Double Driver Makes Backing Up & Restoring Your Drivers Easier Than Ever [Windows]

Your drivers can be a scary and intimidating thing. The two pieces of the Windows backend that I never recommend the novice user play with are the registry and device drivers. The smallest of errors in handling either of these can result in system instability or a completely bricked operating system, and that’s no fun. As you become a more experienced, savvy, and paranoid citizen of the Internet, you’ll grow accustomed to religiously backing up your system and online data.

7 Online Resources To Help Those Who Are Depressed & Suicidal

Even though I am the Managing Editor of MakeUseOf, I have a huge disability in my life which is clinical depression. It started back in 2002, as a depression related to stress in my job, and it exploded in 2003 resulting in a huge mental breakdown and full blown suicidal clinical depression. It was a very dark period in my life back then, and I wouldn’t have wished those symptoms and feelings on my worst enemies.

Quickly Copy Symbols To The Clipboard With Symbol Caddy [Mac]

Quickly find and copy obscure symbols, then post them into any program. Symbol Caddy is among those long-forgotten class of Mac apps – the dashboard widget. Which is a shame, because it’s a widget that is sincerely useful. Imagine you’re writing about currencies, and need to compare the dollar ($) to the euro (€), and as such need quick access to both symbols. If you’re American, where do you find the euro symbol?
