    which comedian should i see?

    Jim Gaffigan performed at my school recently. It was a great show (Beyond the Pale) and I definitely recommend seeing it if you get the chance.

    Interesting headline on yahoo.com

    Seems ok to me. Pending the Dems already had a majority in the House, this win gives them majority in the Senate and therefore in Congress. Unless I'm missing what you're trying to point out. -Jeff

    best media player?

    I've been using JetAudio lately. It's nice because it has a number of different options for appearance. In normal mode, it's a bit bigger than Winamp, but it also can be minimized so that it's the same size as the start menu/taskbar. Worth a look I'd say. -Jeff

    Laptop auto-click

    I have an Inspiron 9300, and on mine, this is how to set it up: -Check your taskbar for the touch pad. -Right Click on the touch pad icon -> Mouse properties -Go to the "touch pad" tab -Uncheck "tapping" -Apply Changes (There is also an option on mine for "tap off when typing") Should work. If the touch pad icon isn't in the task bar, I'm not quite sure where to find it, but I'll look around for it. -Jeff
  6. Hey All, I'm using C++ and EnumWindows to attempt to get the handles of all of my open programs. Unfortunately I can't seem to find the perfect combination of tests to get only the windows for open programs. I'm either getting too many or not enough. I'm using a combination of: if (!IsWindowVisible(hWnd)) return true; if (!GetParent(hWnd) == 0) return true; if (!GetWindow(hWnd, GW_OWNER) == 0) return true; to only grab the windows that are programs (I read somewhere that this was one way of doing this). If the window fails all of these tests, then it should be a program window and the function will continue. For some reason though, I'm not getting windows that are minimized, or even obstructed by other programs unless I bring them to the front. I was under the impression that the IsWindowVisible() function only checks to make sure that a window has the VISIBLE flag and not that it was actually visible. Any idea how to make this work? Thanks, Jeff

    Not all processes, just windows of open programs, whether they're minimized or not.

    Connected but not?

    Nothing seems particularly out of order there with the exception of the failed pings and traceroute. Is the computer you made this post on also on your wireless network or is it wired? If it's wired, I'd check your router configs to make sure that you're not filtering wireless traffic. If it's wireless...well...I'm stumped there. Since you've said it's not a firewall issue, it doesn't appear to be a problem with your computer's settings as you've posted them. -Jeff

    Suite

    In the US, a suite definitely can mean a luxury hotel room, but it also can be used as a nicer way to describe an apartment or office. -Jeff

    Dell Battery Recall....Again

    Hey all, I just found out that Dell is recalling laptop batteries once again. Affected batteries, "under rare conditions, may overheat and cause fire". Check out: Dell Battery Program to see if you have an affected battery. This time around, I did. The thing about it is, last time there was a battery recall, my battery was of the same series as those affected, but when I put in my PPID number, it told me I didn't need a replacement. This time I did though. Same battery, been using it all this time since the last recall. What would have happened if my battery would have overheated since last time, when it was defective without Dell's knowledge? Anyway, give it a look if you have a Dell laptop. Only 20 more business days until delivery... -Jeff

    eon8.com

    I just found out about it about 15 mins ago. I managed to get onto eon8.com. I guess I'll sit on here for the last 25 mins of my countdown and see what happens. Yay for having 2 computers right next to eachother. -Jeff

    Mario Kart 64 for PC

    Quote:Original post by Alpha_ProgDes Quote:Original post by GodlyGamr Quote:Original post by PumpkinPieman Quote:Original post by _Sigma Mario Kart 64 running in an emulator? (you must own the game to do this tho!!) Not even, I don't think you're allowed to duplicate or backup your game even if you own it. I think they have a 24 hour legality policy on roms, but this could just be a myth. I believe the consensus (off of something from Nintendo's website) was that you're allowed to make a backup copy of a cart, but you have to be the one to do it. Otherwise, you actually have a backup of somebody else's cart. There was just a post recently about it here. -Jeff Gotta link for that? Then the mods can make a sticky. From Nintendo Quote:There is a good deal of misinformation on the Internet regarding the backup/archival copy exception. It is not a "second copy" rule and is often mistakenly cited for the proposition that if you have one lawful copy of a copyrighted work, you are entitled to have a second copy of the copyrighted work even if that second copy is an infringing copy. The backup/archival copy exception is a very narrow limitation relating to a copy being made by the rightful owner of an authentic game to ensure he or she has one in the event of damage or destruction of the authentic. Therefore, whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet. As far as the thread I saw it in, I'll search around a bit. -Jeff

    Stanley Cup where? Here? Right......

    I was very happy to see Carolina win. They had 3 players from the Flyers. Seeing Brind'Amour holding the cup made my day because he'd been waiting 17 years for it and he wasn't getting it done with us. -Jeff

    What should I do with...

    ...a computer that I got from my grandparents? They were just going to throw it away...so I grabbed it. Specs: Pentium 1 @ 166 MHz 16 MB RAM upgradable to 128 (and I think I have a 64 stick around here somewhere) 2 GB HD 8x CDROM Currently running Win95... Wondering if there's anything cool I can do with it. I'm sure somebody here has some ideas. -Jeff

    NFL Draft 2006

    Quote:They had their eye on a replacement Tackle for the aging (38 this year) Brad Hopkins. Amazingly a projected middle first round tackle Winston Justice was sitting on the board 20 picks later then he should have been. Instead of grabbing the future pro bowl left tackle (The toughest position in the NFL, and rarest for great talent) they moved down hoping he'd still be around. The Eagles snatched him up. Yeah...sorry about that. I didn't even get to watch the draft, and I actually had no prior knowledge of the talent of that player. I just knew that when my brother told me we drafted somebody by the name of "Winston Justice" that some good had to come out of it. -Jeff
