This is a stretch I know, but in the  movie "The Earthling" filmed in Australia in 1979... excellent movie by the way... in the credits at the end, was the name Paul Martin ..construction.   Jafo, something you did long ago?

Computer monitors have become much bigger and the prices have become quite more reasonable than they used to. I picked up a nice 34" widescreen for just a couple of hundred bucks. It's not 4K, but HD has been working quite well for me. I do have a 4K touchscreen laptop, and that is certainly nice to have when working with images and video. But the question today is what size wallpaper resolution do you typically look to download? Do you even look to see what resolutions are available?
Like the title; except, I'm also thinking of other stuff too. My problem I can't figure out how to make my own maps of different regions. Can you explain how to do that.

I have a new CNC machine going in my shop, and I needed a Windows PC to run the code going to the machine. My current laptop I use for work is a Dell XPS 15" 4K touchscreen which is something I'm not going to keep in a place that is often filled with sawdust. So I needed something as cheap as possible but still capable of running quite a few applications. After searching on Amazon and eBay I narrowed it down to a $90 Windows tablet and an Acer 15" laptop for $190. I ended up purchasing the lapto...

My first experience with any kind of video editing was in college. I had a camcorder (man when's the last time you called anything THAT?) and I wanted to do a creative project for a class. So, I gathered a bunch of friends, slapped them in costumes (it really didn't take much convincing, we were all a bunch of fun-loving nerds), picked a peppy song, and took a bunch of footage. Then I lugged my gear to the Mac lab to teach myself how to edit together a video. An ancient shot from an ancient...

Greetings fellow Armchair Politicians! Well...isn't this the craziest election year we've ever seen? I've been on every single version of TPM, and between Coronavirus, Protests, Economic uncertainty, and Biden's "turtle" strategy, I've never seen an election cycle like this! But that just means it's time to get out an update for The Political Machine! Currently being tested by QA, the 1.3 update will be out soon. In the meantime, here are some of the goodies you'll get when the update...

The first is Windows Repair Toolbox v3.0.2.5, which you can find here: https://www.oldergeeks.com/downloads/file.php?id=1599 It works for Windows XP through W10. It contains tens of utilities for the repair of just about any problem, and is an essential for anyone having to repair family computers. Check out its contents at the link, and you'll see why I didn't list the utilities included. The second is a rather new one, for the removal of remnants of antiviral programs which might...

I'm working on types of content people like and want more of on WinCustomize. Something I'm looking at now is triggered .dreams for DeskScapes. A triggered .dream is basically an animated wallpapers that changes at a designed point. Blissful Dream was always one of my favorites. So my question to the community is do you use any triggered .dreams? If so, what specifically do you like and what themes would you like to see. For example, .dreams that switch from day to night. If you ha...
