    GiveAway: Humble Bundle Conquer Covid-19 ( Games, Book, Softwares etc. )

    Thank you @red dragon - will definitely take a look. Some of the audio tools are unknown to me, but will check them out. I'd bought Hitfilm earlier, and thought this might be a good way to get royalty free background scores for any videos. PS : Thank you for your efforts trying to save lives.

    Thank you for the giveaway. I downloaded the Music Maker. I think the games were all taken super-fast!

    Beware: Avast and AVG are officially snoopware!

    Kerio was a simple firewall, and one of the best, till it stopped being supported. It didn't 'send data home'. Comodo is much more in-depth, and you're right, I don't know that it doesn't siphon data. However, it does allow me to stop any application dialling out (including steam games, or any...

    Beware: Avast and AVG are officially snoopware!

    Comodo Personal Firewall has been working great for me for years (used to use Kerio Personal Firewall earlier). It also has HIPS blocking and alerts and an antivirus. However, I use the firewall as it has a lot of granular control per application, and prefer to use the Windows Antivirus which...

    Spotify India launched

    Amazon Music has a huge amount of content, especially the genres (classical, oldies etc.) that I listen to. The list is very exhaustive. For the price of Prime, you get both video and music - it's actually very reasonable.

    Deskjet/Inkjet printer for around 10K or less

    Look for the Epson L models on a budget - they should be about 8-10K . Ink Tank is definitely recommended as you don't need to replace cartridges. With 35ish sheets per month, you'll go over a year without refilling (unless it's a full color picture you're printing every time). Just remember...

    What watch are you wearing today???

    Some of them, especially the older "Euro" models were really good. While the designs were 'inspired', the watches were very well made. Can't say the same of the recent (~5 years) launches.

    Best Video Editor

    Fairly recently (4 months ago or so). I'm not saying the software didn't work. Just that the workflow was quite convoluted, a couple of software kept crashing/hanging. Titling was good in one, but quite a mind boggling experience in another, another example could be applying a default time and...

    Best Video Editor

    I needed a basic video editor for some home videos etc. None of the free video editing software worked either properly or easily for me. One of the drawbacks of Open source I guess. I tried Shotcut, Openshot, KDENLive, Lightworks and VSDC Video Editor. Titling wasn't easy, and neither was...

    Any other purchases? I purchased Hollow Knight, Dishonored, The Cave and the Trine bundle. Hollow knight was on my list for a while and it is a beautiful game. If people haven't played Ori and the Blind Forest, it is a very beautiful puzzle platformer for a low cost. Mass Effect 1 and 2 are...

    Good lasting Perfumes suggestions

    Long lasting /= always good. For most perfumes, the strength comes from the materials, and the dilution strength. Armaf Derby Club house Blanche (white and green) is a very airy green fragrance, and lasts.

    Audio In ear earphone less than 1.5k

    You can replace the cable of the ZST for a low price. If you just need a new headphone, I would recommend the CCA C10 (its a KZ company) - 5 drivers.
  19. A Feedback thread

    Random. Most Chinese sellers mark items as 'gift. If the parcel is heavy enough or seems to be electronics, could be pulled in for Customs duty. I had one headlamp charged 40% just because they didn't know what it was. Smaller items like accessories etc usually get away with no customs, but be...

    Budget 31-40k Acer Swift Ryzen

    No problem. It served as a good test of these capabilities for me as well. I can probably do some video editing and image editing easily with this laptop (somewhat faster than a comparable i5). The SSD - I installed by myself. Be aware it's not an easy process. I had to purchase a SSD caddy...
