    Hi all,
    I took a few videos on my iPhone this weekend and, being in a hurry to capture the scene, did not zoom in sufficiently in a couple of them so the subject is too far in the background. It...

    Yes, I can open and view the conversations in Firefox and a text editor but neither are pretty. The JSON file doesn't convert to HTML very well and certainly doesn't look like the Facebook HTML...

    Calendar Creator Plus V2. Works on Win XP but I can't remember if I got it working on Win 7. Probably not because that PC is 64-bit as well.

    Great thread.

    On my Windows 8.1 PC I can choose which updates to install but thats no longer an option in my Win10. I won't be needing the PRO version so will have to put up with it I guess.
