    anyone have GoPro tips or advice. I think I got the underwater settings OK, but can not get audio set with underwater (waterproof) casing so that you can hear on land. Going to Puerto Rico soon zip-lining and want to use waterproof casing (as it is a rain forest) to record the zips. Who would use head mount or chest mount? I use wrist mount underwater. Has anyone tried red filter for SCUBA diving or deeper free diving? Anyone found a red filter that is easily mounted and removed over lens? Thanks!

    16 Apr 2014 | 11:47 am
    Hey Geeks, Chris set up this resource several years ago because Chris wanted to create an environment outside of WordPress where we might be able to connect with one another and share ideas. Years later, Chris has discovered that countless pieces of copyrighted material had been lifted from across the Internet and planted on this site. This has created problems for our entire business model. Plus, Ning decided to jack up the hosting rates to the point where Chris could no longer justify paying premiums for what little revenue was coming in.

Has a lot of functions for it's tiny size, including scans and saving as PDF and many other types of image formats. (w00t!)

If you wish to make it your default picture viewer/editor, right click a jpeg or any other picture format, then click "open with" and navigate to the folder and click on FreeVimager.exe.

  • Review: The Martian

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    Andy Weir’s first novel, The Martian, has gotten a lot of attention lately, mostly because it’s nerve-wrackingly realistic. It’s about a man living in an environment that’s trying to kill him every second of his existence. And that’s on the good days, when his own mistakes don’t make things worse. It’s very well-written, and it’s not a fluffy, easy read. It shows what a human would have to do to survive on the surface of Mars for years, when his air and food were only meant to last months. There’s a lot of math involved. I saw a few eyes…

    11 Feb 2014 | 9:30 am
    (Guest post by Gordon Daugherty. If you like this, go see his Shockwave Innovations blog)Anyone that has taken an accounting class or learned basic business financials knows the interaction between key elements of a P&L (revenue, cost, expense) and a balance sheet (assets, liabilities, equity). But it’s surprising to me how many companies with recurring/subscription revenue don’t understand the interactions between the elements that make up customer acquisition cost (CAC), churn and lifetime value (LTV). There are other important operational metrics to help steer your company…

    It’s dungeons and traps, Cliffs and grenades. The wide world of Video Games has all of that and more. There always seems to be a puzzle to solve, a secret to find or an evil menace to conquer.

    Guest Post
    12 Mar 2014 | 7:28 pm
    The first Academy Awards took place during a simple banquet held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in May 1929. Douglas Fairbanks was the Academy president and, after all the speeches had ended, he handed out the Oscars to the winners. Because the winners had already been announced some three months earlier, everyone knew the outcome. During that first ceremony, fifteen Oscar statuettes were awarded for “cinematic achievements” of 1927 and 1928. Emil Jannings was the first ever Best Actor winner. Because he had to return to Europe before the ceremony was held, his Oscar was the…

    Everyone has at least heard of a scavenger hunt; most have even participated in at least one.  What if a scavenger hunt added a fun theme and instead of finding objects, you had to find answers to riddles and puzzles?  Such an experience exists!  Commonly called a “puzzle hunt,” this activity is a great experience for those who enjoy mental thrills. Escape from the Haunted Ship is the second Los Angeles experience from the Real Escape Game company, and after experiencing it, this author is kicking himself for not signing up for the first one.  Real Escape Game is relatively…

The most unique thing about the Haunted Hayride is its setting.  It’s entirely outdoors–a real hayride pulled by tractors that takes a 25-minute journey around the defunct Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park.  The wide open spaces give the creators ample freedom to create some of the most elaborate sets and scenery I’ve ever seen for a seasonal…

  • A Risk Managed Approach To Protective Monitoring

    28 Mar 2014 | 11:17 am
    As organisations start to quantify the threats to their networks, data and assets, protective monitoring is becoming a commonly used buzz word as the saviour in the cyber arms race. Many organisations now fear that without these controls, their networks simply aren’t secure enough to function without the imminent threat of compromise, resulting in potentially catastrophic events. With cyber security newsfeeds reporting a regular occurrence of data breaches, Government snooping and the continuous threat of fines from the Information Commissioners Office, protective monitoring is an area that…

    There are so many different types of beer all over the world. Thousands of bottles and glasses are enjoyed by people every day all year round.

    Community part 1 of 2 finale. Yesh, yesh y’all. On it goes. I don’t know, something about them making Greendale so great that it gets sold by the owners to Subway. And treasure or some shit. The only entertaining part is pretty much just Abed running from the story, breaking the fourth wall. It’s still entertaining, but the formula is very tired at this point. The episode ends with Jeff and Britta deciding to get married. Really? A wedding? Guys, just… why Community, why? Is it Good? Just could not give a fuck what happens to this show. Everyone on the show is funny,…

  • Latest X-Men Trailer. Wolverine, Sentinels, Magneto…Oh My!

    David Lawyer
    16 Apr 2014 | 3:17 pm
    New X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer released today gives us even better looks at the sentinel force in full attack mode, Wolverine’s challenge at convincing a young Xavier of his mission and Magneto, as powerful as you have ever seen him. New X-Men Trailer for Days of Future Past: My only worry with the culmination of this trailer and the several others that we have already seen is that we are perhaps seeing TOO MUCH. I am never one to ask for a ‘cease and desist’ when it comes to revealing images and video of upcoming blockbuster films like X-Men and others, but in this…

    When did the Marvel speedster Quicksilver get so damn popular? If you haven’t heard or didn’t know, Quicksilver will be appearing this Summer in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past and ALSO in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. The ‘GOTCHA’ is the fact that we will be seeing TWO DIFFERENT interpretations of Quicksilver, since one will be appearing in a Twentieth Century Fox production (X-Men) and the other in a Marvel/Disney production (Avengers). Dumb. ** Spolier ** News outlets have made it clear that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch WILL be in next…

  • Reign 1×18 Review: No Exit

    Sarah Sue
    19 Apr 2014 | 9:48 am
    The honeymoon period is officially over.  Mary and Francis clashed in a big way this week, just as I feared would happen.  Henry’s grip on reality loosened even more during this episode, which makes me question how long he has before someone outside of the court discovers just how unstable he is.  Catherine and Kenna teamed up in an unlikely alliance to dethrone Penelope, and Lola wondered about the ghosts in her new husband’s past.  We haven’t a moment to lose, so let’s jump into my review for “No Exit”! Damn it, Reign writers!  Do not do this to me or to Lola!  My…
  • Naruto x 673 Review: We Will…!!!

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:54 pm
    This week’s issue of Naruto was action-packed to say the least! No panels were wasted on flashbacks, Naruto got to show off some of his new powers, and the stage was set for Madara vs. Naruto and Sasuke. So let’s get to it… Remember last week when I predicted Madara regaining his strength, Naruto ending up with the powers of the tailed-beasts, and Sasuke getting the Rinnegan? Well, all of these predictions came true, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m on to you, Kishimoto! Naruto stopped the Eight Gates technique in order for Guy to live. I guess I just have to accept the character…
  • Ms. Marvel #3 Review

    17 Apr 2014 | 10:15 am
    The last time we saw Kamala Khan, she saved a girl from drowning – but she was also confused about her new powers and got grounded by her parents. In this month’s issue she’s still trying to make sense of everything, and I continue to be impressed with this series. G. Willow Wilson is doing an amazing job. In the beginning people may have referred to Kamala’s heritage as a ‘publicity stunt’, but with stereotypes aplenty in our media it’s nice to see a series that’s doing something different. Kamala isn’t another stereotype; she feels real,…
  • Glee 5×16 Review: Tested

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:54 am
    With this week’s episode’s focus on STDs, sex, and relationship problems, it seems that Glee is going for all the hard hitting topics it can since its move to New York. The show has been surprising me for some weeks now – in a good way – and this episode was no different! Artie’s storyline revolved around him testing positive for Chlamydia, and telling all of his sexual partners about it. I was surprised to find out that Artie was dating two girls at once and going for a third, Julie. Not only that, it was revealed that he didn’t use a condom when he was with the…

  • 3 Types of Android

    16 Apr 2014 | 2:30 am
    Recently I haven’t been satisfied with phones, I feel like phones have been trying to sell a gimmick and not the phone. So I dug deep in my pockets and bought 3 types of Android phones the Samsung Galaxy, S5, HTC One (M8), and the Nexus 5. The reason why I named this article “3 Types of Android” is because of TouchWiz, HTC Sense, and Stock Android. Since I’m not much of a reviewer, I’m going to explain why I’m not satisfied with the three starting with Samsung Galaxy S5. The S5 is beautiful with bright vivid colors, great camera, great OS and before I start let me say that Samsung…

  • Noah Movie Review

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:30 am
    Noah and the Master of the UniverseIf you haven´t yet read the story of Noah, it can be found in Genesis 5:32 – 10:1. It´s a rather short read, which should clue you in as to how much artistic liberty has been taken to fill a 2 hour-plus mega film. This takes turning a 310-page Hobbit adventure into three separate overly long films, filled with extra scenes and characters, and turns the intensity up to 11! Remember how angry some hardcore Tolkien fans were by Peter Jackson´s interpretation of the story? Well, if you´re the type of hardcore religious person who doesn´t take well to…
