    Never had a Viewsonic screen. I can't remember what screen I was using
    when I first tried this and encountered a problem. I know it used
    Radius software and had problems with Word Perfect and Paradox. I
    ultimately solved my problems by buying a taller screen which just
    happened to be wider at the same time. :)

    where did i say anything remotely close to that???

    he said he has no ability to change it, and then said he did have the
    ability but didn't want to.

    there's nothing wrong with not wanting to, but that's very different
    than claiming he has no ability, when in fact he does.

    if you examined the alternatives, you'd see it's not the only way it
    can work.
    it's well within your control to change. you may not want to, which is
    fine, just don't say you can't when you can.

    and now you do. things change, and the reasons for picking a ps/2 may
    no longer apply.
    i already mentioned two.
    first you say you have no ability to change, then you say you have the
    ability and you just aren't interested.

    there's nothing wrong with not being interested in changing it, but you
    definitely *do* have the ability.
    actually it's very little effort and likely has a lot more benefits
    than just this one particular issue.

    i see the stupidity of your response.
    it's *not* the file system hierarchy, which is what this is about, and
    may not be hierarchical at all.

    you do *not* need to know where in the file system those songs are, or
    which file systems. some could be stored locally, some on a network
    drive and some in the cloud. the app will find them, wherever they
    happen to be.
    it's *not* the file system hierarchy, which is what this is about, and
    may not be hierarchical at all.

    you do *not* need to know where in the file system those photos are, or

    drive and some in the cloud. the app will find them, wherever they
    happen to be.
    there are apps that are compatible with lightroom, but more
    importantly, i choose the best app for a given task, one which saves me
    a lot of time so i can go do other more interesting stuff.

    someone who does *not* choose the best app could easily be considered
    an idiot.
    actually, it is, and it's going away, much like the command line has
    all but gone away, except for a small number of geeks who are fixated
    in the past.

    for example, there is no file system access for users in ios, android,
    at least not without jailbreak/rooting which a tiny minority do and
    that's generally to get around a restriction, such as unlocking a
    carrier locked device or to run unapproved and/or illicit software, not
    because they want file system access.
    it can but there's not a pressing need to look at any of that.

    many apps directly support dropbox and manage everything themselves.
    it doesn't have to detect it perfectly in all cases.

    even if it does 70-80% and leaves the remainder for manual sorting, it
    will *significantly* cut the amount of time needed to spend sorting
    photos. the more photos it sees the better it gets.

    once again, i have a computer so i can do *less* work. the more work
    the computer can do for me the better off i am.
    why would anyone tag a temporary file? why would anyone care what the
    newsreader does internally?

    i edit a post, maybe saving a draft to finish at a later time, which is
    tracked by the newsreader app. i don't care where it's stored or in
    what format. the newsreader handles all of that.
    of course i store the initial full backup. where in the world did you
    get the idea i didn't? it's on the same drive as the incrementals.
    why wouldn't it try?
    ah, the elitist card.

    i understand computers, but as you say, most people don't nor do they
    care to and aren't interested in digging through the file system to
    find things. they just want to get work done.
    it's not stupid at all. there's no need to backup hibernation data, nor
    is it stored in the vm swap files anyway. there's a separate file for
    that, assuming hibernation is even enabled.
    it is an advance in technology. it is a huge time saver. i'm far more
    productive than i ever was before lightroom came along.
    you clearly don't understand lightroom.

    they do not.
    very wrong.
    also wrong.
    you clearly don't.

    yet another twist.

    the console app shows what gets written to stdout and stderr, and in
    the unlikely event you write to another file for some reason, it can
    read that too.

    meanwhile, most people don't look at log files.
    open it.
    most people wouldn't know what anything in the log files mean.

    most people are *not* geeks nor do they care to be.

    i store photos too, and they live on a network server so they are
    accessible to multiple machines.

    there's no need to have terabytes in every machine, or a copy of every
    photo in every machine.

    quite a bit actually.

    the system & editing app along with the rest of the apps will be on ssd
    and therefore everything will be much faster.

    the movie can be on a normal hard drive.
    nope. standard normal day to day usage.
    i have, and i'm not disappointed at all. 802.11n is quite comfortable.
    cables are very last decade and most people don't need 100gb networks
    most laptops do *not* have two hard drives, however, some people might
    swap *out* the internal dvd drive (not in) for an ssd, if there is an
    internal dvd drive at all, that is.

    that was then. this is now.

    people also used manual typewriters long ago too. there's no reason to
    go back to that.
    that says there are 3638 games in the database. that's nothing.

    there are roughly 650,000 apps available for ios devices and 600,000
    apps for android devices, and then there's windows and mac os x apps in
    addition to that.

    you really think that very many people use dos these days? seriously?

    btw, what image editor do you use on dos? this ought to be good.
    i claimed no such thing.

    users don't care what language an app is written in. what they care
    about is getting work done and they look for apps to help them do that.
    how many people actually use them, versus gcc?
    actively migrating to something more modern. imagine that.
    that's all part of the operating system.
    it's still in the minority.

    there are far, far more people using something *other* than cobol.

    mobile devices is where it's at these days, not cobol legacy systems.
    so we're up to two now?
    microsoft is faltering. they've stagnated for the last decade, the
    company is poorly managed, the ceo is a loud-mouthed blabbering idiot
    who may be forced out for incompetence and microsoft is about to ship
    what is likely to be yet another dud.

    they're riding on windows and office dominance, which is going to run
    out one day.

    how long do you think people are going to keep using windows and
    office? that isn't going to last forever. pc sales are down, while
    tablet and smartphone sales are up, and unfortunately for microsoft,
    they don't have anything competitive in the tablet and smartphone
    so what?

    the kin is another example in a line of failures, and more importantly,
    it's a symptom of a bigger problem within microsoft. the fact they even
    shipped the kin says a lot about how screwed up they are.
    windows 3.x and certainly windows 95 were not. think about that.

    there won't ever be a kin 2 and windows phone will at best be a distant
    third place player. it's an ios & android world going forward.
    not that many listen to microsoft anymore. they are listening to apple
    and google, as they look toward the future.
    perhaps you need to switch browsers. the ones i use are not slow. in
    fact, they're faster than they used to be and keep getting faster (same
    hardware too).

    You probably had a video driver issue. Was you monitor designed to be
    rotated? The Viewsonic was.
    PeterN, Aug 10, 2012

    The app does not know that the screen is rotated.
    So it's not a problem of the app.

    Go ask your OS and video driver to work correctly or ask your
    money back.

  13. You could simply agree that your window manager _in_this_specific_
    _case_ behaves suboptimal, and that a different behaviour would
    be better (as in more intuitive or requiring less actions from
    the user). Even though it doesn't bother you personally.[1]

    Would that be so hard?


    [1] I teach computers new tricks, so I know a bit about what
    is simple and what is hard or impossible. I am due to that
    rather allergic to any unnecessary work the user has to do ---
    not only because the user is often enough me. A click here,
    a click there ... that accumulates.
    I don't have the power to change closed source software,
    nearly nobody has[2], but that doesn't mean I have to swallow
    it hook, line and sinker without a complaint.

    [2] And that's a problem. Not only if the few who have the source
    go bancrupt, but also if they don't listen enough or don't
    have the manpower to change annoyances ...

    Presumably it was designed to be rotated: it was claimed to have tat
    ability and was sold with the Radius software.

    I suspect it was more than the video driver and had something to with
    the way the various procedures called it up.

    But it was a long time ago. I can't now remember which machine I was
    using at the time or which operating system. It may have been NTx.x.

    There's some aspect to all computers and software systems that is
    suboptimal in some way. This one is so minimal that I feel that
    anyone who tries to make a big deal out if it is doing so just to
    either dick-wave about the fact that their's doesn't or simply wants
    to create a problem where none exists.

    Until it came up in the newsgroup, I wasn't even aware that not all
    systems require the clicks. Now that I'm aware, I still don't give a
