Hi Mouser and all the people here at DC
I still drop in and have a look sometimes, usually after I get a newsletter.
I have been working in Adult Education at our local community centre where I have been tutoring adults with literacy and numeracy issues as well as people who want to learn a bit about computers, just the basic sort of stuff, browsing the internet, sending mail, copying files.

And it really isn't that dangerous in Australia Mouser, suits of Armour are not really needed, most of the time lol

Cheers and thanks for a great place on the net

It isn't winter everywhere, just a tip for young travellers

Mum and I find Australian Series and Movies excellent! Real people...

How can you keep all the characters straight when they all talk & look like Crocodile Dundee?

And that's just the women! :: ducking and running ::

 ;D ;D

Some of them don't, some look more like the crocodile  ;)

From what I can see it may not be that easy/cheap to achieve, but it occurred to me that you could use a low powered FM transmitter, you would need to convert the signal for transmission i suppose, anyway I searched and found this forum on it, it may be of interest to you. Sounds like quite a good idea to me, take your laptop to control whats playing and listen on the radio.  http://forums.audioh...owthread.php?t=57406

FeedDemon went to the ad supported model sometime ago.  There were a lot of complaints in their forums and on mr bradbury's as well, I just removed it after spending some time looking for a way to disable the ads, pity we can't charge them for time wasted with their bits of folly.

Living Room / Mining the Web for Feelings, Not Facts
« on: September 15, 2009, 06:23 PM »
As search engines begin to incorporate more and more opinion data into their results, the distinction between fact and opinion may start blurring to the point where, as David Byrne once put it, “facts all come with points of view.”


I found this interesting, how sentiment can be incorporated into search results for companies, products or ideas, they use an example and I quote "Using Newssift, a search for Wal-Mart reveals that recent sentiment about the company is running positive by a ratio of slightly better than two to one. When that search is refined with the suggested term “Labor Force and Unions,” however, the ratio of positive to negative sentiments drops closer to one to one."

Yeah I couldnt find it on his homepage either but it was in his blog, which I used to read and I guote

WinPatrol PLUS Boycott of Brazil

I’m not usually one to mix business and politics but growing up in America you learn that sometimes you just have to stand up and make a statement. One issue in the news that hits home is the story David Goldman of New Jersey who has been trying to be reunited with his son Sean currently being held in Brazil.

Like I said the merits of his complaint are not the point, I tend to agree with him that it isn't right from the story he has published, but then there are usually two sides to these things as well.

I bought the thing too, but once he turned it into a method for trying to coerce governments by denying access to it for residents of that country I got rid of the thing.  Whatever the merits of his argument with the other country's government it could easily leave anybody outside the USA without updates and support if needed, after all, which country will peeve him next?

Chris - you excel yourself (but still should be shot for such a BAD joke).

Punned down perhaps

I can't remember now, I was more concerned with having the documents open in the first instance, I have gone with nuance PDF converter pro.

Slightly off topic i guess but PDF related, I tried gdoc fusion just recently and it looks great and when it works it did all i wanted, the big problem I had was that it failed to open about 10% of my PDF files, and that was just too many.  They opened ok in adobe reader and sumatra, they were the only other 2 I had at the time.

General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox 3.5?
« on: July 29, 2009, 08:43 AM »
Firefox v3.5 and v3.5.1 are not beta. They are safe to use. In my experience Firefox will never tell you about updates to beta browsers, only non-beta versions.

I was aware they are no longer beta, my point was that I wasn't using the beta versions and got offered the update to 3.5 via the firefox automatic notifier thingy when it came out of beta

« on: July 28, 2009, 01:56 AM »
my firefox told me there was an update to 3.5 without my going to check it manually.  It asked if i wanted to proceed now or not, like it usually does.  Wonder why mine seems to be behaving differently, not that it was a problem, I'd been wanting to upgrade anyway but some sites I use don't like beta browsers.

What am I missing here?  When I read that licence for creative seems to be saying only that you cannot distribute the software for commercial gain without entering a commercial agreement with them.  It doesn't seem to mention any use of the softwares output that you have created :huh:

hmm can't see a licence but

Readers' responses and feedbacks are always appreciated. If you come across some really good ideas/tips for performance improvement or if you are having some doubts, feel free to contact me via any of these means:

The emails and so on are there but if you want to look, right at the very end, last page

Living Room / Re: What annoys you to no end?
« on: June 26, 2009, 05:43 PM »
I'm getting annoyed with people who can actually remember back to school  :huh:

I like these lists, when looking for software I find it useful to have a starting point of some software others have found useful or are regarded as the best.  From there you can research further and try different ones that seem to fit your budget and download abilities, which in my case are both quite low  :-[ .  So good work and thanks for sharing it with us muntealb.

Yeah, it is one of those times google really is your friend  8)

PSI does now have accounts which continue through time and across machines, still i found it annoying and don't really want something like that running all the time anyway, but it has improved a lot over the last 12 months, IMO
