I would not be surprised if this were true given how terribly Windows 8 has been received, I like it’s speed, but that’s about it. The interface(s) are jarring, the lucky charms are ridiculous on a standard PC or laptop and the flat, aero free look is both boring and almost the same a Win 3.11. Oh, don’t get me started on the ludicrous tiled Start Page.
If the rumours are to be believed, all of these usability issues will be addressed, I guess we’ll know in a few weeks time. Oh, yes I am aware you can remove/fix/replace the majority of the items listed above, but hacking an OS to make it usable seems a bit OTT to me.
Microsoft is aiming to deliver a “technology preview” of its Windows “Threshold” operating system by late September or early October, according to multiple sources of mine who asked not to be named.
I’ve been using KeePass for a 5 or 6 years now and it makes generating secure passwords and retaining them safely very simple. Additionally it stores the web pages they may refer to as hyper-links. You can also run it from a USB memory stick and have all you details encrypted and to hand on the road.
I was after a simple method of importing my numerous internet passwords and ClockWork’s Firefox to KeePass Importer plugin covers this task nicely. If you have a lot of saved PW, and you use the import favicon option this takes a little time.

DNG Converter 8.6 is provided for customers using versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6.
Seven cute kittens at the Triskel Maine Coon cattery in Quebec were lined up for a group photo on June 14. Florence Salles, a breeder at the cattery, then decided to record a video while.
It’s is a bit slow loading (even with a Class 10 SD card) it, and its rather flaky free Android remote control actually do the job for pennies.
It does work out of the box, but some elements just don’t want to play nice, like importing media info or connection to the Synology NAS using credential or via NFS.
In the longer term I will either re-purpose some old PC hardware or more likely build a fan-less SFF PC based system and stream to the entire house from there, but for now it’s quicker than playing my laptop in…
Given that the download page at the Clevo site actually lists an old, none functional driver, I was a little surprised to find newer ones for a different machine that worked just fine over at NotebookDrivers.com this evening. That said, they list it as 8.0145 and it’s actually 8.0150…
