yourvideo.webm. You cannot upload that type of file. The only allowed extensions are txt,jpg,jpeg,gif,mpg,png,zip,rar,7z,ahk,fbs,mov,avi,mpg,rm,exe,mid,mp3,wav,grid,opml,tgz,gz,xml,ini,alias,wma,ogg,xz,pdf,apk,wmv,mp4,asf,webp.

webm is (was?) the declared future of videos on the web, and is regarded as safe content in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge. Surely webm is a must for allowed filetypes here on DC?!

Probably just something he missed, it was only last year I alerted him to the fact JPEG files couldn't be uploaded yet JPG could be (SMF is very literal when it comes to things lol)

The actual upgrade *might* take place a little earlier than the 1st.. perhaps this weekend, in order to guarantee that the upgrade is smoothly finished by the 1st.


I shall translate that for everybody:

"I just want to get this over and done with as quickly as possible then I can go back to having some sort of real life again"  Grin

FAQ - I cannot enable Cortana alpha in India. How do I get it work?
Share in Facebook
Tweet
In this way you can get Cortana’s alpha version working on your phone in India.

First of all, you need to have Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, check your phone OS version from Settings > about > more information. You will need OS version 8.10.14141.167 or later. Try to get an update from Settings > phone update > check for updates if required.

Then, set your phone to the correct region, language and select English (UK) speech language:

Region - India,
Language- English (India)
Speech language - English (UK)
To do that, follow the steps below:

Select Settings > region, tap Country/Region, select India and tap restart phone if required.
Select Settings > language. If English (India) appears on the language settings screen, long tap on it and select move up. Or add a new language: Tap + add languages, select English (India), tap done and finally tap Yes to start downloading. This change requires restart, tap restart phone.
Select Settings > speech, tap Speech language and select English (United Kingdom). Tap Yes to start downloading and track its status from Settings > phone update. Once the speech package is downloaded, tap install and your phone will automatically restart.
Wait for your phone to install the update, during that you will see gears rotating on the screen for up to 10 minutes.
Once ready, a new screen stating that the update is completed. Tap done, and go to Settings > speech, tap Speech language and select English (United Kingdom). 
When your phone is set to the correct region, language and speech language, go to Cortana by pressing the Search key. You will see two Cortana acknowledgement screens, where you will need to review the info and accept the conditions for using the Cortana alpha version.

Want to disable it?

Disabling is easy. Just change your phone's language back to English (India) and Cortana will disappear. When you tap on the Search key, you would get Bing search instead.

I am trying to sign up.  After filling in the form, there is no Submit button.  Pressing Enter in any of the fields does nothing.   Pretty strange.

Anyone know the secret handshake?




OK..I'm gonna just come right out with it...

WHY?

Are the Acer power-management tools/drivers/add-ons installed? They caused similar behavior on a slow Acer laptop I serviced few weeks ago, where this happened when the Acer-'enhanced' power-setting was enabled. Switching to a standard power-scheme fixed it for me.

No too sure off hand if they are installed, but the power settings don't (seem to) change at all no matter if I am plugged in or on battery (I set the power options to do that awhile ago whilst troubleshooting another issue that would make the laptop lag o hell when it was plugged in)

You have my sympathies.
Disregard @rgdot's silly comment about "Poltergeist" - maybe he's got his pills mixed up, otherwise his technical causal problem analysis skills would seem to be clearly lacking. Still, you could try exorcism if you feel he might be on the right track, I suppose.     ohmy

It does sound like an unusual problem though - at any rate, I don't recall having heard of it before now. I tried this search: Brightness settings reversing on Acer Aspire
Not sure if there's anything useful there. Your query on DC forum comes up in the list.

Yep. can't find a damn thing about it haha - Nothing on Google, nothing on Acers forums, nothing even remotely close to it...very odd lol
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Brightness Settings Reversing - No apparent reason. on: August 18, 2015, 08:42:12 PM
Over the past few weeks (Before upgrading to Windows 10 and since the upgrade) my laptop has been acting rather odd.  When I close the lid (Which puts her into hibernate) or reboot the laptop, the brightness settings reverse.  It happens regardless of if I am using mains power or battery...If my brightness settings were full when I shut the lid, when I open it, I have a black screen and have to turn brightness DOWN for it to be UP...then if I reboot/shut the lid and open it, it will do it all over again.

Laptop is an Acer Aspire E 15 (E5-51-C619) - My Mrs has one of these as well, though she hasn't had this issue (still on Windows 8.1 on here, but since my problems started whilst on 8.1, I doubt that's really important).  I haven't installed anything in ages other than Win 10 (Except for one Windows Store game which I added after the problem started) and have not uninstalled anything except for Fallout: NV, which was yesterday via Steam.  Checked for Malware/Spyware/Viruses etc, nothing detected -_-

Needless to say, I am very confused.  Anybody have any sort of clues as to why this is happening?

Were you on regularly?  I would just be surprised if you paid for content and there wasn't a migration plan put in before 4/30.

Just because you make the effort to notify everyone and offer a migration plan, doesn't mean that people will pay attention to their e-mail, see it, respond to it appropriately, and in a timely manner.

Would have been nice if they even did that, but they made no attempt to care.  Those who purchased the onive hardware after April this year got refunded, but that's it!  People who had the premium service for CloudLift at least managed to keep save game files - I just lost everything I ever purchased there.

I last loaded it up around Feb/March time, and there was absolutely no mention of it (via the client at least).
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / OnLive.com has shut down....... on: August 16, 2015, 07:31:01 AM
Well....Talk about annoyed....Here I am, sat watching crap on Youtube when I see a clip from the early 1900's which gave me a craving to boot up OnLive so I can play some Mafia II (I have bought several games via OnLive) - Much to my disappointment I learned that they have shut down, and because it was a streaming service I no longer have access to the things I paid for...

This...is exactly the reason I fucking HATE not having hard copies...and also the reason I hate this "Always Online" bullshit the games industry force upon us...It will also be the last time I buy a game that doesn't come with a direct download that I can play even if a service shuts down.

Quote
After five years of uninterrupted service, the OnLive Game Service comes to an end.
Sony has acquired important parts of OnLive. Due to the sale, all OnLive services were discontinued as of April 30, 2015.

As the first-ever game streaming service of its kind, everyone who has ever played a game using OnLive has contributed to the technology and its evolution in some way. We’re immensely proud of what’s been achieved and extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for being a part of the OnLive Game Service.

Thank you from all of us at –
OL2, Inc. (aka, OnLive)

For CMS...Bolt is a new player and looks to be a contender.

Joomla isn't too bad, once you get how the back-end and internal structures work. Most people don't give a hoot about this, add crappy modules to it to "make it easier" and from that moment they entered into a mess, security wise.

At least Joomla is in active development...

Shouldn't be a problem fr DC...mouser hates modules tongue

@Stephen
Thanks for posting that about the code tag.  I didn't realize syntax highlight would work that easily.  thumbs up

No worries smiley - It works for all the code in the dropdown list on the full reply window - same as all other tags, just drop in whatever you want between the tags, and let the forum do the rest smiley

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Show us a picture of your.. CAR!!! on: August 10, 2015, 03:38:29 PM
Yeah 4 cameras seems a bit excessive  huh

Not really...I plan on way more than that when I get my new wheels - I will have Drivers View recording via a mini-cam hidden in the dash (pointing at drivers face, and remotely accessible) - front facing camera (recording) 2 cameras on the front wings (which will connect to a screen in the car, useful for "corner peeking" where you can select which camera to look through on a screen in the car, and it will show you a nice view of what otherwise may be obstructed) - I will also have 2 of those on the back wings of the car for the same reason.  On top of those I will also have a rear facing camera (not a parking camera...purely for recording purposes).  I will also have a camera pointing out to the sides (will be in the door panels somewhere), which will be on both sides and will be a wide angle lens - this will be a recording only camera - useful for proving an accident wasn't your fault (if hit from the side where your other camera won't be able to see).  All in all that is 10 cameras.

Called this.

Sooner or later if it isn't already, sharing a picture of a kitten leaping into a bucket with your mom will be a high profile crime worthy of half a million dollars in fines and fees and 20-life prison time.

I've been telling people to just practice civil disobedience. This is a law that obviously cannot be enforced because collectively the citizenship of the country simply ignores it and has no interest in obeying it.

If the courts actually worked as intended they would recognize this law is of corrupt intentions and does not benefit the people of the country, so they would order it striken from the books without any further negotiation.

Justice is blind, but she can clearly smell money.

Well, the one lucky thing is...we have the backing of the major software distributors on this one - for example, Apple with iTunes...they ALLOW you to do this (Mainly because other than streaming (which...let's not get into the whole downloading temp-file status) - so if the govt decide to come down on people doing it (even though they said even the IPO have no interest in upholding this pointless law) then they will have some HUGE companies threatening to pull their business out of the country...and we all know that companies threatening to move themselves and no longer have to pay huge amount of taxes, will be far more of an incentive for the government to make changes (Since, most laws are based around money gathering, rather than for the benefit of the general public)

tapatalk -- i'll look into it. anyone else use that?

Not personally, but I know it's been around a long time.  Dunno about how many users it has or what it really does though.

Yes - he just wanted to make it easier to read

Ah yeah, sorry, I was just making it easier for people to read it smiley

Mafia 3 has been anounced! Yay!
Here's someone talking about how Mafia2 gets a bad reap and how he hopes they don't listen too hard to the people saying that the new one has to have big changes:
http://www.gamesradar.com...ain-its-brilliant-quirks/

This guy nails that game and talks about why Mafia2 was so special.  If you're on the fence I encourage you to read it.  Mafia 2 is one of my favorite games I've played.

I loved Mafia II - The only thing that let it down for me, was the inability to go into "Free Roam" mode after completing it.  I wanted to be able to cruise the streets after everything ended and just have some fun in old cars, but it gave you no way to do it Sad

Hopefully Mafia III will not do that!
