Funny or unfunny?

Stupid as opposed to silly, and I guess funny in the saddest way possible thumb down

It depends, based on resolution vs. screensize...

Yeah, I should have mentioned this:
on that machine I have exactly the same resolution/size monitor as JXS, but only one (JXS has two)

2 x 22" Displays with resolution of 1680*1050 each

I edit a doc/docx/xls/xlsx file and I send it over email to another person
is he able to view the previous editions before I edit the file?

This is like the verbal equivalent of an Escher illustration :-/

As written in my first post, the zoom is set to 100%:

It's interesting that the "Default" label is after the 125% in your screenshot there.

Here (win7 pro, x64) it's after the 100%

[attachthumb=#]

possibly has no significance, but it did stand out to me.

Well, they fixed my last problem and seem to have introduced a half-dozen others...

I've read that they have recapitulated on the realname thing, but I've got to say I'm not sure what they're at.
This has been going on for a while now:

Machine #1:
Windows 7; Firefox/PaleMoon; logged into gmail account; in g+/Youtube with my Youtube name; no Java installed:

  • I am completely unable to post in YouTube - it always opens a popup offering to start a g+ account with my gmail name suggested
  • [edit] I'm unable to view my 'notifications' when in YT
  • *but* I am able to thumbsup a video or add it to one of my playlists [/edit]


Machine #2 (differences are: Java *is* installed, and OS):
Windows 8.1; Firefox/PaleMoon; logged into gmail account; in g+/Youtube with my Youtube name; Java installed:

  • I *am* able to post in YT using my g+/YT name
  • Whenever I load someone else's g+ page, I get an error in loading circles: i.e. I am unable to follow anyone new


At this stage, I suspect this is a combination of pure incompetence, and an unwillingness to let go of the ideal of having gmail and g+ and YT using the same name.

Tom, would you mind giving this a test and see if you can trigger that freeze-whilst-resizing bug?

Website | Download
v1.0.7 - 2014-09-09
    * Made some changes to, hopefully, fix the freeze-while-resizing bug.
    ! Choosing File, Exit from the menu only minimized to the tray.


You'll be happy to hear Jody that I'm unable to crash or freeze it thumbs up thumbs up

Ah, okay - if I simply search google here for:
Queen ‘horrified’ that Scotland might go it alone
and click the link provided, I then get the full article.
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google playing dirty, or being a nice guy? on: September 09, 2014, 02:38:36 AM
Should I have hit a paywall for either of those links?  Because I get the full article regardless which I click.

hah, exactly the oppoisite here - have to click out of the register box on both; get the first paragraph on both; and then the 'Premium content' notification.

Here in Paraguay I get a message that says the video is not allowed to be accessed on certain sited. And the message offers a link to watch it on YouTube itself.

thanks, it's 'local' then, because I get the same message on YT as well (i.e. "Video not available").
(The content is over my level anyways Wink I was just curious.)

This is funny... but way too esoteric for the silly humour thread:

You have to watch it to the end though.

Thanks Stephen thumbs up thumbs up

Have opened a few links in new tabs, but not read them yet. Just wanted to note:
you've used the title "Intel launches first 14-nanometre processor for thin fanless PCs" twice, I think that's a mistake.

  • 2. BC is unable to "detect" changes in paragraph order.
[..]
For point.2, how far should I read to get that para order has changed

this seems like a reasonable wish to me: simply indicating somehow that the block of text is elsewhere in the other file would be very helpful.
(Note: I dont use BC - not yet anyways)

(I'd imagine that this could be problematic with comparing code though, or files where stuff gets repeated/duplicated a lot.)

reminds me of a video a year or two ago, where the new technological idea of 'the book' gets introduced. Two monks, I think, one showing the other how it works. (I *think* it was another one from Scandanavia somewhere.)

Anyone remember that one?

This one doesnt fully fit the bill, but I couldnt resist:

"Five honours** and a 175,
got my education and a license to drive"


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9OmrOv_LU0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9OmrOv_LU0</a>

The Alsatians - Five honours and a 175
not sure what year - late 70's, early 80's


** 'Honours' are the Irish equivalent of (I think) somewhere between successful 'O' and 'A' levels in Britian. (No idea how they relate to US)

125  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Using Arrow keys when selecting an area on: September 03, 2014, 01:01:40 PM
Not when making the screenshot, but after opening the screenshot in the main window, you can select an area within the screenshot, and then use the arrow keys to adjust the selection:

  • hold the mouse near each edge of the selection
  • check the box showing enlargement of area around the mouse (see arrow in screenshot below)
  • use arrowkeys with qualifier keys - here's where my tutorial is weak: different qualifier keys (Alt, Shift, Control) affect different sides of the selection and I can never remember which is which, so I simply try them out - if they work good (if not be sure to reverse the action as you may have just adjusted the other side of the selection).
