Living Room / What a wonderful piece of art ...
« on: May 19, 2006, 04:14 PM »
Somebody recently told me that (in his opinion) the object of art was to question, even attack, one's beliefs, points of view etc - that if a piece of art really annoyed you (he referred to something titled "Piss Christ" which, I guess understandably, rather upset some people) then it had succeeded.
This forum is a work of art!
Have a good weekend all.

Living Room / Re: Skype users: beware

Yep, probably wasn't a good idea to start a grammar discussion as I'm sure there's somebody out there who will dissect my posts and explain how awfully written they are - bring it on!
I totally agree with you about initially informing Skype of this problem. Maybe they did?
I visited Skype's website and could find no mention of problems or that document.

Living Room / Thanks ...

Thanks to all of you.
This forum has entertained and amused me - most I've laughed all day!
I think I love listening to people arguing!
I think you need to turn this around and ask people what they suggest.
Of course it's illegal ... but would you be happier if all of those many faulty products (and we're not just talking about software) were never highlighted and made to be fixed?
What about the bigger picture?
I'm sure the "outing" of corrupt politicians, companies, etc is probably done in a rather questionable manner but would you prefer if they were never brought to light?
Most products (especially physical products e.g. cars, fridges, tvs, etc etc etc) are reverse-engineered by the competition to see how it works so that they can then make a better product without a lot of the development cost. Of course it's illegal but everybody does it and it's become "accepted".
Beware the government which makes it illegal to question what they're doing. Something the UK Labour government have been trying to do in some absurd situations in the name of anti-terrorism.
Why should software companies be able to do this?
Anyway, back to the real point of this forum, enlightening us all ... does anybody know if Skype are doing something about this? Should I stop using Skype (for the time being)?
PS  This one really bugs me - it's "you're" - it means "you are" - "your" refers to possession as in "your views are questionable" which is different to "you're talking rubbish" - get it?

Maybe NOD32 does interfere with P2P programs ... but I'm not using any.
I contacted them about this and they asked me to re-install it in SAFE MODE and then run a full scan.
I did that, ran the scan which took over an hour, no problems.
I left NOD32 installed but within a day the processor slow-downs were getting irritatingly noticeable so it's gone again.
Shame, as it's meant to perform it's virus-scanning very well.

I'm impressed.
