I have hiya on my phone, however it only detects scammers and spammers. As far as I can tell, there is no option to detect spoofing.

You can't put in patterns?  Have you looked at the others?  It hasn't reached critical mass for me yet.
I can, but then I run the risk of blocking legit callers

Living Room / Any way to detect and block spoofed phone numbers?
« on: April 19, 2018, 11:23 AM »
So I've been getting a ton of calls where the area code, and the first 3 digits are the same as my phone number. I know that these are scammers spoofing their number so that it looks similar to my number in the hopes that I will be dumb enough to think that it may be someone that I know. I have a non rooted (and most likely won't ever be able to, thanks samsung) android phone. Is there some app or something that I can install that can detect a spoofed number, and block the call?

I wish I knew about this service sooner. I've always just ignored all the scam emails I get, since they all go straight to my junk mail folder. I've seen a few Nigerian scams in there. The next time I notice a scam email in my junk mail folder, I'm gonna have to try out rescam.

Thats actually not a book, just a bad picture. It was the first picture of the product that I found on the internet. Basically what I am looking for is something about the size of a pack of playing cards, however made out of something stronger than cardboard.

Living Room / Looking for alternative for wallet.
« on: September 10, 2017, 10:20 AM »
Right now I have a regular bifold leather wallet. It gets the job done, but I just ran across this small Magic the Gathering 30 card deck box ( I think its like a promo box or something.) I don't usually carry cash, just cards. Including my driver's license, I have 12 cards (which admittedly, I don't need some of the cards). I like how small the box is, and it holds all 12 of the cards perfectly, with a little extra room left (if I wanted to carry some cash I suppose.) I can fit it comfortably in the same pocket that I keep my phone in.(Note 8 ), and I can also keep it in the pocket that I keep my wifi hotspot in(a bulky, weather resistant at&t one). I can't do that with my actual wallet, because it is too bulky. The only thing I don't like about this box, is it is made of cardboard, and I'm pretty sure that after one night at work (I'm an overnight stocker at a retail store) the box will most likely be a crushed and beat up. So those of you that are still with me here, what I am looking for is something similar to this small box that is either made of plastic, fabric, or leather (doesn't have to be real leather.) It also doesn't have to be an actual wallet with individual slots for each card. I just want something small that I can keep in my front pocket with my hotspot, so I am no longer sitting on a bulky wallet.
this is what the box looks like, however mine is blue, and has different artwork on it.

One of the hardest aspects of coding these days is finding ideas that haven't been implemented already  :mad:

In my opinion, one of the cool things about making your own implementations, is that you can add your own tweaks.  There's also the satisfaction of doing it.  I was just pointing out that there was another one.  The advantage of your app is that you have the source, and can make adjustments, also.  Of course, the advantage of skwire's is you don't have to.  It's a tradeoff. :)
All excellent points. I may go back to mine and tweak it some later, but right now I am enjoying how simple and easy skwire's is.

There's also a very simple tool by skwire to do the same.

...Well that just destroys my app. Kind of wish I looked here first. I should have known one of the awesome DC coders would have written something for this.

yeah, it annoyed me that you couldn't pin steam games to the start menu. I pin all my apps on the start menu in labeled groups to keep my desktop organized.
here is the website with the tutorial in case you need it.

InputBox, Sname, Input Steam Shortcut, Type in the gameid here.
if ErrorLevel
MsgBox, Next, select the icon for the shortcut.
FileSelectFile, IcoLoco
if IcoLoco =
InputBox, Gname, Input Game Name, Type in the game's name here.
if ErrorLevel
FileCreateShortcut, explorer.exe, %Gname%.lnk,,steam://rungameid/%Sname%,,%IcoLoco%
and the source code for my completed script for anyone in the same boat as me.

Never mind, I figured it out.
FileCreateShortcut, explorer.exe, %Gname%.lnk,,steam://rungameid/%Sname%,,%IcoLoco%
I had no clue what the Args option was, so I messed around with it for a bit, and figured out how to get it to work.

I ran across a tutorial to create shortcuts that can be pinned to the windows 10 start menu for steam games without using third party apps.
I wanted to automate this process using AutoHotKey, however when I get to the part where the script actually creates the shortcut, it creates a shortcut with a blank file location.
the file location has to be "%windir%\explorer.exe steam://rungameid/1234"
in my script, I am using
FileCreateShortcut, explorer.exe steam://rungameid/%Sname%, %Gname%.lnk,,,,%IcoLoco%
which creates a shortcut with a blank file location.
Is there any way that I can get this to work? I only know how to code in AHK, so switching to a different program language isn't an option for me, because I rarely make apps, so I don't really want to learn a whole new language just for one simple app.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Living Room / Re: Guide to Living with Introverts
« on: August 23, 2016, 03:27 AM »
I have to agree with the comic, and what mouser added. I am an introvert, and it annoys me to no end when anyone says "you don't talk much." I don't like small talk, however, if we sit down and play a fun board game, I will be more inclined to strike up a conversation with you. I have also found that if I've gotten to know you better, I'll talk to you more. I talk to my best friend all the time, and we have a blast talking about random nonsense. I also have one co-worker who I enjoy joking around with, and time flies by at work with her.

Yeah, I read the part where it can run as a server, and can be viewed from a browser. I'm just not that fond of how it uses java.

Datacrow ?
...Are you a wizard? This sounds like exactly what I am looking for!

My friend and I play Magic the Gathering together. I have a small collection of cards, and would like to create a searchable database of the cards I have. I am looking for either something I can run off my website (Most likely using php and mysql), or some type of program that I can run on my windows vps, that I can browse via my android phone/tablet using either the browser, or a dedicated app. I'd like to have a spot to enter various details about the card. (the more the better, eg. Name, Set, mana cost, card text, number I have, etc.) I've seen various websites that already do this, but I have a windows vps that I am not using for a whole lot, and want to host my own collection, instead of having to rely on some other site.

Non-Windows Software / Re: Remix OS for PC Beta Launch

Note to self, never use the supplied usb installation creator tool that they provided ever again. It bricked my flash drive.
Give SD Card Formatter a try, that may work.
I actually tried that first. I then tried a multitude of different things, until I finally ran across the clean all command in diskpart, which took forever, but somehow actually worked.

I still wanted to give the OS a try though, so I burnt it to a dvd-rw disc, and when it booted up on my old laptop, it just sat at the logo screen, and never actually loaded.

I just installed it, and for me, it isn't usable. I have three monitors, and like to drag a tab from one monitor to the next. In Chrome, FF, and IE, I could have multiple tabs open in one browser window, and then drag one of those tabs to another monitor, and it would just move over there. with Vivaldi, the only way I have found that I can drag a tab to one of my other monitors, is by right clicking on it, and selecting move to new windows. However, when I do that, it reloads the tab. This isn't not good when I am watching a Youtube video, and want to move it to a different monitor so that I can have the video play in the background and focus on something else, because it will just restart the video.

I recently switched back to the Google Messenger app on my phone (Nexus 6p), and have a custom notification for new messages set in the app. However, any time I get a new sms/mms, first the system wide default notification sound plays(which is different from what I have set in Messenger), and then the custom notification sound I have set in the app plays. Any idea why this is happening, and how to go about fixing it?

Edit: thanks for all the help, but I just rebooted my phone, and now everything is working perfectly again.

Non-Windows Software / Re: Idea for decluttered android twitter app
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:08 PM »
The only (not really a) problem with Twidere I ran across was the limit on the number of reply Tweets it displayed but that was a function of Twitter's anally-restrictive API...

Another alternative is TweetDeck which runs in a browser, it's another interface to Twitter, (by Twitter), that allows for a bit more customising.
Yeah, I noticed that Twidere feels a lot more restricted than the last app I was using(can't remember the name, wasn't the official one though)
I used to use the Tweetdeck android app way back when they were their own entity. Then Twitter had to buy them out, and shutdown the app because it was better than their own app, which they didn't like.

Have you tried Twidere ?

It's also a lot less intrusive permission-wise.
I have not, but I'll check it out

edit: Twidere comes pretty close to what I am looking for, but the tabs show the icon for the type of tab it is, but not the tab label. I don't know if I am missing something, but I don't really get the point of being able to label your tabs if the labels don't even show up.

edit 2: Nvm, I ran across the "scrapyard" settings page, and figured out how to show the label instead of the icon.

I have a twitter account, buy hardly use it, because every time I open the app on my phone, I just see a giant list of 150+ new tweets. I just finished organizing all the people I follow in to lists, however if one person tweets like there is no tomorrow, then I'll get bombarded with their tweets, and miss the other people in that list.

What I am looking for is either an app that already does what I am about to describe, or someone willing to code this app, as I only know a little AHK, and nothing else.

I want an app that will show me all the lists in my account, and then I can tap one, and it would open it like you would open a folder in windows explorer. It would then show a grid (or list if the user prefers) of all the people in that list with an unread count next to them. You would then tap on the person who's tweets you would like to look at, and it would show a timeline of just their tweets (and maybe retweets (user choice maybe?))

I don't know if this is even possible, given how restricted twitter's api rate limits are.

I'm assuming he means pcpartpicker too. I just recently ran across the site, and I really like it so far.

Living Room / Looking to upgrade gaming pc, suggestions?
« on: January 21, 2016, 05:15 PM »
My current gaming pc is getting kind of old, and I am looking to upgrade it. I can't afford anything super high end, so I will be reusing some of my current parts. For example, I will be reusing my gtx 770.


I have attached a gpu-z screenshot of my gpu.
Here is the parts I have picked out. (I didn't actually pick them out. I found someone else's build, and removed everything I didn't need.)
Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (because the cpu doesn't come with a stock cooler, and I don't plan to overclock.)
Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
Thermaltake Chaser A31 ATX Mid Tower Case

I have three 1080p monitors, and have no desire to upgrade to 4k monitors any time soon.
I currently have a core i5-2310 2.90GHz with 8GB of ram.

So my question is, will the parts I have selected give me good gaming performance with my gtx 770?
I play games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, though I intend to buy newer games as they come out. (just don't know of any right now.)

Would my gtx 770 be a bottleneck to the i7-6700K? (Or vice versa?) Or would they play nice together?
