Great resources and great volunteers doing an excellent / unbiased job make this site a valuable resource to folks looking for solutions to all sorts of computing needs. Just because its free does not mean its inferior! In fact I've found for many solutions the free stuff is often better than a paid alternative. The one element here as opposed to other free sites is the great evaluations of the products and product categories. Its been a go to site for me for many years and I hope for many more years. Keep up the good work.

me2. When i see the word "App" (or "smartphone" for that matter) i read "collector of your personal information."

It seems clear the business model is, we give you something you value for free, and we collect and sell information about you to help companies target ads to you (and who knows what other uses).

Is there any indication this app is not part of that model?

For example, what kind of information could an app gather about you if it could scan several of your documents?

Speccy is a good application from a trustworthy developer.
However, it shows only the installed and identified devices of your system.

In cases where you have unknown hardware and no drivers installed yet and you may want to determine the unknown devices, Speccy doesn't help. For these cases, I suggest HWiNFO in general or HWMonitor, CPU-Z and GPU-Z for specific ones.

Amazon Shutting Down Music Storage Subscription Service April 30, 2018 2 years 5 months ago jwright

I bought additional dot's to play tunes throughout the house. Subsequently this was announced.
Very disappointed in Amazon. Fortunately, Google Music let's you upload thousands of your songs for free.
I uploaded over 10,000 and made a lot of playlists. I now have 3 Google Home devices for playback.
By the way, the Google devices are rapidly catching up to Alexa's compatibility to control other devices.

Amazon's allowance of uploaded songs was 250, quite different from Google. From what I can gather, this was done to weed out inactive accounts where the MP3's were taking up space. Might have been a lot of accounts, given how much server space amazon has and sells. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Geekomatic

I'll give this a go today!

I tried one during it's beta & it may have been the one you were speaking of: fontifier? I think?

Can you tell me if the letters need to be centred in each square for even the symbols? I recall that when I did the one from before, the quotes mark was too low & comma too high-- if you know what I mean? Can you elaborate?

Cheers!

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Fairportfan

If it's like other font-generation programs, position them as if the test baseline ran across the block about a third of the way up - lower-case letters ought sit on that line and go up to about one-third down from the top, which leaves room for ascenders and descenders; comma and period should sit at the point where the baseline would be, quote and apostrophe should be about one-third from the top of the box.

I'll go download a template and come back and amplify this a bit.

===========

Okay; i looked at the templates, and they have tick marks for baseline, ascender and descender height and so on.

Looks simple.

Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago BearPup

For me, this site is more good idea than definitely doable, and for the reason that some have mentioned - if you don't have a steady hand and eye, getting each character to line up, look connected to adjoining letters, and be smoothly drawn is downright difficult. My results were also on the horrendous / unusable side of the results scale.

@Fairportfan: It may be simple, at least in theory, but easy to accomplish / get good results, its nowhere near being simple.

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Fairportfan

I've uploaded a sample of my handwriting font, created with a very similar program (quite possibly the same software they're using) a year ago, to my webhosting at http://electronictiger.net/handrot.jpg

===========

Don't try to produce true cursive with connected letters.

If you have problems getting the letters to line up on the grid, write all the characters separately on paper, scan it, and then copy/paste appropriately-resized images of each one into the image of the template.

(I did that once to produce a "ransom note" font using letters cut from newspapers and magazines.)

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Fairportfan

Okay. I tried it. Just a quick'n'dirty; i only generated the numbers 0 to 9 and the letters to write a short sentence.

I tried it twice - once using a black ballpoint and one using a fine-point Sharpie. I wasn't particularly careful about my penmanship, either.

Not counting the trip to the store to buy a marker and pen (thirty minutes), and arguing with my DTP software as to whether they were fonts it wanted to admit existed (other programs had no problems; i guess Serif PagePlus is snooty), total time involved in making this limited character set was about twenty minutes, counting making the scans.

You can see the result at http://electronictiger.net/fonts.png

(When i was actually making the fonts, i noticed that they offer the templates as PNG images; as i said before, if you download those, you can copy/paste individual images into the blocks if you are having trouble writing in them on the template itself.)

Remember to print the templates in colour - actually, i don't know if it will make a difference, but the faint images in each block are red to make them less likely to reproduce.

Do NOT scan in B&W mode - greyscale is preferable, but they say you can get away with colour.

I scanned at 300 DPI.

Hope this helps.

(I'm working on a very large set, with numerous special characters; when i finish it, i'll post the results online and link 'em here.)

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Fairportfan

What did you use to fill in the template?

Black is pretty much mandatory, a fine-point or extra-fine-point Sharpie is best of all.

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Fairportfan

What browser?

Worked fine for me in Opera, and in Firefox and (though i use it only reluctantly, and generally only to check websites) in IE.

=============

Try clicking the "Create Template" button. If that works, it's not locked up, just strangely designed.

While you're at the first page, try typing characters that aren't already shown in the block, and they should go into the list to be on the template, even there's no cursor there.

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Fairportfan

A further look reveals that the lightly-printed guide characters on the template show where you need to place the character in the block.

view
Amazing! Create A Windows Font From Your Own Handwriting 6 years 8 months ago Frank D

I used a black, fine point, BiC Mark-it pen. The 5 or so letters that did come out well were beautiful and well formed. But the rest of the letters that did not (they showed up as blank rectangles) made me quit my efforts.

I can't understand why only some letters appeared and not others, when this is a *hand* writing font, and theoretically anything that's in the box, regardless of shape, should show up.

view

Due to the fact that i used a paint program to size the characters accurately to paste them into the PNG of the template, some of them vary a bit in stroke weight. Otherwise, came out pretty good: http://electronictiger.net/fullfont.jpg

I should have used quadrille paper or something with guidelines, rather than a blank sheet when i printed the initial characters.

1 font
75 characters (no ligatures) per font.
3 variants per characters .

There is a paid version without such limits, which is available by the month (no subscription, pay for just the month)

Okay - might want to take it off the site - the 75 characters you are allowed is too few to create a font with upper and lower case letters, numbers and basic punctuation, which comes to 80 characters.

So, basically, it's not free any more. It was fun while it lasted.

Amazing Spreadsheet Templates for Excel And Others 3 years 7 months ago Australia

Great find Rob, and thank you
I have been looking for a good calendar on the web for years
These calendars are available in both Excel and Word formats, and are extremely professional in their design
And just as importantly, no adware, no trial period, nor a need to provide personal information first

One minor flaw, which is feedback more for the website creators
Unless I am mistaken, these calendars only provide the day layout Sunday - Saturday
Many people prefer the day layout of Monday - Sunday, not Sunday - Saturday, with their calendars and diaries
I have had to redesign the downloaded calendar, to suit my preference
I found the Excel spreadsheet easier to modify than the Word version

Checked out the site literally as you suggested - Nigeria. The "information" about Nigeria was shallow, full of cliches and glib statements "...Nigeria is home to a substantial network of organized crime, active especially in drug trafficking..." - first entry. Compare with Wikipedia that starts out "...Nigeria, officially the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a federal constitutional republic comprising 36 states and its Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The country is located in West Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east, and Niger in the north...". There is more to Nigeria than some purported 'substantial network of organized crime', just there is more to the USA than its well-known network of organized crime.

It's a sure bet I won't be going there again, and yes, I am a Nigerian.
