Oh boy!
Wasn't really expecting this feedback for sure!
Will try to express it to the best of my abilities.

Anyway, with PPLandry (convenience wise) we did a Google Hangout while working it out on a Google Spreadsheet.
As you can see from this link, the project no longer has 14 tabs but only 2 now.
The second tab (monthview) can be obtained in a different way from the data one.
While in data tab, clicking on "data", then "filter" has many different options to choose from.
Seeing that i imported the working file into Microsoft Excel, i've discovered a few things and a few glitches to iron out.
PPLandry was kind enough to let me know that i can reach out to him again when needed.
So that is a huge plus.
Will try to iron out all the bugs before then.

Just to openly express my gratitude to PPLandry.  :Thmbsup:
He has graciously offered some of his precious time and talent to offer a pleasant, simplified and most viable alternative to what i have been doing so far.

A pastor was busy tidying up in his private room on the second floor of the rectory of small country parish one day...
The phone rang loudly in his office on the first floor (no cell phones or portable ones in those days).
Mrs. Ouimet, the native French speaking house cleaning lady quickly ran over to answer the phone.
"May i have a word with Father Bob?" -asked the caller.
"Juste un instant, he's busy, he's up on top of me!" -she replied in her best English.

I'm open to suggestions Pierre.
This file is, however, the result of many hours of work with a friend who knows so much more about Excel than little ol' me.
That person has helped me in so many ways and when you find someone like that, it's not easy to go to someone else who might help you today and be gone tomorrow.

Thank you Pierre.

A simple point here (i hope)...
The "reserve to start with" tab has items to be assigned/transferred to the months of the year.
Once the date assigned, they are manually copy/pasted to their respective months.
The next step is to clear those assigned from the "reserve", thus leaving empty spaces/lines.
In order to fill the empty spaces, so far, all i can do is to manually copy/paste up the remaining to be assigned.
What would be helpful is to have these automatically be "upped".
If the ones that are finally assigned could be transferred automatically to their respective months, then maybe that would facilitate the "upping" of those waiting to be assigned in the "reserve" tab?

Btw, it's the "reserve" tab I need most help on for now.
the last tab has a list of things to do.

Here's a Dropbox link.
Wasn't expecting such a good response!
Will try to fill in with some data today give a better idea.

Thanks a bunch guys! :)

Sorry for the delay anandcoral.
Forgot to tick off notification to replies! duh!

Anyway, will p.m. Excel file to you as it seems it can't be uploaded here.
Hope it's not too messy for you to work with.  :-[

Peekier might be a good one to consider from a privacy point of vue.
We all heard of DuckDuckGo and StartPage but this one? Not me.
It's fast too!

Living Room / Interesting Search Engines discovered
« on: November 03, 2017, 08:22 AM »
Yesterday i had stumbled on a couple of interesting search engines:

The rep. was quick to answer an email and promised some major novelties soon.


Have an Excel file set up with 14 tabs (12 for each month, 1 for reserve & 1 for monthly results).
Let's say the reserve tab has various $ or Euro amounts to be used on a monthly basis.
So far, i've had to copy/paste from the reserve onto the specified month then clear the reserve items, thus leaving a space of many items that can not be deleted without breaking code.
What i'm hoping to do, is that the empty space created in the reserve tab be automatically filled or moved up with remaining items (monetized items) instead of having to copy/paste again and clear the lines where they were before.

If i can get this part done, i would be a very happy man!   :)

If there is no Firefox sync, then why isn't this feature taken out?

Living Room / Re: Good bye Firefox
« on: October 31, 2017, 09:25 AM »
@orbis - that's interesting.
A bit of work, but i'm sure i can do that.

In the meantime...
Can you explain why Waterfox Portable App will not sync with Mozilla?
Or why it won't in Linux as well?
Is the later a conflict with basic Firefox profile already installed?

Sorry for the rush of questions, but Waterfox support at Reddit is zilch.
I know Alex is probably busy with a zillion things, but... at least a nudge to say, "hey, i'm too busy to answer right now" would be more than welcome.

@tomos - have you tried Slimbrowser (built on IE)?

Still happy with Palemoon (forum is always a huge plus too!).  :Thmbsup:

Guys here at DCF are always fun to work with.

Guess it's been quite some time since i last took Palemoon for a ride.

@Tuxman - sorry?  :huh:

The more i make my way through with it, the more i like what i'm seeing!  :-*
Even my all-time favorite FT DeepDark theme can work with it!!!  :Thmbsup:

@Tuxman - you may have just convinced me to stay with Palemoon.

Found ways to install many of the extensions/themes that i've come to like over the years.
FEBE for whatever reason, could not restore any data from previous times used with Firefox.

FYI, did come across this tip (Palemoon forum) to get dark theme to work with new Youtube options:
"I just changed (in about:config) "" to use "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:45.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.9 (Pale Moon)" and the dark theme is available."

(could not find a Dark Theme addon to do this).

Pale moon?
Too many issues.
(sync issue is one, having to grant permissions to so many websites is another, limited selection of extensions/themes...).
Are you able to sync extensions, bookmarks, passwords easily with their database?
I'll give it another shot, but last time(s) i've tried it, it just wasn't ready for prime time.

@4wd -couldn't have said it better.

Thank you for the tip!

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk?  Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist.  "How about why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"Okay," she said.  "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first.  A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass.  Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps.  Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book.

Have never worked with an ESR before, so it's good to hear about your experience.

Do like Vivaldi too and it sounds promising but too soon to become default.

As of late, since extensions are plenty, Slimjet has become my default.

Will miss "find as you type" feature in Firefox with "enter" to open the link found in page.

Some people go for an ESR version or go to Waterfox or even Palemoon.

For some reason, Waterfox is giving me a bunch of problems and won't sync with Mozilla.
Palemoon? Too many issues there too (worse than Waterfox imo).

Once upon a time...

There was a browser far superior to others.
Unequalled in tweakability (extensions, GUI etc.).
With Firefox 57, all the legacy extensions have "gracefully" been kicked out the door (or will be crippled in their new version).
Even basic options such as ctrl+shift+b to show/hide bookmarks toolbar have disappeared.

If it took more than 10 years to get a fast loading Firefox with increased webpage rendering,
how long will it take to get back some decent extensions to give back its initial splendor?

It was nice to have you as my default browser for over 13 years and more!

Thank you Mozilla for this great now defunct browser.
