    My usual preference when dealing with a large/hi-rez monitor is to run the monitor at the highest possible resolution. Then adjust your application or system settings to resolve individual problems...

    You might want to consider upgrading. WMP 9 is pretty old! There's a WMP 11 out (for a long time!) and it has a decent shot at resolving some of your issues.

    You know how every year hard drives are bigger? Well that's because the bits get smaller. Therefore the fonts have to get smaller to reflect the smaller bit size. You don't want to stand in the...

    I remember about 5 years ago, there was a particular patch for XP that would install over and over again. It took me several days (or weeks) to even notice.

    My work pattern, which I only hold to rather loosely, is to hibernate on weekdays and perform full shutdowns on weekends. This accomplishes the goal of periodically giving Windows a full restart on...

    This may sound trite, but it's worth stating. With such a message the implication is that either the Snipping Tool, or Windows, changed. The Snipping Tool is actually part of Windows so we need to...

    I think we need to be realistic. While we can kill Flash with fire, that is merely a means to an end. Advertisers want your time and attention. The potential demise of Flash as a technology won't...

    I thought that the Mac ban on Flash only applied to mobile devices? AFAIK, OSX still has flash clients available and commonly installed.

    My guess is that BATcher means Windows Update Services (WUS), which is of course the standard client-driven updater built into Windows. I'm not familiar with the WUSA acronym.

    What sort of age range child are we talking about here? I ask because older children are often given more latitude and the suggestions may vary by age.

    On the other hand, if you're serious about...
