A married woman saved her lover's phone number on her mobile under the name of "Low Battery".
Whenever her lover calls her in her absence, her husband takes the phone and plugs it into the charger.
Give that woman a medal.

Two Thai girls asked me if I'd like to go bed with them; they said it would be just like winning the Lotto!
I agreed, and they were right. We all stripped off, and to my horror, we had six matching balls!

Such an unfair world: When a man talks dirty to a woman it's considered sexual harassment.
When a woman talks dirty to a man, it's about $5 per minute.

Valentine's Day:  Just booked a table for Valentine's Day for me and the wife. Bound to end in tears though; she's lousy at snooker.

If you get an email telling you that you can catch swine flu from tins of ham, then delete it.
It's spam.

They say that s#x is the best form of exercise. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think 2 minutes and 15 seconds every 3 months is going to shift this beer belly.

@wraith808: Oh, I think I see what you mean.
Wouldn't it be a bit too busy on the screen though, if all that info was overlaid onto it? For the purposes of good ergonomics, I mean. Or did you just mean progressively overlaying smaller chunks of reference info and scrolling through those chunks?
I haven't used ROT, so I am unsure as to how it looks in practice.

Thank you Ian for your generous time and most elaborate response!  Thmbsup
A ctrl+A type hotkey would have been most appropriate. Next version maybe?
Would be nice if Microsoft could integrate a bit better their overall search for ON.
In time...

Thanks. I'm always happy to try and help where I think I might be able to.
Ctrl+A works on (for example) the series of PDF pages printed within a OneNote page.
Ctrl+A does not work on the Page Tabs, but it does work on the page tabs within a Page Group (which seems logical, to me).

Selecting (say) 400 contiguous Page Tabs to delete in OneNote is easy. Just click on the uppermost or lowermost page in the page tabs, then scroll to the lowermost or uppermost (respectively ), and click on that whilst holding down the Shift key. That selects them all. Then press Delete.

I have an AutoHotKey macro that pops up and displays the OneNote 2013 Hotkeys and functions.
Here is the pop-up:

I'd be interested in knowing how this could occur. I've never met this problem before, and I can't replicate it now.
Maybe it could be a Copy constraint solely within the browser or an add-on??
34  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Printing to OneNote + multiple page deletes. on: February 18, 2015, 10:16:04 AM
@dantheman:
Multiple page deletes are simple: You can select multiple pages at a time, using the Page tabs (holding down the Shift key to collect a contiguous range of pages, or the Ctrl key to select/deselect pages in a selected range). All the selected page tabs go grey. You then delete them with a single press of the Delete key. That sends just the selected pages to the Trash. They can be recovered from Trash for a while, but Trash will eventually be expunged according to the settings for that.

I seem to recall that copying a PDF file to OneNote 2007 could be done so that all the pages of the PDF file go to one infinitely long page in OneNote (not sure what the limit is) - I had mistakenly sent a 500-page document to OneNote, and it all came onto one page. Maybe I used the Print To OneNote function; I don't recall though.

With MS Office 2013 (OneNote 2013), you can:
  • Print a PDF file to ON (as if it were an installed printer).
  • Insert a Printout of a file.
  • Insert a file as an attachment (Object) or as a Printout.
The file printed automatically goes onto one infinitely long page in ON as a series of images - one image for each page of the PDF document. If you do this, the print images are not OCRed or indexed (even though you may have Make text in images searchable set on by default), and so to get them OCRed and indexed you simply select those page images you want indexed and then right click and select Make text in image searchable. I just did this with a 7-page PDF document to prove it, and it works a treat. I was pretty sure that ON2007 worked in much the same way.

By the way, for Client-based Notebooks, the contents of files inserted as objects are apparently stored in a format peculiar to OneNote, which is not indexed and thus cannot be searched - either by OneNote or WDS (Windows Desktop Search).
For Cloud-based drives (i.e., if the Notebook is in OneDrive), I think the same is true. However, if the Notebook is saved in Sharepoint, I think I read somewhere that all file objects inserted in ON Notebooks can be indexed/searched in/by Sharepoint search.
35  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: OneNote is now free on: February 18, 2015, 09:18:58 AM
@Steven Avery:
The best and most cost-effective way way I have found to move from OneNote 2007 to the 2013 version is to install MS Office under the corporate Home Use programme (PAID $10).
Then:
  • Ensure that ON2013 is installed with a focus on client-based Notebooks.
  • Then migrate (convert) all your ON2007 Notebooks to ON2013 format (this was a trivial exercise).
  • Then, if you want, using ON functionality, move your ON2013 Notebooks to OneDrive. ON does this all automatically and you can forget about it once it has completed.

However, there are two potential drawbacks to the last step:
  • 1. Issues with WDS (Windows Desktop Search): WDS does not search/index OneDrive, so WDS does not index the Cloud-based OneNote Notebook content. However WDS will find a search term in ON cache files, but the search connectors do not take you to the ON Notebook and page where your search term could be found, so all you know is that you will need to open and search all ON Notebooks to find that content. I have experienced this problem myself, and it has made be consider moving the Notebooks back to the client. I haven't made my mind up yet as there are various Pros and Cons to consider.

  • 2. Offline access to Online content: I think that one might at some point be unable to access content in any Cloud-based ON Notebooks when one is offline for an extended period. The local ON cache files will be used where possible, but not all the Notebook content is necessarily replicated on the Client. I have not yet experienced this problem.

The opening post in this discussion thread was edited thus:
Edit 2015-02-18 2238hrs: I was fossicking around today for some stuff that I felt sure had been linked to in this discussion thread, and after mucking about for a while with no success I felt that I and others might be able to save time and benefit from maintaining some kind of index. So, more as an experiment than anything, below is a list of useful links for accessing libraries and archives. I know it will now need maintaining.
Some of these links are from the comments posted in this discussion topic, others are sourced from other areas of DCF and the WWW in general. If you know of any links that should be added to this list, please post them in the comments in this thread, together with a brief description of what they relate to, and I shall add them to the list. (Thanks in advance.)

It was posted at edudemic.com: 5 Places To Find Free Educational eBooks

When you go to that link you get a blank page with the message and no explanation:

I don't know why the post (made by one Katie Lepi) may have been taken down, because it is extremely helpful. (Katie Lepi was apparently an excellent and prolific reporter, but her page at edudemic.com gives a 404 error, so it looks as though all her content may have been "permanently removed"/expunged.)
Never mind, the page in question here is at Wayback, and I have made a full archive copy of it for anyone as wants it.

5 Places To Find Free Educational eBooks
By Katie Lepi on January 26, 2013

Hunting down ebook reading classic literature and important manuscripts may mean more than a quick Google search for many of us. You may turn to paid sources like Amazon or even (the humanity!) turn to printed books in your library. The horror! We kid. We love the library and feature effective ways to use libraries all the time.

So what happens when Google, Amazon, and your local library come up short in your quest for free educational eBooks? Never fear, there are a few critical resources you should know about. From Harvard to Bartleby to the International Children’s Digital Library … there’s plenty of ways to find a quality epub or downloadable book for your classroom or pleasure reading. Here’s some of our favorites:

The Harvard Classics
Some of the most important works of literature are a part of the dozens of volumes available in The Harvard Classics. They were curated by Harvard University president Charles W. Eliot and were published in 1909. They’re available in open format here and here.. An interesting note about The Harvard Classics: President Eliot had originally referred to these works as the “3-foot-shelf” and said that one could “obtain the elements of a liberal education” by spending 15 minutes a day reading from the shelf. Let’s see if he’s right!

Project Gutenberg
Project Gutenberg offers over 40,000 free e-books (free epub books, free kindle books, read online, or download them). They offer books that have been actually published, and the volunteers at Project Gutenberg have digitized and proofread them. You can read them all for free, but if it is something you use regularly, they do ask that you consider donating a bit to their cause.

Bartleby
The go-to source for the classics, Bartleby.com features Gray’s Anatomy, the Harvard Classics (see above), the King James Bible, and just about every major publication you could ever require. The best part of the site is the ease with which you can surface relevant content and sort / filter. You get quality search results with easy download links without all the muckity muck (that’s a technical term) of a Google or Amazon search.

OER Commons
Open Educational Resources (aka OER Commons) boasts more than 40,000, well, resources for teachers. When you first hit the website, you immediately feel like you’re about to do a Google search. But once you get your results, you can see that you can then ‘remix and share’ multiple resources to form some sort of Voltron-eque super-resource. Or, to put it another way, you can create the resource that you want thanks to the benefit of open access to all the resources.

ICDL – International Children’s Digital Library
Just like a brick-and-mortar library, the ICDL feels just like what you’re accustomed to. It lets you become a member, take out books, and do even more. For example, you can read a book (on any device) and translate most of the text, enlarge the text, and navigate with ease. But remember these are children’s books so when you’re given the ability to enlarge the text … that’s something pretty rare. Definitely worth checking out ICDL if you’re a K-12 educator, student, or parent!

Useful OneNote links

Just some notes, following my comments and others', above. Sorry I was in a rush and did not put these in earlier. These are some potentially useful links:
  • 7breaths - occasionally has some good user posts about OneNote.

  • Engineering OneNote Blog - very informative and worth a read, but now closed, with Onetastic (Omer Atay) kind of picking up the threads.

  • MS Office Answers (all OneNote discussions) - potentially informative and useful if you want to see what problems/queries other users are having or need advice about OneNote. A busy forum. Make posts there if there is something you feel you have to offer to help.

  • Office OneNote Gem Add-Ins - Commercial ($PAID) and proprietary add-ins that mostly seem to do what you can probably do with OneTastic macros ($FREE), so I haven't wanted to use any of these add-ins, and cannot really comment. Probably useful for users who haven't got the knowledge or expertise to use Onetastic macros.

  • OneNote Office Blog - mostly product news.

  • Onetastic - I describe it as a "forum" because you can post comments and also upload your own-developed macros to share with other users. There are a few seriously useful OneNote macros or add-ins on this forum/website. The macro language is under ongoing development, and not all the macro commands can necessarily use all of the functionality of OneNote and get the expected result (from my experience of writing some macros).

Worth downloading, yes, but note that it seems to be for the Cloud-only variant.
Worth using? Yes, probably, but as always it would depend on one's requirements.

My requirements necessitate the Client-based (laptop) variant, with sync to the OneNote/OneDrive Cloud.
Whilst I am still not entirely happy with some aspects/functionality of it, it's 80% or more of the way there, and there's nothing else quite like it in the market to meet my requirements otherwise, so I'm using it mightily. It gets better as it gets updated, and the busy Onetastic "forum" for add-ons and macros help to make it incrementally more useful.

At the $10 commercial home use option though, MS Office is a steal, and it includes the OneNote Client and integrates brilliantly with with it. Makes it a no-brainer as far as I am concerned.

Why "Basement" it? It's not religio-political is it? It's simply gone off-topic. Don't move it just for going off-topic.
(Unless it presents or has become a potential public embarrassment to the forum?)

Maybe you could consider moving the people who took the thread off-topic to the basement, together with their individual posts. Temporary banishment. Like a sin-bin. It's been a bit like trolling.
The thread otherwise seemed relatively on-topic until they got started. Maybe they were deliberately trying to get the thread "Basemented"?    tellme

If you think lawyers don't  have hearts, read the best lawyer story of our time:

The Salvation Army realized that it had never received a donation from the city's most successful lawyer.  So a United Way volunteer paid the lawyer a visit at his lavish office.

The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, 'Our research shows that even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you don't give a penny to charity.  Wouldn't you like to give something back to your community through the Sally Ann?'

The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, 'First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?'

Embarrassed, the Sally rep mumbles, 'Uh... no, I didn't know that.'

'Secondly,' says the lawyer, 'did it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?
 
The stricken Sally rep begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again.

'Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sister's husband died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?'
The humiliated Sally rep, completely beaten, says, 'I'm so sorry. I had no idea.'

And the lawyer says, 'So, if I didn't give any money to them, what makes you think I'd give any to you?'
