The Problem With Forums Today

I remember the good old days when posting to a forum meant typing some text and maybe adding some links and pictures. I remember that it used to be easy. I remember that it was more or less the same on every forum.

So what the **** has gone wrong over the past few years ? 

LOL  !!

Using Poser Without The Adobe Flash Library

 I found this information in a dusty old folder at the back of my hard drive. I remember looking into this when IE upgraded from 9 to 10 (yes, it was that long ago) and caused the Poser library to stop working.

I found Pumeco's "NO MORE FLASH!!!!!!" thread in the Renderosity Poser forums, including this post from bagginsbill. Here's the text of that post, although it's recommended to read the whole thread as that gives more context:
I think I found the setting - it was introduced in Poser 10 and then rescinded - probably because it doesn't work right somehow.

Exit Poser if it's running.

Find your poser.ini - the path may differ for you - mine is in

c:/Users/<YourUserNameHere>/AppData/Roaming/Poser Pro/10

In your poser.ini look for


and change the 0 to a 1.

In Poser 10, this is (I think) all you would do. For Pro 2014, you'd need to choose the embedded library as well with this line:


That was bagginsbill's work-around to stop Poser using the Flash library, and was confirmed by pumeco for Poser 10). Here's a screenshot (copied from that post/thread) showing the non-flash Poser library.

I never actually tried using this myself - I simply used the IE-update-blocker. (I should really add links to threads about that, but I can't find them at the moment)

What, Genuine Freebies At DAZ Again?

A dozen older items, mainly generation 3/4 stuff, and items that have been genuine freebies in the past...

Not "free if you purchase XYZ product that we're pushing".
Not "free if you're a paid-up member of the Platinum Club".
Just free as in you get it without parting with any cash- you know, "free"!

And apparently it's going to be 'every week'...

I only spotted this because I was intrigued when I saw that DAZ have started advertising at ShareCG  (the 'Free 3D Models Every Week' ad, not the '$5 off DAZ originals' one).
I wondered how they were going to redefine the word 'free' to try and drag in the ShareCG users.
So I was most surprised (and delighted) to discover that some bright spark at new DAZ has actually looked up the word "free" in a dictionary at last!

(Yes, I know that there've been a few genuine freebies at DAZ over the past year - I'm still subscribed to the "Limited Time Freebie Email Message Alert" thread in the Freepozitory thread here which is still a good lead on genuine freebies, and picked up a few via that)
