I haven't downloaded this yet but I did own and use the Softmaker office suite for Windows PPCs back before they were phones. THeir alternates for Word and Excel, Textmaker and Planmaker were truly the best I had seen. While Word and Excel for PPC - distributed by Microsoft - lost most formatting when syncing with a desktop Office version via ActiveSync, the Softmaker programs retained all formatting. And they had some really cool formats and styles. E.g., all 3D charts were available. Full-featured tables in Word, columns, text-wrapping.

I don’t know if the Android apps are the same but if so, I'll be using them.


General Software Discussion / Re: Ad Muncher 5 will be free

I have to admit that I never tried Ad Muncher before, because of the price and because I was afraid that I might like it. — True. I do.

So far I'm amazed with the amount of garbage this app is capable to block. Also, I've never realized before how much the AdBlock plugin slows down the browser.

Yeah, but their biggest problem is no filtering on any https:// pages. YouTube, for example. All other adblockers seem to be able to have an effect on https://, yet Ad Muncher has been promising such coverage for NINE years!


I remember a few years back someone here suggested creating a software group on a relatively new social network called "Facebook".   :P  Actually that is exactly when I joined that soulless network. Unfortunately, after forming the group we never did do anything.   :(

Do you all (who originally joined that group) remember?


Here's my baby - from 1986! Still runs though to be honest I don’t use it that much anymore. Hate to get rid of it - kinda like my old 1928 black cast iron Royal typewriter...



Living Room / Re: Favorite Sci-fi movies?

oh, oh, what about...

primer (not that exciting but perhaps the best time travel movie - don't mention 'donnie darko', what an incredibly overrated piece of work that is).

Primer is great! Time travel flick that was shot on a very tight budget, and yet is just devastatingly clever. Confusing if you don’t pay very close attention.

And actually I love Donnie Darko! I didn't fully understand it at first but after reading the book written by Richard Kelly, the writer and director, I appreciated the story a lot more. Budget constraints prevented a lot of the details from being included but the backstory for the script is actually very sharp.
