    The file is long and you can't save it for later reading because MS
    Officino de Redmond, WA Los Estados Unidos (AKA hell del diablo
    satan) codes and loads the pics somehow and they don't save.

    Note to hackers. You can play with the URL to get other notes.

    Question for hackers:

    Any one know how to save the page properly?

    Answer:

    You do a

    File | Edit with MS Word

    in MSOE and save the page as html in the evil word app. Yay!

    BTW, you do this from the URL, not the improperly saved (religious
    cracks welcome :) ) page. Word will download the page. ZA or other
    firewall users will need to allow Word to access the internat.

    Damn! I'm not using the ol' noodle today. The files folder that Word
    saves (like when MSOE saves a page) is 663K so I'll print what I
    saved to pdf995 and delete the web pages.
    No. MSOE gives you that progress thingy and it's a modal dialog. You
    get the alligator growl (jungle sounds "oops!") if you try to do
    anything with that instance of MSOE while a save is in progress.

    Before I posted, I did "view source" which brought up UltraEdit. The
    MSO crap is plain as day. I've seen it before and it's pure MSBS.

    Thanks for the wake up ;)

    I got 890 k with the pdf995 print driver. Are you using Open Office?
    I haven't figured out it's pdf stuff.<snip>

    Last time I went to Adobe's site, I couldn't find an Acrobat per se.
    IIRC, I couldn't find Distiller or Page Mill, either, just some new
    packages I've never heard of before.

    Ok.

    Sorry to digress, but my Uncle was in town this week. He's a retired
    Latin teacher (tutors rich kids now) and tennis pro as well as the
    family etymologist. I mentioned your name (as best I could pronounce
    it and eventually wrote it down for him) because you always give
    such great etymologies.

    He said it sounded Greek. Is that right? He searched his banks for a
    translation and came up blank - got me thinking it was a psuedonym
    but a web search with "definition" added just brought up discussions
    where you defined words.

    So what's the skinny on your name? Uncle Joe's got me curious.

    Best one I've heard yet was a Cajun whose last name in French meant
    young boy. His americanized (or anglicized) name is Young. In French
    it's Jeune Garcon` - he may have said "le Jeune Garcon`".

    Here's a new one on me:

    http://www.fonetiks.org and pick a language

    You can hover over the vowel(s) and it plays the sound.

    Used to be Netscape, right? Or was that Gecko?
    I get 111 pages to pdf *and* print preview with pdf995 and MSOE,
    respectively.

    When I print to a file with MSOE, I can only save as a .prn file
    which XP doesn't associate with any apps I have. I think you're
    supposed to be able to send it to a printer, but I can't remember
    what I read about that.
    Maybe, but I think it's MSOE. It saves other pages as html and
    sticks images, style sheets, JavaScript, etc. in a
    <page_title>_files directory. Might need to upgrade MSOE, but I've
    had this prob before and I've seen the ugly source code.

    <v:imagedata src="./notes1_m_2000_files/image003.wmz"
    o:href="file:///G:/ES2610/PLOTS/INTRO1_2.PLT"/>
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    That's wild. I'm saving to drive G: and that directory isn't there -
    wasn't created.

    </v:shape><![endif]--><![if !vml]><img width=552 height=211
    src="./notes1_m_2000_files/image004.gif"
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    that's where a normal pages pics would be save - never happens with
    this one.

    v:shapes="_x0000_i1026"><![endif]></span></span><o:p></o:p></span></p>

    I think your Mozilla is ignoring (doesn't recognize) the MSO crap
    and just finding the

    src="./notes1_m_2000_files/image004.gif"

    line - or whatever Mozilla does with the pics. NS used to *not* save
    images - a PITA. Can't remember what it does now.

    I also have a dummy postscript printer set up as an Apple laser
    writer. I can select that and print to file and change the extension
    to .ps - also 111 pages but over 2.7 MB !

    Or just back over the last part of the URL and it'll bring up a page
    with MS Word versions of the same documents. (There are .PDF links,
    too, but they don't work.)

    Hmmm... I did that

    That wasn't working this time, but now it does.

    Thanks.

    Opera 7 worked just fine. Load the whole thing then choose "Save with
    images as...". Make a separate folder for it so's not to jumble the
    whole thing up. BTW, that's one evil page, lucky I've recently got
    ADSL, on dial-up it would have taken a good part of the night.

  13. I read in sci.electronics.design that Active8 <>
    Print and scan. Unsophisticated, but easy.

    I don't see a problem. I can do right-click and choose View Image,
    and my browser URL bar displays:

    http://www.eng.warwick.ac.uk/staff/elh/elh_es261_notes/notes1_m_2000_files/image006.gif
    and I can save that.

    But it's a pretty big webpage. I did a View Source in Firefox (get
    it at mozilla.org) and while trying to scroll through it, it crashed.
    Maybe your problem is related to the size of the page, and your
    browser not working nicely with it.
    I'm not a hacker but often I go "up the tree" to see what else I
    can find on a website that the current page doesn't link to, such as:
    http://www.eng.warwick.ac.uk/staff
    or does that make me a hacker? You don't even have to be a scr1pt
    k1dd1e to do that.

    I used Mozilla - file-save as.

    If you go to http://www.eng.warwick.ac.uk/staff/elh/elh_es261_notes
    you will find the file, along with a couple of others, available in
    Microsoft Word format. Just save those.

    Hacker - programmer; likes to explore OS workings.

    You could extend that to someone who likes to hack around.

    White hat. Black hat.

    Cracker - criminal hacker.

    Remember Spy vs Spy? Someone's using those guys in a commercial
    lately.
     
  18. All three parts of the manual should total 359 pages but you have to
    go to the root directory to find them. Quite a find!

    Adobe just gets better and better and better.... ;-)

    You can see why I've stuck with V4 for most of my PDF tasks, and use
    V5 only for it's PNG capabilities.

    Every so often, when I try to save a web page, XP replies that "this
    web page cannot be saved" (or words to that effect.) I finally found
    out that I could edit the page with MS Word, then save that edited
    page.
