    Yep, I got this email:
  2. Congrats. I noticed it is quite a bit faster now
  3. The problem is probably when it detects the video card. Which card are you using? It may be detecting an onboard card you aren't using or you have some nonstandard one. Have you tried waiting? On some cards it stays blank for about 10 secs, but it shouldnt really be a problem.
  4. FYI, ASM means Abstract State Machine, which is a diagram of how a device/cpu switches between different states and IO sequences. The proper name today is "assembly language."
  5. Actually I am talking more about the implementation of memory cells in modern DDR-SDRAM. Even with the higher capacity they get, they still have the same amount of time to refresh their content (on rising and falling clock edge). This is not a problem if we have a regulated power supply, but any minor deviations from the norm usually does not produce good results (i.e EMF). The chance of an error increases as these memory cells must be refreshed faster and faster when capacity is increased. Heat could pose a problem, but we are talking about extremes (usually around 0 to 70 C), which is not a problem so far.
  6. Although it may seem ridiculous, you should see the hacks that memory chip manufaturers are using nowadays in order to accomplish this (especially how they accomplish to keep DRAM data while providing higher data access rates) In the event that you have lots of computers side by side (or other high current devices), you will notice problems due to EMF. Servers usually use ECC with and extra bit for each memory loc in order to track errors that occur, so I wouldnt suggest using non-ECC memory in any large corporate environment. Although you may not notice errors or crashes, large amounts of data being processed rapidly are almost guaranteed to switch a bit here and there. Although anything at home/SOHO shouldnt be a problem.
  7. You can usually press enter and it will let you go through. If you used an OEM disc for install, it might have a default password.
  8. You need to have a gateway proxy so that it requests the apropriate URL from the server you want. An alternative is to get another IP (or use a different port) for the linux server, and make a hidden frame at http://www.mydomain.com/any to load www.mydomain.com:555 or whatever port you forward for the linux server.
  9. Yep, PHP always looks at the %SystemRoot% envar, so you will need to have it under %SystemRoot%\php.ini
  10. You can spare yourself the hassle by using: using namespace std; After the includes
  11. Most memory manufacturers now sell very reliable memory. OCZ is a step higher, so you should be good. Buying modules of higher capacity on one board usually means you have more of a risk of memory errors (just due to manufacturing process and EMF inside of PC). As a rule of thumb, I usually dont buy any modules bigger than 512Mb (although I currently have 4x256Mb)

    Socket T = Socket Tejas = the codename for the LGA775 platform.

    Not really. If you look at socket 478, alot of older boards do not support prescott processors (ones with 845 chipset). There are also some that do/dont support HT, etc. Depending on the chipset again, some LGA775 boards do not support dual core, while others do. Seeing as this is one of the standard older Prescott proccessors, it should work on any LGA775 board with any chipset.
  14. You probably just have the specifc chipset drivers for your motherboard installed by default in XP, whereas in 98 it uses generic ones. This makes a dramatic impact on memory performance and bus througput.
  15. There are modules built into the linux kernel that allow you do this easily. If you have a WRT54G you can download the OpenWRT or Sveasoft firmware which allows you to easily do this.
