    What's Your Favorite Editor?

    (I'm making a new thread, the old one is nearly a year old.) Title says it. IDEs and / or editors. I'm currently using a mixture of Notepad++ (until my current project is done) and vim, and I'm transitioning over to vim fully. For Notepad++, I'm using the Monokai theme, with only the...

    Mouse Double-clicking on Right Click

    For the past few days, my mouse has been double-clicking whenever I right click. At first, it wasn't a huge issue, but now it's getting really annoying, and I'd like to fix it if possible. If it matter at all, it only seems to be happening in games (Minecraft and World of Warcraft. I haven't...

    Need New Video Card

    I need a AGP x4/x8 video card that is capable of playing some relatively modern games (World of Warcraft, Starcraft II, Portal 2, etc.). My goal budget is as-cheap-as-possible, without it being completely terrible, though I'd like to stay under $60. Any recommendations (as well as a good...

    FTP Server on Ubuntu?

    Edit 4: Okay! How can I add a user to vsftpd, make them able to access their home directory, and /var/www, and give them full permissions for those folders? Running chown -R username directory seems to break PHP, so that doesn't work. OS is Ubuntu 10.10 SE, running a LAMP stack, OpenSSH, and...

    JSON -> PHP Converter-thingy.

    Graphics card causing PC to not boot

    When my current card decided to die on me, I went and grabbed an older card I had lying around to use until I could afford a new one. When I install this new card though, the boot-up fails completely. It just resets itself just about when it gets to the Windows (XP) loading screen. Now, I...

    How can I tell if my PCI Express x16 port is a 2.0 port?

    How can I tell if it's 2.0? I know I have the port, just not what version it is. Getting ready to buy a new graphics card, and just wanted to make sure I got the right one. :D

    Configuring a Server?

    I'm looking to create a local server now that my computer is running properly. I've decided to do this on a VM (since I can't really run two operating systems at once), and with that comes resource limitations, so I'm looking for a lightweight, but powerful distro of Linux (GUI isn't needed...

    Games Constantly Crashing

    Recently games have been crashing repeatedly on my computer, and I have no idea why. The only thing I've been able to find out is that it's not specific to a single game. It's all of them. I've tired every game I have access to; Warcraft III, World of Warcraft, Minecraft, Vindictus, Guild...

    Buying RAM, Need Opinions.

    I've been looking around New Egg, and found this card, but I'm not entirely sure if it's better than what I have. All I know about what I have now is that it's DDR2, it's clocked at 333MHz (300MHz actual, according to CPU-Z), and is in the amount of 1GB. Could anyone tell me if this is...

    Windows refuses to boot.

    Whenever I turn on my desktop, I get a "Windows did not load successfully", and then I get the options to boot into various "Safe Modes", as well as start Windows normally. I'd normally boot into Windows normally, and see if the errors continue, but when it does, it just reboots the computer...

    Completely Replacing In-game Systems?

    I've been thinking of way to completely replace-and-rebuild the in-game systems (such as HP, mana, gold, combat, etc.), but I can't seem to actually figure out how. Let's say, for example, I have the following: struct hero[10] // Let's just say we'll only use ten instances... real mana...

    Getting Started With C#?

    I'm thinking about getting into C#, but I'm not exactly sure where to start. I know a little bit of C/C++ already, as well as the general concept behind C# (I've read up on the syntax, and am familiar with most of it.). Any suggestions on where to go next? :D (PS: VS 2008.)
