Find And Run Robot / Re: always show plugin results
« on: March 07, 2012, 04:50 PM »
yes, but if i do that, i won't have my launchpad function, right? just the tabs.
i don 't have enough buttons on my mouse to have both binds, and if i have to choose, the my favourite programs win out. meaning i'll still prefer to use that, and the taskbar to switch between programs.
or is there a way to show my favourite programs while also showing the results from farralttab?

as an aside, i was sure i had a way to summon farr under my mouse before the reinstall, i can't seem to find that function now. am i blind or just poor of memory?

Find And Run Robot / always show plugin results
« on: March 07, 2012, 04:09 PM »
i'm looking for a way to have farr always show the results of FARRAltTab. this way i could do away with the task bar completely (except for the rarely used systray).
FARRAltTab is a nice enough switcher, but the convenience of invoking farr and just click on a running program would be great, typing in tab adds another hurdle. i've already given my favourite programs a huge boost in score so i already have a basic launch pad for my programs, but i'm missing a way to quickly switch tasks. i've bound farr to a hotkey on my mouse, and if i could automatically display the results of FARRAltTab, i'd have everything within easy reach.
is there any way for farr to automatically display the results of a plugin without having to type in the keyword first?

Find And Run Robot / FARR and history
« on: November 13, 2010, 06:55 PM »
could be that i'm just very very stupid, but i can't find of a way to make farr show a list of (designated) favourite apps rather than history.
is there a way this could be done?

basically what i'm looking for is a way to combine the qualities of farr with some of the utility of say circle dock, having a set list that doesn't change no matter what i use, until i insert something in the input field.
i know there's a toolbar in farr, but it seems to only allow textual links, not icons, and i can't resize it to say 32x32. it also takes up space in the same line as input, so putting say 5 apps/folders there makes the rest of farr pretty much unusable.
i've thought about binding circle dock and farr to the same hotkey, but figured that just wouldn't be practical.

General Software Discussion / Re: automatically sort taskbar
« on: August 16, 2010, 04:46 PM »
curt, thanks, checking truelaunchbar now.

cmpm, that's what i've got right now, though positioned at the bottom (prefer my running programs as high as possible on the bar), what but with the quicklaunch i still have a couple of duplicates.
for example, if i have firefox running, i still have the firefox button in the quicklaunch, wasting space. with one app that's not much of a problem, but if you're running a slew of apps at a time, that's quite a waste.

General Software Discussion / automatically sort taskbar
« on: August 15, 2010, 07:27 PM »
does anyone know of an app that sorts the windows (7) taskbar?
right now i've the bar positioned left, with a few pinned programs, set to never combine.
what i'd like to have, is a way to automatically put all the running(pinned/nonpinned) apps above (or below) the pinned apps that aren't running.
i've been looking around, but unfortunately i can't find something like this anywhere. is there a program for something like this? or would it  be possible to write an ahk for it?
if so, any tips for a guy who's done nothing but make some console running calculators in c++?
this sorting would do away with the need of a separate quicklaunch for important apps, which is rather an eyesore, and doesn't always show all icons (due to being positioned below the running/pinned apps, but not fluctuating based on the amount of systray icons).

Living Room / Re: Best trackball?
« on: January 28, 2010, 08:27 PM »
i'm with epopuI on the kensington, it's great. sturdy enough, easy to clean (ball isn't locked, just turn it upside down at catch) when needed, and it's comfy for a center-ball trackball. supports macros and the like out of the box too, i think (not using it right now, mom stole it). four buttons and a (non-clickable) scrollwheel.

armrest is detachable, i use it without.

searching other kensington trackballs, it seems they may have some other ones you might like.

they all are pricey though, and if you have young kids they will play with the ball.

edit:
[url=http://www.mousetrak.com/products/evolution/evo.html]this one looked interesting, though i have no idea how available it is.[\url]

for fans of taskbar shuffle that have been missing the middle-click to close function in win7, there exists 7 taskbar tweaker. this has similar functions, and some win7 specific ones.

add to that that a lot of the windows and linux boxes >$1000 are probably built to order or self built, which means it wouldn't register on the radar.
after all, if you care enough to spend that amount of money on a computer, chances are you have certain demands and enough savvy to know (or at least think to know) what parts you need for that.

General Software Discussion / Re: the actual browser divide: plugins
« on: September 15, 2008, 05:45 AM »
the one thing stopping me from using chrome is the ability to use plugins,
opera has userjs though, which can replace some of the more basic firefox plugins, and supports most greasmonkey scripts.
so does chrome if you use greasemetal.
not enough though, i need coolpreviews, for example.

plugins allow for a lightweight browser, adding what you need beyond simple browsing to it, and nothing else, it also ensures that if someone needs a certain something, he or she can build it if need be.
