Sorry but 32 bits can only address 4Gb - you can fudge it by adding offsets (mirrors) but it is a fudge. PAE is a fudge. You aren't physically addressing more than 4Gb at any one time it is like having a book - you can view any double page but you can't see 4 page at once - unless you use mirrors!-Carol Haynes (November 09, 2009, 07:18 PM)
So you are saying my example is right because you can only see behind you when you turn round and then you can't see what you were looking at Using a mirror is cheating (swine)-Carol Haynes (November 09, 2009, 06:20 PM)
Not really accurate - a 32-bit CPU and OS can only address 4Gb at any one time. You can use an offset to point to that 4Gb if you want to but, for example, when you are looking at the 4Gb starting at 64Gb you can't see the 4Gb at 16Gb.-Carol Haynes (November 06, 2009, 08:04 PM)
I did acknowledge XP's utility, however, where exactly is the untruth and "religious belief" in my response to "For your normal user, there is little reason not to run Windows"? (emphasis mine)
No big deal. I disagreed and gave 11 specific reasons based on my experience with Linux as a reasonable alternative to Windows...-zridling (December 09, 2008, 04:10 PM)
As for old games booting faster than new ones, sure - old games didn't have to load a gigabyte of 3D models and texture data .-f0dder (December 05, 2008, 10:21 PM)
What if SQLNotes could automatically decompile CHM files and create an ouline of items with the CHM content... You'd get viewing, annotation, bookmarking and search.-PPLandry (September 03, 2008, 02:55 PM)
... and more!
It would be a very interesting thing to try... And it might be yet another compelling feature... not only for me. Superboyac seemed interested too...??-Armando (September 03, 2008, 05:08 PM)
tslim, here's what it says on the CHM To WORD page :
* Create Microsoft Word Document From CHM Files Windows CHM to HTML's greatest strength. As you know, Windows CHM To WORD is designed to convert .chm file to word
* Recompile Help projects: an added benefit for developers and serious users. Windows CHM To WORD provides not just the ability to generate more flexible HTML document storage, but also allows you to generate a completely recompile Help project, complete with all text, formatting, jumps, graphics, keywords, secondary windows and more, exactly as the original author intended them to appear.
* Convert CHM To HTML: In act, Windows CHM To WORD is Windows CHM To HTML's upgrade version. It means you will get both Windows CHM To HTML & Windows CHM To WORD after purchase Windows CHM To WORD only.
That means that you could transfert all your CHM files to a big word document, Convert them to OpenOffice format (example) and then from there to pdf.
Of course chm to word is a bit expensive, depending on how much you'll use it in the futre... $38-Armando (September 02, 2008, 01:40 PM)
Hi,I think the best way is to ask in their forum. As of this writing I am still waiting for the forum member registration activation email.
Nobody tried SyncBackPro v5, even Mouser in its backup tests !
I think it does everything required in the 1st post.-laurentdc (September 01, 2008, 05:35 PM)
I also load the .gbp file in Total Commander (7.04a, also downloaded just now). I know .gbp files are just .zip filies in another name, but my Directory Opus doesn't recognize it (not even after I set the association), and I don't want to change the ext name to reduce any doubt of tempering.
I set up a test folder with 6 files, 1 with English name, 1 Japanese, 1 Korean, 1 Simplified Chinese (same as yours), 2 with Traditional Chinese (one the same as yours, converted Traditional Chinese, the other with characters that often cause troubles).What do you mean by "one the same as yours, converted Traditional Chinese"?
Screenshot 1: The "Rename unicode files" option in GBM Pro isn't checked.I suppose if the "Rename unicode files" option is not ticked then foreign file names should be saved as it is. There shouldn't be a rename during backup nor a "GRename" folder in the gbp file.
Screenshot 6: directory structure of test.gbp on the left, and my test folder ("K:\gbmtest") on the right. See the "GRename" and "MF" subfolder?
Screenshot 4: Simplifed Chinese search: filter view (background) worked, but Advanced Search found nothing.Those search failures are expected. Think about it, if the file names are stored in non-native way, how could there be any match. Do you notice all your search failures happen only when you search for those files whose name is stored by the so called GRename Technology (in GRename folder)?
Screenshot 5: Same with Japanese (and Korean, screenshot omitted.)
Side note: why doesn't GPB remember the size and position of the Advanced Search dialog box?Your are fingering my G-Spot, ah! Ah! AH
There are 2 things I want to clarify here:The GBM Pro is the world most extreme software. It has fast zip engine, it is unicode awareLast time I tried, GBM Pro v.8 did backup and restore files with unicode filenames fine, but its search function couldn't find them in the zipped archives. Zip format doesn't have native unicode support, and GBM has to change the filenames before storing them. When searching, however, it didn't handle this conversion properly.-tslim (August 21, 2008, 01:58 PM)
Not sure if it's still a valid observation, but be sure to check if this is important to you.-mwang (August 29, 2008, 07:49 AM)
I've been a MM user (lifetime license) for a number of years now and can vouch for it's ability to do 2, 3 and 4 (not sure about 1). The mp3 tagging support is superb and the mp3 conversion uses the LAME encoder, so is excellent quality.
Would I buy it now? Not sure - there are many more efficient players around for free (e.g. foobar, xmplayer etc.). Tagging can be done via Picard http://musicbrainz.org/ - although the track properties in MM gives you a huge amount of control over the tracks (e.g. tempo, mood etc.) - and there are a thousand-and-one CD rippers, converters and burners.
The MM skins really put me off at first, but the non-skinned version looks better.
So, it's good, but you'll really need to demo it before buying to decide if it's $40 better than the free stuff.-mnemonic (August 28, 2008, 12:51 PM)
