    Sound card with digital (optical or coax) out

    Burning CD's with filenames greater than 64 characters long?

    names longer than that violate some ISO standard, which is why it won't let you do it, chances are if you try that the cd won't be playable in all cd-roms

    "Desperately" seeking comments: ViewSonic P225F

    Paul- Sorry about that :b The mitsubishi can be found for about $750 shipped I believe, and if you're finding prices that high for the viewsonic, you're lookin' in the wrong places. Check www.pricegrabber.com and www.pricewatch.com

    LPT Switch

    sure they are, head to your local compUSA or MicroCenter and ask for a parallel port switch, so far as i know a parallel switch is a larallel switch, unless you wanna get fancy and get a digital one (soft switch instead of a big knob)

    WinDVD 4 and Audigy Soundcard

    what operating system are you running? I seem to remember creative having trouble to get their drivers to make their Live!-series sound cards ti generate a digital signal under windows 2000, I'm not sure if they ever cleared that up or not

    Downloading pictures from a Macromedia presentation

    you may be able to extract them with one of macromedia's flash development tools, but i think once they're put in there you can't take them out separately, macromedia offers free temp licenses to allow people to check out their products i think, download Flash and see what it'll let you do

    first, flat-screen are much better than shadow-mask, as the image on a flat-screen/true-flat/any number of brand names/etc. has a constant or near constant dot-pitch (spacing between the pixels, smaller is better) so eye-fatigue occurs more slowly, aside from the fact that the image is a whole...

    Computer hangs after 10 minutes

    Mike- simply playing the devil's advocate here, it's possible that since your other PSU was bad it may have damaged some of your other hardware on it's way out, it'd be a good idea to try and mix and match your hardware with hardware you know to be working to try and isolate the problem

    Looking to upgrade-question for those who might know...

    yeah, here's another vote for amd's they run hotter, but you get a much better bang for the buck (despite the clock speed difference, amd cpu's do more with each clock cycle than p4's, therein lies their advantage) for an amd mobo, check out the aopen ak77-333, rock-solid and only $110...

    Overclocking Question

    sheesh, temps that low with a 33% oc? damned impressive, if only intel's could actually back up their numbers with an appropriate performance level ;) (yeah, i'm an amd fan :D) that temperature is just fine btw, don't get worried until it gets into the 50's
