How to use GuruNet as a dictionary.
GuruNet makes a better WinXP dictionary than WordWeb.
The fonts and colors are better because it's IE underneath,
and IE has an accessability option which allows you to
override fonts and colors using a style sheet.

GuruNet is totally free
but they try to get you to subscribe to their service.

Worse, they don't tell you that you have to highlight ( select ) a word
( which is a double-click in my Visual Studio.NET )
before you Alt-Click it ( or Ctl-Click, as I've set it up ).

If I don't double-click the word first ( to select it )
it often goes off on some kind of a subscrion/web search ( often blank )
instead of giving me the dictionary definition.

Also, if you don't highligh the word first
and there's a web link on the clicked-line,
it goes to the web link instead of giving you the definition.

The actual dictionary is on-line but, with broadband,
it seems like it's coming from the harddisk.

Well, Relf is just a dumb moron. But, if you noticed, your little "hint"
was also crossposte to these very groups, you have not set any Fup2.

So the implications are obvious...

If you'd just take the time to checkout GuruNet,
you'd see that it has plenty of physics terms in it.

But if you do try GuruNet, before Alt-Clicking a word,
be sure to highlight the word you want the definition of
( or Cntrl-Middle-Click, as I've set it up, to avoid conflicts )
...They don't tell you to do that, but it is required.

GuruNet works from any WinXP location, including Visual Studio.NET.

It's a totally free on-line dictionary/encyclopedia/language-translator,
but you can get some extra physics-specific stuff if you pay them.

Here is one of their ( free ) definitions of entropy: <<
entropy, quantity specifying the amount of disorder or randomness
in a system bearing energy or information.
Originally defined in thermodynamics in terms of heat and temperature,
entropy indicates the degree to which a given quantity of thermal energy
is available for doing useful work
—the greater the entropy, the less available the energy.
For example, consider a system composed of a hot body and a cold body;
this system is ordered because the faster, more energetic molecules
of the hot body are separated from
the less energetic molecules of the cold body.
If the bodies are placed in contact,
heat will flow from the hot body to the cold one.
This heat flow can be utilized by a heat engine
( device which turns thermal energy into mechanical energy, or work ),
but once the two bodies have reached the same temperature,
no more work can be done. Furthermore,
the combined lukewarm bodies cannot unmix themselves
into hot and cold parts in order to repeat the process.
Although no energy has been lost by the heat transfer,
the energy can no longer be used to do work.
Thus the entropy of the system has increased.
According to the second law of thermodynamics,
during any process the change in entropy of a system
and its surroundings is either zero or positive.
In other words the entropy of the universe as a whole
tends toward a maximum.
This means that although energy cannot vanish
because of the law of conservation of energy ( see conservation laws ),
it tends to be degraded from useful forms to useless ones.
It should be noted that
the second law of thermodynamics is statistical rather than exact;
thus there is nothing to prevent
the faster molecules from separating from the slow ones. However,
such an occurrence is so improbable as to be
impossible from a practical point of view.
In information theory the term entropy is used to represent
the sum of the predicted values of the data in a message. >>

Hi Edwin ( Prodigy.COM, Microsoft ),

I hate to interupt your dialog with Rick,
but GuruNet does have something to do with Liux [ healthy ],
It's a free service that I constantly use
and it requires IE... it doesn't run on Linux.

GuruNet actually made me configure IE, now that I'm indirectly using it.

Second, apparently there is an app/utility called Hot Words that is

That only works from a browser ( Moz ), not from an app,
and not with an Alt-Click ( or Ctrl-Middle-Click, as I've configured it ).

I wonder why such a thing doesn't exist for Linux ? Hmm ?

Actually, it works from the Linspire Internet Suite, not Mozilla. Gecko is
not Mozilla. And no, you don't alt-click, you use the mouse to put the
cursor on the word.. less keyboard interaction.

As for Gurunet, you asked for a similar app. I provided a reference.

And you asked: " Yes ? So what ? "

VS.NET is what I'm most familiar with ( from coding )
and, when combined with GuruNet and a Google-Advanced quick-launch,
it's a vary powerful editor for e-mail and Usenet.

It's one key to start/stop keystroke recording ( which can be editited )
and I can write complex Visual Basic macros as well, if I choose to.

While the Linspire suite is interesting ( I just looked it up )
VS.NET has a much better genealogy and is better funded.

Eventually, I might have X.CPP replace VS.NET,
which would give me on-the-fly spell checking and quicker Google searches.
After all, I'd rather write C++ code than VB macros.

From GuruNet: << first commercial release of Smalltalk was
Methods from Digitalk in 1983, which later evolved into Visual Smalltalk.
In 1997, Smalltalk became an ANSI standard (X3J20).
See VisualWorks, Visual Smalltalk, VisualAge and Alto. >>

I was using a very similar system ( Lilth, a Modula-2 engine )

I had a thought.

What is a RDBMS, but a message receiver, that queues requests to change, or
to send data.

So, my idea is to hook up a sendmail queue. Then my multithreaded XML
parser, will take the messages, and, using a mutex, update the XML

I'm sure you can refine that idea somewhat with Relf, as your combined
programming skills don't quite reach that of a amoeba.

May I propose you two do that in alt.talk.idiots?

So, my idea is to hook up a sendmail queue.
Then my multithreaded XML parser will take the messages, and,
using a mutex, update the XML document, or send a response. >>

I thought you were already using e-mail and XML instead of a RDBMS.
Wouldn't the RDBMS be much faster ?

Hi John, Re: What handles transactions faster, sendmail or a RDBMS,

Just build both systems and run timming tests on them.

I'm guessing that the RDBMS would be much faster as it's optimized for that.

And I don't envy [Linus] one bit, Linux has take on a life of it's own,
leaving linus with fewer options than before.
You speak of /art/

Yet, the greatest artists speak of the process of creation like giving birth
to a child.

Linus would, of course, like Picasso or Marcel Duchamps, want Linux to have
a life of it's own...because that is the only measure of success.

Whereas Microsoft, and it's products, art ultimately tied to Bill Gate$.

And as his powers decline, so too, their use.

Because *He* -- could never /let/ /go/

Hi John, Bill Gates has even less control than Linus,
and Bill's products are much larger, with a much greater reach.
They have been around longer, and will probably have much longer lifespans.

Artist, true artists, don't care about such things, even avoiding such.

Bill's products are all wrapped in ego.

And ego always perishes, with the egoist.

Linux/Linus has no ego.

His is the collective.

And so, it lasts.

Once again, you lose an argument, you change the topic.

First you said "in use longer"; now you say "more desktop users".

At the point that Linux desktop users exceed XP users, you will say "has a 4

Hi Rick, You wrote: " that is a Message-ID and not a link. "

Stardard newsreaders make MIDs links when they're prefaced with news: ,
if your newsreader won't do that then just paste it into Google.

You wrote: << nowhere in that message is there any reference that says

Although you are probably too ineducable to reallize this,
Google violates of RFC 1036 ( quoted below )
by omitting the References header when a title changes: <<
2.2.5. References
This field lists the Message-ID's of any messages prompting the
submission of this message. >> ... <<
If the original message does have a " References "
line, the follow-up message should have a " References " line
containing the text of the original " References " line,
a blank, and the Message-ID of the original message. >>
__ http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1036.html

Combine the above with this from son of RFC 1036: <<
If the poster determines that
the topic of the followup differs significantly
from what is described in the subject,
a new, more descriptive, subject SHOULD be substituted
( With No Back Reference ). >> ^^^^^^
^^^^ ^^ ^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^
__ http://www.usenet-fr.net/fr-chartes/son-of-rfc1036.2.html

Where the term, " back reference " is defined as
the " Re: " tag at the start of a title,
...Not the References: line in the headers.

Thus one finds that Google violates RFC 1036
by mandating something more akin to this: <<
Because the title of a message MUST define the thread,
One MUST use " Re: " at the start of a title,
...Otherwise we MUST delete the References line. >>

You wrote: << I pay Federal income taxes.
Some Federal monies, funded by Federal income taxes, go to the states,
and some of that is used in state welfare programs. >>

So what ? I have exactly nothing to do with that.

No amount of newsreader changes will change the fact you keep posting
to sci.physics and refuse to stop.

Your inability to chane your behaviour when it is obvious that it
causes a problem for others is the key issue here.

It's also a word for a rich or influential person (from nobility?),
hence Nob Hill in San Francisco.

In Pennsylvania, "knob" means hill, hence Gobbler's Knob, Purple Knob,

Oh, I dunno; I find him mildly interesting, if only because his
code is perfect to indicate what *not* to do in a development
project. :-) There's also the challenge of decoding it to something
that's at least vaguely readable.

I'll have to find it, for example, but at one point I had "30 methods

incomprehensibility is a big, erm, plus in accomplishing that.

e.g. Take a look at this screen shot of X.CPP in my Visual Studio.NET:
