Looks like it's out:

http://blog.macrium.com/2015/02/its-finally-here/

Update: Looks like I was throwing money out the window buying the v5 Professional edition, which just upgraded to the standard v6 Home edition Sad.

Seems like they have "workstation" where Pro would be.  It's odd.  I would have thought they would upgrade on a tier basis.  Have you tried sending a note?  Right now with the new release they may want good word of mouth.  They might upgrade you if you explain why you feel vexed at the upgrade.  Might be worth a shot.

Edit: looking at the comparison chart the only difference I see from standard to workstation is that standard has support limited to one year.

While you're still shopping, look at Digital Ocean. It could fit the bill.

I'm into these guys for 3 months at this point.  I hope it works out.  They sent me an email with temp url etc that gets a 404.  I hope it's not a harbinger of doom.  My first support ticket is already on the way.  smiley

I have to scout around and find a free WiFi that doesn't block ftp for when I upload.  Once the bugs are ironed out maybe I'll do one of those boilerplate template web designers.  I tried one out that actually didn't look too bad for $50.  The main gripe I have is that most of the ones I looked at convert your text to an image.  Paragraphs don't flow.  Kind of defeats the purpose of using a markup language.

We'll see how it goes.  smiley

I use tumblr.com with my own domain name and host my downloads on http://my.cl.ly or DropBox

http://vdsfreak.com

Thanks for the info.  smiley

Good luck with your decision.

If it falls through at some point, I would recommend ASmallOrange (ASO)
Very good reputation for many years - I've had an account with them for a very long time now. Support levels & uptime both very high.

Thanks.  I'll keep it in mind.

Another option is HawkHost, they have a plan that fits the budget and bandwidth, been with them many years and happy. About software downloads, I think they allow it but just in case http://www.hawkhost.com/Legal

I went with HH.  I found a coupon code online that sliced 25% off.  I got the basic account for about $3/month.  3 GB is more than enough.  When I was on Jaguar I think I used less than 1/4 GB for all my files.  smiley

I need to wait for stuff to propagate.  The WiFi here seems to intermittently block ftp upload but I should be able to get the stuff up there eventually.  smiley

OK so I bought a domain name.  I had a good reliable Web Hosting on JaguarPC but instead of continuing to discount their prices they seem to be headed upward.  I don't really want to spend $9+/mo just to give away software.  But I want a commercial account to ensure I have control.

Anyone know of Web Hosting for $4 or $5 a month?  I don't need the shopping cart and all the rest.  Just unlimited download bandwidth, an included email account for support, and the ability to post a donate button. I don't see a need for more than 3 pages and I can squeeze it all into a one page list if necessary.  I guess the main idea is I don't want to kill myself with bells, whistles and wallpaper just to give stuff away.  I'll probably use a list generator with short descriptions for each utility.

An outfit known for up time and no shenanigans would be great.  smiley

Speaking of using air for cleaning I must have spent a dozen hours online trying to find a mechanical way of doing it.  The perfect solution for me would have been a tiny bellows with a pistol grip so it could be operated with one hand.  Of course as soon as I search on the term "bellows" all I find are stupid decorative bellows like you hang on a fireplace grate.

I ended up getting a cheap plastic bicycle pump type thing about 6" long from China.  It was great for blowing dust off the keyboard.  The main flaw was the two handed operation.

This seems to be an area where nobody wants to produce a mechanical solution since if made well repeat sales are unlikely.  I can see requiring "clean air" if you are blowing into open sockets.  But for just blowing the dust out of the box or off the keys it seems a bit pricey.
59  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Win7 update loop on: February 14, 2015, 11:36:30 AM
I set mine to never check for updates.  I just looked by pressing Winkey Q and typing Updates in settings.  It told me I last checked for updates on 12/10/2013.

One thing I noticed.  Getting off that screen is not very intuitive.  After fumbling around Alt Tab did the trick.  I'm not sure if it's because I have Classic Shell installed.

I tried reading through updates in case I needed any and selecting individual ones to install.  I found myself wasting half a day just on that.  So I turned it off altogether.  I can't be doing that every Tuesday.

In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, notify:' I put 'DOCTOR.' [/li][/list]

I actually put "ambulance" on a couple of applications.  They failed to see the humor.  smiley

So, if I didn't give any money to them, what makes you think I'd give any to you?'

Heh heh.  That's a classic punch line.   Thmbsup

Also there seems to be hints that Aero may make a comeback.  I get the feeling they would like to see people request it or "vote" for it via feedback.

Fixed that for you. (c:

I read a few reviews. I didn't see anything noteworthy. What am I missing?

What struck me is the "love it or hate it" nature of them.  As noted by one of the reviewers.  Looking at the oicture I was going to joke it makes a perfect postcard until I saw that's what it was.  For hard core tourists it might be cool once enhanced and debugged.

Looks like it might outweigh my Toshiba Laptop though.

Thanks for trying the program out.
Thanks for providing it.  smiley

You are most welcome.  smiley

By the way if you have an idea for a more natural way of using it I would be interested.  I'm torn between the detection being automatic as it is now, since it is supposed to be to recover from accidental closure of a program, and the less resource intensive method of the user hotkeying the program with the focus into what would be in effect, a launch bar.

I took a look at the way Skrommel coded a similar program and I could see the difficulty involved in trying to get the info as the program is closing, say by clicking on the 'x'.  That's undoubtedly why he hid the window and set a timer to kill it if not overridden in 60 seconds.

The hotkey to add to a launchbar would be less resource intensive but would also lose the "accidental recovery" aspect.  Or perhaps it should be 2 modes and the user can select to use one or both.

I'm open to ideas.  What I can do is fairly limited.  But a different perspective is often enlightening.  smiley

It could also produce some interesting instances of road rage.  Someone cuts off the car.

Hay, can we get a robotic arm to automatically extend a middle finger any time the ABS is tripped for longer than 700ms??

I was thinking more along the lines of Phasers. If I'm in a good mood I just might mess up his tinted glass with a low power volley(equivalent of set to stun.)  But otherwise a destruct power setting may be in order.  This has the benefit the auto will be totally vaporized and I won't have to change lanes to "pass" the dude. Wink

I think we just might be on to something!

Not only the badge number verified.  Since it's a smart phone a picture of the cop should automatically download if it reports the badge number is genuine for that area/jurisdiction etc..

67  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Britain gives go-ahead to test driverless cars on roads on: February 11, 2015, 11:45:37 AM
Probably no worse or more risky than our current practice of allowing brain-dead humans to operate a motor vehicle. At least if the US driving scene is anything to go by.  Wink

It could also produce some interesting instances of road rage.  Someone cuts off the car.  The car runs the offender off the road in retaliation.  Do they in-car-sir-ate the automaton?  The vehicle has to serve 5 years or 50,000 miles.. whichever comes first.
68  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: License, registration, and insurance...or your cell phone on: February 11, 2015, 11:40:28 AM
Now what I want to see - for real public safety - is a mobile phone app that will scan and validate the cop's fingerprint (there are a lot of phony LEO cases in the news these days) to pass/fail prove they are indeed 'Duly Authorized' to be stopping people in the first place.

Maybe they should have "smart badges" that squawk the cop's badge number. By the time you can check the fingerprint he's close enough to grab you.  Like, you hit a broadcast button on your phone and the cop's badge texts you the badge number which you can Google before you pull over.

One Step Beyond

My favorite episode of OSB was the one where John Newland had a researcher who was investigating the effects of a special mushroom found in the rain forest.  The guy gives Newland a mushroom and hits him with a strobe light and if I remember rightly, a hypnotic wheel.  You could tell Newland was really flying high.  I guess the TV networks weren't uptight about it because they didn't know what it was back then.  And the researcher likely had a PHD.  smiley

I also did the Twilight Zone

I thought both Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents packed more punch in the 1/2 hour format.  Hitchcock is the only show I can think of where I actually want to watch the original commercials when watching the show.  He often had clever comments that wouldn't make sense without them.

It's working—I'm broken. Sorry, wasn't using it right.  embarassed

smiley

I was thinking of adding exclusion lists as I mentioned, with perhaps a manual override.  So you could hotkey click on a program to force it into the button list.  I thought also it might be cool to be able to edit the working directory and args fields.

The other thing that bothers me is as I have it now you launch one thing and it closes.  That's because all the stuff is picked up during the Gui creation.  It should be able to stay open like a launch bar.  But if I do that I think I may want to make it smaller.  Maybe 24 pixel buttons.  Just kicking ideas around.  But since it works pretty well I should just put this one out for now.

I have to see what I want to do for a permanent web hosting solution.
But all that's in the future.  For now I can just submit it to Softpedia.  smiley

Thanks for trying the program out.   Thmbsup

I just tested out the x64 version on Windows 7 Professional. It does detect both 32 and 64 bit programs, and there were no blank buttons between the others. So it was a success on my machine.  Thmbsup

Thank you very much for posting your findings.   smiley
73  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful on: February 09, 2015, 02:08:24 PM

Copy Urls Expert


I just tried this one.  It's great for making a file of Urls that will work with BrowserBunch.  Much neater than the keyboard macro I wrote.  I can create the Url set file in Firefox or CometBird, then use BrowserBunch if I should want to open it in Opera or Chromium.   Thmbsup
74  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Url Pack 1.7.0.0 on: February 09, 2015, 08:01:39 AM
The funny thing is I didn't try it out for the features.  But because it was another 32 bit FF derivative.  I wanted to see if I could get a fast FF that would scroll easily with HW accel. enabled.  So far it's working fine except for sites giving the "we don't support FF 11 anymore so upgrade" msg.  smiley

Maybe I'll try Cyberfox 32 bit.


I haven't heard of Cyberfox.

I'll try to look into it.



I've been running Cyberfox 64 bit.  It keeps up to date with the FF current version.  The only real issue so far is the scrolling hangs unless you untick "use hw accel." in Options.

On CometBird I did find a user agent AddOn that fakes out Outlook.  Only thing is I have to set it every time it opens.  It won't remember to use Firefox 35.  So either way I have to do extra clicks.  Sad

Edit:  I got Outlook and Gmail to quit complaining using about:config
Add string
general.useragent.override

and set it to a user agent string.  I'm using
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0

for FF 35.0 in Windows.  I'm assuming NT 6.3 means Windows 8
The string I got both "35.0"s were  "36.0" but I changed 'em to "35.0"

Seems to work so far.  The advantage is it remembers it on restart.


75  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Browser Hijackers on: February 09, 2015, 07:32:24 AM
One thing you may try to get more details is to use MozBackup or some other means of backing up a Firefox, then approve the AddOn install.  That should at least give some kind of name to search on.  I'm not sure how much damage a malicious FF AddOn can do so take suggestion with a grain of salt.  smiley
