  1. I agree on the linux. Give me Ubuntu. Also yes it it a proper license. Already took the number off the sticker. MS says it's good. I also have to look at support. XP is coming to the end of the road. No matter how much we like it. It's time to move on. I also have at home Vista Ult. SP2. I have not had a days problem with it. You need a newer machine though. I bought mine from Gateway new in 2007. That is coming to an end. So the other alternative is W8! NO Thank You. I tried the beta. I don't think itis going to be a good seller. Thanks for your input,both of you. When Ihave some time to look more at it.I will let you know what I decide. RICK
  2. Thank you Conuck. Mudmanc are you of the same conclusion. Is that an old thompson chopper I see in your avatar Conuck? RICK
  3. What a long and envolved process that is. I see that it is written in Grub. I used that when I first was learnig Linux. A very simple question as brought up from Conuck. Can I just reformat and put 7 on it and not wory about someone else headache. Or would I still have the password problem after that. I will be the only user. It is not going back to anyone else. So i don't think there is a need to save anything. I could be wrong.What are your gentlemen's opinion. I will defer to your better judgment. RICK
  4. Thank you Mudmanc for the info. Do you have any other suggestions? I do not have an install disc. This must be some box it has two cd drives and a Floppy!! I have not seen one of those for quite a while. RICK
  5. I actually don't know how to do this. I have been given an old Dell Box with XP OEM on it. The person giving it to me has long forgotten the LOGON. How do I make this box usefull again. I would like to use it myself. No one else will be using it. I would like to put Win 7 on it also. If it is sensitive info please do not post send in e-mail or IM. If I need to take it somewhere. Please let me know. RICK
  6. So far its Firefox 13. IE I can take it or leave it. I don't really like anything made by Google.There too much into information for my liking.
  7. Sounds like this might be MMDS or some kind of land microwave. It could also be like the stuff in the Philipines. Possibly Motorola equipment. It could also be WiMax.
  8. I wanted to speak about the choices. I like the choices. Some times because of a routing problem. I am not able to get a good read from Dallas. It has nothing to do with the server. When I find that I use DC and it usually winds up what I am expecting. The same for Seattle since I am on the west coast. It gives me alternatives to show me that something is going on. Dallas seems to give me slower reads. I did Tracerouts of it. It shows I have lousy routing from here to Dallas. Therefore slower reads. I don't seem to have that with D C or Seattle. My Pings are better to them and my jitter is better to them.
  9. Has anyone given the thought of using Dragon instead of a keyboard. I use it all the time. I can also give commands so I don't use the mouse as much.I thought of voice activation as a unusually odd way of doing things. The more I get used to it the more it becomes easy. Since I use Vista it comes free with Ultimate package. What's better than free of extra cost. So I have the choice or the one that came with the program or Dragon.
  10. WELL! Its come around again huh! As you get older it comes around faster. Make it what you want it to be. HAPPY BIRTHDAY and many more. RICK
  11. If you will look at the original post it was made 5 years ago. I hope that things could be fixed after 5 years!

I figured it was time.
  13. That list that shows how many posts for how much time. You should make that a STICKEY so any body can see it.

  16. Hello there, I like the TMN 2010-2 It has the right mixture of the two colors. Damon how far outside of Phoenix are you going?

I'll get used to it the more I use it.

  19. Roadrunner 10/1 Which is the standard in Los Angeles now.
  20. The new basic is now 10 Meg. in the Los Angeles area.
  21. They must like me! I only pay for standard. If there giving I'll take it.
  22. Especially when Sony came out with the Trinitron picture tube. I also worked on stereo sound for television. Which is standard in every TV today. Amazing how fast technology goes today. When I started the minicam weighed 80 lbs. There was no newsvans. I picked up 16mm film on a Z-1 Motorcycle and took it to the station. Now everything is on a server or hard drive. No more tape. By the way the minicam now weighs 23 lbs. with battery.
  23. As long as I'm not paying any extra. I will gladly take it.
  24. In spite of the fancy title. I came up from the ranks like everyone did. The union started everyone from the bottom in those days. I'm just plain folks now as I was then.
