I think the cause of the malaise is much simpler.  Think back to when you were a kid skipping down the street.  You were happy for no particular reason.  In fact it was your default state of mind.  Adults smiled to see you skipping along so care free.

Then one day as you skipped along you encountered a tall man in a gray suit with gray felt hat.  He gave you such a disgusted look.  You slow down in reaction.  Then the gray man says "You are tool old to be skipping" all mean and nasty.

[...]

The only way to turn back the clock on the downfall [...] is to go back in time and skip down the street no matter what anyone thinks or says about it!

sounds good to me thumbs up

Thanks cmpm,
FWIW I'd be slow to buy anything from that site for various reasons -

  • too far away (Hong Kong)  in case there is a problem
  • outside EU, customs & excise may get involved with the delivery
  • most [many] of their products are no-brand
  • I looked at routers - one on offer had a review saying first they couldnt find the firmware, when they did, it was only in Chinese
  • ...

81  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Create a modern version of Lotus Agenda on: August 01, 2014, 01:37:11 PM
I dont know the origin of InfoQube (IQ), but believe it's inspired by Ecco Pro.
Pierre Landry, the developer, (PPLandry here on dc) has recently 'discovered' Lotus Agenda, and is looking to add some of it's features to IQ.

I'll post a link to this thread in the IQ one, so I'm sure he'll checkin here to see if you have any suggestions.

Quote
I never owned a license of Agenda, but as it is now public domain (download link here), I installed it on an XP machine.
 
Apart from a antique DOS UI, and as with Ecco Pro and InfoQube, it is build on the following 3 principles :

    Information is stored in items
    Items can be assigned user-defined field values (categories in Agenda)
    Views show a sub-set of all items in the database. Users can customize / create views. Views can have a few columns which show field values

In my spare time (!), I plan to play with it, read about it, and add some of its features to InfoQube.
If there are Agenda users out there, please feel free to share with us what Agenda killer features you'd like to see implemented in InfoQube.

82  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.

84  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Celluloid vs digital: what are the REAL differences? on: July 31, 2014, 02:36:50 PM
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.
85  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Celluloid vs digital: what are the REAL differences? on: July 31, 2014, 02:36:00 PM
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)

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)

98  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).
