  1. Ok, so there a windows xp computer, running SP3. Attached to the USB is a serial/usb adapter which is running to a DIGIAC 3000 as part of an A-level electronics course. When the programing software is run, it generates the error: Check cables; Communication/Power error - or something along those lines. I can't remember exactly. On the DIGIAC is a pic micro controller, on a development board. Could anyone shed some light on how to fix it, or point me towards some manuals or something?
  2. Has anyone ever had one of these? are they any good? I recently bought one off ebay for £30, and i'm wondering if i could have some sort of review before decide to keep it or give it as a prezzie. Also if anyone had a pdf of the manual, i would much appreciate it if you emailed it to me. Or send me a link to a public one Thanks, Davie

  6. not sure what modulation, my physics teacher recomendid it to me instead of a tesla coil XD he said something about recieving video feeds, if that helps

  8. okay, i want to have a better looking OS, but there are some rules it must adhear to. *It must install over xp, without uninstalling xp *it must run on less than 1gb ram *it must not be linux *it must look good, and have functionality so im thinking, something that looks like a netbook OS, but runs like a fullscreen browser. it has access to all my files and programs and has it all neatly presented. anyone know of such a thing?
  9. holy crap!! best deal ive ever seen!!
  10. i got it naw, some mod close this topic please?
  11. ta for tha, thats pretty much wa i wanted lol. by the way, if i had MSN+, and set a password on the chat logs, and forgot said password, would there be a chance of a tool that can crack the password protected chat logs? (directed towards all, i dnt wanna waste forum space )
  12. ChromeOS or Android? Why a "must not be Linux" restriction? That pretty much excludes the best options for what you're looking for. i wanted it to install within xp, like an application.
  13. Has just realised that the Fux0red gallery can be fixed by changin the theme back to the old one

  14. I no longer have the PotD file, i re-formated and forgot to backup :S
  15. is it possibly to trace someones family tree for FREE(no trials)
  16. ok, this is how it goes. i have access to a server room in my school, and by the looks of it, the door never locks. (its run by the same half assed it guy as in my other post). he personaly issued me a challenge. if i can screw up his system enough, he'll give me an admin account. if i havent by the end of the month, he revokes my account and tells the teachers to not alow me within 3 meters of any electrical device thats connected to the system. what he hasent said though is that im not alowed to do anything physical to the system. i.e im allowed to unplug the servers. so, if i could build a device that could distrupt the ehternet cables without disconnecting them, it would look a lot more impressive. any ideas on how do do this? i had magnet wire in mind, to create some sort of Electro Magnet Disrupter
  17. perhaps i should mention that the server runs windows, and is also from "RM", the shitty comouter company who rips of other software and passes it as its own.
  18. for those of you in the uk, and are using rm computer, i found this file on the internet. it works, and am now an administrator on my school computers edit: forgot the link
  19. you could try to configure logmein link
  20. i was in my school's crappy ICT lesson, when i noticed that the *new* windows search had been installed, and had the icon in the taskbar. my school isnt the best when it comes to computers, they have 23 shared drives, 20 of which are not supposed to be accessable. these drives contain exam results, school results, attendance databases and the like. anyways, i opened the options for that, and whoa-behold, i see all 23 drives! only 3 were ticked to be accessable. so naturally i clicked "index all", and saved the changes. then i thought about what i just did, and so opened my documents, pressed ctrl+s, opened the Disabled search pane, and searched for *.*. then i get full access to every file one the network, and surroptitiasly change my grades and dissabled the staff logins (by deleting the individual text files which the "secure" managment console so helpfully saved under G:/) and all i got for all that is a warning and a 1 month ban on my school account (bypassed by using 09spare1, the spare account for this year.
  21. www.bugmenot.com what do you think of this website?

  24. Man, cellphones make this so much more fun. too true
  25. i did tell him how to fix it, i showed him step by step how i did it and told him to implement passwords on the files. and i disabled the teachers acounts privilages, i jussed missed out a word :L in other words, they no-longer had the abillity to monitor our computers. i fixed that aswell
