getting to bookmarks in google chrome

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

Is there an easier way to get to my google chrome bookmarks than opening a web page and accessing them through the menu? What I mean is can I get to them without loading a web page first?

Thanks.

Troy

The like button is a toggle.  Pressing it once likes the item.  Pressing it again unlikes the item.

Go to the same place where you liked it, and unlike it the same way.

Keith,

The “Like” button in Facebook is a toggle button..With one tap you have selected that you Like the post..If you tap the “Like” button once again you will deselect that you Like the post.

I don't know but if you use your computer the way most people do, I doubt you would benefit to any extent from the faster speed, although that doesn't justify the misrepresentation.

hi Marie.
most of the systems now a days come with a turbo boost enabled cpu.
turbo boost is when the cpu increases the clock speed to up to 10%
when it is under heavy use of about 90%
so yes. if you are purchasing a system its better to have it.
if you are purchasing a desktop its better to go for a k version of a cpu.
for example 8100k in place of 8100u.
the cpu ending with k is 10% faster than normal cpu.
also if you are purchasing a desktop or a laptop you must take help
and check the bios to see if turbo boost is enabled.
i have seen systems with turbo boost supported cpu but turbo boost
disabled in the bios.
on laptops this is done to give you that little battery savings

Hi Jeff. Yes, actually you are better off not using the disk as it will not be the latest build. Go to:

FYI: Turbo boost?

Geoff Eden <geden1@...>
 

This comes from Intel, although AMD has a similar technology named Turbo Core. Basically, it increases processor speed when expected to work heavy loads provided that the hardware is within operating range in terms of temperature and voltage. Depending on how many processor cores are expected to be busy for a while (from fraction of a second to several minutes), the hardware can increase speed by certain amount – less core active means more speed. For example, a quad-core laptop processor that is set to operate at 2.4 GHz from the factory can be “overclocked” or boosted to 4 GHz if one core will be busy; if all four cores will be busy for a while, all cores will be boosted to say, 3.6 GHz.

The Turbo Boost formula is summarized as follows:

CPU speed + how many cores will be active * speed increase increment

Typically, increment is 100 MHz. For example, you may see a six-core I5 processor listed as:

Frequency: 3.5 GHz

Turbo boost: 6/6/7/8/10/11

Or: Turbo: 4.6 GHz without identifying speed for number of cores boosted.

This means with six cores busy, all processor cores will be boosted from 3.5 GHz to 4.1 GHz; four cores, 4.2 GHz; three cores, 4.3 GHz; two cores, 4.5 GHz; and one core, 4.6 GHz. Processors can sustain increased speed as long as it can tollerate it (temperature and voltage are within operating range).

Re: Turbo boost?

Joseph Lee <joseph.lee22590@...>
 

Hi,
Major correction, actually: K identifies "unlocked" - that is, you can set CPU speed to however you want as long as the motherboard and the CPU can tollerate it; it has nothing to do with CPU speed percentage at all.
For reference, the set of known CPU suffix identifiers are:
* None: desktop
* S (older processors): lower voltage desktop
* T: Ultra-low voltage desktop
* H or M: mobile
* Q (older processors): quad-core mobile
* R (older processors): non-removable desktop with high-end graphics
* U: Ultra-low voltage mobile
* Y: extremely low voltage mobile
* K: unlocked desktop and mobile
* X: extreme desktop (and older extreme mobile processors)
The ones designated "low voltage" (S, T, U, Y) draw less power. These days, desktop processors with no suffixes are equivalent in power draw to S processors.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: need a good accessible captcha solver

Gene
 

I'm not sure if you can use the Webvism from the Webvism web site but there is another one you can probably use if you can't.  You can download it and see instructions for installing it on this page:
 
As far as Firefox goes, if you use an old version of Firefox portable, you can continue to use your current version of Firefox for general browsing and use Firefox portable for sites you want to solve captchas with.  I know the last version you can use with Webvisum is Firefox 52ESR.  You can download the portable version here:
 
Run the installer.  It is a portable version so it won't put anything on your machine but the program.  Open the folder where the program is, and find the exe file.  Press enter and the program will run.  Make a shortcut on the desktop and assign a shortcut key for convenient running.
Probably just typing f once in the folder will take you to the exe file.
Before you use Webvisum, you will have to set up an account on the Webvisum site:
 
At some point, you will have to ask on list for an invitation.  The site isn't monitored by the developer any longer and you can't get an invitation there.

Evan, I think you're mixing apples and oranges! We're dealing with
international business transactions, not local. I own and operate a
business and my company is charged x-percent plus about $0.15 transaction
fee.

Here's an example: I sell you some testrips at $6.75 per box of 50; you pay
my company via Paypal; Paypal charges my company 2.9% off of the dollar
amount, plus another $0.30 transaction fee. In he end, my company doesn't
get $6.75.

In the case cited above, my company will receive $6.35 'cause Paypal will
subtract $0.40 to cover discount rate charges and transaction fee.

Here comes the likes of SquareCardR, StripeR, GoPayments R , and SumUpR!
These ones charge a flat discount rate ranging from 2.65%-2.75% so that my
company will get back more pennies than it would have from Paypal or another
Merchant Account Service Provider. Of course, Master and Visa cards hate
their guts, so do Merchant Account Service Providers because their ability
to MILK MERCHANTS is somewhat curtailed.

The Consumer Finance Protection Act allows businesses to charge these rates
back to the customer. These can either be charged separately or
incorporated into the total cost of a given merchandise. American Express,
Master and Visa cards hate this too. Some airlines will add a surcharge of
extra $40-$50 'cause you're paying with a credit card; you get around this
by using the particular airline's card. However, there's generally an
annual fee of about $90-$95 in most cases.

International business where currency exchange is involved is vastly
different from the scenarios discussed herein. No matter what you do or how
you choose to do it, there will always be a CURRENCY EXCHANGE transaction
fee. Just go to a major bank and try purchasing Euros or Pound Sterling
with CASH-IN-HAND; your socks will be knocked off big time.

If you use your credit/debit card for making purchases outside its
local/national jurisdiction, you will be charged a set transaction fee to
cover the cost of foreign currency exchange.

Ok, I can't think of any better way to explain this rather complex subject.
However, if you're in business for yourself and you have to juggle any of
these, it ought to become a lot more clearer. Just always read the fine
print 'cause failure to do so always gets one in some unsought-for trouble!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
