Conversion from old software to new

My friend and I compiled a book of the history of our town using PS 2. We have approximately 257 pages of pictures and history that we don't want to lose. We cannot load PS 2 on our new computers because they will not take floppy disks. Is there any software that we can get to convert the PS 2 to a later version? We both have PS 23 already installed on our computers. We are open to suggestions, help, whatever you can do for us. Thank you. teacher30@copper.net

    my suggestion based on what you have stated above, is to buy a protable disk drive with USB connector. that should give you access to the floppy disks.

Are the letter PS stand for PhotoShop or PrintShop? I guess they stand for PrintShop, which is a amateur page layout program. The file format for this kind of programs is proprietary, which means, you cannot safely convert to another format, like in industry standard programs. If you have the program installed, I may suggest three paths:
1) Copy the pages ONE by ONE and paste in another program like MS Publisher, Adobe PageMaker, Quark, InDesign.
2) Convert the whole document to PDF, using one of several free utilities available on the internet. PDF is the de facto standard, and can be read in ANY computer, regardless of the operating system.
Once in PDF format, it can be transferable to any other page layout program.
3) If the program has the capability of saving the book in HTML format (the one used by web pages) you can save in this format to further work in any page layout program.

How can I delete my old gmail history without deleting one by one


  1. Open Gmail.
  2. Find the group of messages you want to delete. You can find messages by searching or by selecting all messages with a certain label.
  3. Select messages using the checkbox in the toolbar above your messages. This selects all messages that are currently visible on the page.
  4. Directly above your messages, you should see a sentence similar to this: "All 20 conversations on this page are selected. Select all conversations that match this search."
    Use the "Select all conversations" link to select the rest of the messages if you'd like to delete all the messages at once rather than one page at a time.
  5. If you're confident you won't need these messages in the future, click the Trash icon

Psion Revo replacement restore


What do you do if you no longer have access to a Psion, but need to access some data from an old Psion backup on your PC? Native Psion files can't be read on a PC, but fortunately, there are some solutions:
  • Use the PsiWin PC connectivity suite to convert the Psion-format files to a format that can be read on the PC.
  • Download and install the Psion ER5 emulator - this gives you a Psion machine on your PC, and will allow you to access your old data on a PC - See our emulator setup page. From the emulator, you may be able to print or export your data to a text file, or use a third -party Psion converter
  • Consider borrowing or buying an old Psion machine, loading the files onto the Psion, then printing the documents or data as a text file
  • Find another friendly Psion user that may be able to convert the file into a format that can be read by a PC for you. If you don't know of another user, try asking for help in our Psion forum
also
Data conversion for the Psion can be quite complicated, due to the file formats used by Psion / Symbian. You should find that the PsiWin program supplied on CD with your Psion machine can help you with most of your conversion needs. If your PC is connected to your Psion, dragging files from "My Psion" to the PC should prompt you to convert to a PC format, otherwise you can convert files that are stored on the PC, using the Psion File Converter. This program is installed with PsiWin and is located in c:\program files\Psion\PsiWin - the application filename is Cpycnv.exe
psiwinconv.jpg For more help on file conversion, see our dedicated conversion page.
Agenda and Contacts databases: Note that these can't be converted using the Psion File Converter - PsiWin supports synchronisation of these files, but not direct conversion. See our suggestions in our Backup FAQ. The most common solution is to load up the files in the Psion Emulator, and either use Print to save the data as a plain text file, or use a Psion-based converter, as detailed on our Conversion page

Whats the chances of getting a wiring diagrahm for a sportsman 570 2015


A good friend of mine always goes to the local library where they have books full of automotive wiring diagrams. They also have a copier which prints oversize pages. I can't guarantee that your local library is the same but it's worth a visit.
PS Mostly I keep mine in a magazine rack in the living room. It's a great conversation piece if your visitors are into that sort of thing.

Facebook log in


The newer account login page is appearing because it's what you used most recently. Just change the login email address and/or password to that of the previous account, and you'll log in using the old account. You can also clear out your browser history and cache so that no login information appears.

Your two accounts are completely different and would in no way have the same friend (or other) information unless the same people have become friends with you in both accounts. Also, people add and remove friends all of the time.

If you have any facebook related issues, you should try to contact facebook or use their help and FAQ pages.

I cant get all my contacts on whatsapp. i cant send a to anyone new.. if the person has msged me on whatsapp i can continue mailing them. it hasnt imported all my contacts from the phone book..


Usually you would have to close the app by double the home button, touch and hold the whatsapp app and touch on the minus sign to close it.
After that, reopen the app again and you new contact should appear in your favourites.
