I couldn't see myself using an e-reader — thought I'd miss the whole experience of appreciating paper, fonts, page design etc. That was rubbish. My son-in-law gave me a Kobo which I embraced almost immediately. Some months later I tried Cool Reader on my Android phone (of all things). Now I seldom read from any other medium. I still have some treasured printed books to enjoy but for casual reading it's the phone every time. I'm still slightly astonished by this.

All I wanna' know is, where can I buy one?
Act fast and you can pick one up cheaply at the FireFox sale.

I get the white-screen phenomenon on W7-64. I thought it was just my machine.

For me, the blight seems to occur most often in DOpus when trying to scroll fast through panes of directories. Directory sizes are being calculated on the fly. It's not limited to DOpus and sometimes (but seldom) it clears itself.

@Target anything useful in the logs?

Nicely done. Works a treat here  Thmbsup

It's good to see this working in conjunction with FARR, gives it a nice DC feel.

Mouser is down to 20 posts left! All hands on deck to capture Mouser's 30,000th post! Party time!

Have you not realized that he's timing that for December 21?

And, for peculiar reasons of my own, I set a system environment variable that points to my favourite command processor. Then I substituted that variable for %ComSpec% in the script. That lets me keep the native processor as default but have CommandLineHere call that which I prefer.

the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard isn't a bad alternative

Thanks for the tip, I'll keep that in mind.

I would say my keyboard is almost as solid as those IBM keyboards.
Luckily for me I still use Northgate OmniKey Ultra keyboards that I bought somewhere around the early 90's. 119 keys, as good as the day they were bought.

Well, coincidentally, my 'P' key started to stick (probably crumbs or chocolate or something), and so...Washed the keyboard in the sink thoroughly

Good job you rinsed it or you'd have a soap 'p' keyboard.

One for the workshop.

Find the relative angle between two surfaces.
Fast, accurate way to set up saw blades and plenty of other things.

I prefer to take mine to the local stream where the village women do their laundry. I dip it in the current a few times, then pound it on a rock to extract the excess water.  smiley

No, no, no, no!  I said steam clean it!

It was thoughtful and patient of you to document that. I rely on task scheduler a lot for my own alarms, apart from the system requirements  thumbs up

In Firefox the tab says "Haffstreuner watches". Apparently he's the only one who can — either that or he's easily amused.

When I first opened the post and glanced at the screenshot, I thought it was one window at the top that cut of the top bit of another window below it.
I shared that first reaction, finding it quite distracting.

Yeah, but I wonder who's Kissinger now.
