i can recommend justinguitar - worked for me.

use one of the many pdf stamp utilities and slap a background coloured stamp over the top of whatever you want to hide.

yeah, yeah, yeah... and when you've already caught them out more than once and perfect parents & kids are what other families have?

General Software Discussion / Re: Combining Batch Files
« on: April 26, 2013, 03:35 PM »
use a flag so the batch knows which routine to run?
use powershell get-process?

I have a nokia 808 pureview.
It's an excellent phone and a phenomenal phone camera. symbian was axed, it hasn't died. there's millions of users worldwide if you can look beyond your own borders.

foxit pdf editor used to be excellent for the job.
However, it is now part of their business suite which is the most expensive version.
It's still a stand-alone program within the suite.
Last I checked I don't think the installer created an icon for it and it was only checking the install dir that revealed it still existed.

failing that, probably adobe livecycle which is now a separate product from acrobat pro.

I like polar navy myself, they have a linux version and it runs with the free charts.
however I've not used it in anger yet as my sailing has primarily been using mkII eyeball.

foxit pdf editor used to be the 'must have' pdf editor for me.
however, it is no longer available as a standalone and last time I looked was a part of their phantom business suite. inaccessible through the gui or start menu items, I had to run it from the program install folder, which might mean if you didn't know it existed, you'd never run it.
things might've changed...

Living Room / Re: Anyone got an iPad and like it?
« on: November 01, 2011, 07:09 AM »
I bought an ipad and eventually got rid of it. I spent a fair amount of money on apps but couldn't resolve my dislike for the itunes/locked in business  model. So it went. I now use a xoom which works well enough for my requirements. I will return to a windows tablet though. If HP released an updated TC1100, I would jump on that.

Living Room / Re: Looking at Cameras
« on: July 18, 2011, 05:08 PM »
I bought a new compact recently because I needed a waterproof one to take on a sailboat.
I ended up with an Olympus 'tough' TG-810 (probably named differently in EU).

I can say 'without doubt this takes the worst pictures I've seen since 1 megapixel cameras'
It's supposed to be 14Meg (I think) but the snapshot output has no clarity and barrel distortion is horrendous. I really can't believe how bad the pics are out of this camera. Wasn't cheap either. Ho Hum. This is one case where my phone camera does better.

Anywho, if you're looking for a waterproof, avoid olympus TG-810 unless you can test it out, (mine might just be a dud).

I was fed up with robos licensing and moved to lastpass/xmarks (at least for a year).
lastpass has been okay, though I have the same problems with flash based logins.
but at least I can install it on my pcs... at work, and on my android tablet

animal crossing

seems like how USA won the web (though tim berners-lee does get a mention).

'hello world' in whatever language you first did it in :Thmbsup:

Tablet pc & hpc also!

General Software Discussion / Re: Win/IIS to LAMP Converts
« on: September 01, 2006, 07:19 PM »
look up xampp on, it's great for trying LAMP out on a windows box by using the proggies you would run on Linux.

newsleecher the easiest to use.
usenet explorer/newspro the best
newsbin pro a happy medium

elite on a BBC B by Ian Bell & David Braben.
It was a fantastic open-ended space trading sim with wire-frame graphics. My first experience with computers for recreation. It changed my life!  :-[

sunbelt are hardly likely to have anything positive to say.. even if they sugar-coat it.
pcmag/world (can't remember which) tout spysweeper as the new anti-spyware messiah.
Someone's being economical with the truth.
For the record, I have registered sunbelt but no longer use it, to my mind it became too obtrusive and slow.

If there's one thing I learnt.. never trust magazine reviews, they're FOS! which makes DC so useful.

pfft! I would upload a picture of my (expensive) cat-aerobic center, but there's no one using it. They're all on chairs or beds.

« on: February 19, 2006, 05:28 PM »
These pics are from a japanese store which sells all manner of hats for cats. I did have the url at one point but I've since lost it. Some of the images were quite humorous/humiliating. The cat never looked particularly happy with the assignment either.
