Texas PC Repair Now Requires PI License

by Brian Heater in PC Magazine of 30 June 2008

From its Texas Rangers to its enthusiastic take on the death penalty, the Lone Star State has long been known for its aggressive stance on law enforcement. Thanks to a strange new law, it's a sting that may soon be felt by a number of the state's computer-repair people.

Add This dot Com - One Button: your content everywhere through bookmarking and sharing

this little FREE widget [link to site is above] I fell across on someone else's site (something innocuous like our local ABC TV affiliate I think) has saved me HOURS of coding! not to mention scurrying around trying to find all the different social networking/blogging, etc. sites

so far it works, it's free, it's wonderful and i haven't found any downside yet (and no i don't work for the company)

Subject:Sound Problem.
Posted by:konstrix.
Time:6:16 pm.
So i gave my old pc to my gf since i got a new one. the specs on this are:

ath64 2800
1gb ram
radeon 9800xt
creative sb live 5.1
msi via neo v viak8t800 mobo

she has 2.1 speakers. so i connected them as normal, but no sound would come out. digital output only is unchecked under advanced options in volume control. every driver is updated and nothing. the weird thing is, when i plug headphones into the line out jack, i hear the audio.

so i tried a fresh pair of 2.1 speakers and still, nothing. desktop stereo speakers is selected on sound control panel as well as sb live being the default device for sound. everything is fine under device manager. no yellow exclamation marks.

creative audiohq will not load. none of the creative programs will load despite running under task manager. i feel the creative files are corrupt, however...

...i uninstalled the soundcard and installed drivers for MSI K8T800 onboard realtek AC97 sound. i figured this would work, but again, it did not. if i plugged in headphones, i could hear sound, but nothing from speakers.

this is extremely frustrating. im afraid if i buy a totally new soundcard, the same will happen. no sound from speakers, but sound from headphones will be fully audible.

any prompt help at all would be appreciated.

Subject:technological keychains
Posted by:izalice.
Time:8:43 pm.
I am very broke & trying to raise some money by making & selling things so I have been creative & used what I had around me : I made those funky technological key-chains using dead RAM memory bars from computers my boyfriend repaired or thrifted/dumpster-dived.

I’ve had some [rather rude] people say this was « lame » in other communities [like crafting communities, etc…] I dont think these are lame, I think they are pretty cool & I gave some to friends who thought so as well and I kept one myself to use! I agree that they werent very long to make [duh] and I usually make stuff a little more creative/crafty than this, but I used what was at hand and dare I say I think it’s a pretty good idea & has some style [in a geeky way :) ]! I thought this may interest some of you since there is « computer parts » in this community’s interests.

Each has a regular metal key loop & can hold keys like any normal keychain. They are sturdy, lightweight & easy to find in your purse / messenger bag front pocket because of their practical shape. They are all about 3 inches long and vary slightly in width [3/4 inch to 1 inch] but they are all metallic green with a varying number of little black boxes & different patterns.

Each goes for 7$ US postage paid
If this interests you please buy one & help a starving artist survive ;)

Paypal to girl_w_cat@yahoo.com

If you do think it’s lame, there is no need to waste your time & mine by commenting to say it… just scroll past & please dont be rude.
Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!

Posted by:cmdeane.
Time:5:42 pm.

NetworkingBoards.com - Is a free site that all people around the world can join for help with computers and networking. Networking Boards was created by myself and is manned by a few staff members from the colleges of LaGuardia Community College and also Devry Institute of Tech here in LIC,NY. Networking Boards is a place where people of any computer literacy can come and learn about computers and their applications in the modern and ever changing business world. We have a few certified and qualified individuals who work in the IT field who will be able to answer most if not all your questions\issues.

This site was created as a free service to the IT and Tech community, in order to close gaps in terms of distance and social aspects of life. You can meet people here for consulting projects and also plan events for LAN parties in your own local area. This site was just recently started so there is not a whole lot happening. But with your help we can help eachother, and the world grow together in a confident and competant partnership.

Thank You!

Hope to see you all at the boards!
