    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

    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

    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, 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.

    More JS Issues

    Ok, so I'm trying to follow this guide: The problem I'm having is that it only populates the listbox with the first letter of the array name. If I alert the variable used to do an eval(Monitor), it will alert me with Monitor, and the lsitbox...

    Using Javascript to pass data between HTML Forms

    Cannot open Database

    So, here's the story: Last night, after doing an apt-get dist-upgrade (Ubuntu 6.10 > 7.10), the update didn't take, which forced me to copy everything over to another machine and redo it. Now, I can access the database from the MySQL shell alright, but any of the PHP scripts cannot access it...

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10s plagued?

    Ok, so I got a 250GB Seagate HD about a month back (IDE model), and it started making this noise (Best I can describe it is like an owl) followed by a click. I got the drive replaced yesterday, same model, and it has started doing the same thing. Thoughts?

    PDA Sync Problems

    I'm having problems syncing my HP H2210. When I try to set up a standard partnership, it'll only stay connected for a couple of minutes. Then, it will automatically disconnect itself and I'll have to redock the PDA in order to get it to connect again. However, with a guest partnership, there...

    Merging Album Art With MP3

    What software do I need to merge album art with the MP3 itself? I've noticed that a few of my MP3s appear to have the album art embedded in themselves. I was just wondering how to do this? It's a small thing, but I think this: Looks a bit better than this

    FS: Optical Mice

    New Card in Old Dell, some problems

    My friend bought a Radeon 9000 PCI and put it into his Dell GX110 (P3 800, but will soon be a PIII 1.13). The problem is, is that the POST doesn't show up, and the card isn't being detected in Windows, but was before. He's tried both the outputs on the card, and the onboard video is set to auto...

    Dumb Layouts

    What are some really awkward layouts you've seen on hardware? My favourite are the USB headers on my motherboard. Especially fun with those fucking individual connectors. My USB headers are located between the AGP slot and the PCI slot. Edit: Never realised how shiny my TV Card is :D...

    HD or PSU?

    Hey, I've been having problems lately with my HD randomly turning off and immediately turning back on. It doesn't have a specific moment when it happens, it'll do it 5 or 6 times and then stop. However, nothing else is affected. I am also running on an el-cheapo PS, as well.

    Do You Hate Working on Other Peoples' Comps?

    10MBPS NIC Slowing things down?

    In my router, we used to get well over 300kbps on it. Now I'm lucky to get 120. I think it's ever since I put in that DE220 card that it's been slowing down. Is it the NIC? Because I don't think I have any more PCI NIC cards laying around.

    Painting Side Panels
