Skype used to have a setting that would allow me to block all unsolicited contact requests. Shortly after Microsoft acquired Skype this feature was removed. I used to get 2-3 requests per week and it was easy enough to delete-and-report-abuse although I suspect nobody ever actually looked at these reports. However, I am now getting 5-10 requests per day from users with obviously bot-generated accounts. I've checked google and the Skype forums and it is apparent from the comments that many other people are having the same problem and are pissed off. Microsoft/Skype does not participate in any discussions about …

For some strange reason, I can't access the following websites: www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/ www.thoroldedition.ca (these are two adject town news sites that I assume use the same server to keep their website running) These websites work on my phone and using another person's computer connected to the same router that I'm currently linked to. It also works if I'm using a proxy on my computer. Any idea how to fix this and what caused this issue (i.e. being blocked by these two websites only on my computer?)

Are exceptions standardized in C++? I mean if the rules of exception handling might be changed in the future. i.e: int Funct1(int) throw(); // does it throw an exception?

I am working on a responsive web design. For some resolutions like below 800px across, I hide a whole div with syntax such as: @media only (max-width : 800px) { div.well._menu { display: none; } } How do I bring the div back to its default if the display property has not been declared originally? Do I use inherit? @media only (min-width : 801px) { div.well._menu { display: inherit; } }

I have a Uniden wireless security system installed. The system consists of two wireless cameras and a small, handheld receiver with an LCD screen. The receiver has a USB connector to allow it to connect to my laptop. Software runs on the laptop which allows me to monitor the cameras and record the video from the receiver. The cameras communicate wirelessly only to the receiver, not to my computer. Here's the odd thing - there is constant outgoing network activity associated with the executable, **Uniden Surveillance System.exe**. I cannot disable the wireless interface on my laptop as that is necessary …

Hi, I am pretty new to C# and cannot seem to find an answer to this question after 10 minutes google searching. What is the best way to suspend a program to wait for input on a textbox, specifically enter. I think my current problem is that I am coding inside the form, so if I want to do a block on it (like a semaphore) I end up suspending the textbox inside the form as well. I attempted to make a thread that would handle the main execution, but it does not have direct access to the form since …

Hi, I'm trying to build an windows application in C#, where i will be using Cache Application Block. I have downloaded the Microsoft's Enterprise Library (5.0), & also tried a sample too.. The sample works fine but there is a catch. I'm not willing to use a configuration file in my application, so i'm willing to create the configuration file in run time only. i just wanted to know if there is any way to apply the Cache feature without using the Config file in the application. Hoping for a reply soon. Thanks!

Good evening. I'm having issues related to subprocesses. What I'm trying to do is launch another program that has a command-line mode (Gnucap, in case it matters) as a child process from my Java program, then communicate with it by reading from its standard output and writing to its command line. When I launch the child process, however, I find that when I try to read from the child's standard output, it only reads up until the end of the last complete line of output before the command prompt. After that, when I try to read the next byte from …

Hi all, I want to know if it is possible and how to intercept an existing javascript keybind and block it. For example, a website has some javascript that, when the user hits the letter "H" on the keyboard, the website automatically runs a function, e.g. redirecting to another web page. I want to block this functionality after it has been loaded into the page. Is this possible? Perhaps the stoppropagation function? Or maybe simply re-assign the key event to just run an empty function? Thanks, Max.
