  1. Thomas -- sorry, I have been out of pocket for awhile. I did something with RSS many months ago on a CSB web site. Let me dig around this weekend (since Hurricane Frances is ocming) to see what I can find out. -kw
  2. First, I do not discredit those who complain about IE, as there is some validity to their arguments. However, IMO, one of the problems with freeware is that there is no single point of responsibility, even if or when a security flaw may appear in their software. Nor, is their any requirement for thyem to go back and retest prior versions of their software or how it impacts other system applications. FWIW, I recently attended a live web cast presentation hosted by Microsoft's VP for Security. During his presentation, he addressed the complaint that patches and hotfixes appear to be "slow" in being released. He said that not only do they have to go back and review and test the problem and resolution for all prior versions (IE4, IE5, IE5.1, IE6, IE6.1), but they also have to test it and release separate versions for all of the various language versions of IE. All told, I think he said that for the last IE hotfix patch, they actually had some 400 separate versions of the patch that they ultimately released.
  3. Actually, there is a reg edit that fixes (or overcomes) the limitation that was introduced by the Feb 2004 Microsoft IE security update. STEP 1: For Windows 2000/XP, put the following into a text file: Or, for Windows 98, put the following into a text file: STEP 2: Rename the file something like ie-fix.reg STEP 3: Double click on the .reg file you have just created it, and you will get a pop up wiondow asking for you to confirm that you want to apply the selected registry change. HTH! -kw
  4. Hey, Rob: Shhh ... don't tell anyone about it! -kw
  5. Done! http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/id82.htm -kw
  6. To add to Bruce's remarks ... many people coming here from other web providers may be used to having a subdirectory of 'www'. With Unix/Linix, you can create an automatic redirect/mirror (or what Bruce refers to as a symbolic link). Bottom line ... think of it like a front door/back door to your house. No matter which door you go in, you will still enter your house! Same here. If you access your web site via FTP, no matter whether you click on the public_html folder or the www folder, you'lll end up in the same place!
  7. Bill, should I add this to the Help site -- home page and possibly FAQ page? -kw
  8. Keep me in mind that moving away from IE does not mean that you are safe ... the other browsers have their own security holes ... it's just that they have not yet been compromised or publicized. -kw
  9. Uninstall and Reinstall CSB. Make sure you record your CSB Host Setup information first, and as always, make sure you have backup copies of your .tlx files.
  10. Glenn, when talking about using the 'File > Save As', are you referring to PDF995? I've used this product for several years now.
  11. Check out Excel Everywhere as one solution -kw
  12. in response to Jayseae, all I can say is that their readme file was very explicit as to cause and effect of running the Adobe Reader Speedup utility, and also how to re-establish certain add-ins. Any utility that makes changes to your system should be taken cautiously. I would always advise to make a backup copy of your windows registry, or if on XP, make sure your system restore is turned on. -kw
  13. I use Trend, and their server version allows you to configure it to check for updates hourly!
  14. not sure it's easier (the 'inquirer.net' solution), since it's a manual method. the link I provided does exactly the same thing - but all from within little vb program.
  15. I came across this quick little VB utility that moves infrequently used Adobe Reader plugins to an 'optional' directory, thus speeding up the time it takes for Adobe Reader to startup! It works with virtually all versions past and present of Adobe Reader. Check it out here: http://www.tnk-bootblock.co.uk/prods/misc/index.php -kw
  16. I will try to digest and summarize this message thread, and add it to the help site in the near future. Thanks, Bruce for helping Sam(antha). I've worked with her for quite awhile on Globalscape's CuteSITE Builder user forum! -kw
  17. I've summarized comments and added them to a page on the TCH Help web site! Check it out! -kw
  18. Whoops - when I posted Jim's instruction to the TCH Help Web Site, I inadvertently dropped the third section within the gray box. It has now been corrected -- http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/id212.htm -kw
  19. Bruce, I've added your comments and instructions to a new page on the TCH Help Web Site -kw
  20. Lisa, I've added you to the Meet The Gurus page! -kw
  21. I've updated the Meet the Gurus page - please let me know of any other changes or corrections! -kw
  22. Robert, even the TCH Help Web site's Meet the Gurus page now reflects your new highly exalted position. Congratulations! -kw
  23. Appreciate the input. This is not going to be either easy or quick. Each of the other web sites do their own thing and have their own processes. So whatever we come up with will have to be tweaked for each. What I'm hoping right now is that I can get each remote web site to generate a file of userid's whose passwords are coming due to be changed, and then hopefully forward back to them a new file with suerid, old password and new password for them to apply on their side. Thanks, again!
