    An interesting read.
    Home Internet setup became very simple here at one point when the ISPs started providing modems with routers built in. Of course they had to be better configured than the...

    Just a note about mirrored drives. Many NAS units have the option of mirroring the drives. Thus you copy to the NAS and it automatically mirrors everything to a second drive. They're on the network...

    I've adopted StartPage to use Google Search without user tracking.
    I considered going back to using personal domain email to avoid that one but then I realized the majority of people I correspond...

    Yep - I have clients who do NOT want their customer data stored on US servers due to Homeland Security. They seek web hosting elsewhere.

    Nice idea, but some security features require it and as Satrow notes above, its not the only way you're tracked. Wifi, Cell towers, and IP too.

    Thanks - great article and I agree. I write, so I maintain a searchable digital library on my computer. Very handy for references, quotes etc. I load stuff I want to read elsewhere onto a cheap...

    Sorry, mbiggs but its just a Ford vs Chevy argument. Each has their pros and cons. And you way overstate your case. I've maintained many Linux systems, both server and desktop and they certainly...

    I learned long ago that many of the general repair tools were mostly useless. And some caused more problems than they fixed. Registry repair tools in particular. Many have all those lame warnings,...

    re: Step 2
    I don't use IE much but opened it to check.
    In Win7 is was called "Enable Enhanced Protection Mode"
    It was unchecked. When I checked it and restarted, it warned me that it was disabling...

    Myself, I just use a few things built into Windows 7.
    Just like paper world, filing everything on your desktop just creates big piles. What about just using Windows Explorer? Create a folder...

    Thanks Fred. Back in the 90's, the use of Zip, Syquest and other such drives would bump my CD drive letter around, causing problems with where it was expected to be by some software. I got in the...

    Note that some Microsoft programs will "insert" the image as inline or may even imply its attaching. You may have to look further in the menus to find attachment.

    Gmail has a proper attachment...

    I'd agree with Kritz. If you send a photo inline, in the body of the email, it will sometimes be "translated" into code. If you attach the image, it won't be. Yet it will display typically after the...

    I don't see such a setting in Firefox or Chrome. Bottom left, I get an Earth box.
    I like the older version better as well. You could more incrementally zoom, for example. Not so much stuff covering...

    Excellent video. Have seen this and some related trends. Not entirely funny but worth the time.

    Interesting article.
    For myself, I've found other hassles with both apps. OneNote for example, adds the extra code junk like Word that has to be removed if you plan to post to the web and such....

    Google Groups is a good choice. It should be noted that it depends on how its configured. I'm a member of a group that is distributed only by the Admin. Yahoo Groups I used to recommend as it was...

    Backspacer - Android is a flavour of Linux. The reason Linux has the largest base is because of Android devices.
    When Android took off, Microsoft lost half it's market share of devices in a couple...

    Like Dave, I'd mention LastPass also- I use it on the desktop so adding it to Android is a no-brainer. You really don't want 2 password systems.

    I also use ESET AV on the desktop and see they...

    Thanks for all your research, Susan

    I've noticed something new recently. On a Win7 64 box, the last 2 times I've had an update for Win Defender, it's failed. (today and 2 days ago) When I try to...

    There are circumstances where you still need Image, Image Resize. But that's a great overview of PhotoShop's Save for Web. I generally just use 2 up and tweak the image for faster productivity.

    When I purchase hardware and such a take a moment to mark the date, purchase location, model# and serial numbers. Makes it much easier to find receipts, etc. I used to do this on the paperwork that...

    I use the full version of Acrobat for edting PDF's. But for reading, I found Acrobat Reader became a pig - slow loading and bloated.

    Like several here, I quite like Foxit. I've tried a few others...
