  1. I've been using the trial version of Font Creator to turn pics into fonts.Works great BUT I would like to find a free version. Not that I mind paying but its a little high for no more than I would be using it. I've googled for a freeware version of a font maker/creator til my eyes hurt with no luck.Anyone have any ideas? Never mind, the problem is solved.
  2. thanks! Worked like a charm.As usual,help was fast in coming here.The registered owner thing I will save to another day.But I will get around to it eventually.
  3. Ok So I found an old computer at a yardsale for $10.Not fast (600mhz) but I just hooked it up to my network and will do for a file server.Anyhow,the computer name is LESA and I'm not LESA in fact not even close. Is there a way to change the computer name,other than a registry hack? OS is XP Pro. Thanks in advance for any help. John (not Lesa)
  4. Is the link supposed to support Firefox as faster? From the article: "So overall, Opera seems to be the fastest browser for windows."
  5. There are no big problems with Opera. Anyone who says its hard to use is either too lazy to stick with it until they get used to it, or too lazy to read the tutorials. As a LONG TIME Opera user, all I can say is,its fast,its lean,and its clean. Firefox(ouch) lasted about a week on my PC. Oh,and 'Mouse", Opera has been ad-free for awhile now. If you are looking for a serious,secure browser,Opera is what you want. If you believe all the Keven/Leo Firefox smooching propaganda, then stay with FF.
  6. missing the true point here....what is next? Will they be scanning our hard drives to see what else we might have? Its about privacy.Open the door,let them in and you have no privacy. If M$ can find a way to mess this up,they will.Not known for doing things right the first time. I see a 'patch' for the update and then a patch for the patch somewhere down the line. For a company that depends almost entirely on its software for revenue,they seem to be bending over backwards to drive people to open source.
  7. no,I"ve tried all that,which is weird.I checked the setting for my other computers and they are the same as this one . I do have Total recorder so its not URGENT but I hate to have something that I can't get working.,
  8. I had to install audacity onot a new computer today. Under the recording source,the only options I have are "Line In' and "Microphone". No mono mix,no stereo mix,etc. I've looked everywhere in the preferences,and can't figure this one out. I've installed Audacity on computers many times and never had this problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.
  9. I could be wrong but I think I read somewhere that the drive uses a different laser for CD than for DVD because the two have data burnt at different depths. The laser,of course,has to focus at that depth. Buy a new drive they are dirt cheap now.
  10. sell your old ram on ebay.It will go fast.
  11. Version 9 (currently out in Beta) has built-in adblocking ,and its as easy to use as right clicking. I'm in my second week of trying it out...so far I love it.
  12. Right on the money. I have 4 DVD players...2 will play VCD and 2 won't. Try it and see.... IF the DVD player will play picture CD's chances are it will play VCD's.
  13. Opera, for over 4 years. DL 9.0 this morning and have been playing with it all day.So far,LOVE IT! The adblock feature is great,and SO easy to use.
  14. If you have a pet and want to take it with you, www.letsgopets.com is a great resource. La Quinta Inns take pets as a matter of policy. Just thought I'd throw that in for you pet lovers.
