    Don't shout at your hard drives..

    he only mentions JBOD. i wonder if some forms of raid would somehow be more resistant?

    Power Usage: What'cha Usin'?

    hmm, good idea! but that means i have to learn how to get the device to monitor usage over time. i know it does it, but i've never used that function. off and hibernate would use the same amount of power. i would bet that, from a electricity usage standpoint, it would be better to use...

    Howdy

    crazy! kind of scary to think that they were able to find your name and phone number after seeing you in a video. did you give the camera guy a cut?

    i'm using Win7 x64 RC to connect to Win7 x64 RC. I just tried turning off the firewall on both machines and i get the same error. i've tried TightVNC and Ultra VNC before and don't remember why I didn't use them. guess it's time to try again... ~a while later...~ okay, TightVNC seems to...

    best free VNC software?

    this is all i get. i made sure all the "remote desktop" and "remote access" services were started on both machines.

    best free VNC software?

    i swore i asked this a long time ago and i can't find the thread and a search for "VNC" doesn't turn up anything. since the free version of realvnc doesn't work on Win7, what's the best program to use? something leightweight and simple is good. i would like to use the built-in remote desktop...

    can i get a disc image of 7?

    yeah, i got that far... ... but i would like to have the "ultimate" discs, both 32 and 64-bit, so i can install any version since i have both a home premium and professional key now.

    can i get a disc image of 7?

    well, i figured how to make a bootable ISO out of the files i DL'd when i purchased it... which basically seems to be the same thing you have linked. nice to have if i need the 32-bit version, though. thanks. will they work for retail and upgrade keys?

    can i get a disc image of 7?

    i have a legit home premium key that i bought through the student deal, but no disc. what's a good way to get a complete, virgin, safe 64-bit image? is it legal to do this or should i pay $13 to MS for them to send me one?
