@horash,

Thanks for the tip about Rollback Rx.

I've used system restore several times on my new Win7 machine already. The first was the result of downloading from CNET. Never again.

@Wnderer

A number of people have suggested FileHippo. I'll give them a try next time I need software.

@Measurement.Blues

You're right. CNET.com is evil. I got bit by them too. So far I've had good luck with FileHippo and sourceforge. Otherwise I try to find the official site for software before downloading.

CNET.com and download.com  used to be a reliable source for downloads but no more. I downloaded irfanview for my new Win7 laptop and the install added adware in the name of a survey. It was easy to uninstall once I googled the URL that it was going to.

After that I downlaoded malwarebytes and ran a scan. It told me I had some nimor issues and do I want to quarantiine them. After I did that I lost all internet access. It was essentially blocked. The solution was to roll bak to a point before installing irfanview. I then installed an older version downloded from cnet before that started adding the extra crap.

This poll clearly shows many of the concerns XP users are facing, and why they simply "can't make the change". It is not as easy as it seems! 

If you are one of the XP users, you can protect your PC by downloading a software called Rollback XP. It is like an instant time machine for your XP machine, and will protect you from viruses. You can test the product yourself by downloading it from here: http://www.horizondatasys.com/en/products_and_solutions.aspx?ProductId=40

@David, here's a photo of the new setup.



The external optical drive (unplugged) is on the right. To its left is the primary exteranl drive. Behind it is an Ethernet switch. the HP is above. The standing balck thing is a backup external drive. It's under a shelf with a Sonos sound system above. I'm thinking of getting another shelf to go over the  Dell Laptop shelf. The HP coud go on top and that give me more surface area for papers to clutter.

The rest of the saying is "one year, we even skipped the fourth of July."

I heard it as "ten months of winter and two months of poor sledding" :-)

6:13 PM, 27°C and 65% RH. I'm dripping.

Don't remind me of 4°C. htat's almost winter. Up in Maine they have a saying "We have two seasons, winter and the Fourth of July."

@MB... "Given that you're now replying to comments means it must be morning in the Australian winter. It's late afternoon here in the Boston summer."

Yep, 7.45AM, 4 degrees C and drizzling.  English weather.  And I am off to the salt mines.

My current Lenovo work laptop swtiches itself off when I close it so at work (where I plug in a bigger monitor) I have to leave it open an inch or two.  Others use a stand so that the laptop screen and the external monitor become one contiguous wide screen piece of real estate.  I can't be bothered, I have a 19 inch screen and it's fine.   Another workmate has a desktop and (like Max) has three huge screens working off it.     Too much for my small brain I think.....

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
