Re: Chicken Nugget - was - Anybody here using TWBlue?

Flor Lynch
 

Having updated from version 3.1 (the verion I started out with) to version 3.2:
 
Yes, the deletion of all tweets in the focused buffer or timeline now works. However, when I re-enabled the storing of all tweets to disk, I got all of the tweets that I thought had gone during the past three days. So, they were’t really ‘gone’ at all. I’ll wait for a bit and try to clear my home buffer or some other existing timeline, and then we’ll see if the thousands of tweets return again when I restart Chicken Nugget.

And the clearing of individual timelines apparently works for some.
 
There is another way to get rid of all tweets, but it’ll get rid of all of them – sent, direct, mentions, etc.
“Within the Chicken Nugget folder in App_Data, delete the folder with numeric values.”

Thanks, Flor. I've now gotten rid of a bunch of tweets. Will leave that radio button checked for right now and probably will uncheck it before I shut down so that the tweets will store for a while. Seems like sort of a stupid thing to have to do but, it will serve the purpose for now, at least.

Hi Barb (& All interested).
 
I’ve found a passable solution. In the Application Menu, Alt-a, o for Options: TAB ovver to the two radiobuttons, one of which reads, “don’t store tweets to disk” (Requires restart). You want to check this one. Ok your choice, and CLOSE, then reopen CN. Now, only the most recent tweets will fill the bufferSleeping half-moon. So, if you’re tired of so many tweets, that’s what to do. Your store will build up while your session is running, and when you close again, it will refresh to most recent counts.

I like it but there were sure easier ways of doing things with the Qube. For any of you using Chicken-Nugget, can you tell me how to clear my buffers? When I use the key combination mentioned in the help section or go to the timeline and enter on clear timeline, I get a message that the program is not responding and it won't clear them. I've written to the developer and, once again, no answers are provided.
 
I'm using Windows Vista Home, JAWS11, and IE8.

Re: underline detection, jaws

Yes and with the jaws settings as well. By going into the jaws settings for a specific program do insert plus F2 and choose setting center . To modify all the jaws settings do insert F2 and choose setting center and then once that come up then doCtrl plus Shift and the D key and it will open up the all application settings and anything you do in there will affect all application.

Also reading the manual is helpful as well.  Just go to the desktop and then click on jaws and then tap the alt key and go to help and tap on that and choose the help files and read and learn.

We tell you this as Jaws is just such a huge application and I think most of us don’t even use ¼ of all the features in it.

BTW: there is a Jaws list just for JAWS and you might want to join it as well.

Give me an mpower any day. The processor difference is minor, functionality difference, is again, minor, lasts longer, needs less repair, and things like resetting it, opening keyword, was much quicker. It can also (though horribly) play midi files, and accepts CMD.exe commands, which, unfortunately have been removed from the apex. Whenever you try, you get a nasty the system cannot find the file specified. But all honestly, a 532 MH processor? HIMS could put in a 1 GHZ, 2 yearers later.

Yeah, pretty much. It could use a major hardware upgrade, though
I don't hate the Apex.

Thanks to all

Gene
 

I have received a lot of messages off list, too many to answer conveniently individually.  So I'll thank those who sent messages in one list message. 
 
I very much appreciate all the good wishes I've received and still may receive.  It was a fine New Years Eve present.  Thanks to all who have or will send messages.

No, January 6th. (That's the feast of the Three Wise Men, or the Three

Of course, technology itself in no way observes such traditions. But often

Hi all,

Yes, Christmas has twelve days, from December 25 to January 6. I
figure if Muslims can celebrate Ramadan for a month, and Jews can
celebrate both Chanukah and Passover for a week, then I'm entitled to
celebrate Christmas for twelve days. C'mon, folks, stand up for your
rights. Victor's correct, the liturgical calendar says Christmas lasts
twelve days, and that does not have anything to do with stores that
insist that Christmas starts on October first. Idiots!

Re: Christmas.

Gene
 

I looked on Wikipedia and, though I didn't read the article in detail, phrases I saw indicate that the twelve days may be considered to begin on Christmas itself or the day after.  I didn't read enough to learn more, for example, which denominations start counting on which day.
 
I also didn't look at the Greek Orthodox Church section of the article so my comments refer to Western practices.
