Stupid weekend

Well I left friday to a freinds house with a pretty much clean install of windows, with all driver and programs installed that I wanted, but My little sisters got onto my computer while I was gone. Here is the spy bot scan results. 188 invalid entries. I am in the imddle of formating and backing up all of my files because of multipl "xxx" toolbars and programs that come back every time I shut down. Needless to say I am now passwording all of my siblings off.

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

Yeah I have all sorts of passwords now  :bowdown: windows2000
anyways the reason why it took me so long to get my computer up and running was that I found a 20gig ibm hard drive in my case, never been opened, bought for less then 100 bucks. found out ti was partitioned in linux, that took me about 2 hours to figure out. So I switched out my hard drives, put the on in my little brothers computer and backed everything up. After I figured out it was a linux partition, it only took me 45mins to re-do everything. I have to install windows 98, load up all 2000 drivers and install 2000, but I also got my brand new 20gig hard drive. So I am not as pissed as I was before.

just a quick pic of my computer set up. The computer on the left is mine. Screaming along at 300mhz with a 52X cdrom and 20gig hard drive and 96 megs of ram, and surround sound.also running windows 2000. The computer to the right of mine is sitting on a 16 port hub, with infared and t1/t3 abilities. That computer is 500mhz with dvdplayer and 8x burner nothing really special.

Just make it so people don't know HOW to use the computer...problem solved. The easiest way is just a different OS but can be done in windows too :p

Then again, 10+ character passwords using numbers, letters, and special characters are hard to crack too :grinno:

I have 3 gigs of my new partition formatted for linux, and I have like 7 linux disks and a bootable linux operating system called knopix, just waiting for me to get bored someday. as a matter of fact, I had to format this hard drive using the linux install disk. also my new password is 15 characters long.

I still favor Gentoo over other distributions, but hate having to compile everything on my machine when it installs.

I never realized how easy it was to "break" into Windows until I had to crack my brother's computer after he forgot his password. Initially, I used a program that uploaded the encrypted password data to an online server and cracked it in about 4 hours. Before the 4 hours was up, I used another program that used a bootable Linux floppy to reset/change the password to whatever I wanted. I guess most of y'all know about this, but it blew my mind.
