What is a “Dashboard” ?

February 9, 2016

Dashboard (also called dash, instrument panel, or fascia) – A control panel placed in front of the driver of an automobile, housing instrumentation and controls for operation of the vehicle.

The word originally applied to a barrier of wood or leather fixed at the front of a horse-drawn carriage or sleigh to protect the driver from mud or other debris “dashed up” (thrown up) by the horses’ hooves.

How Long Does It Take To Collect A Reward Or Cash Out: With such low cash threshold per-survey. It will be a long time till you’ll reach the needed $50 cash out level.

Overall Rating: 2.5 out of 5 – With plenty of surveys to complete and with and a of $50 cash out level. You’ll be more frustrated then happy that you joined this survey site.

February 6, 2016

FoxClocks (4.2.1)

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – This add-on does take some exploration. But once it is setup the way you want it. You can pretty much leave it alone and your good to go.

B. Security: N/A – No security risk at all

C. Usefulness: 5/5 – Super useful, I found it keeps me aware of the world around me. And all of it’s different time zones.

D. FireFox Slowdown: None

E. Computer Slow Down: None

F. What Type Of User Would I Recommend To Use This Add-On: Any level of Firefox user could benefit from this add-on. That goes double for anyone dealing with friends or family in any number of different time zones.

ImTranslator (8.36) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

February 6, 2016

ImTranslator (8.36)

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – A very easy and straight forward add-on, but there are still some settings that can get a bit tedious to newer Firefox users.

B. Security: Not Applicable To This Add-on

C. Usefulness: 4/5 – Both my life as a member of the (CSW) team and my life on the net would be a lot harder without this add-on. If you ever wondered how to say something in another language, or even if you just ran into a site and or blog that is not in your own native tongue / language.

D. FireFox Slowdown: At times this add-on can really slow down your browser.

E. Computer Slow Down: PC slowdown can occur on the very rare occasion. Often it will occur when you leave this add-on by accident with in your FireFox browser Window, or if you have been in a FireFox session for quite a while. And then you decide you want to translate a large swath of text.

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This Add-on: Any level of Firefox user could benefit from this add-on.

Very Important Firefox Add-on Compatibility Note: The add-on NoScript (NoScript Review Link) will cause this add-on to crash or not work at all. You will need to add  imtranslator.net to your NoScript White list, which can be found in your Firefox add-ons. Go to the NoScript add-on. Highlight it, then go to options. Go to second tab called whitelist then add imtranslator.net. Then press Allow, and you can then close Firefox, and re-load it. Then everything should be all good.

AutoFill Forms (1.0.8) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

February 5, 2016

AutoFill Forms (1.0.8)

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – Getting better with every update. But it takes some getting use to. And short cuts could be way easier to use.

B. Security: (Very Un-secure) – If you don’t mind giving all your key information away. To whom ever is on your computer and decides to load up FireFox.

C. Usefulness: 4/5 – Very very useful if you are tired of always filling out the same online forms over and over again. AutoFill will fill in most online forms with a touch of the pencil icon. But there are still sometimes errors that occur once in a while. But they are by no  means a deal breaker.

D. FireFox Slow Down: None

E. Computer Slow Down: None

F. What Type Of User Would I Recommend To Use This Add-on: Any FireFox user could benefit from this add-on.

EPD 288: Fan Mail Friday’s (02/05/2016)

February 5, 2016

Dear Remy And Matt,

I have been wondering if you guys have a LinkedIn or Google + accounts associated with either the site itself ? or you guys independently ?

Sent In By “LinkedIn Causal Redux

—————————-

Do you guys have a LinkedIn or Google + accounts associated with either the site itself ? or you guys independently ?

—————————-

Remy’s Reply: No, I don’t have a LinkedIn or Google + account. Nor do I plan to get one anytime soon. So sorry to all the guys trying to request I join their network. Also important to note is the lack of a Facebook page for myself or the site. Just thought I would toss that in as I get asked that a lot.

—————————-

Matt’s Reply: I have a LinkedIn account, although I hardly use it, and I also have a Google+ and Facebook Page, but I only use these for my own website, Hybrid Games, as companion social networks, alongside my Twitter and YouTube accounts.
