I ran the free version for quite a while and was very impressed with it.

Now I am running the Firewall Pro version on 5 of my computers.

Problem is I have licenses for 6. Please don't let me build another computer. Wink

I ordered the parts for my latest and maybe last computer on May 21, 2012.

i5, SSD, 1G video card, 8G Corsair memory Win 7 Pro 64 bit.

Bought all the parts and OS from Newegg and it cost a bundle.

That's gonna be it for a while.

Most of the time I use the Start button to stop the computer.

Just did that for the first time in years.

Should always do it. smiley

Thanks for the reminder.

Hi there. My name is Joe and I live in Ojai, Southern California. I am 78 years old and have been retired almost 19 years.

I was born in Norwalk, CT and left home after High School to join the Air Force. Served for 4 years, a good portion of which was spent in what was called French Morocco. The end of my brief career was spent in Washington D.C.

After the Air Force I went to college and then on to four different semiconductor companies.

In 1960, I hopped in my car and drove to Southern California to work at another semiconductor company.

I married a young lady by the name of Karen in 1964 and we had a son, Joe Junior.

In 1977, I resigned my job and bought a retail electronics store here in Ojai. Sold the business in 1986.

Karen died of cancer in 1988. She was 46.

After that, I took the position of Purchasing Manager and head flunky for a local golf bag business. Yearly sales were 13 million. I hated this place almost from the day I took the job but I was 55 years old and try to find a job at 55. I resigned (retired) on September 3, 1993 - one day short of 4 years and 1 month at the place.

I must have had some skill because two other companies asked me to consult for them which I did (of course).

Then after that I really retired and have lived here alone since then.

In my retail electronics store we did sell computers but I knew very little about them. Anyway, I bought  my first Windows 3.1 computer in November of 1995. It had all of 16 Megs of memory and cost US $1700.

Since then, I have built several computers and have 5 desktops in use right now. I need 5 desktops like I need a hole in my head. Maybe I do. Grin

My latest build was my first REAL computer - Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, i5, 8G of memory, SSD. beautiful machine and cost a lot of money. I hope I live long enough to get some use out of it.

That's about it.

I think some of you have seen my Basset Hound buddy, Fred. He is good company but is spoiled rotten. I have no idea who did that to him.

He's a great friend and basset number 4.

Very cute~! cheesy

I don't know if I'd ever want a basset hound though. How much does puppy howl?
Not bad at all. smiley

Home edition looks fine to me.

Thanks again.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: yet another file manager thread... on: July 04, 2012, 11:57:59 PM
i really like XYplorer. It's a fast, feature-full no-nonsense file explorer.
You can find the differences between the Pro and Home versions here: http://www.xyplorer.com/features.php.
Also, you can download the trial and test both of them (the trial version can also emulate the home version)!

Thanks for that. I am already trying the Pro version but it's probably more than I need. I'll give the Home version a try.

Really appreciated.

I'm about ready to spring for XYplorer.

Luckily, I have PowerDesk 8 working on Windows 7 64bit but I have noticed a few error warnings although it seems to be working.

I know that there is a Home version of XYplorer but have no idea if I can live with it. I don't need all of the features of Pro but what am I giving up if I select home?

Any experts out there?

Thanks
