    Do you use a Download Accelerator?

    Jim and Stan...try this. Start IDM and go to Downloads/Options/File Types and delete the PDF entry from the list of files to be automatically downloaded.........Doug

    PC Aviator issues?

    Right on Sue. Not only that, there is no way I'd ever let them have access to my computer. A really bad idea..........Doug

    A bit more details here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SR.N4 . I didn't realize it's been almost 20 years since they were retired.........Doug

    Thanks Ray.....those guys will be missed..........Doug
  8. Wow JD. I've been using RC for so many years I can't even remember not having it. A few (a lot of) years back I was living in Alpharetta and I drove down to pick up a couple of monitors you had for sale. That had to be 14-15 years ago and they are still working. Thanks for all the help over the years and all my best for the future. You'll be missed..........Doug

    I always thought the terms of the LM licensing contract with MS prohibits them from entering the "entertainment" market.....

    Very true. I've seen the parks closed also. But it's rare and not something that Disney does willingly. Like you, I had annual passes for almost 15 years but finally gave them up. We live about 45 minutes from the parks and went frequently. I didn't give up the passes because of the costs but after you've been there 200-300 times the experience just isn't the same 😃..........Doug

    Ever wonder how much Disney World prices have increased been since the opening? Mind blowing.....but still not "gouging": https://www.gobankingrates.com/saving-money/entertainment/how-much-disney-world-cost-year-born/

    Disney's policy is to never close admissions to a theme park due to overcrowding. They are using ticket prices as a form of crowd control. Prices are increased until a point is reached where, at a given level of sales, the maximum number of allowed daily tickets is reached. As long as folks are willing to pay that price for a purely optional experience there is no "gouging" involved.

    As John says, prices are always determined by the market. The only thing that drives retail pricing is demand. Prices are what they are. If enough folks stop buying at a given price point prices will fall. As demand increases prices will rise. Such has it always been and such it will always be..........Doug

    I can't help with the telemarketer or world peace problems Noel but you can easily solve the popup ad problem. See this for more info: https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/best-free-ad-blockers/ . I've used AdBlock Plus for years and it's really very good. You'll not only see no more popups but 99% of all the other ads will be gone also..........Doug
