There was once a time when I knew all the software companies like this.  That time is no more.  because I don't give a S---!! anymore.   cheesy

That's my reaction right now because my brain just went "What the f--- is Ocster and how come it's never passed through here before?"

I think it's a riot how she mirrors Mick's stage moves - and then does them 10X better. Talk about getting pwned! Grin Grin Grin

Definitely check out 20 Feet from Stardom.  These ladies have talent, brains, and above all, class. Their interviews and comments speak volumes about the music industry - and those people that make it work despite their contributions remaining mostly unacknowledged. I expected there to be some bitterness in places. But there wasn't any. Just a lot of laughter, philosophical perspective, and the occasional moments of sadness about the break that never seemed to come despite promises made.

It's on NetFlix. Watch it. Thmbsup
I'll definitely check it out.  I've already watched this clip 4 times. I'm wearing out the grooves.

Just finished watching the docu-bio flick Twenty Feet from Startdom (highly recommended btw) which examines the crucial but often under-credited role of the backup singer.

In the course of the movie, they played this segment from the 1995 tour by the Rolling Stones which included the incomparable Lisa Fischer in an eye opening performance of Gimme Shelter. Lisa kicks into high gear around the 2:25 mark and shows The Stones what fronting a rock vocal is supposed to be about:

Thanks Mick! Why don't you take the rest of the night off and leave Lisa and the boys to handle the rest of the show. tongue

My question is not with security.  I've accepted the fact that email is insecure.  I just want a company to say "we are not allowed to poke around without your consent".  Not, "if we have to, we will poke around all we want, and remove stuff and do whatever we want."  I have no problem with the technology itself, even if it sucks.
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft: All your data are belong to us. on: March 27, 2014, 04:10:56 PM
Last week, it was revealed that Microsoft had examined the Hotmail/Outlook.com emails of a blogger, who was NOT a Microsoft employee, in order to find who had leaked confidential information to that person.

It seems this is legal because, under Microsoft’s terms of use, the company has the right to examine any user’s data for any reason they see fit.

This is very different from data mining user data to sell advertising, and it makes me wonder why anyone in their right mind would consider using Office 365 for any reason at all.
What's a good alternative?  I am also looking for an email/calendar service with more privacy protection than what is available.  I am not having any luck.  If I don't find one, I am planning on using Microsoft's Exchange Online ($4/month per user) service.

Well, I am a thorough person, so I'd figured I'd share what finally solved my problem.

The problem was with the Bat, not AntispamSniper like I initially suspected.  After several attempts, using the Maintenance Center of the Bat (Folder-->Maintenance Center), it found a couple of errors and fixed them.  Since then, the emails have been filtering properly.

I went back and forth with the ASS developer to find this solution, he was extremely helpful and I love his product.  The Bat support, not nearly as helpful (as expected), although they respond quickly using their trouble ticket.  But the ASS guy uses emails which is much more helpful in this kind of problem solving.

But it is better than most of what's out there - despite the popularity of all the faux-science and "paranormal phenomenon" shows on the so-called 'science' channels if you're not a diehard UFO or conspiracy buff.

I've been using this for a couple of weeks now.  This is easily the most complete notetaking solution out there currently.  It's basically what Evernote should have been before they went all v3 on our asses.  THings I love so far:
--standalone pc app (rare these days)
--mobile app
--cloud access
--everything syncs nicely (did i mention the desktop app?!!)
--no over-simplification of features, all the necessary buttons are there.
--there's really nothing it can't do

It's my new goto app on my phone for taking notes.  I still use RightNote for dumping things into, but I can already tell it's affecting my workflow there (which is a good thing, it means they are both apps I like).

It is a bit of a slow application, that's my only complaint and probably a big reason why I'll always love things like RIghtNote that are just so fast feeling.

just for your information:

Quote from: Antispam Sniper
The message headers are not used for the classification via SpamNet.
http://antispamsniper.com/help/oewm/spamnet.htm

Hmmm...I'll have to look into that when I get home.  I want to say that's an option, and I think my SpamNet option is disabled.  NOt sure though.
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is my desktop email client breaking mail message headers? on: March 10, 2014, 09:02:50 AM
Even more information and now I'm getting confused:
Looking into it more, the email that arrived in my inbox from my non-gmail account is not even being filtered by the Antispam Sniper plugin.  SO now I have to try adding it and see if it still has a problem.  But all this leads me to believe it's the plugin.
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is my desktop email client breaking mail message headers? on: March 10, 2014, 02:18:25 AM
OK, more information:

--it's only affecting my gmail addresses (multiple different ones).  How do I know this?  I sent an email to a non gmail address and it passed through the antispam and everything and came properly to my inbox.  But the gmail headers seem to be received differently.  I'm not exactly sure, but perhaps I changed my authentication settings recently, like changing ssl to startls, or something like that.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is my desktop email client breaking mail message headers? on: March 09, 2014, 06:09:33 PM
Depending on how motivated you are, you could either fire up WireShark to monitor the data stream or you could start simple and just use a different email client to retrieve your mail once and observe the results.
I don't know what Wireshark is, but I just downloaded and will give it a try.

I was so certain it was Bitdefender, but then why did it start 2 days earlier?  And I didn't really install anything else around that time that I can tell.
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Why is my desktop email client breaking mail message headers? on: March 09, 2014, 04:11:15 PM
I've found out that my email client on my desktop computer is doing something like breaking up the mail message headers prior to downloading.  This is causing a problem with my spam detection, and since the antispam plugin is seeing blank headers, all my emails are going to the junk box.  I can't seem to find where the issue is.

Here's my setup:
The Bat! client
Antispam Sniper
Bitdefender Free Antivirus

Now, all this started happening 2/17.  At first I thought it was Bitdefender, because previous to that I was using MSE.  But I installed Bitdefender on 2/19, so that's not it.
Other than that, I can't tell what else I could have possibly done on that date.
Antispam Sniper is flagging everything as spam because it triggers the blank From.  But it's not ASS's fault, it is doing the right thing.  Something else is causing the headers to break up before it even gets to ASS.

I haven't changed any windows firewall settings.

Any suggestions?

If you reply to an email in your inbox, gmail sends that message to archive.  I hate that.  leave it in the inbox, i'll archive when I'm good and ready.  Anyone have a solution for this?
I found it!  There's an option in the general settings for gmail for hiding the "send and archive" button.  Silly gmail.

So instead of just having three simple buttons which would be "intimidating", we have one button...but with a long press option.  Really?  Is that really that much easier.  end rant.

I never had a problem noticing/knowing the difference between the Send & Archive button and just the plain old vanilla Send button. They're right next to each other. It's not that hard to look before you click.
 (see attachment in previous post)
I didn't say it was "that hard".  I think the trick here is that the normal send button may have been there before, and perhaps even blue.  And it got changed, and I didn't notice.

actually...it looks like it's been there since 2009.  I must have changed a setting unintentionally recently.

Only if the button is green and has the words "Don't Panic" next to it.
ha!  but it has to be glossy right?  or are we past that now?  i think we're doing the uniform color simplicity thing now....isn't that what ios5 ushered in?

ok, so the problem is idiot gmail again.

If you reply to an email in your inbox, gmail sends that message to archive.  I hate that.  leave it in the inbox, i'll archive when I'm good and ready.  Anyone have a solution for this?

Interesting. My Gmail has never done that to the best of my recollection. I wonder if there's an option I toggled so long ago that I can't remember doing it.
I found it!  There's an option in the general settings for gmail for hiding the "send and archive" button.  Silly gmail.

This whole 21st century obsession with over-simplifying everything is so extreme to me.  I hate it, but I understand it.  Lots of checkboxes and options that we geeks like is nice for us, but intimidating to others.  So now everything is way too oversimplified and want everything done with one button.  But the problem is that all this technology requires rather complex input from the end user, there's no way around it.  So instead of just having three simple buttons which would be "intimidating", we have one button...but with a long press option.  Really?  Is that really that much easier.  end rant.
