I'm trying to find page-size of PDF's - PDFInfo shows the page size in points** - I found very little info in the Xpdf page - do you know if this can be changed to metric (or anything else) within PDFInfoGUI ?

-meanwhile, "Open with..." > IrfanView > "Ctrl+R" will tell the informations you want. Just treat the pdf file as a picture:


I mean, you don't have to actually resize the file, just read the informations ;-)

Why didn't I know about this application? I'm really surprised I haven't seen it before, it is right up my alley! The simplicity, the spot-on-target, the high quality, the easy use while still very useful. I am impressed!

Well done, Renegade, really well done!  thumbs up

Should there be another version that doesn't rename, but maybe creates a subfolder?  undecided  I know I would go for such a version, because right now I will have to rename the transcoded files.

The normal listed price is $50, so at merely $20 (via sharewareonsale) I think the brand new Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 is well worth the price right now. I use it myself, especially to adjust horizontal misalignments.



-but of course "lifetime" is not the lifetime of the Photo Commander series, but the lifetime of 'your' version 12.

-did you maybe go without the extension? Of course the site can never be as fast as the much simpler original, but with the extension, I thought it was almost fast. I have removed it, because I like the old look.

WikiWand = Wikipedia, But With A Modern Interface

http://www.techsupportale...edia-modern-interface.htm :
Quote from: techsupportalert
Wikiwand (www.wikiwand.com) is a web site which skins the standard Wikipedia content with a much more modern and professional look and feel.  Instead of browsing the online encyclopaedia via the normal wikipedia.org address, use www.wikiwand.com instead.  You get the same content, but with a much better presentation (as you can see from the screen shot below).


There's also a free browser add-in which, the makers claim, allow pages to load around 3 times faster.  But even without the add-in, Wikiwand certainly does do a great job of bringing an internet institution up to date.  And because of all Wikipedia's content is freely licenced, there are no legal issues over copyright.

The extension will per default not install in Pale Moon (=Firefox 24="too old"), but if you force it to install, it will work just fine with PaleMoon as well. We are not too old.


I find it interesting that Wikipedia is not visited - the WikiWand add-on will re-direct the user to the WikiWand site which is simply a mirror of Wikipedia - but with just one click the user can go to the same article in Wikipedia.

modified: Argh, I forgot a central part, didn't I:

An important point of the extension is that every time there is a wikipedia link in Google's search result, the add-on will automatically redirect you to the WikiWand site. Otherwise the procedure would of course be too slow.

I am very grateful for the mirror-userscript "site". It is merely a static picture from the beginning of June 2014, but it is so much better than no userscripts at all. I am especially pleased with KarmaDecay "Reverse image search of Reddit".

Back to what this thread is about. Here is my newest list from Pale Moon 24.5 > Add-ons Manager > Extension List Dumper:

It is working fine, but because Download Statusbar not has been updated for 2½ years, I have now replaced it with been testing the more advanced Download Status Bar, https://addons.mozilla.or...addon/download-status-bar. I'll stay with the abandoned for a while.

Verify Unsigned Device Drivers

    Click Start, click Run, type sigverif, and then click OK.
    Click Advanced.
    Click Look for other files that are not digitally signed.

    In the Look in this folder box, type x:\Windows\system32\drivers, where x is the letter of the drive where Windows is installed.
    On the Logging tab, make sure the Save the file signature verification results to a log file check box is selected, and then click OK.

    NOTE: The log file is named Sigverif.txt, and it is saved in the Windows folder. Third-party drivers that are unsigned are displayed as "Not signed." Use the drivers in this list as your troubleshooting starting point.


The article was about XP, but I can confirm that I have sigverif on Win 7 as well.

Quote from: Zen Magnets
Buckyballs settled their lawsuit months ago. And news of Magnicube's settlement comes today. They're both out of the fight.
Quote from: Zen Magnets
We're at a critical crossroads between two options.

Behind Door #1: Shutdown & Stop-sales.
This makes the most sense from a business perspective. We exit the business as soon as possible with as much as possible, at the recommendation of nearly every lawyer and consultant we've talked to. We comply. We recall. The unique "Warnings don't work" argument goes unchallenged in court. Nobody else stands in the way of the magnet ban rule-making. The CPSC sets the precedent of dodging the most public objection the agency has ever received for any single action item. The CPSC wins it's gamble.

Behind Door #2: All-In for the Conscience.
Fight. Because how others treat you is their Karma, but how you react is your Karma. Because the beauty and wonder that magnets generate is worth a rescue effort. Magnet spheres work exactly as they are supposed to, and nearly everybody (over 99.99%) is able to use them safely. Statistical polls show consumers would rather see a ban of tobacco, than an all-ages nation-wide non-consensual market removal of magnet sets used for art and education. We can sleep without regret, knowing that as the last company standing, Zen Magnets fought for what was right: democracy, reason, liberty, and beautiful shiny magnets.

Nothing rational lies in between these two options, as costs and cortisol levels only go up from here on.


Take this as official notice that Zen Magnets LLC is going All-in, and taking "Door #2" as described. We will not settle for any sort of stop-sale of magnets that are perfectly safe when not misused. The hearing is set for December, and we will see that this influential case goes to trial.

We vow to continue this legal, awareness, and lobbying battle, until our very last drop of cash-flow blood. We will combat the CPSC's magnet prohibition until triumph, or until a glorious death of insolvency on the legal battlefield. At the very least, we'll have one more holiday season of availability.
Magnets must be respected, but need not be feared.

@Curt: How did you find out about that mirror? It seems to have been a little-known item, which always makes me curious.

ghacks: http://www.ghacks.net/201...ts-org-good-alternatives/

userscripts.org seems to just have gone. Well, there are some alternatives.

Are any of you going to edit that wiki.greasespot page, and paste in the "http://userscripts-mirror.../scripts/show/487275.html"-link, please? I don't have an account because I don't understand a fraction of what they are doing, so it ought to be done by one of you guys. ;-)

What a lack of effort. The director is of course not a nincompoop, I hope, so maybe he is a stranger to computers, the Internet, YouTube and such? I mean, the movie he has uploaded is merely 320x240 pixels - I will not watch 81 minutes in such a microscopic format - and the dialogue is all in Dutch and not subtitled!

Who is he uploading for?

Userscripts.org down for good? Here are alternatives:

Quote from: a mozillaZine forum user
I have a number of userscripts in Firefox and noticed that when I went to update all add-ons they was taking 3-4 minutes to update. Turns out it is because userscripts.org site is down and has been down for days. Checking around on the web I found information that the site is officially dead. I've had to change the update url in all my scripts to "about:blank" and now the add-ons update quickly again.

I have removed the old version and installed this up-to-date (July 2014) Roboto font from Google's page http://www.google.com/des...hy.html#typography-roboto

Quote from: Google typography

Since the Ice Cream Sandwich release, Roboto has been the standard typeface for Android. In this version, Roboto has been refined extensively to work across the wider set of supported platforms. It is slightly wider and rounder, giving it greater clarity and making it more optimistic.

Thank you, Ed, for giving the right link for Android users. However, it is not my impression that these fonts will do well in a textual document on a large desktop monitor - they look so awful here, that I already am planing to remove them again.

Also Thank You for writing when push comes to shove; I can't remember ever reading that phrase before!

Quote from: wiktionary
when push comes to shove
English Phrase
    (idiomatic) When the pressure is on; when the situation is critical or urgent; when the time has come for action, even if it is difficult

Normally I hate Google. Mainly because I quite often will want the oldest version  (= the original version) of a file, and Google refuses to look for it. But the Internet includes so many misquotes, and falsified pictures, or stolen material, and if the oldest file not is available, how will we ever know that we are not being lied to? Google is in some areas doing far more bad, than good. Oops! I did it again! Sorry for going astray. I like these fonts, but something about them is not yet perfect.

New York Magazine has an article by a Kevin Roose, named "Google Is Designing the Font of the Future". It's quite interesting, but too long to merely copy & paste - so you will have to go yourself to read it:

It's called "Roboto," and it works on everything.

A Readability page is meant to be printed, or virtually printed = saved as a PDF file => so you should click "Print", not "Save", and print to .pdf!

I am and have been using Readability for some years. Yes, it doesn't always save the pictures, but then I save the picture separately, and in my PDF editor I simply insert a new page with the missing pictures. But as you said, this is a frustrating waste of time.

By the way: The reason pictures are not always saved is, that Readability itself has determined that they are adverts or otherwise not related to the article. So, it is not a javascript error, but the article itself that was not designed in a way Readability could fully understand.
