I used it to download all the online HTML help files (on-line manual) of a program I use so I could have a copy to refer to when I am off-line. It was much easier than page by page saves.  Had all 102 files in about 60 seconds. smiley

Thanks for the DownThemAll suggestion.  Works great for my occasional needs.

You might take a look at VueMinder Calendar.
There is a free lite and pro (60 day trial) version.

Link to the comparison page.

The lite will let you print day, week or month calendars.
And either can sync with Google calendar if you would like.

1. standardize the basic remote control protocol (on/off, change channel, volume up/down, basic DVD controls like start pause, fat forward, etc).  Once in place and enough stuff follows it you have the joy of being able to use any remote control for the 99% of what you want.  If you need to program recordings or do picture-in-picture, then you'll have to dig up the remote for the particular unit.  But if you just want to watch something, off you go.  Oh, and when you buy a new universal remote (or need to change the batteries in the one you have), you may never have to bother with programming it.

It's not the the standardization of the remote codes, that would be too easy.
But I went to a Harmony remote the last time after one of the dogs got a hold of the sound system remote.
Even the lower end ones like I got are expensive but by the time you multiply the cost of the individual remotes and hassle of setting them up and keeping track of them... not so bad.  At least that was justification I used to talk myself into it.

Is or will it be possible to have the folder names user defined?  This also looks like an easier way to organize podcasts I've downloaded for later listening.

It's a possibility it's my browser settings but when I click on your web link above I get a 404 not found.

I have been looking for a full fledged Android PIM for some time.  No real luck.  There are have been a number of posts by people on the Android Forum also looking.

DejaOffice has been trying but it seems it works well on some mfg & model phones but not so well on others.  Companionlink is needed to perform a USB sync and there was talk of them coming out with a wireless sync about the time I stopped trying to get DejaOffice to work on my phone. Here is a link to their forum if you'd like to look at it.

The Handbase database app has just recently been released for Android.  I have not used it yet but there have been ex Palm & Pocket PC users on the Android and some other forums that have been waiting patiently for it's release.  Saying this will allow them to use their Android phone more effectively.  May be someone will come up with a PIM using it.

Adding the Handbase forum link.

Thank you for the free offer.

I located the change log page on your site.

Do you have some type of short side by side comparison of the free vs current version to see the differences and advantages a little easier?

258  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Thunderbird as a PIM Hub - questions on: October 10, 2010, 05:45:34 PM
Have you looked at VueMinder Calendar?


I have just started to use it and it seems to have the 4 things you are looking for. The generous discount in the above post is over but there is a free lite version, 60 day trial for the Pro and upgrade programs.  Says it will import & export Outlook files.  Haven't tried it yet.

260  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: ultimate insult from fraudulent ebay seller tries to sell me iPhone 4 on: August 19, 2010, 10:40:59 AM
The thing in my case is I had not set or been asked to pre-set up any security questions they used.  And if I had, I would not have used, or for that matter even thought of using, a 14 year old previous address or year & make of my wife's (joint titled) car.  And I know I've never used either of these two things as a security question anywhere before.  So I'm wondering where & how they had access to the information.
I noticed there are a lot of various topics shown in their Q & A forum.  I'll have to see if I can locate anything there.
On the amount of money that was trying to be accessed, I've read before in some cases if outsiders get access to an account of some type, or many accounts of a number of people, they make relatively small purchases.  Small purchases can slip through easier.  And a bunch of small purchases can add up to more $$ than wiping out one big account.
Anyway, it's always something to be careful of.  In your case I'm hoping it was just a fluke.  I've know two people that have gone through the identity theft process and it took then a long time to clear up.

I signed up with PayPal over the weekend.  Finally had a reason I wanted to use it for.  For now, until I am comfortable with it I signed up using a pre-paid MoneyPak card bought locally instead of a credit card or bank account.
When I set up the account I selected to have PayPal provide me with a verification code via text message to complete the transaction.  You then have to enter the verification code within 60 seconds after you receive it or request a new one.  Seemed simple enough.
I requested one and a message popped up on the computer screen saying that there was a communications problem, try again in a while.  Did this 2 or 3 times with the same pop-up.  It also said I could circumvent the text message verification process by answering some security questions.  I went this route and it was interesting.  There were 3 security questions. As I remember, the 1st asked me some question about some site I had recently had some association with.  None fit so I said none.  But the next two questions are the ones that now make me wonder.  the 2nd question listed three different street addresses and asked if one pertained to me.  Sure enough one was the address I had before I moved here... 14 years ago.  I clicked on it.  The last question was a list of vehicle model and year.  One of which fit...my wife's car.  Clicked on it, I passed the test and the transaction went through.  Not long afterward up popped the 3 different text messages I'd requested with different verification codes.
Based on the two questions having accurate info on me, I'm guessing PayPal has credit report access. Even though I haven't as yet provided them with a bank account, credit card, ssn or any other account info of this type.
Possibly whoever tried to make the purchase on nudone's account, did some type of security question workaround and got lucky with their answers??
I'm not crazy about the questions they asked me and used for a security verification.  The way some credit reports and other types of info can get out or found on the internet these days these are questions & answers that could probably easily be found with the types of crooks that do this type of thing for a living.
Anyone else tried the security questions workaround?

Thanks for taking the time to do these screencasts.  I've only been able to watch #2 so far but it already explained a couple of things I've been wanting to do.  I'll be watching the rest tonight.

In Office 2003 & 2007 you can also replace the quick print button in the toolbar with the print dialog button.  It is under the View>Toolbars>Customize section.  This allows me to select if I want to send it to one of two printers or a PDF creator.
Saves a few keystrokes or mouse clicks.

Can I add a vote for a selectable hide & unhide time in a future version?
The instances this would be helpful to me at least is when I am running a program in full sceen and using the touchpad on my laptop.  When I move the pointer to close the program in full screen I get too close to the side and up pops the launchbar.  The 250ms helps but not always.  Is it possible or reasonable to have separate delays for hide & unhide for those that need it?

267  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 :: Entry Ideas on: May 14, 2010, 09:39:33 AM

I'm not sure if this would fit NANY 2011 but I'll throw it out for review.

As a recent forced convert to an Android smartphone(?) there is a need for a program/app that will easily allow someone to access their Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks, journal, etc.  There are postings on a number of Android related forums looking for the same thing.  At least in my case this wouldn't necessarily and would prefer it not happening "in the cloud."  Via a USB cable is fine.  There is a Google sync app but it only does basic contact & calendar sync.  There is a 3rd party program but it will only work if you are on an exchange server. 

That is the basics.  I can point anyone to some of the forums or provide suggestions if it would help.

I came across the following.  Haven't used or downloaded it.

Also try a google search for 'retro games' sites.  The other day I was looking to see if there were any PC pinball type games still around and didn't realize how many retro gaming sites and forums there are for the older games.  I do remember seeing references to jigsaw puzzles on some of them.  Hope this helps.

I like this idea but how large is the box.  Didn't see anything on the site.  I did see a recommendation of 1 per cat +1.  With 3 cats it may not be as economical for us???  Also having visions of the newest addition playing hockey through the house with the pellets.  The user comments on the other retailers site links were also very favorable.

Very nice and easy to use.  Easier than setting up a spreadsheet for the same basic needs.  I like that you included the drop-down calendar to choose other dates.
This could be adapted to other uses like cranioscopical has.  Anything a person would like to keep a simple record of the price of something.  Even a simple check register.

A couple of possible things to consider for future versions:
Ability to change the header.  Someone may want it to say "Check Register" for instance.
And a line or two in the header to add a person's name, project, etc.  Like your robotics or drama expenses.  Each can be saved as a separate file but when printed you can also see at a glance what group they are.

Thanks for adding the regular printer function so quickly.  Works great. Used it with a pdf printer and works fine also.

Good Job.  thumbs up

I had the same occur to me on my laptop a while back.  Others members were helpful in my old post here:


It was a hard drive getting ready to fail.  Replaced it and all has been well since.

Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I will check them out.  I had even commented on BenuBird in the thread tomos references.  So much for MY memory.
273  Special User Sections / What's the Best? / PDF Cataloger - Any Suggestions on: December 22, 2009, 09:53:55 AM

Over time I have collected or created a number of PDF's.  Work and non-work related, each in a variety of categories.  I try to set-up and keep each in it's own category folder.  After a while I still end up looking through the different folders, sometimes drives, for a PDF I know I've saved.
Anyone know of an app that will allow me to catalog PDF's? Set up titles, keywords or tags, etc for each for easier retrieval.  I am using PDFCreator and Foxit Reader at present.  I have tried a variety of search phrases on DC and web for a PDF catalog and nothing so far.  Am I missing something obvious?  Thx.
