1  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Ocster Backup Pro 8 disct expires April 28th, 2014 on: April 19, 2014, 12:58:43 PM
As stated in the email received 4-17-2014:

Gift From the Easter Bunny.  Save 67% on Ocster Backup Pro 8.

At Easter people like to fulfill the wishes of those that are important to them. For us, our users are the most important people, so we decided to fulfill your most requested wish.

Last month on World Backup Day we ran a unique 24 hour promotion with a huge 67% discount on Ocster Backup Pro 8. People were very excited, but we also got some critical feedback from those who wanted more time to test the software before buying.

We understand! So we decided to offer this big 67% discount again over the Easter holidays.

Buy now: 12.90 USD 39.90 USD

More Information

Offer valid only until Monday, April 28th, 2014 !

Installed Ocster 1-Click Backup from GiveAwayoftheDay and now Ocster sends me these deal alerts. Use mainly Acronis True Image so can't critique Ocster product but discount is substantial for those in the market for backup software.

You need to try Easy Screencast Recorder http://www.donationcoder....are/Mouser/esr/index.html, though it's not really meant for that task, I think

Thanks.  Installed Easy Screencast Recorder and captured about 20 seconds of one of the embedded flash videos at http://www.ruger.com/products/lcr/extras.html.  ScScreencaster Video Preview box opened and the video played but without sound.  Then played back .asf file in VLC but video also lacked audio.  It's as if the sound component of the video file is not being captured or an audio codec is missing although that would surprise me given VLC's versatility.

Sail a different course with this.

Thanks for the tip.  Did everything through, "Rename the <some weird code>.tmp files you'll find in I:\ to <meaningful name>.flv and watch your flash video's in VLC."  Unfortunately, none of the .tmp files renamed .flv (even a longer .dll file) worked in VLC.  What I actually did was only change the extension of all <some weird code>.tmp files to <some weird code>.flv.  Even changed a longer .dll file with no luck.  Will try again later.

I actually meant capturing flash videos as they're playing on the user's screen similar to what Free Screen Video Recorder does.

According to the program's site: Free Screen Video Recorder is a compact, yet full-featured screen video recorder and screenshot capture tool that allows you to easily record screen activities and capture anything on the screen including windows, objects, menus, full screen and rectangular regions.

I usually use the FlashGot extension in Firefox to download videos but it's unable to capture embedded flash videos.  Thought I read that you configured SC to record screen videos as they played (as Free Screen Video Recorder does) but maybe I'm mistaking SC for another.

How do I use SC to capture embedded flash videos like for instance those shown at http://www.ruger.com/products/lcr/extras.html? Can it even do this?

Thanks for the heads-up.  Don't use this often but still nice for the tool box.

I've used the free version for longer than I can remember and it's always offered the pro version for 50% off via an icon in the free version's GUI.  60% off is something to consider though.  Already have Winpatrol for monitoring so can't see spending $15.7 for features not much beyond the free version.

If you can stand all of the ads, this article reminded me of this site.  Thank goodness for ad blocking software.

Adfender is a freeware alternative to both Ad Muncher and Ad Block (Plus).  It's reviewed here.  Both of the latter work for me but what's especially nice about Ad Muncher is that it's global and tech support questions were usually answered promptly. 
14  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Bitdefender giveaway on: December 18, 2013, 10:11:13 AM
Done.  Looking for an alternative to avast! Antivirus as it’s become a resource hog and bothers users with too many popups.

Yeah, that's a useful site to find versions before they became bloatware.

Going to miss Winamp updates.  Have used it since Win95 days.  This thread has morphed into a memorial.

Whenever I visit a site that purportedly offers free software and it takes longer than a few minutes to figure out how to acquire it, it raises red flags.  For instance, was looking for XYPLORER and looked at least a couple of times but didn't find it and also, there are too many free offers on that site which usually means either jumping through hoops to get it or it's not really free as advertised.
17  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: XMAS calendar giveaways... on: December 07, 2013, 05:38:44 AM
Site is unorganized and full of fishy offers.  Maybe that's why it's gone unmentioned.

Don't mean to rain on the parade but I'd just a soon buy a factory copy of Acronis TI 2013 off of eBay for $10, shipped than this.  I know Acronis has its haters but it is a mature product.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Network Magic alternative on: October 07, 2013, 08:08:02 PM
You're probably right.  Still, was hoping some program available on this site would suffice.  Guess the demand isn't large enough.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Network Magic alternative on: October 07, 2013, 02:51:48 PM
I managed a 3-PC home network with Cisco Network Magic Pro v. 4.9x.  Just added a fourth cleint, a Thinkpad running Win 7 Pro 64-bit and after installing NM on the laptop, found that Cisco discontinued the program and shut down its sever used to register NM (to elevate the free version to pro).  The free version of NM isn't worth the disk space it occupies so am looking for a NM alternative I can install on all four clients.

Googled "network magic alternative" but found only Spiceworks Desktop as a viable alternative.  Issue is, Spiceworks is not exactly user-friendly and is geared more toward IT professionals, not home network administrators.

Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I'm not sure what View>File Panes does, but XYplorer has has drivebar functionality for a while now (though you had to configure the toolbar to get it):  http://www.xyplorer.com/release_10.10.htm
File Panes simply shows separate drive details horizontally (as pictured above and/or below) or vertically.  It's especially handy when moving files between drives.

Thanks for the Drive Bar link.  As seen below, I've installed it but didn't read far enough to know if it can be installed as a separate bar as is so easily done in PD.  That's the thing about PD; it's extremely user-friendly as oblivion wrote.  One major gripe about it though is that it sometimes loads slow or incompletely (at least compared with XYplorer) implying that it's a resource hog.

22  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: why would you want to buy PowerDesk? on: August 19, 2013, 10:30:56 AM
I’d be interested to know if your preference for PowerDesk is just about familiarity, or if it genuinely has acquired functionality or something ergonomic that gives it an edge over the other (increasingly extensive!) non-Microsoft competition.

Familiarity has a lot to do with it and have also tried XYplorer but found it still can't match Powerdesk's View>File Panes function and Drivebar toolbar.

I've been a fan of Powerdesk Pro since v.5 but only at a $10 update price.  Their support, as I recall, also leaves something to be desired.  Still, can't imagine computing without that Powerdesk explorer GUI.

Thanks for putting a through date in your title.  All post titles here should include expiration dates to save trouble of finding out the offer expired a long time ago.

With LibreOffice and OpenOffice available for free forever, see no need to ever pay for an office suite except maybe MS if your needs dictate.
