Guess I'm SOL then. Just one of the many perks of owning your own domain name. ;D

Edit: wow, I just checked my spam folder, and found 7 more... :o

That kind of sucks to hear, but I was almost expecting that.

Living Room / Someone may be maliciously using my domain name
« on: June 29, 2012, 12:44 PM »
Recently I have been getting returned mail delivery errors stating that "somerandomname(at)mydomainnamehere(dot)com" could not be delivered, because the recipient doesn't exist. I know for a fact that this is not my doing, because I use, and am the admin of the google apps account that creates email accounts for my domain name, and none of the accounts that are sending these emails are real. So I am guessing someone is spoofing their email address and using my domain name to do it. I looked at the returned mail email error, and it said the email was mailed-by host102(dot)host102-server(dot)com.

There was a file attached to the error message that apparently gives me more information on the person who is doing it. Their name is apparently Phoebe Henry, and the reply to address is Annette Thompson.

I won't attach the file here, because it has this Annette person's email in it. If someone wan'ts me to though, I can remove their email, and then attach the file here.

any help on how to put an end to this would be much appreciated. I don't want this person/people to send an email to a real person, and have me take the blame for it.

Living Room / Re: Old Hard Drives

Boat anchor? lol, jk. I like the idea of ripping them apart and playing with the magnets. I might have to do that to my old dead drives.

Adblock Plus (beta) - I hate ads
Fullscreen address bar - I wish chrome was more like FF in fullscreen
Hover Zoom - I look at devart profiles almost everyday, and this makes it so I don't have to open each image separatly.
Live CSS Editor - For when people think white text on a black background is a good idea.
RSS Subscription Extension (by Google) - because chrome doesn't support rss by default (wtf?!)
View Image Info (properties) - because chrome doesn't have a view image info by default (again wtf?!)
WOT - because I hate evil websites.
StumbleUpon - For when I am bored and have nothing else to do.

I ran web platform installer and told it to install php. I'm going to see if I can figure out what perms php has, and see if that fixes it.

I'm running a website on a windows server 2008 R2 box. I have wordpress installed on it, and if I upload an image, the uploaded image gets the required permissions (iusr and iis_iusrs both have permission to touch it.)
I am experimenting with a CMS that doesn't use a database (testing gpeasy right now) So far everything seems to work great with it, but when I upload images via the CMS' built in image uploader, iis_iusrs isn't added to the list of users that can touch the image. This causes the image to not be viewable. Is there a way that I can fix this so that any files that are added by the CMS will auto allow both iusr and iis_iusrs to touch them?
It's really annoying having to remote into the server just to fix the permissions every time I want to upload an image, and I don't really want to stay with wordpress, because it runs too slow on iis (at least on my server it does).

well thats weird. my email digests never did that. I always thought youtube was broken. I guess it's just my account thats messed up.

but does it show playlists and shows you are subscribed to? I used to get those emails (not sure why I don't anymore) and I don't really remember ever seeing the playlists I subscribed to showing up in those emails either.

Thats what I assumed it was for but:
It doesn't do anything. Back when youtube had the subscription box, the subscribed shows/playlists wouldn't show up in the sub box, and with the new (terrible) homepage, they don't show up either.

I've noticed that there is a subscribe button on youtube playlist pages, and on show pages. I don't see what the point is. It doesn't do anything. Back when youtube had the subscription box, the subscribed shows/playlists wouldn't show up in the sub box, and with the new (terrible) homepage, they don't show up either.

I had the permissions problem also, but ever since I disabled the UAC, I now own my computer again, and I can save files anywhere I want.

General Software Discussion / Re: uTorrent alternatives?
« on: February 23, 2012, 06:11 AM »
Im using uTorrent 3.1.2 build 26773 and the only ad for the plus version I see is a small box in the lower left corner. The previous few versions have been the same way. :Thmbsup:

ie. Instead of maybe just suffering a filesystem aberration on a single system 4kB file that is, possibly, easily fixable, you could now suffer it on a multi-GB file where a single corruption will render the whole thing useless.
I did not think of that.

With ultimate or enterprise you can add the vhd with bcdedit as a boot option
Thats also available with professional which is what I have. I did that when I tried out windows 8 dev preview.

edit:well what do you know. Upon further research, I just found out that I can't do any of this. You can only install ult and ent on a bootable vhd.

Now that I crammed the entire topic of this post into that massive title, I can get onto the post.
If you are like me, you hate having to activate windows every time you reinstall it. That is why I used driveimagexml to back up my fresh install of windows 7. Now whenever I need to reinstall windows, I just format my drive and restore the image I made, and I don't have to activate windows again.

Just today however, I ran across this website that gave a tutorial on howto install windows to a bootable vhd with no previous os.
That gave me an idea. What if I were to take my 2TB drive, and empty it of any files, and then create a vhd, install and activate windows on that vhd, and then create a copy of this vhd file. That way the next time I need to reinstall windows, all I would have to do is delete the copied vhd file, and make a new copy of the original vhd file. I then just make that copy bootable and have a fresh clean os.

My question is, would this be a viable alternative to making a driveimagexml image of my fresh activated windows?

The more I looked at it (also thanks to wraith's site) I think I will most likely get the 560. It's starting to look a lot better.

Living Room / Re: Need some video card buying advice

Well that helps me out a ton! :Thmbsup: I guess I am leaning more towards the 560 since it sounds better than.

Living Room / Need some video card buying advice
« on: October 23, 2011, 01:11 PM »
I'm specing out a new gaming computer because my current computer is kind of old, and I can't really play newer games on it very well.
I've got everything picked out that I want, but I don't really know exactly what I am looking at when it comes to graphics cards, so I have two picked out
I was wondering which one would be better of the two.

the first one is the GeForce GTX 560
the second one, and is the one I am leaning towards more is the GeForce GTX 550 Ti
As far as I can tell, the 550 card has better specs than the 560 card, except for the stream processors and the memory interface.

Which card would you guys suggest? or if you can find another card that is better (preferably nvidia) that is not more expensive than the 560 ($189.99)

(on a side note, I wish they would switch the free offers. the card I kind of want more comes with a free benchmark tool, while the other comes with Arkham City, which I really want)

Google docs? It has it's own version of powerpoint.

Well done!

It's amazing just how annoying we let the small things become.

lol, I know I'm terrible when it comes to getting annoyed by small things :P

Good news everyone! I figured out the culprit! Virtualbox was causing the icon to mess up. I went on a rampage and started uninstalling anything that added a network interface (hamachi and and virtualbox were all I had) as soon as I uninstalled virtualbox (don't remember the exact version, 4.something) the icon changed to the spinning blue circle, and then showed my wifi signal strength! *Happy Face*  ;D Kinda mad that virtualbox is the culprit tho, I really liked it. I guess it isn't to bad though, because I never really used it on my laptop, I used it more on my desktop. I'm just glad I got my icon working now.

I've had kind of this problem, the network, (LAN), icon sits there with the spinning donut saying it's still trying to get an IP from the DHCP server, (never mind that it's manually assigned  ::) ).

It seems to revert to normal after a few system boots, (in the normal course of usage).

It's currently sitting there with an exclamation mark telling me the Unidentified Network, (VirtualBox), has no Internet access, (well's not running), yet other times it will look completely normal, (with VirtualBox not running).

I think it comes down to it just being borked....just like it's always been.
Thats windows for you. I guess Im just going to have to deal with it. I haven't installed enough garbage on my laptop yet to slow it down enough for me to need to reinstall windows yet, so I'll just have to live with it until then

just tried ccleaner, after restarting the explorer process and also restarting windows, the stupid icon is still messed up  :'(

I've checked the add/remove program list, and never ran across  Bonjour. I guess I could look again to be sure. What would I need to do to check if it is an icon cache corruption?

edit:just got home from college, and when I woke up my laptop (from the screensaver, not standby or hibernation) the icon has now changed to the icon of the signal bars with the yellow * on top.
edit2:after restarting my laptop, the icon is now back to the red x

1. I tried disabling it, and restarted (problem still there)
2. I have a third party tool, not for my built in wifi, it is for my usb card that I use to connect my ds to the internet.
3. I hate iTunes, and therefore do not have it installed.

2b. I uninstalled the third party tool, and after restarting my laptop, the problem is still there.
