It was a dig at the size of the download and the fact that x86 versions of (any) programs are generally smaller than their x64 counterparts.

Maybe in the future I need to add more  Grin smiley Cool Wink Sad Angry cheesy tellme ohmy huh embarassed thumb down thumbs up Thmbsup Cry mad undecided Kiss tongue

There's the old Scriptomatic v2.0 tool also:

Scriptomatic 2.0 isn’t limited to writing just VBScript scripts; instead, Scriptomatic 2.0 can write scripts in Perl, Python, or JScript as well.

AutoIt WMI Scriptomatic
Scriptomatic4AutoHotkey
Powershell Scriptomatic
ADSI Scriptomatic

Probably a version for every language ...

  • Some people see 64-bit programs being installed when they chose the 32-bit version, not sure what exactly the difference is

Since x64 versions are usually a bit larger than their x86 counterparts, maybe it accounts for 900MB of the download?

There's also HostsMan.

I've been using the MVPS hosts file for the last 3-4 years on my computer.  Plus my router also downloads, combines, and redirects to an internal pixelserver, hosts lists from:

Size of the blocklist in the router is about 500kB.

Yes/No questions:

1) Have you tried another monitor?

2) Does it only affect the images you have modified?

3) Does it only affect images that are stored on your computer?
     If you answered YES to question (3): Does your image program actually save the modifications to the image, (eg. Picassa doesn't unless you tell it) ?
     If you answered NO to question (3):  Are you sure?

4) Have you tried saving the modified image to a different name?
     If you answered YES to question (4): When the change occurred, did you then compare the original image with the modified image using a program, not your eyes, (eg. Beyond Compare, AntiDupl, XnView, etc)?

5) Have you tried saving the modified image to another format, (eg. PNG, TIFF), as well as the original format?
     If you answered YES to question (5): When the change occurs, does the alternate format image exhibit the same change as the original modified format?

6) Have you tried copying an image you have modified to a flash drive, (then remove it from the computer)?
     If you answered YES to question (6): Did you then plug it into another computer and ensure that the image had been modified?
     If you answered YES to question (6): When the change occurs, did the version on the flash drive exhibit the same change?

7) Have you tried making a large modification to an image, (ie. put "This is a modified image" across the middle of it) ?
     If you answered YES to question (7): When the change occurs, did the large modification also disappear?

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

are you going to back it?

I'd like to but as always, it's dependent on monetary considerations.  I have a EtherTen that's been sitting in a drawer for a couple of years that was for a project I wanted to do but then ... procrastination set in  Roll Eyes

Although the MicroView would fit in nicely with what I wanted to do ... actually more than nicely ... hhmmm ... maybe I'll have to introduce Mr Piggy Bank to Mr Hammer ...

Ruddy heck. Poor you.

Considering that Office 2013 Pro is only 1 CD, this should have been a 50MB installer download at the very most.

Inline with the Win8->8.1 update, yet another FU by Microsoft to anyone with a monthly data cap or a slow broadband connection.

^^ Well, I've been spending some time setting this up in my OneDrive/OneNote.com account, ...

I know what you mean, I thought I'd install it to see what it's like ... it took longer than installing Windows from scratch ... twice.

Over two hours, due to the 1GB+ of download they don't mention, as @rgdot mentions above, and even though I selected, (at their recommendation), the x86 version I find that the x64 version is installed instead.

So, now to remove this bloated piece of ...

English people really need to learn to enunciate better

Is that a widespread matter or is that limited to few cases?

I've found it to be reasonably widespread, (your normal person in the street), I'm kind of used to it now.
My wife, (English), said that one of the things she noticed when she came to Australia was that everyone talked slower than what she was used to. Grin

Back to the OP, dropping the audio into Audacity, reducing speed by 15% and adding a bit of bass made it a lot easier but still the person speaking ran a lot of her words together.

In Firefox I run AdBlock Edge, Ghostery, and TrackMeNot, plus I don't know what else; maybe that's interfering?

I run Ghostery, AdBlock Edge, RefControl, Request Policy, Self Destructing Cookies, and a couple of others - none of them interfere with the Inspector.

The Waterfox official download page only shows 64-bit; but I see they do offer a Portable version which is far preferable to me.
Can I install Waterfox Portable 64-bit on my Win7 32-bit OS?

Waterfox is only x64, and no you can't install 64-bit programs onto a 32-bit OS - unless you do so via a VM (which is beyond the scope of the problem).

Quote
I found a 32-bit Waterfox but it's from Softonic, ...

Only version on there that shows up in a search is Waterfox x64 v18.0.1 ?

Is there a way to just convert my OS from 32-bit to 64-bit, or do you have to start all over and reinstall and rebuild the entire OS from scratch?

A full re-install is required if you're changing architecture, x64<->x86.

BTW, when I've got a million windows open and want to close them all at once, is there a shortcut command for that?

From SuperUser:
Quote
Simultaneously close all open windows:

  •     While pressing the Ctrl key, successively click each of the task icons on the taskbar.
  •     Right-click the last task icon, and choose Close Group.

If you only want to minimize the windows, use the 'Show Desktop' shorcut.

Okay so far that doesn't seem to bring up a link for me in Firefox.
Do you think I should install Pale Moon or Waterfox and try again?
Maybe I should try that.

Works fine here in Firefox 26.0 and Pale Moon 27.0 - so if you're not seeing it you're holding your tongue wrong.

You don't even have to click on the image on a page, just mouse over it and the relevant line in the source will be highlighted in the Inspector window.

Secure SHell client for those that are interested, eg. connect to your Linux VPS, etc.

Re. MH370 - It amazes me that there isn't an EPIRBw mounted on aircraft tail assemblies that:

a) like most boats/ships, start transmitting the moment they hit water.
b) activates on collision.
c) can't be switched off internally, it's autonomous.

You could even make it a bit smarter: it's fed the terminating coords by the originating tower according to flight plan and if the point at which velocity falls below sustained flight occurs doesn't happen within a specified radius of the termination, it goes off.

What use is the f'n flight recorder if you can't find the aircraft in the first place?
