General Software Discussion / automatically restart in Safe Mode?
« on: March 01, 2011, 05:47 AM »
The question is in my head & I am asking for education from my friends at DC.
Sometimes I am troubleshooting a problem & would like to restart in Safe Mode. Is it possible to add a selection to the shut-down options to "restart in safe mode?" or is it an action that happens so early in the process that it cannot be controlled until Windows is truly running? like at root level...
maybe the ability to hold at the screen where one chooses options, like safe mode or with networking...
Or is it something that only Windows developers could include in their OS?

DcUpdater / is DC updater only for FARR?

Living Room / WISH LIST - Medic Alert app on phone
« on: March 11, 2010, 08:17 PM »
Medical condition that means I might need to contact EMTs immediately. I wish I had an app for my Palm Centro that would call local # & play my pre-recorded message & a prominent link on phone desktop for medical information document. There is one for PC phones but not for Palm. Anybody know of one? 

General Software Discussion / Windows 7 evaluation
« on: May 29, 2009, 07:27 AM »
Just for curiosity I loaded Windows 7 evaluation on a machine a few days ago. Since I don't have Vista on any of my machines it has been an interesting learning curve.
So far I don't see compelling reasons to switch from XP. I don't watch TV or movies from any of my PCs.
Anyone else have experience with this? Are there lots and lots of under the hood reasons it is better?

Skrommel's Software / IdleRun & LacunaLauncher
« on: February 07, 2009, 07:42 AM »
For a couple of days I have been running IdleRun and LacunaLauncher together. Slick!
After Windows is settled down, IdleRun starts LacunaLauncher which then loads FARR & Synergy.
I really like this combination of apps!

A while back I lost my AC adapter for laptop & bought a universal adapter/charger. I have recently learned that sometimes these gadgets overcharge & ruin motherboard. I would like to see a utility, small like a widget, that would tell me the incoming voltage while it is attached, maybe even compared to what the laptop should have. I did a brief google search & don't see that there is one available. Can it even be done?

Find And Run Robot / EAS violation
« on: March 02, 2008, 06:18 AM »
One of my computers suddenly refuses to run FARR. The message is "EAS violation"
I have un-installed & re-installed & run extensive maintenance on both OS & HD. Still refuses to run.
XP pro SP2, 512 RAM

Find And Run Robot / programing mouse buttons for FARR
« on: February 25, 2008, 09:06 PM »
I am trying to program a mouse center center button (wheel) to open FARR. Can you tell me the instruction? pointing to .exe starts a new instance. in the keystroke mode, it only accepts modifier (alt, cntrl, etc) & a standard key.

Find And Run Robot / Thanks for "edit box height"
« on: August 10, 2007, 07:26 AM »
I am just venturing into the advanced configuration settings. I like to set programs to use larger fonts, which usually results in exceeding the size of the box. Under the tab "Plugins, Update, Fonts", you have not only made it possible for me to go WAY up on the font, you also allow me to grow the edit box size.

Thanks for this feature!


Skrommel's Software / IdleMute will not load
« on: March 25, 2007, 02:11 PM »
I just put IdleMute on two of my machines. On one, an older machine (XP Home), it works perfectly.
On my development machine(dual processors, lots of power-XP Pro), instead of running, it gives me an error message. It is hard as the dickens to get the message box to go away.

General Software Discussion / I need a simple CAPTCHA program/script
« on: February 20, 2007, 05:21 PM »
I'm wondering if any of the Donation Coder family has created a CAPTCHA code that is easy enough for this old guy to cut & paste into my website.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: an easy hotkey for KVM switch
« on: January 13, 2007, 06:20 PM »
So I downloaded AutoHotKey & thought "this seems learn-able"; now I have a headache & an urge to sample the single malt scotch my kids gave me for Christmas. :-[

My KVM switch requires pressing three simultaneous keys, Ctrl, Alt & Shift then pressing a number, then pressing Enter. Only after all that have I accessed another computer in my network.

I would rather have a easier macro, like maybe the Win key simultaneous with a Number Pad key.



When Windows starts, we see the desktop, making us think we can do something, when, in fact, all the "cagata" in the startup folder is still loading. Can you give me a green light to say "startup is finished now; get on with it!"
Of course, a display with a "gas gage/speedometer" indicator would be nice too.
