Re: video conferencing

I was very upset to learn that MS Teams cannot be uninstalled. It really is a typical MS product - one that hogs the computer.

I have discovered that it can be disabled via the task manager startup tab.

Re: NAS drive as a mapped drive for BRules

Business Rules, like all programming languages that I know of, relies on OS routines for low level network support. Buffalo has been around for at least 10 years, so I would be very surprised to hear of any issues. If you do I will pursue it with Microsoft. Keep in mind that BR is written in C++ and...

video conferencing

I was surprised to see that Zoom has so many security problems. Apparently even after you uninstall it it leaves behind a back door that hackers can use to spy upon you. And Zoom secretly sends information about you to Facebook even if you don't have a Facebook account. Here is an article that cover...

Re: 2020 BRG Conference Cancelled

If anyone has lost money by registering at this year's conference ( air fare etc. ), and cannot get their money refunded, I will give them a credit for that amount toward future purchases from Business Rules Corp. No one should lose money from such a turn of events because they are loyal to Business...

Re: 5.15-2.55-2.6

Yes John. You stated it correctly. All programming languages that work with floating point numbers have the same problem. By using scientific notation internally the binary fractions used in floating point math do not precisely match decimal fractions. Floating point arithmetic necessarily and speci...

Re: e

If you really don't ever want BR to overwrite your source programs, then you might consider removing the EDITOR statement from your BRconfig.sys file. I think the best way for us to change BR to address this issue is to support ALIAS commands. We are not adding features to 4.3, but we will put ALIAS...

secure email

Anyone using secure (PGP encrypted email)?

I am trying to use it, but there is a glitch in my setup and I haven't been able to figure it out.

In essence I'm trying to send myself an encrypted email form one account to another.

Re: Screenio Listview Filterlist question

The wiki indicates that /RGB:T indicates a transparent background. I haven't tested that recently: http://brwiki2.brulescorp.com/index.php?title=Attribute_(Screen) Possibly that could be used to red flag something by highlighting it's background instead of setting the font itself to red, and then us...
