    OSNN Firewall Poll

    I used to use Zone Alarm, but after a while it forgot ALL of it's settings and refused to remember them ever again. Unistalled, and I just sit behind my Linksys router/firewall now.

    Alternative to Ad-Shield for Opera?

    I've recently switched to Opera for the tabbed browsing capability. I hate all those IE items on the taskbar :/ I've really gotten used to using Ad-Shield to block banners/ads & servers at will, is there a way I can do that with Opera? Loading banners etc. is making it slower than IE +...

    File & printer share refuse to work over network

    :D That anime is just to wierd not to be cool... Oh, and what gave me away? Was it the Lain reference or the subtley anime-themed sig pic? ;P Anyways... A ping to the computer name fails. A ping to the computer's IP address succeeds. I can tell it's getting an IP address by looking...

    File & printer share refuse to work over network

    I only included what was going wrong, since everything else works... LAN games, internet access, etc. Plus, I didn't think they had any effect on this particular feature of windows networking.... In other words, try to avoid writing an essay on the subject. Router: Linksys...

    Minimize to Active Desktop

    Yowch, that's a stinker lol Try asking in the programming section too, I'm guessing you'd need a language such as Visual Basic 6 or higher, or C++ to do that. I don't know of any "web" languages that can do it, but then again I don't really "know" any web languages :p

    the picture before the Windows XP Boot screen

    There should be an option like "Silent boot" in the BIOS. That's how I disabled the damn TINY logo on my laptop.

    XP (sometimes) fails to use a re-dialled connection

    OK, like many UK 56K-ers I'm on ntlworld 'cos it's cheap. Annoyingly, it has the 2-hour cut off. This usually just results in a quiet curse and a click of "re-dial", but recently it's caused XP to fail to access internet resources after re-dialling. Not ONE BIT of data will be transferred no...

    Mozilla Vs Internet Explorer!!

    Well I could change it so that I don't need a prefix at all, so nyah! :P erm, anyway... back to something resemlbing intellectual debate: People are complaining that IE tries to compensate for coding errors. Excuse me, but it that such a bad thing? Programmers are human. Humans make...

    Mozilla Guide please

    I'm assuming that mozilla sticks the tabs inside it's own window rather than using the main windows taskbar? I can see that as an advantage since I'm limited to 1024x769 resolution (TFT laptop screen), and programs like Visual Studio and Dreamweaver, not to mention IM windows (AIM, MSN, ICQ...

    Mozilla Vs Internet Explorer!!

    Yes, it would be nice if those options were available on install, particularly tabbed browsing. It's quite unlikely that MS will officially support freeware like ad-shield though. Ad-shield is the only extra I have installed, and it was painless in the extreme to install and get used to, so I...

    Mozilla Vs Internet Explorer!!

    The two issues I want to answer here are the tabbed browsing and ad-blocking absent in IE...... which can easily fixed by installing an addon for each problem. I love Adshield. Maximum effect, minimum effort. Perfection in programming? The only ad I don't block is the crucial one on...

    Making a very nice site!

    Hehe, sometimes I just don't bother to make my words sound nice, just go for brutally honest. In short, my point was that if your site doesn't look nice, no-one will bother looking at it for more than a few seconds.
