Re: HELP WANTED: MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint Files

I've uploaded a sample doc I found online that tests a couple things, among the more interesting things are an embedded excel spreadsheet and an embedded bitmap image. It repeats everything until it takes up 5 megabytes of space.

I just really don't care for the harsh attitude that's so prevalent here.

Re: ReactOS 0.4.9 released

I mean, ReactOS' current usb stack only recognizes usb 1.1 devices (my verbatim 256mb pen drive from 2006 is fully functional) but 2.0 are totally ignored by the system (my Imation 8GB pen drive from 2014 don't work). Odd, my 8 and 16 gigabyte flash drives are recognized as normal on my test machin...

On a sidenote, I may have just inadvertently introduced a huge lab of white hat hackers to ReactOS after leaving a ReactOS VM running in Sac State's Riverside Hall Room 2004 computer lab.
I'd call that a good thing. Maybe they'll take an interest and do more than put some games on it :lol:.

Chrome tells you why it's blocked. SourceForge is on Google's list of sites where malware is distributed.

FireFox isn't so careful.
SourceForge has been clean for awhile now, so it's chrome that's behind.

Re: EPIC WIN!

The powder toy from http://powdertoy.co.uk/ runs pretty well in ROS in the latest nightly 4.10-315. Its GPLv3 licensed and would fit well in the ROS program repository.

Also, this screenshot is from real hardware running the game from an HP pavillion dv6500.

Re: How much have you donated

The last ten years I donated time for any Chemnitz Linux Days and enough money too. No clue what this thread is for and why anyone should post it here, but feel free to. It's a discussion thread in off-topic, why does anything exist here? Back on-toppic , i've been eyeballing a green ReactOS shirt ...

Re: Support of Java 8 (or even 9) ?

I've been able to run old school runescape using the osbuddy launcher and it runs well. It uses the most recent java 8 by default if i'm remembering right.

Re: OS Programming Tutorial[Specifically for ReactOS type]

Note: Never mention ReactOS or Linux in the same sentence assuming that the two are in some way alike. Someone will drop a brick from a very great height. It is one of the forum taboos here. There is actually a way in which they're alike. Both LInux and ReactOS are opensource counterparts to closed...

Re: Year 2038 problem

This isn't a "Year 2038" problem, it's a "Linux developers are dumb as bricks" problem, every other Unix hardened against this about a decade before Linux did, and of course Windows has always used 64-bit time. I love it when the world panics over Linux being garbage, you'd think they'd learn by no...

Re: Unofficial ReactOS Application Compatibility Database

They are probably aware of that. Otherwise, they would have deleted it. It has zero tests submitted so far, if any tests get submitted they'd probably get rejected by a maintainer for not being able to provide the correct wine version along with not accepting test data from anything beyond official...

Re: itunes, please

Now I'm curious if alternatives like copyTrans manager work in ROS, BRB.

edit: the installer can't connect to the internet, so unless there is an offline installer copyTrans has issues too.
