How is Iridium?  So many choices... all based on Chromium.

DC Gamer Club / Update Origin Now
« on: April 18, 2019, 02:53 PM »
If you have Origin (EA's launcher/store) installed, update it now.   As in quit reading this and go update it.

Then you can read the long story here:


But strangely, a recent bug with its Origin game client might be one of the company’s most serious issues yet.

That’s because due to a security flaw in the Windows version of Origin, it was possible for hackers to essentially run or install any application on a user’s computer through something as innocuous as a hyperlink.

Discovered by Daley Bee and Dominik Penner of Underdog Security (via TechCrunch), the source of the flaw came from EA’s use of a custom URL protocol that allowed gamers to access a game’s web store from a browser instead of using the Origin client. Unfortunately, because those “origin://” links could also be tricked into launching malicious software, it essentially gave hackers free rein to install almost any program onto an end user’s machine.

According to Bee, by combining a malicious code with a cross-site scripting exploit, malware could be sent and automatically installed on vulnerable systems simply by clicking a link. And to prove the existence of the flaw, the team at Underdog security even created a demo exploit that opened up the Windows Calculator app instead of a link in Origin that appeared to be an EA sales offer.

And it's down again for me.

It never works when I need it.  >:(

You could host your own instance...

I use the commercial app CompareIt!/SynchronizeIt! and love it.

That said, are the two folders on the same drive or different drives?  Are the drives formatted the same if they are different?

Nice homage to your Pops.   :Thmbsup:

Again, check StackOverflow with your questions.  You'll have a larger variety of coders and people to help you.  If someone knows here, they'd be happy to help you, but we have a smaller pool and depending on timeframe they might not be able to answer.

Hmmm... that's strange.  It should have formatted it.  Let me take a look.  Still slammed at work (they terminated my boss with no warning or reason, so I'm picking up the pieces O_O).  But I'll try to get to this in the next few days.

I'd say try it now with your massive file and see if it works to view it.  That might give an indication if it would be able to edit it.

It does not have an edit option, though I can look at adding that.  I'm not sure about being able to handle very large files - it uses Newtonsoft JSON.NET to manipulate the JSON, and is supposed to be highly performant, and I know that I've manipulated some very large datasets with it, but not sure how large.

Google Chrome has built-in ad blocking? :huh:

Who knew, right?  I'm not sure if there was some sort of Chrome hooks in there for that or something.

Microsoft just released preview versions of its Chromium-powered Edge browser today. If you’ve downloaded it to test it, you’ve probably noticed it’s very stable and performs surprisingly well. It even performs better than Google’s own Chrome browser on Windows 10, despite being built on the same Chromium open-source project. While it’s early days for Microsoft’s new Edge, the company has revealed all of the Google services it has replaced or removed from its new Chromium-powered browser to optimize performance.

Microsoft has removed or replaced more than 50 of Google’s services that come as part of Chromium, including things like ad blocking, Google Now, Google Cloud Messaging, and Chrome OS-related services.

I'm actually looking forward to trying it out.  I haven't been able to get past the middle-click problem in Brave, and Vivaldi seems to be slower than it used to be, so I'm back to Chrome.

Yeah. The site was working for me yesterday. But today I actually tried to use it and it failed. :(

Actually, I just tried again and it seems to be working for me now. :Thmbsup:

When it is working, Malwarebytes prevents me from going to it with a Trojan warning.

That sounded really cool, but I am not able to get to, it seems to be down :-(

I noticed that yesterday and went right to the github.  That address worked.

The best tool is a Premium membership...  :(

I have a membership, and I can say that the best tool isn't a premium membership.  I download videos even though I have a membership because of this stipulation:

Download videos and music on your mobile devices to watch and listen offline for up to 30 days without being connected to the internet. For more details on how to download videos and music, please see this Help Center article.

I don't download normal music that way- but unique things that could disappear and are not available elsewhere?  Yeah, I download those all the time.

I created something like that using Nancy for the company that I work for- it's nice to see an alternate implementation.  I use SyncThing and Synology Cloud Station, but it's nice to have a simple service where you can just perform a put then a get to retrieve it sometimes- especially hitting it using cUrl or something similar.

Specifically, in case he was being too obtuse, this in the code.

Code: PHP [Select]
  1. Prerequisites:
  2.   * PHP
  3.   * GeoIP as described here:

Though I wouldn't disagree that a bit of obtuseness was perhaps warranted in this case.

I used to use MachForm for this.  The pricing was pretty straightforward, and having the code was a plus.  It's strictly a form submission type of deal though.  The form builder is pretty straightforward, and easy to use.

So are you saying that you want a contextual keymap based on the application that is foregrounded?

No, I don't think so.  He wants to automate, with a hotkey, the "right-click > choose some context menu action" one does after, typically, selecting files.

@MourningStar: Because right-click shell stuff like this is quite tricky to automate, you might want to look at Cautomaton, released by Worstje, one of the coders here on DC.

Cautomaton DC forum page here: http://www.donationc....msg223716#msg223716

Worstje's site here: http://www.dcmembers...whitehat/cautomaton/

Ah Ok.  Thanks for the clarification.  I was asking because I know that the Logitech is on a per-application basis (one of the reasons that I use it) and I know that particular screen that he capped changes based on the application that's foregrounded (because I use the same thing on my g13 to change the key assignments per application).  But it seems like you have a handle on it so I'll bow out. Onward!  :Thmbsup:

This is probably the most painful bug report I've ever read, describing in glorious technicolor the steps leading to Knight Capital's $465m trading loss due to a software bug that struck late last year, effectively bankrupting the company.

The tale has all the hallmarks of technical debt in a huge, unmaintained, bitrotten codebase (the bug itself due to code that hadn't been used for 8 years), and a really poor, undisciplined devops story.

In the meantime I decided to try out one of the free providers, though I'm a little hesitant to put much data on one of these free providers because I'm not sure what kind of security they use by default. Does anyone know if Nextcloud uses end-to-end encryption by default? I don't want the free provider to have access to my data.

I am not sure, and it was one of the reasons that I haven't checked more deeply into it.  I can upgrade to the version of PHP, but the space requirement is what keeps me from hosting my own.
