I’ve just been over to BlogChalking and, “chalked” my blog. Basically, I get a happy smiley pointy haired icon that when you hover over it gives you some information such as: United Kingdom, Leicestershire, Leicester, Leicester, English, Richard, Male, 21-25, ODP, web development. which has something to do with weblogs 🙂 I’m so easily please at the moment – heh.
I’ve just gone and generated my blogger code and it is: B4 d++ t+ k+ s u– f i o+ x e+ l c (decoder). Yeah, it says I’ve been blogging for much longer than this Blog has been active (so longer than 3 days 🙂 ), but I did maintain one over at Slashdot, but I felt I needed a bit more ‘control’ over it. I had already zapped the old entries from Slashdot (although I have HD backups) for some inane reason, but don’t expect them back quite yet.
I run Windows 2000 Professional as a desktop PC (my server runs Debian Linux: using the best tools for the best job IMHO). But one thing I do like about Linux is the ‘auto-complete’ function (start typing a path, hit tab, and the path is filled in for you), but Win 2k doesn’t support it. Or does it?. Yep – once these simple instructons have been followed:
- Go Start->Run->’regedit’ (this starts the registry editor: so be careful!)
- Go to “My computer”->”HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”->”SOFTWARE”->”Microsoft”->”Command Processor”
- Change the Command Processor key “CompletionChar” to ’09’ (it doesn’t matter if you have it in decimal or hexidecimal, as since the value is below decimal 10, it’s the same in both). 09 is the ASCII code of the TAB key (and that takes me back to my BBC programming days *sigh*)
- Exit regedit
Next time you are at the command line (Start->Run->cmd) try typing something like “cd Doc” and hitting TAB, it’ll change to ‘cd “Documents and Settings“‘ for you. Yipee!
Well, I’m currently joint 17th in the category of ‘Best Editall’ (with 5 votes: 2%) and joint 11th in ‘Best Ambassador’ category (with 8 votes: 4.8%) of the ‘November 2002 ODP Mozzie Awards’: and with less than 24hrs left of voting to go, it doesn’t look like I’m going to win either category. Drat. But first time I’ve really been nominated, so I suppose I shouldn’t hope for too much 🙂
It’s now 8.58am, and just about time I thought about going to sleep!
