Video clips like these could be handy for nerds like me.  embarassed

With regards to CPU usage, that could be true but with the improved start up speed i noticed, i guess at this point i'm ready to take the chance. Heck, it's almost just as fast as Opera 10 alpha!  Cool

Most of the tweaks i saw in this vid didn't do much for me.
But a little further into the clip, there were a few i had never seen and so i decide to give them a shot. Working on XP Home SP2, this has made a notable difference for me.  Thmbsup

Here's the homepage.

Almost forgot! It can be run from a usb device.

Picked it up from a LifeHacker tip today.

A bit late in the game... but i'm on a small network and do have access to the web.
Why doesn't URLSnooper fail to acknowledge the way?

Not sure how to define this one but i just picked up the freeware version and i think it's a keeper.

Seeing that we're interested in small software programs i thought i'd share with you.

Found it here:

But you can get it from the programmers page as well:

Darwin,

These AV programs make me go... i won't tell you where but the other day i had Kaspersky on for trial and it identified Postsmile and EssentialPIM programs as slightly to more dangerous do have and nothing about this "paws" one.  tongue
PCTools and ESET never identified these but did identify another. So? Which program should i trust?
308  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Free License for Photo Pos Pro on: November 24, 2008, 04:12:48 AM
Yup, no AV is purrrfect.
Sometimes i wonder how useful they can be...

Anyway, thanks again for the tip!   Thmbsup
309  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Free License for Photo Pos Pro on: November 23, 2008, 07:47:05 PM
Hey Bro!

Never heard of this program but am tryin' now.
PC Tools AV spotted a problem at installation: "sequence: packed molebox", whatever that means.
I put it on quarantine and the program seems to be doing fine with plenty of options to discover.

Thanks!

After a fresh install, i tried Threatfire which just created havoc.

Fortunately everything was back to normal in a flash with WinPatrol.

Now i've been looking at COMODO's free firewall and AV:
http://www.personalfirewa...odo.com/download_cis.html

Any takers on this one? Is it low on resources? Quick to update?
312  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Excellent RSS reader on: October 06, 2008, 06:53:28 PM
Have you tried www.newsgator.com (the one that you sync FeedDemon with)?
I find it slow to login but after that, it's not too bad.

Other than www.bloglines.com and that one, i'm afraid there aren't any other online feed readers.
At least, none that i know of.
313  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Excellent RSS reader on: September 28, 2008, 07:22:04 AM
I find Bloglines and GReader to be better in many ways than FeedDemon.

But mostly because you don't need to open or install another program (you're likely using your browser right?).

You can also use mouse gestures (lacking in FD).

The fact that GReader lets you view previous posts (greyed out) is pretty handy at times and don't see any delays with new posts coming about.

314  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Kingsoft Office on: September 28, 2008, 07:12:24 AM
OpenOffice3 is supposed to come out very soon.
Apparently they're working hard at incorporating an email client into it.
Anyway, Kingston Office9 seems to be shareware... and OO will always keep getting better for the same price (free!) with no registration required.

Although quite new on the scene, Chandler might be your best bet as a free alternative to your Outlook needs.

Yabutt!

Not that i want to sound like an ESET fanatic or somethin, but if my memory serves me well (i'm not the one who signs the contracts) it has support for most (if not all) systems.
316  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AntiVirus with decent anti-spyware (realtime) detection on: September 09, 2008, 02:47:08 PM
Darwin,

I guess there's no way to always keep our old computers (notebooks) at par with all the enhancements that are brought upon with the ever evolving technologies that most often require quite a bit more "juice".  ohmy

Anyway, if it's any indication of the way other programs behave, AVG8 Network Edition would take about an hour (if not more) to do a full scan of my notebook (4 years old).
317  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AntiVirus with decent anti-spyware (realtime) detection on: September 08, 2008, 03:19:08 PM
My pleasure Darwin!

Let us know how it works out for you ay!

Eset in Canada apparently grant a discount to non-profits.
With AVG8 taking the bloatware street our group plans on going with Eset as soon as our present contract is over.

I've been testing it for three weeks now and it is just fine. Low on resources and quite fast to update and scan. Very non-intrusive. Can't wait for the changeover!

Confronted to FF3, it simply pales out.

No extensions (can't live without Adblock and Firegestures!).
Poor bookmarking options (no keywords).

Not for me.

I noticed that Evernote has one over there as well.
Very well done! I must say!!   Thmbsup

Yes, have heard of SpywareTerminator but have not read many favorable comments with regards to ClamAV.
322  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: PC Tools Free Offers. Get them now!!! on: August 11, 2008, 07:28:55 AM
AVG is cutting out of Win98

After a second look at NOD32, i did notice that the Business Edition supports Win98.
Hope they continue to do so. Not everyone needs or feels the need to upgrade their PC's.
323  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: PC Tools Free Offers. Get them now!!! on: August 07, 2008, 07:04:51 PM
Boring post but i have to ask, are there any AV programs that still work with Win98?

I'd like to jump to NOD32 but it doesn't work on that platform.
324  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Can you live with *just* opera? on: July 29, 2008, 09:40:46 AM
Yabut!

FF3 has a little star at the right end to indicate if it's in your folder and you can modify the bookmark directly via that star.

Also, FF3 has an icon at the left side that offers you website info (if made available).

Opera doesn't do this (yet!).

 
325  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Can you live with *just* opera? on: July 29, 2008, 07:00:45 AM
With all due respect for Opera fans, the new FF3 ahsomethingamigger brings bookmarking to a whole new age.
I have around 1,000 bookmarks and i find this new url box enhancement along with Foxmarks backup service to be an excellent solution to an essential part of surfing.

Another complimentary service is the ever improving Evernote for note taking. Fans must like the fact that they can save a whole webpage in FF with just one click.
