Re: Pathfinder and ALT-F4

Dave AA6YQ
 

If the mouse cursor is in Pathfinder's target callsign textbox, then
striking F4 means "activate the 4th search button". Depressing the ALT
key while activating the 4th search button means "use the callsign's
home call", e.g. V4/AA6YQ would result in a lookup on AA6YQ.

If the target callsign textbox is empty, you'll see the error message
reported below.

If you place the mouse cursor in Pathfinder's results display and
strike ALT-F4, Pathfinder will terminate.

Dave, AA6YQ

I should have added that I make frequent use of Windows keyboard
commands such as ALT-F4, ALT-TAB, CTL-ALT-DEL, Windows Key+R, etc.
instead of using the mouse. I never happened to try ALT-F4 with PF
before because I usually leave it running all the time.

Because ALT-F4 is a standard Windows command to kill, close, the
application. It's habit forming for those of us who actually find the
keyboard as a faster method than using a mouse.

Re: Pathfinder using excessive CPU while sitting on QRZ.com

vk3ama <groups1@...>
 

Hi Dave,

I have observed that this high CPU usage is dependant on the which Flash
ads are loaded. Some are fine, some, which I suspect are badly coded,
cause problems. Also, some pages have up to 5 Flash ads, others have 1
or 2. The more Flash ads per page, the higher the CPU.

Running 3GHz dual-core desktop, 1.5GB RAM, XP PRO SP2 here.

Because Buckmaster returns its results as an image rather than as text
from which Pathfinder can extract the required information.

Hi Rich,

To save you some looking, here's a link...

Look towards the end of the page for the examples of the registry
entries. No need to use third-party executables (which may contain
unwanted code).

Has worked for me over the last 6 months without any problems.

Hi Ken,

I also use that extension with Firefox . It works great. But, Pathfinder
uses IE so Flash needs to be disabled for IE. Googling will yield two
simple registry files that allow Flash to be disabled/enabled for IE.
Once disabled, Pathfinder doesn't display the Flash ads (some are more
CPU intensive than others) and CPU usage goes way down. The flashing GIF
images are a distraction but not a real problem.

Is it just me, or is LotW simply not being used any more? Out of the
540 contacts I have in my current DXKeeper log, only 7 have actually
QSL'd
via LotW.
That's a pretty dismal percentage.

I had hoped that it would have been accepted much better by
this time.
I don't
make any attempt to seek out stations that use LotW, but I
would have thought the laws of chance would

Re: LotW circling the drain?

Dave 'Doc' Corio <dcorio@...>
 

I wish I still had my logs for the past 40 years to put into LotW.
Somewhere in the cross-country moves, all my old paper logs went
missing, and so did my QSL collection.

It may very well be my style of operating now. I'm a very casual
operator, many times not getting on the air for a few days at a time.
Even then, many times I just have it on in the background and listen to
what Spot Collector announces. I don't do any contesting, although once
in a while I'll pounce on a rare one that IS in a contest. I also don't
filter SC by LotW, so not actively trying to get them specifically.

Just thought that even a random distribution of LotW users would
have a better showing. I even end my digital QSOs with a tag about
QSLing via LotW and e-QSL. Ah, well. Glad to hear it's picking up! I
wasn't giving up on it, but good to know it's not going down the tubes!
