  • I have two Dell U2412 monitors. No uniformity problems ever. However one monitor lost blue color saturation faster than the other, so they had to be recalibrated. They are quite old, probably 5 years.
  • The GNU General Public License version 2 (GPL-2.0) under which the Linux kernel is licensed requires companies to contribute back any code changes they make. There have been lawsuits about this, ...
  • I never heard of Internet Download Manager until now, so no, I have not encountered this. If it were me, I would uninstall IDM immediately. But that was not your reaction, so let me ask, what was ...
  • Thanks very much, Ben! If you have time to post a photo of the lens and hood on your X-A3, I'd appreciate it. I assume the 15-45 has a non-rotating front element, and the recommended lens hood must ...
  • I had an F550 that did not suffer from one-sided softness. I would say its main problem was too-warm color balance. F900 was about perfect in this series. On this river trip, a frog jumped suddenly ...
  • Nice studies in backlighting! (except the last) I like 'em, and they are very unusual.
  • I have a Galaxy also, early model, the last one with replaceable battery, whatever number that was. On a pixel level the images are OK in good light. But the flash doesn't work very well, or at ...
  • Canon vs Nikon was always an issue, but it's true that the other two were not because they hadn't been invented yet. Film vs digital was the frequently tiresome controversy, even well after it ...
  • Created discussion thread GIMP 2.10 reaches 2nd release candidate
    Just saw this on Reddit, so I haven't had time to try it, but I'll report back when I do. https://www.gimp.org/news/2018/04/17/gimp-2-10-0-rc2-released/
  • Sorry to be unclear. I was agreeing with Austinian that the Alienware Aurora is the best choice. Dell charges a lot more (too much) for the Aurora with SSD. As you implied, HDD can be upgraded to ...
  • Ha ha. Can you buy it with SSD instead of HDD? Windows 10 on HDD is kind of like running Lightroom on a Celeron.
  • It's interesting that the Dell P2715Q gets only 4 stars on Amazon. I'm not sure what monitor to suggest as an alternative, but this one gets a lot of 1 star negative reviews. Some seem like quality ...
  • Linux has "visual diff" GUI programs, Meld and Kdiff3. Certainly Windows has something like that, but so far nobody has posted about it.
  • You can install it from here https://www.cygwin.com/ To run the programs we recommended, you use the Cygwin terminal, which is like CMD (formerly DOSPRMPT) but better, and similar to PowerShell ...
  • How is Cygwin not native? It is a regular application that runs under any version of Windows.
  • I have Windows CE in my car. Ford MySync is based on it. Buggier than a spring day in Alaska. Giving up on CE was probably the right decision. Linux just works. More info from El Reg: https://www.t ...
  • Data formats: 9-track reel to reel, QIC, 8mm, DAT, DLT, possibly others. Do you think LTO is different? better? If so please make your case. To be fair, I found VHS tapes more durable than DVDs. ...
  • Maybe. But my experience with tape is that it's somewhat write-only. Seems OK at backup time, and at verification time, but a couple years later, fuhgeddaboudit! That is New Yorkese meaning your ...
  • Recently I installed Linux on a laptop with HDD, and the difference between Windows 10 and Linux was like night and day. Windows 10 really needs an SSD because it hits the storage subsytem really ...
  • Replied in Next step?
    Yes, I hate it, and would not run it if given a choice. But I'll grudgingly admit that it probably saved Windows, because 8 was almost universally loathed. Windows is now #2 worldwide behind ...
