IIRC "pervert" simply means abnormal, thus making you square! We are quite some millions using WDS...


I posted to tell that I've found another gratis Searcher, not mentioned before at DC: DK Finder
- just updated today, and here with almost every options displayed:

Hmm... it is really not all the same *fun* to play this version, because I cannot cheat and have the mouse enter from the other side of the screen - the mouse will not let go of the plane. But thanks, anyway, 4wd!


I used the previous version of Instant Storm to make a screensaver from Pink Floyd's Painted Ladies

Rename to .scr No, that was not the way to do it. Here's a zipped version instead:

I just realized that I was nowhere near to be the first telling about QT:

The following items were not listed here (I think) and as far as I know just a few people knows about them:

QT TabBar -- tabs in Windows Explorer and much more

QT Address Bar -- the same page as above -- adds breadcrumbs to WinExp

Startup Delayer -- lets you specify the order and delay of apps running at startup--gives you unprecedented stability of the system, I was hunting for something like this for years

Hotkeyz -- create hotkey for virtually anything, including text pasting and macros, again, invaluable for keyboard maniacs


Thanks for telling, yksyks!  Thmbsup
- and.., ehh.., Sorry! for not noticing back then..  embarassed

I've set double clicking on the tab bar to open a new tab. But it doesn't do anything when I double click.

Your problem is confusing me because it will always do a lot of stuff if I double-click somewhere. My problem was to first understand what is was that had happened. Did you notice that it makes a difference if you db'click on a tab compared to if you db'click on a bar?

Edited: In my setup your action will clone the active tab.

I used a lot of space to tell you that a earlier version of Startup Delayer didn't work for me, so I really should tell that the present version, build 130, is working without any errors at all.


Xion Player from the same company was updated today, and a great audio player it is becomming.

I have taken up Homepage Startup
- with both Maxthon and Firefox.

Maybe *someone* can and will translate this short essay, 'cause I can't:

Quote from: in Danish
Alle, Nogle, Enhver og Ingen.

Der var fire personer som hed Alle, Nogle, Enhver og Ingen.
Der var et vigtigt stykke arbejde, som skulle gøres, og Alle blev bedt om at gøre det.
Alle troede at Nogle nok skulle gøre det. Enhver kunne have gjort det, men Ingen gjorde det. Så brokkede Nogle sig over det, fordi det var Alles opgave. Alle mente at Enhver kunne gøre det, men Ingen indså at Alle ville lade være med at gøre det.
Det endte med at Alle skældte Nogle ud for, at Ingen gjorde hvad Enhver kunne have gjort.

Because of the reinstall restrictions for Vista, I don't feel like I can freely install programs. After so many reinstalls, you have to buy the darn OS again!

Do You Purchase Software on Impulse?

Every program I have (except for Office 2003 and security programs) was bought on impulse
- discounted or not.

A bigger problem may be that I don't actually need all these programs...
5086 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: toolbar with spec character links on: February 11, 2008, 07:38:27 AM
Thanks, jgpaiva.

Why does it have to be an icon? Why can't it be the actual character on the button?

Suddenly I remember why I asked for icons in the first place. I sometimes have to quote in ancient Greek, but too often I cannot remember the difference between eta, theta and zeta (I don't "know" Greek), and others. This is where an icon is ideal because of the tooltip telling me the proper name.

A person I know who is ranked in the top ten is over 900m, and says a volcano is involved. Yes, he has the screenshot of his score to prove it. Obviously there’s a certain way to throw it that will make a huge difference, and not many people have found it.

>900m!!  ohmy  There certainly is more to be found - if the guy was telling the truth:

Iain Says:

There have been a few questions about the genuine longest throw. We haven’t had time to look in the database for a definative answer, but during some testing on the new version (coming soon), we noticed that an accidental test throw of 129m was ranked at 239 globally. We have no idea at this point as to how anyone has thrown further than this even with the technique above but it does appear that some people have gone further than we thought possible (around 120m). We will try to figure this out soon and post back. - Amnesia

"around 120m" - sounds more likely.

ActuallyI don’t think that you can get past 125.999. I am now ranked at 531 at 125.771m. Keep dropping in rankings everyday. I do believe that it is now just the luck of getting the plane in just the right spot when throwing and hitting the keys at just the right moment. good luck Dave 1.

I guess your right me says I just got 125.799 and ranked 71.

# Gary Says:
February 6, 2008 at 1:41 am

Hey “me” that might be knocking you down at he 125.777 mark ? . I can hit it about 70% but since I got 125.802 on Jan 18th and the rank of 44th still holds even playing a couple or more hours a day unable to get passed that 125.8__ M mark but it does keep the mind off the snow out side. Keep playing I know I will til I see #1 Ha Ha.

# me Says:
February 6, 2008 at 3:59 am

Seems like there is a very fine line between 125 and 125.999. I hit it at a high percentage of the time also. Just have to figure out the exact time to release at the end. My reflexes just aren’t what they use to be but I’ll get it eventually. Don’t feel bad if you end up with 125.998 and #2 and I end up with 125.999 and #1

- so not "over 900m" but <126m 
"me" wrote > hitting the keys at just the right moment <, so there must be another cheat:

Quote from: S M
S M says: you have to select ’show all’ when your zoom in on the distance readings when it reached about 124m if you leave it to late it runs onto infinity-ish. The key thing is to exit through the window as high as u can. Start plane at very top left so u can see just the nose, move left the outside the main screen click and release and then move around the outside of the screen. enter on the rhs about 5 red dashes up, if u look carefully there’s a faint white line put the cursor just to the underside, the plane should exit through the window looking as if going to hit the wall above the window. Now the plane is really moving right click and zoom in over the distance read out, i usually place the cursor on the ‘units’ digit right click and zoom until you can see just the ‘tens’ and ‘units’ wait till u go thro the 100 distance and when ur at say 18 ie 114 right click poised to hit ’show all’ when you get to 124 -ish ie u can see 24 click ’show all’ u’ve got to be quick though other wise leave it to late and you fly into oblivion, click to soon and you’ll end up with only a poor score list 123 m or so !!!!
If u go into a black hole - lol just right click again and it select ‘ play’ I’m ranked 25th

- I think this zooming in and out is weird. I won't even bother to try.

"A good throw is 115 meter" - but 114.x seems all I can do:


Downunder they have made a slighty different version, and a good throw is 140 meter:

5090  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful on: February 07, 2008, 05:30:09 PM
Oh, I forgot to tell that the primary reason I installed Firefox again is the program Firefox Preloader which CyberNet News just wrote about. The preloader is from February 2005 but is working okay with both Firefox 2 and 3, and I cannot understand why 'no-one' have told about it before. Of course you might not care for Firefox Preloader if you are running Vista with Superfetch enabled, but on my XP the preloader does magic. Nothing less!

(...) the open source Firefox Preloader. It can be set to startup when you turn your computer on, and with it Firefox will always be at your beckon call. If there are multiple versions of Firefox installed on your computer you can decide which one you would like it to work with.

This feature does come at a cost though. When the preloader first started up on my computer it used about 4MB of memory itself, and Firefox was using about 10MB. Those aren’t drastic numbers, but for those of you conscious about the memory usage you might want to think twice before using the preloader. Also, when you close Firefox it doesn’t actually close all the way, instead it’s just tucked away so that it will still start quickly the next time you go to use it.

Firefox Preloader (for Windows only)  thumbs up

In the end of this post I have a question for you!

... explore Firefox once again.  Only problem is, we all know it takes at least 10 extensions to achieve the features of an Opera or Maxthon.  Ok, so be it, I'd like to ask everyone of their favorite or most useful/powerful extensions...

After a long brake I have taken up Firefox again.

Two of the many things I like about Maxthon 1.6 ("Classic") are 1) the Maxthon Start Page which gives me my recent favourite links at once, and 2) the extra toolbar with shortcuts to programs of my own choice.




All Customized Links is an "okay" substitute for half of the Maxthon Start Page, so my biggest problem with Firefox is that the only add'on I have found that comes close to the toolbar for "fav progs" is Launchy, and the author gave up updating this program two years ago, even though I think it still needs a lot in userfriendliness. The prime feature of Launchy is still working fine, but it is a nightmare to add links to other programs if you are not a coder. And it is for such a feature, links to other programs, I became interested in the first place.

So I came here to ask if 'you' know of a program / an add'on that will add such a feature to Firefox, making it easy to reach my favourite programs from the inside of Firefox 2, please?

How does DMEXBar stack up against Quizo (or should it be the other way around)?

For me it was not a question about one or the other, but if they can live together. I saw a few features in DMEXBar that would further amplify Explorer beyond what QT already does - if they would just cooperate.

Quote from: DMEXBar changelog
Version History:

Because of public demand I will try to add a version history, here. This may be incomplete. There are always quite some bug fixes. These I do not mention.

Version 12:

- Destination directory menu for file commands contains list of other explorer paths.
- Attach explorer window function (Two aligned explorer windows behave the same way when minimizing, restoring, closing and activating).
Choose "Attach..." for any of both aligned explorers.
- File filter. View only files in Explorer matching a file mask.
Enter a file mask and choose "Filter files". The input filed is shaded blue to remember you that not all files are shown.
- Grip to move DMEXBar toolbar to the left in case not all buttons are visible.
Move the grip to show buttons which moved out of the window to the right.

- Enhanced standalone synchronize tool.
  Look at the file "sync-example.sync" to study all options.
- DMEXFav and DMEXDir toolbar backgrounds are themed.
- DMEXFav has enhanced drag & drop and managing functions.
- DMEXDir has a drop down menu on the right side to go to the last visited directories (history).
Left click on the dot in the DMEXDir toolbar.
- DMEXDir has right click subdir menus for each of the buttons (only if not flat toolbuttons are used).
Right click on any of the directory buttons.

- Viewer allows Drag & Drop of files.

Version 13:

- French translation
- Enhanced standalone synchronize tool by adding awizard to create synchronize files for automation. Run Sync.exe.
- Transporter tool and "Transport to..." command.
- DMEXDir and DMEXFav enhanced.

The one at Simtel is now version 13, so briefly something did happen!
5094  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Quizo QTTabbar on: February 06, 2008, 01:57:24 PM
... now if someone would just come up with an explorer extension that let you have dual pane view...

I cannot offer you genuine dual pane, but two panes... ehh... two windows!

Today freewaregenius told about DMEXBar [click to read].

[attachurl=4] << FreewareGenius' Review.txt



hmmm..: why did the screencapture loose the text? I swear: it was there! But I am not going to reinstall the program just in order to show these options - sorry!

And now I should display the picture of two alligned windows but I cannot do so, because DMEXBar didn't work in my Quizo'ed setup. I would sure like [hint] 'someone' to test if the problem is my XP only or if QTTabbar and DMEXBar just cannot cooperate [/hint]. But at least DMEXBar is said to be working okay in a normal Explorer.

Unfortunately I think you can only find DMEXBar at the somewhat deranged SIMTEL:

The program has not been updated for more than a year, and thus may be abandoned.
