  1. I had the oddest dream last night about besttechie.com. In the dream you decided to run adsense ads in two columns down both sides of your home page. I actually checked this morning to verify if it was really true. I think my current Google book I'm reading along with my constant though of marketing had an odd outcome
  2. I am about 1/4 of the way though "in the plex". If you enjoy business and technology you will really like it. http://www.amazon.com/Plex-Google-Thinks-Works-Shapes/dp/1455875732
  3. Thanks :-) A few months ago I would have said it was about 50/50 mix of laptops and desktops. Lately it seems like a much larger percentage laptops
  4. thanks. Merry Christmas to you also :-)
  5. when going from one client machine to the next, it is easier to stay standing up. We also have two workstations, 4 computers that we sit down at in the center of the shop my little chihuahua Red squeezing in the chihuahua bed
  6. Many days we will have 8 computers on the bench, but never 8 laptops. It looked cool(I'm a bit proud). For what its worth, 4 of the 12 on the bench are ours. We have one personal laptop for every 2 work stations for work log documentation(our system is run on google docs)
  7. I had a horribly outdated site done ages ago. So when I switched to Squarespace a couple of months ago, I started from scratch(mainly just writing content). When I switched templates last night, it took all of 10 minutes,
  8. I just switched themes for my website. I think it looks 500% better then the old one. We are using squarespace(all the techtv advertisng got me) My link
  9. thanks guys. I will mark all read and see what happens.
  10. Forums headings show having a new reply even when all topics in the forum heading are all read. Is this a known bug or just happening to me?
  11. I have a nexus 7, which I really like. I love my Galaxy Nexus phone. Maybe the nexus 10 would be a good choice.
  12. Do you plan on reviewing any pure android devices?
  13. I remember having a client machine with a very similar issue. after an xp system reload we did for a different reason, every time he would plug in his flatbed scanner(I think also his printer, I do not remember if flash drives did it) the computer would start to load the driver then crash. We ended up reloading a second time and it fixed the issue. I am not sure what the difference was between the first and second reload, but something. Maybe it was different chipset drivers? You may want to look at trying a second reload.
  14. that is great :-)
  15. You could disable automatic reboot on system failure, it may or may not reference a suspect .dll that is causing the issue. Since this is a clean install and you are immediately having issues, it is possible that you may have a failing hard drive or even ram(not likely). Those things are easy to test and rule out. You could also try using a pci usb card and see if that makes a difference. edit added later// not sure how different operating systems deal with drivers, but maybe that usb floppy is partially defective and does not play well with xp anymore(windows 7 plays well with it). it would be good to at least test it in a different xp sp3 machine(if available)
