RE: Best Places to Live in the World 2010
Discrate, You make me ashamed for being white and European. Just shut the fuck up while you still have a leg to stand on. Please. I do not follow how you terrorizing some Indian student amounts to just "being young and stupid". We all make mista...

RE: Best Places to Live in the World 2010
Oh, dear. You know, Discrate, I've never been a big fan of yours. Fortunately there are other Australians here to redeem the image of your country, which if it were based on your words and actions, would be rather dim indeed. Jesus. I don't even ...

RE: I cant see my 32bit HD [SOLVED]
That is NOT the reason. You will also need to describe the problem better. For starters, check Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) for any "unknown" devices, in case you had some sort of storage controller that wasn't recognized out of the box. This is...

RE: MySQL Date/time help?
Not at all. Ordering by a function return value obviously adds some overhead and I wouldn't want to use this on two million rows, but you will be just fine.

RE: No cheap cell providers in the US?
No, the whole point was that you can't. The Boost iDEN SIM card will fit in your GSM phone and it may even work [b]outside the US[/b] where Sprint/Nextel has international roaming agreements. However, they have no such agreements here, where you a...

RE: MySQL Date/time help?
Without making any changes to how you are storing your data, the easiest solution would be to use: SELECT * FROM myTable ORDER BY STR_TO_DATE(myTimestamp, '%m/%d/%y %H:%i:%s') DESC That should do exactly what you want, by converting your date/time ...

RE: No cheap cell providers in the US?
Menthix is right. Majority of the cellular service is contract and fixed monthly cost based (as long as you don't exceed the plan allowances). That is how we do it here, like it or not. Prepaid or "pay as you go" service just hasn't caught on a...

RE: Switch surround sound channels?
I thought I already posted this, but guess I just wrote it and never hit "post". You can re-wire a VGA or parallel switchbox, a mechanical one like [url=http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21P3e6n zbKL._SL500_AA250_.jpg]this[/url]. It will provid...

RE: Laptop...worth buying?
You clearly have been looking at non-Thinkpad Lenovo lines. Thinkpads are anything but cheap. What goes for them is the solid feel and the fact if you ever need to whack somebody in the head with your laptop, their skull will crack before the Think...

RE: Laptop...worth buying?
Just shop around some other brands and see. Computer pricing changes very quickly. No one can really tell you how good the price is, unless they've shopped for something with similar specs in the last month or two. That said, Dell is usually [b]ve...

RE: no http,
The "user friendly" error messages, particularly from IE, can make it hard to tell what's really going on. However, if he in fact got 404 (HTTP "not found") errors, that wouldn't be DNS -- you have to successfully reach a server to get the err...

RE: Google Chrome OS
They have. They don't do it anymore. Windows NT4 was available for MIPS (SGI, pre-Alpha DEC) and DEC Alpha. It was one of "those things" that didn't go anywhere because the applications simply were not there. There wasn't any kind of emulati...

Obsession with this subject is amusing. As you've been told, there is nothing technical that will tell you somebody has blocked you on Messenger. However, I can give you a few clues of different kind: 1. Change of habit following some sort of a di...

RE: hosts file/dns/alternative
On your Linux clients, add a "search local" line to /etc/resolv.conf. There are probably other ways to fix it, but that should be the easiest. Refer to [url=http://linux.die.net/man/5/resolv.conf]this[/ url] for full documentation.

RE: How to prevent limited user from accessing 2nd drive?
You can't. That feature is only for files and folders under your user profile (e.g. My Documents). MeEtc has the right idea, although I'd prefer to leave the permissions to the "Administrators" group instead of granting them to a specific user. ...

Anorexia is stupid. Good food is one of the last remaining pleasures in life that our pussified society has not yet made illegal. You already can't have any good drugs and most good sex -- just STFU and have your leg of lamb. Preferably [url=http...

The best tool to use if you want to create a local copy of all or part of a website is [url=http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/]wget[/url]. It is command line based, so it takes some learning curve to get it to do exactly what you want: "wget -r -np ...

If there are no beeps and no BIOS startup screens, you've done something more than just mix up connections between drives and SATA ports. Anyway, start by disconnecting all the drives, both SATA and power. See if you at least get the BIOS screens ...

RE: Is it worth upgrading from WinXP to Win7?
That's a little better than I'd have expected from 2001. Windows 7 is said to perform about the same or even slightly better than XP on marginal hardware. That would be a massive improvement over Vista. It is also much nicer than Vista. I'd prob...

RE: HELP! PC Start/Boot Up
It sounds like something hanging up the IDE or SATA controller, usually a failing device. See if you can find some diagnostic to run on your hard drive (most likely from the manufacturer of the drive) and if you haven't done so already, test the DV...
