The original request is really not a bad idea at all -- surely there are some existing magnify tools for visually imparied that do just this, right?  I mean we know there are zoom/magnify tools -- the post is just asking for one that will do a nice job of magnifying to a full screen.

I have seen Marc Maron on tv a few times and have never been a fan, but a friend recently turned me on to his podcast around the time that Robin Williams died (he had a pretty heavy interview with Robin Williams).

He has now done more than 500 podcasts -- which are 30-60 minutes in length and are mostly just one on one interviews with someone in comedy or music business.  I've been really impressed with them -- they are adult discussions, at times funny, sad, vulnerable, deep, etc.

Most of the podcasts are surprisingly deep and frank discussions with comedians, moving between discussions of personal struggles, work ethic, and the theory of comedy.  Really fascinating stuff.

Highly recommended.  What other podcasts do you guys listen to?

I know this is my own pet peeve, but if you've already posted a few times to a thread like this, maybe it would be appropriate to hang back and let the time between posts get long enough to encourage some new posters.

keep your senses alert for signs of Saffron.

While I don't believe in such things, two days ago while walking through town a very youthful cat on a lawn ran to me to be petted.  There were no people around.  He seemed happy and super friendly and care free.  But when I tried to pick him up he was determined to be put back down, after which he was happy again to be petted.

I decided to interpret this as a message from Saffron that she still remembers me but that her spirit is happy and renewed and glad to be set free from and not be bound any more by her earthly shackles.



As I said, I do not believe in ghosts or things like that -- it's that I am choosing to interpret this event in a way that gives me some peace of mind.

Loyal Dog Goes 15 Days without Food Guarding His Teenage Master’s Grave

Quote
Bhaskar was a construction worker who loved dogs dearly – he had adopted Tommy five years ago and the pair of them quickly became inseparable. When Bhaskar became victim to a terrible road collision, Tommy was heartbroken. The dog simply refused to part with his master and mourned by his graveside for 15 days.

10 miles x 10 days in a row?
That sounds crazy.  I'm going to donate but i'd still feel better if you didn't try to complete it if it risks injury.

Interesting study comparing reading on paper vs tablets:

Quote
In most respects, there was no significant difference between the Kindle readers and the paper readers: the emotional measures were roughly the same, and both groups of readers responded almost equally to questions dealing with the setting of the story, the characters and other plot details. But, the Kindle readers scored significantly lower on questions about when events in the story occurred.

I still like the idea of the original poster's request -- a (tray) utility (or FARR plugin) that showed a menu of the most recently used PATHS, and would open the folder on click.  It's slightly different functionality than being able to open the file itself.

Have you tried google docs?

Nice find, but MRU is not built into FARR, it's an excellent plugin written by dc member phitsc:

I can't tell you how impressed I am with the way you tackle these.  Not just your ability to follow through and consistently finish and submit an entry, but that you go the extra mile and write up the experience and document it.

As for your entry, I liked it!!  The sounds and the movement felt satisfying -- I find that's a hard thing for developers to get right in a game, and yours worked for me.  And the puzzle mechanic was pretty damn clever.

I loved the tutorial level and the text boxes that accompanied it -- I think you captured a nice Cthulhu spirit.

I did have some initial trouble understanding the rules, despite the tutorial.. Took me some time to figure out the critical idea about planet size, and the shield generators could be a little hard to see.

But seriously, this was a damn impressive entry  thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up

A tray utility that showed RECENT files and RECENT folders when clicked would solve this and be a nice coding snack..

yeah, and also embarrassing that it took me so long to realize that it could be my own program causing the trouble.

I'm pretty sure now that the problem was, embarrassingly, caused by an older version of my own program, Multi Photo Quotes.  Installing the latest version seemed to solve it.

I'm away from home this week, but i think i could add a blank item thing to FARR when i get back.

She got amazingly far -- a huge accomplishment.
I feel whenever someone i know participates in something like this is, the real accomplishment is simply putting yourself out there and taking a chance.  Not an easy thing to do. Surely that's a real victory.
Bravo to her.

If im remembering correctly, that setting is now in the HOTKEY configuration page, for a given hotkey.

Website Watcher has always been my favorite.  It is a desktop app designed primarily for interactive use though.  For simply emailing you when a website changes yuo might have good luck with one of the online services.  But Website Watcher is worth a try as it is one of those really great tools.  There are some discussions of this kind of software on the forum:
