  1. Yes, thats what I mean. I know, I know, don't mean what you say but say what you mean .
  2. Totally! Ogg Vorbis is a great codec. Apart from .wav for audio cd burning, I use this for all my music. I think it sounds better than mp3 (lame mp3 is close), and the files are slightly smaller. I just relised that my audio collection (mp3) is stored at 128 Kbs VBR, and that my ogg versions were encoded at 96 Kbs VBR. I couldn't tell the difference. I also use VorbisExt to edit the tags. Gotta love it . (the site is currently down at the moment ).
  3. Well, apart from my brother using his iPod shuffle, I plan to stay away from Apple and iPod and iTunes, and use an iriver to play my .ogg files . Ogg plays straight out of the box on linux (most of them anyway).
  4. Yes, when I had posted this thread, I relized that lots of servers on the internet are linux based, and I am currently using Linux with firefox to browse the net and reply to topics in the forum like this one. And yeah, I might have to remove the signature picture, since I got a complaint.
  5. I'm lucky that I don't take medication, I'm also lucky that I don't live in the USA. But that is a stupid idea. I think it is just to gain money from blowing up the tablets the patient just got an hour ago, and having to buy more. Also, people can extract the rocket fuel and make their own bombs or rockets with it. I think it's stupid .
  6. Honestly, it is a bit offending, but I don't mind it .
  7. @blu Yes I was referring to you when I wrote that sentence . Now, I took this screenshot of my Win98 partition being defragged on the weekend: I don't think it was ever this fragmented! It's all blue again so no worries . If you are wondering why my partitions are smaller now, its because I installed Linux on my machine. Check the chat section for my thread on linux.
  8. I downloaded the Ubuntu 6.10 iso on wednesday and thursday. It is a live cd, so I can test it out without harming my system. First I tried burning it to my cd-rw, but that wasted an hour and a half because of verify errors. So, I just burned it to a DVD+RW, it took just five minutes to write and verify (CD-RW took 35 minutes just to burn), booted it, and it worked just fine. Earlier this afternoon, I managed to access the internet using the college network in Ubuntu. My network teacher said that a linux computer can't talk to a windows network, boy is he wrong. Firefox comes with it, so I had to use that to browse the internet. Had to put in the colleges proxy name and port, then tried to browse. It came up with a familiar 'Proxy firewall. Please enter username and password:', which I did. And it worked! I was browsing the net in no time. The only bad thing is the display drivers weren't accelerated, so when moving a window, it would take a half a second to redraw it. What a pain that was for scrolling down web pages. The good thing about ubuntu is that it has apps I know about and sometimes use, such as Firefox, audacity (not included in distro), openoffice.org, and the GIMP. So, I might use Linux for music and other little things, and use windows for my programming and gaming. Sounds like a good review to me. Oh, and I am also going to try Kubuntu as well, its downloading now. Isin't download resuming awesome? I used Free Download Manager to download. Start the download, when its time to download, stop the download, take machine home. Next day, Take my system back to college, start windows, start Free Download Manager, and click 'start download', and it picks up where it left off. The best feature ever.

    Alright, just saw it, yeah, it is a bit wierd.
  10. JasonFriday13


    Alright, I am reasonably convinced you didnt do it your self. Try clearing your cache or reinstalling firefox and see if that helps.
  11. Tried plugging the sound card into all of the other slots? The slot you are using could be dead.

    Oh, and since you know where it came from, I bet that you took the picture from that site, cropped and shrunk it, and saved it over the :cllapping: image in firefoxes cache (purposely spelled clapping wrong to prevent the smilie kicking in), so then it looks like a browser error. Ha, nice try, but your .
  13. @Shamus My 5 1/4 drive is a leftover from my first computer. It was a 80386 40 Mhz with maths co-processor. 8MB of RAM and 32 bit cpu . Ran windows 95 on it. Originally used it as boot security, so that it would not boot without the 5 1/4 boot disk. I was offered borland C++ 2.0 on seven 5 1/4 disks from high school, because I wanted to learn the language (and because they were giving it away). About three months later, I bought my current machine in pieces and put it together. I decided to add the 5 1/4 drive because I had a spare space and power connector for it. And thats the story. Now, about that harddrive, ARE YOU KIDDING!? A 500 GB drive that is nearly full and tried but failed to defrag since you got it? Get rid of some of those DVDs you have stored on it and burn them to DVDs. You are lucky though. I have a 38.2 GB drive, with 34 GB assigned to Win XP, and 3.5 GB assigned to Win 98 SE (for old game compatibility). The last 700 MB is free space incase I need to make an emergency partition (don't know what for yet). Your much better off than I am . [edit] And red is slow, VERY slow. Blue is VERY good (blue is also good for your disk) [/edit]
  14. What? Somthing wrong with my explanation? Whats going on?
  15. It's when all the pieces of the file are rearranged so that they are all in order one after the other. Fragging is when there is not enough room for the file, so it splits it up into fragments to store it. Hence disk speed is slower because the OS has to search for the other pieces of the file.
  16. I defrag every few weeks. I don't like my files in pieces.
  17. Haven't heard it yet but from the sounds of things its very creative.
  18. Yet another good use for a CMC MAG DVD! Maybe someone could make a list of uses for it. Like when you get a coaster when burning it, actually use it as a coaster, to put your cup of whatever on it. [edit]Fixed typo.[/edit]
  19. So dbminter, you are a mad scientist like your avatar suggests. Whats next, world domination?
  20. Yeah, I've noticed this as well, but never really thought about it. This will be good for my data backups (or authoring and burning a dvd - almost never do this though).

    Fall back?

    And I assume most of you put your clocks back? We in NZ put our clocks forward at this time of year (and backward in march).
  22. Hey ifc, I like your new avatar. The old one was pretty cool. I might have to change mine sometime. Don't know what to yet.
