1  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: Today at 04:38:45 PM
^What is it with Australia (and New Zealand) lately? They went from being two of the coolest most laid-back countries in the world to being participants in the footrace race to see which so-called "Western Democracy" can be the first to fully embrace totalitarianism. So sad. Sad

What happened to my 40?  I could always depend on 40 to be the rational one, balancing out the radical Renegade, and myself in the middle!

It's sort of like the other day I made a joke about Librium... referring to the drug in Equilibrium, and it went right over someone's head... because life imitates art (there's a Librium that does pretty much what the one in the movie does).  Everything turns on it's head... Stephen Colbert needed to move on from his usual because the world was going to stay this crazy and it become the status quo.

I'm sure this is old.  It has to be!  But I've never seen it before:

I don't think I've seen these gents mentioned here: Unlocking the Truth

From the Stephen Colbert Report: http://www.metalinjection...rilled-by-stephen-colbert (via Metal Injection - 3 good performances there)

Their own site: http://unlockingthetruthband.com/

(note that they by default MUTE their video.  People could learn a lot from these 8th graders)

And wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unlocking_the_Truth

They're pretty cool... been following them for a while now.

Nice looking program... once I got my head around it.

I'd suggest making your own file that does something non-intrusive, and showing the end result in your screenshots.  I think it would help with understanding the program.

It shouldn't be the pdf assembly, as it's self contained in the directory, and not installed- it's just a library that I call.  I also use a (few different) PDF drivers on different machines, and haven't seen any behavior like you've said.  I'd like to test that out... but I understand if you're not willing.

Thanks for the feedback in any case!

A variation on the problem is that I have deleted a file from a folder but it was still there. When some 15 sec later I wanted to delete it again, it would give me an error message (i.e. it was already deleted but it wasn't cleared from view). I had to navigate to another folder and then back to "refresh" the folder and get rid of the 'nonexistent' file.

You are persuading me to stick with 9 LOL smiley

UPDATE: Added HTML Export.  Need feedback on whether its confusing- instead of putting some dropdown or something, I just used the expedient of the selected file filter, i.e. if you choose PDF in the save dialog, it will export in PDF- otherwise it's HTML.

It's not confusing, but it didn't work on my system. Even when PDF is selected (which is the default option), it still saves it as HTML (and so does the HTML option). Personally I don't need the PDF option. Normally I print to PDF, and looks like CTRL+P does trigger the printer, so that's sufficient.
it is based off of the extension currently, so if you don't put an extension in, it will default to html.  I might find a different way to do it if I can't get the filter.

Clicking on the Information icon crashes the app on my system (Win 7, 64-bit).
Can you provide any more information?  I have a win7 64-bit machine and it is working which is why I ask for more information.

Also, I had some encoding issues, with dashes, apostrophes, quotation marks and French accented characters being replaced by a dark square with a question mark.

Was it that way in the export?  And can you provide a sample document?

I wasn't sure what the button before the close button is for. It didn't seem to do anything.
It doesn't.  Haven't gotten that in yet.

Otherwise it works fine, renders Markdown correctly. Aesthetically speaking, I'd prefer if it didn't justify paragraphs or at least the headings (i.e. align text left instead), as it makes the text look messy, by stretching it out (actually the paragraphs look fine, it's the longer headings really that are a problem).
it shouldn't be justifying anything.  I'm rendering the HTML using a flow control... so the only thing it should be doing is wrapping lines.  Because it's a flow control, it might change spacing until it can wrap.  And I don't see it justifying headings... that first line in the screenshot is a heading and it's aligned left.  I might need a screenshot or even a sample if you can to understand what you're saying?

But it's coming together nicely, so keep up the good work! Thanks! Thmbsup

Thanks for the feedback!

@wraith808: I guess if you'd read the books or any of the hype then you'd know they were aimed squarely at teens.  I usually just go, "Sci-Fi, I'll have to give it a try."   smiley

Plus, I guess, it's the hope that maybe one of these films will actually be worth the time undecided

Or have a teenager.  Grin  I'm just glad that she reads all the time... and if that's what she wants to read and watch, then more power to her!  Thmbsup

well I guess this topic can be deleted.  not being affected, I guess I shouldn't have posted.  embarassed
14  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Wordfence Hacked on: December 14, 2014, 04:08:25 PM
He found the problem using Wordfence

I found out where's the problem with Wordfence

If you are referring to


Those are not Wordfence files, if a plugin uses WP's Includes folder to insert js and php files I would not use it to start with...

How are the updated one's not Wordfence's files if the fix is to re-download the archive?

I'm not sure... I wasn't affected.  I just figured someone might benefit from knowing in the case that their site was displaying the same symptoms.
15  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Wordfence Hacked on: December 14, 2014, 03:17:48 PM
where do these say Wordfence was hacked?

Look at the wordpress support page.  There are two specific files in the wordfence update archive that propagate the problem. There has been no 'official' statement.  But that would be one hell of a coincidence.

I've had the same issue now (soaksoak.ru, wp 4.0.1, hostgator, only in chrome with phishing and malware protection enabled). I found out where's the problem with Wordfence

Btw, there was soaksoak.ru error in the chrome console last couple of days, but the sites were working fine, until today.

Anyway, try this first - download fresh wp installation, and check these files, if they're recently changed, I'm guessing you got the same two hacked:

Replace them with the files from the fresh installation.

If it isn't the problem with them, install Wordfence and scan to find the issue.

Now I'm trying to find out how the hell this happened, and I came accross your post. We have a number of client sites, with identical dev versions on the hostgator and live ones on other hosts, live sites are perfectly fine, dev sites got the hack (literally all of them), figure can't be the issue with the sites, so I'm guessing it's something up to hostgator.

BTW - Am I the only one here who wasn't impressed by Equilibrium?

Maybe not the only one.  But I'm not in that camp.  I loved it.

Any feedback... positive or negative on this?  I'm moving right now, so probably won't be able to finish the additional features until week after next, but wanted to see if there was any feedback.

18  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Silder Revolution (not Wordfence) Hacked on: December 14, 2014, 11:35:49 AM
Thankfully, I don't use Wordfence, but apparently it was hacked.  Apparently several (1000s?) Wordpress sites have been hacked through a vector of an old version of Slider Revolution.  I found out from going to dulfys.net, and looking for updates.




And the quote for succinctness:

Looking into it, thanks for the headsup.

It is a know issue affecting multiple wordpress sites apparently. Either vulnerable plugin or something in wordpress: https://wordpress.org/sup...with-soaksoakru?replies=5

Update: We have identified and removed the hacked files. The site should be okay now. May take a day for the warning to clear.


Apparently the attack vector has been identified.  Again, I don't use it... so just posting this as a PSA.

I'm starting to find these movies rather tedious being, seemingly, rather teen oriented.

The Maze Runner (first of what seems to be a series)
The Hunger Games
The Giver (which reminded me of a toned down PG13 version of the far better Equilibrium)

I don't get it.  They *are* teen movies, aren't they?  Based on teen books?  No more adult oriented than If I Stay, or Fault of Our Stars, right?

I'm getting ready to move, so decided to look around, and there was a Music Resource Center in the area that provides music instruction + studio time to under-privileged kids in the area.  I've been taking this trombone with me from move to move... but I don't really play anymore.  I didn't even know if they'd want it, it's so old and dinged up, but it works.  The excitement that they had to get the instrument was worth way more than the sentimental value of keeping it around.

Just food for thought, as I'd not even thought about looking into it before now.
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: silly humor - post 'em here! [warning some NSFW and adult content] on: December 12, 2014, 12:56:11 PM

Why not LISP?

I've started working my way through Clojure for the Brave and True.  Pretty nice so far.

If you're working in Clojure, you might want to take a look at Light Table.  Pretty impressive!  And if you're on Windows, installing it with Chocolatey is really easy.
23  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: File collection manager on: December 10, 2014, 04:38:32 PM
I posted it on Elance. I plan to leave it up at least through the weekend until I decide which developer to work with.

I'd be... careful.  Having done work at similar sites, their procedures for escrow and payment and management of the project can leave a little to be desired.  And in general, you don't find out until you're in the project.  But I haven't worked on that one in particular, so I can't give first hand experience with it.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Windows 10 Package Manager vs. Chocolatey on: December 10, 2014, 04:06:59 PM
Apparently Windows 10 is going to have a proper package manager.  Except... with the way that they've gone with the Windows Store, I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing.

Enter Chocolatey.  It is a package manager... and exists.  And is OSS.

... or not.

Enter the new version of Chocolatey.  That was a successful Kickstarter project.  And mentioned... Chocolatey Pro.


Anyone have any thoughts on this?  I love Chocolatey.  But I hate the dichotomy of a pro version vs. a 'community' version.  And I don't trust Microsoft to have our best interests at heart... even with their embrace of OSS.  And this is from someone that loves MS products and .NET.

XYplorer has paper folders as of v14.30.0100 and later -> Xyplorer 14.30 notes...

From the link I gave...

"Paper Folders can be used just like normal folders in virtually all contexts in XYplorer: You can bookmark them, search them, filter them, branch view them, tag their items, generate reports on them, copy their stuff, paste stuff into them, drag stuff into them, color their contents, customize their icons, cache their thumbnails, show custom columns for them, save their folder view settings, etc."

I know about these, and talked about them above.  It just doesn't give the level of ease or functionality something devoted to the job does.

But I've realized this project is probably too big for this site, so I've put a request up at a freelance site and am already getting proposals. Which isn't to say someone here can't take this on - I'm happy to work with anyone who is enthusiastic about the project! I'm just anxious to fund the project see it through to completion.

Not necessarily too big- but you have to really get it and be driven to do it- or be paid for it.

Out of curiosity, what freelance site did you use?
