In Topic: "W32.Adware.Gen" in e-Sword EXE?

12 December 2018 - 12:34 PM

Katoog is correct. I've run into this several times before when releasing a new exe file (module installer, various utilities, etc.) Certain anti-virus/anti-malware are so aggressive, they flag an unknown (or unpopular) exe file. Since e-Sword is so widely used, this false positive will disappear as the anti-virus software sees more of this new version. (Interestingly, some of these anti-virus/anti-malware programs "phone home" quite a bit of information about you and your PC.) 

 

I don't care for programs that resort to this type of "detection" because they acknowledge they apparently cannot detect malware. Thus, they resort to simply comparing any program against their database of known programs, and then flagging any new program. This is less about malware detection and more about application whitelisting.

 

I once had a guy throw such a tantrum about the Module Installer being flagged as malware by one of the anti-malware programs, I went to the anti-malware's website and submitted a report for it being a false positive. They updated their software and the guy was happy. 

 

In web root's case, here's the link to submit a false positive report: https://mysupport.we...URCE=ENTERPRISE

Since the remaining portion of this topic was splitting into a KJV debate, I split off the topic here to separate the resolution of the technical issue with translation opinions. All of the translation debate was moved here: http://www.biblesupp...582-kjv-debate/


In Topic: e-Sword 11.2.2 & Windows 10 problem (blurry font; DPI issue)

29 November 2018 - 04:59 PM

Hello,

 

Your account was just created a day or two ago. So, you wouldn't have an unanswered question from years ago, at least not on this forum under your current username.

 

I removed a few of your comments in your original post. Let's try not to make all caps derogatory comments about a free software product and its author. Let's also remember that e-Sword for the PC is free to use and no one owes us anything, outside of perhaps troubleshooting paid modules. Let's try to keep things respectful, please.

 

Thanks,

Josh

I am looking for the original pulpit commentary before it was changed to the new format/edited 


In Topic: A Tribute to My Friend, Brent Hildebrand

Hi,

 

The development of ToolTip will not continue without Brent, at least not in its current form. Brent wrote ToolTip in a niche language called APL. While the language is very powerful, it's also very different than modern programming languages because of it's usage of symbols. The language was first a mathematical notation and the programmatic implementation uses matrix algebra. It's just a very different way of thinking and problem solving.

Prayers going up for Brent and his family. Time like these can be taxing for everyone effected by such situations I lost my father 18 years ago to cancer it was very ruff seams like yesterday and not a day goes by that he is not with me, my thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. Also, I hate to be the one who ask and forgive me if this has been asked somewhere else but if something happens to Brent or even Rick for that matter what happens to the e-Sword community? Have steps been taken to make sure that the community can still thrive and exist beyond the mortal lives of it's original authors? As it stands Tooltip is the only way I know of to create content for e-Sword what will happen when Brent can't no longer keep it going? will it just cease to exist or become unmaintained? I ask because it would be such a shame for all the hard work that these folks have put in to suddenly just go away one day. Has anyone ever asked this question? There are software escrow entities that source code can be deposited with so that if something happens to the founders or authors the project can continue as a community effort. just curious, I in a personal capacity like many others have invested a lot of money, time and in some cases efforts to using e-sword and tooltip in all things spiritual and would not relish it's end in any capacity.
