Some GitHub downloads were blocked for safe browsing More about Printer Friendly

Posted on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 @ 07:15:21 CEST in Discussion Topics

Bleeping Computer reports that executable files (.exe, .msi, etc.) were showing safe browsing errors in Google Chrome and Firefox for around 8 hours yesterday (25 January, 2017).

Although this only affected a small number of users, it would be pretty significant for the commercial and open source projects hosted there who use executable downloads.

Neither the Bleeping Computer article nor the GitHub blog explains what happened or how it was fixed. Since this had to be caused by something GitHub changed (and subsequently fixed) without requiring changes to the browser, explaining what happened would be helpful not only to impacted projects to assess how they handle downloads and their GitHub accounts in the future, but also others who might avoid similar issues. It would also help those considering hosting projects on GitHub decide how to proceed.

What do you think?  Comment here.

Chatroulette offers random webcam titillation More about Printer Friendly

I know this isn't the usual content for this site but I found it, well, interesting. Would this be classified as a "social" site? Feel free to discuss it in the forums if interested.

On Chatroulette, a new and controversial Web site, every click lands you in a face-to-face video conversation with a random stranger.

The setup is simple: Activate your webcam and click "play." Then, as people from all over the world pop up one at a time in a box on your screen, you decide whether or not to chat with them. If you don't like the looks of things, click "next" and the site shuffles you to someone new.

The people you meet could be friendly. During a recent CNN test of the site, a man from France popped up on the screen wearing a jester's hat and telling jokes in French. Two men dressed as skeletons were having a dance party to techno music and flashing lights. A slouched-over man in Tunisia said he was tired because he'd been on the site for four hours.

Nuke Community? More about Printer Friendly

Why support a PHP Nuke community when there is no site where a designer can go to voice a grievance. I am a Nuker and have been for quite a while. I just happen to like Raven Nuke 7.6 and my site runs that version.

I am also a theme designer, in my spare time. My themes are being displayed in an inappropriate manner without my permission at a site I have heard all to much about. http://www.all-themes.com

I read somewhere that one designer had his site banned for asking the owner of www.all-themes.com to remove his work.

I did the same and was banned too. And my e-mails go unanswered. Why then go to the trouble of even attempting to create a community when the members do not support each other and allow sites such as www.all-themes.com to continue to thrive and grow while using the hard work of other people to profit.

Thank you for your time.

As always, thank you for your continued support of the community, this site here, and for Montego Scripts,


Life Without Windows More about Printer Friendly

Having been approximately 4 months now, I must say am absolutely pleased with Linux (Mandriva Linux 2006). As mentioned in a previous entry. I really just had gotten fed up with Microsoft products and Windows specifically.

Also this whole 'legitimized' business model of spy ware/ad ware. It has in my opinion, become a de facto conspiracy between major software publishers, computer manufacturers, first tier marketers and technical support regimes. I see the ads on local cable network for computer repair (or should I say, install Spybot, Ad-Aware and run scans), I wonder if these guys get it? Or do they and are merely taking advantage of an opportunity?
