A few years ago, the Canadian government (at that time it was a majority Conservative government under Stephen Harper) proposed legislation which would have weakened the privacy rights of all Canadians. Part of the justification was to allow easier apprehension and prosecution of people trafficking in child pornography. The justice minister, Vic Toews, said that anyone opposing the bill was in favour of child pornography. Of course, this was a ridiculous statement, creating a false dichotomy of "you're either with us or against us". Similarly, the media seems intent on painting anyone who favoured Great Britain's exit from the European …

As I understand it, there were problems on Sunday (Feb 24) which caused problems logging in. Daniweb would not accept my password (or so it said). Normally when I go to login I get presented with the login page with my userID (reverend Jim) and password already filled in. Now I was getting the login page with my email address instead of my userID. Manually entering my userID and password resulted in an indication that my password was incorrect. I clicked on the "Reset Password" which is supposed to send a reset email to a given address (which I entered). …

Is everyone familiar with this game? Just reply with the first word that comes to your mind when you think of the last word posted. You can't respond to the post with a comment, just the word that comes to your mind. It can only be a word or a short phrase.

This coming Sunday marks the one year anniversary of the Cambridge Analytica scandal story breaking and engulfing Facebook. Does *anyone* think Facebook, and in particular Zuckerberg himself, have learned *anything* other than they are both apparently immune from whatever smelly stuff hits the fan?

I'm hoping that people will post unusual or little known facts here. It would be proper to include a link to a source for confirmation. Here's a start. Speedy Gonzales was banned by the Cartoon Network for being an offensive stereotype, only to be returned after mass protest by the Hispanic-American community.

It is with deep regret that I inform everyone that it just very recently came to my attention that the DaniWeb database was breached in December 2015. Over a million user profiles, including email addresses and IP addresses, were stolen. Logins and passwords were protected through an additional security layer and were **NOT** able to be stolen. While encrypted versions of passwords were stolen, without access to the old version of DaniWeb's code base, there is no way for a hacker to figure out the very unique encryption method, which included multiple unique salts, which we used. Please note this …

Parents please be aware and very cautious of what your child watches on YouTube and KIDS YOUTUBE. There is a thing called ‘Momo’ that’s instructing kids to kill themselves, turn stoves on while everyone is sleep and even threatening to kill the children if they tell their parents!!! ![download.jpeg](/attachments/large/4/dc1303529642573b46b66ccb1a2992ce.jpeg)

I want to see your suggestions on comparing CPanel and FASTPANEL. I used CPanel for some time but later I changed to FASTPANEL which is absolutely free but provides you with the same opportunities. Also FASTPANEL's design looks much better than CPANEL's one. So now I can't understand why people pay for CPanel. What panel do you guys use and why?

I think I finally understand why Trump is doing so well (he recently pulled even with Hillary Clinton). It's only after years of shows like American Idol and America's Got Talent that his rise is possible. These shows got Americans used to the idea that they could vote with no actual consequences. In most cases (with very few exceptions), people with minimal talent are voted on and selected as "the winner", then almost immediately return to obscurity. In some cases (remember Sanjaya Malakar) there was an actual campaign to rig the vote so that a thoroughly undeserving candidate would win. …

Have been trying to change my profile pic via the community profile update avatar option. I keep getting told that 'The image you are attempting to upload doesn't fit into the allowed dimensions.' However, there is no clue as to what the allowed dimesions might be. The one I'm trying to upload has been sized down to 490x653 (171kb) and I can't recall what the limits previously were, will keep trying smaller and smaller - but thought it might be an idea to flag the max size in the error message that is thrown up.

Recently I realized that I not receive any email notification from DaniWeb. When I check on the User Settings, I saw this alert message > We have been having problems emailing you. Has your email address changed? Please update your email address to begin receiving email from us again. After I re-write my email, this message changed to > An email to verify your account has been sent to xxx@hotmail.com. Please click the link in the email to confirm your email address. But when I check my mail, I don't receive any email from DaniWeb.

I know a lot of the regulars and moderators are unhappy with the content currently on the homepage. In actuality, the homepage is designed to be an overview of what DaniWeb has to offer for newbies, while catering to more active DaniWeb members by only showing articles that are in the user's areas of interest, and have new content since they've been last viewed. The reason that regulars tend to be unhappy is because they visit DaniWeb so often, there isn't enough fresh content for the homepage to show. The Latest Posts button offers a stream of all the latest …

First how this happened. The Nissan Leaf from about 2011 to mid 2015 on the SV and SL models included Telematics. Telematics in thse models let the owner use a web site or smart phone app to query battery status, start or stop charging and turn on/off the climate control as well as get performance statistics. After years of warnings from AT&T that the 2G cellular network was going to shut down, AT&T did the shutdown in January 2017. This caused a lot of troubles in the M2M and Telematics space or business. Nissan responded by offering a (discounted?) upgrade …

OK, so we are thinking about bringing back the 'Member of the Month' feature in the monthly newsletter that goes out to all DaniWeb members. This was a staple in the DaniWeb Digest for many years, coming to an end at the start of 2016. The hall of fame was, aptly, entirely virtual but the kudos of being included as real as it gets. Three questions then: 1. Would you read the Member of the Month interview if it was brought back? 2. Would you be interested in being interviewed, or want to nominate another member for the interview? 3. …

As you noticed by the title I didn't used the term “know” since I find it more ambiguous then “you can code in”. To keep answers short lets limit ourselves to five languages at most , have the same list for strongest and weakest points and mention those point in brief (one or two sentences). Who will go first ?

To all in the last week or so who received a private message from me consisting only of the phrase, `Noli Mentula`, I sincerely apologize. In the previous incarnation of Daniweb, sending a private message was considerably different than in the new version. I had assumed that a message would not be sent unless/until I composed it, then clicked some equivalent of `Send`. You know. Like practically every other text messaging system ever invented. While trying to work through the new system with Dani I inadvertantly started conversations with several users. To further explain `noli mentula`... It fall into the …

Comparing a discussion with the home page. When I see the Home Page, top and center of each card is the member who did something such as Viewed, Gave Reputation, Endorsed and so on. Now you head to a discussion and who wrote this? Example at https://www.daniweb.com/programming/software-development/code/385622/google-map-control-vb-net The author is nowhere in sight.
