  • Ever.  For anything. I've learned to gloss over ads without noticing them.  Sort of like hearing without listening.
  • Have you tried the standard recovery techniques (in this order): 1. Delete the software you think is causing the problem 2. Run sfc /scannow 3. Boot in Safe Mode 4. Restore system from previous ...
  • It is called the Ken Burns effect (in general), and more specifically pan & zoom.  Most video editors in the $50 - $100 range have some sort of facility for this. I've been doing it for years with ...
  • I've been using the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard for several years and like it a lot. It doesn't click - the keys are almost silent. But they have a good feel and are have a good distance of ...
  • Replied in 3 choices !!!
    In this day & age whatever you choose should have an SSD boot drive.
  • https://www.polaroidcube.com/ I've been looking for a small 1080P camera to put on a 3-axis gyro device like the Feiyu 3.  Maybe this could be it.
  • My remote is the predecessor of the  Model 650, which is (or was) their lowest priced model.  Programming the remote has several steps: first, you define the devices you want to control.  Then you ...
  • Try the Logitech Harmony Remote options. They are a bit pricey and not exactly simple to configure, but once you've got it set up it just works. I've been using one for years and can't remember ...
  • Try the DVDFab Media player.  Or the VLC player.  I don't think the MS software is smart enough to properly decode MTS files.
  • http://www.freecommander.com/ I too used PowerDesk for years and liked it a lot. But I stopped when it developed a bug (copying a folder actually moved it, with no warning) and there was no fix. I ...

    Thanks for the correction - I was not aware that there were 2 different kinds.
  • Replied in I do
    I used a nice utility named JunctionLinkMagic when I installed my first SSD boot drive.  I used to to relocate some directories off my boot drive to a secondary HDD.  The links allowed me keep the ...
  • Flickr accepts all kinds of video but it limits any particular one to 1 GB in size.
  • Even though I switched to Excel shortly after it came out it's sad to see yet another piece of IBM disappear.  That company has withered into a mere shell of what it once was.  A sad story indeed.
  • Looks like a very clever edit of hand-held video and a gyro-stabilized gymbal mount on a bicycle.  Or maybe a skateboard.
  • Yes, same here - but there were 2 issues: 1. Most of the time the sky was completely overcast and there was some rain falling - usually just a light drizzle - but there was enough mist etc. to dim ...
  • Created discussions Iceland GX7 pics & vids
    https://flic.kr/s/aHsk3MfsjF Surprisingly I found Iceland to be one of the most photogenic places I've been to.  The trick is to go after tourist season and before it gets really cold.  The entire ...
  • There were 2 key issues for me: 1. I wanted an NLE that would handle AVCHD (1920x1080) files directly, along with still images that I could manipulate with pan/zoom effects (the "Ken Burns" effect.) ...
  • I've been doing that using Vegas for several years now.  I looked at all the editors that would take AVCHD input directly and settled on Vegas because it seemed to have the most straight-forward ...
  • Replied in No
    Coax is, by definition, shielded, so no problem with crosstalk. Phone cable is unshiedled solid copper, but standard voice has no frequencies over 10KHz so there is no problem with that. Cat5 is ...
