    Actually, most businesses are run by people who are in way over their heads. So they tend to follow the latest management fad. It's safer that way. I would expect to see some cloud-like data...

    You mean, like cars and refrigeration and immunizations? It would seem that we are already there.

    I think the one sure thing in this world is that things will always keep changing. Always. And...

    I spent a lot of time in 2012 trying to find a useable GAAP-compatible bookkeeping application and a bricks-and-mortar quality Point of Sale application for Linux and met with complete failure on...

    I don't think so. Remember the howling outrage over Windows 8? It's the simple "consumers" who want simpler technology. The diehards want more power. I just built my first computer since 1993...

    Bingo!

    The descent of computers into consumerism and the complete and total focus of the industry on that sector appalls me. Even this article mentions the dire, grim future of Windows as "the...

    Ah, I hadn't thought of that. But Ubuntu has announced its notepad version and it looks a lot slicker than Android. At least the stuff they show looks a lot better than the stuff on my phone.

    Thank you for this article! I will be studying it and these comments very closely because I've been pretty worried about Android security.

    That was a different system than the current one. My original question remains unanswered, but probably because there is no answer.

    Actually, I sheepishly thought the same thing. Then I remembered that this system does a lot of disk intensive stuff and I watched the disk activity in the Resource Monitor and decided that was the...

    Well they sure give it a prominent place in the Resource Monitor for such a useless number. That article also suggests that one way to see if you are getting too many hard faults is to keep opening...

    Nevermind... Sometimes it is the simplest things that trip you up. The laptop had been out in the world so she switched the network to Public and IP address to DHCP, then forgot to switch it back...

    Remote desktop won't connect

    Scenario: Two computers, same LAN, both Windows 7 Pro. We'll call them computers A and B. For a few years they could connect to each other using RDP. Now B can connect to A using Remote Desktop,...

    How many hard faults are too many?

    I know what a hard fault is: a piece of code is not in RAM and must be retrieved from virtual. What I want to know is: how many hard faults per second are too many?

    Bruce, I'm sorry you feel attacked, but if you aren't careful about your facts, it defeats your whole purpose. My Mom's use of 5.25" floppies long after your claimed museum date was an example of...

    Your argument would carry more weight without the exaggerations, and blanket statements are always suspect in my mind. My mother still used my old Osborne I computer with dual DSDD drives into the...
