I started this thread on one computer with a new NEC monitor and I definitively see the background shine through the foreground picture.

sounds like a very good monitor (off-topic, but I'm curious: what's the model?)

How to use the above code?
0. Disable User Access control [temporarily] - Once this task of deleting files / folders is completed,
you may want to re-enable User Access Control. To disable UAC,
go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Turn User Account Control on or off ; then uncheck the
option "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" and click OK. Then restart the computer.
1. Copy/paste the code to Notepad
2. Save the file with the file name as: DeleteFiles.bat to C:\ drive [any location is ok - you need
to go to the relevant location using the command line in step: 4]
Note that the 'Save as type' should be selected as "All Files (*.*)" before you click the Save button.
3. Go to Command prompt
4. Type CD \  to go to C:\
5. Type DeleteFiles foldername and then press Enter key
By default, the folder name is C:\Windows.old.
If the Windows.old folder resides in D:\ [or a different drive], then enter the drive letter accordingly
along with the folder name.
6. Then you will notice a lot of operation in the command window and the script will end with
"Exiting..." . Press any key to exit the script.
Then you will find Windows.old folder is completely removed - Note that with this method the
contents of Windows.old folder will not won't be sent to the Recycle bin.
DeleteFiles.bat can be run without supplying the folder name also - in that scenario, it will
consider Windows.old folder present in the current drive from which you run the batch file

Have you tried T-Clock?

I dont have it installed on this machine, so cant say either way - but I do remember a discussion in that thread about different systems of week numbers.

7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: LastPass alternatives with two-factor authentication? (including premium LP) on: August 26, 2015, 03:43:45 AM
I'm currently using Enpass (www.enpass.io)

are you using that with any kind of two-factor authentication?


Edit// I took the liberty of changing the thread title to "LastPass alternatives with two-factor authentication? (including premium LP)"

No. But as no user data is stored on their server (which is only used to sync between devices) would it be all that necessary? The data is encrypted by your device and remains on your device(s) so I don't see where some man-in-the-middle attempt would make any difference. All data is encrypyed and local. You wouldn't even need to decrypt in order to synchronize. It would be a little more work for the local clients  - but EnPass wouldn't need to worry or know about any of the the actual data.

Am I missing something?  huh
well,
as you know, I'm no expert. But the idea that all anyone needs is one password and then they have access *all* my passwords, and more - I find that pretty scary.

But the the killer is child window display. My program which has a main window and child windows for entry, report etc. show very odd. It shows WinXp button in child windows !! mad

that would be my nightmare (I seriously hated the XP theme) - but it's actually the Windows 7 theme:

[attachimg=#]

that's your screenshot (enlarged) in browser in Windows 7. Still a pretty dysfunctional theme mix ;-)
(FWIW, I actually like the flat Windows 8 *desktop* theme)


But like most users, I also request MS to understand desktop users too.

@Contro,
the problem was that you posted three very similar requests in three different threads - that makes it confusing and difficult for people to help.


Edit// could you post links to the other two threads?
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: create shortlinks to urls in a folder from a txt file with the url list on: August 23, 2015, 11:36:50 AM
Also I thought somebody wrote a script for another poster that created .url shortcuts from  links in a text file.  It was not too long ago.

yes, there was a thread on the topic anyways - saw it when searching for the other related threads...

I'm not having any luck find it again though :-(

He plead guilty to armed robbery? Was he actually armed? Details seem missing from the story.

I agree.  Details seem a bit sketchy.

Do you really need 3 threads in this forumsection to ask 3 times the same question? Sad

Oh, and the other 2 already have been answered properly, too...

now a new phone from them - or simply with that OS, would be a good option - a nice move away from all this lack of security and privacy.

Because it's open-source, malware producers don't have to empirically hack it. They can study the source code instead.

got me looking at Android, about which I know very little.
In the middle of reading this - it's almost two years old - not sure how much things have changed since then:
Google’s iron grip on Android: Controlling open source by any means necessary (arstechnica.com)

From page 4 of above:
Quote
We previously explored Play Service's update implications, but it is a huge weapon in the fight against Android forks. Play Services is a closed source app owned by Google and licensed as part of the Google Apps package. Any feature you see move from "normal" Android to Google Play Services is also moving from open source to closed source. This app pulls off the neat trick of not only enticing users with exclusive, closed source features, but locking in third-party developers with Google's proprietary APIs as well.

Taking the Android app ecosystem from Google seems easy: just get your own app store up and running, convince developers to upload their apps to it, and you're on your way. But the Google APIs that ship with Play Services are out to stop this by convincing developers to weave dependence on Google into their apps. Google's strategy with Google Play Services is to turn the "Android App Ecosystem" into the "Google Play Ecosystem" by making a developer's life as easy as possible on a Google-approved device—and as difficult as possible on a non-Google-approved device.

If you use any Google APIs and try to run your app on a Kindle, or any other non-Google version of AOSP: surprise! Your app is broken. Google's Android is a very high percentage of the Android market, and developers only really care about making their app easily, making it work well, and reaching a wide audience. Google APIs accomplish all that, with the side effect that your app is now dependent on the device having a Google Apps license.

does it ring any bells for anyone?

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: web design question: layouting one 'simple' page on my own? on: August 19, 2015, 02:17:27 PM
My HTML coding skills are roughly zero

you're kind of in trouble here -
I'd look for a template - or do a mock up in some graphics programme, and see if anyone can suggest a template.

Otherwise there's the WYSIWYG option, which doesnt seem to get positive responses in general... (see Miles's comments re 'quicky tools' above)


I'd love to have buttons that reveal/hide additional content when clicked

could you be more specific there? (or maybe a link to a site that already does something similar?)
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: LastPass alternatives? (including premium LP) on: August 19, 2015, 03:49:25 AM
summary:
with google authenticator required for logging in to Lastpass, I'm often able to bypass using it, when logging into certain sites (Ebay, google).

Say I'm trying to login to google: I click the little symbol in the name field and the Lastpass window pops up.
I fill in my Lastpass password and (in this browser at any rate) a new tab opens requesting the verification code.

^ that was in Iron portable. I have been able though to reproduce this in Firefox and PaleMoon.
Basically, with google Authenticator required for Laspass:

  • open your login page
  • click on the little symbol in one of the fields - that will open Lastpass dialogue
  • type in your Lastpass password
  • google Authenticator dialogue opens - in the back, *sometimes* the login details including password will be filled in already
  • close google Authenticator dialogue - Lastpass is not logged in, yet you have gotten logged into your site without filling in google Authenticator

The above flaw has worked for me with gmail and Ebay. Not with dc oddly ;-)

It's possible this is not a problem with Lastpass, but rather with the browser cookie settings. Or the site's cookies.
I was always amazed, that I could just type 'inbox' in the addressbar, select my gmail inbox link - and it would load without requiring a login, no matter what my login settings were for google. This was a problem with (default) cookie settings - but I would still hold google at fault for not changing things from their end.


I cant even find cookie settings in FF 39 :-/
