Suitable J.R. Ewing Memorial

04 December 2012 - 06:45 PM

R.I.P. J.R.  Got nothing good to say about you, but I guess it's finally over for real this time.  I'm sure there are plenty of tears in the beers in big D about now ;)...



Epitaphs and eulogies below please

North Korean Look at the U.S.

07 November 2012 - 04:00 AM

I guess we're all supposed to hate this, since it's put together in North Korea, but I find myself agreeing with this lovable North Korean spokeslady/translator almost 100% LOL.  This is for me funny on one level but I have to admit it is painful seeing all this put together in one video.  For the record this is one of many videos in the series (10), I guess all part of one video originally.  I think it's titled "Propoganda" as in U.S. propoganda.  Seriously, Hollywood has gotten grose as #%# over the last 20 years, so over all I would say I actually like that this video made it to YouTube.  Just wish it weren't all true...



I love the "shopping for children" part and these..."trained monkey collaborators of death" referring to the girls who smoke in movies and "miss" Paris Hllton is a "narcissistic parasite".

:good:

Terminating the Internet Explorer process

06 September 2012 - 10:42 PM

This might be a stupid question, but I haven't asked it before.  Why does IE always run in task manager?

I would end the process if I knew it wouldn't harm anything, but it just sits there using 114K of RAM even though the program is not open.  Not much in the big picture, and it's no damper on the processor to speak of, but I am sure this can't be there so it will open faster based on how slow it opens on this machine (I guess 5 seconds to the homepage).

Sorry if someone answered this along the way somewhere and I missed it...

IE8=> :man_in_love:

If it's safe to terminate it, I will...I'd like to remove it from preloads too if it's possible...

How Much Do You Know About Macros?

29 August 2012 - 02:03 AM

Any of you guys use macros?

It's like night and day with office software the improvements to performance that can be made using macros.  It's definitely another world once you can write them.  Seriously, everything changes so much that it's almost like the software isn't anything without the full range of use capabilities that comes with a working knowledge of the language (ex. VB for MS Office).

If anyone is unsure of what a macro is, it can be intimidating as hell in an office program to see the instructions for macros.  I have learned about macros and tinkered with the programming language VB a pretty good amount now, but at first I had no idea what a macro even was, and I couldn't find a good explanation.  It scared the devil out of me and made me angry at the same time.  That's why I am glad I finally got around to really learning how they function.

Sorry to say it's a subject that it's hard to find straight answers for.  Macro languages (there are several, Microsoft VB being the most well known) aren't all that complicated for someone who understands the principles of programming, but the gains in functionality from office software are staggering :shok: .  If anyone is on the fence about learning VB, I say go for it at all costs.  Start with the simpleton books, but expect an uphill battle.

If any of you guys use macros, what programs and which languages?
