whats the best free hosting site if I want to host a small imgboard?

2 Name: Anonymous : 2015-01-21 23:27 ID:Heaven [Del]

for a small one, just host it yourself. most small boards don't get more than 2-3 unique visitors in a month if you don't count spambots.

The Unarchiver, part 2 (399)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-31 12:54 ID:EvuKrlQD [Del]

As the previous thread filled up, here is part 2 of the The Unarchiver thread.

It is much better to post bugs on the bug tracker, rather than in this thread! Anything posted on the bug tracker has much less chance of being forgotten by me!

So, post bugs here: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

Also, remember that if you post a bug about a file that is not work, you must also post the file itself, or else there is nothing I can do about it!

390 Name: Emilio : 2014-11-20 08:17 ID:/WnZFz5n [Del]

And I can not select further individually types except the default.

Hello.. Why can't I drag and drop folders that contain archives to The Unarchiver? I know that a folder itself isn't considered an "archive" but shouldn't it be able to just LOOK inside the folder, and then do it's task?

this software is NEAR perfect... NEAR

plz help me out here.. thanks

Apple has removed this feature from apps in the App Store. You will have to get the legacy version to use it.

The App works perfectly fine. But it will be nice if you can update the UI and icon set to match with OS X Yosemite. Many thanks to developers.

396 Name: Jan : 2014-11-25 23:32 ID:XE8TNx6w [Del]

What I did to solve the selection problem, was to go to http://unarchiver.c3.cx/unarchiver and download the not App Store version.
If you run that one, you can select all the formats.
After selecting and closing the program, I threw the downloaded version in the trash, and the already installed App Store one had all the formats selected.

In short :
Doenload the standalone one, use that to select all the formats and throw it away after that.

397 Name: Masa : 2014-12-01 09:35 ID:aC6LaYRC [Del]

I got strange things with The Unarchiver.

The apps works perfectlly except with iWork files. If I unzip .zip files including iWork files such as .pages .numbers .key which were zipped with OS X built in Compress, iWork cannot open the unzipped files.

iWork shows '"xxxxx.pages" can't be opened' error.

This is very strange. This happens always and only with iWork files on my Mac.

Does this happen to anybody?

Mac OS X screen savers (363)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-06-16 19:23 ID:/DCn4yVC [Del]

Not to be confused with the Mac OS X widgets thread, this is the Mac OS X screen savers thread (this one's even more useless!).

So, way back in the day, I made some screen savers for the Amiga named "LotsaBlankers". Later on, I ported some of them to Windows, and created some new ones, but I never managed to make a stable and functional enough screen saver under Windows that I'd feel like releasing it. But now that I've got Mac OS X, I've started porting some of this old code over, since making screen savers for OS X is pretty easy and fun. First one I've got running is this one:


It's based on the work presented on this site, http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/, and it is liable to BLOW YOUR MIND, MAAAAN. I've been too lazy to figure out how to make a preferences GUI for it yet, so even though the code supports all the possible different transformations of the image (Some listed here: http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/index.php?menu=im&sub=escher), you can't actually pick which one you want yet.

Post too long. Click to view the whole post or the thread page.

Hmm, I'll have to look into it once I get Mavericks.

356 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2013-11-09 17:26 ID:/tup2R8c [Del]

All right, I managed to find a workaround for the new silly behaviours in Mavericks. It's not perfect, though, the screen will quickly flash black before the screensaver activates. Unfortunately, there appears to be no way around this other than if Apple fixes Mavericks.

So there are new versions of LotsaWater and LotsaSnow, and while LotsaEscher had no issues with this, I fixed some old bugs there too so there's a new version of that too:

multi-monitor has a problem,when I use custom function , if one's screen resolution is not the same as the other one, the side of the big one will display black colour.
So , could we set two pictures for each other for different resolution?
My osx ver is 10.9

359 Name: Painted Turtle : 2013-11-12 16:22 ID:HOHww/P0 [Del]

Please update the screen savers pages with the minimum requirements for each release. (OS versions and Intel vs PPC)

I volunteer to service donated Macs for benevolent causes around the world and here at home. We often get older units, so I want to know which version I can install where.


360 Name: Vince357 : 2013-12-01 23:33 ID:txEYAhk/ [Del]

As tangoldduck said, under OSX 10.9, there is a prob on multi-monitor macs: my iMac (resolution 2560x1440) runs lotawater as expected, but the second monitor (1440x900) doesn't.
But, when I just preview the screensaver, both monitors display separated monitors screenshots as expected.
When the app is auto launched, problem occurs.
Of course, it only happens when the 'desktop snapshot' is seleceted.

LotsaWater has problems with multiple monitors and Mavericks 10.9.1. One monitor is normal, the other is black. Needs separate screenshot for each monitor. My monitor resolutions are 1650x1080 normal & 1280x1024 black.

The Archive Browser (155)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-03-20 18:00 ID:rFsOye/G [Del]

So, along with the release of The Unarchiver 3.0 comes another new things: The Archive Browser. This is the often-requested version that lets you browse archives and preview their contents before extracting. However, since this is not a program that I personally need, this one will actually cost a few dollars. Buy it if this is what you really need, or buy it if you want to support the development of The Unarchiver!


For now, bug reports and feature requests can go on the The Unarchiver bug tracker:


It is much better to post them there than in this thread, because I tend to forget things that are not on the bug tracker.

Hi, I have just purchased the 'The Archive Browser' app from AppStore for my OS X Yosemite.

When I click on the app preference, I cannot select the file association even I click the "select all" or "deselect all" the association settings do not change.

How can I solve this?

147 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2014-10-19 01:30 ID:hTSFHVVr [Del]


You can't. Apple has permanently disabled this feature in the App Store. You either have to do it by hand in The Finder using Get Info, or use the non-App Store version.

Xee, part 2 (571)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2009-07-22 10:34 ID:J9qvJKxH [Del]

This thread is for questions and discussion about Xee. Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1122405906/

There is also a bug tracker for Xee here: http://code.google.com/p/xee/issues/list

If you have a bug to report, it is better to post it on the bug tracker if you can, so it will not be forgotten.

564 Name: desioner : 2014-11-29 23:32 ID:LmkmUy/c [Del]

I was just testing the app after purchasing it and I noticed that it doesn't save passwords that are used to view password protected archives. Is it possible to implement the ability to save passwords for selected archives? Rather than entering the password every time I view it. Thanks for the good app thus far.

Running Xee 3.4 on Yosemite on Mac mini. Opening any images (JPEG/GIF) displays a blank Xee window of the default background colour. Zoom level 1:1, discrete GPU usage enabled/disabled.

566 Name: Paul : 2014-12-15 19:22 ID:LIVajujj [Del]

Something is broken, whenever I open a jpg with xee, after a few seconds the image tints towards blue, like if I played with the hue.

I'm using a 15" macbook pro, with osx yosemite 10.10
Anyone else with this problem?

567 Name: VHarris : 2014-12-16 20:49 ID:kc7XmVZD [Del]

in Xee I use <ctrl> <2> to move files from one directory to another directory that are both located on an external 4GB Western Digital NTFS hard drive. I am using tuxera which allows me to read and write to the NTFS drive.

When I press the hotkeys to move one file, I have to wait until the file is moved before pressing the hotkeys again to move another file. If I press the hotkeys too soon, Xee looses its place in processing the files and so goes all the way to the last file in the directory and displays that file.

The <command> [ --> ] shortcut does not have the same problem. Is there a way to fix Xee so that if I press the Move shortcut keys too soon, Xee stays in place rather than scrolling to the last file?

568 Name: Anonymous : 2014-12-17 06:30 ID:fKSWrUFU [Del]

Hey, can you add an option to automatically quit Xee if no windows are open? Assuming there were any windows open upon launch.

This is a great feature of LilyView.

Anyway, I installed xee from brew and was hoping it'd have command line functionality, like feh on linux. xee, Xee, or open -a Xee didn't do anything for me. Know any great lightweight apps that work like feh?

The Wakaba and Kareha support thread, part 3 (488)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-01-07 09:57 ID:eLRTX7Vk [Del]

This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous two threads:

Also check the documentation: http://wakaba.c3.cx/docs/docs.html

There is also a setup guide by Anon: http://wiki.iiichan.net/index.php?title=Wakaba_and_Kareha_Setup_Guide

Questions about "500 Internal Server Errors" go in this thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1109033191/

479 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-21 14:19 ID:5xCzuG2s [Del]

Say I have a persistent version of Kareha. Would caching the log in an array and creating a hash of references to each row in the log with MD5 hashes or IP addresses as keys be an easy to squeeze more performance out of Kareha? If I understand correctly, the hash values shouldn't take up too much extra memory since they're refs, and the array itself shouldn't be any bigger than it would be in plain CGI Kareha. Is there anything I'm missing or misunderstanding?

480 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-26 11:47 ID:K2mFT8RG [Del]

I have latest version of kareha installed and it takes 2 clicks of the preview button to initiate preview, and in chrome and Safari the default markup is blank with an " undefined " under it until you pick one

481 Name: Anonymous : 2014-09-26 13:24 ID:Heaven [Del]

Not sure about the 2 clicks thing but the undefined thing is fixed in https://github.com/marlencrabapple/kareha-psgi/commit/40149edc3f1a7cb9a9f501311b4fe703df415301. Should work in vanilla Kareha verbatim.

Hello. I am deep in trying to run Kareha on an android device. But I am in over my head. First problem is I don't know perl. Second problem is I don't know how to get imagemagick working for android.

So I guess my last recourse is to ask... is anyone willing to try to get this working? I am trying to add on to the Piratebox port for android, which is missing the image-board feature (which on linux is added using kareha).

I got perl working, I think I found an android port of imagemacick, and I think I know how to get the CGI side of things working with the web server piratebox uses...

Anyone interested in helping?

484 Name: Anonymous : 2014-11-19 09:03 ID:dVpgAmN5 [Del]

Interesting idea. I don't know anything about piratebox, but I'm sure any combination busybox and a light web server with CGI support could handle this. Even better, if you can get Perl and cpanminus installed, you can run everything without the need for an outside web server, which is something that I find a lot easier in 2014. I might try it on an old Android phone I have laying around this weekend. I'll let you know what works best on my end.

485 Name: Anonymous : 2014-11-22 19:35 ID:Heaven [Del]

Use touch zooming, or rebind the keys to use the fine zoom commands instead.

380 Name: James : 2014-11-19 05:56 ID:MSbH/NqR [Del]

How do you use multigestures to rotate? The main reason I bought Xee was because I was hoping that I could use gestures to partially rotate an image along the 360 degree axis (as opposed to only by 90 degree increments). Is this possible?
