Considering the NSA has back-doored Windows

... and, according to Edward Snowden, every other major operating system, yes.

which "Liberal Party" are we speaking about not listening to?

Any!

(Is there a Pirate Party USA?)

I really wonder how this is related to "OS".

Also, US-American elections are a bad joke. Republicans, "Democrats" or...? I wish the Liberal Party had more influence, but no one votes for them. Why not? Stupidity.

I meant mostly.  Wink
(Admittedly, most tech sites mostly allow it...)
129  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: BrowserID - Mozilla's solution to the password problem on: January 07, 2014, 10:16:21 AM
I like OpenID but I don’t get many chances to use it.

Large tech sites mostly allow a sign-in by OpenID, some board systems added that... well.

Technically, I'm currently stuck between PlanMaker (very fast, very mighty, quite cheap) and Quattro Pro (very, ehm, just mighty). While I have Excel 2013 (for university-related stuff) and LibreOffice Calc (for everything else) on my hard disk, both of them lack a sane user experience.

Too bad that Wikipedia fails to have a real "comparison" regarding actual functionality available.

I usually just add appropriate "display:none" styles to my Wikipedia account's CSS file. Easier to manage.  thumbs up
133  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: December 10, 2013, 05:54:29 PM
There is nothing better than Directory Opus.

This was true until the "Vista-styled" versions were released which look bloated and a bit boring, no matter what you configure.

(Does dired count as a file manager? It is a serious competition to FAR Manager [which I also like as I stated a couple of years/pages ago].)

One tool, one purpose. Now what is the "one purpose" for file managers? Managing files? If so, it's actually sad that Proto development seems to have been halted.
134  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: December 06, 2013, 06:40:42 AM
It's a German version that will not be freely upgradable

Not sure about the language (XY's language files are usually exchangeable...?), but interesting that my work is "freeware" now. Bah.  huh Grin

Back on FARR now. Launchy seems to be dead. Initially I switched due to Launchy's better performance, but that seems to have improved...

Any chance for a better font display on the options window/status bar? It could need more blur.

Uhm. Well...
137  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Musician Lou Reed has died on: October 29, 2013, 05:58:10 PM
edit// there's actually a couple of really nice tracks (imo) on ^that album "Another View"

Yes, but also a lot of boring stuff ("Andy's Chest", "Coney Island Steeplechase", ...). Late VU didn't want to provoke anyone anymore. (Good thing everyone forgot "Squeeze", although I like "Louise" on this one more than some of late '69s Velvets music.)

(Random fact: The last studio recording all four Velvets did together was "I'm Not" from Moe's '91 solo album; finally something that reminded of their 60s work.)
138  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Musician Lou Reed has died on: October 29, 2013, 10:52:01 AM
I love how everyone likes his music now after his death; when he was alive, most people hated it. Hypocrites!

OTOH, Lou Reed will re-enter the charts next month, as always.
139  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Which MP3 tagger do you use? on: September 28, 2013, 01:43:38 PM
1) Yes.
2) I'd recommend Similarity for that.
140  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Which MP3 tagger do you use? on: September 28, 2013, 08:15:11 AM
I switched from the (long dead) ID3Tag to Mp3tag years ago. I tried AudioShell, AIMP's internal tag editor and The GodFather, but none of them worked so well for me. Still, Picard has a reason to live on my hard disk as it can find tags by checking the fingerprint, but for my daily, uhm, "work" Mp3tag might be the best choice.

Does this still count as a mini review?
144  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Mini-Review of GNU Emacs on: September 22, 2013, 08:54:39 AM
Maybe you should report anything that looks strange to you. The development is quite active.
145  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Mini-Review of GNU Emacs on: September 21, 2013, 04:40:20 AM
Yes, especially since you can bind all functions to mouse keys. smiley More flexible than ST once it's done.
146  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Mini-Review of GNU Emacs on: September 20, 2013, 12:03:08 PM
Now that's old. tongue

There's also XEmacs branch for those who have not memorized the Emacs key bindings.

With GNU Emacs 23/24, the differences between those two are almost gone, except for some font rendering. smiley

Multiple cursors by just clicking into the text can be used in Emacs too, thanks to the multiple-cursors package.
148  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Mini-Review of GNU Emacs on: September 20, 2013, 02:13:06 AM
Hmm, interesting. Not sure if this can be (ab)used...
(admittedly, I still can't. Maybe someone else can.)

I have my speedbar as a sidebar (sr-speedbar).
149  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Mini-Review of GNU Emacs on: September 19, 2013, 07:00:54 PM
Indeed it is. This is one of the few GUI add-ons I miss: Emacs does not allow me to code "popup boxes". I could add a rule that opens the helm dialog in a new buffer in the top right corner (similar to what I did with my Gnus configuration above), but just for the sake of it... well, no.

In Sublime Text, when you press Ctrl+P (or Cmd+P on those... what do they call it? "Mac" or somethings), a small box appears in the top right corner of the window, allowing you to open files, jump to a certain function/symbol or line in the current file and a couple of other things.
