Very minor-trivial-unimportant stuff cheesy

1) check for updates is broken here -
nothing happens for a while, then I get:
---------------------------
tiffInfoGUI
---------------------------
Version data could not be downloaded.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

2) just a suggestion:
in the 'About' box, instead of linking to the OP in this thread, why not link to your first posting of the software?

i wouldn't mind having a GUI for the tiffinfo program. who knows, it might come in handy one day.

Here you go:  tiffInfoGUI download
 (see attachment in previous post)

Me make booboo in previous post try, forgot to read fine print about file types allowed.

So here's the link to a .pdf file of 46 pictures you've probably never seen before.

I'm confused -
there's no problem adding PDF files to posts - or is it too big?
Is there a link to a site with the photos?

good video -- made me want to finally get a smartphone. Only half-kidding ;-) that whip app was grrrrrreat fun cheesy
Messes nicely with the apple insignia --
but that takes away from it imo, because it's a universal thing - not just apple.

Cost is $39/79. Upgrade from v.3 upwards is $29/39

FWIW -- these prices for MainType standard/pro run until 21 November -- normally they $10 more.

34  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Latest Avast deleting Firefox add-ons on: November 18, 2014, 09:00:23 AM
But I still don't know why some of my programs are missing from the "Programs and Features" in the control panel, and what the consequences of that (if any) are. Should I be worried about that? Scrivener and Dragon seem to run as they should, so does it matter that they are no longer listed in P&F?

I'm no expert there (anyone else got an idea/opinion?)

  • Does the problem persist after rebooting?
  • Do they show up in an alternative uninstaller? (e.g. Revo, or MyUninstaller from nirsoft)
35  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Latest Avast deleting Firefox add-ons on: November 18, 2014, 08:24:58 AM
Wrote this below, but you seem to have solved the problem (?)

Personally didnt have any problems with the recent MS updates (Win7), but probably worth doing a search about it.
Maybe doing a system restore would be easier than all this reinstalling?
And installing the MS updates one by one (oh the joy!).

Re uninstalling anti-virus, it's probably always best that one use their dedicated uninstall utility. I guess the idea is that they dont want anyone e.g. a virus, to be easily able to uninstall/remove their software.
36  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox windows and CPU slow-downs and restarts on: November 18, 2014, 04:51:39 AM
Firefox got really bad in the last couple of weeks here - tabs became unclickable, the one to the right would get focus; had to restart very often as it would eventually just sieze up & the plugin container would crash (Flash would also crash occasionally, but that's always been a problem I find).
So I started it without plugins and it worked fine [Click the menu button =>, click help => and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.... Firefox will start up with the Firefox Safe Mode dialog.]

So I restarted and disabled all the add-ons I thought I could do without.
It's working very nicely so far, the usual memory consumption, will have to wait see how long it takes to goe overboard. CPU usage is almost nil (tbh I didnt check what it was before).

I didnt bother trying to figure out exactly which add-on was causing the problem/s.
(BTW is there any way of exporting a list of add-ons?)


EDIT// Version 33.1

FWIW
I moved from 32 to 64bit:

After installation, I was given the option to remove the 32 bit version -I was unsure so I kept it.
Next reboot it was back to the 32bit version again.
When I closed that, and launched the 64bit version, I was again given the option to uninstall the 32bit version, and went with it this time. Careful what you click during install - the option to delete previous profiles (or whatever it calls saved jobs) was a bit lowkey for my taste.

Yes, in fairness it also goes on here (Germany). I have come across people working 'ein-euro-jobs' (€1 per hour) for a 'social' project (good cause etc.) but apparently there is a lot of abuse - basically gettting them to do work that would otherwise be paid at a 'normal' rate.
Germany does have low enemployment but an ever increasing amount of 'working poor':
2005 - 4.8% of workers "likely to experience poverty"
2010 - 7.8%
(source: Reuters) Insight: The dark side of Germany's jobs miracle
There's a lot of people here working multiple part-time jobs to survive. And survive you can - you have to have health insurance here, but if you're on a low wage you pay less. They are restricting this insurance though e.g. I am unable to get on that type health insurance myself (no matter how much or little I might earn). Food prices are the amongst the cheapest in Europe. (Yaay Lidl Aldi etc undecided - it's a vicious circle of cheaper stuff > lower wages > cheaper stuff > - and for a lot of people it's going downwards).

OK, thanks Supe! BTW, mine only checks manually; can't find any setting to auto-check for updates. Same for you?

Jim

yeah, oddly it doesnt even seem to notify of updates.
42  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Mandatory Work Activity (UK) - Stupidity Beyond Belief. [DEBATE] on: November 17, 2014, 01:28:01 PM
Sounds about par for the course for the UK? (Not trying to be offensive - but looking at successive UK governments' records does not inspire.)
Prime basement material, this is Stephen ;-)

well under Windows 7 I'm still using Codestuff Starter for startup stuff (hasnt been updated in a while) -
it doesnt allow me to disable MBAM,
but it does show 3 x mbam exe's under Processes:

gui
scheduler
service


Then under Services there's the

Why not make contact with the source?

Heh it was just a silly joke. An Anti-Malware program that lists itself as Malware ...  tongue

Douglas H. is the guy into self referential stuff : )

might not be the first time even cheesy
but note that my comment was for Superboyac - that he ask MBAM directly (I could have made that clearer ;-])

Blast from the past (1978). Genya Ravan, a lady who set the tone and look - and raised the bar - for a lot of what came after.

Not a video proper. But still a great song. Here's Genya and Lou Reed doing Aye Co'lorado from her Urban Desire album:
...

thanks for that tip - there's not much of her stuff on YT - and I didnt actually get to hear that one (I've been seeing "This video is not available" a lot lately :-/)
But I did get to hear some of her other stuff - e.g. a great version of Coney Island Baby (I get the impression it's recent)
