101  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: A NAS server for my home on: December 07, 2010, 03:15:15 AM
Thank you all for your input.

I prefer the idea of a having my own harddrives solution rather than the idea of PogoPlug (but isn't that a cunning solution?).

Another consideration I have is power consumption, I don't want to have something that chews up power!

The next problem I have is how to convince my wife that I need to buy one   Wink
102  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / A NAS server for my home on: December 06, 2010, 06:47:59 AM

I was thinking of buying a NAS for at home but I've no experience with them and I'm looking for advice.

I'll give you some background on my needs:

I have a video, music and photograph collection that I would like to be able to share at home with my family (2 PCs,  three laptops and a smartphone).  I'd also like to be able to access the NAS from the internet (read/write).  I don't have eSATA or USB 3.0.

Ideally I'd like one that has 2GB+ storage.  ON my first search I came across this product from Seagate:

If anybody has advice of what to buy (or look out for), I'd appreciate it.

103 Software / Screenshot Captor / Whitespace around images with added borders on: October 20, 2010, 07:59:39 AM
If I add a border to an image it seems to add a lot of "whitespace" around the image.  Could this be made a bit more lean?  I have attached an image of my preferences and added a border to show the excess space (in particular the left and top of the image).

I also discovered that when I had the preferences screen open and clicked Capture-> Capture Image of Screenshot Window, beneath the name field at the bottom of the main screenshot capture screen, I got details relating to an Internet session I had open. Even after I had completely closed Internet Explorer and tried the same thing again, the same details are being recorded.  Having said that I don't really use that field so it's not much of an issue for me - just an observation.

A work around like that will do me just fine until you find the time to fix it - thanks.
105 Software / Screenshot Captor / Splicing problem? on: October 14, 2010, 04:32:28 AM
Firstly, let me start with saying the newly added splice functionality is great and I use it more than I thought I would have use for!

However, if you highlight an area and subsequently splice the image to remove part of it, the highlight object stays the original size. I'm not sure if this is by design or an oversight?
106 Software / Screenshot Captor / Possible issue with Expand Canvas to Fit Objects on: October 14, 2010, 03:46:01 AM

If I take a screenshot and add a highlight around say the very bottom of the screenshot, click Expand Canvas to Fit Objects, I still loose some detail of the surrounding border of the highlighted area where it reaches the left, bottom and right side of the screenshot.

I have attached screenshots showing the issue, the orginal image, how the image looks before I expand the canvas and then after I expand the canvas.


107  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Two broadband connections at the same time? on: October 06, 2010, 08:24:42 AM

I have 2 broadband connections in my house (both 2MB download speeds).  One is wired directly into my main PC and the other is available via a wireless router (it's mainly for online gaming).

The questions is can I use both at the same time and if so how?

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question!

108 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Highlighting rectangle on: September 03, 2010, 02:13:37 AM
Yes I like this suggestion, it looks like a much better implementation of highlighting.
109 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Right click context menu not working on: September 03, 2010, 02:10:23 AM

Is there anything else I can do to try and get the right click contect menu working?


110 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Right click context menu not working on: August 20, 2010, 03:18:52 PM
I just installed it (v 1.113.01) on my home PC running Windows 7 and and the right click context menu works just fine!
111 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Right click context menu not working on: August 20, 2010, 03:06:04 PM
It happens at root level and all other levels.
112 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Right click context menu not working on: August 20, 2010, 09:33:14 AM
I'm using version 1.113.01 from 5th August.
113 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Right click context menu not working on: August 20, 2010, 08:49:23 AM
Hi, I'm using XP and I have attached a screenshot of an example of my problem.  If you look at the highlighted 'Test.txt' and if I right click on it, I would expect to get the options such as Open (or Open With), Copy, Delete, Rename... but all it does when I right click is open it in the default editor I use.

I'll try this at home on Windows 7 and see how it behaves.
114 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Right click context menu not working on: August 20, 2010, 05:24:37 AM
Hi Mouser,

Let me start of by thanking you for the screen casts for Launchbar Commander and I'm now busy experimenting with the various options.

My problem is, I can't get the right click context menu to work on any of the contents in my folders or menus, instead of getting the standard right click options it just opens the item. What am I doing wrong?

Additionally, if I use the option to display the contents of a folder, file names beginning with an underscore are at the end, whereas I would have expected them to be at the beginning.  Other applications/utilities like Excel, Directory Opus, File Manager all sort those names with an underscore to the start.

115 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: How to launch iTunes from LCB? on: July 28, 2010, 06:44:13 AM
Well you learn something new everyday.  Your suggestion about the drag 'n drop just solved a problem I had for a few months with trying to get Oracle Enterprise Manager to launch!

116 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Error when closing Launchbar Commander after a change on: June 23, 2010, 07:22:36 AM
I've sent you the file.  Running the maintenance options did indeed stop the error - thanks.
117 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Error when closing Launchbar Commander after a change on: June 23, 2010, 02:03:12 AM

After I make a change to Launchbar Commander (v 1.112.01), I click the save button and if I click the X button on the top right of the screen I get an error (see below).  So please excuse my ignorance, but how do I close the preferences so that LB returns back to the system tray?

It would also be nice to see the busy mousepointer when saving.


118 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor Splice Tool on: June 03, 2010, 05:15:31 AM
Mouser, I've just tried out the splicing and it works really well.

Keep up the good work.

119 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: New option for after making a selection on: May 21, 2010, 05:12:56 AM
I feel stupid now for such an obvious method  embarassed

Thanks for that!
120 Software / Screenshot Captor / New option for after making a selection on: May 21, 2010, 04:56:42 AM
Hi Mouser,

I find myself in need of a new option after making a selection in an existing image.  Can you please add an option to copy the current selection to the clipboard?

At the moment I make the selection, click File --> Create New File From Region, then click on the new image, select it and copy it to the clipboard.

I have taken a large number of screenshots that I need to this on and it would be faster to just copy the selection to clipboard.  In case you are wondering I don't want to 'destroy' the original images.

121 Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: LATEST LaunchBar Commander VERSION INFO THREAD - v1.111.01 - Apr 15, 2010 on: April 15, 2010, 02:41:51 AM
Hi Mouser,

Your main LaunchBar download page only has a link to version 1.10.01 or am I going (more) crazy?


122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Advice of Media Player/Center on: February 17, 2010, 05:34:13 AM
I've heard good things about the Acer Revo 3610 so this is currently top of my list.  From reviews it seems to be able to handle 1080P without much trouble.

For those who are interested, take a look at this Acer Revo 3610 review.
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Advice of Media Player/Center on: February 16, 2010, 09:03:41 AM
Hi all,

I'm thinking of getting a Media Player/Center and I'd like the following capabilities (I'm a little unsure of some terminology), but keeping the price to < €400.

HD enabled
Play all the latest video/music formats
Ability to stream content from web sites
Wireless streaming
It can be just one unit or the storage can be separate

I was thinking of something like the Iomega ScreenPlay Director:

Iomega Screenplay Director

Do any of you have experience with Media Players/Centres as I'd appreciate your input before I purchase.

Many thanks.

That seems like a sensible suggestion  thumbs up
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 7 Family Pack Upgrade on: December 08, 2009, 06:45:14 AM
Well keeping my fingers crossed didn't help.

Does anyone know of where they still have copies of Windows 7 Family Pack Upgrade available (for delivery to US)?
