"I was not a fan of their products myself but Lotus Notes allowed ordinary office workers to get some amazing things done."
I loved notes and wished for years that it had been taken up more widely, rather than the alternative world of people using email to connect the dots in their business.
Greg, I couldn't agree more and to be honest was bloody pleased to see your post here.
I was guessing the way the comments would go, but was hoping there would be a bit more balance, but no, these days in the eyes of most reg commentards if you're brilliant you can wear what the heck you like and you should never apologise to anyone.
I was brought up in the 70s/80s and my mum would tear a strip off me for appearing in such a shirt and for once I'd agree with her.
Sorry if that means I'm in a minority and gets a ton of downvotes, but this stuff really can matter.
I believe some folks here have an inflated sense of the value of their lucky charms, hence the dramatic pronouncements about your withdrawal. It's just a place to share nonsense with friends.
I don't know what's in your photos or links, other than the obvious kittens, but there's nothing in mine of any commercial value, nor anything which would enable someone to compromise me.
BTW. If you post anonymously here, then by my mark unless your contribution warrants the anonymity (ie. it's about your firm or whatever) then I'm not interested in your opinion, get your tfh on and go away :P
The director of the accounts department preferred 123 for Windows as he already knew all the keyboard shortcuts/macros, but the office suite was significantly cheaper to roll out across the company - pretty much the price of either a 123 or word perfect licence, so that was what swung it in our firm rather than all this airy fairy functionality and ease of use stuff which we'd like to think is so important.
15+ years later I still would rather use Threads than Outlook though, it was so much easier to follow a group discussion.
Don't know what kind of mount you're talking about, but these things encompass the top and bottom. I can only assume you're talking about off road, as I did 3000 kms on the road with no such problems, example of what I had then - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0045D4090
Like you I use it multiple times each day. I didn't like being reliant on google for everything and found the number of repeated links for seemingly the same content tiresome to trawl through, just page after page of results only a fraction of which contained what I want.
I found that when I went to bing I got a fraction of the matches, but that it invariably included the information I was looking for, which seems a bit at odds with the findings of Sophos, but then to be brutally honest, in my eyes their credibility is ground level in terms of identifying a threat these days ;)
Your comments are a little misleading if someone was looking for a player which could hook up to other output devices.
"Likewise, if you hook it up to an AV receiver, Dolby and DTS-HD soundtracks sound superb."
Some folks on here should lift up their eyes from their monitors and see that others sometimes have different requirements to themselves :P
Can't see how much disk space you have - don't you just click on the computer and it tells you for all the drives?
Can't find files - don't you just type the name in that box in the top corner?
You bought the 32 bit version and it still used the maximum amount of ram available to the 32 bit o/s, do what?
Things appeared fuzzy - did you try setting it to the native resolution perhaps?
Have some people had a couple of shandys today?
None of the non-techy facebook users I know are users of the alternatives Franklin suggests and nor were m/any of them users of myspace that JP mentioned.
I think you both underestimate its reach and the percentage of folks who are on it, I know there's only a minority of my friends or family who aren't on it and that's pretty unprecedented.
Personally I couldn't care whose ads I have to ignore, as long as they're not so intrusive that I can ignore them :)
"Win2000 onwards were ok , but NT 3.11 and 3.5* were lame dogs and should never have been released. "
A pedant writes - you seem to be mixing up your history of NT and WFW. And to be honest I'm disappointed in the other readers that I had to emerge from lurking just to point this out. Clearly they are very grief stricken.
NT 3.1, 3.5, 3.51, 4. We got all of them to work pretty much ok.
I think the last one we even tested on a Multia, which was intended to be Digital's Alpha workstation to replace all the PC desktops, but with deployment tools and the like. I think application compatibility and the cost of the machines gave them a big hurdle to overcome.
