First thing I'd do is switch to Firefox, when having that many tabs open in a browser, Chrome isn't really good at that, consuming lots of memory and CPU when the tab-count goes up. I'm running one of my Firefox instances with 300 tabs, without trouble, but I do turn off that computer at the end of my workday.

I try to never touch the pagefile size, at least not since the Windows 2000 days, back in the Windows NT 4.0 days it seemed to make sense to tune it, but after that it usually got worst whatever way I tuned it away from the Windows optimal/automatic settings. Theoretically, Windows running on a 16 GB system should be able to do without any pagefile, but I've found that Windows can get really instable that way, so that's IMHO a good reason not to touch it.

General Software Discussion / Re: Chrome tab height bug?
« on: June 07, 2020, 06:41 AM »
The issue still sometimes shows up here. I'm really surprised that this thread didn't get a single reply. Am I the only one seeing this? :)
Well, I initially read your post but didn't recognize the issue, Chrome is only my third browser (Firefox GA and Firefox DEV are my 2 main browsers... browser-based application development and testing on the same domain but different accounts => 2 browsers is the easiest solution).
And on top of that, even if it happened, I probably wouldn't have noticed... :-[

Why are you trying to use something you don't know how to construct (you are not even checking for the mandatory @ and .  >:(), if there are several working examples and links in posts above yours? Please use the advice that's given, for free, by ppl that actually know what they are talking about.

Living Room / Re: 3D Printing - General Discussion
« on: May 28, 2020, 02:21 PM »
I've been looking at 3D printers lately too, and I've been attracted by the to-be-released Creality cr-6-se (kickstarter link) 3D printer. It seems to be an improved successor to their quite popular Creality Ender-3 model.

Advantage of the Sovol SV01 model linked above is it's slightly larger printing range, but having to add the 'silent steppers' upgrade to the Sovol makes the Creality model quite attractive to me.

Now only to convince myself I really, really, need it...  ;D ;D ;D

Where is that valve used?
How often per day/hour/minute (or whatever scale seems appropriate) is the valve opened/shut?

Is your Antivirus killing the process?

Well, I've been using DC from https for a couple of years (ever since it was made available) now, and I haven't seen a 'mixed content' messages in a long time, other then some members' Forum profile 'Signature' setting where they link to images/sites using http url's

It happens every year...  ;D
Well, I get the impression that CafePress is a lot less reliable than it was a few years ago... dunno what happened there, but it doesn't leave a good impression :o

DC Gamer Club / Re: From within GTA to Excel
« on: April 20, 2020, 01:27 PM »
You can instantiate an Excel COM object, and manipulate it completely from there, so I think you'll manage that fine. Lots of resources to be found in 'da google' when you get stuck ;)

85
(and so on): Will be added from time to time.

Please add extra stuff as a new reply in this thread as users won't get notification of changes to existing posts...

MicrosoftHTML 16.16299
so I think I'm using a Chromium based Edge

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EdgeHTML says: "16.16299 This is the stable channel release of EdgeHTML 16 part of the 2017 Fall Creators Update."

So that's definitely not a Chrome based Edge browser...

Have you done any research (Tha Google?) before asking your question here?

Moreover, what are your current objects of interest?

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / NANY 2020 Mug-shots
« on: February 11, 2020, 01:25 PM »
Again, it seems like I'm the first to kick-off a thread with NANY-2020 mug-shots.

Please add yours (or other rewards received) too :up:

I got both the regular and the alternative design again, but in the smallest available size (11 oz.), so they're actually usable under European coffee machines ;D

I'm trying to help solve issues/questions, because that is what I like to do, but with your questions/issues the hardest part is not finding the solution, but to get you to write down only the facts that are involved in the issue, and the exact result you want to achieve. Often you are adding a lot of words that have nothing to do with the issue, making it nearly impossible to help.



I'll retry to get the facts clear, please give consise answers to these questions:

  • What is the input? Currently I suspect there is an Excel file with several sheets
    • Do all sheets have the same columns/data?
    • Can you provide a sample file?
  • What is the output you need?
    • All sheets combined into a single sheet in a new file?
    • All sheets combined into a new sheet in the current file?
    • All sheets combined into the first sheet in the current file?
      • All sheets should remain in the file?
      • All sheets from sheet 2 should be deleted?

Coding Snacks / Re: copy paste utility for excel
« on: February 09, 2020, 12:10 PM »
This thread should be closed by a moderator, the exact same question by the same OP is already in another thread.

@Contro:
Ok, I'll ask the 'big' question once, and please don't repeat the confusing flurry mesh of info you gave above: What goes into this black box, and what is the expected output? (IOW, what is it to be used for)
you are totally right Ath.
That's the point.
I have tried to explain to Shades. Perhaps you may accomplish there.
 :P
Well, all that you have done is what I explicitly asked not to do: You've added a mishmash of unrelated and useless words that say absolutely nothing about the issue you are trying to resolve. And on top of that you even used 3 posts to do that... >:(
To add insult to injury, you talk about using ahk to do something for you because Excel is 'too big' for you (to handle?).
What kind of help are you expecting?

1 google search gave me enough information to find this makeuseof page (select Not Now in the red page-blocker when using a decent browser with an ad-blocker), providing not 1, but 3 step-by-step procedures to accomplish what you ask. With the standard product, so no utilities needed, only a rather simple skill: google

As you forgot to mention what Excel version you are using, I assume you have a decently modern version that has a ribbon (Excel 2007 or newer).

Some well meant advice:
You really, really, really!, shouldn't be using IE for actively browsing the interwebz. And if it has to be IE (usually because someone 'forgot' to phase-out ActiveX), then don't use anything older than IE 11.
On top of that: You really, really, really!, shouldn't be using Windows XP for actively browsing the interwebz. You'd better install some Linux distro in a VM to browse the interwebz.

95
OT: Please don't shout here, we're quiet people, most of the time.



Check for another application that takes hold of the PrtScr key, most notorious is MS OneDrive that often has this enabled by default. Stopping/starting Screenshot Captor just brings it to the top of the chain, so it will work for the rest of the (Windows) session.

 :Thmbsup:

It's been a while (~25+ years) since I used make for my Clipper (a dBase 3 compiler with many additional features) builds, so it's nice to see such a set of useful stuff. Thnx.

« on: January 29, 2020, 12:56 PM »
I'll attach the download here so you can try it, it's rather old (2009, that's not a typo), but it's the latest available. Please run some AV across it before actually trying it, just to be sure.

Living Room / Re: Connector SAS
« on: January 29, 2020, 01:04 AM »
Though SAS and SATA connections are quite alike, they aren't interchangeable. SAS drives are mostly used in servers and are usually much too expensive to be used in desktop systems.

OTOH, if you already own a SAS drive you can buy a PCI interface for your desktop system to connect that drive. Speed is usually similar to SATA, when used in a desktop system.

What about the standard Win10 toolbars?
Right-click on the taskbar, open Toolbars and select Desktop (like I did), or add a new toolbar, pointing to a folder where you create links to your files/applications as desired. Multiple toolbars can be defined.

Screenshot - 27-01-2020 , 08_16_55.png

Example of my (partial) Desktop toolbar:

Screenshot - 27-01-2020 , 08_15_59.png

The advantage of TrueLaunchBar (shareware) is that the menu pops out on mouse-hover, where the Windows toolbars need a mouse-click to open.

Well, it's not exactly the same, but you could have a look at 7+ Taskbar Tweaker

7 Stacks was last updated in 2011, so I have my doubts it will ever be updated again...
