^ The end of Pime looked like they were angling for a sequel.  Too bad it never happened.  


One thing interesting about time travel is that any technology,especially brought into the past, would have to be self contained.  A cell phone is no good without the supporting towers and phone network etc..  Something like an atomic blaster pistol a la Forbidden Planet may be brought back to the stone age but there'd be no way to recharge it.  Edit:  except to time jump to your blaster charger setup at "home" or wherever.

I should come clean.  There was a problem introduced by latest smf forum update a few days ago; i just fixed it 5 minutes ago and was teasing you guys Thmbsup
So it should be working now.

Let's try it out.




Yup.  It does work.  Mouser I wonder if it would be possible to simply paste images from clipboard instead of using img tag or uploading a file.  It's way more fun.  smiley  (Since you seem to be in the mood for fixing stuff today.)   smiley

"Fetching Preview never loads" - started happening a LOT for me, a couple of weeks back. A real PITA. Firefox - latest ß version.
My workaround is to copy all the comment text I have written, then Ctrl-R to reload the page then reply again, pasting the copied text. It usually (not always) works. I thought it was probably a cache/buffer problem.

Are you using Lazarus?  I haven't had an issue with losing text with it.  I've only run into this a few times.  I forget what steps I took when it happened.  Back button or whatnot I don't remember.  I just remember I didn't lose what I typed.

They might not get your password but they can easily monitor the DNS lookups your system makes.  If the name being looked up is something like supersleezyporn dot com that gives it away.

Much more slick production, of course, but what use is that?  It looks much like any other slick modern made-for-TV film.  People used to snigger at the cheap production of classic Dr. Who, but maintaining any sort of willing suspense of disbelief of a big ask with a show of this kind.

I loved the cheesy special effects of the old Dr. Who.  The idea of the Police Box disguise being "stuck" was a brilliant way to avoid spending money.  Sophisticated SciFi is fine but there's something that makes me laugh when somebody is "mind controlled" by a spinning wheel of cardboard with a spiral painted on it.  I guess that's part of the appeal of Tom Baker.  I had the feeling he was laughing at the chintzy props even as he was taping the show.

I think I liked Eccleston in the new show partly because with high production values the camp thing  doesn't work as well.  He played it more straight ahead beat the bad guys.

Fetching Preview never loads?  I'm just wondering if it's only me seeing this.  No big deal.  I nearly always have to edit to fix typos so preview isn't central to my posting strategy anymore.  smiley

Not all of the Doctor's companions were hot babes.

No.  Really?!?   Grin

I always suspected K9 was lulling The Doctor into a false sense of K9's subservience.  Just biding his time.  Sure enough he ended up with his own show.  I gather it only lasted one season?  Probably the human companion didn't show enough skin to buoy the, er, ratings.  I thought the K9 shows were fun though. I guess I would vote for it as Favorite Spin-off.  (Was there another?  I don't remember.)   smiley

@AH I'm glad to hear the WiFi is improved.  I'm curious to see what happens with Glass on the desktops.  Unfortunately I think it was too difficult to program to garner much support even from the development community.

The other thing I'm watching out for is the "blurry font" issue that seems to be related to W8 and later.  It's hard to pin down the cause or even if it's a Laptop only issue.

The filter input box that comes up may seem annoying but say I want to open a tab file with the default browser.  I just hit Enter twice(assuming you OKd when asked to set the default browser as the leftmost default button.)  For that reason I didn't make an option to bypass it.
64  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Automated web launcher on: October 04, 2014, 06:12:43 AM
There's a macro program included with BrowserBunch, BBSS.exe.  When the tabs you want are in a browser, make the browser the active window anf hit the hotkey.  It saves all the urls to a text file.  You can name it anything with a .txt extension, such as '
tuesdayUrls.txt or whatever.  In W7 and later you can pin BrowserBunch to the Taskbar and pin these text session files to it.  To launch the one you want, right click BrowserBunch Taskbar icon and click the file.

I think there's also a FF extension that saves the addresses of all open tabs to a text file one url per line.  That may also work with BrowserBunch.  I forget the name of the AddOn at the moment.

elevenforums.com taken?  tongue

With MS getting cagey it might be like boxing a bet.  They'll register domains eleven through twenty and still not get a hit.  Maybe they'll call it Picture Windows because everything will be stacked fullscreen programs so they can also run on phones.  smiley  Maybe like DesqView.  Hit a hotkey to switch programs(Alt Tab anyone?)  smiley

Heh.  The Admin on W9 Forums had to scramble to change everything to Windows 10.

They couldn't just do a search and replace on it! What if they accidentally turned every reference to Windows 95 or 98 to Windows 105 or Windows 108? The results could be disastrous! tongue

Heh heh.  That and a bunch of W9x references.  smiley

The difficult part is the requirement to detect any browser launch, then check date and time against your rule set.  It would be much easier to run a program that launched any browser you want with the set of urls.

Note that as far as I know IE still has the bug where it will open multiple urls from the command line in multiple windows even if set to open urls in tabs. To get IE to work correctly the program would have to use the IE ActiveXControl.

I know there are some scripts on ahk forum that use it.  Have you taken a look there?

You can make as many Tab Groups as you want with Tab Grenade

Unfortunately you cannot name the groups.  The Tab Grenade tab shows them with the number of tabs in each and when the tab group was created.  The other minor quibble is if you press the Tab Grenade Button it creates a tab group even if only one tab is showing.  I feel the need to delete this before selecting the tab group I want to open.  Otherwise I end up with a bunch of singletons down the page.

It is simple and fun to use though.  I use it on Cyberfox all the time.

Edit:  If the Tab Groups could be named then of course you could name them when you want to open them.  Not totally automatic but if you know you are going to use a FF based browser anyway it would be pretty close.  Perhaps you should request the author add tab group naming.  It seems a logical enhancement.

@AT Morning Coffee looks interesting also.  I like that single tabs may be added to existing groups.  Tab Grenade basically just gathers the tab set even if a singleton.

The first post has been updated with new link.  Also the Readme.txt has been edited to correct the directions in quick start to use the proper hotkey, shift-F11.

Note that the Check For Update commands etc.. will not be updated since I don't see that I can add anything useful to this design.  The basic function works, to add a line comment to your downloads. At this point I am using a Laptop only.  It's fine for posting in forums, using online programs, but for programming anything more than a few lines or fixing a bug in existing code, it's just too awkward.  Even on a desktop with full sized keyboard I'm only about a 20 wpm guy anyway.

Hopefully some time soon I'll have a desk again at a permanent address so I can get another desktop PC.  I just hope it isn't running Windows 11.  smiley

Heh.  The Admin on W9 Forums had to scramble to change everything to Windows 10.

http://www.tenforums.com/forum.php

These guys typically get the forum going months before a preview release is ready for each new major Windows release.  A good place for latest news,safe/legal download info etc..

And once people are running it, tutorials, system tweaks and of course you may post your issues there for people to try to resolve with you gratis.

Glad the program Lanux linked worked for you.

WinMinimizeAll does the trick as the author of the script I linked was doing the same thing.  The difficulty is the Show Desktop panel apparently can never get the focus and so cannot be the active window.  Probably the way to do it is get mouse position after the click and see if it is over that panel.  Other than that it's just a few lines of code.

I don't know if you can bypass clicking the Show Desktop Button.  But this toggle has already been done on this thread:
http://www.autohotkey.com...%2Bdesktop+%2Bhit+%2Btest

You could just change from a keyboard hotkey to some mouse combination.

I'm on Windows 8.0.  It doesn't have that little panel to show desktop.  With Autohotkey comes a Window Info tool or spy that gives the window class name under the mouse pointer.  If you plug that into this script it may work.

[copy or print]
Sendmode Input
return

#IfWinActive ahk_class "put class name as shown by spy without quotes here"
LButton::#m

Edit:  Whoops!  Yes it does.  I couldn't see it since I made the Taskbar transparent.  Hang on.  I'll try to test the script.

Edit2: I guess it's not that easy.  One has to keep track of the state and restore etc..

I didn't realize when I suggested you post here that you wanted a hotkey substitution.  I was thinking of detecting when the mouse clicks the Show Desktop.  If the hotkey sub is all you need it's an easy one.


Compile or run it using Autohotkey.  You can put a shortcut in StartUp folder to have it start with Windows.

At first, I wondered why this was its own thread instead of in silly humor.  Now... I wonder at why it's still getting debated?  huh  tellme Grin

One could say the thread is cat-ass-trophic.  Replete with half-baked puns.  smiley
