I just installed it, and for me, it isn't usable. I have three monitors, and like to drag a tab from one monitor to the next. In Chrome, FF, and IE, I could have multiple tabs open in one browser window, and then drag one of those tabs to another monitor, and it would just move over there. with Vivaldi, the only way I have found that I can drag a tab to one of my other monitors, is by right clicking on it, and selecting move to new windows. However, when I do that, it reloads the tab. This isn't not good when I am watching a Youtube video, and want to move it to a different monitor so that I can have the video play in the background and focus on something else, because it will just restart the video.

I recently switched back to the Google Messenger app on my phone (Nexus 6p), and have a custom notification for new messages set in the app. However, any time I get a new sms/mms, first the system wide default notification sound plays(which is different from what I have set in Messenger), and then the custom notification sound I have set in the app plays. Any idea why this is happening, and how to go about fixing it?

Edit: thanks for all the help, but I just rebooted my phone, and now everything is working perfectly again.

Non-Windows Software / Re: Idea for decluttered android twitter app
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:08 PM »
The only (not really a) problem with Twidere I ran across was the limit on the number of reply Tweets it displayed but that was a function of Twitter's anally-restrictive API...

Another alternative is TweetDeck which runs in a browser, it's another interface to Twitter, (by Twitter), that allows for a bit more customising.
Yeah, I noticed that Twidere feels a lot more restricted than the last app I was using(can't remember the name, wasn't the official one though)
I used to use the Tweetdeck android app way back when they were their own entity. Then Twitter had to buy them out, and shutdown the app because it was better than their own app, which they didn't like.

Have you tried Twidere ?

It's also a lot less intrusive permission-wise.
I have not, but I'll check it out

edit: Twidere comes pretty close to what I am looking for, but the tabs show the icon for the type of tab it is, but not the tab label. I don't know if I am missing something, but I don't really get the point of being able to label your tabs if the labels don't even show up.

edit 2: Nvm, I ran across the "scrapyard" settings page, and figured out how to show the label instead of the icon.

I have a twitter account, buy hardly use it, because every time I open the app on my phone, I just see a giant list of 150+ new tweets. I just finished organizing all the people I follow in to lists, however if one person tweets like there is no tomorrow, then I'll get bombarded with their tweets, and miss the other people in that list.

What I am looking for is either an app that already does what I am about to describe, or someone willing to code this app, as I only know a little AHK, and nothing else.

I want an app that will show me all the lists in my account, and then I can tap one, and it would open it like you would open a folder in windows explorer. It would then show a grid (or list if the user prefers) of all the people in that list with an unread count next to them. You would then tap on the person who's tweets you would like to look at, and it would show a timeline of just their tweets (and maybe retweets (user choice maybe?))

I don't know if this is even possible, given how restricted twitter's api rate limits are.

I'm assuming he means pcpartpicker too. I just recently ran across the site, and I really like it so far.

Living Room / Looking to upgrade gaming pc, suggestions?
« on: January 21, 2016, 05:15 PM »
My current gaming pc is getting kind of old, and I am looking to upgrade it. I can't afford anything super high end, so I will be reusing some of my current parts. For example, I will be reusing my gtx 770.


I have attached a gpu-z screenshot of my gpu.
Here is the parts I have picked out. (I didn't actually pick them out. I found someone else's build, and removed everything I didn't need.)
Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (because the cpu doesn't come with a stock cooler, and I don't plan to overclock.)
Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
Thermaltake Chaser A31 ATX Mid Tower Case

I have three 1080p monitors, and have no desire to upgrade to 4k monitors any time soon.
I currently have a core i5-2310 2.90GHz with 8GB of ram.

So my question is, will the parts I have selected give me good gaming performance with my gtx 770?
I play games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, though I intend to buy newer games as they come out. (just don't know of any right now.)

Would my gtx 770 be a bottleneck to the i7-6700K? (Or vice versa?) Or would they play nice together?

I was watching a Youtube video where the person was talking about the things that popular Youtubers go through to make their videos. One of those things was making the thumbnail, which got me thinking. Youtube thumbnails are no longer useful. Popular Youtubers make custom thumbnails for their videos that don't relate to the video. (For the most part anyway). I'm looking for either a Chrome extension, or a Tampermonkey (Greasemonkey for chrome) script (provided I can get that to even work properly) that will remove all the thumbnails on every video on youtube, and replace them with the channel's profile picture. I no longer even pay attention to video thumbnails now, since most of them are just some random image that is supposed to make you want to watch that video.

I just looked at their FAQ, and it looks like the 30 day money back guarantee is for if you are having problems with the game. You first contact tech support, and if they can't help you get the game working, then they will refund your purchase.

I just stuck a quarter into the pinata prize machine, and out popped the game Outlast. Kinda wish there was a customize feature. I don't really care for horror games much. At least it was only $3, and I didn't have to pay the $19.99 that Outlast actually costs (Current price on steam as of writing this.)

Living Room / block private numbers from leaving voicemail?
« on: May 06, 2015, 06:24 PM »
I'm on at&t, and I have YouMail setup as my phone's voicemail service. Starting a few days ago, I've been getting voice mails in my at&t visual voicemail app from a private number. They aren't calling me, just directly leaving a voicemail. Is there any way to stop them from being able to leave voice mails?

« on: March 31, 2015, 01:06 PM »
I've learned a few weeks ago that DC isn't the right forum to ask for car stereo advice. I'm looking for a new one too, but I have a few specific features I'm looking for. The only response I got back was for some Portable wireless speakers... :o :huh:

Living Room / Re: mp3 sharing?
« on: March 19, 2015, 03:42 AM »
SoundCloud If you just want to share them. (Don't think you can put a price here?)
bandcamp If you want to actually sale them. (never actually used it, but I assume it might be pretty good.
cdbaby Is an alternative to bandcamp. I don't make music, so I've never uploaded anything to it, however I have bought a song from a Youtuber that used this site.

Living Room / Looking for good cheap car stereo with bluetooth
« on: March 18, 2015, 01:14 AM »
I'm looking to replace my current car stereo with a slightly better one. My current one has bluetooth built in, so that I can have my android phone (note 4) in my pocket, and stream google play music to my car stereo. The problem is, it takes about half a minute to connect to my phone (is that normal for car stereos? this is my first bluetooth equipped one.) Also, half the time, when my phone does finally connect, music won't start playing, and I have to turn the stereo off and back on again to get it to work. (its not my phone, because it also did this with my nexus 5.) (I have an app on my phone that opens play music whenever it connects to my car.) Then I also have a problem where it will sometimes pause after each song, so I have to hit the pause button on the stereo after each song to get it to play again. This isn't a bug, but something that I don't really like, but the display is rather tiny, so it only shows a tiny bit of the title of the current song playing, and then slowly scrolls the title across the screen.

I have a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am 3.4L V6 4 door sedan car.

So what I am looking for, is:
1. Built in Bluetooth audio streaming (don't care if it does bluetooth calls or not. I almost never make or receive calls anyway.)
2. Preferably a screen that shows the artist and title of the current song being played.
3. Not too expensive. (I paid $99 for my current one. I only have a part time job that pays $7.50/hr.)
  3a. Preferably about $150 or less. (yeah, I know this kind of limits it a lot.)

I could settle for one that streams Google Play Music from my phone via usb only if it has requirement 2.
The more I think about it, I suppose I don't have to have bluetooth, I just like not having to pull my phone out of my pocket, and plugging it into my car every time I get in.

I've been looking on, and can't really find a whole lot. Not really sure where else online to look. (is amazon a good place to buy car stereos?)

you could use a .tk domain name, and setup mailinator's private mailinator feature.

Evernote is on my list but it is very big with options I may not require. A smaller simple would be better for startup.

How about Google Keep?
I second Google Keep. I used to use and love it all the time, until I got my note 4. Now I use S Note.

Wow! Looks pretty awesome! I just downloaded and installed it, but I'm too lazy to logout and log back in, so I'll test it out later.

Ah, yeah I read that he went on hiatus. I just didn't know that he was back now.  :up: I'll have to suggest those features then.

Non-Windows Software / Re: Looking for a good Android launcher
« on: December 07, 2014, 03:20 PM »
I've used smart launcher in the past, and even own the pro version of it. I do like how the "tabs" are organized on the left instead of across the top (in nova launcher prime) Though, I like more how I can organize my apps into tabs and then an alphabetical list in Nova Launcher Prime. It makes it easier to sift through all my apps. Plus, I've grown to love the multiple pages of docks that Nova Launcher Prime provides. I can put my phone, web browser, messaging, and camera apps on the primary dock, and then slide the dock to either the left or right (I've got three pages setup right now) and then have access to my most used apps, all while keeping my actual homescreen clean and uncluttered. The only two things I can think of to make Nova Launcher Prime even better, is to be able to move the app drawer tabs to the left of the screen, and when in list view, have the letters of the alphabet along the right side of the screen to quickly jump to that letter. (Right now, you can run your finger up and down the right side of the screen, and it will scroll through the alphabet, but doesn't jump to specific letter, so it is very easy to scroll past the letter you want to stop on.) I don't know if the features could be added, because I've heard from some sources that Nova Launcher isn't being developed anymore, and I've also heard that it will be developed more.

« on: December 06, 2014, 08:22 PM »
I was loving the free version. The scrolling dock was awesome, and I can put 1x1 widgets in it. The only downside, is I was forced to buy the prime version to get the tabs in the app drawer. But for me, the $4 I payed was worth it just to have tabs and the app drawer displayed in list mode alone. I also like how I can remap the home button to launch S Finder from the primary homescreen. Might have found my new favorite launcher! :Thmbsup:

I completly forgot about S Finder. I've never actually used it. I'll have to look at nova launcher. the tabbed app drawer sounds interesting.

Non-Windows Software / Looking for a good Android launcher
« on: December 04, 2014, 02:12 AM »
I'm in search of a new launcher for my android phone. I'm looking for some specific things in this launcher.
1.I'd like the app tray to be organized in folders kind of like how they are organized in the aviate launcher.
2.I'd like to have a global search option like in the everythingme launcher. (start typing and it searches for music, contacts, apps, etc.)
3.Not a deal breaker by any means (and really don't expect to have this feature), but I would like to be able to place an app on my homescreen, and then swipe up from the app, and display a widget like in the action launcher.
App tray(Aviate launcher)
app tray.png
App search(everythingme launcher)
app search.png
(BONUS)Swipe up widgets(action launcher)
popup widgets.png

I kind of like everythingme, because of it's smart folders on the desktop (the wallpaper changes to the subject of the folder), but it auto populates the folders, so I won't be able to remember which folder my apps are in. (though, I guess that is fixable by using the find feature, and just start typing in the name of the app)

As an alternative to the above features, does anyone know of any fancy launchers with cool features? I have a note 4, so my phone should be able to handle all the bells and whistles of the launcher.

I leave bluetooth on all the time (so that I don't have to turn it on when I get into my car since I use my phone to stream music because live radio has to many ads), so I think I might just find a good cheap bluetooth keyboard to use while I'm at home. That way I don't have to install any extra apps on my phone... to bad there isn't synergy for android

Then I'm sending texts from my email, and not from my phone number. I did that when I was using a dumb phone to get ringtones onto my phone. I'm testing out an app called remote keyboard, which lets me use a telnet client on my computer, and anything I type in that client shows up on my phone. I'm perfectly fine with this, because that means I can use my computer's keyboard for more than just text messaging.
