  1. Your Favorite Ftp Client?

    Add my vote for SmartFTP; it does exactly what I need it to do. L.
  2. Windows Xp Question

    Dennis, I know! Surprise surprise, right? Also, someone sent me this link: Search Companion Starts If You Double-Click a Folder I figure I'll leave it here in case someone else needs it. L.
  3. Windows Xp Question

    Dennis, thankfully I do have system restore enabled, but it didn't even occur to me to use it now. So thank you for your very helpful suggestion. It did the trick. Thanks again, L. ETA: LOL at what you said, Point taken.
  4. Windows Xp Question

    As best as I can remember, this is what I did: I went into Control Panel>Folder Options>File Types. There I saw a bunch of different file types listed. File Folder and Folder were there, and since I wasn't sure which one I needed to fiddle with, I picked File Folder first, and changed the icon. This didn't do anything to change the folder icons anywhere, so I did a Google search which turned up something about how customized settings don't show up on XP unless you change the desktop appearance to Windows Classic style. I did that and restarted my computer. Still no dice, so I just changed the appearance setting back to Windows XP style. But then I tried to open a folder and discovered the problem I'd created. Then I tried restoring the default folder options settings a few times, tried restarting, etc, but nothing helped. This isn't the end of the world, as I can still go into a folder and right click and hit Open, and that allows me to see all the contents. However, this is bugging me because I would prefer that the folders open properly and because I did something, and I want to know what it is. Oh well, the search continues! Thanks for your help. L.
  5. Blog Engines

    Great question. I looked at Movable Type, Greymatter, and some others, but I finally settled on Nucleus. I couldn't be happier with my choice; it was relatively easy to install and customize, even though I have little knowledge of mySQL. Nucleus also has great forums for support, development, plugins, etc. All in all, a terrific product, and I'm thrilled to be supporting a lesser known but top quality engine. L. Digital Emissions
  6. Windows Xp Question

    Thanks, Dennis & Jim. I tried that already, and unfortunately it didn't help. I'm truly stumped. Thanks, L.
  7. Windows Xp Question

    I hope I'm posting this in the right forum. This is a completely random question, but maybe one of you gurus can help me. I'm running Windows XP, and I was trying to change the folder icon. I must have done something wrong though, because now when I doubleclick on any folder, instead of opening up and listing its contents, a new Search window opens. I'm usually pretty good at figuring these things out, but in this case I have no idea what I did or how to fix it, though I've tried. I must sound like an incompetent doofus. LOL Oh well! Any thoughts? Thank you in advance. L.

  9. Hi, Spitwad. I haven't checked the boards in a few days, so I didn't see your response till now. Don't be sorry; I just didn't want you to think that I am illiterate. Yes, I would love it if you'd fwd me the new email. Thanks for your help! Lerdo
  10. Hi, Spitwad. I replied to your post earlier, but I guess it didn't show up. At any rate, just wanted to say thanks for your response. However, the email info was not in the "account activated" email I received. I don't want my address, etc. posted on this board, but I do want you to see what I mean, so I'm going to fwd the email to you. Thanks, Lerdo
