I am a software developer in Johannesburg, South Africa. I specialise in C# and ASP.NET, with SQL Server. I have, in some way or another, been involved in software development for about fourteen years, but always learning something new. At the moment that is WPF and MVVM.

comment How do I print two A5 documents on one A4?
Yes, I think converting the page to A4 is the smoothest way for now. Everything else I try, it halves the size of the A5, and prints 2 in an A5 size on the A4 paper.

comment How do I print two A5 documents on one A4?
It's not so simple, e.g. I have a page border on the A5 that now wraps the whole A4, and alignments to page sides etc. all for a loop. I think it will be easier to fix the layout by taking an image, or PDF, and printing two of them per page.

comment Why do I lose my 3G connection when I connect to my new wireless access point?
I've added some of route's output, doesn't mean much to me, but I understand the PC seems to be looking to the AP for internet, not my 3G.

comment How can I receive images from a webcam?
I'm not trying to use any software. I'm looking for software to receive images from the webcam, not use it for Skype or something.

comment Clone current host OS to a guest virtual machine
@pistaloper I'm no longer using Virtual Box but VMWare Player, and its cousin VMWare vCenter Converter does a beautiful job.

comment How can I remix a rock track on my PC?
I was asking what software to use for a task and how to use it. If that is your "off topic" I have only sympathy for you and the life you must lead.

comment How can I make an email template more accessible?
No, because I've been hitting that Create New button all along. I still can't find a way to attach my CV to the Send Email action I create with it.

comment How can I make an email template more accessible?
1. When I hit New (not Create New), I get a menu of options that includes New email to: and Custom. They seem the only suitable options. Neither offer the option to add an attachment to the email. I don't want to create a new email template; I already have one under Forms, with an attachment. I want to add something to the UI to allow me to easily, without a million mouse clicks, to sent that template as an email instance to a chosen recipient.

comment How to change the colour of an logo or symbol?
No @Ferd, I'm looking to at light pink logo pixels and dark pink logo pixels, that should all be the same pink logo pixels.

comment GIMP: change one colour to another?
The two Gimp solutions given so far above aren't much better, so it looks like I'm stuck with it.

comment GIMP: change one colour to another?
This also only seems capable of operating on a clicked region of contiguous pixes, not on all of the selected pixels. Like I commented above, this colorizes the pixel I invoke it on. The Select by Color has selected hundreds of pixels all over the image.

comment Why are my Word 2013 page size options different to other Word 2013 page size options?
True. I just installed a few printers and my paper size list is now long and purdy.

comment Is there any way of finding out the printable area of a specific page type for a printer?
When I try by installing only a printer driver, and no physical device, I only get warned that my margins are very small, and asked if I want to proceed. There is no 'Fix' option. This makes me think that sometimes the printer can tell the computer it's margin dimensions.

comment Word Processor Margins versus Printable Area of Paper
My situation was that I thought my paper size was A5. It looked so much so I didn't measure, but it was some mm smaller. So printing on A5 with modified margins (all carefully measured with a ruler) did solve the immediate problem for me.

comment Word Processor Margins versus Printable Area of Paper
So a practical way of producing a document that has margins outside of the printable area of the paper is to use a virtual larger paper size, then physically trim the printed documents to reduce the eventual real margin.

comment Enhancing a scanned document with Gimp
The fuschia colours aren't all uniform, so I would have to select everything that isn't white, or that is white, and move that. How can I make all the white uniform?
