126  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / "Russia enacts 'draconian' law for bloggers" on: August 01, 2014, 12:41:57 PM
From the BBC:
Russia enacts 'draconian' law for bloggers and online media

If you get over 3,000 visits per day in Russia:

  • you will have to register (you cannot remain anonymous)
  • you must "conform to the regulations that govern the country's larger media outlets" (not sure what exactly they are)

On the radio here they were saying that you will also be held responsible for comments made on your site (not sure what consequences involved) - I dont see this mentioned in the BBC article, but maybe that's covered by the "regulations that govern the country's larger media outlets".

^ This last bit ties in with Ren's recent post about the trial of Ross Ulbricht (the "Dread Pirate Roberts"):

tl;dr - This fight is about the transfer of intent, e.g. I post something potentially illegal on your site, then you get charged for it. Good discussion there though, and worth a listen.

With photography you hear about certain film 'types' where digital attempts to reproduce the celluloid version. The colouring of an image can vary a lot between cameras. Every camera has it's weakness's and strengths. I think digital in general does have weakness's too (especially with reds) - I have no idea if film was better that way or not.

I guess what I'm a little sensitive about is this attitude that technology is "bad" because it has made things easier.  And every time I look into the issue, it's not the technology that's the problem, but the way it's being used.  And really, ultimately, i don't really care.  So what if hundreds of people are making bad movies.  I don't care.  I will find the good one, whether I'm in 1950 or 2014.

^ this sounds good to me smiley

If you like "Homeland" this is the "original", and much, much better if you ask me. The Israeli low budget TV series "Hatufim" (Kidnapped) is the TV series that later was adapted into "Homeland".

Article in The Guardian

sounds interesting - I fixed the link here (an extra http at the end of it)

^ thanks Cuffy thumbs up

I plan to try Auslogics Duplicate File Finder - it's at
http://www.auslogics.com/...re/duplicate-file-finder/

LOTS, and I mean LOTS of caveats about malware in the setup files
he's a bit hypocritical -
he completely refuses to use one piece of software because it uses Open Candy, yet warns abut the alternative option trying to get you to download some piece of crap instead of the app itself. And he recommends a few that do try to install other apps (he warns about it) - but this is exactly what Open Candy can be/is used for (so whether they use Open Candy to do it or not is irrelevant).
It's almost like he doesnt know what Open Candy is undecided

I've enjoyed learning more about 'ironic' Thmbsup
I hadn't realised that she was using the word incorrectly - had never given it any thought before, to be honest.


As pointed out here, my grammar in that sentence was atrocious.
lol,
I meant that grammar comment for myself embarassed After watching the video, I was getting self-conscious about my grammar - it's not my strong point, e.g. is it grammatically incorrect to start a sentence with 'after'? I have no idea (and it doesn't really bother me either way). I find a lot of it illogical: simply a case of someone dictating that this is correct, and this not. And we're not exactly somewhere formal that it might be considered necessary to write 'proper' like ;-)

Undeserved here imo - might be worth making a new thread and suggesting it in general to people?

[..] What is FEBE? What is Classic Theme Restore? What is SyncPlaces?

I guess ^these^ ones are all addons. (I know the Classic theme restorer is and the others sound familiar)

I believe I understand though, why you want to post it.

FWIW, second link in OP ('worldwide cancer') is a 404
142  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money? on: July 29, 2014, 05:03:02 PM
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).

145  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
146  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is it so hard to find a decent image organizer? on: July 29, 2014, 07:22:44 AM
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.
intro video - from end of 2012:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzVEq3qaAgg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzVEq3qaAgg</a>

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?
