I laid into one that kept up with I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS! only section of the 2nd amendment. Then he insulted me and my family's military service by saying 'probably the type to sign up for the paycheck'. I let him have it. Robert K**** Pookums, my... Continue reading

I tried installing TotalMediaCenter on my Windows 7 VM, XP VM and 8 VM. It installed ok on Win 8 vm, but would crash when I tried to load any sort of video. Installed on Win 7 VM, but like with Win 7 desktop, it would launch, then shut down... Continue reading

Another Windows update, and it again disabled TotalMediaTheater. And since ArcSoft is no longer supporting or updating it, there is no solution from that avenue. I have one option left to keep using is. Try installing it on one of my VMs. Yes, I have Cyberlink PowerDVD17 but it's bloated,... Continue reading

Saw Matt the Physio as scheduled. But before I went in, I marked on my shin and ankle where I was having pain. It's no where near as bad as it was after Christmas last year, but it's enough to slow me down and stop me from doing activities. He... Continue reading

Latest "monthly rollup" (KB4074598) prevented some tried and true programs from starting. As much as I would prefer to have the updates, I am tired of Microsoft updates disabling programs that I use. Yes, I know the programs aren't sold/updated/supported by their original company, but I use them, and don't... Continue reading

I did this after editing the images in Photoshop CS6 E.... Continue reading

And show the results as to WHY, there are always Mansplainers. With the upcoming Blue Supermoon Eclipse, I gave detailed instructions on how to use a freeware astronomy program called "Registax". It didn't take long for the usual Mansplainers to tell me THEIR way was better, or using a single... Continue reading

Sometimes, I just can't get the right leg comfortable enough to sleep well through the night. Was up at 4:43 am (checked my watch, so know the time is right). Let Keito and Loki into the back yard to 'dig holes in the sand'. Checked on Ziggy, as she and... Continue reading

I gave Matt the rundown of what I have been doing to alleviate the pain in my shin/ankle. Nothing seems to be working. Even starting up the rehab exercises didn't help. After some questions, then some pushes/pulls/twists/pokes/prods we did find out it's nothing wrong (aka, no damaged bone, or DVT).... Continue reading

The Tibialis Anterior pain isn't going away. I have done the stretches and other things Matt The Physio said to do, and it's not changing anything. After checking my blogs, and comparing when the pain started to when I was give the 'all clear' from having to do the rehab... Continue reading

When your browser works, all addons functioning properly... do NOT update the browser if you aren't having any issues. The "OH NOES! SECURITY PROBLEMS!" Bullshit, that is what some of the security addons are for. Having the latest version of Firefox disable what it deems is 'not compatible' is bullshit,... Continue reading

It just keeps going on and on. I got this bull$hit email from them. Hello Sandra, Thank you for contacting Adobe support. I am writing in reference to your case regarding your issue with Adobe application. Please accept our sincere apology for all the inconvenience. We request you to provide... Continue reading

I was surfing on a news website, and I noticed the bookmarks on the browser bar disappearing one by one. What the heck? Checked my back up browser, and saw the same thing happening there! Again, what the heck? It seems that X-Marks had a malfunction. Luckily, I am a... Continue reading

You knew your "Meltdown Patch" was buggy, for Windows v7, 8, 10, but you released it. Not only that, you send out NOTHING to tell people to remove this patch! I used two DVD/Blu-Ray play back programs (there are always discs that won't play in one program, but will in... Continue reading

Adobe: Contact Amazon Amazon: Contact Seller Seller: Contact Adobe. What this boils down to is if you have purchased your older Adobe product from a reseller, and not as a direct download, your product no longer exists and you screwed if you need help with it. Even when you have... Continue reading

I found one of my invoices for an Adobe product, and sent it to them, as proof, that "See, yes, I did buy it!" I told them, over and over, that I didn't buy it as a digital download, but as a Boxed Version. Their response: We have gone through... Continue reading

I managed to track down the seller I bought Adobe CS6 Master Collection from. I am optimistically (stupidly?) hopeful that his sales records go back that far. I found the invoice for Photoshop Elements 10 and sent that along. I will have to go through some laptops and back up... Continue reading

And have had some sleep, I am revisiting my Adobe complaint. Over the past 10+ years, I have purchased "Boxed" aka store bought versions of Adobe products. CS3 E, CS5 E, CS6 Master Collection, Photoshop Elements (9, 10, 11). I dutifully made an Adobe account, registered each and every purchase... Continue reading

Regarding how CS5 kicked up "Trial has expired" message after 5 years of using it. This just gets even more bizarre than my CS3 serial suddenly not a valid license number! It seems all my adobe products that weren't purchased as downloaded programs from the Adobe site have been wiped... Continue reading

Good news, the area of sharp pain on the shin is more diffused, and much less 'jamming ice pick' feeling. A bit of acupuncture to help it settle a bit more. I told Matt how it was worse first thing in the morning, but after a few minutes of limping... Continue reading

Forgot about my Cyberfox custom search engines, and the scrapbooked webpages. I had to do a bit of searching to find where they were stored so I could import/copy them into FireFox. It took longer to type this out, than it did to locate the files/folders and get them copied... Continue reading

For the umpteenth time, I am switching browsers again. I had been using Cyberfox for about 2 years. I started using it when Firefox started having glitches (it would 'forget' addons, frequent crashes), but lately, it's been slow to load pages. Even if loading it with all addons disabled it...

All the HDDs formerly known as single unit external HDDs are now in the multi bay enclosure are running much cooler than they did as stand alones. Also, the HDDs in the computer are also running cooler. Less power draw, maybe? Continue reading

I emailed Corel support for a problem I'm having with WinDVD Pro 12. Here's the correspondence. My support request. When I try to play any disk folder/DVD folder with WinDVDPro 12, it's choppy and intermittent. I have already checked for updates, have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have moved the disk...

The Tibialis Anterior, when in motion, feels as if someone is jabbing an icepick into it. Had some more acupuncture and gentle massage. The physio put black strapping tape on to give the affected area some stability. I was so thrilled that all I was taking was anti-inflammatories, and was... Continue reading
