Re: Problems with site features in Firefox

Thanks for the input. After disabling uBlock and NanoDefender without visible results, I disabled the dozen or so extensions I have one by one and reloaded TPFC main page and finally found the culprit, which I promptly removed. :oops: FTR, it was this one: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/yess...

[solved] Problems with site features in Firefox

Following a recent catastrophic crash of my main laptop, I've been compelled to use a different computer with has no SeaMonkey for my interaction with TPFC. What I am reporting here isn't anything new, because it was already present in Firefox modern versions in the old computer, but it's just somet...

Wow! Way to mess a real feed, bro... :shock:

I will abstain from using emojis for the near future, just let me know if they fix this.

Re: bbcode editor backported from CLI experimental site

IMHO, it would look better with a line break before all of the text-only buttons -- so you'd have all the regular buttons (up to the text size drop-down) in one line, and the text-only buttons on another... Plus, related buttons should be kept close to each other. My suggested ordering: {indent}{s}{...

Re: youtube-dl - multi-site media/video downloader

I agree, this totally sucks. Thank you, RIAA. For nothing! :angry:

BTW, there are plenty of alternative repos at sites like Gitlab and Bitbucket (just search, worth unknown)...

In my defense, let it be known that I created very few entries in the regular database as well -- I'm much more of a forum dweller.

Re: Command Prompt Ftp Client for Windows

Although ' CmdFtp.exe ' is fairly clean according to VirusTotal (1/71 -- but that one is Microsoft calling it a Trojan!), I would be very wary of using any FTP client (or any tool, in fact) that comes from a site that describes itself and it's upload policy as manifested below: Video Software Downlo...

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

I'm a believer. The small participation is not really statistically relevant as TPFC has always been a low membership, low engagement kind of community. My take is that if we don't throw away everything that has already been done -- just notice the huge amount of attention bandwidth it has consumed ...
