From the way that they're marketing it, and the 'interview' process and the reasoning behind that, I don't know if it will get into the hands of someone that would do that.

Looking at:

somehow I'm getting the feeling one can be obtained in a fairly straight-forward manner.  May be things have changed?  The price seems to have dropped a fair bit smiley



FWIW, I came across that link via:

where I saw the following:

FWIW, I failed to find uBlock Origin via searching the chrome web store (though I read claims to the contrary in a few places) -- there was a link that worked mentioned in the following though:

I don't think it has been mentioned here, but came across the following today regarding an extension called "Webpage Screenshot":

6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Lists of "Rogue Security Software"? on: April 05, 2015, 04:56:57 PM
Came across this:

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rogue_security_software

Wikipedia currently has the following definition for "Rogue Security Software":

Quote
a rogue (a form of Internet fraud using computer malware) that deceives or misleads users into paying money for fake or simulated removal of malware (so is a form of ransomware) — or it claims to get rid of, but instead introduces malware to the computer.

Not sure how up-to-date the list is.

Found some other lists that seemed clearly out-of-date by a year or more.



Apart from asking around, I guess if one is considering something for installation and it's small enough jotti, virustotal, and the like are likely to give useful feedback about the candidate in question.

He he.

How many years 'til embedding of devices within one's body is widespread?

Although raw device access seems like it might work, I was thinking one might boot some live iso image in VirtualBox (or equivalent), create an ext4 fs image via the booted virtual environment, copy/share the resulting image to the host OS and use the likes of dd [1] to write the result to an SD card.

Booting up another machine might be simpler and quicker ofc -- but if one really didn't want to reboot... Wink



[1] IIRC, there are various implementations of dd for Mac OS X, Windows, etc.  But I take it you're quite aware of that sort of thing.

ArkOS have stated they'll update their distro to use the RasPi2 when they get their hands on it.

Hadn't heard of that -- looks pretty interesting!  Thanks for sharing.

Installation was slightly annoying, though, since there's no images available. I pondered whether I should accept running the root filesystem as vfat (since that's what I could create from my work macbook) - but ended up transferring a Ubuntu ISO to an usb pendrive, boot my old laptop from that, and get an ext4 root fs.

Thanks for reporting back on your success smiley

Perhaps your work-around for getting an ext4 root fs is less trouble than trying to achieve the same end with something like VirtualBox (possibly with its extension pack).

Perhaps folks have seen it already, but came across "Pathfinding for Tower Defense" today.

Found the interactive maps to be of interest.

If this is a major problem i can work on attempting to fix it. But for now it kinda works with chrome tongue

So far, for my case I think it's fine the way it is.

Thanks!

Very interesting -- have you tested with cutting specific portions of web pages in web browsers?

Ah, I see your docs mention issues with Chrome.

Very interesting link -- thanks for sharing that!

Depending on precise feature set, a bit of this may be shoe-hornable in to subtitle formats.

IIUC, the new kid on the block is WebVTT -- supposedly supported in a variety of browsers:

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebVTT#Compatibility

Apparently at least version 2.2.0 of VLC supports it too.

I mentioned browsers because IIUC the used components are often reusable for apps -- indeed, it's fairly straight-forward to make a simple video player now.

But to answer the original question, IIUC, there is no widely accepted way to do bookmarks for videos.

It does seem less likely, but perhaps after a certain amount of time...

On a related note, below is a thread with more detailed discussion including mention of alternative devices:

Very interesting device, thanks for sharing.

Interesting to see if anyone manages to "extend" or "modify" the system that ships with it...
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Keyboard Shortcut for "Hamburger Menu" in Firefox? on: March 14, 2015, 03:01:34 AM
I'm using NixOS.

If the compilation experience is anything like Firefox, I'm not sure I want to take on having to do that every time there's an update smiley
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Keyboard Shortcut for "Hamburger Menu" in Firefox? on: March 13, 2015, 09:19:52 PM
Thanks for the various ideas smiley

I wasn't a fan of the UI redesign, but I thought I'd give the new UI a chance for a while.

One aspect I like about it is that I can customize what shows up in "the menu".

I had tried placing the search bar inside the menu and accessing it via Ctrl+K, but I haven't figured out how to access the other items using only the keyboard.  Without being able to get to and navigate within the new menu using only the keyboard, it's not nearly as useful as it could be for me.

I haven't taken the Classic Theme Restorer plunge yet -- do you know if it requires a lot of tweaking?  When I installed it and took a look at the options I was overwhelmed smiley

I'm not using Windows much recently and Palemoon doesn't appear to be available for the *NIX I'm using so that doesn't appear to be an option for me ATM.

25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Keyboard Shortcut for "Hamburger Menu" in Firefox? on: March 13, 2015, 12:15:42 AM
Not having much luck finding a keyboard shortcut for the "Hamburger Menu" (aka PanelUI-button) in Firefox.

In Chromium, Alt+F, Alt+E, and F10 followed by space all seem to work.

Anyone know a keyboard shortcut for Firefox?  Or possibly how one might be assigned?



Sadly no good answers here:
