  1. Watching The walking dead, "recorded" first 6 eps... awesome so far.. ep1 :-)

  2. Anyone suggest any good Android apps? My fave is XBMC remote.

  3. In August next year, MSFN will be TEN YEARS OLD. Thats pretty crazy! ..and still no sign of slowing down http://web.archive.org/web/20030122211912/http://www.msfn.org/
  4. CMD is a bit clunky for managing printers with imo... probably better if you switch to vbs. My machines are in OU's on AD, so say: SALES - salesprn1 - salesprn2 - salesprn3 and so on. if a user logs onto a machine and its in the SALES\salesprn1\ OU on AD, then salesprn1 printer would be their default printer, i add the other printers in the same department as well just so they have the option of printing to another one if they choose. Users then get to move around and the nearest printer to them is always their default printer. 'IMPORTANT. DO NOT user Share names to install p
  5. Hi, im looking for some decent content filter / web proxy software for my network at work. We had nothing in place till recently, when i inplemented CCProxy. its pretty basic but does the job well. However i want to filter by USERS and not machines. CCProxy is supposed to do this but it doesent do a very good job of it (hey what do you expect for $60, right?) - users have to sign into IE evertime they start it using their domain username/password. I want to be able to block certain users or restrict them on the internet no matter what terminal they go sit at. yeah i could do this with a hosts
  6. Thanks CF! setting the column to bit fixes it, that way SQL converts the numeric value on insert. Also Mycheckbox.checked.ToString() will work too, though thats having vb do the conversion not SQL server.
  7. because then its saving the value, whatever it is at the minute, till i get it to save as true/false i changed it because it was crapping out on creating a record, so i needed to see what value it was saving. i dont think bit would be right anyway would it? ive tried s many tweakings now im a bit lost from where i was origionally - but i seem to remember on editing a record id get a SQL error about saving a varchar value "True" to a bit column. Ill change it back and see what i get, thanks for pointing it out CF. Though off the top of my head... bit would be for values 0 1 2? And im wanting to
  8. Hi, i have a form with text boxes for username, initials, and password on. Also on this form are a few checkboxes which at the minute i simply want to save their state to SQL as true or false depending if ticked or not. The checkboxes or text boxes are not bound to anything, and are used only for creating a new record in the table. There is a gridview below these boxes showing already created records. The code im using to insert to SQL with is: If String.IsNullOrEmpty(UsernameTb.Text) Then MsgBox("You must enter a Username!") Else If String.IsNullOrEmpty(InitialsTb.Text) Then MsgB
  9. I've thought long and hard, and have decided on my New Year's resolution. 1280×960.
  10. I just posted a guide on how to do this in the guides section, for anyone who wants to do this. ill add images and improve the guide if needed. http://msfn.org/articles.php?action=show&showarticle=192 Attached is an example ringtone / alarm sound i made using this method. To use it, download bugle.zip to your pc, and extract the bugle.m4r file from the zip. Then drag and drop the bugle.m4r file into itunes (or do File > Add file To Library... from within iTunes). Next, with your iPhone attached to the PC/Mac, select your device in iTunes and click the Ringtones tab, make sure the Bugle
  11. "Doctor, it hurts when i poke myself in the eye!" maybe months ago it did work. But within that time the site has probably had a software update. Its something people do, it helps keeps things running smoothly, ensures your software stays supported, maintains security, and also means new features here and there. Thats probably why it now "doesent work" There is no magic fix that will enable your old out of date operating system, and old browser, to run modern code. No more than there is a magic fix to make my old PII machine in the attic be able to run 64bit Vista. Nobody would ever upgrade i
  12. While it might well be vista, it might also be your usb stick, they only have a limited lifespan, and deteriorate with use, people dont realise this... also, you pay for what you get for, and cheap sticks are more prone to fail. Then again its likley vista, or what you have done to it, re enable RDC and see if it still does it. was it just a one off?? or does it do it every time? if so hit cancel, remove the stick, put it back in (usb 2.0..) and try again... if its still the same, then try xp and see, if it STILL does it - then go buy a new usb stick
  13. Wrong forum section... And actually you could build two machines with identical hardware in each machine, install vista on both - activate the installs - then if you try swap the hdd's over = fail. why? because the hardware signature is different. Anti piracy measure.. obviously.
  14. Problem is caused by out of date browser software and its inability to parse modern code. How do you fix it? - well without wanting to come across as being an a** with you, you already know the answer = upgrade, as Tarun rightly pointed out. Im guessing that your wifes computer is a bit on the old side, that or she is one of those people who really doesent ever want upgrade and cling to 98 for dear life, like some old car (till eventually it rusts out) Well the rust has made big holes in the foot wells, and its time to get a new motor. You could pick up a decent machine running Vista home prem
  15. not "news" - so much as anticipated/expected. See hardware news...
  16. the problem with that is, it would be a very complicated control panel, and for some settings you would have toi seriously dig down, scarring some users and making it harder to navigate in general, and thus defeating the object. Are you wanting gpo, hyperv, ad, dns, sites and services etc etc... all in there too???
  17. On vista, under network and sharing center, is file sharing turned on? if so expand it and check the other options within. Because you can share files without the public folders being on - and with us not knowing where you put your file....
  18. i just came to the site and had to sign in also.... new instance of IE after reboot
  19. If that where the case, then i would have thought he would have noticed more than just "the airfilter was big" and i dont think he would have just dumbly returned the car either... :/ as for the HHO bit, i agree too - go to that site and watch some clips, especially the explosive hazards one - constantly the site tells you to not mix metals and use only stainless through the system. umm, ok... makes sense, you dont want to make a nice little hho generator just to have it eat itself away before going bang. But ummm... what do you think its doing to the inside of your copper sleaved cylinders wi
  20. For those of us that know nothing about this, and are far far too lazy to go google it... how about some info on what exactly it is and what the goal of the project is, and a link to download and more info etc? Never know more people might like to actually be involved and help out with development and testing etc
  21. Just read this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/7716269.stm cheeky coal burning sods.... how much did that Birds nest stadium cost again????
  22. Theres plenty such videos on youtube: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=xekr6eQL62U&...feature=related But basically, clean the cpu with some alcohol and a cotton swab. make sure you get all the old thermal grease off. put a small blob of thermal compound on your CPU core (in your case, yes the little raised square) about the size of a large grain of rice should do it for a p3. now, using a credit card, spread the thermal grease over the rest of the core, keep the layer of grease uniform in thickness and make sure it covers the whole core, you dont want any dry pockets in there. the layer shou
  23. Dont forget bad memory and gpu drivers have you got another machine at home you could try it on?
  24. isnt that the version that has the bug in it, that allows someone to run malicous code on your machine? bit of a stickler for what versions you use arent you? (as in still using 98 also)
