FWIW  If i was surfing, found DC, opened a topic and malware was blocked... I wouldn't return or recommend.  Which would be bad.

Agreed -- if you find any sign that there was a remotely linked image in a post or signature on the forum that was in any way connected with a remote non-dc server trying to connect with your computer, we would take swift action to fix that.
But what Seraphim points out is that it may have just been a coincidence that you got the alert while browsing the forum.

 New threads started: 1,300.
 New posts: 12,000 (number of those deleted as spam: 468).
 New members who joined: 13,600 (number of those banned for spamming: 700).

The important news to tell you about is that our big "New Apps for the New Year (NANY) 2015" event is fast approaching.  You can read all about it below, in the first section of the newsletter. We'd love to have your participation in it.

See you on the forum!

2. NANY 2015 Event (New Apps for the New Year)

Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year (browse previous year entries here).

There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world.  Everyone who participates gets a commemorative mug.  You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool.  It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever.



3. User-to-User: Your Input Requested

We love nothing more than having interesting discussions on our forum -- and we love when new people participate in the discussions.  In each newsletter we try to highlight a few topics that we think might interest casual readers and that are good candidates for making your first post.



4. Mouser's Software Updates

I've uploaded some updates to many of my large applications since the last newsletter.  As always, you can find the list of what's new both in the online help pages (linked from each program homepage) or in the forum thread about the application (also linked from each program homepage).



5. Skwire Empire Software Updates and New Releases

DC member skwire is one of the more prolific coders of utilities on our site -- he roams the coding snack request section and pounces like a jaguar when he finds something that catches his eye.  He's released a ton of updates to his software since the last newsletter, including some updates and a few brand new releases:



6. Coding Snacks, Mini-reviews, and other Member Projects

We love to keep up with projects that our members are working on, and hearing what our forum members think of software they use.  If you're working on something interesting -- let us know!



7. Website Discoveries, Debates, Essays, Discussions

What's new in cyberspace? What exciting new sites have been discovered by forum members?  What's the current hot topic and debate? Read on to find out..



8. Specific Software Discussions

Some noteworthy discussions about specific software applications on the forum since the last newsletter.



9. General Software Discussions

Some noteworthy general software discussions on the forum since the last newsletter.



10. Entertainment, Games, and Humour

Here's a collection of some diversionary web browsing links posted on the forum recently.



11. Developer's Corner

This section highlights some discussions that might be relevant for not just coders and developers, but also people interested in entrepreneurial issues.



12. Security News

There were so many security-related posts on the forum in the last month that we have a section of the newsletter devoted to the issue.



13. Linux and Hardware Hangout

While the lion's share of technical discussions on our forum involve Microsoft Windows software, hardware and linux threads are becoming increasingly common.

It means there is no attack or malware hosted on or coming from DonationCoder.
It could mean that you just happened to see these alerts while you happened to be browsing the DonatinCoder forum.

--

Another thing to check is if this alert pops up when you view certain posts on the forum -- it's always possible that someone has a photo in their signature or in a post that is linking to another site and that that site is pinging your machine when you load it.

106  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google's new Inbox powered by Gmail on: October 24, 2014, 12:56:27 PM
There are two things about this new project from google that I find offensive:

First, the obnoxiousness of calling it "Inbox". Only a company like google or apple, with sufficient marketing muscle, money and willingness to bully, could get away with using such a common generic term and trying to co-opt it to refer to their product.
Second, and much more obnoxious, is the fact that it can only be run on the google Chrome browser.  When Microsoft used to play these tricks to force people to adopt their tools and kill off competition, we decried it as evil.. Google seems to think the rules don't apply to them.

I'm not clear what you are saying you saw and what it is telling you that you encountered.
Can you be a bit more specific?

i have almost given up on firefox because of its slowdowns.
what eleman says is basically the only solution: restart firefox often.
there is no other solution.

Let's see -- if you just want to show the excerpt column in the main window (this should be done by default but it's possible that it isn't), then click onthe tiny cell in the grid header that's in the upper left and check the "Excerpt" checkbox:

115  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Donation Support Idea on: October 22, 2014, 12:00:16 PM
My suggestion: Keep it simple, tell them to donate directly to you.

It's hard enough getting donations - and its fun to get donations.

So just keep it simple and ask folks to donate to you, and you can decide after the fact how much you want to donate to RSPCA, DC, etc.

By participating in NANY you are helping DC enough  thumbs up

Wrong thread.  This is animal friends thread not silly humor thread. I will move it.

118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Must have firmware upgrade for Samsung 840 EVO SSDs on: October 21, 2014, 03:51:07 PM
These are some of the most popular SSDs sold in the last couple of years.

http://www.computerworld....ix-for-ssd-slowdowns.html

[attach=1]

"Samsung has issued a firmware fix for a bug on its popular 840 EVO triple-level cell SSD. The bug apparently slows read performance tremendously for any data more than a month old that has not been moved around on the NAND. Samsung said in a statement that the read problems occurred on its 2.5-in 840 EVO SSDs and 840 EVO mSATA drives because of an error in the flash management software algorithm. Some users on technical blog sites, such as Overclock.net, say the problem extends beyond the EVO line. They also questioned whether the firmware upgrade was a true fix or if it just covers up the bug by moving data around the SSD."

120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ad Muncher 5 will be free on: October 19, 2014, 09:32:30 PM
After reading this page where the author describes the move to free:
http://www.admuncher.com/free

Correct me if i'm wrong, but it's hard for me to read that as anything but a really good guy doing a good thing, and very much in the spirit of this site and deserving of our support, encouragement, cheers, and understanding.
This is a rough world and we can all become a little too cynical and pessimistic -- I know I can.

But let's support the small folks trying to do the right thing!
The cow may be a little scared to be free but he may find himself very happily running around in the orchard soon, so let's try to send him some good vibes and tell Cody to go hang out with him.

i like the idea of a program that can analyze a corpus and then identify when you have two many of the same "rare" words in a sentence, or too many "ultrarare" words in a document/paragraph.

if its not going to pop up when mouse touches edge, how would you want to tell it to show when you wanted it?

it is a cool idea.
