  1. the drives cant just be swapped. Drivers are linked to the Motherboards via keys, you need to extract the key from the original drive, then spoof it onto the new drive of the same type. (Not the easiest of tasks if you cant flash the drive). How did you fail to flash the drive? If you just couldnt do it, then chances are you probably didnt connect the cables back in correctly. If you tryed to flash and fail, then your xbox is now and expensive media centre. All and all, more information is needed.
  2. Yep, looks right to me.
  3. Yea but Americans dont telivise Indian Bashings, just cant read the difference between Austria, and Australia.
  4. We WarRide on the back of Kangaroo's, ofcourse theres gonna be alot of hackers down under.
  5. i do agree with h3%5kr3w, i dont see a point in encrypting personal computers, unless your into lil kiddies, whats there to hide?
  6. What is FTP? "File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to exchange and manipulate files over a TCP/IP based network, such as the Internet. FTP is built on a client-server architecture and utilizes separate control and data connections between the client and server applications. Client applications were originally interactive command-line tools with a standardized command syntax, but graphical user interfaces have been developed for all desktop operating systems in use today. FTP is also often used as an application component to automatically transfer files for program internal functions. FTP can be used with user-based password authentication or with anonymous user access. The Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is a similar, but simplified, not interoperable, and unauthenticated version of FTP." Issues with Security? "The original FTP specification is an inherently unsecure method of transferring files because there is no method specified for transferring data in an encrypted fashion. This means that under most network configurations, user names, passwords, FTP commands and transferred files can be captured by anyone on the same network using a packet sniffer. This is a problem common to many Internet protocol specifications written prior to the creation of SSL, such as HTTP, SMTP and Telnet. The common solution to this problem is to use either SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol), or FTPS (FTP over SSL), which adds SSL or TLS encryption to FTP as specified in RFC 4217" All infomation from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Transfer_Protocol (2nd link on google). Otherwise if you want to set up a client / server on a windows box, then i suggest FileZilla, has always worked well for me.
  7. the switch is slowing you down. Did you buy it new? or given to you second hand?
  8. are you using Static IP address' or allowing a DHCP to allocate them? if so, make sure that the DHCP in the switch is turned off.
  9. the question is why?... buy a SSD 64gb drive, encrypt it, and use it to store your OS and day-to-day apps. put your games on the 1TB. close VM's when not needed. I really dont see a point in pushing the CPU that hard, special when its only a 860. And the answer to your question is simply yes. Encrypting the drive will hinder game preformance. And applications that access lots of files to run will also be slowed, at first maybe not to much, but when you start accessing more files on the drive it will become a bother.
  10. how have you configured the switch to the router?
  11. "These ones are something different. DELL notebooks save their BIOS password in an EEPROM-chip so it isn't deleted when you short-circuit the BIOS battery or something like that. Also there's no jumper/DIP-switch which disables the password." Your going to need the Universal Password reset, if your Service ID for the laptop is -D35B, such as 8WG030J-D35B, then use a tool called Latitude_MasterPW.exe. Enter your service ID and it will give you your master password.
  12. Information from there Acceptable Use Policy: "# In a manner which interferes with other customers' use and enjoyment of the services provided by SureWest. " "Customer must ensure that its activity and that of its users do not improperly restrict, inhibit or degrade any other SureWest customer's use of Services. Users must also ensure their usage does not burden (in the sole judgment of SureWest) the SureWest network, such as by sending unusually large transmissions or large numbers of transmissions, by repeated or coordinated transmissions to the same or a small number of addresses, or by initiating or maintaining consistent transmissions that impact others. The network is robust but not unlimited. " "... SureWest explicitly retains full discretion to take whatever action it deems appropriate with respect to any Customer to protect the operation of its network and to meet its Internet Service obligations to its other Customers." from http://www.surewest.com/legal/acceptable_use_policy.php If your downloading all day everyday they will disable your account. Fair Play. Every provider in australia have pretty much the same Fair Play police, and im pretty sure it would be similar in the states. Best is simply to limit your downloads to what you need.
  13. make sure your ISP doesnt have Fair Play in its Terms and Agreements. Also were the illegal download warning before you downloaded from microsoft?

  15. Your going to need to look into the cURL for PHP (http://php.net/manual/en/book.curl.php) You will need to read about how to interface with the Twitter API (http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Libraries#PHP) And then your going to need to look into JavaScript, if you want it to look like twistori.com. The basics are, download Status, then filter / display. Best way to do this is with Ajax, so that your page loading wont lag. best thing about Twitter is all the functions you need are already writen for you. http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/file/20197.html - Contains all the functions you will need to access twitter.
  16. ah haha, probably should have read through the file a little more. digip: the issue is, the array returned, is an array of arrays :) $fileselection = scan_directory_recursively('./'); $count = count($fileselection); for ($i = 0; $i &lt; $count; $i++) { $extractedArray = $fileselection[$i]; echo $extractedArray['name'] . "&lt;br /&gt;"; } will return and print all files found in the given directory. by changing the value in the $extractedArray, we can return 'path', 'name', 'extension' and 'size'. Deathdefyer2002: all the above posts have been talking about ways to print this out using the echo command...
  17. He says he wants to use the speeds of USB. Though a free option, if the two computers are connect via network, you could connect the USB to one of them, and easly write a script to copy the HDD, WOL the other computer, wait for computer to start, pass the backup via LAN to the other PC.
  18. its really bad practice to use System commands in PHP, but it is an option, just know, that it goes against allowing your code to be ran on all PHP supportive platforms. If your looking to travers throw the array, then you will want something like this: $fileselection = scan_directory_recursively('./'); for (i = 0; i &lt; count($fileselection); i++){ echo "$fileselection[i]&lt;br /&gt;"; }
  19. second. Myspace, is secure, in the past you could view private profiles via google cache (i think its fixed now though). As for pictures, nope. Its nothing to do with the links or any client side interface. The idea behind it is simple, you request to the server to view pic x, server checks if your allowed, server doesnt send you pic x. The only way to get around it is to be in the allow list, either by having your access increased, or stealing someones elses account who does have access. (or steal the owner account). So all up, its not gonna happen, unless your either a very skillful hacker, or you just add them. If you know them then they will accept you. Otherwise they dont know you, or dont want you. Hence they whole point of privacy settings.
  20. a multimeter isnt going to help all that much in a computer, unless your playing with a PSU. Cheaper multimeters will have shit accuracy later on in its life (say after a few months). Its best to buy a more expensive one, such as the ones put out by fluke, but if your not going to be using it alot then pick up a cheap one to play with.
  21. Its more of a Ponzi scheme, with the first people who run through the sites agreement, they get there laptops, increasing the word of mouth, but as the site grows, the site claims that they can no longer hold up with the current demaned for the laptops, therefore they say they place your laptop on backorder, then never hand it out.
  22. haha! yes... thats actualy possibly, as seen with many rave hacks, you can wire an LED into the sound port and get a flashing light with the base of the music, if you were to create a solid sound on repeat, buy a male 3mm phone jack, and just measure the voltage, if its substansual (0.25v will do). Take the 5v line from the USB port and wire it to the Base line of a Transistor. Wire the Audio positive lead into the Emitter of the Transistor, then lastly wire the positive (depending on which way you want the fan to spin) lead from the fan into the Collector line of the Transistor. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm...Transistor2.svg

    WIFI Kit

    Haha so scary, so australian. For me PCI Adaptors, Antennas, and Routers all from MSY, or MSY price matched at other dealers.
  24. Thats will disable the hub from access to windows, not kill the 5volt line, well doesnt on my system anyway, portable HDD still has power, just no data transfer to windows Vista
