I have no intention of trying it, so far. I am merely keeping a copy for some rainy day when I for some yet unknown reason decide to remove Quizo Tabbar!

Here is a link to a really fine instruction by TexHex on how to make Vista faster by using this strange methode. The article is far too long to show here, so you will have to follow the link.: http://texhex.blogspot.co...constant-hd-activity.html

Yes, I know what you mean, they always take one step forward and two steps backward. Aero is great, of course, -and in a few years from now it may be illegal to own a computer without DRM - but at the same time they both stink anyway. I don't think we are heading for better times. But in the meanwhile it may improve the quality of our daily life if we manage to look at the bright side of life... Or are you by accident wearing your little daughter's shoes today? Sorry, Carol, I didn't mean to offend or hurt you. But in Denmark it has been raining all day long - so I guess it must have been raining on the western side of the channel as well.

Edited for grammar.

... "Why do we have to have hardware fives years ahead of its time to run an Operating System?" ...

You are of course right, Carol. But then again: The dream about "today's" OS, now being Vista, was dreamed in the previous century - so MAYBE Bill Gates over-estimated the pace in which hardware would keep improving?

WHY CROSS THE RIVER TO GET WATER?

Sorry - I should of course have passed this info in my first post:


Hum.. Would you be looking for something like Shutdown?
It has a tray menu with a bunch of shutdown options, and if you double-click the tray icon, it shutsdown the computer.

.exe version
.ahk version
... Just run ShutdownNow.exe when your computer starts, and then when you press F12, the computer will auto-shutdown.
Careful, there is NO message, it just forces the shutdown.

ShutdownNow.ahk (0.25 KB - downloaded 12 times.)
 ShutdownNow.exe (196.7 KB - downloaded 13 times.)


I use them both.  thumbs up  Thmbsup

To my poor understanding Vista is totally fantastic. Only problem is, it was made for tomorrow's computers. So if I try to install it on my old shitty snailhardware Vista will seem to fail. But it is not Vista failing, it is my hardware that is failing. Vista is at least 5 years or so ahead of its' time. And in five years from now, Vista wil have been improved so much that we all will say it is The Best, and the successor will stink...

@ Grorgy, I really like your sense of logic!   cheesy

Quote from: L. Hays, P. Seeger and Grorgy
"If I had a BIGGER hammer"

If I had a BIGGER hammer
I'd hammer BIGGER in the morning
I'd hammer BIGGER in the evening ... all over this land,
I'd hammer out BIGGER danger
I'd hammer out a BIGGER warning
I'd hammer out BIGGER love between all of my brothers and my sisters
All over this land.

If I had a BIGGER bell
I'd ring it in the BIGGER morning
I'd ring it in the BIGGER evening ... all over this BIGGER land,
I'd ring out BIGGER danger
I'd ring out a BIGGER warning
I'd ring out BIGGER love between all of my BIGGER brothers and my BIGGER sisters
All over this BIGGER land.

If I had a BIGGER song
I'd sing it in the BIGGER morning
I'd sing it in the BIGGER evening ... all over this BIGGER world,
I'd sing out BIGGER danger
I'd sing out a BIGGER warning
I'd sing out BIGGER love between all of my BIGGER brothers and my BIGGER sisters
All over this BIGGER land.

Well, I've got a BIGGER hammer
And I've got a BIGGER bell
And I've got a BIGGER song to sing ... all over this BIGGER land,
It's a BIGGER hammer of BIGGER justice
It's a BIGGER bell of BIGGER freedom
It's a BIGGER song about BIGGER love between all of my BIGGER brothers and my BIGGER sisters
All over this BIGGER land.

So it have been told already. Well, I never would have thought that I had to read a thread about Mac ads to hear about XP SP3.

Anyway: I just might try this - but I will sleep on it...
Thanks for the advice!
5416  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Are you testing XP SP3 RC ?? on: November 27, 2007, 01:48:07 PM
CyberNet Technology News have been telling about the availability of XP SP3 RC, Release Candidate, so I am of course curious if it will work on my localized (Danish) version. Are any of you guys testing the Release Candidate of XP SP3 ? Do I dare to give it a try on my Danish PC, by changing my registry keys ??

The way to get it:

Quote from: Martin, CyberNet
Update XP to SP3 Release Candidate:

1) Copy and paste the following code into Notepad:


2) Save the file as XPSP3.cmd (it’s important to include the extension).

3) Run the file that you saved in Step 2 by double-clicking on it.
Restart your computer and check for new Windows Updates.

4) Windows XP SP3 should be found, and it is a 337 MB download so give it some time to download and apply the updates.

When all is said and done your version of Windows XP should be:
Windows XP Build 2600.xpsp.071030-1537: Service Pack 3, v.3244

Enjoy the better performance and stability! You can hold off until next year if you want to download XP SP3 when it is officially released.

Oh, so Shutdown can have a dialog?  ohmy

- for what purpose? Is it to ask if I really want to shutdown?  tellme


 Cool
I hit the appropiate hotkey, and XP will shutdown / reboot without any questions asked.
5418  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Quizo QTTabbar on: November 26, 2007, 07:16:39 AM
Yes, I have had that message many times as well. Not just when trying to install Quizo, but in general. When it comes to MY computer, I know the reason is that my pc is unstable. Why you recieve the same message, I cannot know. But one thing is, that I expect you clicked "open" when you started downloading the QT file - that is why it is hidden somewhere strange, I would say. Please download a new file and click "save" - and save it in %Programs%. Only then, you can db'click (unpack) the file.
5419  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Quizo QTTabbar on: November 25, 2007, 07:00:40 PM
If the QT folder is not present in the default %Programs% directory, the installation must have created another directory, starting from C:\ - otherwise there were no installation at all. Well, "installation" is of course not the right word; QT will merely unpack and register. Maybe you should first Search your XP for new files.
5420  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Quizo QTTabbar on: November 25, 2007, 09:48:57 AM
If you have a copy of one of those programs you can use to register DLL's, I would suggest that you start out by navigating to the %Programs% > QT Tabbar > Plugins > File Tools / FolderButton / Memo / ViewModeButton / Window Manager -folders, and try to (re-) register all of the DLLs.

Are you running XP?

Edit: the taskbar icon is to be right-clicked (not that it will do you any good until you persuade QT into working..):

- strange, mouser; I received the link from my boss! But I guess it (: your reaction) is because you are an American, so I will forgive you - and do as you said.
5422  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Finally I tracked down my wife! on: November 24, 2007, 05:47:09 PM
Ohh, I was so worried: Where on the earth did she go? She went off without telling, and for so long I had no idea where to find her. No sleep, wondering all night long.

Finally I recieved an email from a friend, I guess he is, telling about the wonders of some technique in outer space: GPS/GSM Tracking! At first I laughed, "this is not the CIA or Hollywood", I said, "how should I gain access to such methodes?". But then he showed me. "What is the number of your wife's telephone?", he asked, and I told him. He typed the number. Within a minute she was pin-pointed! This technique is astonishing, and it is already available to the public!! Amazingly it is gratis!!!

You really should check out the GPS/GSM Tracking technique, and see for yourself where your spouse is right now! And if you know for sure where s/he is, then check it out for the sake of the technique's geek value!

Seems to be right on the spot, Phil - only, the DLL wouldn't register. 

I will try again tomorrow; by now it is bedtime around here...

But Thanx!  thumbs up

(Edit, 30 minutes later): No, this program does not function on my computer.

5424  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / How to extract pics from a screensaver? on: November 23, 2007, 06:27:13 PM
I have a screensaver with some pictures that I like very much, and with some that I really dislike. Merely taking screenshots of each picture will take too long, and will limit the dimensions to my present screen. So I thought I would ask all of you geniuses: How do I extract pictures from a screensaver? The content seems to be 'hidden' in a .dat file.

Edit: FileJuicer is for Mac, are there any Windows XP equivalent??

1234

I did managed to capture my number 1200, but decided that 1234 somehow was a *nicer* number to celebrate! I almost missed it, but realized by accident that Now was the time, though the content of 1234 actually was sort of a prank:
