With the out of band update that Microsoft put out a couple of weeks ago ( http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/ms08-067.mspx ), its important that the machines be updated. Microsoft is very concerned about this problem, so much so they decided to send this out without their usual dela...

The GX270s were bad machines. Dell sent out Maxtor hard drives that failed a lot and of course, the mentioned capacitors. The GX280s have a heat sync issue that causes the computers to operate loudly. Its a shame, they are decent machines otherwise.

Dell has fixed these issues with the GX755 models.

One thing you can try if you don't have a lot of memory, you can remove the spooling on the computer and let the printer handle it. Go to START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS.. Right click on the printer and hit properties. Go to the advanced tab and select PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER and hit okay. This will...

I would start by breaking the jobs down to smaller pieces. It might be too much for that little printer. I don't know the software you are using, but it usually works for other big formats like PDF.

Yeah, that is good for most. I usually hide drives and take away their right to see their C drive for the stubburn ones. I have even taken away the shell a time or two back in the day. Its not popular. :D

[color=black][font=Arial] I see this is an old thread, but these types of things should always be re-visted. About a year ago, I shored up my backups to the point where they are pretty reliable for those who need a file restored, especially ones that are hit with the backup at night. While I don...

When I was on call, I used to take my Blackberry 8700C into the block. One time, during the sacrament, I heard the tell tale sounds of a Blackberry chattering into a mic, I quickly took my battery out.. Needless to say, I felt bad that I disrupted sacrament. No one other then Blackberry people woul...

In one of my previous wards, our Bishop was concerned about a Yahoo group that we (Elders) started (for a reason I don't remember), to help with our home teaching and missionary work. He said that there was policies against this, even though we never named anyone (but we knew who/what we were talkin...

I just found this board and I am bummed out that I missed the Webinar. I have almost 13 years in I.T. and have been looking for a way to put my talents to use in the church. I have used my talents as a service (ie. Pro Bono) to other churches, it would be fantastic to help the church in some way. I ...
