Android Apps / Re: Updating my Android Apps

So when google tells you to jump, you just have to jump.

You can also host the APK yourself, and/or on some site like F-Droid.

That said, the fact of the matter is that most people with an Android device will prefer using the Google Play Store.

Now it's time for people with Windows 10 to worry about update problems, or not. I got through unscathed, anyone had problems?

Why? What's special about this update that would cause problems?

The voice of google god has now informed me that the following text is offensive to them and in violation of the google play store and is not allowed in my app descriptions, for my totally free apps that I make no money from:

Please show your appreciation for this app and support its development by donating at"

Google has to get their 30% cut of the donation. :(

Add Insurgency to your account in the next ~48 hours and keep it forever.

Ah, right. I misunderstood and thought he wanted the photos/images off the Android device onto his PC. Sorry.

What's wrong with Picasa? Did it stop working? As far as I know you can still use it if you can find a download for it.

But assuming Picasa is no longer an option:

Dropbox can automatically sync photos and videos from your Android device to a folder on your PC. No need to even physically connect to two devices together. Then you can move them to a more permanent storage location so as to not use up all of your free Dropbox cloud storage.

You could perhaps combine Dropbox with a TotalCommander macro which will move the files from Dropbox to his image/video library every few days.

a shirk attack

Teenagers, amirite?

I guess that could have been taken multiple ways.  I meant I can't find the installer for x86/x64 devices.  The installers for other processors are on that page.

Mea culpa. Admittedly I didn't click the link, and I only skimmed your quote and didn't catch that it said it was for x86/64 devices. I wasn't aware that any x86/x64 IoT devices existed. I took it for granted that they were all built on ARM architecture. :-[

UPDATE: I found this quote in the docs for IoT:

Windows IoT Core is a version of Windows 10 that is optimized for smaller devices with or without a display that run on both ARM and x86/x64 devices.
(from https://docs.microso...ore/windows-iot-core)

But I can't find the build for it.  Strange!

If you have a Raspberry Pi, their NOOBS (New Out Of the Box Software) package includes an installer option for Windows 10 IoT. Or if you can get VirtualBox to emulate a Pi, you can try NOOBS on that.

Interesting project, ichimitch.

Please document your progress and share the information on how you achieve your results, so others can benefit from your experience. :Thmbsup:

I actually really like the MS Store for free apps that are essentially the same as the "regular" desktop builds of other apps. It installs and uninstalls things cleanly, automatically keeps things updated, etc.

You have to pre-book parking spaces?  :huh:

I really don't remember.

if memory serves me correctly, I created specifically for a parking garage a couple years ago when traveling to Seattle.

Am I the only one curious as to why one would require an email address for a parking garage?  :huh:

I don't remember why. Maybe it was to get my receipt emailed to me? Or maybe I bought a parking space online in advance to make sure there would be room for me? I really don't remember.

I dont know, the first example (OP) doesnt seem so ridiculous to me

It's ridiculous if you know you haven't been viewing any pr0n and you don't even have a webcam to hijack.

I just got another one of these with virtually identical contents. Only this time it was from a different person who said they were from Indonesia, they demanded 750 USD in BTC, and it was sent to a different email address of mine. :huh:

Oh, and the subject was slightly different. It said "definitely read this" instead of "Your secret video here." But it followed a similar format for having a ticket number and the current date.

That looks really nice!

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?

After research from a tech site that got hit, it appears that someone paid about 40 euro's to have a stress test website attack several domains for a day.

You mean "stress test" website. They're really DDOS services calling themselves something innocuous sounding so they can claim to be providing a legitimate service. Kind of like how video game ROM sites claim to just be "backups" and not intended for piracy.

I have two computers running Windows 10.

One of them, from the beginning of time, has always woken up from sleep at the same time every day, ground the hard drive for several minutes, and then gone back to sleep.
The other one has never been woken up from sleep to install updates or whatever, as far as I can tell.

I have no idea what the difference is between the two machines to explain why it would happen on one but not the other.

Please don't think a VPN is going to give you any form of privacy.

A VPN lets you access a remote network securely across an insecure line - this is the only thing it's guaranteed to do. It's the only thing you should be using it for. Stop spreading the damn misconception that it's useful for privacy.

Doesn't it help prevent tracking? Or has that become so invasive these days that it doesn't matter what your IP is, they can still identify you by some unique ID in your browser or OS or something?

So I'm torn on which color to go with.. Thoughts anyone?

I feel like last time you made something you said you should try going for a lighter, more natural color. Have your feelings on the matter changed?

That said, the darker one seems like it might match the floor better.

Thanks! These are some nice looking products. The 30% discount from $50 equates to $35 USD. :Thmbsup:

Did you find cranioscopical's wife's painting?

Of course. That's why I'm still looking for Cody.

Did anyone find my roomate in the one photo yet?

Of course. Center left. But I'm still searching for Cody.

The big take home message I get from Simone Giertz (her work and her recent shared struggle) is: Put yourself out there.

Care to expound on that?
