    Windows Server 2008

    Anyone running Server 2008 in production yet? We just launched our first server on Thursday and so far so good. I love all the new features! Trying to get it configured on my laptop but I'm having problems. Will probably need to wait for SP1

    PNG files turn solid black

    Hi @Beckylouwho - Is this all happening inside Windows Explorer? Have you played around with the View Tab? Perhaps set it to Large Icons, extra large icons etc...?

    Homeless man turned famous

    When addiction is involved with no support from family/friends, my experience is that it's just a matter of time... sad story but not a surprise.

    How much is my website worth?

    3x earnings is typical however, it all depends on annual growth. Are you growing or shrinking?

    What exactly are you trying to do? Are you getting this error on your mobile or on a website? Have you gone to and tried to login? Any error messages?
  6. FWIW, I just had a conversation via chat with Amazon. They wouldn't give me a price change refund however, they instead told me to return the item and just repurchase it at the lower price. I have to say, it's a hassle but $22 is $22....

    2015 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping Deals

    Great computer for the kids I found over at Office depot -- ... ider1-Home $169 bucks for a Lenovo® H30 Slim Tower Desktop Computer With AMD E1 Processor, Windows® 10 It's AMD so it's not going to be a speed demon however, it's probably better than a chomebook if you already have a mouse, keyboard and monitor.
  9. Hey man - you need to expand on this a bit. I have a lot of Apple gear now. You need to add a few more man.
  10. So I installed it and honestly, I don't know what all the drama was about. Going through the install it asked me about what i wanted to share with Microsoft, ads etc... I just checked the "Hell No" radio buttons on each option. Why are people freaking out anyway? I don't get it...

    SEO questions

    No - don't do it. Google is not an idiot. Just write great content, keep it updated (if it's evergreen) and remain active in your niche. Traffic will come natural. If you screw around with blackhat SEO, you will get burned.
  13. Yup. Not there for me either. Sucks.

    toshiba 775 saatelite

    Go Here - You should be able to track down your Laptop model type and download the BIOS Firmware update. I don't know about Toshiba but somethings they have you build a Boot Disk from and flash the BIOS. This is where I would start and go down this path.
  16. Here's the info on how-to corrupt a PST file: 1 - To corrupt the PST file, open it with the hex editor any will do but like MrGroove said, notepad++ is good 2 - Delete positions 7 through 13 with the spacebar. Since you're using hexadecimal numbering, this actually clears 13 characters in the following positions: 3 - 00007 00008 00009 0000a 0000b 0000c 0000d 0000e 0000f 00010 00011 00012 00013 (The editor displays the code “20” each time you clear a position with the spacebar.) 4 - After clearing those positions in the file, save it. Your PST is now corrupted. 5 - Run the Inbox Repair Tool, SCANPST.exe, to recover the file. detailed by MrGroove here: microsoft-office/recovery-deleted-mail-for-pop3-and-imap-t95681.html#p96321 On Win2K and WinNT systems, the executable is located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\NT. You can also find it on the Office 2000 CD-ROM in Drive:\Pfiles\Common\System\Mapi\1033\NT. In WinXP, the file is located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033. For additional information on the Inbox Repair Tool, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 287497. If you have Office 2007 however either use Windows Vista or Windows 7 etc... SCANPST.exe should be stored in the Office 12 folder (c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\scanpst.exe) or scanost.exe for that matter as well. 6 - After creating a backup, the Inbox Repair Tool repairs the damage and recreates the PST. Open the new PST in Outlook. The Deleted Items folder should contain all removed messages, so anything you've emptied will be restored. The KEY here is to use a BACKUP of the .PST or .BAK file you want to restore.
  17. I'm hosting several sites, phpbb forums and wordpress blogs for work and play. I've been looking at Cloudflare for protection of the site and to speed it up. Steve -- I see you just moved your forum to a subdomain and now you're using cloudflare. Would love to hear what you think of it as I'm thinking the same thing. Are you going to use it on all your sites or just your forum? Overall, what do you think for Cloudflare? First impressions?

    Best iPhone 5 Case

    I've always liked iSkin cases - ... 1364706521 They are always very nice and reasonable. Just make sure you get a good screen protector to go with it.

    iPhone 5 or Wait....

    Well, the 5 has LTE and it's a great phone. I would just go for the 5 at this point. It is full LTE so you should be golden. Then again, being that the 5 has been out for months, you might want to hold off and get the 5S or 6. Should be "almost" there at this point and the LTE is way way better than just normal 4G.

    High CPU Usage on my Windows 7 Computer

    Well, you need to go into Task Manager and see what exactly is using the CPU. Perhaps it's just normal operation based on what you are doing. Then again, it could also be a virus or other software you need to nuke. Either way, just go into taskmanager and see what is using all that CPU and go from there. Do you know how to use task manager on Windows 7 or 8?
