Re: Stripped laptop screw--any advice?

He stripped the head, not the thread. hm well if you drill the screw enough to insert another one afterwards you will most likely damage the thread as well... but you can also not put it back, I rarely screw as many as I took out when reassembling, unless it has heavy moving parts (see picture) why...

Re: Constant Network ARP Traffic

I've seen a computer with vista do that kind of arp request for the gateway all the time.. It's the only vista computer I had on my network though, so I can't confirm if the OS always do it

Re: data transfer between computers

Actually you will need to setup your ip adresses manually with a crossover cable (they just have to be in the same range (10.10.10.1 /10.10.10.2 for example), and still need to share your folders. You can then access them by typing \\10.10.10.x\sharedfoldername (x being the address of the other comp...

Strange tester (?)

Hi everybody, I found the following in a telco room. The crappy pictures should show: 1) an IBDN device with an RJ-45 at one end, a red DEL on the other end and ST7001 written on it. It can be opened to see a small Duracell battery but I can't figure out a way to reach it. It was found plugged into ...

Re: taking control of the rj-11 output of a modem?

taking control of the rj-11 output of a modem?

What exactly is a soft modem? if it takes control of the modem's hardware, can you create your own "softmodem" that would send something else than tones? like you could plug an rj11 phone cord in it and at the other end you could have any other device? could it be possible to at least use ...

Re: Microcontroller fiddling . . .

I would be interested in info for microcontrollers.. I've done a bit of assembler with atmel chips in college, and I really loved it.. I would tend to think that one with an easy usb interface would be more practical as you would spend less time...

Re: Paging file on windows XP

For some reason I believe it just recycles the memory, like cleaning old stuff and putting in the new stuff.. It would explain why I never had any problems, with the q6600@ 3GHz that kind of task can be done quickly...I guess (?) Well I don't program heavy applications, just learning-level stuff, bu...

Paging file on windows XP

With 3.xx GB of ram available for the paging, why would one bother keeping it on a disk at all?!?
My computer shuts down much faster with no page file, and never presents any memory error, even with multiple games and applications simultaneously running. Quid?
