I don't really watch TV, so I'd never heard of Scorpion aside from this thread. But I just looked into it on IMDB. The user-reviews are pretty telling. Sorry for the Spoiler boxes; I can't figure out how to link to specific reviews on IMDB.

Here's one that is especially biting:

Here's another:

Or how about this one, which I assume is ironic.

To my recollection, Mormons are not allowed to drink any kind of alcohol, soda, coffee or tea.

It's alcohol, coffee, and tea. Though some will drink herbal tea. Don't ask me why. I don't understand it.

But that doesn't necessarily invalidate what App said about the Mormons using some sort of tea to treat asthma. They didn't always have the diet restrictions that they now do. From the sounds of it, it may have been long ago enough that they might still have been partakers of tea, tobacco, etc.

Yet another update:

  • Added option to slow time when asteroids get close to give you more time to react (enabled by default).
  • Asteroids which destroy your turret are also destroyed themselves.
  • Respawn shockwave destroys nearby asteroids, making it much less likely to die immediately upon spawning.
  • The number of asteroids on screen at once is now displayed on screen.
59  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Re: LATEST VERSION: fSekrit 1.40 shrinkwrapped! on: November 03, 2014, 11:42:00 AM
Have you tried renaming a .tmp to .exe and running it. I suspect they might be copies the program saved since it couldn't overwrite the original.

I tried that and it's just a vanilla fSekrit.exe. It opens straight up to a blank text editor with no prompt for a password.

I agree with 4wd's guess:
c) Your AV/AM program has taken exception to fSekrit and refuses to let it write out the final executable.

Well, sometimes it lets me write it out, and sometimes it doesn't. It often gives me that error first and then if I try to save again it will save. But this last time I tried it, it refused to save no matter how many times I tried. That is... until I saved to a different file.

I checked and it's not set to read-only.

I'm guessing it has something to do with how long the program has been open. Because if I open the file and edit it and save it within a couple of minutes, it works fine. But there's one or two in particular that I leave open for long periods of time (because I repeatedly need the info contained in it) and after perhaps a couple of days it starts giving me the error about not being able to save it.

I've finally looked up how to use PGP with email and got it all set up, but since I know absolutely nobody else who uses PGP for their email I can't even try it out. (c:

Most people who would use PGP refuse to use it due to the overwhelming amount of (circumstantial) evidence that PGP has an NSA backdoor in it.

If you're going to use something like this, you may want to look into GPG (Gnu Privacy Guard). It's Open Source so not much chance of any backdoors being slipped in.

I think I actually am using GPG. I'm using Thunderbird with Enigmail. The article I read about it said that GPG and PGP are used interchangeably, so I wasn't worried about using the correct one when talking/typing about it. But I guess I should make sure to use the right term after all.  Thmbsup
62  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Re: LATEST VERSION: fSekrit 1.40 shrinkwrapped! on: November 02, 2014, 01:03:28 AM
I've been trying to use fSekrit lately and I keep getting errors when I try to save a file.


And lots of little .tmp files are being saved in the directory where I'm trying to save the file.


I'm not sure, but I think this is bad (as in insecure). Why is this happening and how do I get it so it will save my file?
63  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / Re: Risk of Rain 4-pack on: November 02, 2014, 01:47:20 AM
So Risk of Rain is part of the Humble Bundle 13 and it comes as a 4-pack. I bought it even though I already own it, mostly for the soundtrack, but also for a DRM free copy.

But now I have a couple extras to hand out. Anyone want one?

Where was that awesome rant about Daylight savings time and programming, where the final answer was "just use the open source subroutine and don't mess with it"?

I'm not sure what that has to do with this thread.

Here's more silly humor:

In the US, they were a one-hit-wonder, with this song, introducing Americans to the phrase "pissing the night away", which we mistakenly thought meant something else.
Curious. What did people think it meant when they first heard it?

When I and my friends first heard it, we thought the woman was saying "kissing the night away" but when it was pointed out that it was saying the other words, it didn't make sense and it had to be taken literally: as in "urinating all night long" which still didn't make sense, but that's what she was saying.

Interesting article. It's got me following links like crazy and reading up on a bunch of things I've always had a passing interest in (cryptography) but never bothered to really look into.

I've finally looked up how to use PGP with email and got it all set up, but since I know absolutely nobody else who uses PGP for their email I can't even try it out. (c:

I doubt anyone I know personally and could truly verify their identity (that they are who they say they are) could be bothered to go through the effort to set it up for themselves. They'd probably just look at me strangely and wonder what all the fuss was about.
67  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Router-based ad-blocking. Possible? Totally! on: October 30, 2014, 09:20:05 PM
I get stuck at this step. I can't seem to connect to my router using PuTTy or WinSCP or pscp.

Now, using 'scp' (if on Linux or BSD) or 'pscp' (PuTTY's implementation of scp on Windows), upload the file to your router.
The syntax for scp is: [scp or path to pscp] [path to the hosts file you created] root@[your router's address]:/path/to/somewhere

From Linux, if I put the hosts file in my home directory, and my router is at, it looks like this:
[copy or print]
scp ~/hosts.txt root@

On Windows, if I put the file on my Desktop, it might look like this in a command window (Start Menu -> Run.. -> 'cmd'):
[copy or print]
"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\pscp.exe" "C:\users\edvard\Desktop\hosts.txt" root@

69  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Two of the best commentaries I've seen about GamerGate on: October 29, 2014, 11:16:25 PM
Reasonably fair articles. I think I also liked the Clark one better, though there was a part or two where I wondered what the heck he was talking about.

I feel that Rant #8 misses the point of the #NotYourShield hashtag.

8. Women, Minorities, and LGBT People Are Not Magic.

The "#NotYourShield" hashtag is apparently intended to convey that #GamerGate can't be sexist or racist or anti-gay because there are women and minorities and LGBT people who support #GamerGate.

The hashtag wasn't meant to say that GG can't be *-ist because there are minorities who support it and said minorities are incapable of being *-ist. It was a response to anti-GG people saying, essentially:

"Literally the only people who support GG are straight white male misogynists!"

The #NotYourShield hashtag was a way to show that supporters of GG are a diverse group of people, and the opposition was whitewashing (is that the right term?) pro-GG folk and totally dehumanizing anyone who wasn't straight, white, male, or a misogynist. Which, by my estimation, was/is practically every single supporter of GG, since even if you are a straight, white, male supporter of GG, it's highly unlikely that you're also a misogynist.

Well... I signed up to get two of them (planning to let someone else have the other one).

More from the Kickstarter FAQ:

Does Matchstick support 5GHz Wifi? 4K?
MatchStick does not support 5GHz wifi. It adds cost! Same with 4K ... Maybe V2?

Does Matchstick support DRM?
We are doing our best to make sure the requirements will be met either via the playback app itself or the OS. We're in ongoing talks...

Does it support Miracast, WiDi, DLNA and Airplay?
Nope, sorry! Not supported at this time.

Will this device be able to play media from a local source like samba, NFS, or windows file share?
Not supported yet. Sorry.
71  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Matchstick - A streaming stick using Firefox OS [Kickstarter] on: October 29, 2014, 01:47:55 AM
First impressions:

Wow, that thing looks HUGE!

It looks like the same content has to be showing on your device in order to "mirror" it onto your TV. I can't tell if that's just for advertising purposes (so you can see the purpose of getting something that was on your device to show on your TV) or if it actually works that way. The thing I like about Chromecast is that I can cast a Netflix show/movie to my TV, then use my tablet to do other things while the TV is still showing Netflix. I'm worried that the Matchstick can't do that, but actually just mirrors content from your device onto your TV (i.e. both screens have to be showing the same thing at the same time).

Strangely, I worry that because it uses FireFox OS as its base, that it will not be very well supported, or won't be supported for very long and will end up being kind of useless after a relatively short time. Or perhaps vendors (such as Netflix) will implement their own DRM by refusing to play on the device... undecided On the other hand, the fact that it's open could mean that it's a lot better than Chromecast as far as functionality and supported services.

You should make a DonationCoder slack team. (c:

So I've noticed that when it's minimized to tray, if I double click or right-click and select "Show Main Window" it will make the window show up in the task bar, but it doesn't actually show the window until I click it in the task bar. So that's kind of useless.

Also, while it's in the state of still minimized but showing in the task bar, it also still shows it in the tray, which I think it should only do when it's minimized. Which... erm... I guess it is/does. So once you fix the first problem, this second one will also go away.

I'd also like to request a portable/zip/non-installer version.
73  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Android shortcuts on: October 28, 2014, 04:56:48 PM
For the first one, yes.

There's a widget called "Directions" which you can just put on your "desktop" and it will have you configure it to set the destination and navigation type (car, public transportation, biking, or walking).

For the second one... Sounds like your MobileVOIP app would need a widget to support that. Or if it could hook into your device so that calls made were intercepted and the MobileVOIP app was made as the default app (I used GrooVeIP which did this). Then you could just use a Contact widget to call the contact and let the MobileVOIP app intercept/override it and go from there.
