    Old Drive-In Movie Nostalgia...

    Hi Lin, I think the last drive in movie I watched was "Easy Rider" back in 1969 when I was about 13 years old. I have always been an early riser so I would usually go to sleep around 8 pm. Unfortunately the drive in movies didn't start until after dark which was about 9 pm during the summer so I always fell asleep before the movie was over. Glad we now have HDTV with streaming video so we don't have to leave the house. Thanks, Tom

    Hi Lin, Haven't used XP in a few years, but it was a good stable operating system. I started out using CP/M, then DOS, Windows 3, Windows 95, ... My CPU started with 8088, 286, 386,486,Pentium,... My next CPU I think is going to be AMD Ryzen. Maybe do a reset to default in Chrome. https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3296214?hl=en Tom

    Scalable Vector Graphics

    Thanks for thinking about this idea. I know expensive software like Moho Pro can import SVG but it lacks many other features of PTE. Tom

    It has been up the few times I have checked today from Northern California. I created a monitor page that checks every 5 minutes. https://stats.uptimerobot.com/5LRjKFP07 Tom

    Can't send "Safe Executable File"

    Another reason to have a standalone player for data files so you can just send the data file. Sometimes if you rename the extension to something other than .exe it will trick the email server into not scanning the file inside a zip container. Sending a YouTube or Vimeo video links is probably the safest option. I know from past experience dropbox scans .exe and if they think there is a virus will block file sharing for the folder. I have been testing https://wetransfer.com/ and it's pretty good. Tom
  7. It would be nice to have SVG import support since we are missing graphic primitives such as lines, triangles, circles. I know there are alternatives like masks to make circles. The ability to zoom graphic objects without pixelation is my wish. If it works for fonts maybe it is not too hard to add? Thanks, Tom
  8. I noticed there is a new option in the chrome web browser to cast local files instead of casting a tab or desktop. It seems to work great with PTE created mp4 files. Now I can watch slideshows and use my PC at the same time. The average bitrate used by Chromecast in my limited testing is about 5 Mbps. The quality seems decent and right click to select loop video. https://chromeunboxed.com/new-cast-file-feature-headed-to-chrome/ Tom

    Integrated or Dedicated Graphics

    My mistake. 4 TB Hitachi is my favorite. I blame it on my 9 month old kitten who likes to keep me occupied while I try to type. I better stop now before she sees me typing. Thanks, Tom

    Integrated or Dedicated Graphics

    That system looks really good. If you do any video editing or high resolution photography then 4 TB is not too big. Even larger 8 TB drives are common now. If I had a choice of HD I would get a Hitachi. Even though they are owned by WD I think they are still a better drive. Unlike owning a Mac it's not that hard to upgrade your system later to add more RAM and larger SSD/HD. My personal system is a 512 GB SSD + 4 GB data drive. I only have 128 GB free on the SSD. Tom

    Integrated or Dedicated Graphics

    I have the Nvidia 1050 card and it works great with PTE. The prices of the high end graphics cards like the Nvidia 1060 or higher are inflated thanks to the cryptocurrency miners. My next computer will probably be an AMD Ryzen APU. If anybody has experience with PTE slideshows and the Ryzen AMD APU I would like to know how well they work. I'm going to wait for the Spectre/Meltdown to settle down a little longer before I buy another Intel CPU. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3253306/computers/ryzen-apu-review-ryzen-plus-vega-saves-budget-gamers.html Thanks.

    SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

    Hi Ken, The technology is amazing. I could watch the boosters fall back to Earth over and over again. Thanks, Tom

    Support for dual/multiple monitors

    +1 for render slideshow on multiple monitors. Currently screensaver limited to primary 1 monitor. I have a screensaver that has option to extend or duplicate (serene screen marine aquarium 3). So maybe this is possible, not sure how difficult. Thanks, Tom

    SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

    Hi Lin, Elon mentioned after the launch how the Tesla looked like it was fake. He said CGI animation could have generated a much more realistic Tesla in space. Thanks, Tom
  15. SpaceX recently launched their new Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time. The double booster landing is surreal. This 2 minute slideshow was created with PTE, Bandicam screen recorder, and Bandicut video cutter. Backup of slideshow here (80 MB). http://tommendenhall.com/pte/Falcon_Heavy_1.zip Thanks, Tom
