Congratulations on your working environment smiley

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...
13  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
14  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.

15  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:

I liked some of the apps at f-droid, [...], but is it safe to use apps from it ?

I don't have an answer to your question, but below is a bit of how I see things.

With F-Droid, IIUC, the idea is that what's there is compiled from source code which you can examine.  As to whether some things haven't been tampered with, I don't know -- e.g. by the folks who are performing the compilation and making the results available.  I don't think the people who are compiling have examined the source code of the various projects in detail to try to assess security aspects (e.g. for design and/or implementation errors).  Deliberate holes in the original source code seem less likely, but it still seems possible.

With the Play Store, AFAIU, what's there has not likely been tampered with since release by the original developer because of the digital signature scheme (though there has been at least one significant case of the scheme not working as expected and being exploited) -- but you don't really know what was in the source in the first place nor what might have snuck in during compilation -- most folks do not have access to the source code for most of the things on the Play Store.

With recent events, I think it's not too unreasonable to be thinking that if there's some place that one can hide something, sooner or later someone's likely to think of hiding things in those harder-to-examine places.  It appears that in many cases it's economical to do so.



On a side note, I had the impression that you are/were interested in developing for Android -- so I thought that F-Droid might provide source code you might examine for studying purposes.

If you aren't already familiar with it, I suggest also checking:

  https://f-droid.org/

AFAIU, almost everything there also has source code available.

For a simple PDF reader, MuPDF -- if you really want to, you can build it from source too smiley

If nothing else, if the hw is good you could do a complete wipe and install and at least have a running Laptop with a clean OS on it.

I'd not be so hasty to do this unless there is a recovery option available (alternatively, clone the existing drive and keep that or the source drive safe somewhere for future reference) -- if the OS that's on there is or "inherits" from an OEM install, there may be OEM-specific files that having access to later may make one's life easier.

I agree that determining the key via the likes of ProduKey as suggested is a good idea.

On a possibly related note, are you familiar with Rosetta Code?
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Best Linux Distro for Windows HDD recovery on: March 02, 2015, 07:44:04 PM
In the last week or so I used SystemRescueCD to pull data off of an HDD -- the contained GNU ddrescue was quite useful.  There are some related utilities ddrutilty (among other things has some nice NTFS-related tools) and ddrescueview which don't appear to be on the ISO, but I was able to fetch them (one had a precompiled binary and the other was easy to build from source) while booted into SystemRescueCD.

It took some studying to learn how to use GNU ddrescue (note: there's another program with a similar purpose and name), but the results so far appear to be that I was able to recover all except one file.



The following things seemed worth considering before getting started:

  • Consider practicing on something you don't care about too much -- and consider doing so before an emergency.
  • Arrange for some place for the logfile(s) to be saved to -- I used some USB memory.
  • Arrange for a device to save GNU ddrescue output (not necessarily logfile) to -- typically one is likely to want something that is larger in capacity than the sum of the partitions one wishes to attempt recovery for.
  • Don't overwrite past logfile on subsequent runs -- work off of a copy.
  • Consider an initial run that doesn't try hard to recover much -- if you decide later you want to wipe the good areas, the logfile for the initial run may present less trouble.
  • If dealing with NTFS, examine ddrutility -- there's a contained tool that may make the pass through an NTFS filesystem faster.
  • Don't attempt individual file recovery off of a fresh result of running GNU ddrescue -- clone first and work off of that.

These are not faults with the documentation, FWIW smiley

I was happy to learn that sometimes even HDDs with trouble can be "mostly wiped" by leveraging an appropriate GNU ddrescue log file and an appropriate invocation of the utility using its fill mode to target "good" areas.

Have you tried the browsers that won't run using a freshly created account?

Hopefully this topic/thread is still of some use to some of us smiley

Started using Chrome recently and what I've collected so far that doesn't appear to be listed include:

  • Android Resource Navigator
  • Android SDK Samples Search
  • Android SDK Search
  • PDF Viewer
  • React Developer Tools
  • The QR Code Extension
  • Vanilla Cookie Manager

Of note is 'The QR Code Extension' - it works offline (so what you want a QR code for doesn't get sent somewhere over the network) and it doesn't require additional permissions like some other QR extensions.
