I've used the program, plus others, but of all the options it fits my needs the best. I dislike the installer which is Open Candy or whatever, however it is straightforward to opt out of the "extras".

I also donated once and got the same message. After the thank-you period ends, it's back to business as usual with the standard installer.

I don't see the horsie tail on the subwoofer.  :o

Thanks. I have been using the 3.0 version for years, and the 2.0 version before that.

Thanks for the link Shades - I haven't needed anything other than what Blat offers yet, but I'll need to play with CMail now since it has TLS support. Always good to have more tools in the toolbox!

I always use blat.exe to send emails from the command line. Much faster and more straightforward. The site used to be which will lead you to an older but still perfectly useable version on sourceforge, but the distribution of newer releases these days is from a yahoo group named blat-Discussion. Most recent update was June 16.

I dunno, Steph, looks pretty viscous to me!

Taylor, our somewhat timid Golden, heads to her crate when she need peace. I wish I could get half as peaceful as she does...  :D


Nice find! Now I'm hungry again, though... :up:

If you use Chrome, look for Lazarus Form Recovery (patched). It has saved my bacon numerous times when our in-house track-everything system was having some... err... difficult times.  :P

His website's there...

I especially like the Testimonials on every page of the website... every one a junk link for some UK pharma site. :o

I've been using Ditto for a number of years (Yankee Clipper before that) and it has worked great except for an occasional fugue state (once every couple months), but I restart it and go on. Seeing this thread got me to looking around at alternatives.

The killer feature I use all the time is sending a clip to another pc. A couple of other clip managers will do something like that but not as cleanly - Clipboard Fusion syncs clips to its web site (!) to get to another machine, Clipboard Manager uses your choice of web drive, ArsClip requires all the machines to run from the same shared folder. And many seem to have (arbitrary and small) limits on how many clips they allow.

I'm open to change, but I don't want to lose functionality or add restrictions.

General Software Discussion / Re: TeamViewer hacked?
« on: June 05, 2016, 10:52 AM »
There's a couple of possible explanations, but the TeamViewer folks haven't exactly been informative so far.

The two most likely are:
1) a (really!) badly designed protocol or (more likely) programming flaws that can be exploited remotely to circumvent the password checks.
2) that TV doesn't rate-limit connection attempts, letting attackers brute-force weak passwords.
#1 would be bad, but #2 would be shameful.

So when I use TeamViewer to connect to one of my family's pcs, I need to either know credentials for the PC, or have to get the user to say OK before I can connect. What am I missing? Is everyone's desktop unlocked, or you have a no password required setting somewhere?

As a matter of habit I always do:   sc config wuauserv type= own

That causes Windows Update to at least run in its own separate process (after a reboot).

You could also try the Windows Update Troubleshooter from the link.

Living Room / Re: Goodbye to my father
« on: May 24, 2016, 08:09 PM »
So sorry. My Dad has been gone 20 years now, but I think of him whenever I see a plant or bird that I can name, or a book that we both read. I am so grateful that his path and mine crossed (besides the obvious).

He will be missed. And now the world will only know him through his reflection in you.

Best wishes for a difficult time.

I got a score of 93% and was considered a PHD. I got a BA, the test is too easy.

My 87% ranked as a PhD too. I think I got half of the literature questions wrong. ;D

Living Room / Re: Be prepared against ransomware viruses..
« on: April 25, 2016, 07:34 PM »
The basics of what it does is prevent things from running from strange places - like temp folders, etc - and also prevents some sensitive utilities (like vssadmin that could delete all your shadow copies) from running. The pay-for add-on is I think a signature service but I'm not completely clear on exactly what it does - it likely has known-good and known-bad lists. In an enterprise you could do a lot of this with group policy and file server management tools, but CryptoPrevent is more flexible and quick to manage if need be, and it works fine on non-domain-joined computers.

I have the paid version of cryptoprevent

Me too. Family pack, on everyone's PC.

That said I've installed the free version on a number of, shall we say, "historically proven at risk users", thinking that any help at all these types can get is good. :-)

Lexar S75 256GB USB3.0 for US$49.99 (Free shipping if USA, US$5.23 for Australia for example).

Looks like a nice deal.  But I swore I would never buy a "sliding guts" design again.  First one broke.  Second one almost broke my thumb every time I inserted it.  I like the solid body type like s102 AData.

I don't like the sliding guts design either, although my recent Lexars of this same design (a 32g and a 64g) have worked fine. In the end, what you really have is a usb stick in a sliding case. And you can remove the case if you want. (So I ordered 2 of these because I need them anyway and the price is decent.)

What dluby said.

Turns out Amazon accepted my order, but came back a day later and said "Sorry, we don't actually have this for you any more." Hmph.

It is an exe with no install.

Always nice to find. Thanks.

Supposedly there is only one left. 

So I just ordered that one... and there's still one left folks!  ;D   That calls for a round of...
