Re: China blocks TLS 1.3

Global politics aside, the power of the few big tech firms are terrifying. We have all read news about how small companies get destroyed when they disappear off Google's search results, or Apple takes down an app from their app store. A friend told me recently an app developed by an acquaintance's s...

Closure of "Portable Apps That Run Under Emulation"

The mods are thinking of closing down Portable Apps That Run Under Emulation because it has been pretty much dormant for many years, and moving all the existing topics elsewhere. From that looks of it, I am thinking mostly to the Chit-Chat forum, maybe a few to Resources & Links . If you have any ob...

I meant the font for code boxes :oops:
Done. Might have to clear browser cache to load the updated CSS.

As for the [ pre ] tag, thank you! (No text background?)
Nah.. since it's inline, don't think it'd look good.

Hey, Andrew.
can you make the [ pre ]-formatted text more distinguishable?
Like this is preformatted text?

Re: CLI Database Discussions

About "alternativeto.net", I actually went a little further this morning, signed up for an account and poked around. If any of you have any insider information, I am all ears. But here are some of my thoughts: - I don't think what you see is 100% crowd-sourced. There's definitely some kind of algo b...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

What do you think of similar projects: like the tag system of alternativeto.net, or similar applications of "use cases" (with or without aliases)? Actually under the hood, alternativeto.net has 2 functions: 1. Categories. So when I hit say "Adobe Photoshop", it will also show me Gimp, Paint.net etc...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

@vevy: I am glad we did this entire exercise with use cases to explore what could be done, but at this point I think I have a pretty good idea of what you have in mind. Technical difficulties aside, my opinion is that what you have in mind is nice, but doomed to failure. One analogous example spring...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

From your experience, if it works with XP and 10, how often does it not work with something in between? It's true. In all probability, it's only the lower and upper bound that counts. I can't think of any example where say, it works for WinXP to Win10, EXCEPT Win7. :D Not one per line. Every relate...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

I need a page to view all the "Use cases" in use (with use counts) and assign them to categories. For example: the image use case, the text editing use cases. This is very important for organization to make them work meaningfully. Should be doable. Will work on that. In the entry editing/view, ther...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

However, the way the System Requirements part of the entry currently works would force me to try it or search for documentation for compatibility with all systems since 95 and Wine. The way I understand it currently, not checking say "Win95" means either "Not compatible" or "Unknown" or "Don't care...

One little thing about the shadow topic thing is that it appears in all forums, not just CLI ones.
I have fixed this.

I will take a look at the rest later in the evening...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Yeah! Indentable (check), different background (check). I kinda liked the point-smaller font of the quote tag too. Maybe enable [size] and [color] tags? But no biggie if it is going to be too much trouble. Use [ size=n ], where n=1 (smallest) to 7 (largest). Use it before [section] to ignore the fi...
