One of the newer trends of these sextortion scams is to use hacked/leaked passwords to make them appear more legitimate. Lots of people are falling for it...

A heads up that DC is still broken.Use a browser instead of a semi-broken wannabe OS ball of mud-Tuxman (July 28, 2018, 09:55 AM)
But yeah, I actually think it would have looked nicer if the legs were closer to front and thus more visible.I, on the other hand, find the look pretty great. Having the legs flush with the rest of the structure seems... blocky, I guess. Current placement is good-mouser (July 27, 2018, 04:52 PM)
And I'm still unconvinced as to whether I chose correctly going with this lighter reddish/orangeish stain, instead of my normal dark brown stain, but that ship has sailed.Oh, this is the light color I slammed on IRC? Looks a lot nicer on the finished product!-mouser (July 27, 2018, 04:55 PM)
I'm curious about the placement of the feet. I would expect them to be almost flush with the outside corners, and maybe an extra one or two near the center. Why did you choose to place them the way you did?Better support and weight distribution?-Deozaan (July 27, 2018, 03:27 PM)
Doesn't it help prevent tracking?Not really, no. You have to consider that most people aren't on static global IPs, but will either have dynamic IPs, or even (a very large number) be behind cgnat. The tracking folks obviously want to be able to uniquely identify you even in spite of that, and across devices as well.-Deozaan (July 24, 2018, 02:10 PM)
Left undisturbed, operational HDDs don't usually "suddenly fail", they tend to progressively fail in incremental fashion, all the meanwhile logging their gradual deterioration in their on-board SMART data accumulators. Analysis of HDD failure can be quite enlightening and can enable the user to predict HDD failure, when they avail themselves of SMART monitoring to detect when it is time to migrate from a failing drive, rather than risk blindly waiting till forced to recover from an already-failed drive.That's not the experience I've had as a consumer.-IainB (July 21, 2018, 02:38 PM)
From my experience, it can be really powerful, especially using inline assembler to optimize code- a feature that I've not seen so easily used in many IDEs. I have nostalgia for it- from my first real development opportunity being in Delphi 1I learned programming with Turbo Pascal 6 back in the day, and spent a lot of time with Borland Pascal 7 as well, before moving on. Back then, the Borland IDEs were second to none, the integrated context-sensitive help system was unmatched. And because compilers generally sucked back then, and the machines were slow, the inline assembly feature was pretty good. I moved onto C/C++, but the first couple versions of Delphi were interesting because they made Windows development easy.-wraith808 (July 19, 2018, 03:08 PM)
Why is that bad news? You either get a new license for a new year, or upgrade from what I'm reading your statement.Because it makes the offering unusable?-wraith808 (July 19, 2018, 12:12 PM)
That's a pretty rad undercut she's rocking now!Sorry for the silence. I’m okay. Just not as okay as I’d like to be yet.[ Invalid Attachment ]-Deozaan (July 07, 2018, 01:10 AM)
Could you enlighten me why it is bad to set/unset global environment? That it is bad you mentioned, the "because" is missing. Thanks in advance!Sure thing-KodeZwerg (July 18, 2018, 03:38 PM)
Set wshSystemEnv = wshShell.Environment( "SYSTEM" )Do. Not. Do. This.
I am sorry, this option is gone. While developing/learning MMX it was possible. When i published it here it was possible to get code. Now the Crypt-Algo is already bound to another Application.Why does that change anything?-KodeZwerg (July 17, 2018, 08:18 PM)
I am pretty sure you have code anyway :-)It would be easy enough reverse-engineering it - but it's not that I'm particularly interested in the algorithm. Sharing it would be for your own good, to learn from the discussion you could have with more experienced developers-KodeZwerg (July 17, 2018, 08:18 PM)
I got this "set -ua ..." off the www as a possible answer to my question.Where? Considering "u" isn't a valid argument to set, and "-" being the wrong argument specifier, that just seems like bad advice.
I write VB code and VBscript when necessary.VBScript (probably) requires the hack from your original post, VB should be able to use normal environment passing. Which language do you need the solution for? And if it's VB, is it old-school VB or VB.NET? And which version?
Anyone out there knows how to pass an environment variable from Windows?It's the seventh argument to CreateProcess
This makes me question whether or not I really want to get myself too involved in Microsoft's ecosystem after all.Don't. I have a feeling this is going to get even more ugly.-Deozaan (July 05, 2018, 03:54 PM)
