I want to build a website providing info on how to maintain focus and avoid distractions, targeted at those with ADHD, and use this for the background. tongue

I just brewed a cup of Dunkin Donuts pumpkin spice coffee right in my mug, using a medium sized one of these:

[attach=1]

I set it in the mug, stuck a filter in it, added 1 scoop of coffee (1/8 cup or 2 TBS...it's a big mug), then poured hot water over it till it started covering the grounds. Then picked it up and let it drain. The coffee came out good!  smiley

I have done this with loose tea before (without the filter). Never thought to do it with coffee.

So, yeah, now I have a 1 cup coffee maker, without DRM, that cost me a whopping $0.33. And it brews loose tea, too. cheesy

Feature requests:

1. That tray balloon should have a check box on it to not show it to you again.

2. Remember the last Slack domain used, in the text box.

Nope, I'm using one called Awesomium. Not 100% sure what it is based on but it worked very nicely for the main functions.

From what I understand, it's based on Chromium 18, which is quite old, released back around the end of 2011. (Current version is v40.) So, this would be V8/WebKit based, not Blink.

No devices in or on your car. No scanning your license plate. No key fobs. No QR codes.

Biometrics...your finger is all you need...pay by touch. The same finger can fuel up any car you happen to be driving, even a rental car. And if your car is stolen, they don't get to take your finger with it, usually.

http://usatoday30.usatoda...-shell-pay-by-touch_n.htm

And if they can move this to the trigger on the nozzle, you wouldn't have to even think about it....except in winter, when you wouldn't be able to get any gas without taking your glove off. Or when driving through NJ or Oregon, where it's illegal to pump your own gas.

Slack used by companies for internal communications, sort of a cross between Twitter and IRC, but more private. It's actually kind of cool.

One of the companies I work for has a paid Slack account and uses it a lot. There is kind of a need for me to keep this open at all times, but for Windows users, the only options available are in your browser, or via using the IRC or XMPP gateways (which both leave something to be desired).

Having to have yet another browser tab open at all times is something I'd like to avoid. Mac users, which would describe most of my co-workers, have an official dedicated Slack app they can use (very much like what Stephen has built), as do mobile users. The best they can offer for Windows & Linux users is instructions for how to create a desktop shortcut that will open Slack in Chrome. I wouldn't call that a good substitute for a dedicated app.

But I honestly don't have a great deal of optimism.

What doesn't make me very optimistic is how it was announced.

When a commercial application goes freeware, it's usually announced with great joy and enthusiasm.

This cow doesn't look very happy to be free.

11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ad blocking add-ons in Pale Moon 25 on: October 18, 2014, 04:47:30 PM
I already have Adblock 2.1.5 on my copy of Palemoon 24.5, so I guess I will stay here for a while.

You can and should upgrade Pale Moon to v25, for security reasons.

Just replace your current ABP with the edited one I linked to. Once either ABP or ABE releases their own version that officially supports Pale Moon, everything will be back to normal.  smiley

It's not politics in this case. The decision to drop the info labeling Pale Moon as a variant of Firefox was for the users, so they would stop getting crap from sites about running an outdated version of Firefox. It's not outdated. The GUI may be based on Firefox 24, but the backend is very much matched to the current release of Firefox.

The issue with ABP & ABE is more related to them catching up with the changes, and hopefully they will. Otherwise someone may have to keep editing the official releases of ABP to work with Pale Moon.

I am also hoping Google gets with it, catches up, and stops treating Pale Moon as an unknown browser that needs to use the old versions of their pages. I am having to use User Agent Switcher with the Pale Moon 24 user agent to get the newer toolbar with the G+ alerts and the newer Google Images UI. Without the mention of Firefox in the user agent, they are treating Pale Moon as if it were IE 6 or some kind of crap that can't handle their newer UI.  Sad

What it means is that unless and until the developers of both Adblock Plus and Adblock Edge decide to officially support Pale Moon, you will not be able to use the official versions of those add-ons and will have to rely the one I linked to, instead.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Ad blocking add-ons in Pale Moon 25 on: October 16, 2014, 04:29:27 PM
Users of the Pale Moon browser recently discovered, upon upgrading to Pale Moon 25, that 2 popular add-ons for blocking ads (Adblock Plus & Adblock Edge) no longer worked properly. The main complaint was the disappearance of the toolbar icon.

This issue was the result of a decision of the Pale Moon developers to stop identifying the browser as Firefox variant, and for Pale Moon to have its own unique application GUID.

In most cases this caused no issues with regards to add-on compatibility, since Pale Moon does accept add-ons with a Firefox GUID, as well as those with a Pale Moon GUID.

But with regards to Adblock Plus and Adblock Edge, there will be a need going forward for both add-ons to officially support Pale Moon, or they will not work.

You can read more about it here:


Unless and/or until both add-ons begin officially supporting Pale Moon, you will either have to find other means for blocking ads, or use this edited Adblock Plus add-on, from the Pale Moon site. Please be sure to remove Adblock Plus/Adblock Edge from your browser before installing this version:


After installing this version you will notice the return of your toolbar icon and that the add-on functions as it should.

From my understanding, it's only SSLv3... right?  Which shouldn't really be in use?

https://securityblog.redh...nerability-cve-2014-3566/

Well, v2 shouldn't be in use, either.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: SSL broken, again, in POODLE attack on: October 15, 2014, 08:13:32 PM
And just like the Chrome fix, you will have to put it in the shortcut you use to launch it, because it has to be done every time you start the browser. It's not a one time fix & forget.

Whoops. Yes. Good point. You need to create a shortcut for it. A crappy fix, but better than nothing.

Also watch out for external links from other apps opening in Opera or Chrome, as they will not launch your browser with the command line parameter.

  • Opera: You are screwed too.

Solved! (solution found here)

1) Find your proper Opera executable folder, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\25.0.1614.50_0
    It is NOT in C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\
2) Run opera.exe --ssl-version-min=tls1
3) SSL is now turned off. Check it for the vulnerability at the link NigelH posted above.

My first hint about this issue was when my IRC client disconnected from Slack very early this morning and wouldn't reconnect. I thought the issue was on my end, rebooted twice, went googling the error messages I was getting, etc. But it turned out that Slack turned off SSLv3 as soon as they found out about this, and my IRC client didn't support TLS, so I had to go find a version of Xchat that does and doesn't crash when I lose my internet connection. That was a big chunk out of my day today.  Sad

Damn.
Since my main box blew up, I have had to use a spare computer with dismal graphics and no way to remedy.  Opera is the only browser that 'behaves' on this box.  Damn.
 Sad

Windows box? If so, try K-Meleon. If it ran well on my ancient Pentium I with 64mb RAM and the 2mb onboard S3 Trio graphics, it should run well on just about anything better.  Wink

From the researchers that brought you BEAST and CRIME comes another attack against Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), one of the protocols that's used to secure Internet traffic from eavesdroppers both government and criminal.

Calling the new attack POODLE—that's "Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption"—the attack allows a man-in-the-middle, such as a malicious Wi-Fi hotspot or a compromised ISP, to extract data from secure HTTP connections. This in turn could let that attacker do things such as access online banking or e-mail systems. The flaw was documented by Bodo Möller, Thai Duong, and Krzysztof Kotowicz, all of whom work at Google. Thai Duong, working with Juliano Rizzo, described the similar BEAST attack in 2011 and the CRIME attack in 2012.

The attack depends on the fact that most Web servers and Web browsers allow the use of the ancient SSL version 3 protocol to secure their communications. Although SSL has been superseded by Transport Layer Security, it's still widely supported on both servers and clients alike and is still required for compatibility with Internet Explorer 6. SSLv3, unlike TLS 1.0 or newer, omits validation of certain pieces of data that accompany each message. Attackers can use this weakness to decipher an individual byte and time of the encrypted data, and in so doing, extract the plain text of the message byte by byte.

As with previous attacks of this kind against SSL, the most vulnerable application is HTTP. An example attack scenario would work something like this. An adversary (typically in cryptography literature known as Mallory) sets up a malicious Wi-Fi hotspot. That Wi-Fi hotspot does two things. On non-secure HTTP connections, it injects a piece of JavaScript. And on secure HTTP connections, it intercepts the outgoing messages and reorganizes them.

That's a great scenario! Grow up to be ninjas!

Turtles are always too young to leave home, even if they are 100 years old. They carry it with them wherever they go.  cheesy

Because the whole point of the Keurig was to not waste money making a whole pot when you only wanted one cup.

You see, what we have here is a failure to drink enough coffee... 

There is no failure to drink enough regular coffee in my home. When a full pot is made by me, the full pot is consumed by me.

Where this becomes an issue is with flavored coffees. I don't really like to drink more than a cup of it at a time and usually only brew it when I have someone else willing to drink the rest of the pot.

I had recently considered buying one of these coffee makers for the purpose of brewing single cups of flavored coffees, using one of those refillable cups...and for my hubby to brew an occasional cup of decaf for himself.

But now? Forget it! I'll just have to use one of these.

Nope it's a different one.

Yeah, I still need to finish this one. It has some things that need to be tweaked.

But I don't think it would be quite suitable for NANY. It really is designed purely for Coding Snacks.
