  1. they're talking about trackers not clients, but yes utorrent is awsome. Well for the most part I use newsgroups to download things (especially movies), but by far my favorite tracker is Demonoid, and I use Zcult-FM for comics. http://www.demonoid.com/ (requires registration) http://trackerb.zcultfm.com:6969/ http://trackerx.zcultfm.com:6969/ There you go not reading posts thoroughly again... i tend to use azureus and mininova. Tho, since a couple people have mentioned it, I may check out utorrent
  2. IIRC you can change the name in iTunes just like you can change the name of a playlist. Right Click -> Rename. Something to that effect.
  3. I got Apple DOS 3.1 and
  4. This (i hope) should just be so that you can enter you PIN and they can attach it to your account w/o having to tell the teller what your PIN is. Basically the machine you swipe your card through is a magstripe reader that identifies your account. You type your PIN on the keypad so that you don't have to say your new PIN aloud or write it on a piece of paper. That box is probably then connected back to their LAN to contact the database about the PIN change.
  5. It does not, you can tell because if you change your pin your bank doesnt issue you a new card. I do believe it may have the account # on it but idk. So with a MAG card reader/writer I can change my pin code without the bank knowing and still have it work in the ATM when I use it? Read what he said more carefully. It does not, you can tell because if you change your pin your bank doesnt issue you a new card. I do believe it may have the account # on it but idk. your PIN info is not on the card because if it was then everytime you changed your PIN the bank would have to change the info on the mag stripe. Since they don't do that we can conclude that the PIN info is not contained within the mag stripe
  6. Mepis 6.0 beta on a Dell Inspiron 5150 I originally ran Mepis 3.2 on this lappy then switched to Debian Etch w/Xfce, but found that after multiple package updates I was having trouble keeping things running and that it was time for a clean install. I noticed that Mepis 6.0 beta had been released and thought I'd give it a whirl. Nice to have a system that "just works" again. Waiting for the "official" 6.0 release and then I'll probably do a fresh install again just to keep everything clean.
  7. Just for those who don't know, google actually has a linux specific search that's really helpful if you're looking for answers to something http://www.google.com/linux/ has a nice penguin and everything
  8. yes it does, makes it basically one command install for anything in the repositories
  9. Linux can be a lot of fun to use. It is probably a good idea, however, to put it on a spare computer until you get used to using it (which is what matt should have done and then he wouldn't be so angry). Linux will run on pretty much anything, if you have an old computer lying around, or can get a hold of one, throw linux on there. That way, you have your normal computer to google error messages and the problems that you have without having to dual boot each time you have an issue. Personally, I put linux on my laptop the first time because I had a desktop that I could use to google things and I wanted to format my laptop anyway. I started with SimplyMEPIS and I never looked back. I tried out various distros once I got the hang of it and am in the process of switching all my other computers over to linux. I even got my girlfriend to use it on her home computer. As for your question about windows programs, yes its true, your windows software won't work. In all honesty, with the exception of games, I have found excellent replacements for everything I needed to do on my laptop. Sometimes there even seems to be more options on the linux side. I'll give you a few examples: Internet Explorer -> Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Konqueror Photoshop -> The Gimp, Inkscape Office -> Open Office, KOffice iTunes -> gtkPod, Amarok, Juk AIM -> GAIM, AIM (linux binary) Windows Media Player -> MPlayer, Xine, Totem mIRC -> XChat, epic4, irssi, bitchx Notepad -> vi, vim, emacs I'm probably forgetting a lot of things, but you get the idea. Good luck with your linux adventures, it can be a lot of fun, and you learn a lot. P.S. If you just want to get your feet wet try out a live cd. SimplyMEPIS, Kanotix, Knoppix, Damn Small Linux, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu all have easy to use live cds to get you started.
  10. I hope your are made the typo and not the GNOME team. You should spell the word 'application' with two p's and only one 'l.' ← For someone so picky about someone else's spelling your grammar blows
  11. I'd say you got this because you don't have the correct (japanese) character set. Since this appears to be windows, i believe you can get the character sets from the microsoft website if you are so inclined. Interesting screen shot never the less.
  12. How many teenage to 20-something people have $199 a month to spend on a cell phone? Doesn't sound like a very well thought out business plan to me.
  13. There is also a temporary patch that is being touted by Leo Laport and his security expert Steve Gibson. Information about the patch may be found here: http://www.grc.com/sn/notes-020.htm
  14. Am I the only one that thinks that the background music is *really* annoying?

  15. Ive got this same problem with System Idle Process ← That, however, is sure signs that you have been infected by multiple worms, viruses and trojans. ← Except, of course, that this is what the System Idle Process is supposed to do http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintas...Idle%20Process/
