  1. Wow, pretty thorough shocker, haha thanks a lot I appreciate it. you get 2 thumbs up!
  2. I just wanted to point out that I use this all the time now, it's really helpful if I lose my phone too.
  3. I heard or saw something on Digg recently that was talking about how Google was going after ISP's for bandwidth throttling using an application they dev'd, I looked and cant seem to find the application, anyone else know anything?
  4. Welcome to the site fellow groovy IT enthusiast!
  5. i used to use picasa until I read googles terms of use @ http://www.groovypost.com/howto/securit ... literally/ I steer clear from those guys now. Although gmail is hard to get rid of.

    Windows 7 Beta

    Is the windows 7 beta stable enough to be worth downloading? Any other comments or concerns?
  8. Hey golfie, if you're looking for the beata bang for your buck go with AMD, personnaly I've never even used intel. Also from my experience ATI tends to be slightly faster, but like mr.groove said their drivers have issues. Honestly though drivers have been an issue with Nvidia too and recently ATI has been doing a good job. Nvidia still has a nicer interface though. I think both seagate and western digital make good Hd's but go with whatever has the best warranty/price.
  9. Yeah bud it sounds like NOD32 might be messing with your outlook. My guess is it is trying to scan every email so this affects overall performance but it probably wouldn't be noticeable until outlook tries to access your clipboard.
  10. That's crazy! I am having the same problem with the IP address conflict but my internet still works... I can't explain it I got it to this point by following MRgroove's advice up top and deleting my Program Files\VMA folder, even though that could totally mess things up it got my internet working.
  11. Hey again, So my virtual guest is working perfectly thanks to MR. Groove. I figured out that you can drag and drop files from your HOST onto your GUEST, but is there a better way to do this? Obviously I could probably setup a shared network folder, but is there a way to share a folder internally so I don't have to transfer them through the DHCP server?
  12. ah okay, thanks for clearing that up. I went ahead and went through the EULA and didn't see anything fishy, I'm no lawyer though... I did go through Google's security policy though and found that they give you the option to opt out of some of there ad serve cookies. So me thinks if they give the option to Opt out, then the reason they must track you is in order to give you more appealing advertisements.
  13. Hey do you think it is possible to integrate Polls into the current phpBB setup? I was going to make a couple posts with an ever popular voting Poll but then I realized I can't!!!!! Thanks grooveman!
  14. Anyone seen or heard of any good light-weight media players that can play everything WMP11 can? I've found a bunch of different ones but they don't seem to be enough of an improvement over WMP11 to switch, anyone else have any luck?
  15. Recently I was going to reformat my computer anyhow so I decided to install and try out a bunch of new applications. So I downloaded Chrome and it is really fast, it's very simple and lightweight too, I really like it. I'm wondering though, I heard some rumors that google pretty much steals all of your information while you are using Chrome, is that true? Also, I've finally gone ahead and decided I want to go 100% Firefox, does anyone know of anyway to block IE from ever opening? I'm on XP sp3
  16. Yeah, once I uninstalled the video card drivers, and reinstalled the new ones it worked..! Problem solved hooray. I must say, DVI/HDMI looks waaay nicer than VGA.
  17. Heya guys, I recently purchased a DVI to HDMI cable during the cyber monday sales. I got my cable from here http://www.eforcity.com/pothhdmid2m1.html for a $3 free shipping deal. And I'm using a HP w2207h monitor. For some reason I'm not getting any video on the screen from my DVI outpout on my video card. My vga works just fine though, infact I don't even have a vga output on the card. I am using a dvi to vga converter as it is. I just have dual dvi outputs. My monitor status infact even shows that it is not connected to anything, even though the cable is plugged in! My monitor has HDMI and VGA in, no DVI in. Maybe thats the reason? Or maybe its just a crap cable... Either way, help is appreciated, because if it's the cables fault I'm gonna RMA it.
  18. Yeah I called all the local Fry's, and none of them had it in stock. Guess I can maybe try to get a similar one on Cyber Monday, if they participate that is.
  19. This was the deal of all deals on http://www.frys.com It sold out by 1am PST though, I missed it
  20. Bought this one for 175 shipped. *165 before shipping http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopp ... ku=GM757AA
