Well, the Jun 5 is there today. Besides that everything is 100% working and correct.
Hey... at least none of my programs ever crash on me.
Are there any programs I can use to convert GeoTIFF's to other image formats (.png, .jpg, etc).
Preferably with a GUI and/or point-and-click interface.
Command line programs and crap that requires being built/compiled before use will be shot on sight.
I just plugged in a second monitor, works like a charm. However I am wondering if there is any way to make Monitor 2 work while Monitor 1 is full-screened? I'm afraid it doesn't allow me to switch without minimizing the full-screened application.
Possibly, depends on what browser you use, they have differing hardware acceleration support for flash/webm/h.264.
Not really, it's an OS limitation.
Damn. That removes the entire point of me hooking this second monitor up.
It does partly depend on the type of fullscreen thing -
Fullscreen videos, you should be able to use the other monitor no problems.
Fullscreen games where your mouse controls the camera, you wouldn't want the cursor tracking offscreen when it gets to the edge anyway.
Is it games with an in-game cursor you're playing?
Hi, I just posted a new thread with a VBA question, but maybe it fits better in this thread:
Binding of Isaac, Age of Empires 2, games like that.
As you said, it works fine with full-screen videos.
Okay so Im finally upgrading from Firefox 3 to ... whatever version it is now. Some of my old addons are incompatible so Im using a portable version to find replacements for those addons. So, when I get that figured out, how do i get the profile out of the Firefox Portable and replace the one i got so i can upgrade.
This doesnt make any sense does it?
Edit: Okay one of my addons is unavailable. I have it on the current profile though so Ill try and see if its compatible ... so how do you export an addon?
Another edit: Ok so I got the addon I used FEBE to export all my addons then got the one I wanted as an XPI. I think Im doing good. But i should go to bed now.
Okay. I figured out how to transfer the profile over. So Ive finally gotten around to upgrading. Im probably the last person to do that. Heh.
For addons: With some tweaking it is possible to get some older ones working. Also if you do a search sometimes other people patch the addons to make it work and then post those. Theres only a few I had to find complete replacements for. I also had to find another one to fix a behavior I didnt like. Also another theme because the default one was crummy.
With a bit digging around on the addon page, you might be able to find a beta version of the addon that isn't yet supported by the newest version. Those wont show up in automatic updates, so you have to search around
Well the addon wasnt updated in years so I didnt expect there to be a beta.
Heres the theme Im using, by the way. Its nice and clean and colorful.
The default theme was too small buttons and too grey.
Is Microsoft Security Essentials good enough for anti-virus or should I be using something else?
A lot of people think that it is quite good.
Peculiar problem happening with my desktop: if I turn the computer on before the monitor, it loads quickly as you would expect it to and without problems. But if I turn the computer on after turning on the monitor first, the computer will hang for upwards 10 minutes in the loading screen before starting, and sometimes won't start at all (will come back with the "Windows failed to start, repair?" screen). What the heck would cause something like this? I don't even know where to begin troubleshooting this. The monitor doubles as my TV and works just fine otherwise.
What kind of monitor is it? It would seem that it works as more than just a monitor.
Avast! and Malwarebytes' Antimalware are a good addition (and they're free),
I think it was mentioned somewhere that the combination of those three make the best protectionm but am not sure.
