OK. The aim of the game is to: [LIST] [*]answer the posed "useless fact" question. [*]pose an [I]equally[/I] useless fact-type question.

Sorry, thread title a little melodramatic, but making sure is noticed :D Seriously though, when tags initially rolled, individual "tags" were separated by a [B]comma[/B], rather than by a [B]space[/B] (although commas still seem to work as well). The problem is that this updated format disallows a two-word tag, such as "Windows 7" - the space btwn the two creates [B]two individual tags[/B]... the [I]original[/I] tags rollout had no such issues. Is there a reason for the changes, or is it possible to go back to the original tag format? calamity

Have been hunting high and low on the site, but cannot find any info on how to go about [I]either[/I]. Am wondering if this is a "donor-only" feature (which not complaining if it is), or if I'm just missing something here. Can someone either point me to the relevant info/FAQ, or simply advise on this one? Cheers guys :)

I recently had a debate with a very close (if rather Macarded) colleagues about the iPhone, and its success in the market. His theory is that most ppl these days want a single device that does everything in one package, especially combining the portable media player and the mobile phone. My question in response was "what happens when the device breaks down? You effectively lose two devices (in terms of functionality) in one hit" So I put it to you guys; the loss of which device (media player or mobile phone - cell phone for you Yanks - would set …

For those of us using Dual or Quad core CPU's there is a neat little way to boost start-up time. By default, Windows will only use a single processor to load-up Windows... but it doesn't have to be that way. Hit Winkey+R and type in [B]msconfig[/B] (and of course hit "enter" Go to the [B]Boot[/B] tab, and select your OS. Go to the [B]Advanced Options[/B] button and click on it (yes I know I'm dummying this down, but saves silly questions later). Check the [B]Number of Processors[/B] option, and use the drop-down box to select all available processors (in my …

Have to ask. Why is one limited to a teeny 50x50 px image for a custom avatar, when those provided in-house are all 80x80? Seems a little unfair to limited simply due to wanting to express a little more of one's own personality. Can't [I][B]all[/B][/I] avatars have the 80x80 size option?? And any reason on the non-animated GIFs [I]not[/I] being supported/allowed? Again, just allows users to express a little more of themselves in the site, which is always a good thing (so long as site appropriate of course :) )

Have you ever walked into a petshop and seen a "Cavadoodle", or a "Schneagle", or the regular old "Peke-A-Poo" (no I didn't make that one up!). So I thought, what other "designer breeds" can we come up with? Now this is by no means limited to dogs, or cats, or even the common household pet. It can be a hybrid of two completely different creatures. The aim here is for the first person (myself of course) to list [B]two[/B] animals or animal breeds. The [B]next[/B] person has to give this new [B]designer breed[/B] a catchy name and suggest [B]two more[/B] …

This question arose in another thread here, and don't wish to see that thread hijacked further, so moved here. For an example, Tipard is [I][B]constantly[/B][/I] bombarding this site with their sollutions, and was told that most of their posts are "soft deleted" (meaning their posts are only visible to mods). Response given was along the lines of [QUOTE=crunchie;947182]Because that is how we do things around here. No-one can see them except for the Mods anyway.[/QUOTE] No offence intended to Crunchie, but that answer doesn't cut it. The problem is, while you may "soft delete" these spammings, a search for the …

<< Forked from [url]http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread208776.html[/url] >> [QUOTE=cscgal;938503]Exactly niek_e ... sorry, we're actually required to fulfill antispam regulations to keep information about every user who registers with us on record.[/QUOTE] Have never even [I]heard[/I] of such regulations (might I ask who's regulations these are?). Couldn't you still follow regulations by keeping sign-up info, whilst deleting account? I know some sites (Yahoo for example) who will retain records for a number of months, and freeze re-usage of that user ID for that period, then delete and free-up that user-name. Just seems a lot fairer IMHO

Have just spent the last hour guiding someone through creating a new profile in Firefox, while still salvaging as much as possible from the [B]old[/B] profile. Thought may well be valuable to set up this tutorial to guide others :) [B]Before you start, best to copy out the instructions into notepad, as Firefox needs to be completely shut down to create a new profile. [/B] Now before we begin setting up a new profile, there are a couple of things we want to export from the original profile (note, if old profile is non-functional, you may need to use the …

Now if you've heard of [URL="http://www.inspiredeffect.com/FoxFilter/"]FilterFox[/URL], you'll know it is an add-on for Firefox that allows the main user to block those sites they don't want any shared users to access. Now up till V6.0, one could password protect access to FilterFox, disallowing others from simply disabling filters, or even uninstalling the add-on. Unfortunately the devs have gotten greedy with v7.0, deciding to charge the end-user to lock the filter down (not bad when you consider it is an add-on for a FREE and OPEN-SOURCE browser!!). So, I managed to locate a version of FilterFox 6.0, installed with Nightly Tester …

Until now, one had to find a 3rd party app to change the logon screen, but MS has enabled the customising of the LogOn UI. Now this tweak is initially turned off, the intention being that the OEM can activate and put their own image in (can you just imagine a dirty big DELL logo facing you every time you boot up??). Now this is a [B]two step[/B] process. 1) Load up an [B]elevated[/B] (as Admin) Regedit and navigate to the following entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background look for the entry "OEMBackground" The defaualt value is set to "0", or off. Double-click on …

Have been hunting for a while, but keep coming up trumps. Am getting sick and tired of being limited to a 32-bit browser with the extra load it put on a x64 OS by one lousy plugin that's over-inserted itself into the market, all because the dev (Adobe) can't seem to pull its finger out of you-know-where!! I do know there is an open-source project Gnash, but again no x64 support. Just wondering if anyone here has picked up on any other alternatives??
