Re: Linux distro for a novice

From what I gathered from the site and videos, Levinux is a server, not an OS.

Re: Linux distro for a novice

I've been testing Manjaro on a separate partition.

Not bad, but I'd still miss certain Windows apps way too much.

Re: Portable Python [discontinued]

I use WinPython Zero and it works for my needs. Good if you don't mind using the command line.

Re: Core Mini SFTP server

Had a chance to test this as I needed to transfer some files between computers on a local network and didn't want to use a USB drive. It really is barebones! The interface only shows connected IPs, but doesn't show what type of current transfers are occurring. The only way to tell if any transfers a...

Re: Core Mini SFTP server

This looks like a nice and very simple-to-use SFTP server. Thanks for suggesting, webfork!

I might use yAP to clear the reg entry when I find the need to use this app down the line.
Awhile back, I used Serva as a FTP server and I hated it.

Re: Mp3splt

I didn't want to resort to the command-line for this because I wanted to be able to pinpoint the portions I wanted to cut with a GUI.

If I used the command-line technique I'd have to write down the split points in a text file first.

Merging with the earlier thread.

Does it cut audio files as well?
Yes, it cuts audio as well, which was the main reason I wanted to try this out.

Re: Otter Browser

If the main reason for ditching a browser is because of the icon set, then that's not a valid reason at all.

SeaMonkey and K-Meleon looks like ass by default, but can be styled to look better.

Re: Redshift Tray

Always nice to have alternatives, but I'm sticking with SunsetScreen for now.

Has a GUI (not the prettiest), but uses .NET. Memory usage is 5.3MB on my Windows 10 com.

Re: Mp3splt

So I need to be able to split or cut OGG files losslessly and apparently, this is one of only a few programs that can do so. However, I have no idea how to use it. I can't even preview the audio because it either relies on GStreamer or Snackamp. Has anyone ever used this program before? If so, anyon...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice (adware)

According to the FreeOffice website, it can now write .docx, .xlsx and .pptx for free now. With FreeOffice 2018 you can not only open, but also save documents in the Microsoft file formats DOCX, XLSX and PPTX. Share files directly with Microsoft Office users, without having to export them first! Thi...

Re: Meltdown & Spectre: major chip vulnerabilities alert

I already have the QualityCompat regkey set. I know I can manually download the update, but I've also read that the update is buggy. I already have the updates from February. Did some further research and it looks like I'm not the only one that is having problems obtaining the March update through W...

Re: Meltdown & Spectre: major chip vulnerabilities alert

Thanks for the note, SYSTEM.

Just tested one of my systems that still runs Windows 7 and it appears Microsoft hasn't released the security update for March yet. It should hopefully be released in the next day or so.
