I was a long-time user of ESET Antivirus until Windows 10 and the much-enhanced Defender came along. ESET was reliable, frequently updated, had a fairly low impact on performance, and a generally good reputation at the time. I haven't used it in three years or so.
at home Winders Defenser. on the winders machines.
At work McAffeeeeeee (virus itself locks up your PC with on Access scanning at least 2x a day. locks for 15 minutes or more at a time) Worse POS(point of sale hahaha) I have ever seen in my life. So bad that the original person it was named after no longer claims it. Not that he is all that and a bag of chips.
Mostly at home I use Linux Mint and ignore everything else.

A few years ago I started work on a web project that involved an interactive hex-grid display (yes, it was a game). I used jQuery 1.1 and a nice add-on library that allowed jQuery-like control of SVG. It worked very well but I had other things come along and I left it alone for a couple of years.
Now I want to start it up again but the SVG library is no longer maintained and doesn't seem to work with Jquery 3.0 which I want use as I use it in all my other web projects. Someone suggested I switch to one called "Raphael" but before I start converting my old code I want to scan the field for the best option.
Note: I have a lot of images already created in SVG so I am not looking to switch to using HTML5 canvas instead.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
I used Raphael a few years ago. It worked well for what I needed, which was a "user control" for tagging and annotating images.
Other than that though I haven't used it for anything significant, nor have a used anything else to compare it to.
Unless you have some very specific needs, I wouldn't think it matters much what you use. Perhaps even just choose the library that has been around the longest, that way you probably don't have to worry about restarting a 2nd time in another few years.
Okay, after 'retiring',I started doing the odd 1099 contract on the side. It has done a fairly good job of giving me enough slush to take a few trips, buy some nice things (new house!), etc. However (always have one of those, right?) I am now in a position of taking on two contracts, both of which want 8 hours a day. Both are interesting and in areas I have not done much in (one in simulation/animation and the other is e-finance).
Any thoughts or experiences about juggling two 8 hour/day contracts?
