  1. Why would someone lax security just because it's not critical? Three tries I think is a fairly standard practice for sites regardless of the content/purpose. The problem appears to be that you don't remember your login details, not an issue with the forum login system. The login system here isn't much different from others on other social platforms, except lacking something like 2FA of course. To solve the actual issue here, I think you should take advantage of the username and password saving feature in Chrome (if that's what you're using) or store your login details in a place that you're most comfortable with. Some examples to look at are 1password, lastpass, or if you don't trust online mediums, a local-offline tool keepass. Or just write them down on paper/notecards. However, when trying to log in with just my email it does not appear to work as you've said. Only the username appears to work. It's probably something to be brought up to the forum software InvisionCommunity which this is based off of.
  2. This is definitely possible using pyrochild's Trail plugin and a little bit of work. 1. Make sure your text is on a second layer (Layer 3 in photo) surrounded by transparency. 2. Duplicate that layer of text (Layer 2 in photo). 3. Use the Trail plugin with fade-out disabled, max distance (500 unfortunately but should be enough), and spacing of 1. 4. Use magic wand to select your trailed text and fill using the color of choice... done! Result:
  3. There also appears to be the DataContractJsonSerializer also built into the .NET Framework.
  4. Performance Update Hey everyone, I've done some updates to make the loading and performance of the search app faster again! All the changes in more detail can be found here on the pull request. In short, the generated site is now smaller and load times are significantly faster (~.5s to 1s) --- now using the compress layout. Main javascript file is now in a module-pattern and the main css is now in scss format for easier maintenance.
  5. You may be confused as to the active layer and what the checkbox means. The checkboxes will turn rendered layers on and off and does not affect whether you can draw in them or not. The currently selected layer (highlighted in blue) is the layer that you are currently interacting with, draw on, etc. regardless of whether the check is selected or not.
  6. Well, if we were to go back in time... here's some logo history via wayback-machine: (circa 2006) (also circa 2006) (circa 2013 to present) In my opinion, it has been modernized to an extent. The current logo looks nice and shouldn't need to change aside from a potentially higher resolution.
  7. Hey Scott, it looks like all of the links and one image (by AndrewDavid) in that thread are broken / no longer exist.
  8. It looks like your image is not corrupted but the problem was that you overwrote the pdn file as a png -- preserving the pdn file extension. You will have to change the file extension from pdn to png and you may open the image again! However, since you overwrote it with the png version, if you had layers in your pdn file you will have lost those. You can rename the file with command prompt by cd'ing to the path the file is located and then renaming it. C:\Users\MyUsername>cd Desktop\ C:\Users\MyUsername\Desktop>rename MyImage.pdn MyImage.png
  9. There are no infected links going on here. Let's break down the "" link you are seeing. Note two things: Invisioncommunity makes the software this forum uses and their cloud service uses amazon aws.; cloud storage service ips-cic-filestore/ "IPS" stands for Invision Power Services and "CiC" appears to stand for community in the cloud. This is the cloud or "filestore" for an Invision-based forum. r125076/ I assume this is the forum id for Paint.NET of some kind to separate files from other forums in the filestore. monthly_08_2015/<file name here> The filestore breaks up uploaded files by months. It is not a confirmed malware... sure in the general sense someone could use "s3.amazonaws" storage to host malware of their own. However, the service and domain itself are not malware. The file you were downloading is not malware. Amazon AWS is a very popular service used by many sites for storage and other services which is why you would be seeing it everywhere as you navigate the web. You did a scan and nothing turned up because you are fine!
  10. Update! First time I'm posting an update here haha. I bring a performance enhancement to the Plugin Index by pre-loading the data into the page with Jekyll so that there is no need to fetch the data after page load. You should see the plugins on the page now without any delay!
  11. How old is the laptop? Could the battery be going bad? By saying you checked for something in the background, did you look at the task manager processes?
  12. Are you able to print something from another program: Microsoft Word; Notepad; Web browser? If you can't than it is either your machine or the printer but if you can than it may be something wrong with your Paint.NET installation.
  13. I am getting the same error but when pasting the index JSON into JSONLint all seems to be good. I found a similar problem parsing JSON and C# with the same "Invalid JSON primitive: ." due to an errant comma but no errant comma is present; JSONLint would show this as an error when validating. I am not sure what is wrong.
