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

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

Thanks

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, …

A colleagues whatapps history was completely deleted from my iPhone.  A couple of weeks back, I went to text my associate and when opening the chat I noticed that the entire history was deleted; it was empty, only the end-to-end encryption was displayed on the top.  Can someone tell me what happened and if I can recover it.

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.

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

Emails from my mandrill smtp server to myself are being rejected as a soft bounce.  How can I resolve this?  I rely on these emails for error messages from my websites and other things.  I can get email at this account but not if it was sent from my website using my smtp (mandrill) server.  Any help would be much appreciated!  Note that the email account is hosted at GoDaddy but I can't find a setting there to fix that.

Trying to create a nightly backup restore of a SQL database. The first time I run it works fine. But when I try and run it again. I get the following error message:

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?

My objective is to find a collaborative meeting space where people can communicate with other members around an agreed upon topic without having to adhere to a particular time. Despite this flexible structure, members should still be able to 'propose' a new meeting time and new discussion topics as-needed.

I have begun the sheet here with this purpose in mind and will add to it as more information comes in over time.

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?

Thanks

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 have no access to mail server, so I am looking for some solution client side.
Most email users are using Outlook 2007.
Other people are using webmail (zimbra).
How can I do this?
Thank you very much!

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.
