The only thing I am a little disappointed in is this "3-5 Day Delivery". Smile

It's not so bad being taken care of now! Obviously, I'm a pretty lucky guy.

Anyway, now that I got the brag out, I'll say it's nice to see you guys again...been a bit of a while.

Hey, Suzi and all, how's things?

Hey, very good to hear from you Mikey. Very Happy You and NetWidow are quite the pair! That is a mighty fine gift you got with 12 Gigs RAM and 3 TB hard drive space. Shocked

As you can see things are pretty quiet here. Not much going on except HijackThis logs and the occaisional spammers to ban.

Yep, NW's way too cool to be with an old degenerate like me.

Yea, them drives kinda surprised me too but she knows how much work I do with DV. About 15+ yrs ago, I bought a box that only had two 1g drives in it. Here recently I've been using 160g's and still having to rely on externals too for many projects. So I'm just tickled pink to check them out and I'm full to the brim with anticipation...like Xmas in April. Smile

"As you can see things are pretty quiet here." It looks like a lot of pri/sec forums are seeing a slow down. I wonder if that is good or bad for the community as a whole and what the ramifications are.

It seems to me that folks are tired of trying to keep up with all the crap that threatens users today. Perhaps also, it's a case of whatever can be said has been said already(many times).

At any rate, users are still very lucky to have places like this to come to for free help cleaning up and hopefully learning how to stay that way. You guys perform a very vital service here, regardless of average user mentality. Smile

Sorry, the meds tend to make me ramble. Smile

Anyway, thx for the welcome back. Hopefully, my new bionics(spinal chord stimulator) and new meds(Lyrica - wonderfull life changing drug) will allow me to function in more continuous periods now. Well, thx again.

Very good to see you back Mikey!

The place is very quiet these days - I think people are around but just not posting much: like you say what can be said has been said.

A number of people I know have become experts at reinstalling Windows when (not if) they get malware on their systems. That seems to be becoming the default approach to the problem around here, rather than learning good protection/cleanup methods. Another symptom of our throwaway society...?

Best wishes for your health and have fun with the lovely new system!

Hey, good to see you too.

Unfortunately, reinstalling doesn't work all the time either. And even with everything backed up, I wouldn't care to go that way myself because it takes a long wasted time to reset everything back up like I like it...if I could even do that at all.

I've got one 12-13 yr old P3 box running W2Kp that hasn't been down for anything more than a timely update for more than ten yrs now. If I ever had to take it down, I'd never be able to use it the same again.

Of course, the chances of me letting anything on board that I didn't want are highly unlikely,,,even when studying viral components. It hasn't happened since my first run in with spyware back in late 97. But even with that odd chance, if something did get on board, I know right where I can get help removing it cleanly. Smile

Rambling again.

Well mikey's new computer finally came in today. I'm sure he'll be talking all about it but right now he's getting it setup and figuring everything out. It's bigger than I thought it would be. Bigger than his old one. Should keep him happy for a while.

There's few things that are more fun than setting up and "playing" with a load of shiny new tech.

I'm getting "broody" just hearing about it.

You spoil him NW, but he deserves it. Wink Very Happy

Awesome, sounds like it will keep him busy for a while. I'll bet he is having great fun getting it all set up to his liking. Smile

OH YES I couldn't say it better.

Getting it networked was a breeze with W7U. In fact, there was only one thing that presented itself tedious and that was getting the multiple monitors all cfged with this box as host. However, now that it is done, I really like this graphics card. http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-radeon-hd-5000/hd-5870/Pages/ati-radeon-hd-5870-overview.aspx I just wish it didn't require the use of two slots.

Yep. just like Xmas comes twice this year. Smile

Like I said, she has great taste. Thx NW, I guess I'll stick around for another 20. Smile

I've always wanted to have multi-screen capability, but unfortunately I don't have space for that kind of set up at the moment.

I'm genuinely envious.

Your new graphics card looks very capable, hope you get to test it to its limits.
