Chrome failing in foreground, Firefox working in background


















Nice while it lasted


Netflix will no longer work on Chrome for Linux. From version 32, Chrome will not support NPAPI, or the Netscape Plugin, Application Programming Interface. 

Netflix uses Silverlight to stream movies in Windows. Until now the only way to stream movies in Linux with Sliverlight, was to emulate both Windows and Silverlight. In a previous post "How to Stream Netflix Movies on Linux," I wrote about how to stream Netfilx with both Firefox and Chrome. Well, now you can skip over the Chrome part!

Sync your Cloud with CloudHQ

By Tom Ledford | The Practical Computer 



What if you could have two months to backup your Gmail to Microsoft OneDrive, and your SharePoint files to Dropbox, so you could put your BaseCamp files on your Google Drive? You could make sure you had room to backup your Evernote files to OneDrive and around again but asynchronous instead of bisynchronous this time. 

If you could bet a $5 Trifecta, three horse box, full wheel at Keeneland, it would cost you... Nevermind. They'll tell you at the window. Might come in big though!

Please forgive me but, calculating, prestidigitating, and creating a big lead-in graphic, were all sacrificed for the sake of expedience. 

CloudHQ is the eel's hips baby!

At least until your time runs out...
