So kalos needs a form filler I guess, forgetting it has nothing to do with phone but the browser?

not sure if a simple form filler will do that, because after you connect to such wifi, the login website doesnt open automatically, you only get a prompt

Android wifi with credentials doesn't auto connect?

The WiFi does connect, but the proxy/router asks for confirmation or credentials before you are allowed to access the outside world.

I can confirm this one - Recently tried to connect to a BTOpenZone WiFi network the other day, not even an hour after disconnecting, and it had already forgotten me and wanted my e-mail address to login again - Not really much of an issue to be honest.

ofcourse it is an issue, because your phone is supposedly connected to wifi, but it is not! and it doesn't automatically switch to 3G! It is in a state with no internet access!

Hello
Often in order to connect to a wifi network, it is required that you visit a webpage and click there a login button or enter your username and password and login etc.
This procedure you often need to repeat after some time.

As you understand, this is very problematic. I just want whenever I am in range and whenever I have wifi enabled, I want to automatically connect to the saved wifi network, without having to do extra actions.

Is this possible?

I understand that the network administrator may somehow control access to the wifi, but since I have the credentials, I want to automatically connect!

Is there any fix for this?

Thanks!

it doesnt really make much sense that you keep trying to convert those with the latter approach, to your enthusiastic approach.

Not to mention the futility of trying to innovate a dinosaur. Nobody is going to waste the time and effort to create a new and better payphone...because they are simply no longer needed. Gas stations are in an earlier yet much the same situation. There is no point in streamlining/improving a process that will start dying out in another 20 or so years.

I don't object to hybrids...I just find the toothless emasculated ones to be obnoxious. There are a few on the market that don't completely suck.

Hydrogen filling stations, yes.
Charging stations, yes.
Gasoline stations ... Let. It. Go. The risk/reward factor just ain't there.

look here what they develop, while we already have driveless technology
and it's not a small project, they want to make it detect even electrolytic imbalances!
they spend so many money and effort, while the future is clearly driveless!
Ford unveils a car seat which detects when a driver is having heart attack

You do realize that that assertion is rather obtusely predicated on the assumption that it is perfectly fine for any or all of the other occupants in the vehicle to drop dead...right?

Just because a vehicle is/was/would be driverless doesn't mean having it arrive at its destination with a corpse in it is to be considered a win.

That technology has potential, and a definite future in many applications - Kind of like Life Alert for your car.


I insist it's useless and you know why? because if we want to monitor health of frail individuals, we should do it constantly, not only inside the car

I had in mind wearable devices that will monitor your health and report in case of emergency, that's why you don't need car seats to do this!

it's the health organizations and medical devices companies that should take care of this, not automotive companies!

My preferred LaTeX editor is TexMaker. Kalos, it has what you are looking for, in the drop-down menus «LaTeX» and «Math», as well as left side panel symbols.


I just installed TexMaker.
It seems very hard to use program for people who are new to this.
I was expecting a GUI of mathematical symbols, that when you click on each icon, to display an example on how to use the code to generate what you want
is there anything like this?

You should really try Sygic*, its partly free, and fully usable off-line (without internet connecton) if you pre-download the maps when still on WiFi.

* No connection to the company.

Sygic, Igo, Copilot, are all good and can all be used offline once you download maps.

thanks for your suggestions but I really need the excellent search feature of Google Maps, that you type anything (like petrol station, mcdonalds, partial post code, supermarket, etc) and it returns excellent local results

You mean the 'voice volume' ? I have already set it to maximum.

But the USA voice doesn't say "including street names" below!
So it won't speak out street names! Which is an absolute no no.

Also, that Waze thingy, doesn't offer the ability to preview the voices somehow, which is bad

Haven't tried this yet, but apparently the app SilentNight's description is:

Quote
Configure the phone to go silent and/or airplane mode between two times of the day.

Note: one can get the apk from that page or install via F-Droid -- see the page for details if interested.
thanks but I kinda liked llama, because it also gives me the ability to disable wifi between two specific times of the weekdays
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: android app to set my vibration mode on specific hours on: October 22, 2014, 11:09:43 AM
Today I used llama.
I was enthusiastic about the many options it offers but I am disappointed.
This is because I set it to set my sound profile to silent, from 9am to 5pm when I am at work, and it didn't restore it at 5pm to 'normal profile'!
How can I do this?
Do I have to set another event trigger to set my phone to 'normal sound profile' each weekday after 5pm?
Same with WiFi, while it disabled wifi while I was at work, it didn't re-enable it, at 5pm.
Any hint?

I used Waze today.
Initially I was amazed by the good amount of warnings before turns and the timing they occur.
However, I used the Serena voice, the only UK English voice that has 'street names' and it was awful!
The quality is so bad, that it is heard like she speaks from a bad phone line!
Also, it is not loud at all!
Compared with Google Maps' voice which is loud and clear.

Any hint?

The part I can't figure out how to do it is the 'automatically navigate to work' part

You said you're using Waze, right? For me, Waze handles that part automatically. When I start it up in the morning, it knows itself that what I normally do is drive to work, and it offers me that straighaway. And similarly in the evening, it knows that I'm going to be driving home.

how does that do it? how did you set it to do it?

Um... That article doesn't actually support your position, as it primarily confirms all of the issues/drawbacks mentioned earlier.

Why don't you get taught from the past? Problems are only to overcome them.
It's actually good that someone actually tries to develop robotic refuelling.
See the glass as half-full.

It's an android mobile.

I don't know, is there a UK provider that does it?


I use lyca

Hello!

I often receive a voice message on my mobile saying blablabla call me at 0728473832, etc.

Is there an app that will automatically detect that phone number and offer me to call it?

Because I have to listen to the voice message a couple of times and write down the number and then dial it, etc which is a bit tedious and risky for errors

Thanks!

PS: I can see a problem with when voice message contains extension phone numbers, but okay.

I also want to automatically start up waze at 8am and navigate me to work, is it possible?

With Tasker that's pretty trivial. And you can go farther, like having it shut down Waze again once you've arrived at work.

The problem is that tasker is a paid app. I don't have problem to pay for it, but aren't there any freeware?
Can llama do it?

hello!

is there an android app to set my mobile on 'vibrate' mode automatically on specific hours and days? e.g. 9-5pm every weekday

thanks!
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: when will we eventually be able to on: October 21, 2014, 03:06:07 PM
just a ring to the hole of the fuel slot would be suffice!
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: latex on: October 21, 2014, 02:46:33 PM
I did downloaded Lyx

but you must already know the latex commands in order to type them and use them

I, instead, need something that will visually help me type latex code and thus help me learn latex

isn't there anything like this?

or maybe I miss something with Lyx?

we need to make corporations co-operate to develop world standards
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: when will we eventually be able to on: October 21, 2014, 02:35:18 PM
can we agree what the target is (refilling without even getting out of the car) and that we should work to develop the technology to achieve it?
