I started downloading Portal........... if I'm still sane? that's an almost 4 GIG download. Minesweeper it ain't! thumb down

The price quoted on their site for the software is for a downloaded copy. If you want the CD it's $10 additional!

At the moment this deal is looking like a scam. I tried to get some info on shipping because it was taking so long and received an email last night (Saturday night) that the CD would be mailed "the first thing Monday morning" after having been told previously that it has already been shipped.
Odds are good that I've been "had". Angry
5  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Windows 7 on: March 13, 2010, 05:54:15 PM
I ran across vender that is operating similar to Serial Sellers (Sales?) in that they are buying large quantities in bulk and selling individual applications.
I hesitate to recommend them at the moment but I have a CD for Win7 in the mail. I've been running the RC and it's rebooting every two hours........ until that CD gets here
The reason I called: I'm wondering how many people are interested in buying Win7 (any version) or any other software?
I told the guy on the phone that I placed the order with that if everything was legit and worked out OK that I might have some more customers for them. This would seem like a good time to do a little wheeling and dealing to maybe get a lower price or at least get free shipping. They are charging $10 US for the CD with free shipping, otherwise it's a download?? (BIG download)
My CD should arrive here early next week and I can poke it into this machine immediately so I can get more answers.
Post your name and what you want so I can cut and paste to develop a list, unless there's a better way to come up with a list?
I don't know if they will ship outside US but I can find out exactly what software they will have available and their prices.
I'll get back here early next week after I get Win7 installed. smiley

I just posted a reply to this in the wrong place!
I suggested: http://www.izarc.org/
as an archiver/compressor app.
Open it up, select all file formats, point it to your download folder and you're in business!
I've used it for years and would rather fight than switch! embarassed

You might want to take a look at IzArc for a compressor app.
Open it up, select all file formats, point it to your downloads folder and you're off and running!
I've used it for years and would rather fight than switch. Cool

So much for monster cables!


**Hot Deal** Amazon has this HDMI (2 meter) 6 foot cable HQ 1080P 1.3b for $0.25

Sounds fair to me?

Here's a little different approach to saving web pages.
I've used HTTrack for years with good results but ran across this a few months ago and it has become indispensable.
Usually I download just the home page, or first page, of what I want to save and then go back later to get any remaining info that I want to keep. It's a simple, fast, easy way to grab something of interest!
I'm using the Lite or freeware version of Local Website Archive and seldom use HTTrack anymore. YMMV

"Local Website Archive

Local Website Archive offers a fast and easy way to store information from the web on your hard disk. Archived web pages and documents are stored in their original file format and can also be opened with associated applications or found by desktop search engines.

Local Website Archive can be used as WebSite-Watcher add-on or as stand alone program without WebSite-Watcher.

Local Website Archive is available as a professional and a freeware version."

If you enjoy cool tools then perhaps you'll enjoy another cool freebie that has been mentioned before and complements any source editor.......... View Source Editor


Try it if you haven't already?

I ran across some tools while out slumming earlier.
Anybody know what they're for?

14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Super FDisk (iso) on: September 09, 2008, 07:52:22 PM
Has anyone had a chance to test this software yet?
I'm curious about whether an external USB hdd shows up along with the other drives?
I don't have an external USB enclosure to use for testing.
We have a situation in another forum where a lady inadvertently compressed some files while trying to format an external hdd. Now it won't format, the files are locked and won't delete, and the only solution I can think of is to blow away all the partitions on the drive and reformat.
Any ideas?

15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Super FDisk (iso) on: September 09, 2008, 12:08:24 PM
Remember Fdisk?

Here's it's replacement and it works like a champ!


I burned the iso to CD and tried it on XPPro. It booted up without a problem and provides everything you'd want to know about your drives.

I stuck the CD in an old machine with Win2K. Again it booted up fine and even displays the parameters for the hidden partition containing the BIOS/CMOS/whatever?

Well worth the dime for the CD and beats messing with Fdisk!

I'm surprised that IZarc isn't mentioned. It's the only one I use and I'd rather fight than switch.
Install, select all extensions, set it to extract to C:\All downloads and you have a new folder with the extracted files in All downloads. Use "Move To" in the menu bar in Win Explorer to put the whole kaboodle where you want it.
Go to lunch?

Thanks, I'll take a look at Remlap.

18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Polar Help Desk on: August 10, 2008, 12:27:27 PM
Anyone looking for trouble?
I found some!
Polar Help Desk freeware..........
There's a freeware version there which I have downloaded and installed on XPPro64 and XPPro32. I have IIS installed on both machines and the setup for Polar declares a successful install.
I can't get it to work on either machine!
Up front........ I have absolutely no need for a help desk. I ran across the software by accident and was curious to know if it could be adapted to categorize and index tips and tweaks.
If anyone is interested in playing with it I would be happy as hell to learn how to make it work.
It may be worthless for what I was trying to do but gravity wasn't a high value item either until somebody figured out how it worked!

19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Reliable web page capture... on: July 16, 2008, 11:20:23 AM
How about mirroring the entire site and then picking out the page/pages you want?

"HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the "mirrored" website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

WinHTTrack is the Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release. See the download page. "

Apparently you have the problem solved but I ran across DBXConv.exe recently and you might want to rathole the tool for possible use in the future.
The app converts OE dbx files to eml or mbx (Outlook) files which can be opened in a text editor. It's a freebie, command line tool so the price is right and it works!

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Reference Material on: May 01, 2008, 09:27:45 AM
Is this of any value to anyone?
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Monster Cables- The World should know! on: April 29, 2008, 02:00:57 PM
Thanks for the link, vegas.
"Fine, you want (monster) quality cables without paying the 800% markup.  www.MONOPRICE.com"
I just ordered from there. The old Radius monitor I mentioned in a previous post was sans a data cable and the ones at MONOPRICE solved my problem at an unbelievably low price. That's a good link to rat-hole for us old junk collectors
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Unallocated drive space on: April 29, 2008, 01:50:23 PM
Got a new problem and wondering if there is a solution?
About a month ago I bought an old computer w/monitor that had Win2K installed. The price being about the same as two loaves of bread I grabbed it!
Cracked the password, put in a new vid card and it's up and running.
Now I decide to replace the 8GB HDD.......... yeah, right!
There is a hidden partition or unallocated space that I can't image, copy or clone.
I tried TrueImage 7, then TrueImage 11, then XXClone, and finally Seagates Diskwizard software. I can't get a bootable image, or copy, onto a new Seagate drive with any of those.
Being a Yard Sale bargain there was no CD included so to save that copy of Win2K I've got to figure out how to copy those boot files from that unallocated space. I'm assuming it's raw disk space and wondering if that information can be recovered???
It works fine the way it is and I have no real need for a copy of Win2K but that's not the way that boys think.
If I could get the OS imaged I might put it on a newer machine? or not! The process of copying something from a raw drive is what intrigues me.
By the way, the monitor included in the deal is a Radius Intellicolor Display/20e and has the best picture of any monitor in the house. An old multisync from about 2001 weighing in at about a hundred pounds. Damn, it is one heavy old monstor.
TIA for any enlightenment.

Just ran across this..... slipstream SP3

I'm not sure the finished product is worth the effort but boys must have their toys.
It's a way to dump Movie-Maker and Messenger so maybe that will justify the time and effort it takes to put it together.

25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: XPPro SP3 on: April 24, 2008, 04:23:02 PM
I've been trying for two days to download this. Getting nowhere if I did get a connection and finally nothing but 404s.
About 1:30 PST here in Calif. I tried the last link at the bottom of the list at MajorGeeks and it came pumping down like I was the only man at the pump!
It just finished about 10 mins ago so if you couldn't get a connection previously give tail-end charlie a go.
