Beautiful. I especially like the soft focus and warm colors. The contrast makes the flower seem to have been edged with a pencil. Nice.

A Touch of Yellow - Yellow Crocus Flowers (Wallpaper of the Week) 2 years 10 months ago rhiannon Hi Tim, I don't post desktop wallpapers for any given size, instead I do my best to find wallpapers that have a lot of resolutions, including dual monitor, Android, iPhone, etc. There are some good dual monitor websites out there (mandolux comes to mind), and some sites with good dual monitor sections. The Windows Personalization site has jumped on the bandwagon with some panoramic (dual monitor) wallpapers. I have dual monitors myself and am usually on the lookout for good wallpapers. :) view
A Touch of Yellow - Yellow Crocus Flowers (Wallpaper of the Week) 2 years 8 months ago AdamJackson

Amazing and vibrant – that’s what I would like to call it. The brilliant combination of bright yellow crocus with green background looks as a perfect reflection of the approaching summer. The wallpaper is so vivid with a blissful colour blend that I now have it as wallpaper on my desktop and tablet. Even my friends liked the wallpaper and I couldn’t resist telling them how to download these. I just love the natural art this wallpaper has and I hope to see more of such brilliant works in seasons to come. Thanks!

A Video Studio In Your Browser. For Free. 6 months 4 weeks ago wreckage

Hoo, boy. I tried it as a test and failed miserably. Firstly, they say to use it in Chrome. Ok... Next, upload a couple of pics.. OK, done.
Then.. Import media . It tried to connect to my Dropbox. Failed. I then tried to connect to Google Drive and that too failed. I then closed the tab in disgust. I have not time to work out which of my security add-ons or malware protections need to be disabled to get it to work.
Never mind. Much like coming home to warm beer, life is full of disappointments.

The real benefit of this service is that it provides excellent, free, commercial-grade templates for opening and closing title/credit sequences. These are not something that could be produced without a lot of effort and there is no good alternative supplier of free, dynamic title/credit templates of this quality.

What goes in between are your video files. But if you want to do any clipping, merging, zooming or other effects then that has to be done before uploading to showbox. In fact, you might as well produced the whole content as one video before uploading if that’s what you want to do. But if you have a set of clips that can just be put in order, showbox handles that easily. You can also upload clips in different formats and they will be combined automatically.

It isn’t a video studio, but if you want something just a little bit jazzy at the start and finish, showbox is good.

Aside from a rapid fire You-tube video that was all fluff Showbox didn't actually show me anything. If they can't even bother to offer a FAQ on the home page I'm really not too interested in registering. They don't even tell you what file limits exist or what formats are supported. I'm pretty sure there are better options out there for those looking to create videos.

view
A Video Studio In Your Browser. For Free. 7 months 1 day ago Papakid

I wish there was more info on the home page, too, but scrolling to the bottom of it there is a support link that takes you to some FAQs and one of the basic ones shows a basic tutorial. It could be a lot better--a lot of stuff is gone over way to quickly for me so I have to rewind quite often, but it is solid info, not fluff and you don't have to register to see it.

After watching the tutorial a couple of things strike me. Once you finish a video the only options are to publish it somewhere online--no way is mentioned to save it to your computer. Which kind of makes sense with my other thought--the app is well named because it is really just for producing shows, not any other simpler kinds of video. If anything, production values are overdone.

Thanks for posting--I'll keep it in mind, but don't feel a need to register for it right now.

A Wonderfully Simple, Free, Powerful Clipboard Manager 3 years 1 month ago Faziri I've been using Ditto for ages myself, but Arsclip is indeed quite good too. :) Ditto uses less RAM (14MB <-> 42MB... Every MB counts if you want performance!), but Arsclip is much more user-friendly in config and usage (human-readable and well-structured config, easier image handling)... I'm gonna try Arsclip for a while now! Edit: after another investigation into Ditto, I'd say Ditto wins again. :) You just gotta figure out the names of the types (CF_DIB and such is not very informative) and disable/ignore the tons of features you don't use (network sharing and such). The killer feature that made me go back was search-as-you-type, which Arsclip doesn't have. view

The one that won my personal battle and became my clipboard manager of choice is Clipboard Help and Spell (from DonationCoder, at http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Mouser/clipboardhelpandspell/index... ) It lets me sort various categories of stored clips into subsets and supports images too. view
A Wonderfully Simple, Free, Powerful Clipboard Manager 3 years 1 month ago Hondoe1950

I agree with "oblivion" that Clipboard Help and Spell is the best! I explored a very large number of clipboard utilities and was amazed at the capabilities of Clipboard Help and Spell.

It's available at:

http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Mouser/clipboardhelpandspell/index...

You can:

Configure the number of previous clips to see in the pop-up menu

See a much larger listing of all of the clips used recently

Capture both words and images for pasting

Delete any clip copied (great for passwords)

Set up a set of favorites for re-pasting

and much, much more.

It is by far the most powerful clipboard manager I've ever encountered, and surprisingly easy to use, too.

It's especially great if you copy or cut some text and open a MS Office program to paste the text into. Microsoft arrogantly clears the clipboard upon opening. This utility allows you to get it back. One improvement might be to put the contents back into the clipboard upon opening the Office document.

The free VPN is only available on Developer version 38 of Opera. It is not quite a VPN but a proxy that only protect your browsing not other apps.

It reverted without warning to my IP addresses, and despite giving the green light (it is actually blue) on the browser bar.

A Worthy Competitor To Dropbox? 3 years 10 months ago Bret Bret

I just went and installed drop box today in all of my devices.I recently bought a galaxy 3s and they offer you the basic 2g space for sign up, an additional 42 gigs for you're $700.00 phone purchase. I also installed it on my mothers Mac,my son's win 7 desktop, my ex's mac, my daughter's laptop, and my laptop. Drop box gave me an additional 250 mg's for Each referral. So for a chunk of my time and some gas I ended up with a bit over 50 gig's for free.The install was straight forward simple and fast. (I am by NO means a gooroo at all this) still I installed drop box on 2 win 7 Os, Ice cream sandwich. 2 mac's' Linux mint 14 and windows 8 after work and before dinner. Too funny,it Sounds like I just ran threw McD's drive through LOL. Hi, yea, I need a couple Ice creams, a couple big macs,and give me a mint shake to. Sure I'll pay at windows one and pull forward to windows two.... Any ways. I love the the share set up so far I can't wait to play with it more.. BUT???? Why would any one pay a fee for extra space privately.I can understand the buisness advantages. And if it was not possible to get more space other than to pay for it. But really that is not the case now. Give a couple referrals sync up with Google, Sky drive, Cloud. Whatever is best for you. Pick you're favorite one for uploading and sharing. Use the others for elbow room. Then back every thing that is important up externally!!!. I bought a 1TB external hard drive last year (Black Friday) for around $100.00 .... This year I got a Western digital 3TB for $120'ish. I am a musician, and the year before last Win 7 and a bad bug CRUSHED my laptop. I lost some irreplaceable stuff. Some jam sessions that I wanted to work on some pictures that I don't know if I'll ever be able to track down again. Now days I'm over excessive about backing things up. Now let me ask. At $15 a month how long would it take to get to a $100? And an external with usb 3 is way faster than uploading if you have allot of items, a slow comp or slow internet. Not only that NO one can hack/virus/steel/peek and or invade an external when it's not plugged in. So share you're stuff. Send it to friends family you.BUT be aware that nothing is "safe" on the web. If you are not willing to lose it or share then back it up in an offline spot. I am no expert on this. Just a simple man's thoughts/ramblings. O:-) ...

P.S. about installing box on Linux.. I'm not sure if this will work for you but try running wine. I've had some good luck with some of the more basic windows program's and mint 14.

"Copy something to your Dropbox folder on your PC, and it instantly gets synced to the cloud, and also copied to any other computers which are linked to your account and on which you've installed the Dropbox client app."

Will it preserve a directory tree?

I am doing some study and find it very frustrating that professors pass files to students via "Blackboard". Some build directory trees with multiple files in "Blackboard". I am pretty sure that they have to build them piecewise and can not copy from their local drive. Then, the files have to be downloaded one-by-one, and the directory tree is not preserved. These are not tech professors, but they get little to no technical help from other departments or the uni in general (go figure). If someone at the uni (many unis) would make a procedural instruction sheet for a good service, it might save instructors and students all kinds of time and frustration (misplaced files). I'll try this where I am; though, I think it would ultimately require some IT help staff to back it up with some live instruction from time to time.

view
A Worthy Competitor To Dropbox? 2 years 1 month ago rob.schifreen If the directory tree is a standard Windows folder, then Dropbox will work just fine.

Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 4 months 3 days ago snowbound999

Google Chrome by default will add a website to its "Orher Search Engline" list automatically when you go to a website and use it's Search box to search for anything. For example go to bleepingcomputer.com [a well known computer help website] search for anything using the website search box on their web page. Then look under Chrome's Search Engine page udner "Other Search Engines". You will see a Bleeping Computer" entry in Chrome.

I discovered that Chrome here had over 100 such entries added automatically. Some of these entries even had the search terms that I was looking for on that particular website! People have complained to Chrome Devs that this behaviour is a privacy issue and that there should be a way of disabling this option. There is no way of disabling this behaviour on Chrome

If I seen this type of behaviour on some one's computer I would normally think a malware infection like a browser hijacking. This type of behaviour by Chrome made me go back to using Firefox on all my computers.

Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 months 3 weeks ago Remah

I'm not sure what the fuss is over and above everything else that Google does or does not do.

To clarify:

  • Google Chrome doesn't do this for every site search. It only does it where the website uses Google Custom Search. You can usually tell if Google Custom Search is being used because the search results will follow a selection of Google-supplied ads that say "Ads by Google related to: " your search term. In such a case, Google already have access to "private" information that you want to protect. I guess that Google will almost certainly have enough information to identify your computer and your user account as well.
  • Google does provide an opt out feature. If you don't want this sort of information on your computer then you should be using Incognito mode which disables both browsing history and other search engines.
  • Unless you use Incognito mode then the information will be in your browsing history anyway.

If I was a user of Google Chrome and Google already had that info then I would prefer the benefit of some automation of searches over not having that feature.

view
Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 months 3 weeks ago snowbound999

Sorry but have to use incognito mode for all sites is not an opt out option. Its a work around. That option hinders my browsing on all websites since Chrome would have to be always using incognito mode. I have got fed up with Google's attitude over the years of either doing it their way or take the high road. I decided the later and ditch Chrome as my browser.

I can search these same websites just fine in Firefox which does not have to save all of this search engines in my browser. I use UBlock Origin on my browsers to block annoying ads as well as malware that in the past have been served up intentionally and unintentionally on websites. I only unblock a select few websites.

view
Access Any Web Site's Search System Direct From Your Chrome Browser 3 months 3 weeks ago Remah

Google Chrome's incognito mode is Google's opt out option if you have concerns about the privacy of your local browsing history. We may not like their attitude and the option may not be adequate - it is probably still the case that Chrome doesn't delete all your temporary browsing data - but it is the option that they provide.

A work around is something like having to suspend tracking after you have logged into a google account while in incognito mode. See How secret is Google Chrome's 'incognito' mode? for more info on this issue.

That is a nice tip since I mostly use SlimJet, yet another chrome variation. As for Opera, I stayed with v. 8.52 for years when other browsers got bulky with feature creep. I still have Opera v. 12.14 64 bit for when the up to date browsers cannot seem to do something such as playing a Flash video from a particular site. Opera did some things well but the publishers adhered to bizarre obstinacy in strange places such as objecting to an AutoCopy method or any alternative to carpal tunnel syndrome when copying lines to the clipboard. The same attitude seems to plague Vivaldi.

For now I find SlimJet Portable 32 bit to be my chrome flavor of choice. :)

Add Text, Or Info About Your PC, To Your Desktop 2 years 6 months ago Australia

BGInfo is a great way to have information visible on the Windows desktop, is very customisable, and even better, its "portable"

I can change the text size, font, colour, and choose any or all of the Windows system information options

And as Rob suggests, I can remove ALL the computer information and just have other information, such as a to do list for the day, or a list of quotations, or anything I like !

However, readers would appreciate knowing that this program makes changes to the registry, and that once you use this program, it is not immediately obvious how to "uninstall the program"

After reading BGInfo's homepage and the homepage's recommended reading site, I was still unsure how to uninstall this program

Thankfully, I found the answer in the Help section of the program:
"BGInfo does not require any special installation. To run it simply execute BGINFO.EXE from a convenient location.
To uninstall, delete BGINFO.EXE and reset your system's wallpaper using Windows' Desktop Properties dialog"

Something also not clear - how can we get BGInfo to "display the contents of a text file". Sounds very useful, for example to display a regularly updated text file of events for the current calendar month. The instructions were not simply explained

Thanks Rob for yet another marvellous Hot Find, you are amazing, and a much valued asset to the TechSupportAlert website

I rate BGInfo a 10/10 for being portable, and so very customisable !

And correct me if I'm wrong, but BgInfo uses NO system resources ! So I rate it a 10+/10 !

Using BGInfo and another freeware program "Photo On Desktop-7", which allows me the very basic but essential task of floating any chosen image on my computer screen (eg a to do list, or a loved ones photo), and my daily organisation skills are enhanced greatly !

I have no affiliation with either program
