kevin Baud: there's tab completion? Baud kevin: yup.. can't remember the setting.. you change a value in the registry to the hex value of the key you want to use pron kevin: What version of windows ? kevin pron: um... i think t's w2k professonal? pron Now you can enable this feature in NT by doing the following: open regedit and look for the key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor", look for the value named "CompletionChar" and change its value to 9 (ASCII code for the TAB character), and you're done! That's all there is to it. pron That's for NT ... so should work in 2k

Mailed the section describing my [work] keyboard, a Dell RT7D00, to the
project maintainer of lineak
(Linux support for Easy Access and Internet Keyboards).
It’s great – I now have the four additional keys (Mail, Home, Search & Sleep)
This is the content of my ~/.lineak/lineakd.conf file:
KeyboardType = DELL-RT7D00 Home = /usr/bin/mozilla http://intranet Mail = /usr/bin/evolution mailto: Search = /usr/bin/mozilla http://linux.ie Sleep = xscreensaver-command -lock
The section in /etc/lineakkb.def, which I mailed to the project lead, looks
[DELL-RT7D00] brandname = "DELL" modelname = "Dell RT7D00" [KEYS] Mail = 146 Home = 166 Search = 158 Sleep = 223 [END KEYS] [END DELL-RT7D00]
The “State of the GnuCash Project” article has me thinking that the ILUG
website is not pulling its weight where informing people of good (read
‘rock-solid’) Open Source projects they may not be aware of is concerned.
I think the best way to do this is through rotating banners at the top of the webpages,
between the ‘linux.ie’ graphic and Tux.
I don’t want to add to the confusion that newbies tend to feel, so only one
project in each field will get through to having a rotating banner on the site.
I’m looking for nominations and contact details to get this rolling, so send
them to email@example.com.
Very saddened (read irritated) this morning when I heard that our Minister of the Environment disagrees with the intended blanket ban on smoking.
That he disagrees with it is his own personal business. However, I feel he should be towing the line with his colleague the Minister of Health and rethink his wording that the ban related to “political correctness”.
The ban is born not for a desire of political correctness, but to protect peoples well-being and health.
Cullen ought to be forced to work in an environment where all those around him smoke solidly for at least a fortnight and then asked if his opinion has changed.
Went into Argos today to get a copy of the new catalogue and to splash out on a Sharp Zaurus.
Plenty of new catalogues – but no Zaurus. No longer stocked.
Asked what currency code to use for South Africa in work today. I could remember most, but not all, from when I worked for Credo (now a disbanded subsidery of MiSys), I found this page.
The answer to the question was ZAR, for what it’s worth.
I wonder how everyone I used to work with in Credo are.
I had to abruptly shut down my PC before the weekend. Started Mozilla this morning and was informed that the Default Mozilla Profile was in use – no it wasn’t – a lock file hadn’t been deleted though.
$ find ~/.mozilla -name lock | rm
proved to be the solution.
