Living Room / Re: How to turn F lock on the keyboard ON by default?
« on: September 09, 2006, 03:43 AM »
I had a Logitech keyboard with the identical behaviour and it turned out that there is not (software) possibility to do this, because the F Lock is hardware only and cannot be controlled with software. This annoyed me so much that i buyed a new Microsoft keyboard (Ergonomic 4000) which keeps the last state. So when the F Lock is ON and i reboot the F Lock keeps the ON state. I know that the predecessor act different, so a new keyboard become due? Or you open the keyboard and try the hardware way.


Unfortunatly the query analyzer is part of the Enterprise Manager and not free. So i can't offer an URL.

What happened was, that the window scrolled as expected, but the result didn't fit. If you like, i can post the screenshot that sc created?

Another one: The Query Analyzer from Microsoft.

I wanted to capture an execution plan, but it failed.

You have serveral more possibilities:
  • IPSec: Win2k and XP support this, as well as most Linux distribs and Mac Os. But it is complicated.
  • OpenVPN ( You have one vpn server and vpn clients. It is easier to configure and very flexible. It runs on Win2k and above + Linux + Mac Os.
  • hamachi ( The company Applied Networking plays the role of the vpn server for you (not charge). You (the client) define what other clients share an isolated "network". This is the most easy method, but you must believe in Applied network.

Well done, mouser.  :Thmbsup:

I like the "go down" and the search.

There is a (german) article on spiegel online (,1518,404076,00.html). It's a bit biting written and mentions that Microsoft is trying to do some "viral marketing", meaning that they spread rumours about something to start a hype. What seems to be behind is that on the cebit  samsung will present a tablet pc with intel hardware and running Microsoft XP. The price is about 500-1000 US-Dollars.

Some urls are liste, too:

yep, that's often the problem with this tools. I installed samurize ( some times ago, which is as i believe "the old bull". There are really a lot of desklets and it is nice looking, but of course it costs constantly cpu time.

Living Room / Re: xxx days until the FIFA World Cup..
« on: February 25, 2006, 05:52 AM »
Though i am a real soccer fan, i look somehow anxious at that countdown. I live in Stuttgart, one of those cities which will host to world cup. One thing i'm worried about is that the rapid transit is working to full capacity with the usual rush hour, so how will they transport the millions of visitors they promise?

Developer's Corner / Re: 18 Monospace fonts comparison screenshot
« on: February 20, 2006, 01:27 AM »
I guess i know what the difference is: My stupidity.

When i said "not clearcase" i put the aliasing setting from "Clearcase" to "Standard". But you meant "not aliasing", right? So you disabled the whole thing using the checkbox?

My guess here is that you use ClearType?  It certainly smooths things out and makes some fonts bolder.  I will go ahead and upload the ClearType version.  The screenshot size is identical, so if you have an appropriate image viewer (I still use ACDSEE 5) you can quickly see how Cleartype affects the truetype fonts.

I'm afraid not. This is how it is on my systems:

This is Windows without Clearcase:

This is Windows with Clearcase:

And this is on my laptop with KDE and XServer 6.7

Maybe there are other factors that influence the look?

Developer's Corner / Re: My (Ended) Search for a Python IDE
« on: February 19, 2006, 09:35 AM »
One thing that one should consider is that Python itself is very ungraceful for an IDE. Because it abandons on declaration it is hard to impossible to offer code completion at some points. Named parameter as example. From python's point of view named parameters are a very clever thing because is seems to make a function call easy understandable. But if i try to use Tkinter and must use them, the IDE can't help me on them because they are not declared. So the IDE has not knowledge about them. If i make a typo on a named parameter this is not a mistake for python, but another parameter. Tricky to backtrace.

Nice work, jroad. But i agree with Jibz, that something must have gone wrong. Some of the fonts looking so bad as to be unusable. Fixedsys for instance. Or Bitstream vera sans mono. I know this font and  i never saw the numbers this crumpy. It is true, that the dot in the "0" is looking sometimes off-center, but the "0" is at least round.

Great site.

If the Dina programming font has one disadvantage, then this that it is a bitmap font in FON format. So i can't use it with Linux/KDE.

What i like most is Eclipse with the PyDev plugin. We use Eclipse both as development tool and as platform in the company for Java development and i found that there is a excellent plugin for Python programming, too. As i do python programming only as "relaxation exercise", i'm not so experienced with it and it might be that this solution is inferior to wing IDE or kommodo, but give it a break.

You can download Eclipse from (You need the SDK). After installation of eclipse you can install pydev using the eclipse update mechanism from

If you have questions or problems, i'll help you.

I agree. cygwin is overkill as it is far more than a console. It is a complete distribution.

A lot smaller is with MSYS. This offers a minimal unix system. It is very interesting if you tend to compile cdrecord yourself.

Hm, i bought a license of the Suite some years ago but i don't use it. It turned out that the console itself was not 100% compatible with cmd.exe. IIRC the ant scripts failed with TC32, which made it senseless for me. A very nice feature is the autocompletion of windows shares, but this was not enough benefit for me. So my recommendation for you is if you want have  a more powerful console give bash a break. This is the standard console for most unixes, see,, and very interesting the coming up of Microsoft's  next generation command shell MSH

If you think of buying TC32 because of the programming aspects, you should keep cmd.exe and use vbscript which is much more powerful and available on every windows pc. Or use Python, Ruby, Perl ...

done, the ReportID is 0000179. Thank you mouser.  :Thmbsup:

One can make highlights with two different shapes: Either round (circular/elipisis) or rectangular. But the rectangular highlight has perpendicular corners, which gives them a tough look. If the corners wouldn't be "that perpendicular" the look would be much smoother.



this is so cool, i hope you accept another donation.  :Thmbsup:

if you need another translator to german besides Stefan, i'm the man.


I wondered what that img tag is good for. I thought i could reference the attachment. But maybe it is only for system images?

yep, you're right. My mistake  :-[


Hi, the Undo of the function "Add Caption to Image" only undoes the addition of the caption area, but leaves the caption text. See Screenshots


Another feature request: Sceenshot Captor doesn't define a Ctrl-C shortcut. I vote for "Copy Image/Object to Clipboard", as it fits perfectly in my workflow  :D

I usually make a screenshot of a region, highlight the area of interest, sometimes write a test besides it, and copy the whole thing to the clipboard. A keyboard shortcut for the copy operation would be helpful for me.
