  1. Choosing one among the sea of personal speakers is pretty hard.There are a lot of factors for speakers to please you, the first one being your ears. Take note that your hearing will change after time also, so that go with the best sounding speaker to you. If you are demoing in a large electronics store, I must warn you that the noise around will disturb your demo. Also, don't just rely on specs or price, as a lot of manufacturers are cheating on these numbers. Do you Europeans have something similar to Black Friday before Christmas?

    4th Failed Hard Drive

    I agree with Black64 on every point Refurb'd drives are drives that have had problems but then were repaired, then sold without the root failure identified. There is no way to guarantee how long it will survive. Power losses are what got me the most hard drives killed, they will go silently as well. Drive overheating (sandwiched in between two drives, with no airflow) could be another reason. Also, Seagate bought the Maxtor company a while ago, and they kept the same drive with a different name. Maxtor were notorious for hard drive failures. A low-cost power supply could also be a cause, as feeding unstable voltage or sending dirty power to sensitive electronics. The worse the power supply, the higher the peaks will be. The following image is one taken fron an actual power supply. It cannot be measured with a multimetre, but it can still damage electronic components. Since you have posted no specs, we cannot determine the culprit just yet. The other thing would be a possible hit on the case, if it was knocked or fell even from a small height.
  4. Two things: I thought that Cambridge Soundworks and Cambridge audio were related, and that the Soundworks was a more affordable with good quality/price ratio. Not at all. Here is the point: Cambridge audio is a British company, so I thought that it would be available down Europe. Cambridge Soundworks is located in western Canada, so I believe you might not get their products around. Cambridge audio is higher grade stuff, and as a consequence tends to be pricey. Since you are in Germany, you could look at Blaupunkt, but I am not aware of their prices. Teufel has a line of those also. There is also some Creative stuff that could be contenders as well (they have a line of portable speakers). With 250 Euros, you could take a stroll to an home electronique boutique and get good products for your money, and you could probably demo the stuff. Just got to take the "facts" they are providing with a grain of salt.
  5. You also have the Cambridge Soundworks Ooze XL (or another one in the Ooze range) as well ae Logitech z515 and Beats speakers. Note that those can be boomy and don't have defined Hi-frequencies. There is also some Sony ones, if you can get a demo of them it would help you to choose or dismiss one or the other. Bose might be tolerable for this application, but I wouldn't recommend it for home speakers, Klipsch or Cambridge Soundworks would be in the higher end. I got JBL pro monitors but they aren't in the same range, neither type or price.

    To El Capitan, about FTP services... Take note some ISP are blocking the FTP Protocol (doesn't matter which port, they are looking in the header) so FTP is unusable on home servers. I used to do it a lot in 2004-2007, until I couldn't get nobody to connect. I was then with Cogeco, I haven't tried with Videotron (both are cable ISP). Years ago, it was working fine with Bell, but they have a terrible customer service, they can change your bill as often as they are pleased and whatnot. It was by DSL service. Maybe Wevs has the solution. Also, what about traditional mail and a USB memory stick? Best solution yet for mixed *content* and file size.

    fixing old photo

    I think I did not explain myself clearly, I was not sure when posting... Blue, I did not mean that your smile is scary (take note that at this point, I have not seen a picture of you, other than the small one you had). What I meant is the photoshopped smile was scary because it was not aligned / larger than expected. Yes the cleanup was excellent, using the big (now let's be clear at this point, I mean elder) sister's nose is a good one, and yes the hair / cheeks / eyes are well restored. But what if I said this is what your daughter looked like!? I doubt any of you would would say, ah well, close enough. Even more so that Dling wanted to print and give the result.

    fixing old photo

    Good God, THIS is the reason why I refrained myself posting any result. Waco the girl you took looks around 12 years old. Blue, you are going to give OP nightmares with the smile you put on that girl. There is something off with it is scary. Have you taken it from an early picture of you??? For this exact reason, dling will never trust the forum.

    Using Onedrive with your Microsoft account would work well. You can access it by changing the e-mail tab to the Onedrive tab. After that you can upload and select which files to share with whom you want.

    Ah, tell me about those nasty worms. Been fighting them along with my brother a couple years ago.

    fixing old photo

    I could get most of the blemishes out of the cheeks of the younger girl, as well as in her hair. Since the picture is pretty matte, the skin tones are close. Her right eye is an easy fix as well, a copy and flip of her left eye (just the corner tho) I was thinking of rebuilding the nose (photo got destroyed there) and whether rebuild the right half of the mouth, as there is that big white spot (shiny teeth? ) that removes most of the mouth. I even thought : Hey, they're sisters, so I believe they got the same mouth, so maybe I could recopy the older girl's smile onto the younger's face. Nope, just nope. It seems to be impossible with another reference picture. I believe that even if you'd pay for having this picture corrected, that whether they would use another girl's smile or ask you for a reference as well.

    The reason why they skipped their Windows numbering to 10 : For some programs, it would appear as Windows 95 or 98 !!

  18. Hi! The first thing I gotta say is that error description is unuseful for us. The useful part would be the minidump cited at the end of this text. Also, copy-pasting the whole thing makes the thread difficult to read. The information of the crashed driver / software will be included in the minidump. All you need to do is open that file and find out (discard the hex values) which driver crashed. The second thing you don't mention is if you kept everything at stock clock. We would need to know how long has it been you have such blue screens. If it's since you put up the computer or two weeks ago (example), causes are different. Recent driver change? Need more info.

    Should hope that MythOS (unreleased modded version of an OS) is not a farfetch'd. Might get his tail ripped off:

    Is jelly that MythOS and Onion stole her thread.

    Ninja'd me , as my comment was meant for Onion. Got to put his case in his sig.

    Is wasting space with his old and outdated sig. Is trying to convince me to have a sig, but it's not working because I am too mature for this (read : introvert and juvenile). Then I think : how to cut an oignon without tears.

    Is mocking me because I have grown as a balanced adult and not a NERD! like her. (Complete lie, as I like to do electronics in Minecraft, I feel shameful) Also, her sig is not showing up (for me at least).
