Re: Web Server on Win98SE?

Hi Ya CeaSaR I don't thing Personal Web Server would work for you anyway. It was designed to use on a local network or local system and not the WWW. It was later replaced by IIS (Internet Information Server) in Windows NT (I think) and IIS was available in Windows 2000 Professional. Then IIS was onl...

Re: Town flood, power outage, backup power ideas?

This is one of those things where the decision making has to be based on your needs and requirements. When I met my wife about 23 years ago her mother was bed ridden, the victim of a brain surgery gone bad. They tried but to get to an aneurism they cut too much away. The result was she was a vegetab...

Re: Town flood, power outage, backup power ideas?

I would suggest a generator. Years ago I had a little 4 KW unit that supported the house just fine, less running the electric drier. :) It did support the forced air gas furnace, the fridge and freezer all of which are on demand items. Lights, TVs and computers also. That has been since replaced wit...

Re: Strange (font???) problem with winxp

OK, let's see what it is doing. Let's see what font the active window is using. Right click an open desktop area and choose Properties. Select the Appearance tab in Display Properties. Click the Advanced button (right below Effects button). You should be in the Advanced Appearance dialog box. In the...

Re: Strange (font???) problem with winxp

Hi Kevin That file should have more of an effect on Styles: When you work in a program that loads both version 5 and version 6 of the Comctl32.dll file in Microsoft Windows XP, the program may stop responding, and an access violation may occur in the Comctl32.dll file. Note You may also see mixed wi...

Re: Strange (font???) problem with winxp

Hi Kevin Something you can check is your default font settings in the registry. I didn't see the operating system mentioned but should be about the same for XP and Vista systems. XP you would Click Start and choose Run and type REGEDIT into the Run dialog box. Now you want to navigate the registry i...

Re: MoBo Fan Controller Current Ratings

Hi Ya MrAl

Best guess would be try and find out what chip is used as the fan controller then look at the specs on the chip. This is something I never gave much thought to.

Re: Barking dog deterrent

Like I mentioned, I wouldn't trade our dogs for anything but at the same time I figure I have a responsibility to my neighbors. Fortunately ours don't bark much at all and we do have a fully fenced (6' privacy fence) yard for them to enjoy. Personally I have no use for people who allow a dog to cont...

Re: Barking dog deterrent

Too bad 90 % of these mutts today are of a totally different nature. What in the h*ll happened in the last 30 years? Easy question to answer. Actually I don't think the nature of dogs has changed in the past 50 years or more for that matter. I think it is more a matter of people changing. There was...

Re: faulty GFCI still supplies power

Well at least it is good to know that the newer ones have it. The only problem now is, how do you tell and 'old' one from a 'new' one? Is there a different model number? It might be hard to tell from the package itself unless of course it is stated somewhere. If i go out tomorrow and buy one, how w...

Re: faulty GFCI still supplies power

I have gotten to the point with the things that I am just little by little replacing the mains breakers (all 40 of them) with GFI circuit breakers. Periodically I can test them. Though the outlets are improving in reliability they still fail and many seem to fail in the On position. So do we do "Pus...

Re: Best way to make very large hole in cabinet

Naw, I think people are just waiting for the next hole to be cut in something. Once the hole was decided upon as to method and cut things became like anti-climatic so everyone is waiting for the next big cut. :)
