OT Your own personal weather radar (USA) by John Doe
Worth mentioning again IMO. WeatherScope is free to PC users (probably still $10 for smart phones). It is ultra configurable. Naturally I use a black background with mostly white lines (for streets, city and state boundaries, etc). The rain shows up as various colors from green to red. If you...

OT The death of the home stereo system by Metspitzer
(CNN) -- For many years, it was a rite of fall. You moved into your dorm room or new apartment. You started unpacking the car. And the first thing you set up in your new place was the stereo system: receiver, turntable or CD player, tape deck and speakers. The wires could get tangled, and...

Easus Diskcopy by Laurence[_3_]
i just used Easus Diskcopy to copy from a 500Mb drive to a 2tb drive with the hope of resizing the partitions afterwards to get more space. But on completion no partitioning tool will give me any more space because BIOS only recognizes the new drive as 500Mb - an exact image of the old one. what...

OT Walmart in bed with Amazon by John Doe
I thought shopping at Amazon meant saving money and not giving business to Walmart, but started noticing too many of the "site to store" prices were precisely the same (to the penny) as they are on Amazon. Apparently stuff ships from Amazon's warehouse to Walmart stores. Probably not a good...

How is RAM Different with 64bit OS ? by goldtech[_2_]
Hi, I've never used a 64bit OS. I have 32bit OS and 3GB of RAM. It's enough RAM for most anything I've tried. I'm not even sure 32bit XP can effectively use over 2GB. But if I switch to 64bit Win7 how does that change things? Is it that it's faster but hogs more RAM or will 3GB be enough for...

Why doesn't Explorer navigation pane arrow keystroke show contents? by John Doe
Is there some reason that Explorer navigation pane arrow keystrokes no longer cause the folder contents to show in the main window? Does it bother everybody except Microsoft management?

Had three WD drives die in the past year and finally noticed that two of them were still under the factory warranty, so now what are they going to send me? New drives? Refurbished drives? I've never had a HD die under warranty before.
