And uses an outdated (missing security fixes) version of Chromium... Why on earth should somebody use such stuff?

Fantastic, this is it :Thmbsup:

Thanks a lot, 4wd!

Living Room / [Solved] Looking for a specific youtube video...
« on: February 12, 2018, 02:33 PM »

It's from one of the casting shows like America's got talent or Britain's got talent (at least I hope so).

A blind young woman is brought on stage by a female assistant. The assistant talks to her all the time and guides her.
"Watch out, here are some steps, ... , the audience is right in front of you". Something like that.

Any hints, tips, links!?! Can't find anything that matches...

T-Clock / Re: T-Clock Broken In Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
« on: October 20, 2017, 03:46 AM »
Which T-Clock version are you using, the one from the x64 or the one from the Win32 folder
and did you really copy the correct x86/x64 version of the msvcr100.dll into that folder /
have the correct bitness version of the Visual C++ package installed?

they have a year of 2TB for $7.

To make sure that people are aware of the limitation for that offer, I'll quote their website:

* The 90% offer is applicable for the first year only. 90% offer is only if you are currently using a competing cloud backup service. You need to provide proof of your existing service provider’s account. Competing services include Carbonite, Mozy, CrashPlan, Backblaze, SOSonlinebackup, Dropbox and Google Backup and Sync.

It'll be in the last place you look, so start there.
Thank you! Unfortunately it isn't there... So I still need more help.
Seeking for it. Tried running. Failed! Runned to try. Asked myself
what this could mean. Failed again! Help?

It uses a Standard Hyper-Index Test (S.H.I.T.)  - essentially a a loop counter - to dynamically assess the number/count of tries on a question-point against the Final Attention Number (F.A.N.) - which is a variable number - a maximum calculated by the PEM. So CONTRO will eventually independently abandon a dead-end line of questioning anyway, when the SHIT hits the FAN.
Best part of!  :Thmbsup:

don't you think
So I'm wrong, this board was converted to a damn chat system?
I must have missed it. Sorry!

Yes, he asks a lot of questions
You mean the many hundreds that search engines would have answered as well?

I guess you don't mind when I do the same in the future. Ignoring any existing
information on the net just to spam the forum and mindlessly replying to my own
posts with useless phrases. Don't you? Great! Looking forward to it...

Btw, I came to this post to ask if someone can give me a hint how to find
the thesis I was working on (on real paper!). I've lost it somewhere.
Maybe the dog ate it? I don't know!
Surely there is some software around that can help me to find it?

Please name it! A search engine was of no help. I promise I'll be running to try
any suggestions!

Just a note to myself: Don't ever let your dog eat something. I should probably
let him starve to death...

I will comment
Just don't!  >:(

This is a forum, not a damn chat system :down:

I will keep trying alone
Please keep that in mind before posting the next 3000 things, you don't want a search engine to feed with...

No help !!!!
You mean the world has finally quit to support your laziness to not research even the most simple things on your own?

Rather unlikely...


A very simple .ahk script, that outputs all command line parameters it receives

Loop, %0%  ; For each parameter:
    param := %A_Index%  ; Fetch the contents of the variable whose name is contained in A_Index.
    MsgBox, 4,, Parameter number %A_Index% is %param%.  Continue?
    IfMsgBox, No

This one will be compiled into "Get command line parameters.exe"

If invoked from a command prompt with:
"R:\Get command line parameters.exe" "arg1" "arg2"
It outputs both arguments correctly

But when I now create a shortcut to the .exe file
"R:\Get command line parameters.exe.lnk"

and put the command line arguments into the target field of this shortcut e.g. with:
"R:\Get command line parameters.exe" "arg1" "arg2"

The called .exe will output: nothing!

Both params aren't passed to the .exe file...

System: Windows Server 2012 R2 U3 x64

Does anyone have an idea on what is causing this behavior?


stores it's setting inside %APPDATA%\etcher?

Very portable, indeed...

35MB vs 1MB (Rufus)

and while Etcher is still "trying" to show it's interface (after doubleclicking the .exe),
I've written half of the netinstall iso (Debian Stretch) to the USB 3 stick (Rufus)

There are things in life that I don't want to waste my time with. Etcher is clearly one of them...

bootup time was less than 1 minute?
Yes, about 58 seconds. I wanted to measure how much time I'm able to shave off :)

What is the Windows version, and what is the CPU of that PC, please?
Windows 7 Pro. AMD Athlon 2 but don't ask which one / MHz...

General Software Discussion / Looking for a new browser
« on: April 05, 2017, 09:54 AM »

My time with Firefox is nearly over (v57 is on the horizon)...

I don't want to share my data with google so Chrome itself is off the table

Is there a browser that is/has/can do/supports

- Respects my privacy
- 100% portable (Windows)
- Fast (no 64-bit necessary)
- Lean, uncluttered interface
- Addon support
- All necessary audio + video codecs
- Maybe based on the blink engine

Last time I tried Chromium (more than one year ago) it
was lacking support for (mainly) video codecs and I guess
that didn't change...

Is there a perfect Chrome derivative that supports all these wishes?

(without SSD < 1 min)
That was correct. I was referring to the time the system needed to boot after
cleaning everything up but without installing the new ssd.

Issue resolved.

Malware Bytes
+ cleanmgr.exe

were enough to remove all unnecessary stuff and left overs.

Afterwards I've installed a new 120 GB SSD and migrated the boot
+ system partitions (and removing + resizing the data partition
on the hdd).

It's a AMD Athlon 2 system on a AM2 board.

Boot time is now ~20 seconds (without SSD < 1 min).

Thanks again!

Thanks for all helpful tips and comments, guys!

Unfortunately we had to postpone the stuff until next saturday. I'll report back if we were able to find the culprit for this behavior with
all these tools! :)

I was asked if I can take a look at a friend's computer this weekend.
Either Vista or Windows 7 is running on it. He isn't at home so I'll know
this when I'm there *yeah*

Is there any windows software that can display which auto-starting things
(processes, auto-start entries) are adding <x> seconds to the boot time?

The PC takes ~ 4 minutes to boot up^^ He defragments the only existing
hdd (1 partition only) regularly so defragmentation shouldn't be the problem...

Under Windows 7 Windows Performance Toolkit could be used to trace
the boot (via xbootmgr) but I hope there is something easier...

Apart from that, can anybody recommend (from personal usage!) an utility
that cleans & defragments the registry but only safe entries. Like WiseCare
et al?

Nice idea.

One issue though...

Windows Server 2012 R2 U1 x64 de-DE
When Calculor is started it "greets" you with a message box:
Sorry, Bub, the colour file list does not exist

Apart from that, a feature request:
The input box should be capable of displaying unicode characters.
E.g. when you use $n and paste a chinese character into the box you'll see only a "..."
Not very informative what you've actually inserted :)

Thanks Renegade.

Unfortunately Localbitcoins doesn't provide any options to buy bitcoins via paypal here in my area...

Anyone interested in a personal exchange? I'd pay 44$ via paypal to get back 40$ in bitcoins (10% fee).

« on: November 10, 2015, 07:21 AM »
Is there any cheap (regarding transaction + exchange fees) and reliable exchange platforms where I can use my paypal account to buy bitcoins? I need about 50$ (orig currency: €) until friday so it shouldn't take to long to approve the payment method. Not something from china if possible... :)
