Do you have any experience with ripper5?  If it does the job you might see if it will work in DosBox.  It's a free 16 bit Dos emulator.

It may be limited as to file size though.

seem ok, as long as it isn't against terms of license.

Cool.  smiley

I guess it would depend on why the policy is blocking it.  It may be that the old MaxThon and the new IE use different ActiveX Controls?  I don't know.  I'm just guessing.

Here's Registry Settings for many of the Group Policy options:

I'm not sure about Windows Seven but in older flavors if I changed the system font to larger than 9 it messed up the dialogs on Property Pages.  To test, right click on a program shortcut, click Properties and try all the tabs.  If everything seems OK then you should be golden.  smiley

btw Windows 8 is missing many customization settings, including this one.  ( Either it's gone or they hid the setting someplace. )

Take a look at MyStyle Plugin on this page:
http://addonsmx.maxthon.cn/en/post/607

Edit: It may only work on MaxThon 2.  I gather from browsing MaxThon skin forum the new MaxThon doesn't allow user-written skins anymore.  More "Cloud" bs.  Sad

If you can find a MaxThon Extension that does this then I suggest Maxhon.  It uses the IE engine and had mutliple tab interface years before IE.  I used it several years ago and found the user-written extensions to be the source of most of the fun.  Since then I have not kept up with MaxThon but I think it is worth a look if IE compatibility is a requirement.

MS pulled that one out of the fire rather nicely. I don't know what they were thinking when they did Win 8 and squandered all the goodwill and credibility W7 earned them.

I had the same feeling.  My cynical side says it's simply churning.  If they put out a new OS then PC makers who preload have to make it available.  Apparently in computing "old" is a much worse description than "broken."

Ok, the registry key I posted was incorrect.  The correct key is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors\Window

I changed it and logged off, then back on.  It didn't seem to have the desired effect in chromium though.  But notepad and EditPad Lite use it.  For what it's worth.  smiley

Hi phitsc,

Funny video. (c:

I believe you have the ability to remove it yourself. If not, you could at least update your post to link to the thread it was already posted in. (c:

I strongly suggest the link be Red and perpendicular(to everything of course.)   smiley
35  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snack Guidelines / Re: IDEA: Program to list possible Windows keys based on partial information on: April 08, 2014, 12:50:16 PM
I'm guessing Windows uses only upper case characters and digits 0 - 9 for each character in the key.  Someone may correct my math but since there are 5 groups of 5 characters that should be equal to 36 to the 25th power, if you had to generate all permutations.

For a partial it would be 36 to the power of each missing character.  So if there were 4 unreadable characters that would be 36 to the 4th power, or 1679616 permutations.  I think MS server would flag you long before you got through 'em all.  smiley

That's just a snow job!

Coming up with a blizzard is tough sledding in Miami.  smiley

I guess it does posses a kind of "what a waste" pathos when a hot chick dies.  Since even chicks are hot for hot chicks.  Wink

But it is strange when I click on the radar to get the current temp here in Miami and they are trying to scare me with talk about killer blizzards.  Somehow I don't feel threatened.  smiley
38  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Dead Hot Chicks Boost Weather Ratings? on: April 06, 2014, 06:38:42 PM
Dead Hot Chicks Boost Weather Ratings?  It would seem like it.  I go to weather radar on Weather.com several times a day as Miami area if quite volatile.  Seems like more often than not there's some news feed about a college age girl dead due to something weather related.  Don't men die in bad weather?

Just seems to be in poor taste somehow.

Edit:  Of course there's a pic of the deceased woman with the story.  I haven't seen a Plain Jane yet.

In the same vein I wrote a TreePadGen program with the idea of making a node for every file in a download folder.  In the right pane you can enter description. It works well with the free TreePadLite.

See included Readme.txt for details.

I'm still trying to find the hats worn by those Czekoslovakian Cool Dudes on SNL.  Easy to score with such sophisticated American accoutrements.
42  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Inverse filter for white windows on: April 05, 2014, 07:16:46 PM
If you set chromium background color to something subdued, but have default white as the window background color in the registry, I believe you will get a bright flash of white before the chromium setting kicks in.  At least that's how I remember it.

I seem to have a knack for interest in fads after the bandwagon has been run out of town.  smiley

Oh, excuse me.  I just saw a great deal on a turtleneck sweater.  smiley

General consensus on Free Boxmaker Software?  I read the threads.  Unfortunately I'm at the Public Library.  They screen out almost all downloads.  Even open source stuff like on SourceForge.net.

So I haven't been able to try QuickBox or the other freebies.  When I get on another network I'll be able to download.  But I'm curious if the enthusiasm for these tools has evaporated or one has risen to the top etc..  smiley

When I used Fractal Flames as wallpaper it made windows white backgrounds seem like glare.  I think you can change the default windows background color using this registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors\Window

set it to decimal RGB values separated by commas.  The default value should be
255,255,255

Unfortunately it doesn't change the Explorer window background color.  But I seem to remember using chromium at the time and it working with that.

A good idea to use ERUNT and/or make a restore point before changing the Registry though.

I think he means the Windows OS registration key...as in the sticker on laptop is faded.  Not the keyboard...

I took "activating windows" as making the window active.  Oh well.

Edit: I would be curious to find out of the server interprets this as a "dictionary attack" and breaks off server contact.  I would be prone to calling Microsoft and explaining the situation before getting too deep into the 1s and 0s.

I'm not familiar with the 5 x 5 keyboard.  But if it generates virtual key codes why not try a program that just echos the key code?

BrowserBunch has a similar purpose.  It comes with a Tray Hotkey called Browser Bunch Session Save.  It's just macro driven.  So it's not smooth.  But the advantage is that BrowserBunch works with most non-IE browsers that accept multiple urls on the command line.

As alternative to Session Save or typing you can drag the current url from the addressbar to an editor such as EditPad Lite that will catch the drop in a text file.

It takes a bit of setup to load your browser buttons.  But once set up it's similar to using BrowserChooser except that it reads a text file with a url per line and opens them all at once.

There's a Readme.txt in the zip with the gory details.

There's a screen shot at the top of this thread:

Hey Stoic Joker, maybe that can be a new measure of speed for thumb drives.

Stoic Joker Not pissed off = fast
Stoic Joker pissed off = acceptable
Stoic Joker jumping on his thumb drive = slow (and broken)


Right.  A really snappy drive would have an NPO rating of 10.  Mediocre would be 6.  smiley
