Unfinished Requests / Re: UNFINISHED: One word, three dictionaries
« on: February 14, 2011, 09:50 PM »
TheSage is the only dictionary on my computer.

Is there another worthy dictionary to download?

Yes: http://wordweb.info/free/

Living Room / Re: Are "you" "your friend"?
« on: November 20, 2010, 01:31 PM »
To tell you the truth, my intention was not to bring about neither a tongue-in-cheek nor philosophical discussion. What I really wanted to know was whether "Be the first of your friends to like this" is a linguistically and logically correct sentence.

Sorry for my not having been specific enough.

If you wanted to search specific dictionaries then you may be able to cobble something together with a macro to open new tab, then use site:merriam-webster.com word or site:thefreedictionary.com sesquipedalian

The dictionaries I am talking about are software ones, not on-line. As regards the on-line ones I don't need anything better than OneLook.

Living Room / Are "you" "your friend"?
« on: November 17, 2010, 10:30 PM »
Facebook - not without active help of bloggers themselves of course - is peppering blogosphere with millions of thumb-up buttons accompanied by the following sentence:

Be the first of your friends to like this.

Does this sentence make sense? Are "you" "your friend"?

I think it would be even better than my original idea (if I understand you properly).

Unfinished Requests / UNFINISHED: One word, three dictionaries
« on: November 03, 2010, 03:24 PM »
While translating I have almost always at least three dictionaries open at the same time:

Sometimes I have to look up the same word in all of them. To this end I have to put the word into the search box of one dictionary, then of the second one, then of the third one... It would be nice to have the possibility to put the word into only one dictionary and have it automagically appear in all of them.

Edit: The dictionaries I am talking about are software ones, not on-line. Sorry for my not having been specific enough.

If it is not too late, let me suggest David Zidar, the developer of Screamer Radio: david.zidarATgmail.com .

The same thing here. Short-lived was my joy.  :(

ClipStep is almost what I've been looking for for a long time. Thank you very much!
Skrommel, could you please make it capture links copied with "Copy Link" from websites?

Thank you very much. It seems ClipStep is almost what I was looking for. Let's wait for CoMiKe's opinion.  :)

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: An "Alt+Tab"-type clipboard utility
« on: January 11, 2007, 08:53 AM »
CoMiKe wrote at another forum:

What about a clipboard manager where Ctrl+V works in a similar way to the Alt+Tab dialog?
I mean, so that Ctrl+V shows a dialog that remains visible while the Ctrl key is down, and every "V" keypress cycles down a list (or stack) of previously copied elements. And the element is pasted when the Ctrl key is released.


Since this is exactly what I've been looking for without effect for a long time, I took the liberty to post it here on his and my behalf.  :)
