Living Room / Re: Just how many Hitler videos does the world need?
« on: February 02, 2010, 05:56 AM »
I've got this film on my streaming server and I found it interesting to read what he was actually saying.

Got to admit that I really love them. Especially the ones that actually use the word 'Stalin' in the translations.  :-*

Found Deals and Discounts / Bioshock 2 with free Bioshock
« on: January 22, 2010, 01:57 AM »
(I don't know what this deal is like for non UK)

Steam seem to have (or have ingeniously designed) a mistake on the pre-order of BioShock 2. Their full price is £39.99 and currently have a pre-order offer of 10% off making it £25.99. Now my maths isn't great but I think that 40 - (10% of 40 = 4) = 36. So take them up on the offer while it is there.

During the pre-order they are giving away BioShock 1 for pc. I already have it so if someone wants it for a few donation credits (which I've run out of but want to give to skwire) than let me know.

You may know about this but the program is causing the 'return' key to be a carriage return before it is a 'ok' command.

This doesn't cause too many problems normally, just an extra line in the AnVu software. However if you remember the last entry it means that the cursor starts underneath the sentence the next time it appears. It also means that if you remove something from the beginning of the sentence you end up with blank lines

I think this is the following

[blank line added by fault in return key]
[blank line added by AnVu at the end of message]      
[blank line added by AnVu at the start of the next message]

[blank line as I removed 'Tickets and' and pressed Enter   ]

Also if I don't want to write anything (i.e. I blank the window and press enter) the next entry is blank. This sort of makes sense, but I was wondering if that was the design or not.

Well...technically...it was the last entry, right?   :P  I assume you would like it changed so that if an entry is blank it still uses the last known good entry?

I'm not sure to be honest. If I don't want to write anything then it is unlikely that I'm still doing the same thing as before. To be honest when I write nothing it's because I'm on here, facebook or messenger and don't really want to admit it in a log

OK, it worked that time. I wonder what happened. I'll leave it running for the rest of the day and see if it was just me mistaking what happened.

Also if I don't want to write anything (i.e. I blank the window and press enter) the next entry is blank. This sort of makes sense, but I was wondering if that was the design or not.

I like this release!

I like the remember last comment but have disabled it as I have to grab the mouse to delete the last entry if it isn't the same. Is there a way for the text to be pre-highlighted? That way if I start typing then it is replaced but if I hit enter it is saved. And is only a delete enter away from being left blank.

As the seconds are not displayed on the title screen is it worth updating it every second? You could delay it for 60 - date(seconds) then every 60 seconds.

Also seeing as you have asked for new comments to be made in this thread you may want to change the forum link in the about section to this page rather than the coding snacks section.

As always  :Thmbsup:

Could I suggest that the time in the pop-up box update?

It correctly logs then time when submitting but it seems strange to come back to my desk at 15:00 to see a message saying log entry 12:29

Just a minor feature request, so if you don't think it's worth it I'll just try and edit it so the time doesn't show.

I still feel there is no reason to buy Office Student edition as anyone allowed to buy it can purchase http://www.microsoft...teal-us/default.aspx

I used to use this program all the time to see which svchost.exe process was at 99.9% CPU and then bury down to see which service was causing it. If this is still possible I can't find a way of doing it.

I'll have to see if I can route out my old one.

Going to take the other side for a second here (note I don't speak Spanish) but the ones I checked (adobe reader and firefox) link directly to the original sites download links, so is there really a problem if they aren't charging or injecting spyware?

They've obviously fixed the link as it's the same for the UK now.

Living Room / Re: Dual monitor setup advice needed
« on: November 25, 2009, 07:49 AM »
Standard windows workaround is

Open problem program > Restore (make non-maximised) > Move to required monitor > Close > Open > Maximise > Close

Certainly works for firefox when windows pop up on the wrong screen.

« on: November 20, 2009, 09:25 AM »
I expected it to be a quick boot button for checking emails and the like as an alternative to full blown windows.

Being locked down stronger than an iPhone is a big disappointment to me.

Is there a command that will start the program with the autoscheduler on? For putting in the startup folder and then forgetting about it?

P.S. if you work with accented characters a lot, take a look at Skrommel's Accents script. it provides an easy way to define more characters.

I sent it to the entire University of Southampton modern languages department a year or so ago but Sophos kept calling it a virus, so I gave up :(

does the <^>! command need to change to use normal alt?

(Many thanks for this btw)

The idea was for someone with a laptop (hence doesn't really have a numpad to type it in), however I suppose a laptop won't have a AltGr key either will it :(

Thanks for this.
