Re: windows media player and mp4

The software (power DVD) that came with my Win10 laptop for watching DVDs started to cause problems. I switched to a free program you can download VLC media player. Works great for me. Supports many video formats including MP4.

Re: Leaving Internet cable modems on all the time?

I leave it on but the subject got me thinking: On average I'd guess I'm on-line four hours per day, mostly streaming video in the PM. That leaves 20 hours per day that the modem and router are on just doing the usual glowing and blinking. Let's see, according to energyusecalculator.com a typical cab...

Re: Crazy Dog Owner

2. Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like: When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy. Take naps. Stretch before rising. Run, romp, and ...

Re: Crazy Dog Owner

Slightly off-topic but while sifting through all the stuff on my old laptop deciding what to keep I found these tidbits some of you as dog owners might appreciate. 1. A Dog's Purpose? (from a 6-year-old). Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker....

Re: East Thrave Cottage

Wow! Just took a peek at those photos and suddenly got the distinct impression that I had been dropped into the next Carol Reed mystery. :cool: Around here the whole clan is trying to figure out what to do with the huge farmhouse that's been in the family since 1818, empty since my dad passed in 2012.

Re: Windows 10 - DVD wont play!

Hmm. I should have thought of that, alas though, it didn't work for me. Perhaps I should install the new AMD catalyst suite instead of being reminded every time, check for updates. We'll see. It wasn't always like this, 3-4 weeks ago it was fine. :scratch:

Re: Windows 10 - DVD wont play!

I have Windows 10 now on my Local Disk (C:) and Windows 7 on Local Disk (F:) and I too rarely use 7 anymore. However on those occasions when I need to use 7 for some older game or such I get no response from my mouse devices (1 corded and 1 wireless) and the only thing I can do is hit the reset butt...

Re: We've Set a Record!

So far this season the most snowfall around here was the ten inches (25.4cm) that fell back on Friday Feb. 5. Since it started out as rain it really stuck to the trees. It's mostly gone now. Around this time last year we got 30+ in. (76+ cm), I think it was winter storm Marcus. I tried uploading a p...
