5179  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Cheap Photo paper recommendations? on: May 15, 2009, 08:44:02 AM
Can anyone recommend reasonably cheap but reasonable quality photo paper ?
Reasonable blacks, good colour balance, that sort of thing
The photos will remain in an album so light-fastness isnt a very important issue.
Was looking for something quick-drying, min. 240 gr weight, and A4 size. (Printer is a Canon)

I used to get my cheap paper from Conrad (German company) - @ circa 7euro for 25 x A4 pages (http://www1.conrad.de)  but it's gone to the dogs - they've made it adhesive on the back, problem being that the edges are all sticky, pages stick together, printer no like no more . .

BTW &
FWIW, for good quality paper I use
Ilford Pearl Paper (with a Canon printer as said above)
Ilfordpros
Smooth PearlInstant Dry
Classic PearlVery lightfast (but sensitive to moisture, including handling)

Cheers, that looks like what i need. however, i read in the article that some of the functions can be attain via auto hotkeys? would roll up and down be one of those? call me fussy, but im so used to middle clicking on minimize now, that i often truly believe other machines are broken when it doesn't work.

you could add it as a coding snack request, someone might be able to oblige!

. . I forgot to mention, not bothered if free or not. Had a quick look, but i couldn't see about rolling windows up or down, which is the main thing i really need!

this may be overkill . . but it is very desirable cheesy

5183  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Tweak Guide -- Is there a way to customize keyboard shortcuts? on: May 14, 2009, 07:52:06 AM
since you've already installed keyconfig, you can change it to any hotkey you want, even Ctrl+Z as in Opera.. thumbs up
yes,
I still had to restart to finish install when I last posted.
It said Ctrl+Z mightnt work due to it being used by Edit>Undo but it seems to work okay for both functions now smiley

I'm not sure what the 'functions for keyconfig' does but I dont seem to  need it anyway - actually I think it may simply be a 'sleeping' add-on that enhances the other one.

Looking forward to changing a few more shortcuts, thanks!

5185  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: whats that smell??? on: May 14, 2009, 05:07:24 AM
if that was the case, then how comes the lady that cleaned the fridge was not affected by it?

the fireman said "Someone" sprayed what they thought was air freshener but turned out to be a "spot cleaner" which caused a couple dozen people to be really sick.

I read an article somewhere talking about smells and how we react to them - it was fairly straight forward:
if you smell something really horrible the message the brain gets can induce fairly heavy nausea etc. The idea being to make you get away from the offending smelling stuff so as you dont get really sick from it.
The cleaner didnt feel sick because she couldnt smell . .
5186  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Tweak Guide -- Is there a way to customize keyboard shortcuts? on: May 13, 2009, 04:50:01 PM
funny,
I've been using FF for what seems like years now, but only today have I really followed up on 'where's the option to change the shortcuts'.
I was using Opera again lately and had gotten used to Ctrl+Z re-opening last closed tab. Nice and easy. In FF it's Ctrl+Alt+T . . or, wait a minute, is it Ctrl+Shift+T undecided - one of them duplicates current tab, the other does what I'm looking for but I'm damned if I can ever remember which one does which . .
anyways,
I've just installed Sri's first two suggestions so hopefully that'll sort me out smiley

... well,
you should know what you want to backup Grin

  • after a recent thread, (cant remember name now..*) I think if I was to get a new PC I would get a smaller drive just for windows and at least one other drive then. Ups the price naturally, especially if you were to get a higher speed drive for the OS.

  • Prob too soon to talk about monitors but I would read the negative reviews of those monitors pretty carefully before going for it! (advantage of reviews at NewEgg is you can zoom in on the bad reviews - not the case at that other site..)

CouchSurfing is a worldwide network for making connections between travelers and the local communities they visit.

Idea being for travellers you can crash on someones couch and they get rated by visitors so as things will (hopefully) stay above board.
So, not a recommendation, but an idea.

Hmm, I am not seeing anything impressive that would let me spend money really on that list. As far as I can tell Pdf creator can do most of it. ALthough I would not suggest you to use latest versions Pdf creator because it if filled with some spyware, search toolbar crap.

which PDFCreator is that ? - I know there's two (at least) - could you mean the one available via SourceForge tellme

Short info: http://www.donationcoder....rum/index.php?topic=18207

I think it would be nice to give 5 licences to "May reviewers" (randomly selected). That way DC can gain an information about good software and maybe break someone's laziness.

The rest of them are up to mouser's decision / ideas.

sounds great thumbs up

It would be the best to give licences to people who participate here a little bit more. That is why it could be the best for you to take your time and write review of your favourite software. It doesn't mean another TC description.

You are free to write about almost anything. If you think you are using excellent tool with nice features... and you are sure someone else can find it useful, then write about it. It is "May offer" so you have about three weeks to do so. I think there is plenty of time even for lazy people Wink

so, is that official then fenix? (competition)
would probably be good to start a new thread to announce it

2) While selecting the modifiers and key groups before scanning allows you to scan for less shortcuts, checking everything didn't seem to take that long.  It might be more useful if you just scanned for everything and then allowed the user to filter the results based on selected modifiers and key groups.

in the panel on the left it would be good to have an 'All' tick-box as well as the 'None' one

5198  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Am I missing something obvious? How do you paste??? on: May 05, 2009, 05:06:03 PM
I've had problems and am having them again unfortunately, with pasting in apps that are html(?) or have to do with html -
browsers, Evernote.
If you do only have the problem occasionally you can do a simple Ctrl+V paste after the unsuccessful paste and your selection will be pasted - obviously this not a solution if it's happeneing so much (is 90% a realistic or an exasperated estimate!?)

I'd say I'm having the problem less than 10% of the time
Do you get any error messages?

Thanks Tranglos!
It's really nice to be able to see which keys are available - very convenient for planning hotkeys thumbs up

No idea who's using a lot of those keys undecided afraid to try them out, god knows what would happen ... smiley
