IP address cannot be used to identify users. Sometimes hundreds share a single IP.

well then I end up with the same question as bit smiley
Must see if I can test it more scientifically. My experience has been: watching stuff in one browser where I'm not logged in, and afterwards getting offered the same video in another browser where I am logged in.

Here's a very simple solution.

Stay logged into GMail in one browser, say Firefox...and do all your YouTubing in a different one, say IE. Simple solution.

this doesnt work here** - although it may work in combination with Tor (mentioned in OP).

** Just anecdotal, but I'm pretty sure it's not working here - I presumed that they can simply see that the IP address for both browsers is the same (?)

In preparation for spring cleaning, I have been watching a lot of post-apocalyptic movies & TV shows.

I was wondering initially if your spring cleaning was the equivalent of the apocalypse tongue Wink cheesy
but then I read on - good logic, must try it thumbs up

Not clear to me - I presume you can still update to the prerequisite level after that date?

Seems to be what they're saying. But it would have been helpful if they had said that more explicitly.

Sounds good thumbs up
I have a banjaxed wrist again so unable to play at the moment myself :-( and I still haven't graduated to the world of tweeting tongue

IIUC flat view (displaying all the files in a folder *and* it's sub-folders in a non-hierarchical view) and virtual folders cover what you're looking for. Dopus has both. Check out the free file managers, or the cheaper ones - there may be something there too if you're lucky.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The right organization (WE views and a particular need) on: April 13, 2014, 02:23:06 PM
You need a new file manager ;-) cheesy
If I understand your requests correctly, Dopus can do most of this. Not sure about other file managers.

EDIT// not sure if I understand your second post. Can you try and give more detail - maybe give an example too.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Anyone here using a standing desk? on: April 10, 2014, 05:50:33 PM
I suspect these things depend on your posture and, if relevant, your reason for having back pain in the first place. I'd imagine that standing could help correct, or exacerbate a back problem, depending on what it is.

FWIW, standing gets me in the legs. After an hour or so I have to keep going up on my toes, after a couple of hours, I just want to put my feet up for the rest of the day.
Then again, I dont like sitting for too long either undecided smiley

This is making me think about my desk setup - think my monitor is too high for the way I sit...
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me! on: April 10, 2014, 01:51:55 PM
French band Nouvelle Vague do great covers of 80's music. I like them a lot, I loved a lot of the originals first time round but the covers are so very different (usually a breath of fresh air, and sometimes I prefer the new version).

Here's a cover of a song I didnt know: Eisbär from the Swiss neue deutsche welle group Grauzone (1980).
Wonderfully clicheed sixties-Bond/French style video

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K99iitbISs" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K99iitbISs</a>

Lyrics are basically:
I want to be a polar bear,
then I wont have to cry [cry out] any more,
Polar bears never have to cry [tears]


Original here

In a very different style, I like this cover from Oomph too:

^Great, happy to hear that smiley
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Internet Explorer Front End on: April 10, 2014, 10:36:29 AM
What I'm looking for is the equivalent of the Firefox add-on that enhances the front end (the text that makes up the menus and the like) without running the page off the screen. Heck, I'd gladly settle for making the character weight 'bold' instead of 'normal'.

To make the menus bold in Windows 7 (this for all programmes!)

Right-click desktop, click "Personalize" - your current theme will be selected.
To be on the safe side, right-click your current theme and save it.
Now, in the bottom of the same window, click on "Window color"
At the bottom of the next 'page', click "Advanced appearance settings"
-
a new dialugue window open - same as the one to modify the classic theme. Click on the text for menu etc. in the image, and change text to bold below, you can also modify text size, etc.
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Quick Paste pop-up on: April 09, 2014, 03:40:13 PM
if you want to keep the clips open and paste multiple ones, just use ctrl+alt+W to show the main window and then double click items to send them to the last window.

This sounds useful - unfortunately it doesnt work with Win8 (tried with Firefox & Notepad).
I get the copied sound, but nothing pastes. Can try it on Win7 tomorrow.

(and sorry, cant help either with 'Stack' feature. And another welcome to ClipPete :-)

^I *think* VPN is your keyword. Never used one myself though.

But (unclear if you missed that) the Hulu offer was for a weekend in February...
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Off topic but does anhyone know wherei can get a Guaranted real JAVA installer on: April 06, 2014, 03:10:20 PM
Now I have to find a way to get rid of the BAD copy and replace it with a good one.
Sounds easy enough but if using a browser that is already infected it redirects you back to another infected copy.

You/they/someone has to find a way to get rid of whatever it was that was installed - and to be very sure that it's gone.
Then you wont be getting redirected anymore. And removing Java completely might be a good idea: I lived without it for most of a year without problems. (Some sites do need it though, some software too.)
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 3 - Window Object and Scrolling Capture Screencast Videos on: April 04, 2014, 03:14:22 PM
Hello.  Wondering if the videos still active?  

I have clicked and got only a blank page with start arrow which does not work for me.  Not sure if my computer or if vids not active.  Trying to see how to do a continuous scrolling capture.  

videos are still active; I have mixed success with this depending on the page in question, but getting a look at the video definitely helps :-)

I know you've all seen videos of cats pulling town toilet paper rolls, but this cat has learned a new trick:

^Missed that one.

Oddly, what happens here is that it starts and works fine if I start it using the shortcut, but gives an error if the exe is started 'directly'.

FWIW, neither of the xml files I created have been used.
20  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: FreeFileSync - automated backup - Mini-Review on: March 28, 2014, 05:09:09 AM
Installed on Windows 8 laptop yesterday - kept getting an error:

---------------------------
FreeFileSync - An exception occurred
---------------------------
Cannot open file "GlobalSettings.xml".

Error Code 32: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (CreateFile)
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

I created an empty xml file with that name in the programme folder & copied into a 'Bin' subfolder there. It still didnt work so I gave up - today it's working though (didnt reboot - just hibernated, so not sure what resolved it).

 

Current version has no 'extras' selected - user has to make a choice which seems fair enough.

Thanks for the bug report about pixelation, will fix.
What would be a better default hotkey for deleting image?

thanks mouser,
re changing the default delete hotkey - you're going to have the problem of upsetting all the people who are used to using the currrent one... Do whatever you think best (for me, best would be anything except Ctrl+Q, *but* saying that, I have an AHK script that uses Ctrl+Q for close app/window on my Win7 machine. I can just try on my second machine - and see if it that also works on Win8, in which case I would no longer have the 'problem').

I am finding that its not working very well in Windows 8.  I have a donation ready to go.... can you fix it?

this might be worth testing (I havent tried it lately, so cant comment) -

hi Paul, good to see you again!

NimbleBox looks good, might give it a go.

I believe Easy Screencast Recorder is very much a work in progress. I didnt have much success with it myself (but cant remember the details now).

Well, I know a *lot* more about engines than I did before (which was almost nothing) thumbs up
Love the way it's self-perpetuating (is that the right description?) - well obviously, and unfortunately, not quite like a perpetual-motion machine.
(You're probably laughing at me now, but I swear, I've never even wondered before how engines actually work :p )
