It would be pretty funny to see someone running around with an empty iphone case, and have someone ask them why they are carrying around an empty case.

Didn't Dell have (or used to have) a utility called Quickset that, among other things, allowed you to map various things to the function keys. If I recall correctly that was what assigned all the little "icon" function keys (i.e. <Fn> + <icons on the keyboard>).

Is Quickset installed? smiley

I think that is a used to have utility, because both mine, and my sister's (which is a year or two old) doesn't have that.

I guess it isn't to big of a deal anyways.

It came straight from dell's website, and I have all the drivers still installed. I did change the power settings though, but I wouldn't think that would change it. Are those Fn keys mapped in the registry somewhere? I know that the media keys on my desktop keyboard are mapped in the registry.

note: the button might be ignored when the laptop isnt on battery power.
I tried it while on battery power.

hm, I turned the brightness up to max and pushed it, but it didn't change the brightness, I will see if it makes the computer go to sleep after a minute
edit: I dunno, it doesn't seem to do anything on mine
231  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / What does this laptop key do? on: July 04, 2009, 06:19:00 PM
Its driving me crazy! I got a new laptop recently, and I noticed this one key on it that I have no clue what it does. I looked all over the interwebs, but couldn't figure it out. It is on the F2 key, and it looks like a battery with a lightening bolt inside it. I have tried pushing it both on battery power, and on ac power and it doesn't seem to do anything. the little moon button beside it works, so it isn't that the Fn keys don't work, so can someone tell me what it does?
edit: made the image smaller... and added "pretty" arrows to it.

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.
237  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Multi-monitor Focus Support on: May 11, 2009, 09:56:49 AM
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)
238  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.
239  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.
241  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?
242  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.
243  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.
244  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.
245  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.
246  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.
247  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)

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)
249  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.
250  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?
