  1. upon consulting with friends I think i've reached a solution. I wasn't quite aware about how to make a cd bootable and my moms pc which i was falling back on wasn't burning disk images right. With any luck this should be enough to fix the install medium
  2. this is going to be brief but i've got a virus on my current version of windows in the other room and the cd burner in this room is broken down and only thru a major privacy breach do I have access to any other machinery. I've decided to nlite a new install and practice safer practices to evade viruses in the future given the dumbness i now realized with which most worms bind themselves to executables. But it's got some major concerns. See I don't trust my virus scanner to of cleaned all of it especially when it's reporting "probably a variant of" and my major concern is this: is there any way that virus could be grabbing hold of my executables to slipstream into the install cd i'm being FORCED to make on the bad version of windows? small details: Antiviral software: nod 32 Windows Version: Windows Xp 64 Bit. Nlite: Latest. Got it on the page TODAY. am in safemode rescanning. Doesn't matter, given the movement of the hackers in the virus culture is always 6 steps ahead of the scanners at this point I don't exactly trust it's results and I want a fresh format anyways. Needless to say I don't respect most hackers becasue they're too stupid to do a decent bind of a virus to an executable but I know some really good ones and they bloody scare me.
  3. what really irks me is that when I read up on the operating system they made mention of things like how the OS itself is going to make use of the Video card GPU, etc. the Size in Term of bytes about the operating system isn't what bothers me, it's that it's going to be infested with crap that puts a strain on my memory and my video processing and CPU for more or less no benefit except fancy visuals and supposed user-friendliness. The industry has gone -way- too far trying to make things user friendly with big red flashing lights with huge sounds and the end result is that it's bloated with crap that does little more but slow you down. If you don't understand windows the way it was originally set up in Windows 95, You never will. Just give up. Almost everything was built to be completely self explainatory and yet people still need guides because they're afraid they might break something or the like. But that's just part of using a PC. You'll never be good at it unless you break something and learn how to fix it. I started to use pcs at the tender age of 8 years old. It was easy for me. I never reffered to a single guide in my entire experience. To say that I had an advantage because I was so young so getting used to the idea really irks me too. That's just an excuse for intellectual laziness. those of us who understand what's going on have given everyone else a billion guides and security warnings etc told people what to watch out for, and yet the same stuff keeps happening. At what point do we stop being sympathetic?
  4. Well, sense all the bell's and whistles seem to be done for now until Vista, I think Ryan, nuhi, and gurgle should team up and make it so their update packs can be tweaked too with nlite. It's the age of customization eh? That's just my idea, nuhi, ryan, and gurgle can feel free to slap me if they want.
  5. 1.07b? that isn't even out yet, unless you're working with an internal beta. 1.06 is the latest.
