After all, YouTube is chock full of instructional videos - and lots of people are making a lot of money and being garnered with comments like "You're a life-saver, thank you!" and "I love this video, it's perfect - it showed me exactly what to do and where I might encounter problems, without having...

double clicking the settings file will work but ONLY if your xplorer2 isn't running
I had forgotten that X2 must be closed. What harm is done by double clicking the settings if X2 is running ?.

Re: Transfer window hangs when copying data to external drive

I reinstalled the latest version of X2 and all is working as advertised, no issues with the transfer window if destination drive is full. Nikos a suggestion, The "Import Settings" is a bit unintuitive, I forgot that one has to highlight the settings file first before clicking on "Import Settings", w...

Transfer window hangs when copying data to external drive

If the external memory drive doesn't have sufficient space for the data and a copy is initiated, X2's transfer window opens and freezes at initiation of copy, force closing the application is the only way to unfreeze it. (no messages are displayed). If I initiate a copy to the same external drive wi...

Re: blog: artificial intelligence primer

artificial intelligence is scheduled to take over jobs/humanity for the last 50 years now, but we're still in for a long wait! Wrong, you fall into the "Oh just train them for something else" group. Their was a limit to human displacement due to pure mechanical mechanisation, but the advent of soft...

Re: blog: artificial intelligence primer

First one has to define intelligence. My definition of Intelligence is anything that can read Shakespeare and understand it, or anything that can write Shakespearean type novels. In the short term AI machines will replace humans at any service orientated work, menial tasks. Bang, there goes your min...

Re: blog: to bitcoin or not to bitcoin?

it wouldn't hurt to do a little hedge based on the stoopidity of the masses to push crypto prices even higher. To hedge you must have a underlying asset to hedge against, what exactly are you hedging against?, you can Long or Short something then hedge that bet with a appropriate option, that's wha...

Re: blog: to bitcoin or not to bitcoin?

There is no doubt that crypto currencies WILL prevail and wars will be waged over which crypto currency will be the worlds reserve currency, that is the crux, heart and soul of the problem, Dollar Dude is desperate to have his version of "crypto" assume the mantel of the worlds reserve currency that...

Re: blog: mass rename ebooks

Does this edit the book's metadata or just the filename ?. Many ereaders parse the book's metadata for information hence it would be pointless/hacky to only change the filename. Similarly with mp3's its pointless to change the filename only as the metadata has the information which is parsed by the ...
