Last night I was sort of missing the sound of my old NAD stereo amp and thought… If only I could hook up a subwoofer with my old amp. Then it came to me that I could link my active sub through the headphones ‘out’ jack. I tried it and it works well. But still, the […]Read More More from the vintage audio nerd – Final encore and easy subwoofer you can probably do too!
Earlier today I was experimenting with getting a screenshot via remote computer. It’s not as easy as you’d think. The problem is that the software degrades image quality on the remote monitor. So when you do a screen capture, it’s a watered down version of the original. And then when you save it to .jpg […]Read More How to get a good screen capture via remote desktop
Last night I forfeited watching my favorite TV show to try to get an old RSS Reader working in Windows 10. After several “compatibility” and “troubleshooting” installs, I finally got it to work perfectly. Happy as a clam, I posted my success here. This morning, however, it’s back to square one. The program is giving […]Read More Maybe I spoke too soon… the finicky world of old software
I’m still on Windows 7. I actually like it better than Windows 10. With a computer I want a tool, not a friend. And I find Win 7 is pretty streamlined while Win 10 has too much bloat. However, Win 7 has its limits. One thing it doesn’t do to well, as far as I […]Read More Two Awesome File Management Tools for Automated Actions
Travel the world thru radio… There are many radio apps but I like this one. It's free for PC at the Chrome Web Store. No ads, other than those that the stations themselves put out. #music #world #radio pic.twitter.com/Ig87EVofI7 — Mike Clark (@MikeClark) January 9, 2018Read More Travel the world thru radio…
So I uploaded the previous pic (see below) into the Android version of Pixlr (on Windows via AndY), which has a really nice assortment of free, downloadable fonts. This saves time and hassle, not having to install extra fonts for other Windows-based image editors. Slight color degradation from the original, caused by uploading and working […]Read More And again with TEXT from Pixlr (android app) on Windows
Here’s an interesting twist on a pic I took Sunday night. The photo itself is unexceptional. A 12x zoom of a statue high up in St. Mike’s Cathedral. Recently, however, I discovered the Prisma app for Android. This time I fixed it on my Windows computer, running Prisma via AndY, which is a virtual Android […]Read More Prisma (android app) on Windows…
I haven’t tested out android wireless cams yet but for our old iPad2 and iPhone there are two free apps that I’m quite impressed with. First, EpoCam Viewer is popular and seems reliable. But the free version has almost no options. You’re set at 640 by 480 resolution, and can’t choose image quality. Also no […]Read More Turn your phone or tablet into a wireless webcam = cool!
Tonight I had fun trying out a free app called WinDoc. Basically, it makes doing split or multiple screens a bit easier. If you click on the image you should be able to read what I wrote in the notepad. Before I did this screen capture I was watching TV and searching through my news […]Read More WinDoc – My latest adventures in Geekery
