Re: Re: CLI Database Discussions - defining CLI and GUI

I see anything that can be used/controlled from the command line as CLI to an extent but even a lot of GUI based programs can be used in that way as you've stated. It would just come down to personal preference for inclusion. If the program is first and foremost a GUI based program you could just ad...

Re: Small USB drives

I have several Corsair Flash Voyager drives. The first one I got is 8GB from quite a while ago and still kicking with a LOT of usage. At least 2-3 of the newer ones (32GB+) have failed within 1-2 years with very little use. Makes me wish I had just bought a bunch of the 8GB one back then.

Re: Mediachance Free Software

From the name I was thinking the Free Digital Camera Enhancer was something similar to this --> https://www.rupert.id.au/tutorials/CHDK/index.php . I've used CHDK a few times on my old Canon A610 and it's pretty sweet. Been thinking about trying it out on my Canon SX50HS for lightning pics and such....

Re: First post of topic auto locked after 7 days

Would it be possible to archive an initial post when it's being edited? That way Vevy could still edit the posts but an archive would be available in the event of a problem? I will take a look at this suggestion later.. don't have a clear idea of how that might work. Could be as simple as a screen ...

Re: Internet Archive lawsuit

Damn that is just screwed up thinking from those publishers. Greed plan and simple in my opinion. Sad thing is it's not a surprise with the corporate mentality these days.

Re: VPN experiences so far (seeking recommendations)

With the privacy laws in the U.S. under fire such as the new bill in regard to encrypted devices requiring back doors for law enforcement would it make sense to look for a VPN out of Europe? I recall a few users on this site and others mentioning that the EU has better privacy laws regarding their c...

I was just reading some comments on this over at the Distrowatch site --> https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20200720#comments One of the commenters mentioned that article at theregister as well. I have moved a lot of people over to using LO over the years and OpenOffice before that. I've seen...

Re: Angband

Also, I tried an older version or another variant just before I stopped playing that used the ASCII characters like I remember from a LONG time ago and I just couldn't do it. It had my eyes bugging out and killing me after maybe 20 minutes or so.

Re: Angband

I'm not crazy I swear. Well I am... hehehehe..... I was a bit nervous there. I haven't played 4.2.0 for several months and was thinking of starting a new character and checked the site just in case a new version came out. After getting killed a bunch of times between levels 10-15 because a level 20...

Re: Angband

Still saving the .ini file to the program directory and the save data to the angband/lib/user/save directory for me and I don't see anything in the AppData/Roaming folder unless I missed something.

Re: VidMasta (JRE online video manager)

I tried making a batch file with the -Duser.home=. setting and it still puts the VidMasta directory in appdata/Roaming. I was thinking about trying to start it using the vidmasta.jar file but I'm thinking that may cause issues. Wish I knew more about the programming side to see if I could check that...

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

Nice, that real time view of the graph changing as the input is changed is cool. I stopped doing the Insider Preview some time ago but hope that stays in the final build. The last few systems I upgraded to Windows 10, I just did a clean install and used the Windows 7 Product Key or clicked on the op...
