I'm one of the Google Reader refugee who have found shelter in The Old Reader. Made by fellow 'victims' of Google Reader shutdown, it looks and behaves almost exactly like Google Reader.

I also tried Digg Reader but I find The Old Reader suits me better.

By VMPlayer I assume you mean VMWare Player?

In VMWare (and probably all recent computer virtualization programs) you don't need to delete and recreate the virtual machine to change virtual hardware configurations, including RAM or hard drive size, networking, and even number of processor cores. In older versions of VMWare Player you'd need to use the Command Prompt to resize virtual hard drives, but since version 3 it can also be done easily from the Virtual Machine Settings window.

It is probably necessary to note that some settings can only be changed while the VM is turned off, so if you find some disabled text box or combo box you just need to turn the VM off first and they will be enabled.

I hope this helps.

No one mentioned Photoscape yet? It's a freeware mainly for fixing & enhancing photos instead of painting/editing, so it is richer in tools for color adjustment, back light correction, red eye removal etc rather than 'micro' tools like paint brushes etc. This is probably what you need.

Here's the feature list from the website:
  • Viewer: View photos in your folder, create a slideshow
  • Editor: resizing, brightness and color adjustment, white balance, backlight correction, frames, balloons, mosaic mode, adding text, drawing pictures, cropping, filters, red eye removal, blooming, paint brush, clone stamp, effect brush
  • Batch editor: Batch edit multiple photos
  • Page: Merge multiple photos on the page frame to create one final photo
  • Combine: Attach multiple photos vertically or horizontally to create one final photo
  • Animated GIF: Use multiple photos to create a final animated photo
  • Print: Print portrait shots, carte de visites(CDV), passport photos
  • Splitter: Slice a photo into several pieces
  • Screen Capture: Capture your screenshot and save it
  • Color Picker: Zoom in on images, search and pick a color
  • Rename: Change photo file names in batch mode
  • Raw Converter: Convert RAW to JPG
  • Paper Print: Print lined, graph, music and calendar paper
  • Face Search: Find similar faces on the Internet

Hope this helps. cheesy

I'm Mr. Boring! tongue

I believe I can be even more boring. tongue

Behold:

Ubuntu 13.04 with GNOME 3.8. I like clean desktop and starry wallpaper.

[attachthumb=2]

Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. Yes, I know it's (very) outdated but hey, I got this old MacBook for free, gotta make the most out of it. tongue

This is great news! cheesy

I've been a DC lurker for years, but since I fully switched to Linux a couple years ago (plus a Mac just about a month ago), most software discussions and coding snacks here no longer apply to me. This new section will definitely change that. Thmbsup

search in the big folder + keyword ".pdf" and rank by size. then delete all the zero ko files at once

I'm totally sure that it can be done using Windows' own Windows Explorer.

By the way, what does "Ko" stand for? I've never seen anyone using that unit.

Thanks to tsaint, I tried a similar program: eViacam, and now I have a sore neck. tongue

It works well, accurate, has two click modes (dwell click and gesture click), and allows left, middle, and right mouse click as well as left mouse dragging and left mouse double click. It messes up if/while there's someone else in the camera's line of vision, though.

It was fun overall, just don't use it for more than an hour. tongue

Whoa... Now I recall that I've heard about foot controller many years ago, but I thought it was just a concept. Nice share! Thmbsup

If you're like me, you'll find talking to your computer more tiring than typing with your hands (I don't talk much).

Anyway, Windows since Vista includes built-in voice command program. You might want to try that; just open the Start Menu and search for Windows Speech Recognition. It's probably enough, but I think the best speech recognition/voice command program for Windows I've ever tried is DragonNaturallySpeaking, if you're willing to spend some money.

Another way to browse without using your hands that I can think of is by using your feet, but I doubt it's accurate or fast. tongue

Ze Frank's videos never fail to make me laugh (or sometimes cringe), especially the "True Facts About ..." series.

On an educational side, I subscribe to the obligatory MinutePhysics (and its sister MinuteEarth), PBS Idea Channel, Vsauce, and AsapSCIENCE.

Jesus, it was only down for less than 4 minutes...stop panicking people...I didn't even lose connection to it.

I wasn't panicking, I was just very curious. tongue

I noticed that certain things disappeared and broken links are everywhere.  Have you tried https?  I get most of the site that way...

I always use https whenever I can.

Anyway FB's up again from here, and here's Mashable's coverage.

Wait, I can open the mobile site from my phone but not from PC. And isup.me says the mobile site is up. How's that even possible?

Damn Mayans, it was supposed to happen on 21st.

20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Facebook seems to be erased from existence? on: December 10, 2012, 05:15:47 PM
Anyone here can open facebook.com?

I tried to open facebook.com just now and Firefox says "Firefox can't find the server at www.facebook.com." I entered facebook.com into isup.me and it says "Huh? http://www.facebook.com doesn't look like a site on the interwho."

It's like facebook vanished just like that, and I haven't found any news related to it. How can it happen to such a big name?

Why would you need to enter safe mode and restart again normally? In general it is better if you explain why you need things, because it's likely that a different solution already exists that we can point you to.

If my assumption that you are using Windows is true, then I'm sorry that I cannot help you now. I'm 400 miles away from my Windows machine, and I won't be there probably for another month.  redface

It' still a good idea, though, and I do hope someone can make this happen.  cheesy
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Unfinished Requests / Re: IDEA: List files Added or Removed and changes to plain txt files in given time on: September 09, 2012, 04:08:40 AM
It can be done with version control system, especially with decentralized ones (e.g. Git or Mercurial), probably plus a script to do commits whenever a change (file created/deleted/edited) is made.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Skype now has a "Login With Facebook" Button on: June 15, 2012, 06:19:16 AM
From what I noticed, Facebook does use some Microsoft products in it, such as Bing Translate to translate posts in foreign languages, and Office web app for viewing attached Microsoft Office files. I won't be surprised if they integrate Skype with Facebook Chat.
