You either die a feature or live long enough to see yourself become a bug.

either one is irrelevant if its not documented

i interrupt this PUN war to report in from the field: I have somehow finished all electric wiring and plumbing, and everything works (!)

field? field??? oh, I get it, FIELD! Bazinga!!

Shocking revelation, that.

Ohm my word, I knew you all wouldn't be able to resist.
That comment really Hertz.
And so it should! After all, we are discussing the crown joules of mouser's demesne.

I think that there is a potential difference that you re-fuse to see that I can't relay between our alternating current conversations.
We're poles apart and, to be direct, at the risk of seeming a growler, that kind of thinking comes close to analog ic. You really should keep an ion it.

pretty sure you guys have ground about as much as you can out of this
No one would fault mouser if he set an impedance on the frequency of off-topic conversations on this circuit and placed a demand on us to cut it short.
Or he lets us go on by extension, cord-ially....
could go either way, though I fully expect him to arc up soon
Would we want to have him amp up about this?
The mains part of this powerful conversation sure went off the rail, didn't it?
Only a third of it.
This conversation's spark is fading, so wire you giving it more continuity?
I can't tell—do you approve of such conduct or not?

I feel a need to insulate myself from that line of questioning.
then watt will you do?
I personally volt that we end this now.

Come on Wraith, stay on the bus!

Living Room / Re: Is there any compact portable browser?
« on: March 11, 2019, 06:44 PM »
FWIW, on my old 1.5GB Atom powered netbook I used to use either K-Meleon or the XP version of PaleMoon (archive link) which had optimisations for Atom CPUs.

FWIW played with K-Meleon for a couple of days and it was terrible.  For the moment I'm assuming its the browser and not some other issue but I'll give palemoon a go and see what happens

Could be a rebuild in the works...

Plumbing and Electricity are two areas that I personally won't touch.  Good luck!

even electricians use that rule...

Thanks 4WD :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

I'll give those a go.  I've toyed with kmeleon before, but never seriously

and yes, its still running the original win7 starter edition it came with.  It's getting a bit long in the tooth now and could probably benefit from a rebuild, but converting to linux has long been on the cards (although its a nuisance if I want to use it for some windows related work)

« on: March 03, 2019, 11:37 PM »
if I can derail this thread slightly, I'm also looking for a 'modern' lightweight browser for my netbook

Not worried about disc requirements, more about memory usage etc. 

The current assumption that everyone has unlimited memory and mega core CPU doesn't apply here - limited to 2Gb ram and an atom processor

FWIW I'm currently using opera as it seems to be the lightest so far.  Chrome is 'useable' but firefox isn't.

I've tried a few others but they all seem to be based on one of the current favourites so there don't appear to be any real gains 

suggestions?

A couple of matching numbers, while posting in the same thread, and signed up in the same year, but also one notable difference...

not sure if that was supposed to be some sort of backhander or not but it sure makes me feel guilty  :-[

quite apart from that, wow...  How the hell do you guys find this stuff?

Living Room / Re: Any VBA experts?
« on: February 23, 2019, 09:43 PM »
as usual, more info required...google is your friend

copying a sheet into a book is easy, but you may well have issues with the formulas (depending on what they are and what you're trying to do)

and it sounds like not everything in the formula sheet is applicable in every scenario you might use it in, so it may be that using the process you've described isn't a very efficient solution

116
without knowing the format of your spreadsheet it's difficult to provide accurate answers

that said, don't make things harder for yourself than they need to be, ie let excel do the calculations for you (thats what its for after all) by setting up a couple of fields in the source workbook

the counta formula counts the number of fields (cells) in a range that are not blank, eg =counta(A:A).  add '-1' to account for header rows

The countif/countifs function counts the number of occurrences of defined values within a range, eg =countifs(UDE!$AC:$AC,"Low",UDE!$AC:$AC,"MLD") + countif(UDE!$G:$G,"High")

percentages are calculated by dividing the results of your 2 counta formula's, eg =counta(B:B)/counta(A:A).  Note that the proper way to do this would be to substitute the relevant cell references for the counta functions 

can't give you any advice regarding the extraction of the results to another document without knowing more about where and how the source files are stored.  Mail merge may work, but I can't test it against your scenario

117
this should be relatively easy in VBA, but I guess it depends on how you want to do it

Do you want to do this from somewhere in office, ie word or excel, and if not then where from (and maybe why)

Do you want to open the source file(s) or just poll them remotely

do you want to do this on a schedule, or ad-hoc

 

118
thanks Panzer

119
maybe I'm nitpicking, but if anyones adding to the list can they please add something more than just a name + link. 

In a lot of cases the name is a clue as to what the program does, but I'm probably not alone in being wary of clicking on an unqualified link to find out whats on the end of it

Not suggesting for a minute that anyone here would consciously do anything risky, but still...

EDIT: Looks like it's essentially a demo. It's a limited, non-fully-featured version of the game.  :(

I believe its just the 'battle royale' component...

not sure how that works in a 2D shooter, but perhaps thats part of the fun...
