    Sadly MPC-HC may have reached the end of its development

    I switched over to MPC-BE years ago; it's still actively developed and looks better than MPC-HC.

    Hit a Folding (Stanford) milestone? Post it here:

    Passed 20 million and didn't notice. The folding goes on. EDIT: What happened to the badges and the site? I'm out of the loop.

    A Fast USB drive that works with Tails OS?

    I've used it USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 usb drives (Transcend and Sandisk). Worked just fine. Make sure you use the Universal USB Installer. Format the drive as NTFS first, then use the Un. USB Installer to install TAILS. Mine runs just fine.

    Firefox 34 - New Search Bar

    Stupid question time: Why are you all using the search box? I take that shit off the UI as soon as I install FF. Open new page, set search into AwesomeBar, and type what you want - it automatically google searches.

    looing for a uTorrent alternative

    Another vote for qbittorrent. Tixati is nice, but is flagged on some private sites, so you may have trouble. qbittorrent has all the features, looks good, labeling works, and is lightweight. WIN.

    Software for renaming a bunch of files?

    I use http://www.advancedrenamer.com/ because I can use it as a portable installation and it is easy to customize the filenames (lots of parameters, even using REGEX).

    Music organizer software suggestions

    If you need tagging, then MusicBrainz Picard. If you want a player that organizes, sorts, converts, deletes, etc, then I recommend MusicBee.

    Which one you like: RAR, ZIP, 7z, TAR?

    I use 7-zip as my main extractor, as I find the dual-pane layout invaluable (does any other program do this?). However, I keep WinRAR around for archiving items which will be uploaded to a certain place which shall not be named.

    Where have all the Ducky keyboards gone?

    I'm in Taiwan where ducky keyboards are made. Always in stock here. :D Typing on my Shine 3 now, actually. Great keyboard. http://ecshweb.pchome.com.tw/search/v3.2/?q=ducky%20shine%203

    Need a music player with a certain feature

    Musicbee can do this. http://musicbee.wikia.com/wiki/Playlists#Auto-Playlists Great program. Absolutely free, updated often, looks great. I switched from Mediamonkey to Musicbee and haven't looked back since.

    What is popular for password management?

    Been using keepass for years. I just sync it between my computers using Sugarsync. One very strong password + key file to open it up, after that, it's pretty easy to fill in username/password fields.

    Why would any1 buy Adobe Acrobat Professional when Fox IT PDF do it for free?

    I work with PDFs quite often (peer-reviewed research), and I often need markup and, often more importantly, OCR. Adobe's Clearscan is - in my very limited experience - second to none. It really does a great job 95% of the time (the other 5% it ends up mangling the text, but this is only in cases...

    Finally made 15,000,000. Will be reinstalling Windows soon. Not sure if I'll continue folding, move on to another project, or what.

    Who's left crunching f@h?

    I'm still folding. About to hit 15 million in the next month or so (after almost 9 years). Never heard of any other things to do (BOINC, etc.) so I'm not sure why I'd want to. I just have F@H running in the background, doing my little bit for science.

    Why do people use WhatsApp/Friendster/Etc

    WhatsApp used to be popular here in Taiwan, but because only the first year is free, it fell out of favor. Now people use LINE, although some also use WeChat. It's quite nice, as you get messaging, and calling through 3g/4g/data instead of texting. It probably has to do with the mobile plans...

    Good Podcast Players for Windows?

    Not sure about a dedicated podcast player. I've been using MusicBee as an mp3 player/music manager/podcast manager for a few months, and I love it. Great alternative to Mediamonkey.

    Best Youtube downloader?

    Yep, this is what I use, and I highly recommend it. You can also try the Developer version which is updated everyday (can be annoying), but the stable version does a great job and the developer is very active in the userscripts forum.

    How can I do this with my firefox?

    You could search direct from the location bar. By default, the location bar is a google search. For other search options, I setup a keyword. "wp" for wikipedia, "imdb" for imdb, etc.

    Is iTunes still crap?

    I used to love Mediamonkey, but then it stopped being just a music player - now it does video and everything else. I found it still worked great, but there were little bugs here and there (at least on my computer). I've since switched over to MusicBee, which is awesome. It's a lightweight...

    Is iTunes still crap?

    Never liked iTunes. I used Mediamonkey for a long time, but it's also become rather buggy and slow (this may just be my computer). Recently I switched over to MusicBee (Free, offers a portable edition) and haven't looked back. It's fast, free, does everything I need, and has great support.

    What is everyone playing now?

    Been watching a few EVE Online Let's Play videos - the game looks amazing. I have 3 accounts, but haven't played in about 3 years. I'm trying to come up with reasons not to start up again because it is seriously addicting. I should probably log on and do something with the billions of ISK...

    Buying a PS3. What are must-have accessories?

    Thanks for the great suggestions. I'm definitely getting an extra controller or two. Looked at the remotes, but I think I might go for a Logitech Harmony - there's an adapter for the PS3 and it controls all my other devices. Pretty spendy, though. I don't plan to play much online. I'm really...

    Buying a PS3. What are must-have accessories?

    Never had a PlayStation before, but I'm looking forward to a few games (Red Dead Redemption) and being able to stream HD media to my TV. I plan on getting the 500gb slim model, probably a couple extra controllers, and of course an HDMI splitter for the TV. Are there any other must-have...

    Anyone using KMPlayer?

    Never used it, although it is insanely popular in Taiwan - it's all I ever see on computers. I hate the interface, though. Apparently, Daum Potplayer is considered a superior successor to KMplayer, although I haven't used it that much, either. I use MPC-HC (the newest build from xvidvideo.ru)...

    Dumb question... which version for older GPU?

    Cool, thanks for the info guys. No vid card upgrade in my near future, unfortunately. I guess I'll stick with simple CPU folding.

    Dumb question... which version for older GPU?

    So I've been running the latest v7 for a while now... and never realized my GPU (HD4890) wasn't supported, so I've only been folding on the CPU. Which older version do I need to revert back to to have SMP and GPU folding all in one? Cheers.

    Any decent alternatives to VLC?

    I use MPC-HC (the latest from xvidvideo.ru) What's the purpose of all the LAV filters and MadVR? On Win7, I install Haali and MPC-HC, and I've never had a problem playing back anything.

    Cant install windows 7 - asks for a driver?

    I ran into this issue on an older (2008) Asus desktop. I was trying to install Win7 from a USB key - the issue went away when I installed it using a CD.

    Windows 7 Experiment

    I have it running on a few P4s with ~1gb of ram. Runs fine, a little slow, but Office works, as do web browsers, updates, everything else.

    Folding on Win7 w/ Guest Mode

    I'll give it a try, but these aren't "guest accounts" but rather accounts with Guest Mode - sounds similar, but it's different. There are no changes kept (everything is reverted on logout, drives are locked to that user, etc) - it's like SteadyState for Windows 7. Anyway, I'll give it a try...

    Folding on Win7 w/ Guest Mode

    Howdy all, I'm getting ready to borg a few computers that I'm in charge of. These computers are setup with Windows 7 and the users will be logging in with a Guest Mode enabled account - it's like SteadyState for windows 7 - they aren't allowed to save documents, all changes are reverted when...

    Win7 guest mode - make changes through admin account possible?

    Hi all, I'm looking to setup a few public computers for some students to use. I'd like to install Win7 and various software and then create a "Student" account and turn on Guest Mode for that account so that they can't install stuff, make changes, etc. Previously, I have used an Admin account...
