    Thanks so much Booli for such a quick response on this.
    So should we change our password?
    I usually remain logged in so I havent noticed it until today.

    No worries. Glad to help.

    After typing the explanation in that post, I sent a note to the moderators with a link to it.

    I would wait to change your password until the SSL cert is fixed, reason being that if you change it now, it can still be captured via a Man-In-the-Middle-attack, so there's not really any security there since without SSL your password is sent as clear text.


    What I WOULD do, is if you use your UU forum password on any other site (bad bad juju), in fact go right now, as in RUN dont walk and change the passwords on all those sites, each to a unique password, because if they get your UU forum password, and you use it elswhere like email, YT, Facebook, then the hackers have access to ALL of your accounts.

    Using a program like LASTPASS, which is a password manager (and works with all browsers and all smartphone/tablet devices) can help you to manage unique passwords across many sites.

    Two weeks after that I sent him an email that was unanswered.

    At that time I decided not to bother him since I figured he was going through a lot with his treatments.

    I too am very worried, and I miss Tommy and hope he is ok and can at least let us know.

    "Tommy - can you hear me?"

    Get well soon and send up a flare if you can...
    A few weeks ago, I saw someone say on Facebook that they were happy to have visited with him recently. Which was the first encouraging sign I'd seen over the past year.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    That’s good news, thanks Jim. I miss having him around too.

    If he's on dialysis, it's incredibly tying and upsetting. I can remember what it was like for my wife until she got a transplant. My wife was able to do hers overnight but it caused problems if we went away at all.

    tommy is such a great guy. i really hope things get better for him


    techie question - downloading vids from youtube for collabs and wotnot - in the past i've used or, more recently, tried to use, various websites for downloading footage for collabs - but now they have stopped allowing downloads, either completely, or stopped allowing downloads with any music o_O or won't allow me to download, here in the UK

    does anyone in the UK have a solution? what are you guys using to download other people's vids from youtube for collabs and the like?

    at the moment i'm getting footage just with a camera, which gives me something to work with for now, but obviously poor quality visuals

    the most recent site i tried was a german site that heino uses and recommended, but it won't let me use it here in the UK

    get it on, bang a gong, get it on

    I used this the other week making the intro vid for my season.

    Obviously sites like this come with their risks so it's not something I'd want to do regularly.

    With collabs, would it not be better to just set up a drop box? Nothing gets lost in YouTube's compression then.

    yes, you're right, drop box is totally the way to go... except when you wanna surprise someone with some kind of add to a vid they've made, and then asking them for the original footage totally gives you and your top-secret plan away!

    what site did you use?

    These are what I have installed in Firefox & use when I want to grab a video.

    This seems to be the best.
