Chat / IM

Instant messaging (IM) is a type of online chat that offers real-time text transmission over the Internet. A LAN messenger operates in a similar way over a local area network. More advanced instant messaging can add file transfer, clickable hyperlinks, Voice over IP, or video chat. Non-IM types of chat include multicast transmission, usually referred to as "chat rooms". Depending on the IM protocol, the technical architecture can be peer-to-peer (direct point-to-point transmission) or client-server (a central server retransmits messages from the sender to the communication device).

Hi
If I make my game server in Java, with TCP/IP HELO, START and in-game messages, game runs in browser, javascript to my server,
what can I expect as the worst from the unavoidable hackers and miscreants? Floods..
DSS attacks. Are they detectable? Stoppable? Google suggested they are stoppable. I will be using a Godaddy professional private server.
Floods will be a certainty if my game escalates. It would  suck, because there will be prizes in contention.
Do Blizzard and Microsoft weed these out? Is this how the old disconnect-hacks worked?

Thanks

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

Is there a way to broadcast a personal message to a set of whatsapp contacts without setting up a group and therefore allowing people to see other's responses.  This might be useful for example to notify contacts of a family event.

I am trying to implement the use of the DatePicker  within a Grid
in my c# application.

There are 2 fields in the grid with date values and the script for selection into
the date fields is shown below. The script works but i get some extra system
message as part of the selected date

 switch(dgvDetailsTable.Columns[e.ColumnIndex].Name)
            {
                case "dgvStartDate":
                    _Rectangle = dgvDetailsTable.GetCellDisplayRectangle(e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex, true);
                    dtp.Size = new Size(_Rectangle.Width, _Rectangle.Height);
                    dtp.Location = new Point(_Rectangle.X, _Rectangle.Y);
                    dtp.Visible = true;
                    break;
                case "dgvEndDate":
                    _Rectangle = dgvDetailsTable.GetCellDisplayRectangle(e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex, true);
                    dtp.Size = new Size(_Rectangle.Width, _Rectangle.Height);
                    dtp.Location = new Point(_Rectangle.X, _Rectangle.Y);
                    dtp.Visible = true;
                    break;

            }



See  attached screen for some system messages coming before the date

DatePicker  with a prefix in the actual date
DatePicker  with a prefix in the actual date debugged
I just want the date and not the systems messages prefixing it how can i remove the
unwanted messages

I have a small website that only will
get about 5 customer CHATS per day.
  ** running WordPress
  ** hosted on my own LINUX box at my home
  ** also running WooCommerce at some point

What "website chat software" do you recommend so I can have a
POPUP appear the minute a potential customer visits the homepage,
displaying "Away Now, Leave a Message" if I mark the system as OFF-LINE ?
  ** cost under $500/yr or $2,000 one-time

Hi...I'm running an old Oracle 8i datbase on a Windows machine. I had successfully implemented Oracle email using UTL_SMTP years at least 5 years ago. Everything has been running smoothly until today.

I was trying to fix an error I was getting in a new schema with one of my existing procedures and based on something I read on the Internet (not from you folks), I ran (or tried to) 2 scripts. initjvm.sql followed by initplsj.sql...ran them in the SYS schema. The first one was taking what seemed like a very long time so I think I prematurely closed the SQL Plus window. WHen I ran the initplsj.sql, I got a number of error messages like this:

call dbms_java.set_output(10000)
*
 ORA-06576: not a valid function or procedure name
 call dbms_java.loadjava('-resolve
 plsql/jlib/plsql.jar')
 
ORA-06576: not a valid function or procedure name


After this, the email procedures that HAD been working for years stopped working. When they get called now from the website I get this:

ORA-29540: class oracle/plsql/net/TCPConnection does not exist
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_TCP", line 533
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_TCP", line 199
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_SMTP", line 99
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_SMTP", line 121
ORA-06512: at "WEBEXAM_APP.SEC", line 1851
ORA-06512: at line 10

...where webexam_app.sec is the procedure involved in generating an email.

I reinstalled the Oracle packages UTL_TCP and UTL_SMTP installed within SYS....didn't help. I then re-ran initjvm.sql, …

Hi everybody.
A client wants I implement a simple chat in order to get in touch with the visitors of his website. So I don't need to build a chat room but a one-to-one chat between the website owner and the website visitor. I'd need some guidance about hot to do it using jQuery and Php. I have found some script around the web, but, for instance, I don't understand how to manage the website owner side: It can happen that many visitors want to chat at the same moment and I can't guess how I have to manage this.

Can you give me some idea, suggestions and help?

Thank you so much

I have been asked to look at an Android phone where the text messages were deleted and see if I can get them back. The phone has not been used since the messages were deleted.
I see there are tools for purchase but was wondering if anyone has any experience with any free tools? I have seen some older questions like this here on EE but they were either iPhone or too old.

Starting with Angular 5

Learn the essential features and functions of the popular JavaScript framework for building mobile, desktop and web applications.

This is the same problem as posted earlier. The suggested Microsoft "Database is in an inconsistent state" fix has not solved this problem.

I have a client that uses my Access 2002 applications using 2002 runtime 5 users split database. They, independently, decided to create another stand alone Access 16 database linking to the same back end data (on server) All worked for years now they are having Disc or network error messages, crashes and error text in form text and number fields.

We are currently migrating all our DBs to Access 16. In the mean time the questions:
1. Is the linking of another version of Access to the BE likely to cause this issue
2. Will updating our application to the same version have any effect.
3. Is it more likely to be a data corruption problem. I noticed when compacting and repairing the BE Data that it took a very long time over 3 minutes. (using their native Access 16) File size  369,000 kb

Hello, I need help finding a simple standalone chat server solution that I can install to a Windows webserver.  I don't want to use any cloud stuff, no trialware, nothing I must register.  I am okay with a "powered by link". Opensource would be ideal.  Nothing with a ton of bells and whistles that track user behavior an monitor, I am against that kind of thing.

Just a basic chat box that pops up when a visitor arrives, and if an admin is also logged on the user and site admin can connect, if not it displays a leave a message type thing.  The end user should be able to remain anonymous or just use any alias to begin a chat. I don't need or want it to keep any chat records. The user should not have to install anything either.      

If it matters, some services I got running are mysql and apache for windows.

Any suggestions?

iOS 12.1.2. This AM when I attempted to attach a YouTube link to a message via the iMessage app--nothing happened. That is, YouTube wouldn't load in messages, though I can open it via the "basic" screen icon, and download links from vids I open there into messages.

Yes, I closed and reopend the Messages app. Yes, I rebooted the phone. Yes, all other message apps work.

Thoughts?

Exchange 2010 Transport Rule - I am trying to create a rule for all incoming messages from Outside the organization AND there is any attachment it prepends a disclaimer to the email.  

Apply rule to messages
from users that are 'Outside the organizations'
     and when the size of any attachment is greater than or equal to '0 B (0bytes)'

'prepend''<p style="font-size:.9em; line-height:1em; font-family: 'Cambria','times roman',serif; background-color:khaki; border:1px solid brown;">
<span style="font-weight:bold; color:red;">CAUTION:</span> This email originated from outside of the organization. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe. </p>

It is adding the disclaimer to all messages from outside users.   I am only wanting the disclaimer on messages from outside with attachments?

Thanks

I get very regular text messages from people that I have yet to speak with.

I need to develop a way to have a single record row show up on a web page that is only visible to me for now on a websitepage/status. The resulting list should be sorted by the date/time of the message and the number of the party that texted.

Suggestions on how to accomplish this are greatly appreciated.

There service provider (unfortunately) is GoDaddy (Cpanel). He says that a lot of his emails don't get to the recipient. He gets no bounce messages. He says the recipients have checked their junk mail folder. How do you trace a problem like this?

Our company uses O365 for all employees. One app we use within it is Skype for Business. We would like to get a report showing how many individual messages a given user sends from Skype. The MS reports only seem to provide session counts. I know in the conversation history you can see the messages sent/received, but to manually scroll through Inboxes and count these is not practical. Are there any PS scripts for this?

Thanks for the assistance in advance!

I have an Access 2016 application which passes Message Text to an Outlook 2016 Email MESSAGE.

When that happens, Outlook opens (If it was not already open).  The user then clicks on "SEND" and the message goes into the Outbox and STAYS THERE!

The user then has to open the Outbox and Click "Send All" otherwise the massage is never sent.

IS THIS NORMAL?  In earlier versions of Outlook, the messages in the Outbox went out almost immediately.  Does Outlook 2016 have a problem?  Is there something we should do?

Thanks,
