Convert your downloaded movies and TV shows to DVD

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Just a quick note on something we came across recently and are now using - ConvertXtoDVD from VSO Software. This simple program allows you to convert heaps of formats (AVI, Mpeg, Mpeg4, MP4, AVI, WMV, DV, Divx, Mk) straight to DVD – and automatically creates the title and chapters for you. You can even combine multiple files together in order on the DVD. Its worth buying – no more watching your favourite downloaded TV shows on your computer screen…

Microsoft Office 2007 New File Format – and how to read !

Friday, November 21st, 2008

With the release of Vista Microsoft also released a new version of Office – they add on product that includes word, excel and outlook. Graphically it is very different to the previous versions, but it also includes a new file format that it saves in by default (eg. docx for word – rather than doc). This has caused a few problems for people with the previous versions of Office (2003, 2002/XP ). Microsoft have released a compatibility pack that enables older versions to read and write in the new format to accommodate this issue.Go to the following link from Microsoft – download and run the update, and then you will be able to support the latest file formats! DOWNLOAD HERE
