    iOS7 seems to have messed up how mobile Wordpress sites are viewed

    Anyone else seeing this? Since upgrading my iPhone 5 to iOS7, my Wordpress sites don't fit in the full screen. They seem to be at about 150% intended size. You have to scroll right to view all of the content. This happens on both Chrome and Safari, and with several different mobile plugins so...

    Strange Win7 permissions problem

    I did use Auslogics Registry Cleaner - but that was after I had these issues. I ended up having to manually remove iTunes and then used the Reg Cleaner afterwords.

    iPhone 5C 16GB to cost $550 off-contract...isn't that a little much?

    The "upgrade" price is obviously selling the hardware at a loss. Being able to get a new iPhone for $199 is a very reasonable price, and buying it new (not on upgrade) for $550 seems to be right for me. That's ballpark for what it has been for a long time. I haven't paid a cent to upgrade my...

    Strange Win7 permissions problem

    Thanks for the reply. It is strange that the same thing happened on 2 of my computers (1 desktop and the other my home server) so I'm guessing it has something to do with software or a combination of software I installed. It was first noticed on my server when I couldn't install/upgrade...

    Strange Win7 permissions problem

    Win7 Home Premium, Core i7, 6GB ram, 64bit I'm stumped... something has happened on 2 systems that prevents my admin user account from being able to install updates. First I noticed that while installing new software that there were permissions problems while trying to write to the start...

    Core 2 Duo T9400 no power up Dell Vostro 1500

    That is odd that this one would be 1066MHz while the others at that time period were 800MHz. I never thought that would be an issue; I guess it isn't the same as how desktop mobos handle it. Also interesting how the T9400s are so much cheaper than the T9300s and T9500s on eBay right now. I got...

    Core 2 Duo T9400 no power up Dell Vostro 1500

    Yes it works fine with the T5270. In fact, I am posting from it right now in Linux Mint. I read one post on a blog that said it may be because of incompatibility with the chipset... apparently the T9300 and T9500s will work... meh.

    Core 2 Duo T9400 no power up Dell Vostro 1500

    I'm upgrading the processor on a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop and can't get it to power on. Original processor was a Core 2 Duo T5270 (1.4 GHz) I purchased and installed a Core 2 Duo T9400 SLB46 2.53GHz 1066MHz and it won't boot. I've tried it with one stick of RAM, battery/no battery...

    Polishing G5 tower

    Wondering if anyone has had any luck polishing a G5 tower. Mine is all scratched up and I was hoping some rubbing compound and elbow grease would do the trick. Thanks.

    Disk clone utility recommendation?

    I too use Clonezilla. In fact, I just cloned a 60GB SSD to a 1TB HDD and it worked fine. Just remember to remove the original source drive when you boot... I had an ID collision or something like that and Win7 didn't like it.

    Help diagnosing laptop problem

    It isn't a wire to the HD, I booted a live CD with no HD present and it did the same thing. I also removed the internal wifi card and taped off the antenna wires. This wasn't my laptop... it was given to me so I don't know the history of it being dropped or anything like that. Oh well...

    do you set cleartype on?

    I prefer it and even enable it on CRTs as well. My laptop, wife's laptop, 20" work monitor and 20" widescreen for my workstation at home (all at native res) all have it turned on. Text looks much better IMO with it on.

    As mentioned above, this is the vbulletin default template. Their template must have gotten hosed or turned off somehow. I'm sure it will be back to the original [H] black and red soon.

    Original Raptor vs Seagate Barracuda 7200.10

    Interesting... so I've been trying to determine if I should go with a gigabit file server for backup vs a USB or firewire solution. Since any HD I have won't surpass 80MB/s, which is 480 megabits, it seems like they all are bottlenecked by the HD. A gigabit solution would be the cheapest for...

    Original Raptor vs Seagate Barracuda 7200.10

    Ok thanks guys. Thanks for the info umbolo... So what does SATA II give you over SATA I? It is just a theorhetical speed increase that can't be realized because of hardware limitations? What can take advantage of SATA II? Anyway, this is good too because my Video editing machine already...

    Flash or HTML Based MP3 Player?

    Have you looked at Slimserver? It is built for the SlimDevices products but works fine (and is free) for any PC through your browser. http://www.slimdevices.com/su_downloads.html It can use iTunes as your database or utilize its own database. I've used it for over 3 years.

    Computer shuts off after 5 seconds of powering on... help!

    I'd open it up and make sure everything is seated properly and plugged in correctly. Maybe the CPU fan isn't spinning (its looking for feedback I think). Check the fans in the PSU also. Is there a lot of dust in there? Otherwise, I agree that it could be a PSU problem.

    IPOD will not format

    Have you already installed iTunes? Did you run the latest Apple updater? I forget the key combination, but google for "ipod reset" or "ipod hard reset" and you'll find out how to reset the system. I think it might be hold the play/pause and menu buttons at the same time for a few seconds.

    Original Raptor vs Seagate Barracuda 7200.10

    I own both drives and have a mobo that supports SATA 3.0 GB/s. Should I make my main drive the 35GB Raptor (SATA I, 10krpm, 8mb cache) or the Barracuda (SATA 3.0 GB/s, 7200rpm, 16mb cache)? I have a video editing machine that only supports SATA 1.5 GB/s so the Raptor could be used for that...

    Why are there no good keyboards anymore?

    I'm a fan of the Saitek keyboards. I have the Eclipse II. It is marketed as a gaming keyboard... in which it works well... but it is also nice to type with. It has extra weight so it doesn't slide around too easy and there aren't a ton of useless extra buttons. I previously had 2 Logitech...

    Strange wireless problem... help please

    This is very odd... I have an 802.11g router that I've had for about 3 years and it has worked great. My 3-year old Compaq laptop has an internal Broadcom card. It worked fine on the network until just a few weeks ago. Now, I can't connect to my own wireless network... most of the time, I...

    I have the source code... now what?

    Hmmm, I see what you're saying. Unfortunate... It sounds like even if we create a distro out of this, it still probably won't have the software to actually do what the thing is designed to do. Maybe my next step is to get registered as a dealer. :D

    Best resolution for CoD2 and 2005FPW

    Yeah I heard the Nvidia control panel works great with the ATI Radeon 9800. We know 1280x800 is the right res... but that is not an option. Anyway, I'm playing at 1280x768 16:10 and it looks good. BTW, if you have an "old" system like mine and need a performance boost, go to the video...

    Yoper ever going to come back?

    Yoper is still down. Anyone know what the deal is? I've used it before and was looking for the latest distro for a new install. BTW, I see this thread was started in August - I know I've been to yoper.com since then, but it is down now (and for the last 3 days at least).
