Re: [ SOLVED ] best password manager

I recently switched from Keepass to Bitwarden and I'm really happy with it. The change-over was seamless and everything works really well, much better than my old setup.

Re: Programming as a hobby

Re: Update your computer!

I don't understand why anybody wouldn't keep their computer updated. I wonder if they also keep their doors unlocked at night. :? Some people subscribe to the " If it ain't broke then don't fix it " principle. Unfortunately with something as complicated as software it's often difficult to...

Re: Print shop alternative -SOLVED

I don't think there's anything available for Linux that comes anywhere close to what PrintShop offers. It's basically a desktop publishing program but it comes with thousands of templates for everything imaginable that you're likely to ever want to print (greeting cards, calendars, certificates, ban...

Re: Is support for floppy drives gone?

Sure the floppy is readable. It is possible with worn out drives to have a drive write a floppy that wont be read by another floppy drive as its a little off, but the offset works for that drive in the old computer. Try a floppy you know in the past has worked on that specific drive to confirm. OP ...

Given a limited budget, the player must design a tank that can defeat a series of ever more challenging opponent tanks. ...

Re: How to download only PDFs from a URL?

Rather than trying to download each Mark Twain book as a separate PDF, why not try to find a collection of Mark Twain books that have been collected into a single file? You can download The Complete Works of Mark Twain as a single PDF . There's also The Entire Project Gutenberg Works of Mark Twain
