The quicj beiwb foc jumps over tge lazy fog.
N. S. Radieaux: - I have a bit more room for improvement. What are the best typing tutors (through browser or free Mac app) for this sort of training?
Barakku: Is there any way to take a bootable ISO for a CD and convert it to a USB stick I can boot from? Lenovo unhelpfully provides the latest driver for my SSD only on a bootable ISO despite the fact that this model doesn't have an optical drive.
Barakku: Is the problem because you don't know the keys in general or because you don't know the keyboard in particular?
N. S. Radieaux: Barakku: Is the problem because you don't know the keys in general or because you don't know the keyboard in particular?I'm a quick typist as long as I can look at the keyboard and see which keys are which. Problems arise when I only look at the screen.

Barakku: I'm trying to figure how what I should do to optimize performance,
paleryder69: Best way is to try things that work for you.
Barakku: I'm not sure what I can do to decrease that
paleryder69: For me the boot time is not an issue. I am not that impatient. I like my bells and whistles to load at boot.
N. S. Radieaux: Thanks to all for the advice -- it arrived today. Now I have another question: This designed-with-MS-in-mind keyboard, supposedly rigged to play well with OS X, has the eject command mapped to F12. For reasons too complicated to explain, I want it mapped to F15. Simplest way to accomplish this?
Barakku: Is there an option to skip that boot scan for MS Security Essentials?
paleryder69: Ok I will wade in way over my head... its your bios. If it is not getting through post then something is tripping over the card installation during post. Make sure your raid settings are correct in the bios. Typically when a MB boots up it takes so much time to detect hardware, if the hardware does not answer in the correct amount of time it may consider the hardware faulty or it might be answering in an unexpected way. This may be what is causing the reboots during post. Check to see what version of BIOS you have on that MB and what is on the MB where it works. If they are the same manufacturer but a different version, you may want to contact the BIOS maker for an updated BIOS.Oh yeah one other thing to try, put in a generic video card and take out the Radeon card or swap the slots to see if that makes a difference. That's my .02 worth.
Mike: I've heard of some PCI-E x16 mobo slots only accepting video cards and nothing else. If there's a dedicated x8 or x4 slot, use that for the LSI card.Also see if there's updated firmware for the LSI card.(googles the mobo)OK, so only two x16 slots. Is the Radeon in the blue one or the orange one? Chances are the SAS2 card will need to be in the orange one.(I love all the "ultra durable" stuff on that board... yet it doesn't support ECC memory?)
TehNacho: Weaksauce. Apparently the wife managed to pickup 'my security engine' on her Windows 7 Home Premium equipped Laptop.Fortunately, she at the very least did not provide them with a credit card number and none of the machines on our network that had ever had numbers on them were powered on at the time, so hopefully it will not spread...At any rate I am going to give removing it a shot, bleepingcomputer.com has some instructions I think I can follow...but what security suites can y'all recommend for windows 7 home premium?
Barakku: MS Security essentials seems great, though you can't customize it much (if your wife isn't great with computers, it's perfect due to that) though I currently don't like how hard it is to turn off. That's arguably a feature but I'm picky.I'm also trying Panda Cloud Antivirus, it seems sweet but I haven't had much experience with it. Also very simple, and not very resource intensive due to the cloud.And just use Windows Firewall, I don't recommend using a third party one for non-business use, just don't turn it off.
Mike: Dunno about security suites, but malwarebytes antimalware is pretty good at cleaning one-off malware up.
Barakku: I dunno about their other products, but reviews seem to favor the reliability of Panda Security--that tends to be based on their detection % rather than performance though. Only thing I know is that you shouldn't use the Cloud scanner, watch House on hulu while backing up your files via network. All of the steps individually made sense...
Mike: Just use a separate access point w/ a switch in it -- no real point in trying to combine it and the cable modem in one box...
Thought of just a switch Mike... but ended up getting a SB6120 modemn, netgear wireless N 4 port router, and a netgear pci card for the video recording server going upstairs. My wireless speeds are testing between 6mb & 8mb on the server. I had to go with a router instead of a switch... I need to set DHCP settings for the IP cameras & video converter or however they work (cousin's doing the camera setup and install).... attempting the install today! wish me lucks
JSTACAT: anyone else notice how scripts & cookies, esp from ad networks, f***bk are becoming inter linked so that if adblock or NS blocks one, the rest of the site becomes unuseable.yahoo has a new script wagon, others are following suit.F***bk and google scripts are on an ever burgeoning number of large and not so large sites.it will soon be required to allow F***bk and Dblclk & etc to use the internet.How did f***bk get such privilege? [ad companies get to ride coat tails].well its a highly effective tracing and tracking tool...actively pursuing linux, but same issue crops up [FF]well maybe its time for oopera on linux...down with F**bk?no' i'm not down with itF**k it,I'd rather be a Cat
JSTACAT: TehNacho [TotalFark] 2010-05-08 05:11:14 PMI'm a bit sensitive to the subtle intrusions.blocking ads on Yahoo can make the site useless on the computer that has it. so i am on a nother xp box...not blocking so many scripts. Everything works now.maybe i will use w2k and treat it like a web tvso far, yahoo is a problem on linux, flash is needed for parts of the site..kinda sad linux is having problems with scripts.. cant use yahoo on it just installed,there are new ad scripts, fbcdn is there and on many others incl Fark.
JSTACAT: so far, yahoo is a problem on linux, flash is needed for parts of the site..
Mike: Right, so WTF just happened, for those that care...Lots of our HTML forms have encrypted form variables that have expiration times coded in them, both in the values and in the variable names. This is to make it much harder to write spambots that flood (Total.)Fark with link submissions selling zOMGCHEAPV14GRA...Basically the expiration time is stuck in the encrypted string as a 32-bit int (using Perl's pack() function), with a fixed value subtracted from it to get around the Y2038 32-bit rollover problem -- so the timestamp fits into 24 bits right now. (I economized here vs just going 64 bits to keep the form vars/vals shorter. They're pretty long as it is...)Sometime late last night, the most significant half of that rolled over from 0x00BF to 0x00C0. Unfortunately 0xC0 is significant in UTF-8 and marks the beginning of a two-byte character sequence, so when these were all put into strings, suddenly all these 32-bit ints were being treated as Unicode characters, which caused the decoding logic to drop a byte and then shift the rest over by a few bits, so it thought every form variable had expired 32768 seconds sooner than they actually had -- and ta-da! Everyone's a bot!Anyway, once tweak to force everything to bytes instead of characters and things are all happy now.It took a while to get to because two unrelated issues overnight (mostly a FreeBSD kernel bug causing our dev server to crash repeatedly) kinda screwed my sleep up, so it took a little extra for me to wake up and hear all the automated texts coming into my phone telling me about it...
Mike: so it thought every form variable had expired 32768 seconds sooner
JSTACAT: It seems the java is messed up...
