This is a testing forum
This forum is meant to test the software[1], the technical feasibility, and, to some extent, interest.

The goal isn't presently replacement of D&D or migration from D&D. Depending on what Opera decides, it may never be. For now, it is at most a safety net.

Please ask here if you have any questions about this forum not pertaining to administrative issues like forum categories, moderation, security questions, etc.

[1] Does it work, do we like it.

The first one is similar to the one I posted, while the second one is just a video file link which comes up as a new tab here, & as a "Save As" Download request.

Ahhh, you're correct my FireFox Quick Time Plugin streams mp3s (1814) in the browser.

With the .mkv video I have the choice to save it, or I can 'Open with' WMP.

I would have to guess I can choose for it to stream via option, but if I remember correctly, a long while ago I ordered it to always ask for this file type.

I could do the same with .mp3s too.

That's a pretty decent concept actually. It's a shame that it's probably not the most straightforward option.

I made the Image actual Youtube size in my example for no particular reason, but I would probably use a smaller (not too too much smaller) Image of the original Youtube (or video host of origin) Image (50-70%).........the actual intention is not to deceive the reader, but to signify that it is a Video they can watch, & a very limited visual taste as to the content of the Video.

The picture did get my Internet security alarms ringing. The time display at the bottom was surrounded by ClearType Christmas pixels. And since I don't use subpixel fonts, I knew it was not the real player....


BRAVO!!!!
My internal alarm always rings too .... Trust if you will, but if you're like me....always verify!!!

I just saw this: DnD Central
Discuss political madness, orchestrate grand religious debates, explore urban development potential, you name it.

Frans' sense of humor and his obvious intellect (...yeah, I'm sucking up! But I've read some of his writings -- including code...) don't explain "urban development"...

Let's test attaching something...
Gosh!

Attach:
(Clear Attachment)
(more attachments)
Allowed file types: css, js, py, odt, txt, tar.lz
Restrictions: 4 per post, maximum total size 192KB, maximum individual size 10KB
O'k, it's not helping at all.. >:( I guess we'd better think about where to put our stuff!:cry: :(

I haven't quite decided whether to turn attachments on or off, but note that 10kB isn't completely worthless. For instance, my Textarea Backup UserJS comes in at over 20kB, but compressed it can be less than 7kB. The main question there is whether it's worthwhile over e.g. PasteBin or Github.

I don't know either guy your mentioned last.
Yes, for text it's not insignificant. Next time somebody if not me will check attaching some txt or odt to see how it looks when done.

By the way, do we do grammar?

Oh, right. I think displaying the read count up there is kind of silly regardless, so I might remove it completely in the DnD theme.

O'k, let me test the attaching. By the way, I did try it just now. The story is that when one of the files occurred to be oversized, and I had an"error" page, the "back" button dropped me "to the void": I had the thread page that looked as if my attachment attempt had never existed, and my further "back-buttoning" proved the forum "really had thought" so. Perhaps I should've just right away hit my keyboard "back", but -- are we testing the place or what?

I can't confirm that. The message remains intact in Opera/Presto, Chromium, and Firefox. (As an aside, clearly ODT was a mistake. It's way too bloated.)

O'k, they look that way... (No "in-page view"? No? Just asking...)

Well (not exactly), what I was trying to note about the attaching in that failed attempt mentioned, is:

  • what about RTF? No way? And - ods? Just asking...

  • most of the odts I went through in my files trying to find something to attach here are much more than 10 kB; I mean is that '10kB' just to be a plain text 1 page thing or what? that'll be not at all enough, I guess...

(checked the "list" feature (not numbered))

Besides, while I was typing,

Correction: I saw your "meanwhile" submission, ok. I just didn't get it

  • the other posts on the preview page are upside-down and

  • I didn't thus get what that was about.

Yes, my forum settings implement that I see the posts chronologically not "the newest first". But the preview displayed posts the other way.

I use Chrome. And the site with 150% zoom -- and I set that BEFORE you've adjusted the text range from your side.
O'k, we dump odt? And other OO, ok. Now what about RTF? They are obviously plain text and usually not very heavy as well. The thing is I, for one, prefer the format to make my notes and other stuff here offline...

You can use e.g. Dropbox or Wuala as a file sharing service.

I haven't found any file Dropbox wouldn't accept, & accumulative storage space is a generous 2gb--up to 16 gb with referrals (last I checked).....I'm not familiar with Wulala.

A short couple of months ago, Dropbox discontinued 'Public Links' whereas if you uploaded to a special folder called 'Public'.

Dropbox would generate a link upon request---generate a public link for sharing the file,

Like I said, that's been done away with, but I know a manipulative work-around, that enables you to manually create your own sharing link for any file you wish to share.

What they replaced the sharing option PUBLIC feature with is a 'User to User' collaborative synced folder system.

You can set up a 'shared with' folder whereas anything uploaded can be collaboratively shared/synched with other selected Dropbox user(s).

Here's my Dropbox Referral Link....all you need to do is sign up for the free service (there is a paid PRO service too) & when you do we both earn another 500mb of free space to upload to. No obligation, but hell free space is free space...

Wuala is used by Aard Dictionary to host its downloads. It's a lot like Dropbox, but more secure in more ways than just being European. On the downside, usability is lower.
