Using the RSS Downloader Plugin in ruTorrent Web Interface

ruTorrent is a web-based user interface (webUI) for the popular bittorrent client rTorrent. You access it through your browser from any computer connected to the internet. Apart from having an excellent, very much uTorrent-like user interface, it extends rTorrent’s functionality considerably through the use of plugins. You will be able to create torrents, use rss feeds, delete torrents with data, choose custom locations for data, use labels, sort your torrents by label, tracker, ratio, name, state, peers, seeds, creation date, etc, and more.
Plugins
On Feral servers ruTorrent is autoinstalled (using the Software Manager page) with a recommended set of plugins.
Explore all the available plugins. Should you wish to try any of them apart from those that came preinstalled with your ruTorrent, just upload them to rutorrent/plugins that is located inside your Default WWW location.
~/www/**username**.**servername**.feralhosting.com
IMPORTANT: there should be a separate directory for each plugin inside [b]rutorrent/plugins. To uninstall a plugin, just delete the whole dir with the plugin in it.[/b]
Currently available plugins (Feral recommended plugins appear in bold):
1: RPC — plugin for linking rtorrent and a web server (required for Feral); 2: erasedata — adds the “Delete with data” option to the context menu in the downloads area; 3: darkpal — a dark interface theme; 4: choose — adds a button to the new downloads dialog for comfortable navigation through the server file system; 5: сreate — adds a command for making torrents; 6: trafic — traffic registration subsystem; 7: RSS — RSS-feeds; 8: edit — real-time trackers list editing;9: throttle — separate speed limits for download groups; 10: retrackers — automatically adds required re-trackers for new downloads; 11: cookies — allows to configure a set of cookies for trackers that require cookie-based authentication;12: search — allows to customize search engines; [May give error “error: [21.01.2010 21:29:30] Error: torrent is doesn’t passed to rTorrent.”] 13: scheduler — configurable speed limits for downloading/uploading depending on hour of day and day of week; 14: autotools — automation functions (autolabel, automove); 15: datadir — allows to change data location on per torrent basis; 16: tracklabels — adds tracker autolabels to the categories pane; 17: ratio — separate ratio limits for download groups (requires rtorrent 0.8.5+); 18: seedingtime — additional column in the main view — shows date/time when a particular torrent finished downloading and started seeding (requires rtorrent 0.8.5+):
Using the RSS Downloader Plugin
**Please be very careful with this plugin**. Filters need to be setup correctly for it to download only 
what you want, and not everything in the feed. Errors in the setup may harm your ratio or, in the worst
scenario, destroy it completely.

**Do test your setup properly before configuring the plugin to autodownload!**
Set up your filters and leave the plugin running for about a day, then examine the results and verify that
your filters are actually filtering out the right stuff!
Click on the RSS Downloader button in the top toolbar. Add the URL of your feed. Add an alias for the feed — your feed will show up under this name in the RSS section of the left sidebar.
Click OK. If your feed contains a pass key in its URL and your tracker does not require a cookie to access the feed, RSS Downloader will connect to the feed and display the most recent items. It will not download any .torrents at this point.
Right-click on the feed alias in the left sidebar and choose RSS Manager.
We need to configure at least one filter for the plugin to use with the feed. Click the Add button and give your filter a name. Let’s say, we want to download everything in the feed.
Copy and paste the following line into the Filter field:
/()/i
Leave the Exclude field empty. From the RSS dropdown choose the alias of the feed the filter will be applied to (SCC in our case). Leave the directory field empty — RSS Downloader will download .torrents to the default location —/rutorrent/torrents — and load them from there. Be sure to tick “Don’t start the download automatically” — at this moment we are just testing our filters. The Label field is optional — if filled out, downloaded .torrents will be auto-labeled using this value (useful for sorting jobs by label).
The ? button allows you to test your filter in real time against the items in the feed. Click it, and RSS Downloader will respond with a number of matches, and highlight all matching items in the list.
Our filter correctly matched 15 items out of the 15 currently available in the feed. Press OK. RSS Downloader should download all .torrents in the feed and add them as stopped to the queue. Verify it, and if everything is working as it should, return to RSS Manager and untick the “Don’t start the download automatically” setting. Reload ruTorrent in your browser for the new settings to take effect.
Do test your setup properly before configuring the plugin to autodownload! Set up your filters and leave the plugin running for about a day, then examine the results and verify that your filters are actually filtering out the right stuff!
ADVANCED SCENARIOS
Download only .torrents with VA- in the name:
Download only .torrents with the words Pepe or Strict or Gypsy in the name (use the pipe sign | to separate tokens):
Download only .torrents with the words Pepe or Strict or Gypsy in the name, but exclude anything with 2006 in the file name:
Download only .torrents with the words weeds OR (prison AND break) OR (rescue AND me) OR heroes in the file name:
/(weeds|prison.*break|rescue.*me|heroes)/i
Please consult this tutorial for a more detailed overview of the syntax and usage examples (thanks to user drunkpitbull).
OTHER OBSERVATIONS
If you auto-installed ruTorrent from the software manager page, the default feed update interval is set to 30 min. Should you wish to change this setting, connect to your slot via FTP/SFTP and edit the following file:
/home/username/www/.../rutorrent/plugins/rss/conf.php
Consult with your tracker regarding the minimum allowed rss poll interval on this specific tracker (the tracker’s forum would be a good place to ask). Do not joke with it — your IP will most likely get banned by the tracker if you request the feed way too frequently.
WAFFLES.FM
Until further notice, Waffles.FM banned OVH IP ranges from accessing the website, while still allowing access to the tracker. You will thus be able to use your Feral box to download/upload stuff from/to Waffles.FM, but you won’t be able to access Waffles.FM website using Feral VPN / SSH tunnel or use Waffles.FM RSS feeds directly on your Feral box. See this guide for a possible workaround.

Pidgin Install Spell-checking support manually

Versions 2.7.0 and newer use the dictionaries available from the openoffice extension download site. You need to download the appropriate language extension file(s) (files are openoffice extensions *.oxt, which are just zip files that contain additional data). Once you have downloaded a dictionary extension file, you can rename it so it has a .zip extension and then extract the *.dicand *.aff files in it to <Pidgin Installation Directory>spellcheckshareenchantmyspell (create the directories if they don’t exist already).
If Pidgin is running, it will need to be restarted for new dictionaries to be recognized.
Versions older than 2.7.0 use Aspell; you can download both the Aspell core and a dictionary from the win32 Aspell website.

Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Using Google Earth to zone your farm is a great planning tool.

Google Earth is a wonderful tool for planning your farm permaculture zones.  Its simple to use, yet powerful interface, can be mastered in a few steps and provide you with a map you can print or share online.

To start ….

Permaculture zones (0-5) are a great way to divide your farm up into “use” zones.    If you are not familiar with the zones, you can find my take on them here.
Google Earth is a free mapping tool that you can download for your computer or mobile device from here.

Using Google Earth to zone your farm – the steps!

Step 1. Finding your farm
Open Google Earth.  In the search box in the upper left hand corner, type in the address of your farm….then click search and watch it zoom in!  Google Earth will place a red pin and display the address of your search on the image.  You can zoom in and out and change the orientation using the zoom bar tools on the right hand side of the image.   To remove the red pin (which I find annoying) and address you just click the blue X under the search results box on the left hand side.  For now, zoom to a level so you can see the entire outline of your farm in the image.
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Search your farm address
Step 2. Adding the farm boundaries.
Google Earth has a tool bar that sits at the very top of the image.  You can hover over each of the tools and it will tell you what they are.  Find the Add a polygon tool and click on it.  A box appears in which you describe what feature you are adding.  In this case type ‘Farm Boundaries” in where it says Name (you may be over typing the words ‘untitled polygon’).  Click the box called Style,Color.  This is where you can change the color of your lines.  If you click the color box it will bring up a pallet that allows you to select the line color.  You can also change the line thickness etc.  You can come back and make changes later – so don’t worry if you don’t get it right at first.  I like to use yellow as my boundary lines as it shows up well against the image for my area.  In other drier and sandy areas, red is a better selection.   Change the Area box so it says just ‘Outlined”.
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Setting the polygon name, color and outline
When you are ready to draw the farm boundary lines don’t click ok on the box!   Drag this box away from your farm image….just to the side so you can see the entire outline of your farm.   Click on any corner of your farm boundary on the image.  A small blue box will mark where you have clicked.   Move to the next corner of your farm and click.  A line will now appear between those two points.  Click the next corner and so on until your boundaries are complete.
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Boundaries now complete. I used yellow and changed the line thickness to 2.
When you are finished, you can change the color and thickness of the lines.  When you are happy with your boundaries, then click OK on the box in the bottom right corner.
The boundaries you just added is a data layer that is now added to your image and you can see it in the Places box on the left hand side navigation.  You can turn it on and off by clicking the little box next to its name.  If you right click on the name you have some more options.   Get Info brings back the box so you can change the name, color etc.  If you want to do it again, you can delete the old one here too.
Step 3. Adding a zone.
To add a ‘zone’ is almost the same as adding the boundaries.  The difference is you want a shape rather than a series of lines.  It is still a polygon (so we use the same tool), but we set it up to be filled with a color.
So select the Add a polygon tool again.  This time change the name to the zone you are adding like “Zone 5″.  You could also use your own zone names or descriptions.  Select theStyle/Color button and change the color of the lines AND the color of the area.  I use a different color for each area.  Make sure the Area option is set for “Filled+Outlined” and set the Opacity to 50%.  That will allow the zone to have a color, but you can still see through it and see features on the image underneath.
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Zone 4 (purple) and Zone O (orange) on my farm image.
Just like before, drag the box to the side then outline the shape of the zone you want to add.  If you have a zone that is spilt  – that is two or more areas that are separate but you want them in the same zone, you can set treat them as separate and just label them Zone 1 (A) and Zone 1 (B) etc and use the same colors and fills.
You will end up with a list of zones for your farm on the left-hand side navigation under the Places category – like this:
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Zones listed under Places

Using Google Earth to zone your farm – the final product.

Your final farm plan using the zones with Google Earth may look like this:
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

Final farm zone map
You can keep this in your Google Earth program and can turn on and off the zones just by clicking on the little ticks next to the Zones.
Using Google Earth to zone your farm

A few zones turned off!
Once you are happy with your map, you can print it off, email it of save it as an image using the tools at the top of the image.
The super thing about this tool is that you can add more information as you go.  You can add detailed descriptions in the Zone boxes as well as small images that you have uploaded to the web.    You can even create an interactive tour video of your farm….but now we are talking fun rather than planning :)
I hope this has been a useful tutorial for using Google Earth to zone your farm using permaculture zones.

OpenVPN GUI Installation And Usage Guide (Windows)

A VPN makes browsing the internet and web tasks completely anonymous so your IP address is not visible by anyone and all of your traffic is encrypted.
The software does not come built in to any operating system but it but can be installed very easily on all popular operating systems including Windows, Mac, etc.
The protocol is very fast and stable, when connection problems appear it is very unlikely to drop connection keeping your privacy and security. There are currently no known vulnerabilities which ensures your data is safe and protected from anyone snooping.
This guide is based on setting up OpenVPN GUI on a Windows PC, the first step is to install OpenVPN GUI this is the only version which will connect to our servers because we are not running an OpenVPN access server.
The latest version of OpenVPN GUI can be downloaded here.
Once this program is installed you can proceed with the setup.
In your seedbox download folder there will be a folder named OpenVPN like displayed in the image below. If this folder is not present in your download folder please contact support.
OpenVPN folder in your seedbox download folder.
If you open the OpenVPN folder in the filemanager there will be an OVPN file inside, like displayed in the image below.
OVPN file in the OpenVPN folder.
You need to download this file into the OpenVPN config folder on your local computer, the OVPN file will need to be place in the following location “C:Program FilesOpenVPNconfig”
The OVPN file contains all of the connection settings so once this file is placed in to the OpenVPN config folder you can connect to the OpenVPN server.
Start OpenVPN GUI and navigate to the icon in the bottom bar of your Windows screen and you will need to right click and choose the connect option.
Some customers have mentioned experiencing this error “error creating HKLMSOFTWAREOpenVPN-GUI key”
There is a bug in the OpenVPN GUI installer, OpenVPN GUI needs to be run with full administrator privileges, right-click and select “Run as Administrator”

Upside-Down-Ternet: Raspberry Pi Edition

I did a post on this a few years ago, here is an update for 2013. This walkthrough is based on the technique found here: http://www.ex-parrot.com/pete/upside-down-ternet.html

First the disclaimer: Do not do this to any sort of important computer or network, because it WILL break things. This is meant as a prank for home use only; such as confusing your brother, sister, kids, wife, etc… Doing this to a network you don’t own is a felony and could result in jail time and fines!

What it does

A small device (Raspberry Pi) powered by either a battery or cell phone charger is connected to your network in front of the intended victim’s computer, which will wreak havoc on your victim’s internet browsing. This method does not require changing any settings on any target computers. 
The instructions assume that the computer you want to prank is using a DHCP assigned IP address. If the computer is using a manually assigned IP address, the only thing that will happen is the internet will be completely cut off – which isn’t very funny. If you want to be really evil, you could put it in front of your internet router, causing all the devices that use your internet to be effected. 

How it works

The Raspberry Pi is configured with with a dnsmasq DHCP server which will assign downstream computers a new IP address and gateway. A squid transparent proxy is installed on the Pi where traffic is redirected using iptables. A redirection script uses mogrify to alter images and then re-hosts the images through the a web server. 

Equipment and Software

* Raspberry Pi Model B with Raspbian installed
* USB Ethernet Adapter
* CAT5 Patch Cable
These instructions assume that the Raspberry Pi is accessible through SSH, and also has access to the internet. Installing and configuring Raspbian is out of the scope of this post. If you need help, here is a great place to start: http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianInstaller

Prepare the Software

For best results, overclock the pi to 800Mhz, and set to memory split to 32 or 16MB. For some reason my raspberry pi wouldn’t boot when configured with 16MB. Also make sure that eth1 is configured with static IP 192.168.254.1.

Dnsmasq

Install with:

 sudo apt-get -y install dnsmasq
Add the following config to /etc/dnsmasq.conf to configure the dhcp server on eth1, which should be the USB ethernet adapter.
 domain-needed
 interface=eth1  
 domain=upside-down-ternet

 dhcp-range=192.168.254.100,192.168.254.200,255.255.255.0,12h

Edit /etc/sysctl.conf to allow the Raspberry Pi to act as a gateway router. Add or uncomment:

 net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

Type /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart and then plug a laptop into the USB ethernet adapter. You should get an IP in the 192.168.254.xxx range. At this point although the gateway should be reachable, there is no NAT configuration so you won’t be able to access the internet.

Squid

Install squid, iptables, and imagemagick:
 sudo apt-get -y install squid3 iptables imagemagick

Edit /etc/squid3/squid.conf and copy the text below. This configures squid to act as a transparent proxy with no caching. It also specifies a redirect script at /etc/squid3/upsidedown.sh.
 cache_mgr dustin
 cachemgr_passwd dustin all
 cache deny all
 redirect_program /etc/squid3/upsidedown.sh
 acl manager proto cache_object
 acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/32 ::1
 acl to_localhost dst 127.0.0.0/8 0.0.0.0/32 ::1
 acl localnet src 192.168.254.0/24 # RFC1918 possible internal network
 acl SSL_ports port 443
 acl Safe_ports port 80  # http
 acl Safe_ports port 21  # ftp
 acl Safe_ports port 443  # https
 acl Safe_ports port 70  # gopher
 acl Safe_ports port 210  # wais
 acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535 # unregistered ports
 acl Safe_ports port 280  # http-mgmt
 acl Safe_ports port 488  # gss-http
 acl Safe_ports port 591  # filemaker
 acl Safe_ports port 777  # multiling http
 acl CONNECT method CONNECT
 http_access allow manager localhost
 http_access deny manager
 http_access deny !Safe_ports
 http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
 http_access allow localnet
 http_access allow localhost
 http_access deny all
 http_port 3128 transparent
  cache_mem 64 MB
 #cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid3 150 16 256
 coredump_dir /var/spool/squid3
 refresh_pattern ^ftp:  1440 20% 10080
 refresh_pattern ^gopher: 1440 0% 1440
 refresh_pattern -i (/cgi-bin/|?) 0 0% 0
 refresh_pattern .  0 20% 4320

Iptables

Create a file iptables.sh and copy the text below:
#nat
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
#squid transparent proxy
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p tcp -m tcp –dport 80 -j DNAT –to-destination 192.168.254.1:3128
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp –dport 80 -j REDIRECT –to-ports 3128

Hit ctrl-o to save the file, then ctrl-x to exit. Now the file needs to be made executable and copied to an appropriate location.

chmod +x iptables.sh
sudo cp iptables.sh /etc/init.d/

Apply the configuration at boot:

sudo update-rc.d iptables.sh start 99

Upside Down Redirection Script

First make sure Apache and perl are installed:
 sudo apt-get install apache2 perl
Create a directory for the modified images and assign permissions:
 sudo mkdir /var/www/images
 sudo chmod 777 /var/www/images
Create the redirection script:
 sudo nano /etc/squid3/upsidedown.pl
Paste this code:
#!/usr/bin/perl
$|=1;
$count = 0;
$pid = $$;
while (<>) {
        chomp $_;
        if ($_ =~ /(.*.jpg)/i) {
                $url = $1;
                system(“/usr/bin/wget”, “-q”, “-O”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.jpg”, “$url”);
                system(“/usr/bin/mogrify”, “-flip”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.jpg”);
                print “http://127.0.0.1/images/$pid-$count.jpgn”;
        }
        elsif ($_ =~ /(.*.gif)/i) {
                $url = $1;
                system(“/usr/bin/wget”, “-q”, “-O”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.gif”, “$url”);
                system(“/usr/bin/mogrify”, “-flip”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.gif”);
                print “http://127.0.0.1/images/$pid-$count.gifn”;

        }
        elsif ($_ =~ /(.*.png)/i) {
                $url = $1;
                system(“/usr/bin/wget”, “-q”, “-O”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.png”, “$url”);
                system(“/usr/bin/mogrify”, “-flip”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.png”);
                print “http://127.0.0.1/images/$pid-$count.pngn”;

        }
        elsif ($_ =~ /(.*.jpeg)/i) {
                $url = $1;
                system(“/usr/bin/wget”, “-q”, “-O”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.jpeg”, “$url”);
                system(“/usr/bin/mogrify”, “-flip”,”/var/www/images/$pid-$count.jpeg”);
                print “http://127.0.0.1/images/$pid-$count.jpegn”;
        }
        else {
                print “$_n”;;
        }
        $count++;
}

Press ctrl-o to save, then ctrl-x to exit. Make the script executable:
 sudo chmod +x /etc/squid3/upsidedown.pl

Reboot the raspberry pi and make sure everything starts up automatically. Most images should now be shown upside down!

Nintendo DS ROM Patching Tutorial with xDelta

1. You will need a program called xDelta_GUI or other programs that can apply a patch.


For xDelta_GUI, I got it from this thread;

http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144271

(Download link is in the second post by psycoblaster)


Or download it here;

http://www.mediafire.com/file/ylwrdm4gmjz/psycoblaster_xDelta_GUI.zip


Note:

– If the link there doesn’t work, please let me know.  I can upload the program somewhere else.

– It’s not necessary to use this program if you already have a program that can apply patch. But this tutorial will be based on xDelta_GUI. (I use Windows XP. Not sure if it works with different OS though.)


2. The program in the above link is in .zip format, so unzip it first. (Use winZip, winRAR, or 7Zip.)


3. In xDelta_GUI folder, double click xDelta_GUI.exe. The program should start and look like this.


4. Click “Select Patch” button and select the .patch file. (I plan to name the patch file like: Tokimemo1Test-20100115.patch where 20100115 will be changed according to the release date.)


5. Click “Select ROM” and browse to your clean Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side First Love Plus ROM. (The clean rom should be 256 MB.)

Note: The ROM must have file extension “.nds”. If you download it as a .rar or .zip, etc. You will have to properly extract the file (with Winzip, Winrar, 7z, etc. program.) first.


6. Click “Apply patch” button and wait for a while. (It might take a few minutes, depending on your computer’s speed.) This program will make a new copy of patched ROM with “_patched” at the end of the file name. The file size of the patched one will change too.

(Note: The file size can be slightly different from what is shown in the picture.)


Note: In case “Apply patch” doesn’t work, you can try moving your .patch file and your game ROM to the same folder as your XDeltaGui and repeat steps 4-6.


Note: (Thanks to Kona) About xdelta_GUI. Apparently it wouldn’t patch the file if there’s anything foreign inside the folder which has both the patch and .nds (plus the xdelta programs). Foreign as in the folder having the picture of the game.


7. The one with “_patched” will be the one with English translation. (Your original clean ROM will remain the same.)

Note: The file with “_patched” should be around 190 MB to 210 MB. If you got 0 kb, you probably did something wrong.


8. A tip from GBATemp user, Glaix, in case all the above method doesn’t work.


“I found out the only way I could patch it was with xdelta GUI and the components in thumb drive and patching it like that on my computer. I couldn’t patch it alone on my PC, but I could on my DS and on a thumb drive. If that helps anyone.”

Super Mario Fusion V0.53

After almost two years of hard work, version 0.5 of Mushroom Kingdom Fusion is finally available for download.

IMPORTANT: There is currently one bug in the game that may happen if you’re using a 64-bit operating system. This may cause a few issues such as missing backgrounds or terrain in a couple levels, or, in rare occasions, crashing. We are currently working towards finding a solution to this problem. Until then, read the FAQ for possible solutions should you encounter this issue.

UPDATE: V0.53 is now available for download. V0.53 fixes a number of bugs and balance issues found in the v0.5 release. Unfortunately this does not fix the issues with 64-bit systems; we’re still looking into those.

HOW TO INSTALL:

Step 1: Read the FAQ, located here:

http://fusionfangaming.spriters-resource.com/index.php?topic=8.0

Don’t try to set up the game without reading this first. My bear is a cosmic horror, it can see through time and space and if it sees you not reading the FAQ, it will find you.



Step 2: Download this file and extract its contents into a new folder in your computer. Do NOT try to run the game without extracting the files first. 

http://www.dropbox.com/s/4o400e2tyymh15x/MKFMasterv053.zip
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ck2tna80qkjo0fo (Mirror, seems to cause anti-virus false positives)


Step 3: Download these two files which contain the music:

Just Color Picker

Free portable color picker and color editor for web designers and digital artists.
Just Color Picker main window, compact mode Graphic designers, digital artists and web-designers tend to look at things differently. They see the arrangement and color scheme of things that mere mortals would just take for granted. Anything can be a piece of art or an inspiration, but it takes a discerning eye to really see it sometimes. While taking part in any computer routine, designers may see colors and color combinations that they would like to use in their projects. With Just Color Picker, identifying the colors, saving, editing and combining them into beautiful color combinations is a quick and simple job.
One of the main advantages of Just Color Picker is that it was created by a person who uses it on an everyday basis. It is a software for designers and digital artists created by a designer and digital artist.

Both zip and exe downloadable files are portable and identical. The zipped alternative is offered purely for the convenience of those who, for any reason, can’t download exe files.

How to Outline Text in GIMP

http://www.gimpology.com/

Step 1 Open up the GIMP if it’s already not open and create a new file. The defaults are ok for the purposes of this tutorial.
Step 2 Now using the  text tool (Shortcut: T), add some text to your canvas. I didn’t make the color of the text have too much contrast with the color of the background. We’ll make the text stand out by giving it a dark outline.
Step 3 While the  text tool is still selected, select the text you just created. Next, go into tool options and click “Create Path from Text”:
Step 4 Now create a transparent layer under your text layer. I called it “Outline”:
Step 5 Then go to Select > From Path (Shortcut: Shift+V):
Step 6 Next, go to Select > Grow and select the width of your outline. I chose 5px. After you have grown the selection, fill it with the bucket tool (Shortcut: Shift+B). Then press Ctrl+Shift+A to Select None and there you have it: outlined text!
