101  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Stop NSA Spying! on: February 12, 2014, 10:21:15 AM
email received:

Quote from: Help Miro Stop NSA Spying
Today, Miro is joining thousands of organizations and millions of people to end out of control NSA spying as part of "The Day We Fight Back". Can we really take back our privacy? You're damn right we can.

Today we are demanding that lawmakers in the US pass a bill called the US Freedom Act that woud take a first step towards protecting our privacy and ending abuses. It's not perfect, but it's a HUGE improvement.

We need your help today, whether you live in the US or not:

1. Take 15 seconds to sign these three AskThem questions, targeted at key US Politicians.  We need to reach at least 100 signatures on each!

Ask Them:

     President Obama: Will you sign the USA Freedom Act?

     Senator Elizabeth Warren: Will you co-sponsor the USA Freedom Act?

     Senator Mitch McConnell: Will you co-sponsor the USA Freedom Act?


2. Write your own question for your US Representative or Senator or to any verified Twitter account:

     Ask a Question About the NSA: http://www.askthem.io/

Thank you for defending the rights of everyone online!

And we encourage you to try out the incredible new open-source question and answer platform AskThem.io, which is powering our petitions today.


nicholas and the Miro team

This is happening the very same day that we in Europe are informed that EU is preparing to demand that ICANN (in USA) must give up the leadership of the Internet and give it over to United Nations. This is not good. This is not safe. Do you hear me? It may be less dangerous to have NSA, CIA and ICANN rule the Internet, than to have UN do it! It happens much too often that sanity is a minority in UN.

I don't know if it is wise in the long run to support any of these initiatives,
but here and now I want to stop NSA spying!

A previous tip showed how to create a system image in Windows 8. In Windows 8.1, Microsoft changed the procedure and made it harder to find. In this tip, I will give the new way to make a system image

... without a proxie, it says 'Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to www.softologic.com', and 'softologic ...

softologic.com is "InstallBrain" (no wiki), not "OpenCandy".

Both are repeatedly said to be harmless on their own, but to me InstallBrain is too dodgy (although not "dangerous") to stay on my computer. I have a couple of times had OpenCandy installed, when I was testing some program, and I saw nothing dangerous happen.

try the other way around, please. Run a full anti-virus and anti-malware scan. If the result is safe, the problem does not exist.

Agnitum offered the lifetime option a bit longer than advertised but it seems like it's gone now...   Sad
Be patient...they seem to bring the offer back frequently.

-no, they don't; this was only the second time in four years. The frequent offer is merely for the firewall.

111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Unchecky: automatically unchecking unwanted offers, while installing software! on: February 08, 2014, 04:27:16 AM
http://unchecky.com/ and http://rammichael.com/unchecky-v0-2

The first versions of unchecky were far too "unstable" to trust during installation. The new version .2.xx however is quite good. But still beta without any guarantees...

Quote from: unchecky.com
Tired of unchecking unrelated offers while installing software?

Have you ever felt, while installing software, that the installer tries to push additional unwanted programs at all cost? Ever missed a checkbox, and spent hours afterwards removing adware? Ever opened your browser after an installation, only to find out that you have a new homepage, a new search engine, or even a new browser?

Introducing Unchecky!
Keeps your checkboxes clear.

Unchecky aims to keep potentially unwanted programs out of your computer.
Quote from: RaMMicHaeL
While Unchecky v0.2 is still labeled as beta, it’s much more stable and robust than the early v0.1.x versions. More than 20 issues were closed. Many more installers are supported. If you were hesitant to try Unchecky because of its early age, you might want to consider trying it now.

You can get Unchecky at unchecky.com
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzb_SHxt-o8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzb_SHxt-o8</a>
Unchecky Unchecks
Unchecky automatically unchecks unrelated offers, both saving you mouse clicks and making it less likely to miss a checkbox of an unwanted offer.

Unchecky Warns
Installers often try to sneak additional programs as a natural part of the installation. Unchecky warns you when you try to accept a potentially unwanted offer, which makes it less likely to be accepted accidentally.

Unchecky Updates automatically
Install and forget. Unchecky automatically updates whenever a new version is available, so you don't have to worry about running the latest version.

Unchecky is freeware

What has changed, if Notepad++ no longer is the answer?

113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Resource Hacker FX patcher on: February 07, 2014, 10:47:03 AM
obviously posted via snail-mail:

Quote from: Angus Johnson, Resource Hacker
Resource Hacker is no longer being developed:
Last Updated: 16 September 2011 Version: 3.6.0
I have been overwhelmed by the interest in Resource HackerTM, the emails of thanks, encouragement and suggestions. It's been downloaded many millions of times. However, I've moved on to other things and have no plans to continue its development. Please don't ask for the source code, I'm not releasing it, nor is it for sale.

So here is Resource Hacker FX patcher (last updated Nov. 2013)

 by RaMMicHaeL 2011, 2012, 2013.


Attention! Direct links:
and http://rammichael.com/dow.../Resource-Hacker-FXer.zip

What does the patcher change:

    Partial Unicode support. More details at http://rammichael.com/res...hacker-fx-unicode-support
    A new interface with modern icons and a manifest.
    Icons by Yusuke Kamiyamane.

    Resource Hacker FX does not create tree nodes for every language. Usually only one language is used anyway, so it makes it much faster to navigate through resources.

    Resource Hacker FX uses the new open and save common dialogs instead of the old outdated ones. Also, some saving as parameters got improved: the directory of the current file is initially shown, the file name gets filled, the extension is automatically added if not specified.

    If you have a modified file open and you close Resource Hacker FX, you have a Cancel option when asked whether you would like to save the file. Also, if you choose to save it, it just gets saved instead of saving as.

    The Hex viewer shows only the first 10 KB of the binary resource by default to prevent hanging Resource Hacker FX. I could not really fix it, as it’s the Rich Edit control’s fault, it’s quite slow with large texts. Well, it’s not too smart to use Rich Edit to view a Hex dump, but that’s how it works. 10 KB should be usually enough to understand what the resource is about. If it isn’t, you can hold shift to load the whole resource.

    Other minor additions, like e.g. double click to replace resource, minimizing/maximizing effects.

    Lots of bug fixes.

The look was still modern in 2011:

my advice is to set up a new machine with windows 7 and get her set up on it

-my advice as well. Win 7 can quite easily be made to look & perform like an updated XP.
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is your boot time? on: February 04, 2014, 03:35:07 AM
I usually light up a cig and hit the start button,
I launch my XP several times a day, so I do smoke a lot...

today the 4'th of February 2014 it is my 1 year anniversary for not smoking!

I just had to tell  cheesy

Also the boot time is better  Wink

the program is less than five weeks old!

118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: January 29, 2014, 02:39:29 AM
The Sanwhole Vole Explorer is (...) being updated so frequently that you would think he is bound to someday make it a well working program

But how far has he already gone; what version are we at?:

Release records:
1, 18-Apr-2013 3.4.30418: First release.

-eh... was version 3.4.30418 the first release? His own words!  ohmy
Now it doesn't sound equally impressive that the current version number is 3.11.40108


Framework 3.5 or higher

Windows Media Player Codec if you want to watch more kinds of video.
Microsoft Office 2000 or higher if you want to preview Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint docs.
Adobe Flash Player if you want to play YouTube video in VMC Discovery.
Adobe Reader if you want to preview PDF file.

It is not enough for Adobe Reader to merely be installed, it also must have pdf associated, AND have that annoying Adobe update thing placed in Start.

I will not test Vole any further.
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Tips for Windows 7+8 on: January 27, 2014, 01:50:06 PM
I am still running Win 7 (even though I purchased a copy of Win 8 PRO ten months ago), so I have not taken the time before to really study this thread. To my surprise I now see that you have no link to the wonderful 137 Win 8 "desktop" shortcuts gathered by 7torials (here bundled with 139 Win 7 desktop shortcuts):

#desktop shortcuts, as opposed to keyboard shortcuts.


These shortcuts work on any computer. Some of the tools are available only on certain Windows versions.
The collection was made using Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 8 Pro.

They all come from http://www.7tutorials.com...-7-shortcuts#main-content

If you want to study the various shortcuts before downloading, you must read http://www.7tutorials.com...-7-shortcuts#main-content . The first part of the page is about Win 7, and the second part of course about Win 8. The third part is forum posts.

120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for iTunes alternative (WMP? or other?) on: January 27, 2014, 02:59:32 AM
Does she use a portable (laptop) or a stationary (desktop)? My advice would not suite the portable solution.

I have moved the extensive (100k+ tracks) music collection out of the system folder, and over to an external 2TB USB "F" drive. In the "C" drive's Music system folder I only have the approx 650 tracks that are on my favourite play lists, and this is then all WMP will scan. That is impossible to detect; no freezing what so ever.

I have amplified WMP with (freeware) Windows Media Player Plus! (last updated May 19, 2013) because of the useful features it will add: http://bmproductions.fixn...tions.fixnum.org/wmpplus/ But if she never modifies her setup, this might not be for her, as we know Windows' default reaction always is to blame the extras, eh... extensions, if a problem has occurred.

When the job not is big, I think WMP is the better solution.

I still think PhotoUpz may be the best of the kind for the money.

The result from WinDir Stat is of course a lot fancier to look at, but other than that, I don't rate..., because I've paid good money for a license key to Key Metric Folder Sizes Pro, so I use that one, weather it's the better one or not!

123  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Folder Size (freeware) now at version 3 on: January 24, 2014, 02:20:36 AM
Maybe this post belongs to the "normal" >General Software Discussion< thread. I am however placing it here because the new version 3 of Folder Size from MindGems (still) is both freeware and a (much simpler but otherwise) fine competitor to the $27.50 / $55 Folder Sizes 6 from Key Metric:

Quote from: MindGems
Folder Size version is released – a major version packed with plenty of new features and improvements:

Unicode ( Multi-language ) Folder Size Analysis

Folder Size 2 did already scan files in multiple languages, but it could scan files in no more than 2 Languages at the same time. The second language had to be set as a language for non-unicode applications in the settings panel of Windows. This is no longer necessary and Folder Size 3 can scan files in any language at the same time.
