also, if their "computer" is "dying" it would probably be best to just pull the hard drive and take files off it when it's not booted on that drive.
It could be that their hard drive is starting to get corrupted and throw bad sector errors, in which case, DON'T BOOT THE COMPUTER. Pull the drive and hook it up to a newer, stable computer as a non-booted hard drive and transfer the files to another hard drive.
If the power supply is unstable or the computer is just too slow, you should pull the hard drive.
Have them pull the hard drive and send it to you (well-packed and cushioned) and do the work on it that way. Less headache for you, more secure, better chance of recovering files.

I think join.me is the easiest one I've used. You generate a code on the sharing computer and then give that to the remote user, who enters the code. It then "just works."
Chrome remote desktop will make you log in to chrome with your google account, which, if it's not your computer, sucks because then that chrome installation (for the windows account) will be tied to your account until you logout in chrome (not just logout of google web account).
RDP (built-in) is ok in that most windows computers have it but it is fiddly.

Some things: you need to forward a port on the router, 3389 by default, you can change it if you want. RDP without network level authentication (NLA) is pretty insecure, and I don't think windows below windows 7 have NLA in their RDP server.
To get a secure RDP without windows 7+ then you can tunnel it over SSH. This is probably out of your wheelhouse though, so I'm going to leave it at that.
Over internet, you should be able to just give an internet-facing IP after you forward the port. (go to www.whatismyip.com on the one you're trying to share, or remote login to)

What an odd number. His salary is probably lower, which is bolstered by grants and then the weird 524.01 probably came from something that was categorized as pay.

Honestly all automakers make decent cars now. Save for the penalty boxes, all cars nowadays are built using the most modern manufacturing processes and controls. They can't afford not to. Gone are the days when assembly line workers would hammer misshapen panels to fit.
Ford's cars are all basically designed in Europe now (fusion, fiesta, focus, escape, cmax are all originally Ford Europe's designs). So are Chrysler's, they took Fiat's platforms for their cars. GM's making less drastic moves but their mechanicals are as reliable today as they were years ago (car may have rusted to dust but the engine runs smoothly).
To the OP, I think you should look at some wagons, or even minivans. There was just a user's review on the cmax, basically said it's a fine car but he would've preferred the Passat TDI. http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/2013-ford-c-max-the-not-jalopnik-review-510999801
As an aside, I would go to VW keeping in mind that their electrical systems are notorious for their undiagnosable errors and some of their suspension components such as control arms and joints are weak. Caveat emptor and so forth.
You really need to be looking at something that will hold your whole potential family. So look at wagons and minivans.

Laugh it up, buddy, but with Mad Men reminding us of how men are supposed to dress, things are trending toward better men's fashion.

Guys, this isn't a terrible idea. Men's accessories are going to be a big deal. If Denard decided he would do this would you laugh?
But yeah, Burress has not made the best decisions in his night life, so we can all laugh at that.

My friend works for EA in the Madden division, and he says the only reason why NCAA is profitable for them is because they can use the Madden code base.
I don't think this guy can make a full fledged video game for $1M. Too much programming to do in too little time.

It looks like trey has an extra shoulder joint in his arm. They're chin to chin, Trey's elbow is 3-4" higher than Siva's.
Also, how the hell are you supposed to play defense if this is a foul? Not that I'm still angry about that call.

So you're not recording, say, with a cablecard tuner in a computer, but from your cable company's provided box then to analog, then to digital? Is that to bypass copy protection?

How is it "better quality" than what comes out of a digital tuner? Aren't broadcasts MPEG2? How do you get better quality than what's encoded? Sounds fishy.

If that's a photoshop, it's really good. The ball is slightly distorted from the rolling shutter effect from the CMOS sensor scanning. I bet if you could find out the sensor scan speed you could figure out the trajectory and speed of the ball based on the distortion caused by the rolling shutter.
