  1. The Newbie Welcome Thread

    Who: RamsFan What: Computer Network Service Company Owner and Football Junkie! When: 35 yrs old Where: Little Rock, Arkansas Why: Football Freak, of course... Just wish I had more time to get online & collaborate. Fantasy Bio: Where to start.... I started playing FF when I was about 12 years old through snail mail leagues, although I really did not fare too well in them (played 2 or 3 different season). :-) I really started playing more consistently in the mid-90's on ESPN.com, CBS Sports Line, et al. We had a local live draft league here with approx 10 teams that I commished for a few years. FWIW, I won on ESPN a couple of times and the local league once. Generally made the playoffs each year. I have not played at all over the past 4 years, so I am anxious to get back in the fold. I am playing in a couple of leagues this year, and plan to kick some major butt. I have only been a huddler for a few months, but I actually was a member for one season back a few years ago, although my old account did not work as it had been dormant since! It is THE SHIZ when it comes to info, however! Any more questions, just ask!
  2. Polk update

    It is VERY clear you do not know Polk. <seg>
  3. My Space

    Oh, I have plenty of thoughts, but they are not overly appropriate for this forum. :-) However, sounds like you gave him good advice!
  4. speaking of children and computers

    Then it sounds to me like your sister shouldn't go out in search of the cutting edge technologies... Here is the bottom line: http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/posters/65b7/zoom/
  5. Remote Desktop Software

    Do you have a server @ your store? If you have a Windows 2003 Small Business Server for instance, Remote Web Workplace would be the way to go, as it is securely accessed over HTTPS (port 443). If you have a firewall in place, you should consider gaining network access by using a VPN connection. If you don't have a hardware firewall, it is worth considering... I am glad to see that security is on your mind! Kudos!
  6. Nightmares...

    This is probably off base, but I thought I'd throw it out there. A few years ago our son went through a period of "scary" dreams that never really quite added up. After a few nights, we finally came to the conclusion that it was because he did not want to sleep in his room alone. We made the mistake of allowing him to sleep in our room a few times, and then he would start to tell all kind of tall tails to get us to let him stay in our room. Not sure this really helps, but I thought I'd throw it out there, especially if the dreams sound a little fishy.
  7. speaking of children and computers

    For those with an aptitude for IT, I agree. Those youngsters will not be satisfied with running the systems the masses do... They will go out & explore on there own. We're not talking about future IT people here most likely; we are talking about Average Joe Jr. If Jr. shows an aptitude and desire, then by all means push & steer him/her towards the cutting edge of technology. And I beg to differ, if simply using & excelling at Microsoft products were easy as pie, many of us IT folks would not have good paying jobs. What is probably easy (or easier) for those of us huddlers (we've already shown we embrace technology by virtue of being online for more than email & espn.com), is not so for the majority of the public.
  8. Torry Holt - not a top 10 WR this year

    Holt works out Wide receiver Torry Holt, recovering from offseason knee surgery, jogged through a few routes and even joined his teammates for sprints — albeit at about half-speed — after Thursday's workout at Rams Park. Holt said his knee was "feeling pretty good ... it's coming along." Still, Linehan said he wants Holt to be cautious about pushing himself. "He made a big commitment; he missed the Pro Bowl because he wanted to accelerate his rehab," Linehan noted. "He's at a point in his career where we've got to manage it and make sure he's able to finish a long, grueling season." By Bill Coats of the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
  9. Camcorder question

    Look up your service tag on Dell's site to see what your machine has...

  10. speaking of children and computers

    Wouldn't the idea be to learn a skill that is both useful and marketable in the job force... Being a rebel is nice, but the world operates Windows, like it or not. While that will likely change in the future, knowing how to navigate the relevant systems of the day, is what is prudent. Who knows what will supplant Windows; it may very well be Linux, but then again, it may be some little known operating system yet to be mainstream. Not knowing the ins & outs of Windows, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office will actually be detrimental to a kids education.
  11. Yeah, Hill-billy land is doing pretty good with her...
  12. Remote Desktop Software

    There are lots of good options... Remote Desktop (built-in to Windows XP Pro - not included with XP Home) http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/m...emoteintro.mspx pcAnywhere -- Symantec product & is pretty good http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/pr...d=pf&pvid=pca12 LogMeIn https://secure.logmein.com/home.asp GoToMyPC -- owned by Citrix & widely used. There are XM Radio codes to get 30 days free I believe https://www.gotomypc.com Have fun!
  13. Tim Duncan........

    That was my point exactly, Kobe brought another 27 games to the win column. Dirk or Nash don't do that 'cause they are on fairly good teams without them.

    As much as I don't care for Realtors, they generally know the law and can point you in the right direction. It seems we all know a realtor or two... Or, as I also said, go to the City Attorney.
  15. winblows xp question

    No sir, according the MS EULA's you can not mix & match FPP & OEM. While it may "work" and you may get some call center newb to do it, it is in violation of licensing policy.
