The day finally arrived.  Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven.  He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.

St. Peter said,
'Well, Forrest, it is certainly good to see you.  We have heard a lot about you.  I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we have been administering an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven.'

Forrest responds,
'It sure is good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope that the test ain't too hard.
Life was a big enough test as it was.
St. Peter continued,
'Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions.
What two days of the week begin with the letter T?
How many seconds are there in a year?
What is God's first name?'
Forrest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and says, 'Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers'
Forrest replied,
'Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begins with the letter 'T'?  Shucks, that one is easy.  That would be Today and Tomorrow.'
The Saint's eyes opened wide andhe exclaimed,
'Forrest, that is not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I will give you credit for that answer.  How about the next one?' asked St. Peter.
'How many seconds in a year?
Now that one is harder,' replied Forrest, but I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve.'
Astounded, St. Peter said, 'Twelve?
Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?'
Forrest replied,
'Shucks, there's got to be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd... '
'Hold it,' interrupts St. Peter.  'I see where you are going with this, and I see your point, though that was not quite what I had in mind....but I will have to give you credit for that one, too. Let us go on with the third and final question.
Can you tell me God's first name'?
'Sure,' Forrest replied,
'it's Andy.'
'Andy!' exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St Peter.
'Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?'
'Shucks, that was the easiest one of all,' Forrest replied.
'I learnt it from the song,
St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates,and said:
'Run Forrest, run.'

Hope this noble effort will help Legacy add-on devs to continue their good work.

Living Room / Re: Can DC member bail out Firefox via Waterfox ?
« on: August 22, 2017, 07:26 AM »
@Tuxman - Palemoon is a decent browser, very fast just as Firefox should have always been.
But, have had various issues (other than the fact that i don't like their themes and selection of extensions).

Waterfox 55.0.2 just came out for Windows:

Sure, Waterfox may not be "open source" as Firefox (which imo is obtusely closed to core users wants and needs) and, if Waterfox fails, my fall back is going to be Vivaldi.

Living Room / Can DC member bail out Firefox via Waterfox ?
« on: August 20, 2017, 10:55 AM »
Firefox as most longtime users know has been going downhill for quite some time (cf. Dedoimedo's recent article).

The Waterfox Project seems to be the only viable alternative that bears the promise of maintaining the legacy add-ons which shall soon no longer be compatible with Firefox.

Many legacy devs have already abandonned ship and so, i was wondering if DC members could come to the rescue and help with the upkeep of these illustrious extensions or to even touch base with the add-on devs to let them know that we are people wanting to help them?

Just a thought.

It could be part of a N.A.N.Y. project.

Good video on Onenote IainB.
Could easily serve as a primer for anyone.

Haven't Scrabbled in ages!

p.s. don't know if this exists in Onenote, but it sure is a cool feature, check out cross-reference for Write app:


The folks at Microsoft should find ways to contract those "Quick Note" pages.
Perhaps a quick game of Scrabble could help them at finding contractions!

Problem here on Android.
If something is clipped to ON it is sent to "unfiled" tab which is fine.
But! If you have a dozen clips all sent to "unfiled" that makes a huge amount of tabs to classify.
In my situation, i would like to have just one "unfiled" tab receive all "clipped" items via Android into one single ON "unfiled" tab that could be eventually tagged. Can this be done?

Defunct Yahoo!?  :-\

My "hidden" idea here would be to propose a kind of "merger/alliance" with Cintanotes that lacks screenshot capture capabilities.
If Screenshots Capture could "merge" so to speak with CN and have a decent, reliable image hosting service like or others with unlimited services like Flickr. Then maybe both could rise to a better level of appreciation hitherto known.

That's funny!  ;D

Never thought there was a "proper" word for that.
Somethiing like "wanna" i suppose, slowly making its way into our dictionaries.


Screenshot Captor / Is there a time limit on 3rd party hosting?
« on: July 07, 2017, 08:06 AM »
Other than an eventual option to remove an uploaded file image to 3rd party hosting service...

Would like to know if there's a time frame limit to the hosting of these "clippings"?

Nice screenshot from Dirhael for sure!
Your Arizona cave shot was pretty cool as well!  :-*
FT Deep Dark, better than all other dark themes I've tried.
Don't usually like dark black, but this one has its niche.

FEBE has always been a default for me.
Mozilla muffs up on syncing at times so it's always nice to have a plan b.

Half a year to hope for the best.
Just wished Mozilla could do something better than adding an extra theme or two with a promise of better security with extensions.


I'm surprised you don't have "Beyond Australis" on your list.
Wish someone could come up with a good substitute before November comes around...  :'(

Using beta 53 64bit at present and it is weird that the new dark compact theme Mozilla has, works at first then it stops on restart. Conflict with other addons maybe. Pitty, it's about the only thing i like about the newer Firefox.

Have FTDeep Dark as default for ages now to fall back on, but i'm afraid that this most excellent complete theme will be in the gutter too on that 11th month. More tears...

Btw, was that the correct link to Google Yandex reverse image search?

Spotted Epicbrowser for the 1st time from a disgruntled user commenting on Ghacks.
Seems to have all the prerequisites posted here.

Just want to say a huge "thank you" to Mouser for updating my favorite "Windows Super Key" alternative!  :Thmbsup:


Not sure about:config issue since it works well for me.
But for the rest of your observations, i cannot, not agree! :P
Sure, there top notch extensions but there are also all those lesser known that you count on when you need them.
As you so elaborately well exposed, there so many more issues that have come along, adding to the fuel to make die-hard FF users irrevocably disgruntled...  >:(
We just don't have much choice than to look elsewhere for a viable solution.  :(

And the top extension are... going bye bye!

See why at Ghacks.

Did i miss the update link?

Section Groups creation tutorial i borrowed from recent article on
Don't think it has ever been posted about here and do think it's worth knowing about.

N.A.N.Y. 2017 / Re: My Android Apps for NANY 2017 -- All in One Place
« on: January 18, 2017, 08:32 PM »

Have installed your Checklist app on an Nexus 2013.
Problem. If i add "car 3" it wipes away one of the 2 you have setup by default.

Btw, wish there was an Amazon version of this app.

As highlighted, Cintanotes has much potential and i think one of nicest things to see from a company is that they not only allow you to hit that "feedback" button (which will probably be sent to the closet anyway) but to make your feedback available for all to see. Such is a huge plus in favor of CN where people can submit and cheer "up or down" on this "roadmap" the features already submitted.

Can Vivaldi be considered as Chromium class category or a Google Chrome?

Works well with Slimjet Linux (ChaletOS in my case) version too!  :Thmbsup:

Not at all with other Chromium based like Opera and Vivaldi and still none for Firefox.
Same situation with Google Chrome Keep Extension.

So, for those switching from Evernote or Windows, it is good news for sure!

Still, a very functional extension that will make its way to Firefox "soon" since Mozilla plans on "adopting" Google extensions.

Other than the lack of support for Firefox, this is probably the best thing Microsoft has done since Windows 7.
