Re: CodeLite

This does not appear to work anymore, it writes to %AppData% now.

I have posted a request for new instructions from the developer in the CodeLite forums.

Re: Windows 8 Latest News

Oh come on, I just got around to installing Win7 on my machine. :)

What's really surprising about this, is that you can upgrade from WinXP or above to Win 8 for only $40! That is the way to cut down on piracy.

You can do a clean install with the "upgrade" too.

Law professor says file sharing not theft
Well, that's because it isn't.

I never understood why more people don't understand the distinction between larceny and copyright infringement. Are they stupid or just ignorant?

shift-click on a tab closes it - Shift + middle click already does this
What if your mouse doesn't have a middle button?

You don't even need the Shift, a middle-click will be enough.

Re: Diskitude

Finally a successor to Overdisk (it hasn't been updated in a while). I don't know why more apps don't use the concentric circles layout, it's much easier to visualise and navigate.

Re: Utility to set default browser in Windows7

This issue was bugging me so much that it wasn't even funny! :( The files associations (htm, html etc.) was fixed, but the protocols were still not associated with my portable Opera, despite my numerous attempts (WPPmenu offers the solution if you keep it running). It only worked after I changed th...

Re: Utility to set default browser in Windows7

OK. Checked. Thanks! How about "protocols"? Where do I find those? Protocols are associated just like file extensions: in the "Classes" key (http and https), the only difference is they have a "URL Protocol" key to tell the system that it is for URLs. When the system looks for associations in the r...

Re: KONY 2012

This kind of "warfare" has been used by warlords/dictators for at least the last 30 years. Odd that there is a big uproar about it all of a sudden.

Re: Utility to set default browser in Windows7

I use a batch file that uses reg.exe commands to add them to HKCU.

Vista and up also has the following reg key that will override everything else. I'm not too sure what it does because associations seem to work fine without it:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\

Re: Fifth Amendment doesn't protect encrypted hard drives

An update: Investigators have cracked the encryption key for a laptop drive owned by a Colorado woman accused of real-estate fraud - rendering a judge's controversial order to make her hand over the passphrase or stand in contempt of court irrelevant. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/03/01/forced_d...
