in my opinion they could call it version 4.390, or so. Why change the major version's number, when I can't spot any differences?

take a look at RichCopy

RichCopy has not been updated for 6 years, but other than looking old, it is really fine  thumbs up
Look for "Joshua Hoffman Code download available at: HoffmanUtilitySpotlight2009_04.exe (5,896 KB)"

Thank you, guys, for the answers.


However, this answer:

for a clean install if you want to use local accounts, you have to select the Company Owned Computer option. If you select the It's My Computer option, it's MS Live accounts only (during the OOBE).

if you click the wrong one, there is no way to backup

10 has an odd habit of trying to login in with a "default" account for which there is no known/available password. The only way out of that little mess is to - quite counter intuitively - select "Cancel Login".

-made my stomach so uneasy that I totally lost my courage. Win 10 is absolutely not for me  ,  yet.    ohmy

I have reserved a copy of Win 10, but am still on Win 7. However, right now I am having a fit, because of this "You must create a Microsoft Account: One login to everything". I trust it's not planned to be misused any time soon, but at the same time I know, it's an evil route, this "you must login" (> Log in, so we can know everything about you <)!

But before I go completely insane, I should ASK if (on Win 10) I will have to login, just to open my PC and fiddle with my locally stored pictures, ebooks and such? Mind you, I am on Win 7, and even though I have a license key for Win 8 Pro, I have never even tried Win 8, mainly because I was told I would have to create a Microsoft Account and log in to it!

But maybe I misunderstood what it is. Maybe my fear of Big Brother made me overreact? So maybe I should first ask 'you' what this "log in to you account" is (or isn't)? Why MUST I have this "account" (I have not yet created such)? Was it not enough that Google knows eveything about me, now Microsoft wants to know even more?!! The pages about the subject tells a lot about what it is, but not about what it isn't. And I am scared of these Big Brother wannabes; they never know what they really are doing! Is the demand to login only if I want to use an online service, or is it also when I just want to use my personal computer (the one that used to be private)? Am I being taken hostage? Is this "login" an enemy in disguise?

By the way: Being a user of IrfanView, I already have this feature easy at hand (Ctrl+R).
In IrfanView it is even supplied with the option to also change the photo's DPI setting.

However,
Is it true that the program only can be closed, exit, by right-clicking the icon in the tray?

surely, it must "let go" of the picture.

how to delete this empty file?
Try this - download SetACL Studio (which has a 30 day free trial) and navigate to the folder and see exactly what's there. This is useful software -
- "useful software"; you can say that again! It didn't ask any questions, but deleted the empty file just like it would have deleted any other file. BRAVO! Thank you, x16wda,   Thmbsup 
(but of course, normal price is €90 - so it should be able to do a lot more than those freeware apps)

getlocalload is something of a damp squib. Doesn't even install, though it says it has.

-installs under L for Local Load.

13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Scam/adware from Mozilla update; how do I find the culprit? on: June 17, 2015, 11:22:00 AM
I was quite upset when I wrote the initial post, so I didn't explain myself perfectly well. I know I never do, but, hey, most of the times you know what I mean.

Modified:
I should of course point out that there have been no suspicious reactions whatsoever. Only the link to a "shop".

The problem is really not my problem, but Mozilla's: An addon contained a link to a third-party site, nothing else has happened. But this is bad for Mozilla. So bad, that I ought to tell them. But I can't, because I don't know what addon it was - and I don't want to send them a list of fifty shades of extensions, and then just say, "one of them made me an offer, and nothing else happended".
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Scam/adware from Mozilla update; how do I find the culprit? on: June 16, 2015, 07:06:44 PM
for a minute I thought I was being clever: In Firefox > Addons, I clicked "show the latest updates", and I saw that only one updated addon was not "signed"! Ha ha, this surely is The Sinner! I removed it and reinstalled a new copy - but nothing out of the ordinary happened. Hm...
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Scam/adware from Mozilla update; how do I find the culprit? on: June 16, 2015, 06:25:40 PM
Don't fix what is not broken. But Mozilla wants us all to have these signed versions, so I finally clicked "Update" in Firefox Addons, and right away felt a nervous knot in my stomach; oh, why didn't I abort the update at once?

My biggest problem is, that after the first five update procedures, I lost my patience and I updated some 32 extensions at the same time - yeah, I know, "always update addons one at a time", but there were too many still waiting - so now I don't know which addon was polluted. Is there a clever, fast way to find out? It's probably not a good idea to tell me to test this many one at a time...

After re-launch a page popped up and said "Gratulations: You are the chosen one!" and gave me the option to answer 4 questions and then have a gift, which showed to be the chance to buy this&that for "before $120, right now $1". The link was for Firefox, but I was given the same offer when I visited the link via Internet Explorer and Chrome: http://consumernordicnews...=50facb8fd37c1fb31900064f > no virus, but seemingly fine offers you (most likely) should not take. The link goes to Denmark, are you being redirected elsewhere?

oh, your poor people, how sad it is to read about your problems  Grin

When I walk, I walk slowly. Because I walk slowly, it takes me almost 5 minutes to get to the first super market. Another 3 minutes to get to the next super market. And another 2 minutes to get to the third. I have thought about moving further down the road, to skip all this walking.

forgive me, crabby3, for having an opinion about something I don't know anything about... but MAYBE you already have some anti-virus program of a kind running!?? At least, that is what your description makes it sounds like.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: MBAM scans freeze computer on: June 13, 2015, 04:50:27 PM
do not have the option to run and it will not save or save as.

-so you are obviously not using Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

The mbam-setup-2.1.6.1022.exe is a normal installer. When you are on  https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/ and you have cancelled the download (because they try to force you to open the file at once), just right-click the green [download now] button, and find Save link as... in your right-click context menu pop-up.

The setup file is 20.55MB

"more than 50 mio" by year 2015 cannot be exaggerated.

-"always stick to your first thought". ... (of course not "always", but...)



It was choking to read Rummel / Bond. A couple of years ago I heard the number 70 mio, but I didn't dare to quote it in my first post, and I was hoping 50 mio was too big a number. But what do you say when the number is a quarter of a billion? I have no words for this.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: [Infographics] WWII deaths compared w. others on: June 12, 2015, 05:22:56 PM
Why did you remove the link in your original post Curt? (Was is not your source of the number of deaths?)
I was curious about your changed number -

I gave up explaining myself, because I was too mixed up in my feelings.

At first I gave the UN link which said 20 millions by year 1992 (after WW2). But then I wondered about the following 23 years... and found this page saying "more than 50 mio", by year 2000 - so I thought, "more than 50 mio" by year 2015 cannot be exaggerated.

I also got upset because...:
The writer made us imagine that only rich countries are killing MANY people, poor countries can only kill a few. However, these poor countries seemingly managed to be inefficient, and yet kill off more than fifty million people! And we didn't even have a fraction of a world war!!

Then I read that these video people wants to make a lot more videos of the same kind.... and I realized that they are not in it for peace & love, but because they are impressed with themselves,

and just like fools such as Bob Geldof, Richard Dawkins or Lance Armstrong, just to name a few, they think that surely they must be teachers to the masses. Oh hail, Messiah II.

But all that was far too much to talk about, so I clicked delete & post ;-)

moodified_":

PS! Thank you for the ourworldindata -link. At first I found it difficult to trust, because their total killed-in-war number for year 2007 is 21.189, but that is a smaller number than were killed merely by terror attacks: 22.719 ! Please don't argue that terror is not war. Other than that, the site seems okay.

This thread is about celebrating the number, not the content. So of course we are allowed to cut off most of the post, like below. If you think the content also is important here, you simply link to the original post.

I like how the ending of the interactive version is ruled by your PC's clock.

modified:

Thankfully, very few war deaths have occurred in Japan, Western Europe and North America after 1945. However, I don't like how the wartime killings (after 1945) of more than 50 million people in other areas of the world not is mentioned in this video - except "they were not rich countries", without telling how extremely many it has been.

Because of this, I think the video is a lie!  thumb down

Quote from: adnauseam
As online advertising is becoming more automatic, universal and unsanctioned, AdNauseam works to complete the cycle by automating all ad-clicks universally and blindly on behalf of the target audience. Working in coordination with your ad blocker, AdNauseam quietly clicks every blocked ad, registering a visit on the ad networks databases. As the data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user profiling, targeting and surveillance becomes futile.

AdNauseam is a browser extension designed to obfuscate browsing data and protect users from surveillance and tracking by advertising networks. Simultaneously, AdNauseam serves as a means of amplifying users' discontent with advertising networks that disregard privacy and facilitate bulk surveillance agendas.
[attachimg=2]
Quote from: adnauseam
AdNauseam joins a broader class of software systems that attempt to serve ethical, political, and expressive ends. In light of the industry's failure to achieve consensus on a Do Not Track standard, or to otherwise address the excesses of network tracking, AdNauseam allows individual users to take matters into their own hands, fighting back against unilateral surveillance. Taken in this light, the software follows an approach similar to that of TrackMeNot, employing obfuscation as a strategy to shift the balance of power between the trackers and the tracked.
