  1. Need a way to resize NTFS partitions, mirror disk images, or otherwise muck about with disk partitions -- and don't want to use a proprietary package like Partition Magic? If so, the GNOME Partition Editor (GParted) is an excellent open source tool for the task. The GParted team released the GParted live CD version 0.2.4-2 this month, so I decided it was a good time to take GParted for a spin. GParted handles Ext2, Ext3, FAT16, FAT32, JFS, ReiserFS, Reiser4, NTFS, XFS, and other filesystem formats. At a bare minimum, GParted can detect, read, copy, and create partitions using those file systems -- and, in some cases, can shrink, expand, and move partitions. See the features page on the GParted site for the full rundown on GParted's capabilities. http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/04/25/1917228
  2. You can use BBIE to extract the boot image from your Windows CD.
  3. The research note on the Gartner site says that what makes the Sony BMG incident even more unfortunate, is that the DRM technology can be defeated easily. The user can simply apply a fingernail-sized piece of opaque tape to the outer edge of the disc, rendering session 2 - which contains the self-loading DRM software, unreadable. The PC then treats the CD as an ordinary single-session music CD, and the commonly used CD "rip" programs continue to work as usual. (Gartner emphasizes that it does not recommend or endorse this technique.) http://www.techtree.com/techtree/jsp/artic...9297&cat_id=582
  4. The top and left rows are used as parity bits, for error correction. The remaining dots in the grid are used to convey information about the document and its source, including printer model, printer configuration, printer serial number, and the date and time the page was printed. http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20051018-5447.html
  5. Check out the Macro Reference section of the AutoIt help file. %SYSTEMDRIVE% is @HomeDrive %PROGRAMFILES% is @ProgramFilesDir
  6. Many fans of digital video recorders made by TiVo Inc. are beginning to fear that Hollywood studios will one day reach into their set-top boxes to restrict the way they record and store movies and programs. Among the functions included in TiVo's latest software upgrade is the ability to allow broadcasters to erase material recorded by TiVo's 3.6 million users after a certain date. That ability was demonstrated recently when some TiVo customers complained on TiVo community sites that episodes of "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill" they recorded were "red-flagged" for deletion by the copyright holder. http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory?id=1148014

  8. You'll have to look elsewhere. According to dvdshrink.org, DVD Shrink "IS NO MORE!"

  10. If you're using the corporate version of Ghost you can add Ghost32 to PEBuilder. This will give allow you to use all the network card drivers that ship with XP. You can also check 911CD.net for additional drivers.
  11. I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but it should do what you're looking for: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=49184
  12. I have the following script added to RunOnce... DisableDNS.vbs Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") Set NIC = GetObject("winmgmts:").ExecQuery ("select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration") for each instance in NIC if instance.ipenabled then WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\"&instance.settingid&"\RegistrationEnabled", 0, "REG_DWORD" end if next
  13. I chose 'don't want to pay for it'. Not that the service doesn't hold a value. I have too many email accounts as it is. The poll was a waste though. It got me to donate $20USD (too lazy to convert that into Euros) .
  14. Looks like CoolWebSearch is taking a more dangerous turn... http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20050805-5175.html
