Firewall ProblemsjawaproWed 21/06/2006 08:18 PM
I reinstalled windows on my PC, and added a bigger harddrive. I now have two 80Gs instead of an 80 and a 40.
But I installed Windows, my anti-virus, my firewalls, and then everthing went wrong.
The PC would have a breif bluescreen and then reboot.
Sometimes it´d be as soon as windows loaded, other times it´d last a few min first.
I was going to blame the harddrive, as it had come out of an old PC and wast completely reliable.
But turns out, it was the two firewalls fighting either other, and somehow causeing windoz errorz.
Back when I used Win2000 I had both ZoneAlarms and BlackIce running together. Why use two firewalls? Well ZA seems good for blocking outgoing programs, but BI is better for blocking incomming stuff. So I used both.
When I upgraded to XP I was slack and only used one.
But this time I installed both. They were newer versions than last time, and it was XP, so I dont know what caused the problem - but I know something did.
They dont play nice together anymore.
But at least my PC is going ok again now.

Supreme CommanderjawaproFri 16/06/2006 08:18 PM
Ok ok, I know I am supposed to be studying for my last exam, but my brain was going to mush, so I took a break.
And I found this trailer. And it´s awesome. It´s from the upcomming game Supreme Commander that´s being made by the same guy who made Total Annihilation - and it shows. This game looks fantastic.
And just cause he cant call it TA2 becuase of legal reasons - this sure looks like the sequal to TA, perhaps not in story (but there never was much in TA) but in the sort of game. I cant wait to give it a test drive.
You can get the awesome trailer here or at least you could when I got it. Its free and easy to download, but be warned - it´s 30Mb. But worth it - especially if you are a fan of TA.

Now its time to study for exams - sigh...

I could sleep for a week.
Star Wars Trivia Night CanceledjawaproThu 04/05/2006 08:18 PM
They canceled the trivia night because not enough people wanted to come - after I had finally managed to get a team together....
Next time hopefully we´ll give it more publicity and get more interest.
