Coolest amphibious boat ever

Iguana Yachts has the coolest amphibious boat/vehicle you have probably ever seen! It is a really nice boat, but also has hydraulically retractable treads that fold up when it is a boat, and down to go almost anywhere on land. You have to see this. https://www.iguana-yachts.com/wp-content/uploads/2...

Re: Google removes Plugin controls from Chrome

I am still looking into replacing Chrome with Chromium, but while digging, I found "Advanced Chrome" , a Google Chrome/Chromium Fork for Windows XP to 10. I had never heard of this, and decided to try it out... especially since it doesn't even require installation. It is NOT portable, howe...

Re: Firefox Tips & Tricks

I use Pale Moon, basically a Firefox fork, and decided to test a few of the about:config tweaks. Specifically #4 Multiprocess Firefox, and #7 Speed Up Firefox. For #4, I did not have a browser.tabs.remote.autostart setting, but there was one for browser.tabs.remote (set to false). I left that one al...

Paint 3D

According to PC World , one of the Windows 10 Creators Update's best new features is Paint 3D, sort of a Windows Paint on steroids. Paint 3D is loaded with tools and filters that make 3D image manipulation easy, and it can even help you convert 2D images into 3D objects. Microsoft’s updated app also...

Re: Museum of Failure

HEY! Why was the Q-Cat in there? I liked 'em, still have several, and occasionally use one to enter DVDs in my DVD Profiler database. Scan the code and done ... a lot easier than a bunch of typing. Of course you can do pretty much the same thing now with bar-code scanners for your phone, or other An...

Re: Thinking of Getting a VPN?

Interesting article, but it does not even begin to scratch the surface of the subject. As stated, many factors should be considered before adopting a VPN, and what is best for one person may not be for another, so do your research, based on REPUTABLE sites, or trusted advisers -- like our vice-prez....
