Re: Winding a Toroidal Ferrite Core

I've never tried to wind something as thick as 14 gauge wire but the cores are, in my experience, fairly sturdy. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think breaking the core is a risk but chipping off pieces along the edge is a very real possibility. My word of caution is to not pull too tigh...

Re: Tips about Bad Network Adapters and Hard Drives

Corrupted system files A system has crashed with what appears to be bad system files. Windows can't (won't) fix it. You go green thinking about your lost data. Before you do anything drastic and cause the data to be lost forever, remove the drive and put it in an external USB drive enclosure. They ...

Re: Hooking up a captel phone to the internet

I have a brand new 8-port switch you can have for the cost of shipping. You would connect the phone line from the wall to the phone, the power from the outlet to the phone and from your cable modem to the 8-port switch. You would use three of the eight ports to connect you computer, Vonage box and C...

Re: S/N marking that won't wash off

These seem to meet all of your needs, adjustable for each number, high temp, chemical resistant and permanent. Traceable PCB labeling in the production process is even clearly listed as a use.

Re: expensive ink!!

Those refill kits were taken out of the picture thanks to newer printer cartridges with a chip inside that tells the printer whether it's exhausted or not. No amount of refilling will help.

Re: another xp question... sorry ......

Open a folder and set it up exactly how you want it (Sort By, View As, etc.) then on the menu bar click "Tools" then "Folder Options...", once opened click the "View" Tab then click the "Apply To All Folders" button. Now all you have to do is click "OK" at the bottom.

Re: Is this real ?

I highly doubt it's possible. Someone more intelligent than I could do the math to prove it impossible I'm sure. If the video is legit (un-edited) I would say there's a hot plate under that table covering.

I make it a point to not use companies who are sneaky and spam. An honest post about your business and what you offer in the proper forum would be a step in the right direction.

Re: Program to clean-out Macromedia flash player

Have you tried going through the uninstaller? Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs and then click Adobe Flash and select install. It should be that easy.
