  1. Cricket, cricket. Nice to see familiar names. Good times, the days before Facebook and smartphones. Pretty sure I have one or two of you on there, especially if you were over at OCN as well. And, similarly, re-reading my teenage-self's posts make me want to gouge my eyes out. I stumble upon it whenever I accidentally click it in my "Forums" bookmark folder, lol. First time though without the famous theme. When did that happen?
  2. LOL, really? Thought this *was* the new skin. Damn... Old Times >_>
  3. Epic skin, holy hell. Haven't been here in a few months, and I come back to see my mind blown away, haha! I remember when the "new" skin was when Leopard was still being rumoured around, and we went from Aqua to Leopard. Damn, good days. EDIT: Lost my avatar D:
  4. You celebreate Christmas? (couldn't resist... <3) Oh, and btw, Rangers are going to suck this season. So don't rub it in, kay?
  5. O hai, look who's still alive. God help us? Source: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/913...er_Snow_Leopard
  6. "You last visited 2 months ago, June 2nd at 4:32AM" Time for a little welcome parade? *hopes the image resizer is still there from vB* Wallpaper explanation: My rig, obviously. E8400 @ 4.05GHz (1800MHz FSB, 1.24v), 4GB PC6400 @ 4-4-4-12 2.1v OCZ, GTS 250 @ 820MHz Core, stock shaders. That'll give you a little impression of the horsepower.
  7. Enter teh secks! Here's the set: Workstation Ides of May 2009 - a set on Flickr
  8. You wouldn't be a member of OCN, would you illidan? Those pics are so familiar. Edit: I found you .
  9. I also know that in the UK, a lot of words with "c" are replaced by "s". For example: Defence vs. Defense
  10. LOL On a more srsly note... two servers, two laptops, my main desktop rig, my grandfather's box, my uncle's box, and 9 spare oldish machines... 2+2+1+1+1+9 = 16 woo.
  11. Well, it's time to hijack this thread again, eh? Orion, my sig rig (overclock.net -- see signature) A wide-ish shot: Off to the left a little, showing my -DmG- server in that Antec: Off to the right a little, showing everything else: Look hard... harder... harder! It's my LAN server, that handles DHCP, DNS, HTTP, SQL, etc Now for the tower of... storaged junk. looking in from the door towards my rig's cart: enjoy the pr0ns!

  13. Hot damn this topic just won't go away will it? >_>. You run Anti-Virus (not Fisher-Price brand like Norton), you can connect to http://microsoft.com/, congratulations, you're not infected. If you are infected, apparently you took a wrong turn at 5th Avenue. Reinstall your Operating System (read: GTFO Vista), and be happy. Problems solved. And to be honest, probably nothing will happen. Just a April 1st prank. And they've already got us, because they got what they wanted when they were featured on the news, and where forums like this cause havok over it... and come 53 minutes from n
  14. You're buggin. apt is the best way to install a piece of software IMO. no files you have to save to your desktop and execute etc etc, just "sudo apt-get install thunderbird" for example. And that's it, it's installed. Ubuntu; like most/all Linux distros is different from Windows in a lot of ways; so be sure that you're commited to switching over cold turkey. As matonga said, you can just resize your Windows partition and install Ubuntu on the free space; giving you some playtime with Ubuntu before you make it your mainstream operating system; but it looks as though you've decided to stick wi
  15. Machines can have thousands (literally) of CNAMEs directed all to the same IP address.
  16. I use BIND9 myself on my network on my server. Basically, when my server goes down, then so does DNS (and DHCP). Makes it a bugger if the server goes down, because so does my whole network. I think it is possible to set your router to have some DNS entries; I myself have DD-WRT-enabled Linksys routers; where it is possible to do so. Having two DNS servers running on the same subnet might be a little tricky though; as I know that DHCP doesn't work with TCP/IP like that.
  17. XD Hahaha. I know. They work for a certain amount of time before I delete them. Organization, ya know? :. My workstation changes frequently. When they're taken down it's because they're inaccurate.
  18. Hah, my grandfather has that same eMachines.
