Caching IMG tags - About

I've noticed that if I use the [IMG] tag, the forum seems to cache the image rather than point to and load the external image. Is this intentional? Question pertains to using dynamic images that periodically update, linked to an external source.

Yes, this is intentional. We are required to proxy images so that they can all be loaded over https (as some providers do not support https), and caching images allows us to efficiently serve images without causing undue loading or DoS potential.
There are also other benefits such as optimizing the image (we had some images loading that were 10+ megs in size!) and ensuring that malware isn't loaded via images. We had several cases where someone purchased a domain that used to host images, and then begin serving malware, which was loaded from XDA via old linked images.

can you verify whether this is spyware malware free???
i'd like to know as well! seems too good to be true...
The screenshot doesn't really make sense, why are there two "addons" menus, and why is there another stop button on top of the green arrow, in addition to the other stop button? I'm running it through (which scans it with like 30 brands of antivirus software), so we'll soon see.
EDIT: AVG and Clamwin report nothing on the unzipped file, and says only one of its 36 antiviruses (antiviri?) reported anything suspicious. It seems to be safe.
Jdownloader is virus free, but it requires Java to run.
The original website of the developers:
I would recommend Cryptload instead, in my eyes it is much better:
Btw, UNLIMITED is too good to be true, it simply reconnects your router everytime you completed a download.
It's virus free. I've been using this for quite some time know and it works great. I don't need to wait to enter those captcha. Jdownloader does everything even extract those zipped files that you downloaded even if they have password. Of course you have to enter those pass that frequently use. A must soft to all downloaders there.
Just get the file here for a sure virus free download. And also it constantly upgrade itself.
JDownloader is open source, platform independent and written completely in Java. It simplifies downloading files from One-Click-Hosters like or - not only for users with a premium account but also for users who don't pay. It offers downloading in multiple paralell streams, captcha recognition, automatical file extraction and much more. Of course, JDownloader is absolutely free of charge. Additionally, many “link encryption” sites are supported - so you just paste the “encrypted” links and JD does the rest. JDownloader can import CCF, RSDF and the new DLC files.
Platform independent. (Windows, Linux, Mac, ..)
Runs on Java 1.5 or higher
Complete Open-Source (GPL)
24-hour support
Download several files parellel
Download with multiple connections
JD has an own powerful OCR module (JAntiCaptcha)
Decrypt RSDF, CCF and DLC Containerfiles
Decryptplugins for many services. e.g., UCMS, WordPress, RLSLog….
Youtube, Vimeo, clipfish video and Mp3 Download
Automatic extractor (including password list search) (Rar archives)
Theme Support
About 110 hoster and over 300 decrypt plug-ins
Reconnect with JDLiveHeaderScripts: (1400 router supported)
Integrated package manager for additional modules (eg. Webinterface, Shutdown)
this software is very router-centric. I have a linksys that's been modified with a 3rd party firmware and of course, mine isn't supported. if you're one of those people with a "I Void Warranties" shirt, this may not work for you. besides, I dunno that I want my router reconnecting after every file.
On my job we have security cameras on the web and more things like three servers and other... and when the IP change beacause of a program like P2P or other... all the web services goes down.
I think its just for home.


I tried searching (didn't find anything), and maybe its over a lot of general users heads, but... since there are appear to be issues with hosting, download speeds, etc... wouldn't it make sense for people to torrent some of the ROM/RADIO/PATCH/ETC. releases? (Especially in the first 24 hours)
If the releases were over 1GB then I would agree, but as it is now using free hosting (don't forget people, you can dump files into your Dropbox "Public" folder and then copy the link to provide a direct download to files... I've done this with a few large files and haven't received any complaints or warnings from the Dropbox folks and of course there are other sites like 4shared/mediafile/etc) seems to be working out just fine. Although I have been busy with work and other projects so maybe there is a crisis I am unaware of. I am personally very pro-BT, but only when a lot of data needs to be pushed out or data needs to be pushed out to a lot of sources (I created a tiny [under 100kB compiled =)] BT program for use in updating/making backups of MySQL databases across 45 servers in 8 different geological locations... it has sped things up 10x at the very least).

Has anyone successfully relocated the Metadata folder with ROOT?

I've seen quite a few posts on this and other forums claiming that with root one could move the metadata folder off of the Shield's internal memory using symlinks. I'm wondering if anyone has successfully done this and if they wouldn't mind outlining the procedure, as I've had mixed results. While I was, in fact, able to relocate the Plug-ins folder using symlinks, the same procedure failed for the metadata folder. I commented on this in another post so I'll paste that story here:
"...I tried doing this a couple of months ago and while I was able to successfully symlink the Plug-ins folder, thus allowing installation of plug-ins, the Metadata was less successful:
This was a couple of months ago so I can't remember exactly what happened, however, after creating the symlink and migrating the metadata to my external storage, the Plex app would no longer download posters or wallpapers. From what I remember, though, it would still download text information such as Titles, Plots, etc... I thought this was extremely bizarre behavior at the time. At first, it seemed that the data migrated successfully, but then new movies wouldn't have any artwork, so I was under the impression that the plex server app was refusing to write to the new folder. However, and this is where my memory is fuzzy, it seemed that Text info was still downloading (Title, plot, year, etc...). Also, the plex server app had no trouble writing to the Symlinked Plug-ins folder, so I don't understand why it couldn't do the same with the metadata (or at least the picture based metadata.)
I also remember trying to manually download artwork via the web interface but, let's say you were trying to manually update a poster for a movie, where you would normally see a grid of different posters to chose from, it was all just a bunch of blank boxes.
So to summarize, while symlinking does seem to work for Plug-ins, it doesn't actually appear to be a solution for migrating metadata off of the internal storage. If you have successfully done this and wouldn't mind outlining the steps you followed, that would certainly be extremely helpful to many users here. I've scoured this forum, the Nvidia forum, as well as XDA and Google and have yet to come across someone who has successfully migrated the metadata folder, only the Plug-ins folder."
If anyone has actually successfully done this and could clear up the procedure that would be a great help, as this question comes up often and people are always given the same answer: that with symlinks and root it is possible. It's my experience that it isn't however and it would be best to avoid spreading misinformation on this topic if that is, in fact, the case. (not just for the sake of current Shield owners but potential buyers as well.)

[Q] android postscript viewer?

I've looked around and couldn't find a viewer for postscript files. Is there anything around?
ghostscript is available under GPL, so I figure it should be possible to create something. Is there some legal/licensing obstacle I'm not aware of? Is there a technological obstacle?
This was asked time ago in the asus transformer forum, with no conclusion: . As noted there, there is at least one service that sends the file to a server for conversion to pdf. Apart from the inefficiency and requirement for network connectivity, this also results in a pixellated version of the files (If there had been an option to setvery high resolution, the cost would be huge files). Normally, postscript images allow arbitrary scaling.

What do you think an Android APK database be like?

Seeing how at times user scramble from site to site to find a much needed or latest APK file I was thinking on developing a website, where Android users can submit variety of Android APK files, from System apks to applications (file size is limited to 25mb to prevent piracy of paid Play applications)
The database in part would act like an Archive containing different versions for different applications. Allowing users to download whatever APK file they may be looking for, from older builds to the newest KitKat rips. I have mirrored one single APK file here, and based on my old project statistic the file has already been downloaded 1677 times (and counting), as of this this APK database would allow 3rd party mirrors (MediaFire, Mega, Dev-Host, Box, Dropbox, Yandex.Disk and Google Disk) along with internal filesystem build on top of either RackSpace Cloud Files or Amazon S3 or even Google AppEngine Storage
The thing is what information do you think should be stored along the APK files for user and developer convenience? I would also like to hear some feature suggestion that would be useful to everyone.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Here is a quick Prototype UI/UX I been working for past day while in bed sick
Keeping the data limit to 25mb will do little to prevent piracy. There is a plethora of paid apps under that size. Unless there is strong, continuous oversight, it won't work.

Yes I did consider that. Thus all uploads would require mod/admin approval. Otherwise other possibility was allowing banned applications to be available like CyanogenMod Installer. This was a purely concept of a rather useful idea if it can be turned into more pros vs cons.
