comment Is there a freeware program for editing the text stream of PDFs?
PDF comes in more than one flavor. The Adobe version is "encrypted" and as such can't be edited without Adobe software. PDF is an open format that is defined in text which is editable by any text editor. Maybe someone can give you a reference to the PDF standard.

comment my laptop wireless registers as 169.254.111.111
@Mark - that wasn't my experience. For years I needed to do all or it didn't work correctly. Any step left out and no-go.

The order is specifically Modem, router, computer. I've had to do it many times until I got a good router & modem.

comment Need an idiot-proof picture resizing program for Windows
Our image batching program that we normally use for setting image size crapped out at about 30000 images, we used IrfanView in batch mode to complete the operation on over 50000 images. I wish I could add more than one plus.

comment Restoring open software after a restart event in windows
For an editor, ultra-edit has that capability. I personally prefer kedit because of it's scripting capabilities.
