Is It Alive?
Hey all, just found out about this community from randomly browsing Wikifur, and I was wondering if it still gets activity? I'm bringing my new web/email server online this weekend, which runs Windows 2003 (converting all my websites and such from a Linux-based shared hosting provider and going co-lo, woo!), and I thought it might be handy to be a member of a group like this (if anyone reads it).

Something that came to mind
When you think about it, many of the major operating systems out there (and most of the minor operating systems) have had anthros as their mascots. Minux? Raccoon. AROS? Cat (drawn by Eric Schwartz, no less). BSD? Platypus. Linux? Penguin. Mac OS? The Claris dogcow is still the unofficial logo, and most variations have an animal name (Panther. Jaguar. Tiger.).
Windows, however, has suffered in reputation ever since they replaced their mascot -- the Microsoft Bear -- with the Butterfly (not so furry), and finally the Flying Window Disc Thingie (not furry at all).

anyone need a PC?
I've got a midsize tower with a AMD Athlon XP 2200+, 512MB ram, 80GB Hard Drive, DVD, and Windows XP Pro SP2 loaded with COA.
pictures will be available upon request.

Keyboard and sound
Hi there all, I’m new here.
I have a little problem with my sound. I’ve written an entry about it in my journal, but for your convenience, I’ll copy it here.
This is getting mildly annoying. That is, annoying as hell.
Whenever I type (or do something like holding the Ctrl key depressed), the sound will get choppy, regardless of that I’m using WaveOut output or DirectSound — the only thing that doesn’t jitter is Foobar2000’s Kernel playback.
I’m using a Windows XP Professional, and have a MSI K7N2 motherboard, which uses an nVidia nForce2 MCP-T sound controller. My keyboard is a PS/2 keyboard.
You could also read the comments to the original entry for more information. Thanks in advance!

Hi folks: Thought I'd post here, since I have a fur print example, and I'm sure , you all wouldn't throw a gasket :)
I've got a MicroTek legal size (14" long) scanner. It's great for normal copies, but I have serious problems scanning light art.
This is the first scan, came out acceptable, but still light: http://sdelaforge.livejournal.com/197596.html
This picture: http://sdelaforge.livejournal.com/198708.html
is the 2nd stage, and it came out a lot darker, and 'dirty' than the real picture is.
Does anyone know how to calibrate scanners so they scan light stuff? I see a lot of artist scan well, and I'm still doing crap. So any advice you can offer, would be appreciated.
If it matters, the pencils is a 6h, and 5h. The blending is done with a blending stick. Current Mood: aggravated

Attention All GMail Users in the UK!
Please go visit and read http://mail.google.com/mail/help/intl/en-GB/googlemail.html
Following a legal battle in the UK over the name 'GMail
', Google have announced that they are as a precaution, from October the 18th, all new GMail
accounts created will carry a @googlemail.com
Likewise all branding and server names have changed to the GoogleMail
For now, all users with an @gmail.com
address are safe, your mail will reach you. However Google at this time can't say for sure that the address is 'safe'. They are holding talks still with the other trademark holders to try and resolve this matter. If Gmail
users wish, they can start using too the GoogleMail
name and address. Old accounts at this time will work with both.
Also finally. please note that if you use POP3 and access your GMail
account with a mail client, such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You will need to update your client's connection settings to use GoogleMail
server addresses instead of GMail
ones. Simply replace all uses of the word GMail
in both the POP3, SMTP and account name fields.
Finally, all GMail
users outside the UK are not effected.
Cross posted on.. a lot of places to ensure message propagates. Apologies. Current Mood: anxious

Just to get things started, I'll start with a question of my own: is it possible to find out which process has a certain file or directory opened? I sometimes run into situations where I want to delete an object but can't, most likely because there's still an open file descriptor attached to it, but I can't figure out which process might be at fault.
I know Unix has an lsof
command for this. What about windows? Is it possible to find out, or is the almighty reboot the only viable option? Current Mood: inquisitive
