Oh my god, I love super long piers!! That's awesome. Thanks for showing that. smiley

We have one in the Bay Area, no longer functional unfortunately, but it used to be 3.5 miles long! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkeley_Pier

- Oshyan

Honestly...I thought 1.33Miles was enough to walk down the pier haha, couldn't imagine walking almost 3x that haha - Worth it though on the Southend one...there is a lovely restaurant at the end, a little ice-cream parlor and the Life Boat Station (With a gift shop). You could get a train to the end of the pier instead of walking, but...where's the fun in that?! tongue

Why close it when I still have a question?
My Norton Startup Manager says ProcessTamer is on its 'start on boot' list, but PTs 'front end' says it's not running at boot, and I have to manually click the Desktop icon to make its icon appear in System Tray. My OS is Win 7 32-bit.

Because this was a topic from 2005...about the GUI of PT...wouldn't asking your question in your own thread have been a better idea?...chances are, mouser doesn't receive notifications for a topic THIS old anymore...so your chances of getting an answer to a question that has nothing to do with this old topic, is minimal...

I'm looking for any tips for how to cope with dial-up internet speeds Sad
(Connection has been bad for a while but took a dive on Friday, was gone completely this afternoon, is at a snails pace this evening.)

Firefox doesnt even seem to have a stop-page-loading buttons any more...

1) I remember someone here talking here (I think not too long ago) about a text based browser i.e. it just showed text  - any ideas there?

2) or something that stopped images from loading -- but allowed you to choose to load an image -- that would probably be ideal.

FWIW, Gmail in the browser often works with the basic html interface, even when no other sites load properly.

TIA smiley

Try Opera, it has a "Turbo" function which worked VERY well for me when using horrific 3G internet, it also highly compresses images so they load MUCH faster. smiley

I wish, me and my Mrs just took a walk down the Sea Front and then came back through town and half the shops have people queuing up outside them for Black Friday Sales...Last I checked, we live in England...why the HELL do we have this crap now?  wallbash wallbash wallbash wallbash wallbash wallbash

Because the videos posted online afterwards are (un)funny! smiley

Isn't this the day that Black Friday Death Counter website goes online? (I fail to remember the link) o.O

Scares me if I am honest.

I live in England.  We don't have thanksgiving.

You should be thankful for that.  No "Black Friday" store stampede either I bet. 

To those who celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving.  smiley  btw turkeys, don't blame me.  I never liked eating your kind.  I once opted for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich over stuffed turkey and mashed potatoes.  Just so the survivors know.  Wink

If we use Ad Blockers...is that classified as piracy?  I mean...These websites that serve ads see that as their primary form of income and a way of you paying them for seeing that content...but if I cannot see those ads...then am I technically stealing content?

FWIW some sites do say exactly that - and refuse to load if they detect an ad blocker at work.

I voluntarily disable ad blocking on many sites I visit where I know they're depending on ad revenue for their continued operation. However. I'd be happier paying a reasonable subscription fee and skip the ads since 'offer-acceptance-tender' is a lot cleaner a way to do business than a quid pro quo. That said, I'll also stop visiting them if their ad stream becomes obnoxious. There's an implied social contract to this arrangement. I'm good with that.

Personally I also do unblock ads on some websites (Such as Imgur) which I use a lot and I accept that they have to cover the costs somehow.  I also actively click any ads that I find remotely interesting on order to send a few pennies their way.

I would do the same here at DC if ads were served if I am honest smiley
63  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Thoughts on "Piracy". on: November 25, 2014, 12:09:30 PM
Further to what I said above:

Piracy, for me at least, is something I do.  Yes I do pay for a lot of games, movies, music and software (I do enjoy having a physical collection) but (again, I can only speak for myself) 99% f those purchases have been made only after first pirating.  Some would call listening to music via Youtube as piracy...because the content creator isn't selling you the music and isn't getting any income from it (AbBlocker = No Revenue for that person).

That brings me to another point...

If we use Ad Blockers...is that classified as piracy?  I mean...These websites that serve ads see that as their primary form of income and a way of you paying them for seeing that content...but if I cannot see those ads...then am I technically stealing content?

Please please please someone with artistic abilities make a custom mug design. Thmbsup

I'm not completely convinced by this, but if anyone likes it I can tweak.

I like it but Cody seems to be missing part of his tail and hand Sad  Also...not entirely turned on by the choice of font...but that might just be me xD

Please be sure to have someone available to take notes next time you get stoned.. Wink

Sand Moose made me laugh like crazy tbh hahaha

Yeah, I was trying to follow the 'Stoner Logic' (having had some experience with it in the past...), and the first few almost made sense. But when I got to that one it was just a total swan dive off the deep end into WTF land. Tehehe!!

I think they go in order of how much he smoked haha...I have been in this situation a few times myself Wink

Why is the topic "v\View" ... is it a typo, or did I miss something?

The fact remains that more piracy leads to higher revenues. (In the content industry.)

Agreed...because...for me at least...If I didn't pirate first...then the chances of me buying a game, movie, or payware software...are close to zero tongue

I don't know where the notion of 'piracy' leaves off and 'entitlement' begins.

I decided it was better for my inner self if I just didn't go there.

  • If I want something, or use something, I'll buy it.  Always.
  • I'll always prefer to sample or trial some things first. But if that's not possible, the burden of my satisfaction rests entirely on the shoulders of the seller.
  • If I don't like it - or feel it was misrepresented by the seller - I'll return it and ask for my money back.
  • If I can't have a refund, the person I paid is welcome to what they got. It's the last they'll ever get from me - and I'll  bad mouth them to everyone I know plus anybody else who will listen.
  • Conversely, if I do like what I get (and the way I was treated) I'll freely recommend them and their product(s) whenever asked, or when it's otherwise appropriate.

I make it a point to always act in good faith. And I make a far better friend and admirer than I do an adversary.

I think the same can be said of most of us here at DoCo.

Wise businesses know that.

Don't get me wrong...if I could afford to purchase software or games or whatever on the basis that I "may" like them...then I would...but quite simply, I do not have the money to do that, nor can I say that I could check all the features of Software within however long they are willing to give me a refund for...hell...Half the time I will install something and not even use it for 3 months...by which point I would be completely screwed.

I am not trying to advocate piracy..more...give my reasoning behind why I do it smiley

And beware, in this forum, there are unfortunately some people who happily take the side of governments - of governments of ANY mindset.

Where did you get this idea from?  We support freely expressing whatever viewpoint you want to... this statement makes this a lot of advise tempered by unwarranted negativity.  If anything, most here are anti-government control, or lean that way.

Clearly he never visited the basement.



Getting back on topic...would a software publisher be a method you could use?  Surely publishers have in house legal teams who would know all of this and would make sure you conform to regulations and laws and then just take a % of the sale price for every download? (I am taking a stab in the dark here)

My very quick input:

The design:  Horrific.
The Profile Layout: I think my eyes are bleeding.
The Features: Nothing Interesting.

My consensus:

Yet another social network I won't be joining.
