Tried this and it has some odd effects running in this manner:

All in all it doesn't feel quite right.

Is it like this if you install it properly?
-Carol Haynes (April 17, 2006, 05:26 AM)

I'm looking forward to see the first forum software applying something like Google Mail's auto-save feature! For those who aren't using Google Mail: it automatically saves a draft of what you have typed every two minutes or when you click the save button. Just a small step for forum soft, but a giant leap for users who don't save/copy long texts often enough!


FF has Save Text Area extension:

i havent tried it, probably it can autosave everything. :)

General Software Discussion / Re: Boot optimisation software
« on: April 14, 2006, 09:10 PM »
how long is your boot time now?
install Starter ,disable *all* the startup items and measure the boot time again, if it decreases to less than 25 seconds, then you dont need an optimiser, you only need to reduce the startup items.

my boot time is 20 secs, used to be 15 secs when xp was fresh.

just a word of cautious, Altiris screwed up my computer, corrupted proxo, firefox acting weird, thing is back to normal after i uninstall it.

i installed both Sandboxie and Altiris yesterday, i have not started using them and problems came up.

« on: April 05, 2006, 08:16 PM »
it could also be a software problem, were i you i'd image the drive, reintall xp and try to produce bsod in the new install.

the rename function in ExplorerXP is very user friendly.

mouser has explained it, thank you.
just a misunderstanding.

i didnt know this forum is affiliated with ad muncher, no wonder the opinions are bias.

« on: March 28, 2006, 06:21 PM »
the normal uninstall gives me enough problems, i uninstalled a cd burning program and after reboot i got bsod wtf, i think it removes some dlls but leave the registry entries or something.
luckily i had acronis TI.

« on: March 26, 2006, 05:10 PM »
1. if you use a router, you need to do port forwarding correctly, check this out:

2. if your ISP is throttling the line, you need to enable encryption, i suggest you use bitcomet, the fastest bittorent client, go to options>advanced>connection> set "protocal header encrypt" to always.

3. forget about azureus, it is bloated.

swf stream?
swf can stream mp3 and for video flv.

brotherS, when you say adblock, do you mean adblock plus?

AdBlock Plus vs. AdBlock Normal?

Ok, why don't you write a Proxomitron Mini-Review then? :) Is it as easy to set up?
i am not good at writing review, especially on a program like Proxomitron that capable of rewriting the whole webpage.

it is very easy to set up, no installation needed, just unzip, run it and set up the local proxy.

you can get proxo here:
and the lastest filterset here:

{Ed - I corrected the link}

ad muncher is no where close the the proxomitron, and proxo is free.

I hadn't seen this - are you seriously saying that any change of mobo (even a failure) means you lose your copy of Vista completely?
-Carol Haynes (March 20, 2006, 03:31 AM)

sorry for the wrong info, i think the new licence agreement applies to XP as well.

2/15/2006 Microsoft: Upgraded Motherboard = New Windows Licence

Microsoft recently made a change to the licence agreement saying that a new motherboard is equal to a new computer, hence you need to purchase a new Windows licence.

Here is what Microsoft has to say:

“An upgrade of the motherboard is considered to result in a “new personal computer” to which Microsoft® OEM operating system software cannot be transferred from another computer. If the motherboard is upgraded or replaced for reasons other than a defect, then a new computer has been created and the license of new operating system software is required.”

The reason Microsoft gave for this term is that “Microsoft needed to have one base component “left standing” that would still define that original PC. Since the motherboard contains the CPU and is the “heart and soul” of the PC, when the motherboard is replaced (for reasons other than defect) a new PC is essentially created.”

Microsoft sent a memo to its OEM partners asking them to enforce this new policy, every time they upgrade a computer for a client.


does drm really have anything to do with windows vista? i mean whatever drm technologies they add to drm will surely be added to the media player software, etc.  its not like the operating system is going to make the drm situation better or worse one way or the other as far as i know.

best solution to drm madness i guess is to boycott content protected with drm.
vista not only has software drm, it also has hardware drm, and everytime you change the motherboard, you need to purchase a new windows licence.
