Screenshot Captor / Re: Google Drive Option
« on: December 23, 2018, 09:14 AM »
Easiest way I know of to do this would be to use Google Drive's Backup and Sync program.

During the install and setup of it it asks which folders you wish to sync.  Just choose to include your screenshot folder

I've never heard of such a thing in web programming, where the pics and other elements are not embedded within the page's code - would that be even possible? -, but linked, for separate download indeed (i.e. all the pic or other code is within its own, dedicated file), be that from the same server or from others

Yes it is possible and used most the time
<img src="example.png" />
the page code does not include the image directly although that is possible too.

Embedding the image would be more like this
<img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAZAAAADSCAMAAABThmYtAAAAXVB" />
Lets assume the web developer didn't base64 encode all his images. When loading a web page your browser opens up a few http/https connections to download/stream the resources (The browser downloads a stream of bytes for the image in this case)

Now the same can be done with javascript scripts
<script src="./ads.js"></script>

Now an adblock program of some kind may assume that ads.js contain well ads and prevent the browser from requesting the resource.
The server doesn't need to know if the resource was requested or not.   Assuming ads.js is an adblock detector script; if the ads.js was requested then the browser would execute the javascript and remove the content dynamically that shows the real page content vs the adblock in use content.  Only when that "fake ad" script gets loaded does the real content get shown.

While there will be exceptions to this, it is the general basis on how to detect adblock is to leverage the blocklists and load fake ad scripts that when blocked from being downloaded and executed the content doesn't show.

Now to the discussion about AdGuard. 
I noticed that some adblock detectors will still pick it up others won't.  Also the https filtering works by MITMproxy and installing its own root certificate into the system.

Correct, I'm using the context menu's copy link/copy shortcut options for the test, not the select and copy method.

Interesting that Edge and IE will convert it when copying it that way.

Actually the point I was driving at is the Windows shell itself fell for the exploit when I put the link on the Windows Clipboard and pasted it into the FireFox address bar. FF never got a chance to pass/fail, it was just being used for an edit field.

Case in point, copy the link to the clipboard and paste it into Notepad … It comes off the clipboard as

I really don't believe this is the case as other browsers fail (pass) when copying the link that way.  Also since copying from URL bar doesn't do it also its more of just the "copy link" feature in Edge and IE.  I tested in chrome as 3rd party browser and it doesn't convert it before it goes to clipboard.

Jack and jack stands are useful too, an get a floor jack for pretty cheap.

But basic things like plugs wires, oil, air filter, radiator fluid, transmission filter are all good things to know.

I'm not a car person either however I do know how to do all the things listed. Thanks to youtube and actually doing it

Costwise a plugs and wires dealship wants $300 to do, can easily do it for <= $100

Only thing is have to take the oil and such for proper disposal your self.

General Software Discussion / Re: HSPA+:15 What does it mean?

I'm going to guess T-Mobile as that's what they use for 4G areas that do not support LTE yet or if device doesn't support LTE.  Just a guess.

Late last year, Panda Security released a Social Media Risk Index that shows Facebook was the leader in malware threats at 71.6 percent, YouTube came in at 41.2 percent and Twitter recorded a 51 percent risk for privacy violations.   And 33 percent of SMBs who typically have security technology in place for their users report financial losses to their business as a result of social media-based malware infection.   According to a new study from comScore, more women use social networking sites and spend more time on these sites than men do.  The study concluded that 76 percent of women spent time on social media sites compared with 70 percent of men, and women spent 5.5 hours a month on these sites compared to only 4 hours a month for men.

Found on Chicalogic press release

I can see their logic from a business aspect to use the same appeal for woman products with security software to try and get more users to actually use some protection.

Thanks, I will most likely post it on the Minecraft forums too. :)

N.A.N.Y. 2014 / NANY 2014 Submission: Minecraft Mod ServerGitBackup
« on: December 03, 2013, 01:28 PM »

NANY 2014 Entry Information

Application Name ServerGitBackup
Version 1.0
Short Description Allows backing up of a Minecraft server to a git repository using in game commands
Supported OSes Windows, Linux, MacOS
Web Page https://bitbucket.or...rgitbackup/wiki/Home
Download Link https://bitbucket.or...rgitbackup/downloads
System Requirements
  • Minecraft
  • Minecraft Forge for 1.6.2 or 1.6.4
  • Git
Version History
  • 1.0
Author hollowlife1987

This mod allows Minecraft server administrators access to backup their server through easy in game commands
I needed this mod since at first I was just going to use a shell script while I was able to get it working on Linux I could not so on Windows
So I decided I would make my first Minecraft mod to do what I needed it to do.

I know git is not the best solution for this problem and I'm all ears for better solutions.

  • Initialization of a git repository
  • Manual backup to git repository
  • Hourly backup to a git repository

Planned Features
Other methods of backup.

After forge is installed on server copy .jar to mods folder

Using the Application
Use the command
Code: Text [Select]
  1. /sgb init
While in game to create a new git repository for your server followed by
Code: Text [Select]
  1. /sgb autobackup on
To create the first backup and a new backup once an hour.

Delete the jar from the mods folder.

This is my first mod so expect some bugs

Known Issues
Sometimes the first backup must be created using git out of game.  No .gitignore file just the following commands
Code: Text [Select]
  1. git add -A
  2. git commit -m "First backup"
If you feel you have the issue where you must do this ensure your server is not running.

As far as I know, only catch is your bound to the license for life, and you have to promote the program among your network of friends / web programmers / designers.

EDIT: I'm sure there are other catches I've forgotten about I'll have to re-read the agreement again to check as I've signed up a couple months ago.

When talking to Krish and Stephen on IRC I informed them of a program Microsoft offers called WebsiteSpark

WebsiteSpark gives small Web development and design companies a jumpstart by providing free tools, technologies and resources to build great websites.

It includes software such as Windows Server 2012 Standard (5 keys none the less) and Visual studio 2012 Professional and other development software.
So if your an independent developer with a tight wallet or a small startup company on a budget this is perfect for you.

I am not an employee of Microsoft or any subsidiary

Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Adapt to windows 7 64 bits

Replace the line

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. ControlGetText, DesPath, Edit1, ahk_id %WinID%


Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. WinGetTitle, DesPath, ahk_id %WinID%

I do not know if it will still work on XP or not with that change but it works on my install of windows 7 x64

I was able to extract with 7zip and WinRAR, as for download URL, i noticed you posted the URL using all lowercase letters. I was able to download by changing the file name to in the URL

How about an Extension Method?


Yes, you can still send messages without using the mouse, as cyberdiva said.

After ensuring keyboard shortcuts are enabled see here for list of keyboard shortcuts to use with gmail.

Are google the new microsoft?
seeming more like that to me every day.
Well Google's stock is worth more than Microsoft's right now from what I can tell.  :P

Could do this if my program wont wipe the full drive, as I know it overwrites the MBR very easily

It opens the disk.sys driver and has disk.sys write to the hard drive(s).
But as i said I couldn't get it to wipe the full disk but i don't know what it missed.

I need to speed it up as testing takes too long 10+ hours.

It uses some undocumented API as well.

OK I have been working on a program that will wipe the disk from within windows and so far it almost works only a few things right now that need to be addressed with it.

1.) Speed - It took over 10 hours to almost wipe a 8GB vmdisk
2.) Possible use in malware -  very easy to wipe the mbr and more with this so far.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I don't know if I will be releasing this due to the possible use in malware.

The only way I found that I was able to actually wipe the drive while it was in use was the "shred" command

shred -f -z -v -u /dev/sda

Replace "/dev/sda" with what ever block device you wish to wipe.

Please note: This command will take a VERY VERY long time.

Yes the previous owner of the server did have windows on it, in fact it looked a lot like a desktop computer based on the pictures I started recovering with photorec which is part of the testdisk package.

Don't let the program name fool ya photorec can restore a lot more than photos it can restore a bunch of file formats including MSSQL databases.

Living Room / Interesting Discovery Involving Rented Servers
« on: April 29, 2009, 09:00 AM »
OK Gothi[c] and I were having a little chat in the IRC chat about old data on servers and how to remove it.

So I decided to see if I could find any data from the dedicated server my friend just got, sure enough I found a lot of interesting and weird data....

Bottom line is if your going to cancel a server from a company make sure you wipe the hard drive(s) before you do as most companies just repartition and format the drive they don't wipe any data off it.

That means your passwords, your emails, pictures and what ever else that was on the server still could be accessible, on the flip side that means if someone before you had illegal data on the server and your server gets seized for what ever reason.

You COULD be held accountable for the data that THEY had on it.

So when you getting a new rented server make sure you wipe the drive before you lose access.
And when getting a new rented server make sure you/your host wipes the drive before you start putting your data on it.

Howdy yall, erm, hi everyone i just wanted to start a new thread since i got a major makeover and if anyone else gets one or had one post pics story or what ever. :)

so i went from this

to this

what do you guys think also post some of your extreme change story can be anything from appearance to what you drive or computer or anything at all :)

What a partition maps to while Windows is running has nothing to do with the partition itself. The issue is that the Win7 installer of course overwrites your MBR bootcode (like all new Windows versions does), and that it doesn't included previous versions in it's boot manager - but you should be able to add those by hand with the bcdedit program.

I am currently triple booting flawlessly.  I do not remember if I installed XP SP3 first or Win 7 Beta x64, but I am pretty sure I did XP.  I also have Win 7 Beta x86 installed and I can easily boot into the XP install using Win 7's boot loader, it asks for earlier versions of windows upon start up.
