    windows 7 pricing.

    Definitely worth considering legally upgrading to 7 at those prices.

    Keyboard LED stays on after shutdown

    I think it's a feature, not a bug. I think no matter what you have everything set to in the BIOS, it will still give power to the keyboard when the computer is off for the 'Power On by..." features. In my experience, most recent computers (P3 and up) do this.

    Youtube & High Quality Videos

    So basically, if I don't follow all of that criteria, it will get uploaded as a low quality video? BTW, here's one I uploaded: http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=t7YTkXls7w0 The converted fiel I upload is crystal clear at 640x480, but it's mono, would that effect the outcome? When I add the fmt=18...

    Youtube & High Quality Videos

    I recently bought a new digital camera (Camera A590 IS on special for $130 CDN at FS, couldn't refuse). The video quality on this thing is great. Perhaps not the best, but kicks the shit out of my old camera. Now, I'm also a bit of a Transit Enthusiast (Call me weird, won't be the first time...

    Computer Not Powering On - Not Power Supply

    Eh, I think I figured it out. I took the CPU out, and it seems to get a bigger jolt of power, so I'm thinking that the PSU seems to have lost capability to deliver anything beyond standby power. Not sure why the other one isn't working though. Mind you, it is an older 250W, but it has the...

    Computer Not Powering On - Not Power Supply

    It's not shorting out - I'm running it on cardboard and am using a screwdriver to short it, will check the jumper. Edit: Ok, flipping the jumper makes it not even give it that little stint of power.

    Computer Not Powering On - Not Power Supply

    So, I recently got a new (used) motherboard to replace my dying Chaintech. Now, I'm trying to get an Asus P4S333 working, and it won't power on. All it will do when I hit the switch is slightly move the fans, and nothing else. I'm running with nothing but the CPU, and the P4 connector is...

    Completely locking down XFCE 4.4

    I've tried your second solution, setting the ownership on the XML files that control the desktop to the admin account (not root), and doing a chmod 755... crap.. should that be 744? Anyway, XFCE seems to change the ownership to the student account when you make changes, making changing...

    Completely locking down XFCE 4.4

    So, basically what I'm trying to do is create a Linux image that has just a connection to the terminal server, and an icon to shut down the computer. Nothing more, nothing less. Because a lot of these systems are older (PII-350 is the lowest, with one oddball Celeron 366), I've chosen to use...

    Linux: Computer Receiving IP; No Internet Access

    So, you mean to the DNS servers?

    Linux: Computer Receiving IP; No Internet Access

    Well, I can't really set up static IPs, if that's what you're saying, because I don't have access to the DHCP server, and obviously, I don't want IP conflicts.

    Linux: Computer Receiving IP; No Internet Access

    So, here's the story: I set up a computer with a dual-NIC configuration to share the internet connection among other computers. What I had done, was set up the internet connection on the new card, and have the onboard NIC as the output. BTW, what I had done was set the static IP to...

    XFCE Questions

    Now, I have Arch Linux set up so that it automatically logs in as 'user' and starts XFCE. However, I set up a respawn in /etc/inittab to load startxfce4. The problem is, is that when it respawns after logging out, it loads it as root. What is the proper way to respawn XFCE as user? Thanks.
