This should have you up and running with Google Talk on iChat. The default advanced settings worked for me. The only issue is the password appears to be sent insecurely, which iChat will warn you about.
ikwonxp, I recommend a repair install of Windows XP using the OEM CD that came with your computer. A repair install replaces the system files with the ones from the CD, including explorer.exe. This also means you will have to reapply Service Pack 2 and any other updates unless they have been slipstreamed into your CD.
For full repair instructions, visit here.
This is old…from your post Spike, it does sound like it was just released yesterday while it has been around for months.
You say the express version will be free even when it is completed, but Microsoft has said they will be “low-cost and will continue to be easy to acquire.” So they will not be free, but they are for the beta…much like Visual Studio Professional is. (but you pay S & H)
The whole Visual Studio 2005 looks promising, Microsoft has a great piece of software on their hands…much better than 2003 in my opinion. I've used VS 2005 Professional Beta 1 which I have CDs for…not the express betas, but they can't be much different. A worthwhile download. 🙂
I know this is off topic, but one time you are Grant6 and the last post you are Grantg. Are you the same person, or different?
Pictures cannot be viewed in AIM profiles through the client. The “pictures” in that persons profile are ASCII art, images created with text. You can find some of that here. Google around for ‘ASCII art' and you will find tons of images you could use in your profile and elsewhere.
I must say, it is rather nice. Nice job to all who have made this possible.Quote:quote:Originally posted by detn8r
The basic statement here, is that the United States needs to pull it's head out of it's ass and set it's priorities straight. The people in Asia need the money NOW. We are not arguing that the United States doesn't pay for the most world relief, we are saying it can't live up to its “40 something percent” it shelled out last year. Why do you think people are pissed off? You think the Asians care, you think Australians, Canadians or hell.. even the British that their prime minister is an American ass kisser?
The US has 20% of the world purchasing power and fronted 40% of the damn bill last year for relief aid! The US has the messed up priorities, where is the rest of the world's share? If your point here is that the Asians need the money now, they won't be getting it from ANY nation immediately. It doesn't happen immediately. Those expectations are unrealisitic, from any nation. Bush can't legally say “You! Send money here.” and get away with it. Even the Iraq war wasn't argued overnight. I am saying the world needs to wake up and realize that when the value of the dollar falls and the US economy fails, which it will soon once that debt gets higher, that 40% of the bill payment will be gone.Quote:quote:
The United States way of dealing with stress? “CHARGE IT!” – “HIRE ANOTHER ASSHOLE”
The rest of the world dealing with stress? “America, butt out!” and then “America you lazy bum, we want money!”
Ok. In reality, no money can be spent on this from the United States anyway. Because of Bush's no-tax, but spend anyway policies, there is no real money to be spent on anything. Our congress sits there and borrows it all and adds it to their little credit card so the future of the US can pay it off later. So sure, the US can be as nice as they want and bill themselves and their children as many millions of dollars as they want to help pay for disaster, but the money itself isn't going to be worth anything if we just charge it to our credit card. I think we should stop shovelling this crap around like the US can pay for everyone all the time. The US cannot even pay for itself. (Try about $25,000 per citizen. I don't think that is a reasonable tax, for anyone.)
Ok, if the US is so rich, which I assume we arrive to this conclusion through GDP, then the US is responsible for approx. 21% of the world's GDP. Yet we paid 40% of last year's relief aid!? We are hardly greedy, it seems as if the other nations of this world are not keeping up with their “duty,” or does that double standard not apply?
PS. Only 3% of our GDP goes to military expenditures det. This puts as in 37th among world countries. I think that is pretty good considering we are fighting two wars, no?Quote:quote:Originally posted by David
Fedora Core 3. There is nothing to say – it's awesome.
Completely agree. I wasn't too fond of FC1 or 2. Each had their own problems with my machines. FC3 works great on my laptop but not on two other systems of mine because of bad drivers with the Intel 810 graphics. Oh well, still very nice distro. 🙂
It is far from over. Suprnova was, and still is, working on a way to entirely decentralize BitTorrent in the way Kazaa had their network set up. Many other tracker sites I am a member of have stopped accepting new users and are locking down based on IPs. Though the loss of Suprnova is bad, it definitely is not over. Even if we lose other sites like lokitorrent and torrent3x, it still has its legitimate uses. 😉
On a larger scale, the MPAA and RIAA can never stop this. The shut down Napster, FastTrack comes around. They corrupt FastTrack, then AresGalaxy, BitTorrent, eMule, Gnutella and others appear. In the grand scheme of it all, there will be another Suprnova-like site. Trackers will exist until they are no longer needed, and then…well…the RIAA will need to find a new way to stop it all. Heck, anyone these days with an internet connection can be a tracker.
Edit: This decentralization I mentioned was as you said, “Exeem.” I doubt it is scrapped until Suprnova gets rid of IRC and the forums.
Keep up the great posts Martin. Congrats!
While it is ugly, it has an interesting feature. It has what appears to be the beginning of Gecko/IE integration which could theoretically allow for Windows Update to be run in Netscape, and other ActiveX “features”.
Damn. I love it!
I'm installing it right now…this could get interesting.
Apple had a student offer for back to school that allowed you to get an iBook and iPod together for a discount…
Otherwise, I have no idea why they don't have sales, but they do have promotional products like the U2 iPod.Quote:quote:Originally posted by DyingInAPromise
It's been like that for a long time with me, Except it was written differently and you had to type somthing to it when it pops up, and then it would say somthing like Type 1 to sign off other locations.
It was like this for a while…with everyone (at least all of my SNs)…it just never told you.
