    Logitech Media Mouse

    Creating hi-res graphics

    I'm not sure if it's possible, but is there any way (using any kind of program) to make a graphic a higher resolution? I'm using a logo for some letterhead and I need to resize it to a larger picture, but when I do it gets all blurry an' stuff. So can it be done? Any help is GREAT. :D ~JM

    From OE to Hotmail

    So I normally use the web version of Hotmail for all my e-mailing needs (until someone gets nice enough to invite me to Gmail! Any takers?) but I decided to try going through Outlook Express just to see how it was. Well, it turns out that I didn't like it very much, but I've run into a...

    So after I've installed Doom 3 on my machine and try to run it, all I get is the groovy spalsh screen and nothing else. It just stays there. After waiting about 5 minutes to make sure that it wasn't going to start, I tried using other applications, and they ran fine, which to me says that Doom 3...

    Icon Text

    Is there a way to make certain icons not have text beneath them? I'm thinking mainly my desktop icons, since I know what they are and I don't really need the words underneath. :) ~JM

    MP3 Playback volume

    Some of my MP3 files play at a much lower volume level than some others. Why is this? Is there a way to fix this? If I need to re-rip some things, that's fine, but I'd like to know how to rip them properly in WMP9 so that this doesn't happen again. :) ~JM

    Firewire/IDE Security Device

    I was looking around on Newegg's website and I came across a pretty cool device: It's an adapter and PCI card that attaches to your IDE hard drive. It came with two IEEE1394 6-pin "keys". Basically, you had to have one of the keys plugged into the PCI card it comes with to unlock the PC to...

    Logitech Mice

    Alright, So right now I have the Logitech Dual Optical Mouse. I'm considering getting the new Logitech Performance MX510 (Blue) Mouse when it arrives here in town. But a technician buddy of mine said that the Dual Optical is still faster based upon the types of "eyes" that it's using...

    Ripping to MP3 in WMP9

    I'm trying to re-rip all my music into MP3 format vs. wma, but WMP9 only seems to want to rip it in WMA. Is there a plug-in or other file that I can use to do this? I want to do everything in WMP9, because I'm a stickler for using what I'm comfortable with. :P I'm doing this because I won an...

    Dual Layer DVD Writers

    So what's the scoop here? I've heard that some companies are set to release writers that support dual-layer discs. Is this true? Anyone know of manufacturers and potential dates/prices of release of these drives? Inquiring minds want to know! ~JM

    .bin/.cue/.iso files

    A friend of mine wrote some CD's for me, backing up some of my hard-to-find software. Only problem is, he backed them up to the CD's as .bin/.cue, and some as .iso. I don't have a CD burner, so how can I "get" to these programs when I need to? Thanks. ~JM

    WMP9 Album Art

    I was wondering how (if?) it is possible to change the "Album Art" in the "Now Playing" info center in WMP9. Basically I've got a lot of CD's (game soundtracks, mostly) that I ripped onto my PC but the album art wasn't ever loaded into Microsoft's little album database. Therefore, I have this...
