This Site Is a One Stop Destination for Most of Your Calendar Needs 4 weeks 37 min ago crombierob

Depending on how much detail you need to type / recall
UK's Kalender saves the data on your PC.
I just went back 3 years, and all of my entries back then are still visible, and can be expanded to see extra notes that I left on those entries.

I need a one person digital calendar accessible both on and off line for historical usage that does not truncate older entries and a company willing to put that in writing. When Outlook (unannounced) started cutting off at one year I lost years of my life.

For those of you that -
- Lack wall space (to stick a calendar)
- Lack a printer (to print a calendar)
- Want the calendar to automatically remind you of things
- Just show you the current month (but you can navigate to other months)
- Sit in front of your computer all day

I match all of the conditions I mentioned above,

PS I was a senior analyst in IT for 20 years, and I could not design/program a better calendar than that one.

How To Blur Faces and Strip Metadata from Images 1 month 4 hours ago rhiannon

Are you using the classic version of Waterfox? If I understand correctly, the newer versions of Waterfox and Firefox handle memory differently than older versions. Older version handle memory as a single process, newer versions handle memory as multiprocesses.

There are some about:config tweaks that will increase the amount of resources allocated to older versions of Waterfox or Firefox. Be aware that changing some of them like the process count can put more of a load on your processor, others such as increasing the cache are usually fine. Look up Firefox 'increase Firefox memory about config' in your preferred search engine. Most of the config changes should work in Waterfox.

How To Blur Faces and Strip Metadata from Images 1 month 8 hours ago gruff

rhiannon, I think you might be able to help with Waterfox. I started using it and loved it far bettter than Firefox. However a problem arose and I figured out what was causing it and contacted the developer who became kind of snotty and refused to fix the problem.

The problem arises in how WF handles memory. FF, if you recall, opens a new block of memory if too many tabs are opened. In my work I generally have 80 or more tabs open at once, and FF has them sectioned off in 8 or 10 separate blocks of memory. WF however, tries to keep them all in one block of memory which slows the computer down severely. A second problem arises as I save the files to disk. It doesn't release the memory, so even if there is only one tab left open, that same huge block of memory sits there intact, slowiing my machine down to a crawl. It takes existing WF to release that memory.

I tried explaining that to the WF developer and all he said to me was, he designed it to be a "single process operation". I asked him what that meant, but he never answered me. I will keep checking and when he does an upgrade on WF, I'll try it again to see if it still has the same problem.

Thanks ... /ed

I don't know what to tell you about reverse look up of the address. In a browser it resolves to an invalid URL. If used as directed it resolves and issue with Windows Media Player.
The URL akamaitechnologies.com returns a server IP address could not be found message. If there's something in the information or the article that makes you uncomfortable or you feel is dangerous, don't use the information. In any case, Akamai underlies a good percentage (15% to 30%) of all web traffic.

As to the game server not working, Microsoft shut down their Internet Games server (Windows XP, ME, 7) on January 22, 2020.

I found that Defender is still updated on 7 but it is not an Antivirus solution. Antivirus is still needed. As of May of 2020 I found that Avast has added quite a few nag screens as well as making my 7 machine take an extra 3 to 4 minutes to boot up. I will update if I find an alternate program that is more friendly for Win 7.
