I actually don't know the answer because I don't use MS Office, but you probably need to have either Outlook or Outlook Express configured on your PC. You can configure your Outlook/Outlook Express to use your Hotmail account.

it doesn't have to be compeltely disabled and the admin user won't get the annoying prompts.

I've only used Vista for about 5 minutes (literally), so does this mean that as an admin user you won't receive any prompts? To me that doesn't sound like a good solution either. I've never personally had to deal with UAC, but whenever I hear about it it always makes me question why MS didn't just take a page out of Ubuntu's book and implement sudo-ish system.

 Because who likes to edit files over the network? Pshh that sounds like madness to me. I only edit files that are safely and securely located on my local hard drive. I can't fault MS for this bug. Users should use some common sense. 

 

:P

Just trying to install any of these hacks could potentially destroy the MBR and render a machine unbootable, which isn’t necessarily a problem for pirates.

There in lies the problem for proprietary software vendors. They're at a huge disadvantage because once their software has been sold and installed locally on someone's machine, that person can do whatever the heck they want with it. As you just said - pirates don't mind inconveniencing themselves by accidentally effing up the MBR a few times if it means that they'll eventually be free to re-use that software on other PC's they have lying around once they get it right.

Thanks Davo!

Do you guys ever check your traffic stats to see how many people still type in pchardware.com? I wonder who the oldest active member is... I gotta be gettin up there :D

Hey guys. I really got into the habit of typing: hothardware.com/forum in my browser's address bar. hothardware.com/cs2007/forums is a bit of a pain. Could you please setup an auto-redirect so that hothardware.com/forum automatically redirects to the forum home page?

I see the benefit of having users type in hothardware.com and then clicking on the forum link. But honestly the forum itself has plenty of advertisements so I don't think you'll lose a lot of revenue by giving users an easy url that lets them go directly to the discussion board. 

 Also - pchardwareforum.com (whoa that's old school!) gives me a "page cannot be found" error. Update those DNS records yo!

Thanks!

 I'm actually fairly confident that they'll meet this release date. Granted, it'll almost definitely be late Q4 of 2011 - but I think it's doable. Legacy support is always a pain when developing a new OS - but with virtualization becoming as mature as it is - they'll probably be able to create a built in virtual machine to support all of the older legacy apps. 

Developers should be able to spend most of their time developing the newer technologies without worrying about backwards compatibility. Not backwards compatible? Launch a VM and you're all set. 

3 - 4 mothers boards in a single case? I don't see what the benefit of that would be. I also don't know how feasible that is. Just look into using a 1U rack mountable server chassis. Even if you never plan on buying a rack you can still just stack the 1U servers on top of each other. Look into something like this:

I for one think it's an awesome acquisition. While MySQL has been uber-popular with web start ups, it's actually be TRAILING other dbms like Oracle and Postgres in terms of features and functionality. Sun will probably end up dumping hundreds of millions of dollars into MySQL R&D and I think in the long run, this will lead to a much better MySQL Database Manager.

 In Schwartz we trust... :D
