@pinkballoon, I got them all at once. Use DownThemAll for firefox. It’s an add-on that allows you to select all downloadable files on a web page and download them to a chosen destination on your computer. All you have to do is open up this page in firefox (after installing DownThemAll) and go to menu extra > ‘DownThemAll!..’ . Then you will see quite a long list of files. In the filter either type ‘.zip’ or check the checkbox ‘archives’. All zit files will be selected. Specify your download location and hit download. 5 minutes later, voila! all the fonts on this page.

Beleive me, uzipping was more work for me than downloading :)

Kevin on Performance Boost: Move Page File to Another Physical Drive, 2008/11/03 at 2:04 AM

There is no way that putting the pagefile on the same hard drive as windows but in a different partition will make any difference.
ALL it will do it cause problems.
IF only one hard drive then pagefile stays on drive C(where windows is).
IF on the same drive but on a partition away from windows then you will cause big problems.
Also NOT having a pagefile will cause problems.
Regardless of whoever said that Windows or programs have NOT needed a pagefile since SP2 then that is NOT so.
Windows has to have a pagefile.
Windows WILL use virtual ram(pagefile)as and when needed.
IF no pagefile then you WILL run out of real memory!!

What is Edraw Max Pro?

Edraw Max Pro is an excellent flow-charting, org-charting, network-diagramming piece of software that is comparible to Microsoft Visio, which retails for $559!

Edraw Max enables students, teachers and business professionals to reliably create and publish kinds of diagrams to represent any ideas. It’s an all-in-one graphics software that makes it simple to create professional-looking flowcharts, organizational charts, network diagrams, business presentations, building plans, mind maps, fashion designs, UML diagrams, workflows, program structures, web design diagrams, electrical engineering diagrams, directional maps, database diagrams and more.

In trying to cover more than the features page shares, I am failing: this software is great and easy to use. If you don’t want to shell out over $500 for Visio, this IS the software for you.

I want a Copy

Simply post a helpful comment on this site, anywhere, on any article. The ten most helpful commenters will win a licensed copy of Edraw Max Pro on November 17, 2008.

You can also download a trial version from the vendor’s homepage.
