Big bubble wrap is a prize on the street.  Almost like sleeping on an air mattress if it's the really large ones.  smiley
I borrowed your expertise in this! I wrapped a sheet of bubble wrap around a 2'x2' solid foam core. Next, I sandwiched it between cardboard, then wrapped and sealed that in sturdy black plastic. Now an ice-hockey-going friend of mine has warm feet at the games.

taking a staples lined desk calendar and using it as a desk mat with the answers to the 30 most annoying questions ever, but then all the rest can use the basic note software he's looking at.
Good trick, I have one of those!

Snorkels and parkas.  What can I say?
Sounds like bubble wrap to me...

Believe it or not I was looking at these weird things around 5:30 this morning, hovering around the light over the stairs up to the train platform.  I could have sworn they were tiny snowflakes.  smiley
Nah, the guy on the next step up has dandruff.

FWIW, on my system the version from the new link shows its 'About' box behind the main window. I don't know if that was true of the previous version. W7-64.

That calls for corporal punishment!

May I suggest that we owe a vote of thanks to IainB for the past year of thorough, well-researched, and interesting mini reviews. These take a fair bit of time to assemble and have proved to be enlightening.

So, thanks IainB  Thmbsup

He does your basic backup imaging(I think he uses Macrium.)  But periodically he puts an internal drive that is identical make/model/size to the system drive in his PC, in a docking station and restores the image of his working system to that drive.  He stores the drive away.  Now if he has a drive failure he opens the box, replaces the HD, and boots to a working system.

Of course if there's nothing wrong with the boot drive physically, then he just does an image restore from the drive in the dock, booting the Macrium rescue disk from USB or whatever.

FWIW, I do the same thing, also with Macrium Reflect. Luckily, on my main box I have a twin-bay drive caddy with two SSDs, so its a piece of cake to do this. That caddy is one of the most convenient items I've ever had on a computer.

I used to use Rollback RX when on XP but even the latest versions of it hose my W7 and W8 systems.

I have yet to see Macrium fail. For example, I just restored a four-drive system to Win7 from Win8.

Having a clone of the boot drive is useful but I tend to forget to keep it up to date, whereas I do remember to carry out regular backups, rotating the backup media (I know that's illogical).

(if you don't know what it is, you send someone an image, and they have 10 seconds(?) to look at it before it's deleted).
Hmm...that's how my memory functions  ohmy

And done.  It does look better with the tweaks, IMO.  Let me know what you think.
Sorry for the delay (working on a major computer castrophe here).
That is better for me — thanks a lot! I can't see the cross very well but I can see the check mark, and one indicator is enough.
It doesn't help that the background on my screens is grey  Grin  ohmy

It should be fading in on hover... maybe I just need to make it fade in more and change the animation.  Let me tweak it a bit more.
Sorry,  I wasn't clear about what I meant. It does fade in on hover now, but not enough for me to see whether the icon indicates locked or unlocked. A tweak might well do it.

Very nice indeed  Thmbsup

Thanks for adding image locking!
My only quibble is that I find it a bit difficult to see the state of the lock/unlock icon.
Is there a way to help with that? Fade in, on hover, to a higher degree of opacity? A tooltip? A locked/unlocked menu?
The settings icon is fine as it pops up a menu.

There might be a way to dodge that.
