Luckily for me, my computer hates autorun, and it won't auto start anything I plug in whether it is a cd, or a usb device. Not sure what I did to make it do that either.

Thanks.  Got my copy activated, will still have to wait until the 1GB are downloaded...
it downloaded suprizingly fast when I downloaded it.

Is it legit though?
It appears to be legit enough for steam to accept it as a retail copy of the game, at least thats what it said when I typed it in and activated it.

I kind of like how skrommel's script works. I might play around with it some.  Thmbsup

Thats pretty cool. I have never played it, but I am downloading the game right now.

It would be great for online games that you can't pause.
You could be talking to someone on an IM, or looking up something in an internet browser, while keeping an eye on your game.
I wish games wouldn't minimise when they loose focus like that, it kind of annoys me. (which is why I usually try to run them in window mode)
232  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: 'PortableUbuntu for Windows' question on: May 11, 2009, 09:18:47 AM
Speaking of portableubuntu, how does it compare to regular ubuntu (or wubi for that matter)? I can't use it, because co-linux doesn't support xp x64. I like the idea of being able to run linux inside windows without using a full blown virtual machine.
233  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Vista Multiple Mouse Cursors on: May 08, 2009, 08:48:00 AM
You mean like you have 2 cursors who do the same thing or you can use 2 mouses?

One cursor with two mice - I was thinking something like a hotkey-togglable thing (ex: Hold Control+Space to use Mouse Cursor 2)
I don't know why, but that sounds like a really good idea. It might be pretty useful to leave one on a window you use a lot, and then have the other one to use with windows that you close and change all the time... I don't know.

Some of those sound pretty good. I'll have to try it out when I get home.
235  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Any idea how to fix my friend's mms problem? on: May 08, 2009, 08:21:03 AM
yeah, I'm guessing it is probably something with his plan.
No, he has never been able to send multimedia messages. I'll tell him to check with AT&T.

There are plans that support only sms but not mms?
236  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Any idea how to fix my friend's mms problem? on: May 07, 2009, 04:26:15 PM
Ok, my friend and I are both on the AT&T network.
I have a pantech slate (I can send and receive mms)
My friend has a razr v3xx (He can't send or receive mms)
I was able to take my sim card and put it in his phone, and send a mms, while when his sim card is in his phone, he can't send/receive them.
I haven't tried putting his sim card in my phone yet, but I might try that tomorrow.

So my question is: Does anyone have an idea as to what the problem is, and how to go about fixing it?
My guess is it is something with his service, since when I put my card in his phone everything works fine.
I couldn't tell you if he can connect to the internet on his phone, because neither of us have a data plan, so I didn't want to try that.
237  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Has anybody ever tried a FON router? on: April 25, 2009, 09:46:23 PM
don't own one personally, Darren over at hak5 has one, and in this episode, he talks about it. He doesn't use it for what its designed for, but this episode talks about one thing you can do with it.
238  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Should I switch from xp to vista? on: April 15, 2009, 08:39:23 PM
If it works on Vista64, it'll likely work just fine on XP64 as well...
lol, try telling that to an installer designed to chew you out if you don't run the installer on vista.
239  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How many people does it take to fix a phone? on: April 15, 2009, 08:38:09 PM
I can't really do that tho, because I don't pay for my phone.
I got the phone free with a new contract, and my dad pays the bill.
Plus, I don't really have problems with my phone much, that was the first time.
240  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How many people does it take to fix a phone? on: April 14, 2009, 08:55:02 AM
lol, if only I knew his number I could have given him a ring and have my phone fixed in probably less than an hour.
241  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / How many people does it take to fix a phone? on: April 14, 2009, 08:45:08 AM
How many people does it take to fix mms on a cell phone? Three!
One customer service, and two tech support.
Recently I had been having problems with my phone (pantech slate if you would like to know)
I couldn't send or receive any picture messages (mms)
Yesterday, I called AT&T and asked if they could help me out. I would like to point out that this is the first time I have ever called anyone for tech support on anything, so I had only heard about how bad tech support was. Now I know from first hand just how bad it can be.
I was on the phone for over an hour... but on the bright side, I got a nice picture of the tech support guy's desk phone. (He sent it to see if I could receive picture messages.)
So I first called the only number I could find from AT&T's website. I got to the customer support after about 8 minutes of listening to free music and ads. She wasn't much help, but I did get the tech support number from her, and then got transfered to the first tech support person. She was of no use, and said she was going to transfer me to the tech support... I thought she was tech support...(who was I just talking to then?) After a two minute wait, I got to the second tech support (the guy that gave me the free picture of the desk phone). This guy was pretty helpful. After making me load up the internet browser on my phone and goto the homepage to see if I could connect to the internet (which is bad, because I don't have a data plan on my phone) he finally did something on his end, and then said that he was going to send me a picture message to see if I could receive messages. That is when I almost crapped my pants, because I read out on the internet, that other ppl had the same problem as I had, and to fix it, they had to replace the phone. He then wanted to make sure I could send picture messages before he let me go. (that doesn't work verywell, because at my house, I get bad cell signal, so sending the mms took a looong time). So in the end, what ever he did, it fixed my phone, and now I can send and receive picture messages again.

The purpose of this story is just because I experienced my first tech support call, and I just had to share it with the world. If you want to share your first tech support story with me, that would be great. I am curious to hear some pretty funny/annoying tech support stories. (I love to read about random ones that I find on google)
242  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Should I switch from xp to vista? on: April 09, 2009, 07:27:54 PM
Why are you considering switching? Is XP64 giving you problems?

Personally, XP64 does the job fine. If my machine crashed today, I'd probably install Vista64 on it, though. But if it doesn't, which I kinda hope smiley, my next upgrade will be Win7-64.
well I'm not having problems with xp x64 (other than my stupid bluetooth adapter) I just wanted an operating system that was still supported by the world.
You can look at different programs, and they will have a 32 bit version, and then the only 64 bit version is vista, not xp. (one example microsoft's live writer, vista x64 only, not xp x64)
243  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Should I switch from xp to vista? on: April 08, 2009, 08:41:53 PM
The closest I'm going to get to xp 32 bit is the virtual machine that I use pretty much only to transfer stuff from my phone to my pc since my bluetooth adapter doesn't work well in 64 bit.

I guess I will skip vista and goto windows 7 when it gets released.

I hope 7 is only 64 bit. Maybe then people will stop using 32 bit and start making 64 bit programs. It might also fix problems with not finding 64 bit drivers, since your only choice is a 64 bit OS.
244  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Should I switch from xp to vista? on: April 08, 2009, 06:45:02 PM
So right now I have xp x64 with 4 gigs of ram.
I like to play games on my computer (that is the main thing I do on my computer)
Most of the world (including microsoft themselves) don't really support xp 64 bit much anymore.
So my question here is, should I switch to windows vista, and if so, should I stick with 64 bit, or loose some of my ram and use 32 bit.
I don't know that I want to switch or not though, because my brother has vista x64 on his computer at work with 4 gigs of ram, and the computer is new and a fairly good computer, and he says it runs kind of slow. I want to be able to play games still, but I would like to have an operating system that is still supported by the world.

Bottom line: Windows vista(x64 (supported by the world, xp x64 not supported by the world)) should I switch, or just stick with my xp x64?

Facebook/myspace probably went under.... those users would be stumped.

They'd go into shock withdrawl symptoms

Lol, somehow I could see a huge group of people all logging onto facebook/myspace at the same time, and they all see 404. "What the heck does that mean?"

...now I'm curious to see what the wiki article says, I have never read it.
246  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: When was your last BSOD? I'm betting it was a long time ago on: April 02, 2009, 09:23:51 AM
well I'm not blaming windows exactly. I just called patchguard stupid because it won't let me install sandboxie.
247  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Shell extension which would let you choose which browser opens a hyperlink on: April 02, 2009, 09:02:36 AM
One Idea:
Code an AHK script (or some other language, all I know though is AHK) that will show a list of all your web browsers, and run the selected browser with the url shortcut you ran.
Then you just change the open with for url shortcuts to that AHK script, so that when you double click on the shortcut, it opens the program and adds the shortcut to a variable, and when you select which browser you want to use, it would open the selected url with the browser you picked.
248  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: When was your last BSOD? I'm betting it was a long time ago on: April 02, 2009, 08:51:27 AM
I've actually had two incidents not to long ago. One was when I tried to install sandboxie on xp x64. Sandboxie and microsofts stupid "patchguard" don't play nice together.

(The second one isn't actually a BSOD, but I felt like pointing it out anyways.)
The second one was when I was trying to install ubuntu on my computer. Ubuntu doesn't like my computer's hardware (or atleast the graphics card, the stupid xserver kept crashing)
249  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Automatic text flipper (180 degree) aka upside down on: April 02, 2009, 08:47:33 AM
why are people starting to use email addresses as their whachamacallit name-tag? (that's the second new participant I've seen with an email address in the last week)

apologies for going directly off-topic but I have a paranoid streak Wink
lol, forget about answering the question, lets point out other stuff... I've noticed that also. No clue why ppl do that.

Heya guys, YouTube kinda inspired me of this idea! It's very annoying to read upside down! I KNOW! But can some1 build a small program for me?? .exe or something.

What this program does and contains:

-Automatically flip text upside down (Convert AUTOMATIC! So you dont need to paste the original text and then convert it,then paste it like the internet sites.)
-In the .exe a "Start" button and a "Stop" button
-When you click "Start" and you type something it automatically flips upside down. No matter where you write the text. EVERYWHERE! So MSN, Notepad, Word, just everything! Even if the text editor doesnt support these "special" characters.


I start the .exe then I click Start
I can write everywhere upside down because it automatically converts the text upside down in my textbox.
Yay! Now I can annoy people! Now the fun is over and I click Stop and can type normal again cheesy

THX guys cheesy

I only know how to code in AHK, but I wouldn't think that would be possible to do. You would most likely just have to copy and paste it manually into one of the online converters, and then paste it where ever you wanted it upside down.
250  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Microphone enabler on: April 02, 2009, 08:43:19 AM

The new values are not doing anything to both control panels, playback and recording

maybe something is missing

Thanks a lot for your great share
I tested both versions of the code yesterday when I got home from school. The first version changed the playback mic, and like Learning, the second version didn't do anything. I guess AHK just hates the recording panel.
