  • As some posters have suggested, before adding more or improved hardware, it is better to first work out why it is slowing down. One that used to bite me was having explorer wanting to check a ...
  • This might be of some help....
  • When you calibrate a device, the process is to map the colour space of that device. Normally there's a two step process, adjust and the measure. On some screens, presets make things worse, so some ...
  • Although I have no personal experience in this one, UFRaw + GIMP should work. UFRaw does specifically state support for your camera....
  • I've bought a couple of Realtek 8811AU based usb wifi dongles and they work very well with Linux. I don't use the combo of Windows and WiFi hardware, so can't comment on that. The trick is finding ...
  • I've used this in the past, although it seems to reach no higher than 8.1, and I've not used on anything above Win 7, it has worked reliably for me in the past. There's a downside as well, so with ...
  • For those that like a bit of history, you should go back in time to when all the noise of the activation / on-line / subscription benefits were given. It is all quite simple, the one time payment ...
  • Replied in Irfanview
    Irfanview is never a bad idea to have, but it's not an editor, although it can so minor touch ups. Not colour managed (if I remember correctly). But it has loads of plugins. A more editor like ...
  • If the website was the ting to go on, I'd be getting myself a lot of really bad software. I found PWP through this website a long time ago and simply did a monkey test. Not knowing any editor, but ...
  • Legally free, high quality photo editing software? Here you go: Picture Windows Pro Whilst the newer version is in beta, the old one is free to download, install and run. It's somewhat different ...
  • Best is a word that means different things to different people. I use all the mentioned one, except Safari. I use Firefox most, because it has very powerful tools to deal with all the stuff ...
  • But correct, windows keeps settings on previously detected USB devices. Just disconnect the USB devices, clear out the memory and plug them back in. Windows will reload the driver and rediscover ...
  • There is also a program called Alienbrain that does what you ask, but it's not exactly bargain basement pricing. Still, for a business related solution, might be a great match. No doubt there are ...
  • It doesn't. NAS is storage only, there's some software on most, but in essence it is just a large, networked disk with some capacity to cope with hardware problems, not human error. But a external ...
  • You cannot eliminate operator error totally, as your approach requires operator intervention to move data from A to B manually. This is why people are saying a network would be easier. You can ...
  • After recovering from the shock of hearing people have PC's that are not on a network, I can say, it will work, but for me, it is too much hassle and would therefore cause me to not sync enough. ...
  • Synlogy is recommending you go for a mirrored configuration. This means the data is duplicated, but should one drive go down, you can still work with the other. The NEC rep is referring to a ...
  • I remember reading that there are some caveats, but I've forgotten them. From memory it had to do with the device recognition. But one thing that comes to mind, with persistence setup I can choose ...
  • That's a good link, but what I didn't notice at first, is the reference to CASPER is a Ubuntu thing. Debian uses a different way to accomplish the same. As I was to find out the hard way. I tried ...
  • Hi, The feature you're referring to is a persistent install and it is supported. The idea is to install the ISO on a USB disk, then use a second partition on that usb disk to store a persistent ...
