    Never reinstall XP again, New professional repair tool. Keeps data and
    applications in-tact.

    Reimage is an on-line tool that automates PC maintenance and repairs
    so that any PC will run like new, everyday.

    Reimage uses proprietary technology that identifies and executes a
    repair.

    Reimage has repaired more than 200,000 XP based computers with a
    satisfied repair rate in excess of 90%.

    The only technology that will replace registry cleaners and anti
    viruses.

    You can repair a XP computer for free in many cases using a distro
    like Puppy Linux that will run completely from the CD and can read and
    write the NTFS disks. The best case is to use "gparted" to image the
    drive when you first get it working and keep that version. From then
    on, you have a backup that you can use if all else fails.

    You can avoid repairing the XP by upgrading to a modern OS that
    doesn't mess its self up at the drop of a hat. Up until SuSE-11 I
    would have suggested SuSE but they went to KDE 4 which is harder to
    use than KDE-3 so these days I'd say try a different one.
     

  3. A case of linuxopathia: linuxopaths can't help preaching Linux and
    cursing Microsoft whenever they notice any mentioning of Windows. The
    linuxopathic obsession can be so strong, that some patients are reacting
    even on the spam messages.

    Each time Linux saves Windoze's fragile butt
    a penguin gets an anchovie.
    gparted==GNU Partition Editor
    A Quick Look... by Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier

    With a gratis and libre bootable Linux CD/thumbdrive,
    Windoze users can avoid (payware) Partition Magic
    and (payware) Norton Ghost.
    With deference to Vladimir, how can people resist crowing
    when they have an OS that doesn't constantly crap itself?
    Linus Torvalds quit using Fedora
    because they did the same stupid thing.

    The KDE Team faced a chicken-and-egg thing.
    They were in a bind: Until they made a formal release of v4,
    app developers would continue to ignore v4.
    KDE chose to release the Will-Eat-Your-Children KDE 4.0
    followed by the Will-Still-Eat-Your-Children KDE 4.1.

    Some incredibly stupid distro teams disregarded the warnings
    that despite the numbering scheme **these are BETA versions**
    and those bozos chose to replace KDE 3.5 with KDE 4.0/4.1.

    KDE has released the finally-ready-for-prime-time KDE 4.2.
    So, since January 27, 2009,
    sudo apt-get update
    will put the badness of the false start behind you.

    Windoze users: KDE has even been ported to Windoze.

    You seem to have missed the main point of my posting. I explained
    that you can repair an XP system for free.

    Version 4 was being ignored for a fairly good reason. Version 3 did
    everything needed and had few bugs. This meant that any change either
    was to make it do something unwanted, quit doing something wanted, or
    add a bug. This sounds to me like a good reason not to change.

    That is good news.

    There is no reason to give money to spammers.
    For eons, Free Software has had solutions
    to back up and restore partitions:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp...zz-zz+qq-qq+*-*-*-*-*-understand-sparse-files
    (Note the date.)
    That one is the Solaris variant, but there is a GPL'd version:
    http://google.com/search?q=Linux+dump-command-*+filesystems&num=100

    Linux tools can even recover a *damaged* filesystem:

    http://google.com/search?q=cache:E9...+Bezroukov+valid+trying.for.ages&strip=1#News
    (Scroll down to Feb 17, 2007.)

    In the 21st Century (outside of VERY vertical markets),
    there is almost never a need to pay for software.
    In this case, bootable Linux CDs are freely available.

  10. Idiot! What the jokester retard means by "repair" is "remove".

    Even if a commercial product you buy 'damages something' your fucking
    recourse for lost data is nil.
     

  11. Give it up, you fucking 'PostTard'.

    Even when I upgrade my MB/CPU?

  13. MooseFET

    No, your new MB has to run with Vista because there is no XP driver
    for the type of hard disk chip it uses. None of your programs from
    XP, however, will run under Vista so you have to upgrade them to the
    new Vista version. Unfortunately for some reason, the new version
    can't read all of the files made with the older versions. You can buy
    a conversion program to fix this, but that won't install because the
    hard disk isn't big enough.
     
  14. More 100% totally retarded horseshit.

    Perhaps a little overstated, but I know the feeling.

    Memo to whoever makes these decisions - PCI-Ex and SATA are good enough.
    Please don't change these interfaces again.

    Someone once said that about MFM hard drives and Hercules graphics
    arrays passed through an ISA bus.

    Are you sure you want to jump on this bozo bus, Bozo?

    Besides the newest thing is SAS, not SATA.
     
  17. Sylvia Else

    Sylvia Else Guest

    At some point, the bus can carry data representing images faster than
    the human eye can perceive it. I'd argue that that point has been
    reached. While there may be a commercial incentive for increasing the
    numbers, it's far from clear that there's an actual benefit.
    Seems to be aimed at a different market.

    A larger array size, which is what has been advancing, not refresh
    rate, carries with it a higher bit rate requisite.

    It has nothing to do with the speed of the eye. The frame rate has
    already been optimally reached. Faster cards and busses are needed to
    pass that larger amounts of data. An image is one thing, but 3-D
    computer rendered information is very processor, memory, graphics card
    GPU and bus intensive. That will never plateau any time soon. We will
    not stop until we get photo realistic quality on full motion video with
    minimal if any artifacts.

    SAS is aimed at those that want data fast and reliable. So there are
    plenty of markets for it. In other words, no different than SATA was
    when it emerged. What planet are you living on?

    No. What is clear is that you really have no clue about it, but are
    good enough at fashioning a sentence to make yourself look intelligent.
    The very content of your remarks gives you away. You appear to have no
    clue as to what may or may not have any further benefit.

    Ye gods - not one, but two ad-hominem replies. I must have you really
    worried.
