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...

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

Yes, "Arena Chess" is portable. You can put it on a USB key and run it almost anywhere (assuming the hardware is compatible and the OS is windows). For "Chessmaster 10th Edition", i can't remember where i grabbed the ISO, but it's still there on a blog somewhere. I don't know if multiplayer game wor...

Yes, there is "Arena Chess" . http://www.playwitharena.de/pic/Screenshot4kl.jpg And " WinBoard ". http://hgm.nubati.net/winboardF.jpg Or you can try " LiChess ", playing directly inside your web browser... I regularly play a few others that are not portable : "Perfect Chess" from GUNNAR GAMES (relea...

Re: USB Flash drive lifespan + portable apps

There's an (somewhat old) article on this page that explains the "Best Reliable Long-term Data Storage Media" and, curiously, it seems that Compact Flash cards are reliable with a very long lifespan. The other solution appears to be Verbatim Gold Archival DVD-R. USB sticks are good to carry data bet...

Re: What hardware are you using?

All good for now. Used it the past two months to backup my ZG5 netbook with "Macrium Reflect".
Already restored the system twice after messing up with windows XP registry.
Fast backups and restores.
I'm happy.

Thanks, great post.
I wish there exists a similar solution to play portable "Baldur's Gates".

Re: What hardware are you using?

Grabbed this for 10 bucks + mSATA 512 Gb Kingston SSD for 60$.

Connects like any USB key via short cable on the computer but is a lot faster.
Actual size is twice as large, more or less the same height, one third longer.

Go to the "Advanced" tab. Push the "Environment Variables" button. 3. In the "System Variables" listbox, search for the "Co...
