Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

profile for w3d on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites


For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment How small can/should I make my partitions, on a dual boot with a shared middle drive?
You want to install games (and other apps?) on the same partition as Windows OS?

@the.midget OpenDNS can also be configured to block proxy sites. And as Benoit says, assuming a non-admin Windows account...

@Benoit localhost is nowhere on the public internet - that is what I meant.

comment Xampp: error 403 on Linux but not on Windows
On Windows you don't really have 'permissions', so you'll never get a 403 (Forbidden) unless you explicitly serve it.

comment Hacker sending email from hotmail, changing password doesn't stop it
I've had several contacts whose Hotmail account appears to have been compromised in this way. (It's happened again today!) I've not experienced this with other webmail services.

comment Adding GMail-like “archive” functionality to Windows Explorer
It might be worth noting that 'archiving' an email in Gmail does not actually 'move it' anywhere, it simply removes the 'inbox' label.

comment Firefox right-click: easy support for the Firefox or the site's menu?
@romkyns: Ah, yes that is true. The Apps key would seem to display the context menu for whatever page element (in the browser at least) has focus. Whilst this might work for anchors and some other tab-able elements, images do not seem to receive focus, so their context menu cannot be accessed by the keyboard? (Aside: I wonder how this affects accessibility for keyboard-only users?)

What do you mean "it does not override it"? If you right-click anywhere in the navigation area on the left on NewsBlur you get the green popup menu, you do not get the browsers default context menu, it has therefore been overridden. (Unless you have specifically unchecked the option in Firefox to prevent such behaviour.)

"This is just a drop down menu that's activated with right-clicking." - Yes, but in doing so it has overridden the applications default context menu (which is also opened by right clicking). It only opens at the mouse's location if the developer has specifically programmed it to do so.

-1 It works properly, but there IS a custom (context) menu on NewsBlur. The (green) menu shown in the picture is a drop down menu AND is also available as a right-mouse context menu, overriding the default. This is using FF8 with default settings (which permits scripts to replace context menus - the right mouse onclick event). IMO NewsBlur should not be overriding the context menu in this instance, since the same menu is already available via the drop down. Google Docs also has a context menu when in the document itself.

Disabling the context menu entirely was popular some years ago in an attempt to prevent users from viewing the source of the page or saving images from the website - but is considered bad practise, and doesn't really stop the user anyway.

Ah OK thanks. The default option appears to be to "Allow scripts to... disable or replace context menus"

Where is the option to enable/disable this feature? Or do you actually have to navigate to a website that attempts to override the right-click context menu?

comment Options to get a higher email send limit
@blunders: Well, this may be a matter of opinion, but I would have said that sending emails from your own domain would be more 'professional' than "name@gmail.com", which is essentially a disposable email address. In my opinion you would use a gmail address if you don't have your own domain. Not a domain like "z3", but what about your full name? eg. contact@yourfullname.me - may be .me since it is for personal correspondence? Btw... I use gmail, but I use my domains email address, which gmail allows you to do. (I've updated my answer regarding Thunderbird)
