Re: ClickMonitorDDC (screen tweaking utility)

This is actually particularly useful, looking over its features, since it can set per-application and even fullscreen-exclusive settings which could be used for specialized tasks such as image editing or video viewing. Very nice find.

Re: Facebook image spying

I have been on FB for years, mainly because most of my friends are. I have used an alias since the beginning and to this day they don't have any phone number of mine. One thing just generally that I think doesn't receive enough discussion in such topics is how other users can 'leak' information in ...

Re: 3D Youtube Downloader

Can anyone explain why, although the individual terms are present in 3DYD database entry, a search for " 3d youtube " comes up empty? It really damages my trust in search results... :( Likely 3d doesn't meet a hidden minimum characters threshold since searching for the string on its own doesn't ret...

Re: Deprecating rank for inactive users

It would be more complex, and not really worth it IMO. It would be possible to generate a list of entries which became private with this de-ranking and share it here in the forums. Perhaps. If it was a small enough collection of entries affected it mightn't matter that much. I guess I'd get a bette...

Re: Deprecating rank for inactive users

Yes, that's the whole point. It seems the core problem described in the OP was specifically if active users want to downvote an entry (due to some current issue/change of license/adware/etc) they can do so without the inactive users' votes counting. However the solution proposed of mass de-ranking ...

Re: Deprecating rank for inactive users

Would this affect the public status of entries solely or partially upvoted by inactive users? That is, when in effect would some entries automatically be made private due to insufficient vote count due to the original users' rank not counting, or would currently public entries remain public?

Re: Pale Moon - web browser

Pale Moon installers from their archived downloads section were infected with a malware dropper, the dev team revealed today . The malware is said to have affected archived downloads from Pale Moon 27.6.2 and below on Dec 27th 2017 (unclear if it continued for versions later than that date as well)....

Re: Dimio's Tools

Deep Explorer is a tool very similar to the Windows Explorer, but it allows you to view and operate on paths much longer than canonical 260 characters of Windows. DExplorer allows you to recover, move and delete files and folders at this level of depth that is not accessible or erasable neither fro...

Re: Tom's Viewer

4. It seems Tom's Viewer uses the themes background as the transparent layer "background" - personally I would prefer the option to see the "standard" checkered background for such images for example on a transparent PNG or PSD I would prefer to see the "checkboard" which is what is often shown in ...

Re: Opera (Presto) - browser listing suggestion

I wish they'd just open source the Presto engine, so able developers could take a go at updating it... *sigh* Well, there was that unofficial leak of the source code but yeah something official would have been better and allowed more to get on board. The contributors to unofficial patches haven't g...

Re: Tom's Viewer

Decent variety of themes. Interesting its dual-purpose with the integrated editing features. Could be useful for various occasional batch tasks.

Re: Do not use Microsoft Store

Thanks for the heads-up about these. Curious about MS hosting them on their Github as well. The non-sale price for the faux ScreenToGif is outrageous but obviously intended to look more attractive on sale. Perhaps you could tip off gHacks or similar about the issue and lack of response. Perhaps it'd...

Re: Opera (Presto) - browser listing suggestion

Where i can download classic opera extensions specially some screenshot tool (similar to fireshot in firefox) Presto extensions still appear in search results via DuckDuckGo/Google/etc but you'd need to know the name of the one you wanted since the Opera.com search hides Presto extensions. A caveat...
