@joshl They need people to agree with those terms because of GDPR.
Get it on the news recently, and Google and a couple of others wrote me a letter - changing PP due to new regulations. Feels more like a formality...
Yes, I guess so.
I have several Yahoo e-mail accounts, one of which is through Sky, who use Yahoo for their e-mail.
Never had any trouble reaching them unless there's a temporary fault, but they have been making a lot of changes in recent months. The log-off dialogue for instance is now completely different from six months ago, and it no longer re-directs you to the Yahoo home page when you log off (which is a good thing!)
@joshl It allows you to minimize the composer window. You can have more than one Composer opened simultaneously and, if you wish, switch between them using these buttons. Finally, if you have any chats open they would pop up there as icons with avatars of your interlocutor, next to that big red circle, too.
@joshl said in Opera 36 stopped loading anything nor shutting properly:
For a couple of times in a row, my Opera 36 has given me a BSoD upon its closing.
I had a little window - of Windows' looks - saying something about some preferences file that could not be read or about that. I'm not sure if it was about this Opera because I'm not sure if it was at all open at the moment... Or it was when I was clicking to open it? Not sure...
I had to open it this morning. Finding a page.
Yes, it seems very much that this warning windowlet has relevance to this Opera. It appeared again -- after I clicked to open and before the opening itself happened; blinking of my Desktop screen there was, too...
There was no BSoD this time, maybe due to the session being quite short...
@joshl OK. I had assumed the d: drive was a physically different piece of hardware - I hadn't considered it as being a separate partition on the same physical drive as c:. The possibility of surface problems on a second physical drive was why I raised the earlier question. With both partitions instead living on the same drive, the odds are that if there aren't sector/drive issues on one partition, the same would be true for the other partition.
I certainly hope you can get yourself on the road to some meaningful healing finally... I assume it's still the arm issue?
Some not so bad development recently!
It appeared my mobile operator had got a subsidiary ISP! A new server just recently popped up in my Ookla tests: "Megafon"; amazing results!
I called them MO and asked, they told it was theirs, which I just mentioned:)
Cool, cosy or both? This morning's test:
This site is encrypted (and maintained?) by the "Opera AS" - which I heard, is no longer doing the browser.
Opera AS is the one who makes the browser.
Opera ASA is the part of Opera that was not bought by the Chinese consortium. They are the Holding that owns AdColony, Surfeasy, Skyfire, etc.
They are no longer responsible for making the browser.
So why did I remember it the other way round??
Tufuzay, would you mind going to Hell with your Russians!?
Emigrant Russians, on the other hand, would do, but those would usually try to assimilate.
Please do not confuse the Great Under-the-Sky doing business with the post-Stalin shit of a country we have become here. The Chinese have retained their brains while we haven't. By far.
@joshl Hope your condition improves, Josh! I played a few good fames from Steam in the past year (they're a bit old). "This War of Mine" (thought provoking) "The Stanley Parable" (Witty and indie) and "Stellaris" (grand strategy).
The SurfEasy VPN is outside of Opera...
Well, as you say. The thing is I definitely saw icons for operating systems AND browsers in the same row/category on that page and another. Thus I guessed SE had it both - or like universal...
@leocg said in What the Hell is Going On!!!:
I think that keeping old inactive topics opened in a tech forum may be a door to confusion, that why I prefer to close them from time to time.
agree in general, nut the lounge? post in that should stay open.

... No, I have not tried other browsers yet. And I'm not sure if I will: Chrome is buggy, outdated and dangerous, even perhaps infested; my Opera 36 gets me BSoD every exit now; the Good Old Opera 11 I won't even try; my Midori is, too, outdated, and even then when I used on OperaForums it had layout issues. So, perhaps Midori would be the only one I could try, but - considering it already had layout issues ...
You're up against a shrinking software availability selection, due to XP's increasing age/obsolesence. Many of the chromium-based and Firefox-derived browsers that are still updated will be deprecating their XP support by June 2018. The few remaining XP-specified candidates that offer some hope and hints of longer-term support and that might be worth installing and trying against this site are:
Advanced Chrome Custom-build (54.15.5320.0, based on Chrome, 3/13/17)
Slimjet 10 family (10.0.13.0, based on chromium 50, 2/8/17)
Otter - still in pre-release (0.9.92 release candidate 2, based on Qt, 11/1/17)
Lunascape (22.214.171.124563, based on 3 engines - but its Trident engine may be problematic, 5/27/17)
Even with these browsers, there are no guarantees regarding how long they will stick with XP-compatible updating, since the work and patching required to keep them secure and current will become ever more complex as chromium and Firefox engines further evolve without their own internal XP provisioning. One thing that will eventually cause problems for any browser on XP will be loss of browsing compatibility with secure SSL websites that are increasingly migrating to eliptical-curve cryptography - XP can't handle it in support of installed browsers.
Thank you for your heads-up, Blackbird.
