Security issues aside, you could also purchase an external drive enclosure and install you old drive in it. Then you'd have a nice backup drive to use. I'd tell them "nice try guys" and ask for your old drive back. Wink


Now that's an interesting one! I say!
Thanks a bunch 40hz!   smiley

PlainOldFavorites has the same exact design as in IE.  I don't know about keyboard shortcuts as I have never used such functionality.  Sorry.

Jojo,

I believe IE7PRO and Maxthon (freeware) have this kind of option.
You simply assign a shortcut to your link and type it in the url address box.
Say you bookmarked www.google.com
You can assign any letter in the keyword section of your Firefox bookmarked page so, say you assign the letter "g" then all you have to do is type "g" in your url box, hit enter and you're taken over to www.google.com Neat hé? It can be really handy for extra long url addresses.

Thanks guys, your input is much appreciated!

Indeed, i was thinking about that. What if my new drive goes caput? At least i would have an old one to work with.
Will try to get the old one back.

Hi,

Excuse me but I didn't quite know how to formulate the title.

They've recently setup a new hard disk in my notebook (gone from 40G to 80G) and i had just installed XPHome (with no data) on the ol' 40. After they finished the work, they failed to give me back my disk and i forgot to ask them for it.
I'm out of town and was wondering if it was worth asking it back?
I now realize that they also made a few bucks on it (by keeping it) but i can live with that.
305  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Let go of your bookmarks! on: July 13, 2008, 04:38:55 AM
jojo,

I liked your comments about link checking.
Does IE favs contain keyword shortcuts? That's what i like about FF! You can add always add a keyword say "dcf" for the forum here and when using OpenBook extension you get that perfect partner to manage your bookmarks with ease.
Foxmarks is great to sync your bookmarks online and they have an alpha testing program now to sync with IE and I'm sure it will be out of alpha stage soon.

Dats my 2 cents for today!   tongue

dan: had you previously saved the password?

Good point!
It's a problem when you dab with more than one browser.
I did however have a problem with my.opera.com not keeping my p.w. in the last builds.
Had to login every time. Seems to be okay now.

Did a quick restart just to make sure Opera kept my DCF p.w. & login and it's okay too.

Now if Opera can only fix the panel icons position.
It's a bug that has been reported three builds ago.
307  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 27, 2008, 05:26:18 PM
I just installed it over previous build.
Can login no problem but isn't the wand supposed to remember the p.w. for me?
308  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 14, 2008, 12:35:52 PM
K-Meleon is good if you still have to run Win98.
Firefox3 no longer supports it.  thumb down

On my XP Home SP2, Opera 9.5 has shown to be quicker than Firefox3 at startup and page rendering.
309  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 13, 2008, 05:30:54 PM
Lashiec is sheek!

Do you have a weblog with software reviews?
Opera sure is fast! In between Firefox3RC3 i'm having a tough time seeing which one is faster.
Is it possible to tweak a notebook hooked up to a network which has a determined speed?
Anyway, Opera feels like it has the edge with regards to speed on the web (for now).
The search capabilities in both browsers is just marvellous!
310  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera 9.5 on: June 13, 2008, 07:08:48 AM
I agree with felixproductions, sync tool needs some improvement.
It's been a few times now that i've re-installed Opera browser and every time i get a bunch of duplicates that should not be there as i had deleted them.

The notes sync seems to be holding good though.

9.5's new theme is too dark.
They should have left the default theme in, at least as an option.

The revamped panel has problems of its' own that are still yet to be resolved.
Two "x" to close it and only one works.
The panel icons are no longer in "justified" position so they look bulky and ackward (especially the new theme!).   ohmy

This is probably redundant too, but when you save an image, Snapshot's interface is always in the way.

(It would be useful if there were options to directly upload snapshots to online services like ImageShack etc.)

Hope you're not too overstressed today Mouser!

That's my 2 cents for the day!

Nosh, Laschiec,

Do appreciate your generous help and will take a more detailed look at it after this weekend to see how i can get the upgraded drivers hooked up properly. You heard of "Radar Sync"? Apparently Chris Pirillo has recommended it and it really does find updates for drivers. But the installation instructions are another story...
314  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Help needed with NVidia upgrade on: June 05, 2008, 07:51:50 PM
Thanks for dropping bye Laschiec!
I somehow managed to finally remove upgraded Nvidia drive and re-installed original one.
Everything is okay but the sound was pretty nifty on the upgrade.
Wish i could have kept it. Sad
315  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Help needed with NVidia upgrade on: June 05, 2008, 05:37:42 PM
Hope someone will have a solution to this problem.

I just upgraded Nvidia driver and the sound is now coming out of the notebook as well as the earphones.
Usually when earphones are on the sounds are supposed to cut off from the notebook right?  huh
316  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera and fancy AJAX sites: not much luck on my side of things... on: June 05, 2008, 05:44:29 AM
Steeladept,

According one of the quoted Opera posts, it probably depends on which version you're using,
"The CBC's comments work with Opera beta 9981. They don't work with the later 10005 or 10014 builds. Win 98SE."

I've been using the last two.
9.5 is supposed to be coming out soon, we'll see how that one fares.
317  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera and fancy AJAX sites: not much luck on my side of things... on: June 04, 2008, 07:43:24 PM
Yes, i had no problems with your first link either steeladept.

I did and still do have problems visiting www.cbc.ca
Some script is giving it a hassle.

Update:
Did a search at Opera's forum and disabled javascript. Seems to be doing fine now.

Allen, pardon my ignorance, but what does MDI stand for?

I like Opera, it's almost my default.
Perhaps 9.5 will help me make the definite step.
If there's one thing that i appreciate is the fact that the widgets are functional with any build (something that would be nice for Firefox extensions) but i don't find them that useful.
Speed is still in Opera's territory but Firefox3 is catching up (in fact i think it now has surpassed Opera).
319  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Running multiple commands with one alias on: May 29, 2008, 06:59:16 AM
If i understand this properly, it means that i can and will be eventually able to access Firefox bookmarks (not IE) with one shortcut key?   tellme

Carol,

Guess that answers my question!
So, if the security issue is or rather, has shifted from the essential AV program the next and likely more important asset is a good browser like Opera and Firefox with AdblockPlus extension added on to it. There are other aids like McAfee site advisor extension for Firefox, did i miss something else?
321  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The last time your AntiVirus saved you! on: May 24, 2008, 12:24:40 PM
As we await Josh with his comments about AA eh!  tongue

I don't want to go away from the AV issue,
but from the looks of it, the major threats are no longer "really" related to AV issues.
Perhaps someone could give his/her 2cents worth about SpySweeper?
322  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The last time your AntiVirus saved you! on: May 24, 2008, 04:38:36 AM
BetaNews describes AdAware8 as an AV program at freeware level (correction needed i believe).
Anyone use this program with success?
323  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The last time your AntiVirus saved you! on: May 23, 2008, 07:09:23 PM
Its hard to remember the last time I had an anti-virus program installed on my PC.  Sometime in the mid to late 90s I would guess.  Back then it wasn't as big a problem and these days I know how to not get infected.  I don't suggest people roll the way I do though.

I don't think you're the only one to do so.
With AVG8 hogging up so much energy I've decided to do without (even though i've tried AVAST free edition which did quite well), so i've been doing away with one now for about a week.
If you share your PC with others, then that can make it a must.
Haven't had a virus attack in about a year (then again, it was AVG's own mistake which mistook a k-meleon.exe file as a virus - of all things!).
324  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox extensions for Minefield on: May 21, 2008, 12:23:40 PM
mwang, you're an ace!  Cool

Although the "show experimental addons" was a bit tricky to find, i did make it.
Add Bookmark Here2 did the trick (no need for OpenBook). Thanks!

BTW, Mouse Gestures has been updated and seems to be doing just fine.

Now if i can find an extension for my Thunderbird contacts that syncs just fine with GMail...
We're off hunting again!

 tongue
325  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox extensions for Minefield on: May 20, 2008, 06:45:11 PM
OpenBook i find offers more options to adding bookmarks, keyword field for example.

I think you get that with the standard Add Bookmark dialog with FF3. No?

I'm afraid not.

I'm using Diigo's bookmarking system but somehow still prefer FX's, especially with new tagging method and Foxmarks beta which supports this new bookmarking way. It always faster to find what your looking for now with the url field acting like LocationBar2 and more!   Thmbsup

I'm also using Diigo, and I like it in general, but not sure if I'll stick with it yet. The new bookmark system of FF3 is apparently giving ruse to a horde of new extensions. Many of them are now marked as experimental. We'll see how many of them mature in the end.

Oh?! It would be nice to know a little more about these novelties. 

With extensions checking disabled, i now have an issue with tabs interface.
The "x" to close them no longer appears and i don't feel like going through the safe mode process to find out which extension is giving the problem. Have work to do!

Update: by chance, it turns out a skin was making the "x" disappearing from the tabs.

Does your mouse have a middle button? I close tabs with it all the time. Not sure what makes it working, though: Firegesture, Tab Mix Plus, or something else.

Middle click to close tabs?
I like that! I recently discovered that you could open links to a new tab with middle click but this one's new for me. Thanks!
