    I can haz leet - how many you can remember in ONE day?

    Seriously - I got a bit freaked the other day, things kept telling me I was leet! Firstly I was doing some fundraising and as you can see there (unless my sister has donated and taken it up!); the total raised was £1,337. Then later that day I got a couple of pay slips (where I work is a...

    opera master password lost

    now I have simply remembered the password I believe... But I am for sure unable to figure out the complex way Opera handles this stuff.... may revert to FFox just for simplicities sake although I like many other features of Opera....

    opera master password lost

    Many thanks guys - OSNN seems to be a little livelier, at least if this thread is any indication! I've actually made a post on the Opera forum - if I get useful intel there I shall post it back here if time...

    opera master password lost

    Well - it may not be - can anyone advise the Opera restrictions on password, like length and spcial char stuff? Then maybe I can remember it.... alternatively should that fail - anyone know a reset or similar or should I just rip the thing out and go again?

    Anyone heard of Yoggie?

    interesting - slightly OT but the guy working for/with me is writing a dummy's guide on security now which I'll likely put up on the comm-tech website so I'll try to add it here for opinions when it's done. anyone else heard of the Yoggie and, more importantly, the way it "died" or flopped?

    Anyone Heard of ECS Brand

    ECS = ok - see a fair few of them through for refurbishing computers - seldom is it the mobo that died, so they go out again OK, not too hard to get drivers for either, so they work for me (then again I stopped buying gear years ago now... it just comes to me and they have to pay for me to take...

    Anyone heard of Yoggie?

    It's some code on a USB stick - read a review from 2008 here... Why do I mention it? Well a client came in yesterday with a laptop asking us to install it for them... actually they claimed the PC had been borked and would need a reinstall due to their attempts, but it turned out all was...

    Simple content update

    I am (yet again) setting up a site, a very simple site, for some folks. You can see the Beta (very early) here and I am about to implement something so that there can be minimal CMS capability. I want to keep it very simple. So the only updated page will be the one that links to a document...

    LCD problem on a Dell M1330

    We have one of these in for repair ATM - shame you are not in the UK - I could have brokered a salvage operation to sacrifice on of these to make a good one from parts ;) (Problem with the one in for repair is different issue - PSU or mobo shorting, no power up.)

    Tell me if I am mad - server in a shed

    Well - I suspect this is a crazy idea - but anyway I have just moved and although I have a server (thanks Lord) there is no where to put it. At the moment it is in my office, and I have negotiated plugging it in there - but to SSH in and so forth is less than ideal with my current ISP and they...

    Two head up on Dell optiplex 620

    * NEWSFLASH * I now have a working PCIX gfx card. I do not (yet) have two heads up :( why? well the Y cable I got is fine on the VGA side, but on the other (DVI) socket there are a single bunch of pin outs and not two groups of four with the slot on the end - so my DVI monitor cable will not...

    Two head up on Dell optiplex 620

    EEEK! after placing the order I checked in BIOS screen and it is not showing up at all far as I see...I am wondering if I have bought an adaptor for a dead graphics card,,,, or worse yet that the AGP slot is dead - anyone recommend a half height PCIX graphics option for dual head in case I need...

    Two head up on Dell optiplex 620

    I just bought one of these - hoping it will work since I am running Lucid Lynx 64 bit on one of these dual core Dells and so far everything is hunky dory except I want a two head up display and there seems to be a dongle thinger I need with the Radeon X600 or whatever graphics card they seem to...

    I pwn money (maybe)

    long time no post - after about five years withh zero disposable income soon I shall have some (yay!). immediately I find I feel a powerful urge to build myself a somewhat more state of the art desktop and I am so out of date I thought I should come here for tips - the only item I could...

    Print a visual tree of a directory structure?

    there is afabulour program to do this - and ONE of my posts mentions it! I cannot remember the name, except it has tree in it... but it maps out all the spaces on your HD and makes a block diagram all colour coded and intelligent... least it looked that way to me - try scroogling something like...
