    Can someone tell me how to make Window's window stay in focus?

    I don't know who's the smart one is at MS who dropped the ball on this and made the mistake of allowing a window to take away focus from the window someone is working with. If I did I'd shove forks in his eyes.

    Has anyone ever been typing a LONG thread or document only to have Window's update (or anything else) pop-up and before you even have time to see it you already typed a letter that corresponds to the "(R)estart now" button? :banghead:

    I just about put my fist through a 24" monitor over that shit today. I lost HOURS of data entry. :banghead:

    "Specifies the time, following user input, during which the system keeps applications from moving into the foreground."

    Not exactly sure what that means. Do they mean ANY input? So I have to sit and do nothing for whatever time 00030d40 is before something can pop into the foreground? Excluding my gf of course. Seems like no matter what I'm doing she pops up.

    4D? They lie! Can it model a PC chassis with exact dimensions?

    yes and no that hexidecimal is 200seconds. however while you can manually adjust it if you delete the millisecond translation at the end of that string (what i did) it instead flashes in your tool bar (a diffirent setting) and doesnt steal the forground. Works on mine anyway. Give it a go have someone messege you or w/e lmk if it doesnt work for you ill give you another way. Iv got multiple ways to solve problems but im goin to give you the method that is easiest first and work my way slowly to harder. That and i really like it when people follow up makes me feel a little less dead inside.
