  1. do you know what your pipline burst is on the motherboard?? I know my pipeline on my gigabyte Mobo is a 512k cache, with 333 MHz FSB. If you don't know, check your mobo specs in the manual or run a program like Everest or Aida32

    here is the list of things that Ubuntu has integrated FF into that needs to be completely rebuilt. 51 source packages in total. Most likely all of these need to be rebuilt to say the least, if they're compatible with 1.5 at the source level at all... I'm hoping people are seeing why backporting Firefox 1.5 is going to be such a major job This will be included straight up in Dapper when it is released in June. they had to push it back 6 weeks.
  3. nero will burn at the highest rate that the computer can handle, for example my burner will accept 12x but the highest I have ever gotten it to go was 8x. it all depends on the cache, the ram, and the pipeline for the CPU

    don't knock Vtec. While I was working for Honda they sold the Vtec designs to GM in exhange for OnStar. those Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (vtec) engines really do improve the gas mileage and power.

    heh, ya know Marty, I never thought about that until you brought it up. for that matter, even though it seems to be the rage to buy Jeans already with holes in them currently, I remember having those iron on patches put on the holes in the knees of my jeans when I was a kid. Those were always the first place to wear through as we were growing up. Felt like you had plastic coating on the knees of your jeans when you were doing anything.

    being a winsock error, I can tell by looking at your log it wasn't related to any malware on the system. At least that is usually visible with HJT. If they had Newdotnet on there and then removed it incorrectly, that would corrupt the winsock setting. Glad you were able to get it working again.

    that was the status in Hoary, it was listed as 1.0.2 with all the fixes that actually made it 1.0.4 so in order to get the extensions and themes to download we had to modify that one string. In Breezy it is 1.0.7 with the fixes up to that point. they have taken FF and done the same thing that Windows did with IE and the OS. if you want 1.5.01 on breezy you have to install it from source or using Advantix. then you have to link everything to it. you cannot just remove ff 1.0.7 from Ubuntu since it is integrated into the OS.

    Xp As A Second Os

    this should help you get that taken care of. its a lengthy process and you have to have you Windows ME installation disk available. If you dont' then your best bet is to just do a full clean install of XP and dump ME. http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sg_clean.asp

    This Is For Anyone Who Was Born After 1986

    thats why parents need to be more pro-active about the time their kids spend on the net. I let my 5 year old play on the net, but he can only go to specifically chosen sites by either me or my wife. When he is on the computer I come in here and see what he is doing about every 10 to 15 minutes or so. If I see a site I don't feel he should be on, he either changes to an approved site or loses the computer for the rest of the night. And he will never have a computer in his own room connected to the net. Net access will only be allowed on this machine or my laptop. i may be strict by some parents standards, but thats being a parent, watching out what your kids do, who they talk to, and where they go. Some people call that being over protective, I call it being a parent. When he gets older I will also install a keylogger, without his knowledge, on this computer to track where he goes and what he does.

    hiya TK, Well from the looks of the HJT log, that computer is clean. Have you tried doing a connection repair? if they are on DSL or Cable you can go to start>control panel>network and internet connections>network connections. right click on the local area connection and choose repair. also check the following: click on start>run then type cmd after the dos window comes up type ping followed by a website address of your choice. Let us know what if any packet loss there is.

    I'm actually not using the current stable version of Debian (sarge), but, Etch which is the testing branch. So far I've found it to be very stable and haven't encountered any bugs yet. Etch is quite modern, it is using the 2.6.15 kernel and KDE 3.5.1. But, yeah Fire Fox 1.0.7 won't have all of the bells and whistles that 1.5 has. Have you encountered any bugs in the apps from the SID repos, t0c? If SID is okay I'll upgrade to the unstable branch in awhile. if it is 1.5 but listed as 1.07 then you can change the useragent in ff to 1.5 Browse to about:config Change the "general.useragent.vendorSub" value to "1.5.01" although, since i don't use Debian, i'm not sure if that is how they have it set up. I know this was how we took care of a similar issue in ubuntu, it was listed 1.0.2 when it was actually 1.0.4 and we couldn't get any of the extensions or themes. hth

    Cd For Linux

    If you just ordered Ubuntu it will be version 5.10. correct, They will post in the shippit order area what version you are ordering, if it's a preorder, they have it listed as such. btw, Hitest, orders for Dapper will be available in June. They have pushed the release date by six weeks.

    This Is For Anyone Who Was Born After 1986

    I can't tell you the number of times where one of my kids sat there and threatened to call child services on me for punishing them. I'm still a firm believer in the occasional swat on the rear if it's something serious enough to require it. Last time one of my kids did that, I picked up the phone, dialed the number and said "Here ya go, shoot your mouth off" the cops showed up and told him straight up. "You have two choices, listen to your father, or he can bring you up on adult abuse charges." These kids now a days take the law for granted, until the law tells them that they are wrong. at least that's how it has happened in my case.

    Cd For Linux

    on average it takes up to the full 8 weeks to receive the disks from Ubuntu. Although I have a bad tendancy of pre-ordering mine for the new version they release every 6 months. so mine tends to be around 2 or 3 months.

    Tiger direct will ship to Canada, although in my opinion they are more expensive compared to NewEgg. Here are some other sites that ship to Canada. http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/m...ategory_Code=WC http://www.directron.com/index.html http://piloshop.ca/inkjetcartridges/cPath/6.html <--don't let the name in the link fool ya, they sell computer parts too.

    My War With Powerpoint

    why fix it? they are more worried about their Xbox and Windows Vista to worry about a program they designed for presentations. IMHO, OpenOffic.Org is the way to go for those. but once again you are still in the same boat. I have to agree with the infranview idea, it would be a quick way to do it, but regardless of how you still have to replace the images in the pp files with the bmp files.

    This Is For Anyone Who Was Born After 1986

    I tell ya, if only we had it this easy when we were growing up. I remember when the color monitor came out for a computer, 8 bit graphics, as close as you could get to the type of graphics they had on the video games at the arcades. 10 cents to play a pinpall game, 25 cents to play a video game, and you waited in line at the arcade to play the newest one. sometimes up to 2 hours before you got on it. ya know, I never realized how much I missed the days when I was growing up until now. If we had the tech that these kids do now, life would have been sweet. I remember my mom going to school to learn how to run a punch key for the new computer at her job. what a pain, had these little cardboard cards you had to punch holes in so the computer would calculate the info and return the grades. These were how you told a computer what to do, A keyboard was on an Organ or Piano.

    This Is For Anyone Who Was Born After 1986

    I was born before the 80's too. I still remember the styrofoam cartons that Big Macs came in, you could go to your local pharmacy and buy a malt for $1.50, and you got two glasses worth out of one order. The only people who had computers were working for the government. My first computer was an apple ][e. To play Super Mario, Super Mario Brothers you had to go to the local arcade. you could buy bubble gum balls for a penny, Snickers bars for 39 cents, and a gallon of gas was 65 cents. gas choices consisted of Regular (which contained Lead), Unleaded or Diesel. Richard Petty was the Nascar driver everyone wanted to be like. you could buy a house for $40,000 or less, a brand new car at the dealer cost $2000. You paid 50 cents to see a movie. Of course I also remember when Cd's came out, you couldn't buy one for less then $40 and that was after you paid $250 for the cd player to connect to your stereo. If you wanted an album, you bought a record and you had to replace those friggin turntable needles once a month if you played it alot. I personally blame the internet for illiteracy. One thing that post i made forgot to mention, was if you wanted to talk to a friend while you were out, you had to use a payphone, or go to their house, you couldn't afford a cell phone unless you were rich, but then again, you didn't have a cell phone unless you had it installed in your car either. FM radio stations were something new, and the stereo to handle it cost $150. Minimum wage was $3.50 an hour.

    Ubuntu 5.04

    or in my case, work at making your own distro for your system, it's kinda fun mixing distros together to get what you want, just remember you want the same base system for all parts in my case debian.

    Ubuntu 5.04

    yes for some reason the crystal sound chips don't work well with ubuntu. what they have actually recommended is to try a different sound card. Some linux distros don't really care for on-board sound card/chips.
