  1. The Awstats for my subdomains has not been updating at all. The last update was 10-11-2004. Any ideas why this has stopped? Thank You
  2. Win A Custom Built Computer!

    Here's my contribution to the madness
  3. You would just have to go to this site to see what it's about. I have come across this site doing some research. I think that it's very shocking. Is our legal system really getting this bad? http://www.perkel.com/pbl/index.htm
  4. Why Is It So Hard To Find A Good Community?

    It's not like it was back in the old BBS days when you had a small community. That is something that I miss also. The monthly BBS parties were fun also where we got together and had fun. There still a BBS here but I think it's slowly dying now. People go on there just to play the games any more. I think that you will find a community to your liking but might take a while or hopfully not. I think a localized community would be better.
  5. Os Commerce Question

    Yeah. Easy to edit if you know PHP :-) But that's all you have to do though and set your configurations. Some of the best Contributions, in my opinion is EasyPopulate, PayPal IPN and Image Check. There are lots of others to choose from also.
  6. Total Choice Web Hosting Page Updates!

    The test drive version of the Cpanel is different than what we, or maybe I, use. Wouldn't that be a little misleading?
  7. Page Width Freaks In Opera

    I see the same problem and I use Opera 7.11 build 2887
  8. Email Forwarding

    Great info, AndyB. Didn't know it worked that way. Thank You Thumbs Up
  9. Silly Game!

    How about Eyemonit (I'm on it)? Sounds silly, I know
  10. Game On!

    I say that we play Monopoly, UNO, Spades or something. Have like a ladder tournament. That would be fun and involve a lot of people.
  11. Xp Pro With Dos Apps

    Of course I found that site after I posted. --- TameDOS Are you running DOS Programs? If you run DOS programs, you have probably noticed that the DOS program will take over the CPU. This can be devastating in a multi-user environment such as Microsoft Terminal Server or Citrix Metaframe. A dual processor machine can slow to a crawl with just a few users. Tame allows you to efficiently run DOS programs Tame has a long history of solving this problem. Tame will monitor all the DOS applications that are running on the system, and allocate CPU resources efficiently so that applications that need the CPU resources--get them. Tame can automatically detect appropriate settings for most applications so that the system runs as smoothly as possible with the least amount of effort. Just load the Tame program in the DOS session, and Tame takes care of the rest. Tame improves compatibility of DOS applications Some applications have expectations that are not met in a multi-user system, or behave in a way that causes problems. Tame can provide an isolation layer to solve problems like this. Here is a partial list of problems that DOS programs run into. Tame solves these problems and many others. Application changes the system date Application forces the console to full screen mode Application uses file locks excessively Only one user at a time can start the application Printing is delayed, or does not start until you exit the application Application depends on BIOS services that are not implemented
  12. Xp Pro With Dos Apps

    Something that I found on the net. Hope it will give you some ideas or help. I use to run Tamer to play my DOS games on XP but I just can't remeber where that darn page is. I'll try and find it later unless someone else knows where it is. --- September 3, 2002 Old Apps Find A New Home On Windows XP By Brian Proffit Microsoft Windows 9x users have been reluctant to move to Windows NT for years, but around the same time it released Windows XP, Microsoft dropped its support for Windows 95. Industry insiders speculate that Windows NT 4.0 support will be the next to go. In effect, options are shrinking for those who want to hang on to the older OSs. The reluctance to upgrade has been based on two factors: heavier hardware requirements and poor compatibility with applications not specifically written for Windows NT. The hardware has caught up, to the point that even today's low-end systems are sufficient for Windows XP. But what about application compatibility? Although on the surface, Win XP is the Windows version least compatible with its predecessors, it has special tools that give Win XP users more options for compatibility than ever before. These tools, some obvious and some hidden, let you tweak the environment so that many older applications will run. Running DOS Programs DOS programs are the oldest, and since Microsoft dropped the DOS Compatibility Mode from Windows XP, you might think it dropped support for DOS programs altogether. In fact, new options in Windows XP may make running DOS programs easier. Right-click on a DOS program, and select Properties from the pop-up menu. Most of the tabs in the Properties dialog are familiar, but the Compatibility tab is new. This tab lets you set the program to run in 256-color mode and at a resolution of 640-by-480. You can also disable the default visual themes that Windows XP imposes on programs. There's also a less obvious and more powerful tool. With DOS, you could fine- tune the environment for your programs by modifying the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files. In some cases, you'd reboot the system with a special configuration just for one program and then go back to the normal setup to run other programs. Windows XP lets you define a customized Config.sys and Autoexec.bat for each of your DOS programs. Here's how it's done. First, copy the C:\Windows\System32\Config.nt and C:\Windows\ System32\Autoexec.nt files to the directory of your DOS program, then edit them to reflect the configuration you want. Save them with a new name. Bring up the Properties dialog for the DOS program, move to the Program tab, and click on the Advanced button. Enter the Config and Autoexec filenames you created for the program and Windows XP will run the program in its own customized environment. This dialog also lets you try to slow down DOS programs that performed actions based on the clock speed of your processor. Programs that ran well on a 50-MHz system can be unusable on an 850-MHz system without this emulation. Windows Programs Not Designed for XP The three main reasons older Windows programs fail under Windows XP are that they query for a specific Windows version number, they expect results that older versions of a Windows API call return, and they expect user folders to be in a different location or format. These problems can be fixed by setting the Windows program to run in compatibility mode. Right-click on a Windows program, and select Properties. If you click on the Compatibility tab, you will see a drop-down list that lets you set the OS best suited for this program. Click in the Compatibility mode box, and select the operating system. Using this mode will activate a set of patches (called shims) that make Windows XP treat the program as an earlier version of Windows would. What if you aren't sure which environment to use, or the program has other compatibility problems? There is a powerful package hidden on the Windows XP CD that will help you fine-tune your application environment. The Application Compatibility Toolkit In the \Support\Tools directory of the Windows XP CD, Microsoft included an Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT). An update (Version 2.5) came out in April, and you can download it from www.microsoft.com/windows/appexperience. The ACT contains four tools for improving application compatibility. Two of the tools, Application Verifier and PageHeap, are designed for software developers, who use them with a debugger to test areas that might pose problems under Windows XP. But the other two, QFixApp and Compatibility Administrator, can help end users tweak the environment so that older apps run successfully. QFixApp lets you test a number of low-level tweaks on a specific application. We don't have enough space to discuss each of the 199 applicable fixes, so we'll cheat and show you a couple of shortcuts to finding the particular shims that will restore your program. Open QFixApp, and select the application you need to work on. Click on the Layers tab, and select a layer. The layers in QFixApp correspond to the compatibility modes we saw earlier in the application's Properties dialog. Select a layer, such as Win95, and then select the Fixes tab. You can see that the Win95 compatibility mode is a predefined set of 54 shims (Figure 1). This number can fluctuate, however, depending on whether you've installed the latest patches and updates. From there, you can tailor the list to add or remove shims. For example, if your application changes the screen mode and your system is stuck there when the program ends, scroll down and try the ForceTemporaryModeChange fix. As you select a fix, a description of its function appears in the lower pane. Click on the Run button to test the effect of the changes on your application. When you close QFixApp, the environment changes you've made will be stored with the executable. Until then, you can select and deselect shims as you wish. Browsing Predefined Fixes You don't have to search for fixes by trial and error. Microsoft includes a number of predefined fixes, and you can browse those for tips. Open the Compatibility Administrator tool, and expand System Database | Applications. A good start in tweaking your application is to find a similar program in the database. For example, if you are working with a program in the 102 Dalmatians series, select one of the programs in that series for which Microsoft has already defined fixes. Cross-referencing with QFixApp, you see that the EmulateHeap and EmulateMissingEXE fixes are already included in the Win95 compatibility mode, but the IgnoreAltTab fix isn't. Try setting this shim in QFixApp and running your application. Note that Windows XP provides predefined fixes for the application's setup program as well as the app itself. You can group the fixes associated with an application into one package. Compatibility Administrator becomes even more important in corporate IT departments that need to support legacy applications. Once you have determined which set of fixes is required, click on New and a new database is created under Custom Databases. With the new database selected, click on Fix to open a wizard that will guide you through creating an application fix set for this database. Follow the prompts to choose a compatibility mode, and set the additional shims you identified during your QFixApp testing. Finally, group related files with this application. Windows XP will try to find these for you when you click on Auto-Generate. Use File | Save to save the custom database to an SDB file that you can send to other computers. If you have a number of legacy applications that all require similar sets of fixes, you can create a new compatibility mode in your custom database. With the database highlighted, click on Mode. You can name the mode Legacy and select the set of fixes to be applied when this mode is selected. Once the database has been saved and installed, you can apply the whole set of fixes to a new app simply by selecting the Legacy compatibility mode. To add this mode to another system, copy the SDB file to the other computer and run Sdbinst.exe to install it. The Windows NT platform earned its reputation for being reluctant to run older applications. But with the new tools in Windows XP, you have a better chance than ever of keeping your legacy programs going until they can be updated.
  13. New Chat Room!

    I would like to make a suggestion. Don't have Java IRC connect automatically. Have an option and a link for those using mIRC version 5.82 and above . The link would be irc://arena.webchat.org/tch or which ever server you want to use. I can't create that link on this forum because it's mean and won't let me. Just make sure to set your options in mIRC. In the File/Options/IRC/Catcher/ dialog you'll see some options to 'Enable support for chat links' and to '(Always) Confirm chat link requests'. For safety reasons better keep the latter enabled. As long as there is someone in the channel, you do not need to register your nickname. I’m in that channel right now and will continue to stay in there, unless my computer crashes, to keep the channel open. I’m on IRC all the time so one more channel and server won’t kill me. Now me being at my computer is another story. Rick pops in sometimes, so you can bug him there. Anyway… If you need to download mIRC just go to their website at http://mirc.com It only cost $20 to register but you can use it free also. As a free use, the nag screen comes up very seldom and not an annoyance.
  14. Where Is Interchange?

    Ok then. Thank you for the help.
  15. Where Is Interchange?

    It did't show in my welcome e-mail. I read it again to make sure. Still not there. Add one to my learning proccess Thank you for help me with finding it.
