  1. Congrats :). BTW, there's a new version of the Vista transformation pack out if you're interested. It has a bunch of improvements, but off the top of my head I know it gives you the full circular "start orb" (something that bugged me about the theme when I used it before I got vista). Anyways, my desk:
  2. PLEASE tell me you're at least using IE7! Otherwise needless to say you're screwing yourself over with malware for no good reason. Anyway, my top ten would look something like this: 1. Firefox 2. Thunderbird 3. Steam 4. Windows Live Messenger 8.5 beta 5. iTunes 6. Media Player Classic+Combined Community Codec pack (it's like VLC, except it can competently play back .mkv x264 movies) 7. Photoshop CS3 8. 3dsmax 8 9. avast! antivirus 10. Ad-Aware Honourable mentions: -Media Center -Halo 2 Vista -Shadowrun (I have Vista, I'm an achievement whore, and they were bo
  3. This is the one that I am using right now, but 95% of my games (what I mostly do on this rig) are installed on my xp drive because they run like shit on vista.
  4. Gears of War, Splinter Cell: Double Agent- Xbox 360. Doom- Xbox Live Arcade Halo 2- Xbox Splinter Cell: Double Agent- PC I'm getting Dark Messiah for PC soon.
  5. Sorry man, my mistake. You have the DSC-W1 as you said, I have the DSC-H1. 12x optical, and for a pretty good price. I'm pretty sure all other specs are the same. They both take 640x480 video, and with a TV out on a standard definition TV it looks alright. Digital SLR? I was happy that this camera was sub-$400CAN. Your camera would cost an arm and a leg. :? But you're pro so there's no worries. :)
  6. I can't stop laughing every time I see that. It's probably cause they're french :D "Zee eh am de has EXPLODE!"
  7. Dude, I have the same camera with 5.1 megapixels, but with 12x optical zoom. That MPEG video recording is pretty sweet, but it needs to be really bright out.
  8. Ok, I did a lot of searching, and I found the problem (the uTorrent FAQ had my problem listed, but none of their solutions helped). The problem was that my file was "being accessed by another program", so I downloaded this program called Unlocker (http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/), and if you're getting this error message anywhere, you just right click on the file, go to "unlock" and a list will come up, so select "unlock all", and my uTorrent magically works. I have no idea what it actually did, but it's the only solution that worked.
  9. Whenever I use µTorrent for downloading, the download will be going fine for a couple minutes, and then will just stop. If I start it again it will go for a bit, and then do the same thing. I've never had a problem with randomly quitting downloads in the official BitTorrent application, but I really like µTorrent because my downloads are faster and I can use it to organize my things and do more than one at a time: It makes my life easier. Does anyone know what could be causing µTorrent to randomly abort downloads? Again, I've never had the problem with other clients.

  11. Where did you get your computer from? PC World was it? No, I didn't. Why do you ask?
  12. I'm sorry, but Nero 7 is the biggest waste of mone... sorry, "bandwidth" I've ever seen. It's annoying as hell to use, it has it's own media player that assimilated all my movie files from other players, and it's got a bunch of junk glued to it. To demonstrate this program's suckitude, I did a seach for "nero" on my hard drive after I uninstalled the program: WTF. When I say "uninstall", I kinda want it OFF my computer. Sorry again, but I'm just pissed at this thing. I'm sticking with Alcohol from now on.
  13. In any case, Microsoft's scheme probably worked- I've found myself using messenger alot more regularly than I did before this download.
