Five Things You Need to Know About Digitizing Photos

Five Things You Need to Know About Digitizing Photos | Websites I Found So You Don't Need To | Scoop.it
There is nothing more heartbreaking for us than to talk to a client who has
spent hours and dollars digitizing their photo collection, only to find out
that the files are too small or too low-quality for archival purposes. They
may look fine on Facebook, but when printed in a family history book or
newspaper article, they will look blurry or pixelated. In many cases, the
originals have already been sent back to their original owners or worse,
destroyed, making proper re-scanning impossible.

What Is The Difference Between A Worm, A Trojan & A Virus? [MakeUseOf Explains] | Websites I Found So You Don't Need To | Scoop.it
Some people call any type of malicious software a "computer virus," but that isn't accurate. Viruses, worms, and trojans are different types of malicious software with different behaviors. In particular, they spread themselves in very different ways. Malicious software in general is referred to as "malware." If you want a catch-all term for bad computer software, malware is the word to use.

Free Software We're Most Thankful For

Free Software We're Most Thankful For | Websites I Found So You Don't Need To | Scoop.it
Click to view Dear free software developers: Before we American nerds sit down to our turkey and mashed potatoes today, know that your creations are at the top of the list of things we're most thankful for. Whether you're an indie hacker putting out the occasional script or an employee at a giant internet company building out a webapp with millions of users or a voluntary coder contributing to an open source project, we salute you this Thanksgiving in gratitude for all the things your work enables us to do every day. Short of covering you in candied yam kisses and cranberry sauce hugs, please accept our hearty thanks for your work. We like you. We really, really like you. While our thanks goes out to ALL developers of ALL the free software we've featured on these pages, a few projects deserve special mention. On Monday we asked exactly , and thousands of votes later, we've boiled down the list to the top 40 or so. While we're offline for the day, feast your eyes and mouse on this prodigious list of some of the best free software we're most grateful for. Happy Thanksgiving! (Back to a more regular posting schedule tomorrow.) Mozilla Firefox took first place in this exercise in gratitude with an insanely commanding lead; in fact, Firefox got more than three times the amount of votes the second-place mention (VLC) did. Here's a chart of the top eight on the list so you can see how the votes were spread out relative to one another. About our vote count: We (ok, I) grossly underestimated how many votes we would get on . Almost 800 comments in total—many of which contained more than half a dozen free software projects—made finishing the total count (36 pages of comments) before Thanksgiving 2011 impossible. So, this represents just over 1,100 votes, only one third of the total comments we received. This list of 40 contains all the apps that received 10 or more votes. As almost 200 mentions got only a single vote, we think that even though it's incomplete, it's closely representative of the general consensus. (You can check out our .) Our apologies for the incomplete count—lesson learned. Next time, we'll use a proper survey tool.
