  • Ah, OK.  The number of exemptions box was blank when I looked at it last night.  I needed to enable scripting on the FAA site before I could see the number of exemptions. I wrote the post that you ...
  • What is inaccurate in the article quote I posted? References, please. FWIW, here is a link to the FAA pages on the section 333 exemption process. See the What are the main requirements needed for ...
  • Which is why we measure color rendering ability.  Cameras "see" color differently than human eyes do.   Did you read Mark Banas's post (in this thread) about the TLCI spectral rendering test for ...
  • Well... 1 in 3 Patients Will Have Their Healthcare Records Compromised A legacy of lackluster electronic security in healthcare and an increase in the amount of online patient data will lead to an ...
  • Created discussion thread More forced Win 10 upgrades (maybe)

  • I started a thread about this a while ago.   Read the responses by Jim Cockfield Also  read what Jim posted on another thread about the same issue . I followed Jim's advice and eliminated the Win ...
  • Replied in I got one.
    The box says "micro-HDMI". It is real small--smaller than the micro-USB port. I don't have an adapter for this. I have an adapter that fits the smaller-than-standard-HDMI ports that are on my ...
  • Replied in I got one.
    I got one from BB a few hours ago and, thus far, it seems decent.  I haven't installed iProfilier and measured the screen gamut yet, but it looks good as near as I can tell.  I looked at a few of ...
  • I found a Logitech M557 last week at the bottom of a bargain bin at Best Buy last week and have been using it with the $100 Digiland tablet that I've posted about in other threads.   The reason I ...
  • I just checked Best Buy for low end Win tablets and see this Insignia™ - Flex - 8.9" - Tablet - 32GB for $149.99 that is most of what I wanted in a cheap Windows tablet that was better than my $100 ...
  • Even though I have a perfectly serviceable MS SP3, I've developed an interest in rock bottom Windows tablets. Because I'd just as soon not carry my expensive SP3 around if I can use something that ...
  • The cost of battery replacement came up before the SP3 was released in 2014. MS stated flately that out of warranty battery replacements would be $200. From a May, 2014 article: At last week's New ...
  • I ran into a similar problem with my Brother-in-law's computer. This happened a number of months ago, but as best I remember, some Googling got me to looking at the prefs.js file. Sometimes ...
  • Eh? I was replying to bananahead, not to the OP. Because apparently the US convention of formatting dates as MM/DD/YYYY is not universally understood. bananahead introduced a new topic about date ...
  • The US formats dates MM/DD/YYYY, so 11/12/2015 is November 12th, 2015. I prefer YYYY-MM-DD, because it sorts alphabetically in the correct order. And eliminates 11/12/2015 type confusion. Wayne
  • When I was getting ready to clone my spinner HD onto a SSD about a year ago, the big issue was the difference between sector alignment (I think) between spinners and SSDs.  There were a number of ...
  • Two articles from ZDNet: "How to disable Windows 10 Start menu ads" is a phrase I never thought I'd be writing, but here I am writing it. Such is life, I guess. Yes, ads are coming to the Windows ...
  • I got mine at Best Buy. It was advertised in last week's (Oct. 25) Sunday sale flier. It isn't on Best Buy's web site. If you get one, here are some good accessories: DIGITAL TREASURES Props ...
  • Gee, I wonder what Microsoft will do to increase W10's market share ? This aside, IMO, the PC industry isn't making much of an effort to put out compelling PCs. I was shopping for laptops recently ...
