1  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / imagine future life on: Today at 08:54:56 AM
hello!

further to my previous thread about "internet of things", I would like to discuss ideas about how future life could be and I am always interested in novel ideas from you

imagine you are at 10am at work
and an idea crosses your mind, to have succulent roasted pork with chips for lunch/dinner
you call your home system and say "roasted pork with chips for two at 6pm" (because you will be a bit late from work
your home system will start ordering the necessary from the warehouse and prepare the dish, so that it will wait you at 6pm fresh and warm!
sensors and robotic arms will follow the recipe exactly, so they will make the perfect dish every time!
or maybe you can download from the net a traditional recipe you found from a village in Czechia! it will be compatible with your home system!
ofcourse it will do the dishes afterwards, pay your bills, etc!
you will call your driveless car to move out of the parking and wait you at your job's door and drive you home without hassle! it will leave you infront of your door, because it's raining and it will go find a parking and park itself!
imagine all the time and effort you spend do the shopping, cook, etc!
it will be now yours to spend it with your family!

3  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / looking for an adapter on: December 17, 2014, 01:33:41 PM
hello!

the power cable that goes into my laptop is straight and because the slot for it is at the right of my laptop, it interferes with me moving my mouse

so, I am looking for an adapter that will have the shape of Γ so that I will be able to connect it without that annoyance

is there any?

the plug is a hollow rectangular, a bit larger than usb, with a single pin in it

thanks!

I want to type correctly everywhere! in firefox, in chrome, in thunderbird, everywhere!

have you had a look at IainB's link?

I said I am not looking for that type of software, I need something more sophisticated

guys I don't need a text editor or word processor!

I want to type correctly everywhere! in firefox, in chrome, in thunderbird, everywhere!
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / autocorrect on: November 27, 2014, 11:32:43 AM
hello

IE or MS Office have strong autocorrect of common spelling mistakes

they somehow identify which word you want to write, evne if yu wirte lkie tish

but I want it to work in every text I type anywhere

is there a good solution?

I am not looking for a program that will autoreplace common specific spelling mistakes from a library, because my spelling mistake may not be included in the library

I would like something, maybe with artificial intelligence or something, that will detect the correct thing I want to say

thanks

what is two factor authentication and how can I know if I use it?
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / ebay snipping on: November 26, 2014, 02:30:57 PM
hello

is there a reliable, easy to use, secure way to snip an ebay auction?

set it to place a specific bid, specific seconds before end?

I found some, but they ask me for my ebay login info! isn't this dubious?

if it is free, that would be best!

thanks!

Did you restart your PC after the re-install, or at least re-open that CLI? If not then retry that first.

yes now it works! thanks!
and I thought with Windows 8.1, we had eliminate the need to reboot!

hello

in cmd, I type java -version
and I get this:
'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

how do I fix this?
there are several dodgy solutions on the web, but I need a legit and tested one

thanks!
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 07, 2014, 04:05:38 PM
I seem to more like Tasker

but I set it to enable vibration sound mode when I arrive work, and enable normal sound mode when I leave work

but it cannot accept it!

it changes both entries, so that they are both the same!

what is going on really?

anyone can help me with this please?
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 07, 2014, 04:00:22 PM
ok, I decided to give llama another chance

I was at work and I clicked to "learn the area"

it asked me how long I will be in that area, I clicked 4 hours

now what?

I guess you skipped all the help?

Never fear: Use Llama To Automate Your Android Phone With Location Profiles & More

yes, I skipped all the help, a successful software doesn't force you to read pages of help, it guides you with its helpful and clever interface!

anyway, after reading llama help, I don't feel much richer and I still think that it's a fairly bad way to set location triggers, because at work, when I go to a building I have never been before, llama will identify this as if I have left work!

19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 05, 2014, 03:58:06 PM
no I haven't told Llama to learn the area
I want to just specify geographically a point and then a specific radius and have it automatically find the cell towers or do whatever it wants in order to "learn" the area
isn't it sensible what I am asking? is it possible to do it?

and I have switched from llama to tasker, can I do in tasker? if not, I can switch back to llama, no problem
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 05, 2014, 11:14:22 AM
I have to be physically present in that location.
But again, while physical present in that location, I can find the current CELL ID I am connected.
But I want the action to be triggered in the surrounding CELL IDs! Under a specific radius!

When you're in the area you instruct Llama to Learn the towers in the area within a specific time frame.  There's no need to add towers one by one, any that Llama sees while in that position will be added as an area identifier.

Llama picks up 16 towers servicing my immediate area, over the space of 2 hours without me moving from my study.

Considering some of these towers are up to ~20km away from me, that's a rather large area - exactly how big an area are you wanting it to trigger on?

definately not 20km, I want it to be in a 200m radius!

You're talking about Captive Portalsw.

Hotspot Login

Quote
Automaticaly log into Captive Portals (Wifi Hotspots with a login form). The solution is configurable and not specific for one Hotspot. Currently there is only one configuration for German T-Mobile Hotspots as that is what the author has tested it on. If you make a new configuration, let him know! See the website for explanation of configuration terms.

excellent find, will try it asap!

JoTo is this "Google Geofences technology" different than GPS or CELL IDs?
is it more accurate than these? is it less power consuming than these?
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: location triggers for android on: November 04, 2014, 12:21:46 PM
thank you all, but all you missed the exact meaning of my question
including you Ath, no it isn't the same question

or otherwise, I haven't understood well how these similar programs function

I know how to set in these programs a GPS location and then set a radius to which an action will be triggered.
As for CELL IDs, there is a problem, because I cannot search in a map and assign an area there.
I have to be physically present in that location.
But again, while physical present in that location, I can find the current CELL ID I am connected.
But I want the action to be triggered in the surrounding CELL IDs! Under a specific radius!
how can I find all the cell ids within a specific radius? and assign a trigger to them?

hello!

I want to do stuff (like activate wifi, etc) when I enter/leave specific locations

so far, there are two methods to do that, one with CELL ID and the other with GPS

GPS seems to be more accurate but it's resources consuming

is there a way I can select a CELL ID and select a radius to define an area?

thanks!
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / bottleneck of gps on: November 01, 2014, 02:35:59 PM
hello!

what is the limitation of today's GPS technology and we can't position someone/something within let's say a meter accuracy?

what are the bottleneck(s)?

thanks!
