1  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: AdGuard Premium Lifetime on sale at StackSocial.com on: May 05, 2015, 03:21:45 AM
Hmm, my beta period will last some more days. Guess they'll just extend beta subscriptions for regular testers for free.
2  Other Software / Developer's Corner / libcheck.py: Check JS library updates in Python on: April 29, 2015, 05:17:00 AM
This is a project by me. It's not "requested" by anyone but me, it's not a project large enough for the showroom, but maybe someone can use it.

I work in a small IT company, currently being involved in finishing a better Transifex alternative. As I make use of a number of JavaScript libraries, I regularly lose track of updated versions. So I made this script which does it for me.

libcheck.py on GitHub

This is my first Python script, I have a couple of things on my personal TODO list. While I work on it, I gladly accept new definition files. Mine are not perfect.

If their refreshed Thunderbird stops crashing if you do weird things with it (like actually using it...), it might be an improvement. "Free" and good Windows IMAP clients are rare. (But then again, my €30 are already reserved for the next The Bat! upgrade.)

Hmm, 2016 looks not very different from 2012 and somewhat "uncatchy" (by means of boring). I like that the beta ends soon, this could mean that the release will follow quickly. I pity the loss of eM Client though. Thunderbird is bugware.
5  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Pale Moon browser now available on Android on: April 21, 2015, 03:05:31 AM
Most mobile Android browsers lack a compression proxy feature. Opera, Chrome, that's it. Sad

He really needs new customers, hm?

Why did Sony not respond then?
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Sony's Pirates on: April 18, 2015, 08:15:10 PM
Does anyone of you remember Sony, the large company which came over to the dark side when they spread rootkits on their audio-CDs?
Sony has been in the press for a while, proposing to kick people who pirate their products off the internet entirely.

Now guess what.

9  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Best programming language to pick up for applications? on: April 01, 2015, 04:10:39 AM
I suggest C# if you're looking for Windows-specific GUI applications, C++ for everything else.

(Python if you're brave. Not suitable for low-level development IMO, but nice design.)
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: mp3 sharing? on: March 24, 2015, 03:45:41 AM
There's xrecode II for that. That said, you can't convert lossy to lossless.
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: mp3 sharing? on: March 19, 2015, 04:01:40 AM
You can use P2P for it too. smiley
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Avoid AdBlock Plus for Android! on: March 05, 2015, 01:26:31 AM
I've been using AdGuard (also on Android) for a while which only consumed 103 megabytes of traffic during the past 30 days. I guess it's not a technical issue with ad blockers in general then.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google, designing the font of the future on: February 07, 2015, 09:03:13 AM
Fonts do matter, but it seems that there are different opinions about what's readable and what's not.
(Especially as a programmer, it's hard to find the perfect font. Consolas? Source Pro? ...)

I prefer Droid Sans to Roboto. Not sure why.
14  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Softmaker Office: **90%+** Discount!!!! Offer Expires Feb5 6pm(?) EST on: February 05, 2015, 05:32:17 AM
I'll wait for SoftMaker's 2015 version.  smiley
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: January 12, 2015, 03:16:59 AM
Still using grepWin for text files. Everything else is sorted in folders where I can find it myself.  tongue
16  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: AdGuard: the better Ad Muncher? on: January 09, 2015, 09:37:36 AM
Depends. AdGuard's "extras" like WOT and malware scans need to exchange a lot of data; so does the automatic regional filter list update.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Farewell, Dr. Dobbs on: December 17, 2014, 03:27:18 AM
Ah, Dr. Dobb's. While I - as a German - never actually got my hands on even one of those magazines, I surely know its reputation. A tragic loss for everyone.
18  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Wordfence Hacked on: December 15, 2014, 03:27:59 AM
Now this is a good starting point to finally replace WordPress by a static blog generator.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: which phone? on: December 12, 2014, 03:56:32 AM
Windows Phone is ok, it just has a horrible lack of third-party apps.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Pirate Bay and EZTV down on: December 11, 2014, 09:49:45 AM
Pirate Bye.  Cool

I wonder how "trackers" (or Magnet portals or what they're called today) managed to stay around for so long. A better alternative not requiring any web server (Kad2) is available for years.

SoftMaker Office > LibreSomething.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: windows services manager. such a thing? on: November 21, 2014, 03:01:03 AM
I'm confident NirSoft has such a tool.
23  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Experimenting with Other Programming Languages on: November 13, 2014, 04:30:04 AM
Why not LISP?

I'm beginning to experiment with C#, just to see how it has evolved during the past few years. I wonder if it would make sense to reimplement "my" C++ applications.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Mailpile [Beta] on: November 13, 2014, 04:21:25 AM
The Bat! is a desktop client, so no, they're not.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Mailpile [Beta] on: November 12, 2014, 05:11:23 AM
Mailpile is not interesting until I can access it from The Bat!.
