I've tried Dolphin HD once but found it slow compared to the stock browser.

Just tried Dolphin and I like it better than the stock browser, a lot easier to use, speed is about the same - thanks for mentioning it  Thmbsup
Trying out Dolphin recently too and have been finding its tab-related behavior preferable to the default Browser (nice to be able to switch tabs quickly with the volume hardware keys too).

A number of applications seem to use F11 for full-screen mode (e.g. IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, jEdit, SpeedCrunch, VLC)...it seems like it might be developing into a kind of convention.

FWIW, to use things like System.out.printf, String.format, and friends, I had more luck with beanshell2 than with ordinary beanshell:

http://code.google.com/p/beanshell2/

[copy or print]
System.out.printf("num is %.2f\n", Math.PI);
System.out.print(String.format("%.2f", Math.PI));

May be it makes more sense to learn the printf format strings as they are used in other programming languages too...

I think the single 0 may be normal behavior for the values in question.  If you want two 0s, may be using something like DecimalFormat will work.

I pasted the following into beanshell (w/ Capture System in/out/err chosen via the File menu):

Quote
import java.text.*;

double arg2 = 50000.00;
String pattern = "###.00";
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat(pattern);
System.out.println(arg2 + " " + pattern + " " + df.format(arg2));

The result was:

Quote
50000.0 ###.00 50000.00

How does that seem?

there is no current way to do it, but it could be added pretty easily.
Thanks.  Sounds promising smiley

a question is -- how do these apps want multiple files to be specified? as additional commandline arguments?
I believe so -- for the applications listed in the OP, I think it's just:

[copy or print]
exename filename1 filename2 ... filenamen

It would also be nice to be able to work with things like HashMyFiles, where what's necessary is:

[copy or print]
exename /files filename1 filename2 ... filenamen

1512  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Dropping Multiple "Documents" On To A Single Dock Item on: April 17, 2011, 12:32:13 AM
I use some applications which are able to open multiple "documents" that are simultaneously dropped on to their corresponding executables [1].  I haven't succeeded in getting LBC dock items to work this way though - although dropping a single document does seem to work as expected.  Is it already possible?


[1] Some example applications: ReNamer, VirusTotalUpload2, Audacity, WinMerge, GIMP, Notepad++

If it happens again, perhaps folks who can reproduce the problem can capture some of the sessions using something like Wireshark...

Seems like it came out fine smiley

FWIW, wrapping in a code tag seems to provide some degree of protection:

1515  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Universe Within - very cool flash image zooms from galaxy to atoms on: April 14, 2011, 05:46:16 PM
FWIW, the following sort of thing gave a kind of full-screen experience here:

  • View the content in a browser that is supported by VideoCacheView (or use DownloadHelper for FF, etc.)
  • Save the flash content appropriately - I ended up with a .swf file
  • If not already running, start a browser with full-screen capability (e.g. via F11 in IE, FF)
  • Drag the .swf file into said browser instance
  • Invoke the full-screen capability

No ideas regarding the improved graphics -- if wearing glasses or contacts, try removing them?

Out of curiosity would ecaradec's swiffout work for this?

I found the speaker of "Who Cares About IPv6" entertaining (the preface to the main talk was fun too).

(Found via Ehtyar's link to "IPv6: No Longer Optional".)

Hope it turns out to be helpful smiley

BTW, I didn't know how to set the keyboard focus to the search field (not sure of terminology here):

[attachthumb=1]

Quite by accident I found the Tab key seems to do it...still haven't found relevant docs for that.  Any one seen that documented any where?

1522  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Mp3 split program that allows for multiple cut-points before execution? on: April 14, 2011, 04:54:02 AM
I think I'd remember what to do with Audacity, but I imagine it would take a fair bit longer to finish because of the exporting to mp3...
For comparison, I tried Audacity's procedure.

It definitely feels like it takes longer (importing and exporting anyway), and I'm not convinced now that I'd remember how to carry the steps out in the future  embarassed

...and now for some suckiness:

  • If no audio is selected, cannot choose Analyze -> Silence Finder...seems like with no selection, the application should default to assuming the whole track is intended as a target
  • The number of "silences" detected does not appear to be reported, neither a total, nor during detection...
  • Try cancelling "Export Multiple"...you'll have to indicate this a number times equal to the number of tracks Sad
  • Audacity steals focus during "Export Multiple"...guess how many times...this is repeatedly annoying especially because if you happen to be typing elsewhere not only are you interrupted, you may accidentally cancel one of the exports...
  • Previous values for the "Export Multiple" dialog do not appear to be saved
  • It wasn't obvious to me how to move a cursor in the audio track to match the currently selected label (Alt+Left Click)
  • It wasn't obvious how to navigate among the labels (Tab, Shift+Tab)
  • Procedure for removing a label was unintuitive for me - create a selection covering the target label in the label track and choose Edit -> Silence.

This was with Audacity 1.2.6...

In 1.3.13 there appear to be some improvements:

  • With no audio selection, "Silence Finder..." can be chosen and it applies to the whole audio track.
  • "Elapsed Time" appears mentioned in various dialogs...but if I don't happen to be looking at the screen shortly before the dialog disppears, I'm not sure whether I can learn how long the last operation took...
  • "Export Multiple" can be stopped without repeated button presses (I believe via the Cancel button, not the new Stop button).
  • Most values for the "Export Multiple" dialog appear to be saved -- could be wrong but it looked like one checkbox value wasn't
  • The cursor for the audio track follows the currently selected label.

Removing a label seems to have changed.  From the "Removing labels" section of "Label Tracks":

Quote
To remove labels without affecting other labels: Single-click in the text of an individual label, then press the <Delete> or <Backspace> key (as appropriate) on your keyboard until the text is removed. Once the label is empty of text, press <Delete> or <Backspace> once more to delete the label. You can also remove one or more labels without affecting other labels by selecting any region extending over (or at least touching) the label edges(s), then choose Edit > Split Cut.

(Actually, learned via a YouTube video: Audacity 1.3.12 Beta - Adding and REMOVING labels.)

Then again, who enjoyed, for example, the transition from the imperial to the metric measuring system? Nothing weighed any more or less in the end, yet no one who's made the adjustment will claim that imperial was better (and your kids certainly appreciate it).
lol

In the various places I've lived, it's been one of:

1. We still use non-metric
2. We use metric and something else together

I either want to put in part of a name and see the number(s) I need to call them (Home, Work, Mobile) or part of a number and see the person associated with that number, or part of an address, etc.
I wonder if what's mentioned at the following could be tweaked to be of any help:
