Keep these Vista observations and recommendations coming! It's apparent that no matter how hard we throw up our own personal walls, that Vista WILL become the predominate OS as we move forward.

As for me, I'll keep my XP Pro Systems for as long as possible, but it is apparent that I'm only delaying the inevitable.


lolz

vista is bunk.

didn't people say that about windows ME? even regular consumers held onto 98 se for dear life..

The only reason I can think of that you are paying so much is that you have set up a dedicated server. Why do that if you don't have to? I use the Pro Plan and pay every two years to get the cheapest rate. I still haven't used a fraction of the space available but then again, I only use the site for teaching.


Are you kidding? They do it because they have to.

Cheap shared hosting sucks.

I'd rather use my 30/9.5 mbps home FIOS connection than that.. it's usually faster, more reliable, and cheaper.

any forum with semi-decent traffic on shared hosting is going to be terrible.. and after being around for several years, and being known as THE PLACE to get a machine that has all the prntscrn 4 GHZ LOLZ images _AND_ better stability standards than any OCing site on the net, you can bet there's enough traffic here to xxxx up your $7/mo hosting.

This wasn't where you went to post "3 GHz X2" without some xxxxing proof that it's so stable you'd record an elton john concert with heavy realtime processing going on with that machine.

I don't need this site anymore. I don't do anything that makes having a 3.92 GHz machine more important than a 2.4.. I never overload the 2.4, 3.92 is too loud, I have no use to fry my CPU for it nor cause me grief with everything using "niche market" components entails. Like having to switch to a 1.8v stick of memory every now and then so I can boot into the BIOS and set it to 2.2v for the g.skill or OCZ.... I could work on a 2.1 dual easily for the next few years and never give a xxxx. And even if I did need that machine, what I learned about _how_ to choose hardware and _how_ to mess with settings from reading all the posts here(and making a bunch of stupid ones myself) is going to stick with me until computers aren't silicon and metal anymore.

but it'd be a shame to see a resource for new overclockers gone.
