1  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / Re: Ark: Survival Evolved is free for the weekend on Steam (through Aug 31, 2015) on: Today at 12:08:36 PM
And just in case that didn't clear things up for you, in the case of ARK this weekend it means free during the weekend promo.

And this is the reason I usually don't try them... unless I'm thinking of imminently purchasing, or the size is small.  Downloading a demo to the tune of multi-GB downloads just doesn't seem productive to me.

I find the whole uBlock/uBlock Origin thing to be an unfortunate and confusing mess.
agreed -
the fact of it ('Origin') going beyond my idea of what an adblocker does, made me more active in reporting my preference.

Add me to this list, Origin just became too intrusive so I switched back to uBlock (non-Origin).

Quote
FWIW I'm currently using PaleMoon and 'Adblock Latitude' - I am still waiting for the ideal browser/adblocking extension ;-)

I'm using PM with uBlock (0.9.5.0) since they provided support for the pre-Australis interface I thought I may as well try it out - was using Adblock Latitude for a while.

It's also funny that they tested Ghostery, but not Disconnect.  I saw their reasoning, and found it... lacking.  I'm using Disconnect and uBlock and those two together seem to be covering it.  Disconnect blocks most of them first, and uBlock gets whatever slips through.
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's up with WinPatrol? on: Today at 12:04:09 PM
This thread made me actually install WinPrivacy and WinPatrol. I bought them during the 'last great hurrah because lifetime licenses are going away" and thought maybe I should check to see if the license information they sent me actually works.  Grin

Two things -

First: Holy crap! I can't believe what they are charging for these two programs now! I paid less than half of an annual license fee for one product & got two lifetime licenses.

Second: Holy crap again! These two programs look like their UIs escaped from the early 90s.

Agreed on both.  He tried to make the new one (WinPrivacy) look more modern.  He failed.

But their functionality can't be beat.  It's like having someone looking at your computer while you're using it, and seeing if someone else is trying to screw you and warning you. It can be annoying with the pop ups saying do you want to authorize this... but it's saved me a lot of time fixing the wife and kids computers...

^ FWIW I prefer the uBlock variation - the "origin" version started blocking whole webpages which I felt wasn't it's job:
http://www.donationcoder....41317.msg385536#msg385536

Same here.  And the direction that's been taken since the split has confirmed at least in my mind, my choice.

I take it you're recommending it?  Why?  What do you like about it?  Just curious... I've been thinking, but it's priced too high right now for me to take a chance on it with the limited things I've seen.

7  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: PhraseExpander Professional for PC 79% off $29.99 on: August 27, 2015, 06:24:35 PM
I thought it could be interesting for somebody to give it a try as there has not been discount like this for ages (I think back in 2014 or so). I have been truly unable to find anything active since. I use PhraseExpress and I am a bound to it as its export features are crippled (I know that Phrase Expander have some migration tool available). Both two previous work perfectly at home but are pretty useless when you have corporate restricted PC access - either no USB version (Pexp) or USB write restriction (PE needs to create xml on start up). Hence recently I realised that only Breevy does the work at best (btw new version should launch early) when one sets it up to work along Citrixvia clipboard.
I use them for medical reports as it speeds up the turnaround time together with my collection of canned reports.
Sorry for 2 posts only - I am usually just checking discounts forum here.


It's fine.  Thank you for posting it, as it created interesting conversation! 

I think what Curt was alluding to was the fact that some accounts are drive bys, that post a link and don't participate.  As a supporting member, you've already participated even if you haven't been verbally participating.  And any level of participation- from posts, to money, to time- is, I think, appreciated.  That's what makes DC works.  And I, for one, look forward to your next informative post!  You might only have 2 (3 now), but they've introduced welcome information, so your signal-to-noise ratio is very low, unlike some of us that post nonsense just for fun smiley  Who... me?  huh

In a nutshell, you're very welcome, no matter how much you participate.  Cool Thmbsup

I don't get how you use that for multiple sites?  And you just have to remember where the password is?  I like the Enigmaze idea better with a diary and UV light and you can trace any path, though that is an interesting idea I'd not seen.

Yes, I got it backwards.  My mind knew what I was saying, but my fingers didn't.

And yes, of course you are correct- but having them consolidated into a platform is a good thing... at least for me.

No Oblivion or Skyrim? Sad

Still pretty cool. But I thought I had purchased the Fallout Trilogy on GOG before, but it says I don't own them.

Huh. I just checked and they are in my GOG library. But GOG still says I don't own them on the store page.

That's the latest incident that you can see on the thread.  I was confused too.

Basically, the one from before was by Interplay.  These are by Bethesda.  They're the same, but the new one is apparently enhanced.

There was some concern that they had taken the extras off of the classics- but they apparently moved them to a different menu.

DukeNukemForever: I would highly recommend that gog would add some more informations about the differences between Bethesdas re-releases and Interplay classic releases. So far I know the re-release has some mods added, like the Baldur's Gate remakes. Multilingual isn't also new, as the Interplay releases on Dotemu wee also multilingual. That's not a Bethesda excluse, only gogs late move to multilingual support. Also multiplatform support seems to be gone, but that's also no surprise, as GOG did back them for Interplay (first dosbox, later wine versions).

So yeah, some officieal explanations what's new would be very nice.

Edit: Another thing, thread title is talking about Fallout classics while the versions are not the new labelled classics from Interplay. So yeah, kind of confusing. So, are these versions the Bethesdas updated and modded versions like on steam, or are these just the old Interplay versions just new branded?

The only difference between the Classic editions and the Fallouts from Bethesda is that the Classic versions (as we've decided to call them) have more bonus goodies and support one additional platform - OS X. Other than that, those two editions should be identical. The main reason for this difference is that the approval process for the remaining bonus goodies takes a lot of time and we didn't want to hold up the release just because of that. Wink
To answer another question - will we ever have them included in the Bethesda versions? We will do everything in our power, of course, but I can't say for certain that we will.

And apparently the free games are a permanent deal.

Do you have adblockers and such installed?  One of them might be causing the problems.

Unfortunately, nobody is quite sure what to replace passwords with. So passwords it is for now.

I'm actually starting to use Enigmaze.

I backed it in the Kickstarter.  But that doesn't solve my problem with sharing with my wife, so I don't use it for all of them (of course, 2 factor has that problem too- but with lastpass, I authenticate once and am done).  It's now on Amazon if you're interested.

I've been trying the Slimjet version of Chrome for several months and it has no issues with WinPatrol or WinPrivacy downloads/updates.

The site is fine currently.  At least in Chrome

Thanks Deo, for that information.  Without a browser extension, I won't be trying it.  I use mine a lot to have my passwords available to my wife, and she's not really technical.

It can import from LastPass. So you can continue to use LastPass in your browser on your desktop, and just use Enpass on your mobile device, if you'd like.

LastPass is $12/year on mobile. Enpass is a one-time $10 purchase.

Why would I do that?  Seems like two vectors instead of just one.  And two places to keep passwords updated, unless I continually import.  And no way to go back from an update in Enpass to Lasspass.  But thanks for the suggestion.

22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: LastPass alternatives with two-factor authentication? (including premium LP) on: August 25, 2015, 04:25:08 PM
I wrote to LastPass support about this and they said it was for their stupid LastPass browser that is also built into the app. I told them the browser was superfluous and that they should separate it into another app if they wanted to include that functionality, because all I wanted from them was to be able to store and retrieve my passwords. They didn't really respond to that.
Isn't the problem that Google won't allow extensions to be added to any Android browser by a third party, so the only way to make logins seamless is for the password program's authors make their own browser with the functionality built in?  At least, that's what I thought from reading Sticky Password's information.

I'm on iOS, and that problem hasn't presented itself- it asked me once, and I said no.  It still works fine.

I was using Foxit reader for the longest time- then they grew to big for common sense and started including stuff in the installer and in the program for advertising.  Has that changed?
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Startups and the Big Lie on: August 25, 2015, 09:56:26 AM
Often it feels to me like economic success is one big pyramid scheme... Here's an article about the central role lying plays in the startup model where companies raise billions based on a mirage of get-rich-quick success they create.

Money begets money.  That's a seminal truth.  I would agree to you that it's as corrupt as you make it out to be- if not for one thing.  Haven't been in that situation, it's expected.  When we were doing it, we cut to the bone, and asked for only what we needed to get going.  And found that what someone had told us was true- scale matters.  If you ask for only a little money, they expect you to fail, and expect that the idea isn't worthy of consideration.  It's a system that those that you are asking for money made.  You're playing by their rules.  And their rules require you to lie.

Details seem missing from the story.


I agree.  Details seem a bit sketchy.
He was quick on the draw.
 

It was only penciled in at the time.

Canvasing the comments has proven quite interesting.


I still wouldn't draw any conclusions from it. I'd wait until we get the complete picture.

I see the fountain of wisdom in that penning.

I think it's time that somebody here took the lead.
 

All is well that pens well.


That's penning review.
