Re: Telegram - cross platform, secure chat

Whoa, comrade, I feel your pain, really do. But in this dark age of unbridled capitalism we have to make do with what is given to us, and you have to agree that a written statement in allegiance to users by a top man is better than what the competition provides -- i.e., nothing. I have been using Te...

Re: Telegram - cross platform, secure chat

Cause I believe this marks a whole different approach to social platforms in terms of accountability and transparency, I'm sharing the last message of Telegram's founder via his own channel. Last week at Telegram was intense -– we’ve been busy polishing the rough spots in our new iOS app (https://t....

Re: The APNG format

If the images above are not moving for you, your browser doesn't support APNG. * Firefox has supported APN...

Alas, the download provided is now a web-installer, couldn't find any EXE archives like before... EDIT: after some snooping around, I...

Re: Atlantis Word Processor [not portable]

I'm glad another fake portability claim got caught out. I have lost count of the times a dev's claimed portability doesn't measure up to bare essentials after testing, with users being blamed for the fail. 8)

Bitser (DotNET Archive Manager)

I haven't found Bitser around and it looks like a decent 7z based archive manager in active development, so it's time it got a post. DotNET requirement is v4 and, sadly, Bitser isn't natively portable -- there's only an installer executable for download and after iterating through ( Uni )extraction ...

Re: Stock.Div

Latest Stock.Div version is v4.7.3 (no changelog).

In trying to test Stock.Div, I became stuck because it doesn't support https://markets.businessinsider.com/ as data source. Is it expectable that it will be added?

Re: CLI hashing script

Improving on my own previous solution, here's a hybrid batch script that works in Windows 7 and doesn't require any external utility, only an existing Powershell v4 or newer -- apparently that ' get-filehash ' command doesn't work in previous versions. I was lead to this solution from the simple val...

Re: WuMgr (Update Manager for Windows)

Interesting. 8) I have been using Dism++ to solve (recurring) update problems in my Windows 7 SP1 x64 daily driver but, besides the Chinese opacity of some features and documentation, it doesn't look half as flexible and powerful as WuMgr is promising to be. I'll be keeping an eye on it for sure. In...
