old versions of VmWare hold up just fine.
Well, compatibility with the newest Windows editions has been troublesome for older VMWare versions, and now especially the latest Win10 CU and FCU updates have proven to have lots of backward compatibility issues, upgrading could be important/useful.

Current configuration is much better than before, but I guess I'm not much into that brown color. I'll get used to it, now that it's no longer hurting my eyes ;)

Developer's Corner / Re: Tomato Custom Router Firmware question

This is merely an experiment to see how steep the learning curve is.
Ah, now it makes more sense.

IMHO, you either need to acquire the needed knowledge yourself, or find a colleague/hire someone that has or can get up to speed with this.

We could put up a poll for that, maybe offering several available options (if any).

It may be caused by my age that I like the 'old' quote style more... :tellme:

I am looking at possibly building custom firmware using Tomato OS for a custom router.
You are asking strange questions: If you know how to build a custom router, why don't you know/have investigated how to build the software for it?
It seems you are working backward here.

Great to be up to date, but why do the quoted messages look so ugly (yes that's a personal preference, but still..., brown accent color?, larger font?, large cursive quoted name/date-time?, enormous upside-down-quote added?)

I just updated the forum ...

You might give the free tier of Trello a try

General Software Discussion / Re: New faster Firefox browser released

Well, I've been 'improving' the minimum tab-width on my updated FF installs, as the default of 76px is quite narrow, so IMHO quite a silly default value (read: not really backward compatible).
And I've been a bit disappointed that even popular add-ons like NoScript don't have their updates available yet, while the release-date of this breaking FF version has been announced many moons ago. But that may just be me, working in the software industry for 30+ years. Planning has been flawed/poor for many developers (including myself ;D)

Just to clarify, the source file is regularly updated by someone else on a different machine. The dashboard setup, with a query to the source file, is to avoid "Locked for editing by..." messages.
If there's a more painless way to do this, I'm all ears! My know-how is quite limited in regards to database/HTML, but I'm pretty computer-proficient in general and a fast learner.  :D

I guess we'll need to have a little more insight into the type of information, and where it originates, stored in the Excel sheet, to help you further. (With a +1 to shades' reply :))

Get a larger ssd to replace the one already there, assuming you can access/replace the current drive. (newer consumer-laptops won't let you do that though)

Install a (large) SD carrd in the slot (most laptops have such a slot).

Type it in another app using the standard keyboardlayout, like whatsapp, select and copy the number, then paste it where you need it.

I would expect that your provider only allows local numbers, not international notation with a + in front. Many countries use the 0 instead of +<countrycode>, I'm not sure what your country/provider expects.

The scrolling capture feature of Screenshot Captor should get you what you want to achieve, but it will produce 1 very long image file.

Combining the commandline version of Screenshot Capture (minicap) with my WinSendKeys could produce you a screenshot per page, it'll require some experimenting, but you'll get there :up:

I think one the image processing tools by our member vlastimil can help you get your workflow/batch process right: http://www.rw-designer.com/software
For uploading there are many available, usually dependent on the service you want to use, I didn't research that.

Are there drawbacks/dangers that I am not considering?
The way I've replaced servers was in 2 similar ways:
1) Build the new server on a different url, copying/converting the data as much as possible, then stop the original server(service), copy/convert the last differences, and bring up the new server on the original url. Reverting is as easy as stopping the new server and re-enabling the old.
2) Build the new server off-line on the same version of the software, then stop the original server, copy all data to the new server, start the new server and get it running, stop it when all is fine, then upgrade to the latest version of software, bring the new server it back on-line (mostly to major-upgrade the OS and application 'big bang'). reverting is again a stop and restart-the-old action.
Both require DNS changes, but setting the ttl to 5 minutes for a couple of hours before starting the procedures makes that a no-brainer.

These methods are closely similar, and the choice depends mostly on the application and OS involved (Even Linux 'upgrades' are sometimes done better by a re-install), and it will also test your installation and maintenance -documentation and -procedures (it was usually a 3-man operation when we did that, and everyone is/should be replaceable..., hence testing the docs and procs ;))

Ah, another potential NANY participant :) Great!

I see you got it while I was typing this message, but for other new readers:

After you login to the forum and then re-opening the Keys page, you should see your license key displayed (a block/blurb of seemingly random characters). Then follow the steps below the license key to get it into any Mouser app for the application registration to be completed.

General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 10 Announced
« on: October 22, 2017, 04:39 AM »
Well, very nice how the automatic update to Win10 FCU went this time (no recovery needed, au contraire to previous large Win10 updates :tellme:), downloaded and installed in a little over an hour or so. And all is mostly working fine after the update.

Just 1 major glitch though: My installed, and fully up to date, Avast AV (free) was completely uninstalled, without any notice whatsoever :o :down:. Reinstalled it, of course had to re-configure disabling some silly/undesirable defaults, and all is fine again, but as previously stated, it would have been quite helpful if the Windows Update tool had reported that the original AV was removed in the process, and why. But it didn't >:(

Thanks but no thanks, Microsoft. >:(

I'd clear out the cache on the phones/tablets and see if the problem persists.

Developer's Corner / Re: MySQL Syntax Question
« on: October 18, 2017, 10:32 AM »
I'd say its just lazy/stupid programming, assuming (something like "database design"...) that 'id' is of numeric type, so LIKE isn't going to work on that anyways, ever. (unless when using this kludge...)

Non-Windows Software / Re: Backup my data
« on: October 06, 2017, 06:36 AM »
Assuming you have another system already (Mac or Windows?) you should network them together (avoid using WiFi on any end, wired is the most reliable and fastest way) and copy/move the files across. It will take time though, that's quite inevitable.

« on: October 05, 2017, 04:03 PM »
Very intriguing essay indeed. I'm, in my new job, trying to map this story to the way software is developed here since around 10 years, and I have found a fair bit of overlap already. Motivating stuff :Thmbsup:

Having a few spare, charged batteries available when I travel is a real plus.  I can go longer without having the phone tethered to a wall socket.  I recently went on a week-long camping trip, and with four spare batteries on hand (that combined still weighed less than an external phone-charging battery) I never needed to worry about trying to find some place to charge my phone overnight.
Well, that's a valid argument indeed, but I'd expect needing that on camping trips only. And I don't do camping trips ;D
