On the other hand, if money is no problem, I will recommend the pro version of the first one you mentioned, the $40 Natural Reader Professional (Basic)

If money is an isue, and you think you can live with commercials nag messages, then you should (also) try out Cepstral's Callie. Normally it is $30, but with (oral) ads it is gratis.

My experience is that it is far more important what voice you purchase. Forget about free ones; they stink (compared to $$ versions)!

@ Grorgy: Did you try to merely raise the CPU priority of the service in question?
- this methode helped a weakling of mine - but it wasn't a service, though.

If it is stolen anyway, it would bee good if LocatePC already was installed.

Quote from: LocatePC
If the worst happens to your computer and it is stolen then usually there's no way to track where it is. That's where LocatePC comes in.

LocatePC sends you a secret email message from your computer containing vital information that can help you and law enforcement track a stolen computer, and eventually return it to you.

LocatePC is free software, and runs unobtrusively on your computer, with no icons, popups or saved emails. If your computer is stolen then the thief will not even know that LocatePC is running, and as soon as they connect to the internet a secret email is sent to you containing the details that you need to track your hardware.

I have been running the M8 Spartan clipboard for a couple of months by now, and I like it a lot; I think it is worth the price. Only one little feature bothered me: Spartan has an activation button which will pop up whenever the mouse pointer reaches the pre-selected edge of the screen. But this would also happen in the corners, meaning that the button in my setup would get in the way when I was trying to close a maximized window. So finally I pulled my act together and wrote M8 and asked for option not to activate in the corners. 50 hours later I recieved an email from John Turnbull telling that my feature request had been met, and the new version was ready for download.

In merely 50 hours! Fine service!!  thumbs up

"of its time"????  I still use TClockEx 1.42 today - it is installed om every PC I own!!

Why? Didn't you upgrade to XP or Vista? I don't think TClockEx looks good on XP (so now I am using BetaClock from AlfaClock. (Hmmm... I see there is also a version that comes with "a loader" - I haven't noticed that one before. I think I will try it now!).
5408  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Perfect Software? on: November 09, 2007, 12:00:34 PM
... a question: does anyone know of a software company that said at some point, "this thing we make is as good as it needs to be, so we're not going to improve it anymore?"

A perfect program of its time was Dale Nurden's TClockEx 1.42

Also, Alexander Davidson's MetaPad 3.5, as mentioned on page 1.

... TIMEOUT.EXE on your system, ... can be had as part of the Server 2003 Resource kit.

Were you referring to Timeit.exe , not timeout ??
- I don't see any timeout.exe at the page you linked to.

5411  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: To wide-screen or not to wide-screen on: November 06, 2007, 05:37:04 PM
I think of wide screen as ten thousand old wallpapers that will no more fit the screen.

And as letters and documents looking different on the recievers screen, from what I intended them to.

Edit: BTW:
My LCD is from before LCD was invented, I guess; it is from the previous century. 786,432 pixels.

"Unread Topics" is listing 25 threads I am supposed not to have read, but I know for sure that I have read 5 of them. It seems not to be too accurate. Of course there are hundreds or thousands of topics I haven't read. Anyway, I have never before used this feature, and I don't think I will again.

This is horrible, Brandon!  ohmy

1) Setup created a new Directory: C:/Program Files/, instead of C:/%Program Files%/ ~ C:/Programmer/  in Danish.

2) Setup was not [Edit: "all" ] successfull, I guess, but ended with "gave me" an error message: [I missed to see the icon in the systray]

[attachimg=1]


3) There is no uninstaller, and the program is not listed in XP's Add/Remove Programs.
The folder's content:

So what am I to do now?
5414  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ESET Smart Security on: November 06, 2007, 12:34:36 PM
Regarding the leak tests, then it is important to remember that Eset several times has declared that they are taking another point of view than the "traditional". The new Eset firewall is handling the leaks in a different way, which will make it seem as if they are not handled at all, but they are. I don't quite understand the procedure, but you can read about it at Wilders Security Forum. Scott Finnie is not a guru of mine.

5418  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: ESET Smart Security on: November 06, 2007, 10:20:32 AM
I have high hopes for the Eset Smart Security, and if my expectations are met within a year, I will most likely adopt the "smart" suite October 2008 when both my NOD32 and my Outpost Pro license expires - such giving Eset time to further improve the suite.  I think the price-jump from NOD32 is fair, acceptable, ~ from $40 to $60.

[attachimg=#]

Edit: Maybe in a year also the Scandinavian reseller will have discovered Smart Security, and will actually offer it!! Not even the very name, Smart Security, is to be found at the Danish site!! - which is a problem as long as potential buyers are being auto-redirected to their national reseller.

5419  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Scott Finnie unimpressed by NOD32 ... on: November 06, 2007, 08:37:12 AM
The version on the pictures in my previous post is version 3.0.551.0   which is a BETA version that was downloaded from Major Geeks before the weekend, but the final version you can download today from Eset's homepage is version 3.0.551
~ Looking at the version numbers  I find it pretty hard to tell the difference!
5420  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Free computer help online/CompuTech (my) programs on: November 05, 2007, 03:37:45 PM
I only have a minor issue: I find it wrong to occupy several folders in Program Files. It is annoying to my eyes. The main folder [Edit: "for all of your programs"] should be CompuTech, and the sub (install) folder SnapSuite.

Otherwise I think you are just growing and growing!  Thmbsup

I have to confess that I did think it checked outgoing mail and was surprised to read it didn't.

Quite a lot of people are using Outlook, and NOD32 is checking outgoing mail in Outlook.

... I do think the interface (when you do want to make any tweaks) is very porly designed.


Hopefully the update to version 3 will solve all of these issues.

NOD32 Version 3.0 is being launched now.

The design is of course better - nothing else would even be posible! - and a lot easier to use. And today NOD32 is so much more than merely an antivirus. I think NOD32 is The Best program I have purchased, and now it is also nice to look at!

The image is the 3.0.551.0 BETA version from last week:
(click for full size):

The design of the GUI is now traditional, and easy to understand:

Compare "old" antivirus versions, (if you trust this kind of praise)

On another topic: "curiosity killed the cat" I wrote, on another DC thread, because I and many others were trying to open an empty file, though we were told in advance that it was empty. Seems like something similar is happening again... :

Sorry, the fault is on my side!
5424  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Do you use Desktop Widgets? on: November 05, 2007, 10:07:28 AM
Unless you have a widescreen, I can see no reason for desktop widgets. I only look at my desktop at PC Start and Shutdown [Edit: of for the fun of it]. When I want to take a break, I will start the screen saver. I don't understand the widget thing.

As Darwin, I am using True Launch Bar and PS Tray Factory. If I need (want) to see how my drive is doing, I will simply point at PS Tray Factory's tray icon, and all sorts of information will pop up. I find this to be smarter than to have to minimize all windows. The temperature outside my door, and the weather, and avaiable amount of RAM, and the CPU usage, are all being showed all the time in the task bar. I also could have the date shown all the time, if I wanted to, but I don't [Edit2: because I see it at every Startup, due to Webshots].

Edited for courtesy...

I don't want a folder to be named "x.12.2.5.23.5"

But maybe the choice can be added as an option?
