  • I have no idea how you would measure 1 and 2. Number 3 is a matter of opinion. But, like our esteemed president, just because Calson asserts something doesn't necessarily mean it is false. Registry ...
  • Yes, use of Internet Explorer is extremely dangerous, so if you are a married male and run it, your wife is likely to become a widow. ;-) Thanks BTW, I will do that. Hopefully I don't run any ...
  • Did you post the list anywhere, and/or are you willing to do so? I'm interested. What bothers me most is the fixed top menu that can't be dislodged even by Exocet missile. OTOH the F3 button (3 ...
  • False positives? Comodo was not studied in the av-comparatives test, nor was it rated by Consumer Reports. I run Outlook Web Access for email, and currently uBlock Origin says I have 854 ads ...
  • You can do that with messages.google.com, after reading the displayed QR code with your phone camera. Many Android phones still have microSD card, so you can put your music etc. on it and still ...
  • Is this the deskside? https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/cty/pdp/spd/alienware-aurora-r10-desktop What is HP 1-7 laptop? Maybe that should be HP 17" laptop, but which one? Thanks.
  • I like my Macbook. I have not used Chrome OS - isn't it just Linux with restrictions? One bad aspect of Android is that support expires too quickly. This isn't so bad for phones, which have ...
  • Agreed. Currently Consumer Reports has MSFT Defender rated lowest (61) among free software security suites, and Avast (82) ESET (81) and Kaspersky (81) rated highest among paid suites. Hard to say ...
  • So called Open DNS seemed to censor some of the Internet, but perhaps it was a coincidence of timing. This site says they filter out "malicious" pages. https://wikileaks.org/wiki/Alternative_DNS Pr ...
  • I did not like Open DNS (which by the way is closed source and owned by Cisco) because it has many useful websites missing. So I use Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 primary and Google 8.8.8.8 secondary. I've ...
  • Yes, it is a surprise that Ian's post has only one thumbs-up. Just goes to show that the ratings mechanism here doesn't work very well, or that intelligent posts are undervalued. https://www.dprevi ...
  • Erik is a genius with Lightroom, but this would look even better with catchlights in the eyes from fill-flash.
  • Maybe it's easier to find by searching for EXIF than xIFr. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/xifr/?src=search Anyhow, the thumbnail preview display seems to work for online images, ...
  • No laptop from before 2019 would have this. I hope I never have to buy a laptop with USB-C connected DisplayPort. Type-C connector is not durable enough for repeated unplug-plug cycles. I already ...
  • For the second one, fill flash (!) as Andrea advised. Unlike the "gold medal" X-T4, your X-T200 has handy pop-up flash. The first one is easily edited. Here is GIMP 2.10 with Shadows +100 and HSV ...
  • True, but most laptop PeeCees have only HDMI out, or USB-C . DisplayPort is rare on laptops. So get a monitor that can handle both.
  • I can't say if Defender is good enough and Malwarebytes isn't needed. But certainly I would not try to install Opera again. It might be considered Chinese malware. It's also possible that your ...
  • Thank you for the opinion. I have not investigated LoHalo and NoHalo myself. If you find any websites that make a convincing argument one way or the other, please post. Mostly I use ImageMagick for ...
  • Those algorithms (at your interesting linked page) look like the ones available with open source implementations in ImageMagick. Bicubic is the swiss army knife of resampling algorithms. It works ...
  • Depends on your goals. Bicubic responds better at 300% zoom because edges are smoother, but Lanczos gives the best impression of sharpness at 100% actual pixels or below, IMO. Definitely. Halos are ...
