...Files won't display, directory won't delete, drive won't format
After having a few slow-access problems, I ran a virus scan (McAfee) on my
D: drive (second HDD, 15Gb). To my surprise, the scan listed a directory
and files which I didn't recognise: I didn't note any full pathnames, but a
typical one was something like D:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21... Dd159.zip . I
wondered if this was anything to do with the Recycle bin, despite the fact
that I'd emptied it immediately before the scan.
No viruses were detected, but when I ran an error check I got the message
"the scan could not be completed".

Are you using an X-Calibur accelerator? It is incompatible with the A4091
and, with my configuration, it hangs just after loading its software, when
it resets the Amiga.
I am curious about how to bypass the SCSI controller in the A4000T...

...Printer won't print, messages won't delete in WindowsXP Pro
I'm running Windows XP Pro with a Lexmark Z22 printer. Often when I try to
print, the printing notification widow pops up. As usual, I hear "Printing
started," but nothing happens while the seconds are ticking away on the
clock. If I try to cancel the job, then check the printing queue, the job
is still there, marked "Deleting." The only way to get it to print is to
restart, then it works (until the next time). The only way to delete the
unsuccessful print job is to go into task manager under Processes and try to
guess which process to delete. This works, when I g...database layouts won't print, now database won't open

Fact is that all recent GNU/Linux releases kick Microsoft Windows 7's
ass in stability, usability, hardware support, (lower) resources
requirement and price.

"I have been using Ubuntu since Intrepid, and this has been by far the

Karmic had the safely remove hardware option. Since Lucid is a "LTS"

The first thing that was more of an annoyance was that the min. max.,

where something like 75% of the people didn't like it. I was hoping that
the Beta version would have gotten rid of it, but they didn't. It's not
that big of a deal to switch, but it was annoying having all the other
tabs like in Firefox on the right, and windows in VB on the right as well.
The volume button at the top of the panel went MIA. It won't automount
external hard drives. Won't auto recognise CDs or DVDs. Firefox seems to
loose connectivity for no reason. This might be a wireless issue in
Lucid itself. There was a thread on it a day or so ago. I had to

had to reconfig everything! Now it gives me some BS that this version is

Bill Gates: Microsoft 'working hard' on Longhorn - 'won't be a radical
shift' just 'an improvement'
----- Start Quotes -----
"Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said current Internet search-engine
technology is 'a joke,' and promised better features in two to three years.
But the head of the software giant, in an event on the sidelines of the
World Economic Forum here late Friday, acknowledged that Microsoft had
stumbled in its own search-engine efforts. He said the company had been
'stupid as hell' to let Google take the lead in the search market," Peter
Loftus and Taska Manzaroli report for Dow Jones Newswires.
"Separately, Gates said Microsoft was 'certainly working hard' to release a
new computer operating system, dubbed Longhorn, in 2006. 'It won't be a
radical shift, but it will be clearly an improvement on Windows,' the
ubiquitous operating system, Gates
----- End Quotes -----
Does MS have the money to toss into Longhorn and search technologies to play
catch-up with Apple and Google? Probably the first iteration of both
Longhorn and their search technologies will suck, but enough people will
foolishly buy into it, and by version 4, each will be pretty good.
