    [groan] :-)
  • Some sites I visit looking for specific info offer such "helpful" utilities...but those sites rarely have any useful content; mostly sheer clickbait. Video is something I haven't experience with ...
  • Replied in Suggestion
    Awww, too bad. Usually ranters of that caliber just never give up until they've either had the last word or the thread limit is reached...and often not even then. If you think there was more to be ...
  • January 14, 2020 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet I like it fine, but there are users who don't. I doubt if we're going to see major changes WRT user ...
  • It was sufficiently unusual that I wondered why they did it; just saving the cost of keeping the activation server alive didn't seem adequate justification for a freebie. After thinking about it ...
  • Well to be charitable to Adobe (not that they deserve it, heh): As I recall reading about this a while back in some long-ago forum thread from that period, Adobe was quickly pressured into ...
  • Agreed. There are many situations where the scene DR is low enough that neither the sensor nor the lens will be a limiting factor. And thanks for the excellent work you've done and made publicly ...
  • Correct, but some utilities are, by their nature, potentially going to do many more registry rewrites than, say, an ordinary application software install. And as you say, you can't really know all ...
  • I'm a latecomer to this thread, but just in case no one else has already mentioned this, Iliah has had some interesting things to say about the limiting effects of glare and flare on dynamic range: ...
  • Proof? And what of all the other third-party utilities?
  • Replied in Suggestion
    Yes, but it's been a while since we had such a long, intense, and entertainingly fanatical rant in PC Talk. I'm glad I finally looked at this thread; the title was unpromising for my interests, but ...
  • Nor would I, and I understand the attraction of such a utility. However, I never use any third-party utilities that I think have a high potential to modify a Windows install in a way that might ...
  • I looked at Affinity's raw capabilities briefly, and didn't see anything to interest me. I only use PSP X8 and Affinity as per-pixel editors. Either one seems good enough for my modest editing needs.
  • Replied in Malwarebytes
    If you right-click on those drives in Explorer, does Malwarebytes have an entry in your right-click menu? That works for me to scan an additional internal drive.
  • If Adobe gave a hoot about CS2 and didn't want it pirated, they'd simply have kept an activation server running as before and never released the unprotected version. For a company that size, how ...
  • It was a shame that PoS ran that long. If it had the grace to die immediately, a company I worked for would have replaced our Windows 3 PCs with Sun workstations a lot sooner. :-)
  • Hey, my Dunlavys don't need a forklift! Just a sturdy hand truck. ;-)
  • I have a graphics program that was originally written in 1995 and updated in 1999. It still runs on Windows 10. This is exactly why after owning one of the very first Macs, I've never bought another. ...
  • I've seen a similar situation. ISTR I fixed it by installing AOMEI Partition Assistant (free) on a spare PC, attaching the recalcitrant drive, and deleting all the partitions on it. http://www.aome ...
  • Very neat and well-organized; mine's a fair bit more chaotic. The (hidden) space between the back of the motherboard and the case cover is a rat's nest of wires and cables. The HAF-X was the only ...
