LOL Yeah that was wierd where'd she go?
I saw it too.
Whoever was in charge of editing the footage did "something" to sort of, shorten the video's time. If you look REALLY closely at the girl sitting there to the right when it happens, the girl's face changes a bit so yea, editing is involved here
But yea, you have to be careful with EVERYTHING that you get. I have a lot of anti-virus crap on here to keep me safe but, you have to be responsible for making sure that all of the things that you get are virus free and stuff.
Yeah I see what you mean, well spotted
Good call, hackers will always be around, so all you can do is be cautious like you just said. I've been screwed over a few times and it's not fun, especially when you loose all of your important files
Many years ago, I had a SERIOUS error on my old pc that somehow required it to have Xp installed again. It was weird. I had no idea how it happened. Anyways, a friend of a friend tried to help me out but I lost ALL of my music. Even though I gained most of it back, it did suck.
I suggest getting something like this. I know that I will.
Seagate Technology - FreeAgent™ Pro
That way everything can be kept in there safe as long as you know how to handle it gently
Damn, I bet that annoyed the hell out of you? Loosing things you have created yourself is one of the worst things, like photos, documents etc, right pain in the ass. It makes you wonder why people do it? They don't know for definite that they have caused you any particular grief so how can they get a kick out of it?
That drive looks pretty cool actually, I've been contemplating what would happen if my MP3 drive went down, I think I'd probably cry for the best part, keeping it all online does sound cool but I wonder how long it would take to upload 140gb...
Cool stuff none the less!
Yea. I was REALLY upset about it all. I learned my lesson though. Another friend of mine could have helped me but it would have taken a few days because he was like, busy and stuff, girlfriend and all.
I have been thinking about a new pc altogether for recording/music. I would not even have the internet on it, just music, recording programs and all but, it would be a lot more money. Eh, I will see how it all goes.
I went with Seagate instead of Western Digital because of people who have had WD and they have said that it sucks. Plus, the name Seagate is a lot cooler
The guy that tried to help me was being honest, you know? it's just that somehow along the way, lines got crossed and well, I may have dome something wrong so it is totally not his fault. I have no idea where the guy is. This was like, 4-5 years ago.
Get that drive!!!
I got you a link for checking out some drives. Me, I would go for like, a 500gb to a 750 or so.

That sounds like a good idea about keeping a PC separate for music creation, that way if someone does hack you they aren't going to get to your really important documents. By the way, I'm not sure if you have looked into VM software at all, but VMWare have some really cool features, like using your audio / video hardware within the VM which I think is excellent, it's also a good way of keeping everything separate and also means that you can backup your entire PC to just 1 file per virtual hard drive. Saves on computer equipment too, although I've never used a VM for creating music so I have no idea what it's like, but if it's anything like developing software it could be worth a try. You can even download a demo of VMWare.

Cheers for the link to that drive, I'm giving that some serious thought as one of my hard drives is currently not even screwed down, it's just kind of flapping about as I managed to break part of it when I went to put it in... don't ask! At least I didn't blow my pc up though, which I've also done before :LMAO:

The drive is a SATA, but the drive power cable is a IDE so that does not transfer power to the drive so opening up picture files is slow.
I use windows alot, but vista is a huge disgrace... i mean come on, barely any old hardware works with it, it has bugs and problems... the new SP might fix it but I doubt it (heard the kernel was completely rewritten)... and windows 7 is supposed to be out 2010 - 2011? Plus XP is stable since day one so why the sudden need for something new and have something even newer just around the corner???
Well I don't know what to say. I had a friend run the pre release beta for months and never had an issues. I myself barely came across any myself and the majority of problems were from my own cause (tinkering around, seeing what if and how to fix it).
I do appologize, I should have said that XP has become really stable as time went on. I don't know, maybe I was just lucky and probably even more so that I was a regular joe every day user. I guess had it been a company or something of the sort, then things would look different. Who knows.
I have to disagree with you. If it wasn't for Microsoft pushing new OSes, there wouldn't be nearly as many problems. Manufactures wouldn't have to rush out to get new and optimized drivers. There are reasons why they were slow in doing so.
Vista was under lock and key, and they were tight lipped about it releasing very little source code or information for manufacturers to be able to redesign / create new drivers for old and new hardware. Only a select few knew the details of Vista and even that was very minor information that they got.
I mean honestly, look at the specs for XP and Vista. Both very bloated and over kill and required hoards amounts of system resources and processing power to run smoothly. Sure you could run it on minimum specs, but thats like throwing a ford engine into a ferrari... looks nice on the outside but thats about it.
Personally, I blame both Microsoft and Hardware Manufacturers for pushing out new things that are well... really that necessary? Look at all the buzz words that they have come up with? 64bit, dual core, quad core, etc.
AMD made a craze for their AMD64 bit processors and they pushed it out since everyone would highly benefit from it. Where were all the 64bit software applications that would actually use it at that point? Sure, maybe in the high end video/sound processing/creation industry, but what about for the regular every day joe user?
Windows XP 64bit was not a true 64bit OS. As far as I know, Vista was the very first true 64bit OS. There wasnt and I think there still isn't much software that is optimized and acutally uses it for the every day user (again maybe for the high end).
No one benefited from it. AMD was the only one that benefited from it since they created a demand for it and made a profit on it by moving away from their 32bit line. Even some of the hardware available to an every day user did not use the full 64 bits. To me that's an honest waste.
I am very happy with XP Pro, and I have no reason to switch to Vista anytime soon, let alone to their new OS whenever it is actually released. That's just my own case. Only reason I would have to install or even use Vista is in order to familiarize myself with it and be able to support it if it happens then I get out into industry and the company I am working for actually uses it (which if you look some companies run or have their own proprietary software tailored to their own needs that only works on older versions of windows).
sorry this has gone off topic.
I really had to pay extra close attention to actually notice the women in the window being erased / disapearing. That was pretty funny. The things that people tend to miss or some actually catch.
