What's weird about that is that I wasn't able to find ANY info about The Marvellous Suspender being temporarily blocked or removed from the Chrome Web Store...
well, its back again this morning, but I'll be watching with interest to see what happens...-Target (March 08, 2021, 04:09 PM)
the saga continues...I wanted to shout some curse words in Chrome's general direction, but then I found that my Chrome hasn't disabled it and the extension page (https://chrome.googl...imajpfpamcfhoaifemoa) is still up. Was it just a glitch in the Matrix? Can you check if it's working again for you?
Chrome disabled the marvellous suspender this morning... <sigh>-Target (March 07, 2021, 10:05 PM)
From the acclaimed filmmaker behind Mr. Six comes a riveting war epic. In 1937, eight hundred Chinese soldiers fight under siege from a warehouse in the middle of the Shanghai battlefield, completely surrounded by the Japanese army.It's like... Band of Brothers meets Dunkirk... in China! Okay, okay... it's not quite as good, but really good if you can overlook that it was clearly (mostly) made for a Chinese audience.
Guan Hu had been preparing for the film for 10 years. The Eight Hundred is the first Chinese and Asian film shot entirely on IMAX cameras. The production team had built a real scene of 68 buildings with an area of 133,333-square-metre (1,435,180 sq ft) in Suzhou, east China's Jiangsu province.That's impressive, and I bet https://en.wikipedia...i/Chinese_numerology had something to do with that square meter number.
Maggie Lee of Variety describes the film as "monumental, if sometimes unwieldy" and comparing The Eight Hundred to Dunkirk, "the saga does share similar sentiments of survival, grit and triumph in defeat" to Dunkirk (2017) and "it too plunges audiences into both the intimacy and magnitude of brutal war spectacle while immersing them in a stunningly mounted period canvas."
Cath Clarke of The Guardian praised the film, characterizing it as an “Ear-rattling, breathtaking battle for [the] Chinese Alamo” and stating that “Guan goes hammer and tongs with the special effects, delivering stupendously, joint-rattlingly-loud battle scenes and combat sequences edited to the lightning pace of a superhero movie.” and “with so much intense focus lavished on the action, there’s none to spare for the characters’ emotional lives, and it’s hard to care much about who lives or dies.”
Michael Ordoña of the Los Angeles Times criticized the film’s character development, stating, “Unfortunately, “Eight Hundred” skips over the whole character-development part, along with the logic of many choices and scenes. “ and “Yet somehow, we don’t get to know any of these folks. The sort-of protagonists are a collection of deserters and draft-dodgers forced to aid with the defense.”
In its "Find" window (Ctrl-f) it does not seem to be possible to permanently disable "Search subdirectories", but other than that it's love at first sight.But at least one can use the Filter (Ctrl-F12) to only show matching files in a given folder.-brotherS (January 26, 2021, 02:11 PM)
In trying to remember the *Commander options, I ran across one that I think I'll try. The price tag is a bit extreme (up there with DOpus), but it is a perpetual license, unlike DOpus. https://fman.io/I used to use DOpus many years ago (loved it!), but there came a time where I couldn't justify the cost anymore, for what I used it for.-wraith808 (January 26, 2021, 02:17 PM)
There's also Multi Commander (free, donationware), favourably mentioned by Shades in Re: Batch file to move files (less than total size) from A to B, along with a link to 26 third-party file managers.Thanks for the link.
But, from the OP, is a FM really what you want? The task sounds rather like backup/directory synchronization, e.g. by something like Karen's Replicator (free, donationware)-rjbull (January 26, 2021, 02:27 PM)
brotherS: it would be nice if you could check if Windows Defender moans about a fresh 1.40 download from the dcmembers site, as well as SJ's uncompressed buildI just downloaded and ran both, no objections from Windows so far...-f0dder (November 14, 2020, 11:54 AM)
Caution: Theory AheadI've already excluded the fSekrit folder from AV checks ... but ...
Maybe it's just that the encrypted contents of the file now match the file pattern of Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.C!ml and rearranging the order of the information would 'fix' the problem?-4wd (November 10, 2020, 03:01 PM)
...maybe a 1.41 release would help, where the only change would be "now without compression, with greetings to AV software"?Seems like anything packed with UPX makes AV go squirrel shit.Sigh.-Stoic Joker (November 11, 2020, 05:40 AM)
fSekrit uses PECompact and not UPX, but same same
I did ponder a bit whether to continue using executable compression – one of the points of fSekrit is to be tiny, but the savings might not be worth it compared to hassle from shitty AV software... And the 1.40 exe would still be < 100kb without compression.-f0dder (November 12, 2020, 11:33 AM)
Report it, I guess?Since the file contains personal information I'd rather not send it to Microsoft.-wraith808 (November 10, 2020, 09:57 AM)
my own local copy of fSekrit isn't flagged (Win10 19041.572, and recent Defender definitions, (I hope))Interesting... Win10 19041.572 here too. Maybe it somehow depends on the file size if Windows detects it as a trojan? Weird...-f0dder (November 10, 2020, 11:40 AM)
Yeah... I also remember applying the just give up 'solution' in the past. I just ignored it, deep in its directory path.For a GUI, try Helge Klein SetACL Studio. It will delete anything. Product page here, no cost (used to be commercial).-x16wda (October 06, 2020, 05:58 AM)
Last year I had one folder it couldn't delete, couldn't do anything with it.
Can't remember what happened in the end, think I gave up and reinstalled Windows or formatted the drive.
Most obstinate file/folder I've had in 40+ years of playing with computers 🤣-4wd (November 09, 2020, 03:57 PM)
For a GUI, try Helge Klein SetACL Studio. It will delete anything. Product page here, no cost (used to be commercial).I found two more folders that couldn't be deleted, but this time on external drives, not C: - this time, rmdir failed twice, but SetACL Studio got the job done. NICE!-x16wda (October 06, 2020, 05:58 AM)
do you guys hoard a lot of stuff as wellNah... after taking care of my 93 Rolls-Royces became too arduous, I now only hoard digital stuff.-tomos (October 31, 2020, 09:28 AM)
On my lazy days I close the browser in my computers using Windows Task Manager or the infinitely better Process Explorer. This leaves the tabs intact and as browsers do a thing called 'lazy loading' of content in tabs, closing and re-opening browsers is hardly an issue. 'Lazy loading' means loading content when the tab is actually selected and not before.Yes, Process Explorer is great to kill Chrome in a way that it will re-open all tabs 99% of the time. I use it for every reboot.-Shades (October 30, 2020, 08:02 PM)
