    As the o/p.... I migrated to Thunderbird. It's tolerable. There is simply no solution to #1 or #2 for Eudora. I believe that this is simply a case of a creaky database... after it reaches a certain...

    Hey thanks. The power setting was set to 'Always On' but when I looked under 'Advanced'... the setting for HD was sleep after 20 minutes. Weird. I thought 'Always On' meant, 'Always On'. Didn't...

    Do I really need Java?

    I just installed Win8 and it seems to install Java. Why? Do I actually -need- this for anything useful? I'd rather dump it if not.

    I understand this is a broad question. Sorry in advance for the windiness.

    I have a machine that still runs XP (don't laugh) which I use for web development. I got one of the $30 Win8...
  15. Will I Be Able To First-Time Install Directly From 8.1 Update?

    Hi,

    I bought the original $30 download way back in October. Never installed it as I just found the whole 'tiles' thing so obnoxious. Apparently, 8.1 will bring back a start menu. Huzzah!

    I...
