  • Thank you. Yes, you make an excellent point, ultra-violet exposure is a major factor in the development of cataracts. Effective eye protection (good sunglasses or prescription glasses with UV ...
  • Replied in Good Luck!
    Do not worry about this. Cataract surgery is very minor. It's very safe and highly effective too. They do millions of them every year. The best advice I can offer is to find a really good ...
  • I hear you. The halos and glare have been horrible for the past year or two. Also, the complete lack of detail in the shadows has made night time driving a serious challenge. I guess this surgery ...
  • Thank you guys for all of the kind words. As Jim correctly guessed, I had cataract surgery. There's some hassle involved (lots of eyes drops) but it's a very simple and safe procedure. My Doc has ...
  • Created discussions Taking a break...
    For reasons completely unrelated to some recent mudslinging here, I'll be taking a break from DPR and computers in general. I had eye surgery yesterday and some tasks like using a computer really ...
  • I broadly agree with that statement. But I'm not willing to assume that this unspecified data is harmless. Trust but verify, and all that. But the verification part is made more tricky by the fact ...
  • I think it's a shame that more people don't view Windows and Linux as complementary. There is real scope for constructive discussion about which is a better fit for specific tasks. Some of us use ...
  • I shared exactly the same concern. But, so far, it's working out better than I thought it would.
  • Yes, these articles highlight just how pervasive the telemetry has become. The instrumentation has tentacles that reach out all of the way through the system. I'm sure it can be tamed but fear that ...
  • I dunno. I am still hoping that we can starve the trolls to death. I've made some progress with the Ignore User feature and I encourage other members to try it too. It doesn't cost much to try, right?
  • This is probably the best article I have seen on the topic. It seems to be comprehensive and accurate. An excellent analysis of the issues with some very specific, practical and understandable ...
  • It's a discussion about the operation of the PC Talk forum, in the PC Talk forum. That is very on-topic, in my opinion. And it appears that a number of the most constructive regular posters share ...
  • Yes, several other regular contributors have suggested the same thing. It's a reasonable and constructive suggestion so I will definitely adopt it.
  • Sure, the topic is controversial. What's wrong with that? Mature adults should be able to discuss controversial topics in a constructive and courteous manner. Obviously, controversial topics ...
  • Usenet anyone?
  • The First Amendment (for which I have the highest respect) does not apply here. This is a private venue with rules of conduct defined by the owners. Those rules are spelled out clearly here: http:/ ...
  • Created discussions To the Moderators
    In my humble opinion, this forum is going down the tubes fast. I don't mind some sarcasm, humor, topic drift, etc. Heck, I've been guilty of all those and more. But recently we've seen thread after ...
  • That's correct. The question is... how fast does the answer come back? Instant, a fraction of a second, or several seconds? Need to try several addresses including some that haven't been accessed ...
  • Yes. File | Open As... In the File Open dialog set "Open As" to "Camera Raw". Select a JPEG and it will open the file in Adobe Camera Raw.
  • I'm quite sure MS have managed to speed a few things up. But, overall, I don't think you're going to see any big performance changes with Win 7 .v. Win 8.1 .v. Win 10. I certainly haven't been ...
