I haven't messed around much with policies. But I do have a link with some Registry Tweaks for those who have a Windows version lacking a group polocy editor.

Don't ask me how to use it.  I saw it mentioned and it looked like a good link to save.  smiley

But now? Forget it! I'll just have to use one of these.

Hmm, I wonder if there's such a thing as a consumer model cafe con leche machine?  That's the only coffee I like to drink now.  The machines the restaurants use have an espresso coffee maker with a siphon that heats the milk.  They make each cup individually.

You could just use a flavored bean.  But I guess for home use you just make an espresso then heat milk in the microwave or on the stove and add it to taste.  Many Spanish people like it very sweet.  So if you try it make sure to tell the person making it "no sugar" or they're likely to dump a heaping teaspoon into the little metal carafe that catches the coffee.  Then add your own sugar to taste.  I find it great with no sugar at all.  The only factor being the proportion of milk and coffee.  There's no need to use cream since using a lot of milk doesn't chill the coffee.  Buy good beans instead of cream.  smiley

What does "accidental execution" mean exactly?

I don't understand what you are trying t accomplish.

Here's a bug list thread on Windows 10 Forums.

One on the list.. if you expand the Taskbar such as making it double height, after logoff or reboot it goes back to the default single height.  Sad

Edit:  I'm running it in VMPlayer.  Drag and drop files from the host OS to W10 guest is a bit flaky.  Also downloads caan be incredibly slow.  Whereas W7 32 and 64 bit Guest OS the downloads and drag and drop copy seem normal.

I tried to set up W10 English x64 but it kept hanging 50% into Configuring Devices.  The 32 bit went on fine.  But installing VMware Tools I had to resort to D:\setup.exe from the Run line after I was logged in.

From what Big Muscle says, the Glass is likely to be limited as it was on W8.  Unless the customization aficionados can provoke some improvement from MS.

Edit2:  The other wrinkle I didn't like, even when logged into the built in administrator account, the dropdown to change Windows Update setting is grayed out.  For now I just disabled the service.

Taxing air has already been proposed...

I wish I could remember the name of the stand-up comic.  One of his jokes was about being behind on his utilities, so they shut him off.. including air.  He acts like he's leaning against a lamp post spare changing.  All out of breath he says "man, could you ahh ahh ahh, spare some change for some air?"  
The audience tried to laugh big because they thought it was funny.  But they were behind on their air bills.  smiley

56  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DRM in your coffee maker, to stop you from brewing unlicensed coffees on: October 12, 2014, 09:52:58 AM
The next step is the coffee mug.  There will be something nasty in the DRM coffee(like paraquat in pot) that will only be neutralized by drinking it from the DRM Mug.  Of course you can only drink your coffee at home.  If you get in your car the mug will no longer ameliorate the foul tasting ingredient.  (Unless you purchase the mobile licensing rider.)

Metering the air isn't far off I'm afraid.  smiley

Glad it looks useful to you.   Thmbsup
58  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Launch everything within a folder on: October 12, 2014, 06:44:58 AM
When you say "Launch all urls contained in folder or subfolders" do you mean files with .url extension?  If so you can recursively copy every file in a folder tree to another folder using rcopy.  If you copy them to an empty folder named URLS under UrlPack(which is created the first time you run UrlPack,) then you can use UrlPack to launch them all.

You may download both from http://milesaheadsoftware.tk/

Please read the readme.txt files included in the downloads for usage.

As example of rcopy command line, make sure rcopy is in a folder in your Path.  CD to the top of the folder tree with the urls in a command prompt.  Assuming the URLS folder is in C:\Utils\UrlPack\URLS
rcopy *.url C:\Utils\UrlPack\URLS

Edit:  Using a batch file you could delete all *.url files in the URLS folder, run rcopy then run UrlPack.  UlPack is single instance so it shouldn't matter if it is already running.

You could pass the root folder to the batch file and put a shortcut in SendTo.  Then you could just right click the folder and run your batch from SendTo menu.

Edit2:  Just use "%1" in the batch file to substitute the source folder path.

I'm not sure how the program would work.  But I have a couple of suggestions to do with the issue.  If your friend uses Firefox or chrome browser get him to use Privacy Badger AddOn.  I haven't tried the chrome one.  But for FF you just install it and go with the defaults. No options to set.

Every day when I scanned with SuperAntiSpyware I would have 52 or 53 tracking cookies.  After badger I have zero.

The other thing is ToolWiz TimeFreeze.  It is free.  Set it to start disabled but running when Windows starts.  That way you can turn it on manually from the tray icon and you don't have to reboot to turn it off.  It uses shadowing to redirect disk writes away from the system partition.

If you want to actually download something just save to another disk or partition.

The TimeFreeze I did notice it running just slightly.  But badger you don't feel at all.  It just filters out cookies the site doesn't need to run without you having to do anything.  No clicking allow this or that.  Automatic.

With only one occurrence of each character it may be feasible.  But allowing repetitions I'd have to ask someone into advanced mathematics the possible permutations.  I don't think it's a job for scripting.  Perhaps a computer language for mathematical combination generation(I have no clue what language that is though.   smiley

^ 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.
74  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
