I feel a sense of recognition. Today I got my first email from a company saying one of my domains is about to expire (which it isn't it's good till may). The small print however transfers it to their registrar...and they tried to charge 20GBP which is a lot since I only pay 7USD a year for it.

Never trust a company called domain renewals!

Vista UAC Warning

I have several old games (age of empires 2 and older) which don't like running on vista without admin rights...but then UAC creeps in..so I switch it off (I only use vista for gaming), but then ARGH! Annoying security center warning!

Solution

Regedit > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center > add a new dword called UacDisableNotify and set the value to 1 > reboot

W00t!

On another note this is my 100th post!!! Weee

Oh and merry xmas everyone

Windows explorer crashes on right click

I kept having this problem when I right click a .exe file in windows, windows explorer would crash.

This is where shexview comes in! Download, run, turns out I had a flakey java extension, disable all works!!

*grumbles about tech support and not notifying of updates* I wake up >.> find out the dh server has been down for 2 hours...my control panel has been updated and my firewall link has gone missing (firewall still works but the editor is missing) looking at the bandwidth logs which only exist from the 11th of december..I can have a pretty good guess when it was updated.

The convos of nerds...

I was just talking to my friend ame about..thermosi..(plural for thermos) and how cool they are! I have one now (got it for free long story) which can carry 4 hot cups of tea for days! It's awesome!!...anyway after discussing the intricacies of thermosi we moved onto...mag lites!!! and the different cell capacities!! Awesome huh?

Komodo edit lagging on big files...

I use komodo edit to edit my php, html, whatever files and sometimes when editing large files (1k+ lines) it lags when typing, this tends to happen mainly when editing strings in php files...well to get around this next to the syntax checker results there is a bit that says what language is in use i.e. PHP changing this to "Text" removes the slow down yay xD
