    display contents of folder on hover ?

    I used to have an app that let you hover the mouse over a folder and you will see the contents display in a pop up area.. similar to the right click context feature. You could then choose a shortcut from that to open - all without ever opening the folder itself. I cant for the life of me find...

    Katz is dead?

    Yep it's dead. " What initially started out as a compromise has lead to an internal disagreement to the sites operation. There are many rumors floating around and even news articles, though I cannot say many are even close to the truth and it is far more complicated than what it seems...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    I agree. With your laptop : Pentium M 1.6 Ghz | 1GB DDR | Intel Extreme 2 | 15" TFT | 60GB | WinXP, you can get more done with server side apps these days than you could with local apps alone. Heck run Linux on that system and boost your productivity that much more - well at least make better...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    I'll turn that around on you. In what ways do we have cloud services that through a browser allows you to run applications with faster CPU speeds/power than you already have on your computer? Seems to me anything done through a browser will be limited in some ways as opposed to having the...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    I understand the need to use an online service. I think the issue is more is the idea behind "a cloud" a mere marketing gimmick or is it something more substantial. I still see nothing that makes "cloud computing" something new or worth a fancy catch phrase. Everything that you guys mentioned...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    O.k. a website and domain name for a small business I can understand, but to me this does not constitute use of "A cloud" the way the term is being bounced around today. As in the Microsoft commercials the term is used as the new hot place for all non tech people to go to for all of their tech...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    Frick, what makes you think these servers are so called secure - just because people call them secure servers? I don't know about this.. you never hear about Johnny's Pc getting hacked, always servers. I don't use banks. I pay cash for everything. I have bought houses, cars and boats as well as...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    I am very active on the net I just don't do computer related business on the net or run in the circles of people who use such terms. The more server side apps that contain more information there are it seems to me the more serious risk of identity theft thus this cloud is a bad thing indeed...

    Let's talk about this Cloud Computing business

    I had never heard the term referring to the internet as "The Cloud' till Microsoft came out with the new tv commercials. What Microsoft has to do with it, I still don't know. In general I understand "cloud computing" is a way of using internet software as services. We have been doing this since...

    cannot access file/or permissions

    Thanks.. I tried the guide and other tips and nothing worked.. In the end it was Comodo Internet Suite that was causing the problem. I uninstalled this crappy software and Poof I had access to all permissions again.

    I have a file i need to run on Windows 7 Home Premium. I get the error message saying "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." So I right click and choose Properties to access the permissions but I cannot. In...

    How do you communicate over the net?

    Thanks. I did forget those. I should have included them because I included Forums, but they don't really meet my criteria. ( thus perhaps I should remove forums from my list) If you just use a normal browser to connect they really don't belong. I am more interested in client based forms of...

    How do you communicate over the net?

    I am researching different types of ways people use the internet to communicate. I need other ideas. So far my list includes: AIM/Yahoo messenger/skype type programs E-mail Forums IRC (Internet relay Chat) SecondLife and OpenSim BBS's (Bulletin Board Systems) via Telenet MOO's and Muds...

    need list of usb bootable Operating Systems

    I will look into UNetbootin. I have looked and looked for a windows xp live cd and cannot find any. There are ways to do it but all seem very complicated and some may be outdated. I would not know which method to try - But a windows xp would be my choice of systems to do this with. OS X ? Isn't...

    need list of usb bootable Operating Systems

    I am looking for a good list of operating systems you can run from a usb or dvd. If not a list, then folks can just post their top picks. I want these to run from the usb/dvd without installing on the system or getting in the way of the system that exists on the hard drive. Thanks in...

    Need anti-virus app for special application

    It's not the real time scanning i'm worried about. In fact, if it would constantly scan just this one folder, that would be good. I have tried a few and am downloading more antivirus apps but so far they all want to scan other things besides just this one folder or I cant configure them to do...

    Need anti-virus app for special application

    I need an anti virus app that is really Top Notch that will only scan a certain folder I tell it to or scan the folder live or on demand. Only this one folder must be scanned. I do not want the app to scan the whole drive. What I am doing is using Sandboxie for my protection and downloads...

    Large Address Aware

    oh.. oh well.. worth a try at least. Lucky for me I do not have "stuttering, slowdowns, and running out of video memory" with most games. I find games not optimized for pc like Medal of Honor an x-box port gives more trouble than other games. For instance, Fallout New Vegas runs like a dream but...

    Large Address Aware

    o.k. so explain this app to me again.. what it does do it seems is make apps aware of the larger amount of memory so they can utilize that memory. is this not correct? So if my games crashes because it runs out of memory, this may stop that from happening - but won't it also help the game run...

    Computer Safety Help

    I disagree. Those business computers are doing just that.. business. They may be connected to the Net but they are not browsing the web and downloading files like home users would. The home user needs better more proven protection than windows firewall can deliver. I also do not like tons of...

    Computer Safety Help

    I used to use Firewalls and live or 'on-demand' Anti-virus programs but they always managed to muck something up and cause problems - no matter which ones I used. They were often memory hogs too. I found a few proven tools that I like now. IMO using these are The Best protection you can have...

    Large Address Aware

    Interesting app. I just read the first page. How would this app help me? This machine is a laptop. It's win 7 64 bit. I want to use this application to help with Gaming. I have 4 gigabytes of system ram in this thing and an ATI 4200 video card that has 336 megabytes of dedicated RAM but uses...

    64 bit Flash Now working in 64 bit Browsers !

    Ah.. that's the question.. seems people collectively have short memories. Back in the late 90's when all people had was 16 bit machines they thought they were doing o.k. Then they started coming out with 32 bit machines and no one wanted to use those outdated 16 bit applications anymore. Sure...
