... Isn’t giving a firewall a thumb down because it’s not perfectly compatible with PS tray a bit… extreme  ?? ...

I have a license for Outpost Pro, so I don't have to tolerate any problems.  Wink

The Danes ruled certain parts of Ireland a thousand years ago, so there may be some Irishmen with Danish blood, but I am quite sure that I don't have Irish blood...

It can be almost chocking how little it sometimes takes to make even a giant fall.

The best of wishes!  Thmbsup

Which kind of internet connection do you have?

I am not sure how to translate this into English, so I ask for your help on this, f0dder: "Hybrid kabel tv (TDC's webspeed)", for both Internet and telephone. TDC's spamfilter is very fine, but I don't think they filter or protect anythjing else.

But thanks for the warning; I will probably re-install my firewall very soon.
4804  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: windows security - what's really necessary? on: February 04, 2008, 05:34:15 PM
- yes, Darwin. I disabled XP's firewall right out of the box.

I had (and have) a Outpost Pro license, so I never gave XP's firewall any second thought. When I decided that I also should test firewalls as well as many other kind of programs, I soon came to the conclusion that it was too much trouble for almost nothing, so I stopped using any firewall at all.
4805  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: windows security - what's really necessary? on: February 04, 2008, 05:07:47 PM
But you used Windows XP's firewall, didn't you?

No, I have never tried to use XP's firewall - not even once.
4806  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: windows security - what's really necessary? on: February 04, 2008, 08:31:24 AM
For half a year my XP has now been without any firewall at all. And no router (whatever such a thing may be!?). Only NOD32, and now also ThreatFire. Whenever I test a firewall I seem to end up thinking it is not worth the hazzle. But of course, today I don't download from dubious places like I used to... back then I really needed all the security I could get! So maybe the security problem is more about being cautious about where to go and what to download?

Thanks, Darwin. I will of course try it out, but my prejudice is that it will be too slow for me. Not because I expect it to be noticable slower than 1.6 but because I am getting used to the fastest Internet browser I have ever met: ThunderBrowse! Wow!! For the more simple kind of email-link-browsing it is so much faster than everything else I have tried   that it is hard to beleive!!!

As time has gone by I have come to really dislike words like "Fully-automatic clean-up of your PC" - so No, I don't use TuneUp. I have the one from Ashampoo, but I don't use that one either. I don't even dare to use the combination from WreckedCarz!



4812  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: HowTo change global hotkey? on: February 02, 2008, 10:18:53 AM
Really nice program, Darwin. However, I very much dislike that the $20 Mophy Accents will occupy every AltGr+ combinations - I mean, don't we all have some combinations occupied by other programs? I certainly have!
4813  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is your boot time? on: February 02, 2008, 08:40:12 AM
I usually light up a cig and hit the start button, then I most likely leave my appartment, not closing the door, and stand on the gallery, watching the city, until I can hear Skype is logging on to my account. By then I will have finished my cigarette, so the hole of the procedure must have taken about 8 minutes. Other than that I am using Statup Delayer with extreme headroom, 10 seconds for each program, so my startup procedure is: 30 seconds for initial boot and side-page defrag, 90 seconds for XP, 30 seconds for programs starting before Startup Delayer, making it 2½ minute before I can use the machine..--..but then 4 more minutes plus a lot of launching time for the rest of the company, making it a total of some 7 or 8 min. 


I launch my XP several times a day, so I do smoke a lot...  embarassed

4819  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon 2.0.8 beta supports IE/COM plugins on: February 01, 2008, 11:24:20 AM
I tried Maxthon 2 (not beta) just a month ago but still like 1.6 better. However, it is clear to me that most of the new addons and plugins are being written for version 2 only, so one day soon I will be bound to give up on the Classic anyway. I just hope for Maxthon 2 to be faster than so far, and to give me back my Maxthon Start Page in the way that I want it to be. Also, I must be able to add any search engine.

But I didn't try it for long and I didn't take notes on my experience, so maybe I have forgotten or just didn't figure out all of the options and it can already do what I am asking for? Hmm... I better remember to try the next version! You will remember to tell when the stable version with these new features have been launched? Yes, of course you will, Darwin.  Kiss

Welcome to DC iconico

a rather late welcome?  tongue  :


But he is offering an impressive amount of programs:

Quote
Cardio Calipers - Cute Context Menu - Data Extractor - DiskAnalyzer Pro -Easy Sweeper - Email Extractor - Extraction Pack - HTML Text Extractor - Quick Runner - Screen Calipers - Screen Compass - Screen Protractor - Screen Tracing Paper - Sleepy - WebTools Pro

- I wonder if he wrote all of them himself?  undecided

However, Screen Measurement Pack (Screen Calipers, Screen Protractor and Screen Compass) was mentioned in his first post almost a year ago. I for one would sure like to see this bundle offered at Bits du Jour again!  thumbs up

Thanks for the headup, Darwin, but No, I removed the folder at once when I uninstalled the program, and besides, I am using a startup manager.

But I too will like to make it clear that I found Online-Armor to be quite a good firewall, only, I had this one or two items...
