Need A HDMI Cable? Tempted To Spend Heavily? Don't. 6 years 3 months ago Sgluber

Remah,

thanks for your post. But I think you didn't understand my point of view and what I meant.

Need A HDMI Cable? Tempted To Spend Heavily? Don't. 6 years 3 months ago Sgluber

The comment was succinct and personal. To preserve and keep the focus on the most important thing here: the post from rob.schifreen.

My opinion and your opinion here are secondary. And probably many users were not confused or mistaken after reading what I wrote, like you were.

Freak Attack: Patch Is On The Way 5 years 11 months ago Sgluber

It seems I found the answer for my own question posted yesterday (see below):

"...
Who is vulnerable?
The FREAK attack is possible when a vulnerable browser connects to a susceptible web server—a server that accepts “export-grade” encryption.
...
Chrome for Windows and all modern versions of Firefox are known to be safe. However, even if your browser is safe, certain third-party software, including some anti-virus products and adware programs, can expose you to the attack by intercepting TLS connections from the browser. ..."

Handy Firefox Extension Helps Your Online Privacy 5 years 4 months ago Sgluber

Since Firefox is the best browser for privacy and offer many resources for a "clean" web browsing, it's true that an extension like that sounds like something unnecessary. Plus, there are many good utilities that can help in this way.

But it is very good to see and count with a large and diversified number of good options and possibilities. The freedom in choosing what and how we want is unpayable.

From this point of view, I think that Click And Clean and all the other resources that help people are totally welcome.

A Complete Music Scoring And Notation App For Free 6 years 2 months ago sgodlovitch

I'm not sure what changes are available between the free versions of Forte 5 and Forte 6 - at least, it wasn't obvious from their promotion of the product. The improved changes all seem to attach only to the commercial versions.
Both free Forte versions are very admirable editors but they have - for me at least - one serious limitation. Neither, as far as I can see, allows for layout adjustment, so you're stuck if you need fewer staff lines to the page (as, e.g., you'll want for many classical guitar scores).
If you're wanting a much more full-featured free notation editor, I'd recommend the latest version of MuseScore - version 2.0 beta 1 - which is, in my experience, even easier to use than Forte. MuseScore allows for layout changes not to mention a wealth of extras for score notation.

Best Free Tune-up Program For Computer 5 years 2 months ago sgtpapa

I will be 71 this month and not all that smart when it comes to computers. Yes, I can find the "on-off-delete" buttons, but at times I wish there was a place I could kick my computer in the ass so it would do what I wanted it to! It's worse than my Brother-In-Law! This review along with all the comments that followed have given me some great ideas as to the free tools I might use to clear up and fix some of my computer's problems. And yes, some of you are probably laughing and saying to yourselves that none of these programs will fix OPERATOR ERROR type problems. [I spent over 23 years in electronic maintenance in the Air Force and the thing that pissed the Maintenance Chief off the most was to see OPERATOR ERROR on an outage report.] But, I am learning more each day and thanks to sites and articles like this, I'm having less 'downtime'.

Best Free BitTorrent Client 7 years 8 months ago shanemorales

Best Free Digital Image Viewer 3 years 11 months ago shannf

Zoner Photo Studio (using custom sort), IrfanView, and FastStone Image Viewer (but not XnView) allow you to drag thumbnail images around the screen and change the order in which they are displayed - and then rename them in the new order if you wish. I find this very convenient. Zoner is a big (67 MB) download, it has no portable version, and it requires registration. IrfanView (4.8 MB) and FastStone (8.0 MB) both have portable versions, are much smaller downloads, and do not require registration. IrfanView requires you to open an image then click FileMenu and Thumbnails to display all the images in a folder, which is rather awkward. FastStone looks nicer than Irfan, and it has excellent menu displays if you move the cirsor to the edge of a full-screen image. I therefore use FastStone as my default viewer.

The Faster Way To Copy Files 5 years 3 months ago shannf

I've spent hours investigating free copy programmes that copy quickly and verify the copy. Both Teracopy and Fastcopy are fast and can be set to automatically verify. Teracopy has the advantage that it integrates into Windows and can be used as the default for all copy/move operations with verify on or off - BUT it hangs when hundreds of files are copied (Google "Teracopy stops"). Fastcopy is not as easy to use (read the detailed instructions), but it is very reliable and has never just stopped even with very large copy jobs - it can also be used with or without verify. I use Teracopy as my usual copy utility, and Fastcopy for large jobs.

Best Free Digital Image Editor 7 years 1 month ago shannon4599usa

hello
i got tired of Gimp [and it's look-alikes] and I run into Deep Paint 2.0!
I love it! the effects of the brushes are extremely realistic, the texture brushes are easy to use and everythjng is straight forward and medium learning curve. Not alot of photo editing features but you can find and download all kinds of adobe pluggins to customize it doesn't accept adobe actions or do .ico.gifs but it's great.
high memory filter and cloning are not redoable so back the files up before using. brush creation a breeze it's just taking black and white pictures and inverting them[white on black backgrounds] doesn't accept adobe abr brushes but you can convert those to png invert tweak with the contrast and add those to the resource/brush folder user manual built in

For photo editng i use VirtualStudio which also uses adobe pluggins some are more compatible with here than deep paint vice versa. some pluggins do collaging as well try em out!!! edits most formats.still testing out.might take photoshop actions.

deep paint 2.0 is downloadable from http://download.chip.eu/en/Deep-Paint-2.0_132831.html as Right Hemisphere has a new paid version 3d don't bother registering it.

Best Free Office Suite 6 years 10 months ago shannon4599usa

Of all the office free ware I prefer the TextMaker. now known as free office.

Lotus, LibreOffice, OpenOffice, OxygenOffice, etc. are practically memory hogging clones!
Everytime I get them I end with some kind of windows error that closes my WinXp Computer.
Lotus Office is the root for all of them and if you choose one choose Lotus to prevent problems
with your system and to save on memory.

Kingoffice Doesn't have the the text color and likes other features.

AbiWriter is clumsy and slow. Very Limited Figures.

Textmaker is a breath of free air. Also hidden in the formats are image tools that like you do all kinds of transparency, photo editing tricks, if you want to freely move the image change the Frame mode and you can type over the image as well.
No fancy plugins and there a limited default text color palette you can always per session edit a color and save it to change text colors.

Best Free Office Suite 5 years 1 month ago shannon4599usa

My vote goes to Softmaker FreeOffice. Sure it may not have all the bells and whistles of the other office listed in this article but. It's easy to use and have enough features for the adverage office user to use. There are many features hidden within it and for selecting colors there's a simple basic Microsoft basic color tool instead of complicated palettes.
WPS is full of crap! Kingsoft so called Antivirus was a backdoor for an virus to get into my computer I don't use their WPS office either because it keeps trying to make one install software from another company that user doesn't need. SSuite office software wants to add an entire "operation system" to your computer loaded with crap you don't need like yet another web browser. Wordgraph is slow and buggy and the features are hard to find.
LibreOffice, Sun (Lotus) Office and Apache Open Office and a lot of others are software clones with different names! These guys are slow and I kept getting freezes and bugs when trying to type a document.

How to Stop the Pesky Interference from Laptop Touchpads When Typing 7 years 7 months ago sharoni

I have a new Dell Vostro laptop with ELAN touchpad.
The fancy touchpad settings utility that's provided with the laptop has a Palm Tracking option, which I set to "ON" and choose the maximum. When I am typing, the result is a bit better than with minimum, but still terrible.

To make things worse DELL placed the touchpad center NOT alligned with the keyboard center. So when I type it literally forces my right palm to rest on the touchpad.

Finds of the Week: Block Windows Updates in Windows 10 Home / All about Windows System Repair Discs / 8 ways to protect yourself online / Science Daily 3 years 5 months ago sharphawk4

Hello to everyone! I have a problem and look for help, if possible. I have a dual boot LINUX / /W 10 PC (I7 CPU & 8GB ram). For a long while I used both in dual booted mode without any problems. Since about 10 months, suddenly some W10 updates were available but I had to give them up, because updating starts, reaches 99% and then says that for some "reason" update could not be completed and undoes all updates and restarts. This process take a very long time (> 10-15 m) and thus the only work-around I found was to disable the windows-update service. This is somewhat dangerous security wise in the long run. Interesting enough, not even local m$oft support, which I contacted, could not fix the issue, could not tell me why update process can not completed, and they finally said that (a) they do not support the dual boot systems (b) I have to reinstall windows and drop LINUX dual boot. Does anyone know a work around other then the one I used i.e. disabling the W10 update service? Does anyone knows what stops W10 update to complete? Thanks for your help...SH

It is great, it looks great, so it seems at least.
What is less clear is the main issue: the architecture!. What needs to be installed on PC and on tablet? How communication happened...After extensive search/read/guess...I suspect that both your PC and tablet exchange information via an AirDroid "central service" and it is not clear at all how the information exchanged is secured if at all.....
It is a pity this (marginal issue?) is not clearly mentioned in the description: maybe this is "obvious" for most, not for me....

Thanks for your msg Jojo, I appreciate ! It is true that the added information states that encryption is used till Airdroid central service, so that nobody on internet can have access to exchanged data between your devices (PC, tablet) and Airdroid central service. This said, according to me (if I understood things correctly) one issue remains: the program at Airdroid has access to non-encrypted information, since being at the end of two SSL sessions, it has to swap / copy info from one encrypted session to the other.
