General Software Discussion / Re: Listary 6

I'll look into it. Even v5 is very advanced. I only use it for the quick folder stuff. So just scratching the surface, I suppose.

Looks promising! Listary is a must have as it is, but this looks like something that might even replace FARR... (don't tell mouser)

Blackbird version 1.0 hotfix 1.0.1 is finally ready:
https://www.getblackbird.net/download/

https://www.facebook.com/getblackbird/

What's your experience with it? I'm considering running it, but unsure whether I might need some of the stuff it deactivates. I realize I can make a backup, so I suppose I might just try, but still interested in hearing if you or anyone else use blackbird

Can I borrow your time machine?

KeePass is minimizing BEFORE CHS sees the new clip... That's a really tricky situation, since CHS thinks another app put the text on the clipboard..
Would it be possible to ignore new clips whenever KeePass is the active window? Or would that be too hackish, after all there might be plenty of reasons to use CHS with KeePass, for new entries, edited entries, etc. I dunno.. not a coder :p

6
I will note that for 99% of cases, this minimize on copy situation will not be relevant, so CHS will be able to ignore apps properly.
I guess that minimizing stuff was a relevant bit of info... To be honest I haven't been too bothered with having to check that option in KeePass, it's not like it makes any practical difference. I can see why you'd want to iron out even small issues like this, though.

Same issue in latest beta (2.43.2).

Steps:
Uncheck "Use 'Clipboard Viewer Ignore' clipboard format (not recommended)" in KeePass.
Screenshot - 23.06.2018 , 09_37_15.png
Doubleclick some entry (KeePass is set to minimize, which activates the next window, in this case Vivaldi).
Screenshot - 23.06.2018 , 09_37_49.png
CHS-window shows content of clipboard.

Unfortunately doesn't seem to work.

Btw, there was a missing / in the link to the executable ;)

I was having the same problem, but changing an option in KeePass fixed it (or worked around it):
I needed to tick the option "Use 'Clipboard Viewer Ignore' clipboard format (not recommended)".

For some reason, if this option is unticked, the password is stored in CHS but listed as the result of another process (seemingly the process that is activated when the KeePass window is minimized).

Official Announcements / Re: New DonationCoder, New Ideas
« on: January 22, 2018, 12:04 PM »
I'd be willing to provide the occasional post or a few posts to a pool for publishing whenever, but couldn't possibly commit to something regular. I'm not sure my posts would be very interesting, however :p

I like the idea of blog posts from multiple users! There are so many interesting and helpful posts in this forum from a number of users, so I'm sure there would be plenty of great blog articles.

Nice find. At $2 I'm sure there a at least a couple of things making it worth it ;)

Getting 4-5 MB/s at the moment.

« on: December 03, 2017, 12:04 PM »
I like RightNote, it just wasn't the ... ahem.. right note for me. Own a license and I used it for a while, but I just prefer how I can write notes anywhere on OneNotes pages and also the syncing abilities with my Android phone and certain notebooks for work purposes. It just works.

OneNote for pretty much everything. For the rest I use a notebook and a pen :Thmbsup:

edit: Scrivener for a few things, but mostly for writing longer articles.

14
you could set rules up so that if you copied something from a specific program a specific rule would get run on the text automatically?
No such feature exists in CHS.
That would actually be a very useful feature... consider it a request ;)

Non-Windows Software / Re: Google Play Store Android updates not new
« on: October 18, 2017, 01:34 PM »
Have you by any chance installed apps manually, as in downloaded the .apk? I've had this happen when I've updated apps by downloading the latest directly from the authors (mainly on xda forums).

Living Room / KRACK - WPA2 Vulnerability Exposed
« on: October 16, 2017, 01:45 PM »
This subject is beyond me, but I was a little surprised to see that there wasn't a thread on this already...

Researchers have disclosed a serious weakness in the WPA2 protocol that allows attackers within range of vulnerable device or access point to intercept passwords, e-mails, and other data presumed to be encrypted, and in some cases, to inject ransomware or other malicious content into a website a client is visiting.

Some more on this:

https://www.krackattacks.com/

In layman's terms, to an end user, what are the potential harm that can be done, according to the wise world of DC'ers?

Edit: To answer this myself, straight from the source:

We discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted.   This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites.

The weaknesses are in the Wi-Fi standard itself, and not in individual products or implementations. Therefore, any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected. To prevent the attack, users must update affected products as soon as security updates become available. Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected. During our initial research, we discovered ourselves that Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys, and others, are all affected by some variant of the attacks. For more information about specific products, consult the database of CERT/CC, or contact your vendor.

The research behind the attack will be presented at the Computer and Communications Security (CCS) conference, and at the Black Hat Europe conference. Our detailed research paper can already be downloaded.

Do you use ATS currently? Impressions? Looks interesting, although I'm unsure if I actually need the extra features compared to Windows Task Scheduler...

Living Room / Re: USB HDD enclosure or what?
« on: October 10, 2017, 11:53 AM »
Worked like a charm! And to my surprise the drive still works. I backed it up and can take a nostalgic look at my 2004 computer. Apparently I had gathered quite the collection of digital mess already...

Thanks again!

Now it's time to dig up a few other lost drives...

Living Room / Re: USB HDD enclosure or what?
« on: October 08, 2017, 01:38 PM »
I took another look at the drive, and it's IDE, so looks like I need a dock with that capability. Sharkoon does seem like the way to go. Now I just hope the drive isn't completely dead... Come to think of it, I've got an old WD MyBook that doesn't start, so I might be able to get the drive out from that as well.

Thanks for the suggestions, I knew I could count on the good old DonationCoder forum!

edit: I ordered the Sharkoon DriveLink Combo USB 3.0 - https://www.sharkoon...m/product/1686/13760 Not as elegant as the dock solutions, but this was cheaper and it's something that'll probably stay in a drawer and be called upon only when needed.

Living Room / USB HDD enclosure or what?
« on: October 08, 2017, 11:12 AM »
Hi. Time to call on the wisdom of DC again... I've got an old hard drive laying around and have never got around to doing anything with it, but figure it's about time. There's most likely nothing of interest on it, except to please my curiousity, if the HDD even works. I only recently picked it out of the computer it came with. But what I'd like some help figuring out, is how to access it? Preferably something cheap, something like a simple USB HDD enclosure that I can put the old HDD in and plug into my laptop. Would love some suggestions for an enclosure or what I'd need to have a chance of seeing what this ancient piece of computing contains (it was made in 2000 if I remember correctly, and I probably used it until about 2005).

Thanks, people!

And again today: http://www.bitsdujou...in=todays-deals-home

I've used Total Commander since it was Windows Commander 3.14 I think, and can't see myself switching fulltime, but thought this was such a good deal that I figured it's another valuable tool to keep in my software arsenal. Impressed, so far!

I'm re-trialling nYNAB and although it's not perfect and I think it's too expensive, I do like it. I appreciate that I can alter my budget in the mobile app and on any PC. I tried Financier - www.financier.io - which is a good alternative, but the (single) developer is open about not wanting to put much work into new features and basically just maintain it. That would be fine with me if it had scheduled transactions and a mobile app, which it doesn't.

I think I'll start paying for the subscription once my trial runs out. Budgeting for the subscription shouldn't be too difficult, after all ;)
