  • Re: Is it a picture or an image? We can't decide

    While it's a bit of a WTF, the way they distinguish between the two, it didn't have to be, imho. English isn't my native language but I think there is a difference between an image and a picture: a picture is something you take with your camera, while an image is simply a series of pixels/lines/etc. A picture is an image, but an image ...

    Maybe Becky did this to make sure her phone number "610 470 0278" didn't get linked to her name on Google.

    [quote user="Ronald"] I think it's time I switch to Box, they have a bigger free tier anyways. If I'm to get something for free, I want the best.[/quote] Bigger is not necessarily better. Or so my girlfriend tells me.

  • Re: Sneaky installer

    One I've seen not too long ago (can't remember the app) was a standard installation/custom installation thing. I did custom installation, removed all the toolbar stuff, and then clicked next. Then a dialog turned up with a LONG message and yes- and no-buttons. I nearly clicked yes, as it looked like a standard "blah blah you've ...
