Re: Looking for a emailing software.

Can i suggest to add "jbMail" to the database ?
The latest beta version is free and fully portable.
And you can update SSL support to the latest version just by copying required DLL libraries to the program's folder.

Re: Looking for a emailing software.

I'm using "PostBox" on my desktop computer (Windows 10). I'm still using "Barca" on my laptop (Windows 7) and "jbMail" on my netbook (Windows XP).

CLI tools : BLAT.

"PostBox" isn't portable.
"Pocomail/Barca" and "jbMail" are portable.

Re: Micro SD card - says it needs to be formatted - any way to recover data?

SD cards are made just for that. To fail and be replaced sooner than later.
Compact Flash cards are good for long term storage (10 to 20 years) but are soooo sloooowww...

Re: Unable to Update Windows 10

This is the reason why i take the following steps after a fresh install : 1. Quickly run a bunch of portable optmization tools : Bleachbit, Vit Registry Optimizer and a quick defrag after removing Hibernation and Paging files (I don't need these). 2. Install either Macrium Reflect or RollBack RX (Fr...

Re: GPD Pocket (7" laptop)

18650 batteries, absolutely. You can find these everywhere. And they're "hot-swappable", meaning that as long as there is one battery powering the device, you can remove the other battery to replace it by a fully charged one. Here is an article about this portable terminal. Here is another one abou...

Re: GPD Pocket (7" laptop)

GPD produced a complete line of business and gaming micro PC over the last 3 years. I was very inclined to get one of these models but after browsing a boatload of reviews, one complaint clearly stuck out : batteries ! Main concern is battery quality seems to be on the low side. And it seems difficu...

Re: xplorer2 Lite

Have registered the "normal" and "pro ultimate" versions a few years ago. Dropped both when a "WD Passport" 500Gb external USB HDD died while i was moving huge files around on same partition. Now, i can't blame xplorer2 with certainty. It may have been a defective unit from Western Digital. Tried ve...

Re: What hardware are you using?

That's a nice thing to have in the pocket. Still, these devices seems to have limited power input (micro USB) and the outcome is the CPU and GPU can't run at full speed. They're good to browse the web, watch videos, check mail, office work and light image edition. Beyond that, better to have a Raspb...

Re: is there desktop portable chess game that let me play online?

Yes, as far as i know, it's stealth. I've just read your first post again, and no, "Arena Chess" is definitely not playable online. Sorry. It's more oriented toward players looking to improve their skills and analysing games. If online play is what you're looking for, running a search like this will...
