If you are so smart, why can't you spell taught* or thread** correctly? You are a part of MENSA and yet cannot even use, or at the very least find, a simple spell check function?

I do not walk around bragging of my intelligence. And intelligence is in no way knowledge, everybody should know that, I know I do. If you bothered to UNDERSTAND (not READ, it is not the same) both original post and my reply, you would realise what I wanted to say. Since you haven't, I will make it more simple: "I am highly intelligent, like you, but that is not an excuse to attack people moderating forums", or "I am highly intelligent, like you, but I do not think your reasoning is valid, and this is why..."

Because English is not my native language. I do read it very well, and write it fairly good, but I use Firefox built-in spell-check for English spelling nightmare, and automatic spell-check is never perfect. My language, Serbian, was reformed in 1818 on Johann Christoph Adelung's "Write as you speak and read as it is written" principle, so our words do not have extra letters at all, one phoneme = one letter. On that principle, that same principle would be written as follows: "Vrajt ez ju spik end riid ez it iz vriten", something like that.

So writing is English is very tiresome, and spell-checking even more. When combined with with the lack of time, I sometimes do not even check what I have written. And considering that from 7 billion people only 508 million are first/second language English speakers, it is a miracle how good people write English on the World Wide Web.

If you feel you want to discuss this further, please move it from this tHread and post a link.

The latest version of Rosetta Stone is version 4, which I do not have. I'm very happy with version 3.4.5 and have many lessons left to do!
I wish I could buy TRS, but I just can't. I have a very old sameple (v 1.7?) from when they released CD with beginner lessons in 10 languages on 1 CD. It doesn't play well with WINE. Installs, but crashes frequently.

Stripboard Magic

This is used for designing electronic circuit board layouts on Veroboard/Stripboard for small hobby projects for which etching a circuit board would be unnecessarily complicated or expensive. You can also use it to design the schematic and even get it to do the layout automatically - this last is not necessary and is definitely not recommended as it is poor.
This Windows software was from Ambyr who seem to have disappeared. It won't run properly under Wine (not on my PC anyway).

I've looked at 17 different pieces of software and none will run under Linux or Wine and adequately design stripboards, except perhaps "DIY Layout Creator" - see my next posting.

DIY Layout Creator

This is used for designing electronic circuit board layouts on Veroboard/Stripboard for small hobby projects for which etching a circuit board would be unnecessarily complicated or expensive. It's a Beta version which is rapidly getting there. Unfortunately it is too slow, perhaps because it is written in Java which I think is interpreted. If this was converted to a compiled language (C++?) for Linux would it solve it?

I've looked at 17 different pieces of software and none will run under Linux or Wine and adequately design stripboards. (See my previous post about "Stripboard Magic".)

I use Qucs and it works fine. (Simulation)
http://qucs.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html

I've used a number of others built upon spice.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPICE

Take a look at
http://www.gpleda.org/index.html
http://pcb.gpleda.org/
http://gerbv.gpleda.org/

There are a bunch of other open source PCB design apps with varying functionality.

I have used pads before also.

I would like to see MagicJack available on Linux.

Lacking that I would really like to see a detailed explanation of how to run Linux (specifically PuppY Linux Lupu v5.2) in Windows under Virtual Box. This would allow MaagicJack running in Windows while Puppy is running in a VirtalBox window. I have run Puppy under Qemu, but it is excruciatingly slow. I have heard that VirtualBox is much faster, but I can't muddle my way through the installation.

MagicJack is already coming to Linux.

It still surprises me that the Linux command line, usually so powerful, can't do that by default (yes, I know you can turn on options in the kernel that'll let you do this, but even that doesn't work as well as the Mac version).

Good for Linux....

I would like to see something ported to Linux to allow you to read and write to UNIX file systems, whether they are encrypted or not.
