    Another scanner. 5 bucks for an autofeed mini one at MS charity shop. The cool thing about this one is it can be autonomous by battery or USB power source or work simply tethered to a computer. The not cool thing is that it's not a direct scan, regardless of connection you have to scan to the SD card then put it into storage device mode and read off the card.

    It could be an entire new topic actually - with lots of bands in retrospect 20-30 years later my opinion of their best songs has changed. But I remember the era - when music in general was taking a bit of a nosedive for a while, there were the unconventional likes of Chilli Peppers, R.E.M. and FYC to save the day.

    Have to argue against that. IMO this one is, and also relevant to the thread subject:

    Project Binky

    This came out a few days ago and has just appeared in my suggested list. Shows some angles of the workshop that you don't usually see.

    Project Binky

    Rather than let it get lost in the 'What did you watch lately?' thread, this is deserving of it's own topic. Project Binky - ongoing project by Bad Obsession Motorsport to transfer the running gear from a Celica GT-Four into a classic Mini. Huge thanks to Outcast Aussie for bringing this series to our attention to begin with. Episode 13 is out now! And while you're at it, if you like cars, building cars, modding cars, whatever - just add their channel to your account: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHvBHWBzzB7NyU5tIiEZHBg I've got the latest ep downloading now in 720p to go with the remainder of the collection. At 20+ minutes apiece, definately worth playing on the big TV. To download YouTube videos can be a hit/miss affair at times. Currently my best solution is a Firefox extension called "Download YouTube Videos as MP4", it puts a download button on each video's page which gives drop down options to save in whatever resolutions are available. Another method is to visit a site that does the work for you, in my bookmarks are two which work sometimes but more often just don't: VideoGrabby: Youtube Downloader YouTube Downloader Today's plan for me - watch ep 12 to get back up to speed then watch the new one (I've watched the entire series twice already). Then come back later with comments. Also, the guys were at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. There's numerous videos around for each year's event, though I don't know if they get any mentions.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    On that note... Ken Warby's son is going to attempt to break his father's 40 year old water speed record set on Blowering Dam. http://warbymotorsport.com/ I saw Spirit of Australia in (slow) action on Lake Burley Griffin on show when I was a kid. He probably got it over 100 km/h which was a fraction of it's capability but still well impressive. Would be cool he does break the record. Sort of amazing it's lasted that long but as far as human/machine speed records go this would have to be the most dangerous by far. May as well add a video...

    Avoid the Win10 forced update by running an unlicenced Win7 copy. But really... there's like 9 months support left unless you want to actually pay for extended support which is being offered to volume licences at near extortionate rates (like the cost of a new licence PA). Win 10 agreed has some PITA features but it can be made somewhat livable. And 95% + of the time anyway you're in an apppication and the only sign of what OS is running is the "window dressing".

    Flying High to most of the rest of us... and IMO Naked Gun was a much better comedy. But a reunion well worth a look. "Hey Joey, you ever been in a Turkish prison?"

    I saw them a few weeks ago and baulked at the price. Then couldn't find them anywhere else and forgot where I'd initially seen them. But found them again - they're back! Twisties Zig-Zags. Bought a bag and paid nearly double what they used to cost. Hopefully they'll become more common and popular and they won't stop making them. And on a similar junk food note - almost daily buying a Pine-Lime Splice as an individual from whatever shop I happen to be near - then come home to a bulk buy pack in the freezer at night.

    Slightly related - similar consilidation in the tool industry. Sort of funny how Black and Decker, which has been a somewhat crap brand since the 80s, owns DeWalt which is regarded as a premium brand. Oops, maybe should say "Stanley Black & Decker" - but on that note I've been a big fan of Stanley stuff but it seems to have taken a bit of a dive lately.

    What a joke

    He's almost 60% the way through his presidency and the sky hasn't fallen in yet. No new wars. Their economy seems a bit better. And the way these whiny left-whingers carry on, it's as if the guy is their neighbour or bullying workmate or something. Fact of the matter is, he's not in their circle of friends or aquaintences and they'll probably never meet him. Yet they take it all so personally, and despite their pleas of being "educated" they base 90% of their judgement on their assessment of the guy's personality and demeanor. *FTR - I'm not a fan of the guy and never have been. But still find him somewhat more pallatable than Clinton or Sanders.

    What a joke

    Oh the poor deary... no doubt her pals down at the local dykes bar consoled her.
  15. WIthout having watched this one - the trick with JPG executables was to encode the "picture" such that a stack overflow occurs which inadvertantly leads to their code being run. A main preventitive of that is DEP which allows fencing off sections of memory to disallow programs wandering where they aren't supposed to.

    Project Binky

    Not bad - probably a project most would walk away from but they have the talent to make it look easy. "Skookum as frig" - some more YT cross-pollenation.

    What's on your mind?

    Fuck this 2-step verification bollocks. All I'm wanting to do is download a program from the MS store that's to update a Samsung computer. The verification code gets sent by email and takes 2-3 minutes to arrive if you're lucky. So I change to mobile phone, and they say it'll take a month to update. Morons, morons, morons. And cheapskates at Samsung for not just having the drivers and such on their website like almost everyone else.

    Video on fileless malware (Semi Fileless)

    I dealt with one of these FORFILES in a registry RUN entry the other day. It was attempting to run a bunch of stuff thru SYSTEM32 but luckily had admin rights failure. There was a seemingly random text in the reg entry following the command and initial parameters, it must be some sort of compression of the following parms. Though it seemed to not do anything the System Properties panel stopped working, would just vanish after 2 seconds. But after I REMed out the command the properties panel was fixed.

    So much for optimistic bill predictions. Electricity bill arrived and not the smaller one I'd hoped for. But whether it was a meter read or trend prediction I don't know.

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    I thought that everyone onboard died on that airshow one I mentioned. Yeah - Christine, good Stephen King cheesy book made into cheesy movie. Funny about movies that have horror/car chases/psycho characters like that. They often get a paltry rating but are a good watch and have some repeat value.

    What's on your mind?

    My last one was annoyingly high, and it looks like the low comparitive prices we've had here a while are almost over. But at least now it's the time of year where climate control is barely needed so the next bill will probably be a good bit smaller. Feeling tempted to build some sort of cheap low-wattage torrent-box and just sleep this computer when I'm not around.

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Not a bad movie - somewhat similar to Duel (which was Spielberg's debut feature length film and shot in only 13 days) The dodgy software correction thing... from memory an A320 crashed at a Euro airshow because the computer thought that a high AoA stunt at low altitude was going to stall the aircraft and the "fix" was to auto nose-down to gain airspeed.

    Project Binky

    I don't think it'd bother them. Already done multiple times thanks to mockups and revisions needed to fit stuff. The feat of fitting everything into the amount of space and still being able to drive and carry passengers is impressive enough in itself, maybe even moreso than the performance and handling you might expect of something that'll probably end up 200-300 kgs lighter than a Celica GT.
