I have been a DC member for almost 7 years now and am a daily visitor, although I have not been one to post very much. I am posting now to let you know that I have launched a new website offering a variety of helps for the more novice computer users. I have posted a number of tips, tutorials, and software reviews and will adding content daily. I would certainly appreciate any constructive feedback.

I launched the website for two reason. First, I enjoy almost all things related to the computer and feel that I can share some insights with others. Second, I also launched the site in the hope that it would generate some supplemental income for my family. I have a full-time job, but I find that I need to supplement my income a bit. To that end, the site includes advertising. Some of the advertising is in the form of banner ads from vendors with whom I have established an affiliate relationship. There are also some Google AdSense ads. My hope is that this sort of thing is not self-serving and offensive to potential visitors to my site. This is my first attempt at monetizing a website. If those of you who have more experience at this sort of thing have any suggestions, I would be glad to hear from you. Let me also add that the potential to earn a bit of income from a vendor whose product I review in no way impacts the review given. I seek to be as objective as possible. If I like program and find it useful, I will state that fact even if I gain nothing monetarily by so doing. Likewise, if I find a product to be lacking in some way, I will not hesitate to let my readers know that even if I have an affiliate relationship with that vendor. I do not believe in the practice of paying someone to give a product a positive review.

General Software Discussion / Opinions on System Utilties Suites
« on: March 01, 2011, 07:42 AM »
I think that the DC forum is great. I do not post very much, but I do read a great many of the posts and I often make software purchase decisions on the basis of what I read here at DC. With that in mind, I would very much like to know the opinions of the some of the DCers about system utilities suites (I don't know what else to call these programs) for Windows 7. What I have in mind are programs such as:

Tune-Up Utilities 2011

System Mechanic by Iolo

Fix-It Utilities 11

Any others that may come to mind.

What I would like to know is how useful others find these utilities to be? Are they useful at all? Do they do more harm than good?

Your responses are greatly appreciated.

I know that there are few threads on the DC forum related to clipboard manager software and from reading through some of those threads, it is apparent that some DCer's have tried out many of these programs. What that in mind, I am hoping that someone can answer a question for me relatively easily. I have been using ClipMate for about 6 years now and I really like the program. However, it is lacking one feature that I would find to be very, very helpful. I am a preacher and I spend a great deal of time studying. I use UltraRecall to store the notes that I take as I am studying for a sermon. I also make extensive use of the Bible program BibleWorks. I usually end up copying a great many Biblical texts from BibleWorks to UR. Up to this point I have been in the habit of copying the texts that I need and then using ClipMate to append them and copy them all at once to UR. What I would like to be able to do, but cannot do with ClipMate [as verified by this post], is to select the texts from BibleWorks [or any other application] and have the copied matter automatically pasted into UR [or any other application that I choose]. I hope that what I am describing makes sense. Again, ClipMate will not paste automatically from one application to a target application. Does anyone know of any clipboard manager that has this feature? This is not something that I MUST have, but for my purposes, it would be most handy.

General Software Discussion / Disable Start Menu
« on: February 28, 2008, 10:50 AM »
Is anyone able to suggest a way to permanently disable the Start Menu button from appearing on the taskbar on Windows XP? I have been using the program StartKiller from Tordex to do this, but there seem to be some issues between this program and Dexpot [when I change desktops, the Start Menu button reappears on the taskbar for the newly accessed desktop]. I never use the Start Menu and I think that it would be great to be able to remove it altogether. Some may think this request strange, but it just comes down to a matter of personal preference and my preference is to disable the Start Menu. My thanks in advance to anyone who proves to be of assistance.
