  • I run Firefox on Android and Windows 10. I install Ublock Origin on both and also install NoScript on Windows 10. I also have the full paid Adguard app running on my Android phone (which is not ...
  • Replied in Office Depot
    I tried that chair and several others at Office Depot today, It's pretty good, but I don't think it suits me as well as I would like. Unfortunately the chairs I liked most were around $300 on sale.
  • Replied in Office Depot
    I've been looking for another comfy desk chair for sitting for long hours. I'll have to check it out. I would prefer something with real leather instead of bonded leather, since all my bonded ...
  • Replied in Agent Ransack
    I also use Agent Ransack free version. https://www.mythicsoft.com/agentransack/
  • Interesting. I have a USB floppy drive that came with one of our old laptops that I use occasionally either to access old disks or to boot and run a memory test or hard drive test.
  • Replied in ISO image
    Yes, creating an ISO copy then mounting the ISO as a drive is also a method I've used many times, in addition to the other methods everyone has mentioned.
  • I too have used the shared DVD drive method many times in the past with success.
  • Replied in Firefox can too
    Firefox can too. I have it on all my devices.
  • Yes, the colors thing.   (probably not just that, but they often are colorful).
  • First, make regular backups of your bookmarks. Second, set up cloud syncing of your bookmarks in your browser. It's easy in Firefox and Chrome. I haven't tried it in IE or Edge. It also allows you ...
  • Agreed. I've installed current versions of Windows 10 on some older hardware (8 years old) with no issues.
  • The 1TB Blue and Black are the same single platter 7,200 RPM 3.5" drive. Buy whichever is cheaper. That's what I have for my second drive. First drive is a 128GB SSD. And I had an older black 1TB ...
  • There is a lot of SDR (Software Defined Radio) now, and you can get a good RTL-SDR USB dongle with some antennas for under $30, and you can get a nice SDRPlay RSP1 SDR receiver for a little over ...
  • Replied in DriveGLEAM
    Right. I haven't used a parallel port in several years. I have used serial ports and/or USB to serial adapters to connect to some of my ham radio gear since some of my older radios don't have USB ...
  • Replied in DriveGLEAM
    I see you resolved your issue and you are also using Linux, but I thought it might be worth mentioning DriveGLEAM in case anyone is interested (I have no relation other than as a user). The free ...
  • I use a separate microphone, so I can use my nice headphones (or nice speakers) for all listening. It sounds like the rear is set for communications default and the front is set for regular audio ...
  • Make sure your router is set to serve up local addresses (usually addresses like 192.169.1.x) via DHCP, so when the external Internet IP address changes your internal address remain unchanged. In ...
  • I totally agree with that. Those older Office menus were so much easier to find things on. It is very annoying to have to check every ribbon to try to find something, or to have to use the Help ...
  • I tried that on my computer (Windows 10), and it wouldn't show my internal hard drive as a destination. I wanted to backup the data on my C: SSD to my D: HDD. I do use FreeFileSync, manually, but ...
  • No, I definitely would not suggest going back to anything before Windows 7, and I like Windows 10, and have it on all of my active computers. I was just responding to your similarly nerdy comment ...
