my opera weirdness

For several days now, myopera has stopped notifying me about comments to my own blog. It still notifies me of all other subscriptions on the blogs of others. There seems to be nothing in the forums about this so far.

Anybody else seeing this?

  1. So far I have not noticed. For a time there I was getting two duplicate emails every time someone commented.

  2. operainchicago

    same behavior on your desktop, laptop and phone Dave?

  3. Hmm, works fine for me… :right:

  4. For the first time in 2 days I am again seeing the correct notifications under the "news" URL, so maybe it's over. I got paranoid that I was going to miss things.

  5. Just on a lark, maybe a password change is appropriate. Doing it now.

    strange ! not experiencing this problem

  7. That's a good idea. Randomize and sync through opera link πŸ˜‰

    It happened for two days here. No notification of comments to my blog. I had to find out from the news stream. There were no subscription notifications.Originally posted by AleksOD:

    Done done it. All my passwords are insane, like: sdg94GHdy68(dsc$fg+Wv!g7H.I keep major ones on a rotation schedule. All are kept in an encrypted file.

  9. It's a fave! Just playing with the commands is fun. :up:Just remember, [ctrl]+[c] is your friend.

    I don't know why I read this and immediately thought of Marathon Man: "Tell me, is it safe?" I suppose I need to watch it again.I'm far too lazy to think up or remember passwords that heinous, so I use this to generate them:

    cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'a-zA-Z0-9/-@' | fold -w 8 | head -n 10

    Much smaller and easier to remember.

  11. The output is adorable. πŸ˜€

    You quite a security freak then, I do the same πŸ˜‰

  13. Also, for when it's hopeless, kill -9 [process number]

    They're after us! πŸ˜€ I do like good computer, password, security practices, almost just for the mental exercise and entertainment of it all.Funny story. I was in Washington DC several years ago. At that time I had a "feature phone", which is a non-smartphone that can do multiple things. After walking around the perimeter of the White House fence and taking a few pictures and transmitting them, my phone malfunctioned and locked up. It took dropping the battery out of it to get it to run again. It had never done that before or since.Coincidence, or it got hit by a "ray"? :eyes:

  15. I need help. I need to try a new distro, on which I can have more control. Any suggestions Dave?

    It's the White House again. :p

    The only ones I've had real experience with within the last 10 years are: Slackware, the *buntus, and Debian.It's getting to be awhile since I ran Slackware, so I think I'm down to just the *buntus and Debian. I love them both.Arch Linux and Gentoo appeal to some people. I've never tried them, though they sound appealing.The first three years I ran Linux, I used to distro jump a lot. Then a wizard I relied on recommended that I pick just one, and really learn the mofo. That served me well for years on Slackware. Then I tried Ubuntu, loved the package manager, and never looked back. If you can run Ubuntu reasonably well, you can run Debian, and it's a little more erotic just due to its legacy. Do testing (Wheezy), or you'll forever be disappointed at how old the software is.In other words, I only know what makes me happy.–Some other observations:Some are loving Trisquel now http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trisquel . The maintainers seem to be serious, so it might have longevity.As much as I admire Richard Stallman and his distro gNewSense, I get the impression it is his and some other's spare-time project, and will never get very far as a result. http://www.gnewsense.org–In short, if it's not Debian or *buntu, I don't know anymore.

  18. Good news. I haven't received an email about any of the posts since my last post. Bah. I must be jinxed. :jester:

    Well then I am stuck with Ubuntu.Just tried alpha 2 of Oneric. After that again installed 11.04 but again dissatisfied and now installed and configured 10.04 LTS.

    Yeah, we all do different things with the OS, not that I'd know what to recommend even if I knew what you did.For my distro needs and preferences, I look for the following:–emphasis on free (libre), but doesn't have to be 100% militant about it. I'll take some availability of non-free, but I don't want it shoveled in there in advance.–large developer and user base.–longevity. You can look at a distro webpage and tell if it's too excited sounding, or too much one person's project.–I prefer community based distros, though Ubuntu's corporate backing seems to work OK as does Slackware's "benevolent dictator" system.

    Sadly, I spoke too soon. It actually turned out to be a problem with kmail losing contact with my fetchmail/IMAP server. Fail.:cry:

    I've been using LinuxMint 11, lately. Very nice.

    I also use LinuxMint. I have played around with Puppy and Ubuntu but none of the others. All three seem quite good to me.
