Need more robust platform with workflow and somewhat advanced tracking capabilities. [more inside]
No matter how fancy the password checking scheme is, or how many encryption steps it involves, isn't there usually a single "if" statement somewhere? If so, other security vulnerabilities could allow that to be overwritten pretty simply, to skip the check. How could code be written more securely? [more inside]
I'm looking for an alternative to Pinterest that will allow me to save photos in albums/groupings, but will display them by default as full-size or at least page-width. Something like The Big Picture (but hopefully with even bigger pictures) where I can just scroll through a long list of photos. I don't need any of Pinterest's social or suggestion features and my "page" can be either private or public, but needs to be accessible on multiple computers. [more inside]
I'm seeking recommendations for a hardware interface that'll make it easy to play guitar through headphones (and maybe also an amp) using my smartphone (a Galaxy S9+) to provide effects, amp simulation, etc. [more inside]
Looking to block someones email address in Gmail. [more inside]
Need some help getting five regular expression search-and-replaces working within a Unix bash shell script. [more inside]
I've recently started online dating. The last time I did this was in 2003. The interconnectedness of the various social medias plus embedded location tracking has it feeling DRAMATICALLY different from a privacy and safety standpoint than it did my first time around, and I've already unintentionally exposed myself in a couple ways that have left me feeling a little freaked out. What should I be doing/thinking about to keep myself safe and/or not share certain details about myself before I'm ready? What am I not thinking about or may not be aware of? [more inside]
I've gotten six calls from some random telemarketer company in the last hour and a half -- they identify themselves as a different company each time, calling for someone else, using randomized numbers. This has been going on for the past 4-5 days. Sometimes there are 20 calls in a day. [more inside]
I am looking for a program (not web-based) that will let me upload a .csv with different SKUs and expected quantities. Then I want to be able to scan barcodes and have the match tracked against the uploaded data. After the scan, I want to see a list of everything not scanned, including if I am missing 1 of 5 expected items. I don't know what to start searching for. Or if this is something I can do with Excel, I'd like to know how to do that, too.
So as you know, I've been playing the Shark Game. I recently got "lots" of everything, which is at least a nonillion (10^30). I decided that since I can view the specific amounts in the log, my new goal would be to get a googol of everything (10^100). I left it running with an auto-clicker overnight that would triple my total resources every few seconds. Now the log lists some of my resources as "infinity". However, I can't seem to use those resources to buy anything. [more inside]
Put my Desktop on an access point and now Remote Desktop Connection fails. Halp? [more inside]
So, I know many of the details on this. I know it took down mspaintadventures.com, Newgrounds, and MegaUpload. I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that Tumblr and LiveJournal crashed too, but I'm not sure of that. What I'd like to know, is exactly what was the fallout from "The Flash that Broke the Internet"? [more inside]
What is a good, affordable (or downright cheap) tablet that I can use to do occasional public sales on using Square? I have an iPad, which runs perfectly for this, and is great for heavy use, but looking for a cheaper alternative to supplement for just a handful of events. Must have a headphone jack for the scanner/swiper, a camera for occasional barcode scanning, and of course be able to use Square. I see super cheap tablets for $50, but am afraid those may be unreliable.
Is it possible to block someone via text ONLY- and not calls? I have an android. [more inside]
What is the best (easiest to use, most private, reliable) free web mail today? I would like to open an email account for throwaway purposes, such as newsletter sign-ups and so on. I do not like the fact that Gmail asks for my phone number. Thank you!
The YouTube algorithm is horrible. My (gentle) teen once watched a video about an animal rescue and now they're constantly getting recommendations for videos of animals trapped/dying/in pain (before usually being rescued) Is there a trusted browser extension (or other method) where a parent can improve the YT experience for kids? [more inside]
Hi, Mefi. :) THis is a bit of a long-shot, but I'm wondering if you've got any insights. I'm looking for Java programmers. [more inside]
I have a chrome book, and just went to buy my first app (I’ve only downloaded free apps up til now) and I have a $1000 balance in my Google Play account. Why the hell? Where the hell?
WANTED: Very thin, portable approx. 24” HDMI computer monitor with flat-folding stand for travel. [more inside]
The last time I edited video was about 10 years ago, I used my iMac and Final Cut Express. Now, I find the landscape has altered beyond recognition! I'm trying to edit the output of two Canon XA10s which I think is in AVCHD format. I believe the camera has sort of split the output into audio and video, but I'm not 100% on that. It just seemed that way when I tried to import it. [more inside]
