i find myself in rare disagreement with jibz here.
i think the closed nature of winrar is a very bad thing, and in a field like compression where there are so many good open source compression algorithms, i think it's a bad thing that the rar format has become so widely used.  it's like mp3, we get stuck in this trap of a proprietary format.

hmm,
i include a picture from my system tray - i have used it for maybe 5-10 years without issue, but i only use it one particular way so who knows..

i think zaine tried to advocate for the open format 7-zip in his review, didn't he?

i appreciate superboyac comments in this thread -
more and more as we go into the future it is the user interface that represents the bulk of a program.
no matter how "powerful" a program is, if it's hard to do the common stuff, many of us don't want to spend a week learning how to script something.  it does go to show you that you can't simply grab the program people call the best or most powerful, especially if you want something that is designed for smooth ease of use.

yeah, he says so on his page; there is probably another free app somewhere that does..
if you use classic mode display (as i much prefer), then it looks perfect.

in the old days of ads, people got rich off such stuff.
now sites like google aggressively punish such behavior.  not only will you lose money instead of making it but google has been banning sites for this, and people are using these ad clickers now to attack each other and get each other banned ! crazy world.

superboyac , have you tried mp3tag yet? i'm curious to hear your view of that.

it sounds like something got currupted with the clip database..
is it a brand new install or has it suddently started happening with an old install?

can you check the system tray and make sure you haven't launched clipboard help+spell twice? - i noticed this can cause strange behavior.

welcome veekay.

in fact you sum up exactly why i still use winzip for 99% of my needs:

My favorite remains WinZip, mainly because of its excellent GUI (especially its tight Explorer integration),
and more so since the Zip format is the the most popular archiving format around.

right - this tool is mainly to show you how much power something is using so you can figure out which things you don't want to leave on more than you have to.
26992  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Been asked a MILLION times...Internet explorer on: December 27, 2005, 12:37:06 PM
its only happening when you start up firefox?
can you connect to the internet without starting up a browser and see if it happens then?
do you use a special isp-provided thing to connect to the internet? they might build it into that as a way of forcing you to see some ads.  what are the pop ups ads for? that might yield a clue.
are you sure its not the homepage that your browser is set for?
26993  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Been asked a MILLION times...Internet explorer on: December 27, 2005, 12:04:54 PM
you're saying that as soon as you connect to the internet you are getting the popups even though you arent using internet explorer itself?

if so then it does sound like you have some kind of advert software that managed to install iself.
you need to run a proper spyware/adware checker like ad-aware, etc.

musikcube is also fully open source - foobar is not.
i think i may switch to musikcube myself - its more intuitive for me to create playlists the way it does it.

very good point; one of the advantages of hard drive racks and external hds is that you can easily make a backup and store it offsite.  i agree it's a very good idea to protect against fire and theft.

a related plug:

the super cheap lightweight hosting accounts that we are offering to help offset the cost of our new server is a a perfect offsite backup ftp for your valuable files.

it's easy to set up a daily *encrypted* (so that no one else can read them) backup of your important files.  for more info: http://www.donationcoder....orum/index.php?board=60.0

here is the link to the simplemachines forum section that discusses integrating smf login with other portals and systems; it should be extremely useful to this process:

first thing to do in 2006: backup your computer.
if you don't already have a regular monthly backup plan, make it your new year's resoltuion.
your computer hard drive is going to crash eventually - have a backup plan it place!

to summarize the approach i think seems most common and appropriate. the basic idea is that the smf login is the authoritative login.

  • smf has a helper php file SSI.php which you can include from any other php script (mantis and mediawiki are both php).
  • after including that you can easily get the users name and 'member group' in smf.
  • if the user is not logged into smf, and they want to log in to mediawiki or mantis, you should try to sign them into smf.
  • if they are logged into smf, you should synchronize their smf login with their mediawiki or mantis login.
  • this may amount to creating a new login at mediawiki or mantis if none exists, or changing their mediawiki/mantis group if their smf group is different (rare), and then logging them into their mediawiki or mantis account.
