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)
77  DonationCoder.com 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.

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.

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...
85  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?!)

btw Kingsoft Pro compares to Softmaker Pro pricewise:

  • does Kingsoft have any comparison page between versions?
  • can you use free version commercially? (I presume not but couldnt find any comparison)
90  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Feature request : Shortcut key to re-establish clipboard chain on: April 22, 2015, 03:27:06 PM
Is that on Windows 8.1 Armando?

I've been having recurring problems copying text on 8.1 - but it usually works after a few attempts (and I dont use the machine very seriously so dont pay a whole lot of attention to things).
91  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Softmaker Office: **90%+** Discount!!!! Offer Expires Feb5 6pm(?) EST on: April 22, 2015, 10:17:54 AM
So I will want to try the spreadsheet module and compare it to Kingsoft.

go for it Tao !
It would be very interesting to hear a comparison thumbs up

(I'm very happy with Textmaker's compatibility with Word - but couldnt really comment beyond that.)

^ you have to give an email address, they send a serial number.
Current beta is only valid till April 30, but I presume there will be a new beta by then.
93  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Latest FARR Release 2.221.01 BETA - April 22, 2015 on: April 22, 2015, 06:07:50 AM
  • [Feature] On History Options you can now choose to have FARR automatically add all applications that you launch outside of FARR (that have foreground windows), automatically added to FARR launch history; this makes them visible in main window on display, and makes them faster to find.

this is great help (e.g. for new portable apps)  thumbs up

@superboyac, persuaded me to go for it thumbs up smiley

(and FWIW, the link in OP to your Software List seems to lead to a dead end)

That was an amazing 'temperature' rise from yesterday to today Kiss
96  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The problem with text compare tools - similar, in database compare tools on: April 21, 2015, 08:09:07 AM
FWIW there is a post about the topic here (dc link: scroll down to section "II" for some suggestions/links).
He does talk about Beyond Compare's capabilities re moved text in that, or maybe the previous post but I found it pretty hard to follow on a quick read - I dont *think* it has it (they are long and winding posts).
97  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: open websites inside a folder from windows explorer on: April 21, 2015, 06:03:37 AM
But I received this message (see screenshot) and i don't know how to do ...

Ctrl+C will (usually) copy the text of Windows' error messages.
You could then try translating.

The video from EFF on this page:
https://fight215.org/?&am...&source=20150420video
helped me understand what's going on (have to admit I didnt follow any of the links above embarassed )

Also details on what to say to your representative, even a link for us non-US people (you can tweet).

2a & 3a sound great thumbs up

-----------------

[4a] sorry, I'm still confused here
How about this scenario:

  • a) I start the clock on a task
  • b) I stop it for a break
  • c) start it again
  • d) take a break and forget to stop it, so when I come back I stop it, and:
  • e) I modify it manually (or manually using the buttons) to substract my break time

so the total would be (a to b) plus (c to d) minus (time adjusted in e)
-
Is that correct?

--------------------

4b / 5 / 6 sound great thumbs up
