  1. "The writing area shows up in blue" grey. I turned filters on & off in AdBlockPlus 2.3.2 (extension addable to FF28.0), but couldn't replicate the exact problem you are seeing in the full editor box (reached via More Post Options webpage button). I would suggest the cause is some filter in that, or a similar extension - so trying to narrow down the offending item is just a slog of on/offs to be tried, in likely programs (does Norton filter things nowadays?). If using AdBlockPlus, besides the URL filters in effect (sometimes confusing if you have a combination of various URL filter exceptions also active), don't forget there is also a 'section heading' in the Filter Preferences called 'Filter Subscriptions', which may have additional filters from a subscription service (ticked) activated by default (although I think it is unlikely any subscription service filter would be the culprit). As to the 'double listings' you described, that's just what you see when those avatar icons are filtered - some filter affecting 'gravatar com', I'd say.
  2. benners said; "The Flag was changed to the dword value of 43 but shortly after was updated to 71." Perhaps better expressed as 'the Flag was changed to the DWORD value of 0x00000043 (67) , but shortly after was updated to DWORD value 0x00000047 (71) '.
  3. JorgeA, perhaps try posting in Verizon forums if that's possible, (as mentioned in post #174), for Verizon to whitelist msfn's IP address, , as SORBS still has that IP address blacklisted (http://www.sorbs.net/lookup.shtml), and suggest to Verizon forum moderators that if Verizon uses the SORBS email blocklist, that Verizon should STOP using SORBS as one of the input sources for Verizons' email spam blocklist.
  4. All Aok then - I should note that the 'Change Theme' text and link doesn't always appear for everyone - for instance, I can't recall when I have ever had it appear on msfn webpages that the msfn server has served to me, until I carried out some of the actions in my last post, when thereafter it magically started appearing. ============= "...but haven't noticed the "Change Theme" button before." Mmm, do you think it would be better worded as ' Mobile/Full View ' ? ============= The mobile view was surprizing, in that it was somewhat difficult to easily navigate in the members control panel (and subheadings therein), due to the absence of hard links on the mobile view webpages. It could be figured out with a little perserverance - but I fear some members may become exasperated too quickly ( xper may need to look at remedying this...if say, they couldn't get into their notification preferences easily.)
  5. 5eraph (post #187) asks; How do you change to mobile view? "Change theme" is missing from the bottom left of the forum pages. jumper theorizes; So mobile view is automatic, based on user agent? Could be any one, or a combination of: Possibly whether the MSFN server has a record of whether a user has ever viewed the forum using a 'User Agent' that requires mobile view (?), possibly whether the software (located on the server) recognizes a particular 'User Agent' as one that requires the user be given the choice to view in mobile mode ("Change Theme") or should automatically be served in mobile mode (?), possibly whether the user has an msfn cookie on their internet device that tells the server to serve a page that includes the option on that page to view in mobile mode ("Change Theme")(?), possibly whether the user has their ad-blocking/or hosts file set to block http://ajax.googleapis.com (?), possibly other things... Now to specifics. @5eraph, try deleting any cookie that you may have previously got from msfn (e.g. in Firefox 28, Tools-Options-Privacy-Remove individual Cookies). THEN go to msfn OR Refresh the msfn page you are viewing, and see if "Change Theme" has appeared in the bottom left of the page. If it is seen, and if nothing happens when you click on it (except the page merely appears to jump up to the top of the page) then try ensuring that nothing is blocking access to URL; http://ajax.googleapis.com (such as ad-blocking software/plug-ins or hosts file) then Refresh the msfn page you are viewing. If "Change Theme" is still not seen, then try closing all msfn pages, then delete any msfn cookies, then go to this URL; http://www.botsvsbrowsers.com/SimulateUserAgent.asp and input a User Agent of, oh, say; Mozilla/5.0 (Windows Phone 8.1; ARM; Trident/7.0; Touch; rv:11.0; IEMobile/11.0; NOKIA; Lumia 520) like Gecko Request Type: GET Width 480 Height 800 URL; http://www.msfn.org/board/ Click 'Send Request' and fill in the required characters in the seen verification box, then click "Submit Query". After the msfn page appears in the box, sign-in as per normal, then see if "Change Theme" has appeared at the bottom of that page. Click it, then click "IP.Board Mobile", and before you leave the msfn pages, click "Full Version" at the page bottom. Now whenever you visit msfn, you should (hopefully always) see the choice of "Change Theme" on an msfn page. @tomasz86 try the above - but be aware, if you can't actually see the bottom of your visited webpages (per your screenshot in post #188), well, this seems to be a known fault with Windows Phone 8 on Nokia Lumia... at present; http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dd13ba7f-2120-4e84-be3b-479622548021/nokia-lumia-screen-height-problem-with-html5js-app?forum=wpdevelop
  6. In post #28, Drugwash states he has noticed: Edit: just seen setupx.dll being called in a lot of infs through rundll.exe in the form: StubPath = "rundll.exe %11%\setupx.dll, InstallHinfSection [...]" Reference; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/164787 "Rundll command line The command line for Rundll is as follows: RUNDLL.EXE <dllname>,<entrypoint> <optional arguments> An example is as follows: RUNDLL.EXE SETUPX.DLL,InstallHinfSection 132 C:\WINDOWS\INF\SHELL.INF There are 3 issues to consider carefully"......"3. In the above command line,"..."there cannot be any white spaces in between the <dllname>, the comma, and the <entrypoint> function."
  7. @JorgeA Just in regard to the embedded ad links (ads links that are associated with keywords {which appear with 'double underlining'} in forum pages). One explanation for this is that your ad-blocking software is set to deactivate upon webpages that have a partial URL pattern e.g. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php... etc. (that is, forum webpages used for making a 'Reply' or 'Edit' or 'Preview' post) but is activated on partial URL patterns of e.g. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/... etc. (so the ad-blocking software reactivates when viewing forum posts). I myself have my ad-blocking software set to deactivate (upon those forum webpages used) when making a 'Reply' or 'Edit', simply because the ad-blocking software prevents the full editor appearing (yes!, I could remedy this, but I have never bothered to chase down what/which filter I have set in the ad-blocking software that kills the full editor). Cheers
  8. JorgeA (Although this topic; http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171672-im-no-longer-receiving-notifications-for-anything/ suggests that the notification problem has recently been resolved, if you find that it is still not working...) after you have got a reply back from that Verizon internet form that jaclaz mentioned, then perhaps try posting in the Verizon forum, like seen here; http://forums.verizon.com/t5/Verizon-net-Email/571-Server-IP-is-blocked-HELP/td-p/638369 to try and get Verizon to whitelist the MSFN notification email adress you see in copies of previous notifications you have received i.e. the address that begins nobody@ ...etc., and the MSFN IP address; . ======== @Xper www.MSFN.ORG and/or its IP address appear to have a current blacklisting, according to; http://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=blacklist%3a74.86.39.114&run=toolpage# The SORBS listing is probably the most likely culprit. SORBS has apparently kept an active listing for the IP address of . http://www.sorbs.net/lookup.shtml The SORBS listing shows this information; "Summary information for Note: Times shown are for the latest entry only! Found 2 network entries and 0 host/domain entries. Problem Entries, (listings will cause email problems.)(CURRENT LISTING - ACTIVE) 10 "Spam" entries [18:56:12 23 Sep 2013 GMT+00]. - 10 entries [18:56:12 23 Sep 2013 GMT+00].

(Some further minor information has been PM'd to Xper.)
  9. Aahh, common fellas, play nice - LET US HAVE eXSBass as moderator of, oh, say either the "What are you Listening to?" or "Funny Farm" topics (upon his donation of US$500 to MSFN, that is!) ( 5eraph said; "One might ask why you'd want the responsibility and question your motives." MMmmm, on second thoughts, maybe you're right... I always wondered when and under what guise kidd0 would return and make his Ultimate Bid for Power..... )
  10. "1. its not YOUR private property, as you only pay for RENT of grave place" Ummm.. Vini... If you rent a property and someone comes onto that property and steals goods (be it yours, or your Kins or your friends or even your dogs...)... is that theft? Of course it is. If someone comes to a grave plot and steals something, is that theft? Of course it is. I'm guessing you haven't had much to do with the court system in your country, much less Canada's. Lucky you.
  11. (Following on from the above post) I can provide the following information from an3k; (COMING SOON=) (open the registry editor and do a search for) "msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove,5" and you'll get the complete cmd.
  12. Source code for MS DOS 1.1, 2.0 and Word 1.1a has been made publically available. VIDE http://www.computerhistory.org/_static/atchm/microsoft-ms-dos-early-source-code/
  13. Looks like a member has moved their website from the URL in their post - and the domain providing company has subsequently assigned that URL to a Russian Real Estate agency. Rather than leaving the URL there and wasting members time, perhaps delete the URL from the post, or the topic from the Board (unless you're planning on renting a Moscow dacha? Nyet?)
  14. I'll address only your first paragraph, as you didn't explicitly rule out using software TClock or TclockEx, which I haven't used. (Perhaps consider this the fallback option if no useful replies for your paragraph two and three.) You may need to also associate a calendar app with the click execute on it. http://www.littletechiethings.com/2009/05/tclock-light-windows-7-style-clock-for.html http://www.sevenforums.com/customization/17516-change-windows-clock-s-font-size-3.html http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/145963-How-to-change-Desktop-clock-font/page2
  15. Regarding Post #342, integrated graphic " geforce 6150 nforce 430 ", from http://pciids.sourceforge.net/v2.2/pci.ids , 03D0 C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] (or check yourself, in Win98 using pci.zip ; http://devel.no-ip.org/mirrors/members.datafast.net.au/dft0802/downloads.htm ) Post back to let us know how you go, with the drivers in Win98.
  16. submix8c said; "Those are XP logs"... Err, those logs can be generated during a Windows 2000 install/upgrade. (Please take in the relevant parts of this webpage...) Ref; http://www.microsoft.com/mspress/books/WW/sampchap/2538a.aspx ""WINNT32" is SPECIFICALLY a Windows XP Upgrade"... No, Ref; http://winsupersite.com/article/windows-2000/command-line-parameters-for-winntexe-and-winnt32exe-a-windows-2000-technology-showcase-127946 "HOW ...did you get those "LOG" files from a Win98->WinME upgrade? THEY WOULD NOT EXIST!" (Quite true, so is it possible JRO may have actually placed Windows 2000 or XP [in some form] onto his USB flash stick?) Shouldn't he try a DIR and a VER and so on to see what is there on the Hard drive and what he can access from his C ommand Prompt? Regarding the 'Diskette' boot setting in that BIOS - that notebook apparently at that setting usually boots off a 'floppy drv connected via the PC Card port'. Here are helpful refs for that notebook; hxxp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hK0d7tsFJng http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=PCGZ505RX&LOC=3#/howtoTab Here are all the (info about) connections he possibly could ever have; on main unit left side; 1 x DC in 19.5V DC 1 x Proprietary Docking Port/Replicator connector 1 x iLink S200 IEEE 1394 (FireWire) - 4 pin FireWire, non-powered 1 x microphone Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm, 1 x Headphones - Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm 1 x type II PC Card slot, (CardBus support) 1 x Sony Memory Stick slot, 4MB to 32MB? on main unit right side; 1x USB - standard Type A, (disables when replicator unit connected?) 1x USB - Mini (A? or B?) ? ? ? 1 x Network -Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - (Proprietary connector to RJ-45) 1 x Infrared - IrDA 115 kbps to 4 Mbps 1 x Internal Modem V90 56Kflex- Phone line - RJ-11 on main unit under keyboard; 1 x PC66/100 SDRAM Memory slot (Fixed 64MB + 1 x insertable = 128MB to 192Mb?) on Replicator unit; 1 x iLink S200 connector (not concurrently usable when main unit iLink populated?) 1 x Parallel - IEEE 1284 (EPP/ECP) - 25 pin D-Sub (DB-25), 1 x Serial - RS-232 - 9 pin D-Sub (DB-9), 1 x Display / video - VGA Output - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15), 1 x USB - 4 pin USB standard Type A
  17. Tripredacus said; " While CKE has completed their fix and released the new version, Invision doesn't seem to have updated to it. " Yes, that is unclear - that webpage you referenced contained a further link; http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/395212-any-plans-to-make-editor-in-ipbiard-34-series-ie11-compatible/?p=244135 that could have clarified this - but that link is not accessible to the general public or IPS members (such as yourself) - only to +client account holders such as Xper or Tarun... Whatever the fix(es) are that Invision have suggested to allow full workability with IE11, there is hope that they apply to an IP.Board ver 3.4.6 - look at this Boards posts (page 2 and 3); http://www.bookclubforum.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/12372-problems-with-internet-explorer/page-2 (Incidently, I believe MSFN is currently using CK Editor ver 3.6.6 .)
  18. @jumper @ dencorso Which problem are you referring to, the OP's original post, or aviv00's avatar, (or something else?), as these different problems have different causes and effects.

  20. Both their Admin and their Tech (identical) email addresses @stardock.com (as shown on neowin.net WHOIS prior to its revocation) failed the check because their email server replied to the check with "Quota exceeded (mailbox for user is full)" Entirely possible - that particular email address belongs to a busy guy (who continues to use that particular email address for the WHOIS details on a number of other Domains). For the rest of us, (and especially anyone whose email address is listed on a WHOIS), its worth mentioning that a 'full mailbox' reply may be caused by failing to empty the Trash and/or Spam folders (email account plan may include these when calculating the account 'email quota'). Also, if you have an email account plan that bundles 'other services', those other services may count towards and/or affect your 'email quota'. Here's an example; https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6558
  21. Tripredacus said; "There is no red x in Mozilla browsers." There certainly isn't, not surprizing as I said "I.E. deals with it more gracefully, by simply displaying a red 'x' where his avatar ought to be." (For myself, the I.E. tested with was I.E. 8.0.6001.18702 .) Tripredacus said; ..."but aviv00 (among others) has always shown up looking strange. Although, it could be caused by my particular security setup,"... Well, no: - I'd suggest aviv00's avatar displays as it does due to the reason I put forward - the Board software can't find it. The link I gave appears to be in the correct format the Board uses - so the data (GIF) is no longer retrievable.. ( ...mmm, I should allow we could theorize other possible causes - the Board requires that avatars are to be a maximum of 100x100 pixels, 100Kb, non-animated, etc., maybe certain of those requirements have changed over the years[?] so an avatar which previously met past requirements conceivably now doesn't meet current ones[?] and the Board software refuses to serve the data[?] .) You appear to keep a record of past MSFN webpages saved in a complete format, all pics, css, etc. . Are these merely 'fault' webpages, or do you have access to an offline older copy of the database? (This seems possible, I recall Xper posted an offhand remark several years ago about the size of the database [i can't remember the exact size, but it was around the 600-700MB range], so perhaps recent size could fit on a DVD?) - I will understand if you prefer not to reply to this particular question...
  22. I'm aware of the seldom seen condition you are referring to, (I believe only encountered with certain ~2007 and earlier Board members) - the sections normally displaying Country, OS and Member Title info simply do not exist for certain members (apparently these sections did not exist or existed in a different format or were never previously populated since earlier IPB versions, and later version updates have not created or populated these sections [with the default entries] for certain earlier members). An example is member $ Dolla-Bill $ http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/50552-giving-up-props-to-yal/#entry351659 I don't recall any instance of any member not having an avatar section - I believe the Board software always tries to display something in every members avatar section. (I've encountered a few other instances where the display of a members avatar is, er, faulty.) Regarding aviv00's avatar, I should have instead described his avatar as 'lost'. The underlaying link for his avatar appears to be; hxxp://www.msfn.org/board/uploads/profile/photo-133794.gif which returns a 404: Not Found . Presumably, whatever he uploaded into the database in the past has since gone to 'Digital Heaven'. He is obviously not fussed about it, although you are right that it causes a 'strange' display on the (e,g, Forums) webpage - (I.E. deals with it more gracefully, by simply displaying a red 'x' where his avatar ought to be). Cheers
  23. OK, I think I've got a handle on this now... (After looking at how Gravatars work; hxxp://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/images/ ) . Board (in this case IPB, possibly with add-ons) software causes a hash to be done of a piece of user unique information (probably the email address), sends this info to Gravatar server, who reply with a URL for the gravatar avatar pic to be served from if the hash matches one held in their database, - if the hash doesn't match then the (Gravatar?) server redirects so the request is served from a default URL, and the Board server sends HTML to your browser with URL's as seen, similar to this; hxxp://www.gravatar.com/avatar/82cc8a5a115a4ffe285b3efd030ccaf9?s=100&d=hxxp%3A%2F%2Fwww.msfn.org%2Fboard%2Fpublic%2Fstyle_images%2Fshift%2Fprofile%2Fdefault_large.png The above default location is more easily read as; hxxp://www.msfn.org/board/public/style_images/shift/profile/default_large.png a 1.93 KB (1,972 bytes) size, 150px × 150px PNG . (When seen on the 'Forums' main page, the default PNG pic is resized to a smaller seen pic.) Incidently, sometimes you may see e.g. i2.wp.com instead of gravatar.com http://omegadelta.net/2012/10/15/gravatar-the-type-of-image-you-are-trying-to-process-is-not-allowed/ - so that's a gravatar redirect to a caching service. I'm not sure what effect Ahh, I see - fbcdn.net redirects to facebook.com - I don't see any difference with fbcdn.net blocked because I already have facebook blocked. (None of this explains what's going on with Member aviv00's photo - I guess the Board software just can't understand or is suspicious of the link/info that aviv00 input into the avatar section.)
  24. I think Vini 'shot from the hip without thinking' - actually, pretty much every one of those blocked avatars isn't a unique avatar chosen by those users... it's just the MSFN default user avatar that is shown if users haven't chosen something other than the default... yep, the MSFN default avatar is a Gravatar avatar...
  25. Also ongoing here; http://neow.in/forum/topic/1198943-site-outages/ There is quoted Steven P. (presumably a Neowin Admin?); " It was due to one of the many email addresses that are tied to our account/domains not working. Although the email addresses on the public WHOIS do work and are valid. " As at this posts' date, a whois for www.neowin.net displays, within the three relevant email address fields (Registrant, Admin, Tech), two unique email addresses. I'm not on Neowin, (pity) - the question I'd be interested in - did ICANN neowin's Registrar, 'Domain.com, LLC', send their queries to every listed email address in Neowin's recorded Whois details, or only to the email address listed for the 'Registrant'? More interestingly, did neowin's Registrar send an informing email to their other WHOIS listed email address(es), informing that one of their WHOIS email addresses had failed to validate? @CharlotteTheHarlot , what do you suggest Xper should be aware (beware) of (for MSFN) - not having the same email address for all three fields or deficiencies in the Postal Address?
