True, but we all can see the need of an occasional fable...
The other day i went looking of a song i enjoyed as a young boy, something that had the words "sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere." A childish song for sure, but as a boy it just uplifted my heart and filled it with joy as i contemplated a blue sky on my uncles backyard swing.

I don't know how people can spend their time watching stories about living dead... must be true stories since these programs are almost everywhere on tv.

Not that i believe in the scientificity of it all but i did enjoy some like:
30. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Helps us to keep things in perspective.

Then again, do you believe in the scientificity of all the information the mainstream medias bash out at us everyday?
29  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Stuff you need to know on: March 10, 2015, 08:01:30 AM
A friend fooled me with the title of this composition.
What did you think it was about?

Stuff you need to know

1. Your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice
 about you. Wear nice shoes.
 
 2. If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there's a 50% chance
 you'll die within the next 3 years.
 
 3. There are at least 6 people in the world who look exactly like
 you. There's a 9% chance that you'll meet one of them in your lifetime.
 
 4. Sleeping without a pillow reduces back pain and keeps your
 spine stronger.
 
 5. A person’s height is determined by their father, and their
 weight is determined by their mother.
 
 6. If a part of your body "falls asleep", You can almost always
 "wake it up" by shaking your head.
 
 7. There are three things the human brain cannot resist noticing
 - food, attractive people and danger.
 
 8. Right-handed people tend to chew food on their right side
 
 9. Putting dry tea bags in gym bags or smelly shoes will absorb
 the unpleasant odor.
 
 10. According to Albert Einstein, if honey bees were to disappear
 from earth, humans would be dead within 4 years.
 
 11. There are so many kinds of apples, that if you ate a new one
 everyday, it would take over 20 years to try them all.
 
 12. You can survive without eating for weeks, but you will only
 live 11 days without sleeping.
 
 13. People who laugh a lot are healthier than those who don’t.
 
 14. Laziness and inactivity kills just as many people as smoking.
 
 15. A human brain has a capacity to store 5 times as much
 information as Wikipedia.
 
 16. Our brain uses the same amount of power as a 10-watt light
 bulb!!

 broccoli, and almonds.
 
 25. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
 
 26. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires,
 issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control.
 Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
 
 27. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner
 like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
 
 28. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

 for everything.

 their journey is all about.
 
 34. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
 
 35. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five
 years, will this matter?'

 for what you accomplished, today .
 
 43. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
 
 Now: Forward this to your friends to help them lead a happier and
 healthier life...
30  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 08:08:15 PM
Just installed StartPage plugin for FARR and it is working fine. Just as good as DDG for sure!
But, not as quick as Bing desktop search app.
It's okay.
31  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 12:13:55 PM
Didn't want to override you on anything Waith808.
I saw various posts but none that were specific that i was thinking of.
Although it is relatively easy to set DDG as search engine on Vivaldi, i haven't tried it on Google Chrome.

DDG is improving (can't say that much for Yahoo).
32  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 08:42:59 AM
We all know how Google made its way to fame and fortune.
We also know that is no longer as "good" as we once thought it was or would be...

How about considering DuckDuckGo as an alternative for better privacy, "open source" as well as a community oriented service? https://duck.co/
33  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 04, 2015, 01:46:18 PM
That was a full course meal Ian!
A web clipper add-on like Evernotes' for Firefox would be a nice addition.

Thanks again!  thumbs up
34  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 03, 2015, 07:58:19 AM
Using the one that came with either Office or Outlook 2013 (both shareware - not expensive enough?).

Update: CliptoOneNote addon does the trick just fine but would expect better from native OneNote clipping or printing options.
35  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 02, 2015, 01:51:29 PM
Do hope our OneNote guru can answer this one.
Is there a way to clip notes from webpage to OneNote and preserve hyperlinks that are present within?
Have printed and emailed entire webpage to ON but neither have active hyperlinks (look just like one "picture").
36  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Pale Moon browser now available on Android on: March 01, 2015, 01:32:48 PM
Palemoon is good on Android although Dolphin and UC browser are excellent too (the later i find fastest)!
Apparently Maxthon is more secure in WiFi environments like the airport.
37  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: February 18, 2015, 12:18:37 PM
Thank you Ian for your generous time and most elaborate response!  Thmbsup
A ctrl+A type hotkey would have been most appropriate. Next version maybe?

Would be nice if Microsoft could integrate a bit better their overall search for ON.
In time...
38  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: February 17, 2015, 02:18:32 PM
It's nice see that OneNote is now a free program.

Do have one hick with this software.
The other day, tried to import a .pdf file but it created separate "pages" for each page instead of one page (as hoped for) but ended up with over 400!
Evidently i went on to delete the OneNote pages but it seems that we can only delete one page at a time.
Fortunately, i was able to transfer the other pages to another "tab" then simply delete the one with all the extra pages.
Wish there was a way to batch delete some pages instead of one at a time.
39  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FireFox = total crap? And Jobs was oh so right about Flash, anyway. NoScript? on: February 16, 2015, 04:07:02 PM
It may be a long shot, but Firemin works for me.
40  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Looking for Livestream alternative on: January 27, 2015, 04:28:58 AM
Never heard of Twitch.tv before. Thank you Deozaan!
After posting here i managed to pickup a few more tips, so i think i should be good now.
41  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Looking for Livestream alternative on: January 25, 2015, 02:57:58 PM
In Arkansas far West where nothing seems to be faster than 3mbps upload at present time,
and Livestream (which requires a minimum 30mbps) is way out of the range...
Was wondering if hosting a non-direct (as opposed to live stream) video file on Dropbox (or other cloud service) would be a viable possibility?
42  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 17, 2015, 07:51:57 PM
Now i understand the situation better.
Thank you Renegade!  Wink

It's not an easy world and reading in between the lines takes a bit of practice.
43  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 17, 2015, 04:00:42 PM
Maybe your right, maybe the 81 are just as "good" as Boy Scouts.
Here's a result from searching Hell's Angels on Google. Nothing positive like free tire repairs or helping an ol' lady cross the street there.
Even Wikipedia can't seem to post a solid, clear, positive and honest portrait of this philanthropic group.
Guess main stream media needs a revamp hé!  tongue
44  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 12, 2015, 12:39:21 PM
Hell's Angels = Boy Scouts - i like that!
Would be similar to saying, Harley Davidson's don't make noise or air pollution.  tongue

About recent mass media interventions...
I really liked it when i first heard (chronologically) from the Mass Media that:
1. The Interview was not going to be shown in theaters.
2. Then Sony was hacked by North Korea.
3. The Interview was going to be shown in selected theaters.
4. U.S. does economic sanctions on N.K.

Talk about a nice cinematographic montage promotion (deception)!
45  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 12, 2015, 07:56:46 AM
As they say in French. "tant qu'il y a des hommes, il y aura des hommeries!"
Or, as an Italian teacher would say "la perfezione non e' di questo mondo!"

There is one "reporter" from the mainstream for whom i have much admiration.
Which i could master the English language as well as he does:
Rex Murphy "I am not Charlie Hebdo"

You know, we may complain or worry about various Islamic terrorist groups, but what are doing about people who belong to our own terrorist groups i.e. Hell's Angels and the like?
46  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 11, 2015, 07:16:59 PM
You sure have the knack to make those "jabs" utterly delicate 40hz.
Guess that's why you have that hurtz after 40 hé!  cheesy
Not news around here though!

Can we say that there's a bunch of politics with solid "hidden" agendas behind those major media groups?
Glenn Beck might have a word on that. What about Kevin Trudeau whose presently doing prison time?

47  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 11, 2015, 08:59:50 AM
PressTV, hum... never heard about them before and never thought i'd be visiting Iran for some news! Cool!  Thmbsup
Just hope the NSA doesn't mind it too much.
You've given a bunch of names hitherto unknown to me.
Then again. I'm not much of a news person.
I know someone who is but all in the wrong arena (CBC, CTV.ca and the likes).
Not sure he would understand James (at least not at first).
The shock treatment would be like what i heard about an Indian (from India of course) who, coming into Canada had to learn to re-express himself in English (his English was to correct for our so-called advanced "culture").
48  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Open Source News anyone ? on: January 10, 2015, 10:32:48 AM
The only one i've come to appreciate after James would be Alex Jones.
Alex reminds me of the days of "Mad Dog Vachon" (wrestler of days gone bye).
He really muffed up in an interview with Pierce Morgan and like Hannity, he is constantly criss-crossing over others with his opinions or comments. But Alex does touch on with some good points.

Do like James best for he simply and constantly digs deep into issues like no other and his open, polite attitude deserves and calls for respect.
49  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Open Source News anyone ? on: January 09, 2015, 08:27:45 PM
Okay, a similar thread was posted at Gizmo's (no catches).
I know there are Corbett fans here but i think James Corbett deserves some real "open" support.
http://www.corbettreport.com/
Not only is he Canadian (hé), but a Canuck living in Japan (of all places!).
So, why would James be better than others like Glenn Beck and the likes?
Well, one, he doesn't step over anybodies toes (Sean Hannity ring a bell?).
He lets his interviewed people talk without criss-crossing over them with his own opinions.


So... where is the FED listed in your telephone book?
50  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: PC Audio Enhancers on: December 22, 2014, 01:54:56 PM
Thanks Curt!

Did search the web in the meantime and found more to have been lookin' for that too, but to no avail.

BTW, did notice a DFX Christmas special expiring soon.
