Re: http[colon]//boonwirsdownjohn[dot]ga is a copy of TPFC: WTF?

My AV blocks the site because it has been reported as a malware site.

So, my guess would be that they're distributing malware, and copying us is a way to get traffic to the site.

Re: Best internal team chat messenger

I'm using slack for communicating with company members paid version is good buy if you can't bear cost of paid version then free version of slack is also available. My employer uses Slack as well. It's not that good in my experience: in particular, it's not portable, and it's heavy and uses a ton o...

Re: FreeVimager - license

Since version 9.0.5 FreeVimager is definitely not freeware but I cannot decipher its license: This program is Donationware, it is requested to donate $10 USD per installation to cover the costs of software development. Donationware means that you're allowed to use the program without donating, you'...

Re: Key InFormer

With this tool, I found out that, my laptop "Right Alt" button, actually sends "LControl down + RAlt down + LControl up + RAlt up", really, I really don't know why it sends the "LControl" keystroke, but, after knowing that, it really allowed me to avoid a lot of problems, for example, remapping key...

Re: AV1 video codec

Hopefully this will be THE standard by 2020. AV1 has good chances to make it there. It's royalty-free, and performs better (i.e. can achieve either better compression ratio or quality) than anything else. It would be stupid for companies and individuals not to utilize AV1.* * (except for MPEG-LA me...

Re: CCleaner Portable

Piriform has now written a comprehensive list of the data CCleaner sends by default. It still looks a little excessive to me (the data includes button clicks in CCleaner, the installed AV, whether or not you have Chrome installed, and if CCleaner crashes, the full list of programs that were running ...

I usually lose the rest when explaining how to update UniExtract so they can extract the setup files
Simply recommend Universal Extractor 2 instead, it's already up to date.

Re: In final blow to 'legacy' Firefox Mozilla will be deleting XUL addons from catalog in the coming months

Mozilla notes they're strained resource-wise with maintaining a legacy XUL catalog, though given their claimed motivation that none of the latest versions of Firefox support XUL (ignoring Firefox forks like Palemoon, etc which still use them) surely in that case fewer users would be downloading the...

Re: Comments suggestion

I think we need to nail down on how to present _both_ pinned comments and 10 most recent comments, both of which must be presented before the hidden comments. Maybe we can have this: == Top 5 voted comments == == Most recent 10 comments == == Click to show all comments (most recent first) == Any ot...

Re: Opera (Presto) - browser listing suggestion

I'm opposed. Meltdown and Spectre got attention primarily because 1) as hardware flaws, fully fixing them requires new CPUs, and 2) because they affect such a broad range of software. Other than that, they aren't very severe vulnerabilities: just information leaks. I can appreciate that the Presto ...
