  1. My mom's computer is a Compaq. The touchpad is really annoying because I have to lift my finger at least twice to go anywhere and the pad doesn't seem very accurate. Even worse, there's no third buton and that makes using Firefox frustrating. I bought a little Logitech mouse today which works great. Btw, I'm glad I'm back. I missed me.
  2. I'm using my mom's new laptop and finally noticed if I rest the pointer on anything selectable (like a true or false choice, lol) it gets selected automatically while I try to come up with the answer. I scored about 112 if I remember. Huge drop from my teens and twenties (I'm 46). Maybe I should let this laptop and its obnoxious Synaptics Touchpad take the test without me...
  3. The report in my previous post was not the one I was thinking of after all. The one I had read before is actually a FEMA report entitled World Trade Center Building Performance Study. It's easy to understand and has some spectacular photography in my opinion. It can be found here. The catch is you have to download each chapter seperately. I've never found it as a single download. To get a good idea of the layout and quality of the study in general you could download Chapter 4. Thanks again and sorry for the mistake.
  4. I looked at the Flash Player section of the Mozilla Add Ons section and it says to install the latest version from the Flash Player website. I found a troubleshooting guide on Adobe's website here. A couple things it mentions are: Popup blockers Security settings This I didn't know. It says the latest version is the first where you have to uninstall any previous versions before installing the new one. It also says all browsers must be closed during installation. Hopefully there is something on the page that is helpful.
  5. I think found the report I was thinking about. It was produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It's mostly technical information and almost 300 pages long but I thought it was interesting. However, I'm not sure how many other people would find it interesting. Maybe you could take a look and see if it's something you think is appropriate for your website. Thanks Final Report of the National Construction Safety Team on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers.
  6. I took a quick look around and will be visiting back again soon. I really like the colors and the setup on the homepage [and the other pages]. The attack map is very interesting but the white background is so bright and the style is quite a bit more basic than the high tech look of the rest of the page so it kind of distracts. It seems to leap off the page. Is there possibly a way to darken the background? I think the 911 pictures and info are very interesting. I used to be almost obsessed with 911 and looking through the pictures brings some of that back. But that's good and that's im
  7. I'm guessing that by filing the lawsuit M$ can now try to get a court order to try to have him identified through his ISP. I'm not one who usually takes the side of a hacker but I think Fair Use is a valid point and you should be able to make at least one copy for a backup.
  8. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. has sued an anonymous computer hacker whose free program allows users to copy digital movies and songs by bypassing a software protection built into the company's Media player. The world's biggest software maker charges the hacker known as "Viodentia" has illegally obtained propriety source code to produce the program called FairUse4WM, sparking fears it could enable consumers to illegally copy digital content.

  9. GREENSBORO, N.C. ? Honda, the Japanese giant that has given the USA motorcycles, cars, lawn mowers and weed whackers, puts its newest product on sale starting next month: a little $3 million business jet. It's a sporty airplane that stands 13 feet tall at the top of its tail, seats six or seven people and flies faster than its closest rivals ? as fast as 480 miles per hour. Its distinctive look comes from top-mounted engines on the wings; an elongated, tapered nose; and a striking pearlescent dark-sky-blue color scheme. Article
  10. Ouch ! You could be right. But I think the more logical reason you think that is Donald Rumsfeld used his Neocon Telekinetic Mind Control Ray Gun on your brain and now he is secretly willing you to do his bidding . I've heard the Discovery Channel is really good but obviously since I have dialup I can't afford cable either. But hey, thanks for reminding me of my pathetic life [AGAIN!] .
  11. This story is just bizarre. Of course I don't really know if it's true or not but if it is it just seems ridiculous. I guess anything is possible nowadays. As a person who dabbled with sportscasting in college, I operated under the impression that my job was sports not politics. Sports were sports and you leave your politics off the air It's a very simple standard. If I want to watch football for three hours, give me football. Unfortunately, ESPN has continuously violated this concept. If ESPN is going to play phony tapes for politicians, then they need to be pressured off the a
  12. TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- Japan's Sharp Corp. said on Wednesday it has developed the world's first liquid crystal display (LCD) panel that allows the viewing of three different images on one screen at the same time. Article
  13. Dude, you really crack me up ! I was even going write in my post that I hoped no one would make fun of my dial up connection or suggest I get broadband but I'm trying to keep my posts shorter so people don't fall asleep or start cursing or leave the forum or blow up their PCs with C4 or worse. No I don't live in the bush. Unless you mean The Land Where Bush is the King. Well I do but I don't have enough money to live here well. If I had enough money I'd move to Sweden or Finland and get a great connection for 32?! Thanks for the laugh !
  14. Thanks Eldmannen! I knew I had seen that somewhere and I couldn't find it by searching. I forgot it was called "Portable." Here is the link Matt1492: CCleaner Portable And welcome to the forum !
  15. To delete the second user account you can go to Control Panel and double click on User Accounts and delete from there. Assuming you can see the icon, lol. [sorry]
  16. I installed Ubuntu Linux and have 1 major problem. With Linux I mean, I have lots of other major problems . Linux didn't detect my dial up modem. I know the problem is that it's a Winmodem [HSP 56 Micromodem made by Aztech] and that for some reason Winmodem manufacturers only want Winmodems to work with Windows. Is there an easy way to get it to work? I've found instructions on the internet, but they are complicated and I don't know Linux well enough to understand how to follow them. Maybe that makes 2 major problems with Linux, lol. My other question would be is that if I get an
  17. I had no idea what TPD was so I had to look it up and thought I would share in case anyone else needed to know. The Thermal Power Dissipations are usually for an entire specific line, and they are the Maximum Watts that a Processor that falls in that category can dissipate under Full Load condition. The 130 nm Athlons 64, for example, have a maximum Thermal Power Dissipation of 89 Watts, however, no Processor actually reach that amount. That is a security measure so Cooler manufacturers make they products to support at least 89 Watts of dissipation that makes that the Athlons 64 run in a s
  18. That seems to be the case with a lot of software [i heard that Vista RC1 was a disaster ] but I've been using Firefox 2.0 Beta 2 for a long time and haven't had any problems and a lot of people on the forum have said the same thing and RC1 has been working well so far, too. One thing with using updated versions of Firefox is that often some of the previously installed extensions become incompatible and are disabled until there are updates for them. Beta 2 and RC1 automatically check for compatibility updates at startup and most [not all, like RIP hasn't been updated for a while] seem to b
  19. Maybe drugs, YouTube, or insanity came into play. Or maybe some combination of the three ... Or maybe he was trying to impress the Penis Pump Judge, lol.
  20. This was on the Yahoo news site: FORT MITCHELL, Ky. - A northern Kentucky man wearing only a thong and carrying a knife allegedly videotaped himself attempting a burglary, then left the tape behind, police said. That evidence ultimately led to his arrest, Fort Mitchell Police Chief Steve Hensley said. Rodney McMillen, 36, of Covington was charged over the weekend with first-degree burglary. "This is a very, very bizarre case, to say the least," Hensley said. McMillen allegedly broke into a woman's apartment about 3 a.m. EDT on Sept. 20, clad in only thong underwear and carrying
  21. I think the difference is that a beta still has known bugs and/or is expected to have some major changes before its final release and an RC is considered very close to the final release version. I guess sometimes they're wrong though and have to release an RC2 or RC3, etc. The funny thing about this update is I installed it and checked to make sure it updated. Then while using it later after it was restarted it was back to version 2.0 Beta 2. Not even sure how that could happen. I reinstalled the update and it's back to 2.0 [RC1} so hopefully it's OK now .
  22. LONDON (Reuters) - Jack Neal briefly became the proud owner of a pink convertible car after he managed to buy it for 9,000 pounds ($17,000) on the Internet despite being only three years old. Jack's mother told the BBC she had left her password for the eBay auction site in her computer and her son used the "buy it now" option to complete the purchase. "Jack's a whiz on the PC and just pressed all the right buttons," Rachel Neal said. The seller of the second-hand car, a dealer from Worcestershire, central England, was amused by the bid and agreed not to force the sale throu
  23. SAN FRANCISCO - Intel Corp. plans to begin shipping microprocessors that have four computing engines on a single chip — products that analysts say will help it win back market share from rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. The first chip, the Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor, will be available in November. Intel says it will deliver a 70 percent performance improvement over Intel's current chips, which have one or two computing cores. The new chip is aimed at gamers, programmers and other people with heavy-duty computing needs. For general consumers, Intel will ship a quad
  24. Thanks Tony, interesting article. I'd love to know what application he used to evaluate and display the booting process.
  25. If you disable Services at Startup it's best to only change one at a time so you can easily see if there are problems. If you change several it can be hard to see which one is causing an issue because many Services depend on other Services to run so stopping one can cause others not to work right. If you think there's an issue you can look in Event Viewer and it will sometimes have additional information about what's going on.
