Yep. Not trying to start a huge discussion. Is true all over the world in any situation where you are allowed to vote. BUT remember a spoilt vote increases the voter percentage. Nobody cares to state how many votes was spoilt - but only say "we got the majority vote of xx% of possible voters". So th...

Hi.. Read this - oh I think about 15 years ago - and all but forgot about it. Still worth wasting the time to download and read I reckon.

Yes! I like. Will make it so much easier when I lose the forums for whatever reason. Allways been a problem to know which were really read. Only one request (question) - sometimes I only get onto the forum like once a week. Now how about doing the same but give the option for 7 days as well? or some...

Maybe a really dump answer - but I had a similiar problem some time ago.. Did you make sure that the 10GB drive is set up as a slave?? Even if both is set as master - sometimes it will boot from the disk with an active boot partition and then totally ignore the other one. I had a similiar problem - ...

yep. I've allready tried that with the same result. In the mean time I discovered that all the new and newer cards are DMA enabled by default. That is the first problem. This somehow leads to the second problem ie. Somehow the IRQ or IO in the machine is now different with the new card. The log mess...

Everything works fine - except I'm trying to make a copy of the disc so as to be able to just put it into another system and boot it up - but no go! I've dd if=/dev/hdb of=imagefile.raw and then c...

tcp speed problem

Hi. For a while now I saw things like file copies etc. taking forever plus a few minutes to complete. I could see by the flickering of the led's and the usage indicator on the hub that it was not running at nearly full speed. (new genius fast ethernet hub I installed about 2 months ago). Then ran et...
