  1. I'm not entirely sure of LG electronics is an "Off Brand" but the one i have here is good. (lower priced means about 350 euros) The first one i got was not that good on color and had some dead pixels, and i could switch it for a new one for free. The guarantees are a thing you have to look for as well. LG flatron L1915S here.
  2. The advertisement is not about the car. "Need Glasses?" "Your Opticien" (or glasses salesman)
  3. I'm using the windows 2000/classic interface of windows till i can get something that looks good and takes even less room.
  4. I can tell you that other "Legacy" software (Photoshop release 5 and lower, illustrator 8 and lower) can't handle more than 512 mb ram at all. but windows 95 can deal with up to 2 GB. look here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q181594/
  5. I wonder, why would anyone reduce the performance of a cpu? Are there advantages in stability or cooling?
  6. Interesting idea, because here (Holland), downloading things is legal. Uploading copyrighted material, that isn't owned by you, however is not legal. We have some civil research organizations who are like the RIAA, or at least pretend to be like them, but they only threaten with going to court, and hope they can bluff themselves trough, becuase they know just like most other people here that they won't have a case that can be used successfully. The matter that the IRAA wins in court is becuase they have a near unlimited financial back-up to continue the process, and that isn't a benefit most people have when they are faced with charges that are not sufficiently backed up, but are brought to you by a "really expensive lawyer with good looking looks and suitTM ®".
  7. Gee... Why am i considering to roll back to windows 2000 all of a sudden, and just patch the hell out of that. I'm not going to upgrade, and i bet there is an online activation tied into vista as well. Too bad i spent too much money on windows only software o make a transfer to linux. (and i don't like mac)
  8. I'm not going to watch it. (need to go to the dentist and will have 2 sets of wisdomteeth removed in a couple of weeks)
  9. I use a slipstreamed windows xp sp2 install cd. (basically any windows xp cd can be reworked to become one.) http://www.theeldergeek.com/slipstreamed_xpsp2_cd.htm <-- follow that one for detailed instructions. (I really need to make one for windows 2000 + sp4 and the rollup patches too)
  10. So thats what the handle is for... Better grip to toss them!
  11. Started off with a C64 (specs obvious, but can't recall them at the moment) 2nd was a Philips 9100, XT type pc, and a whole 30 megs of harddrive, unknown processor 3rd: Dell, Pentium 200 mhz mmx, 32 mb ram, 3 GB harddrive, 4mb matrox millennium I videocard those were my first computerers
  12. Easy thing to start: buy a second hand old pc. The remove everything except the buttons and the flopydrive (!) and leave the wires from the buttons in place as well. Make sure to find the right lay-out for the wires to hook up the switches and lights. If you have an AT case, be prepared to do some sawing in the case to make things fitting for the connections. Philipshead screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, motherboard raising studs, screws <-- all needed too.
  13. you mean thatxp sp1 is ot affected by this then? I'm not too certain about that. Just healthy paranoia towards virusses, and even if i dislike some of the marketing of MS, i believe their intention is not to hinder you in your computer usage.
  14. Solution the easy way: go to the windows file options and remove any program assignment to files with the wmf extention so it won't be opened/executed automatically. You stil can access your normal wmf files by first starting the program you use for it, and then opening the file. As far as i know, problem solved, or lat least less of a thing to worry about.
  15. Looks like he has one big music collection. And if he is into making 3d models and animations, he might need all that.
