1  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: which phone? on: December 16, 2014, 10:59:59 PM
If you're used to the "old" Windows phones i.e. anything up to 6.5 then you might be disappointed by the way MS has removed much of the functionality you'd be used to. I'm referring here to capabilities such as syncing to your PC (in particular email, calendar, contacts). These functions have gradually been removed since iteration 7. If you use a phone as a phone and a PIM (rather than an entertainment device) then I'd say go for Android. I have a Lumia 520 and for a lower price range phone it's acceptable and does what it sets out to do OK, but after using earlier Windows phones I'm very disappointed with this one. Also the apps no longer seem to be of the quality which was available for the older OS. The other thing which annoys me about all the major stores is the way you can't really do refined searches and 99% of free apps come with ads or limitations which the vendors don't reveal until after you've installed the app.

Hey Jesse,
Made me cry too knowing your heartache, loss, grief. Take care.

Could someone clarify for the dumb end user aka me.
Are VPNs useful for doing banking in public hot spots?

I'll be giving this a try for sure. Something I've often longed for is the ability to use OneNote in my favorite browser (Opera). Is this possible?

Thanks Kip. Sorry I've taken a while to respond. Appreciate your suggestion. DarkScreen & other apps at this site were most helpful.

I've been doing this for my partner (migraine sufferer) & I didn't quite understand what she wanted. Which was to simply dim the whole screen. So now I'm using DeskTop Lighter. Apart from not being able to return to the default (calibrated) setting it fits the bill. Thanks everyone for your support.

I used the Zorro installer. I'll give the portable version a shot. Thanks for the suggestion.

9 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Screen Mask on: August 15, 2012, 12:28:45 AM
Thanks for taking the time to point this solution out. I gave it a whirl & it doesn't seem to have the ability to adjust "opening size" on the fly so not so good for my needs.

Thanks for your help tomos & jgpaiva. Of course thanks to Skrommel et al for their work in creating this elegant piece of software.
11 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Screen Mask on: July 04, 2012, 04:32:44 AM
That looks promising. Is it possible to set hot keys to activate & deactivate?
Thanks for pointing this one out.
12 Software / Post New Requests Here / Screen Mask on: July 04, 2012, 01:57:06 AM
Am after something which will allow me to mask all of a screen except for the part (define-able area) needing to be read. Would be good if transparency adjustment was included along with a color picker. I have tried Zorro and found it buggy on my Win7 system.
Not sure if this will be a simple task. No programming knowledge so apologies in advance if this doesn't fit here. Thanks in advance to anyone out there tempted by this idea.

I have grandchildren in Canada. Anyone care to recommend a Canadian or USA mail order business for Easter themed treats?

I use TOff. Works OK for me. Hope it works for you.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Skype version for Pocket PC 2003 OS version 4.20 on: August 13, 2010, 10:07:00 AM
Hi Everyone,
I'm trying to find a PPC compatible version of Skype. My PDA runs Win CE 4.20. The downloads I've found are for more recent versions of Windows Mobile. If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.

Here in Australia most public 'puters are set up with limited rights i.e. not admin so you can't actually launch apps from a usb. Similar in the USA /Europe?

I'm using this. May not appeal to power users, but is good enough for the average home user

18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Macrium Reflect (Free) - Possible to write an Overwrite Command? on: February 19, 2010, 10:56:12 PM
The partition which has my MR images will hold 5 images. Would it be possible (and if so how) to write a command which would tell MR to overwrite the oldest image when the partition became full?


P.S. Does anyone know of an on-line primer for learning about creating run commands?

Thanks again.

New(ish) player in the field is GoAruna offering unlimited space and a slightly easier desktop upload process than ADrive.
Also note that Backupify is offering free accounts until end of January 2010.

We finally gave up & turned the subtitles on for "The Wire" - all that,mostly unintelligible, Baltimore argot meant that my partner was constantly asking me "what did they say?". Still one of our fave shows tho'.

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Anyone actually use windows system restore if so,does it work. on: November 17, 2009, 10:37:48 PM
System Restore has worked for me but ,as with all things, you can't rely on it to get you out of all nasty situations. I use ERUNT as another form of system restore. (I'm a belt & braces sort of guy when it comes to 'puters). Most of you will have already heard of it, no doubt
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / RAM & Virtualisation on: October 20, 2009, 10:38:31 PM
I've read that Win XP 32 bit can only see/use (I'm no ubergeek  embarassed so not sure which is the correct adjective) between 3 -3.5 GiB. If there's more than that installed is it possible to use this "extra" memory to create a virtual drive or to assign it to a virtualised process such as a virtual OS?

Thanks in advance.
