    From Air to Watercooling Guide

    Nice rig. The only suggestions are A) Estimated price guide Time Involved (1 year?) 1)purchasing 2) installing 3)testing (you said 24 hours) C) Links for products used like the thermal grease, tubing, and so on.. Also, does the system run on just plain jane water or is it distilled, bottled etc? And do you ever have to change the water? Will it ever get funky or mouldy? Nice work. I am impressed.

    What OS is Best For This Computer?

    Throw on Mandrake 10 and make a server/firewall for your LAN. Or windows 2000, and make an FTP server out of it. You'll need more ram to even make windows 95 run well

    file and printer sharing

    What workgroup name are you using for each machine? It could also be that you need different usernames and passwords for each.. Also are you running any firewall? If so shut it off. Can you remote desktop into the other machine client>host and host>client?

    Reboot (?)

    Start with the blaster worm fix, then regress to the more rudimentary of troubleshooting.

    Cookies Don't Work?

    YOu tried deleting the cookies manually, You emptied the contents of the temp internet files, Ok, now try this, Go to internet options, click on privacy, then click on the edit button at the bottom, the add the sites that you are having the cookie issues with. See if that resolves it. ALso try lowering the security levels to the lowest settings and visit the sites. Further try opening internet options, click the advanced tab and choose the restore defaults button. If none of that works, try mozilla: http://www.mozilla.org Hope that helps. Update: Went back and reread your post, and seeing that this happened after you installed Win2k3 server, I thought I'd give it a second shot: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=816465 Try the suggestions listed on that site. TEll me if it helps. That sounds more like the trouble you are having. SYMPTOMS After you upgrade to Microsoft Windows Server 2003, you may find that your list of Trusted sites is missing. CAUSE This issue occurs because Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is turned on by default and your list of Trusted sites was not imported to the list that is currently in use. The version of Microsoft Internet Explorer in Windows Server 2003 uses two separate lists of Trusted sites; one list that is in effect when Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is turned on, and one list that is in effect when Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is turned off. When you upgrade to Windows 2003 Server, your list of Trusted sites in an earlier version of Internet Explorer are imported into the Trusted sites list that is used when Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is turned off. RESOLUTION When Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is activated on your server, the security settings for all Internet sites are set to High. If you trust a Web page and need it to be functional, you can add that page to the Trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps: In Internet Explorer, locate the site that you want to add. On the File menu, click Add this site to, and then click Trusted sites zone. In the Trusted sites dialog box, click Add to move the site to the list, and then click Close. On the View menu, click Refresh to view the site from the Trusted zone. On the Status bar of Internet Explorer, confirm that the site is now in the Trusted sites zone. ANd below is a similiar article discussing this issue: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=815141

    why is windows XP scaning my hdd`s on every reboot

    I agree with drew on this one, get yourself a low level format, then try to reinstall. If it still happens, you got yourself a dud HDD from what I can tell.

    Cookies Don't Work?

    sounds like a case of corrupted cookies. Try going into the temp and internet temp folders and deleting all the files and cookies in those folders. Then try relogging into the sites that you are having issues with. Further you might want to try to set the IE properties back to default. There is a setting in the IE tools options, under programs tab, click reset web settings.

    why is windows XP scaning my hdd`s on every reboot

    Look at your schedualed tasks. That's settings - controle panel - scheduled tasks. And see if it has been schedualed to run on start up. Or just remove this command from the register, remember to back your registry up before you do this: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute: 'autocheck autochk *'

    The Hulk Leaked 14 days in Advance

    MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) SMF is the PIRATE group that released the workprint.

    The Hulk Leaked 14 days in Advance

    ali, If you saw it 1 month ago, then you sir must be one of the leakers It wasn't leaked officially at least according to my source until the 6th of June 2003.. care to share more information about seeing this leak 1 month before it was released on the net? I don't doubt you in the slightest, just wondering if perhaps you are a member of SMF?

    The Hulk Leaked 14 days in Advance

    I can imagine the MPAA is having a fit right now
  18. Behind the darkest nooks and crannies of the internet lurks file traders hitting their ISPs up for precious bandwidth to nab the pre-released copies of 'The Hulk.' Labled as a workprint, (definition below): WORKPRINT (WP) - A workprint is a copy of the film that has not been finished. It can be missing scenes, music, and quality can range from excellent to very poor. Some WPs are very different from the final print (Men In Black is missing all the aliens, and has actors in their places) and others can contain extra scenes (Jay and Silent Bob) . WPs can be nice additions to the collection once a good quality final has been obtained. It was released officially on 6/6/2003 by a piracy group going by the acronym SMF. The release is circulating on several IRC chatrooms, a couple Peer 2 Peer applications, and amongst hundreds of private FTP servers. The most interesting point of this release, besides the speed at which it was released, is the fact that there are three black bars covering serial numbers that help identify the movie. It would seem that the workprint was coded as to prevent this type of thing from happening. But then we see the result clearly. Source Hope this is ok to post here. I figure it will be any day before zdnet or news.com release the info. So I made a post about it. Feel free to delete it, if it is unacceptable. But I think I treated it as news and not as a means to get the movie.

    Reinstalling XP

    I wonder if you are ever able to rip the innards out of the restore cd borrow a friends copy and make your own CD that boots? Say you want to install all the bloat from SONY, Toshiba etc... but you want a complete CD too. Borrow the friends cd, compile a new cd using the best of both. doubt that it is possible, but it could make for an interesting project.

    couple things to check: Firewalls.. make sure they are turned off.. or have the ports mapped... on both machines Check to make sure both machines allow for remote desktop in the system properties of My computer.. make sure you are using the correct IP addresses... Make sure you are using the correct username and password, and if you are on a domain, make sure the domain information is correct..

    win32 priority sepration question

    Well I had to do a little research on this one: The relative priority of foreground vs background applications can be set my modifying Win32PrioritySeparation at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\PriorityControl\Win32PrioritySeparation This type REG_DWORD entry defaults to 2 if the value is not present. Win32PrioritySeparation determines how much processor time the threads of a foreground process receive each time they are scheduled on a Windows NT workstation processor. For those that didn't know, I am sure the information above will prove helpful. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Prio rityControl or create it if not present: right-click on an empty spot -> select New -> Key -> paste "PriorityControl" (no quotes) into the type-in box -> click OK to save. Now highlight this key, and in the right hand pane create a new DWORD [REG_DWORD] Value called "Win32PrioritySeparation" (no quotes) -> double-click on it -> check the Decimal box -> type 1 -> click OK to save. When this baby is set to 1, the foreground (active) application has more CPU power than the background (inactive) apps (if any), and if you set the value to 2, you get even more power to the foreground app: 0 = Foreground and background applications equally responsive. 1 = Foreground application more responsive than background. 2 = Best foreground application response time. The maximum value allowed is 26 (Hex) or 38 (Decimal). From what I have gathered you are correct in that 38 (using the decimal notation) is the highest you can go.

    sndvol32 no sound!

    well, I would try the following. Windows cannot display the volume control on the taskbar because the Volume Control program has not been installed. To install it use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. To resolve this issue, extract a new copy of Sndvol32.exe from the Windows XP compact disc to the system_root \System32 folder on your computer's hard disk. To do this, follow these steps: Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. Press and hold down the SHIFT key as you insert the CD-ROM to prevent it from starting automatically. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type cmd , and then click OK. Type the following lines at the command prompt, pressing ENTER after each line, where CD-ROM drive is the drive letter of the computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD-ROM, and system_root is the path and folder name where the Windows system files are located (generally C:\Windows): CD-ROM drive: cd i386 expand sndvol32.ex_ system_root \system32\sndvol32.exe For example, if your computer's CD-ROM drive is drive E, and the folder that contains the Windows system files is C:\Windows, type the following lines at the command prompt (pressing ENTER after each line): e: cd i386 expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe Type exit to quit the command prompt. Verify that you can start Volume Control and that the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area of the taskbar (if you selected this option). OR Click start. Click run Type SFC /Scannow I would consider that a system file that probably needs replaced. Hope it works for you! If not post back here, and I will try to think of something else besides the two ideas above.
