... the recipient has no way of knowing that the email they are being sent should be signed.

- very good point.


This will be something Bad Big Brother may want to force upon all.

I have no understanding of the technical side of this problem, but it seems to me that all this spoofy thingy is possible because we don't care to use Digital Signature (DS)? I tried to use it for private mailing when it was installed on my first computer (that is, the first with Internet access), but almost no-one had their email client set up to handle it. In Denmark we have another version of DS than the ones we all are offered via Microsoft, and we use it for addressing the authorities (we can do all of our taxes via the Internet only), and may use it privately. But no-one cares to use it for normal emailing because there are always someone who cannot open you mail because they have not installed this DS or they don't understand how to use it. And that may cause allow the actual problem.

Or am I completely mistaken?

Welcome, gimme!

We may not like their methods, but I am confident their products are o'kay.

I have been using both IE7Pro and Orbit, though not at the moment (but they are still installed and updated), and was never informed by NOD32, ThreatFire, or Outpost Pro, about anything dangerous. I would take "the risk", because they are both doing what they promise to do, and I have not been spammed in any way, but this does not mean that I approve of their marketing methods in general.

- this Total Video2Dvd Author is confusing me. The author did a major attempt to improve on his program last autumn, by giving out free licenses for good ideas, promotions, and language translations, but then it sort of died in November - and very few if any of the ideas were implemented.

One example:
In the first / initial "system settings" there are these two items one has to deal with:

[attachimg=#]

- fixed count of minutes between chapters? Fixed?!! In the initial system settings?!!!  ohmy

And what kind of program seems not to know where it is installed?
- it really is installed in C:\%PROGR..%\Total Video2DVD Author -but appears not to know this!

For these two "minor" reasons I have not yet taken up testing the program. I am still too upset!
I must point out, though, that the program is said to work just fine.

The headline was meant to stress that the burner should handle music files' meta data properly, because my first attempt was missing all the info. If it can burn what else you have got would only be another plus. With this said, I don't agree with you. They don't all handle every job equally good - some are experts on 'this' but not so fantastic on 'that'.

..., if you didn't know what the functions did, made coasters.
....made two coasters when I was trying to burn onto multi-session disks.

Forgive my ignorance, but what are coasters? -and why exactly "coasters"?

It sounds really good, this finnish Audio CD Ripper, Audio Converter, and CD/DVD Creator
- but somehow I get the feeling it is a bit ... I don't know ... "nerdish"??
How easy is it to use?  tellme

Forgive me for using the same words about the German cdr front-end.
It doesn't say anything about saving meta data and cover art??

So I looked for freeware and ended up with :

I am impressed, Steven! I think we all agree that your list is showing The Way to post!   thumbs up

I will take my time to check the options.

Yes, Nero 7 was excellent in many ways. And what's more: I have discovered what button I should have clicked, but didn't - so it might even have been able to do the job right, if only I had understood what button to click... Well: too late! And Nero 8 is just too expensive for me. But now I come to wonder how I managed to get my hands on Nero 7 Essentials in the first place? Has it been on GAOTD or something??  Hmm, come to think twice about it, I guess it came with one of my USB hard drives. Maybe I should check this and reinstall Essentials, to check if the error once again not was the program, but me...

 embarassed  - I have the entire Ashampoo catalogue, but I used Nero because I wanted to get the best result... Guess I should have taken more time to at least TRY to remember what other choices I already had at hand! But I am glad to hear Ashampoo will do it's job.

4813  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Recentx at Giveawayoftheday on: May 06, 2008, 04:43:14 PM
I am not sure it is fair to compare it to Filebox eXtender; RecentX can do so much more! - I use them both. But yes, it used to eat a lot of resources, but that problem has been solved. I recommend RecentX without reservation,... *(section removed due to lack of (human) memory)*... The program doesn't need support anymore, over the years it has been kind of perfected... pardon my French.

Go for it!  thumbs up

More than "probably", you can bet. They didn't even care to vary the prices: each and every one of the 31 listed programs (the one and only program, with many different names, I would guess) is €20.44

I have heard many good things about JR Media Center, but I really didn't care that much - I thought I already had what I would ever need. But I will try it, I guess - it is forty dollars... Will JR also convert various file types, and maybe extract MP3 from .FLV and .AVI files?

I have never before heard about Infra Recorder http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/
- I will have to check this one out as well!
4816  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Your fav' audio CD burner? on: May 06, 2008, 03:00:23 PM
I never took interest in how to burn audio CDs, because I didn't have the need. But last week a girl friend asked me to make the audio from some YouTube video files playable on her tiny ghetto blaster, so I was forced to give it a try. I had a copy of Nero Essential 7 which was impressive to me in many ways, so I carefully followed the procedure and burned a CD. Of course the disc was playable, and she was happy with it - but I was not! I am "absolutely certain" that I did as I was supposed to do - maybe - and before starting the burn I double checked if the filenames were listed right, and all such things. But nevertheless, the CD's info was not readable to any other player! I mean, the music was okay, but the file names and all other info had gone - all the disc had to say on the other players was "Track 1" + "Unknown this, and unknown that", "Track 2" + "Unknown.." and so on. None of the important informations were saved - no artist, no track name, no nothing.

As I said, Nero was impressive to me in many ways, but I got so upset that I removed all of it without hesitating - thus saving 385 MB! Their photo manager was 135 MB, or something, so I removed that one too, just for the fun of it... So today I saved half a GIGA in just two clicks!

Now I will try out my StarBurn 10 (35 MB) from GAOTD, it seems to offer most, but not all, of what Nero could do, but I keep thinking to myself: "I wonder what the other DC'ers are using?"  undecided

So my question to 'you' is:
What do you use to burn audio CDs that will show all proper info? [attachimg=1]

I am getting very anxious to know  if
there will be localized (Danish) full installation CDs as well, for XP Home SP3,
as my version seriously needs a repair!

@ yksyks: do you have both Mikogo and Mikogo Skype Extra installed, or just the latter?

- is it true that the Skype Extras should be sufficient?  tellme

My default already was Windows SharedSection=1024,4096,512
- did I perhaps get this from some "xp enhancer"-program?  undecided


12288 sounds more than brave to me!  tellme
4821  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Mikogo: share screen or access remote PC on: May 01, 2008, 07:34:18 AM
The listed asking price for Beam2Support is high (Setup fee: €50, license: €35 per month) - so the license must clearly be targeting professional tech supporters. Will BeamYourScreen take up offering licenses for the full featured Beam2Support for private once-in-a-while customers,  or does such *(none-)clients* have to 'settle' with Mikogo??

Wow; a very fine review, Lashiec!

Did you notice the age of the present version, and the frequency of updates?

sorry, the age was the top line at the site!  embarassed

Yes, PromptPal's GUI reacts a little too slow,
- but PromptPal is instant if you use the band in XP's task bar:

As for now the band is too wide to have open all of the time, but the author from Technology Lighthouse has promised me to TRY to make the band take up no more space than an icon.
