Oh! oh!   Cry

IE9 must be getting oversensitive these days.
I should have taken a snapshot but i was still in the process of installation.
Nevertheless, i did see with my own eyes words in a long phrase with "dangerous" and "not commonly downloaded" in it.

Sheeshhh!
127  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / FARR not a commonly downloaded program? on: October 15, 2011, 06:46:10 AM
This is a good one!

After doing a fresh install of my good ol' Windows 7 Home,
i took IE out for a stroll to download one of my top 5 favorite programs (FARR).
After waiting a while for it to finish downloading,
IE tells me that it could be a dangerous program for it is not commonly downloaded?!
I couldn't install it straight from IE but did manager to find the Download folder and install it.
Of course, this happened prior to installing my AV program but still! What a... shinanigan!

Long live Firefox!  Thmbsup

Okay!

Seems like Opera and Firefox are on a downfall...

Goccha! Diigolet isn't that bad!
Of course, Firefox was their first baby so it's hard for them to replicate their toolbar for every other browser (though they seem to be courting G Chrome quite a bit lately).

btw, i've also got a diploma in philosophy; not sure what that's worth these days.

@MilesAhead - pardon my ignorance, but what exactly is this "auto-wrapping" of bookmarks?

@urlwolf - "kb" shortcut for Diigo?

I only have my grade 12 diploma.
131  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Opera 11.5 Released on: June 30, 2011, 07:46:32 PM
Don't know if that happens to you, but until recently, i'd get not just those "lame bookmarks" that MilesAhead spoke of, but also a whole slew of duplicates (sync online process). With latest versions, the sync process seems to have improved.

Wonder why Opera installs those "lame bookmarks"?
Are they getting money for this publicity?

It's been a long wait but it was worth it.
I'm really enjoying this beta version found at http://www.rssowl.org/

The Google Reader sync isn't perfect yet but the basic stuff is in.   Thmbsup

Ya, of all places!  Grin

Reminds me of IBM who had come out with a super performing computer a few years back.
Apparently it could make impeccable weather forecasts.
The next day, an unforeseen wet front came in, dumping in plenty of rain that the new computer failed to pick up.

We do our best but computers will never be perfect.

Couldn't it help but share it with you, this is what i found in my Yahoo spam folder today:

Welcome to the All-New Yahoo! Calendar and Yahoo! Notepad!


We're excited that you're trying out the All-New Yahoo! Calendar and Yahoo! Notepad. These new versions give you much easier ways to share your calendar, send event invites, colour-code calendar layers, zoom in on days, and sync on your mobile device. Some exciting features of the All-New Yahoo! Calendar etc.


Way ta go Yahoo!  tongue
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Delicious' new home.. on: May 06, 2011, 07:18:26 AM
del.icio.us - thanks for the correction Allen!

I had high hopes with Spurl but i guess they had issues with spammers and hackers?

Diigo is handy and after so many years,
an ol' timer like myself needs to be more than convinced in order to change games.

Newcomers will likely be the main ones to find their way to Pinboard rather than people who have been used other bookmarking services for years. There may be a new wave of Delicious users since it has been recently (finally!) sold by Yahoo.

p.s. was this there yesterday? Pinboard is charging $9.33 for new accounts?
136  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Delicious' new home.. on: May 05, 2011, 08:33:30 PM
Hadn't heard of Pinboard before either.
Where was it hidding?

When Diigo came out, it had to contend with established biggies like Delicious.us and Furl.
Since then Furl is no more and Delicious, well...
Diigo has come a long way and seems to be pretty well no.1

Spurl (r.i.p.) looked quite promising at the time.
Will this Pinboard be a serious contender?
Time will tell, but it's simplicity and speed may find a big fan club.

FYI, Linked Notes (previously mentioned here) has been recently upgraded.

Very small program and there's a portable version too!  Thmbsup

Freeware version and shareware.

JavaJones,

What about the latest emails that were perhaps permanently lost by GMail?  ohmy
I've been backing up mine to another email account since the beginning but it's not the same thing as having them in my regular GMail account.
With Thunderbird (never liked the Bat, especially for lack of support) i suppose you can bring them all back (if your backup account allows free access, in my case Yahoo). Thus, it is still a handy option to upkeep.

@40hz, i'm still very much a newbiewubi and from what i've been seeing over the past few days, there are many good points in WUBI but also plenty of shortcomings that make it difficult to fully accept (yet!).

FARR is a hard app to replace.  Thmbsup
143  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is next best thing to FARR for Linux? on: December 24, 2010, 08:00:01 PM
Thanks Mouser, will look into it.

Newbie with WUBI.
144  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / What is next best thing to FARR for Linux? on: December 24, 2010, 07:37:14 PM
I know it's not possible but there must be something close to FARR for Linux.

Christmas wishes to all!
Happy Holidays to those who don't.
145  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Copernic Desktop Pro on special on: November 27, 2010, 12:17:03 PM
It looks like a decent program indeed!

I forgot to mention that i still use FARR on a regular basis.
Probably more so than the others i mentioned. Excellent price tag on that one too!   Thmbsup
Unfortunately, i could never get that WindowsSearch plugin to work with it.
146  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Copernic Desktop Pro on special on: November 27, 2010, 04:51:56 AM
That's better. Thanks Curt!

Anyway, after giving it a test drive, i'm still more content with Windows 7 + Filelocator Lite.

Could be more useful for XP users?
147  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Copernic Desktop Pro on special on: November 26, 2010, 12:14:42 PM
$24.95 is not bad for what some consider to be a pretty good search engine for your desktop.

Not on for long.
148  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ResophNotes programmer needs a bit of help on: October 13, 2010, 07:06:31 PM
For the record, i noticed that ResophNotes' "terms of use" page has changed (for the better of course!).

Three cheers to SKA for lending a hand!!!
149  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ResophNotes programmer needs a bit of help on: October 13, 2010, 04:30:27 AM
My pleasure SKA!

Thank you too to to to to Curt for pointing out the exact link for the "terms of service".

I felt that there wasn't a better place to post this help message since this programmer is offering "donation ware".
150  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / ResophNotes programmer needs a bit of help on: October 12, 2010, 01:45:26 PM
After posting a suggestion on this thread:
http://www.donationcoder....p?topic=24171.0;topicseen

This comment came shortly afterward:
"Resophnotes terms of use look very peculiar
http://www.resoph.com/Res...phNotes/Terms_of_Use.html
SKA"

So, i wrote to the author to convey this observation, here was his reply:
First of all, thanks for submitting ResophNotes to a forum.

"I am just an individual programmer and I like to share the app that might be useful to other people (I created it as a personal app so I can use it myself).  I might read too many modern day lawyer stories so I decided to add that "Terms of Use" to protect myself (I hope it can).  I copied and modified it from other applications (including other Simplenote clients) so I thought none of the terms are really special.  I am sorry if people got scared by them.

My bottom line: I am a very simple programmer and this is a freeware.  I just hope people like it and share their experience and suggestions with me.  I won't take those terms serious unless someone try to hold the software against me.  Check the change log, I've been trying very hard to fix bugs and add features (95% comes from users all over the world).  In the mean time, if you or other people on the forum like to make any suggestion on the terms, please don't hesitate to send any comment to me.  I can modify the terms as long as I still feel "protected".

Thanks a lot for your email,
C.Y."

So, if some of you geeks can lend a helping hand to this guy in making a better "terms of service" for product, i think he would gladly appreciate your feedback!  Thmbsup
