I didn't realize there was a free version of their editor. I have their free reader on my computer as a second reader, although I haven't used anything but Sumatra for some time now. I'm sure there were a couple things I preferred PDF-XChange for, I just don't remember what they were ATM.

Maybe I should be replacing it with the free editor.

Html and CSS School / Re: HTML editor for beginners
« on: April 08, 2015, 02:15 PM »
A decent text editor where you create the concept of the page you like to make and only when finished you'll do preview in the browser of your choice...is the better way to do things. Sure, at first you'll fail, perhaps even fail miserably. But you will proficient with HTML more quickly than when you keep staring at a preview pane to to see the result of each and every change. This is a time-consuming habit.

Same rules apply with CSS...especially when working with tricks to get the same look on different web-engines, you can fall in this trap.

I think some minimum quality/capability in the text editor has to be the baseline requirement, to be met before any additional features are considered. I'm not sure what that minimum would look like in a beginner oriented product.

Also, if you're going to upgrade, at least seriously consider a new PSU. Even the best power supplies degrade and fail. IME a poor (or poorly functioning) PSU is the surest way to kill almost anything in your computer.

Living Room / Re: Why are car stereos so flimsy?
« on: March 31, 2015, 01:25 PM »
It's been a long time (as in more than a decade) since I looked seriously at car stereos, but I used to swear by Alpine because they were so tough. In fact, my son (who was 5 or 6 at the time) managed to shove 3 CDs into our last (single disc) Alpine stereo. Once they were removed, it was as good as new.

Living Room / Re: Don Cheadle making Miles Ahead film

Cheadle was brilliant in Boogie Nights, Traffic, Hotel Rwanda, Devil In A Blue Dress, and, actually, anything else I can remember seeing him in. He even managed to make NFL promos dramatic. I recently also noticed he was in the late 80s gang movie Colors, and he was just as good in that, even though he barely had any dialogue.
