Wax 2.0 for Windows PC Review

Wow! I’m pleasantly suprised by Wax 2.0 Video Editing software. Recently, I was searching around for freeware and open source video editing software programs, and came across this list of the 18 Best Video Editing Software For Free Download (Windows) in Google Search. I clicked on it because it had a few Stumblupon recommendation stars next to it -of course. After downloading the entire list of programs to a folder, I decided to start tinkering around with the freeware, video editing program Wax 2.0. This is a totally awesome and totally amazing program! If this program is any indication, I can’t wait to check out the rest of the list!

RSS Means Really Simple Sindication

Hey all, today I thought we would cover RSS Feeds and RSS Readers. First of, what is RSS you ask? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a way for bloggers and website operators to get their content out, and provides users with an easy way to read the newest blog posts from their favorite websites. When I first discovered RSS (about thirty years after everyone else), I thought, “Wow! Why wasn’t I reading RSS before?” I think the common phrase used to address the non-RSS initiated is “Come in from the cold!”.

Qualities I Appreciate in a Printer. “Low on ink – won’t print” and “no ink cartridge – won’t scan” Saddly Missing from List.

Remember the days when you would send a document to print, and regardless of your ink status the printer would just plow through it? Depending on just how finite to absolutely empty your ink was; you may have been able to read enough of your printed document. No a days, if your printer is something close to twenty percent low on ink an alarm sounds. Not only does a device alarm chime in; but the printer, in all likelihood, will refuse to print even part of your document. Unbelievable! Give me that ink!


Helper Cat

Got Windows PC computer problems? Don’t wanna pay an arm and a leg? Contact the Helper Cat by email:<>. The most common problem I encounter in computer repairs is users neglecting to “clean” their computer’s “temp” and “garbage” files. Over time, using a computer collects useless files and registry entries. You should be regularly running a few recommended cleaners; at least once a month, if not every two weeks.


Drive K:

OK. So, apparently you can install a laptop hard drive to a desktop. I just needed the SATA cord , after I bought a used hard drive. An extra power hook-up was already in the desktop. It was pretty straight forward adding the second hard drive to my computer. First, unplug the computer and open it up. Second, patch the cords and put everything in place. Third, press F2 on system startup, enter the BIOS and open up the next SATA port from the menu. Luckily I got the right one on the first try.Finally, fumble with some software trying to get your new drive letter to appear in the “My Computer” Folder.
