Run
unlink($filename);

from the calling file after the installer file returns...or try running it on installer file exit (I haven't tested this, but it's worth a shot).

I had an early digital watch that required holding down a button to light the LEDs to see the time.  Try that on a motorcycle with no accelerator lock.

LOL Same problem as checking the time on an LCD watch at night now -(even with cruise control)- It does tend to be a real PITA. smiley

What I want is my $30 nokia in a watch shape, with tethering, and syncing all the data to your 'family' of devices.

Personally, I just want my phone to be a phone ... But the Samsung Gear S rig in this iWatch vs. Samsung review seems to do much of what you're after.

the wax part also!

Um... That's not strictly true. The Xerox Solid Ink printers - which are part of the Phaser series - are something referred to as wax printers due to their supplies looking much like 4 blocks of wax.


Only 'advantage' of wax could be that the material is re-usable, but how to revert an object into threads of the correct constant thickness

I went there too, but was also thinking it may be needed/wanted for some sort of casting operation where an internal mold piece may need to be melted out of a finished product. *Shrug* ...Just trying to get clarification on what we/re after.

As a rule I'd also been sticking with an older version of uTorrent like vlastimil  and 4wd, However...

In the interest of giving the devil his do...I took a peek at Tuxman's Tixati ... And I do believe I just switched. It handles .torrent and .magnet files/transfers (and some other stuff I've never heard of), doesn't require any Java or .NET crap, and has a fairly small portable option. With a simple straight forward UI ... This thing is a keeper.

No, I'll be getting quite interested in finding an unplug app for my phone...even if I have to side load it.

Then at that point you'll be interacting with someone's device that they may (and most likely will be) using for non-nefarious purposes.  How is that even tolerable?


Have you ever heard of the never bring a camera to a bachelor party rule?? ...It's kinda like that.

You seem to be missing some very important hints I've been giving about location location location. Because there is a time and place for everything...and very (very...) bad place(s) for misunderstandings to occur ....Savvy?

Stoic, you're using Win8 and you've got multiple monitors?

8.1 Pro with 2 widescreen monitors, and taskbar buttons showing on the screen where the window is open. There's a clock with a working Context menu on both. Now regardless of which one I click the properties/calendar dialog always shows up over the (main screen) left one...but that's a fairly minor quirk.
11  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: September 11, 2014, 02:49:34 PM
I've also added multi-monitor support on Win8+ As requested by Baegus here: https://github.com/dg9ngf/T-Clock/issues/2

Okay, now that's a neat trick. smiley

The issue gets muddier in public places. But, that would seem to be already covered by harassment or stalking laws.

No it doesn't. You simply need to overlay what is prudent and everything becomes nice and clear. Sure if you are in a coffee shop next to/near a university it is safe to assume that most folk will be equally enamored with whatever piece of camera based tech you wish to be fiddling with. However...

If you are in a dive bar at the edge of town the very last thing you want to be associated with is any kind of recording equipment ... Because some folks take being camera shy to a very (very...) serious level ... And "I didn't know" makes for a rather lousy epitaph.

Now multiply ^that^ times the amount of attention you might end up getting from the fuzz regarding that footage of yours they'd like to see ...(and talk to you about in depth)... and I do believe that the angle at which the concept of less is more becomes rather obvious.

if you're filming me without my knowledge/consent...then you're violating my privacy.
As wraith points out, here in the UK we are constantly surveilled.

Oh well gee wiz...I guess if it's the new normal then it must be just fine then ... Not!

It's one thing for a business to put up cameras - most of which are on either a closed loop, or just have shit for storage. They are static and reasonably avoidable. It is however quite another thing for some individual who arrogantly thinking their entire waking life moment by moment is worth documenting decides to include me in their home movies. Then they end up on some LEO's radar, who want's to "talk to" everyone on dipsticks movie...and I get flushed down the rabbit hole with them.

No... That is not acceptable. And once it gets explained to said errant fool it is going to come down to a simple question of which one of us is about to use what method to turn off that camera ... because the camera is about to get turned off.

And not all people that use glass are using it inappropriately... I'd dare say, most of the ones that I know are not using it in any way that would intrude on anyone else's privacy.

Given the potential for complications if one was to show up in the wrong persons video diaries ... I would be in favor of jamming the feed. Because if you're filming me without my knowledge/consent...then you're violating my privacy.

You're filmed everywhere you go pretty much.  It's not as bad as the UK, but one of the first things the police do is to look for banks, ATMs, and Convenience stores in the region near any crime because of that.  I think it's bad form to actively film someone without their consent, but again, the bulk of the people with Glass that I know don't do that.  And I thought about getting it for development purposes, but it's way too much for what it does.

The local Harley Davidson dealer lets one of the idiot kids behind the parts counter wear the Google glasses while on duty. So far the kids been lucky as I haven't run into him when I was in the right (wrong...) mood. However if those stars do ever line up...it ain't going to be pretty.

Limited series of 31, (March has 31 days), DC mugs.

Numbered, (x of 31), signed, and custom-designed by various graphically orientated people here at DC, (count me out  cheesy ), to be given away as the results of many/one competition(s) - the coveted number 1 being the big prize, (and possibly the biggest mug).

March has 31 days yes, but this is a programing/software form ... So mug number 1 is - or should be - the second one. making for a limited run of (x86) 32.

What type of payload are you trying to find in what kind of image? Are you trying to spot hostile code coming in, or sensitive data going out?

The question is way to general to try and answer properly.

Even money says the "label" is a Trojan. cheesy

Seems like way too much trouble, making a Trojan email, just to infect someone.   huh   Weren't the first viruses sent via email?

Don't most folks have spam/virus filters?  Pretty weak scheme.  I'm disappointed.  Grin

Quite to the contrary, this technique - which is a variant on hacking the user - cleanly circumvents all of the security software on the users machine by peaking their curiosity to the point where they simply just shut it off.

You see the modern operating systems and software have become secure enough that direct attacks are too costly (in time) to perform in bulk. You can't just attach a naughty file and have it guarantee-ably go boom when it hits someone's inbox ... So other methods have to be used. These methods focus on the weakest link in the chain, and the weakest link is the user.

Banks, mortgage companies, tax records, shipments, money transfers ... These are all common hot topic items that are likely to cause someone to rush through resolving a seemingly really important "problem". However if the resolution actually just leaves you filling out a fake form, that then makes a fake problem go away ... The fact that you just gave all of your personal information to some hacking group in a foreign country will most likely go completely unnoticed until one of your - hundred or so - alter ego's defaults on a loan...

Many of these type of soft target attacks also leave you with a bonus key logger (and etc...) as a totally free "parting gift" to see what else you might be inclined to share.

You see the whole point of the exercise is to be obvious as hell so people get cocky and say "Ha! that was stupid" ...Because that way their confidence will ultimately work against them when the one that isn't quite so obvious (because you really were waiting on an X...) shows up and bites them in the ass.



Security is a practice that must be adhered to at all times ... It is not something you install and then blindly trust to just work.

     (see attachment in previous post)
This has a Viper 8.0 litre, V10: develops >500 BHP  Cool

Interestingly prophetic choice of phrasing there ... Because if one snaps the throttle open on that thing it's going to "spin" alright ... Axially...

Much like the BossHoss, it's a highly impractical (for show only) Trailer Queen.

If you really want to go that fast, just buy a Hayabusa ... Your chances for survival will be much higher.
