If your head/neck is 'tucked' there shouldnt be a problem turning the head to either side, up or down. That naturally doesnt mean there wont be difficulty doing this. I cant really help you any more - I know there are exercises you could do if you have stiffness there. There's a very active forum related to the posture method

try combining it with this:
imagine there's a string pulling you upwards, stretching your backbone, separating the vertebrae. That might make it easier to move the head while keeping better neck posture. Some of the following chapters in the book deal with learning how to 'lock' this stretched posture so it's not a constant effort. It's a nice feeling if you're able to really sit straight without that effort smiley It does take time for the body to change it's ways of course.
5234  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Posture in sitting/standing ideas, tips & tricks on: November 30, 2009, 04:43:44 AM
For example, when I have to tilt and move my neck, I'm not really sure whether I should continue feel like a tucked in giraffe/ostrich or it's alright to move it like normal.

lol Paul -
it depends on what 'normal' is - for very many people, 'normal' is head projecting forward which would make the 'tucked' posture feel weird. I find it the most persistent part of my old posture, a tendency to slump/round the shoulders and project the head forwards.

If your head/neck is 'tucked' there shouldnt be a problem turning the head to either side, up or down. That naturally doesnt mean there wont be difficulty doing this.

I prefer mp3Tag Pro. I like that this application can read and write OGG tags, WMA tags, M4a/MP4 tags, AAC tags, APE tags, FLAC tags, MPC tags, WV tags, WAV tags.

mp3Tag Pro seems to get a lot of first time posters recommending it...

I actually tried MP3 Tag Pro a month or two ago & I didn't think it was all that impressive from what I recall. There are much better solutions available.

Looks good Winkie Thmbsup

is there a limit on keys that can be used as shortcuts?

I have an english OS (XP SP2) but my keyboard (& location) are german(y). Shortcuts often show in german e.g. STRG + ALT + AKUT (*see below) to which the response is

[copy or print]
---------------------------
AltTabFingertips.ahk
---------------------------
Error: "AKUT" is not a valid key name.  The current thread will exit.

Line#
051: }
052: MI_SetMenuItemBitmap(hTrayMenu, 10, 8)  
054: Gosub,ReadIni
055: Gosub,SetHotkey
056: Gosub,ShowTrayTip
057: Menu,ATF_Menu,Add
058: Return
---> 061: Hotkey,%ATF_Hotkey%,ShowATF,ON
062: Return
065: RebuildMenu()  
067: MI_ShowMenu("ATF_Menu")  
068: Return
071: WinActivate,%A_ThisMenuItem%
072: Return
075: if bShowDesktop  

---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

note it doesnt appear to have a problem with STRG (Control) so maybe it's not a problem with the language?
I tried  ALT + ^  [Zirkumflex] - as that's just above my TAB key (so I could have the best of both) but that not accepted either.

* AKUT = ´
As a mostly left handed mouser something like the example above [RightAlt(which shows as Ctrl+Alt)+´] would be ideal for me on this keyboard.

many of the recommendations here are capless - has anyone had problems with that ? (visions of fluff or grit getting jammed in there if you dont check/clean it thoroughly before use...)

Sunbelt has a Black Friday sale on today - VIPRE AV and AS is $9.95 single and $19.95 for home licenses.

http://www.vipreantivirus.com/blackfriday/

Well worth it, in my opinion. The really nice thing is that if you have time remaining on a current subscription, you can buy now and apply the new license later and it will be good for a full 12 months from the date of activation  Thmbsup

that's still working (even though they say price reverts midnight last night) thumbs up
5241  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: a Privacy policy "as amended from time to time" - huh? on: November 28, 2009, 10:24:33 AM
Yeah, every company's privacy policy is worded like that. It's standard boilerplate anymore.

I removed 'Adobe' from thread title as everyone saying this standard bahaviour - it was the combination of demanding so much info & then seeing the privacy policy that got me posting in the first place...
Ironically,
I could have, (as you say Innuendo) downloaded it from loads of other sites....
5242  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: November 27, 2009, 12:09:05 PM
I only have "%APPDRIVE%\"
this was what worked

originally I had copied this (but exactly):

you can also use:
%APPDRIVE%\Applications\...
-
I suspect I was meant to fill in my own path instead of the path followed by dots? well I copied & pasted it & left the dots and that's why it didnt work (to create the  %APPDRIVE%\   I removed "Applications" & ended up with %APPDRIVE%\... which also didnt work)
5243  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: November 27, 2009, 10:10:39 AM
I did it from scratch again and it works Kiss - I still have the non-working one so will try compare them and see what went wrong -
this time I changed the ini file before starting FARR but dont see why that should make a difference (will report back later or soon)
5244  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: November 27, 2009, 09:11:17 AM
I only have "%APPDRIVE%\" checkbox ticked (so I could search only the flash drive) and it even works when using FARR from a TrueCrypt container.
Mine also doesn't ask for the license key but this is saved in the same folder as the executable so this is normal.
What can I do to help?

thanks for your generous offer Joby
answer though is - I dont know  Sad
I tried unticking all other search folders and it cant find anything at all so it's completely ignoring it's current drive
When I leave Farr scripts ticked it can find the correct aliases (i.e. on usb stick)

I dont have time to mess with it more today- maybe tomorrow I'll start from scratch again & report my steps exactly so they can hopefully be reproduced or I'll find some mistake I've made...
5245  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: November 27, 2009, 08:42:33 AM
v2.80.02 works ok for me as far as I could test it.
My .ini file looks like this:
[copy or print]
CONFIGDIR=.
PORTABLE=TRUE
-
mine the same...
I noticed when I started it that I didnt have to add license key so I think it might be still getting settings from my C install
5246  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CZB pack on: November 27, 2009, 08:30:41 AM
Go to this tab and delete what you want: (see attachment in previous post)

there's always a simple explanation - I was checking out all the ini files etc. embarassed  thanks mouser thumbs up
5247  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Need help with running FARR in portable mode on a USB drive on: November 27, 2009, 08:11:35 AM
I'm going travelling next week so having another go at this

~ I put a clean install on a USB stick
~ Corrected the ini file to PORTABLE=TRUE  (moved it to start of the line)
~ added %APPDRIVE%\Applications\... to "Search folders" in options (with score of 1000)
~ also added %APPDRIVE%\Programs\... as that's the name of programme folder  (with score of 1000)
~ also added %APPDRIVE%\ so it would hopefully search the whole drive  (with score of 1000)

unfortunately it cant find anything on the drive
Could it be using the ini file of my usual install - which is a default (here) C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot or am I doing something very wrong somewhere!
5248  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CZB pack on: November 27, 2009, 07:44:51 AM
Well I would start by erasing everything in user variables settings.
how is that done czb?
I happen to have just installed CZB pack today (first time but I still had a lot of the earlier versions which I simply deleted first - no problems!) - you do say in the first post to delete user variables - how is that done - is it the ini file? (I didnt know how to do it & then conveniently forgot it embarassed plugins seem to be working okay though)

Any takers to tell me how to "Delete old user variable section of FARR" (Recommended when updating)
thanks!

5250  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Be careful with your credit cards! on: November 27, 2009, 04:10:12 AM
that's very scary - and a bit surreal - someone has write that they ripped you off and then say write more or less 'so there'
did you contact the magazine to ask for a refund?
