1  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Who is your Favourite "Doctor"? on: October 18, 2014, 10:45:12 AM
Christopher Eccleston for me, although Peter Capaldi does a good job. Admittedly, I don't know the first seven Doctors, I started with the "movie".
Smith and Tennant seem to be "female-supported" Doctors, preferred by girls because they're, optically, handsome. I guess that doesn't fit what Doctor Who is about. It's not "Sherlock"!

(Do the non-canonical Doctors count? There was a Rowan Atkinson one...)

I see.

Which one's missing?

I still want to know why people actually continue to pay for Office when OpenOffice does the same job and costs nothing.

And OpenOffice isn't the only GPL backed alternative.

You shouldn't choose your software based on its license. It'd leave you with not much choice.

Microsoft Office is nice for teams, given that LibO/OOo are the only alternatives with real plans for a built-in collaborative "cloud storage" - stuck to mere plans for years now. For personal use, probably SoftMaker Office (and WordPerfect - the text processor - for letters; yes, I'm still undecided) is the better choice anyway when it comes to quality.

I wonder which version number Windows 10 will have. 6.4?
Just to add more confusion.

But it seems that Windows 10 will make Listary and Dexpot a bit less important. Neat.

I think that's consequence.

I've read that upcoming Windows versions will be "rolling releases" anyway, with Windows "9" being the last or next-to-last "full release"; the code for in-place upgrades is already in "milestone previews".

indeed, it is still the default login shell

 huh
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 07:53:48 PM
Not in Linuxland. The bash is the only major GPL'ed shell.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 06:02:01 PM
Unix doesn't default to bash. Unix rocks.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 07:25:07 AM
Depends on what you do day-by-day. My day-by-day systems are Windows and FreeBSD, randomly supported by OpenBSD. All of them do different things for me.
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Linux bash exploit discovered on: September 26, 2014, 03:37:52 AM
So this is roughly a second time that I have heard of, (I'm sure there are more) where flaws in otherwise trusted non-Windows Non-Adobe/Java stuff has been sitting on a vulnerability for who knows how long, and the "good guys" only found it in 2014.

Don't trust Linux.

While Linux would work without bash, the GNU/Linux ecosystem mostly got down to it. Here we go with another example of Linux's bad design: As everything is third-party software, no one triggers a decent QA.

It definitely lacks an e-mail notification though.
13  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Sublime Text Giveaway on: September 14, 2014, 08:18:02 AM
Interestingly, the Sublime Text forums are broken for a couple of days now. Intended?
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: New BitTorrent client needed, suggestions please? on: September 12, 2014, 06:10:21 AM
People still use that torrent stuff? Why?

If I had to choose, I'd probably recommend Tixati. Reminds me of old WinMX.

Oh, that Qute is sweet indeed. Although I mainly use Markdown for quick drafts for later HTML conversion. But I'll take a look.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Remarkable - a very simple previewing Markdown editor for Linux on: September 08, 2014, 11:19:36 AM
Some of them were indeed new to me. But I wonder why you like MD inside VS but rant about .net...
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Remarkable - a very simple previewing Markdown editor for Linux on: September 08, 2014, 04:49:49 AM
Why not Emacs?

(On Windows, there's MarkdownPad 2. Beat that.)
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Process Closer on: September 06, 2014, 09:03:37 AM
I use Process Explorer for that. Process Closer won't be able to kill applications without a window.

Yes, AdGuard needs to intercept HTTPS, that's why using the Android version is a bit dangerous...

It sounded quite different in Murray's blog.

They announced AM5 to be released this Summer. Looks like winter now.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: August 29, 2014, 11:05:15 AM
TL;DR: Miner coders cripple their public versions so they can mine faster themselves. I doubt that's a Monero-centric thing.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: August 29, 2014, 07:55:36 AM
Seems like Bitcoin (and other) mining is artificially crippled so the miner devs make higher profits:

Wordpress.com didn't let you install custom plug-ins last time I checked.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Wordpress and Hackers on: August 24, 2014, 11:46:35 AM
My rule of thumb here is to use only commonly used plug-ins with a record of security. I have to blindly trust them because checking is too expensive for me.

I usually try to replace plug-ins by simple functions.php snippets around twice a year. Works well. I know it sounds a bit harsh, but if you don't understand PHP, you shouldn't install WordPress. Better use the wordpress.com hosting service.
