  1. If you program with C++.Net in VS than yes it is. Spend maybe 30 minutes or so on the GUI and the rest of your efforts go towards coding the actual use for the app. Like I said, its drag and drop. Grab a button, put it on the form. Double-click the button and start typing the code for it...

  2. Well there's always Visual Studio with Windows forms applications and toolbox with drag and drop form controls.

    Though with your experience with python I doubt you'd want to learn how to program for Windows only. Anyone else got a better idea? I'm actually interested myself in this. Something like VS that could be used to develop cross-platform applications.

  3. Putty's interface has a bunch of crap to configure and this app is nice and simple.

    Everytime I open up Putty I get a headache. They really do need to redo thier interface.

    Kudos to the OP for the program and apologies for my inital recommendation to just use putty. Your program is obviously a lot more simplified and pratical for quick use whenever needed.

  4. I got a copy, but I'm not about to post it up to get in trouble. Hope you understand....

    Best of luck with your studies. Why the heck are they teaching you vb6? You should be learning vb.net, most preferably 2008 though thier already working towards the 2010 version of visual studio.... its just about impossible to keep up with these things.

    Make sure you take what you learn in vb6 and play around in vs 2008 at home so get used to the differences between the two since .net is the present and future.

  5. Create a task to start outlook five minutes after you've logged in or one to start a bat that in turn schedules a task to start outlook after 5 mins.

    Useful thread, thanks for posting. 35 different places in the registry alone for auto-start though? No wonder so many viruses are hard to counteract once they get on and deep into a system.

  6. Hey, I've had a DS for awhile, but I rarely ever play it. I'm not really a gamer, so probably the only thread you'll get from me in the gaming forum :) I have a little bit of time during classes I'm taking, and would like to actually start using it.

    I'd preferably like any recommendations for best games on the DS platform that you can just sti down and start playing... not story rpg/role games that take hours and hours or never end, as I don't have time for those and usually get short tempered with playing such games when I suck at them horribly.

    As aid for helping a gaming noob, fighting type games have always been interesting to me. I grew up playing hours on end with tekken on the PS one ages ago. I have Picross for the DS, which is basically a puzzle game that I really enjoy. Perhaps rockband/guitar hero if the DS versions are any good?

    So please do enlighten me on what good having a DS can provide (besides hacking...)

  7. Yes I know its not likely you could get away with it. Ok... here's a more solid example of what I mean:

    I put netcat in an iso file to keep on my hard drive. Real-time scans don't do anything to it. Even if it does detect it during a manual/automatic scan, it can't remove it because its a disc image... unless it actually just considered the whole .iso a bad file.

  8. Yeah, you should start seeing a lot more drivers updated through WU with W7. Heck, you can even update some programs now through WU... or at least update them through the typical update dialog users are used to. Makes it a lot simpler than having a user memorize for each program where to go to get updates.

  9. Here's another idea. See if you can fool it by having it in a zip or cab file and than just copying out the programs when you need them. You might be able to run them from zip/cab if you're lucky, but don't be suprised if it doesn't.

  10. I havent had it crap out on me, but I guess thats because I did all my partitioning in Vista prior to installing W7. If you think its gonna crash on you than stick to diskpart, but if you want to use diskpart there's also no need to burn a seperate disc in order to use it. If you go to "Repair my computer" and get a command prompt from the recovery options menu, you can also use it from your Windows 7 DVD.
