Living Room / New Search Combo Site
« on: December 23, 2009, 12:31 PM »
This is interesting. I heard about a search site on NPR that features results from Bing and Google, side-by-side. Check out http://www.bing-vs-google.com/

Found Deals and Discounts / iPrint v6 is Freeware!
« on: December 22, 2009, 11:27 AM »
Yesterday iPrint v6 was released free for business and/or personal use at http://www.clicktoconvert.com/iPrint/

I've been using it for several months and it's rock solid on WinXP. A really decent way to save on printing costs. :Thmbsup:

General Software Discussion / Printliminator
« on: December 18, 2009, 06:21 AM »
I mostly use aardvark (that I found through a recommendation in this forum) before printing. Now there's a new one at http://css-tricks.co...s/ThePrintliminator/  8)

General Software Discussion / Eudora 8.0b7
« on: December 16, 2009, 01:34 PM »
I didn't especially care for the new Thunderbird interface in WinXP (I use claws in linux) so I downloaded Eudora 8.0b7 at http://www.eudora.com/betas/

This Eudora beta is built on Thunderbird anyway, but I *really* like it. :-*  No stability issues here and very easy to configure.

Living Room / OPENOFFICEMOUSE

I'm beginning to shop for another mouse for my Dell Dimension 3000 box (WinXP & linux). Anyway, I stumbled across http://openofficemouse.com/pr110609.html  ;D

General Software Discussion / Anybody Know About DiskTune?
« on: April 07, 2009, 02:26 PM »
Just downloaded & tried the defrag and optimizer features in DiskTune at http://www.diydatare...very.nl/DiskTune.htm . Anyone familiar with DiskTune? Seems like pretty cool freeware. 8)

Check out a new review of Softmaker Office at http://www.linux.com/feature/153229

Last week, I downloaded an earlier version of Softmaker's software for WinXP after I saw the link at http://lifehacker.co...tweight-office-suite . Softmaker offered me a generous upgrade deal for the 2008 version a few days later and I bought it. Textmaker runs rings around any other word processor that I've used (in WinXP). Rock solid. (Zaine Ridling covered all the good stuff in his review of word processors.) Moreover, it comes with BasicMaker (BM's manual runs to 300+ pages! (Manuals for other office components are even larger)), spreadsheet, presentation software.  :-*

OTOH, I do about 50% of my computing in Ubuntu 8.10, and abiword 2.6.4 works really well in Ubuntu. OpenOffice.org is also plenty fast in linux. (I dual boot on a Dell 3000 running at 3 GHz with 1 GB RAM.) Neither is very fast in WinXP.

Kudos to Softmaker for doing a linux port. Not ready to make a switch in linux--though I did test it on my machine--but they definitely got my attention for WinXP.
