Browsers still re-fetch pages when using back button

Posted 04-11-2012 at 11:42 AM by Skaperen

Browsers these days are still trying to re-fetch data when I press the infamous "back button". I think this was always a dumb idea.

Must remember to press "Submit Thread"

Posted 04-10-2012 at 09:46 PM by farmerdave

Can't believe I did that, wrote a very long post with lots of details for a new thread, then checked it out with a preview.

A surprising opensource PDF editor.

Posted 04-09-2012 at 11:38 PM by stretchedthin

I started this tutorial in response to a question asked on one of my other videos. Someone wanted to know what I would suggest as a PDF editor in Linux. I had every intention of showing PDFedit version 0.4.5, which is a little old now, having been released in May of 2010. However, I ended up finding totaly different application which was a bit of a surprise to me and the application did a great job editing a PDF.

Old laptops love Linux

Posted 04-09-2012 at 10:46 AM by error_401
Tags laptop, linux

I'm using Linux on 2 own laptops and have installations running on 3 others.

One is a 7 year old siemens-nixdorf laptop used by a retired person for internet e-mail and a bit of card games. He loves it for the speed and ease of use. Especially the order of the programs in the very simple groups such as "Internet" "Multimedia" etc.

One is a 5 year old Toshiba. It came to me with a very ugly virus, trojan, worm infection. Unable to get rid of it under...
