1 Software / Android Apps / Re: WhenLast (Android app) - v1.82 - Feb 10, 2015 on: Today at 12:25:22 PM
Do you know your portrait resolution?

Looks like it's 1080x1920, here is a (scaled down) screenshot of what it looks like:

2 Software / Android Apps / Re: WhenLast (Android app) - v1.82 - Feb 10, 2015 on: Today at 11:35:45 AM
So, I installed this today -- looks very nice Thmbsup.

Some observations:

The app icon does not work well on a white background, which is the default in the app drawer in lollipop.

If holding the phone normal (non-landscape), the text indicating the last time a task was performed is broken into a lot of lines, which makes it hard to read, and take up a lot of space. Perhaps put the task name above and the text below instead of side by side in this mode?

Localization would be nice.

Is there an undo option in case you hit the NOW button by accident embarassed.

As far as I know, the original author of ublock transferred ownership to someone else recently, and there was a dispute afterwards about some actions taken (something about taking credit for the extension). ublock origin was an attempt by the original author to rectify the issues he saw, but perhaps they solved it.

I got it as well, and the AdGuard people were nice enough to combine the two licenses with the one I already had (from black friday sale). So I have a new license for 3 now (easier to manage one account for me).

I haven't actually used it yet, because I still have Ad Muncher running here and, except for facebook, I see few adds. But now I will probably try it on the other computers.

KingSoft also has a professional version that costs a "chunk" of money.

There is a comparison page here and here, I have no idea if both are the same company, the web design is different. They also have this homepage, which appears to be the same company and office suite, but with a different name. I guess stuff like this is part of why I have been a little wary of it.

SoftMaker also has a free office suite, comparison here.

Just noticed this announced last week. It is from the author of WebSite-Watcher, which should make it worth checking out:

I'll second ManicTime, if you are looking for time tracking/management software. It stays in the background and on your computer.

Apparently all based on Mark Russinovich saying at a conference that “It’s definitely possible”.

The only real solution, which isn't really a solution, would be to bundle a full-blown malware/AV into the browser so only genuine threats were flagged, but who in the world would want to tackle that coding job, ongoing maintenance, *and* listening to critics declare your browser as bloatware?

Surprisingly many of those also greet anything that looks even the slightest bit unusual with a big red Threat Found! dialog saying the user has something along the lines of Yadayada.Win32.Malware.generic-- where the thing to note is the generic keyword, but what most users will think is just "OMG I ran that file and I got a virus".

It's hard when most users have little idea what threats are, and it's safer for protection software to warn on anything to not risk missing a detection.

Pretty Run is actually mentioned in the FARR manual under related programs.

I have always thought it was a nice gesture of mouser to list the competition embarassed.

14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / WinPatrol going subscription on: March 23, 2015, 10:14:12 AM
I don't know if this has been posted already, but I just read in the latest WinPatrol Newsletter:

Ability to purchase a Subscription free licensing ends March 31st.

Because I'm not one to hide from news that some may not like, I'm putting this at the top of the email.

Tell your everyone you know. The ability to purchase subscription free licensing ends March 31st, 2015.

For everyone who purchases a license on or before March 31st, 2015, we will honor your subscription free license entitling you to free updates in perpetuity.

As an existing customer, nothing will change for you!

  • If you purchase a new computer, so what. You have a license
  • If your computer crashes and you replace it. No big deal, you have a license.
  • If you lose your license, write to us. We'll tell you what it is.
  • If you buy a second, third, fourth or fifth computer, great! You're covered.

Why are we doing this?

  • Without the additional revenue from annual renewals we cannot compete with everyone else. That has become apparent.
  • We've brought in a few people to help us update the PLUS data, only to have them leave very quickly to go elsewhere for more money.
  • I don't want to have to outsource to get help with email support! I want them to report to me as my employee. This guarantees you'll continue to get the quality of support you've grown accustomed to and not be subjected sales pitches for other products when you simply want the help you deserve.
  • This is not an act of greed. This is an act to guarantee your lifetime license for WinPatrol and WinPrivacy truly does last your lifetime.

Tell everyone you know.

Use coupon code "lastchance" (no quotes) to get 25% off a license that lasts forever!

Coupon valid through March 31st, 2015.

Looks like it's 40% off on Steam atm, personally I am still going to wait till I can snatch it for €5-10 on a sale like with Far Cry 3.

For quickly writing automation tasks like clicking buttons, copy-pasting, etc., you might look into AutoHotkey, which I believe some of the coding snacks on this site are written in (I don't have enough experience with it myself to evaluate it, but the results others get seem quite good). I believe it can be used to create GUI as well.

Edit: Oh, and welcome to the site! thumbs up
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: False Positives OpEd from WinPatrol on: February 27, 2015, 02:08:02 AM
His post is pretty spot on. It is ridiculously hard to get through to all the AV vendors to report false positives. It is a shame that the google/microsoft project is only aimed at large companies, who already have the attention of AV companies. A common gateway for reporting false positives would be great, but the odds of all the AV vendors agreeing on that are probably slim.

I don't know what could be done to help small companies and individual developers, perhaps the taggant project could help, or access to more affordable code signing certificates.

They replied there was no way to upgrade to a 4-pack, but they did offer me a special price on three more licenses. Unfortunately that would still make the total price more than double what I could have bought the 4-pack for at the black friday deal if I had gotten that instead (plus upgrading four individual licenses when v7 comes around will cost much more then upgrading a 4-pack).

I guess I was just unlucky buying the wrong thing.

Do I understand it correctly that it only works with pro/ultimate and server versions of Windows?
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: remote control of pc via android phone on: February 19, 2015, 01:07:40 PM
There is also a TeamViewer app that lets you control a PC, and Chrome remote desktop, which I haven't tried.

Edit: I didn't read the part about being able to wake up the PC, sorry -- these will only allow remote control of a running machine I think.

Thanks guys, I think you are right, there is no harm in trying to contact them. I have sent them an email explaining the situation.
23  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Macrium Reflect 6 News on: February 18, 2015, 03:29:00 PM
I should probably have posted a bit more explanation. When I bought v5, I was deciding between the household 4-pack normal license and a single professional license, which were not that far apart in price. I opted for the single professional license to get the extra features.

Now it appears they collapsed the home standard and home professional into a single home product, and if I had opted for the 4-pack normal license, I would now have a 4-pack v6 license, instead of a single one.

I think it is a good idea that they simplified the home licensing, but I feel the extra money I paid for the pro license was wasted.

Looks like it's out:

Update: Looks like I was throwing money out the window buying the v5 Professional edition, which just upgraded to the standard v6 Home edition Sad.
