Just as endnote: Adobe forum thread with clarifications from Dov Isaacs  (mentioned in Forbes article) seems to be deleted.
I wonder if it's not my VPN issue?

The command is called rtfm :D
This made me laugh today when I was reeding it in changelog :)

General Software Discussion / Re: Q: Java for Safari on iPhone4?
« on: January 12, 2013, 09:01 AM »
It never crossed my mind that iPhone wouldn't support Java - the very idea seems unthinkable!
Really? Not a single thought after anti-Flash campaign? :D

These technologies may seem obsolete but I think SJ's reason was rather simple: any non-Apple framework would give users the possibility to install non-amazing apps.

I may apologize for first improper title but I don't feel guilty for spamming. I do not consider it spam.
My posting was more naive than malicious. As wraith808 wrote: I thought it was helpful.

I remember from the past situation where small company called Ritlabs released WinRAR keys for free for one day for everyone.
It quickly had became DDOS for them and I remember waiting more than about 4 hours before I've got my key. Some of my friends were not so lucky.
I thought it may be the same for Adobe.

So as I value people here - after thinking about it - I've shared news. Partially hoping someone will validate it too - for installer and legal side.

I'd like to notice that I hate spam appearing on forum boards. I hate spam in emails (so much that I deleted 90% of my address book because people couldn't stop bothering me).

On the other hand: I will not be surprised when Adobe pulls it back. As matter a fact: I've expected them to do it as quick as it possible and not being quiet for so long.
It may sound like spoiled kid words but I expected them to be "evil" right away. I've been on lot of Adobe seminaries and presentations. And while many companies always tried to be remembered somehow (sometimes by giving goofy stuff like posters or free keys for some quiz winners), Adobe just did their excellent presentations and that is all. I've yet too see Adobe ballpoint ;)

They have awesome evangelists and very good graphic tools. But they also are the kings of the hills sometimes.

As for title: it's up to mouser to decide.

I agree with you but we are living in he world where you subscribe games (Steam does not sell games any more) and some people need warnings on hot coffee cups.

I am waiting for tomorrow to see if I will have to uninstall it but something interesting from forbes comments and from here:

The licence terms which you agree to when you install this software say your use of the software is legal if you have “obtained” it from Adobe. It doesn’t say “purchased” or “bought”. If they want to make it illegal, they must change the licence. Until they do, saying that it’s illegal in a forum post doesn’t make it illegal. It certainly appears that it’s not what they intended, but that’s different.

No high hopes now though.

And I agree for changing thread titles…

For me it would be Axialis IconWorkshop. I think I had bought it through BitsDuJour and found out how overrated it is.

Very rare updates which brings almost nothing new. I admit that some time ago they have changes UI completely but other news were only icon packs.
Few years ago someone requested layers support and they did not implement it so far but gave Image Objects instead. And this is just drag'n'drop + Explorer panel.
There is still no nice mouse scroll zoom and tablet support is little bit strange.

I have it more than year and I recollect using it about 5 times. More often I create icons with Inkscape + Greenfish Icon Editor which are free.

Forbes has now Schrödinger's cat on their page ;)


They should,  least, use < s > tag for old info…

If you have AdobeID:
Took me 10 minutes to see it.


You've got it correctly.

Not 100% accurate quote but close enough for me:
Science adjusts its views based on what's observed. Faith is the denial of observation so that belief can be preserved.
-Tim Minchin

Sadly, since I had heard about dark mass and dark energy (and other dark mambo-jumbo), I've realized that current science is more like religion with pretty strange base.
Black holes with mass so big that nothing can escape… wait! They can radiate.
Lots of particles building world… wait! It does not sum up! OK now we have dark mass. Still not working… dark energy for rescue!
Nothing can be faster than light… OK tachyons.
Absolute zero? Now we have negative temperatures which are hotter than infinity. Seriously? Is it still math?

Eh, I am no longer even sure what am I complaining about.

Although I am spaghetti master I would recommend to look here:
Just throw few c# sources from Internet into it to see general styles.

Also worth to check:

I am starting to be sure that this is anti-stuff issue.
Lot of protection apps try to access (unpack) archives on file read into memory which may slow everything else down.

I've just checked my Comodo suite (enabled packed files deep scanning) and it truly freezes my PC.
Tested with Total Commnder/XYplorer and folders with lot of packed files. Of course, I had to remove their executables from exclusions list.

or perhaps bad some bad anti-malware stuff.

well, the company does use mcafee ;D
Try to change its settings.

I had WinXP and McAfee on old work laptop and it also was going fully white sometimes:

I don't recall exactly how I fixed it (although it was before new hardware) but I know I played with antivirus configuration.

Nothing new here - restart can be productive.
Well, such good results are the only thing that justifies going for smoke at work…

Just wondering: does Cody still own Polish emblem?

BTW It is still some sort of miracle for me that he haven't been lost in mail hell ;)

All depends on how you write the date. I like the ISO YMD (YYYY-MM-DD).
The Date Format That Makes Sense™ <3 :)
Completely agree.
And that's the only one easily manageable.

Please re-download.
If that's still not working I will check it in weekend on my work laptop.

Sometimes I have pretty simple work to do which requires same things over and over again.
Because of that I've decided to write down small tool to make my life easier.
Maybe someone else will find it useful too.

  • conversions between encodings - completely free replacement for Gżegżółka tool,
  • HTML encodings - direct and with files,
  • multi-file creation - copy file from Templates folder according to specified name pattern,

Planned Features
Pretty much all is done but still needs a lot of testing and some polish.
And I am always open to suggestions.

Just unpack ZIP file to accessible directory.

Using the Application
Should be self-explanatory but I will try to put some info online if needed.

Just delete.


Known Issues
Not fully tested so there may be some issues to discover.
The only one I may foresee is "strange Win7 .NET error" which I saw in the past for BBCeditor.

Would 12.21.12 formatting, i.e. multiple decimal formats with successive decimal places in fractional terms of their predecessors, actually have any mathematical value? It certainly would be a curiosity, though decimal numbers certainly wouldn't cut it. How many number systems would you need? Could it cut down on complexity? Well, up to base-64 certainly, but beyond that? Nah... I don't think it's really useful. Well. That was a fun brain fart. :D

Mix it with smelly date formatting - not everyone on Earth use mm.dd.yyyy.
