    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.
  16. I would say uha compression. Although it is slow, it works very well. There is a nice GUI for it here: http://www.klaimsoft.com/winuha/
  17. Most bulletin boards (if not all newer ones) store an MD5 hash of a password. The only way they could find the original text password is if they try to generate random passwords and find the md5 sum for each random one; matching it up untill they get the same. Since most people find this takes very long, they will usually not bother with it.
  18. Its because when the BIOS disk call's are passed to the Windows driver, there is no driver availiable for the IDE controller. It probably flashes INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. Since there is no active driver for your IDE controller it can't read the boot device. You can try this procedure if you get the error: from: http://www.windowsreinstall.com/install/ot...rd/problems.htm IBD Solution 4: Delete Drivers using Recovery Console: 1) Open the Recovery Console and type LISTSVC. A list of drivers loaded on startup will be displayed. 2) Locate the IDE drivers and type DISABLE name.ext (where name.ext is the driver name and extension). 3) Once the IDE drivers are disabled, exit and reboot. On reboot, Win2k will load the standard default IDE driver and should startup.
  19. Most of your problems are caused by the fact that this is an alpha release. I know there is a newer build for Athlon 64. I am also experiancing most of the problems you are using build 4074, and since Microsoft plans to totally change the driver architecture, I see compatibility getting to a point where the old drivers wont work anymore.
  20. Well the reason your webpage does not work is because you are using the wrong slashes. if you use \test.jpg that translates to %5Ctest.jpg (an escape character). The proper slash is always / not matter what filesystem you use (except for Windows)
  21. Whenever you use the sleep API in Windows, it will make the program feel like it is frozen. You may want to try a timer instead of using sleep, as it will not make your program become unresponsive.
  22. FileZilla is a very good solution. It has many features such as connecting over SSH2, SSL, etc. Btw, its also 100% open source and free.
  23. IMO MAC address filtering is not as safe as most people think. When a client sends an 802.11 frame (encrypted or not), the header of the frame (which contains the MAC address) is never encrypted. This means people can use a wireless sniffer such as kismet and find all the clients' mac address' in a matter of minutes. However, WEP encryption at 128-bit can be decrypted by analysing about 100mb of traffic. So, you can change the key every day and you would be pretty secure.
  24. The only thing that *might* work is the renew/release IP button in most SMC routers. Realistically, the amount of time you have an IP is determined by you ISP's DHCP server, which sets when the IP should be renewed.
  25. Since the mac's are based on unix you can set up a CRON job every day on them. Just simply make a script to do the following #!/bin/bash tar cvjf /Disk/Mount/backup.tar.gz /System /Home /etc Then it would compress and back up the /system /Home /etc folder to the file which would then be saved to a mounted Windows share (assuming /Disk/Mount/ is where the windows share is mounted on the macs)
