  • Replied in Ransomware
    John Banner should have won an Emmy for this role, one of the most memorable in the entire history of television. P.S. I really like the name of KQED reporter Queena Kim, though I have never met ...
  • Created discussion thread TG-5 prone to overexposure
    After examining the samples galleries here and elsewhere, I have concluded that the TG-5 tends to overexpose. Or perhaps I should say, exposes more than I like. I guess one solution is to leave it ...
  • Replied in Ransomware
    Aha! SamSam ransomware usses JBoss exploits. JBoss is Linux based middleware from Red Hat. However I have not heard that KQED had Linux machines. Photos of their newsroom show PCs with signs ...
  • Replied in Ransomware
    Indeed! Other stories say it is not Petya, and is not not-Petya, but given that photos show KQED radio journalists holding Apple Macbooks, I assume the malware leverages the same SMB security hole ...
  • Why didn't you buy a laptop that has a pen already provided, such as the HP Spectre or Samsung Chromebook? If I were you, I'd trade in for a Spectre. They are beautiful and quite reasonably priced ...
  • I too found Cortana annoying and unwelcome. Unhelpful too. Clippy? The Black Viper website has lists of services that can be disabled on various versions of Windows. My wife followed their ...
  • Off by default on W 10 Enterprise (1703) but that might be due to a custom build. My wife says her indexing is on by default, W 10 Home. I feel that it's not worthwhile especially on an SSD with ...
  • I don't believe Irfanview actually converts the Raw data, it just uses the JPEG preview. RawTherapee does not seem at all buggy on Linux. As I posted in another thread, RT already seems to support ...
  • Replied in upgrade
    Here is a side by side of the X30 and X-T20 with 16-50 lens. It's a honkin' big lens in comparison, but not much weight difference! http://camerasize.com/compact/#703.421,563,ha,t Personally ...
  • Indexing is not enabled on my W10 machine, and I did not disable it. Perhaps this varies by Windows edition.
  • Windows search doesn't always work, so I feel it is useless to waste storage space and processor cycles indexing your files. Unlike ADMint, I feel it's best to not enable indexing (default is off, ...
  • Regarding memory, I agree also. But if you're editing video or have many applications installed (including Acrobat Pro which is foremost among space hogs) I'm not sure 250GB will be enough in the ...
  • Maybe this is normal but I find it spooky. Presumably the "Previous Windows Installation(s)" means the Windows.old file. I don't see any reason why this should change in size after the new Windows ...
  • TFT Central reviewed the I2357F but not the I2367F . They said it has "reliable sRGB gamut coverage" with 72% NTSC. PC Mag liked the I2367F saying it has good color and grayscale performance. I ...
  • Does not sound good. I use UNetbootin. The one I have is unetbootin-windows-625.exe. Select Diskimage and browse to your ISO file. Insert USB stick and click OK. See the screenshot below. As in the ...
  • Sir Hawkeye, I note that you have Nikon camera(s) so you're shooting 3:2 aspect ratio. Rather than get the short 'n' fat 16:9 ratio typical of HDTV, here is a monitor that's closer to 3:2. It is ...
  • OK, I tried to avoid asking, but I must ask. What did they do to OneNote? Are you simply objecting to purple? I can't see the point of OneNote. I could use Evernote on my phone or tablet because I ...
  • Removable battery! Removable battery!!  3800mAh. Ha ha. I'm not sure if Andoid phones use Google color balance, or whether it's up to the vendor. All my phones so far have been Sony and Samsung. ...
  • Thanks, must be merely the (ridiculously wide) wide angle. In whitewater kayaking videos, you can go over a waterfall and the GoPro makes it look like an easy class 2 drop. Wow, this is only $379. ...
  • Congratulations! Are you doing to be the photographer, or back-up photographer?
