I duel boot here with vista/xp pro. But I really have not had much trouble with vista itself it is getting the other programs to run correctly. Like Acrobat reader 8 you need to go in the properties on the .exe and change it to run in XP Pro SP2 mode.

Every forum needs at least one IT guy, whos a bit off...

My dad's an IT guy and We didn't put that much memory on this computer I think... But good conferences, my CPU was free (from IT conference) dell moniter (Wide screen free, from same conference)...

I think I have at least 250Gb... Not 100% sure.

No wonder You don't have problems with vista;)

Thank goodness for the 500gb drives at a reasonable price...Too bad drives are sold in a differnt unit that what a real Gigabyte is. Up to a terabyte+ here. As soon as I get a new job, going to get more, and a new video card. Ah, I love making new machines/upgrading.
What I do not understand is why people need to get an OS as soon as it hits the market. Its like taking experamental non FDA approved medication in a way. Wait for the kinks to get fixed up, you dont wanna me stuck with another ME.

Funny, I remember when I bought my first pentium pc. 100mhz of raw POWER and 16mb of memory. IT had a 1gb hard drive. I thought that was ridiculous. Nobody needs a whole gigabyte of storage... Boy was I wrong. I have 300gb now. What the heck are you guys storing to need terabytes of storage at home? It doesn't matter what your response is cuz everybody knows your keeping PORN!!!! :p

:hihi: Sorry, but I just couldn't pass that one up! Or this: The "Adult" industry has been at the Multi-Billion $$ level for many yrs now in America. Just because everybody pretends they don't participate: Doesn't mean a thing! I don't recall the exact figures, but like 80% is Mail Order--Now Online.

We might get a lot of plants in our "Little Boxes" delivered to our door--but what are Your neighbors getting? And Your Kids School Teacher, The County Commissioner, City Planner, The Principle, Police Chief, Fire Chief--the list just goes on--Yeah, and the Preacher down the street too! Lots of Folks "Can't" walk into the back of the local video rental place or the local "Adult" shop, but shop they do--Online. Many "Fine, Upstanding Pillars-of-the-Community".

No Shame here. I think its for Grown-ups--and has it place. I'm not as Alone as many like to Think! :proud: The Numbers don't Lie......:eek:

Oh, did I mention that I'm at about 1TB+ here..........:icon_mrgr

Pron has been a part of the Internet for a long time. I believe it is still one of the top $$$ net based industries. People get fired, arrested, divorced over it regularly. We have had a couple people fired from my department over it. One guy was doing admin work on his porn site from the office. What a fool.
When I first started surfing the net many years ago I got into it but after a while you've seen one you've seen 'em all kinda set in for me and I got over net pron. If you searched my hd's you would prolly find a clip or two but that's about it.
How much free space of the 1tb plus do oyu have?

My comp has about 250 GB. It's still only about 1/2 full, so I haven't run into the need to buy more (yet). I back up some stuff on DVD-R's though.

Man, you guys just reminded me of my first (extreme old-skool alert) computer that had a 200MB harddrive, 2 MB RAM, Intel 33SX (33 MHz). The video card was a Trident 512 KB card. Anything over about 1 or 2 MB was looked at as unnecessary. Of course, that was back in '94. It's amazing how fast technology changes. In all fairness, that comp was just mediocre back then. Most of my friends at college were sporting 66 MHz beasts! lol
I was able to configure the memory allocation to run Doom though. That took a little tinkering. The HD was basically just big enough to store Windows 3.11, MS Word, Doom and not much else! :p

it's also going to have over 2TB externally attached and traded around our office. and it's a personal desktop machine not a server!
