7+ months total knee replacement post op, and 2 months after the car accident where my knees impacted on the dashboard. The swelling is just about gone, and pivoting or walking sideways, the left knee doesn't make me come to a screeching halt, gasping in pain. I would say I'm... Continue reading

With photos after installing/copying On1 to CS5. After you’ve installed CC, and On1PhotoRaw, copy the plugins to CS5 Plugin directory/folder. Launch On1PhotoRaw. It will start in the BROWSE module. Select the image you want edit/develop. When you’re finished with your edits, click on EXPORT on the bottom right Export as... Continue reading

Easier way to use On1PhotoRaw 2018 with Photoshop CS5. Yes, still install trial version of CC, but don't subscribe , and leave it on your system, as the TOS says nothing about removing it if you aren't going to use it. (I know, I read the entire boring thing) Install... Continue reading

I have been getting an odd message when I send certain emails with Forte Agent. And I scoured the internet for about a week, looking for a solution. Didn't find one, so did what any person would have done. I submitted a support request. To say I was shocked at... Continue reading

The 500gb HDD has arrived, and I have my windows 10 ready to install on it. Just have to find the time to do it. I get irked when people try to brow beat me into just upgrading the OS on my Windows 7 desktop. Everything works. Why the hell... Continue reading

I know quite a few people who still use CS5, don't want to rent CC, and didn't get CS6 because they didn't need it, and they feel left out because too many software makers aren't including it in their new plugins and tools. Because I actually still have CS5 (and... Continue reading

With the help of Alan, the cats' food and water dishes have been scrubbed and refilled. Their sandboxes cleaned and refilled. I went outside, took down, scrubbed and refilled the hummingbird feeders. I had a chorus of Wattlebirds, and at least two varieties of honey-eaters while I worked. When I... Continue reading

Simplest answer.. yes and no. My Windows 7 box works great. As long as I don't install those "Quality Rollups". I do keep on top malicious software/malware definitions, but I'm fed up with Microsoft disabling what they deem is outdated software. I also have 'legacy' hardware that Windows 10 will...

It's no secret that I have been recovering from a total knee replacement (chromium cobalt, no less!) had a few setbacks during rehab (my fault for overdoing it) and one helluva set back when an L Plater t-boned us on the passenger side of the car (three guesses which side... Continue reading

I have been ordering from one certain online store on a regular basis for several years. And typically, within two business days after I've submitted and paid for said order, they would send out "FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $100". Seeing as every order I have submitted has been over...

I got an email from the makers of XMarks. It was the best way to backup and sync bookmarks. They will be discontinuing their service on the 1st of May. I paid for this service and now they're pulling up stakes and will just be doing LastPass. But I already... Continue reading

I have reinstalled CryptoPrevent. Between that, and MalwareBytes, I probably have better security on my system than if I installed those program disabling Windows 7 Security/Maintenance Rollups. Especially when I have read what those rollups are 'fixing', have nothing to do with my computer. The only annoyance I will have,... Continue reading

I stupidly updated Firefox so I could update one of my much used addons (blurb on page said it wouldn't work with anything older than v56.) I made a backup archive of my version of firefox, downloaded and installed the new version. Not only was the new version of Firefox... Continue reading

There was a mass on my left shoulder. It got all inflamed, and scheduled to have it removed. The surgery for that went ok, but it left a deep deep hole in my back. It took over 9 months for it to fill and heal. About a month after it... Continue reading

I read up on what the Windows 7 Security Rollup entailed, and everything it 'fixed' or patched had nothing to do with my computer. So, I uninstalled that Rollup that disable ArcSoft TotalMediaPlayer. I will keep using it until there is another viable alternative. Security? I have security software that... Continue reading

This is for CS5 and CS6 users who want to use Bridge in their workflow, but want to launch On1PhotoRaw* as their default Camera Raw editor. (Was asked, so I'm providing the work around) If you follow these steps, which sound a bit complicated, but aren't, this will work for... Continue reading

Good news first: Although I had a hypertrophic scar, and over did it a few times during the past few months, setting me back, the TKR is great. I have 126 to 130 bed depending on the day. Bad News: Dr "Just call me Ian" is almost 100% certain I... Continue reading

Now that even Adobe Lightroom has gone to subscription only, even more people are looking for alternatives for RAW processing and photo editing. Skylum Luminar - The latest program I tried. I downloaded and installed the 14 day, fully functional, trial version. 4 days into using it, I was sold!... Continue reading

I joined a "Total Knee Replacement" group on Facebook. Why? Because there are certain well meaning people that are clueless. Or at least I hope they're well meaning but clueless. I had one person tell me that 4 weeks after a total knee replacement,an uncle (or someone) was back to... Continue reading

I had posted that I had been looking for an alternative to ArcSoft TotalMedia Theater because of Windows Rollup screwed the pooch. Enter Aurora Blu-Ray Player Now, Aurora claims to be "Try before buy", but you really can't tell if blu-ray playback is good as their HUGE frigging watermark covers... Continue reading

Turns out I might have yet another reason to remove the Windows 7 Rollup. %#&$%# Cinavia encryption. The only DVD/BluRay player on my computer that didn't have an issue with it was ArcSoft Total Media Theater. Leawo, DVDFab Player, PowerDVD 17, WinDVDPro 12, even when using AnyDVD or DVDFabPasskey, playback... Continue reading

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
