  1. Thank god my parents don't use my computer! :):rolleyes:

    I used to let my brother use my computer and somehow he always locked the thing up solid. I was never able to reproduce what he did and he didn't know how he did it. Needless to say, when it comes to my computer no one touches it anymore except for me. The fact that I paid all the money [for all my systems] gives me the right to restrict the access, anyway.

    As I now say when someone asks me to use one of my computers... There is being smart and mean and there is being stupid and nice. I'll be smart... No. I learned the hard way.

  2. indeed.. me myself had a few close encounters.. makes u really think a lot of thinks in life

    That it does, i will appreciate every second of my life from now on :) . It really freaks ya out when stuff like that happens

    It also has an amazing way of making you realize that all those trivial things we, as people, get so wrapped in are really exactly what they are... trivial.

  3. Hey Guys, the .Net installation creates a new user account thereby showing you the logon screen under windows xp. I have had the same problem, remedy, remove the account created and it will enable you to logon as per normal without the use of the logon prompt. The removal of the account has no effect on system performance as far as I can tell.


    Thanks for bringing this point up, Sunil. I feel like a git not having thought of this when I knew the new account was created and sitting there which explains it all. :)

    Being the [overly] cautious person that I am, rather than going to the extreme of deleting the account I disabled it via Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Computer Management | Computer Management (Local) | Local Users and Groups | Users | ASPNET user account | right-click and go down to Properties | General tab | check the "Account is Disabled" box | Apply. :rolleyes:

    Voila! :D

    PS: Yeah, yeah, just deleting the account is much quicker but I wanted safer. :D

  4. I been getting the logo screen too these days...

    Just comes up with my name and logo, i have to click on it to logon. Never had this before i installed the net .NET framework. Anyway to take this off?

    I had my system set up where I never needed to login either. This recently changed when I installed one of the latest critical updates and I finally got around to installing the latest .NET framework update from Windows Update. Now I have to go through this process. I never had it before with .NET framework, though. As for how to remove it w/o possibly removing the .NET framework or whether that will even fix it... I don't know.


  5. Rowling is still better than JRR, JRR's books, well, theyre not gripping, no big advernture, i was milding interested with the hobbit, but that was it.

    To each their own. I grew up on Tolkien. I'm not putting down Rowlings, mind you :)

  6. Rowling has definitely passed him up, even.  If he were alive today, she could probably outwrite him as well.  And probably beat him in armwrestling, too.    Tolkein was just a hack anyway.  He only managed to write one character well.

    Rowling has her own purpose with her books but also read up on what lies behind the Tolkien books. Their meaning goes far beyond a fantasy story. Writers like Tolkien are the reason writers like Rowling exist.

  7. Rowling's work shows that she's one of the most innovative writers since Tolkein.

    Rowling's stories are good without question but many others span the period between Tolkien and her. Check out The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever by Stephen R. Donaldson.

  8. erm yeah it lets me download em manually but that means I have 2 remember to do it

    And yeah there were critical updates waiting to be downloaded

    I turned off that feature... then again it got annoying because I my system is up for 30+ days between reboots and at one point it wouldn't shut up! :rolleyes:

    Anyway, to address your forgetting. If you read this forum,which you obviously do, you'll see the news articles on new updates! :) Problem solved, no? :D

  9. Voice: Christina

    Body: Christina

    Sexual Vibe: Christina

    I should note that although I think Christina wins in these 3 categories I consider her a total freak and she makes my skin crawl.

    I'm also not saying Britney doesn't have her own good pts. But I think right now Christina has more pluses.

    I hated both their releases until Christina's Stripped album. I don't like all of it but I am pretty **** impressed with some of the songs. No shock that Alicia Keys was involved with the album and it having some great material on it :)

  10. I have to agree with what Patricia said. I did something similar... years ago. Somehow no matter how well you clean up Murphy's Law always steps in and there's something you missed that will be discovered. So it's usually better to have the party and then say you had a couple friends over, IMO.
