Somewhat related. I noticed that just now a "registered user" was online, Majestic-12 [Bot]
Thanks for the note but I wasn't able to find a user by that name. Maybe Andrew zapped the account on the backend.

Re: Keybase - public key based secure chat

Update: So I've installed the program and so far seems to work well. It looks and behaves a lot like a more secure version of Slack or Stride (formerly Hipchat trying to mimic Slack). The primary selling point here is actually encrypted communications (and not just a secure connection to a server so...

Re: K-Meleon - lightweight web browser

Acknowledging an update is in the works, I went ahead and added a warning to the entry. In browser years, the last release is fairly ancient.

Also, you can Ignore the registration by pressing "CTRL + I" on the registration form.
Help me out here: when does the registration screen appear and when do you pres CTRL+I to bypass it? I'd like to include that in the entry.

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice (adware)

Today I used Softmaker "TextMaker" 2016 and it only saves as DOC, no DOCX Sorry about the misleading info in my previous post No problem. There are some groups and organization that will prefer working with DOC files for compatibility, but it does seem problematic for collaboration. I had a job a f...

Re: BiglyBT - open source bittorrent client

@Midas Good programming is in decline. It's certainly the case that rapid development produces lower quality code. It's also been the case that cross-platform tools are generally bulky and not very efficient. What's new is that every very basic tools are coming out that require really massive syste...

Re: Exiland Backup Free (portable)

I didn't see a nag prompt when I first launched the program. Does that show up in a day or a week? Or after a few launches?

Re: WordWeb - dictionary

Very interesting. Both his "careware" and "freeware bill of rights" are fantastic, not because I agree with them but because he put a LOT of time into that. EDIT: And for something that's kind of the opposite, you can see Google's "ethical" approach to user data collection as some kind of social imp...

Re: WordWeb - dictionary

Continuing on from the posts made in the comments section I had always assumed the license check about the flights was purely about presumed income levels, but it turns out it's more to do with some goal about reducing emissions? Certainly unique among them. I've read a lot of licenses and, yes, th...

Thanks to the developer - Deadmoon, for being so quick at fulfilling users' requests.
Yeah I'm completely blown away that he implemented almost all of the suggestions made apart from the pause bit. That's ... amazing.

I am using free 2016, no ads ... I got clues from these articles in 2016
Nice! Great post. I'm definitely going to use that in the near future for a few programs that just really have no business being online. Thanks for that.

... can we have clicking on file location open the location instead of the file, but clicking file opens the file (currently as is.)
That's a really good idea that could be applied to many programs.
