For those interested in the Arduino, Little Bird Electronics have a Kickstarter project up.

are you going to back it?

so TED does something other than facilitate public forums on random topics?

then there's a certain irony in the latest (?) presentation

Quote
Daniel Reisel studies the brains of criminal psychopaths (and mice). And he asks a big question: Instead of warehousing these criminals, shouldn’t we be using what we know about the brain to help them rehabilitate? Put another way: If the brain can grow new neural pathways after an injury … could we help the brain re-grow morality?

if it's not a folder you use often (and it's not a system folder of some sort) then a password protected archive (ZIP, 7Z, etc) would do the trick, ie move the folder into the archive and only extract it when you need it (updating the archive as needed of course)
104  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: March 18, 2014, 03:22:18 PM
so all this boils down to guilt by association?

TED is guilty because some of it's sponsors have questionable ethics or morals

Speakers (who are in fact guests) are guilty because they participate in a forum?

seems like it mightn't bode well for any of us undecided

if you don't want the overhead of a(nother) addin here's a bit of vba code that will do the same thing

[copy or print]
Sub addlinks()
Dim rowno As Integer, i As Integer
rowno = 2

Worksheets.Add before:=Sheets(1)

For i = 2 To Worksheets.Count
    Sheets(1).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=ActiveSheet.Cells(rowno, 2), Address:="", SubAddress:="'" & Sheets(i).Name & "'!A1", TextToDisplay:=Sheets(i).Name
    rowno = rowno + 1
Next i

End Sub

FWIW that wasn't necessarily a recommendation.  I've used both those browsers but far to briefly to make any sort of comment

be interested to see how it goes for you though  Thmbsup

what about avant or lunascape?

they apparently incorporate multiple engines...
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: February 26, 2014, 12:26:19 AM
Exactly.  Why it's upheld as a forum for exactly that (the cornucopia thing) is more and more beyond me.

probably for the same reason that best sellers are, well, best sellers  Wink

I think that has more to do with the people who are 'extolling it's virtues' than it does to TED itself (perhaps it's a bit like the apple thing...)

112  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: February 25, 2014, 11:48:52 PM
gotta say I think you're going at it all wrong - TED is not a cornucopia of ideas, solutions, or answers to all the worlds questions, it's just people talking.

In some cases they're peddling their political views or some thinly veiled advertisement, other the stories are exciting or inspiring (for any number of reasons). 

But they're just stories.  Take what you can use, and discard the rest

open the VBA editor (SHIFT+F11) and copy to the NORMAL document.

if there's no module associated with NORMAL you can copy the module from the existing file, otherwise just copy and paste the code (then SAVE SAVE SAVE)
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Add a word 2010 function to template on: February 20, 2014, 05:56:26 PM

this sounds interesting - Nucleo

more power, more memory, compatible with arduino shields, and cheap!

117  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: vCard organizer with batch operations on: February 16, 2014, 06:42:39 PM
did you find a solution?
Depends on what you mean by "solution".  I have a semi-automated solution that involves:
--a Mac OSX machine
--two Android apps (not free)
--two Windows programs (one is not free)

The entire setup takes about 15-18 steps for the end user to configure.

so you're not wanting to pursue a solution here?

BTW, vcf files appear to be plain text (I was able to open with notepad++), so with the exception of images (stored as base64) you should be able to do a lot of what you want with a good text editor (or even a find & replace app)

Hehe, if you only knew... Grin

I've installed (and even used) more operating systems than I can remember (not talking about Linux distros, but actual OSs), and every time I happen across any esoteric computing platform, my first thought is whether I can install Debian Linux on it.  I don't know exactly why, but it probably has a lot to do with Debian being my favorite Linux, and the fact that Debian (officially) supports 11 different architectures Thmbsup

wouldn't flagellation be easier?
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone: Choosing between tiny DIY computer kits on: February 05, 2014, 07:35:26 PM
The Arduino is a completely different beast than the Raspberry Pi and it's ilk, which should shape your choice from the beginning.  Don't use an Arduino for something that needs an embedded computing platform, and don't use a RPi if all you need to do can be accomplished with programmable logic.

and some of these should not be confused with compact PC's, ie the RPI/BeagleBone/etc are more like dev platforms than PC's and provide access to a range of peripherals not normally accessible from a 'normal' PC, while CuBox appears to be 'just' a compact PC

Thanks for posting about CuBox, 40hz.  Yet another thing on my "What I wouldn't do for a chance to install Debian on THAT" list. Grin

but why? huh 
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Group two windows so they get focus together. Possible? on: January 28, 2014, 08:45:38 PM
OK, so I've just done a little bit more testing on this and it's looking less and less attractive.

same scenario (excel, bot, and target app), and this time the bot started, but

  • when an excel dialog came up, I couldn't get at it, nor would excel respond in any way
  • the bot started, but the run time dialog (basically just 2 buttons) was outside of the app
  • the only way I could seemed to be able to get my apps back out of the group was to quit taskspace, but doing that resulted in an excel session without any menu bars

I never got as far as extracting any data as I couldn't control what was going on

could be this might work fine for things like editors or browser windows, though the dialog box issue would be a big question mark for me as I suspect any app might suffer from the same affliction

<sigh>
124  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Group two windows so they get focus together. Possible? on: January 28, 2014, 08:01:06 PM
Looks like it only works on 32 bit win 7 Sad

compatibility mode?
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Group two windows so they get focus together. Possible? on: January 28, 2014, 06:05:59 PM
Probably because it parents the window to the taskspace window, and the bot is looking for that window as a top-level window.  But still a pretty cool app- thanks for the info for my needs smiley

that's what I assumed

I really like the concept, it's something that had been in the back of my mind for a while (there's a fair bit of empty space back there...)

Now I'm going to have to do some further testing and report back
