Not sure if this the right place to be posting this stuff (?)
I believe I understand though, why you want to post it.

FWIW, second link in OP ('worldwide cancer') is a 404

Well, the last 'thing' I got here, I dont honestly know what it was - nothing too serious, and I got rid of it fairly quickly and didnt keep a record; (anti-virus missed it; I've installed mbam since).
But what I wanted to say was that it came from an ad. I didnt even have to click anything. And that has happened me before - load a webpage and that's it: wham bam thank you ma'am...

FWIW, after getting rid of the ransomware from a friend's machine (it was the porn/police/blackmail one, not the one that encrypted all data), I removed Java completely from my main machine.

... maybe a more productive approach would be to look at what our anti-virus has stopped ???
In my experience, Avira stopped a couple of things; MSE nothing yet - but I think I've only had one attack since I started using it (probably a couple of years ago now).

105  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is it so hard to find a decent image organizer? on: July 29, 2014, 07:27:16 AM
When I think about it, what I would want from an image organiser would be:
  • reasonable speed
  • ease of organising, adding categories etc.
  • good search
  • ease of opening in my choice of external editor - maybe photoshop for this one, Sagelight for the next
  • ease of use

I still havent bought anything to organise images embarassed

Just got an email offer** for Photo Supreme (which still gets called idimager on it's webpage - why change the name if you are not going to change the name undecided).
Anyways, the offer works out @ 20% off of 80 US$
Buy Photo Supreme now and receive a free upgrade to V3 as soon as it hits the release date.

I did see some good comments about it a while back, in a forum I can no longer find...
Did anyone here move on from IDImager to Photo Supreme ??

FWIW I removed ransomware from a machine last year - it had the full Avira suite installed. I'm not writing this to knock Avira which I still think is one of the best conservative** anti-virus's out there. I suspect a lot of these things would get past most, if not all anti-viruses. (Maybe 40's combo above would work.)


** by conservative, I mean it errs on the false-positives side

Bard is produced by the same guy (Justice), so I'd tend to think that's a genuine mistake.

There's definitely something strange about the link:

can you be more specific there?

PS - who's giving the warnings?

"Not on a workstation" - but ... on servers then?

did I miss something undecided
or
did you miss this post ... ?

The Cloud is about as rife with penetration options as Linda Lovelace's entourage ... But I'm guessing he's unaware that I only deal with business/commercial class networks.

I just had to let go of a 23-year-old Oldsmobile wagon, which I regret. Now the local farmer has it and will use it to haul produce out of the fields.

Sign of a good car!
big old Mercedes used be popular with the farmers in Ireland, I guess because of their sturdiness.

Thanks for the heads up thumbs up


This one worked for me on Windows 8:

I have a pre-installed (OEM) Windows 8. The serial number is no longer accessible anywhere. (It's in the bios, but apparently even there it's hidden.)
I came across this little app (*not* a 'tiles' app - the word app is being stolen from us...)

I've always liked cars, but I've never loved one, till now...

Peugot 309 (SX)
25 years old in October
Only 45,000 miles driven
Looks like new inside and in very good nick outside

Almost looks like anti-design, doesnt it !? I like that too cheesy
Corners really well.
Been driving around listening to 80's music with speakers that make FM sound like medium wave. It's not like being in a time warp, it's better - no idea why really...
(FWIW, the year this car was built, I was driving a Nissan something or other, and a 1970's Volvo.)

If you're really printing a *lot*, you could set up one of those IV style systems where you have the ink in bottles piped directly to the cartridges.

Try http://www.printerknowled...ntinuous-flow-systems.10/ for more info
I read a piece by Vic Laurie recently that printer's ink is about $3000 a gallon. May be better to pipe in crude oil?

well, that'll look after the black. All you need now is the other three cheesy

I'd love to see this implemented somehow, but yeah, how...

#1) a searchbox added to the quickpaste list would have this advantage:
if unsure if a clip still on the quickpaste list, open that, if it's not there, then Ctrl+F and search.

#2) OTOH, "a different hotkey that brought up a different small dialog window designed for quickly filtering and pasting" could work like FARR using the F keys or Ctrl+[number] to select/use a clip.
The initial dialogue could (maybe) list the current quickpaste list (?)


^ that (#2) does sound very nice to me...

All those folders on the left side look ugly as sin so far but there's actually some interesting ideas there,
e.g. the dynamic thumbnails - they keep the same height but have variable width:

Viewing videos in Firefox through TOR Vidalia, the Adobe Flash plugin has been really crashy lately.

for a long time now, I've been having trouble with flash and firefox (no TOR involved).
Unfortunately Pale Moon + Flash is not hitting the spot either...

Edit// no blue screens with either but both bad enough to want me to move on to something else (have to think where to go to now...)

what would they use if there were no bitcoin?
