FusionCash / How Many?
« on: May 20, 2020, 02:35:31 pm »Message ID: 1325466
Just curious, but how many penny DQ credits would you claim before you just get tired of clicking and go do something else?

Off-Topic / More New Technology
« on: May 13, 2020, 08:44:29 am »Message ID: 1324744
I took another step up today when I set up my new Garmin tracking device and synchronized it to my phone as well as provided reports to my cardiology team. I tried until I was blue in the face to get a pulse reading I was confident in, now I just need to look at a screen. My wife has used a FitBit for years, but I never wanted to spend the money until I got this one as part of my surgery and treatment the Insurance paid $120,000 for. However I did order a new Motorola Moto G6 Smartphone to sync it to, since I got it on sale for $99 and my old G4 was about 5 years old and starting to fall apart.

I am so thankful to live in this modern age.

Off-Topic / Lockdown Haircut Without Exposure to Covid-19

This has me seriously considering it if I can find a way to deal with the time differences.

Off-Topic / Toilet Paper Shortage Solution
« on: March 24, 2020, 12:57:55 pm »Message ID: 1318016
If you find yourself in short supply with none available at the store, you can extend what you have extensively with this simple strategy.

When you finish your job, tear off one square of TP and fold it in half, then fold it in half again so you can tear of the corner where the center of the sheet comes together to form a hole large enough to slip your middle finger through.

Use this finger to clean up the mess and gather the remaining segments to slide over the finger to remove the residue and use the hole you tore off to clean under your fingernail.

That should put you in a position that washing your hands will get you ready for the next job.

Keep in mind that if you have a squeamish partner you live with, this operation can be accomplished by any willing   volunteer.

Off-Topic / What happened to Oldbuddy?
« on: March 01, 2020, 07:49:46 am »Message ID: 1314935
Hello everyone,

You can not imagine how happy I am to be back on, FusionCash forum.  I still have a long way to go, to get back even close to where I was before the uneventful catastrophe that took place in the middle of February.

I ended up in the hospital undergoing a quadruple bypass heart surgery.  Even worse, before I recovered from the surgery I discovered that my computer and brain had really undergone a meltdown and my Microsoft account was a mess and all kinds of things happened to various projects, so much that I just decided to start over and now I'm rebuilding everything from scratch. on a smaller scale.

This is something I want to do anyway, because I'm cutting way back on the amount of time I spend online. This post exceeds that limit of concentration, so I am going for breakfast.

I won't go into a lot of detail but I just want to let you know what the underlying problem was. so you'd understand more about what happens going forward and I can only hope to eventually see you as often.

I can hardly wait for "March Forth" (My Favorite Day)

Off-Topic / Simple Solution

I found a new tool today that helps me get the Smart Searches done in the Video section. It's a countdown timer website that I open in another tab so it shows the time left on the tab and even rings an alarm when it's finished. No more guessing.

Off-Topic / How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg?

He still has four legs, just because you call the tail a leg doesn't make it one.

Off-Topic / Amazon Echo Show
« on: December 02, 2019, 06:28:44 am »Message ID: 1303426
We have had the Echo Dot for a couple of years and still get a kick out of it, so when I saw the Echo Show on sale for Cyber Monday I ordered the 8 inch one for the kitchen. That seems to be the best size from all the reviews I read.

Anyone else getting one?

Off-Topic / Addicted to speed
« on: December 01, 2019, 08:02:07 am »Message ID: 1303227
I started noticing that some of my friends (that also use computers), have newer machines that were a lot faster than my old clunker.  Then it came to my attention that there is a new product online call a hybrid solid state hard disk drive.  It has regular storage like all the old style hard drives, but it also has an eight GB solid-state drive built in where it keeps all the most used software (like you're operating system) and only goes to the slower hard drive when it needs something.  They claimed that it increases the speed of your computer by 3 to 5 times.

Well after reading a lot of reviews and comments by other people who have tried these I decided to bite the bullet and go for one myself and I'm extremely happy that I did.

I love new toys anyway!

FusionCash / Now AutoHotKey use

I set up AutoHotKey to fill in the reasons I didn't finish a Tap Research survey and it makes it quick and easy.

Offers / My Survey Miracle
« on: October 19, 2019, 10:14:26 am »Message ID: 1297639
Rather than complain about the thousands of surveys that I have taken without this miracle coming to light, I am just thrilled that I finally found it.  :heart:  :star:  :heart:

I recently shared how happy I was to find voice recognition in my Windows 10, so I can save my Arthritic fingers from suffering through all the survey I take, but my most recent discovery overshadows that by far.

AutoHotKey is a Script utility that has been around forever, but I never knew it. It does way more than what I need, but yesterday I installed it very simply, wrote up a custom script in my text editor and ran it just before I start taking surveys this morning.

Now when a survey asks for my age I simply type control a, or for my zip code control Z and even more exciting to me is when one of those text boxes comes up that tells me to fill in two or three sentence to answer the question, I have a list of simple short codes I can type in, to fill a whole paragraph in a second, such as   >fc to tell about my favorite car, or >mv to share my favorite movie.

For those who think this may be too technical, here is a short example of the script I used today;

;~~~~~~ My Survey Script ~~~~~

^a::
Send, 81 ;My Age
return

^z::
Send, 97224 ;My Zip
return

::>fc:: This is my canned response that will be filled in when I type the code into the text box and can be as long as I want it to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~
Once I save the script (survey.ahk) all I do is right click on it and select Run Script.
I leave my text editor open while I work so I can make updates, save them and run the script again very quickly.

I admit that I spent half a day to learn about this, but I just saved you most of that time right here.

Have Fun!
