  1. Had a look at x10. Seems pretty decent for a freebie host. I would also include HelioHost, Zero Dollar ($0.00) Webhost (000 Webhost) and Zymic on the list of good ones. MSFN user Bristol used to have a huge Windows 2000 site hosted with Zymic on one of their subdomains (bristols.zxq.net -- no longer active and not accessible via Wayback Machine), and user Mimo has an informational page about HFSLIP on mimo.zxq.net. I just signed up for HelioHost and found it pretty decent. 500MB of shared web space (not much wiggle room, but pretty decent for "static" pages) and "unlimited" bandwidth. I'm an a
  2. More power to you, and my thoughts go out to your grandfather. I hope he is doing well. There's an old saying "laughter is the best medicine," and I'm not sure if you're familiar with the U.S. comedian Chris Rock, but he would tend to agree (as I do) with your sentiment about (Abridged for content. It is Chris Rock, after all.)
  3. Thanks for the trick, dencorso, and tomasz86 who you quoted. Still no surprise that M$ would hide this from its regular users, though.
  4. I just had me a search for "Windows 7 SP2" and it doesn't look like there will be one as Microsoft gets ready to pull a Mitt Romney and commit professional felo-de-se improve Windows as we know it with the new and improved Windows 8, Codename "2012: Epic Fail." W8 looks like a tablet OS for 3-year-olds (which is what most tablet OSes look like anyway) and W7 (which a lot of people, myself included, consider the "new and improved" Vista SP3) seems to be getting the bum's rush as W8 gets ready for its big premiere in 2013. (Rumor has it Roland Emmerich is scheduled to direct.) Or am I wrong
  5. I know this is an old thread (10mos old), but I just added a post on another thread about a similar solution: VMWare vCenter Converter Standalone Client. It turns your already-running system into a VMWare image that you can open in VMWare or free alternatives like Virtual Box and QEMU.
  6. Newbie here, but I thought I'd mention that there is another alternative that's similar to cloning but slightly different. The popular technology site Make Use Of recommends a VMWare product (free) called vCenter Converter Standalone Client. What it basically does is converts your already-running system to a VMWare virtual machine image that you can then access in VMWare, Virtual Box or QEMU. Works great as a backup solution too. Read the article at Make Use Of - "Turn Your Old Mission-Critical PC Into a VM Before it Dies" Download VMWare vCenter Converter Standalone Client from VMWare.com (Yo
  7. Note: this is NOT a "warez" topic but a discussion of alternate non-IE browsers and M$' disregard for users of them. As I'm sure most of you know, some updates downloaded from Microsoft (as in directly from their site) require a certain "validation" process to ensure that the user is running "genuine Windows." Most often that process occurs automatically when using Internet Explorer as it is a "native" part of the operating system. But since the infamous "browser wars" of the late 1990s (not to mention the now-legendary developments by MSFN's own Nuhi, nLite and vLite), IE is no longer consid
  8. Newbie here. I was wondering if anyone has been able to compile WUD update lists for IE 7-9 and WMP. Now that MSFN user boooggy has discontinued his fabulous WMP Integrator tool I was thinking it might be a good idea to compile an update list containing the most recent WMP updates (the ones linked to at the bottom of the page). If anyone could do an IE list that would be great too. Also, for the "member-contributed" lists, is there any chance they'll be linked to on the WUD website?
