I don’t know about you but I don’t mind having a bit of a look at those “one-bargain-a-day” websites just to see what deal they’re offering. The problem is that I have to remember the name of the websites, punch them into Firefox and go and check them.
Now this might sound stupid, but I don’t always have time to do it so I thought, what about a tool that did all that for me: went to the websites, found the latest “deal of the day” and then brought it More >
In case you’ve been trying to encode VOB files with DVD-HD 2009 and finding that the encoding tool hits 100% but keeps on encoding, here’s a quick rundown on what’s happening:

How to fix it
In the short term, there’s no immediate fix and it seems to only happen with some files. With these files, I’ll need to add in the option to More >
With the few seconds I get spare these days, I’ve cobbled together a CD/DVD copying tool called Rip & Burn.

It was written in an old programming language though that was well and truly past More >
It’s been a while but I’m in the process of updating my VistaAeroSwitch tool that’s getting a run on most download sites around the world.
Just to recap, VistaAeroSwitch allows you to toggle on and off the Aero interface by just using the <Windows> and <A> keys. There’s no need to make any changes elsewhere in Windows as VistaAeroSwitch does the lot automatically.
The new version will be updated to support the latest graphics cards including the Radeon HD 4870 X2 and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 200-series.
It’ll live in More >
The most common problem we get from readers using our UserOS operating systems is not being able to burn the ISO image to disc properly.
That’s great – because it’s easily fixed.
When burning an ISO image, you can’t use the normal “burn data disc” option in your burning software. You have to use an option that allows specific burning of an ISO image to disc.
If your burning tool won’t do that, have a crack at ISOtorch – this is a brand-new free tool I’ve written specifically for this task. More >
