Re: The spambots are back!

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. I think the bots shown in "registered users" aren't actually registered users. PhpBB just de...

Re: BiglyBT - open source bittorrent client

Some wood to stoke the flames? ;) The desktop belongs to Electron https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/5/16/17361696/ So, to clarify: I’m running a laptop that has an operating system called ' Chrome OS ', which is mostly just Google’s Chrome browser and a little bit of Linux, and now I’m i...

Another possible tweak is to make private entries only visible to logged in members. This means they won't appear in search engines, which should reduce the incentive to cheat?
Sounds good to me. Search engine visibility may well be the most important reason to create spam entries.

Re: Media Player - 32-bit better than 64-bit ?

For video playback, the most likely reason for differences is that some developers have written highly optimized decoding/postprocessing code in assembly. It's possible that someone wrote such code only as 32-bit, and 64-bit builds use slower, generic code instead. Alternatively, it's possible that ...

Re: Is Linux getting friendlier to portability?

Most importantly, a Windows program is bundled with its dependencies, This is only your wet wish, brother. Big percentage of Windows applications rely on libraries installed system-wide (c/win/system32 folder) which is just wrong, because there is no guarantee, that the actual DLL is really install...

Basically, Linux is MORE friendlier to application bundles and addresses portability problem better than Windows. 1. It allows to clearly separate files which belong to application from the rest of the system. 2. It allows to easily create packages for all major Linux distributions (https://github....

Re: Windows File Manager (v3.0 open source!)

According to the README, one of the changes in the improved "v10.0" version is:
moved the ini file location to %AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\WinFile
That suggests that the original_plus version is indeed portable. (AFAIK, in Windows 3.x days, storing settings in program folder was common practice.)

Reiterating what __philippe mentioned above: if the AV has blocked the Meltdown patch from installing, the system isn't vulnerable to Total Meltdown.

Re: Meltdown & Spectre: major chip vulnerabilities alert

It has been discovered that Microsoft's Meltdown patch for Windows 7 caused a much worse vulnerability than Meltdown itself, called Total Meltdown. It has been fixed in a subsequent security update in March. Updating is extremely important!
