      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

With WhenU Save the privacy, security and performance of your computer is assured.

They sound quite ethical, don't they?

Hmm.

Was surprised to hear this about e-merge (unless WinAce had changed hands). Though they have been commercial from the start, they seemed ethical...

 

When I followed the winace link, the page wouldn't load. So I started TCPview and it shows a syn sent to nt6.netdiscounter.de, which is never seemingly acknowledged. Winace or netdiscounter do not appear in my HOSTS file, so I guess its on their side (?).

 

Thanks tho, jedi: very interesting and nice catch.

 

I forgot to add that Winace did have a free library for use as a plugin to unpack .ace archives, but probably (?) won't work with 7-zip (which is about the same performance in native format as ace).
