Or Alan, u can use your lazy finger and copy/paste it in your address bar.
Then you can stick that finger back where it came from.

I'll create a link if and when I want to. How's that?

Or you could've read the (Nov. 17, 2005) Jan Ozer says the winner is - Vegas!!! thread :-)

And jaydeee, I think everybody would appreciate if you could use your finger to copy the entire URL next time, including the "dArticle.aspx?CategoryID=54&" part that was missing from the middle, without which it is not possible to actually go to these reviews by pasting into the address bar.

So how about being a nice boy now and thanking Joran and AlanC for volunteering to research the site to find the complete URLs and enter them here, without complaining or using rude language in any way?

jaydeeee, if you look at my post you won't find your name in there. In other words it wasn't directed at you.

I don't think you can accuse me of having a lazy finger or anything else seeing as how I went to the trouble of writing the LinkCreator.

And the idea of the LinkCreator isn't to make life easier for you as the poster. It's to make life easier for those of us that want to follow your links.

Happy New Year.

>>>Because I'm a numb skull <<<

Ooooo - smashes egg on own face. I was just "moded", face jace, no erase!!

I misread your post in your link (referring to hyperlinking).
I thought you were calling people numbskulls for not hyperlinking.

Nope, I was just plain lazy and expected others to copy/paste.

I eat crow and send apology.

Nope, I was calling myself a numbskull.

Apology accepted.

Alan, for some reason linkcreator has started opening up off screen somewhere where I can't get at it. I'm using a dual monitor set up. It's as though the default opening point got shifted. I know the program is running because I can minimize it, just can't see it or use it anymore. Any clues?
AlanC wrote on 1/5/2007, 1:26 AM
Jim, the linkcreator writes it's last screen position to the registry when you close the program. If for any reason these values are invalid then it will (should) default to centre screen.

It sounds like it got its knickers in a twist somewhere along the line. I'll have a look at it later today.

OK Jim, I have done a small mod which should overcome your problem and dibbkd has kindly uploaded the new version for me. Version 0.4 is here.

If you still can't see it then send me your email address and I'll knock something together for you.

Thank you very much Alan! Seems to work fine.. I love this little gem and I'll try not to break it again...

AlanC wrote on 1/6/2007, 2:12 AM
I haven't tested it on a dual screen setup so I suppose anything can happen. The new version will default to top left if it's positioning values get corrupted so you should be ok now.

If you do break it again just let me know. I can write a couple of ines of code that will find it for you.


Edit: Sorry jaydeeee, we seem to have hijacked your thread. Now it's my turn to apologise.
