General Software Discussion / Shift to Linux
« on: May 28, 2013, 07:49 AM »
I thought I would write this up to maybe help those who are tired of Windoz. I've used Windoz since 1998 and have a small computer repair business, so I am fairly savvy in Windoz. After toying very slightly with various versions of Linux over a few years, about 9 months ago I downloaded the "live CD" of Linux Mint 13-MATE.By booting with the "live CD" you run it from RAM, so nothing affects your regular install(of Windoz). I liked it so much that I've installed it and running(on 3 of my computers) it, dual booting with Win7. I'm using Linux probably 99% of the time, and really prefer it to Windoz. To further inform you-Linux is completely free, as are over 31,000 programs for it. Another thing I particularly like, using the dual boot is that I can go in Windoz partitions using Linux.You don't even need to run an anti-virus program.
Try it, you'll like it!

General Software Discussion / You Tube Download App Needed
« on: December 23, 2011, 11:30 AM »
Can someone please send me a link to a GOOD (preferably free), app to download (and maybe also convert), YouTube videos from the net?
I've tried several different ones, and they were pretty sad. Am running XP Pro/SP3, 2GB RAM. Thank y'all very much.

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Stalled Printer
« on: November 01, 2011, 09:21 AM »
When printer seems to "lock-up", it doesn't let you cancel all(or any) documents, would like an app or batch file to clear it quickly. (The batch file presently available at: http://lifehacker.com/5495818/cancel-a-print-job-without-waiting-years  is not working.) Thank you so much.
