Lashiec: I use both. I have heard all the warnings about cleaning the registry and I've never been burned so far. I always inspect everything it finds before deleting it, and RegSeeker keeps backups, so it's even safer.

I've seen this in Synaptic's software list, but never bothered to try it. I don't know that I have any apps I need to stay open all the time, and if I do, I usually keep them on an out-of-the-way virtual window.

I just wish Fluxbox's tray/taskbar wasn't so tiny. It'd make trayed items easier to get at if the size was customizable (i've looked, couldn't find a config item for it...).

I've used CCleaner and RegSeeker side-by-side for a while now, and have had no troubles except for one time CCleaner really messed with my firefox's ability to parse CSS  huh

As soon as Beta settles down, I'll definitely upgrade.

Oh, man I remember their ads in some computing magazine WAAAAY back when that had insane one-line programs.

I think your best bet is to find an old 5-1/4 drive and some software that can burn the disk image.
Sorry I can't offer more help...

Don't forget the Linux Documentation Project:
For full-fledged books (html and pdf formats available) especially the Linux Network Administrators guide, if you're looking into networks and servers:
For quick-and-dirty advice on specific subjects:

Another one I like a lot, though it is showing it's age (especially in the chapters about X...) is the mighty Rute Book.
Google's cache of the html version (get it before it's gone):
or the PDF:
or the hardcopy:

Also, a quick-and-dirty tutorial on Using Ubuntu as a file server/internet gateway/etc using the wonderful Webmin to configure and manage it, look here:

Hope this helps!

Gnuwin32's front page has updates from Jan 5, 2008. I guess that's pretty recent.
From the Unxutils page:
In this context, native means the executables do only depend on the Microsoft C-runtime (msvcrt.dll) and not an emulation layer like that provided by Cygwin  tools.
1835  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: VisualWget - Wget for Windows on: January 18, 2008, 03:27:33 PM
Agree- native builds work better.

Myself, I prefer the Gnuwin32 tools, which are built using MinGW.
Unxutils uses the standard msvcrt libraries which makes them even more native, but Gnuwin32 sports more tools (wget among them...) Kiss

The plan for world dominance is going as expected. With the inadvertent help of those dumbasses fine guys at Google, the Spanish Empire will rise again!!

Tinjaw, I agree that it is puzzling that more software hasn't been written for "other" viewpoints. But on the other hand, the Judeo/Christian body of literature has been some of the most scrutinized of any so it is no surprise that such a surfeit of software exists for that.

I think (for now) your solution is best served by finding texts you are interested in, whether in html or plain text, and find a full-featured text viewing/searching software to load it into.
Something that allows full-search indexing, keyword tagging, marginal note-taking and markups for cross-referencing between two or more texts, stuff like that.

This functionality exists for many of the Bible study apps mentioned, it is the texts themselves that are not available because the text must be formatted for the software, which is a time-consuming process to say the least.
If such software (a more generic text indexing/markup/comparison tool) does not exist, I think it would be a fantastic project for someone to start as it would be a great research tool for texts of any persuasion.
Perhaps the discussion should now turn to finding such a software if it exists, and what it should look like if it doesn't.

I don't know, I've seen that happen before with some searches.
It seems rather random...

They're still kinda small so you might shoot the developers an email or hit their forum.

Maybe a little too cute.

Anybody here plan on buying one of these things?

No, it won't replace Google anytime soon, but it's pretty cool anyways...
What makes Pagebull different from other search engines?
Pagebull's sophisticated search process gives you actual screenshots of the search results. Most search engines simply list the site. You have to click on them to find that the site is not quite what you wanted. With Pagebull, you can see the front page, allowing you to sort out the most helpful pages for you. And Pagebull helps you to avoid harmful content, so you can surf the Internet more secure.

1841  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: post problems MB UPGRADE, slow detecting and verifying dmi pool data prob on: January 10, 2008, 12:33:24 PM

Sounds like a misbehaving drive.
EVERY time I've had a MB slow to detect a drive, it was one of the drives dying or dead.
To test, make sure your BIOS disk section is set to auto-detect drives, then disconnect them all (with the power off) and then re-connect one at a time, rebooting each time and see which one is hanging.

Let us know what happens...

Whoa... A little more than you might need, but here it is...

Welcome to the largest freely available archive of online books about religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric on the Internet. The site is dedicated to religious tolerance and scholarship, and has the largest readership of any similar site on the web.

That said, I thank everybody for keeping this on the topic and not a religious soapbox... Mine included.
1843  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Wanted: Electronic/Searchable Holy Books on: January 07, 2008, 10:50:16 AM
Excellent references, all...
Being a Linux user, the Sword project is my only choice for such things and their Java interface is interesting, although not as easy to use.

I would love to have tonnes of footnotes and references available. I would love for a version that contained the texts of all the major religions and would let me compare things like references to the same historical event, compare timelines, etc. If there were footnotes/references to secular texts that cover the same item would be icing on the cake.

For that, my friend, you'd have to study archaeology. Cross-cultural historical cross-referencing is not a pretty thing to dig into, and those who have find the going very difficult, as the existing historical record is fantastically spotty.
I found K.C. Hanson's website to be a nice jumping-off place, as he has links to many other historical archaeology sites and current translations of many ancient records.
Being Catholic, his focus is on the ancient mediterranean (Greece/Rome, Egypt, Middle East) so I didn't find much pointing eastward or westward from there.

Put the plane as high and as far left as it can go. Then take the mouse out of the game and move it around the page to the other side of the screen. Put the mouse back in the game about 2/3 down.

Good Gravy!!


1845  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: C drive space monitor on: January 02, 2008, 12:57:10 PM
OK, it's been ages and I just remembered that mouser (again, ages ago...) asked me to make an "Official" release of this.
Here it is:
DriveAlarm v.0.3

A small program intended to run at startup/logon or any time, really.
Pops up a warning when free drive space goes below a certain percentage or
capacity in Megabytes.

First, extract DriveAlarm to it's own folder in Program Files, and put a shortcut to it on the desktop for easy drive checking any time or in the Startup folder to activate it at Startup and Logon.

The first time it runs, it will make a DriveAlarm.ini file in the folder where it resides.
This will have some first-time run options in it that you can change.

A screenshot of the pop-up message:

back to this site..

this site is a bit boring..

Mouser, I agree. It really isn't much more than a glorified hit counter.
Although some of the cities set up by really busy sites are insane...

I'll keep looking for similar sites, as the premise is nice.
