RE: Beware of Freeware downloads
The title of this post is exactly what freeware authors fear -- that our software will get a bad reputation because of some bad sites.

The lesson is not to beware freeware -- it's to beware these third party download sites.
ALWAYS go to the source, the author of the software, to find the download.  NEVER trust a third party source unless it is directly linked from the author's web page.

The problem with this for the average user is Chrome.  Not sure if FF/IE do this also, i.e. this file is not one that (we think is) downloaded commonly, so you shouldn't download it.

*sigh*

Seen that so many times on both Chrome and FF...if a download hasn't has many hits, then they are labelled as "Dodgy as fuck" by the browser which will turn 80% of normal users away because they don't understand.

DC should become a freeware download site  mrgreen

I agree..this has to be one of the more horrific titles that appeared on DC.

Me being part of the 80% of the 'normal users' ... isn't it better to be safe than sorry?  Don't believe anything you read and half of what you see.  I heard this long before the Internet earned my mistrust.  Why would any semi-informed non-geek take a chance with their machine?  They wouldn't.  When IE9 or MBAM or... warns to stay away... i do.  Mousers view is my view.  Go to the source; the author of the software.  (Just beware be aware of what you click at the authors site as well).  Grin

I always thought Walgreens had over-priced instant coffee; that is until i went to Walmart.
Same brand and quantity but Walmart wanted about three bucks more than Walgreens.
'Save money, live better'?  yea.. right.  Grin


The problem with Walgreens is that none of their sale prices apply if you don't have one of their member cards.

I went to get something there last week and ended up picking up a dozen "on sale" items. When these items rang up significantly higher than I expected, I was informed (with a smug smile) that: "You have to have a Walgreens card to get the sale price." Had I been offered the opportunity to request a card at that point I might not have been annoyed, and probably would have played along. But this particular cashier shot a smile over to the cashier across the aisle, stepped back, crossed her arms, and then asked: "Do you still want them?"

I told her to forget it and just void my entire purchase.

At least I had the satisfaction of seeing the befuddled look on her face and hearing her say "You're kidding?" before I walked out.

I doubt I'll go back.

If this had happened to me... I'd go back and look for that crossed arms cashier.  If she was there i'd buy something small and during checkout... read her name-tag.  Then go online and bitch about how i was treated by this person.  Last year I just happened to take a 'How are we doing...' survey for a grocery store and bitched about how a specific cashier would mistreat my canned goods.  (no point in looking for undamaged cans if they're full of dents after checkout)  This 'survey-day' was the third time i came home with dented cans and i was pissed.  I saw this cashier on my next visit and she wasn't behind a register... she was stocking shelves.  The following visit she was gone.  It was not my intent to get her canned (NPI) but enough is enough.  Three strikes and you're out.   tongue

This one cracks me up.  smiley

Isn't that the Walmart-application computer?!?  -- nice  smiley

I just figured she ripped it trying it on.  The old anti-theft spycam in the changing room shot.

Either that or it's a new design for those too lazy to unbutton their pants when using the commode?

Maybe this just shows that Wal-Mart is ripping (off) its customers...

It there a program that can find duplicate files and move all duplicate files to a specific folder? That way, the files can be manually check.

Fast Duplicate File Finder may work for you as well.  http://www.mindgems.com/p...ate-File-Finder-About.htm

I used it to find exact duplicate photos and it did PDQ!  I moved the dupes to a new folder.  Freeware.   smiley
