  2. If I'm getting rid of a hard drive will reformatting it get rid of all my old data? I want to wipe the drive of information because I might recycle or resell the computer. Not sure which yet.

    Safe remove hardware notice

    Whenever I am using my external hard drive or my USB stick or flash memory. Yada yada yada.. There is always a notification telling me its safe to remove hardware or not safe to remove hardware. Well I always ignore it and unplug but it's just really annoying. It doesn't seem to damage my hardware any and so I would like to know if there is a way to get rid of the notification. Or if I'm wrong and brutally abusing my hardware doing this then please tell me! Thanks
  4. Was just reading a story about a couple different people who had their macbooks overheat. After they sent it in for warranty repairs and replacement apple informed them that the warranty was void. Apparently the presence of cigarette smoke residue will cause internal problems in a macbook significant enough that Apple considers it sabotage. The way apple puts it is. "cigarette residue" is a "bio-hazard." So because its a biohazard they want to charge $3,000 to fix it. Interesting since a new one doesnt even cost that much.
  5. To go along with Mr. Biceps,
  6. funny video! That reminds me more of MadTV than typical SNL, great stuff. I found some good tips to avoid the fuss here: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2010/11/ ... gate-rape/ Here's one of my favorite images that just went viral

    cannot access my w7 from my XPsp3

    It didn't give you a log-in dialog where you could enter an administrator user name/password? That's what it does for me. You might also need to create a user on the XP machine that has the same name and password as your windows 7 account user. Here is a write up on it from Microsoft: Networking home computers running different versions of Windows. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... #section_9 Also, make sure your windows 7 shares are shared using Advanced sharing. That should guarantee they are accessible.

    Lord of the Rings Online is free now

    WOW...World of Weaksauce I don't think you could pay me to play that. I used to, and I quit - biggest waste of time ever. You spend 6 months getting the best armor in the game so you can go PVP, then they just UP the level limit and now your "epic armor" is worse off than the common stuff found on the new high level mobs. I'll stick to just not playing games at all, much less frustrating than dealing with the crap that passes as a "game" now-a-days. Also - LOTR online sucks.

    Is apple more secure than windows vista?

    I've only run Windows, the only Apple product I've ever owned is an iPod Touch. From my experience, Windows is just as secure as Mac. If you download a Mac virus, Mac will get infected. If you download a WIndows virus, Windows will get infected. There really isn't much of a difference other than that hackers tend to target Windows more since nobody in the "real" computer world uses Mac.

    plug in on 64bit IE

    Internet Explorer is a catastrophe. Switch to Firefox or better yet, Chrome. Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) will be out of beta soon and that looks very promising, so maybe wait until that is out and then you can upgrade.

    cannot access my w7 from my XPsp3

    I had this problem with connecting my XP systems to my Windows Server 2008. I think the main reason is that Windows 7 has different sharing permissions. Try this... On your Windows 7 Machine - Open the Start Menu - Search for "Manage Advanced Sharing Options" then open it. - Under Home or Work - Turn On File & Printer Sharing - On the same page Turn on Network Discovery Now on the XP SP3 machine -Open My Network Places -View Workgroup Computers From there you should be able to see your Windows 7 machine now and be able to connect. Hopefully...

    Wierd Windows 7 Error

    I'm getting this weird error security warning window pop every time I try to open up a program. It's happening to nearly every program. It didn't start until I followed this guide: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microso ... windows-7/ It doesn't happen to new programs I've installed since then, but it seems that it reset all of my already installed programs or something. Maybe it made winodws think they are web links? Not really sure.

    Wierd Windows 7 Error

    Finally, was able to get rid of those pop-ups. Was the last place I would expect to look - Internet Explorer Went to: IE, Internet Options > Security > Custom Level > Misc section then I set Launching Applications and unsafe files to Enable. All the pop-ups went away.

    Dreamhost prices

    Does Dreamhost ever do any deals for existing customers. I mean the $10 for your first year is great but if that is all they got I don't know if I will stick with them.
  21. I read before that there is a way to enable numeric signal strength on the iphone, so I don't have to rely on the "idiot bars" and I can see the technical number that my signal currently is at. Thanks for the help!

    Yeah I agree with Dexter, that is a nasty virus. You can't really trust your computer again once you've had it. You DONT need to reformat... just don't ever put any personal of financial information on that computer until you do.

    Knights of the Old Republic - $2.50

    great game, i enjoyed it.
  24. I was thinking about this for a while and I thought it might be useful to start putting together a REAL list of safe places to shop online, or maybe if you have a GOOD experience just post it below in this thread. The review sites out there are pretty useless, ebay has a good review system I guess but I don't like buying on there unless the Bing cashback is going BIG. We can start a bad list too muhuhahaha.
