  • Best of luck, malch.  You'll be missed while you're gone. I hope everything goes well with the other eye.
  • This is exactly the reason I'm advising my clients not to upgrade to Win10, at least not right away.  I've seen too many issues with Windows Updates over the years, which is why I have my client's ...
  • While there are probably other programs that can do this, I know that Photoshop can.  Photoshop can open both PDF and Postscript (.ps) files.  Once the file is open in Photoshop, just SaveAs JPEG.
  • Just a minor clarification.  The printer profile has nothing to do with calibrating the monitor.  It is just used (by you) for soft proofing the image.  Where the monitor ...
  • As Howard mentioned, I'd be surprised if the printer actually wanted the image in CMYK mode.  However, if they do want it in CMYK, you need to find out what CMYK standard they are using.  Just to ...
  • Mike, unfortunately that printer uses a SCSI interface and will only work with Windows 2000/XP.  If it had a USB interface, you could install XP as a Virtual Machine (VM) and print to it from ...
  • I think I know what you're referring to (KMSPico), however what I used was not that.  No software was installed.
  • Trevor, I don't know of any way to activate the Core version, however the Pro version can be activated from a "clean" install (not upgrade). Which version did you install? If you have the Pro ...
  • Birk, you're correct in that you can't activate the Core version of Win10, at least not yet.  However, if you install the Pro version, you can activate it using a few administrator commands in an ...
  • Assuming you have one or more unused SATA ports on your motherboard, the simplest and cheapest way to add an eSATA port is to purchase an eSATA bracket.  It mounts in an empty card slot and has ...
  • Yes, my understanding is that regardless of the OS version you came from, if you signed up for the Win10 Insider Preview, Win10 will be free to use for as long as you participate in the Insider ...
  • You didn't mention what version of Windows you're running, however most have a utility called "Disk Cleanup".  It will safely delete unneeded files.  Unless you know what you're doing, you're ...
  • Scott, I don't hate wi-fi, I love it.  My 3 smart TV's, 3 Rokus, Plex media server, and laptop are all connected via wi-fi.  As malch pointed out, adding the second router (configured as a WAP) ...
  • I did the same.  My cable modem & main router are in my office at one end of my house, while my smart TV & Roku are at the other end.  I ran some Cat 5E cable down to the basement (ranch house), ...
  • When I bought a new laptop last year, I also wanted a matte screen.  I ended up getting a Dell Latitude (business model) from Dell Outlet.  Although it uses a TN screen (gamma change with viewing ...
  • Are you saying that merely changing your modem from the Motorola/Arris SB6121 to the SMC modem gave the the speed increase noted?  I'm really surprised that changing modems would make that much ...
  • Replied in Monitor / Tv
    Sky, yes the Roku is only used to capture the streaming video from the Plex server and feed it to the TV via HDMI (used to use composite video with my old CRT TV).  I download the separate ...
  • Replied in Monitor / Tv
    Sky, I've been using the free Plex Media Server software for several years now with great results.  I have a Roku connected to my Vizio smart TV (recent purchase) to access Plex.  They have ...
  • With a scale of 50, and 5 bars, that would be ~25, which doesn't sound bad.  However, the number of TCP connections depends upon how many apps you have running that access the internet.  So, ...
  • Sky, TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a standard that defines how to establish and maintain a network conversation over which application programs can exchange data.  I just checked my ...
