seems like we might be hardwired to make those sort of decisions embarassed

There's also a book - Predictably Irrational.  Note that I'm not affiliated with either the author or the publisher in anyway

and there's nothing to say that they have to wrap/bundle the original install anyway.  Their 'installer' could just be a middleware (cr)app that calls the original installer from the parent site

I'm a bit surprised this one hasn't gotten a guernsey yet - Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko

IMHO it's a good read and a great resource

at the risk of poking the snake with a stick, still seems like guilt by association to me.

as far as I can see all you've managed to do so far is paint TED black with someone elses deeds.

I'm not defending any of the parties here, I'm pretty sure we all know that many of the big commercial entities are far from paragons, but I've yet to hear anything that indicates that TED does anything other than provide a forum.

Is there an agenda there?  I have no idea, and given the breadth and depth of both subjects and presenters I'm guessing it would pretty hard to see anyway.

meh...

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

are you going to back it?
109  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: March 18, 2014, 05:20:58 PM
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)
111  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

117  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Internet browser that for sure will browse? on: March 03, 2014, 06:12:59 PM
what about avant or lunascape?

they apparently incorporate multiple engines...
118  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...)

119  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)
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Add a word 2010 function to template on: February 20, 2014, 05:56:26 PM
pretty sure you should copy it into the normal.dotm...

this sounds interesting - Nucleo

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

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)
