what gets me about that kind of junk is that people who should know better leave all address visible and your email address ends up going around the world to god knows who (Iz grumpy today embarassed )

Superboyac - that's wonderful stuff. I've gotta admit I dont know much about jazz and have been put off by meandering improvisations that just weren't my cup of tea - but that "rocks" if I may say so  ;-)   I'm not even a very big rock music fan but you get my meaning!


Well, i have more such songs/videos links to post here, but i'm not sure if anyone is as trance addicted as me. :p
thanks for the links Mahesh, I'm loving it - working like a maniac here listening to that stuff Grin
John O'Callaghan & ATB - Summer Rain mix are favourites so far (working my way down the list - havent heard the last couple yet)


Eva Cassidy - Fields of Gold
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGwDYBWEDSc
wow,
she is amazing, what a voice!

have a listen to Mary Margaret O'Hara When You Know Why You're Happy another woman with an absolutely amazing voice ... other good tracks are "Year in Song" "Bodies in Trouble" - she can be fairly eccentric btw ;-)


EDIT/ havent even looked at this page yet ...

lately I've been printing a lot & find it disrupts
so I have turned off my printer (Canon inkjet), I print as normal, and then, when I turn on my printer, all outstanding documents get printed. [with whatever settings I chose in the printer dialogue box]
I was suprised to see that this worked even after a restart (I had forgotten there was a printer "queue")

I realise this may not be a solution for you but have you tried this with your printer?
5229  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Your favorite quotes? on: December 08, 2008, 05:37:51 PM
great thread:- most LOL ones
(for me)
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits. - Albert Einstein
"I feel so miserable without you; it's almost like having you here." - Stephen Bishop

I enjoyed lots of iphigenie's, in particular
Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.
- Stephen Vincent Benet
look, I guess this is kind of inappropriate and definitely off-topic, but a friend of mine nearly died in a car crash Saturday morning, he had his second major operation today and things are looking good - woo-hoo :-) - helps me appreciate the minutes smiley
[no need to comment, just enjoy the minutes too Wink]
5230  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to share file access between two applications? on: December 08, 2008, 09:59:18 AM
could you use two different config files and synchronise them now and again ? -
could be a problem if both change between synchs - the synch programme will copy the most recent and you'll lose the less recent changes
-
is there any app that would "combine" two files?

but really,
it sound like you'd need to talk to  the app developers in order to make a proper job of it...(I think!)

But Southern Rock is the closest I'll ever get to listening to Country and/or Western.  tongue
I (also) grew up with stuff like Christy Moore, a far cry from country but one thing can lead to another Wink (go on have a listen - it wont bite ;-)
The Ballad of an Ordinary Man
Smoke And Strong Whiskey
City of Chicago

@4WD
really enjoyed "Molly Hatchet - Fall Of The Peacemakers" (and they do a great version of Freebird)
and I think you got me listening to most of the Clash's London Calling on youtube. Rediscovered this one too - The Clash - Magnificent Seven - Tom Synder Show 1981
[edit/ forgot to add - 40hz this has to be one of the three best from Billy Idol ;-) Eyes Without a Face ]

for a bit more variety how about a bit of country cheesy George Jones & Elvis Costello - Stranger In The House (also 1981)



that was heavy going, really shocking really, glad something "good" happened in the end

Not sure I'd really call it a good ending, but I suppose you feel the same way and that's why you put it in quotes. Wink
well,
it was a relief that the guy stopped being the way he had been. and didnt get killed.

... can buy Softmaker Office for a much cheaper price. Could you please let us know where and for how much?

I've just discovered Softmaker -- it loads really fast and everything about it is great.

it's sold as Ashampoo Office as well - they sell it cheaper - doesnt have scripting (which I know nothing about so may be describing incorrectly) but otherwise the same I believe.

They have occasional special offers which usually get posted here - or they prob have a newsletter /they do send you lots of mail once you sign up
5238  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me! on: December 03, 2008, 08:29:33 PM
wow, I'm hearing so much new music here, great cheesy and following links to other stuff
-
Warman, hadnt heard him before, somehow led me on to The Models King Of Kings (more music from oz [edit: that I hadn't heard before]), which (again somehow) led me to Lost in a Forest by The Cure, and Love will tear us apart Joy Division (definitely a 1980-ish vibe going on for me still)
5239  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me! on: December 03, 2008, 03:07:15 PM
forgot to say - Deo - I really enjoyed the Lemon Jelly tracks  thumbs up

Zaine:
Finally, one of the strangest and most moving videos I've ever seen by Unkle called, Rabbit in your Headlights. It was sad and powerful and strangely damning. And then there's the end of the video, the part no-one forgets. The whole video is utterly cryptic. It's almost impossible to say what it means, but it's equally hard to find someone who can watch it, really watch it, and remain unmoved.
that was heavy going, really shocking really, glad something "good" happened in the end
I'm  also glad I watched the "OK Go - Here It Goes Again" one after Grin had a good laugh (phew!)

havent listened to everything yet but working my way through them, thanks for the music :-)


edit/ forgot to say 4WD - I've actaully heard "Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson" (that track in particular) on the radio somewhere - I'm presuming there was a good few beeps involved Wink

With links on:-

Grrr, what is it with youtube and "this movie is not available in your country"? The people who thought of that need to be shot, asap. (Can't watch the "Mad World" video - is it the Gary Jules cover from Donnie Darko, or the original Tears For Fears?)
this is a little confusing,
but if I understand correctly it's Gary Jules with his first video of the song - it's the one filmed from the rooftop of kids making different "things" on the footpath below
Quote
The original video of Mad World. (the one by Gary Jules, of course. By original, I meant the actual Gary Jules one, not the Donnie Darko one. There. Happy? I am heavily aware of the fact that TFF did a video long before Gary. I knew before I posted the video. You'd think that one of the progenitor of the video would know these things.) Throughout the video children are making animated figures on the sidewalk below. (the song was featured in the movie Donnie Darko. If you haven't seen it, seriously consider it.)


(see attachment in previous post)Wouldn't want to miss THIS ONE!
really enjoyed that one - or there's the techno version cheesy

what's the first number/time
72:etc above? i.e. I dont know what the "Decimal Clock" is -
I would have thought the "Normal Clock" here was a decimal clock...

also wondering what will "time conversion" involve? (I'm wondering are you translating correctly - I think conversion is usually to do with time zones? I could very well be wrong!)

thanks!

 ohmy Sad Angry

That was awful! Easily one of the worst customer support cases I've ever seen. I can hardly believe Avira is that bad with regards to support for home users, but the evidence is there. Thanks for posting it, tomos

Make that -1 for Avira

unfortunately

they dont seem to have a number in US/Rest of the world and they offer numbers in Germany/Aus/Switzeland @ €1.99 a mimnute and email support is only "for the customers of our business products (AntiVir ProfessionalEdition)"

not sure but the guy had a paid up version, got a refund - I'm just after buying the "Premium" version

Looking at their site again - they dont make this clear but after digging a bit, I found the "Pro" version for desktop is €36 as opposed to €20 that I paid for "Premium"..
so that's why they were so cheap - I'd prefer if they were up front about it as well

Edit/ more readable hopefully ;-)
5246  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Question about result display size on: December 01, 2008, 09:29:54 AM
does there have to be a space before +sall, seems like it..

It is nice having a minimal UI but I think it would be good to have an easier way (for beginners/non-advanced especially) to access the rest of the list

a discreet arrow in the statusbar maybe? (although then you'd prob have to change/add to the statusbar text to ensure no confusion)

something like

[use arrow key to go to results                                                               further results V]
5247  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is XP really that good? on: December 01, 2008, 09:21:55 AM

I prob going a bit further off topic here -
I havent used that renamer, certainly looks a bit daunting - but I could imagine once you get to know it, you have all options at your fingertips.
I love a good looking programme (dont call me superficial yet!) and find myself often frustrated with interfaces of (windows platform) software, difficulties finding stuff/unintuitive, [requiring 20 clicks to do something that could/should be two] etc.

guess the point I want to make is that if I had to choose I'd choose functionality before beauty, but true, why not have both Wink
5248  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is it time to start a new AntiVirus/Internet Security Suite review thread? on: December 01, 2008, 06:12:04 AM
A reservation about Avira (AntiVir) is that they seem to have very poor support for non-corporate paying customers ..
This seems to be par for the course in Germany, cant understand why considering their good reputation for tech - maybe they think something doesnt need support if it's well crafted/made  Grin

It's called the"Service Wüste" here - the service desert ...

e.g. see http://forum.avira.com/wb...Thread&threadID=78157

Thanks Phil

good point.

i didn't know that links page existed either.

me neither, I was looking via the software link (maybe it is there but not easily visible - better double check now ... no, not there - not that I could find anyway Wink

I know there's some (a lot of?) software that isnt linked to in the software page - I realise it's probably lots of work but would probably be a good idea to provide more links to member pages or threads with software.
I realise this is often complicated by fact software updates are often given in new thread posts which makes it very difficult to know what's up-to-date ...

This is also why the best art is stuff that makes you think.

that's actually really made me think ..
Not even thinking about art now, but I tend to be more along the lines of tell em everything and rub their noses in it - never a good idea as I find out again and again LOL
