  1. Joe, this thread is site feedback directly to site staff. Tell me what game you are having issues with and I'll try and move this thread someplace more useful.
  2. Paul, there is a thread in the help/feedback section and also an announcement. We have a potential issue with the server's hard drive. I have moved the database data files off of the suspect drive to prove the theory to our hosting company.
  3. I think I've taken this before...I got somewhere in the 90s - Nerd god. I'll have to retake it to make sure. EDIT: This one doesn't even have that rank! Anyway, 44.77% / Major Geek

  5. scvhost != svchost Made the same mistake myself once or twice.
  6. Sounds like you've got a complicated problem and reinstalling is probably easiest, as per MTV2's suggestion. However, svchost.exe is not necessarily a trojan. It is a popular name for trojans because it is a necessary and omnipresent process on all Windows XP/2000/NT systems. So don't just go killing off svchost.exe without a good reason (like it's not running from a system directory, or an antivirus product flags it). Matt
  7. Given many water guns can be easily filled with acids, I'd think that as a reasonable security threat. A t-shirt on the other hand, come on. Is the wearer going to offend the pilot into letting him in the cabin? Maybe he'll just offend passengers until the pilot agrees to hand over the controls.
  8. Couldn't they have just installed a remote kill switch?
  9. It's a problem with some javascript on whatever page you're getting it on. I don't know if you can disable the warning. See if other people in that forum found a solution. Matt
  10. I wish I could show some of the cool Xgl effects, but a jpeg can only handle so much. jmac - the second desktop you posted, what window manager is that and where'd you find those sweet widgets? I was thinking recently that I might find a replacement for conky.
  11. Yes, I know exactly what a master boot record is, jmac. Typically, grub installs stage 1 of the boot loading mechanism in the MBR. Grub misconfiguration or misuse is the easiest way to cause these symptoms, at least in my experience. To fix it requires no reinstallation - just a livecd - if this is the case. Now, if grub is installed differently in Ubuntu than the default (entirely in one primary partition), then it should just be marked active (bootable). If your partition table is totally messed, try the testdisk tool I recommended above. Btw, what distro's do you all run? I run gentoo stage-1 installs on all my machines here (laptop + amd64 + older x86), although I'm thinking of running freebsd on the x86 when I get a new hard drive for it.
  12. Can you mount /boot from a livecd? If not and fsck isn't doing for you, you could try recovering using a tool like testdisk.
  13. I agree - sounds like the boot loader. Just try reinstalling grub!
