Right-click on a blank spot of the toolbars and go to the Toolbars item or Settings->Customise->Toolbars.

Is there any way to make its look&feel more DOpus-9-like? Less giant bars, less context menu bloat design, less everything?

Load whatever toolbars you had set up from v9 and close the default ones - that's what I've done and it looks pretty much the same as v9 did.

This is just about the dumbest procedure I have even seen.  thumb down

Actually, the dumbest is having to email an author/company with your license details in order to prove you're eligible for an upgrade and then twiddle your thumbs waiting for a reply.

GPSoft tells you immediately - easy and quick.

and what is this with placing C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopusrt.exe to always start with Windows? I can't even delay it! I am already beginning to hate this program!

It's so when you double-click on the Desktop a lister will open and it's also used for running commands.

Nudel can probably answer better but I think you can stop it from running at startup and use the right-click on the Desktop to open a lister.

And it's been like that since v9 came out, IIRC, so for 4 years.

And just for interests sake: AU$78.10 for 2 licensed copies + USB + SFTP (that's including 10% GST).
1904  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Easiest laptop (brand) to take apart ? on: April 26, 2011, 05:55:22 AM
I own two Acers: a laptop, Travelmate 2210, and a netbook, Aspire One ZG5.

The laptop is easier to disassemble and access all components, pretty much the same as the picture in a previous post.

The AAO is bordering on a nightmare to disassemble and access components but can be done with care, (I've done it 3 times for modding).

Even though the laptop suffered a malfunction just after I bought it, it was repaired and hasn't had a problem since - I've changed the CPU in it, (shows you how old it is - 2005), and upgraded the HDD.

I'd still buy an Acer today because the reasons I bought it are still valid today: price and more importantly, (for me), a real International Warranty.

It can be done in AutoIt by catching the WM_EndSession message, for example.

I'd have a crack at it but I'm currently mobile in the UK - maybe in a week or so when we're settled in our Yorkshire abode and I'm bored silly.

by the way, I just have to say, my favorite part of this whole thread is being able to follow your thoughts as you describe the process.  I love it.  I can see how you are coming up with your ideas, and how you work through them.  Thanks.

Does that mean I could have just told you what might be happening without actually doing or writing anything ?

I'll have to remember that for next time......

Maybe choose to pay in Russian Rubles, (149.00 RUB), which works out to almost half the cost of other currencies.

eg. RUB149.00 ~= US$5.27

Most likely exchange transaction fees are being added for other currencies, eg. AU$ is currently higher than US$, (AU$1 ~= US$1.03), but it would cost me more to buy in AU$.

The exchange rates and fees your bank charges for international transactions may be less than they get charged, (that they pass on to you).

For those who may have USB Safely Remove and want a better deal than normal to upgrade to Zentimo.

Quote
Dear USB Safely Remove user,

Only until April 5th we are offering you a unique opportunity to migrate to Zentimo for as little as $8.90 USD!

Haven't heard of Zentimo, yet? Zentimo is an advanced external drive manager also developed by our company. Comparing to "USB Safely Remove" it offers more benefits for active
USB and SATA devices users: more informative device menu, portable device settings, portable apps launcher, TrueCrypt integration and many other features.

More information about Zentimo & this offer is here:

That's a news one with the parrot owner talking about it.

Please note, you are confusing tripe with news - aca, (A Current Affair), has not been associated with real news content for more years than I care, (or can), remember.

News programs in Australia exist on two TV channels only - SBS and ABC.

Thanks. That looks cool, but I'm using uTorrent 3.0 (Falcon).

I only mentioned it because a lot of private trackers only allow versions 1.8/2.0.

1917  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Block/Unblock all network traffic button (one-click) on: March 30, 2011, 08:15:09 PM
Right, last attempt before I head off OS - if something doesn't work properly you'll have to wait a while longer.

v0.28
Added All Interfaces back.

NOTES:
  • Status of the interface(s) is checked five (5) seconds after the toggle event, so don't expect the tray icon to change immediately.
  • If All Interfaces is selected then if any one (1) of available NICs is enabled then the icon reflects this state irrespective of that NICs connection state, connection state != device state.
    eg. If there is no cable plugged into the NIC port but the device is enabled then the icon will be green.

There was no easy/reliable method to check for a LAN connection so I've defaulted to only checking device state.

EDIT: I might change it so that a different colour icon is displayed if there's a mix of (dis|en)abled NICs.  A nice muddy brown for instance.

uTorrent Remote - Allows you to add/remove/manage your torrents remotely. I don't torrent often enough to really use this, but it's nifty.

If you're still using uTorrent 1.8.x or 2.x you might be better off using the MiniUI - takes up no space on the phone, just access via browser.

This works!  Awesome thumbs up 

Thanks!

I have tried it out and it works great.  The only improvement I can think of for it would be to also recognize email addresses that are linked, but I am happy the way it is!

Stupid me, mailto addresses don't have // on the end, just edit it to change:

var re_mail = new RegExp("^mailto:\/\/");

to:

var re_mail = new RegExp("^mailto:");

and that should take care of it.

Nice work, 4wd.  Well done.   cheesy

Well, I wouldn't call it exactly 'nice' since I don't know if Element type of 'text' actually exists, that was just a guess on my part.  When it worked I stopped looking for the 'legal' method  Grin

Thanks skwire.

After a little fooling around with GreaseMonkey and some outright butchery of a few userscripts, I've come up with something guaranteed to turn any sane website into a masterpiece of confusion.

Using the AutoHK site you gave above as an example, you'll get:

[attach=1]

Formatted for Javascript with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. // ==UserScript==
  2. // @name          TextLink
  3. // @namespace    
  4. // @description   Append text link after clickable link
  5. // @include       http://*
  6. // @include       https://*
  7. // @exclude       http://192.168.0.*
  8. // ==/UserScript==
  9.  
  10. var links, link;
  11. links = document.evaluate(
  12.   '//a[@href]',
  13.   document,
  14.   null,
  15.   XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE,
  16.   null);
  17.  
  18. var re_http  = new RegExp("^http.*:\/\/");
  19. var re_mail = new RegExp("^mailto:");
  20. var re_ftp = new RegExp("^ftp.*:\/\/");
  21. for (var i = 0; i < links.snapshotLength; i++) {
  22.   a = links.snapshotItem(i);
  23.  
  24.   if(a.href.match(re_http)) {
  25.      newDiv = document.createElement('text');
  26.      a.parentNode.insertBefore(newDiv, a.nextSibling);
  27.      newDiv.innerHTML = "&nbsp;[" + a + "]";
  28.   }
  29.   if(a.href.match(re_mail)) {
  30.      newDiv = document.createElement('text');
  31.      a.parentNode.insertBefore(newDiv, a.nextSibling);
  32.      newDiv.innerHTML = "&nbsp;[" + a + "]";
  33.   }
  34.   if(a.href.match(re_ftp)) {
  35.      newDiv = document.createElement('text');
  36.      a.parentNode.insertBefore(newDiv, a.nextSibling);
  37.      newDiv.innerHTML = "&nbsp;[" + a + "]";
  38.   }
  39. }

Save as TextLink.user.js - unless you have another called that, in which case save it as something else and change the name on the @name line.  Then just drop it on the Firefox window, if GreaseMonkey is installed it should recognise and install it.

I've only tested it on a couple of sites and I have no idea if what I've done follows Good Programming Guidelines but hey, what do expect for 30 minutes of completely unintelligent, uneducated keyboard tapping.

I'd recommend you leave it disabled until you're on a site you want to copy text from, then enable it and refresh Wink
1922  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Copy selection on webpage as text with text hyperlink URL's and ASCIIart on: March 28, 2011, 05:34:12 PM
This sounds like an idea that might benefit more from using a GreaseMonkey userscript, ie. change the actual web page so that it looks the way you want to paste it before you copy it.

I've tried Dolphin HD once but found it slow compared to the stock browser.

Just tried Dolphin and I like it better than the stock browser, a lot easier to use, speed is about the same - thanks for mentioning it  Thmbsup
1924  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 24, 2011, 12:53:14 PM
Wow. You all really use all that?

I've abandoned a lot of software because my carrier's network is so bad.

Well, you did choose arguably one of the most forked 3G networks in Australia tongue

Lesson #1: Never, ever buy a locked mobile in Australia. (Or don't buy where you're locked into a contract.)
Lesson #2: The lower the frequency, the better the solid object penetration.

eg. Telstra: 850MHz everywhere + a lot more towers.
      Optus/Vodafone: 900MHz Rural & 2100MHz Metro (Although they are starting to install 850MHz - bit late me thinks.)
