2826  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I'm impressed with DonationCoder... Are you? on: August 07, 2006, 10:01:19 AM
Donationcoder is a community that has truely inspired me. I now enjoy doing various projects for the site, to range from screencasts to the upcoming interviews for the podcasts, to whatever I can think of next. Donationcoder has shown me how hard developers work on applications and has given much more motivation not just to donate to freeware projects I like, but to support commercial applications by purchasing a license when I find a tool useful.

Thanks mouser and crew!

I ought to torture you endlessly for just posting this! This game had me sitting for about 15 minutes waiting for it to load because it wasnt "optimized". I guess it was time you owed me one for everytime I've gotten you thus far smiley

Very nice review!

May I ask what made you stay with trillian over gaim or miranda? I prefer gaim myself as trillian never really showed me a feature that was a "Must have".

So, mouser, what is the plan for this? I am VERY anxiously awaiting the release of this program smiley

I just dont like apple's direction of campaigns against the pc. I am used to this type of marketing in a presidential campaign, but not a pc manufacturer's marketting campaign.

Well, what OS was this on? This sounds like PRE-IE6SP2 since now IE prompts you before an activex control is installed. I have not heard of anyone having an activex control (spyware loading one) being installed without the user being prompted.
2836  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Blueorganizer: Firefox extension for richer bookmark management on: August 06, 2006, 02:26:43 PM
I honestly dont forsee microsoft leaving IE out to dry anymore. They learned their lesson with IE6 when firefox came around. I bet we will see more and more updates to IE now that they have it back in their radar.
2837  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon 2.0 Invitation on: August 06, 2006, 02:07:16 PM
I can honestly say I have not been hit by any exploit in IE. I would like someone who has been hit to show me the vulnerability listing (on securnia, or whatever site) that they were hit by. So far, the only windows exploit I have been hit by was the blaster worm (RPC). You dont need to disable javascript or manage secure zones. All you have to do is practice safe browsing habits. The only time I've even had spyware ATTEMPT to install itself on my pc was when I visited a crack site (yes, I do visit them) and that never got anywhere because of several tools I have running.

I think security is overrated. I think that if we spent more of the time that we do developing "secure" applications on training and educating the end user, that we would get FAR MORE accomplished. Yes, there are unpatched security holes in IE, but I would like to see the numbers of the people actually hit by any of these holes.

Well, apple might not be as prone to virii or malware as windows is due to its lack of market share, BUT, I have yet to see a PC that explodes when its NOT PLUGGED IN. Way to go apple! Way to exceed the PC standard by EXPLODING as opposed to just running!

That information is provided in the Intro section, which is usually visible when you first open the mini-review page. This is just my opinion, and of course, I am by no means the final authority on this. Mouser?
2841  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon 2.0 Invitation on: August 05, 2006, 08:05:34 PM
You still need a registration email addy. The download will do no good if you dont have a registered email addy with the maxthon folks. Believe me, I tried.

Well, initially, I think any author that starts a forum will respond. Once a good knowledge base is started up, then it will be less required except for unhandled issues. Thats the way I've seen most forums work, and I think its a good approach once a good KB is built up.

Well, if it had been programmed decently, it wouldn't have (as many) holes. Yes, it's obviously the most targetted forum because it's the most widespread, but considering the amount of holes and the severity of them, I wouldn't want to run phpBB. Ever.

Programmed decently? Programming, regardless of who is doing it and how well you think it is done, has one major flaw. Its done by humans. So by saying that phpbb must not have been coded decently because it has so many holes, is like saying a car isnt safe because one man has managed to crash 8 of them in 2 years.
2846  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Mailing lists or Message boards for offering software support? on: August 05, 2006, 05:27:12 PM
Again, its only as secure as the number of users it has. phpBB has been around a good long time, and as such, it has become one of the primarily used bb software packages. (Remember when ultimatebb was king?). The only hacks I have seen against phpbb's were ones that were caused due to admins not patching in a timely fashion.
2847  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: B drive on: August 05, 2006, 05:21:20 PM
Are you kidding? Floppies have always had their place until the recordable cd became common place.
2848  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Mailing lists or Message boards for offering software support? on: August 05, 2006, 04:48:28 PM
While phpbb has had its share of hacks, if you stay on top of the patches, you are fine. A forum provides a better method for users to support each other (as opposed to just you supporting them). It also has a much easier way for users to search for past answers to a problem they might be experiencing.

I personally have never used mailing lists as a primary means of support simply because they are very tedious. With a forum, I can go to one central place, search for an answer, and if none is found, post it and get a response that much quicker.

Yes, it installs to maxthon2 directory and keeps individual settings
2850  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon 2.0 Invitation on: August 05, 2006, 01:18:17 PM
Maxthon 2.0 is nice, but they got rid of several key features from the 1.0 series. The one I miss the most is CTRL+TAB and CTRL+SHIFT+TAB for tab navigation. This is a standard key combo in every other tabbed browser, and now they changed it to CTRL+LEFT and CTRL+RIGHT, which is ok if you dont mind it, but I prefer being able to use one hand to navigate tabs.
