Comment on Schedule a Steam Download by nars bars

I have found that I have to leave Steam running as starting it up does not seem to work. I had a hard time working with the Steam urls as they are not standard .lnk files. I found Which converts Url shortcuts to lnk shortcuts which you can then do "properties" on and and copy and paste into the argument section of the Task Scheduler. I set the download to start my time at 12:02 am and the PC to shut down at 4:58 am my time and it works really well.After you get all your games it is a good idea to go on line and verify local files in Steam because large downloads and paused and restarted downloads can have corruption that only takes a few minutes to fix.

Comment on Broadband data caps in New Zealand by carpentaro

Hey, I just gave my wife an iPad2 for mothers day. Go figure, two days after motheres day, we'd maxed out our 60gb plan. I guess you can't use an iPad the way it was meant to be used in NZ. We went to Oz for Christmas this last year. I got a sim card for my smartphone [LGp970]. I was sooo used to turning off all of the features [defeates the purpose of a smart phone] and was surprised to find out that with the affordable plans in Oz, I could actually use my phone the way it was meant to be used. NZ is sooo far behind, to tight fisted, and losing ground by the day. Only people who've left AND come back realy know how far behind it is here. Most that go don't come back, to the tune of 50,000/year.

Comment on I’ll stick with Google Maps thanks by andykiwibest

I like your comparison Chris. I have upgraded this morning and yes the app is in its infancy. Interesting that the directions part of the app relates to Tom Tom database. Apple will be putting a lot of effort into finessing this app not to get bad too much bad press so I'm certain it will get several upgrades in the near future. Just integrating all the new stuff into the iOS6 was their initial goal. As it stands, Google winds hands, feet and wheels down.

I'm sorry, but the Countdown app is rubbish. Perhaps if you have a high-end phone its useful, but generally it's far too slow, wastes half the screen in its interface and the barcode reader doesn't work for me.

Great list Chris, probably my favourite app is AudioManager, which gives quick access to audio profiles, and also applies profiles automatically, e.g. muting alerts at night and unmuting again in the morning. I also love Wunderlist, and QuickPic is a great alternative image manager to the stock gallery app.

Comment on Photo faceoff: Flickr vs. Picasa by Really Useful Bicycle Journeys

Sun, 24 Jun 2012 20:22:23 +0000

Hi, I had also been deciding on which service to go with for, for my Wordpress blog. Had started with Picasa. Once I had worked out eventually how to add a slideshow into a blog! Then looked at Flickr, as other bicycle adventurists seemed to be focused that way. Perhaps also due to the community? I had exactly the same upload (original) on both, and Flickr is by far the better image quality. I also like the slideshow with Flickr (lightroom). Embedding slideshow on blog with Flickr is far easier, and does look pretty good too. $44 for two years is pretty good for what you get. So Flickr Pro it is then. Image quality was the deciding factor for me. Thank you for a great insight into the two services. Regards, Nigel

The time for the task to run is set in the Task Scheduler under the "Triggers" tab in Windows Vista/7 and under the "Schedule" tab in XP.
