And here is the results, on a serious, in-depth article on cloud computing. Try to read it with a straight face.  cheesy

I'm only a few paragraphs in and already it's hilarious! Thanks! Thmbsup

When I talk to executives about my butt, three questions always come up: Why will my butt be a big deal beyond the IT department? What are the main concerns and areas of skepticism, and how valid are they? And how should we get started?

I asked for a special portable edition (no installer needed) which I still have. I could mirror/host/post it if needed.

Did i beat 40hz to post about this?  Wink

This is an RC (Release Candidate) release. Not the official, final, stable release. I'm not sure 40hz would normally post about betas or RCs. smiley

But thanks for posting. Cool news!

Quote from: all of the paragraph
There will be a transition period of two release cycles (12 weeks total) during which unsigned extensions will only generate a warning in Firefox.

After the transition period, it will not be possible to install unsigned extensions in Release or Beta versions of Firefox. There won’t be any preferences or command line options to disable this.

Installation of unsigned extensions will still be possible on Nightly and Developer Edition, as well as special, unbranded builds of Release and Beta that will be available mainly for developers testing their extensions.

I don't want to run an unstable Nightly or a Developer Edition, nor do I want "special" builds just to run some extensions. If I'm going to go for special, unbranded builds, I might as well go for IceWeasel or Pale Moon or Project Spartan.

I got two of these JAM Plus Portable Speakers which can connect to each other for stereo sound and play music via bluetooth.

Not quite the same thing, but they work just fine with my BT devices and sound pretty good, IMO. But I'm no audiophile and I never listen to the radio, so I'm not sure my car even has working speakers.

Hmm, I hope it doesn't go the way of MaxThon with only the few writing extensions:

I was nodding my head in agreement with their reasoning, thinking it would be much like the Google Play Store, until I got to this part:

So, for my own good, you're not even going to allow me to override your decision and install whatever software/extensions I want on my own machine?

How does an open source group even come to a decision like that? How is that open?

36  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: 128GB USB 3.0 Flash price/performance/durability recommendations? on: March 13, 2015, 03:47:34 PM
Edit: Primarily I'm looking to buy online.  Walmart, BestBuy and Tiger Direct exist down here.  But they are a hike and a half from here.

Wait, Tiger Direct is a brick & mortar store? huh I thought it was online only.

Anyway, I can't really help much, except to say that I bought this 128GB HP USB 3.0 thumbdrive (for less than the current listing price) and it seems OK to me. I think I get at least/about 20MB/s write speeds, if not faster. But USB is still pretty slow in general. Large file transfers, such as filling the drive up or making backups, take a long time.

I bought it to use it as an external drive for my WiiU, but the WiiU partitions USB drives using a proprietary format, and something about this particular drive kept losing the formatting details or something. I kept losing all the data on it. Other USB thumbdrives drives I tested in the WiiU (8GB or smaller) didn't have a problem with keeping the data.

But it's been working perfectly--without data loss--when formatted using NTFS or other "standard" (exFat, ext4, etc.) formats.

"LiveCoding" has been a thing for years. Plenty of people stream their development on Twitch.tv while they work on games or other projects. Especially as part of game jams such as Ludum Dare.

Don't know if it's specific to my phone, (which is basically the same as the A6000 with a lower screen resolution), but if you go to Settings->Networked apps you can set which apps you've downloaded have access to Mobile Data and/or Wi-Fi.

On my devices, it's Settings -> Data Usage -> [3 dots menu in top-right corner] -> Mobile hotspots.

Then you can put a checkmark on any SSID that should be considered a mobile hotspot, which will restrict apps from downloading from that SSID in the background. (e.g., no Google Play Store app updates automatically downloading unless you specifically open the Google Play Store)

A friend fooled me with the title of this composition.
What did you think it was about?

Exactly what it is. A bunch of partial truths and feel-goodisms you'd likely find on Buzzfeed or other clickbait websites.
43  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Need help guidance as a beginner of Android world on: March 11, 2015, 10:28:34 PM
Your problem is that you have Android KitKat and under that you're severely limited in where apps can write to the SD card.  You'd either have to keep using the system default file manager, root the device to change the external media write policy, or upgrade to Android Lollipop.
One word of caution about upgrading to Lollipop.  I've been reading some of the Android Central forums, as well as some forums for specific Android apps, and there have been LOTS of complaints about Lollipop, including a number of people reporting that it rendered their tablets or phones useless.  It's true that some people are happy with Lollipop, but there were so many people reporting serious problems that I decided not to upgrade when I had the chance to do so.   When I say Lollipop, I'm referring to Android 5.0, 5.01, and 5.02.  There are reports that 5.1 will soon be available.  Given the reports on 5.0, 5.01, and 5.02, I'm planning to wait to see whether Google finally got it right with 5.1 before I install it.  You might be wise to wait as well.

Lollipop didn't render my tablet useless, but it removed some features (such as silent mode and automatically adjusting brightness) and made other things I access multiple times each day more cumbersome to deal with. The little annoyances with Lollipop added up and after a couple of months I'd had enough, so I reverted back to KitKat.

I want system wide recycle bin. Any suggestion ?

Don't delete anything except when you're using ES File Explorer. (c:

1. Backup and Restore - At least photo, videos and contacts, if not sms and notes etc.

Titanium Backup (requires root).

I always root my device, and this is a very useful tool. But if you can't/don't want to root, you can also try Helium Backup which doesn't require root. I've never used it so I can't vouch for it, but I've used plenty of other apps by Koushik Dutta AKA ClockworkMod and he's a pretty good developer.


2. Undelete or Recycle option - To restore files deleted by mistake.

ES File Manager, as suggested by others.

4. Quick note taking - Simple, may or may not have voice note mode.

Google Keep or Evernote

5. PDF reader - Small just for reading pdf files.

Google Drive, Google Play Books, or I think even ES File Manager has a PDF reader.

6. Calender task and reminder on home screen

Google Calendar (use the widget to show it on your home screen).

Also, take a look at Chronus if your device allows you to customize your lock screen. It's nice to see the clock, the weather, and upcoming calendar items all at once.

47  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Avoid AdBlock Plus for Android! on: March 08, 2015, 01:18:31 PM
I've used AdAway and AdFree in the past, but for some reason I can't get them to block ads anymore, so that's why I installed ABDfA. In fact, I still have AdAway and Adfree installed. Yet nothing seems to block ads on my Nexus 7 2013 so I guess I might as well uninstall it all.

I once had an Android device that was in that state. Finally had to do a reinstall/'factory reset' and then AdAway worked once more.

I remember ad blocking broke when I updated the OS to KitKat. It had something to do with the location of the hosts file changing or something similar. I managed to get it to work again using AdAway in combination with Adfree. But then I updated my tablet to Lollipop and ad blocking stopped working again. Lollipop had too many bugs and annoyances, so I "retrograded" back to KitKat (Cyanogenmod 11) but I still can't get ad blocking to work.

@Deozaan: That is not the default address, unless maybe you use that HTTPEverywhere extension.

It defaults to HTTP.

So sorry to have brought this up. It's legit though.

I still don't get what the big deal is, or why you're freaking out about it. It's pretty obvious that you're not going to have an encrypted connection if you don't use https.

It's a discussion board. It's not your bank account.
49  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Use a unique password for this site on: March 06, 2015, 11:41:37 PM
I have no idea what you're talking about. I see the connection is encrypted when I visit this page:

http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php

Make sure you're visiting the https site, and not just http.

Though, because I'm not using https myself, it is stripping the S from the https when I paste the link... Which I think means it will be there for anyone else who is using https.

I used to never see ads in the browser or before YouTube videos, or in other apps. Now they're everywhere. In apps, in the browser, before YouTube videos. Everywhere.
