Just thought I would share a link that is sorta handy to bookmark in case you can't access DoCo for any reason and it seems like the site is down...

Yes I know there are other services that do this, but meh...I got bored smiley

I'm sure it's fine but you don't want to think you are calling your bank and instead call a fraudster and give out personal information. That's why I was asking. smiley Just research the phone number before you call it.

Great point from Justice there...If you are calling somebody who will require personal info, perhaps Google the local rate number that you have found and see if it brings anything up smiley
1353  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Premium Number To Local Rate Number! *(UK)* on: March 12, 2012, 09:23:26 AM
How do you find out when calling an 0870 number what the equivalent local one is? AFAIK it doesn't show up on your phone. So if it is not possible how are these phone numbers added / verified?

No idea to be honest, but I managed to get a LOAD of local rate numbers for the Post Office Customer Service Dept. using that site...Perhaps people find out who owns the 0845, then searches the Phonebook or something for it?...Pure guessing lol

Welcome to the SAYNOTO0870.COM website

The site lists many well known companies, and their equivalent geographical numbers.

 Alternatives listed for 0500, 0800, 0808, 0842, 0843, 0844, 0845, 0870, 0871, 0872 and 0873 numbers.
The SAYNOTO0870.COM web site has been featured on BBC's Working Lunch TV programme, Five's The Gadget Show, BBC Radio 2 (Jeremy Vine Show), BBC Radio Norfolk, and also appeared in many newspapers & publications, including The Guardian, Which Magazine, Readers Digest, and many more.

Many people don't realise that there are many phone providers offering cheaper calls to standard telephone numbers (those beginning with 01, 02 or 03), which don't apply to 0842, 0843, 0844, 0845, 0870, 0871, 0872 or 0873 telephone numbers. - Please see the links page and click on Cheapest Call Provider for price details. This shows that by using multiple providers, you can reduce your call cost on standard telephone numbers to as little as 5p fixed cost (regardless of duration), whereas the cheapest provider to 0871 numbers during the day that I am aware of charges 10p/min (+ 12.5p connection fee [with BT]) to call.

 Worst still some companies that use these numbers are actually receiving a cut of the phone call costs.

 If you have an 'inclusive landline calls' phone package, then it is very rare that 0844, 0845, 0870, and 0871 numbers are all included in your 'free minutes' allocation, unlike normal numbers. Many mobile phone packages also exclude freephone 0500, 0800 and 0808 numbers for your bundled minutes. BT and some other companies are starting to include 0845 and 0870, but this only applies to certain packages, and does not apply to 0844 and 0871 numbers.

Many companies advertise a separate number that can be used when calling from abroad - This usually begins in the format +44 - There is nothing to stop you using this number from the UK (as it is a normal rate telephone call), and will be included in any inclusive minutes provided by your landline or mobile phone provider. Many others will give you a standard number if you ask.

 This site is all about listing these numbers, saving you money, without having to pay additional charges. To get started and find a particular number, please click on the 'Search to find an alternative number' link at the top of the page.

 Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the site.  Please continue to add any new numbers as and when you find them.

Very handy website indeed! - I use Skype for my outbound calls and I ONLY purchase a local rate (UK Numbers) subscription for it...mainly because having a landline phone actually plugged in, tempts me to call mobiles and such, and end up running up huge phone bills...

This website is VERY handy for those of you who have phone contracts, or use Skype + Local Rate Subscription and cannot call anything other than a local rate number (01, 02 or 03)

All phone numbers seem to be added by users, and maintained by everyone else, so when a number is dead, it will be reported and updated by other users...very handy indeed.

That link only seems to mention things about potential scam WEBSITES and nothing about SOFTWARE

However, you might be pleased to know, your not the only one who is irritated by this:

https://www.google.co.uk/...me+file+appears+malicious

The above link brings up a whole bunch of other posts about this...most seem to have started around Feb of this year, so maybe from whatever update was released in Feb? (Not a Chrome user, so don't know)

If your still PO'ed about it...I'll say to you, what I say to everyone who has a problem with FF or Chrome...

The problem facing charges against places like the PirateBay, is that .torrent files themselves are NOT illegal, and in fact, many respected developers (Mainly games as they are large files) use them so their community can take the bulk of the bandwidth required to host such large files, and receive such massive amounts of download requests (Doing so can greatly reduce hosting costs).

Yo Dawg. We heard you like torrents, so we put a torrent in your torrent so you can torrent while you torrent.

They have been donated by some company to a charity I help with

IF you're working with a registered non-profit or charity (i.e. 501(c)(3) status non-profit or library ), and involved with their technology, you'll want to be aware of these guys.

Microsoft works with this group too. Good source for super-inexpensive software, etc. Thmbsup

 Cool




Wow...Bookmarked!

If the machines are OEM, you may get lucky with:

C:\Windows\options\cabs

Windows setup files were frequently kept there in the 9x days.

Just a thought.

None of the machines actually have an OS on them Sad


On another note...if anybody has some old tech (Doesn't really matter what it is, or how old it is, just so long as it works) and wants it to go to a good cause (and also willing to package and send), let me know.

I will inform you via PM of which charity this is, their Charity number, and any other information you need smiley

Btw, this is in the UK (Just so any kind donors from Abroad are aware) ^_^
1362  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Obtaining Windows OS ISO's on: March 05, 2012, 04:55:16 PM
Theres around 200-300 machines
Hm, so we won't be seeing you here for a while ohmy

Oh trust me...I'll be here cheesy

I don't expect this to be a fun week though haha

ok next time I will jotti.

If you get any more reports of this, please let us know ASAP

It is NEVER bad to report anything like this, here smiley

Thanks again smiley
1364  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Obtaining Windows OS ISO's on: March 05, 2012, 04:44:36 PM
Yeah that's the plan...Linux on those without COA's and Winblows windows on those with them.

Silly question, but how many machines? And what are they being used for?

Theres around 200-300 machines...I expect only around 50 of those to have a COA.

They have been donated by some company to a charity I help with, and I have been tasked with formatting, re-installing, and checking every single machine lol - The machines will then be either donated to those who cannot afford a computer, or sold for a very low price to those willing to donate a small sum (and also could otherwise not afford) for it smiley

I don't really want the hassle of calling microsoft and trying to repeat 50 serial keys to an Indian call center, who's staff barely understand what your saying...

If needs must, and M$ don't just 'Provide' the 30 day trial stuff for this, ill just use other methods smiley

Yeah, I am 99.99% sure this is a false positive.


Thank you for pointing this out smiley

Did you download Direct from here at DonationCoder? - If so, please provide the link you used.

NB: If it WAS from here at DC, then there is a 99.99% that this, is a false-positive
1369  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Obtaining Windows OS ISO's on: March 05, 2012, 03:49:56 PM
Anybody know where I could obtain 'LEGALLY'  ISO's of Windows 98 and XP?

These will be installed, ONLY on machines with a COA label attached to the tower.

If possible, I would like the base OS (No Service Packs) purely because I have had issues where a COA is licenced for SP1, and you try to install the full OS with SP2 bundled...I would much rather install service packs separately due to this.

Thanks in advance cheesy

Are you people speaking English?
 embarassed

Press Start, Type 'msconfig' (without the '') and hit enter...choose the boot tab...and if you see "Windows Vista" simply press "Delete" on it smiley - I dunno if this will cause any errors with your system though so, somebody else may wanna confirm this for you smiley
1372  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to remove Windows.old? on: March 04, 2012, 04:33:51 PM
check in msconfig, see if its left a boot option in there
1373  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to remove Windows.old? on: March 04, 2012, 02:58:54 PM
Boot into a Live version of any Linux build, locate the folder, eradicate the folder, reboot into winblows windows?

Worth a shot if nothing else smiley

In the end, I told him to add a message on his site, that says it is best viewed in ANYTHING other than Firefox.

Agree. I find myself using Opera more and more.

Been using Opera for years and just cannot find a viable alternative for every-day use.

The ONLY thing I use Firefox for, is Netflix, purely because it won't actually let me use Opera for watching shows, and I am certainly not going to use IE for that task lol
1375  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Anyone else noticed this? on: March 03, 2012, 11:20:44 AM
Ok. This is what I'm talking about. Closed FF. Then this weirdness just happened again when I opened FF:
 (see attachment in previous post)
Wasn't doing it before.  undecided
This is probably unrelated, and I'm going to start a new thread...
but ever since the crazy firefox versions have come out, it's been a pain in the butt to keep things working smoothly.  I'm not saying it's FF, it just feels like it.

I had this discussion with a friend of mine the other day...he was asing why the website I made for him 3 weeks ago, now does not render properly in Firefox (Even though it did when it was launched) - I explained to him, that keeping up with Firefox changes was just not worth the effort seeing as they seem to change how everything is viewed on every new release...as a developer, that is VERY irritating and just seems to be a complete waste of time...

In the end, I told him to add a message on his site, that says it is best viewed in ANYTHING other than Firefox.
