General Software Discussion / Re: what kind of keyboard you use?

Benq X-Touch 122

masu, I think that may be the best lookin keyboard I've ever seen.  Too bad it's missing one thing, a volume dial :(

Whether you are feeling blue, energized, relaxed, lazy, looking for some motivation or whatever.  What are some of your favorite soundtracks to pop in or queue up.  Mainstream or not, soundtrack or score, what really turns your clock?  Just seems as though the musical arrangements used in movies, tv shows, plays, musicals, etc. can really have a way of connecting.

Looking through my collection, here are some of my personal favorites:

Vanilla Sky  |  Jackie Brown  |  The Big Lebowski  |  Boogie Nights Vol. 1 & Vol. 2  |  A Night at the Roxbury  |  High Fidelity  |  Forrest Gump Orignal Score  |  Rising Sun Score

I guess the point of this thread could be to see what interests everyone else has here and maybe discover some music we didn't know about.

What's the Best? / Re: Anti-Virus Package
« on: April 02, 2006, 07:16 PM »
Just stumbled on this review over at PCMechanic of NOD32.  Great Anti-Virus program, if you don't mind spending some money.

Here's the deal.  I end up having to re-install my grandfathers computer every 6 months or so.  He can't see very well so he goes clicking everywhich button.  I'll be damned at some of the stuff that ends up on his computer - and ends up missing from it - and things his computer ends up doing (like incurring a $250+ phone bill via dial-up).  I figure I will just make the default user a Guest account which I believe should help, but I don't know a ton about permissions and such.  If anyone would care to enlighten me on some helpful settings or even a unabtrusive top notch program that can help to protect the computer from unwanted user actions, that would be appreciated.  I've already got him on a good free anti-virus and convinced him to buy a copy of admuncher if & when it goes on discount again.  So the internet part is taken care of fine.  TIA.

giving this a bump in hopes of an April discount as there are many people in the world that NEED this software  :Thmbsup:

I too have looked for this for years.  A simple solution that just lists your mp3's from a certain directory (or directory + sub-directories) on your hard drive as a text file.  then you can click play, pause, stop, etc. on the left of each listing.  I once saw what I believe was a Perl script on someone's webpage that did exactly this, fast and flawlessly.  Needless to say i never was able to find the page again.

So what about Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0  Is anyone using it?  What do they like about it over previous versions and what is cool?

For the last year or so I have stuck with Trillian, simply because I find it easy to setup and operate - flirted a bit with buying the pro version, but decided against it. 
Very wise decision :)

This thread will never die! I WILL NOT LET IT!  ;D  Too much to talk about here.  I've had to catch up on many threads of 1000+ posts on FatWallet, HardForum, HydrogenAudio, and others - I think this one is just getting going! (sure hope so anyways, as I see this the most important piece of software to have on a PC and yet someone has yet to get it right) I am currently using both WinOrganizer & Keynote, I hesitate to move fully back to Keynote as I have alot of tables that cannot be imported.  Also, with Keynote, you cannot print an individual note, you have to export it to another program like Word first.  I've also tried TexNotes, but damn that thing is so bloated and clunky, taking up way to much space as a program leaving too little for actual information.  I find Surfulator to be too much of a Web info collecting utility than a note storing application and it too is a bit sluggish (just not snappy in speed).  Evernote just does not offer the ability to organize information in a useful way.  The upcoming rewrite of MyBase looks most promising, but still they have said this will not support tabs within files, which is one of the nicest features about Keynote.  I could go on and into more depth, but I am just an overall unsatisfied person with this category of software ATM.  :)  Oh, and WinOrganizer, they were on the right path 3-4 years ago, but all forward moving development has been basically non-existent.

bout time f00.  welcome back indeed.  we miss you & your insight.  ...also your site updates.

Usually I wait AT LEAST 6 months on a new OS.  I think this time I will wait at least 3-4 years. I am perfectly happy with Windoze XP.  I don't even have a problem running Windows2000.

I find it very interesting how handy a tool like this could become for quickly creating your own Auction Listings, especially if they were Google Auctions!  Let's see a payment/micropayment system is due soon, it does look like they are slowly positioning themselves to take on the juggernaut eBay.  Yay.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: early screenshots

My, My, My. Someone is sure driven :)  Nice work mouser.

I'm running my screen at 1920x1200 which explains the stretched screen.
Here is my Firefox setup (quite naked at the moment as I have just come back to Firefox due to some memory issues with Maxthon):

Minifox 0.7.3
Extensions In Use (Links to these can be found in the Firefox Extensions thread): 
AI Roboform Toolbar, Scrapbook, Tab Mix Plus, Super DragAndGo, Disable Targets For Downloads, MinimizeToTray, ViewSourceWith, Ebay Negs!, Add Bookmark Here, Bookmarks' Full Titles
Disabled Extensions (still testing out):
Web Search Pro, Download Statusbar, MenuX, and many more yet to download.

Here is my Maxthon setup:

Skin: Default

Plug-Ins: Roboform Toolbar, StumbleUpon, Google Search, Enable RightClick, Ebay Search Box

If anyone wants to see the screenshots in more detail they can be found here:  Firefox #1 - Firefox #2 - Maxthon #1

With all the talk of browsers heating up again lately I thought it would be cool to see what everyone browses with and how they are using it to surf the web.

I will update this first post with any links to other such threads that people here find.  The only one I know of at the moment is over at the Maxthon forum.


It doesn't seem to be compatible with Firefox 1.5 and I couldn't find it on the newer site (https://addons.mozil...?application=firefox).
Otherwise, that looks to be exactly what I was looking for. 

I also found MexuX (https://addons.mozil...;application=firefox) but that just seems to be a fullscreen mode, which covers the taskbar when maximized.

Let's assume Surfulater is the best way to capture information from the web.  Unless Surfulater is ALSO not one of the best notetaking programs, then where are we going to store and organize the information?  Are we going to use Surfulater to capture the information, but then port it somehow to another program that is a more powerful notetaking application or organizer?  I don't think so, that would be very frustrating.  Anyway, I'll have more thoughts on this later.

That is exactly the dilemma no one has been able to resolve yet.  Right now you have to use a program like NetSnippets/OnFolio/Surfulater with a program like MyBase/KeyNote/WinOrganizer.  Programs like OneNote and TexNotes have been headed in the right direction, but I must say TexNotes is so much bloat, I find it very frustrating to use.  I couldn't agree more with superboyac, you can't have two programs managing your information - clipboard use, notetaking, webclipping and file clipping all fall together, it's exactly where OneNote is heading (although i doubt microsoft will get it right, because they don't understand the idea of making things fully customizable or flexible from the users end).  Anyways, here is to the second wave of programs trying to get this right, like MyBase & Surfulater, hope they can do it.

Can anyone help me figure out how to remove the title bar (blue bar at the very top) in FireFox.  All it does is take up wasted space for browsing.  I don't need to see the page title, because of tabs and even if tabs are shortened you can hover a tab for the page title.  Also, minimizing and closing can easily be done with shortcut keys.  I don't know if this can be done through an extension or a hack, but I have done some google searching, but no luck so far.  Help?

I too have used PhoneDeck for the last 4 years or so.  It's been a great piece and easy to use, but I am in the process of porting all that data into a tabbed excel spreadsheet (given that all tranglos software development is over), until i find what I am looking for.  :(
