OS X crashes just as much as Windows. There are just as many mysterious, "unfixable" problems on a Mac as there are on a Windows PC. If you want to switch because you like the way the OS works on a Mac better then great. Go forth and enjoy it. If you want to switch because you want a more reliable computer you may be disappointed.

Amen.  I've had veritable *nightmares* using the Mac with problems.  Not that I haven't had them on Windows, but just goes to show that they are computers, and computers have problems at times.

Dont mean to be cruel to any mac fans but I'm reassured to hear that.

I believe your posts here have been removed before & they will surely be removed again unless you announce your affiliation in each post where you recommend your software.

@tomos
Sorry and thank you, didn't know that announcing the affiliation is necessary in this thread as well.
After all, most posters here do not do it.
Thanks for adding that smiley
Most posters here are not recommending their own software.
If you make a post recommending your own product (or one you are affiliated with) it is necessary to state your affiliation. If you see another post that does not do this* you can use the 'report to moderater' link (in bottom right corner of all posts).

Otherwise you give the impression you're spamming which isn't much good for your product - not around here at any rate Wink

* It's usually pretty obvious who's 'advertising' and, as I said above, those posts get removed fairly promptly.

[edit] I've just reported the post previous to your's above (by mioan) so that will probably be removed shortly [/edit]

#5 would be wonderful if it holds up -- it seems grossly unfair to me that you can't sell software 2nd hand the way you can anything else you buy outright.

I read once that Adobe offer a 'service' where you can transfer the licence to someone else. Dont know if that's true or not - I'm no fan of Adobe but if that's true I'd think a bit less poorly of them...

Out of curiosity, does Volery not have (or at least give you the chance to opt-out of ) any of the usual toolbar "includes" - or will they just get installed automatically along with the main programs?

The service installs the software with default settings and says “no” to any extra crapware (like browser toolbars) the installers might try to sneak in.

5182  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Basic Question on Photo Tagging on: October 10, 2009, 03:02:01 PM
I downloaded Exifer's successor Geosetter seeing as it's being updated and it seems to work similar to how tsaint described exifer above (with added options re GPS data which can be easily ignored).

With GeoSetter you can tag an image with Category, Supplemental Categories & Keywords
I've never tagged images before so I'm wondering, could I also use the keywords to describe the quality of the image e.g.
People | Family/Occasion/etc. | Person's Name/[RATING]
could even give it a rating e.g. 1 to 5.

Idea being I can later filter by image quality as well as content.
Does that sound feasible ?  tellme

(I'm putting the cart ahead of the horse here a bit - I havent even installed software yet that can read tags embarassed maybe I should go do that now, I have an older copy of AcDsee that I think will do as much as I need)
5183  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Basic Question on Photo Tagging on: October 10, 2009, 11:18:54 AM
Hi Lutz_,

Other programs doing this are IdImager, Studioline Photo, Helicon Photo Safe, Acdsee (I guess only the professional version), ....

Which one, in your opinion, will work better with a "huge" collection?
Do they support nested tags and complex searches?

might be worth sending Lutz a PM (he probably hasnt seen your post)

FWIW the author of Exifer (that tsaint recommends above for quickly adding tags), well, he says

Quote
I can especially recommend IMatch which I've been using for about 3 years now as a database solution for organizing my images. It's not free, but it does almost everything which can be done with images - in other words, in my opinion it's absolutely worth the money!!!
but I dont know when that recommendation was made...

[edit] although I see CWuestefeld doesnt recommend it above [/edit]

okay, thanks. i'll give it a try - maybe. i've since been shown a few things about how harmful caffeine can be - so i may just forget about what i said earlier (the caffeine powder i ordered has arrived so i guess i should try it - looks like you can do yourself some harm with it).

I'm reminded of a remedy I got for flu in a small country supermarket about 20 years ago - I think it was called 'Mrs Cullen's Powders' and consisted of powdered aspirin and caffeine that you had to snort - I cant remember, you had to mix it with water I guess tongue
It came wrapped in paper like a tiny envelope (also suspicious looking).

[/i] Also, is there a thread here, or a forum somewhere, where people share buttons / commands that they have made?

I suspect you will need to go to the Dopus forum for that (there's the odd tip scattered about here but not much really)

On the "Drives" toolbar:
- left click on a drive button opens in the left lister
- right click on a drive button opens in the right lister

Yes that's a correct interpretation. To do this, you need to add the 'multifunc' argument to the drives button.

Enter customize mode and you'll find the drives button shrinks down to a single item, edit that item so that the command is:

Go DRIVEBUTTONS=multifunc

The multifunc argument will force the lister into dual mode if it's not already in it when you right click to open a drive.

There are a number of other arguments which can be used here, seperate them with a comma. For example, my hdd button is:

Go DRIVEBUTTONS=hideempty,-ghmn,multifunc

Which does the following:

- Hides Empty Drives (usb etc)
- Filters out CD Drive  (they're shown on another toolbar for me)
sounds great!

I'd thought I'd like it (Helvetimail) but I actually found it harder to read than the straight-forward minimalist theme (not sure what the font there is?)

P.S. Where are you working? I could swear that I saw the same settings as yours on some training video recently Wink

they must have copied from one of my screenshots here at dc Wink

macs also use a very lite grey -
maybe they copied me too cheesy
5191  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Do you use any Desktop Theme Software on Windows? on: October 07, 2009, 02:41:58 PM
not me -- i prefer the plain minimalist windows 2000 (Windows Classic) theme.  makes me feel all calm inside smiley
I had the same thoughts for years but since I found SlanXP2 theme I changed my mind...
SlanXP2 theme looks good,
maybe a bit dark for my taste http://lassekongo83.devia...m/art/SlanXP-2-0-51492944

I usually use the classic theme as well - but I dont like the default grey especially, and I tend to mess around with the colours on top every now & again

Overall, the company is a leading proponent of scareware for their registry cleaner garbage.

Last week I was checking out csrss.exe (cant remember why but unimportant here anyway)
Uniblue's site first of all says it's a trojan and that it should be removed:

Quote
1) csrss.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.
Then they offer a scan,
and only then do the let us know that it's removal will probably cause BSOD's (sounds like it might cause a lot worse even!)

Quote
2) The Microsoft Client Server Runtime Server subsystem utilizes the process csrss.exe for managing the majority of the graphical instruction sets under the Microsoft Windows operating system. As such Csrss.exe provides the critical functions of the operating system, and its termination can result in the Blue Screen of Death being displayed [etc.]

5195  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: BlueScreenView by NirSoft - find driver causing blue screen on: October 05, 2009, 03:13:23 PM
one more question undecided

First a summary:
1) there is onboard sound on the mobo but when I got the PC I got a cheap soundcard put in it.
2) soundcard driver is (I believe) causing trouble (and always has).
3) I disabled soundcard driver/software (can't figure now how to get the onboard hardware working)

the question is - will I have to open the box & disconnect the soundcard (or do anything else?) before the mobo sounds can be made to work ?
thanks for any help Kiss

5197  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: BlueScreenView by NirSoft - find driver causing blue screen on: October 05, 2009, 10:36:02 AM
I'm a little confused, Tomos. You say there are CMedia audio drivers installed on your system, but keep saying you have a Realtek soundcard. Those are two different companies & a Realtek soundcard isn't going to use CMedia drivers.

apologies for the confusion - the soundcard is TerraTec (I got it wrong earlier)
The onboard sound on the mobo is from Realtek

I tried what 40hz suggested & disabled the Terratec drivers and have yet to reboot
5198  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: BlueScreenView by NirSoft - find driver causing blue screen on: October 04, 2009, 02:27:10 PM
it has directed my towards an Audio driver

I've had numerous problems with RealTek High Definition Audio drivers at various times.

Usually occurred right after I loaded a "recommended" update.

Might try rolling them back if you've recently updated. Thmbsup

I thought it actually was a realtek sound card I have that I have never been happy with (I could remove the card & use onboard sound but dont like messing with (=opening) the machine).
but I'm not sure:

The problem file is:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\cmaudio.sys
version is  5.12.01.0646

It's not quite clear - various sites say it's a soundcard driver, e.g. here

cmedia is here:
http://www.cmedia.com.tw/drivers.html

[edit] added corrected embarassed the version number
[edit2] there doesnt appear to be a more recent version, I presume it's related to the Realtek soundcard, which hasnt had any updates since I installed the already old driver from cd that came with it (2 years ago now I think..)
[edit3] times like this I hate computers Sad - it could be the first offer on the list in the cmedia page linked to above. I might do a backup(=image) and try it out...

unfortunately in my case I had an error report for the Dr.Watson debugger last year - MS's 'solution' was to disable it - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949820 (I remember at the time it was seizing up and created a multi GB log file).
That means I dont have any reports in BlueScreenView since May 2008 Sad
- still, it has directed my towards an Audio driver so I'll have to check that out..
