I've got the distinct feeling that Atwood & co. had an understanding that Gruber was pretty much a capital dick before they did much, and tried to deal with it as nicely as possible. But, that's just my own impression. I could be off base there.

The Possession of Michael King

[attachimg=#]

If you're into horror, and supernatural horror, this is a fairly decent one. It's not the best out there, but it's still worth a watch. Horror is a hard genre to get down right. It's probably one of the most difficult. This film does a good job of balancing everything all the way around.

The tricky bit is to also be able to play a still (Tif, JPeg .....) after a video for either a fixed time or be triggered manually to then play the next video in the playlist which will then go to a still again and so on. 

I think you'll be best off creating a motion JPEG or short video clip with the stills.

And have a keypress to go to black if required.

That seems like a bit much to ask of a video player. Why would anyone ever need that?

My favourite video player is ALShow (used on my 3rd monitor mostly). It has a similar function for that (press ESC), but it minimizes itself to the taskbar notification area (system tray).

I think you need to rethink how the presentation will work. Most likely you will need human interaction there, especially for the stills.

Here's the project:

[attachurl=#]

You can run the debug or compile it yourself. It's done in VS2010.

The WebClient method is actually better, but the way I have that there is a bit more visual with a control, etc. Also, you can actually surf with it.

For those that like heavier stuff, Exodus - Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer):

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HNZrHZ0-xI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HNZrHZ0-xI</a>

Just don't post the lyrics to Facebook or you'll go to jail. Really. Exodus posted about it here. Gary Holt chimes in on the topic:

Quote
“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society,” states EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt.

Holt is one wicked guitarist. I saw him play with Slayer just after Hanneman took ill from a spider bite.

Via google they leave it open so to be indexed.

I rather doubt this. Google web crawlers are likely run entirely differently on different IP addresses and wouldn't be sending the same HTTP header information.

I'm sure a lot of people have noticed this, but if you visit a pay site you'll hit the paywall. However, if you hit the site through a Google search, you're good to go. Here's an example:

Search term: Queen ‘horrified’ that Scotland might go it alone

Link: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/
queen-horrified-that-scotland-might-go-it-alone/story-fnb64oi6-1227050425460


Google redirector: https://www.google.com.au/url?

Now, it's nice to get the whole article, but is this boosting Google when you use a Google redirector link for other people?

Has anyone tried this on other search engines?

You have to watch it to the end though.

Here's an excellent, simple explanation of elliptic curve point addition, which is used in elliptic curved cryptography like Bitcoin uses:

Is it for Markdown, Standard Markdown, Github Flavoured Markdown, YankeesSuck, Dicknose Flavoured Markdown...?

FWIW - CommonMark has an online test here:

I was already using a webBrowser control and was looking into using the HTML Agility Pack I got off NuGet to do this, but it is seeming like a pain in the ass...Also..I suck BADLY with Regex lol

You need to decide on which control you will use. I'll use the stock control here.

Formatted for C# with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.        private void webBrowser1_DocumentCompleted(object sender, WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs e)
  2.        {
  3.            if (webBrowser1.DocumentText.Contains("No Messages Found")) {
  4.                this.Text = "No Messsaged Found found";
  5.            }
  6.        }

That is all you need.

BWAHAHAHAHA~! That was awesome!  Thmbsup

My neighbour is a kiwi. I forget whether it was her or someone else pointing out the pronunciation of 'e' is often like 'i' in New Zealand.

Every now and then I learn a new word, and those with me get a kick out of me not knowing some terminology/slang.

Accents around here are pretty wild though. There's an extreme diversity.

Here's a list of some friends and neighbours by ethnicity and accent (there are some interesting mixes).

Egyptian - Victorian Australian accent
Egyptian - Arabic English accent with some Victorian Australian smoothing
Irish - Irish accent
Indian - Victorian Australian accent (no Indian accent)
Canadian - Canadian accent
Australian - Queensland accent
Vietnamese - British RP mixed with Victorian Australian accent (and she's North Vietnamese, not south)
Vietnamese - North Vietnamese English accent largely smoothed by Victorian Australian English
Sudanese - Thick accent with Victorian Australian accent smoothings
Croatian - Heavy Australian accent (that I can't make out the location - seems Queenslandish, but he's never lived there) with Croatian tones
Swedish - Heavy Swedish English accent with very little Australian English smoothing (he's 80ish and has lived here for 50+ years)

Anyways, just one of those things of casual interest.

I should go out on my deck for a fag now. Wink tongue

Yes, in fact it is! Time to test out Seagate.

I had a Seagate drive die of SMART errors. They replaced it zero questions and in record time. I walked up to the desk, said what happened - handed him my drive - he got a new one and handed it to me. I was pretty shocked at how easy and fast it was.
