Not sure if the comment below this one was being ironic or not - either way it's brilliant:

Reminds me of the old saying:

Quote from: Youtube Video
In the city of Phetchaburi in Thailand, a dog discovered the fish out of the water and unconscious on the pavement. It will try not to let them die by spraying water with its snout. Besides the fish are few puddles. The dog will then sprinkle the fish, as if he wished they would not die. Touching!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HFodb9Ezyw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HFodb9Ezyw</a>
Holy cow that dog+fish video blew my mind.  Amazing.  That has to be one of the most remarkable videos in this long thread.
What an incredible dog.

And I can't help but notice the humans are laughing in the background while the dog seems genuinely concerned and troubled.

Occam's Razor:

The dog sniffed the dead fish (touching his nose to the fish) which was so putrescently odiferous that he was trying to scrub his nose clean on the wet pavement.

The problem is that if I'm going to use the Facebook messaging system, the only thing I want to use it for is essentially as an IM client. I don't want it accessing my contacts or my camera or my microphone or my location or anything else.

The very act of granting it permission to do those things means that it can at any time access those functionalities of your device. And if you trust the app to only do it when you explicitly give it permission to (e.g., only access the camera/gallery when you're taking/attaching a photo to your IM) then great! Use it. But IMO, Facebook has already demonstrated time and again that they cannot be trusted. They will abuse these permissions, they will take every advantage they can to collect as much information about you as possible.

If you pursue it, please keep us in the loop. I'd sure like to know what kind of company Monoprice really is...... Angry

I won't be pursuing it. Thinking on it, I actually ordered the cables about a year ago but didn't open them right away. When I finally did open them and start using the long thing ones, it only took maybe 4-6 weeks for the wires to get exposed. But as I said, the cables still work perfectly.

I think if I order more and experience the same issue, then I might pursue it with those ones.

But anyway, I didn't mean to derail the topic. I still turn primarily to Monoprice when it comes to buying cables. Especially things like HDMI cables. (c:

I recently-ish bought some of the USB -> USB Micro cables from MonoPrice.  I wanted nice, long 6' cables so it could reach from the outlets, and it turns out that my tablet's case is too snug around the USB connector for the "fat" ones to plug in while the case is on. So I had to get the more expensive, thin ones.

After a few weeks of using it to charge my phone and/or tablet the internal wires are poking out near the connection. )c:

The cable still works fine, but I have to say I was disappointed at paying extra and having it falling apart so quickly. This is really my only complaint I have about MonoPrice.

Apparently Tox beat Bleep to the party:

Quote from: https://tox.im/
A New Kind of Instant Messaging
With the rise of government monitoring programs, Tox provides an easy to use application that allows you to connect with friends and family without anyone else listening in. While other big-name services require you to pay for features, Tox is totally free, and comes without advertising.

About Tox
Nowadays, every government seems to be interested in what we're saying online. Tox is built on a "privacy goes first" agenda, and we make no compromises. Your safety is our top priority, and there isn't anything in the world that will change that.

Instant messaging, video conferencing, and more

And when they say "totally free" they mean open source, too!

They have downloads available for multiple operating systems, including Windows, OSX, Linux, and Android!

As someone who is turned off by LoL because of all the ways they can get money from you, I'm surprised people are complaining that they don't do it enough.

I'd really rather just buy a game once, and get all of it forever. I don't want to be nickeled and dimed. I don't want to subscribe for the privilege to play. I just want to "own" the game I buy, so I can play it any time, anywhere, anyhow.

lol indeed.. You're right, thats really stupid!  Angry

This post was originally made 4 years ago. LoL has changed a lot in that time. They probably allow folks outside of the USA and Europe to play their game now.

Hi, korbs, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

can you help me locate 'Always on top' option??

Trout doesn't have an in-built always-on-top feature.  However, there are many freeware programs out there that allow you set AoT for any window.

The minibar does. Just right-click the minibar and set "Always on top"

Twitch.tv will do this, too. I'm not sure if it mutes the livestream, but it will mute the recording. Even if it's your own! You're not allowed to listen to the audio on your own recording if they match it to some copyrighted content.

Ludum Dare 30 is coming up fast! It will begin in just under 14 days!

This thread is the general purpose LD30 thread. Any discussion about LD30 and its games can be posted here. I plan to participate again, so I'll probably be posting about my game in this thread, but feel free to talk about any LD30 games in this thread. Also, if you know anything about coding or game making, you should participate in Ludum Dare 30! And if you don't, you should still take this opportunity to join in and learn!

Right now the Theme Slaughtering has begun. You can help decide which theme will inspire literally thousands of games by taking part in the slaughtering. I believe the slaughtering will last only a week and then the theme voting will begin.

See previous DC posts about Ludum Dare:
Ludum Dare 29 - (I made It Came From... Beneath!! during LD29)
Ludum Dare [29] topic for other games - A thread about LD29 games.
Ludum Dare 23 - (I made Be Tiny, World! during LD23, and http://btw.deozaan.com]continued to work on it and improve it[/url] for years afterward!)

It's all kind of silly. I doubt any court will extend IP legal protections to a non-human at this stage of the game.

I don't think Wikimedia is trying to argue that the copyright belongs to the ape. I think the point of Wikimedia's argument is that the image is essentially in the public domain because the camera's owner doesn't own the copyright (as he didn't take the picture, or even supervise/direct the photograph in any way), and the photographer (the person/creature/thing that took the photo) is not a human, so the ape can't own the copyright either.

That's not a coder's shoe. It's a hipster's shoe. Too many missing keys. You couldn't code with that shoe. It's missing vital keys for programming.

There's not even an up arrow? thumb down thumb down

Fun idea; awful execution.

True. My point was more about how "digital piracy" isn't actually theft. "Stolen" passwords definitely present a much bigger risk of personal loss than a "stolen" digital movie.

Even so, if someone "steals" the combination to your safe, nothing has been stolen until they use the combination to open your safe and steal the contents.

I prefer the old security term "compromise" as in: to expose or make vulnerable to danger

Whether or not something was taken is almost moot once your security is compromised and the potential is there for someone to act upon it.

Now if the act of compromising the security of digital accounts or IDs was specifically made a crime it would go a long way towards clearing up that nagging issue of whether or not it was an actual criminal act if nothing had been taken yet.

Yeah, "compromised" is a good term when dealing with passwords or vault combinations. But it doesn't quite fit the act of "stealing" digital movies or music. The only thing that is supposedly compromised in that situation is the thickness of the MPAA's and RIAA's wallets. tongue

In total, more than 420,000 web and FTP sites were robbed.

Robbed? huh

We really have to come up with a better word to describe digital "theft" that leaves the original unharmed and intact. If someone stole my refrigerator by making an exact copy of it and leaving me with my own copy... would I really care? Would I consider it theft?

I get your point, but,
in this case, it could depend on whether they could empty your copy of the fridge, or not undecided

Still seems a bit of a hassle. I'd just use BitTorrent Sync and create a folder to sync with each person/group.

It's like a private, self/non-hosted, peer-to-peer, torrented, unlimited-space Dropbox!
