    Sorry about that... Yes, as of right now uniprocessor. I've been reading up on SMP clients. Would 1 SMP client work better then 2 instances of the standard? If I were to run SMP, would I turn on hyperthreading to create 4 logical processors? Any recommendations? If you had the ability to set...

    What is the best software to use for web design?

    Don't use frontpage, if anything use dreamweaver. If you happen to have access to a mac, try iWeb. That is THE easiest way to setup a site IMO, however, it is limited to what you can do with it.

    there used to be programs where you could logoff, spam, send every warning/error message to someone and seriously just mess with them. I'm almost positive they no longer exsist because AOL got smart and patched it so you couldn't do it anymore. Regardless, just block the person or get a new...
