In that case a cannon might even the score!

Oh, I get it, now. That one was the toughest yet...took a while to figure out.  Very clever, but you could have at least capitalized cannon for me... :P
If we didn't have the Sharks here in the Silicon Valley, I might never have understood this one!

I stand defeated  ;D  by DC's master of word play!!  :Thmbsup:

Shoot! I'll, waiting's no fun...I'd better figure out a different angle.
You can cross that bridge when you come to it.

Do you have a pool?
You could be snookered if the queue for that is too long...

Apparently, I wasn't being very mindful when I posted this rude and reactive response.

Sincere apologies to anyone who may have run across it.

that's actually a really interesting question.. surely there must be a supply for it somewhere.

Here you go.

Energy drinks, rarely. They have to be abused in order to work. I have to slam 3 Red Bulls, one right after the other, then suffer an occasional panic attack.
A Coke is really a treat for me. The only thing better than a Coke is an Icee, that is the best cold drink ever invented.

Growing up, I wasn't allowed any refined sugar. Ever. My mom was a serious heath nut and she'd always lecture me on the sugar/pancreas/insulin/diabetes process. She pretty much scared me out of drinking soda on a regular basis. And diet soda just cannot compare to an ice cold Coke  8).

Yes, you can block friends on Facebook.
Go here.
This FB help page has all the info & instructions.

If that page changes and the link doesn't work, just click help at the bottom right corner of your screen.
Then, click on the 'Friends' link, then there will be another link titled, "Blocking Friends".

HTH  :) !

General Software Discussion / Re: Godin: the end of dumb software
« on: September 28, 2009, 05:37 PM »
What about a simple option that at least lets you specify what you would like the default to be, AM or PM?  It's not "smart" but gets the job done for all parties.  Just a thought ...  :)

Any calendar software I've used, old and new, accepts 1a as 1:00 AM, and so forth.
Don't you think it's easier to type that instead of reminding yourself to check the time every time you make an appointment?
I know someone's already mentioned the benefits of not having default times, but the speedy entry part just occurred to me.
It really is quite fast. Also, since the point of having defaults is so you don't have to think about something in order to do it/get it done, I have to ask: Would you really not think about the meeting time if you had a default time option selected? I know I would always be checking it to make sure I didn't forget to change it.  :-\

Oh, OK - but there's still a free download at http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htm , isn't there?

Stay away from InfoSelect -

colorpath,
I started this thread to neither praise nor bash InfoSelect as a program. The opinions you see here about the program are more like side notes. Really, I just wanted to tell the (2 or 3) other users here (and anyone who comes across the thread) about the recent, unexpected communication between the developer and his users. After many years  of silence, this was big news for InfoSelect and Tornado Notes users. You can read about it on the Y! InfoSelect user group.

I understand that there are people with some negative, often spirited opinions about InfoSelect, but that's not what this thread is about.
There is another Y! group you can join if you'd like to express any negative opinions about InfoSelect. This group was created just for this purpose, so by all means, feel free to check it out.

Thanks.  :)

Tough to deal with Suspicious Minds. 

Hey...no cheating! (That one's already been used.)  :)
You still have hundreds of other choices, though, Miles.

My handwriting needs a lot of work.

This week, I printed tons of labels for my stuff in my storage unit in 72 pt. font.. Very, very helpful, as now everything reads easily & uniformly.
Today, I printed out 20 envelopes with my return address for future mail.
This week, I'll have to print an Outlook calendar to give to someone who doesn't want it sent via email.

I think I get a lot of use out of my printer. It's fun, too  :-[ .

66
Hm, I don't think neither my printer nor my scanner shows up on the list - I always just yank those out anyway :)

 :D OK, question answered. Thanks!

67
Do non-storage devices even show up on safely remove?
Yes. All things USB show up. That's really why I'm asking - with my external drives, I'm happy to wait; with my printer or headset, it's so tedious...

General Software Discussion / -Recklessly- remove hardware (from USB)
« on: September 27, 2009, 04:52 AM »
Hi,
Can someone please tell me what bad things will happen if I just unplug something from the USB, without "Safely remove"ing it?
Simply unplugging external devices/peripherals (a printer, a digital camera & a smartphone) doesn't seem to affect anything.
Does this apply only to certain types of hardware, or what?

Thanks.

Hmm. What odd goings-on on that Yahoo! Info Select User Group!

Very odd; I'm out of the game. It's too weird.

After Sarah's prompting, I made an enquiring post about "Why is Jim Lewis now paying attention to the group" (or words to that effect), and it seems to have been deleted after I (successfully) posted it. It wasn't a negative post either...

 :o I see (or rather, don't see) your removed post. I can't believe they deleted that!
Why don't they just say that it's not up for discussion? Very strange.
Perhaps you should have posted it in the form of a defensive and paranoid inquiry; it would have certainly fit in, and at least you would have probably received an actual response.  :P

It's gotten out of hand over there, IMO.
I'm just going to briefly scan the posts as they hit my inbox, only so I don't miss any worthwhile notices.
When I have time, I'll make filters so I don't get any posts unless they're from miclog and a couple of other users.
It's too bad, that forum used to be very interesting  :( and I really enjoyed helping other users, when I could.

Okay Sarah, I know when I'm outgunned! I must bow to your superior knowledge and leave the building.  :)

Oh, please. Elvis only has hundreds of songs to work with; I'm just trying to keep you on your toes... ;)
But OK, No More  :) .

Checking on someone's net worth? For a date??? How...inelegant.

But the criminal background check has been a long time coming.  :Thmbsup:

I guess it's good to know if your date's actually a convicted felon - not that it stopped me  :D but I'm a little older & wiser now.
The trouble is that here in California, it's tough to find a guy that hasn't been in trouble with the law at least once.
It's the type of crime that makes a difference.
Maybe I've been watching too much news lately, but if I were dating now, I'd be checking every one of my date's criminal backgrounds.
Unless he was really well known.
There's just too much weird stuff going on these days.

Cute video clip, though.  :)

The forum is for now, amusing at best. Hopefully, that will change. We'll see.

OK, we've seen. Bad things over there. I'm so rattled!!! It's frustrating when everything someone writes is just slightly wrong and they won't listen.
I think I just had an argument with someone who likes to argue. I'm starting to wonder if they're teasing me and not really serious about their posts, just trying to get my goat.

It took over an hour to reply to him (correcting him, he didn't read my post but responded to it anyway) and I just ended up deleting the whole thing.
Grrrrr! It's rare, but still...I hate when that happens!

I am testing the new version and submitting reports to miclog but I think I'm quitting today.
I hate having software that has a forum you can't participate in because it's so negative.

If it were like that on DC, I'd have no where to go :( so thanks DCers, I really enjoy reading the different kinds of informative posts here.
Even the youngest members here are soooo much more appropriate, and so much more intelligent than that.

@SKesselman:

...Anyway, I have subscribed to the IS discussion forum (as I have done with the Donation Coder forum) in my Google reader, and will follow the forum with interest. However, I remain skeptical. Just as "two swallows do not a summer make", the IS developer's (Jim D.Lewis) recent appearance on the discussion forum after years of apparent neglect could be just a flash in the pan. Like I said above, "I wonder what triggered it?"...

Well, now that you're in the group, why not just ask Jim Lewis what prompted him to come back?  :)
Now is the time to ask anything you want.  ;)

He's answering many inquiries. From the latest posts, I assume that this is no picnic for him.
He's getting a lot of criticism, yet he's still asking people to articulate their wants and needs for InfoSelect.
Personally, I don't feel that this is probably just a flash in the pan; he has no history of showing up then leaving.
He didn't start that group, so I can't see penalizing him for not directly participating in it.
He just wasn't involved (or didn't make it known he was involved) with his user community, and now he is.
I'm glad he's there now, on the forum - glad for him, his program and for the IS users.

The forum is for now, amusing at best. Hopefully, that will change. We'll see.
