Eric Carlson's recent activity

  • I bought ACDSee back in 1996. I don't use it anymore.
  • Replied in Stone cold OFF
    I use the same UPS. I also have one of those power centers from the 90's, but I don't use it.
  • I have an automatic power strip that senses the power drop when I turn off or sleep my computer and turns off other items that are plugged into it. I could plug my monitors into it, but I let them ...
  • Replied in Stone cold OFF
    That's so retro.
  • FIOS wants me to upgrade from 50/50 Mbps to 75/75 Mbps, but I can't imagine any way that I would notice the difference. I'm actually getting around 60/60 Mbps already anyway.
  • Cool looking test. I got similar results to other tests: 63/64Mbps on my 50/50Mbps FIOS connection.
  • Replied in Second Monitor
    In that case, you can use any monitor for a second monitor. I've had several combinations of 2 or 3 monitors connected at once, often different resolutions. If the colors and brightness don't have ...
  • Verizon FIOS, using my own ASUS dual band AC router for WiFi. I turned off WiFi on the FIOS router, and plugged my wireless router into the FIOS router via GigaBit Ethernet.
  • I pay for 50/50Mbps, and I get more like 60/60 give or take a few. And that speed holds true on both my direct wired desktop PC and my Android phone on WiFi. So all is good here.
  • Heidi uses her Kindle Paperwhite with the light off, and she reads several books a week on it, so you can still get the Paperwhite and turn off the light. I use mine with the light on, but don't ...
  • There are tons of blue light filter Android apps.
  • I ended up going for the $20 Camtasia and SnagIt bundle, so I have them if needed, and so I can try out Camtasia since many businesses use it.
  • Just download the Windows 10 install media from Microsoft and use your valid Windows 8 license key to do a clean install of Windows 10. It also works with valid Windows 7 licenses.
  • If you can find $20, there is a $20 humble bundle of Camtasia 9 and SnagIt 13 and other apps, but it will end in a few days. It's 1 version behind the latest release of Camtasia, but it's a very ...
  • Awesome upgrade for $7.
  • Replied in Why not MESH?
    I cover my 3,000 sf house with a single ASUS RT-AC68U (T-mobile version, updated to ASUS firmware). And those routers support their own mesh if you want to add more routers.
  • It should be easy to remove. What model is the computer? One of us should be able to help you find the removal instructions.
  • I've bought cables from Amazon. It will be under $10. You don't need anything fancy. If you were local to me, I could give you one of my extra DVI cables.
  • DVI has been around for a long time. Glad your monitor has DVI. I thought it might. Make sure to compare the new monitor to the old monitor, both via DVI, to help you decide. An old monitor can ...
  • Are you sure the monitor doesn't also have a DVI-D connector?
