  • Here's another solution (which looks fairly neat to me): http://www.kensington.com/us/us/v/4482/1670/laptop-locking-station#.U8CIOqAjY-U
  • Does your laptop have a "Kensington Slot"? Many do including my Lenovo. If so, the simplest thing would be one of the Kensington cable locks suitably anchored to your booth. http://www.kensington.c ...
  • Generally speaking, install the OS and all of your apps on the SSD. Place the temp/cache/swap files on the SSD also. The exception would be applications that consume a lot of storage (multiple GB) ...
  • I would go with the Nvidia because: 1. Their drivers have given me the least trouble over the years and 2. Their chipsets are fully supported by the apps that matter to me. Any performance ...
  • Looks like you may have it under control. Speaking as one who has handled 5000/day, written and maintained spam filters and more over a period of many years... using Gmail saved my life. Google's ...
  • The control panel setting doesn't do a whole lot. Just: 1. Stores the preference so that applications programs can interrogate Windows to find out which profile is selected as the default. The ...
  • Created discussions OT: What happens when...
    you strap a GoPro onto a drone and fly it through a serious firework display? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9KZ3jgbbmI I thought this was awesome and hope you folks enjoy it as much as I did.
  • Well, there are some rsync ports for Windows. Here's one: http://www.aboutmyip.com/AboutMyXApp/DeltaCopy.jsp I've never really tried it Windows to Windows. *nix to Windows can work although things ...
  • I've said pretty much the same thing here on a number of occasions, e.g.: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52208610 I absolutely do not suggest this approach is suitable for all users. It takes ...
  • Smacks head and groans... "Why didn't I think of that? Duh!" Great suggestion!
  • Here's my process: 1. I image the system drive (SSD) from time to time using Macrium Reflect. 2. I synchronize the data drives onto external backup drives using one of the excellent file sync ...
  • I really don't have any concerns about law enforcement or lawyers harassing me because I swapped two legitimate copies of Windows between two legitimately purchased Dell computers. I rather think ...
  • I have only needed to recover files from a memory card once. This when my daughter accidentally formatted her SD card. Piriform Recuva successfully rescued the images. I suggest folks buy only ...
  • I have multiple Dell systems all purchased with various versions of Windows at different times. And I have definitely swapped some of those licenses around between machines (but without making any ...
  • I always nuke them but I do take some precautions: 1. Reboot the system before you do so. Sometimes these files are needed by a pending RunOnce process. By performing a reboot you ensure that any ...
  • On the legal issues, you'll need to read all of the fine print, consult an attorney, yada yada, in this crazy age. I don't see a problem with "licensed for distribution only with a new PC" since I ...
  • Good point. I recently discovered I could do the same with Linux Mint Debian Edition and Cinnamon. It makes a huge improvement to images on my laptop with its less-than-stellar TN display. If you ...
  • I can't say this is terribly surprising but, as a Win 7 hold out, it's a little troubling. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/06/06/patch_piker_redmond_means_win_8_fixes_skip_7_researchers_say/ I ...
  • Not only that but the Spyder4Express puck has been well tested and found to be extremely solid. The standard Datacolor software is on the simple and lame side but if you want more control there ...
  • Created discussions Flash crashes solved
    I've been going nuts with Flash crashing on certain sites with certain browsers. Apparently, I'm not alone. The Protected Mode feature added to Flash in recent times is supposed to make things ...
