That's really mean of them Darwin, those 2 logos could never be confused, and unless Apple are now running schools seems to me there is absolutely no way any confusion could possibly occur.  Cranio is right, rotten to the core lol

These people go after grandmothers and children, I would think developers would be just a warm up exercise  Grin

Crippled demos should be labelled as such, if people want to download a movie of how it works then fine, but let the punters know what they are getting!

I think you should ask them for the install disks as well Curt, I noticed you say they aren't included, now would be the time to make sure they give them to you.  and have fun with it, sounds good to me.

Heh, heh, no... more a growing sense of fiscal responsibility, coupled with the fact that I also already own a license for Clickbook 11 that I'm not using as well  ohmy

Whoever has kidnapped the real Darwin should return him now! no questions asked, no ransoms will be paid though!

I find no script to be perhaps the single most annoying piece of software ever to be on my computer, I was forever trying to configure the thing to let me see sites I wanted to see, I gave up, life's too short.

Evernote  will do this.  Hope this helps.
110  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Complaint: Why are 99.999% of all companys' customer service departments broken? on: September 30, 2008, 05:04:56 PM
Because .001% of their employees sneaked a modicum of intelligence through the recruiting process.

But rest assured, they WILL be hunted out and FIRED as quickly as possible!

Yeah a discount would be good, it looks good
112  DonationCoder.com Software / UrlSnooper / Re: Newbie Question 2 - CBS NEWS Test, Need help with results on: September 29, 2008, 04:47:20 PM
I just got the movie out of the internet cache and its URL is  http://progressive.cbsig....h_from_4_3_TV_-_30fps.flv  which I can't open directly but can save from the cache.

There are various programs and add ons to browsers out there that let you look at the cache in an easy way.

I'm sorry, I don't use URL snooper so I can't help directly with that

Yeah, I'm using it too. Hasn't done anything wrong for me, works as you said it would, no need to post except to say thanks  Wink
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The New (And Improved?) VLC on: September 27, 2008, 10:17:56 AM
Yeah I am using windows xp sp3. A new release, a bug fix release (0.9.3) came out today or yesterday, it may solve your problem, then again it may be something else entirely.  Unfortunately their forum is closed during this release, got overloaded so if that doesn't work try there in a few days would be my suggestion.
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The New (And Improved?) VLC on: September 26, 2008, 11:22:01 AM
That file plays fine on VLC here for me.  I've not ever managed to crash VLC even giving it silly files, it wont play a doc or an ini file but it hasnt crashed
117  DonationCoder.com Software / UrlSnooper / Re: Newbie question - How to GET a movie from the URL on: September 25, 2008, 07:59:39 PM
The problem I always have is finding something that will download the file that you want, maybe if you use one of the download managers and put that URL in and see what happens, I get just the blocked or unavailable message when i browse to it, and can download the blocked message as well lol
118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Excellent RSS reader on: September 24, 2008, 07:24:13 AM
Ive tried to use google reader, but it doesnt have what feeddemon has, which is all the posts, as an example i get the feed from majorgeeks, i'll get maybe 1 thing on google reader all day, but go look at the site and their should be 10 or 15, feeddemon gets them all.  I dont trust google reader to deliver.

Playing sports is like taking drugs.

Something you should give up for your health?  Wink

Copying one paragraph from a badly researched wikipedia article is all very well, but at least one of the references the article uses says the the xp firewall significantly improved security, and sure some businesses may not have been ready for it, or the change was not communicated well enough, whatever.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 7 -- ribbons for everyone! on: September 22, 2008, 04:48:56 PM
I really do not understand how being ignorant of what the firewall is up to makes it dangerous.  Seems to me that for even the most novice user then a firewall like the windows one is a little piece of security you can have which takes no work on your part.

That's a good video, what a nice lady to do that  Thmbsup
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 7 -- ribbons for everyone! on: September 21, 2008, 10:01:21 PM
In most of the programs I use with a ribbon you get the option to auto hide it, seems to give me more space than I had before.  It seems a bit pointless in something like perfect disk, but you don't really need a lot of room for it anyway so it causes me no problem at all.  I like the ribbon in office2007 because of the added functionality it has brought with it, the live previews and so on.  Most if not all the commands I ever used are there somewhere and any that are missing I don't seem to be missing.  A quick look in the help seems to suggest most of the keyboard shortcuts used prior to 2007 still work as well.

I somehow sense the feeling that 10 or 15 yrs ago some people would have been saying "These new menus! They won't catch on ya know, what's wrong with just knowing what to type in?"  Times move on, the ribbon will probably disappear at some point and Vista will be looked on as the greatest thing microsoft ever did.

From the number of new programs and sites offering so much I would imagine that for most people the computer will remain a tool, if it doesn't work out of the box, what use is it to them? They want to look at their facebook page, send an email, chat to their friends and sometimes do some research for school or general interest and they will in time go to something that just works, why wouldn't you?  People who like messing about with stuff, well they are another market and a much smaller one.
