Karen Carpenter was another one of these vocalists (like Presley) who might have left an even bigger mark in music history had they not done so much schlock (although very good schlock) pop music in their careers.

I know what you mean, yet I think the stuff they did was perfect. Perfectly done, perfectly sung, with this dreamlike perfect-world vibe (I know the lyrics were at times about darker things).
And what a voice Kiss

I mean like a service, a business, etc

I think it's the ideas that will change society - the services and businesses will follow.

Try webmail notifier, an excellent Firefox add-on. FF can run in the background and you still get notified.

this is now called X-notifier
https://addons.mozilla.or...don/xnotifier/?src=search

Reviews of recent versions are mixed.

That being said, when I then Save it, I have the desired item now resting on the Screenshot Capture Grey rectangular background..

haven't done this myself, but just wondering, have you checked how the image looks in a different image viewer? Or on your website even.
It is possible that the grey background is actually transparent - and showing SC's default grey background through the image - which is what you need.

I'm never sure of the dance music genres - what's what, I mean.
There's no video here, but worth a listen I reckon:

The amount of work to do this is STAGGERING.  As is the fact the he was able to do it.

it's great to be able to see how it's done (it almost makes it look easy).

It's unclear to me:
does it do dual-pane - or are the multiple panes always showing the same location?
139  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Interesting "stuff" on: January 09, 2015, 03:45:08 AM
Society doesn't have expectations of people. That feeling you get about what society wants is your brain trying to predict what people will like. So when you complain about society's expectations, you are either complaining that people like the wrong things or that your warped brain is misinterpreting the desires of other people. Good luck solving either problem.

Comment of the day.

they've got a great word in spoken German - Yein - it's a cross between yes and no.
Society is peoples' expectations that have been enshrined in various ways, and made into the 'norm'. So, I'd say it's not all (just) in your head.
Otherwise I agree, and reckon the easier one to solve is what's going on in your own head.
Not saying it's easy though...

One new head here please ;-)

Weird. None of the images will load for me.
it's loading okay here atm.

Someone close to me died last month. I didnt get to meet them that often, maybe once, or twice a year if I was lucky, but we phoned fairly regularly. It could have been a lot more difficult - they were ready to go, and it happened quickly. But I think it's always more difficult for those left behind (or maybe not).
Then my elderly neighbour across the road died, his wife seems pretty stunned. Met another elderly woman today at a small birthday party, her partner died recently after 46 years together. That must be hard - it was for her anyways. Funny, my father died a few years back, and my mum didnt find it that difficult - she felt like he was still in the house (not like as a ghost, more like a feeling, I guess).

What I wanted to say in my first post above, (but didnt), was that sometimes it's hard to let the feelings out, to express it, whatever-it-is: pain, missing, love. And that the comic helped. Thanks thumbs up
I find people sympathising difficult, maybe that's why I didnt write anything about this earlier. But, like with the comic, sometimes it's just gotta get out there.
'Night all.

Travel posters - "Exoplanet Travel Series" from JPL/NASA

If you want to read a bit more about Keppler 186f, try this g+ post:
Quote
Kepler-186f, the one pictured below, is my favorite because it captures some interesting physics. It orbits a red dwarf about 500 light-years from Earth, and it was the first planet discovered which is potentially suitable (in terms of things like temperature) for life as we know it. But life would be different in some interesting ways.

One of the reasons is that photosynthesis would be a bit different. Plants on Earth are green because their leaves contain chlorophyll, a chemical which absorbs sunlight and turns that energy [explains why plant green here and red there]


Further afield (I dont honestly have a clue if it's further or nearer :p) there's been a new picture of the "Pillars of Creation" released by Hubble.

Some interesting info about how the colours in the image are mapped:
Quote
For those wanting technical details, the picture below was taken in visible light, using a "false-color" technique to make it more visible. It was photographed through three filters: an Sii filter (673nm, a fairly dark red color which is characteristically emitted by Sulfur), a H-? filter (657nm, a brighter red which characterizes Hydrogen), and an Oiii filter (502nm, a blue-green characteristic of Oxygen). Those three colors are then mapped to red, green, and blue (respectively) to form an image that clearly highlights the gas distribution to the human eye. This particular combination of light filters is the one most commonly used when photographing astronomical gas clouds.

I dont have any particular talent (that I know of) in this direction, but if there were some vector files available, I could have a go - maybe just do a variation or just mess around and see what comes out at the end. Dunno, is there anything in some vector format anywhere (preferably openable by Illustrator CS4) ?
