76  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recommendations for project/schedule management software (besides MS Project)? on: July 07, 2007, 02:37:04 AM
Probably not quite what Superboyac had in mind, but does anyone know of free project management s/ware for construction i.e. building a house?
AccuPlan looks OK, but not free. I had a go at Open Work Bench - found it too hard to learn OOTB and its forum is clogged with spam.
77  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Outlook 2007 - a rant on: June 06, 2007, 10:14:40 PM
On a related note, another thing that was made clear while Office was in beta is that Outlook 2007 can import pst files created in 2003 and earlier, but pst files created/updated in Outlook 2007 can not be exported back into Outlook 2003. I am SO glad that I caught that before blithely migrating everything into the beta, which is what I had planned to do!

I wish I'd known this before I blithley upgraded to Outlook 2007. The reason being that when I wanted to confirm that .pst backups were occurring correctly (in Outlook 07) I tried restoring the backup. As you may know this process opens the backed up Personal Folders below the current Personal Folders. Whenever I attempt this process the computer freezes and I get the error message "this program is not responding". Now I live in fear of losing all my precious Outlook data & I can't go back to 2003.

Rather than dragging to enlarge try clicking on the "maximise/minimise" button on the top right hand corner of the screen(middle one of the three).
Or try asking at one of the many PC forums. I've found them helpful in the past.

Steeladept, Thanks for the link to htmldog. I found it helpful too.
81  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How do you backup your files? on: April 25, 2007, 09:56:36 PM
I'm using File Hamster to a rack mounted HDD (I remove it and take it with me when the house is unattended) and XX Clone to a HDD in a box which I keep off site and update monthly i.e. do a new clone. I use XX Clone specifically as it will let you clone to a smaller drive (assuming the source drive's contents aren't greater than the drive being used as the clone) this is handy as my back up drives are just ones which have been superseded as I've upgraded the C drive.
I'm pretty much at the novice end of the scale here and so this question may seem a little dumb/naive. Over Easter the MoBo on my PC died on me - was I glad of those back ups as I had to do a clean install with the new MoBo.
So the question is this - is there an easy way to re-install all your programs onto the formatted C drive? I naivley thought it was done from the clone, but it wouldn't work so either I was just wrong in that assumption or I was right, but not doing the process correctly.

I can see that the idea has triggered a little peak of interest.  thumbs up Thanks, cthorpe, for the links. Those researchers are on the right track in terms of what my partner wanted to do, but really all she wanted to do was be creative and have some fun - I don't think she was going to make a career out of it.
84  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Drawing with 2 mice on: March 06, 2007, 07:11:15 PM
My ambidextrous partner is interested in exploring the potential of this trait. She wants to know if it's possible to have two mice (pointing devices) operating simultaneously so that she can "draw" two images at once i.e. using both hands to create different images on the same screen in something like Adobe Illustrator.

Thanks,
Clive

I use MediaMax (was StreamLoad when I subscribed) as a backup service (3rd layer) mostly for images. Various issues mentioned in the review don't really affect me as I hope to never need to download files.They were very helpful & responsive to my enquiries when I had some set up problems at the start which impressed me.

Mouser,
The collective brain has been of great assistance to me either solving a problem directly or pointing me ,often unknowingly, to a solution.
A salute to everyone who takes the time to post & to you for the your dedication to your ideals.

I've just been going backwards through the Best of Blog and am wondering if it would be possible to have page links e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4 etc rather than "read older"? There's lots of stuff back there that I'd like to catch up on, but it's a bit tedious always having to start at the newest (on each visit, not session)and work slowly back.

Thanks,
Clive

89  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / System Idle Process Using 85% of CPU on: February 07, 2007, 05:41:13 AM
Hi Everyone,
This may be one of those newby questions that only the hopelessly naive would ask, but please be patient with me.
I recently installed a HIPS program called System Safety Monitor. It has the ability, like Process Tamer, to show what processes are running and the percentage of CPU being used by each process.
I was alarmed to see that something called System Idle Process was using between 65 & 85% of the CPU and this was when everything else was ticking over at 1 - 3%. SIP doesn't appear in the PT process list.
Is there really something in my computer using so much of the CPU or do I just not understand something simple which everyone else knows about?

Thanks,
Clive

The "Guy" (Tony) was very helpful with the problem I posted about here: http://www.donationcoder....ic=7085.msg49679#msg49679. He responded lightning fast to my request and solved the problem with 2 emails.
Thanks Ham Radio for pointing him out to me.

Here's part of the page including the quotes and the table format - hope that's what you need.

<table style="text-align: left; width: 718px; height: 167px;" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr><td style="text-align: left; vertical-align: middle; width: 184px;"><a href="SD_1.html"><img title="Click to go to SD 1 page" style="border: 0px solid ; width: 180px; height: 118px;" alt="Singapore Deep 1 One Bedroom FSC Accommodation near Wilsons Promontory" src="SDOne011b.jpg">[/url]</td> <td style="width: 315px; text-align: center; vertical-align: middle;">&nbsp;<span style="font-style: italic;"></span>
<script><SCRIPT LANGUAGE= "JAVASCRIPT"><!--var r_text = new Array () ;
r_text[0] = "My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Singapore Deep. It was just wonderful to go and recharge the batteries. We loved the view of the bay. Laura";
r_text[1] = "Wonderful couple of days,
you should be very proud of your setting and service. Many Thanks, Peter";
r_text[2] = "We had a really lovely 1st anniversary staying at Singapore Deep. We loved the wide sliding doors over looking the water. Sarah";
r_text[3] = "Margaret - thanks again for a wonderful 4 days at your retreat, it was great to meet you. Simon";
r_text[4] = "What an unusual and pleasant two days Paula and I enjoyed this week at Singapore Deep. We were very impressed indeed, not only with the architecture and view but with the cleanliness and high standard of fittings, equipment etc. Ian";
r_text[5] = "Just wanted to say thank you for providing such beautiful accommodation in SD1. We have just had a lovely weekend there enjoying the stunning view and feeling completely relaxed.
You provide just the right combination of privacy and luxury to make the whole experience a joy. Leanne";
r_text[6] = "I would like to let you know that my husband and I had wonderful day at Singapore Deep. We loved the seclusion and the gentle view of the bay. Laura";
var i = Math.round(6*Math.random());document.write(r_text);//--></script></td><td style="vertical-align: middle; white-space: nowrap; width: 175px; text-align: right;"><a target="_blank" href="SD_2.html"><img style="border: 0px solid ; width: 184px; height: 122px;" title="Click to go to SD 2 page." src="SDTwoLHview52WA07a.jpg" alt="Singapore Deep Two - 2 bedroom FSC accommodation" hspace="120">[/url]</td>

The array, etc is based on an example I found on the web. It doesn't have any code to link it to the blank space in the table.
93  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Place randomly selected quotes in a specific box on a web page on: January 20, 2007, 02:13:46 AM
I've made a very simple web site for our business - an electronic brochure really. I used Nvu, as I have no coding experience, and based the pages on a CSS template provided by A. Viklund.
Over time we've had some nice thankyou messages from our customers and I incorporated a couple into the site. The other day I thought it would be neat if the quotes changed everytime the home/index page was loaded/refreshed. I did a bit of searching and sure enough plenty of other people had thought of this before me and written some code. The problem with all the code I found was that there was no way to locate its action on the page just where I wanted it.
On my site's home/index page I have a three column single row table with a thumbnail in A1 & C1 and I want the quote to appear in B1.
Is this request worthy of someone's time? If not some gentle nudges in the right direction would be gratefully received.

Thanks,
Clive

I too hope for a shredder that will shred individual files in the recycle bin.
Whilst we're on the topic of shredding - how about e-mails? None of the searches that I have done, for shredders, have ever turned up an e-mail shredder and surely there are sensitive e-mails that many people would want to shred as much if not more than their files.

Excuse me if this is a bit "off thread", but is there a way of preventing icons of software that you want to leave permanently running from appearing in the tray? Or perhaps flashing up during Start Up (like the warning lights when you turn on a car's ignition) and then disappearing?
97  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ITSD Organiser (Organizer Officially I guess..) on: December 18, 2006, 05:45:49 AM
Here's another possibility (also free for personal use)http://www.abassis.com/index.html
98  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ITSD Organiser (Organizer Officially I guess..) on: December 17, 2006, 08:17:40 PM
Have you seen Open Work Bench www.openworkbench.org? It's freeware and claims to be a project manager.
I was looking for something that would be useful (I'm thinking of having a house built) and that would not only help with the planning but also keep track of expenses - over or under budget with various trades, etc.
I've downloaded and installed it, but it's a bit too arcane for me to use straight from the box. You may have better luck with it.
The forums are hopeless for Open Work Bench,IMHO, as they are clogged with spam.

Hi Everyone,
I'm not in the same league as some of you guys - just a general everyday end user, but I use and prefer LookOut for my indexing and searching of Outlook and other files. It doesn't have continuous indexing, but I found that it would find things that X1 wouldn't. Anyway, just my 10 cents worth.
