  1. Am I the only one on AN that has no sympathy for the waste of space named 'George Best' ? Everyone I have spoken to about him in the last month or so agree it's all self inflicted & have no time for him whatsoever. Would the media be so interested in any other chronic alcoholic who p*ssed his own career up the wall ?? Shame the liver was wasted on someone so self destructive. GOOD RIDDANCE I SAY
  2. I didn't notice that this thread was titled 'Tributes to George Best only please'
  3. [Edited - not the time or place (thread) to slag him off.... ] Oh dear - censorship ? Where is the right place then ? Perhaps I should start another thread ?
  4. I recently setup an online shop for a client of mine (I am a web designer/developer by trade): http://www.eurocardplayer.net To accept payment via debit or credit card you will need an online PSP (Payment Service Provider). The most commonly used & popular is WorldPay, but there are many alternatives all depending on what service you need & how professional you want your website to look. As previously mentioned PayPal now allow people to make purchases without having a paypal account - this can though be long & drawn out waiting for some methods of payment such as 'e-ch
  5. I have an Epson Perfection 2480 that scans negatives. It's all automated & will produce a 'normal' image to your Photo editing software, no need to mess about. I bought the scanner specifically because of this feature & am very very pleased with it ...

  7. I was a very happy person. My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me...It was her beautiful younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight mini-skirts, and generally was braless. She would regularly bend down when she was near me, and I always got more than a pleasant view of her private parts. It had to be deliberate. She never did it when she was near anyone else. One day her "little" sister called and asked me to come over to check the

  10. That's rather a sweeping assumption that anyone using a P2P network is going to be downloading copyrighted material. Since when ? Perhaps you're not aware that it is perfectly legal to make backup copies of any digital media for your own use the same way you would make a tape recording of a vinyl LP you can make a duplicate copy of a CD or DVD. It becomes illegal if you then try & supply that material to a third party without a distribution license, be it one copy or one thousand copies.
  11. Check your settings in your browser - it's more than likely that either your browser isn't checking for a new version of the page each time the page is loaded or that your ISP is caching pages I don't use Firefox so I wouldn't know where these settings are - have you tried it in IE as well ?
  12. In order to have access to the edonkey network you have to connect to an edonkey server - you cannot connect via a third party proxy server. In fact edonkey needs direct access to a specific port, if this is refused you will get what is called a 'LowID' which will restrict your access to shared files from other users across the network. You can change your port settings in options in case your ISP is being naughty & blocking certain ports
  13. Not true - by the very nature of how Edonkey works you are sharing the file as soon as you have the first part of it. Edonkey breaks a file down into multiple parts (a bit like WinRAR splits files into parts for you) & it's these parts you download from each individual user, you cannot just 'leach' from the edonkey network. So you ARE sharing the file as soon as you actively start downloading it. Any P2P program does not mean you HAVE to download copyrighted material. Many legitimate 'shareware' files are freely & legally available on P2P networks, in fact some download websites li
  14. As Si says Emule is by far the better ED2K client. Personally I use Emule Plus http://emuleplus.info/ The beauty of emule/e-donkey is that it doesn't rely on one server (like SoulSeek) & can therefore not 'be shutdown' It's by far the most established P2P network & is great for archive files as well as new ones. Also try some of these websites: http://www.fileheaven.org/forum/ http://forum.fu<delete>cktheinter.net/index.php http://www.p2ptv.co.uk/main_index.html I've been using E-donkey/emule for years, so if you need any further help, feel free to reply

  18. Because a dynamic IP address is assigned to each individual user when you dial in, generally as a 50:1 ratio. This means that IP addresses are assigned as you log on i.e.; there are 50 available IP addresses available on 1 switch & they are served out in order of 1st come 1st served. Therefore it is less intensive on the server to allocate IP addresses ad-hoc Static IP addresses are reserved specifically for you & are only assigned to you each time you dial in. Dynamic IP servers only need 100 IP addresses for 100 customers connected at that time. Static IP addresses may ne
