So very sorry. When you've had a family member for so long, it is very hard to give her up. A good cat, like a good man, never lives long enough.

Speaking of command line.. do you (or anyone reading) know of a utility similar to Windows Run-Command?

Do you mean something like 4dos?  I never used it but it sounded like it could be good stuff, many people raved about it for years. Looks like it has gone freeware, although I haven't dug into the site.  I'm sure there are other DCers who can comment on it.

Or can you be more specific about what you have in mind?

You could make the file "hidden" which would either gray it out or hide it, depending on your setting for showing hidden files.

Or you could compress it, which would color the entry blue in standard file mangler (er- manager, I meant).

You could try to pull the relevant "responsible" entities by IP and/or domain and send a report to the abuse address, but my experience is that nothing will happen. So it really depends on how valuable you rate your time and how annoyed you get.

And that they don't have any idea that they are doing it?

Entirely possible, either through an infection on the attacker's box or through trying out a new malware construction set and turning it loose.

Why would anyone even *want* to try to hack my site that I barely update?
To insert malware-installation code in the site, of course.

Could this not be accomplished using a virtual machine?
Virtual machine is definitely the way to go. I used a VM to document how to build an NT4 domain controller for a remote location that had no real techs; once it was up I could connect and do the rest of what was needed, but they had to get the DC part right during the build.

Ya know, not having followed the comics for a number of years, I was surprised to read the Wikipedia entry for Groot. Quite an accomplished being.

Sending positive vibes!

Also I can recommend I.C.T. - Ice Cream Therapy.  Wink   One of our Greyhounds found herself in another dog's argument <sigh- stuff always happened to her>, and ended up with a number of stitches and associated drains (I called her the Borg Dog). We needed to distract her while we massaged some of the muscle tissue to keep it supple and drained, so we got her on the couch with a bowl of ice cream and fed her tidbits as she got a massage. Of course the other dogs lined up too, but what surprised us was one of our cats, Gracie, also climbed onto the couch arm and patiently waited for her turn. With a little soft ice cream in a spoon, she gently lapped lapped lapped it up, like everyone else in the family. (Well, the dogs tended not to gently lap it up...)

So if dietary concerns aren't an issue, try a little soft vanilla. I can envision from the wonderful picture how careful she will be.  Thmbsup

I expect that option fakes your installation into pretending it is one of these... does it say support will extend to January or to April?

Two Windows XP Embedded products will lose extended support in 2016, while two others face 2019 end-of-life dates, according to the post:

"Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 3 (SP3). This is the original toolkit and componentized version of Windows XP. It was originally released in 2002, and Extended Support will end on Jan. 12, 2016."
"Windows Embedded for Point of Service SP3. This product is for use in Point of Sale devices. It's built from Windows XP Embedded. It was originally released in 2005, and Extended Support will end on April 12, 2016."
"Windows Embedded Standard 2009. This product is an updated release of the toolkit and componentized version of Windows XP. It was originally released in 2008; and Extended Support will end on Jan. 8, 2019."
"Windows Embedded POSReady 2009. This product for point-of-sale devices reflects the updates available in Windows Embedded Standard 2009. It was originally released in 2009, and extended support will end on April 9, 2019."

Then again, mobile devices could still use more of just about everything, as it's harder to fit the more powerful things inside the smaller cases and also deal with heat/battery issues.
Bingo. I think battery and mobile device power technology is begging for "an exponential" to ride for awhile.  Where's Nikola Tesla when you really need him??

That would be this BBC special report I believe.  Thmbsup

My Dad had a copy of Hortus 2nd that he used religiously, and which is now in my library. It is far from new, although of course the information is still accurate.

That said it has been eclipsed by newer editions that are more up to date, such as Hortus Third (from 1976). It may not be something for now, but if his interest continues (and he is in North America  tongue) then you might consider it later.  (Warning, it is as expensive as a college textbook... ohmy)
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Avast is vulnerable? on: July 10, 2014, 07:54:55 PM
I also have Avast! free. I have also noticed some significant deterioration in my PC's performance over the last couple of months, and last week I also had a message from Win7 saying my antivirus is not working, even though Avast was saying everything is fine...
Just for comparison, I switched over to Avast! Free for A/V and ditched MSE. I have not noticed any slowdown, slowness in email, etc. I also refuse to get any of the "Internet Security" editions of anything so maybe that is a prevention. :-)

I also get a message about A/V not working, but that is limited to when the engine is updating. If you don't get notification, maybe is the Silent Gaming mode enabled?

The two biggest threats to this country's way of life are a false sense of helplessness on the part of the general public - and its silence.

True. But I think the silence is 50% ignorance and 50% fear... 50 years later there are ever so many more options available for responding to complainers...

don't you need spaces between the = chars and the parameter? (like "reset= 120")?  i seem to remember that.
