Living Room / Re: Most Wiki'd Item? HTTP 404

This may be a quick starting urban myth but I heard it was in Eastenders - look it up if you're not a Brit - someone called someone else 404, so perhaps all the carrot crunchers were looking it up?

You're welcome 4wd  :D

4WD, there's an email on the way to you. I'd edit your post to mangle your email address if I were you though in case a spambot picks it up

It worked  :D

I can send on the .flv to you - suggestions?

I've created a torrent for it but not sure how to send you the torrent either as it's not one of the allowed filetypes  :-[

The Grab++ addon that comes with Orbit Downloader seems to be able to identify the source .flv

Currently downloading it at the moment but the site is abysmally slow; about dialup speed; got 9.71 Mb out of ?? so far so I'm not actually 100% sure it'll work but we'll see  :D

If it helps, the filename is TAWSP_Interview_112107.flv and the Referrer Domain, whatever that might be, is and the streaming media is rtmp whatever that is too.

I think all the servers are US based so it'll be no good for watching say BBC vids from outside the UK though I'm sure there are other workarounds

Can I bump this? I keep on forgetting the magic code to type  :-[

A nice 'show more results' button is what I need  :D

Don't be too hard on yourself Carol - I got an extra day off work, I'm not complaining  8)

The whole of Southern England - me included - is currently taking a duvet day  :)

Love the houses though - totally Footballers Wives  :D

That's ok Dave

If you're having trouble lining up text boxes then another option would be to use the two slides method with the words already there in both slides - but with a rectangle filled with the background colour and no border line covering the parts you want to have blank.

Well, to be frank I'm struggling to understand what the problem is.

cthorpe's solutions works perfectly; if - perhaps because your print layout settings are different - the fill in word overlaps the other words in the sentence, then just spend 30 seconds dragging the text box to the right place.

And can you explain why you think my method doesn't look professional? Slide 1 has the text with the blank, slide 2 has the text with the word. Ain't that what you're after?

Help us out here  :)

Is it ok if the words appear in a specific order? In which case just have several slides that build up to the completed sentence.

Well, I suppose it depends who they are, how easily they take offence and what the consequences are of offending them :)

You receive valuable messages from them and want to carry on like that but don't want other messages like abcxyz? So just reply back politely saying exactly that.

If it happens so often that you need a rule then you could set up a rule to automatically move their messages to a specific folder. Most emails apps will also let you run a rule on just the selected messages, so select the junk ones and then run the 'no thanks' rule on those.

Or if you're more like me, do a reply to all recipients, saying 'Hi all - I just got this bit of spam from poiuytrewq - I'm not interested but since you were all on the To:' list I guess you are; I thought I'd forward it again to you all just in case the original got inadvertently caught by your spam filters.'

I'm with Carol here; last night's dream for me involved Joe Swash from I'm A Celebrity - Get Me Out Of Here! and a very x-rated bush tucker challenge'  ;)

Daylight saving time?

If the timezone has changed the source and destination files may have different timestamps. Not at home so I cant check but I think Super-F has an opton to ignore one hour differences.

Well, a shortcut is just a .lnk file so presumably any program that can detect duplicate files that aren't standard image etc files should do.

Can you tell us what it is that makes Apple and Sony a showstopper?

That'll help us identify solutions for you.

+1 for Aardvark - printwhatyoulike can't cope with the UK rail enquiries website whereas Aardvark breezes through it


Thanks Mouser  :)

I can add ability to set format to BMP, i have to release a new version soon and will add it.

A .png renamed to .bmp isn't a .bmp - it's still a .png
katykaty, you are correct in 99% of the cases this would be true.  however SC has a special functionality -- if you change the filename in the bottom panel, and you specify a file extension, SC will actually convert the file while it renames it :)


99%? Make that 99.999999%   ;)

Any commercial app would have that facility as bullet number 3 on the side of the box. Trust Mouser to keep gems like this hidden away  :D

A .png renamed to .bmp isn't a .bmp - it's still a .png

Your viewer application is probably just smart enough to realise what it actually is and display it accordingly.

If there's a genuine requirement for .bmp images then submitting misnamed .png images might cause you trouble.


  • Rename to .bmp and cross your fingers
  • Batch convert to .bmp with something like Irfanview
  • Get a copy of SnagIt
