100% agree.

In my case, many times the scheme was simple: Live CDs working flawless but when it goes to install... kernel panic.

He. Once I couldn't get my net working after HDD install and the only help I get was: "Google it, f*n n00b". OK, I did it. After dozen of hours in net cafeterias and many days of trying, the only thing I learnt was that "It is my fault for buying crappy wireless card". Well, it worked under Windows and any Live distro I've ever tried.

As I wrote in previous post: too many nines which drove me back to MS software. It is stupid but many times I felt too strange seeing looks full of disgust from "gurus", after they discovered that I own full-payed version of XP. It is not my pair of boots being somewhere unwelcome.

Wise thoughts but never worked for me. Everytime I've tried to switch there were more than 3 additional points against me which I couldn't pass right.

Why "additional"? Because 9th was always in the air Sad

After few years of trying I don't see the point to change from XP.

I still have an original, fully functional, Atari ST - 1985.
Me too but additionaly I have PONG set smiley

It's just black plank with two controllers. Single controller is just thick stick with looks like microphone with knob.
Oh! There is only PONG smiley

There is good FAQ here and IRRC there should be CHM file in TheBat!'s directory available.

I don't know which version you have but PM to me for 3.x one.

I've made Polish translation.

Few notes about it:
  • "lockDockAtCurrentPosition" should by available in RMB menu for center dock - instead of options only,
  • "browse" (from File -> Icon Associations group) is not used anywhere - there are buttons with 5 dots instead,
  • "ShowLabelsOnMouseoverOnly" (from Labels group) is not shown - "ShowLabels" duplicated instead,
  • ""LocationWord" is used twice (General group and Location group).

I understand.

It might be better to use standard controls for settings imho.
That way it can be easier to alphabetically sort options' groups or at least it can fix strange options' alignments.

This version freezes when I click on any Settings form's titlebar icon (close or minimize).
... but everything is OK for red Close icon.

Any suggestions to get it under 10 megs for download?

Make two different packs for it:
1. CD with few icons and background only,
2. additional "fancy packs" for icons and/or backgrounds.

Isn't it just using some registry hack? Or did you make it working different?

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar]
Value Name: BackBitmapShell

While that program will add the Extension column to Explorer itself, will that also propagate to other applications? I'd hate to download, install and try it just to find out I'm still screwed in Excel et al!
It should smiley
Yes indeed.

I don't think there's a way make explorer show file extension rather than file type - if you right-click the column header you can select which columns to show, but there's only "type". Somebody might have made an explorer extension to handle this, though.

I tried to buy the book but the website stops responding on the order confirmation page... undecided
It is called on-line mousering.

I think I already know what's this book about smiley

So did Typing Assistant cause the flickering? Have you been able to record successfully now? If so I'd love to hear about how well it performed for you.
It's working flawless for almost every game I have but not for Urban Terror. Unfortunately: this game is something I want to record the most. I read about workarounds without success. It is blinking and the movie looks like having 10fps (it's ~70 during the game).

I am really ashamed because I was in rush writing it. I am waiting for mouser to delete my post somehow.

It appeared that it was not the source of the problem. I am sorry once again.

PS The source was Typing Assistant. I forgot to add my games to exceptions.
1018  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: VirtualDub Game Recording Guide on: October 09, 2008, 05:14:50 PM
I had tried descibed solution and found a problem with every game I have installed:
screen is blinking from time to time!

Of course: I've uninstalled every application from article and reinstalled my PC.

Now I am sad because I did not create restore point...

Believe in eternal life and an eternity of singing happy-clappy songs in the clouds - but belief does not make something true.

Not according to Pratchett Wink

Following DW's books: what happens after death depends on your faith. If you believe in Eden - OK. If you want 72 virgins - OK. Even new live can be granted. Everything is up to you and what do you hope for. You can also gloat over tasty waffles for eternity smiley

I've found this idea to be the best one.

"Thinking in ..." books by Bruce Eckel are good choice IMHO.

The book seems kinda of old and information gained in the last 10 years alone has advanced the understanding.

Yes it is old.
I apologise because I thought that you've just started getting knowledge in this area (so I recommended ABC).

AFAIK it is unknown will this force overtake gravity. Scientists think about three possible scenarios depending of this variables' values. Universe will get colder and colder until any kind of live will extinct or someday it will start to shrink and will end with another Big Bang. Or extending will just stops and everything will be balanced.

The answer for this question is not clear because there are too many gaps in science. The biggest unknown is the dark matter (IIRC) and it's properties. I advise you to read A Brief History of Time. Maybe that book will answer some of your questions.
