  • I mentioned the topic because it seems that certificate-lacking websites will soon be off the Internet, as ISPs control what they present to you. Just today on Yahoo, a notification appeared ...
  • No. Why bother? The average thief who breaks into your home will not have time or expertise to restore your data files from backup USB HDD and find the compromising data. It's much more likely that ...
  • Replied in Reliability
    Amazon shows this Inspiron 17.3 when searching for "17.3" instead of 17. It is not very inspiring, but perhaps better choices are available on the Dell website. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron ...
  • Yesterday I read that Google was on Symantec's case for playing fast and loose with SSL certificates. Symantec used to be a well-respected certificate authority. https://arstechnica.com/security/20 ...
  • What are your graphics cards doing? Based on the CPUID HWMonitor that Simon recommended, mine is mostly displaying stuff on the screen. For a typical FHD video in H.264/M4A, utilization is under ...
  • Replied in Reliability
    Is there a Dell Inspiron or Latitude with 17" screen? There isn't a 17" XPS. The Dell website is somewhat confusing to navigate, so I couldn't really tell. Amazon shows an 18" Alienware. My wife ...
  • We have a Windows XP computer at home that has VGA only. It still works fine. There's no particular reason to do this unless the OP (J Posthuma) wants to drive multiple monitors. VGA works without ...
  • Do any ISPs promise, or for a premium guarantee, not to divulge customer information to 3rd parties? Does the VPN service in e.g. Opera allow anonymization of IP address and/or connection information?
  • Definitely. I tried putting the (taskbar) panel on the right side, but much of the time when I clicked the X button to close a full-screen window, it would bring up the windows Menu. For the clock, ...
  • It's working fine now, and might have been working fine for a while. Everything I use in the panel - Menu, application shortcuts, active programs, workspace switcher, WiFi, volume, battery, ...
  • I didn't download them because the screenshots on the web do not show a graph, just a bunch of boring device information in a dialog box. I did try the intel_gpu_top and intel_gpu_time commands, ...
  • Is the "slightly larger EVF" just wishful thinking on your part, or is there any reason to believe it might happen? The X-E2S and X-T20 have the same .62x viewfinder magnification. It does seem ...
  • Looks like the previous model Dell U2412M is still for sale on Amazon US, at about the same price as the similar U2415. The U2412M has VGA port instead of HDMI. It's not really wide gamut, although ...
  • Created discussion thread It's 11:59, what is my GPU doing?
    With Task Manager (and similar applications) I have good visibility into my 4 CPU cores, memory, and networking. But GPU does not appear. I'd like to know what the GPU is doing when I watch FHD or ...
  • Cool, thanks for the information! It hasn't been discussed on the Retouching forum, but that is mostly an improve-this-image forum. Here's the Review & News article about it: https://www.dpreview.c ...
  • Replied in Jpg shrinker
    I'm glad you found a good solution that fits into your workflow! It seems like a good program but probably not worth $149, the B&H price today. Sometimes it goes on sale for $60. What it does is ...
  • Replied in Jpg shrinker
    Here are problems with it: (1) At similar Q (quality) level, JPEG files are bigger than with other encoders (2) Extraneous ...
  • Thanks for reporting back. Glad it works for you. My version of gThumb (3.2.7) does not support ICC v2 or v4 color profile, i.e. it is not color managed, but perhaps that has changed in a more ...
  • Replied in Jpg shrinker
    I took one of your photos (styal-lodge-wedding-14), removed the XMP, and changed the chroma subsampling from 1x1 to 2x1. Now it's 84KB instead of 96KB. That photo was set to JPEG quality 93, which ...
  • Thanks for the answers, CyberSimba! You are correct, however I'm not sure I believe those charts. Oddly X-T20 has more DR starting at ISO 800, possibly from updated sensor or firmware upgrade. Does ...
