RE: Good Sam trip planner to Garmin 770

More research and testing. :M I use Mapsource GDB format to update my Garmin(s). Mapsource is no more supported, so it needs extra help from Google Maps.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

What's driving much of the eligible hardware requirements is to harden security. Cyber-criminals and hackers are exploiting Bios and CPU vulnerabilities that can allow injection and running malicious code, which no software based security can protect against. Thus requiring newer CPU and Bios chip systems. They touted the same thing about UEFI more than a decade ago. They purposely rendered millions of Linux Computers useless, and Ubuntu had to scramble for solution (Ubuntu paid $M for ONE licence, then unlock it for all people who install Ubuntu). By the way UEFI or no, computers still get hacked left and right.

RE: Temptation to Buy a Chromebook

... your OS will be far less secure than using Win95 on the wobbly web.. I don't know where this idea come from, unless you enable Developer Mode. As for Cloud Storage, I still have more 13G unused from the 15G that Google give me... I use a 1T External Hard drive.

RE: Temptation to Buy a Chromebook

My new HP laptop with a 512 gig SSD boots up in less than 30 seconds and shuts down in 5. The questions are 1) For how long can your HP keep up that speed ? 2) How much do you save if you buy a CB equivalent ? My nephew just took a Windows Laptop off the hand off his colleague for 50$ (it is full of malwares), my nephew wiped the disk clean then replaced with Linux - it run great again. The greatest feature of a CB, I think, is the Power Wash - if you suspect something going wrong, just activate that, your CB is working great again ! New CB have more features (more apps, Crostini ...) that can make them much more versatile and useful than some people might think. I have an 8 year old CB that cost me 250$C, and it is still going strong. It can do practically everything I ever need: VPN, Email, Light WP, Music, Photos (offline storage), News, Chat, G Meet (video talk with my kids & grand kid) ...

RE: How to bypass Windows 11 limits and install on old PC

Windows updates might mess up your dual booting. I'd rather use VMs.

RE: Best virus, spyware protection.

Even better is a Chromebook... A+ I also use a PC. I keep a copy my family pictures, music collection on a 6T external hard drive , connected to a power bar. When I have to work with the external hard drive, before turning the power on, I make sure that the Ethernet connection is off. Wifi and bluetooth are banished in my house. Talking about me, the paranoid !:) If the hackers get me, I restore the cloned image of the OS (11G) - a 10 min job.

RE: Remembrances of vacuum tube days

Sherwood, Fisher, Dynaco ... all these are fading in our aging brain. Now I remember, when young, one of favorite pass time during the weekend is to browse & buy books and LP's , in downtown (Montreal) stores like A&A, Sam The Record Man.

RE: Flash finally coming to an end

I use a Chromebook. Recently I receive a few messages from Adobe to restart the machine in order for the Flash Update to take place. What should I do ? Restart the Chromebook or not ?
