  1. It took me 2 seconds to google this up. http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?unrar
  2. Hi guys, I recently saw this wallpaper from one of Rean's desktops. He hasn't responded to my requests though so I was wondering if someone can point out where this wallpaper is from. Thanks. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/49222603/
  3. Well, I don't do OS X emulation anymore because I've lost general interest, but I can tell you what my first attempt involved. I used a uxtheme patcher and used Three-Drive's OS X Panther theme. Then, I moved the taskbar to the top (to emulate the finder menu), then I right-clicked on the taskbar->"Toolbars"->"New Toolbar...", made a new toolbar to a folder containing all my shortcuts, then dragged that down to the bottom of the screen - and that was my dock. lol
  4. Some fonts are easier to modify than others, some fonts just give you a tough time. Sometimes, I use two separate fonts, one for black and one for white (you can specify fonts easily with Styler so you can use both simultaneously). The font to be displayed in white typically requires little/no bolding whatsoever. Just switch on grayscale for that particularly font and forget bolding. Try that and see if it works.
  5. The keys to modifying the default shell font from Tahoma are: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrent VersionFontSubstitutes • MS Shell Dlg • MS Shell Dlg 2
  6. Actually, you can still receive a product key and download RC1 here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/ RC2 has already been released to select beta testers and will be the final release candidate before Vista ships its RTM version, which is essentially the retail version, but given to manufacturers at an earlier date.
  7. I'm pretty excited about Vista too. I was recently running the release candidate and it's quite impressive, with hardware-accelerated GUI, transparency effects, etc. And it runs smoothly on my 4-year old computer too with zero lag. The new Windows Explorer is much more similar to OSX's safari and I'd love to learn more about its internal themes engine. Here's some thought though: Right now, Windows XP's GUI engine is severely limited and WindowBlinds brings quite a few improvements over msstyles. However, what benefits would WindowsBlinds bring over Vista's own new styling engine? I'm i
  8. Wow, I thought they'd abandoned OB 2.0 totally because I heard about it like 3 years ago hehe... I wonder if this thing is Unicode compatible now.
  9. I think it's a combination of two problems: 1. Import the attached registry keys and restart. I think your registry is missing a few key entries. 2. Go to the "Regional and Language Options" panel, click on "Advanced" tab, and under "Language for non-Unicode programs", change to "Japanese". I hope that helps. jpn.reg.zip
  10. Can you read Japanese filenames alright in Windows Explorer? Please attach a registry dump of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionFontLinkSystemLink in this post and I'll look into it.
  11. I'd do what Slewed said. Change the font to Tahoma and see if it helps. If that works, that means that the current font you're using does not include a Japanese character set. In that case, you can either use a font that does include Japanese characters, or use a fontlinking method in the registry to include Japanese font display in Western-only fonts (such as Tahoma). The font linking takes place here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionFontLinkSystemLink You can follow the example of Tahoma and make font links to other fonts as well (such as Lucida Grande, Hande
  12. Well, all programs including the OS is loaded off of whatever media it's stored and executed in RAM . I think what your friend means is that he/she is running Windows XP inside a window under Linux (similar to running another application). That can be done through VMWare (commercial) or a few other free alternatives (which I heard, aren't nearly as functional as VMWare for that purpose). As one of the posters above mentioned, you can also run an "emulation layer" such as Cedega and/or WINE to try and run a Windows program as if it were native to Linux.
  13. No, I use Windows exclusively since 3.1 to XP and have never caught a virus either. I had one case of adware which I removed successfully with a little bit of creative thinking but that's about it. I think it's just the bad reputation coming from malware made specifically for Windows machines.
  14. I'd like to add Akihabara News for general news/short articles on the latest gadgets as well. Looking at all those items can give you a lot of ideas.
  15. That's not a bad conversion at all. One thing I know for sure...you'll have no difficulties with nice font renderings hehe. Somehow though, I've always avoided trying to mod Ubuntu to look like a Mac. I like the Tango icon suite and the Human theme a lot.
