There are people who don't block ads ...

 Grin yeah, had that one covered (thanks Ren) and flashblock too.


I'm just after installing QuickJava - "quick enable disable" sounds good - not going to chance restarting though till I'm finished here embarassed


RE technology going backwards:
I guess they've phased out all the dialup friendly stuff cause everyone has such a good internet connection these days cheesy

Thanks 4wd
was thinking I could have two Firefox profiles -- one which loads images, one not.

Loading images on demand would be the best solution -- but this is good Thmbsup

I'm looking for any tips for how to cope with dial-up internet speeds Sad
(Connection has been bad for a while but took a dive on Friday, was gone completely this afternoon, is at a snails pace this evening.)

Firefox doesnt even seem to have a stop-page-loading buttons any more...

1) I remember someone here talking here (I think not too long ago) about a text based browser i.e. it just showed text  - any ideas there?

2) or something that stopped images from loading -- but allowed you to choose to load an image -- that would probably be ideal.

FWIW, Gmail in the browser often works with the basic html interface, even when no other sites load properly.

TIA smiley

The first time lapse photography I remember seeing was in the George Pal version of The Time Machine

I saw it in the theater when it was first released and was totally fascinated by it(I must have been 9 years old.)  I remember the film got an Oscar for Special Effects.

I found this:

Edit:  Sorry.  Thought I had the YouTube for it but it wants $2.99.  So I changed the link to the IMDB entry.  Sad

huh? has it come to this - is YT charging? tellme

Here's a stunning landscape / night-sky time lapse video (up to 4k quality)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3xkHmC-KQE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3xkHmC-KQE</a>

Photography Tom Lowe
Music Nigel John Stanford

Apparently above is excerpts from a film -- Timescapes -- which also includes slow-motion photography.
Two trailers below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgKXcQ9PLuc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-GYrbecb88

Not so gone on the slow-motion stuff (the music is apt but doesnt move me either) but the time-lapse stuff is really stunning.

I want to type correctly everywhere! in firefox, in chrome, in thunderbird, everywhere!

have you had a look at IainB's link?

I said I am not looking for that type of software, I need something more sophisticated

are you looking towards the future, or are you hoping something actually exists?
If you hope it actually exists it would be helpful to elaborate on what exactly you want -
this was a little vague:

I would like something, maybe with artificial intelligence or something, that will detect the correct thing I want to say

189  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 04:15:19 PM
tomos - it does work the list entries, but not with the checklists (I tried that already)

OK -
I was testing on my laptop where I seldom use sChecklist - the version I have is not up-to-date:
with version 1.0.5 build 1 -- it works with the checklists on Windows 8.1
I updated to version 1.0.9 build 1 -- and it no longer works with checklists, as you report.
190  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: (Pre) Release: sChecklist on: November 26, 2014, 03:22:54 PM
Skwire,  I can't figure out how to move checklists up and down in the panel.
I thought if I clicked a checklist to select it that I could then use the regular up and down arrows to move it, but that didn't work.

 - works with the Control key (+ the arrow key/s).
(This also works for entries in a list.)

The offer to install the Search App by Ask was still there, and checked by default.
Oracle actually offers a solution for disabling those 'sponsor offers': https://www.java.com/en/d...ad/faq/disable_offers.xml

thanks Ath Thmbsup
that will make life a lot easier, especially helping family that dont know what & when to untick the box.
192  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: November 25, 2014, 02:41:27 PM
hmmm
what I like about bitcoin is that it's outisde the current system.
Does that equate with being rebellious? I dont think so - well not necessarily so. As 40 says, sometimes how you do something is more important, so we may have to wait a bit there.

I dont see this as a 'revolution' in it's traditional meaning -- I think those kind of revolutions never really work anyway -- they're mostly making relatively superficial changes.
What could work is grass roots change -- transformation even ;-)
And to people who think it cannot work -- in one of Antonopoulos's videos he talks about politicians already accepting bribes in bitcoin and this being the start of the end so-to-speak (do you remember which vid that was Ren?).

Re Bitcoin: I'm neither a 'believer' nor a cynic -- but I think bitcoin *is* going to change the world, how exactly, I dont know, but it's made a start already, and even if it fails as a currency, it has opened doors that cannot be closed.
193  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Need help with an e-book I purchased on: November 25, 2014, 01:57:37 PM
hi boomba212,
I'd say the best route would be manual scrolling:

  • begin a scrolling capture (and select the scrolling option)
  • on the next dialogue window, you get the option to "Let me manually scroll the window"
  • on the next dialogue, select horizontal content, and follow the instructions

No guarantees though ;-)
194  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Move files to folders named after part of filename on: November 25, 2014, 05:34:08 AM
(just for the record) something comparable was requested lately:

Hello. Would it be possible to add a feature to find common text between files and use that as an name for the folder?
eg we have  files
[Chemistry] Workbook 01.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 02.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 03.rar
So the new folder is named [Chemistry] Workbook.

This is doable.  However, in your example, technically, the common text would be "[Chemistry] Workbook 0" right?

This says pretty much everything I think and might say about Gamergate. Since somebody (Ken White) went through all the trouble of writing it up, I won't duplicate effort by doing my own version.

that was very helpful, thanks!

I've avoided the 16:9 format so far (well, apart from laptops where it's often a real pain).
Even 16:10 is a big improvement over 16:9 -- if you can find it these days.

I dont think that 1:1 would suit me personally, but it's great to see thumbs up  -
would be nice to see more variety in the market in the future.
