1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Pros/Cons re Microsoft EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit)? on: November 21, 2014, 04:47:42 PM
I had EMET 5 running for a week while I was testing AVG, BitDefender and MalwareBytes, but I didn't test EMET as such. When I went back to Outpost Security Suite Pro, I removed EMET because 1) it now was redundant and 2) because of the small but multiple annoyances.

5  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / get facebook video, without more software on: November 17, 2014, 01:47:01 AM
I both laughed and cried when I saw this video on facebook.  I wanted to save it to my computer, but couldn't figure out how to do so!

So I had to search for an answer. Now having found that answer, I thought someone else might want to know about it too? So here is the extremely easy instruction:

Quote
in the browser's address line   on the video's "homepage":
Replace www with m
 ... load page ...
Right-click the video and click Save target as...

-it doesn't matter if the "m-page" looks weird.

I was amazed that this is all it takes. But it is.

--------------
Thanks to this video, which is telling a much longer version of the same story:

Did you try to simply re-install Replay?

I used to have Replay installed, and I don't remember it having anything to do with Windows Task Scheduler! If you have the neccessary license key to reinstall Replay, please allow me to encourage you to first install Revo Uninstaller Pro (30 days freee trial), and then use it to uninstall Replay.

http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Install Revo and when it is open, just 2x click Replay, and wait while Revo first is scanning.
=> it is then best to use Revo's setting "Advanced" (default is "Moderate").

Then re-install Replay, and the problem has hopefully left, without wrestling the Task Scheduler.  tellme

Here is another way of answering:

"Here you are: [attachurl=#]"

Installation
------------
Do NOT select "Get plugins to enhance calibre" as this is reserved for 'official' calibre plugins, instead select "Change calibre behavior" to go to Calibre's Preferences page.  Under "Advanced" click on the Plugins button. Use the "Load plugin from file" button to select the plugin's zip file (DeDRM_plugin.zip) and click the "Add" button. Click "Yes" in the the "Are you sure?" dialog. Click OK in the "Success" dialog.

You read a long text. You need to scroll in the text - and then you need to return. But now it seems the line has left the page! Where is it?
You need TextMarker Go!


I have come to like TextMarker Go. Remembering Ctrl+Shift+F9 and F2, makes it so much easier to temporary leave the paragraph you're reading in a long text and later on instantly come back to the very same line.

Now there is a free version.

I re-installed epubor, and successfully removed the DRM-protection!  thumbs up

But I have not yet been able to convert the same, huge .prc file. The ebook converters epubor and Calibre are both using too much RAM in an unpatiently way...; they freeze to death before there is enough memory available. I guess 225MB is quite a job. Do I really have to buy a new computer, in order to convert this ebook into a more useful format?

modified:
At http://ebook.online-convert.com/ I can convert the file for a mere $5. Cheaper than a new PC.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Calibre 2 is out on: August 25, 2014, 10:40:37 AM
Calibre version 2 has only been able to convert my small books, not any of my larger but still normal sized books, before failing, due to memory error.

oh, I didn't see this post at first, before posting my above answer.

why not just download the individual titles you actually want to read from Project Gutenberg or other free sources?

-may very well be necessary, but then a hundred will be reduced to a handful...
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Calibre 2 is out on: August 24, 2014, 04:18:21 PM
-sorry, I should of course have made it clear that "classics.prc" means "classics = more than 80 years old" => no copyright.

----------------------


The link (http://bayfiles.net/file/...Z/Nweufd/tools_v6.0.9.zip) leads to an 440KB exe! Is it a downloader of the real thing, or will it destroy my pc and leave me bankrupted? Or does one really have to pay for a Premium account, in order to download the money-saving anti-drm extension? The problem could maybe be my browser not allowing some important popup telling me what I should have done.

Here is what my safety program thinks of the exe file:

modified:
The epubor ebook converter is a whopping $46 - it will need a huge discount, before I would jump that wagon!

further modified:
The "buy"-link inside the converter gave these prices: 1 year: $36. Lifetime: $55


[attachimg=2]
[attachimg=3]

--------------
Unfortunately I was quick acting, but not quick thinking. At first launch, the epubor converter said something about having found some drm protected files, and asked me something. I couldn't imagine it was asking if I wanted to convert some of them for free, so my finger clicked Yes before I had understood the question - and the converter immediately converted two files. But because I not yet had understood anything, it was the "wrong" two files, the first, small files, not the big one! How stupid I feel right now.
