Re: xplorer2 t-shirt

Will you take special orders for size and color?

Sounds like it could cost more than the software.

Re: file count column

OK, now we're talking. A little Latin bible verse and some 17th century literature. Kilmatead is BACK. While your visit to Ms Mitchell's former residence seems to have left a scar on your psyche, that does not justify including her in the great authors of the human race. She, along with Billy Ray Cy...

Re: file count column

No, I did not know what stacking was. In reading your posts I tend to ignore all the tech stuff (unless the issue being discussed applies to me - and this one doesn't) and concentrate on the literary stuff. While I acknowledge the use of the alliterative, are you suggesting that in all the world's l...

Re: file count column

No, he does not deserve bonus points for a "Gone With The Wind" reference - it is MUCH to mainstream. We only award Kilmatead bonus points when the reference is very obscure and requires research to figure it out. :P

Kilmatead,

Love the story! One of your stories is always a great way to start my day.

Re: New to xplorer2

I think that captures the essence of the Nikos philosophy of user interface design. Or, put another way, how many user complaints does it take to get Nikos to change the X2 user interface? Not sure yet, we will find out when X2 gets that many users. :D

Re: About comments...

Ha!! Kilmatead, how does it feel being called old by that young whippersnapper? I am old, so to ME, you are young. Its all relative. But I agree with Enternal's comments about the "value added" by the non-technical aspects of your posts.

Re: About comments...

As Robert Browning wrote: “Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for?” And so, too, Kilmatead's prose help extend my reach and improve my grasp. Not only by helping me with X2 related issues but also with life and literature. Yes, some of his references are beyond the gra...

Re: New to xplorer2

No way do I believe Kilmatead would automate responses. They would be long, informative and filled with literary (and other) references. I like that old Greek saying. Very "Zorba"! However, Just because someone is a bystander at one dance, does not suggest they have never danced or do not know what ...

Re: New to xplorer2

I LIKE Hel's thought of having Kilmatead be the author of X2. Not only would X2 be much nearer to perfect (though, as Nikos suggests, never actually reaching that level), but the manual would be a literary tour de force. With Kilmatead as the author, and Nikos as the official thorn in his side (thus...

Re: happy birthday xplorer2

Nikos,

I read your BD blog post and found it very interesting and enjoyable reading.

Congratulations to you and your 'baby' on its 10th BD. :beer: Here's to beer money!

Re: deskrule build 1.0.26

Fine! Have it your way. No remembrance. Then no need to bind anything in your skin. Still it would be a shame to let all that prime Irish hide go to waste. Possibly use it as the medium on which a painting is created by a great Irish artist. Then you will be part of something memorable, but NOT the ...

Re: deskrule build 1.0.26

Yes, the "news" about the book bound in human skin has been all over the web. As you say, it was not that unusual in the past. And since human skin has been likened to pig skin (at least medically) I am sure "we" make a good book covering. Turning your writings into a book (I think that should inclu...

Re: scrap question

Awww! Do you feel neglected? Do you feel unappreciated in your own time? Does it seem like you put all this great stuff out into the universe and no one is paying attention? Welcome to my world. If it makes you feel any better this issue is common among those with high IQ's and great wit.

Re: deskrule build 1.0.26

I kind of like the idea of Soylent Green. Rather than rotting underground or sitting in an urn over the fireplace, at least we can do something to benefit others. For some, that might be the only time they actually do that. For those that ARE sentimental, they can keep a can of grandpa (or grandma) ...
