Living Room / [ImageShack hack] Blog hack? Please help!
« on: July 11, 2009, 12:17 AM »
Anybody know where I can find out what this means?
I found it on my little sister's blog, it doesn't look like anything she'd post.
If you just scroll down a bit, you can see this image.
If it's a hack, can they do any damage? Thanks for looking...

General Software Discussion / WMP & lots of tiny .wav files
« on: July 08, 2009, 11:18 PM »
I'm trying to learn French on this web site.

This site has a TON of small .wav files (for example, one for each letter of the alphabet), & every time I click the 'sound' button, I'm downloading it.
I tried to see if I could change this in FF Download Manager, but I can't.

Do I really have to download .wav files just to hear the sounds? I just want to hear them, not keep them.

If I'm only using these lessons at home on my pc, does it matter which format I use? They give you a choice of .mp3 or .wav.
(I have never used an mp3 file!)

Also, I have JRiver Media Center, should I be using that, instead?

Any suggestions appreciated  :)

I use gmail.

The sender's name is an obvious sign that they're a spammer.
But, I'm wondering where the spammer picked my friend's email address up.

Does anyone think maybe my gmail address book, or his, has been hacked?
Or worse, our Outlook address books?

I'm hesitant to open it, just to see what it says.
I've heard of worms that have the friend's address in the sender field, but not in the subject.

If this is a known phishing tactic, please forgive me.
I've never read phishing articles, I can spot a phishing email a mile away.


Living Room / Software licence swap? E-draw Max
« on: April 16, 2009, 11:28 PM »

I have a $100 piece of software (E-draw max) but I never use it.
I trialed it, but didn't have the time to explore its features; when I went to try it again, they said I had to buy the software in order to use it.
Fair enough. From all the information given on their web site, I was sure this software would be easier to use...but, it's not.
I'm more partial to Do-organizer's mindmap/flowchart feature, it's much better for me, even if it doesn't have all the bells and whistles.

I've contacted companies before and they have allowed me to transfer licences with no problem in the past, so I'm not looking for anything that would be against a software company's wishes. I've learned that no matter what they state in the licence agreement, they seem to really appreciate being asked and on both occasions, I've got the go-ahead from them.  :Thmbsup: Conceptworld is one of those companies  :)  .

Also, the software I'd consider swapping does not have to be worth $100, I just state its price to emphasize the waste of money.

I don't have any particular software in mind that I want (except perhaps, InfoSelect, and nobody uses that).
I just got a web domain for my birthday, so something for that would be cool, but I'm kind of burnt out on software in general, so I might even end up giving this away. I really just hope I can find someone who really wants E-draw Max.

Let me know. Thanks.

Please don't tell me to Google this; I did, & am more confused now than ever.
Besides, I'd rather have it explained to me by DCers.
