I agree with crosseyedlemon

The format of both Wikipedia and Techsupportalert are established, and they are effective

Nothing worse than change for change sake, including reducing the amount of information on a web page

Increasing font size is unnecessary for the majority of users - simply press the "CTRL" key while using the middle wheel of the mouse. I hope most TechSupportUsers know this basic function

This is just my opinion, but I prefer the Wikipedia format over Wikiwand's. In comparing the respective pages for Sergey Brin, I notice immediately that the Wikiwand font is much bigger and the main text column is narrower, meaning that you get less information per screen and you will have to scroll more in Wikiwand. The top of the Wikiwand page is a really large photo of Brin. You have to scroll almost immediately to get any information at all. The speed difference for me isn't a factor (a 2 second load time vs 4, approximately). I contribute to Wikipedia occasionally, usually just small edits, but sometimes more. I didn't install the browser plug-in, but in accessing the site directly, I didn't see where you could sign in and edit the content, which is what the "wiki" part of Wikipedia is all about. For me, that's a non-starter.

Thanks for bringing this site to our attention. I won't use it, but I'm sure some people will really like it.

Somehow I doubt the Gizmo page would score many style points as it appears to be even more dated than Wikipedia. Both sites are favorites of mine because of the incredibly useful content and the esthetics are less important.

I've got a new message from Markus Diem regarding this:

Nomacs 2.0.2 portable does now what your reader expected. so the settings are written to a local file in the nomacs folder & plugins are downloaded to the same folder. so you can run nomacs from a USB device with the same settings on different computers. (there is one last issue, that you might need to run the Plugin Manager if the device is mounted with different letters so that nomacs can find them again).

This is not a comment on any other person's submissions, but a point of information -- even if one takes special care not to install any of the "free software" via the "obvious options" in custom installs, several antimalware programs - Malwarebytes, herdProtect, AdwCleaner, for example, will still identify many of these apps as having adware "in them" --- in particular, some of the "editor's choices" -- like Freemake converter, Pazera free audio extractor, not to mention the "huge" problem with Freecorder -- good program, but it comes with adware in the browser extensions, possibly even in the main program -- NOTHING is ever free, and software makers aren't interested in restricting their advertising revenues -- even if one purchases the Freecorder "ad-free" version, rather than just the free version. Clearly, we've reached the stage where such adware checkers are "compulsory" utilities.

2 weeks 5 days ago Download Thousands Of Free MP3 Tracks From Amazon Grim107

Any time you download and convert a video, you lose sound quality. The same goes for using screen recorders. Therefore, it should only be ever done as a last resort. In that case, it is best to open the file in Audacity, and extract as 320kbps MP3 or similar. If you can only find your specific song available on YouTube, it is best practice to use a digital sound card (I'm not aware of any good, free ones, unfortunately) to record the music into Audacity. Doing so will make a 1:1 copy. Many computers offer the ability to record from the computer's built-in sound card, but doing so typically results in serious quality loss. My understanding is that you can buy a very cheap (~$3) external sound card off of eBay, and that will allow a much higher quality recording. My point still stands, though. It's best to simply avoid YouTube as a source altogether, if possible.

Thanks for a good list Jojo.
I have used Money Manager as a replacement for Quicken over the past few years, and it is gradually maturing.
A major improvement in the latest update, is encryption, so that is no longer a minus point.
It has always been portable as well, so it might be worth changing the info in the listing. They give the option to make it portable in the install program.
It is very fast and small. I think I'll stay with it :)

We should try to understand things from the point of view of other people too. All people are not the same. Some are tech savvy, some aren't at all. Some people are not technical oriented at all. They just want to do the work they intend to, and just want things to work. Some are also even afraid to explore around in case they break anything. I remember that when we had our first computer in my house, I was also like that... I was too afraid to even explore around, because I knew nothing about computers at all. Ultimately, I did learn though, but then I had a technical orientation. Not everyone has that. While we may be leaning towards technology, and towards learning, but the other person might not. We should be appreciative of this, and if there are some facilities for such people, then what's the harm? The presence of such facilities is not harming us, is it?

And you cannot compare the kids of today with the people who are older. It's because kids today are more exposed to all this technology, and we all know kids grasp a lot more than the older people.. and therefore if a kid today knows how to operate a mobile, or a tablet, it shouldn't be surprising at all.

Hey, hey, guys. I can quite a bit relate to Faziri's remark.

There is something about those people that not only choose but all too often insist to be part of the "Some of us stay there" crowd - as Rhiannon eloquently remarked.

Cars, computers, most everything in life gets "better" with at least a bit of creative curiosity. In the case of computers that would mean for me to click around, not changing anything but just to explore - and learn in the process.

Our six year old granddaughter just demostrated a "new" feature on the cell phone to my wife . Kids learn playfully; why do us grown ups so often forget or resist doing just that?

Hi, maybe you have a suggestion for me. I have a web site and recently I have added a Free Classified section.

Posting arrives constantly and the system notify me by e-mail and after 10 or 20 I have to log in and delete them even if they are not published and blocked as spam. Of course the sender e-mail is a non existing e-mail address therefore even blocking that e-mail address does not give results.
Any suggestion?

My computer has 32 gb memory spanning 4 sticks. About a month ago the computer was rebooting with no apparent relation to specific programs I was running. First thought was: hard drive failure -- couldn't find a problem. I then ran the win7 command line utility for memory problem -- couldn't find a problem. Used Mem Test 86 -- found the bad stick, replaced it, now everything is hunky dory. It's a very good app.

hi all

Can I ask why the original Mem Test86 isn't listed here?

The last time I used the above (admittedly before Passmark got involved with it), it detected RAM problems that Mem Test86+ (the branch or port) missed.

The RAM was later diagnosed as faulty by the reseller, so I'm grateful and glad I was able to provide 'proof' for my RMA, and that my testing was corroborated.

Why do people keep banging on about needing special ways to access admin tools or using third-party start menus to replace the old Windows 7 ways of doing things?

Here are two simple steps that you use in Widows 8/8.1/8.1 Update 1 to get all of this.

1. Right-click on the Taskbar, mouse over Toolbars and click on Desktop - you now have a tree style menu to everything on your desktop.

2. Right-click on the Taskbar, mouse over Toolbars and click on New Toolbar, now in the window that opens navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and select this folder - you now have a toolbar that gives you, in tree format, everything on your computer.

(If you don't see the Program Data folder go to View in File Explorer and check the "Show Hidden Folders" option.)

Really people, don't make things any harder than they need to be.

I've downloaded the Rapportive add-on for use with my Firefox browser but there's no sign of its presence and nothing at all happens when I open my gmail account -- any of my gmail accounts -- online.

So maybe it's not working with Firefox 31.0 at all, or not with my Gmail set-up (from which all personal information for the purpose of targeting ads at is systematically excluded anyway). Or maybe it's just me and my computer in a parallel world to Rapportive.

I have had only one problem and when I reported it, they fixed it and released the new version the next day. Version 3.0 has nice Windows 8 looking GUI, but I do not like, that they included a pointless tray icon with it. I regularly test the best soft in this category and so far I keep Wise + CCleaner. SlimCleaner suite should also be mentioned. Privazer seems nice too, but it does not really clean that much more, but its scan takes hours stressing HDD too much. Glary Utilities could use better GUI. IOBit with its 300% speed improvement's joke is obviously out of question. :/

I'm with Jojo. Some duplication between categories is inevitable, and indded desirable, to ensure visitors can find what they are searching for. MC - Site Manager.

I think it would then be good for this product to appear in both categories with appropriate descriptions.
