If there are still web "devs" depending on Flash®, they should have known, almost since the first iPhone, that it's was not going to be a suitable, much less a "standard" format. [rolleyes2] Same goes for Java, Silverlight, and QuickTime. Proprietary (platform dependent) formats are not where the web 'wanted' to be nor where it is going. ThU32:-)

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat web spinners,

Citing pressure from HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly, Adobe has announced that it will end development and distribution of Flash Player at the end of 2020,

Really?  I thought Adobe promised they would come up with some sort of compiler or interpreter that would convert existing flash applications to open standards?  Have they given up on this?  If so they are breaking a promise and that will make a lot of web context developers very unhappy.

Cheers, Edouard

Dear Bill and WeatherCat web spinners,

Just thought I'd give another shout out to the wonderful folks involved in making the Sea Monkey Template.
I have been playing a bit and will continue to tweak it, but I am quite pleased with my site and the way it show information.
I got the Steel Gauges to play within the template, which I think adds a lot to the look, and it certainly adds a lot of interesting detail.

Congratulations!  You've made some very nice upgrades!  That's why I created this template in the first place.  It is a good point of departure and simple enough that the pages can be tweaked easily.  There are some fine templates out there and even some that have a lot of custom features.  Still, that isn't the same as "growing your own."

Thanks for sharing!  [tup]

Cheers, Edouard

Adobe announces end-of-life plans, will stop distribution in 2020

Citing pressure from HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly, Adobe has announced that it will end development and distribution of Flash Player at the end of 2020, and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to open formats.
...
Apple escalated its position against Flash last year with the launch of macOS Sierra. Adobe's plugin is disabled by default in Sierra's version of Safari, forcing people to manually activate whenever they encounter a webpage asking for it. Java, Silverlight, and even Apple's own QuickTime are treated the same way.
Should have happened 3 years ago, not 3 years in the future. [rolleyes2]

General Computing/Macintosh / Re: macOS 10.12.6 Combo Updater
« Last post by xairbusdriver on Yesterday at 04:57:39 PM »
Don't know if anyone here uses Cocktail. It is created/supported by a dev in Sweden that creates Mac maintenance software. I'll simply quote much of a recent email to justify my reasons for using the Combo updaters:

We would like to remind you that it is always recommended to use a combo update to update macOS.

Many of the problems we are asked to solve can be traced back to a faulty system update or corrupt system files. While it may sound pretty serious there is usually a very simple way to fix it, reinstall the latest Combo update from Apple.

When Apple is testing macOS updates with its developers they are using the Combo update, which is a package that contains every single update from the day your macOS version was released. However, what they deliver to the end users is normally an incremental update which only contains the changes from say 10.12.5 to 10.12.6. Unless you have a clean install there is a chance that it will replace files it shouldn’t or, on the contrary, that it won’t replace files that have become corrupted and are now causing problems.
If it's good enough for Apple developers, it's fine for me. ;)
