    XP SP2 and local pages/scripts

    Hello all, been a long time since I've been here, but hopefully everyone is still as friendly as they used to be... I have recently installed SP2 on my XP box and when I try to view locally saved web pages that have any type of scripting, I get the information bar asking me to allow or...

    Where to find P3 Xeon CPUs?

    Title sums it up... What is the fastest Intel 100MHz FSB PIII Xeon available and where can I buy them? The company I work for uses servers with dual 700MHz PIII Xeon CPU's (100 FSB). We use these servers for some pretty intensive Crystal queries and have found as time goes on that they...

    Download MP3 Store?

    I don't really know where to put this since there isn't a "media" forum, but here goes... I checked out some of those Napster-like stores as well as Napster itself, but they don't give much info. What I'm looking for is a place where I can download and pay for a song without having to use the...

    Stupid Computer >:(

    Well, I just thought I'd share my misfortune with you all. I was surfing the net Saturday afternoon when my PC suddenly shut down. No warning, no BSOD, just died. So, thinking I must have had a blurb in the power (not thinking that the whole while my monitor stayed on :rolleyes: ), I turned it...

    Men strike back

    Ok, before you read this, some women may find it offensive, although my wife laughed at some so they can't be all that bad... Q: How many men does it take to open a beer? A: None. It should be opened when she brings it. Q: Why is a Laundromat a really bad place to pick up a woman? A...

    Women's a$$ size study...

    There is a new study out about women and how they feel about their a$$. I thought the results were pretty interesting: 85% of women think their a$$ is too big... 10% of women think their a$$ is too little... The other 5% say that they don't care - they love him and would have...

    ATX standards...

    I'm looking into building my own unique case (don't ask, I want to post pictures when done) and I'd like to make it to allow upgrades. So, I'm looking for a place that lists the ATX standards for mobos, PS, etc. Things like standard mounting standoff locations, max sizes for mobos/PS, and such...

    Midtown Madness 3 ???

    Anyone hear anything about M$ porting MM3 for the PC? The latest info I can find is dated around May of '03. I had read that M$ was going to release this game for the PC, but there hasn't been any news; nothing on the M$ site or any other game sites that I have checked out.

    Installing Win98 on an old Laptop

    A guy at work called me and asked how he could install 98 on an old laptop. The trouble is that it can only have a CDROM -or- a floppy attached at once. Plus, the CDROM cannot be made bootable in BIOS. I told him to try to make a win98 boot disk, boot without CDROM support (since the CDROM is...

    Stupid Game Question.

    I generally like to play driving games, but I'd like to try something else. I find myself playing Winmine when I get bored with driving fast, and that has to stop! I've played MOHAA and liked it alot except for the controls. I hate using keyboard controls. Maybe most people can adapt to using a...

    Lite-on dying?

    For a while now, my Lite-on 52/24/52x drive has been acting a little funny. In Nero, it takes a long time (~2 minutes) before it will start actually recording. During that time, I can hear it spin up, then down, up, down, etc, and finally it will start recording. At first I thought it was...

    MP3 tag creator

    I tried searching the forums, but because the 4-letter-or-more search limitation, it didn't leave me with many options... Anyway, I have a bunch of MP3's that I have ripped from CDs (that I do own), but they have no tag data. Is there an ID tagger out there that will create the tags from the...

    Contemplating RAID0 with sata...

    I am seriously toying with getting a couple of raptors and a SATA Raid card (merry Christmas to me :)), but I'm not sure which RAID card to get for the system in my sig. I have SATA on-board but it's the SIL chip and I've heard nothing good about it. So I thought I'd get a SATA PCI RAID card...

    Need a power supply mounting bracket

    I'm doing a little project and need an ATX power supply mounting bracket. I was trying to make one similar to the PS bracket on my Lian-li, but it doesn't look as good. I know I could probably buy a cheap case and cut out the section I need, but that's kind of a waste... I've looked around...

    NFS-Underground and my vid card issue

    I seem to be having some issue with my vid card (9800Pro) and this game. It runs and plays fine except some of the text, notably speedometer, gear display, and several other text objects appear as blocks instead of text. It's weird because some text looks fine. I also notice the mouse pointer...

    WAP Question...

    I currently have a router/4 port switch (Linksys BEFSR41) and all the ports are filled. Now, I want to get an 802.11g WAP with 4 more CAT5 ports, but the only one I can find also has a router. I will be using the uplink port on my existing router/switch, but I don't want to use the router...

    nVidia driver permissions...

    My kid's PC is using my old GF4 Ti4400 card and the 44.xx drivers. The drivers installed ok, but I cannot select the level of AA I want for all their profiles. If I log in as Admin, I can change it and it works for me. As soon as I log into one of their (restricted) accounts, the AA setting I...

    Weird Floppy Access Issue

    I noticed this when I was burning a CD (with Nero) yesterday, which is the first time I've burnt a CD with my new GA-7N400Pro board. The CD burning process was taking longer than it used to and I also noticed the floppy drive light would turn on often even though there was no disk in the drive...

    Autoplay...

    Not sure where exactly to put this... You know when you insert CD's of different types (data, music, DVD, etc) windows pops up and asks you what you want to do? Well, I want to disable the autoplay for all types all at once for both my CDRW and DVD drive. Is there a reg entry that can...
