    GNOME 3.14 Is Winning Back Linux Users

    I'm one of those people that actually liked Unity when it came out (and still use it), and didn't really mind Gnome 3. I also instantly liked Windows 8 when it came out and much prefer it to Windows 7. Judging from everyone else's reactions to these desktop environments, I feel like there's...

    Windows 8.1 Update Deadline Pushed Back

    Installed Win 8.1 update 1 just fine on 6 out of 7 machines. I have a Dell XPS 12 that would not successfully install update 1 no matter what fixes I attempted to try. Eventually reinstalled Windows 8 and went through the processes of upgrading to 8.1 and then installing update 1 and it...

    TV Subscriptions Fall for First Time as Viewers Cut the Cord

    I'm in my mid 30s, and I'm a "cord never". I attribute this mainly to growing up in a rural area though. I notice that most people in my age group still subscribe to pay TV services and have a need/expectation to watch the latest shows and favorite news channel. I don't see that type of TV...

    Ten Years Ago Today In Tech

    Yeah, I gave my old NF7S board with the 2500+ barton (axda) and 9800GT to a friend of mine a long time ago, he uses it to this day in his polebarn where he fixes cars that were in accidents. He uses the computer to pull up schematics and stuff, and it doubles as his music/mp3 player.:D If you...

    Windows 8 Will Be Available Oct. 26th

    I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to OS preferences. I really like Ubuntu on my home desktop. I think the Unity interface is a great improvement over the previous gnome interface. I don't like Mint nearly as much. I sometimes use the KDE DE for the fun of something different, but...

    Windows 8: A Design Disaster

    I think what MS should have done is just made a bar on the left hand side of the screen for all the application icons, and make it so users can rearrange the order or add/remove program icons from the bar on the left. At the top of the left bar, have a search function that users can use to find...

    Today Is World Backup Day!

    Funny. Have a raid mirror in my SBS 2008 server for the small business I work for. One of the drives fails last night. No big deal. Took bad one out, ordered a new one today. Well, this evening, the other drive fails. What luck. Ran out to the store and paid a lot of money for a...

    21 Break Ideas to Boost Your Productivity at Work

    Phil has more or less just become a running joke over on consumerist. I don't think I've ever seen him post a story that actually had anything to do with their mission statement of "The Consumerist empowers consumers by informing and entertaining them about the top consumer issues of the day...

    Why I am Dumping Firefox

    On my Windows computer at work, I use Firefox 4. I don't like Chrome at all on a Windows based system. I don't mind IE9, but I am used to the addons that I use for Firefox and don't see any need to switch. However, on my home computer running Ubuntu 10.10, I don't like Firefox 3.x at all...

    Mozilla Firefox Celebrates 6 Years

    I was a Mozilla user, and switched to Firefox in February or March of 2004 I think? I remember thinking that I'd rather stick with Mozilla, but it seemed like they were replacing it with Firefox, so I better just get used to it. I still use Firefox. I think it's pretty darn refined. I...

    E-mail issue regarding SBS 03 using pop3 connector, how to forward DNS?

    Thank you so much for your offer YeOldeStonecat. I think I *might* have things working properly now. Under the smallbusiness SMTP connector properties (yes, I now have this connector after running the wizard :) ), I selected the option to "use DNS to route to each address space on this...

    E-mail issue regarding SBS 03 using pop3 connector, how to forward DNS?

    E-mail issue regarding SBS 03 using pop3 connector, how to forward DNS?

    This server has been running for about a year now. Everything besides this issue works fine. marley1 - I think you are right on about the restarting idea. Now that I think about it, I may have had to do that once before to get one of the other wizards working when I was initially setting...

    E-mail issue regarding SBS 03 using pop3 connector, how to forward DNS?

    Great, for some reason the wizard isn't working. None of them are. I open them up, get the opening screen, click next, and nothing happens. I'm having nothing but luck and great times here.:(

    E-mail issue regarding SBS 03 using pop3 connector, how to forward DNS?

    Ok, I'll try to make sense of what you just said. I think maybe it got me closer to what I need to do. So on the server, I only had the pop3 connector, so I went into the "exchange system manager". Under the connectors folder, it showed the one pop3 connector. Under the "action" menu...

    E-mail issue regarding SBS 03 using pop3 connector, how to forward DNS?

    I am attempting to resolve an issue with e-mail. Right now, we use SBS 2003. We also have e-mail (and domain, and webhosting) through godaddy. I have the server set up with the pop3 connector tool or whatever to check for messages and deliver them to the appropriate user mailboxes. Now, I...

    Monitor fuse?

    I have a 17" Aopen lcd that "died" on me recently, and I ordered a 19" Acer lcd to replace it. I walked up to my computer one day and the 17" was not powered on (I had left it on) and it wouldn't turn on again. I figured I'd pull it apart just to have a look, and it all appears to be fine, but...

    About to buy a couple of laptops

    I know nothing about laptops, and briefly learned a thing or two by reading the faqs on this forum. I hate to be the stereotypical poster that posts "what should I get?" or whatever, I actually have one picked out. I was just wondering if I could swing it by a few other people and get some...
