Anand, maybe you're not seeing it, as a guest would see it? As a guest I was thinking, the words "TellWhenDone1.6.0.zip (451k)" surely must give a file if clicked - but it was a dead end. Instead one has to press a microscopic and unnamed blue arrow situated far out in the margin. I expect more people than me don't understand or even notice that arrow.

Sarin Samuel, will you please tell how you're connected to deskshare.com? You have posted thrice, and all three post are recommending deskshare programs, and deskshare programs only. Please don't get this wrong; you are allowed to recommend your own programs, but you ought to be straight with us and tell if it's your creation, or how you're affiliated.

Btw, for FireFox it's important to install µblock from the GitHub link I posted, it's not updated anywhere near regularly from the official addon repository.

-does this mean, f0dder, that you are recommending the beta versions?

Pardon my French, I think uBlock is youBlock, not microBlock.

we skipped the version 6 news quite suddenly. "Macrium Reflect v6 Workstation" is on intro-offer for the rest of the month: > €61.00 Introductory Price ends 30th April 2015. Full price from 1st May 2015 will be $75 USD / €74 Euro / £53 GBP.< The word "Workstation" means good old "Pro" -("Support will not be provided to customers who use Home Edition in a business environment")- but as said by Jibz, there is no difference between Home and Workstation, except right now a buck...: "Macrium Reflect v6 Home Edition": €60.00, or 4 Pack Home Licence €119.00

AltGr+163 also gives me £  thumbs up
Actually Windows Character Map is saying Alt+163. But I guess that would be on a normal PC, because on my laptop I have to use AltGr instead.

-hey, kalos, this means you can use Ctrl+Alt+163 = £  thumbs up

You simply have to remember the number 163  Wink

... using the situation to tell about a giveaway from sharewareonsale and Webroot:
"Sale ends in 1 day 22½ hrs or until sold out": http://sharewareonsale.co...reanywhere-antivirus-sale

Is the program working via some virtual cloud? I don't know yet, I was so far just drawn by the timing and how lite it seems to be.

I am amazed. I had a strange feeling that it was not necessary to uninstall or even stop my antivirus, before installing WebRoot. Flashes from the past, security related programs freezing the computer when fighting to be the boss. But I took a d e e p breath, and installed the 798KB program. And I was right!! WebRoot is running at the same time as Microsoft Security Essentials, and they are not fighting each other (yet)! Maybe this shows that WebRoot not really is "here" (on my PC), but is working via some virtual cloud?

And Yes, it only took 5 minutes to install and set up.

Modified:
In order to register and get a free license, one must follow the "My Account" -button, and be both humble and patient. I am not, so I have not registered for a key. Example: After creating a password with AT LEAST NINE (9) characters, you are next ordered to:>Enter a memorable word or number, using a minimum of 6 characters (excluding < >). Choose a code that is easy to remember, because you'll be asked to enter two characters of it every time you log in. For example, the system might ask you to enter the first and fifth characters of this code.< And then you are told to also create a security question!!

Of course I did not accept all this, and have now removed the thing

17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: PixiShot photo manager (from WebSite-Watcher author) on: April 13, 2015, 11:14:58 AM
In my square little mind it is important that the full name is: PixiShot - Photo Manager and Editor
-because I would never want a manager, but I do want an editor ;-) But will I want this at €35?  undecided

  • PixiShot is derived from: "pictures I shot" ⇒ "pics I shot" ⇒ "pix I shot" ⇒ PixiShot

A snippet from "Features" (http://www.pixishot.com/features.htm):

Quote
PixiShot is not the right tool for you...

    if you're looking for a RAW development tool. PixiShot can only edit JPG and 8bit TIF images. RAW files can however be displayed.

    if you're looking for a database solution where you can search all your images for certain tags. PixiShot doesn't use a database where all your images are stored. There's no need to import images into a database, just open a folder on your hard disk to view and work with your images.

    if you want to save your images with certain color profiles. PixiShot uses sRGB, images with other color profiles are converted to sRGB automatically.

I have seen, with my own eyes, systems get infected in real-time while the MSE system tray icon stayed green the entire time. Proceeding to then do an in-depth scan turning up *nothing* unusual all while browser windows are popping up on your screen stating your computer *may* be infected, dialogs for bogus Adobe Flash updates, etc.

-terrible!  ohmy  Thanks for warning.

So I chose to remove it all, lock, stock and barrel, and go back to MSE.
...
My desktop PC is currently "only" protected with Windows' inbuilt security: the firewall and Defender.

I am guessing your last claim maybe is the actual one; right now you're not using MSE, but Windows Firewall and Defender?  undecided

I am using MSE (and Windows Firewall), and I like it.

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: So, what pdf reader app is your fav? on: April 09, 2015, 12:40:07 PM
I'm doing even better than you Curt - using the portable version from 2011

-hehe, tomos. Now why risk anything, when the old one already is doing a good job?

-------------------------

Almost every day I will click "Print", and as I don't have a printer, this is "Print to pdf file". And because the print job was an article from the Internet, there is very often too much gibberish on the bottom part of the last page. Quite often so much that I want to be able to click "Delete page", when the viewer is on the last page.

However, Tracker's new FREE editor does not offer to delete pages from a pdf file:

[attachimg=1]


-but such a feature is the very reason I am using the PRO version of the old viewer:

[attachimg=2]


So, why I want to update? Maybe only because it now is more than 3 years old?  embarassed
So far I am sticking to the old PRO viewer!
