SC has a manual scroll option for the very difficult auto-scrollable 'windows'...
52  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Difficulty with launching FARR when using ` key + focus on desktop. on: March 10, 2015, 10:44:27 AM
So I changed to Alt+Space, which is better as it can be done with the left hand only.
That <Alt-Space> keypress opens the System menu on most Windows applications...

Most treeviews support the Asterisk (*) key on the numeric keypad for Expand all, some have a (context-)menu entry for it.

4. Quick note taking - Simple, may or may not have voice note mode.
Evernote ?
5. PDF reader - Small just for reading pdf files.
Adobe Reader works perfectly fine for me

You'll have to record/create a macro, save it with a proper name, and configure that in your Ribbon, according to the description I linked to. (Here to be even more precise)
57  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Vivaldi, the new Web browser for power users on: March 09, 2015, 02:44:57 AM
I will give Vivaldi a try. I really liked Opera 12, but despise the new O-Chromium with a passion. It made me go to WaterFox and different other programs Never liked the way Chrome and all Chromium based browsers (including the new Opera)sends information behind your back.
But this new Vivaldi browser is using the WebKit/Blink rendering engine, the same as Chrome is using, doesn't that bother you?

I'm sure that there are some people out there that would find Eclipse intuitive! Grin

Oh, don't get the impression that I don't like Eclipse: I prefer it over both Netbeans (a lot) and Visual Studio (any edition from VS2005 to VS2013), it's only the GUI-design part I resent, I'd probably use Delphi 7 for a mockup, and VS2010 for a real GUI-based application.
59  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: is it possible to easily build a GUI mockup? on: March 07, 2015, 10:01:50 AM
I can only see a free trial. Sad
I think the last free Delphi IDE was for Delphi 6, and that's been quite a while. I was assuming that they'd have released another freebee, but they probably can't afford it huh
Maybe the FOSS Lazarus IDE is a viable alternative, but I haven't used that myself.

If only a mockup is needed, then Eclipse is a good choice:

https://eclipse.org
Hm, I beg to disagree on that statement. Building a GUI using Eclipse has always been real close to a nightmare to me.

Unless you have a really good plug-in to suggest for that? (I've used the Swing-derivate WindowBuilder, and compared to VS2008 or later, or Delphi, that's a nightmare, IMHO)

Your other suggestions really make sense Thmbsup
60  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: is it possible to easily build a GUI mockup? on: March 07, 2015, 02:57:16 AM
Download Visual Studio Express or a free version of Borland's RAD Studio and create your mockup with it. You can easily add functionality if needed, in your language of choice, VB, C# or Delphi.

I think the original manufacturer has the best support for this: https://support.office.co...0f-4179-83d3-68a254a80ea6

What Outlook version are we talking about here?
63  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: "Renaming" a Windows 8.1 system that already has Office 365 installed on: February 25, 2015, 02:04:07 AM
Office 365 accounts are coupled to the account that is used to log into the MS cloud where Office 365 resides, not to a specific workstation. I might work on another location/workstation, or a tablet, tomorrow, and I still want/need access to my own files, don't I?

Should be harmless to change the computer-name.

Speaking of which, I have around 20 drives that I need to destroy in the next couple months or so.... and no shotgun!  Cry
A descent hammer will also do nicely thumbs up

Then the bad guys can sign in.  One thing they do is place some sort of malware into index.html, which then
affects future entrants to the site.
That are 2 statements, totally not related to each other.
If anybody, bad or good, can log into your site then why/how do they get to change something like index.html? I've never been able to achieve that, neither as an admin nor as a regular user.
Most webservers require a separate, (s)ftp connection to the server for up/down-loading of website related files. Any account allowed to access that does have proper strength, and because of the assumed required 's' prefix can't be man-in-the-middled, if you don't blindly accept a non-standard/weird certificate (that your ftp-client WILL inform you about).

For absolute foolproof secure client/server connections you need a two-sided certificate-signed 'ssl'-connection (tls is the current connection protocol, ofc.), where both the server and the client need a matching certificate before a connection is even established. The hassle of securely exchanging and then installing the certificates, and the time spent on daily maintenance (adding new certs, and removing expired/lost/stolen certs) usually makes the use of this feature very low-frequent. But, combined with strong, often changing, passwords this system is water-tight.
67  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FireFox = total crap? And Jobs was oh so right about Flash, anyway. NoScript? on: February 16, 2015, 12:13:05 PM
You can change your FF settings to start with the tabs that were open when FF was last 'closed'. Also works nicely if it dies or needs to be killed.

Sure it's not your AV acting up, btw? I tried AVG for a while, and my FF based Pale Moon grinded to a halt after being open for about a day, and nearly eating 100% ram. After returning to Avast I can leave the browser running for weeks without issues.

Oh, and another, well meant, advise: Get rid of Windows XP.
There are no excuses left of keeping that OS in use for internet research (of all purposes mad), that task can easily be ported to an up to date Linux.

Hello there this is really my first time here , so any advice would be helpful
Advice? Just be nice  smiley then read the topic-title, and if you think you have something useful to add, reply. Or ask, if you have questions.

^ I was going to say quite off-topic *and* well worth a new thread, but the thread seems to be already fairly off-topic

+1, combined with the rewritten title and small-essay size post made me TL;DR; (again) huh
70  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Entry: Ballistic: an easy list filter on: February 15, 2015, 12:19:49 PM
Well I can confirm that, the .exe file in the first-time downloaded zip is dated August 2013, not really close to December 2014 when it was first posted, but hey, that's what can happen with NANY smiley
But, as a side-note, Ballistic isn't very Hi-dpi (actually, 125% in Windows 7) friendly, as my screenshot shows:

Oh, and even a sticky-note would live long enough to clean 4 DIMM's (yes, it's normal for the paper to get thorn by the sharp edges of the connector). And I usually have plenty of those lying around.
72  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: RAM contact spray? on: February 14, 2015, 04:24:16 PM
The pencil-eraser _could_ leave some goo when used, and by the time I've found a pencil that has some eraser left, I've walked past the printer half a dozen times... Wink
73  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: RAM contact spray? on: February 14, 2015, 05:41:25 AM
Step by step plan:
  • Take out DIMM
  • Fold a piece of ordinary printing paper
  • Put the fold over the contacts of the DIMM
  • Move the paper a few times with thumb and indexfinger each on a side of the paper in the length of the DIMM (like using it as sandpaper)
  • Voila, Bob is your uncle!

(worked for me for 25+ years in my computer-repair history)

I was about to suggest a NANY 2015 based update thumbs up
