And Dave, never change, the minute Dave gets a sense of humour, I tell you the earth will stop turning or freeze over, not sure but it will be something, very dramatic. I can see the next Hollywood blockbuster!
Ps Have a great 2010 everyone x
lol 😮 I wasn't even trying to … ruin anything. I'm just trying to say that the parallel exists, and that (going off of what Jeff said), people are exploring the medium and social networking mimics real socialization. Finding out that not everyone is interesting will drive the next iteration of social networks.
And while ‘keeping close to people by hearing about the little things' may seem great, it doesn't scale well. Maybe I just don't want to feel close to everyone? And this comes back to it being what you make of it, and who you are interested in. I recently unfollowed two people who tweet 10-30 times per day, way too much noise. I might be interested, but that drowns out other, more important, people.
Another core problem is the variation in topics. I'd love to hear about what project someone is doing at work, but I definitely don't care about their dumb relationship bull****, leave that out.
So everyone is saying the same thing… social networking is what you make of it. Is that really a surprise? Some people like to share everything, but isn't that like the people who just won't shut up IRL? While there are a whole ton of idiots on Twitter, there are also a whole ton of idiots on Facebook, and in life. Everyone has a voice now, and most people aren't worth listening to.

I found another neat one last week. It's call “Bump” and it lets you bump hands with another iPhone user to exchange contact info. It's free, but the downside is that it only works with other iPhone users, and they also have to install Bump.
Bump is great, except I've yet to find someone with the app who I didn't already have their contact info. (Hint: don't bump with someone who already exists in your contacts… not pretty)
Since this thread is so old, I'll list my must-have apps when I wipe a phone:
– TWC (Best free weather app imo)
– Shazam (hey what song is playing?)
– EchoFon (Still my fav twitter client – it's clean)
– iTalk (VoIP SIP client)
And on the jailbreak side…
– LockLight Cydget (This lets you double-tap the home button while the phone is locked to bring up the screen brightness and turn the background all white – a perfect quick flashlight)
– GV Mobile (Google Voice)
Thanks Jeff!!! I got my QuickReply back too. 🙂
Every message, reply etc looks like this.
(I also messed this one up)
Not sure if this is related or not, but a new feature of the Audio stack on Windows 7 is ‘Ducking', which attempts to intelligently adjust sound output for applications not involved with the active call. More information is here: Windows 7 Sound: Stream Switching in the Real World
Another possibility is that the volume is adjusting because you're too close to the microphone. I'm not aware of any facility in WLM that does this, however.
Or middle-click the link.
Fonts may be stored anywhere on the system, but are generally installed to C:WindowsFonts. The arrow in the corner indicates that the font is not located in the Window Fonts folder, but rather somewhere else on the disk. Right click and select properties to determine where the Font file is actually located. What has likely happened is that the Fonts have been deleted or no longer exist at the location referenced, and you're left with a shortcut to nowhere.

I'm not sure what to tell you on the locked files. It may be safer not to try and move them. It's possible they have been infected and that's why they can't be moved. You could try booting in Safe mode to see if they can be moved that way.
This is unlikely. Files in the ‘My Documents' folder are private, meaning access is restricted only to the user who created them. Getting access to these files is as easy as taking ownership. The process of taking ownership is documented here: How to take ownership of a file or a folder in Windows XPQuote:Make sure you disconnect from the internet while you do the reinstall of XP.
I'm not really sure why you'd need to? Potentially virus-ridden files won't spontaneously execute, and not having internet is just going to stop Windows Update from immediately getting high-priority updates.

As Doris mentioned, the key here is to Format the disk before the new copy of Windows is installed. Not doing so is generally not problematic, just remove ‘c:Windows.old' once you are finished saving the contents.
You'll definitely need drivers for your R40, which you can find here. Lenovo Support & downloads – Drivers and software – ThinkPad R40, R40e Since you already loaded a copy of Windows onto the computer, I'll assume you know all about re-installing drivers.
Is that much packet loss considered normal for your ISP? Have you asked them?
Anything greater than say 5% would be considered high, and having to resend up to a quarter of transmitted data means your effective speed is reduced and latency increased.
Having at one time had Clearwire, I would suggest ensuring that the modem has as much signal as possible, and that you aren't using the connection for other bandwidth-intensive tasks.

Who gives a crap about those new features (they're great), it's fast like 1.0 again! 2.2 is what should have shipped with the iPhone 3G.
So you tap the power key, and the screen only partially turns on? (is the backlight off, or is it physically displaying black pixels?).
If you can't even get it to POST, then it's more than likely the motherboard, processor or memory… since it's a laptop, your best bet is to talk to HP and see how much they'll charge to look at it.
