1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: Today at 08:56:21 AM
Don't know if you have had a chance to glance at new desktop version in present Windows 10 Preview releases.
Looks nice! Reminds me a bit of Evernote with its preview icons.

At basic level, it's a good alternative to Acronis True Image 11 which is incompatible with Windows 10 Preview.  smiley
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Panda Free Antivirus 2015 anyone using? on: May 26, 2015, 09:02:10 PM
Was recommended to it by a friend at TechSupportAlert.com who uses it for Windows even if he is mostly a Linux user.
But i did use it in the past, especially after dropping AVG and ESET (the later to my regret - but no free version there).
Presently using 360 Total Security (even in light of latest negative press) but that doesn't take away my appreciation for Panda.

BTW, i skip toolbar installation etc. when i do install Panda.

Never had any issues with Panda AV free version.
An occasional ad popup, otherwise very light and pretty fast for scans.
5  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Antivirus: Quick Thoughts 2015 on: May 20, 2015, 08:07:57 PM
ESET was my fav but have gone over to the "free" side with Panda or 360 Total Security.
Have just re-installed pc and debating between the two.

Don't think it makes much difference between free or shareware AV since from my past experience, they often fail to neutralize attacks all the time or in real time if you prefer.

I find something like MalwareBytes to be the best complimentary asset to conteract nasties.
Would be nice if ESET had a minimum free version though.  smiley

Excellent find Ian! Thank you!  Thmbsup

Thought i was subscribed to this thread... where is that darn bookmark/subscribe to thread link now?

Good for you!  smiley
Have you tried Opera's latest chromium based?
Here's what GHacks reported in a recent article.
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Opera now supports DuckDuckGo on: March 30, 2015, 07:57:55 AM
Was wondering about just that this a.m.!
Actually, why Vivaldi didn't do the move yet.
So, Opera beat them to it.

The beta or "next" version should install all Chrome extensions without any hassle.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: MxNitro Browser on: March 23, 2015, 08:58:35 PM
Maxthon has been a funny adventure.
They've got 4 different browsers and none are finished enough to say they are polished products.
They made this MxNitro 'cause their users voted speed as their top prefered feature in a new browser.
Go figure!

Maybe no.5 will be one with decent addons...

Speed enhancement seems to be the big promise with Windows 10 as per this article, but the free upgrade would appear to go back to Windows 7 only:
"Pour la première fois, Windows 10 sera pendant un an offert comme une mise à jour gratuite pour les utilisateurs des deux versions antérieures, Windows 7 et Windows 8.1."

It's interesting to note that Makulu's dev has recently taken the Ubuntu Unity direction why Linux Mint seems to be planning the opposite. With Ubuntu's ongoing expansion efforts you wonder what Clem has in mind for the long term?

@MilesAhead, didn't know Windows 10 could be installed on old PCs too.
If so, then that would be a first for sure!
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux Mint LMDE "Betsy" Mate and Cinnamon are out! on: March 18, 2015, 01:08:10 PM
As expected, this latest LM distro has its quirks too.
Tweaking Linux distros i find almost endless compared to what you can do with Windows.

What is nice with LinuxMint and Ubuntu is that they work pretty well out of the box, have drivers for most important peripherals and can thus revive old PCs for a few more "miles ahead".  tongue
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux Mint LMDE "Betsy" Mate and Cinnamon are out! on: March 18, 2015, 08:54:33 AM
Ya, and i was almost first to post on LM's blog too!
Have been patiently waiting for this version.
Always liked LinuxMint and Clem sure is doing an excellent job!  Thmbsup

Not sure if this is an issue but CPU has been hanging around 50C

Otherwise, this distro was a piece of cake to install and it is truly fast!!

Based directly on Debian (not on Ubuntu).

Did i beat 40hz to post about this?  Wink
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Stuff you need to know on: March 12, 2015, 12:31:36 PM
True, but we all can see the need of an occasional fable...
The other day i went looking of a song i enjoyed as a young boy, something that had the words "sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere." A childish song for sure, but as a boy it just uplifted my heart and filled it with joy as i contemplated a blue sky on my uncles backyard swing.

I don't know how people can spend their time watching stories about living dead... must be true stories since these programs are almost everywhere on tv.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Stuff you need to know on: March 10, 2015, 08:07:38 AM
Not that i believe in the scientificity of it all but i did enjoy some like:
30. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Helps us to keep things in perspective.

Then again, do you believe in the scientificity of all the information the mainstream medias bash out at us everyday?
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Stuff you need to know on: March 10, 2015, 08:01:30 AM
A friend fooled me with the title of this composition.

 weight is determined by their mother.

 everyday, it would take over 20 years to try them all.
 
 12. You can survive without eating for weeks, but you will only
 live 11 days without sleeping.
 
 13. People who laugh a lot are healthier than those who don’t.
 
 14. Laziness and inactivity kills just as many people as smoking.

Just installed StartPage plugin for FARR and it is working fine. Just as good as DDG for sure!
But, not as quick as Bing desktop search app.
It's okay.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 12:13:55 PM
Didn't want to override you on anything Waith808.
I saw various posts but none that were specific that i was thinking of.
Although it is relatively easy to set DDG as search engine on Vivaldi, i haven't tried it on Google Chrome.

DDG is improving (can't say that much for Yahoo).
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / DuckDuckGo as viable Open Source builder on: March 06, 2015, 08:42:59 AM
We all know how Google made its way to fame and fortune.
We also know that is no longer as "good" as we once thought it was or would be...

How about considering DuckDuckGo as an alternative for better privacy, "open source" as well as a community oriented service? https://duck.co/
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 04, 2015, 01:46:18 PM
That was a full course meal Ian!
A web clipper add-on like Evernotes' for Firefox would be a nice addition.

Thanks again!  thumbs up
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 03, 2015, 07:58:19 AM
Using the one that came with either Office or Outlook 2013 (both shareware - not expensive enough?).

Update: CliptoOneNote addon does the trick just fine but would expect better from native OneNote clipping or printing options.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: March 02, 2015, 01:51:29 PM
Do hope our OneNote guru can answer this one.
Is there a way to clip notes from webpage to OneNote and preserve hyperlinks that are present within?
Have printed and emailed entire webpage to ON but neither have active hyperlinks (look just like one "picture").
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Pale Moon browser now available on Android on: March 01, 2015, 01:32:48 PM
Palemoon is good on Android although Dolphin and UC browser are excellent too (the later i find fastest)!
Apparently Maxthon is more secure in WiFi environments like the airport.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: February 18, 2015, 12:18:37 PM
Thank you Ian for your generous time and most elaborate response!  Thmbsup
A ctrl+A type hotkey would have been most appropriate. Next version maybe?

Would be nice if Microsoft could integrate a bit better their overall search for ON.
In time...
