Mobysaurus / Mobysaurus, WordWeb, and Rough Draft
« on: July 20, 2008, 01:44 PM »
I saw Mobysaurus here and downloaded it. Saw it was a good thesaurus, but what really got me was the support for WordWeb Pro (and the free too I suppose). Rough Draft, a free word processor for writers (does not have the excessive bells and whistles that Word has; it has just the necessary for writers.) uses WordWeb Pro as its dictionary and Mobysaurus does too.  The three, Rough Draft, WordWeb Pro, and Mobysaurus are the most important elements in my office. I own a license for OfficeXP, bought before I knew better. and the OpenOffice suite though free suffers the same malady as Microsoft Office.  I put together my own office 'suite' of just the components that I really need.

Thank you for Mobysaurus.

Mouser, your Browser TraySwitch aids and abets me in using the internet as my hard drive. I use Mozilla Firefox, Flock, K-Meleon, Opera, and IE 7. I use Mozilla Firefox for most things including tech forums, then Flock for the several photo and social forum sites, then K-Meleon for Google page and email (I use Gmail for tech stuff because of the good search but not for personal), and the others for similar differing subjects and interests. I use two email programs, Mozilla Thunderbird my default and Windows Live Mail for Hotmail. I open my two Gmail accounts in one of the two remaining browsers. I have 14 email accounts but all except the Gmails and Hotmail are downloaded into Thunderbird. I have a house in Alabama and an apt in NYC. Comcast in Alabama and RoadRunner in NYC which explains most of my email addresses. Active accts in both; I download the email from the other wherever I am. On the road I have similar arrangement on usb drive, though only have portable Firefox, Opera, and Thunderbird. Some friends think my arrangement requires a lot of time, but because of Browser Trayswitch I check everything faster than most with only one or two email addresses or just one or two browsers.

Browser TraySwitch is a wonderful program, very useful. Thank you. There was an older browser switch program, but it wasn't as easy to use or as graceful. Thank you.

Qui bibit, dormit; qui dormit, non peccat; qui non peccat, sanctus est; ergo qui bibit sanctus est.

Whoever drinks, sleeps; whoever sleeps, doesn't sin; whoever doesn't sin is a saint; therefore the one who drinks is a saint.

I am a poet, been one for 57 years. Born in Scottsboro, Alabama, but lived in and out of NYC for about 40 odd years. And they were odd years. I didn't finish high school; I didn't finish undergrad school; I didn't finish grad school either.  I have taught elementary, middle, and high school, taught undergrad and grad school too. I have taught students privately. I am a poet and a prosodist. I work parttime for a small private intelligence and security company. I am selftaught along with the help of online forums, books, and asking about computers, security, and internet. About some things I may appear expert and other things a complete ignoramus, bizarre gaps in my education.  I have four books, one anthology. The last book, short history of the saxophone, came out last year. My pa was a mathematician, my sister is one, and so too my daughter. My daughter has just had two grandgals for me. (note the compleat selfdom, which he in 3rd personage resorts to 14th century variant of complete. And he minimizes the role that his daughter, her consort, and the grandma - oh, don't forget the holy one - had in this birth. He thinks, I am the grandpa.).

I am a member of the the Freeware Forum, where I heard about this place. They, mainly coathanger, are responsible for this here cursed with my presence virtually. I was taken by some of the software hereabouts, free. I like free, good free. I can afford free. I live in a house in north alabama, still have an apartment in nyc. With a roommate i can barely afford it, along with an active broadband acct there - and here. I have a Windows XP Pro and OS X network here and there; I use the  Macs, along with turntable, cd and tape players, and tuners, as music system. Windows as work horses. My main transport is bicycle,here and there. I mix high and low tech. I have eclectic tastes in music, books, everything. My lady is a pediatrician; she has a son and daughter from a previous marriage. I have a son and daughter. Her son is an e.m.s. and daughter an m.d.; my son manages a business, daughter an engineer with an aerospace company.

I drink knob creek, booker's, guiness stout, and pilsner, but no more than a shot, or bottle of beer in a day. Sometimes we split a beer. I am a grandpa to two grandgals, the last is the more important.

My lady and I split our time between WA state, alabama, and greenwich village. I am nosey, hunger for larning, so feed me.

i'm a poet, born in north alabama. I became a grandpa a month ago; two grandgals from my daughter appeared beautifully into the world. i am 65 so a lot of contemporary tech was science fiction when i was young. a poemmaker in a family of mathematicians; dad, younger sis, and daughter all math folk.

prosody, sometimes, is mathematical. I stumbled on this site from an article in pcworld, i believe, about freeware. the notice of the link to it was in Freeware forum.  without freeware and inexpensive ware i could not afford computing. thank you.
