Re: Inside Any Schumer

I was wondering who found Amy funny :-)

Re: flv player other than Realplayer

I have used VLC for years on windows and Linux and it has never exhibited that behaviour (remembering where one left off). Just checked two minutes ago and it starts over each time I open a video.

But that's the value of this board; I now [more]

Re: flv player other than Realplayer

VLC is one of the first programs I install on any new system.

SM Player is the second. It plays files that even VLC has problems with (maybe once every twenty times I use VLC it can't play something or it locks up). Plus for those long [more]

Re: Moving on from XP.

Consider a refurbished W7 machine. There are literally millions of these machines coming off corporate lease. You can get them from reputable companies with a fresh W7 install.

I just bought a HP machine with 8 gig memory, one Tbyte drive, [more]

Re: Good DVD ripping software - free or otherwis

I have had little trouble with that format on computers, but the more universal one is mp4 as more stand alone players support that format (even Apple I think).

Re: Good DVD ripping software - free or otherwis

I second this recommendation. It is so useful that I bought a license for the features I wanted. I have never had a failure. The program has various modules so you can just buy what you want (there are also versions where you can buy everything with [more]

Re: Debug?

I routinely get such errors when logging into hotel WiFi access points. I usually have to click 'stop' about a half dozen times before the script ends and then I can log on. I'll try your suggestion to see if I can eliminate this annoyance. I travel [more]

What we are watching now:
Murdock Mysteries (two versions) there's 9 seasons of this; not sure how many Netflix has
Wallander (two versions, Swedish and English) (good shows, get the English as the subtitles will wear you out)

Re: Superbowl's Greatest Halftime Shows

I don't follow current music either, but Bruno Mars seems to have it (whatever it is). Coldplay -- couldn't hear a lyric so can't say. Seemed to have the on stage before 'chops'.

Re: Quicken 2016 Won't Add DOW

It was simple as it turned out. After trying numerous ways to add the security including directly into the Security Listing. I noted the check mark box for 'Show All Hidden Securities'.

Quicken 2016 Won't Add DOW

I go through the 'enter a new security' multi-step process. Quicken looks up DOW on the internet, comes back with the correct identifying information as always when entering a new holding.

Re: The Blacklist 012816

Well since there's only one episode left this season ...

They should have ended the season two episodes ago with Red sitting in conference with the lead bad lady discussing how hard they had all worked to get to this point...... That was a [more]
