It sounded quite different in Murray's blog.

They announced AM5 to be released this Summer. Looks like winter now.

TL;DR: Miner coders cripple their public versions so they can mine faster themselves. I doubt that's a Monero-centric thing.

Seems like Bitcoin (and other) mining is artificially crippled so the miner devs make higher profits:

Wordpress.com didn't let you install custom plug-ins last time I checked.
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Wordpress and Hackers on: August 24, 2014, 11:46:35 AM
My rule of thumb here is to use only commonly used plug-ins with a record of security. I have to blindly trust them because checking is too expensive for me.

I usually try to replace plug-ins by simple functions.php snippets around twice a year. Works well. I know it sounds a bit harsh, but if you don't understand PHP, you shouldn't install WordPress. Better use the wordpress.com hosting service.

I haven't donated either and I won't, my yearly donations go to other organizations. I just meant: if you care, donate, if not, ignore those icy people.

The whole thing is not about cold water, it's about donations.

Don't play the fool. Donate instead.

WordPress is known for its random security issues, but so are all larger web projects I know.

"Secure" your WP by renaming your wp-content folder and removing meta info from the log-in. I guess that already helps a lot.
And don't use too many plug-ins without having checked their code.

Not sure if media like the Telegraph should talk about that without any irony.

http://activaid.telgkamp.de has some extension which does that.

I've just stumbled upon 64-bit builds of Emacs 24.4-pretest. Sweet, but my window maximizing elisp code doesn't work anymore.  Sad
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for a time tracking tool that makes me write billable descriptive text on: August 09, 2014, 08:25:52 AM
I use Jiffy on Android.  Cool
Which is a plain "time tracker" though.

I made the experience that tools which nag me are rather disabled than listened to.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Enough with the text editors... let's talk Terminal Emulators! on: August 09, 2014, 08:14:11 AM
OpenBSD/FreeBSD desktops:
I prefer urxvt on *ix systems. Terminator is weird IMO. (But I'll surely try Final Term soon!) "Multi-terminal needs" can easily be solved with tmux.  tongue In the very rare cases I want to use more than one terminal X window, I just press a hotkey and a second one opens. Thank you, awesome wm!

OSX:
This is a hard case. I have to work with OSX in the office. Terminal.app makes me sick. I installed iTerm2 as it has a nicer handling but it sometimes freezes when my ssh is connected too long. Rather annoying. I plan to replace iTerm2 by the Emacs shell next week (M-x shell) as I use Emacs with TRAMP for most "real" working tasks anyway.



Windows:
Easy. ConEmu with a PyCmd interpreter. Beat that.

Monkey see, monkey do?

After all, Wikipedia now ignores the monkey's copyright by just declaring the photo "Public Domain" without her consent. The monkey should sue them.

Bittorrent is a hype. I'm slightly angered with aversion about hypes. I never was into pop culture.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Bleep… Bittorrent unveils serverless & encrypted chat client on: August 04, 2014, 10:25:39 AM
Oh wow, BitTorrent notices that decentralized P2P is the way to go. We eMule'rs yawn silently.

Calendarscope sounds like another application with a dozen possible replacements. What is its special ability?

How are you getting an Android version of Palemoon? I can't find it on the Google Play Store, nor can I find a download for it on the Palemoon website.

Just don't have the gutz to go all the way with Linux.

Nor do all the good people.

i like Evernote (don't work with Linux)

There's Everpad on Linux (among a couple of other Evernote API clients, some of them CLI-only).
I tried Geeknote once. Wonderful.

Must-read of the year:

Everything is branded. Even people. People are “personal brands”, despite the fact that, by and large, you can’t figure out what most of them are actually even good for. They just exist to be snarky and post selfies and demand that you buy something, anything, with their picture on it.

Windows 7 isn't fast on a Nexus 7?

A complete rewrite of a complex application is not an easy task.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ad Muncher 5 will be free on: August 03, 2014, 05:47:28 AM
AdGuard 5.9 blocks Firefox add-on downloads (and Twitter).  huh

edit: seems to be fixed in 5.10 beta. Or it was my fault initially.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ad Muncher 5 will be free on: August 03, 2014, 04:36:36 AM
Because they are a company and need to set up things first.
