77  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Destroying your hard drive is the only way to stop this super-advanced malware on: February 26, 2015, 03:57:04 AM
Now that it has been discovered, I should think antivirus software could be written to at least detect it in action, followed by some kind of 'fix', possibly involving a redesigning of the HD firmware?

well, going by what's already been said...

Quote
Because the OS normally doesn't provide low level access to drive hardware to even an administrative user.

It's not just that -- if the malware tampers with the HARD DRIVE FIRMWARE, it can essentially make the hard drive return fake data, etc.  Even with the lowest level access to the hard drive, the hard drive firmware can hide any changes.  The only way to fix would be to reflash the hard drive firmware -- and it may very well be that the firmware changes make reflashing impossible via software.
There is no defense against this.

Its like a rootkit- that once it gets into your hard drive the only way out is to replace the drive controller with a known-good version and then very carefully salvage data without letting the virus be reactivated.

^Wondering is the problem with S3 or the software (or both)


I use S3 with Snycovery - but had already created the S3 account or bucket or whateveritis years ago using (I think) JungleDisk. So it was no problem AFAICR.

Yeah, ToDoList is a great piece of software - I haven't used it in years, but it seems to have just gotten better.

Did you double-post there Contro - or was the second post meant to be about the Franklin planner?

hi TyrionBean,
I reckon the easiest (and probably the only) approach would be to change the hotkey that FARR uses - see:
Options>Hotkeys

Any PIM that supports the Franklin Planner methodology of prioritization would support what Tomos was suggesting.

Can you suggest the best one of them free ?

Best Regards

do a search - I presume you're looking for one that has good Spanish ;-)
Any PIM would do what I suggested - I dont know anything about "Franklin Planner methodology of prioritization" (maybe you should research that too?)
EDIT// how about ToDoList?

82  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Conditional diary on: February 22, 2015, 11:58:52 AM
Why dont you just do a simple hierarchical tree in some PIM e.g.

Monday
-- AA
---- aa1
---- aa2
---- aa3
-- or BB
---- bb1
---- bb2
---- bb3
-- or CC
---- cc1
---- cc2
---- cc3

you plan to do AA, but if BB happens, you follow that branch; if CC happens you follow that, etc. and in most IM's you can rate the alternatives in terms of importance.
83  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Conditional diary on: February 22, 2015, 11:55:03 AM

does looks interesting, but not free - €20 / $25
Also, if you want it to rate e.g. car prices - you have to (1) add in the price per car, and then (2) manually add rating for price for each car - I would have expected it to be able to figure out the rating by comparing the prices...

An article on IPS from makeuseof.com -
3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy A Cheap IPS Monitor
and
they make a couple of IPS recommendations here (but not in connection with gaming).

www.prad.de does good monitor reviews (but no longer do English translations).

Confused here... You say:
'no scrolling bars in the window I wanted to capture' - so how does SC get the screenshot?
Does it move the window around?
or can it actually take a screenshot of stuff that is not visible on the screen tellme

FWIW - It was a beautiful song.
yes, a great version too - by Cherish The Ladies


This one is pretty downbeat, a gut-wrencher really :-) great cinematography though (I always want to say photography) and good music - it's actually a music video, but more of a video with music - oh just watch it and figure it out for yourselves ;-)

I have two queries:
   # can I save sort in a tab - in particular, I'd like saved clips in the "Sticky" tab to show Alphabetically and Ascending (it defaults to by date and descending on restart)

well, I figured this one out - in the menu:
Tools >Manage Quick Views (Ctrl+U)

[attachthumb=#]

I changed the options in both modes and saved thumbs up

_______________________
  # can I modify the copy key? e.g. Ctrl+Shift+C? (background: I'm only using EthervaneEcho for one project) - I did look in Settings but might have missed something...

Didnt have any luck with this one - I see I can save clips in plain text using Ctrl+Shift+C.
But dont see any way of changing the regular copy key combo...

Backup4all are offering discounts on upgrades from all older versions - it's not clear how much the discounts are, and you have to give them your key to get a quote as it's version dependent.

My copy was bought in 2007. I was offered:

Quote
Upgrade from Backup4all Professional 3 to
Backup4all Professional 5

   Quantity:1
   Price: $21.00
Total: $21.00

the full price for the pro version is currently ~$50 so that seems like a reasonable offer.

Embedded images are disabled here in gmail - they show as attachments below the mail (cant remember if that the default behaviour, or if I changed a setting for security).

Thank you for your site. I have been visiting silently for some time but have not participated until now. I am a student studying to be an engineer in an American university. My command of English is ok but not colloquial since it is not my native language. I will do my best to make myself understandable.
welcome to dc vortext smiley

perfectly clear English btw thumbs up
(if you have trouble with any colloquialisms, just ask!)

93  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Three articles on what kind of high quality (gaming) monitor you should buy on: February 18, 2015, 04:05:48 AM
Yeah, having an IPS panel, I would not want to go back to anything else.
Oddly, my monitor allows only 59 *or* 60 for refresh rate (again, after disabling refresh rates that do not apply to your monitor in Windows).

IIRC older (CRT) monitors allowed higher refresh rates but I think for some reason they were more necessary there.

(Equally well fits in the silly humour thread, eh?)
yes Grin thumbs up

what's her accent - sounds like Montana?
Remember that Coen brother's film set in Montana? I cant remember the name, hang on - Fargo - the same accent - it's funny cause it's reminiscent of a Wexford accent at times (SE-most county in Ireland). They say 'Hun' there as well. I remember someone claiming the word came from one of the Scandanavian languages (and is not a short version of 'honey'), which might make sense in terms of Montana - with Wexford, it was a long time since the vikings visited (8th-10thC), but many did settle in Ireland, and there are still signs of their presence in place-names, and surnames - and possibly in the language (I'm no expert here).
95  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Conditional diary on: February 18, 2015, 03:41:14 AM
I think more info would be helpful Contro:

  • what do you use already?
  • what are the limitations of what you use already?


Sounds like you need some sort of PIM with calendar?

Using this again - what a beautifully made piece of software Kiss
Am using it together with mouser's CHS without problems.

I have two queries:
   # can I save sort in a tab - in particular, I'd like saved clips in the "Sticky" tab to show Alphabetically and Ascending (it defaults to by date and descending on restart)
   # can I modify the copy key? e.g. Ctrl+Shift+C? (background: I'm only using EthervaneEcho for one project) - I did look in Settings but might have missed something...

TIA for any help!
97  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: I've not been happy with Macrium Reflect Free, and perhaps their paid versions.. on: February 16, 2015, 05:21:07 PM
So this is the background of my hyper-sensitiveness when it comes to people saying - perhaps even inadvertently - a thread of mine is "OT", i.e. should not even have been published to begin with. (Cf. funny cat pics in a programmers' and sw users' forum - you know I accepted these being OT.) Perhaps even they did NOT say it, but it was just me that READ that INTO it:

As for the "OT", please read again, above:

"^ I was going to say quite off-topic *and* well worth a new thread, but the thread seems to be already fairly off-topic

+1, combined with the rewritten title and small-essay size post made me TL;DR; (again) huh"

As implied above, I'm beyond any acceptance of such "+1" when it comes to requests to silence me or sayings that I should not have mentioned some subject (length criticism being another story). But tomos is a non-native speaker, as I am, and it all was a language problem (again, with the above, totally unbearable outliner forum background and non-knowing who are those "doubly-writers" there and here):

In correct English, it should very probably have read, "but the thread seems to have gone [and not: to be] already fairly off-topic" - the "already" should have told me better, but in light of the above, I overlooked that in spite of re-reading it thrice - I'm verry sorry ; obviously, from my outliner forum experience and from some people furtively writing there and here, I now see "enemies" where there are none.

Hi Peter,
I am a native (English) speaker, but I was careless with my words there: as you speculated, what I wrote should have read:
the thread has already gone off-topic.
In my defense and OTOH the other interpretation makes no sense: to say that a whole thread is off-topic is meaningless - so construing it as an attack on you + your thead is the last thing I would have expected.

Sincere apologies for any misunderstanding!

^ I was going to say quite off-topic *and* well worth a new thread, but the thread seems to be already fairly off-topic, so I'll follow suit:

For small amounts of data, I would love what I would call a manual sync programme - i.e. one that would compare source and dest. and allow you lots of flexibility in what you choose to do/copy/sync, maybe even an option to auto-rename older files. Not sure does Beyond Compare go there (they offer folder compare and sync but I havent tried it).

Preference, I would like one allows flexibility in the drive assignment of the target drive, to be overridden at the time of backup.
yes,
that would be very nice for quick and dirty backups to USB sticks. I dont think Syncovery (my backup programme) offers this.

Ironcially:
they've been emailing people suggesting this security-check. I initially marked the email as spam cause it looked suspiciously like a pishing mail:
Click this link [to a completely unknown destination with a very long url] - and be sure and have your password ready...

Ironic bacause they were promoting "Safer Internet Day":
remember to always have your password ready - no matter who asks (or where that link leads) :-)
