  1. Recently, I have created a program that I want to get hosted on some sort of site and allow people to download it for free. I also would like to release the source code. I have looked into a variety of options and googled for hours but I havent really come up with anything that fits my needs. Here is a run down of what I have looked into. -open source project hosts such as Sourceforge and Novellforge: the problem with these is that they have a stipulation that the program must run on a free operating system and the program i made only runs on Windows (because it was created using the .Net Framework and I know there is a .NET equivalent in Linux and other systems but it doesnt support Windows Forms) -upload.com - i believe it requires a website and a direct link for a download (this leads to my next option and therefore is a problem) -free web space hosting - the problem with this is that bandwidth is usually limited and sometime file size is limited plus most dont allow you to host an .exe( the setup file) so i guess my most basic question is, what is a good place to publish free software for Windows Operating Systems? Thanks in advance.
  2. The XP Network Setup Wizard doesn't work to well on Windows 98SE in fact it screws up a working network setup on a 98SE machine. Configure it manually on the 98 machine. Also i think DHCP here might mean that the computer should be set to automatically retrieve a ip from the gateway.
  3. There is a worm associated with this process and error. Its name is Sasser (i think). Google the error message for more info.
  4. Google could definitely come out on top in the free mail account category (atleast against microsoft and hotmail) Recently, I set up a new hotmail account because I was bored of my old account name (I've had it for about 6 years). I had used outlook express with my old account almost the entire time that I used the old account and I had no complaints about the account. But when I tried to set up the new Hotmail account with Outlook express it said that hotmail no longer allows accounts to be accessed with outlook express. This is a very drastic move on Microsoft's part because Gmail offers free pop access. Also Gmail was just released to the public recently and this move could be a catostrophe for microsoft. Just another case of microsoft trying to get the most money out of its efforts as it can. (on a side note, i dont think to many people are using all of the space they are offered in gmail. i have about 90 emails on gmail and i am using 0% of my space. i think google is banking on the idea that people arent going to use all the space they offer)
  5. Thanks a lot for the info. I can now look forward to learning more about VB .NET and other .NET languages.
  6. Recently, I have got into learning VB .NET and I was wondering if the .NET Framework is "standard" on Windows XP. If not, is Microsoft planning on making the .NET Framework 2.0 standard when they release it. I was thinking it could be a waste of my time to learn the language if it isn't standard on the majority of computers.
  7. VideoLAN for video. It can basically play any video format out there. It is amazing. If a new format is created the creators are usually really quick to support the new format.
  8. Problem Solved! I finally was able to find the process that was causing the trouble. The process was mscorsvw.exe. It appears that it was installed by the new .NET Framework Beta 2 and the process compiles assemblies needed for the .NET Framework after installation. Also it only starts to run when the computer is idle so that is why my screensaver would appear to freeze. It will supposedly finish all of its work in a short amount of time if it is let to run so I plan on doing that and see if it helps. Thanks to all for the help.
  9. The problem is I can't get the temp for my gpu, I searched google for a while and I couldn't come up with anything about my gpu and temp monitoring. But I don't think it has something to do with the video card because I run games like Half Life 2 fine with out locking up, why would a simple screensaver lock it up. I believe the issue is with my computer idling, I came back tonight to my idle computer to find that the cpu was running at 41 C (I should also add that the mobo temp was quite low). and while I am using the comp my cpu temp is 31 C. Maybe it could be a process eating up cpu usage but again as soon as I come back from idle none of the processes are using any of the cpu(or there cpu usage is 0). EDIT: I also just checked all of my processes running using Spybot. I found nothing out the ordinary.
  10. It's the 3D Text screensaver. Does this use OpenGL? Also I don't think it is the screensaver because I have been using it for a long time and it hasn't caused problems before.
  11. SPECS: ASUS K8N-E AMD Athlon64 3200+ Seagate SATA 120gb ANTEC 350W psu GeForce FX 5700LE ATI TV Tuner 1gb Corsair Value Select Problem: The screensaver will come on and run for about a minute, then it freezes. When I make the screensaver stop after letting it run for a while, the cpu temperature will be very high for my system(45 C, normally 35 C). I know that these temps are low, but the processor runs at around 41 C at full usage. Another weird thing is that as soon as I come out of the screensaver, I have checked the cpu usage and it is 0%. I ran a virus and spyware scan and I don't think I have installed any new software that would be conflicting with the screensaver. Thanks in Advance.
  12. I was thinking about this some time ago and I just recently remembered the idea. Anyway. The XP has been thought to mean a bunch of different things which include XPerience. But what about a reference to Roman History(actually its more of legend) People are familiar with the Emperor Constantine of the Roman Empire. He named a city after himself and made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire. There is a legend why he made Christianity the official religion. He believed that Christ helped him come to power. The legend goes that a night before a very large battle, Constantine had a dream where Christ spoke to him and Christ told him to write the greek letters Chi and Rho, or XP, on his troops shields the next day for the battle. Constantine did this and his army completely slaughtered the opposers even though he was supposedly outnumbered greatly. So maybe is there a connection that the XP in Windows XP has a historical reference and this historical reference could signify how Microsoft feels about Windows "XP" and what it was suppose to do to the competition(if there was any at all)? Here is a link to Wikipedia, it explains the legend in more detail. Battle of Milvian Bridge Just a useless but interesting connection...
  13. This worked for me when I wanted to resize a partition and install Windows XP 64bit. Plus it is handy if you ever have to deal with system crashes and booting problems. It has a Partition Magic clone. Also its completely free! System Rescue CD (Ignore the stuff about just being for Linux, works fine with Windows) It's my preference, but it's your choice...
  14. Problem Solved! I cleared the CMOS on my BIOS and now the ethernet is functioning perfectly. Thanks for the tip, though.
