My guess is they don't bother to add another interface since you can open in a new window or tab, then drag from the addressbar to desktop.  I think there was a Firefox AddOn called DeskCuts or something.

I'm not sure how old it is or if it still works:

So...who owns the shark?

The FBI says it's North Korea.

Yes, and - being under alien (mind) control - they used alien technology to HacK the shark and make it attack the cable.

From the still I thought it was how you made a shot on a really large pool table if you don't have any hands.  Wink

I have absolutely no idea what it means. But I love it!

My only guess would be that zebras can't afford shoes.  And/or they run quietly to avoid alerting predators.  smiley

33  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: QTTabbar (now at version 1024) is once again my favourite on: January 09, 2015, 10:45:30 AM
It's unclear to me:
does it do dual-pane - or are the multiple panes always showing the same location?

Explorer windows get multi-tabbed, is the main feature.  I tried a mod version done by the other guy some time ago.  It seemed stable enough.  But the main thing that gripes me with these single pane multi-tabbed deals is I try to drag a bunch of files to another tab and they disappear into a random subfolder, if there are any, in the target tab.  Then I have to hunt them down.  Not really convenient.  I feel more comfortable with dual pane multi-tabbed.

I downloaded this one and tried to get it going but it seemed to be hosed by the fact I had Classic Shell installed. I could not access the Folder Options down arrow to enable it.  I had a tough time uninstalling both.  So I went back to classic shell since I'm on W8 and I'm used to having it.

@TaoPhoenix I can see that such a clip might be ironic and make a point. But I'm not really out to embarrass them.  They know me as I've been going there every day for some months and allow me small favors.  Plus they are open 363 days a year.  Only closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.  It seems cities these days don't want to maintain public rest rooms.  Those on the street have to depend on the largess of stores and restaurants.  I don't know why it's so difficult to have clean decent public facilities.  When I went to West Palm Beach the day I was evicted there was a public rest room at the AmTrack Station.  There were cameras trained on the entrance.  That and the occasional foray by a security guard or policeman seemed to be sufficient to keep everything ship shape.

Since most of the people working the Publix checkout knew I'm homeless I have to assume the surprise came from the fact that by asking that question it indicated I expected the effort to be something other than PR.  I think it was more like a "what are you nuts?" reaction rather than hostility.

The other thing I don't understand is now and then they get on a kick of asking if you want a bag when you buy stuff.  Like, at the volume they buy that stuff one of those plastic bags must cost them a percent of a cent.  Can they really enhance the bottom line that way?  Maybe it's some PR about avoiding litter or land fill issues.

More frustrating than any PR campaign for me is the lack of any affordable storage for homeless people.  For my needs a locker about double the size of a high school locker would be sufficient.  No matter how clean you or your clothes are, walking around lugging all your possessions marks you as homeless.  Many of the guys who drink and mainly just have a change of clothes and some blankets hide them in a bush someplace.  They figure if it's ripped off they can go to a church or shelter and get replacements.  That doesn't work for me.  People fear catching homelessness from you like it's some contagious ailment rather than the lack of an address.  It's weird.  But fear is not rational.

It would be nice to walk down the street without hearing "Casa" everywhere I go though.

If I had better video the black background might be cool.  But I admit I'm a sucker for transparency/translucency.  I don't mind a fractal flame wallpaper.  But for window elements opaque doesn't grab me.

I remember there was a theme for OS/2 that was so 3D that dialogs were not only beveled, but riveted.  smiley  Funny how styles fluctuate.

Edit:  I've gotten lazy and left icons on my desktop.  ( A W8 Laptop btw.  )

Best Portable Alarm Clock of All Time

On a similar note I had a Panasonic ac/dc am/fm rectangular portable radio.  It took 4 C batteries and was perfect for sticking on a table or window sill.  I had it for about 30 years.  Paid around $20 for it. ( I searched but couldn't find a photo of it.  I don't have it to look at the model number.  ) A set of C batteries would play for a couple of weeks constant use.  They made it a bit heavy but it was good as a storm radio for power out scenarios. Now the closest thing they make has AA batteries and is a total piece of crap.  (  Piece of crap replacement model shown below.  )



Just shows to go you, technology doesn't always improve.  smiley

I found Tempered Glass theme on Deviant Art.  ( Edit : I posted about it a couple months ago but the link in the article was dead.   )  Now there is a version 2 available.  Seems like it must be installed by hand.  Here's the link:

Speaking of donations, often when I check out at Publix they ask me if I wish to donate a dollar to help feed the homeless.  Sometimes I point out they could bypass the bureaucracy and just give me the money, since I am homeless.  The reaction is always pretty sour.  Never even a chuckle.  Sad
41  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Donating to EFF on: January 08, 2015, 11:39:22 AM
I wonder if the number of contributions justifies some kind of filtering software?  Like if the amount is less than 3 times the cost of postage, send an email only?

Or perhaps they have some experience that if a small donation is acknowledged in a classy fashion it often provokes a more generous one in the future?

Just speculating.  smiley

I'm not clear on this term.  Is that where the mystic has an out of body experience, or when the NFL player injures his toe on fake grass?  smiley

Yeah, don't hang around here if you don't—it's either SPLAT or split!

that'd be the present, past, and past participle tenses
