  1. Where is the LAA version of built 45798 (or newer?)

    I want to try and use my powers of persuasion to get the developers to turn that LAA flag ON.  I won't mention you unless you want me to.  You DESERVE all the credit, but I'm not sure that you WANT to be credited with the LAA idea until AFTER they implement it.  I know that in the past, that Dreadwingknight or whatever his name is, has been a pain in my ass whenever I suggested anything. 

    I'm a bit of compuutore geenyus myself..  but I was unable to find where the LAA flag is in the binary code.   I know how to MODIFY code, but I'm not so good at finding the bits to modify.



    I  used to help a Russian programmer develop, market, sell, and provide tech support for his software.  The problem was.. that software was so good, that people were cracking it's copy protection within DAYS of every release!  People would download our program, loved it.. purchased the "key code" to unlock it.. then cancel the transaction with their credit card company and get a full refund.  About 2/3 of the sales wound up getting refunded.. even 6 months after the transaction!  

    The Russian guy gave up on the PC version of his software, and stuck with the Apple Version.  The sales went down the toilet.. and I think he may have committed suicide... but that's another long story.

      I'm not having luck downloading that file.  Keeps saying it is a virus and will not allow me to download it.  It seems that Google has tightened up their security to the point where nothing gets through.  In fact, that software I was selling with the Russian was affected that way.  It got tagged as being malware, and nobody could download it anymore. Unless a programmer submits their source code to Microsoft, Microsoft labels is as "potential malware" and effectively kills the product. 

      Anyway... is there some other way I can get that file?   I have various email accounts   gmail, outlook, ymail, yahoo  and could make some other email account.  I think if you made a zip file or rar file with a password on it.. then it would get through.. because without the password, they can't scan it.

      Thanks..that worked.. minutes ago.. I found another trick to get it downloaded..  Firefox blocks it completely.. but I got a link... and opened the link in Chrome and was able to download it that way also!

  2. My Utorrent pane suddently went from 2 panes to one.. and I did every trick in the book to fix it, including deleting the settings.dat file and regenerating the default.  That didn't fix it. 

    What DID fix it was downloading Rafi's settings. dat file.   That fixed the problem and also improved other things quite a bit.  I am now tweaking Rafis settings to suit my own needs. 

    What puzzles me is.. I have no idea what settings are in Rafi's settings.dat file that make it work right.  I don't see anything about pane controls.  I have seen dozens of people posting about the same problem for years.  

    I would like to know how to fix that problem instead of having to replace my settings with a transfusion of Rafi's settings.

      Glad to hear it helped you. Screenshot (including menu->options)? Usually F4->F7 control the panes. Two monitors setup can sometimes be an issue...

      Thanks for the tips, but it wasn't any of that.  

      One of these days I will compare the defective settings.dat file with the one you posted.  You made some other improvements in the appearance that I can't find in the settings.  I backed up the defective one.  I think my cat screwed up the settings when he was stomping on my keyboard.  

      One setting you have set, which I did not like is that torrents don't start downloading automatically.

      >One setting you have set, which I did not like is that torrents don't start downloading automatically.  

      I like that  since I start them automatically using RSS downloader or using Medusa TV app . But I think you might be right, it is better to set to auto-run for other users. I'll make a note to change it on that file...
