So do I, because I can't live without it.

Owoo, I would so love to play with one of those dorks. And of course record the whole thing.

Doesn't do sith here. I'll stick with the Remote Keys special characters profile (do I hear a lot of "Huh???").

Your problem has nothing to do with Java - it is a matter of browser configuration. Open the Internet Options dialogue, either through the Control Panel or IE's Tools menu. "Active scripting" is the thing to look for.
# On the Security tab, click Internet.
# Click Custom Level.
# Scroll down to Active scripting.
# Click Enable (or Prompt).
# Click OK.
# Click Yes.
# Click OK.

A couple of detailed how-to pages:


I don't know how things get changed sometimes, but they do. Of course I don't use IE. I use K-Meleon.  :D

If all else fails...GET FIREFOX! lol

Also my password shooter and clip assistant and....
I made a NoteTab clipbook for making RemoteKeys pop-menus LOL

RUNit (Link may not work, but the proggie still does) I stick this into other people's computers - ones I work on often - so I can access my own tools without confusing or scaring anybody ;)

Free Commander

A few other small things, launched from RemoteKeys when I need something that isn't in it.

On RARE occasions, I right-click my rather bare desktop to get a minimal version of the Windwoes start menu.

Screenshot Captor / Why I gave up on it
« on: August 29, 2007, 07:44 PM »
I was quite enchanted by the idea, but...

1. I really never used it much because it had too many bells and whistles and options and I found that I didn't want to take the time to deal with it all when I already had MWsnap and IrfanView and... When I want a screenshot, I want a screenshot. Now. I can do lots of things with it after.

2. Bloat! Every time there was a little incremental update, I had to decide whether or not to download a ridiculously large package that was mostly the same old stuff. And I never wanted the blasted clip art! That at least should be optional and separate. Not everyone has a fast connection and drive space to waste.

So...sorry, Mouser, but I uninstalled it to make room for a few more fractals ;)

Living Room / Re: How do you organise your 'My Documents' folder
« on: August 29, 2007, 07:20 PM »
I don't. My computer is not shared with anyone else, so I have no reason to use the #$%&@*! My fsck1ng Documents thing. I hate, loathe, and despise the whole "My" scene, Mycorot's demeaning baby-naming makes me sick.

Because the MS Office monsterware (and other things) won't stay out of it, I put in shortcuts to my real archive directories. They are in a partition far, far away, safe from random Windwoes brain-farts that might suddenly make my files inaccessible.

I once lost everything because I trusted That Folder. I'm not the only one. That's a big part of why I hate it so much. I don't want to see That Name any more than I have to. Renaming or moving IT doesn't help, because the puky label will still be all over everything. Also, it can be hard to get into from decent proggies.

One other reason I don't - I have several different accounts on this computer, for special uses, and "we" all want convenient access to the same stuff!

If I had to use IT (retching noises), I would organize pretty much the way I do now. Lots of folders, some subfolders, and no snowdrifts of unorganized files. It would vary a lot. I would back up more often than I do now. It would be a pain in the parts.

In Linux, I behave according to the norm in everyday usage, because Ubuntu doesn't force any "My Widdle Folder" BS on me. It's not the place, it's the attitude, the stupidity of the name - and the bad memories.

Pretty decent spread there. I just put in my click for the mature end...  ;D

Interesting...It almost seems as if there are certain designated pioneers making innocuous posts that appear real, usually a question. I've seen a couple of spam runs from the beginning. Thank goodness SMF has made it possible to keep the worst sh1th34ds out. Forum spammers love their own stink.

Safety.Net -

I discovered it last year, have been using it ever since.

Speaking of multiple-function security tools, I am quite favorably impressed with Spyware Terminator -

It surprised me, I'm hard to impress. Would be a good compliment to XP's firewall, I think.

I used to use Outpost, but it was a headache sometimes. I think ZoneAlarm is a ho, I tried it a long while back and said never again. I can't respect proggies that tell me what a good job they are doing without my asking "howzit going?"

That's the one I've always used  :D

 :Thmbsup: Wow! It brings to my mind a line from an old fairy-tale: "The mills of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine."

I wouldn't want to search my whole hard drive with it, but it's going to be summoned first whenever I need to search a limited range of files for - duh, what was that name... I do that fairly often. The results of my first trial search are excellent. I'm in love. :-*

Woh, I think I might add something to my faves. I started a blacklist during one phase of one of my former websites. A programmer actually e-mailed me to say that he had fixed the booger I shightlisted him for, so I took his prog off.

I learned to hack the registry within a month or two of having my own computer because of something that wasn't worth keeping that left a file association mucked up. I have had to delete files from DOS to get back into Windwoez after a [email protected] uninstall. I know all the words. I use a choice few plus inarticulate screams.

Recently I rehabilitated an old machine that was very sick with "Norton flu" - it was so slow that you had to wait all day to make a shortcut on the desktop.

One of my biggest gripes in "bewareware" is bundled software.

Oh, and I have a thread in another forum entitled "Bad stupid idiotic moronic useless vain bloated gassy webpages" where I post links to anything that takes five minutes to load or can't be read without 20-20 vision and a wall-size monitor. And I hate Flash  :P

"Greatest" means what, in other words. All I could vote for would be "most useful to me" - probably IrfanView.  ;D

Well, AnusOnLine IS malware, any time, any place - I would never argue with that!
