    What happened to our news portal page?

    What happened to our front page with the news? Now it takes me to a listing of all the forums. Also, the "The Helper News" page is down, despite being linked in the side navigation.

    Google Calendar screwing with all-day events?

    Hello, so I've made many all day events, and Google Calendar is constantly messing them up. For example, I made an all-day event this Thursday, which somehow got moved to 10pm-10pm (always this exact time) on Wednesday (always the day before). I have 2 other events that had this same problem...

    Back button in Gmail causes Google Chrome to crash

    Hello, I usually use Chrome for my normal browsing, and I found a problem that happens all the time in Chrome. Whenever I open up a message in Gmail, use the back button, and try to open up a different message, Google Chrome crashes to the "Aw, Snap!" page. It is quite often, but I can only...

    What is this cool Desktop Mod?

    Hey guys, I found this picture somewhere (I can't really remember), but I wish I knew what mod it is that has the time, temp, etc. listed like it does in this image: Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have the background separately. :)

    Ubuntu - No gnome-panels, no right-click, no internet, no hotkeys

    Hey guys, I've been using Ubuntu (Maverick 10.10) on my desktop (ATI Radeon 5830) for about 3 weeks now, but all of a sudden I am unable to even use my computer. As soon as I start up, I see my desktop, with icons, but I don't see any gnome-panels, and I'm unable to get any options if I...

    Trying Ubuntu

    I've had Ubuntu dual-booted on my desktop and laptop for a couple months or so (longer for just my laptop), but for some reason I've been more inclined to choose Windows 7 over Ubuntu each time. In order to try and actually use linux (since I've wanted to for so long), I'm going to try coming...

    It's about time I post some

    Hey guys, I haven't really been active in posting some of my music lately. Mostly, it's because I've been trying to get some more work done on The Burning Awesome (the band I'm in, we've almost finished the first album). It's a bit unfair to you guys, so I'll post my recent compositions from...

    Google Scribe

    Google now has auto-complete for your every-day speech. It's pretty neat just how well it can predict what you're going to say. I thought it was pretty funny that it figured out "how much wood would a woodchuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood." from the...

    LaTeX parser?

    Hey guys. I used to use Google Docs in order to take my math notes, as they had the built in equation editor. Because I used to take so many notes, I became basically fluent in the language they use, which I found to be LaTeX. However, coming back to college, I tried to use the equation...

    TheHelper rendering problem, everything white

    Here's a picture to show you what I'm talking about: I'm basically having a problem with the way TH is being rendered in Chrome (and I've tried regular chrome, along with the Beta of Chrome to no avail). Firefox does not have this problem, and I've disabled Adblock on TH. Any ideas on...

    [Image Heavy] Post a background!

    Related to the Post your desktop! thread, I decided it might be nicer to have a thread dedicated to adding desktop backgrounds, so that people can find some for themselves. Rules: Since this is an image heavy thread, try not to post too many backgrounds in a single post. Let's say around...

    Solid Composer

    Hello, musicians and friends! I happen to have a friend who is a programmer as well as a musician. If you know me, you know that I sometimes enter into composition competitions (known as "music-off's" or "compo's"). Previously, myself along with a few friends used to enter into these...

    Getting random BSODs for the past few months

    So I recently (within the last 4 months) upgraded my computer, getting a new mobo, processor, RAM, and Graphics card. Originally I was having problems with random shutdowns (occasionally being a BSOD), which I thought to be related to overheating problems (as the processor was getting within...

    Preview Features of the Editor

    Hey guys, I've been a little quiet about it, but I've had a beta key for a while. I haven't really gotten into the game itself (but then again I never was all that great at RTS games), but I've been having a bit of fun exploring the editor. There are a few things that seem to be not fully...
