PS:  I thought Blat was a Beer Brand?  Doesn't Homer Simpson drink it?
he used drink Duff

Dunno if Blat based on the Russian word:
Blat (term), a form of corruption in Russia and the Soviet Union
According to Max Vasmer, the origin of the word blat is the Yiddish blatt, meaning a "blank note" or a "list".[5] However, according to both Vasmer and N. M. Shansky, blat may also have entered into Russian as the Polish loanword blat, a noun signifying "someone who provides an umbrella" or a "cover".[5] The word became part of Imperial Russian criminal slang in the early 20th century, where it signified relatively minor criminal activity such as petty theft.[5]

[look who's procrastinating ;-)]

I really enjoyed this timelapse video of the making of a game in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 32.
Made by Deozaan,
more info in this post.

I've no idea what the music is...

great job -
it's pretty inspiring.

I don’t know why, but somehow the very act of giving up altogether on LD32 filled me with inspiration. I had moved on physically, but my mind couldn’t think of anything else. I was excited about this new idea! I could hardly wait to finish showering so I could get back to my computer and see if it worked as well in practice as it did in my mind.
Interesting how often you hear of things working out -
or, as in this case, you getting the good idea, after one has given up.

And I loved the video with music -
well done all round!
180 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: attempted capture opens web page on: April 28, 2015, 11:10:06 AM
This possibly related - from the Linkman (Bookmarks) email support -
topic: why Linkman cannot save bookmark per hotkey in Palemoon:
If you press the global Linkman hotkey to get the bookmark from the topmost browser there is nothing Linkman can to to force Palemoon to send the bookmark to Linkman.Some browsers have an API (programmable function) to send a bookmark to another application (for example Firefox). Some other have no API, but we can hack away and read it directly from the browser bar. (for example Chrome). Pale Moon is the sole exception. It offers no API to send a bookmark, and the browser bar uses a Linux style user interface that cannot be accesses by other Windows programs (for privacy reasons?).
(my emphasis)

when you post to a thread (click preview if using quick-reply) check to see if "Notify me of replies" is ticked (see below) by default. It should be with your settings.
(Either way this still a problem for mouser & co).

sorry ayryq, not much help here -
but just for the record:
I use Palemoon and am unable to reproduce this.

Windows 7 x64
Palemoon 25.3.2 x64
SC v4.9.6 (I have portable (with default settings) and installed versions)

No idea where to watch soccer in the States -
have seen some US soccer on Eurosport - the quality seems quite high thumbs up

Here in Europe, it's difficult to get to watch live soccer online legally - and the illegal sources usually aren't of great quality. And watching live is definitely the most exciting, especially if you're a supporter.

In Youtube search for something like "soccer matches full" will get you a share of matches. During the world cup, international games were taken down very quickly. Not sure how it is for league matches.

186  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Cloudberry Backup (S3 etc.) on BDJ ($10) on: April 28, 2015, 05:13:13 AM
Disclaimer: I haven't used this.

The focus is Amazon S3, but it seems to work with a bunch of online backup sites.
Seems like a very good price (if online backup is your focus) - monitors files & backs up online.

I've used their Explorer with which you can look at your S3 backups. Has a nice interface, and is easy to use.
They also have software that allows treating S3 as a local drive.

~20 hours to go.

(I find it looks fine at the beginning of a sentence too)


but it's good to preview

Maybe I misunderstand that you half want to bring this to our attention, and half want a solution.

I'm sorry if I get impatient, but still think my advice is good.
For the second half (a possible solution) - did you connect to FB using a phone?
(If so what are the settings on the phone as per your thread?)

189  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: facebook tracing on: April 25, 2015, 02:40:30 PM
I already looked at security and privacy (who knows what is the difference between them)

that's all I wanted to hear - I get frustrated when you (or anyone else) just keep asking questions without saying what you have done yourself to try and solve the problem.

smiley And I wouldnt call that 'misbehaving' - I'd call it a bit of good advice:
if you want help - be helpful to those who are trying to help you - and that includes the above (i.e. telling what you have tried (or not); what you know yourself; etc. etc.)

edit// I meant did you follow up on any of the suggestions in the thread you linked to (and no, I didnt look very closely at them so have no idea if they're of any help - that's for you to figure out - but let us know)
190 Software / DcUpdater / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - DcUpdater - 1.30.01 - Apr 4, 2012 on: April 25, 2015, 02:30:23 PM
No posts in this forum since July 2013. I thought I'd change that by saying I just tried out DCUpdater by using it to install some new software and it appears to work flawlessly. Nothing has updated yet, though. We shall see.

It even detected my FARR plugins.   smiley

I still use it and like it a lot. Have had some minor problems: cant remember exactly now, but I think if you have installed and portable flavours of same software present, it can get confused with the install path and installs both to same path. For some reason it always starts up with Windows (7) for me - looking for updates for CHS (but tbh I haven't checked if that's something in the CHS settings).
There may be other bugs - but not that I've come across thumbs up

A drink with a severed human toe. In Canada. In the Yukon.

all I can say is thank god for flashblock  tongue
193  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: facebook tracing on: April 25, 2015, 02:10:04 PM
where exactly facebook tells her location? that could be the ordinary you are saying that facebook displays ''from Copenhagen"
but she continues saying, if they click on her name (not sure what she means) they can see her EXACT location!!!

this is probably what I am refering too, but I have not seen/done it on facebook
any idea?

  • have you even looked at the settings yet ?
  • or tried any of the suggestions in that thread ?
  • i.e. what exactly have you tried so far ?
  • apart from asking questions here ?

I've been on a huge funk spree lately. Listening to lots of Sly, Herbie Hancock, Isaac Hayes, Commodores, Supertramp, Tower of Power, and of course Parliament/Funkadelic, etc...

you'll have to make a few suggestions in the music thread -
(a greater variety of music unlikely to be found anywhere smiley)

^ no lightbulbs here @ 106 pages long cheesy

Even skimming it for graphics is hard work ;-)
interesting though:

  • sold in 2011 in Germany - Gold in:   monitors=1,645 kilos; laptops=740;   smartphones=240
  • sold in 2011 in Germany - Silver in: monitors=6,090 kilos; laptops=3,100; smartphones=2,350

and the font (Times New Roman?) and paragraph formatting, they're certainly not easy to read on screen...


Is (one) part of the problem that people tend to want to get stuff as cheaply as possible?
I believe that that's the reason that after-sales service is suffering, at any rate.

I know I fit in that bracket - I want something, and I want it cheap. But you get burned that way - poor quality products that dont last long and you got to spend again.
And I do also want good quality - I check reviews and look at amazon etc customer reviews (in particular the one to three star ones) - mind you most of those are not about long-term performance.
197  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: facebook tracing on: April 23, 2015, 02:37:36 PM
thanks but your reply is very generic
how do I restrict that specific information to be revealed? (my exact location)

look at your FB settings, I would suspect.
I personally wouldnt trust FB with that kind of info, but that's another matter...
198  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Interesting "stuff" on: April 23, 2015, 03:52:39 AM

interesting :-)

on a lighter note, it reminded me of this one:

You think I’m a malformed, pathetic excuse for a font. Well think again, nerdhole, because I’m Comic Sans, and I’m the best thing to happen to typography since Johannes f***ing Gutenberg.

^eM became unusable for me a while back (hogging cpu). I gave up waiting for an update - and then I heard this news. So I'm using the 'bugware' Thunderbird - seems fine to me FWIW (not using IMAP with it though).
Will be interesting to see what they do for it.

This does sort of blur the lines though, between the standard and pro versions (€30 extra for Thunderbird?!)
