Scott, does F.lux allow you to customize all 4 monitors independently?No. But for a freebie, it ain't bad.
the site does NOT look or work well at 1600 x 900 or 1080p and that the whiteness should be toned down to some shade or tint of EE blue.One of my monitors runs that resolution, and it looks perfectly fine.
The whole point is this - there seems to be very little clamor over this, and there are just as many people who find the site pleasing and the color scheme appropriate. If they fix the issue to your satisfaction you'd have just as many people fussing about that (if not more).There is very little clamor from Experts in general--although we are the ones who might be expected to look at the site the most, and getting it to work the way WE want is an important part of the financial equation for EE.
getting it to work the way WE want is an important part of the financial equation for EE.If by "WE" you mean the entire Expert community, then that's a bit presumptuous on your part. You don't speak for me, as an example, since I'm satisfied with the new interface and have absolutely no trouble with the color scheme.
There are more than a few sites that permit the user to skin the interface.I think that's a great idea, but to presume that it's a simple matter to make a change like that is ... well, presumptuous (again). You have no idea of the changes needed to make something like this happen (nor do I), so it's hard to make the argument that it would be simple.
It ain't that retarded to ask to be able"Retarded" ... really?? That's somewhat beneath a person of your obvious intellect.
"Retarded" ... really??From Merriam-Webster; "slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development : characterized by mental retardation" You may want some PC synonym if you wish that combines inability, naiveté, foolishness and simplicity together with unhappy modifiers. 'Stupid' doesn't quite cut it, as foolish or stupid people may fail to grasp something, while mentally handicapped folks are unable to grasp something--big difference. Or you can use the word that has that meaning already. My request "ain't that retarded" which is to say it IS not made from ignorance, naiveté or an inability to grasp the issues involved, and should not be dismissed with scorn.
Works nicely in A2003.
If Me.FilterOn = False Then Me.Filter = "qryRepairItems.date between #" & Me.StartDate & "# and #" & Me.EndDate & "#" Me.FilterOn = True Me.cmdApplyFilter.Caption = "Remove Filter" Else Me.Filter = "" Me.FilterOn = False Me.cmdApplyFilter.Caption = "Apply Filter" End If
That works good in both.
If Me.cmdApplyFilter.Caption = "Apply Filter" Then Me.Filter = "qryRepairItems.date between #" & Me.StartDate & "# and #" & Me.EndDate & "#" Me.FilterOn = True Me.cmdApplyFilter.Caption = "Remove Filter" Me.Requery Else Me.Filter = "qryRepairItems.date between #1/1/1999# and #1/1/1999#" 'Me.FilterOn = False Me.cmdApplyFilter.Caption = "Apply Filter" Me.Requery End If
it enables *non*-web-designers to build web pages quickly and without any specialized knowledge because it’s merely a part of their workflow and not their livelihood.
Like I said, we've never done a good job leveraging our own content. I'm not really sure why either. No one else either seems to either and despite anything that's been tried, nothing's caught on.It isn't really that hard to figure out - and I've heard it several times when I referred to (my own) stuff at EE: The new reader is either not allowed to see the stuff or being bothered so much by attempts to get him to sign up that he gives up.
.. Which is why the majority of them post on UA (et al).Oh my - if you regard "arbitrary deleting of posts by various mods" to represent an issue at EE then by all means keep staying away from UtterAccess. The site is driven much like Scientology with a bunch of good people on the ground watched by a layered set of priests who cover over each other. At the top resides a god you never see or read anything from except when he sends you a personal rude blurb when you happen to express anything not agreed by the priests. And your posts are just silently deleted. No message, no explanation, no nothing.
So ... this somewhat random, and possibly arbitrary deleting of posts by various mods will likely further this dislike. I'm not sure if this happens on UA (et al) per se ... but I'm guessing not in the same fashion.
It's pretty obvious that it is an issue. When folks ask me why I go to church, I say that if you don't give grace an opportunity to enter your life, it won't. I'm reminded of the story of the corrupt judge and the widow. The judge eventually gives the widow justice because she hounds him relentlessly. Or the story the other day of the guy whose folks brought him into the country illegally as a child, and while they became citizens and he became a lawyer, it took him 12 years to win the right to practice. Or an acquaintance who has been shafted by workers' compensation for the last 12 years who may FINALLY get what all of his doctors have always said was his due.
It ain't going to get fixed unless TPTB are reminded that the site does NOT look or work well at 1600 x 900 or 1080p and that the whiteness should be toned down to some shade or tint of EE blue. It may be pretty obvious that some folks don't intend to fix it. It should also be obvious that other folks aren't going to quit asking.
And it's not like it is hard to do, either. Just git 'er dun.
