That is what I am using (right now, anyway), but I feel like I am using a trial version of something, what with all the buttons for Plus features and constant reminders about how you should upgrade :/
2  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / uTorrent alternatives? on: February 22, 2012, 11:34:11 PM
After uTorrent launched their Plus program, the entire UI is getting messier and messier, and it seems that they just want to push Plus on to you at every opportunity. As such, I have decided to look for something else. Anyone here has got a great uTorrent alternative?

I don't need any plugins or whizz-bang features; anything that is lightweight and downloads torrents is fine. I have found qBittorrent, which looks like what I want, but I was wondering if you guys have anything else that you may be using.

Seeing there's already a thread about giving away games, I may as well hijack this one  tongue

Does anybody want a copy of Frozen Sypnase?

It's a turn-based strategy game where the turns happen at the same time. Makes it quite a bit harder as you have to predict what your enemy does for each turn.

EDIT: Game given away already! Thanks. smiley

Here's a link to a page that generates syntactically valid credit card numbers: http://www.darkcoding.net/credit-card-numbers/

Of course, they can't actually be used, these are probably for testing your own e-commerce script or something like that.

I have always like these infographics done by Jess. Really helps to get the point across for complicated subjects.

There are a few more he's done here: http://infographics.byjess.net/.

7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the Windows Helvetica equivalent (original Helvetica from a Mac) on: March 23, 2011, 11:02:19 PM
Not really sure what you are asking, so I am going to answer the question two times.

Helvetica equivalent on Windows:
Arial or MS Sans Serif. They are so alike that unless you stare at them properly there's no difference.

Which of the many fonts from the Helvetica family does the Mac consider to be "Helvetica":
Based on me eyeballing my iPhone, its should either be Helvetica Roman or Helvetica Neue Roman.

Hope that answers the question.

EDIT: If you are using Helvetica fonts on Windows, do note that you have to buy them from Linotype if you don't want to run afoul of any licensing issues.

I might actually buy it if I understood the page. Is it saying it costs 5 eur or 4 eur?

@Renegade: I have the flashes actually, but they are not likely to be in a working condition.

@Ath: It's not a small house actually, it's actually the storeroom that is crowded. Due to the diligence of a (deceased) relative, it is absolutely packed to the brim with things from years gone by. Among them are charcoal irons, old cigarette cases and well, this. They are still trying to clear it up.

@Beth UK: Thanks a lot! I really hope you find them.

I will probably keep it for collection since film is so difficult to find, but I will try to shoot 1 roll just for fun.

Thanks to all of you for the help! Thmbsup

Hello! I know this is probably not the best forum to post this, but you people seem better at finding stuff on the net then I am, and maybe some of you will know personally what this thing is.

So I went on my semi-annual trip to visit my relatives in Indonesia, and one of them passed me this, thinking I might be interested in it and also because they were clearing space.

[attachthumb=1]
[attachthumb=2]

Now I tried to look for information about the Fujica on the net, but all I could find about it was people selling it. (Probably not a good sign.)

I would like to ask all of you to tell me anything you people know or can find out about this camera (cause I am interested in using it).

What I would really like to know:
Does it take colour or b&w?
Does it take batteries?
What film does it take?
Where would I get the film?

Thanks to of all of you in advance for the help!

Am I wrong here or is everyone missing the one point that can't be worked around.  While the download may not be determined due to encryption, and the source may not be trackable due to anonymizers, to make the connection in the first place, the router assigns (albit temporarily in the case of DHCP) the IP address to a MAC address.  This guarantees that the routing goes to the right place (assuming the IP address doesn't point to more than one address, but that is another issue that shows immediately to at least one person with that address).  Therefore, with even the most basic logging, all sources, even wireless, has access to the MAC address of that interface.

THEORETICAL DISCUSSION POINT HERE - MAY OR MAY NOT BE FEASIBLE IN REALITY!

Once you have the MAC address, you can then follow MAC address connections and if you use wireless in your house regularly, you can determine where that MAC address connects most of the time.  Even if not, you can narrow it to a specific location and frequent any location that seems to show a regular connection to the hotspot.  Once you see that connection made, you found the person.

/THEORY

Is this time consuming - absolutely.  Will it happen?  Probably not.  Is it possible in reality?  This I do not know, as you would essentially have to gain access to each hotspot and search the history to track the MAC Address.  This would require a HUGE amount of resources and probably a ton of cooperation that may or may not be available.  Would someone attempt this for an illegal torrent, doubt it.  For National Security, Weapons trafficking, or espionage?  Not so doubtful.  The real question here is can it happen vs. how likely is it to happen.

Unfortunately, MAC addresses are also very easily spoofed. I can only assume anyone doing espionage or anything of that sort would have covered that weak spot. There are probably easier ways to track a person down then the method you describe. In theory, this would be workable, but practically it will just take too much time.

This thread just reminds me of just how kind and patient the whole of the DonationCoder community is: I can't imagine how other forums might react to this guy.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: IP address on public network on: June 16, 2010, 05:37:50 AM
Actually, I think that the more traffic there is on TOR, the better it is. More nodes means higher reliability and faster, while more traffic means more noise to obscure your signal. So no matter what people are using it for, the fact that they are using it makes it better.

Or do you mean that ISPs might decide to murder the baby when they throw out the bath water by banning TOR traffic altogether and blame it on file sharing?

No, the problem is that Tor relies on its users to route traffic through the network, and if you use BitTorrent over it, you inevitably hog everyone's bandwidth and make things slower for everyone. Also, I think that ISPs can't actually ban Tor because it uses encryption, and also because it does not really have a predictable traffic pattern (unlike BitTorrent).

I used to use MusicBrainz Tagger, but I have since switched foobar2000 with foo_discogs (honestly, it's an awesome plugin).

Here's another good link for info about lucid dreaming: Lucid Dreaming @ Wikibooks

Man why do you people have so much more interesting dreams than me? The only slightly interesting ones involved me dreaming that I woke up and went on my daily routine.

Dreams = life for me I suppose. sigh~

Well, mass storage access rates ain't going to sell more processors, since in a lot of people's minds, GHz is directly proportional to speed.

Isn't this sort of thing pretty prevalent already?
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: software for removing greenscreen/inserting any background on: January 29, 2009, 05:44:25 AM
It should be #00FF00, but it really depends on how good your lighting is. That is why most video editors that do that lets you pick the colour from the video itself. They also have a similarity setting in case of minor inconsistencies in the lighting. I have no idea if this applies to images, but it should be similar.

Note: You can also use blue (#0000FF).

I am surprised nobody mentioned Media Player Classic yet. It's small and light, and has not b0rked at me despite the long time for which it hasn't updated.

Well, can someone tell me the server name? I am still very confused as to what it is.
