It just got worse. As I wrote at Forbes yesterday, FB has now confirmed (albeit very quietly as an update to a month old post and on the day the Mueller report was published) that millions of Instagram passwords were stored in plain text as well...

Hi Cindy - welcome to DaniWeb. I have 'omnia causa fiunt' tattooed on my lower back (Latin for 'everything happens for a reason') funnily enough!

Building Links is Like Shaving - If You Don't do it Every Day You Look Like a Bum

I haven't shaved for years. I don't look like a bum. I look like a man with a beard. Just saying...

Morning! And welcome to DaniWeb...

What Dani said. Most (all?) of the WordPress commercial/pro themes are highly customisable and you would be hard-pressed to identify them as being templated at all. Sure, plenty of folk will simply use an out of the box theme, and that's especially true when we are talking the free themes being used on a personal basis, but even so I still don't find myself saying WP or MR as I browse the web day to day.

Welcome to DaniWeb Nayna


Six months ago I was reviewing my experience with another Anker 'Soundcore' earbud product, the Liberty Lites. I liked these, and they quickly became my everyday audio companion while out on my long walks in the Yorkshire countryside. I did, however, have some issues with the volume never being quite loud enough and ultimately the three hour playtime ended up being just not enough for long train travel or flights. So, I started looking at the alternatives. Naturally I started looking at the likes of the Apple AirPods (once I had discovered you can use them with Android phones) and the new Samsung Galaxy Buds. Both look really cool and feature 'true-wireless' connectivity plus super battery life. Unfortunately, both also break my 'never gonna pay more than £100 for freakin' earbuds man' rule; and then some.

Then I stumbled across one of the best kept secrets out there: Anker also sell true-wireless AirPod look-a-like earbuds and they come in at well under the £100. In fact, they cost just £79.99 here in the UK. Actually, scrap the 'just' as in the US they are $79.99 which at the current exchange rate is about £61. At that price they would be an absolute bargain, but even at a shade under £80 they are still half the cost of AirPods with the standard charging case (AirPods with a wireless charging case cost 2.5 times as much!) and the pre-order price on the Galaxy Buds is £139 so not a great deal ...

Hello there - this looks like it could well be a homework assignment, which is not a problem. However, just asking for code without showing us how far you have got and detailing the issues you are having with that code is. So, please let us see the code (or pseudo-code) you have and explain where you are getting stuck, then I'm sure there are folk here who will be able to help you move on.

Sure is, just hit the contribute button and make sure to ask your question in the most appropriate section (programming | software dev) - good luck fella!

Scroll up to the first message, it explains it there.

This thread started nine years ago with a quote by Homer, so I thought it was time for another.

“I've learned that life is one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead.”

Welcome to DaniWeb Ashish. Take the opportunity to have a look around the subjects that interest you most, as well as absorbing the community rules, and I'm sure you will find everything you could want in a supportive tech community here!

Personally I hate being preached to within news reports and the like (either ereligiously or politically) where I value true neutrality. However, as far as individuals are concerned, at work or play, I see no reason why they should not be able to wear religious symbols as long as they are not evangelizing their belief in the workplace or to customers/clients whatever. I certainly don't regard someone wearing a crucifix nor a hijab nor a pagan tattoo for that matter (I have plenty of the latter as I identify with pagan spiritulaism rather than any formal/organized religion/faith.)

A lack of tolerance, not just in the religious sense, is at the heart of most of the problems in the world today - why add more intolerance into the mix? Live long and prosper, love and peace to all.

On the connected with similar interests front, as I suspected I think being admin rather colours my contact with others so the algorithm probably doesn't stand much of a chance of working out what my actual interests are.

"WebXeros is a top rated digital marketing company" apparently, yet you need to ask about relatively basic SEO concepts that have been discussed all over the web for the last ten years?

And, of course, a big warm welcome to DaniWeb!

what can i learn from this community?

What Jim said, to which I would only add the zen-like "what is it you are looking for?"

The tl;dr is

The Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal was a major political scandal in early 2018 when it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica had harvested the personal data of millions of people's Facebook profiles without their consent and used it for political purposes. It has been described as a watershed moment in the public understanding of personal data and precipitated a massive fall in Facebook's stock price and calls for tighter regulation of tech companies' use of data.


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?

There are no 'trustable' sites selling followers and likes. How can you trust a service selling you something on the basis it will increase the producticivity/value of your account when the practise is against the terms and conditions of all social media sites and when (rather than if) you get caught your accouint will be closed?

Could you have perhaps made a typo in the email?

I honestly don't think so, but it's always a slim possibility of course ;-)

You might want to be a little more specific in the problems you are having with this and the help you need. DaniWeb members are hugely experienced and skilled, but mindreading isn't usually one of their talents :-)

Logged out, hit forgot my password, entered email, reset link arrived immediately. So, seems to be working now no problem :-)

Truth is, we are just as ill-informed this side of the pond. Trying to figure out what is happening with Brexit is pretty much the same as trying to figure out WTF Trump is talking about on most any subject.

A no deal exit would, by every measure apart from those of the hard-right of the Tory party, be an economic disaster for the UK. This is evidenced by the amount of money the government has thrown at contingency planning for that eventuality which include such things as the stockpiling of drugs and even strategies for military operations in case of mass public disorder.

May has been playing a high-stakes game using the no-deal trump card with both the EU and parliament: give us the changes to the plan we want or we will walk away and everyone loses big time/vote for my plan or everyone loses big time. Which might have worked apart from the fact that May is the worse poker player ever and she is playing against the EU which has aces up the sleeve while she only has a pair of threes. Her ability to bluff is on a par with her ability to dance.

The second referendum idea makes a lot of sense, but has been played down by both the government (too scared of the European Research Group wing of her party and too scared of the government being toppled and another general election) and the Labour party (too scared of losing the vote ...

Plesk, just to throw another into the mix. Why? A combination of legacy and lethargy with a bit of if it ain't broke for good measure I guess...

The Internet is mostly not truth

That's a bit of a Trumpian sweeping statement. I'd love to see the stats that back up your assertion...

rproffitt commented: I'd have to include spam email traffic. Something like 300 billion spam emails a day. There's more. +0

This is really odd, as I have still not had any password reset mails despite requesting them around the same time as Jim.

This is what happens when you change your login password hash algorithm without considering to create a fallback mechanism

Apart from the fact that Dani did create a fallback mechanism, of course.

and we had a fallback mechanism in place until late-2017. (I think 2+ years should have been enough time to give everyone who cared to change thier password...)

a strong signal to get away if you are still here

some may be justified in asking why

C'mon guys, I appreciate that glitches such as this are annoying and I appreciate that DaniWeb isn't as busy as it used to be. However, Dani remains one of the most responsive site owners that I have ever encountered, and I've been around online communmities for 30 odd years now since the days of FidoNet, Prestel, Usenet etc. She's explained that it's been a tough couple of weeks, and we all hvae those, so cut her a break maybe rather than going for the jugular? Just saying...

I had the same login problem but used the Facebook route to skirt around it. Oddly though, I've not yet had any of the delayed password reset emails...
