Re: Economic Stimulus... any big plans?

I have not definite plans for my money. I will probably save most of it to cover the greatly increasing cost of filling my car up :)

Re: Don't buy GFX from ebay

Maybe you should change the title to "buy GFX" since you just got a better card than what you bid. So basically you got your money back, got to keep the card and exchange it for a newer card for only $10 :) I guess that shows that BFG is a good brand of video card to buy....

I like that you can create a clean install image in a hidden partition and then setup the True Image boot option. If something that you install hoses y...

Re: Free CD burning software?

I use imageburn also, but I mainly use it for burning CD images (iso's, etc...). The nice thing about imageburn is that you can copy it to a usb memory stick and run it from there also.

Re: Seph's Large List Of Freeware

I see that you added my post for PC Tools Firewall, but did you see my other post about Comodo :)

I usually use Comodo but it is not Vista compatible yet. I tried the PC Tools Firewall yesterday and had to remove it because whenever I inserted a Sprint aircard, it would lock the computer up....

Re: All About Free Software ~Seph Style~

I think that there should be a sticky post with these free apps because there is no sticky post telling about free security software (ie: AV, Firewall, etc...).

Here is another free Firewall:

PC Tools Firewall Plus - this one is Vista and 2003 compatible

I have one of these new - still in the box. So, I cannot tell you how well/not it works :)

CDBurnerXP 4 is out now and it is now compatible with Vista. I think it is one of the better free cd burning apps out there.
