  • Sounds like some policy settings got messed up in the Reg. Here is a link to a .REG file that will restore the default Taskbar and Start key settings: Restore Taskbar and Start Menu Right-click and save as "nodesktop.reg." Double click to…

  • Can I just ask a question here...? Something that I have not really seen addressed, but was pointed out in the other poll thread: there already is a Team Icrontic. If we change names, there will be two Team Icrontics. Is this not a problem? Ca…
  • Hey Mudd, thanks, I am going to try to be less of a stranger 'round these parts. Dexter...

  • Here are a whole schwack of suggestions for you. Numbers 2 and 5 are kind of slick ways of getting around firewall blocks. Note again that any of these may be in contravention of your employer's policies and could get you fired. Dexter...
  • Hey, look at that pretty little Icrontic icon in my bookmarks now. Glad to have been able to help. Dexter... /edited to add: anyone struggling with this issue, download a program called Icon Sushi, use it to open your .ico file, and de…
  • Read this great article by Icrontic author Thrax: Repairing Windows XP in Eight Commands. It addresses exactly the problem you are having. Dexter...
  • I ran into this problem with the site I help admin, and managed to get it working, which is what I have been discussing with Keebs. It's a two fold issue, one being that FF only likes a certain resolution of icon when saving the icon for bookmarkin…
  • http://proxify.com/ There are lots of sites like the above. Plug your desired destination address into the box, check off your options, and off you go. If you have a particularly gung-ho server admin who reviews logs, they may pick up on this…
  • If it is powering up at all, you may want to try an IDE to USB adaptor, like this. I have had one for a couple of years, and it has been pretty useful for accessing hard drives that don't want to come up through the BIOS. If it's not powering up…
  • I see from a review that this model has an MPEG movie mode as well as the MiniDV mode. Are you recording in the MPEG mode? If you are, Windows Movie Maker will not recognize the media when you connect it. WMM does not work with MPEG based recordi…
  • Yes, it sounds like you are connected to input to the camera, not output to a computer. What kind of camera is it? Make and model. Let us know and someone may be able to help you. Dexter...
  • OK, IPB stands for Invision Power Board, as Jared pointed out above. That site is an Invision Power Board based site. Probably the term "IPB image" is something that IPB does to the image if there is a problem with the image? Maybe it got corrupt…
  • You can't copy and paste pictures to the message board, you need to attach them using the attachment manager. When you click Reply, scroll down and look for the button that says Manage Attachments. Click that, follow the steps to attach the file. …
  • Just a shot in the dark, but are you running any sort of music management software that may be managing the tracks in a library? Dexter...
  • IPB is not an image file format I recognize, and I just checked several extensive lists of file extensions to no avail. I, P, and B are letters used to describe types of compressed frames inside an MPEG file, but that's not likely to be what you are…
  • I think you missed part of my point. I don't think any other software will "recognize" this camera because it is not a Windows-recognizable device. The comm port was simply being used for specialized communication between the proprietary software …
  • Late to the thread, but wanted to chime in my "thank goodness!" as well....I've been a couple of crunch-ups in my time and I know that scary out-of-control feeling (one time I hit black ice, spun 180 degrees and slid backwards off the highway at ful…

  • Best FF Extension I have found recently is POPUP ALT ATTRIBUTE. It remedies the default that Firefox has which restricts the size of the ALT preview to about 100 characters. Firefox users on a Vbulletin forum like SM see shortened thread previews a…
  • If this was a homework assignment, this reply may be a little late, but I suggest you try DMN forums (Digital Media Net): http://www.dmnforums.com/cgi-bin/wwuglistcategory.cgi They have subforums for every major pro and prosumer digital media …
  • What media format are you capturing from? And what was used to record that timecode? Timecode is laid down on professional media formats using an audio signal on a special audio track. When you start recording on a tape with a camera or on the…
  • PC Inspector is a fantastic free program for recovery of image files from hard drive, camera, camera card, or any other storage media. I highly recommend it. Dexter... /Edit: I also have a Kodak Easy Share and can confirm that it will work w…

  • First of all, did you encode the Quicktime for streaming? You have to save it as a "hinted streaming file." Second, you need to confirm that your server is capable of handling streaming files. Not all web servers are optimized to provide stream…
  • Or just get one of these. Dexter...
  • I would double-check with your webhost as to how much data space you have been allocated. FTP rarely times out like that unless your connection is wonky. I run an FTP server here at work that we use to transfer MPEG-2 files all the time, many in e…
  • You need to find out what kind of CODEC the camera used to save the Quicktime files. A CODEC is the COmpressor / DECompressor algorithm used to make the video files, and there are several kinds of CODECs for Quicktime, several for AVI, etc. Once y…
  • If you try to capture NTSC in PAL, you will get basically what you described. You need to convert the NTSC to PAL before you capture it, unless your capture card also allows NTSC input. Otherwise you will need a separate piece of equipment to do t…

  • GooD, this is so awesome, I love it even better than the first time we heard it as a story in The Pub. The article turned out really well, good job to you and to Keebs for editing. Dexter...
  • No problem mate, I appreciate whatever you can do. Dexter...
