    In the photo at the link, there appears to be a camera in the picture on a Manfrotto tripod identical to mine. A lot of cameras these days have WiFi (as well as a built-in mike) – a couple of mine do.

    I'd suggest trying an open source or other third-party alternative: VLC and MediaMonkey are both excellent (and free).

    Hey, that's a different Lightning from WordPerfect Lightning or Avanquest Lightning PDF or who-knows-how-many-other Lightnings.

    I think I'll take a look at that - I recently discovered and began...

    Membership in the local public library here is free, and a great many DVDs, including opera, are available to borrow free of charge.

    It was with X3 that I purchased Mail, and it has its own serial number. Some or all of my installations are of the Home and Student variety, and I have a nearly-forgotten four-CD Family Pack that...

    Lightning has long been a feature of WordPerfect Office, for which Thunderbird is the recommended mail client. WP had their own Mail at one time, but I think it was a flash in the pan (for which I...

    You might give Copernic Desktop Search ‘free trial’ a try. Version 4.3 is the latest I am certain of (and have myself), but they also have a version 5 on the site without calling it a beta.
