It says on Technet I have to get W 8.1 to install PS 4.0 thumb down

This Laptop often will not complete a restore point.  Never mind doing updates.  I'll use some other method.  I never like PS anyway.  smiley

Edit: got it to stop giving an error.  But when I run the script it just comes back to the prompt.  No busy cursor, no output no nothing.

Given what @Cocoa has just gone through with my Powershell script here, it may pay to check what version you're running and update if necessary.

To check the version, open a Powershell and enter: $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

You should get 4.0 if you're running the latest.

I get 3.0.-1.-1

First time I ever saw negative build numbers?

I could write a program by the time I can figure out how to turn this thing on.  I guess that's why I've never used Powershell.  The enable command line never does.

Edit: got it to stop giving an error.  But when I run the script it just comes back to the prompt.  No busy cursor, no output no nothing.

To get the total memory of a multi-process you can use a little PowerShell script


Thanks for the script and the tip.    Thmbsup

There are not company identifiers.  It's not a company.  It's just personal sites that I've registered.

In that case I would agree with you.  Especially after having my free domain yanked without consulting me.  It is really a paranoid world these days.  If you subject your code to 57 virus scanners and get 2 red flags and 55 green ones, nobody says "you got 55 green flags out of 57."  They say "you got 2 red flags."  It's retahded as we used to say in Boston.  smiley

Oh FFS! ...The icon for their "All New" MS Edge browser, is a $^%#& Blue 'E'!!?! Seriously??!!??

I don't doubt they changed the name from Spartan to Edge just so they could use a morphed blue E.  After all, there were probably hundreds of variations of blue Es just lying around gathering dust.  smiley

In the WHOIS and web searches, my address does not come up, and neither does my name.  The privacy concern is the one that comes up.  The only way it is even associated is if you did not do so at the time of registration it hit the internet, so is saved if you know how to look for it, or if you, as you said, registered as a company, which is not my concern.

I understand. But I suggest searching with the regular search engines if there are any company identifiers on your site.  I guess the guys at ICCAN may be too lazy to use more than a whois search.  But once the state and name of your LLC are out there it is a matter of public record if anyone wants to take the time to look for it, the contact info of the manager/agent.  For a few dollars it may be worth it I suppose.
34  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Save Domain Privacy on: June 30, 2015, 10:15:29 AM
I noticed this change too when I just registered a new domain.  I didn't shell out the extra bucks for the fake WHOIS info this time around.  Not only that but if you registered a company and you are the registered manager such as for an LLC, the stuff is coming up in web search anyway.  Anyone knows the name of the LLC then very likely the search engine is going to spit out your street address and phone number.

Yet another reason I stopped shelling out for company names just so I could shell out more to file annual reports.  I suppose if you have a company making real money you have to.  But people don't even have to go to the government web site to search out the LLC manager's contact info.  It just comes up.

Time to move to a gated community or dig a moat around the house.  smiley

I would take a look at RichCopy

It was written by a Microsoft Employee so it likely has rules or filters xcopy and robocopy do not.

I don't get it. What's a mom stick? huh

A parody of those stupid, useless but expensive products that companies try to convince first time moms that they need to buy, otherwise their kid will end up all screwed up.

Kind of like this one. That's a "Mom Stick", right there.

All those "learn while you sleep" deals use the gimjmick above.

Like optical media perhaps smiley

HD don't skip across the pond as well.  Those 3 1/2"ers make a big splash.  smiley
39  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: when Google fails..DC! Cut and paste text adding double carriage return option on: June 29, 2015, 01:17:46 PM
Or even better and simpler

[copy or print]
SendMode Input
return

^+v::
  Send ^v{Enter 2}
return
40  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: when Google fails..DC! Cut and paste text adding double carriage return option on: June 29, 2015, 01:05:34 PM
I think it would be simple in ahk

[copy or print]
SendMode Input
return

^+v::
  SendRaw %clipboard%
  Send {Enter 2}
return

You can change control shift v to another hotkey

Edit:  also you could test the clipboard only has text.  But if you just copied to clipboard you can forgo the safety checks.  smiley

Anyway.  I remember a few years ago, finding a script that someone had already written that does autocorrects.

The other tough thing is a free grammar checker that doesn't crash the editor you are using it in. I tried Ginger and a couple of others.  Nothing really amazed me.  It seemed the better the program handled the grammar the more unstable it was.  Trying to brush up with online lessons is discouraging.  So many exceptions and bizarre rules.  I don't remember it being that complex when I was in grammar school.  smiley
42  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Panda Free Antivirus 2015 anyone using? on: June 29, 2015, 12:34:39 PM
There is a free edition ???  Do you have by chance a link at hand ?  Thanks.

Sure thing.  smiley

http://www.pandasecurity....solutions/free-antivirus/

Edit: I think the installer wants to change your browser home page and some other option.  But according to the PcMag article the options can be deselected.

I'm switching a friend on an older box over to Linux. Tired of trying to make W7 work speedily. I've got Puppy Bang on it now, and it's very impressive for speed. I might switch to Lubundu though, for the sake of a smoother ride.

I'm not sure what distro I would use.  But it would be Debian based.  I always struggled installing programs back in the RedHat 6.x days.  When I got Mandrake 9.1 it made life so much easier.  Advanced Package Tool was an order of magnitude improvement on RPM. Perhaps not totally RPM's fault.  I think on the APT side there was much more agreement what directories stuff should go in.
44  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS on Linux on: June 29, 2015, 10:17:13 AM

Heh.  I hate to admit I've forgotten more about Linux that I remember.  It has been quite a while since I did more than install and take a look in a VM.  smiley
45  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS on Linux on: June 29, 2015, 10:01:11 AM
Hey Miles. Funny coincidence, but one of the references to tech-saavy Windows guys I was thinking of was the fascinating thread over at SF which you participated in, which I'm reading right now.

Got a link?  smiley
46  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Panda Free Antivirus 2015 anyone using? on: June 29, 2015, 09:52:06 AM
Discount codes ?

I was looking at the Free edition.  I haven't noticed any giveaways lately.
Although in the PC Mag article the free one is rated higher than some of the paid av programs.
47  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 10 Announced on: June 29, 2015, 05:44:34 AM
If anything it will likely require some fancy computin' to avoid the upgrade.  If you are online the thing will keep trying to worm its way into your system.  I don't like the idea of automatic updates that cannot be disabled.  My Laptop cannot even run a Restore Point never mind successfully going through a string of updates.  Plus the fact the "defective" update could easily have someone's IP on it.

It may be time to diddy bop over to Linux once I squeeze all the life out of W7.

I guess they are right.  This is the last version of Windows.
48  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ahem . . . has your antivirus program been compromised by GCHQ and NSA? on: June 29, 2015, 05:37:58 AM
Heh.  With that packaging the brand should be changed from Durex to Duress. 

Err... rebranding like that is pretty hard. And forcing people to take it is, well, just rapacious. Is the company up for it? It may just be a limp proposition.

Such comments may be a bit premature.
49  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The end of the hard disk on: June 29, 2015, 05:34:47 AM
They will probably keep making spinners in plants that already exist like audio cassettes.  It will become a niche market.
50  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: AutoHotKey text replacement question on: June 28, 2015, 09:05:41 AM
@kyrathaba: If you're using Autohotkey to develop the auto-correct script, you can look up Hotstrings.


for starters, you can use something like this below though it is not accurate due to examples such as "an umbrella" vs. "a university".


Also "a hour"
