1 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Middle click to close windows in taskbar on: May 26, 2006, 10:29:16 AM
I second that as an awsome idea!

An awesome video that really shows the roots of all modern dancing, check it out!

Bah, Wikipedia IS NOT and NEVER WAS an experiment in democracy... it is an attempt to create an encyclopaedia!

"Microsoft is readying a security update for Word that repairs this vulnerability, a company representative said in an e-mailed statement. The fix is scheduled to be released as part of the June 13 security updates, or sooner, if warranted, the representative said."

Just what more is required to make this patch warranted for release? There is an exploit, in the wild, for this vulnerability - it's release should be "warranted" immediately.

Just my opinion but I think it would be much nicer without the money in the bird's mouth...

It kinda looks like the bird has just pinched the money and made a run for it!

7  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Want to wet my beak with Linux,need suggestions on distro. on: November 23, 2005, 03:09:25 AM
I recommend Debian purely for the reason that it has been my long running favourite in command line mode hehe!

On another note, Gentoo has an excellent package system called Portage that can make installing software so much easier....

Just my 2 cents.

8  News and Reviews / Best FTP Server / glftpd and proftpd on: May 08, 2005, 08:43:16 AM
Although I agree that Blackmoon is a good piece of software I have a couple of criticisms.

Firstly, are reviews on this site restricted to Windows applications? The origin of FTP is in *nix based systems and there are many more mature servers for this platform than for Windows. Both glftpd and proftpd are pieces of free software with all the features of Blackmoon.

The obvious thing to be said about this is that they are both harder to use than Blackmoon. I accept this, but the price offset is large and besides, Serv-U is infinitely easier to configure by people who do not know what they are doing than Blackmoon.

Other than that, good review :p

9  Special User Sections / General Review Discussion / Re: What categories should we review next? on: April 27, 2005, 06:32:44 AM
This might be very personal, but I'd really like to see reviews of .NET Framework 100% Managed Code components. These are really expensive and I certainly can't afford to buy them only to find I got the wrong one!

I'm especially interested in Networking Components and TLS/SSL components.

Maybe a category for Programming Language Components?
