Your welcome CharleyO. :)


Bagels, with their central fitting holes and wheel-like shape, are an improvisational thinker's kind of sandwich bread.
Rodrigo Piwonka's Flickr stream shows off a CD spindle bagel holder MacGyver would totally dig, and it might just inspire
you to reuse your own Memorex/FujiFilm/Kodak spindles for culinary transport purposes. Angus would probably also note that,
turned upside-down, the round plastic cylinder that caps the spindle works great for holding your salad.
More Tricks available here

I can attest to the bagel trick. :)  ;D

Microsoft, Yahoo Join in Opposing Google Books Deal

 SAN FRANCISCO - Microsoft Corp and Yahoo! Inc are joining a group of opponents to a class action settlement that gives Google Inc the right to digitize millions of books, the companies said on Friday.

The companies are becoming part of the Open Book Alliance, made up of nonprofits and libraries that have raised a red flag against Google's plan to digitize books and put them on the Internet.

"Yes, we've agreed to participate in the coalition," a spokesman for Microsoft said. A Yahoo spokeswoman said they had also signed on.

Amazon.com Inc has also reportedly joined, but a spokeswoman said: "We don't comment on rumor or speculation."

Critics say the deal gives Google the unimpeded ability to set prices for libraries, once they scan books and put them on the Internet. If the service becomes a necessity for libraries they would face monopoly pricing, Google's opponents say.

They also say it would also allow Google -- and only Google -- to digitize so-called orphan works, which could pose an antitrust concern.

Well windows does that already surely with the simple two key option Alt+F4, the window in focus (foreground ?) is closed.

Well windows does that already surely with the simple two key option Alt+F4, the window in focus (foreground ?) is closed.

What SuperF4 basically does, is kill the process of the foreground window when you press Ctrl+Alt+F4. You might think, doesn't Alt+F4 do this? Well, it's a bit different. When you press Alt+F4, the program can refuse to quit. Windows essentially only asks the program to quit, and lets it decide for itself what to do (almost always it behaves just as if you would have pressed the × in the upper-right corner).

I've never had one refuse to quite before and for those that might (if ever) there is the task manager to end the process.

I tend to keep away from installing a program just to do something which is well catered for already. As they say if it isn't broke don't fix it ;D

Normally what is a ROGUE?_?
You need to learn how to use a dictionary:
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/rogue

If you use firefox you can have it as a right click option with an add-on called DictionarySearch, very handy, just highlight the word you want right click, select Search Dictionary for "your text"
