Miles, you have looked in the History page to see if there's any mention of that? (I couldn't find anything about that). I stopped using it years ago in favor of Xplorer2, even though I maintained the local translation for some time.
1577  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Suggestions for removing nVidia drivers? on: June 05, 2011, 10:08:48 AM
Do you have the most recent Intel INF (filter)driver set installed? That could help on the stability, and the possibility to get the Catalyst drivers installed properly.

As a side-track:
What you describe here is my main experience with ATI/AMD video cards and Catalyst drivers. I just can't get them to work properly in my PC's (and I have tried several different mainboards as I tend to build/upgrade all my systems from scratch with components bought separately). The only way to get all these systems (and their drivers) working properly for me was to remove the ATI/AMD card and put in a nVidia card with the most recent drivers (usually the WHQL certified release)
The only ATI/AMD graphics chips that work properly for me are the one's built into the laptops we have over here.

Back on track:
The HP OS-(re)install is probably going to dump the original nVidia driver onto the system, it's usually an image kind of install without much intelligence built into it.
1578  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Release: On Screen Button That Sends Keyboard Commands: WinButtons 3.1.2 on: June 05, 2011, 09:51:49 AM
I've taken quite some time and created WinButtonEdit, a GUI configuration editor for WinButtons configuration files.
Also added a few less major WinButtons features, like standard button surface- and text-color settings, and Group context switching based on the currently focused control. So:

A new release is available: WinButtons 3.1.2

Get the download (including WinButtonEdit) and all info from the original release thread

So I finally got an email back from NewEgg.  They have offered to allow returns with 100% refund on both hard drives, the NAS, or all 3 items with return shipping covered.

That sounds like the proper and to be expected reaction from NewEgg. Congrats it all works out so well thumbs up, despite the hassle you have to go through to get you a NAS...
1581  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Snapshots with VirtualBox on: June 05, 2011, 06:45:01 AM
The scripts should be fairly easy, I guess, haven't any VM's available in VBox to test ATM, but if needed I could create one (on Windows).

I've been using Workrave for some time a couple of years back (I stopped using any of those softwares, to annoying), but can't recall if it does support running some kind of user actions on a break/pause. You could ask on the Bugzilla e-mail group if you can't find this feature, they seem rather responsive.

1584  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Automated Snapshots with VirtualBox on: June 04, 2011, 08:26:14 AM
Would this help in some way? http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2007/Aug-28.html

Haven't seen any tooling that handles that, so far.
I'd go for a scheduler and a few scripts, just a few lines either in Windows or Linux scripting, and both have a decent scheduler.
Creating snapshots to often could put such a drain on the disksystem, that it influences the performance or behavior of the virtual system, so some experimenting would be needed.

You'd probably have a look at VBoxManage: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch08.html

You already have it, but it's called WPF...

How so? I'm not sure I'm following you.

AFAIR you where coding in .NET earlier, and since 3.0 that comes with WPF. It's not that difficult to code that in C#/XAML, I'd have to start a small 'playing-man' project to come up with code, but time is a bit short ATM.

so I doubt I'll be buying this "Wish List PC" for several months.
If you wait a few more months the difference will have eroded off, because by then even faster/better CPU's in the i7 line are probably released, and the net effect of that is the current generation goes down in price Thmbsup
1592  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Alternative to recursive queries on: May 29, 2011, 12:11:40 PM
VistaDB doesn't allow the use of recursive queries
Oh, well, not so great Transact-SQL compatibility then Sad
1593  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Alternative to recursive queries on: May 29, 2011, 04:48:06 AM
Hm, did some more testing (using SQL 2008 embarassed) and indeed your original query works just OK.
So it's probably an anomaly of VistaDB that it won't work there. Maybe my alternative syntax does?
1594  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Alternative to recursive queries on: May 29, 2011, 04:26:55 AM
I'm a bit worried about this part: @r = ISNULL(@r+',', '') + gt.description

Doing a lookup of the syntax leads me to this.
I'd be thinking more in the line of
Formatted for SQL with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.   DECLARE @r VARCHAR(200)
  2.    SELECT @r = CASE WHEN @r IS NULL THEN ''
  3.           ELSE  @r + ','
  4.           END,
  5.         @r = @r + gt.description
  6.    FROM GameTags gt JOIN Game2Tag g2g ON
  7.    gt.keygametag = g2g.keygametag  
  8.    WHERE g2g.keygame = 1
  9.  
  10.    SELECT @r
Tested with 3 records gave: Game 1,Game 2,Third game

Isn't one of those drivers (Acronis or RollbackRX) blocking the hibernate feature of your system?
Since when is hibernate blocked? after you installed/upgraded either of them?



Oh, and an alternative for Boot Snooze could be to turn on your coffee/tea maker after you turn on your system, and make you that cup before you start your work cheesy
1596  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Zentimo upgrade offer $9,- until 2011-05-29 on: May 28, 2011, 05:37:20 AM
Hm, 've been thinking a bit about this, and I won't go for the upgrade.

<a bit of a rant>
I just like the way USBSR works, disconnecting my USB drives easily and safely, and I don't need nor want the extra features of Zentimo. It kept nagging me about a speedtest for every USB drive I sticked in my system, but what is it good for? I bought it, so if the speed wasn't good enough (compared to what? my other USB drives?), I'm stuck with it already huh
And getting at the 'unload drive' option takes clicking on rather a tiny button, and the extra's I never need are hidden behind even more tiny buttons.
</a bit of a rant>

But last years give-away, non-upgradeable, version does work fine over here Grin

You should just run the KeyDrive.exe, it will hide in the systemtray. Right-Clicking on that icon, selecting About shows the configured hotkeys.
