Re: 10 Killer Mouse Tricks You’ve Never Tried

I often use 5 of those tips, and knew a few of the others even though I seldom use them. There were also a few, however, that I either didn't know or forgot. Thanks for the tips.

Re: Free VPN

WOW! Less than 24 hours without my internet connection at my home, and I was in severe withdrawals. Happy to be back in the saddle now, and realize it may be time to replace my Android 2.2 phone with something a bit faster and maybe a slightly bigger screen. What I have now is usually adequate for i...

Re: Free VPN

Saw this earlier, but wanted to give someone else a chance at it.

Rotating Images

Most graphics editors have tools to rotate images. Some may only offer fixed rotation angles such as 90 degrees, but most, like my favorites, IrfanView or Paint.NET , will allow you to enter in an exact rotation +/-, such as 352.13 or -13.75. You can even do it in LibreOffice or OpenOffice Draw, if ...

Terry Pratchett dies

Terry Pratchett, Popular Fantasy Novelist, Dies at 66 To his legion of fans, myself included, this is tragic news. And just under 2 weeks ago (February 27, 2015), we lost Leonard Nimoy.

Windows 10 Recycle Bin on the Taskbar

Windows 10 Technical Preview supposedly has an option to pin the Recycle Bin to the Start Menu and to the Taskbar. In the most recent release (Build 9926), however, Microsoft seems to have removed the Taskbar part of this option. 1. Right-click the Recycle Bin on the Desktop and select Pin to Start....
