All he is saying is that of course anyone that writes a program is not going to say it's full of adware and junk.  They're going to say it's clean from any of that. 

Sort of like the Fox watching over the Hen house and telling the farmer that "Yes, all is good here" as the farmer then goes to bed and the Fox goes to work gathering up some chickens to eat.

Hi, geranium: :)
 

Does anyone use rainlendar please?

 
Based on the fact that no one has replied yet since you first posted on Oct 28 with any personal experience, it appears that none of our forum members has any personal experience with this program. :(

There is a "company" review of the product at the softonic website here: http://rainlendar.en.softonic.com/#company_review
 

I cannot see how to access it from 2 wi fi Pcs?

 

As there doesn't seem to be significant experience with the program among our forum members, you might have better luck at the vendor's web site?

FAQ: http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/?option=com_easyfaq&Itemid=26

 

Let us know how it goes with the program, if you decide to try it,

Thanks.

 

I am using it thank you, I just cannot see how to access it from 2 wi fi PCs.

 

It seems it needs to buy the Pro version which costs very little but I am trying to find out beforehand because I am trying to avoid having things on my PC which in the event I do not use.

 

What are skins please?

 

Thanks for help.

a "skin" could be considered the "window dressings" of how the GUI (graphic user interface) is designed .

are you familiar with things like the "themes" for firefox and winamp ?

basically speaking if you look at the visual differences (how they look on the screen) between (say) windows ME , XP , vista , 7 and 8 you are looking at the "skinning" of the operating system .

Thanks, CWB. ;)

 

Yes, geranium, as CWB explained, skins are basically a different "theme" or style or appearance for a program:

Here is a wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_%28computing%29

They are largely cosmetic and unnecessary.

Sometimes, they can "break" features of a program or cause other conflicts/compatibility problems.

As such, I would suggest running rainlendar with the default skin for a while before making any changes, such as a new skin.

Whatever you do, do NOT download or install skins from any source other than the software publisher itself -- 3rd-party sources could be untrustworthy and their products could possibly contain malware/adware/spyware/junkware.

 

As for your problems with accessing the calendar on some of your computers, you might have better luck seeking support at the rainlendar product web site.

They have a forum here: http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42

And their support contact info is here: http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=13&Itemid=31

 

Hope this helps,

Thanks both for replies.

 

No I am not familiar with anything to do with skins and never heard of this before. Thanks for good advice.

 

So far as rainlendar is concerned I had tried the FAQs, forum and support without success.

 

I read elsewhere that they may be not able to answer support and forum.

 

It seems that the way to do what I want using rainlendar is done via Google Calendar which holds it on the web and not on the desktop and rainlendar holds it on the desktop and not on the web so the combination gives both options.

 

Thanks everyone for help.
