My biggest problem is that everything interests me - technology, theology, psychology, physics, biochemistry, music, writing and more! I read contantly and for some reason absorb lots of trivia. The one constant the last 25 years has been computer technology - as a hobby, a profession and as a passion.

Wow. Coming in looks like the plane was stalled. Pilot fighting the nose up. Could be he was deliberately trying to ditch in the river. That would make him a hero.

G'day all.

Online magazines are a dime-a-dozen and you often end up reading a bunch of aggregated material, unoriginal rubbish or catchy headlines that hide thin content.

Thankfully there are exceptions to this. Founded in 1996, www.slate.com is a general interest, daily Internet magazine with analysis and commentary about politics, news, business, technology, and culture.  With a simple layout and interface, the magazine is a pleasure to browse and their culture blog browbeat, (http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat.html) is a great read.

Good to see the positive uses for this technology being explored. Other ideas I have heard lately are using drones to patrol coastal regions for abalone poachers and using them to map waterways to manage alien vegetation. In fact anywhere where a helicopter was used before for aerial photography, this can be done much cheaper with a drone.

Morning all.

What do you do when you are watching the news and the financial reports come on? Years ago I used to switch channels, but then I started making small investments in the stock market and needed to "decode" some of the gobbledygook and jargon that financial markets use.

 If I need to know something now, my first stop is always www.investopedia.com. Though it began as a simple financial dictionary, the site is now a resource for investment and personal finance education, market analysis and free trading simulators.

Add to the list taking photo's of things you want to remember and videos of the back of customers computers do you can remember where the damn USB cables go.
How #gadgets change our live by Jean Jullien... however I still think it is okay to:
1. Read a book in a metro 
2. Take a photo of a masterpiece dish if you are in a good restaurant or eating something really unique 
3. Automate simple processes, life self-service for instance to save your time for something more creative or productive 
4. Video and photo-record the moments that we don’t want to forget.

G'day all. I'm not one of those computer techs that will tell you "reload your Windows" for the slightest error, but occasionally reloading the OS is inevitable.

The real work is not reloading Windows, but reloading all the apps and utilities that one tends to accumulate over time - Skype, Picassa, Filezilla, Firefox etc. Usually you just have to go at it one at a time.

 ninite.com allows you to create an installer app that will download and install you favourite apps in the background, without you having to click, and without unnecessary restarts.

Damn. Monday morning. Hi all.

Can't take the Monday blues away but I can tell you something you probably know already. www.bleepingcomputer.com is resource that offers users free original content consisting of computer help and tutorials in a simple, easy way that anyone can understand. The site predominantly relies on volunteers.

The site has been around since 2004 and though it may be text, it is simple enough for even those of you that are not technical to use.  One of the best features of the site is that it offers free one-to-one malware removal help to registered users.

G'day all.

So you are trying to access a website and it just hangs and hangs. Is the problem your computer, the Internet or the site? Usually I just open a new tab with Google. How fast the page loads tells me whether the problem may be my end. If you search "test" you can see how quick the search comes up, and the first few entries are for connection speed tests, very handy.

If you suspect that it is the site that is the problem, you can  go over to isitdownrightnow.com  and enter the URL. iidrn.com has loads of stats on the sites and you can vent your spleen in the comments section with an option to echo the comment to Facebook .
