I have a bucket containing about half of these, sitting on the table. I think I'll just eat all the Mounds. They are not on the list. cheesy

It would be nice if you could discover what was enabling the audio alerts before, since they are no longer working for me. Sad

complete a certain number of coding snack requests
What's that number? embarassed And who decides? tellme Wink

Mouser decides, and I don't remember what he said the number will be. All I remember is that I would not qualify to get one of the t-shirts, myself, yet.

If that were made into a shirt, I would so buy it!

The idea is not to buy it, but to earn it. It's supposed to be a reward for those that complete a certain number of coding snack requests.

I can work on it locally, then package the whole thing up, database & all, and then hand it over to mouser. It would then be up to him to use it or not. And if he chooses not to, do I then host it myself? Does etiquette say that's an acceptable thing to do? Or do I end up having to accept the idea that I just did a ton of work for nothing?  tellme

So, what you need to do is go through your websites, find and fix any Delicious links that are pointing to the old legacy del.icio.us domain and change them all to delicious.com.

Quote
Google blacklisted bit.ly several days ago in a move that caught many publishers off guard. We started seeing spotty reports of del.icio.us being blacklisted over the weekend and it has now gone full-blown with all del.icio.us links apparently being blacklisted by Chrome as hosting malware.

[...]

Delicious has changed hands several times over the years and recently was re-sold earlier this year to Science Inc. They also rebranded several years ago to delicious.com which is not blacklisted, but there are likely a large number of legacy .us links out there. [Edit: Thanks Kelson]

Bit.ly has now been removed from Google’s Safe Browsing list which is the list that Google maintains of known malicious websites that engage in malware distribution and phishing. [Edit: Correction, we are still seeing bit.ly links being flagged by Google's GSB and Chrome] It’s also one of the data sources that Wordfence uses to scan your site’s files, posts and comment for malicious activity and infections.

Overall, this is probably one of the most depressing threads I've read in a long time.  Sad

I'm not a coder. But I am a musician. And if musicians (as a collective) can routinely gather "fiercely independent personalities" (including the occasional hyper-talented albeit bona fide sociopath) to collaborate on artistically valid, and financially remunerative projects...I'm wondering why coders can't do the same?

Is this 'problem' real? Or is it just something coders have programmed themselves to believe? huh

I wasn't speaking about developers in general. I was speaking about here and from experience.

Check the date on this post and read through that thread: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=25932.0

That thread was started after a discussion in the IRC channel, and mouser suggested I post about it and get some input from the community.

Almost 3.5 years later and I am sitting here with the feeling that I should have just gone ahead and done it, and handed it to mouser. And it still bothers me enough that I am considering just doing it and calling it my NANY project for this year.  Sad

And I don't care if it ends up only being used for a few months, or ultimately, a few years.

So, it's not that there isn't a desire to contribute, and not that we don't want to work together. Some of us are still waiting for their assignments, have sat by and watched someone else end up with the assignment they were best suited for, watched that person eventually abandon the project, and are getting the feeling that they are never going to be taken seriously, and are trying really hard not to take it personally and feel insulted by it.

Is that how big projects get done? Obviously not, if 3.5 years later we still don't have a DoCo 2.0 or at the very least, a proper software repository.

Do you all (who originally joined that group) remember?

Yes, I do...and I remember the one on Flickr, too...and maybe a few other places. We don't seem to do so well as a group, when we wander away from home (this forum).

We have peanut, peanut butter and mint M & Ms, why not raisin M & Ms? Wine tastes better chilled, so do chocolate-covered raisins.

We also have plain, coconut, dark chocolate, almond, pretzel, and crispy (which tastes like a malted ball).

You want fruit? Eat Skittles.  tongue

Is there an official Cody svg or png?

Not official, but there is a Cody vector that I made for Paintshop Pro, attached to this post.

We might accomplish DoCo 2.0, or perhaps not.  embarassed

We'd probably accomplish too many opinions, too much discussing, and no actual decisions that are actionable by anyone. Comparable to the development of any of a number of famous vaporware projects.

In a nutshell, we'd have to bring in an outside project manager, highly experienced in dealing with large groups of fiercely independent personalities, to have any hope of getting the project off the ground. Otherwise, we will just all run around doing our own thing, waiting for someone to tell us what needs to be done and what our part in it will be.

I am sorry that I am not kidding. Just being realistic.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Malware blocked at DC !?! on: October 25, 2014, 07:10:53 PM
You need at minimum a decent third party firewall software

Keep in mind that most firewall apps pop up alerts like crazy, accusing the entire internet of trying to attack you, and letting you know that they protected you from all those "attacks".  They want to make you paranoid enough to pay and keep using their product. And even the reputable firewall apps do this. mad

You will want to find that setting that turns just those tin foil alerts off, first thing. Otherwise, the coincidence of the popups coinciding with your PC activities may make you wrongly believe some very innocent people are up to no good.

And people call me a douche or cheap ass for using ad blocking software. Pfft. Yeah, that's one of the reasons why I run it and never click on ads.

Try to count the black dots
 (see attachment in previous post)

Furbillies! (Yes, I am an Ed Emberley fan  Cool)

But you are not supposed to count the dots. It's a maze full of furbillies, and you make them get out of your way by looking at them.

Thanks a lot from out team! It works! Just one feature request: notifications!

Optional! And no balloons!

Perhaps use a small toaster style alert that won't activate your taskbar.

You want me to build a site about epilepsy, too?  huh

no, that's inducing epilepsy!!

Fine! I'll build a website for them, after the ADHD one, using this as the background.  tongue

25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DRM in your coffee maker, to stop you from brewing unlicensed coffees on: October 21, 2014, 01:41:03 AM
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
