  2. F.E.A.R 2nd worst game ever

    I don't need much more of a story than "Here's your gun, shoot the bad thingies..."
  3. Media Center on Server 2008

    I fail to understand why desktop features would be included in a server operating system. That's just additional cost overhead that 99.99999% of us don't want/need in our server OSes. Personally, I never saw the reason for people to run Server 2003 as a desktop OS. I could understand some perceived benefit since it has a newer kernel than XP SP2. But Server 2008 and Vista SP1 have the same kernel. Yes, some things are tuned a bit differently, but they're more geared towards making server-based applications work faster. If you want the desktop features, buy the desktop OS. Just my 2 cents. I agree... I was checking out a few other forums and so forth and someone was complaining and stating how 2008 "sucks" because their favorite game would not install/run on it. If you need Desktop OS features, why run a Server OS? Just because it is the latest and greatest?
  4. Has anyone tried clustering virtual servers using either VMWare or Virtual PC? I would imagine it was possible. If so, how did you set up a Quorum resource without using Local Quorum? MSDTC running ok? Thanks!
  5. Change product key = change version?

    As far as I know, you have to re-install. The bits are different so a product key will not work across version. If you have an Ultimate CD and try to use a Home key, it will spit out an invalid key error.
  6. Porting FAX feature from Ultimate to Home?

    I use this with my modem (no it is not a USR, but it still works) http://www.usr.com/bvrp/bvrp.asp Free.
  7. MS SQL Server 2005

    I have a couple questions on a SQL cluster I am building and was wondering if there were any SQL Clustering guru's out there. I have a question about Active/Active install. Thanks!
  8. To 64 or not to 64, that is the... ummm... ?

    Mr Snrub, Thanks for the detailed information! I think I will definately do it this weekend. Any idea's if Sim City 4 has issues with 64bit? That is about the only game my g/f plays other than WoW, so I want to make sure it works for her. Thanks!
  9. FTP Server APPS

    I have been ising Filezilla forever and a day now. I love it and best of all, open source so it si free! Server and Client applications available.
  10. Disabling Adobe Products Updater PopUps

    Also check your Task Scheduler, I found it there in Vista.
  11. Your Vista SP 1 experience

    I'll be working on mine this weekend! Would you suggest making sure I have all my drivers ready before install? I have multiple hard drives, so no worries on that end, but other than your web cam, you run into anything else? Thanks!
  12. To 64 or not to 64, that is the... ummm... ?

    Thanks for the replies. I think I am going to take the plunge and try out the 64 bit and see how it is, however, I think I may try the Dual Boot option if it is possible. Guess I'll see... B)
  13. ISA Server 2006

    I have been searching for a bit now with little to no success so I thought I would ask the community... I am in need of setting up ISA Server EE 2006 and was wondering if anyone has a Security Best Practices for Operaions Manager 2007 (formerly SCOM)? I am trying to use this so I can allow users access to the web console across domains. Thanks!
  14. Ok all, I did some searching and have not found anything specific to this, but I have not take the plunge to 64 bit OS in any fashion for home use and was hoping for some help. I just built me a new rig (Core 2 Duo Quad Core CPU, 4GB RAM, nForce 8600 GT 512MB x2, SATA DVD Burner, Seagate 500GB SATA HDD x2) running Vista Ultimate 32 bit currently. Now, I am a gamer (mostly play WoW, Neverwinter Nights 2, FEAR and a few other games) so I was wondering how well games overall work with 64 bit. I know that most all my productivity applications work well on 64. Big question, will I really see a diff? I use 64 OS's on my servers here, but they are work horses (4 dual cores, 16-64GB RAM and Local/SAN storage out the wazoo) and know it's great, but I never looked at it from a home perspective. What are some of the pitfalls that I might run into trying out a 64 bit OS? Thanks!
