You never know what might develop.

I'm thinking it might be a funeral plan ohmy

Or, why not save a lot of trouble and keep the lens cap in place?

ever tried to put a cap on your wife?

safe to say the result will probably be a negative...

The people who play them are typically people who aren't going to do anything outrageous in real life. With some rare exceptions, people spending vast amounts of time indulging in a MMORPG usually are the same people that might talk big but not actually act on it.

wait a minute, I saw an article on line that said all game players are serial killers and/or mass murderers, lurking in darkened rooms plotting our massacre...

(and there should be enough keywords in that last sentence to get me well up the watchlists  Grin)
104  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA - how to capitalise the first word of every line on: December 11, 2013, 06:24:38 PM
this is a bit clumsy cos I just dashed it off quickly, but instead of entering the text into the script, loop through the files.  

And instead of looping through each line, just work with the requisite strings (should be faster)

[copy or print]
#singleinstance, force
setbatchlines, -1

fileselectfolder, myfolder, *%a_workingdir%

loop, %myfolder%\*.txt,0,1
{
tooltip, %a_index% - %a_loopfilename%
newfile:= a_loopfilename
stringreplace, newfile, newfile, `., _.,all

loop,read, %myfolder%\%a_loopfilename%
{
stringleft, xx, a_loopreadline,1
stringupper, xx, xx
stringtrimleft, yy, a_loopreadline, 1
tmp_.= xx . yy . "`n"
}

fileappend, %tmp_%, %myfolder%\%newfile%
tmp_:=
}

input files must be text, and output will be to a new file ie output from SOURCEFILE.TXT will be to SOURCEFILE_.TXT

FWIW, a review from howtogeek on the pebble - http://www.howtogeek.com/...in-the-smartwatch-market/

listening to all this stuff I can't help wondering how much of this stuff is real and how much obfuscation

disinformation is as powerful as information in the intelligence game...

I just passed on the link in case it was of interest, it's up to the individual to decide whether or not they want to follow it up.

FWIW mostIwant appears to be an aggregate of free offers from other vendors (nothing fishy about that, most 'news' sites follow the same process), and I'm pretty sure chip.de is the site for a german electronics magazine (I don't read german, but somebody here can probably confirm).
109  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: XMAS calendar giveaways... on: December 08, 2013, 04:52:10 PM
fishy? how?
110  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pebble...anybody got one? on: December 05, 2013, 08:45:33 PM
just had a read through the kickstarter page (it didn't occur to me to look there for a product who's campaign closed over 12 months ago) and I can't say I put much store in the comments.  

A lot of it sounded like foot stamping (where's my device? I want it now!!) though given the time lines that's probably understandable.

I also hadn't realised that they were still very new (seems they only started to ship around March?), so pretty much everyone is an early adopter and should be prepared for buggy releases.

FWIW it doesn't appear that the existing competition is much better (assuming the pebble isn't much chop), so maybe this is an area to watch (boom boom)....
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Pebble...anybody got one? on: December 05, 2013, 07:00:52 PM
Anyone here got any experience with these things?  (I expect nudone to be all over this  Grin Grin Grin)

They seem like a nifty gadget.  Not sure whether or not I'd buy one (though it's tempting), but I'd be interested to hear some real world feedback if anyones got any
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How can I find out what is restarting my PC automatically? on: December 04, 2013, 07:09:14 PM
if it was me I'd totally uninstall ALL the video drivers and the associated apps - clean out as much as possible, then shut down and reinstall the bare minimum (have a fish around and you might find an installer for just the video drivers)
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: December 04, 2013, 07:04:40 PM
advents calendar seems to be the promotion being run by mostIwant.

The german page probably doesn't help, but the offers still good Thmbsup
114  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / XMAS calendar giveaways... on: December 04, 2013, 04:38:21 PM
at this site http://www.mostiwant.com/...-calendar-2013-giveaways/

it's been running since the first and I'm surprised no one else has posted about it (someone here put me onto mostIwant).

today's giveaways includes a full version (v13.4) of XYPLORER...
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: December 04, 2013, 04:32:00 PM
BTW, today is Cyber Wednesday, Dec 04, 2013, and you still (13 hours left) can get XYplorer's Lifetime License Pro with a 50% discount at BitsDuJour.

FYI there's also a full version giveaway here (apologies for the 'hidden' url - it was extremely long)
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Does anyone know of a software that can record file modification times? on: December 04, 2013, 12:17:10 AM
how many files, and how often do they change?

is this something that could be polled hourly or every xx minutes?
117  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: looking for MS Word freebie on: November 26, 2013, 12:02:29 AM
libreoffice portable is only 230M for the entire suite, which is probably less than MS word alone (I have it on a usb key), and it's free...

plus you can set it to have a white on black workspace (you can actually choose whatever colours you like)
118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How can I find out what is restarting my PC automatically? on: November 25, 2013, 07:50:06 PM
instead of uninstalling stuff I'd probably use something like Autoruns (portable version here) and disable all the non essential items - you can go back and reenable stuff selectively to narrow things down if this helps.

If and when you identify the culprit then you can uninstall and update/reinstall

119  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: looking for MS Word freebie on: November 25, 2013, 06:14:13 PM
that's not an issue, several of the free suites will work with word (.doc) documents.

FWIW MS has attracted the ire of many users for the 'radical' interface changes between versions (most notably 'the ribbon'...)
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How can I find out what is restarting my PC automatically? on: November 25, 2013, 06:09:37 PM
I had a browse through and didn't see this mentioned, so...

have you tried booting to safe mode?  You probably wouldn't want to work there but as it loads a minimal amount of drivers etc it's a good way to (potentially) rule out a few candidates
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: curious win7 file issue... on: November 21, 2013, 06:16:25 PM
interesting...FWIW I've been using this tool under win7 for almost 2 years and this is the first time I've encountered this

what are the rules around this?  There is a corresponding file at that location, though I'll need to do a little bit of testing to confirm this is the offending black hole.

I'd also be interested to know why that location wasn't found by my file searches (I'm configured to show all files)
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / curious win7 file issue... on: November 21, 2013, 12:27:38 AM
I wondering if any here has seen anything like this - this is a clean win7 32 system that's only just been rebuilt a week ago (don't ask mad)

I have a small scripting tool that I use at work to get data out of our systems, but yesterday I noticed some weird behaviour by windows.

I wrote a script for a colleague, but when I went to send it to him I couldn't find it...anywhere.

I could open and run it in the corresponding app, but it was invisible outside of it.

This morning I went back into the tool and saved it out to a different folder to see if I could see it (I could), however when I sent it to a colleague the file did not include any of the changes that I'd made (and yes, I did save it).  I could open the file and see my latest updates, but the version as received was several iterations behind.

any idea's?

124  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The Open Source debate on: November 13, 2013, 04:44:34 PM
is it possible to run a 'trial' in parallel?  (unofficially even?)

getting others on board before you tackle the roadblock can be a useful tactic, and it gives you an opportunity to speak from a position of authority rather than being defensive
