The problem facing charges against places like the PirateBay, is that .torrent files themselves are NOT illegal, and in fact, many respected developers (Mainly games as they are large files) use them so their community can take the bulk of the bandwidth required to host such large files, and receive such massive amounts of download requests (Doing so can greatly reduce hosting costs).

Yo Dawg. We heard you like torrents, so we put a torrent in your torrent so you can torrent while you torrent.

They have been donated by some company to a charity I help with

IF you're working with a registered non-profit or charity (i.e. 501(c)(3) status non-profit or library ), and involved with their technology, you'll want to be aware of these guys.

Microsoft works with this group too. Good source for super-inexpensive software, etc. Thmbsup

 Cool




Wow...Bookmarked!

If the machines are OEM, you may get lucky with:

C:\Windows\options\cabs

Windows setup files were frequently kept there in the 9x days.

Just a thought.

None of the machines actually have an OS on them Sad


On another note...if anybody has some old tech (Doesn't really matter what it is, or how old it is, just so long as it works) and wants it to go to a good cause (and also willing to package and send), let me know.

I will inform you via PM of which charity this is, their Charity number, and any other information you need smiley

Btw, this is in the UK (Just so any kind donors from Abroad are aware) ^_^

Theres around 200-300 machines
Hm, so we won't be seeing you here for a while ohmy

Oh trust me...I'll be here cheesy

I don't expect this to be a fun week though haha

ok next time I will jotti.

If you get any more reports of this, please let us know ASAP

It is NEVER bad to report anything like this, here smiley

Thanks again smiley
1434  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Obtaining Windows OS ISO's on: March 05, 2012, 04:44:36 PM
Yeah that's the plan...Linux on those without COA's and Winblows windows on those with them.

Silly question, but how many machines? And what are they being used for?

Theres around 200-300 machines...I expect only around 50 of those to have a COA.

They have been donated by some company to a charity I help with, and I have been tasked with formatting, re-installing, and checking every single machine lol - The machines will then be either donated to those who cannot afford a computer, or sold for a very low price to those willing to donate a small sum (and also could otherwise not afford) for it smiley

I don't really want the hassle of calling microsoft and trying to repeat 50 serial keys to an Indian call center, who's staff barely understand what your saying...

If needs must, and M$ don't just 'Provide' the 30 day trial stuff for this, ill just use other methods smiley

Yeah, I am 99.99% sure this is a false positive.


Thank you for pointing this out smiley

Did you download Direct from here at DonationCoder? - If so, please provide the link you used.

NB: If it WAS from here at DC, then there is a 99.99% that this, is a false-positive
1439  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Obtaining Windows OS ISO's on: March 05, 2012, 03:49:56 PM
Anybody know where I could obtain 'LEGALLY'  ISO's of Windows 98 and XP?

These will be installed, ONLY on machines with a COA label attached to the tower.

If possible, I would like the base OS (No Service Packs) purely because I have had issues where a COA is licenced for SP1, and you try to install the full OS with SP2 bundled...I would much rather install service packs separately due to this.

Thanks in advance cheesy

Are you people speaking English?
 embarassed

Press Start, Type 'msconfig' (without the '') and hit enter...choose the boot tab...and if you see "Windows Vista" simply press "Delete" on it smiley - I dunno if this will cause any errors with your system though so, somebody else may wanna confirm this for you smiley
1442  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to remove Windows.old? on: March 04, 2012, 04:33:51 PM
check in msconfig, see if its left a boot option in there
1443  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to remove Windows.old? on: March 04, 2012, 02:58:54 PM
Boot into a Live version of any Linux build, locate the folder, eradicate the folder, reboot into winblows windows?

Worth a shot if nothing else smiley

In the end, I told him to add a message on his site, that says it is best viewed in ANYTHING other than Firefox.

Agree. I find myself using Opera more and more.

Been using Opera for years and just cannot find a viable alternative for every-day use.

The ONLY thing I use Firefox for, is Netflix, purely because it won't actually let me use Opera for watching shows, and I am certainly not going to use IE for that task lol
1445  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Anyone else noticed this? on: March 03, 2012, 11:20:44 AM
Ok. This is what I'm talking about. Closed FF. Then this weirdness just happened again when I opened FF:
 (see attachment in previous post)
Wasn't doing it before.  undecided
This is probably unrelated, and I'm going to start a new thread...
but ever since the crazy firefox versions have come out, it's been a pain in the butt to keep things working smoothly.  I'm not saying it's FF, it just feels like it.

I had this discussion with a friend of mine the other day...he was asing why the website I made for him 3 weeks ago, now does not render properly in Firefox (Even though it did when it was launched) - I explained to him, that keeping up with Firefox changes was just not worth the effort seeing as they seem to change how everything is viewed on every new release...as a developer, that is VERY irritating and just seems to be a complete waste of time...

In the end, I told him to add a message on his site, that says it is best viewed in ANYTHING other than Firefox.

I think we should get BitCoins here on DC - Seeing as we can mine collectively - Would be cool to see how much got generated each month for DC - And seeing as you can trade them for real services and money, it could be a fun thing to do.

I know I would personally donate all my idle CPU to mining bitcoins for DC smiley

https://bitmarket.eu/ <---- Trading for real money, seems possible, and seems to have an active amount of buyers/sellers - If DC just undercuts everyone selling...its a good earner lol

**edit**

For those of you who have DC open when your PC is on (Tab always open) - What real difference would it be to have one extra page dedicated to doing this? (Asides from the extra bit of noise coming from your computer due to the fans going crazy lol)
