After 18, yes 18, things from Malwarebytes tech support that didn't work, and about the same from a MBWs forum, also didn't work, over the course of two weeks, with both places blaming OTHER software, and having me uninstall that OTHER software, for the problem of MWM 3.1.2 user interface...

Anyone else other than myself find the timing of Facebook trying to foist their fake 'malicious software' scanner/malware on me, less than 6 hours after I removed CryptoPreventer and Microsoft Security Essentials as instructed by tech support at Malwarebytes just a wee bit more than a coincidence? Continue reading
In the ongoing saga that is Malwarebytes latest version not working right, I used their cleaner tool to un-install it yet again, rebooted yet again, and was greeted by "This Windows 7 installation isn't genuine" WTF?? 2 years after I built this beast, and installed a freshly purchased LEGIT copy?...

White Supremacists, the KKK, the Alt-Right, and Neo-Nazis have a long history of acts of violence. They also have zero honor. How could the police, who seem to taser, shoot, pepper spray anyone that looks cross-eyed at them, NOT be there to protect peaceful counter-protesters? Then you have Racist enablers/Apologists,...

1st off, absolutely EVERYTHING else works perfectly on my computers' current set up. Sure, there are occasional hardlocks (like when I'm processing a HUGE image in On1 and watching a DVD/BlueRay on the other monitor) but everything works. Which takes me to the topic of the subject. Malwarebytes: I had... Continue reading

When I get up in the morning, before I get out of bed, I get one of my knee compression bandages and slip it on my right knee. It makes getting around a bit easier. However, wearing it all day seemed to cause my knee to hurt worse at the... Continue reading

And when I get that better tech support, I thank him/her for all their help. Replacement start menu shell, been using it for years. My desktop user account was screwing up so I created a new one. Problem is I forgot how to input the license/serial number. I just could... Continue reading

There are some people that don't know what's going on with my knees (yes, plural) but with my right one being much much worse. I have arthritis in my knees, it's a family trait. But, when I was 18 I injured my right knee, and about 18months after that, I... Continue reading

Yesterday, I had a (too) close encounter with a Trump fan, replete with ethnic epithets and Trump sound bites. I recovered. Today, after lunch with my mother in law, my son and I got to the counter to pay, with Wing and his mom close behind. An elderly gent shoved... Continue reading

Dear Sony; you #%@%$#&%#$ Suck, did you know that? Yeah, yeah, I know you closed up your computer division a few years ago, but you did it on the sly, AFTER flooding the market with reasonably priced Sony Vaio laptops. You did this knowing you were closing up the computer... Continue reading

I just ran Belarc Advisor on my computer. I didn't realise just how many programs I have installed. Strange thing, though. Even though I have Adobe CS6 Master Collection installed from a legally purchased copy, it says "Trial"? Hmm, odd. Nevertheless, I am going to go through the list and... Continue reading

There is something boned with my user account on my computer, that causes problems like Malwarebytes user menu not wanting to show up (it's still running, though, I get the alerts). I was also having a problem with On1PhotoRaw crashing the computer. So, I decided to make a new user... Continue reading

Yesterday was the first time I had been out on photoshoot since Sydney trip. I managed it well enough, was rather tired and sore, but not overly so. Not until this morning. Creak, crack, wince, hobbled my way to the TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN ROOM. After about 10 mins... Continue reading

I got a text message from my bank, saying there was an odd charge to my credit card, and did I recognize it. I looked, then searched, and nope, no clue, so I texted back NO. Got a phone call from the bank, three step verification, so it was legit.... Continue reading

Don't get me wrong, I loved my Tamron 24-70 f/2.8, fast to focus, and the image quality was excellent, but I kept finding myself trying to zoom past the 70mm mark. It didn't quite have the reach. So, instead of ruining the lens by accidentally over torquing the zoom ring,... Continue reading

Attended the #PhotoLiveExpo2017 at Novatel, in Perth, yesterday. Bought a new lens at a discounted price. Wing had a bit of a snit about it until I told him I was selling my Tamron 24-70 to fund the purchase. Went to #CameraElectronic to pick up the new camera batteries we... Continue reading

First off, ow. The exam to see if the 2nd SynVisc injection is working hurts like hell. Pull, push, bend, flex. Check to see if there is side to side movement. Even with the swelling I had on Sunday (furniture seats are 'fashionably' low to the floor. Kind of feels... Continue reading

8 weeks ago, I purchased the full version of DFX Audio Enhancer. I really liked the plug-in I had gotten with DIVX years ago, and wanted to use its features with all my audio/video programs. Turn the clock to 8 weeks later, they announce they have a NEW AND IMPROVED... Continue reading

I stubbed my toe last week, but that isn't the problem. The problem was I couldn't find the toenail clipper and impatiently tried to use fingernail clipper. It didn't cut the nail, but it did twist it, causing a lifting of the toenail from the nail bed. I noticed (well,... Continue reading

You know, everyone goes on and on ad nauseum about Adobe Products. Why? It's not like they are the end all be all of image development/editing. 'Industry standard'? Adobe itself labeled themselves that, and it stuck. Here is a list of equal, if not better, programs to use. True, not... Continue reading

I have 8 years worth of emails, photos, correspondence from my dad. I never delete anything from family. I might have lost a few due to hard drive failures, and caught between back ups, but I have most of them. I have been going through them, and it's a sad/happy/sad... Continue reading

Actually, no funeral. He has been cremated already. No flowers, but if you wish to honor him, make a donation to a local animal shelter in his name. City of Live Oak: Shelter animals need good homes He is going to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, full military honors.... Continue reading

Richard E Tomac, aka Pop aka Dad, passed away Friday, July 7th, 2017. So, so, conflicted as to how I feel. Very sad that he is gone, but relieved that he is no longer suffering. Cancer really really sucks. :( Continue reading

I updated Samsung Magician from 4.5 to 5.1, software for my SSD. Ever since then, I keep get "WMI is Disabled. Enable Y/N". I went to the Samsung site, only to find they don't archive older versions, even though there was a link to version 4.9. All it did was... Continue reading
