Whoever put together the uninstaller for this needs his head banging against a wall for an hour or so.
Thought I`d give this a try. Seemed ok at first. But I was in Facebook and clicking on some posted thumbnail photos and they weren't expanding to their full size. Strange. So I tried it in Firefox and it worked fine.
Now... Waterfox installs in its own folder and is separate. It loads in your bookmarks and cookies but what it doesn't tell you is that it uses the ones from Firefox and doesn't make its own copy of the Firefox ones.
So because of this Facebook issue I decided Waterfox has issues and went to uninstall it. It then asked me if I wanted also to remove WATERFOX's bookmarks and cookies. That lead me to believe it did make a duplicate set of the ones from Firefox. You know so it could function independantly. That would be a better scenario for future reference !
As it said they were the bookmarks and cookies from Waterfox and made no mention or gave no warning that it would affect Firefoxs stuff, I went ahead.
Sure enought when I went back in to good old Firefox I had a clean profile. All gone.
I did back up my bookmarks before installing Waterfox so no biggie there. It's just putting in all the add-ons now and havin NoScript re-learn everything again.
Put a damn warning on that it will be deleting FIREFOX's bookmarks not WATERFOX's. People do run them both in parallel you know.

Have tried and got a few video convertors and this one is one of the good ones. It's easy to use, intuitive, and does the job very well. It's free too so what's not to like ?

Great update. Really tidy new look and more room too. Best browser just got better.
Get this and the NoScript and ReadItLater addons and you have a nice setup.

gawd21: You don't know what you're talking about. It does install on Win7-64bit because I'm running it right here.
I've used this software for years.
So it can only do what the Windows Search does eh ? Ok ask your Windows Search to locate something you catalogued on a CD/DVD/External HDD 3 years ago. It can't !
This is for locating files that are on media that are stored away, not what is currently on your computer. jeez.
If you want to compare a program to the windows search the do that with Locate32. Even then Locate32 is far better because the results are instant, unlike windows search which has to scan every time.
I've been using WhereIsIt for many years now and its just invaluable.
If I want to find a file on an external HDD or DVD that might is stored away somewhere it tells me where it is and saves me the hassle of going through all my stuff which would be frustrating and take ages.

Wow, so this is what happened to Almer Backup ! Comodo bought it, tidied it up and re-released it for free.
Well as Ive been using and unstable Almer Backup for years now, Im going to try this and see if it has been stabilised.

I still don't understand why they have a problem with people who WATCH illegal videos. They're there aren't they ? If you come across one, what are you supposed to do ? hit the 'back' button ?
And why are they concerned with people watching football highlights ? Theyre HIGHLIGHTS! It happened in the past, its history now. Who cares ?
Nabbing people for seeing illegal videos on a public video website is like jailing someone was seeing a murder in a street.

Looks like Google didnt manage to offer the judge as much money as Viacom did.
I dunno if its a case of full privacy or nothing.
I think in extreme cases of say criminal activity (child porn etc), computer data should be handed over to law enforcement. BUT... that should be something you would expect companies to do automatically when asked, and not be coaxed or taken to court in order to do so.
So I believe there are circumstances where it is necessary to breach a persons privacy. This is certainly not one of them.
This is just yet another example to prove that you have no rights at all. To quote the late, great George Carlin "Rights are not rights if someone can take them away just like that. Temporary privileges is all they are folks"

boe, yeah sorry man :)
We've just put in a new 2003 R2 and for a flashing moment I did wonder if to wait for 2008 Server.
But nah, I'm sure we made the right move in not doing so. Although I am interested in delving into virtualisation on 2008, its way to early to upgrade. Next year maybe.
But we have beta tested it and I did like what I saw of it.

"The problem lies in many of the old-guard management still around that are incredibly resistant to change."
Yep. This doesn't happen where I work, but I have seen this in other companies. People don't want to spend on IT and yet want everything smooth, quick and working at the same time.
Your 3 years philosophy is not a bad one. Definately wouldn't want to have it more than that. We do have a couple of computers over that age but they are kept because they are used for really minimal tasks and are not in constant use.

You're not far from wrong there as I had just woken up :)
