    Starting from Scratch

    I'm using an Emac running 10.3. Over the past year the computer has been getting progressively slower. I ran some system utility programs which suggested that all of the hardware was working properly so I decided to take on the pain in the behind process of backing up all of my files and...

    Error message when networking a Mac with a PC

    I'm having a problem using my network to transfer files between a Mac and a PC. I've managed to set up a folder on the desktop of the PC that shows up in the network menu of the Mac, and I have no problem transferring from the PC to the Mac. On the other hand when I try to transfer files from...

    Networking a Mac and a PC

    Now that I've got my Mac up and running if it's possible I would like to set up a network that would let me access the files on the PC with the Mac. I was sitting here dreading the thought of burning the 80gb worth of files that are on my old computer to CD Roms and figure there has to be an...

    I'm getting a Mac

    After spending a while debating whether the operating system on my new computer should be XP or Vista I've decided to go way out in left field and get a Mac mini.

    Thinking about forming a corporation

    I bought liens on a few pieces of property at a local tax sale. It will be about a year before the lien comes due and I can petition the court to have the properties transfered to my name but between now and then I was thinking that it would be a good idea for me to form a corporation of some...

    Starting from scratch

    My employer is about to auction off some surplus computer hardware. The catch is that that the hard drives will be wiped of any and all software. What would I have to buy to get one of these systems up and running? While pricing new copies of Windows XP they all seem to have a disclaimer stating...

    Disappointed with Fry's

    Yesterday I was in Fishers Indiana with some time to kill so I stopped by Fry's Electronics. The visit was disappointing. While there was lots of nice equipment in the store the presentation was as bad as I've ever seen. I've been thinking about upgrading the sound system in my truck so the...

    Beware, that new flat screen TV might be an oven door.

    Ignore the calendar, this is not an April's Fool. A rash of oven-door thefts may be linked to a recent case in which a woman bought what she thought was a flat-screen television, only to discover that the package held an old oven door, police said. :D...

    For a couple of weeks now every time I try to load Yahoo Games the CPU locks up on me and I have to manually hold in the power button to restart.

    I bought a domain name and while I'm supposed to use FTP to create the site I can't make heads or tails of it. Can anybody suggest a program that I can download or buy to simplify the process?

    Does anybody know why liquor isn't labeled with nutrition facts like everything else in the grocery store? I've been cutting calories and the only way I was able to find out how many calories were in a can of beer was online and even then I had to break out a calculator(49 calories in...

    A couple of weeks ago RayKk started the Miles of Boredom tour. He claimed that Prisoner of War (XBox) was so bad that he would ship it to anyone who was willing to post a review and keep the chain alive by paying to ship it to the next in line. The graphics are uninspiring, at best they would...

    Rooftop TV antenna hookup

    I just moved into my first house (happy happy joy joy) and it came with this attic TV antenna connected thru these four pronged circular jacks (::) that are in every room. At Radio Shack they didn't have anything that would connect directly to the jack so I got a $2 converter which has two...

    My computer, an HP Pavillion with an Athalon processor and 128mb of ram must be rebooted several times a day because the system resources get so clogged that it crashes.
