  1. Must have been urgent then I'll find some paint to watch drying before I respond to the next one. Ian.
  2. There are some photographs, taken by my wife and granddaughter, using one of these cameras HERE Cheers Ian.
  3. This http://www.isobuster.com/ may work. There is a paid for and a freeware version. Cheers Ian.
  4. Copied from another site: "Hi - I just got this working on IE8-b2. IE8 seems to be calling out there is a security threat, so you need to temporarily lower the security and install. After uninstalling all Adobe add-ins, goto Tools->InternetOptions->Security -- Following pull the 'Security level for this zone' down as far as you can. Following, install Flash, etc. Then reset the security to the default level." Not tried it myself though (IE8). Cheers Ian.

    Oidhche mhath Danny. R.I.P. Ian.
  6. Irfanview may do it as well: http://www.irfanview.com/ Cheers Ian.
  7. Hi Can you download and run "Hijack This" and "StartupList" from here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/programs.php and then post the results of each? Cheers Ian.
  8. Ken What's the problem with firewire on the Sony Cam? Cheers Ian.
  9. Ken Here you go: http://www.syschat.com/dual-boot-vista-xp-...ready-1946.html Or, my opinion only, bin Vista until MS have got their act together. Cheers Ian.
  10. Another question, sorry. Are any of your drives Lightscribe and/or Labelflash drives? Cheers Ian.
  11. Fred So when you start the machine, you see the pointer? But when you move it (in any direction) it disappears? Does it reappear? What graphics driver do you have? And was the machine originally supplied with Vista, or XP? Cheers Ian.
  12. Thanks Den You can blank that post now (I've copied it); it has serial numbers on it. I'll have a closer read tomorrow. DVD/CD writers use different lasers for writing to DVD and CD, but I consider it unlikely that both would give up the ghost at the same time. However, have you a USB writer that you could try? I am not overly familiar with the AVCHD video format; it's a proprietory format used by Sony and Panasonic. Having rooted a bit, I (personally) would bin Architect. In fact, I would remove all burning/video editing software from the PC, and reinstall one at a time, testing each one as you go. Then have a read of this (or have a read of this first): http://www.jakeludington.com/camcorder/200...camcorders.html A quote from there reads "the lousy software Sony ships". Cheers Ian.
  13. Nicked from http://www.setileague.org/general/drake.htm Is there a way to estimate the number of technologically advanced civilizations that might exist in our Galaxy? While working at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia, Dr. Frank Drake conceived a means to mathematically estimate the number of worlds that might harbor beings with technology sufficient to communicate across the vast gulfs of interstellar space. The Drake Equation, as it came to be known, was formulated in 1961 and is generally accepted by the scientific community. N = R* fp ne fl fi fc L where, N = The number of communicative civilizations R* = The rate of formation of suitable stars (stars such as our Sun) fp = The fraction of those stars with planets. (Current evidence indicates that planetary systems may be common for stars like the Sun.) ne = The number of Earth-like worlds per planetary system fl = The fraction of those Earth-like planets where life actually develops fi = The fraction of life sites where intelligence develops fc = The fraction of communicative planets (those on which electromagnetic communications technology develops) L = The "lifetime" of communicating civilizations Frank Drake's own current solution to the Drake Equation estimates 10,000 communicative civilizations in the Milky Way. Dr. Drake, who serves on the SETI League's advisory board, has personally endorsed SETI's planned all-sky survey. Cheers Ian.
  14. Have you checked all the settings under Control Panel>Mouse? Cheers Ian.
  15. Hi Are you using IE7? If so, with IE7 open, go to File>Import and Export>Next>Export Favorites. Re your DVD drive problem. Apparently this is sometimes caused by Sony CD Architect, OR an ASPI layer problem, though in this case I doubt it. You could remove the drive(s) using Device Manager, and let Windoze detect them again on startup. How do you create your DVD's? Do you have two (or more) burning applications installed? Could you download and run this http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html and PM me the result? Cheers Ian.
