  1. Review - BgInfo

    4.22 (May 17, 2017)

    have been using this app for over 10 years. Have it integrated with a BartPE diagnostic disk and it does exactly what it says.... it displays information re: the computer you're working on and displays it directly on the desktop overlaying whatever wall paper you have up. For every day use... not so useful. For diagnostic/repair work, very handy.

    Need a version for Mac

  2. Review - BurnAware Free

    10.1 (Mar 17, 2017)

    Decent and good for med level users. (Advanced users should get imgburn)
    For those concerned about unwanted payloads, go to their home page (click on any of the Burnaware links) and then scroll down to bottom of page. The last sentence of the paragraph contains a link to "no optional offers" version.

    Also you can download free version without optional offers.

  3. Review - DoNotSpy10 (Dec 21, 2016)

    First, it's not the first. O&O Shutup does everything that this does and does it well. I'll give this one a 4 for the effort.

  4. Review - Miranda IM (64-bit) (Oct 7, 2016)

    Some features that Miranda says it supports doesn't work, and guess what... yep, no bonjour support. Not only that, but the uninstall left me having to run ccleaner to wipe away the nightmare left behind.

    This thing used to be the go to program for IM across multiple platforms, but they've turned a deaf ear to the users, and a blind eye to today's needs.

  5. Review - Miranda IM (64-bit) (Jul 21, 2016)

    this time the update is an NSIS bug fix.
    Still no added support for bonjour.

    the devs don't listen. shame. this app had strong potential.

  6. Comment - Julius Baer drops suit against Wikileaks (Mar 6, 2008 - 12:50 PM)

    The only reason for a person, persons, company or companies to have a problem with a whistleblower is that they were involved in wrong doing to begin with. With that in mind, the public by and large have the right to know. Don't put your hand in the cookie jar, and you will never get caught with it there.

  7. Comment - Three Cellular Carriers Fined Over 911 (Sep 1, 2007 - 6:03 PM)

    Um, you're not getting those phones for free, no matter what they tell you. You are in a contract that costs way more than you should have to pay for using phone service. Do you think you're really paying a fair price and getting what you're paying for? Keep telling yourself that. You WAY MORE than pay for those phones throughout the course of your contract. Try and cancel a contract and guess what? You get to pay a nice hefty cancellation fee. What do you think that fee is mostly for? You guessed pay for that "free phone" you thought you got.

    Tracking people in 911 calls is not done by GPS.. it's done by cellular triangulation, and some other high technobabble.

  8. Comment - Google Opens Gmail Signups Further (Feb 8, 2007 - 2:54 PM)

    Hotmail has the wonderful feature of setting up a white list that blocks out all emails from anyone except those that you specifically identify. Gmail doesn't have this. While the spam filter works fairly well, it still sickens me that the box fills up with close to 1500 spams over the course of 2 - 3 days. It wouldn't be a probolem with a configurable white list, which I've submitted requests for, but those requests seem to have fallen on "deaf ears, blind eyes"

  9. Comment - Microsoft Rushes to Fix Critical XP Flaw (Jul 18, 2005 - 8:32 PM)

    If MS was informed in May, how can they say they're "rushing" to fix this? Shouldn't the patch have been made available at the very next set of updates? Oh yeah sure... 'they've been working on it'. Uh huh.

  10. Comment - Citigroup Loses Data on 3.9 Million (Jun 7, 2005 - 11:07 AM)

    that's why they call it a 'class action suit' and yes, UPS deserves to be made to pay for their incompetence. Over the past 5-10 years they've been damaging and losing packages at an alarming rate, and they've been delivering packages late by sometimes as much as a day or two. WHat many customers don't realize is that they are entitled to refunds for these late or lost packages. UPS and other shippers rely on this ignorance to keep the 4 billion or so annual dollars a secret so they will not have to pay it back.
