5076  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Vista’s ReadyBoost benefits on your Windows XP machine with eBoostr on: December 27, 2007, 07:33:55 AM
And the verdict:

Quote from: Ron Schenone
One of the things that is mentioned on the eBoostr site is how the software may improve performance for those using a laptop system, which I used to perform my testing on. However, my system has 1G of RAM using Windows XP and I really didn’t notice much of a performance boost. This does not indicate that eBoostr didn’t work. But as mentioned in the comments, eBoostr may be used best on systems with either 256MB or 512MB of RAM, running programs such as Photoshop that tax the system.

Guess what? I have such a system. My wife’s laptop has 512MB and she also runs Photoshop at times. So I gave eBoostr a try on her system. I noted that there was a marked improvement using a 2G USB stick when running Photoshop. The system rendered changes to photo’s she was working with much quicker and there was less hard disk activity. In fact most of the time there was no hard disk activity. :-)

So what does this prove?

eBoostr does work on systems with low on board RAM using taxing programs such as Photoshop.

It also provides an easy way to increase performance without having to open the case. This is particularly attractive for laptop users.

So what is better? Using eBoostr or actually installing more physical RAM?

I’d personal recommend adding more physical RAM. But if cracking open the case, especially a laptop intimates you, than eBoostr is a definite alternative.


It seems this program may be the thing for me and my 448 MB available RAM...  thumbs up

CyberNet Technology News:

AVG PRO Antivirus

For a limited time you can download and use AVG 7.5 Professional Antivirus for free. For those of you running the always-free version of AVG there are some advantages to making the upgrade, such as advanced scanning and scheduling options.


I haven’t installed this myself because I’ve already bought a subscription to the ESET Smart Security suite, but from what I’ve read the file that you download will automatically enter in a valid serial number during the installation process. There is no word as to how long the subscription is good for, but I’m guessing one year.

AVG 7.5 Professional retails for $29.95, and this offer is good until January 17, 2008. It can only be used for personal use.

Download AVG 7.5 Pro Antivirus for free:
CompuerActive, RapidShare or MegaUpload.

Hey VampireRat (?!!!), if you have an old copy, you must be the guy who can show a picture of the old Webshots icon, you know the camera with a coloured dot in the lense. I need such an icon but didn't think of keeping it when I updated to the new version. Please?

5080  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / White Smoke 70% off on: December 26, 2007, 06:36:14 PM
White Smoke is quite often if not always discounted, but this is the lowest offer I have yet recieved: $100 for these special parts of the large program ~ against their "normal" price $333. The math looks like this according to their advert (does this link refer to my email address?):

General Writing version, normal $ 80
Buisness Writing version, normal $100
Creative writing version, normal $100
Multi-Language Translator, normal $40
Back-up license, normal price $13
Total price normal:                    $333
- rebate                                  $233
Offer until December 31:            $100

However, I am not too sure what is the exact meaning of the headline in the email: "2007 clearance". Does it mean that it is some old "2007" version they are trying to sell to me, so I have to pay big money to upgrade to version 2008? Or is it merely that they want to clean 'something' out before 2008? I am not sure yet, so I am writing to ask them, but I wouldn't hold back the offer meanwhile in case you would like to know about it. I hope to recieve their answer this year... and will of course report back. See next post >

Edit: I may have misunderstood the 602Pro company's praise of their product, because in the end of one of their pages it says about this fax feature that "Fax services can be provided through any standard TAPI fax modem. Give network users the ability to send and receive faxes with this easy-to-use fax server. All incoming faxes are delivered to user mailboxes (by Fax ID) or printed directly to a printer", and so maybe does not offer what you asked for.

602Pro LAN SUITE is an easy-to-install and manage all-in-one server application. Its standards-based SMTP/POP3 e-mail server provides effective e-mail communication without the risk of destructive virus infiltration and productivity robbing unsolicited e-mail. Fax services seamlessly integrate into user mailboxes to unify e-mail and fax message access.

- E-mail Server
- Fax Server
- Internet Sharing
- Firewall
- Web Server
- Administration

It supports a variety of access methods, from standard POP3 e-mail clients (i.e. Outlook Express) to built-in Web Mail access. The SSL SMTP/POP3 server provides secure encrypted transmission between the e-mail client and server.
The built-in firewall provides effective protection against unauthorized access. Shared Internet Access through LAN SUITE provides your network users with a secure connection to the Internet. Be in complete control of when and where your network users can go online! 602Pro LAN SUITE is fully controlled from a standard WWW browser. It can be easily managed across a LAN, WAN or the Internet. The included Configuration (...)

Please note, the 5 user version is FREE for commerical and non-commerical use!

Thanks for answer, Darwin - yes it helped for now; the problem is if I can remember it when needed...

But no-one answered your question. Maybe you should start a new thread? People might not look here if they don't want a Outpost license right now...

Hey Darwin. I wish I was the one who could answer you, but frankly I don't know what you were talking about - you know.. Some people have a way with words about IT, other people,... oh... have not way .. and I for one have no idea about what a router is or can do, not to mention a wireless one of the kind, but I find the subject exciting! Please forgive me for displaying my ignorance againagain - but I am truly looking forward to read the other members' answers to your question - maybe they will also reveal what is the meaning of terms like "WEP encryption" and "WPA", or explain why a MAC address filter probably has nothing to do with a MAC?!


... is there any argument to be made for continuing to run a software firewall (other than the one that comes with XP) when behind a hardware firewall, MAC address filter, and WEP encryption (router doesn't support WPA)?

5091  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Agnitum is offering 3 for 1 on: December 22, 2007, 04:38:55 AM
They haven't cut down the asking price, but they are offering you to have three installations for the price of one license - no matter if you choose Outpost or the Security Suite. The offer is valid for a month or so:


Special offer:

1 license = 3 installations!    
For the next month, Agnitum is extending the capacity of one-year licenses for both Outpost Security Suite Pro and Outpost Firewall Pro 2008. For as little as $49.95 and $39.95 respectively, for the period December 20, 2007 to January 20, 2008 you can protect three PCs for a full year!

While at it: check out your (zodiac) sign! Nice drawings and almost funny! I am a Virgo:

First I must point out that I have never paid anything close to the listed prices for any of my Ashampoo programs. Secondly, I really don't think of PhotoCommander as a media player. I merely meant it is better as a media player than as an organizer. Thirdly, I don't need anyone or anything to "organize" my PC. What are they implying? I know where my stuff is placed. Fourthly and last, I am certain J. Rivers is among the best media players, but I don't want it; I use the new Winamp. But thanks for the hint.

TMPGenc is $90, though, and $55 to upgrade. Anyway, I only wanted DivX Author because of, well, because of the divx format, didn't I, but that is also the reason I wouldn't pay the normal full price. There are planty of authoring tools, some even for free, but without the latest divx format - they seem to always use some older divx version.

Some time ago I was convinced by some enthusiasts that it would be a good idea to purchase Serif Photo Plus 11, so I did. Now I cannot figure out  WHY , because I have not yet come across any viewer or editor that can actually handle the extension .spp. So I ask "you": Are there any (other) picture viewers (or editors) that can read (or maybe even edit) the .SPP format? Why on earth was I to purchase this program?

Edited for some 'minor' typos...  embarassed
Besides, as many other viewers  PhotoPlus 11 cannot display CMYK (jpg) properly:
