As I have not had a need to use IrfanView for VERY large files, it looks like I should stick with the 32 bit version and use less space on my SSDs.  :) Thank you Alan.

General Discussion / IrfanView
« Last post by dickJ on March 14, 2016, 10:53:30 AM »
I just received notice of an Update of IrfanView, a program I have happily used for sometime.  When I checked my files, I discovered I have the 32 bit version, but there is also a 64 bit version.  Should I delete the 32 bit V and install the 64bit, or, just update the 32 bit? Advantages? Disadvantages?
I have a 64 bit OS and processor.

Hello All,


Today, I uploaded a video screen capture of how to go about changing your bulletin board password.  You will find it at www.slobytes.org/documents/change-bb-password.mp4


NOTE:  There is no need to change your current password.  However, if you wish to do so, this link will show you how.

General Discussion / Tour of the Amazon Facility - San Bernadino
« Last post by rsutter on March 07, 2016, 09:18:20 AM »
Hello All,

I just reserved a space on a tour of the Amazon Fulfillment Center facility in San Bernadino. The earliest date available was September 5th, 2017.  I scheduled the 2:00 pm tour.
If you would like to car pool with me, let me know.  With 18 months of lead time, you will be able to consider your decision carefully.

Learn more and register at http://amazonfctours.com/.


Please note that this is a tour of the Amazon shipping facility, not a South American river cruise along a waterway with the same name. :)

Here's a speed comparison using CrystalDiskMark between an older OCZ Vertex 4 SSD and the new Samsung 950 PRO 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2. You can see that there is a substantial speed increase with the PCIe interface.

General Discussion / Speed..... of a Samsung 950 PRO 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2
« Last post by Alan Raul on February 29, 2016, 12:08:51 PM »
I have been benchmarking my new Samsung 950 PRO 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 SSD and have some results. It's about 5 to 6 times faster as an older SSD connected to a SATA port depending on the age of your older SSD. This is the same drive Ralph uses in his Dell computer.
