Ironically, I believe the only thing I have installed from the Windows store is Ubuntu for WSL.

Great job :Thmbsup:.

I think the problem is not so much the risk for the average user to get hit by this on his home computer (outside of browsers), but that half the web runs on AWS/Azure/Whatever, so the average user could get hit by extension when the servers running the websites they use potentially leak passwords and personal data.

Updated Atom and VS Code themes out, and a more recent screenshot in the original post.

Thanks  :-*.

I made a minor update to the VS Code version, adding colors for the overview ruler (bar next to scrollbar), peek view (when you right-click a symbol and peek), and the git markers in the gutter.

Fiddling with the Atom version atm, but the docs are a bit less clear on what you can do.

I've made a simple homepage for the theme with some instruction on how to use it:


I tried making a version of Solarized Minimal for Atom as well, it should be available from the internal package manager :Thmbsup:.

Interesting mix of ideas. It looks a bit like a cross between markdown and reStructuredText.

This is somewhat unrelated to this project in particular, but I was checkout it out on GitHub, and I hope you do not mind, but I would like to suggest considering putting a summary of each commit in the first line of your git commit messages. It makes it easier to quickly see what has changed, both on GitHub, but also if you do "git log" from the command line.


Solarized is a popular color theme available in many text editors. The palette contains only 16 colors, which are used both in a dark (pleasant at night) and light (easy to read in bright daylight) version. The magic is that the accent colors are chosen so they appear the same in both versions.


I have been using it for over five years now, and a while back I created my own version for Sublime Text. You might wonder why add another version of a theme that is already present by default? Mostly because I feel many versions of Solarized are too complex -- they try to assign colors to everything in every language. So I set out to try to make a minimal version, one that attempts to assign styles primarily to the root groups described in the TextMate documentation (which is where the file format for color themes used in many editors comes from).

The last year I have been using VS Code as my primary text editor, so I created a version of Solarized Minimal for my own use. Now that new year is ominously close (and I haven't finished a NANY project :-[), I cleaned up and packaged the theme.

For now, only the colors of the editing window are changed, while the surrounding areas (tabs, info line, dialogs) are kept in the default UI colors. I've been debating with myself if it looks better to also change them (like the default Solarized theme does), but I feel it becomes a little too much.

You can install it from within VS Code by going to the extension tab and searching for Solarized Minimal. Then select either version using File->Preferences->Color Theme.

I used Vegas 11 to edit family videos some years ago (back then it was owned by Sony). For my needs it was overkill, but it was a pleasure to use.

  - that the software will stop working if the all access is not renewed

I couldn't find any direct answer to this either, but I liked this bit from their blog post announcing the all access subscription:

"I'm worried what will happen to my stuff if I stop subscribing."

You can cancel your subscription anytime, and you won't lose the documents you created. You'll still be able to open your files in a boxed copy of any of our programs or other applicable programs.

Nice to know your text files will continue to work :P.

$80 once, giving lifetime keys for their entire catalogue! That should be a fine offer.

Please note, that is $80 per year.

It's that time of year again, and here are the usual suspects from my email/twitter:

€50 plus VAT upgrade is probably too much for me to get an optional ribbon interface. But maybe there will be a sale sometime later :up:.

Developer's Corner / Some talks from CppCon 2017
« on: October 21, 2017, 11:44 AM »
I've been watching some of the talks from this years CppCon on YouTube, and mouser encouraged me to post a few links. There are a lot of interesting videos, and if you are interested in C++ programming, I encourage you to check out their channel for other videos. These are just a few picks I found interesting.

Living Room / Re: For those with a CrashPlan...
« on: August 27, 2017, 11:56 AM »
There are quite a few aspects to such software that factor in (at least for me). I know CrashPlan used quite a lot of memory (here it's sitting at ~500mb), but as long as it's not getting in my way I can live with that. The same goes for bandwidth and CPU usage, the most important thing really is that I do not notice it's running.

One thing I also want is some kind of "time machine" functionality. I do not want to risk a file being overwritten (either by accident or malware) and some simple backup tool simply duplicating that remotely. Ideally there should be some way to go back to how the file was a week or a month ago. Most of these tools seem to support this somehow.

Then there is the storage question. Many of them promise "unlimited" storage, but have some small print that allows them to weed out anyone who uses more than what they deem "regular use". This is one area where I like SpiderOak's approach -- they offer you a set amount of storage, and then don't have to care how many computers or NAS drives you attempt to backup. On the other hand their tiers are somewhat more expensive than the "unlimited" ones. Also, as mentioned, they sometimes run promotions where you can get an "unlimited" account from them as well, and that is where I got mine. I haven't backed up more than ~120gb currently so I have no idea at what point they might start to question your usage.

I have a license for xplorer2 as well, and use it as my second file manager beside TC :Thmbsup:. It's a shame there is never a discount for the lifetime upgrade protection, or I might have gotten that.

Some of the other services also appear to smell fresh meat:

Came here to post about this as well. Sad to see CrashPlan stop their consumer service, for my needs they have worked really well. I have an "unlimited" SpiderOak backup running as well, so I will probably just use that when CrashPlan stops working.

They point users to Carbonite, but that looks somewhat too much geared towards people who have no idea what they want and just need their Documents folder saved. Also the Basic tier seems to require you to manually add every video file you wish to backup :huh:.

I also have Arq, which I use for small backup sets, it works quite well :Thmbsup:.
