  1. Don't know. I tried them on IE, and they worked. I didn't like how they looked though, so I never bothered to attempt them on any other browser. Although, if they do only work on IE then it would be bad. I know deviantart works on IE and firefox and opera. Now, if only i can figure out how they do it. I'm gonna keep screwing around with the source until I figure it out.
  2. Yeah those are great links indeed. I actually came across them in a search through google before I ever started this topic. I did infact get it to work successfully, but those methods don't give me the same effect as DeviantArt's way. I have been going through their CSS and html coding trying to figure it out but it is way above my level. I tried so many different ways but I can't seem to get it working
  3. I've read many guides on how to create a drop shadow for images using CSS, and I actually got it to work but it just doesn't have the look I want. I want my drop shadows to look look the same as how they do it on deviantart.com. If you go there you will see that they have a nice little drop-shadow on most of the thumbnails and images they have. I was looking through the source but I can't figure out how they are doing it. Right now I am using a different method but it doesn't look so nice I am hoping somebody can lend me a hand here. B)
  4. Thanks for the replies guys. rjz... I dont know what that is. I will try some of the things you guys mentioned though... i hope i get this fixed
  5. I have a feeling it is the network card. But the strange thing is, why is this happening all of a sudden? My PC has been working fine for a very long time. This problem is only happening within the recent last few months. Nothing has ever changed. It's still the same PC I built about a year ago What's even more bizzare is that the BSOD is totally random. There is no way to tell when it will strike. I can go for a week without seeing it. Then there are days when I see it multiple times.... really wierd.
  6. Hi. I hope someone here can help me out. I keep getting this blue screen of death. I don't know what is causing it and I don't know how to fix it. I happens randomly while surfing the web. I just did a clean install of windows. The only thing installed is my firewall (outpost) and my antivirus (fprot). I don't know what to do. I am using Windows XP Pro on a 3Ghz P4 with 1GB ram. Please, if anyone knows what this BSOD means or how to fix it, let me know. I'd appreciate any help. Here is a picture I took of the BSOD: (click to enlarge)
  7. I'd like to wait for your new version to be ready before I make my unattended cd. I was going to make it today but since you're saying it's getting its finishing touches, I think i'll wait for it. Just a quick question, will it still work with nlite or will we just have to integrate it after nlite is done with everything else?
  8. Thank you RyanVM, for your reply and your excellent work I guess your hotfix pack is the way to go
  9. RyanVM - http://ryanvm.msfn.org/updatepack.html Sticky hotfixes topic - http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=31886&st=0 Hello everyone. I am having a hard time understanding why RyanVM's pack lists over 125 hotfixes while the sticky topic shows only 26 hotfixes? Isn't that a pretty significant difference? I also noticed that the sticky topic has some hotfixes that RyanVM's pack is missing. And i'm not talking about the new june/july hotfixes, i'm talking about hotfixes from months ago. So what's the deal with the difference and which one should I use?
  10. Im not sure it is possible to rightclick a file/folder and have an option to "Select All"... although, after seeing the skills of some of the people on this forum I have come to beleive that nothing is impossible. Wether there is a way or not, you can always select from the menu bar at the top: Edit -> Select All : or like HyperHacker said, just use Ctrl+A (it can't get any faster than that)
  11. Ahhhhh.... the power of ResHack Thanks alot for the tip! It worked!
  12. What I am trying to do is remove some icons from my context menu. All I want to see is text. This illustration better defines it: I want to keep the option to add to archive, but I don't want to see that icon.
  13. Hey drBozo, you beat me to it by 1 min. And yes, setting the new var does exactly what I need. I appreciate the reply. Thanks for helping
  14. Hey I managed to figure it out with the help of someone on another forum. Here is what needs to be done (for anyone interested): for %%i in (%1) do echo %%~dpi The above code will take the variable that has the complete filepath and echo the directory path only
  15. OK, I hope I can explain this well enough for some genius to understand and help me out Im going to make a batch file that will be loaded by right-clicking mp3 files and selecting "some option" from the context menu. Assuming I save this batch file as: C:\Windows\test.bat Now, on right-clicking an mp3 file I will have an option that, if selected, will perform the following run command: "C:\Windows\test.bat" %1 The %1 automatically sets the selected mp3s filepath as a variable called %1 in the batch file. So lets say I rightclick on C:\music\coolsong.mp3 and select "the option" from the menu... C:\Windows\test.bat will now load up and have the variable %1 which = "C:\music\coolsong.mp3" Now here is what I want to do with this %1 variable: I want to create a new variable with the selected mp3s directory path instead of the filepath. So for this example I will need to somehow set a variable which = "C:\music\" I really don't know what to do. All I want is to take the variable I already have ("C:\music\coolsong.mp3") and transform it to: "C:\music\" I really hope somebody here can help me out. If anything, maybe someone here knows of a forum that I can join which specializes in topics about creating batch files?? It would really help me out. Thanks alot everyone.
  16. Yeah I also tried a number of those tweaks as well with no luck. Thanks alot for your help.
  17. Takeshi, I have done what you suggested and the tool tips still pop up for the start button and the quick launch shortcuts
  18. Yeah i'm talkign about the tooltips, like when you hover over the Start Button and it says "Click here to begin" or when you hover over a quicklaunch shortcut and it says the name of the shortcut... I hate it, It pops up too fast. Maybe there is a way to slow down the time for when the tooltip shows (ex: hover over for 10 seconds instead of 10ms) ??
  19. Is there a way to disable the tool tips that pop up only for the following: -Quick Launch Toolbar -Start Button -All Items within the start menu Sometimes tool tips are usefull, but I hate them popping up in those 3 places I listed above because they contain no usefull information and are just plain annoying. Anyway to disable them for those places only?
  20. Hey guys! Here is a screen shot of my folder view: Everytime I reinstall windows I have to set it back to look like that. I was wondering if it was possible to save this folder view in a reg file and just run it when I reinstall. I need it to save the buttons, toolbars, size, and all. Hope there is a way, it would really help out. thanks.
