Now i know the reason why they were so cheap in the first place. On the other hand, i own a Transcend 16Gb USB key since 2008 (yes th...

Re: Single-letter forum posts issue

New user lock : i agree with that. A few weeks or even a few months. This way, people have to think twice before hitting the [Submit] button. This is a good habit to read several times what you have just written before posting. Then, after the "Trial" period is over, users have gained enough credib...

Re: Intranet Search?

Very good sounds like ZoomSearch engine.
I've tested this and it's an efficient and reliable program.
I'm considering to buy a license sooner or later to remove the trial limitations (50 pages/documents max).

Re: [GAME] Free Orion

Didn't knew about Master of Magic . I'll try this next week. Have played Free Orion 50+ hours this week and it's a great game. I'm playing along this strategy guide lines and it's okay. The game AI is really aggressive, so for a starter, you might want to put it at a lower level than the default one...

Re: VPN experiences so far (seeking recommendations)

Got a "life" subscription deal with RA4W vpn for 9 bucks three years ago. I'm using the VPN servers configuration files provided with the "Open VPN" client. I'm not using this extensively, just from time to time but, so far, it's working okay. I just have to download the updated servers configuratio...

Re: Portable hardware, the legacy topic ;)

This one is running "RockBox" too and it sounds really great : xDuoo X3.
Coupled with a headphones amp, it's even better : Fiio Q1 mk2.
Got these three years ago, both never failed me (yet).
