I learned a long time ago to remove the EXIF and any other exorbitant data from my pictures with a freebie called JPg Cleaner 95, for no other reason than it makes the file smaller and saves drive space.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into JPG Cleaner [95] v2.6 By Rainbow Software and PiT.


Thanks for the information. I came here after private conversation with Tomos about his the calculator screenshot which appearing in this post. The calculator is Windows 7's Calculator which I can't use in XP.

Microsoft PowerToy Power Calculator for Windows XP looks more powerful and more complex than Win7 Calculator.


For casual daily use, perhaps I just use FC FARR plugin. :)

Ron's Editor is a powerful CSV editor, that has been under development on and off for quite a few years.

Welcome to DC.  :)

Well, I am interested in trying Quick Find (Quick "as-you-type" row filtering makes it easier to find things.) feature.


Yes, I notice that.  :o Aside of those AV tests, my setup has not experienced any infection yet and it is stable in my low-powered netbook.

German lab downgrades Redmond after zero-day detection rates slide

Another security software testing organisation, Virus Bulletin, says Security Essentials’ performance is sufficient to justify its VB100 rating, which can only be attained by software that “prove[ s] it can detect 100% of malware samples listed as 'In the Wild' by the WildList Organization” without generating any false positives.

Very nice drawing.  :Thmbsup:

I read today that product key of pre-installed OEM Windows 8 is embedded in the BIOS.

So far so good. There is a slight problem though in regards to installing a different version of the operating system on those devices. Say you have bought a laptop running Windows 8, and have an OEM copy of Windows 8 Pro lying around that you want to install on that laptop.

The installer will automatically use the BIOS key during installation giving you no option to enter the retail copy product key during installation. You do end up with an activated copy of the original version of Windows and not the one that you have purchased separately.

Plus, when you upgrade to Firefox 17 you get the cool new Facebook toolbar.


Also Firefox 17 does not save cookie exception, but there's a cure.

Are you going to wait for Windows 9?

At home : my netbook still run OEM version of Windows XP. I have skip Windows Vista, Windows 7, and now Windows 8. I can't afford to pay the license. So whatever next operating system I use, depends on what's installed on the new computer/device I buy.

At office : I use whatever OS installed on my computer/device. Today I still have to use Windows XP.

Yes, I am learning and trialing other operating system (Linux) and also learning any new OS produced by Microsoft, just in case I have to use it.  :)

How to Delete Your Metro Application’s Usage History in Windows 8 []

Windows 8 includes an all new Task Manager, which brings a whole bunch of new features. One of my favorites is the App history tab, which allows geeks like us to monitor our applications resource usage. Sometimes you may wish to reset the counters though, so here’s how.

If I use Linux Mint 13 Maya (Cinnamon 32-bit Edition), which CrossOver Linux should I download?

  • 64 bit Debian / Ubuntu (ia32-crossover_11.3.1-1_amd64.deb)
  • 32 bit Debian / Ubuntu (crossover_11.3.1-1_i386.deb)
  • 32 or 64 bit Red Hat (Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva) (crossover-11.3.1-1.i386.rpm)
  • Installer for all other Linux distributions (install-crossover-11.3.1.bin)

Just to add this bit of info from an old thread (https://www.donation....msg176095#msg176095):

20% coupon code for Malwarebytes valid as of 30 October 2012: BM6-3S7-665

I don't know how long the code will be good, but it's been valid since at least March 2012.

It is still valid today (31 October 2012 01:45 GMT)

I hope CrossOver will help me run ..., TrueCrypt, ....

TrueCrypt already has Linux support, which I suspect will run better than a Windows version under Wine/CrossOver.  I'm not certain, but I'd be surprised if Wine/CrossOver supported running any kind of Windows kernel driver, and TrueCrypt uses one for its main functionality on Windows.

Yes, I have checked that but I still have to learn about tar.gz and how to install software in Linux. :) In the mean time, I can continue working as if I were in Windows if crossover can help me run all needed software.

I am trialing Linux Mint 13 Maya. I hope CrossOver will help me run MS Office 2007, TrueCrypt, and The Bat!. Thanks to mahesh2k for the head up and 40hz for the enlightenment.  :Thmbsup:

I still use TheBat at the office. It handles 29 GB of emails. :Thmbsup:

Thank you for sharing. My best wishes for both of you. I hope all efforts will help Mrs. y0himba getting well very soon.

The desktop publishing software SpringPublisher has just been upgraded to version 3.0, and the team behind the product was nice enough to provide us with a review copy and ten software product keys for a give away. The program is offered as a free and professional version, with the free version limited to personal use and without some of the features of the pro version.

Thanks to kunkel321 for the info. I purchased Xplorer2 last month after trialing it with Listary Pro.

Thanks for the head up, Curt.  :)
