Living Room / pass time during flights
« on: December 24, 2015, 09:09 PM »

my flight is 3.5h and I need something to help the time pass

what could you suggest me?

I was thinking of music. But how can I browse youtube and with one click save the sound of these songs (without having to sit and listen to all the clip) and create a folder with these songs to put in my Samsung Note 2 to listen? I need, in other words, a fast and convenient way to create a folder with songs from free repositories. Any idea?

also will the phone last these 3.5h?


Living Room / strong micro usb cable
« on: October 10, 2015, 09:11 AM »

I tend to break micro usb cables I use to charge my mobile.
They bend and no longer make good connection to charge the phone. (I need to rebend them and hold them in a specific position to charge, etc)

can you find me please a usb cable that won't have that problem?

it should also charge/sync fast (not like cheap alternatives that make the phone charge in 12h)

General Software Discussion / microsoft flowchart advice
« on: July 16, 2015, 09:42 AM »
I want to create a flow chart
I used Visio and Onenote
in Visio, I don't know how to make the canvas with unlimited length (and A4 width)
in Onenote, I don't know how to make the bubbles/rectangular appear with border and how to easily interconnect them (it's not as easy as Visio's)
Visio also displays text too small and it doesn't allow me to enter a custom numbering! only bullets!!

any advice?

General Software Discussion / simply create a projection
« on: June 09, 2015, 06:19 AM »

is there a software and command to easily create a projection of a 2D image?

I am thinking to select a 2D image and drag it, so that a duplicate of this image will be created in a different position and also lines connecting the two duplicate 2D images will be created automatically

so that the result will be a 3D image of the 2D image you had! it will add volume!

any idea?

General Software Discussion / why MS Word breaks format
« on: May 29, 2015, 08:35 AM »

I cannot understand
I have a text in MS Word
I copy another text and paste it, and it changes the margins of the first text!
I tried all the possible options of pasting, but it keeps doing it!
is there a solution to this?

I just want to leave the initial text alone, maybe make it obey in new margins after the last page of the initial text, or something?


General Software Discussion / cannot copy/paste in word
« on: May 27, 2015, 03:54 PM »

I have the newest MS Word (not sure which version, it doesn't mention anywhere!)

I cannot copy/paste using CTRL keyboard shortcuts!

is this a known glitch?


General Software Discussion / real time collaborative platform
« on: May 24, 2015, 06:28 AM »

My projects often need a flowchart, a timeline chart, addition of comments, addition of discussion, email alerts, file sharing, etc

We use sharepoint, which is supposedly very powerful, but the main problem I see with it is that there is not a single page to display the projects and edit it or have a discussion about each of its steps

you have to download the file, view it, and edit it, and then upload it, which is very cumbersome

isn't there a platform where it will have all the possible features and it will be web-based, not having to open locally files?


General Software Discussion / powerpoint question
« on: May 21, 2015, 09:54 AM »

Is it possible to edit one of the layouts in Powerpoint? I want to have a layout that will be as the 'picture with caption' BUT with a title also at the top!
and then I want to convert a bunch of slides I have to that layout (which can be done just by selecting the slides and clicking that layout)

any idea?
