  1. Could you go to it again if you see this message (to rule out it being a fluke)? It loads in a minimum of 7 seconds for me. The server is much closer to you though... I called godaddy and their response was pay up for virtual dedicated hosting Threaten to cancel, maybe that'll get their attention. I would expect better from GoDaddy.
  2. Economy hosting - 1 year renewal with linux. Maybe tell them your site is slow and see if they can move it to another server?
  3. Yes it will. Im with GoDaddy also. It was very easy to do. They walked me through it over the phone. Great customer service. On a side note, what is your website? Mine is VERY slow. My renewal is up at the end of the month so Im looking to go elsewhere. My current website is http://www.trophyshoponline.com - it does get slow at times as well but I use a redirect script to redirect traffic from trophyshoponline.com to trophyshoponline.com/site/ so I was assuming that was it. Is yours a business site?
  4. I'm under GoDaddy.com currently. I'll give them a call, thanks my friend. Also, if they click a link will it go to http://www.newsite.com/link.html ?
  5. I've always been slightly confused about this but I'll explain it the best I can. Say I currently have a hosting service that isn't fully used. I need to open a new site, but don't want to pay for more wasted space. I upload my new site (in /newsite/) to my server. I buy a domain name. I point the domain name http://www.newsitedomain.com to http://www.oldsite.com/newsite/index.html Now here's the question. When I go to http://www.newsitedomain.com, will it show in my address bar http://www.oldsite.com/newsite/index.html or http://www.newsitedomain.com/index.html? I'm pretty sure it'll show http://www.oldsite.com/newsite/index.html since the domain isn't pointing to the root of the server, but I'm not sure.
  6. He tried that (I did too) but on most sites it ignores that feature for the style of the site (such as this one).
  7. I'm sad to say I think the only way that you could get the text to be larger would be to use the old [CTRL]+Scroll method, but it's no where near permanent.
  8. She is using Firefox updated. I have not updated them to FF 3 yet. I am going to wait until it does it automatically. If I change the DPI do I leave the resolution at 1024 by 768? I think that is what you are saying. Everything has to be automatic or they will have a fit and mess everything up. Thanks for the reply Spazmatic. Yes this method will leave the resolution so that the icons and everything are smaller, the text will just be larger.
  9. If you go to Control Panel > Display, go to the advanced tab, then set your DPI higher than 96, this will make your text bigger but you will still have a higher resolution. I'm not 100% sure this will work in your browser but I'm almost positive. This method will change the desktop and all menus to this size text as well. What browser is she using? In Firefox my preferences stick just fine when changing options such as this. A problem about setting your font size is that most sites use different font sizes in a style sheet and those overwrite the browser's decision. If you go to somewhere like google, the setting will work. Somewhere like here won't since it's set in the CSS style sheet.
  10. I mostly just copy and pasted what you said and this is his reply: No. ISDN is a 2 wire trunk, both BRI and PRI. Bri has 2 64k channel and a data channel that you can use to carry things like x.25.- like all the 7-11's used to do with cc processing over x.25. PRI is 23 64k channels and a data channel. Let me make my point so as you can understand it, All of your neighbors crap terminates in the underground vault at the dslam. The dslam does not have UNLIMITED bandwidth to the Central office. The carrier for the ATM from the underground vault to the CO may not even be the ISP, but a 3rd party who charges for access and leases rackspace to the carrier. It may not even be ATM, but on aging slick that occasionally slips a time slot. The point is this, they are all prone to imperfections (dsl, fiber, cable, microwave) and unless you live within a mile from a central office they dont terminate there. Even if you live a mile from a co, you may be routed through some jerkoffs ATM because they own the access rights to your geographic area. To conclude, you may have the wicked awesome fiber from your house to the underground vault, which is incredibly awesometastic. But, the vault to the internet is a bottleneck that provides you the same server response time as cable or dsl. Its not like getting your own private point to point fiber optic connection to an OC3 backbone. Its still broadband speeds, thats all they will guarantee. Most ISPs dont own their entire network. They pay for traffic to localized areas, like your underground vault.
  11. I'm having a slight debate. I always thought DSL was dedicated until it hit the nearest ISP CO. Here's what he's telling me:
  12. Thanks for the tip. He's already over budget about $200 but I'll let him know.
  13. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16834198009 Is this a good deal, he's looking to spend 800-900 bucks, let me know what you think.
  14. I have a hard drive that a girl gave me to see if I could get anything off of it, because it stopped working in her computer. I have an external setup so I set up the HDD and my computer sees that there is a HDD connected, and it recognizes what kind and all that, installs drivers, and says it's ready to use, but then I can't find it in My Computer and my computer becomes very slow until I unplug that HDD. I have tried all sorts of jumper settings, (it has 16 settings) and I haven't found one that works. Is this drive truly dead? The HDD is an IBM Deskstar (deathstar, I know) 07N6654.
  15. I didn't realize this thread was so old =] Sorry for the bump.
  16. Basically you'd stick in your Windows CD, format the drive, and then install a fresh copy on the C: drive.
  17. Just for convenience I'd reinstall on the C drive, programs usually look for it to install stuff to, it'll say invalid path or something and you'll have to manually fix the C to be an F in the install path.
  18. I have near the same setup as you (quad core, 4gb) but I have a very low-budget video card...let us know how that one holds up, I was in the market for an 8600-8800GT.
  19. JSKY I appreciate your repsonse. I have noticed that my habitual programs such as World of Warcraft or Photoshop load much faster than they did when they were installed. It makes sense. I just wish HP's hard drives weren't so very loud, it's annoying at times. Edit: And by the way, thus far I've loved Vista. I came from WinXP Pro SP2 to Vista Ultimate, and I am not looking back. I think the people with problems with it simply don't have the power to run it efficiently
  20. What version of windows is this? Are you on the Administrative account?
  21. Do a CTRL+ALT+DELETE and head to the task manager. From there find Explorer.exe and terminate it. Go to "Run..." at the top left corner of the Task Manager box, type "explorer.exe" without the quotes, and hit run. Does everything come back?
  22. Did that a few hours ago, there are 16 programs running at start up, all of them (I believe) are necessary. By the way this machine is an HP 8010y, Quad core, 4 gb RAM, Windows Vista Ultimate.
