  1. Nord Vpn 3 year plan has been on my TO-BUY list for a while. It's about 110$ for three years, compared to the 12$ monthly subscription. VPN is a service that routes your internet from your computer to the outside world. It serves a hiding barrier that conceals your true identity. Using VPN has maany advantages, some of which are : 1) Your isp cannot access your traffic, therefore cannot block you from visiting certain websites. 2) You can safely use public wifi on airports or anywhere for that matter without worrying about someone stealing your login credentials or credit card info. 3) You can spoof your location so that you appear to be logged from somewhere else in the world ( depending on the location of the server your logged in ). This can let you access Geo-restricted content such as the US Netflix - anywhere in the world. In short -> with a vpn, you put a mask like a ninja before going out in public so no one knows who you are Some of the considerations would be 1) how many servers does the vpn provide? what kind of servers are available? Sometimes you would need privacy server, sometime you would need server with higher speed transfer. 2) does the VPN log the activity of its user? If they do, that defies the purpose of using a vpn since in some circumstances, they would eventually be obliged with a warrant to provide those logs to the authorities. 3) where's the VPN registered? The laws of the country apply to the whole vpn service... For example NordVPN is based in Panama, as the country has no mandatory data retention laws and does not participate in the Five Eyes or Fourteen Eyes alliances.
  2. Andrej, you have been lurking long enough, we miss your participation...:)

  3. It's so interesting that everyone so far stated that you've been doing programming back in the days, and you've given up on it. I cannot imagine how was it to be a computer programmer back then... No windows OS, assembler code, few KB's of RAM, no IDE, no intellisense (code-completion), no code linters (code analyzers that spot errors).. it's no wonder that all of you gave up programming... The job industry is so much different today. Currently I work full-time as a full-stack web developer working on enterprise level web applications. It's a demanding and challenging job, but it's nowhere as it was few decades ago. Being part of the millennial generation ( i'm born some time before that, but still ), I got a jump-start to using computers. From early days i had a computer at home and i would do all sort of thing to it. Reinstalling Windows XP was among the first accomplishments Every now and then i would watch videos about programming.. i would occasionally start to read some book for C++, Visual Basic etc... i would do some calculator program and then give up. I would read different computer blogs about what-not. That way i laid the foundation that would later serve me when i would dive deep into web programming. I attended few Microsoft courses after high school instead of going to University and shortly after that i got an internship in a company, that would later offer me a job and I'm still there...
  4. There are pretty advanced search options on google, it's just that very few people are aware of them, even less people use them. With a quick google search about google search techniques this blog came up. https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/google-advanced-search-tips It's quite useful. Many times i use it to search images that are on our website, because all of the images have a "hidden" text description which is picked up by google search.
  5. I always tried to find some photo viewing program that will suit my taste... but i never found it. With win10 I cant stand the new photos program. But i really like the win7 default photo viewer. There's a way to restore it and use it on win10. Also, VLC is de facto the best app for any media playback, be it audio or video.
  6. Since i don't think you can afford my services.. I'll do that for free
  7. There's a tool made for this purpose made by a brother. I've managed to merge 3 backups into one. Search for JWLMerge and you'll find a link pointing to Github page. That's the thing you're looking for. Sent from my WAS-LX1 using Tapatalk
  8. Here's a word document containing the transcript of the talk. Coping With the Plague of Your Heart.docx

  10. They are definitely familiar with the talk, since it's the host who is making up the talk. They have the freedom to choose a topic that they like, and then the video department will make sure to find and put together material that is bases on the talk.. But yeah, the brother giving the talk is very much familiar with the talk, since its him who put it together. Sent from my WAS-LX1 using Tapatalk
  11. Although we want to think only the best of our brother, they are 100% using teleprompter. It's been caught on camera on few of broadcasts. I can't remember without searching first, but I think there was a video where brother Stephen Lett was explaining about the translations of the monthly broadcast, and there you can see the teleprompter on camera. I'll let you know when I find it. Sent from my WAS-LX1 using Tapatalk
  12. Well... Want to know the truth? Personally I don't have an antivuris. I do use Malwarebytes on my PC tho. Do i feel that you need antivirus on a PC? Nope, you don't need it. Although It's a good measure of precaution for the average computer user. Easily attractive to viruses? NO! You don't attract viruses. You either let them in, or shut the door in their face. There are handful of ways on which you can let a virus in your computer. even less on an android device. Email attachment, phishing email, malicious websites, untrusted programs, advertisement on a website or in app etc... So as long as you don't CLICK on any unknown or phishing link, and don't install untrusted programs (e.g. exe files for PC, apk for Android), you're safe. oh and btw, you don't accidentally download and install malicious program. There are just too much steps involved to be accidental. It takes a bit of common sense and little knowledge of the ways you can get infected, and you're good to go.
  13. The developer of the program replied to my issue and fixed the problem. After that I was able to merge two files. I didn't really try to use it afterwards. I'll try tonight. What I found out is that you cannot merge the newly created file with another backup file. Thats what I ultimately want, since I had 4 devices at one point, and I was hoping to merge them all. I'll report that issue as well and see what's comes out of it. Sent from my WAS-LX1 using Tapatalk
  14. You don't need any. All those programs reporting that you have hundreds of malicious programs on your phone are malicious themselves. As long as you don't install suspicious apk files, you definitely don't need an antivirus on your android device. If you don't know what's an apk, it's all the more reasons why you don't need an antivirus since you're protected by default. Sent from my WAS-LX1 using Tapatalk
  15. I tried to use to utility today, and encountered an error. Already have submitted the issue to the developer. It would be great to hear how did other go. Although i don't expect much comments since only few would know how to use it in the first place
