Hello!

How can I specify specific folders or files and mirror them automatically in the cloud?

Unfortunately not OneDrive or GoogleDrive allow you to specify a local directory and mirror it in the cloud!

Thanks!

Hello!

I want to make an autocomplete box to appear when I start typing on a specific text field.

This text field can be any Windows app or Unix terminal. I need to position the autocomplete box just below the text input box and I need to be able to identify the text input box both by its GUI ID but also by its visual appearance and pixels (because there are some text input boxes in Terminal GUIs that are not separately identifiable with a separate GUI ID.

I also need to specify the autocomplete suggestions/database for different text input boxes.

In other way, I want autocomplete functionality in Windows applications that do not have it.

Is there any robust outofthebox solution for this?

Thanks!

Hello

When a webpage loads a stream video, it runs a m3u8 which I believe is a playlist and it runs a file from a link like blob:https://file/1234

Is it possible to get the link of the actual file?

I tried HLS Downloader for Chrome but it seems to actually stream and save the video, instead of downloading it directly.

I want the latter so that I can load many files to download and be able to resume them.

Thanks!

I usually add another group of commands in the Home tab ribbon but this time it displays it as one button that I will need to click on in order to reveal the commands.

Can you tell me please how to fix this?

Living Room / QuickTime messed up everything
« on: November 20, 2019, 11:16 AM »
Hello

I made the mistake to download a video cutter software and it required Quicktime. In the middle of the extremely lengthy install, I cancelled it.

Now, when I click on a map link in Firefox, Mac Maps come up instead of the regular Google.

Any idea?

Living Room / Migrating from Ymail to Gmail
« on: November 15, 2019, 09:10 AM »
Hello

I have been unlucky to have a yahoo email address from many years before gmail and I couldn't do the switch.

Now, everyone ignores my messages due to my @yahoo.com account which is associated with spammers and fraudsters.

Is there a way to migrate from yahoo to gmail without losing any data? I need to maintain records of all my emails, more than a decade ago.

Thanks!

Living Room / How is this old interface called?
« on: November 04, 2019, 07:00 AM »
Hello

How is the legacy interface called of some programs that you run them using TAB, F1, F2 etc keys to navigate to different fields and type text? The whole interface is MS-DOS-like text only with text inputs and no graphics.

How are these programs called?

Also, how do they work? Do they write/read from a file? How is the data stored?

How can we automate them and can we inject data into them by-passing their tedious interface?

Thanks!

Living Room / Android annoyances
« on: October 10, 2019, 08:07 AM »
Hello!

Do you know any solutions to the below Android annoyances please?

1) I very often accidentally switch on the Google Assistant, how do I completely disable or uninstall it? I don't find any value in using it and it has some very basic shortcuts that interfere too often.
2) How can I set the phone not to dim the screen when a specific app is running?
3) How do I set the phone to always mute a specific app? There is an app that has annoying ads that have sound and I want to stop this.

thanks!

Living Room / Windows 10 Versions: Education, Education N, 1809, 1903
« on: October 02, 2019, 03:48 PM »
Hello!

I can download Windows 10 from the university and I am offered the following versions:

Education 1809
Education N 1809
Windows 10 1809
Windows 10 (consumer editions) 1903 - DVD

Which one should I choose? What are the differences? Which is the most 'advanced'?

Also, do I download it and run it as installer to update my Windows 8.1? I do not want to erase anything.

Will it say if my laptop is not compatible?

Thanks!

Hello!

I like the idea of the whole mobile phone screen to be a fingerprint sensor.

However, I read somewhere that you need to click on specific area of the screen and you need to wait for a percentage to go to 100% before you lift your finger.

Is that the case for every such phone?

I want it to work really fast.

Thanks!

Living Room / Monitor Web Usage
« on: June 06, 2019, 09:47 AM »
Hello!

A department at work has several employees and they work on processing files on a sharepoint website.

I want to track how long they take viewing/working on a specific webpage to measure productivity.

Do you know an easy IE plugin to log webpages/urls and time spent on them?

Or could I do that at the network level e.g. with a sniffer or something (I do not have such access though)?

Thanks!

Living Room / How to calculate the area of a graph?
« on: March 05, 2019, 05:51 PM »
Hello

I have this graph and I want to calculate the amount in grams of glucose that is above the straight line of 100mg/dl for the whole period of about 5h.

https://img.medscape...s/gavin/slide021.gif

I think I need to calculate the area of the triangle, but this will give me a unit of mg/dL x hours which does not make sense.

Can anyone advise me please?

Thanks!

Hello!

Shall I assume that Powershell is the best tool to do the above?

I want to copy specific cells from specific sheet in a specific excel document, into a word document, format it properly and email the formatted text to a specific email address at specific time every day.

Is it going to be huge coding to do that?

Can I do all these within MS Office?

Any hints?
