Winter, no snow since our altitude is too low for that but at least we're still in the light smiley

That's why I chose Movienizer. It's a multifunctional freeware.

It's not freeware in any way, shape or form:

I've been looking at FlexRAID for a while - it wouldn't run on WHS 2011 but they've recently released v2 which does, so I might have another look as the storage pooling seems especially suited to my needs.

Quote
FlexRAID is a highly scalable and smart storage system that turns independent hard drives of various sizes, makes, and models into storage pools and storage pools into storage clouds.

Additionally, FlexRAID provides data protection, monitoring, and recovery through RAID over any filesystem (RAID-F™) in a non-destructive fashion.

It lives above the filesystem layer so you can actually remove a drive from the system, plug it into another machine and providing it can read the filesystem, (NTFS, FAT, Ext2-4, etc), you can read/write to it.  So if the motherboard ever died you don't need to recreate the RAID environment with the same hardware to get your data back, just plug the drive(s) into another computer.

The movie was very annoying. But the actress was so hot I had to find more of her flicks.

Ha!  I thought to myself, "That looks like the actress from 'The Transporter'."

DUH!   smiley

I can use http://companyweb OK but http://connect just isn't there

Probably a pointless comment since you might already have looked, (and SJ has far more experience than me), but this KB article sounds like the problem you're experiencing.
2008  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: It's a Google world on: June 07, 2012, 07:07:40 PM
Yikes. They must also have some kind of location thing using your IP address by region because when I type "pizza" I get *eight* listings for local restaurants in my town! I'm not even logged in to any Google services!   ohmy

They've had IP based ads for years - although I don't normally see them due to Firefox addons.

Does anyone know how to remove the "google ads" from the results listings using either ABP or ad muncher?

Here's mine for AdBlock:

And when you open AdBlocks Blockable Items list, I have:

The three items blocked are: Bottom Ads, Right-Hand-Side Column and Top Ads.

Movienizer is distributed as try-before-you-buy. You can use the trial version with its limitations as long as you wish. If you like the program, you have to purchase a license in order to unlock all features. Otherwise, it should be removed. Detailed information is available at the licensing page.

The only way it could be considered free under those terms is if you hate it and continue to use it as trialware....slightly oxymoronic.

I still use Personal Video Database, after trying EMDB, AMC and Movienizer, PVD's flexible file importing is a lot better when it comes to adding files into the database.  PVD is the only one, (of the above), that seems to import the properties of the files, (resolution, codecs, etc), and it also allows you to specify a regex expression to parse the file names.

No adds here using Crome with AdBlock -- have you tried clicking that "why these adds?" link and see if it's something you can disable perhaps?

No adds here using FF & Adblock - I wonder is it a European vs. US thing (me & Jibz being in eu/europe)

Good point.

I'm down under smiley

But yes, I tried disabling/enabling AdBlock/DNTMP/Ghostery a few times, (this is only in Dragon), and it's come good, ie. no ads.  Don't know what happened, maybe it managed to sneak in an extension update while I wasn't looking.

Firefox, (plus addons), has always blocked the ads - that's my main browser.  Dragon is my portable browser.
2012  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: It's a Google world on: June 06, 2012, 07:27:36 AM
Comodo Dragon with AdBlock Plus, Do Not Track Plus & Ghostery installed and enabled.....and still the ads get through.

[attach=1]

If I put it into Incognito mode then they stop.

Interestingly, if I disable AdBlock Plus, DNTP & Ghostery I get two sponsored ads instead of one.


Makes me glad I use Firefox smiley

FlashJet Scan might let you do this, (you may have to click the scan button each time) - it's free and will scan to a PDF, (and optionally organise them into folders).

You need .NET 3.5.
2014  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's the DC verdict for this Encryption Software if used for USB drives on: June 03, 2012, 09:58:25 PM
If you want to possibly avoid any keylogging you could try the following:

1) Put a portable browser on your flash drive, (not necessary but does come in handy),
2) Grab the source archive from here and extract to the flash drive, (you can delete everything but the index.html and js, css folders),
3) When you want to decrypt, open the index.html, type in your password, then cut and paste into your encryption program.

[attach=1]

Possibly also make sure the browser is running in privacy mode before doing it....and make sure no-one is peering over your shoulder smiley
2015  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does OpenDNS or GoogleDNS slow down your access? Private DNS server??? on: June 03, 2012, 01:02:58 AM
Being in the UK on of the advantages of using OpenDNS (and OpenDNScrypt) is to avoid UK ISP DNS filtering but I thought the article made some interesting points for those of us outside the US.

According to OpenDNS they have a datacentre in London and:
Quote
Unlike other providers, OpenDNS’s network uses sophisticated Anycast routing technology, which means no matter where you are in the world, your DNS requests are answered by the datacenter closest to you.

So in theory, you don't need to use OpenDNScrypt, just setting your DNS IPs to OpenDNS should bypass any IP filtering done by your ISPs DNS, you'll be routed to OpenDNS' London datacentre.

FWIW, I run my own DNS purely because it's faster, (even for uncached fetches generally), and I don't have to rely on someone else's, (which was a problem at a couple of my previous ISPs).
2016  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Raspberry Pi - more woes! on: June 03, 2012, 12:01:24 AM
1) There is no RTC on the board so the time and date are wrong - how the heck do you set the time and date?

Perhaps grab one of the many Arduino I2C RTC modules, (like this one on ebay), and interface it to the GPIO?

If nothing else, it'll be an opportunity to enhance your programming skills smiley
2017  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Movie Title question for film buffs on: June 02, 2012, 03:16:04 AM
Type in "ordinary man rules the world" in google just now. It's like the third in the list. This is really silly.

You're not wrong, I just tried your search, (with and without quotes), and got no hits for the movie in the first 5 pages of results.

EDIT: HA!  Got my old results back by blocking the Google search engine cookie using a Firefox addon: No cookie for Google search

Now Collusion remains blissfully blank whenever I do a Google search  Thmbsup
2018  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Movie Title question for film buffs on: June 02, 2012, 01:07:31 AM
Guess duck duck go and Bing just doesn't have the same coverage.

It's why I gave up on DDG after only a week as my default search engine, it just wasn't showing me the results that should have been right at the top.

Google gives me the results I want, I just try to minimise the carnage getting them.  cheesy

I searched for: movie ordinary man absolute power

Search results have changed, (even in the short period between when I first did it and now, eg. DC didn't appear in the original results), but when I first did it the movie title came up 2 or 3 times within the top ten.

IMDB, Answers.com, (the two I reference above), and one other reference World Sci-Fi Cinema - so I took a stab at it being the most likely.

EDIT: Now I only have the IMDB reference in the top ten and Answers.com doesn't get a mention in the top twenty.

The Man Who Could Work Miracles (1936) ?

Quote
An ordinary man suddenly finds that anything he says comes true. Or at least, almost anything!

Plot from Answers.com
Quote
As a result of a discussion between a trio of gods over the true worthiness of Earth, a retiring British shop assistant is granted miraculous powers in this fantasy based on an H.G. Wells story. Roland Young stars as George McWhirter Fotheringay, whose new powers are virtually limitless; choosing to use them for good, he sets out to create a utopian society. Still, despite a succession of miraculous deeds, George's plans to cure all of the world's ills is met with disbelief. As proof of his power, George wills the earth to stop spinning on its axis, which results in its citizens flying off the planet into space. Because George is indestructible, he is able to shout out his last wish, which restores the world--and George himself--back to normal. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

The OTF unpack/repack sounds good, but it also mandates a pristine exit to avoid data loss (eek!).

I wasn't going to mention that aspect because there's absolutely no way to guard against it - it's just part and parcel with the whole 'self-contained' thing.

You could bundle up the executable and it's dependant files using something like Cameyo but having your data separate in the same directory is a much better option than bundling it.
2022  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: telephone by pc on: June 01, 2012, 08:14:18 AM
Phone Dialer works just fine, and has been part of Windows since 95.

You're right, something I've never used and completely forgot about.

Still need to pass a highlighted number to it but at least you don't have to screw around with the comms side of things.

"....taken to Hackensack University...." - very appropriate - is this a sister university to Miskatonic?
2025  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: which programming/scripting language has the largest number of functions? on: May 31, 2012, 09:16:59 PM
the documents (files) should always accompany the executable and should be immediately available

I think your best choices are either a self-repacking archive or just having the files in the same directory.

For the archive you make it self-extracting with a batch file that runs following extraction that will run your program, wait until it closes, then repack the archive with changed data.

That's the easiest way I can see of doing it but someone else probably has a better idea.
