Bernice: You should have a key on your keyboard normally to the right of the F12 key that says Print Screen....
Once you have pushed that button it will store a picture of whats on your screen. If i remember rightly in XP you will then have to open Paint or a similar program and Paste it into there, then you can save.
Just in case you didnt know XP is long out of date now & Microsoft do not provide any backup or support for it

Any programmers here that is familiar with BK? Those that I knew that could of been of assistance, like toedder, mctrivia & hexkid are no longer here at BK. I have some questions and maybe a deal that I could offer you if BK is sold as planned. Nothing etched in stone but I would like to know if anyone is interested in technical support.

ketchuplover: Thought a while aout that and am still not sure what to think. Because it feels right what you say, but I am asking myself how to handle for example books. Lets say you sold a book about chess strategy one day and twenty years later you do not agree with yourself any more. Do you have the right to make all owners of your book put it into the dustbin?

What is with newspapers and any printed item in the worlds archives?

...and so on...

I would recommend converting to linux. Zorin OS 8 is an easy distro to use as it looks like windows. Free, will run easily on older computers and faster than windows.

ketchuplover: I've had no problems with it. I think the "secret" is to uncheck that box that was there before completing the download. (I don't remember now what it was about). At POGO, the forums suggested unchecking that box, for less problems. I did uncheck it, and I've had zero issues. Possibly coincidence, though, I suppose. For some reason I practically never experience problems when other people do.

Isn't it amazung how effective Apple's marketing strategy is? People want to purchase a tablet and they say "I want an iPad."

Jelly bean is really just a refinement of the OS over ice cream sandwich.

WellyWales: Yes, but is it specifically an ipad you want, or any good tablet, e.g Samsung, Sony, Nexus tablet. Should it run iOS, Windows8 or Android.
What are the main things you want to get out of it ?

WellyWales: Actually there are only a few ipads to choose from, only nice thing about Apple, that you are not blinded by choice. However, if you are looking at tablets generally the choice really explodes.
Is it specifically an iPad you want?

I guess some of it depends on whether you want Wi-Fi or not and many other options.

Subject: Firefox-Browser on TOR for Mac - Javascript and Flash
Hi all,

I am trying to install TOR on my Mac, which is a software for anonymous browsing. It comes with an inbuilt firefox-like browser, but with no extension.

Up to now I wasnt able to install shockwave/flash add-ons to be able to watch TV-streams while using TOR.

There are some installation-tips in the web and I tried a lot...

Any suggestions?

Announcing Outreach Program for Women Internships for the Linux Kernel: Please Apply

The Linux Foundation is funding three Linux kernel internships through the Outreach Program for Women administered by the GNOME Foundation. These internships have a $5,000 stipend and come with a $500 travel grant to attend and speak at LinuxCon this fall. This is a great opportunity to work with a mentor and get started with kernel development, which as many articles report, is a great way to land a high-paying job.
