Darn if that isn't the most polite feature request I've seen!

Jim

Hmm, looking at your sig I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. Just so you know, I'm licensed to carry, and I've warn the nickel off the trigger smiley

Not sarcastic at all! The post, that is. As for the signature?  Hmmm..   Wink

OK, thanks Supe! BTW, mine only checks manually; can't find any setting to auto-check for updates. Same for you?

Hmm.. I didn't receive any notification about V.7. And when I click on "Check for Updates" it tells me that V.6.73 is available. (I presently have V.6.67d)

Were you notified about the new version, Tom?

Thank you.

For my Epson inkjet printers I had very good luck with 123 InkJets

I used cartridges from the same company (123inkjets) for my Canon All-in-Ones (830 & 860), though I purchased them from Amazon. Never had a problem with them at all. I never even got a dry cartridge.

When I got my Epson Workforce AIO I couldn't find ink cartridges for it from that company on Amazon, unfortunately.

OK - Either Macecraft is at it again, or someone is appropriating their name and trying to pull something.

I just received an email - ostensibly from Macecraft - offering their latest - jv16 PowerTools X. Now we have already seen where Jouni - the developer - has moved to Thailand and left his staff stuck to answer questions, all without pay. Why would we believe that he is back developing this program?

Oh - and the URL it tries to send you to is an odd one. Definitely not the old Macecraft site. (I didn't try it - don’t want to catch anything).

Amazon Echo: What Amazon says about their new whatchamacallit thingie - Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It's always on—just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it hears you say the wake word, "Alexa." It's also an expertly-tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound.

Here's a funny remix that shows what Echo might do.

Deozaan,

Why none of that matters even a little bit:  Television "dramas" are not considered to be serious or anything at all like reality. They are pure escapism, nothing more, nothing less.

To wit: Baywatch lasted on the air for 11 seasons - that's 242 episodes! - and was one of the most watched shows in the world. (And that isn't counting the spin-offs Baywatch Nights or Baywatch Hawaii).

This is another one of those "based on a true story" shows. There actually IS a Walt O'Brien who supposedly did do tech work/hacking (their word, not mine) for the government (not sure whose government) when he was a teen. Here's a link:

Of course his "story" is having some authentication problems.   Cool

14  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: SoftMaker Office HD, the only complete Office for Android tablets, free beta rev on: November 05, 2014, 01:20:11 AM
I haven't downloaded this yet but I did own and use the Softmaker office suite for Windows PPCs back before they were phones. THeir alternates for Word and Excel, Textmaker and Planmaker were truly the best I had seen. While Word and Excel for PPC - distributed by Microsoft - lost most formatting when syncing with a desktop Office version via ActiveSync, the Softmaker programs retained all formatting. And they had some really cool formats and styles. E.g., all 3D charts were available. Full-featured tables in Word, columns, text-wrapping.

I don’t know if the Android apps are the same but if so, I'll be using them.

I have to admit that I never tried Ad Muncher before, because of the price and because I was afraid that I might like it. — True. I do.

So far I'm amazed with the amount of garbage this app is capable to block. Also, I've never realized before how much the AdBlock plugin slows down the browser.

Yeah, but their biggest problem is no filtering on any https:// pages. YouTube, for example. All other adblockers seem to be able to have an effect on https://, yet Ad Muncher has been promising such coverage for NINE years!

I remember a few years back someone here suggested creating a software group on a relatively new social network called "Facebook".   tongue  Actually that is exactly when I joined that soulless network. Unfortunately, after forming the group we never did do anything.   Sad

Do you all (who originally joined that group) remember?

Here's my baby - from 1986! Still runs though to be honest I don’t use it that much anymore. Hate to get rid of it - kinda like my old 1928 black cast iron Royal typewriter...

oh, oh, what about...

primer (not that exciting but perhaps the best time travel movie - don't mention 'donnie darko', what an incredibly overrated piece of work that is).

Primer is great! Time travel flick that was shot on a very tight budget, and yet is just devastatingly clever. Confusing if you don’t pay very close attention.

And actually I love Donnie Darko! I didn't fully understand it at first but after reading the book written by Richard Kelly, the writer and director, I appreciated the story a lot more. Budget constraints prevented a lot of the details from being included but the backstory for the script is actually very sharp.

19  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Leadertask Daily Planner Free on Bits Today, 4 Oct 2014 on: October 04, 2014, 10:35:10 PM
Leadertask Daily Planner is free on Bits duJour today, 4-Oct-2014. However the deal doesn’t appear to be as generous as it first looks. First obstacle - Malwarebytes is preventing many from accessing the site at all. Also, the program isn't offered for sale anymore - instead it is offered free with a sync option offered as a subscription. Also there isn't a privacy policy on the website and your data is stored on their cloud servers. Plus the program asks for admin access on your computer. All in all it could be a recipe for disaster.

I had previously heard good things about Leadertask, but that was at least five or six years ago. Doesn’t sound very tempting to me today.

Thanks!

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Way to hide a desktop icon temporarily? on: September 04, 2014, 10:26:54 AM
I installed the trial but it doesn't let me start the 30-day trial period. There's a big dialog box with 3 options and activate the trial is 3rd, but clicking it does nothing. If I try to make a fence, the option appears but then the fence doesn't. Google showed that other people have had this problem too.

That's odd. I thought that happened only if you once had a trial installed in the past. Guess it's a bug then.

Good luck!

Jim
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Way to hide a desktop icon temporarily? on: September 04, 2014, 05:25:06 AM
Or make a fence containing multiple icons which you want to hide, and make that "fence" or area visible as needed. DL a trial and give it a shot.

Jim
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Way to hide a desktop icon temporarily? on: September 04, 2014, 01:25:14 AM
No, you don’t need a rule for each icon. You put the icons you wish to hide in one fence and hide that area. Make it visible when you want and invisible when you want. Works here.
