3D Color Changer has something similar, but it's mainly geared towards changing Windows UI colors in "classic" mode. However, maybe you can use the extended palette in other apps. I haven't used it, so I can't comment any further.

surprising for a Norton product

Ditto!  :D

I guess this will first become standard in most security suites (not just Norton's) and then will be the default behavior of UAC in Windows 7

Hi again, gorin  :)

Ok, then it's probably simpler, but you'll need two tools/services to do that

1) Windows VPS monitoring: if your server can respond to remote pings, then it's fairly trivial. Just get *any* website/ping monitoring service and you're set. There are a number of free ones around, looks good. You can always check out the WebHostingTalk forum for more recommendations.

2) Restart notification: for this you'll probably need a software like the one I mentioned before (PA Server Monitor Free Edition) and keep it running on your VPS

It looks like PA Server Monitor Free Edition may suit you. Both for remote pinging to check the server availability and for being notified of server reboots (as long as you can connect to the Windows VPS Event Log). Of course, you'll have to have it running on another computer that you keep on 24/7 (may be another server, your own PC, etc.). It can be run as a service.
I haven't tried it, though, so i can't tell you how well it works, but it looks promising. If you install it, let us know how it goes.


No problem here. I updated FF to 3.0.2 yesterday and fortunately all of my 61 extensions (the list of which I uploaded the other day in this thread) work like a charm. I see that you and I have a few extensions in common, so you can (probably) discard those as the "offending" ones
By the way, I recommend the FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) for these cases. I'd likely speed up the process of reinstalling and testing the extensions quite a bit.

The very best way to read about these different CMS solution from people who actually used them is to go here http://www.opensourc...ask=view&id=2097 and for each solution, you will see user comments at the bottom. I spent a whole night browsing through them and reading these comments. Was truly the best way.

Yup, I agree with you.

But if you just want to do a quick feature-wise comparison of just about any CMS out there, CMS Matrix offers a very powerful search and comparison tool. You can compare up to 10 out of 961 (!) CMS on what must be like 100 different features. Worth taking a look.

General Software Discussion / Re: AVG vs TicTocTitle
« on: September 25, 2008, 12:51 AM »
I uploaded TicTocTitle.exe to to see if any other AV gave a false positive of the file.
Link to the results: http://www.virustota...f3821494004e279a7395

3 out of 36 AVs detected it as at least a suspicious file. But AVG was not one of them. Maybe they use a different version than sazzen.

Hi, everyone!

(BTW, I'm not actually "new" here. I just changed my nick to make it the same I use in other forums, but I only had about 20 posts in a couple of years, so it's not like I was a "regular" with my previous nickname)

Anyway, on to the subject, I'm afraid I have to confess that I may have a Firefox extensions addiction ...  :P  I didn't browse this whole topic, but it seems I may be the one who has more extensions installed  :o
I currently have about 60 extensions running and surprisingly (or not) Firefox is very stable and responsive. The only "symptoms" are a slight delay in the start up, but no more than 3 or 4 seconds. Memory usage (Private Bytes as reported by Process Explorer) is fairly low too, a little less than 300 KB with over 70 tabs open.

I was planning to post the list here but it'd probably be overwhelming - and take a whole page of the thread. So instead I'm attaching the file with the list so anyone interested may download it. The list was generated by the extension suggested by Curt a couple of posts ago (thanks for the tip   :Thmbsup: )

And please tell me I'm not the one with the most extensions. Someone has to come up and top me!  ;D
