  1. Sun Java VM

    actually SP2 has the MSJava update to v.3810. Meaning that, if you previously to apply SP2, had installed MSJava v.3809 and below (either separately or with the SP1 pack), it will update to 3810 when you apply the Service Pack 2. Now, if you slipstream, it won't show. Meaning that if you install XP slipstremad with SP2, then 3089, the update for 3810 will appear in your Windows Update page.
  2. Has a valid key slipped through?

    I tried RH6M6 does not activate. The same for the one that shows up on Pro
  3. ...Blonde jokes galore

    Why does the blonde change her baby's diapers once a week? Because on the package it says 'Up to 20 lb" ===== Why did the blonde was fired from the M & M's Quality Control packaging line? Because she was throwing away all the W's
  4. For IE - how do I get "text size" setting to stay?

    This is what I did: I set the native resolution on the monitor: 1280 x 1024 On Display Properties > Appearance I set Font Size as Large Because I think that the font from the Title Bars is too big I entered Advanced and modified it down to 12 font. For Explorer you can Try changing the font: Tahoma and Palatino Lynotype are the two I find better to read. I also use the Clear Type Effects under the Appearance tab. I don't change the DPI settings because they srew some of my programs like Dreamweaver. Hope this helps

  6. At XtremeMaC's request:

    One day a guy died and found himself in hell. As he was wallowing in despair, he had his first meeting with a demon. The demon asked, "Why so glum?" The guy responded, "What do you think? I'm in hell!" "Hell's not so bad," the demon said. "We actually have a lot of fun down here. You a drinking man?" "Sure," the man said, "I love to drink." "Well, you're gonna love Mondays then. On Mondays all we do is drink. Whiskey, tequila, Guinness, wine coolers, diet Tab and Fresca. We drink till we throw up and then we drink some more!" The guy is astounded. "****, that sounds great." "You a smoker?" the demon asked. "You better believe it!" "You're gonna love Tuesdays. We get the finest cigars from all over the world and smoke our lungs out! If you get cancer, no biggie. You're already dead, remember?" "Wow, the guy said, "that's awesome!" The demon continued. "I bet you like to gamble." "Why yes, as a matter of fact I do." "Wednesdays you can gamble all you want. Craps, blackjack, roulette, poker, slots, whatever. If you go bankrupt, well, you're dead anyhow. You into drugs?" The guy said, "Are you kidding? I love drugs! You don't mean . . ." "That's right! Thursday is drug day. Help yourself to a great big bowl of crack, or smack. Smoke a doobie the size of a submarine. You can do all the drugs you want, you're dead, who cares!" "Wow," the guy said, starting to feel better about his situation. "I never realized Hell was such a cool place!" The demon said, "You gay?" "No!, No!." "Ooooh, you're gonna hate Fridays!" ===== By the time Willard pulled into a little town every hotel room was taken. He finally pulled up to the very last hotel and went into the office. "You've got to have a room somewhere," he pleaded. "Or just a bed - I don't care where." "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you." "No problem," the tired traveler assured him. "I'll take it." The next morning Willard came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" asked the manager. "Never better." The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring, then?" "Nope, I shut him up in no time" said Willard. "How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," Willard explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful...and he sat up all night watching me."
  7. Here is mine: The computer was located on the floor, just in front of me. I was burning a CD when suddenly the CD drive started making a loud noise. Then, the tray literally exploded and a piece of the CD disk, which had been shattered to pieces, went through my blue jeans and got got stuck in my leg (it was a small cut thou). When I put a new CD drive I found out that it was attached by only 2 screws on one side. Probably that made the drive vibrate excessively when running at high speed, which, in turn, caused the accident.
  8. The boy in the closet

    A woman takes a lover home during the day, while her husband is at work. Unbestknown to her, her 9 year old son was hiding in the closet. Her husband comes home unexpectedly, so she puts the lover in the closet with the little boy. The little boy says, " Dark in here." The man says, " Yes it is." Boy - " I have a baseball." Man - " That' s nice." Boy - " Want to buy it?" Man - " No, thanks." Boy - " My dad' s outside." Man - " OK, how much?" Boy - " $250." In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom' s lover are in the closet together. Boy - " Dark in here." Man - " Yes, it is." Boy - " I have a baseball glove." The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, " How much?" Boy - " $750." Man - " Fine." A few days later, the father says to the boy, " Grab your glove. Let' s go outside and toss the baseball back and forth." The boy says, " I can' t. I sold them." The father asks, " How much did you sell them for?" The son says " $1,000." The father says, " That' s terrible to overcharge your friends like that. That is way more than those two things cost. I' m going to take you to church and make you confess." They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confessional booth and he closes the door. The boy says, " Dark in here." The priest says, " Don' t start that s**t again."
  9. Dynamic Disks

    these are my 2 cents: Dynamic disks are not Logical. Logical are partitions of an Extended drive. Basic - Extended (the partitions of Extended are called Logical) Dynamic is more or less like a Basic partition with the disadvantage that you can not make them bootable, and the advantages that you can swap entire HDDs with Dynamic partitions without any problems; or that you can combine, and divide partitions on the fly without loosing any data (good for servers and networks) Now, regarding to what you want to do you face a problem: you can put a program in the Dynamic, but when you install it, it most surely will write Registry keys, even some libraries, into Windows. For example: You partition your HDD in 2 Basic disks (C and D), install Windows in C and then convert D into Dynamic, so you are left with C as Basic and D as Dynamic. Then you install Program X into D, but you have shortcuts (which is the least problem, but also Registry keys and, probably, dlls and other files installed somewhere in Windows). You back up D and then, later on, reformat C and reinstall Windows in it. You need the to have a batch file that installs all the Registry keys and additional files that were in Windows. So you need to identify all thsoe Registry keys and files to make your batch file. That is Mission Impossible man!

  11. Your Native Tongue

    I think that if it was "spread from the Persian Gulf in Asia", it is an Asian language. Now, a real trouble would be for someone living in Turkey
