  1. Just make sure you backup up any important files before you try this. It very easy to accedentally delete the wrong partition, or misconfigure something.
  2. http://www.amazon.com/Plantronics-Open-Ear...5182&sr=8-1 Plantronics .audio 370 is what I have. Comfy, good sound quality and the mic works really well. Not the best gaming headphones out there, but definatly the best bang for you buck at >$40 <---Wow, judging by my avatar I haven't posted since last Stanley Cup Championship.
  3. Yes. It should. Do you have a specific example?
  4. Ah, the memories of me and my brother tag-teaming the endurance races of gt2. Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak FTW. I played 3 a good bit also. but not nearly as much as 2. Havent played any since that
  5. Broken into a few cars have we? You might want to consider vark as a potential suspect.
  6. Disabling ActiveX will make it quite a bit more secure. But that will also make it so IE doesnt work on microsoft sites and other sites that require IE. Kindof a catch 22, most of the scripting, and features that IE needs is what makes it insecure. One of the biggest things you can do to make IE secure is to run it from a non-admin account. If your needing IE for a few specific sites, but not frequent web browsing you can have a non-admin account for that. (obviously if you need to use IE frequently this wont work very well)
  7. I'm pretty sure its an early 1960 Maserati, maybe a 3500gt?
  8. Can you connect via other means? e.g. Aim, email client, computer game? Can he connect to the routers web interface( for linksys.) How about if you disable the wireless card and connect via ethernet, can you connect to anything then?
  9. I'm not all that worried about a keyboard. in gaming. Unless you use macro's and crap like that a normal cheap one seems to work well. The mouse however I do see a difference. It needs to be at least 800dps, and have good button feel to make me happy. (I like my razer diamondback.) For racing games. I use a playstation2 controller with a homade adapter. (spent too many long playing gran turismo to try to change my controller now.)
  10. http://www.mini-itx.com/ Theres a good site for info on mini ITX boards
  11. Whats color is the link light on the back of the nic? Most gig-e nics have a multi colored light that changes whether the connection is 100 meg or gig-e. Look in the manual to see if it tells you what color it should be. If the light indicates its only 100 meg it might be a cableing problem. Also you could try plugging in your computer where your ps3 is plugged in a visa-versa and see if the connection speed changes on either of them.
  12. After looking around for a while I cant find any settings that change this. It looks to me your best bet might be to disable the open option that way when they click on a link it just automaticaly saves the file to a place they already know. If you set a default location for downloaded files per the guide HERE. It theoreticaly disables the open option. However thats a per user registry setting, so if you use gpmc to deploy it make sure you put it in user scripts. There might be a GPO setting for this rather than registry editing, Ill have to check tomorrow at work.
  13. This is a guy that thinks snorkle and purple ryhme. Give him a break. Back on topic. Welcome to the club ya dirty hobo.
  14. Dayton Audio makes a pretty sick sub for the price. My roomate has the sub100 in the basement, and it will shake the entire upstairs of the house when you feed it a sub test. Great performance for the price. I would fully recomend it.
  15. I feel old now that members with numbers in the 27,000s are coming back after being gone for a while. anyways. Welcome back.
  16. My friend had a mx518 that wasnt heavy enough so I opened it up and glued some weights to the inside. Why spend $50 for an adjustable weight system? MX518 - 20-25 Lead fishing sinkers - >$2 hotgluegun >$3 $25 for a mouse with a modular weight system. Just my 2cents
  17. Take a good look at the haynes manual before you buy it and make sure it has all the details you need. I had a manual for my 90 buick regal. and the manual was next to useless. It covered all ff sedans that GM made between the years of 88 and 98. Tried to fix the fuel filter and it gave me 5 different methods for 3 different types of fuel injection and left you up to your own device to figure out which one fit your car. (only took a facefull of gasoline to figure out which of the steps I had to follow do shut off the gas.) Even worse if you try to do body/ interier work. But if you find one that fits only your car for a few select years they are awsome.
  18. What you arent going to show pics of the crackle box?
  19. Here's my XBOX tsop flash and a 40 gig hard drive on the inside. The outside has some bondo, sanding, priming, sanding, priming, sanding, priming, sanding, painting, sanding (well you get the picture.) The emblem is from a 69 olds 442.
  20. I would probably bug the owner a little bit and find out what he changed. (Or check the event log to see if he installed anything.) Also I would probably throw some files up on the site for testing purposes, that will tell you if its a problem with exchange or the web server itself.
  21. if you try to connect to it localy e.g. https://localhost/"whatever_your_owa_directory_is" do you get the same error? Is OWA the only site hosted on that computer? Does iis have any sort of error log? Have you tried restarting cas? Any windows updates applied recently? Any GPO changes recently (assuming you set anything up via Group Policy on the domain.)?
  22. http://www.mireth.com/wt/sxme-ss-free-space-mac.html Give that a shot. (You'll have to delete the files before running it.) But any data shreder or freespace shreder for mac will accomplish what you need.
  23. I got a microsoft Microsoft Natural 4000 for free so I'm using it. Before that I had the 10 dollar logitech something and it lasted me for 5 years, and still is no worse for the wear. I pretty much wont pay more than 20 for a keyboard.
  24. My parents ran fram filters in their van from 60k-200k before the frame started breaking apart (obviously not oil filter related). Ran it in the newer van from 80k-180k+ and its still running strong. I ran it in my 90 buick regal from 130k-200k never had a problem (I sold it but I still see it putting around) I have a valvoline in my new car, cause I was in a hurry and the fastest oil change place uses valvoline. Next time I change it myself it will get a fram. Worth the $4 IMHO
