Personally I'd like two see two NICs (100mbit would be fine), that would make for a very nice and capable router/firewall smiley

USB NIC would give you the second NIC and is fast enough in most cases I would think.

American Politics...I R Bored!

Don't worry, your boredom has just begun, with the upcoming US Presidential elections you will surpass your GAS* limit in record time.  Already I'm over my limit with just the announcement of one of the runners.

I'm not sure it's worth looking at the RRER unless you find that the HDD is repeatedly taking to long to serve some data.

I have 1 x WD, 2 x Samsung, 1 x Seagate HDDs, and 1 x Sandisk SSD in my machine - only the Seagate and Sandisk report anything other than zero for RRER and they are the youngest of the HDDs.

The Samsung's and the WD are each 5+y.o., the Seagate ~3 y.o., and the SSD ~3y.o.

Maybe it's better to just use the same metrics that BackBlaze use unless you notice there is a problem with data communication for the HDD.

Quote
SMART stats are inconsistent from hard drive to hard drive.

Addendum: On another machine I've got a Seagate 500LT012 (2.5" HDD) that is less than a month old, it reports 34024025 for RRER.  It also has a Sandisk SSD that is about 2y.o. which doesn't report RRER at all.

I think the comment above from the BackBlaze blog is pretty much spot on.

I see one potential problem so far. If the app itself associates itself with the registry the DISM app doesn't add the location of the application to the "ProgID".  When I export and import again on a fresh install one would reasonably assume it would know to open INI with Notepad++ but wouldn't know where N++ is.

If you're not going to reinstall the programs associated with the relevant filetypes why are you saving the filetypes?
7  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Is there any way of 'saving' file associations? on: March 25, 2015, 06:14:18 AM
Unfortunately, I won't be able to know if it truly worked until I reinstall, but THANK YOU for the info!!

Edit the XML file to change the default program for a filetype, (make a backup first), for example:

Formatted for XML with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. <Association Identifier=".nfo" ProgId="Applications\notepad.exe" ApplicationName="Notepad" />

Will redirect *.nfo files to be opened in Notepad rather than SystemInfo.

Then import using DISM, log out then in and see what happens when you open a .nfo file.

If an extension doesn't appear in the XML file it probably means that it is set to the default as when Windows was installed, (eg. .txt doesn't appear in my exported file because it still points to Notepad, even though Notepad itself has been replaced by Notepad2).

Use DISM.exe to export/import file associations - see here.

Google Keep, it's probably already on the phone and you probably already have a Google account since it's an Android phone.

So glad to see we have threads about pirating content now! Maybe we can get some threads going on the best way to pirate software as well. Roll Eyes

I'm interested from a purely objective point of view, do you know for a fact that:
a) Where he lives/works/whatever is subject to the same corporate laws that govern the good ol' US of A?
b) He doesn't have permission of the content provider to modify the content of whatever he has got for whatever purpose he's putting it to?

Or have you just jumped to a conclusion without any facts?

If you have is some before/after examples we could probably generate the regex for global replacements within Notepad++.

I used 4wd's script and it did it! My HTML files are clean now! Thank you so much 4wd, you saved my life files!

No problem, I'm still going to get that DOS command file to work though ... (brainwave )

Quote
And also thank you for getting me to learn AutoIt scripting a bit because of your laziness. tongue

If I can instigate action in others by my laziness, well that's a win/win situation in my books  Thmbsup  tongue

Quote
I didn't want it to make more and more duplicate backups, so I studied the script, downloaded AutoIt, tinkered around, and finally made it so that uninfected files wouldn't be backed up.

I am very lazy  tongue

Quote
I apologize for modifying the script without asking for your permission first.

No need, I wouldn't have posted the code, (what there is), if I was concerned about copyright/left/somewhere, (besides I'm probably on the half of the planet that was asleep when you did it)  Grin
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Make Windows 8 login/lockscreen transparent? on: March 17, 2015, 03:32:54 PM
I know you can boot to desktop, but yes, I do want to keep the login. I also tend to lock my computer quite a bit.

It only affects that first sign in screen, (one would hope that you'd be hanging around the minute or so waiting for the computer to boot), any time after when you lock the computer or log out it'll drop back to the lock screen (with whatever wallpaper you've chosen), from there you'll only get the solid colour when you enter your password to unlock/log in again, a matter of a few seconds.

That's the way it's working here in W8.1Pro.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Need help cleaning virus inside HTML files on: March 17, 2015, 12:07:37 AM
Freakin' escaping DOS characters is nuts  huh

Couldn't quite get that to work so here's a quick'n'dirty alternative:

RemVBSfHTM.cmd
RemVBSfHTM.exe

The command file walks the directory tree for .htm and .html files and passes them to the executable which writes out a new temp file up to the point it finds <SCRIPT Language=VBScript> (case insensitive), it then writes out the remainder of the line, closes the file, renames the original file to name-old+vbs, and then moves the temporary file into it's place.

Seems to work here OK but I can't try every possible combination of screwed up file.

Put both files in the same directory somewhere, open a CLI and run using: RemVBSfHTM.cmd <path>

Where <path> is the full path to the top level directory of the tree, quoted if it has spaces in the name, eg. RemVBSfHTM.cmd "K:\html junk"

Source of RemVBSfHTM.exe in AutoIt:
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
  2. #AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y
  3. #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
  4.  
  5. $sTempFile = @TempDir & "\RemVBSfHTM.txt"
  6. $sTest = "<SCRIPT Language=VBScript>"
  7.  
  8. If $CmdLine[0] = 0 Then
  9. Exit (1)
  10. $sFile = $CmdLine[1]
  11.  
  12. $hFile = FileOpen($sFile, 0)
  13. If $hFile = -1 Then
  14. ConsoleWrite("Unable to open '" & $sFile & "' for reading." & @CRLF)
  15. _Exit()
  16. $hTempFile = FileOpen($sTempFile, 2)
  17. If $hTempFile = -1 Then
  18. ConsoleWrite("Unable to open '" & $sTempFile & "' for writing." & @CRLF)
  19. _Exit()
  20.  
  21. $sLine = FileReadLine($hFile)
  22. If StringInStr($sLine, $sTest) > 0 Then
  23. $sLine = StringLeft($sLine, StringInStr($sLine, $sTest) - 1)
  24. FileWriteLine($hTempFile, $sLine)
  25. FileWriteLine($hTempFile, $sLine)
  26.  
  27. FileClose($hTempFile)
  28. FileClose($hFile)
  29.  
  30. If FileMove($sFile, $sFile & "-old+vbs") = 0 Then
  31. ConsoleWrite("Unable to rename '" & $sFile & "' prior to replacement." & @CRLF)
  32. _Exit()
  33. FileMove($sTempFile, $sFile)
  34.  
  35.  
  36. Func _Exit()
  37. EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

It'll write out to RemVBSfHTM.log if it can't open either the original file for reading, the temporary file for writing, or renaming the original file (in which case it won't rename the temporary file).

So it might pay to make sure all files are not read-only and that you have permission to write to them before running.

Also, even if the HTML doesn't contain the relevant line it'll still get replaced, (I'm lazy).

Just asking but if this is the first sign in screen you come to when you first turn on the computer then you can effectively bypass it by having auto-login set, is that an option or do you want to keep the computer password protected at boot?
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Need help cleaning virus inside HTML files on: March 16, 2015, 05:58:24 PM
Correct me if I'm wrong but if it's added after the </HTML> tag then you only need to read through the files to that point writing each line to a temporary file, then replacing the original at the end.

I could probably do this in a batch file, having it recurse through the whole drive, you'd hit problems if there were any restricted permissions but it seems simple enough.  Might have a look later for the intellectual exercise  smiley

More information required, ie. video format, codecs, etc.

eg. I've used this method successfully but it's only good for AVI files which are getting increasingly rare.  But you can always convert to a RAW video AVI, process through VirtualDub, and then encode to final format.

ffmpeg also has a builtin delogo filter if you want to give it a try, I've never used it so don't know how effective it is.

What flavour are you running?

The source should be available under the PM2Linux build if you want to try recompiling.

There's also Trashmail, just create a free account at their site, (any emails sent to the Trashmail address are forwarded for a short period - there are limits with free accounts), and then use their Firefox plugin:

unfortunately most of mailinator's domains are blacklisted

Yep, you'll find that with most disposable email providers, here's a list from 2012 of domains then used.

On my devices, it's Settings -> Data Usage -> [3 dots menu in top-right corner] -> Mobile hotspots.

Got that too, never noticed though  Grin

Personally, I use AFWall+ which allows a much finer degree of control but requires root:

I searched for recycle bin and found that most blog and forums suggested Dumpster

They must of updated it a bit from when I tried it.  Well done for finding one that works for you.

I installed it and deleted one photo from gallery.

Try it with a file deleted from the MicroSD card, (if you have one installed), since KitKat allows files operations on internal storage without too much in the way of problems.

And just as a matter of interest, what version of Android is it running, (Settings->About phone->Android version) ?

I liked some of the apps at f-droid, thanks ewemoa, but is it safe to use apps from it ? Any users of it ?

Yes, F-Droid is fine if you don't want to be dragged into the Play store all the time.

Also I need anti-virus.

No, you don't.

Agree with eleman here, but I do run a firewall mainly ensure apps do not access networks they're not supposed to, eg. VPN, LAN, Roam, Data.  The one I run is of limited use to you as it requires root access.

Don't know if it's specific to my phone, (which is basically the same as the A6000 with a lower screen resolution), but if you go to Settings->Networked apps you can set which apps you've downloaded have access to Mobile Data and/or Wi-Fi.
