Track of the day for me: Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Live Stockholm '69

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9irsg1vBmq0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9irsg1vBmq0</a>

music only starts @ 0:58 (direct link, cued)
Powerful bass there too; there's a drum solo towards the end - I always have to think of Nick Hornby claiming to have left a Led Zepplin concert during a drum solo for a quick pint and a game of pool in a pub next door - when he came back, the solo was just finishing. I can relate to that approach myself ;-)

I know that in theory a "." in a file or foldername *should* be fine, I never use them though & I know I'm not alone. You're going to run into problems somewhere, eventually.


SC is definitely not thrilled with dots in filenames.  Can you confirm that is the problem?

I tried (one time) with the same foldernames as Contro used (09.2014 & 10.2014) and it didnt work. Browsing to the folder was fine, but as he said, changing the folder path from one to the other didnt work. (In Win8.1 x64; it worked fine with 'normal' folder names.)
178  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: YouTube finally forces creation of google+ A/C to comment on: September 26, 2014, 08:21:59 AM
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.

I'm going to go with incompetence.

that was funny with Chrome huh smiley

hasn't improved since either (with FF/win7 at any rate):

  • I can like a video, but not someone's comment
  • if I try to comment, it tries to get me to create a new g+ page (with my 'real' name as per gmail account)
  • but, I just discovered, if I share the video and click the g+ button - I'm able to post as expected (i.e. with the g+ account that I am logged into and viewing the YT page with)

so, definitely seems like incompetence

Well, I have a much better understanding of where you're coming from Iain, after your last post.

FWIW (possibly because I was brought up Catholic - and haven't heard it before) I find App's joke very entertaining, but sadly also inappropriate for dc.

@IainB, you responded to mouser's labeling of your post, but you did not respond to the general desire to keep religious (and political) topics out of this thread - and out of dc in general (exception basement). There was a general agreement to avoid political and religious topics in dc, so what I dont understand is this: why post something where it is not wanted?
181  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Interesting "stuff" on: September 25, 2014, 01:14:38 PM
^ Yeah, I neglected to say that startpage also suggests the 'correct' spelling

so definitely better than google in this case. And miles better than duckduckgo. I find I use mostly the two alternatives (duckduckgo, startpage), and occasionally google or bing. I can never remember which ones are better at what, so it's usually trial and error for me...
182  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Interesting "stuff" on: September 25, 2014, 09:08:41 AM
^ https://startpage.com/ works better I find - but very occasionally, I do have to go back to google or bing.

With StartPage, this thread was #3 (!) and this was #6 when I searched mo lay tau:

EDIT// and ^that's^ better results than google Thmbsup

How can I try to explain this to make certain is my situation ?

Screenshots :-)

FWIW, changing the folder by changing the path works here


EDIT// I think it doesnt like the "." in the foldername

If I 'open' an image file via the SC thumbnail panel (double-click, or press enter with thumbnail selected), it opens in my windows default viewer.

Could that be used to view a large image full-size in another monitor?

Would you consider an option to not resize, but e.g. centre one image beside the other, using the existing option "transparent etc" to fill in the 'background' ?
already done. redownload beta.

lol, you're like roadrunner there -
did you just whip that up in 13 minutes ?? (is that a dc record ????)

Well done, works a treat Thmbsup

(Resizing one image with text makes it blurry compared to the other...)

192  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What is the logic of bezier curves? (for Illustrator pen tool) on: September 19, 2014, 04:10:50 AM
In FreeHand if I create a point in a line, I can move the location of that point before I move on to the next point.**
This might seem like a minor thing, but it isnt :-) it means you can fine-tune and correct your line while drawing it.
If you draw a lot, this is a huge timesaver.

I miss that in the game above. And, I dont know have they changed it since, but up till Illustrator CS4 anyways, you *cannot* do this -
you have to draw your line, and then go back and select and drag each point that needs to be adjusted.

One could argue, with reason, that the illustrator method encourages more accuracy in the first place, but to me, ease of use wins here.

** how that works:
  • make your point
  • if desired, drag to form curves
  • keeping the mouse button pressed, press the Control key and drag - the point moves

No solutions here, but this and reply (in the Bvckup thread) about open/save dialogues might be of interest.
195  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: I cannot move Office 2010 windows to another Grid in GridMove. on: September 12, 2014, 04:18:02 AM
Hello there,

I found the reply: I can "pick up" the Office 2010 windows with the mouse. They seem to behave different than the rest but if you take the mouse to an edge and wait long enough (you can define that time in Options / Set Edge Time) the window will move.

Great product!

Luis.

thanks for the update Thmbsup
I use GridMove myself - but only with shortcuts so had no ideas here.

PS if you do have any further problems with gridmove, it would be better to post in this board: JGPaiva's Ahk Tools (he's the author, and would then get notification of the post).

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)
