Just to jump in a bit late ! Skwire, have you looked at this ? :

The free option might be enough ?

All the best.

Yes - scusi - the question was incomplete, what I meant was this : I have a known volume in cubic shape and I know its dimensions, how can I work out the possible dimensions of a cylinder of the same volume ? Is that any clearer ..?

Does anyone know the formula for converting a cubic or cuboid volume into a cylindrical volume ?

Thanks  :up:

Thinking of you and yours.

Living Room / Re: Website hacking - tools to help spot issues

My version of cPanel allows cron jobs.

Though this doesn't answer your question about tools to help spot issues, have you thought about read-write permissions ? Surely you could do something with that to protect your folders - and when you need to update your site you adjust the permissions temporarily.

There is also the .htaccess file that you could use to restrict write access.

 cPanel version

For those that may be interested MiniTools Partition Wizard professional version is free for a few days - go to chez Gizmo and follow the links and instructions.

^I ran into some stability issues with Claws under Windows when I tried it. But that was some time ago so I'm guessing it was either me - or they fixed it?

I don't know as I use Sylpheed    :D

Anyway, I've never found a good client option.  I hate Outlook.  i don't much like thunderbird. What else is there?  the other options seem to either be really old and unsupported or too new and overly simple.

If you're still looking for a client option have you looked at Sylpheed ?

It's been my major choice for a long time - there's also Claws of course which is a version/fork of Sylpheed.

Thanks again for all the comments and advice.

I must put some minds to rest : this isn't my one and only PC, I have a desktop which is running fine, though reaching saturation point, but which was never partitioned. So when I got this laptop, nice and empty, running fast and smooth even though far from new (the E6400 is a real workhorse), I thought it might be a good idea to partition it before filling it up with all sorts of things.
However I don't have the installation CDs for it but if I had I wouldn't have hesitated in going ahead with the partitioning so that if things went wrong I could start again from scratch.

But I'm following your advice and will leave things well alone.

BTW MiniTools looks pretty good and it does offer to either Split or Resize-Shrink - thus my OP.

Thanks again.

OK, thanks folks, I'll take that advice and leave things as such (while attempting to keep things clean and lean ...).

I have just inherited a Dell E6400 laptop with a 80gb hdd, nothing much installed on the single C:/ partition, though there is some precious data there that I've backed up elsewhere.

I would like to create a second partition to store data - what is best : to split C:/ into two partitions, or re-size (i.e. reduce) C:/ so as to free unallocated space and create a new partition ?

I would be using MiniTools Partition Wizard or similar.

The whole thing is a bit nail-biting ... advice please.

Install Stratiform and you can change the colours.

Just discovered this (and these) (though they may be known here) :

Apart from the fascination, the technique is very interesting.

There is this, but I know nothing about it !!!

Not sure if this site fits in here, but it contains some quite fascinating "knowledge" (despite the old-fashioned style) :

Hi skwire - just a small bug (that may have been reported already) :

if you enable the date/time etc in the titlebar, the time doesn't keep up with the system time until a refresh (either manual or weather data refresh).

No big deal.

There was mfNotePad which did this well but the dev seems to have disappeared, however you might be able to find it somewhere.

I think it might be a song performed by Jane Birkin and written by Serge Gainsbourg - but I can't remember the title !!!  :D


Very useful !
