what you would like are macros like "load bin" and "save bin" using a buffer variable

load and save only deal with text files, and besides this can create some problems when used with different encoding formats (ansi utf8 utf16 ...)

I can't get the 'load' macro to run with images

i don't understand what you meant
it's probably not related to HFS. Your dns/domain or your ip may be unreachable for censorship or similar.
You can verify that by trying something that's not hfs.

Hi! Sorry for the slow response.

I've done further analysis and it appears that this is an issue with the Technic Launcher platform, which I use to distribute the files to my users. Entering the IP and DNS manually into a browser (i.e. Google Chrome) and it works like intended for all users that have tried it. I will be getting in contact with Technic shortly. Thanks for your help!

Hi, and welcome to the forum! :)

What dynamic DNS service are you using? (how ends your URL, for example, do you use * I can search for a solution if you comment what DNS service you use. Also, do you know from what country are those ~5% of blocked users? (perhaps there is a block at country level). If you share more details, it would be easier to try to help you.

Hi! I've been getting more than a dozen reports of users not being able to download files from my public Windows 10 HFS server which I'm hosting from my own Wifi network. For the vast majority of users, it works fine, but it seems that for about ~5% of users the URL doesn't lead anywhere (presumably blocked). I've of course port forwarded my router, both on the default port 80 and also on a custom port 8080- none of them yield any different results. My guess is HFS is blocked by these users ISP, which would be very unfortunate. Is there any work around? I'm out of ideas, any help would be much appreciated!

» Suggestion: For those having the UI freeze, just start testing every Alpha and Beta version, one by one, going backwards from latest to older versions, until you find the latest working version that doesn't freeze the UI. This will help Rejetto a lot, since it will help him to find out where the problem was introduced. Without this, it will be very hard to track and fix this issue.

Quote from: Ramblings about Win10 (Off-topic)
Off-topic: Sadly, I can't help on this issue, since I don't use Windows 10 on purpose (and I don't have Win10 installed on any of my PCs). I'm happily living in the past, like 'Doctor Brown in Back from the future', and I really don't like this current present of modern computers at all (were you give away your entirely personal life, since every single action on your PC is sent to a foreign server). Yes, telemetry and Cortana can be disabled, but it's not enough (for example, read this and this). The same goes with mobile phones, so, I only use old trusty phones (old smartphones), but I don't like to depend and rely on them neither. I don't use what I can't control, and I'm totally against Win 8/10 business model, where final users are the product. Because my boring life is only mine, and not to be part of a statistic. And this is not something against some specific country (it's not that I don't trust "X" country but I trust "this" another one, no, it applies to every single country in the world, since IMHO, all data and activities on our devices are only meant to be ours). And these are not only my words, you can clearly read HERE this: "retain your privacy and control over your systems" (because if you don't do it, you are automatically submitting info). For those reading this, here is an updated guide and also a software to tweak Win10 privacy settings (but it's too troublesome for me, and I directly prefer to avoid Win10 at all).
» Note to Mars: please keep the off-topic text small, and don't edit and enlarge my own quoted comment (if someone wants to read it, it can copy and paste to read it). It's small because it not an important comment (but it contains my thoughts about Win10). Thanks!...

the latest changes in the template seem to have killed the "always dark" diff template you kindly offered. Is it still possible to force dark theme with the new default.tpl?

About the UI freezing, it is unfortunately not the only problem.

At least in conjunction with the nginx reverse proxy (for getting TLS support), as long as that one download runs,
1. the UI is frozen (known),
2. I can not browse anymore, be it on the same or other machines,
3. Further downloads cannot be started.

In any case, as long as the download runs, nginx will give "Gateway timeout", as there is no reply from HFS anymore.

I see only two ways to solve that. First would be to make HFS multithreaded, possibly the programming language won't support it (is it still Delphi?). Second would be separating the interface from the engine, and have both intercommunicate over TCP/IP or UDP connections.
As a hacky workaround, I have enabled nginx' caching facilities. It will locally get the requested download from HFS as fast as possible and store it in the cache. Once the caching is complete, HFS is released and the client is served from the cache until the download completes. HFS will still freeze, but not as long as with non-cached transfers. Same for uploads, although it has less benefits.
