  1. Use nero most of the time but have added cdburner xp pro to my unattanded. Its free and has most features you want from a burner package. http://www.cdburnerxp.se
  2. The extention is called switchproxy and is avaialbel from the extentions site at this link http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ext....2-fx+mz+tb.xpi (its easier to do it that way, this one is up to date)
  3. A mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer and a computer engineer are driving through the desert when their jeep breaks down. They all get out to anayse whats wrong. The mechanical engineer says "its probably the engine, these things have a habit of overheating, even on a wet cold day.". The electrical engineer syas "No you have it all wrong, its an electrical problem. These things are so old the wires just distintigrate when you hit any kind of bump.". The computer engineer says " I dont care what the problem is. If we shut all the open windows and restart that will fix the problem, believe me I work for microsoft".
  4. Looking great guys, I am hoping to get my desktop up to this level soon (am reading graphix tuts at the mo to improve the graphix skills then will post when finished.

    slow pc

    ounds to me that windows is not handing back the ram after programs are run (or there is something hogging the ram). Get a program like ramidle which you can use to boost your ram levels.
  6. Put transxp.exe in $OEM$\$$\system32 and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] UIHost="%systemroot%\system32\transxp.exe" in your registry tweak file.
  7. (Sorry, am half asleep. That will disable mouse over on a web page. Not sure about windows [probably a registry tweak])
  8. Disable Javascript in your browser. It will get rid of the pop-up decriptions, but also wont allow any fancy navigation on other sites.
  9. i've always used a text editor. so my vote goes for notepad (like coding. makes the page load as quick as possible, no code in a page that isnt required and also all scripts contained in a page written by me so i can debug them quicker).
  10. Great info, but i think i'll stick to the for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\unattend.txt set CDROM=%%i: methad. This allows me to have an unattended install disk with default progs to be insatlled, but also allows me to check for a second cd in a drive that has more software on it. The second cd can change its contents and all i have to do is to keep the txt file the same. e.g. for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\unattend.txt set CDROM=%%i: ..... ..... for %%j in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%j:\software.txt call %%j:\setup.cmd This means i can use the unattend for more than one PC (dont worry the cd-key is requested, and not embeded in the winnt.sif file), with the second disk containing the software i require for the pc's on the second disk (as you dont always want to install the same software on different pc's)
  11. Nice site. From a graphics point of , i would have all images as progresssive jpegs or some other progressive loading image. tHis way if someone is on a dial-up or slow connection they can see the picture (with it getting better definition over time) rather than having a line of the picture every so often. I would say that the colours are a little dark, try to brighten tehm up a bit, have a few more colours in the page. The reason i say this is that it starins the eyes to look at a dark page too long.
  12. cant download the package so can see if I can create a solution. As stated before though, upx is just an exe compressor. it doesnt have an insatll wizard or anything built in (so it is probasbly the underlying package that is causing the problem)
  13. Open wordpad or another txt editor with replace capabilities Do search and replace, replace , with ",". Replace the last field {filed N) with FieldN" Replace Field1 with "Field1 This should do it for you.
  14. cdrecord works well, can be a bit akward finding the right command switches though. http://cdrecord.berlios.de/old/private/cdrecord.html
  15. Is the project currently running with command line. I have no problem creating a GUI for a command line program (just need to know the switches and a graphic of the layout concept would be nice). I can send you a program or two I have written with GUI's. I use a C++ library called wxWigets (used to be wxWindows). This is a cross compatible C++ library that is free to use, and is also easy to use.
  16. Just a note for those who use outpost. I just tried to install it and it worked great. Problem was thought, it told me to update and now i have outpost pro which is a 30 day trial. So if you use outpost dont update, or use a firewall that doesnt require a full purchase to update it. (Sorry dont know if this has been said alreday. forgot to check when posting)
  17. Live CD means no installation. The way they work is to decompress the required programs into ram and allow the linux system to call programs and files from the cd on the fly. Some Live Cd's create a small temp file on a hrad drive while running which is deleted when the system is switched off, but most do not require a HD at all.
  18. Forgot to look in the development center. Remembered there was a page with links Thanks
  19. Tried a search and couldnt find any info. Could anyone please tell me of any good sites with free tutorials for -> Photoshop -> The GIMP I would like to learn to make my own icons and background images for modding my UBCD and my Unattanded Win XP Cd. Every site i go to through google has tutorials like "How to create bullet holes" or "How to create 3D Text". I would like a site or two that would allow me to learn from scratch how to create kick a$$ graphics. can currently use an image editor to create ok buttons and banners for web sites, but would like a site that tells everything so i can jump in at the beggining (and reviewing what i alreday know from trial and error) and with learning the stuff I need to know. (its nice to use someones icons to make windows look good, but its also nice to be able to create your own unique look)
  20. Officially my native tongue is Irish (gaeilge) but i have been speaking english longer than i have irish. Dont mean to be pendantic but the question was what is your native tongue
  21. If you use daemon tools to mount an iso of the play disk it will let you know if it wont run because of a cd check or if it is a corrupt file created by the no-cd patch
