I solved the captcha and can now download the file. I must be approved on the basis of my IP address because as an experiment, I went to the page with another browser and I wasn't challenged.

I only kept one copy of your message and the discussion may have occurred on

be. I don't use Send Space much but at times, I am asked to solve a captcha
and I can use the site without challenge for awhile. But I use it so seldom
that I don't know how long that time is.

I would suggest using something like we transfer. I'll find the link if you
are interested. It doesn't hagve the danger of hacked advertising that has
been present on Send Space over the years. If you are using it for free,
you might get hacked advertising and have malware downloaded onto your
computer unless you use the context menu and use save as or save link as,
whatever your browser calls it to download without advertising. And We
Transfer doesn't lower download speed if yu use it for free.

I don’t have any of these issues and I never restart tw-blue unless my pc is restarting.

Anyway, I think it will  receive an update sometime soon due to these recent changes in twitter  api.

Well minus some issues it works fairly well. If you don't restart it

after a while, it will start opening links in IE, instead of your

Perhaps something is set in a nonstandard way. Or you may use something that causes such a message. For example, do you have cookies set not to be allowed or do you use an ad blocker? You shouldn't receive a message about settings needing to be changed if you are using standard settings.

I don't know what message you got but it reflects some problems with your settings or with whatever browser you are using. I received no such message when I went to the site with the Brave browser.

It is important not to generalize one person's experience to the experiences people will have in general. In other words, don't not visit the site if you were going to.

Hi all.

I'm looking for a good talking watch. I'm not sure what's happened to
the selection at maxiaids but it's almost impossible to figure out
what you're getting there.

I used to have one from royal tell time that i really liked, it had 4
buttons and all the common watch functions and was digital. Somehow
it broke and no longer works late last year i got another one and
didn't look at the description to closely only to find out it's an analog watch.

What? why on earth are we reverting to analog? Why can't i find a
good digital watch anymore?

Using analog on a talking watch is just stupid unless the watch can
set itself and sync with the digital time which this one can't.


So with that rant having been written, anyone know where to find a
good talking watch? Preferably metal and with a round digital face.

And, no, i don't want a smart watch.


Thanks.

Re: Twitter Clients

Hi,
TWBlue and the Qube are still available, though whether they work or not is a different story. TWBlue hasn't had an update for over a year, and the Qube's last update was three years ago. Given how they're open source though, I wouldn't be surprised if they've been forked and maintained more regularly by others.
Cheers,
Damien.

You can disable this by asking brave to confirm the filename or location whenever a file is downloaded. I've done this under Download options in settings and consequently don't have this issue now.

I appreciate that this is done as an extra security measure but I'd love to find an option, even if it's somewhat hidden, to disable this.

The only times I've seen this is when the actual tabs where the download is triggered are not closed before exiting Brave, and where Brave is set to "Continue where you left off."  When it reopens that tab, it has no idea whether or not the download has been done before, so it will trigger again.

If you make a habit of closing any tab from which you've performed a download, or else going back a page or to another page, this should stop.
