  1. Past hour
  2. Yes of course, but it's for our good, it's against terrorists and other bad guys. I'm defending for the fun only. I don't care about proxies, have no need, but lack of this possibility here in RoyTam1's browsers troubles me somewhere... This is for me the technical problem to solve, maybe I made a bad choice in about:config and repeated it in all browsers. That is why I ask for help (to solve this problem) from other members in this famous community....
  3. Today
  4. All videos play on your website - with JavaScript whitelisted (permitted) and in uMatrix permitted (green): all cnn.com and cnn.io, and pmd.cdn.turner.com. Twitter videos play here, but badly (very poor quality, in other browsers too). To play twitter videos, in uMatrix permitted all twitter.com and twimg.com, but I've these forbidden (=in red) in my uMatrix v1.0.0: analytics.twitter.com, syndication.twitter.com, cookie and other under twitter.com, image under abs.twimg.com. What do you think about?
  5. oops, a slash is missing in packing script. reuploaded.
  6. After more than one month without updating Serpent 52, I decided it was time to do so... and, after installing the latest binaries (basilisk52-g4.4.win32-git-20191207-2529b2ede-xpmod) I found out CNN.com's videos weren't playing anymore. Then I went to the previous version and so on, until I got to basilisk52-g4.4.win32-git-20191116-3492ad652-xpmod, which works as expected. I'm astonished: hasn't anyone reported any issues till now? I'm reporting an issue which prevents both videos at cnn.com (try: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/12/07/asia/beijing-pets-cat-dogs-intl-hnk/index.html) as well as most videos on twitter, and I found it out less than one hour ago!
  7. @Dylan Cruz The Outlook crypt32 error happens when it thinks it's running on anything else but XP. And the encryption issue seems to do with user privileges, which are handled differently in XP. That is the same issue that is preventing us from installing Office 2010 and VMware Workstation 10! The other way around would be to replace even more win2k native/BWC DLLs and run the risk of even greater breakage. I don't have that amount of time until I can get a few other commitments out of the way, which should take me a week. Because that does sound kinda fun!
  8. @win32 OK, so it was too good to be true, perhaps, and sure enough, I've uncovered a few bugs that have got me stumped again: It seems we only focused on half the puzzle. *Decryption* in Office is working. However, I'm unable to *edit* any encrypted files. When I try editing/saving a Word doc that is encrypted, it whines that it can't save because maybe the disk is full or write protected. This is even when saving to the desktop! In Excel, I get a different error: cannot access the file C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.MSO\3736C000. Makes no sense to me what temp. Internet files have to do with this. How do I know it's encrypted files only? So far, I've had no issues working with files that aren't encrypted. So it seems we're closer than before, but encrypted files are basically read-only at this point, for reasons that don't make sense at all.
  9. there are other junk sites like this one that claim XP compatibility, you only know if its XP capable once you donwload the software
  10. This appears to be an empty archive (32 bytes long).
  11. ... Unfortunately, this link currently only downloads a file sized a mere 32 bytes...
  12. @win32Bad news... things were working fine... now all of a sudden, I get the dread "CRYPT32 incompatible error" again... I haven't changed anything! It started with TCP/IP errors, nothing was connected, and when I logged into a new account, that's what I got. Somewhere along the way, things broke... I think time took it's toll, and maybe Windows internally did something weird as it was doing its usual Windows stuff. Does your Outlook still work? What if you try to add a second account? If I restore back to right when I did the restore, it works. But who knows where it went wrong. Somewhere, Outlook went willy nilly off the rails again. Once I restored, I could connect a Gmail and a Yandex account. I've spent some time working in Outlook 2007 now and changing settings. Not yet to the actual sending/receiving part yet. Conversation view, like in 2003, is pretty much broken/nonexistent, as that didn't come until 2010. Just out of curiosity, how hard would it to be to install Outlook 2010 *standalone* on W2K? I'm perfectly happy with the rest of the Office programs, and 2007 is a bit better than 2003, for sure, but I'd be interested to see if that would work/is even possible. Especially since XP supports both, so I'm not sure why KernelEx supports 2007 but not 2010. Also, in Outlook 2007, does the Calibri font work for you? Mine looks more like 2003 than the 2010 interface in terms of font. This was on XP, so it looks all nice: Whereas on Windows 2000, Outlook 2007 just looks so much more ancient. Is this possibly because W2K doesn't have the "round font edges" setting? **EDIT:** Fixed - go to Effects and click "Smooth edges of screen fonts". Everything looks *much* nicer now! Edit 3 hours later: I've been using Outlook 2007 quite a bit now and it's been mostly working so far. Several crashes, but not enough that it's unusable. It's not really any less stable than Outlook 2010 on Windows XP, and that was an officially supported configuration by Microsoft, so I'd say the outcome has been quite good so far.
  13. Well, when you put it THAT way... Point taken about ENDLOCAL. The matched quote routine was written to deal with other various variables, and was just reused for this application since it was handy, but your routine is MUCH more efficient when dealing specifically with paths. The errors aren't MY errors, but because of the data dealt with or user input. But like I said at the beginning, I'm sometimes guilty of the belt + suspenders approach to coding. Cheers and Regards
  14. Yesterday
  15. (Click Here) Dutch Boy and the Dike (story) Perhaps you have not enough fingers for Privacy Dike Plugging? Actually, no idea much here on 'IP Privacy' issues. Maybe a PAY ($$$) VPN Service would work for you? (Click Here) Project ECHELON Besides, they know about you anyway!
  16. @Dylan Cruz That happens to me too. Probably because it expects a different XP-style UI rendering routine, but can't confirm.
  17. OK, found it and install, looks like it worked! I didn't realize the roots update files were continually being released. I applied the roots update from 2017 and that allowed my Chromium 54 to work with HTTPS once I rebooted. I didn't need to reboot for Outlook to stop warning me, though. Interesting. Complete guide should now be fully up to date: https://w2k.phreaknet.org/guide/ I don't think anything has been left out. Just out of curiosity, when you go to Tools -> Account Settings, what do you see? I don't see my mail account listed there. I haven't, this whole time we've been testing. I thought it was something weird, but I think it's more like the Office activation think where I had to replaced riched20 dll for that to work right. You can see that something is highlighted, but there's no text. If you click Change, then the email account settings come up. Not a big issue, since there's no need to access this on a day to day basis, but I can imagine it might be confusing once I put 10 accounts in here and they all show up as invisible!
  18. @Dylan Cruz Click "Manual Update" on the left sidebar, then several English search fields will come up.
  19. Uh, what do I click, exactly? It's all in Japanese. Usually, there's a translate option, but not this time, and there's no English really.
  20. Yes thanks for your detailled response, TechnoRelic! foxyproxy in BNAV ... so why, on BNAV, IP check websites show my true IP, please? WHOER extended: https://whoer.net/#extended JonDonym: http://ip-check.info/?lang=en Aaron Horler: https://aaronhorler.com/ ... and Roytam1: https://o.rths.ml/test/ip.php Have you an proxy/vpn extension working on other RoyTam1's browsers, please? If not, test "legacy" Zenmate extension et get your impressions here, please... Link to download Zenmate: https://web.archive.org/web/20191029181657/https://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/541038/index.html ... or download "legacy" Browsec, if you wish: https://web.archive.org/web/20191029180612/https://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/603434/index.html Thank you!
  21. @Dylan Cruz Install the latest root certificate update (July 2019) from blackwingcat's Windows Legacy Update (http://www.w2k.flxsrv.org/wlu/wluen.htm) I did find consistency to the crashes; they happen when attempting to open an unread email for me. I marked them all as read and the crashes stopped.
  22. A bit late, but you can obtain the XP/Vista version here: https://getonline.aol.com//xp-vista It's now version
  23. Did all this, when I test my settings, I get the The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that cannot be verified... A certificate chain processed correctly, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider. Do you want to continue using this server? I click Yes twice and the tests pass. Next->Finish. And then my mailbox loads!!!! Yes, it works!!! I'll have to test more of Outlook's nuances, but I will update the guide. I guess we can have our cake and eat it, too! Thanks again @win32 - really looking forward to using W2K as my primary OS now. UPDATE: In the time it took me to write this response, I went back to Outlook and it had crashed. Ah, I supposed that's to be expected, though. I do get the certificate error every time I open Outlook 2007. A very similar error happened every time I opened Outlook 2003 on vanilla W2K, but that happened twice for every single account. This happens only once, though I only have one account connected at this time. Any way to permanently disable the warning? If not, it's not the end of the world - as long as it doesn't do it once per account/server. UPDATE 2: I relaunched Outlook and tried to open an email, and then it crashed again. But I did it again and it didn't crash, so I guess it's not consistent.
  24. Wow, I'm an id***. I looked in Program Files\Office12, not Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12...
  25. @Dylan Cruz Same. But it is a very important file as far as Office is concerned. Have you tried Search?
  26. Yeah, no MSO.DLL for me. There are some DLLs and ACLs that start with MSO but not just MSO.DLL There is an MSO.ACL in the 1033 folder. Which Office do you have? I have Enterprise 2007.
  27. @Dylan Cruz Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/OFFICE12.
