WhyReboot?

This tiny little freeware program is very simple but i find myself using it constantly, whenever some program tells me it wants to reboot to "complete the install".

Can usually give you some good insight into what operations are pending the reboot:
Tiny, simple, risk free; doesn't change anything, just reports on what it finds in the registry settings that are used to perform operations on rebooting.

an example of how you might use such a program: you download tons of pdf files on a regular basis and you want to easily identify and remove duplicates.  a duplicate file finder is one of those things that if you need it, you really need it, and a good one can save you tons of time.  but not everyone needs such a tool.

i find the hour-of-the-day and day-of-the-week charts most interesting..  i assume those trends are internet-wide for most sites.

"Merriam-Webster just released Open Dictionary to better take and share the pulse of language through the Web. Of course, Webster's has long celebrated and conveyed language's evolution - unlike linguistic prescriptivists who fail to grasp that's just what language does; and - where I've compared entries - they've certainly done so in a more consistent, professional fashion than online amateurs have in recent years: might Open Dictionary - in conjunction with Webster's standard Online Dictionary - yield the best of authoritative (top-down) and organic (bottom-up), online lexicography?"

nice idea.

26936  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Thanks to all who donated in November - and remember when the site was slow? on: December 02, 2005, 11:30:00 PM
I just wanted to say again THANK YOU to everyone who donated in November during our fundraiser.

For many of you it was not your first donation, and I can't tell you how much your continued support of the site means.   embarassed

I also just wanted to point out that your donations have real effects.

For one thing they have allowed us to be able to afford this new dedicated server we've been on for the last month.  It wasn't clear initially if we were going to be able to afford to stay on it, but your donations have made it possible for us to do so.

And I'm sure you'll agree if you visited us before November and you think back, that the new server has made all the difference in the world in terms of making the site fast and responsive.

this sounds like a fantatic idea for adding to DoOver, Skrommels quick macro tool!
how about just an option on DoOver tray menu to engage a timer (whose length could be configured).

26940  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / CONTEST: Win a copy of VMWare with the best VMWare Player Idea on: December 02, 2005, 04:40:19 PM
This is a little contest centering around VMWare Player.

You can learn about VMWare Player here: http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

Quote
VMware Player is free software that enables PC users to easily run any virtual machine on a Windows or Linux PC. VMware Player runs virtual machines created by VMware Workstation..

VMWare Player Forum: http://www.vmware.com/com...ty/forum.jspa?forumID=123

VMWare Player Faq: http://www.vmware.com/products/player/faqs.html


Basically the idea is you can use the full VMWare Workstation program to create VMWare Player files, that can be publically shared, that anyone can then run.

A clever example of using VMWare Player can be found in this sample download on the vmware site, it's basically a complete linux distribution configured to run firefox, built as a virtual machine in VMWare Player.  It provides a complete sandboxed browsing experience and so is extremely safe.

Sample VMWare Browser Aplliance: http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/vm/browserapp.html



So..

This contest will reward the most creative, new, and useful use of VMWare Player.

We will run this contest at least through january, but we may keep it open for longer if we don't get a good enough submission by january.

The intention will be that the winner will make the winning VMWare Player application which can be publically shared as freely with others.

hehehe.. well
im feeling a little guilty.. as usual my frustration sometimes boils over and i get carried away..
usually jibz can talk me down but when he is not around..

i wouldn't say im retracting that statement - just that the basic featureset of outpost is great, and the interface is great.
it does seem to be to be a bit unstable/buggy.  but many people are clearly happy with it, so it might still be worth a try if you are evaluating firewalls.

i will stop cheerleading for it though, until they get it stable.
26942  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Great Firewall Hunt ... frustrating ... on: December 02, 2005, 12:30:40 PM
outpost 3 might be worth a try if you are willing to take a chance; it certainly works for many and it's a nice program if its stable on your pc.

we've discussed in this forum how careful you have to be to insure that stuff these programs "find" are really the bad things they say they are.

these programs tend to flag stuff that is good and mistake it for something different which is similar -
just be careful what you let it delete until you are SURE it is in fact the bad thing that the program says it is -
sometimes a similar name can confuse it and you end up deleting something important and harmless.

xnview has been annoying me recently when it comes to recentering its dialog and handling multimonitor, something with irfanview always handled perfectly... i'm considering switching back from xnview to irfanview.  maybe ill check out fastone.

i would *not* run multiple *resident scanning* programs at the same time.

it's fine to have multiple programs installed that only scan on demand, but i would disable all but one resident (i.e. running always in the background) spyware/adware scanner, and onlt one resident antivirus, and only one resident firewall scanner.

this thread is getting good.

i think crono's link to Tabbrowser Preferences may be the key extension that i like.
[EDIT: actually it was this one i liked, though it seems to be unrecommended(?): http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/...bextensions/index.html.en]

Addendum:

People who won got an email telling them their predicted "happiness."
Happiness is calculated as follows:  Your rating for the prize you won / Your rating for your highest rated prize
