus kicks Path Finder's ass, FlashFXP eats Transmit for lunch, ClipX is better than ClipMenu etc.

What do I do currently? I build WordPress websites using Genesis framework for clients and recently turned my 500+ tutorials on how to customize Genesis into a membership site: https://sridharkatakam.com/. There are a lot of Mac specific apps like Gradient, CodeKit and Sketch that I use regularly which have no (good, that I know of) equivalents in PCs which is one of the reasons I moved away from Windows.

On a personal front, we migrated from India to Australia as wife got a job here in Melbourne.

Btw @mouser, have you looked at Slack? It's an awesome hosted chat platform that's much slicker than IRC. And for non-profits, they will offer full free offering.

I switched to a Mac. Not using the PC any more.

:huh:

Sublime Text 2 can be purchased for a discounted price here: http://www.rewardli....text-editor-discount

I am not sure how it is now. Some 7 or 8 years ago when I tried Linux (don't remember which distro) desktop OS, I had to copy and paste 3 or 4 lines of code to eject the CD tray. I stopped using it from that day onwards.

Learn WordPress, master a theme framework like StudioPress's or iThemes Builder, make money.

I did not read the page linked to in the original post.

After using iPhone 4 for almost a year, I have recently bought Samsung Galaxy S2.

It is pretty easy to use. Features wise it rocks, but UI wise of course nothing can beat iOS.

There are many other add-ons to do full page capture. I use FireShot.

I am currently using http://users.forthne...ograms/deskpins.html

If you come across a app that shows pushpin icon on all windows title bars (off by default of course) so that we can easily just pin a window with 1 click, let me know.

Firefox is just awesome!

Can't imagine browsing w/o useful add-ons like Keyconfig, Firebug, QuickDrag, Tab Mix Plus and Text Link.

I have 31 extensions which are active.

The last time I genuinely wanted to try Linux, I remember having to write 3 lines of code to eject a CD from the tray or something. I thought that was pointless.

Windows 7 rocks! I am not sure if there are tools (that are as good) similar to Breevy, windroplr, Directory Opus, ClipX, StrokeIt, Direct Folders that make me productive (i.e., work faster and smarter) in Linux.

If you have an iPhone, there are several free apps that do this like "Alarm Clock - Talking Time Clock" by yong chisheng.

@mouser or anyone else: I am on Vista. Uninstalled FARR, deleted C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\, reinstalled. When I ran FARR, my earlier settings and user aliases are still present. How do I start with a clean slate?

What is/are the folder(s) that contain FARR settings?

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CZB pack
« on: August 18, 2010, 05:31 AM »
No Perry. Nothing happens when TimeZone Options is selected even in the stable version.

Since FARR is portable (?), does it help if I zip my FARR folder and share it w/ you for troubleshooting?
