Arizona Hot, that is priceless  tongue.  (P.S., I've had that same dream <sigh />.)
2  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: In search of an alternative to InfoSelect ... on: March 25, 2015, 02:27:58 AM
I wasn't aware there is any $100/year annual update!
Sorry I was unclear - that was a reference to InfoSelect's annual (?) update pricing.
Evernote does everything Infoselect did and it is available to me on any machine anywhere I am as well all the computers in my network.
Was a quite strong user of Evernote until they made it cloud-based.  I simply do not trust cloud storage of data that is sometimes private to me.  Even if it's not private per se, I have a personal dislike of other folk being able to predict my actions/proclivities based upon what I've stored more-or-less generically.

TaoPhoenix, I've been through a substantial number of variants on this particular theme.  MyInfo comes closest to my needs.  Biggest problem I have with it is the unwieldy - at least for me - tagging system.  When I store something, it'll have multiple tags.  However, I'm unable to search on combined tags.  That means that my tag input is increased significantly.  Example would be
  • Donation
  • Coder
  • Donation Coder
That 3rd tag should not be necessary, but it is, as far as I can tell.  Should be able to search/limit, for instance, Donation + Coder without having created the Donation Coder tag.

Another thing that is irksome is that automatic backup will sometimes take as long as twenty (20) minutes to complete, as it apparently does not perform that as a background task (and I have a lot of data stored).  All things considered, though, it does seem to be best of the breed for my purposes.

Forgot this was here  embarassed.

Been using MyInfo for quite a time, now.  Not as complete as InfoSelect (name as was sold to me), but close, and I don't have to pay $100 annual update - although I might, with a few changes - as was necessary with InfoSelect.  My disaffection with InfoSelect began when an update trashed my file history, running into nearly a decade, with no chance of recovery within the program.  Yeah, there were backups, but the same thing happened.  Lamentations to InfoSelect went unanswered, so I quit the program - I've no use for developers that don't respond (reminiscent of my lifetime license to WinZip which was not respected when Nico Mak (?) sold it to current developers).

Right now, MyInfo serves to capture and retain my needs/preferences.  Several limitations exist, but they be bearable, and the developer(s) seem amenable to suggestion, albeit somewhat dilatory in implementation at times.

(I distrust OneNote, Evernote and the like because too many cloud leaks/break-ins/intrusions have occurred.  Was an avid Evernote user until it migrated to a cloud-based format/venue.)

So-o-o ... how do you recharge the speaker  undecided?

Proximity?  Wave action (bobble)?  Friction?  Inquiring (salacious?) minds want to know  tongue.

[/b] Why kick them out? There is an argument for not vaccinating your kids, but hoping/expecting that they will get indirect immunisation (from cross-infection) from the newly-vaccinated children they go to school with.

Huh  huh?  That logic would imply that it's ok for other kids to get vaccine - in order to protect mine?!? - but not mine.  So I'd be anti-vaccine only for my child?  Something out of kilter there.

Not sure what any of this has to do with peer review and the scientific process though...

Strikes me as an active example of the process, albeit by non-professionals in the field  undecided tongue.  Sort of a peer review of Peer Review and the Scientific Process, as it were.

Why not  undecided tongue???

I'm a bit pissed off.

Speaking of which, how's the hand ... that oughta be worth at least a mini-rant.

- i didn't know where else to post

Hm-m-m ... think that resembles a few guys in my squad in basic  ohmy  tongue.

One also has to register if they plan on giving credits to a developer, in appreciation for their work.  Wink

<sigh />So much for anonymity  tongue.

Speaking of sound ...

Bought a Samsung sound bar w/woofer (separate piece) and attached to a ~55-60 inch LG TV via fiber optic cable.  Worked for a while, nice sound, but started cutting out - run ~twenty (20) minutes, cut off for a couple minutes, repeat cycle.

Then I bought a Samsung sound bar, woofer built in, and attached it to a Samsung 46 inch TV - never worked.  Samsung to Samsung, right?  You would expect compatibility, right?  Apparently not  undecided  mad.

Samsung has great video, but audio - in my experience, at least - is less than stellar if not totally non-functional  tongue.

You peaked my curiosity   smiley  and google gave me this
 (see attachment in previous post)

Seems to be a precursor to the way Yoda spoke in Star Wars  undecided tongue.

Makes a great stocking stuffer?  huh

Hm-m-m-m ... thimk I'd need a stylist for proper application  undecided.

What they need are a few rain forest zombies skilled in hunting monkeys with those little silent bows and arrows.  Also they could teach their contemporaries the culinary skills required to serve the brains in skull(there must be a term for it like a la carte but I'm not schooled in Haute cuisine.)   smiley

That would prolly be a skullet - assuming fried or baked brains, of course  undecided.  Otherwise, consult Indiana Jones (Temple of Doom) for chilled monkey brains as a dessert guide.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: November 24, 2014, 07:28:19 PM
Smart contracts, tokenized property, micro payments, and arbitrary escrow are just a few things there.

It's more than just rhetoric.
Well, it is rhetoric, at least to me  huh.  For instance:
  • Contracts are neither smart nor dumb (although the parties involved may be).  
  • If you pay $1.00 (USD) once, or a penny 100 times, you still pay the same amount (unless there's interest involved).
How does Bitcoin change that perspective  undecided?

Further, as the Internet gets more and more nationalized, how does Bitcoin survive?  If I cannot contact someone in China, how can I pay them or receive payment from them?  Bitcoin, insofar as I can determine, requires a free and open Web - which is currently being strangled by a significant number of nations.

I'm not averse to the concept, but I simply do not see it surviving in current political climate(s)  Cry.

Yeah, verily  tongue Kiss tongue.

I can't define lolligaggin' or galavantin' but I know them when I see them.  smiley

I can. Those were two of my grandmother's favorite words. Grin

Lolligag - to be busy doing nothing, just sitting around, making haste slowly

Gallivant - making the rounds in search of a good time or crowd to hang out with - ideally with (or in hopes of meeting) an attractive  member of the opposite sex; running around with your friends
 (see attachment in previous post)
 Thmbsup

Yep!  Paternal grandmother pretty much the same, 'ceptin' she expanded galivantin' to include any non-lolligaging, nonproductive activity - including Saturday afternoon matinees at the movies  Cry tongue.  (This thread would be somewhere between the two (2))  embarassed Grin.

You'd think that we've become unable to hear the truth in a children's cartoon or something...

Sadly, that seems to be truth  Wizard.  On the other hand, it's easy to laugh at such  boohoo
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Anyone have a recommendation for a USB voice recognition headset on: September 05, 2014, 05:49:39 AM
Been using a Plantronics bluetooth earbud headset for last few years ... came with Dragon, but don't recall version - ten (10) or eleven (11), probably.  Works well for me 'cause I tend to wander when talking - seems that moving my legs stimulates by thinking (?) processes.  Near as I can make out, it's either N10887 or BO18482.  Works well, as long as I keep it charged, and I can answer the front door  undecided and still keep my dictation working  huh.

Edit.
It's a boom earpiece/mike, not a headset.

That boy is one of the funniest every time he opens his mouth. I wonder if he ever listens to what he says.
Prolly not.  Then he'd have to show/demonstrate recognition of what he just said  tongue.  I'm not particularly anti-Kerry, but I do get a lot of laughs of his public statements  tongue tongue tongue.

I tried looking, but I couldn't find any new ones, and I'm guessing that antique ones won't be useful due to the leather being too old & unmaintained. But, I'll keep looking.

Every time I change blades, I keep thinking of straight razors and stropping them, and wondering why I'm wasting a blade that can perfectly well be sharpened to use again. It seems wasteful. God knows a "dull" razor blade is still incredibly sharp.

Renegade, when I was using double-edged blades - Gillete, Shick - it was common practice to strop the blade against a bathroom mirror.  That realigned the edges, smoothing out the parts that had been realigned/misaligned by the act of shaving.  Dunno that might help ya, but it's worth a try.  Saved me a great deal of discomfort when I couldn't afford a new blade every day.
