GreenMachine Posted September 28, 2003 Share Posted September 28, 2003 pmcx9: I know what you mean: I, too, am very lazy.I'd say you are well on your way. I think I have all the visual settings restored correctly on my box, though I have not gone over it with a fine toothed comb. I have not played with the power stuff, and there may be some sort of hardware dependecies, so you tell us. If I may be so bold ... a few things I would like to see in a "small time system builder":Insurance, a la MS. You keep your install CD up to date, and send 'em one a month. For a certain fee ...Safe system restore. Create a 2/3 partition system: [1 = Diagnostics], 2 = System, 3 = Data, all loaded onto a "clean" HDD from CD (ghost or such - there are even enough freewares). You can use the CD or Diagnostics partition to restore the system, and leave the data intact, in the case of chronic user "install everything I can download". You would need to make sure the partitions are active/non-hidden, etc, as well as defining user's directories (i.e. "My Documents") are stored on the D (Data) disk. None of this is too difficult, and once in place, fairly maintenance free.My reasoning is that if you do not have a large customer base, you need to get more $$ per customer, while offering a quality service that they are satisfied with, and happy to pay for. You recover 2 years, or even two months of some one's data, and you are (rightfully so) their hero.Just a thought. Let us know how you get on with the last steps.
