I won't install it when it's still in beta, so at this price I didn't test it, but purchased 2 lifetime licenses right away. Fantastic offer!
Curt, like you I prefer to wait until a program is out of beta before using it.  I bought a lifetime license for WinPrivacy both because the price was so reasonable and to support the guy who has taken over from BillP.  I was very pleased when I got an email with my registration info and the following statement:
Below is your registration name and code for WinPrivacy. Please retain this for future use.
You will receive an email with each release of a WinPrivacy public beta, feel free to install it.
In addition, you will receive an email when WinPrivacy goes live if you'd rather wait for the shipping product.

Looks like BillP found the right guy to carry on.   :Thmbsup:

N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release: WhenLast (Android app)
« on: December 30, 2014, 12:11 PM »
I just came upon this thread, decided When Last was just what I needed, and downloaded and installed it on my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet.  I'm impressed with how simple it is to use, assuming I remember to do so.  I guess it doesn't make sense to add a Check When Last item  ;) .

I did have one question.  After making two categories (Home, Computers), and saying that I wanted ALL to show, what I saw were those categories, but over the first one, completely in caps, was OTHER.  I couldn't decide where that was nor what it referred to.  I got rid of it by re-checking Hide Empty Sections.  But is it an empty section?  If so, how can I find it and get rid of it?

Also, is there a way to order the sections?  I have a hopelessly alphabetical mind.  Hence, I'd ideally like Computers to come before Home.  Is that possible?  Ideally, for both categories and items within a category.

Many thanks, mouser.  I'm delighted to have this.

So if you purchased before 2010, you probably didn't get an e-mail.
Ah, that explains it.  Thanks for the info.

Thanks, wraith.  I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who feels this way.  :up:

Thanks for posting  this, xtabber.  I've been a WinPatrol PLUS user for many years, but I don't recall having received any info about WinPrivacy.  Looks interesting, and the price right now is very reasonable.

General Software Discussion / Re: Directory Opus 11 Released!
« on: December 16, 2014, 10:50 AM »
EDIT// (in case version 12 is relelased soonish:)
I dont know what their upgrade pricing is when upgrading from an older version (e.g. for 11, version 9 or older; etc.)
This posting may answer that question, at least for a couple more weeks:

Post New Requests Here / Re: Finding the path of a file on your computer
« on: September 01, 2014, 09:52 AM »
I rarely run across this problem.  As long as I know at least a partial file name, I can simply search using Everything Search, and it tells me the full path.  Everything Search is a marvel. 

In her most recent "Patch Watch" column in Windows Secrets Newsletter, Susan Bradley advises holding off on installing KB2993651 for a while.  Any time she offers such advice, I take it.  An "Important" update is not nearly as pressing as one that is "Critical."

Found Deals and Discounts / Re: EaseUS & SoftMaker Office
« on: July 22, 2014, 08:30 AM »
I've never used EaseUS, but I've been using SoftMaker Office Standard edition for several years--hmm, at least three, since that's how old my desktop computer is, and I never even put MSOffice on it.  I've been very happy with SoftMaker Office, which I use primarily as a MS Word replacement but occasionally as an Excel replacement. 

Living Room / Re: Avast is vulnerable?
« on: July 15, 2014, 12:02 PM »
I'm probably way off base here, but when I saw AVAST's rather lame explanation was offered by someone named Alfred E. Newman, I wondered whether it was a joke of some sort, remembering that the mascot of MAD magazine was Alfred E. Neuman.

General Software Discussion / Re: WinPatrol has a new developer
« on: July 02, 2014, 07:50 AM »
Jibz, many thanks for posting this.  I somehow missed the announcement, and I had my heart in my mouth when I read your subject header.  But after reading Bill P's posting, I'm feeling optimistic.  As much as I love WinPatrol, I think there are things that could be improved, and perhaps someone seeing WinPatrol with fresher eyes might make some positive changes to an already terrific program. Besides, it seems appropriate that someone from a hard-to-pronounce company (Ruiware) should take over from someone with a hard-to-pronounce last name (Pytlovany)  :) .

Living Room / Re: Nexus 7 and wireless charging
« on: June 14, 2014, 08:49 AM »
Techidave, I have a Nexus 7 (2013) and I always charge it in the usual wired way.  However, on the Nexus 7 (2013) Forum on Android Central there have been some discussions of charging it wirelessly as well.  IIRC, some people felt it charged faster using a wired connection.

Sorry, ewemoa, I don't know any Asian languages and thus have never tried to use IO Notepad with them. 

I've been using OI Safe, along with OI Notepad, on my Nexus 7 tablet for months now, and I'm very happy with it.  One thing I like is that I can have both encrypted and unencrypted files on OI Notepad, so in addition to the encrypted files, I can use OI Notepad as an everyday text editor. 

May be I'll take another look at these -- last time I checked, I think I encountered difficulties using OI Notepad with (some?) non-ASCII data. 
I'm not sure, but I don't recall using OI Notepad with non-ASCII data.  I use it for the same kinds of things I use UltraEdit for on my computer.  OI Notepad can handle upper-ASCII stuff like ñ or ¿, so I'm content.  What sort of non-ASCII stuff would you want it to handle?

I might just add that I don't swype, I just put in the words as I would with a computer keyboard.  One great thing about SwiftKey, however, is that often it guesses what I want to say so well that I can write whole sentences without having to type any letters at all, I just keep accepting its suggestions. 

When I first started using SwiftKey, I had to switch to its second or third keyboard to access symbols such as ~ < and >, but now even these have been added to the main keyboard.  Just about everything I need is on that main keyboard.  I love it.

@kunkel321: I should preface this by saying I know zilch about Java, other than the fact that Pimlical/Desktop uses it, which is probably the only reason I still have Java on my computer.  I wonder, though, whether the app WebDAV Pro will work on your Kindle, and if it does, whether you could sync between Pimlical/Desktop and Pimlical/Android using WebDav Pro.  For months I used it for such syncing, since I couldn't get my Nexus 7 tablet to be seen on my Windows 7 computer any other way.  I still use WebDAV to transfer files between the Nexus and my computer.  I mention this FWIW, but I have no idea whether Java enters into the equation and thus makes this arrangement impossible for the Kindle.

I've been using SwiftKey with my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet for close to a year.  It's an amazing keyboard that lets me type in English or Spanish without having to move from the main keyboard; indeed, it also offers suggestions to me in both languages, and they're amazingly on target (especially those in English, since it's had more opportunity to learn my vocabulary in English).  I was surprised a day or so ago to learn that it's now free.  I think the company sees more revenue coming from charging for new themes, etc., than from having more people buy the app.  I hope they're right, since I want to see the program continue to thrive.  But I've gotta say that I've been underwhelmed by the themes.  I mean, I certainly see some I like, but I doubt I'd pay for them.  I'd rather pay for the app and for customizations I care about, but I suspect I'm not like most of the SwiftKey users, except in my enthusiasm for the keyboard.

Perhaps it's because I'm using the 32-bit version of Pale Moon on my Win 7 64-bit computer, but I simply haven't had problems with downloading files of any size with DSB.  I don't even think about it, that's how unproblematic my experience has been.  (For a while, I had both the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Pale Moon on the computer, using the 64-bit except when some software wanted the 32-bit.  I finally decided it was silly to have both, and I chose to keep the 32-bit, but I don't recall encountering any download problems while I was using the 64-bit version.)

Curt, I'm very sorry to hear about the blood clots.  I hope they don't give you any more grief.  Can they be treated?  dissolved?  Given your worries, I'm impressed that you answered the question about your go-to programs.  I doubt I could have done that. 

Almost all of my favourite programs from the past have been abandoned, so I guess my favourites of the present also may be abandoned some time in the future - so what if I like (FastStone Capture) this (Pale Moon) or that (jetAudio was updated!!) program (Dynamic-Photo HDR 5)? Tomorrow will be a different story.
Wow, Curt.  Sounds like you've had a bad day/week/month.  :(  Yes, it's true that nothing lasts for ever, but that's no reason not to enjoy programs while they're useful and no reason not to be interested in what other people like.  And for that matter, I've continued to find some programs very useful for a decade or more.  HyperSnap and I go back 17 years; there almost never a day that I'm at my computer without using it.  Mulberry is still my primary email client after 14 years of use (in spite of my trying unsuccessfully to find a more modern replacement).  UltraEdit has been my default text editor for about the same amount of time.  Someone turned me on to ActiveWords ten years ago, and I still use it every day.  Carpe diem program.  :)

For those wanting to get Surfulater integration working with Pale Moon, you can download the Surfulater xpi, here;)
Hmmm...I've had Surfulater working with Pale Moon for at least a year.  :huh:

It's true that updating Flash requires applying one update for IE and a separate update for other browsers.  However, the update that I thought we were talking about was not Flash but an update for a problem that only affected Internet Explorer.  That's why many people were advising using a browser other than IE until the problem was fixed in IE.

Vista is my poison and the update was listed as 'important' as well.  Though I don't recall ever seeing one labled 'critical'.  Just Important and Recommended.
However, I've found that the Microsoft report announcing this update lists it as "Critical."

Needless to say, I haven't yet installed it.   :huh: 
Why would one chose to ignore a security update for anything installed?   :huh:
Because a number of times in the past, I've had updates that Microsoft has listed but not checked, and most of the time, it turned out there was a problem with that update, so I was glad I hadn't installed it.

I'm a bit puzzled about all this.  Today I was offered an update related to this issue: KB 2964358.  It's offered to people on Win 7 who have an earlier update installed (KB 2929437, I think, which is already installed).  However, KB 2964358 is rated as "important" rather than "critical," even though it would seem that the issue is more serious than "important" suggests.  Moreover, this update was offered to me but not checked, which usually is a sign I shouldn't be quick to install it.  I'm not all that worried, since I almost never use Internet Explorer (it's fourth on my list, after Pale Moon, Opera 12.17, and Firefox).  But I'm nonetheless puzzled.  Needless to say, I haven't yet installed it.   :huh:
