Conversely, I  use Pro 14 all the time, no problems with it at all but I never do final renders with it, using it only for editing and rendering to lossless, (MagicYUV or Lagarith).

Vegas MSP 13 & 14 (Pro and MSP) were unstable when I first installed, (failing to start, sometimes crashing), that was fixed by removing all 3rd party installed codecs and then only installing the two above, (anything else wasn't required, MPC-BE has it's own and they're not necessary for any encoding I do).

Think I'll wait til next year when they should have Vegas 16 in a bundle ... really want to play with the Motion Tracking :)

And... being serious, should I continue here or start over on the coding snacks thread?

One of our illustrious moderators can move this thread over ... save some typing  ;)

Just looked up the Maidenhead system, another similar system is What 3 Words (W3W), (as in reducing location to a referenced square).

You're wanting to take GPS data and broadcast it via UDP?

Can you access the NMEA data output by the GPS?

If so you can probably use the code from gpsfeed+ to take the raw NMEA input and output it as UDP packets, (among other formats).

One drawback is that the tiles I added makes the PC heavy, but I never move it anyway.

You can go to an automotive shop and buy sheets of under-bonnet, self-adhesive sound dampening foam, it's about 10mm thick.

Nah, just thought those that were interested in the Docker on Windows ebook might be interested in today's offering.

Perhaps Sound Volume View ?

It allows you to Save/Load profiles.

1) Set all the volumes using the Windows Sound control panel.
2) Run Sound Volume View and save the current profile.
3) Do 1 and 2 as necessary for more profiles.
4) Create shortcut icons as follows, (rename the shortcuts to NetFlix, Youtube, etc):

Probably doesn't help that big sites like ScienceAlert were also selling Windscribe access, so their service is faaaaar more known about than it really should be lol

More to do with how often they change exit IPs because it happens to all VPN/SmartDNS providers, some are just more proactive in swapping/changing IPs.

It's why I use cheap VPS's, a couple of users from a single IP compared to (many) thousands over a proportionally smaller number of IP addresses.

RE the AmazFit BIP, I use my Pebble to bluetooth control my Android phone's music apps when I teach Argentine tango. Does the AmazFit BIP have that ability?

Don't know about the "official" MiFit app but Notify & Fitness for AmazFit lets you set the unlock button to control various things.



The touch screen on the BIP is really only to move through the firmware apps - it is not a "SmartWatch" in that it runs an OS that you can load whatever apps you like on it, it's a fitness tracker with extra functions.
As such the only control that 3rd party programmers can really access is the screen unlock button, hence the 1, 2, or 3 pushes selection above.

You'd be better off sticking with your current method or just buying a cheap Bluetooth remote for music control.

does anyone know of a replacement for "Download Them All" in FF?

Download Portable Firefox ESR 52.9.0 and continue to use DownTheMall ?

This is exactly what I currently use when I need to use DTA because there are no replacements for DTA on the current version of any browser.

This has been normal for me ever since ... well ... a very long time, across different file managers, eg. Explorer, DOpus, etc.

Normally I'd have to do a Properties on the relevant file and then refresh the display to get the current size.

Oddly enough it seems to be random sometimes, eg. writing an MP4 video file will:
  • sometimes show a steady increase,
  • sometimes just sit at 0 until it's closed,
  • or sometimes show a steady increase but only after forcing the system to interrogate the file, (eg. Properties).

A F5 refresh alone doesn't seem to initiate a return to increasing file size.

Maybe it depends on the way the file is being written and/or the filesystem of the destination?
eg. One long continuously open write as opposed to the file being closed between successive appends.

I just ignore it now until I see the process is finished.

Using a commercial VPN service to access Netflix, Hulu, etc is always going to be a game of cat and mouse, the sheer volume of traffic coming from a few IPs is always going to raise a red flag.

Try sending support a message so they can see about getting it sorted.

Verbatim from Windscribe:

Next best thing since FREE

We hope you haven't spent all your hard earned cash on various "deals" this past week. If you have, close this email, we got nothing to talk about. For all the rest of you savvy shoppers, read on.

What we're gonna hawk to you next isn't a "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday" deal (who comes up with these names anyway?), this is a new permanent offer that is available to everyone going forward, but that doesn't make it less exciting.

Windscribe is happy to announce the launch of "Build a Plan", which allows you to pick the locations you want access to, and pay as little as $1/month. Here is a simple chart that will help you understand this groundbreaking concept:

    1 Pro Location - $1/month
    2 Pro Locations - $2/month
    3 Pro Locations - $3/month

REVOLUTIONARY! But wait, there is more! Each location you purchase will add an extra 10GB of data to your monthly allowance. If you want unlimited data, that will cost you another cool dollar.

Are you ready to make it rain like you're in a Vegas Strip Club? Just click the link below.

Build a Plan

Random Fact
"'Typewriter' is the longest word that can be made using the keys on only one row of the keyboard."

- Windscribe Team

So, in theory, if all you are interested in is Netflix US/UK then for a $1/month you can just have access to either the Windflix US or UK exit node plus 20GB, (10GB for signup + 10GB extra), or possibly 70GB if you've previously taken advantage of their extra 50GB freebie in the past.

Do you get interruptions or asking for password when Ymail messes up with updates?

Nope, I prefer to receive my email with close to 100% success rate, so I don't use Yahoo.

Living Room / Re: Whatsapp functionality from PC
« on: November 26, 2018, 04:13 PM »
Doesn't the other end also have to have WhatsApp?

ie. WhatsApp can't send real SMS, it can only send messages to other WhatsApp users, (same as Viber which I use).

As for whether you're able to see whether the other end has received/read an SMS, that's a function of your mobile provider and your SMS app.

AFAIK, there's no app that can send a real SMS and also indicate whether a recipient has read it _unless_ both sender and recipient have read receipts enabled.

Signal can send/receive SMS but it still needs read receipts to be enabled to indicate when one is read.

An alternative:

I have here an Asus A88 deluxe Pro board that is now close to 3 years old. Wasn't cheap to purchase and the Pro in it's name doesn't indicate a cheap board either. The available hardware features on the board do not indicate it is a cheap board.  Yet that 2TByte stupidity is there.

That is going beyond strange, I have an AsRock 970 Extreme4 which is 6+ years old, (Socket AM3+), and it handles >2TB just fine when they're GPT formatted, (two 3TB currently installed).

Raspberry Pi 3B   - $27.49 inc. shipping
Raspberry Pi 3B+ - $34.49 inc. shipping

Both currently cheaper than the RasPi 2B from the same retailer.

Currently transitioning most of the functions performed by a 24/7 Windows 10 MiniITX computer to RasPi based, so far:
RasPi 1B - BitTorrent, Usenet, Aria2 downloaders over always on VPN.
RasPi 2B -, WebDl, get_iplayer (over VPN).
RasPi 3B+ - Still thinking about it, possibly Docker with multiple containers for and a streaming video recorder.
RasPi 3B - On order from Arrow  ;D

All based on DietPi.

If, for example: I drop by your house and brink your favorite cake for you to eat. You will be happy. If I then return with another unit of the same cake, you won't be as happy as the first time, but you'll still like it. If I return again with another unit of the same cake, you'll be angry and tell me to get lost with that ff''ing cake.

I'd buy a freezer during the Black Friday sales and freeze all the extra cake you bring around, stockpiling for the zombie apocalypse.

Living Room / Re: How to find the file of a saved Snapchat video?
« on: November 22, 2018, 06:59 AM »
When you long press a photo in Snapchat you select Save to Camera Roll, video will probably be the same.

Then open Google's Photo app, switch to albums, and there should be one called Snapchat.

From memory, MIUI has no app drawer, everything is tossed onto the home screens ala iPhone. You just have to find the camera app since you can't delete it, being a system app.
If, however, the MIUI developers came to their senses and put apps in an app drawer like normal Android or you're using a launcher that has an app drawer, then look there.

Otherwise, install another camera app and use it instead.
