EasyOffice Downloading Issues

“The contents of this file cannot be unpacked … has been corrupted…
Download problem?

If you see an error message such as the one above when you run EasyOffice.exe, then there was a faulty download. (Indeed, in such a case, if you check the file size of the easyoffice.exe file you actually downloaded, it will probably be much smaller than the file on our web site.) If you prefer an Microsoft Office, you can use a to get the price down.
Tip:
Use a self-recovering download utility to download large files. Click here to obtain Smart Download Utility.

Note:
Smart Download Utility is provided by Netscape, but you do NOT need to be running Netscape or even have Netscape, in order to use it. It will work perfectly with Microsoft Internet Explorer.

“Some programs don’t work, but instead give an error message that a file (eg. shell32.dll) is missing.”

EasyOffice needs a full version of Internet Explorer 5 (or higher).

, and needs a full version of Windows® that includes Internet Explorer 5 (or higher) and active desktop.  If you install EasyOffice from the CD-ROM, these components of Windows® will automatically be installed (if you agree to the prompt).

Possible reasons why Internet Explorer is not present on your computer:

Downloaded a version of EasyOffice to a computer that did not contain Internet Explorer 5+ or active desktop.
Installed from the EasyOffice CD-ROM but responded “not  to install Internet Explorer”.
Subsequently removed Internet Explorer of active desktop.
To correct this problem:

1. Uninstall EasyOffice (go to Control Panel -> Add/remove programs)
2. Install the full version of Internet Explorer 5+, by doing either of the following:

Put your EasyOffice CD-ROM back into your computer and follow the install prompts
or click here to download Internet Explorer 6 from the Microsoft® web-site
3. Install EasyOffice again (if you put the EasyOffice CD-ROM back in the computer, then it was automatically installed in Step 2).

“I have a copy of Internet Explorer 5 installed already on my computer, yet I get a message from EasyOffice telling me I need to install Internet Explorer 5 or higher. Why?”

You probably do not have a full set of Internet Explorer 5 files. Some may be older versions. Go to EasyHelper and see what version of shell32.dll you have, for example.

This issue may also arise in some cases of non-English Windows and Internet Explorer.

In many cases, installing a full Internet Explorer 5 (eg, from a Microsoft  CD-ROM or from the EasyOffice CD-ROM) seems to solve the problem. In a small percentage of other cases, in some configurations of early versions of Windows95, this problem occurs, and is solved by update to an updated version of Windows95 (ie, Windows95B or C), if this is possible in your case.

“I just downloaded a freeware copy of EasyOffice (or obtained a copy from a shareware CD-ROM). It is asking for a UserID or Serial Number or Password. What is it?

At present we don’t require any UserID for EasyOffice Freeware. If you are being asked a UserID then you may have downloaded a very old version of EasyOffice (the two UserIDs we used in the past for such versions were “free” and “demo”), or else, the company or magazine that assembled EasyOffice Freeware among other programs on the CD-ROM it gave you, put in a password. We do not have access to this password.

Suggestion: If you can’t obtain the necessary password, you can go to our downloads page and download EasyOffice Freeware :

“I want to download the full CD-ROM (700MB) but I can’t find the download listing.”

At the present time, there is no download listing to download the full CD-ROM.

At this point in time the cost and difficulty of downloading 700MB files does not make it a feasible service to offer on our website. However, as bandwidth available to the public keeps on increasing, as users become more accustomed to downloading very large files (eg, using download utilities such as Smart Download Utility ) and as bandwidth costs keep falling, these factors will make offering a full CD-ROM download feasible, and we hope to do so at some point in the future.

At the present time, if you want the full CD-ROM you must purchase it. Note that we have discounted prices for the CD-ROM for users that already have UserIDs, as well we offer a full CD-ROM, UserID, and worldwide airmail shipping package at very favorable terms. Please see Purchase Page for more details.

Editors experience with SBC DSL

I have had SBC DSL for 3 years. However, I ordered SBC before they joined together with Yahoo. When the notice came to upgrade to SBC Yahoo, I pretty much just ignored it and tried to stick with plain old SBC DSL which is, what I believe I still have now.

I have rarely had any problems with this service and will continue to use it. However I did not change to ‘yahoo-sbc’ dsl.

Yahoo and SBC have now joined with AT&T to bring DSL, and who knows what this new partnership will bring?

It is also convenient to pay SBC bill online and to have 1 bill cover your phone and DSL services.

Dye Assault Matrix – Top Marker of 2015

After playing paintball for so many years now I would have to say that it is definitely more fun when you have good equipment. Playing with a rental gun and mask just puts you behind all the other players in terms of gear and makes it so you have to play that much better to win. Now if you had the best paintball gear possible you would be able to destroy your opponents on the field and of course you would have way more fun. The first step to getting the is to get the best paintball gun and that would have to be the Dye Assault Matrix. This paintball marker is just in a whole league of its own and will definitely make you a player to be feared on the field.

Best Paintball Gun – Dye Assault Matrix


What really makes this paintball gun so powerful is the fact it can shoot both regular and First Strike paintballs by use of a 10-20 round magazine. The way First Strike paintballs work is they are made out of a thicker material and are also shaped so that they are shot like a real bullet. This allows them to shoot up to 50 percent further than a normal paintball which gives you a big advantage on the field. The barrel that comes with this marker works perfect with these specialty paintballs as well so an upgrade isn’t even needed. You should be warned though they are pretty expensive and can cost you around forty dollars for a 100 rounds.

What’s so cool about the Dye Assault Matrix is the fact it is basically a high-end tourney marker that is put in a woodsball body. This allows you to shoot fast and quietly like a speedball player but have all the cool gizmos like a stock, rails, and an offset hopper. This allows you to be far more accurate than a speedball player with your first couple shots and everyone knows the first couple shots are the most important. With the rails you can even add a red dot or other cool upgrades like a flashlight or rocket launcher which is definitely useful for scenario games. Since this marker is electronic you can choose between semi, three round burst, and full auto as well as having the option to set your own firing modes. You will also be happy to know that the Assault Matrix can shoot up to 25 balls per second which is faster than you would ever need.

The first time you ever hold this marker I’m sure you will instantly fall in love. Besides just looking extremely cool like it came straight out a video games it also has a good feel to it as well. The DAM just feels right in your hands and with the stock you can aim it effortlessly. Even the trigger on this marker has a good feel to it much like a real competition rifle. The wide face on the trigger as well as the perfect pull tension is just one more feature that puts it above the rest. There is no doubt that this is the best paintball gun on the market for woodsball players and I’m not sure if anything will be able to take its place for some time.

Best Review of the Tippmann 98 Custom

If you are new to playing the game of woodsball then you probably don’t want to go out and buy the most expensive paintball gun to start with. It’s best to start with a beginner paintball marker that you can upgrade over time to make sure you will really stick to the game. When it comes to beginner paintball guns it doesn’t get much better than the 98 Custom. This is probably the most wide used paintball marker on the market today and for good reason, it’s cheap, reliable, and heavily customizable which is basically everything that a beginner to the game wants. So without wasting any more time lets jump straight into the review.

Tippmann 98 Custom Review

If you’ve been playing paintball for a little while now you’ve probably come to realize that a lot of paintball guns tend to break a lot. This can get very annoying due to the fact that you have to constantly repair your marker as well as miss out on fun paintball games. What makes the 98 Custom so popular though besides its price is both its reliability and the fact it’s so customizable.

Reliability

This paintball marker can handle pretty much anything you put it through whether it be rain, dirt, or even falling onto the ground, this marker will still continue to work. This is extremely crucial for woodsball players due to the fact that you never know what will come your way while you’re out in the woods in the middle of a game.

Customizable

The problem with buying a cheap paintball marker though is the fact that eventually you will want something better. Now instead of having to buy one paintball marker and then going out and buy another one half a year later, it’s smarter just to buy a gun that you can easily upgrade to become even better. The Tippmann has probably more upgrades than any other marker on the market today and can easily go from a beginner paintball gun to a professional. You can make the gun shoot faster by buying a cyclone feed hopper as well as a response trigger or e-grip. For more accuracy you can buy a better barrel, a red dot that fits dovetail rails, and a stock to give you a more stable shot. By upgrading the internals of the marker you can shoot more efficiently and get a more consistent shot which will lead to more eliminations on the field.

tippmann 98 custom review

Another cool aspect about Tippmann markers is the fact you can make it look realistic by buying mil-sim upgrades to make it look like any real gun that you want. While this does add a little bit of weight to your marker which will decrease performance on the field but if you’re playing for fun then that shouldn’t be an issue. Overall the 98 Custom is a great paintball marker and if you don’t believe me just read the Tippmann 98 Custom reviews and see for yourself. Remember to always have fun playing the great game of paintball and I’m sure this marker will make it even more fun.

Simple Tips for Woodsball Players

Even though I get paid to play speedsball my true love will always be with woodsball. The games are just more meant for fun and the gap in skill level of the players is huge which makes it possible for a lot of easy eliminations. Now if you’re new to woodsball it can get a but frustrating at times if you’re constantly being eliminated from the game, but with these you will be the one getting the eliminations in no time.

woodsball tips

So if you’re wanting to be the next big thing at your local field or the guy who leads their team to victory at scenarios then start practicing and following these simple tips below.

  • Communicate with your team, so many players try to win the game by themselves but remember two guns are always better than one.
  • Only shoot when you can get an elimination, a lot of players shoot too early and miss their chance at an easy elimination.
  • Practice laning, laning is simply shooting a stream of paint at one spot where you know your enemy will walk directly into it.
  • Remain perfectly still when you know someone is looking your way, you would be surprised how many times I’ve been out in the open and the enemy didn’t even notice me because I was standing perfectly still.
  • Master a position, while there isn’t necessarily positions in woodsball, it is important to master a certain play style and to get the gear to match. Some players might choose to be a sniper with a very quiet and accurate paintball marker, while another player can just have the job of laying down paint with a .

Now this is only scratching the surface of tips when it comes to playing woodsball, but start with these simple tips and you will be sure to become a much better player. Stick around for more tips in the future and you can also always watch videos online to help out as well.
