Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

Following on from my previous post re To do lists, Calendars etc.. The problem with feature-rich‘home user’ applications like Noto where you have to pay is this. You get used to using them, store a great deal of information in them, and then wake up one day to find that the software developer has lost […]

Personally, I like ‘clean’ and simplicity, and free is good if I can get it, Never assume that best is the most expensive, because best is very subjective. Always try free stuff first. You may find that it suits your purposes to a tee. My choice.. Back in 1992, I picked up on a small […]

Diskeeper 2011–Restore point update..

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

Just a quickie. It appears that Diskeeper 2011 doesn’t trash restore points on my computer as the 2010 version was doing. Also, it is even less noticeable in operation that 2010 was. Way to go, Diskeeper. Well done.. Diskeeper 2011 is now available to all, btw.. https://www.diskeeper.com/

It was the usual cold Ontario kind of day, snow on the ground, freezing rain, sub-zero temperatures, the kind of day where one wraps up warm. I was in the elevator, en route to the Jeep in the underground parking lot. The elevator stopped on the forth floor, and a person alighted, full weather gear […]

Great news for all Microsoft ‘shills’, and I guess that I am in that fold. We are talking about the 32-bit version, btw, the one that is the default regardless of Windows 7 bit version. Microsoft used the Chakra JIT in IE9 32-bit because it should be the version of choice presently. Adobe Flash, Java […]

.. is still free and now works with Windows 7 as well as Vista. This is what it looks like..   If you like tweaking, you have just got to go for this, but remember to tweak bits one at a time. Make too many changes and you may just forget what you have done. […]

More how on earth do you get there? I’ll give you the link because my typing is slow. One hundred ways to get there, wherever ‘there’ might be.. http://distrowatch.com/ and watch out because some of them are cul-de-sacs and others have yet to be properly surfaced. Ubuntu is top of the list, but Linux purists […]

Linux trolls still on the defensive

If Ubuntu Linux was as good as they say it is, there would be one article written purely about Ubuntu, but there never is. Always a reference to to Microsoft Windows. This is the latest. Oh my God! There are security holes in Ubuntu 10.04! The sky is falling! Bill Gates is the maker of […]

MS Answers 2 – a disaster in progress

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

If MS Answers mk1 was broken, that term has been taken to new levels by MS Answers mk2. I have no idea what server setup Microsoft is using or did use, but one thing is for sure, something is not right. There are times when it is very fast, and the rest of the time […]
