single quote around the statement?
is there some kind of escape character/s?
I think ^
Patje
Ugh mgolisch, it only displays drivers that are not compatible with my pc (that's what windows says, at least)
I attempted to load one of them but it returns an error
vitaly
guys i got some background for windows and it made all icons and icons fonts not transparent anymore
all icons are like in this blue ugly box
i searched in google about it, they say like remove shadows in fonts under my_computer > properties > advanced > performance > etc
but it doesn't work
mgolisch
Patje: hm strange
vitaly
anyone else ran into that with windows xp backgrounds?
Patje
I'll try to install from USB again.
It would be USB-FDD right :P
Or is fdd floppy
malikcpp
hi everybody !
is it possible to pipe all the data an application is downloading from the net ??
i mean within a program
Lex_Talionis
what do you mean by "pipe"
pipe typically refers to forwarding logs or results to a log of some kind
malikcpp
sorry for my vocabulary but in other terms i want to get all these informations
Lex_Talionis
malikcpp, if you want to capture all the information an application is downloading use a packet sniffer like wireshark...i cant teach you how to use or interpret wireshark you'll have to learn about that yourself
malikcpp
i know this program but is there any wireshark api or sthing like it for developping an application ? because i dont really want to do all from begining with basics sockets in c ...
maybe i should search first on the net ... but thx for your help Lex_Talionis ;)
Lex_Talionis
malikcpp, good approace/question I honestly dont know if they supply thier api
mgolisch
malikcpp: winpcap?
iam quite sure they use that for the actualy capturing
malikcpp
winpcap ? thx mgolisch let's see
yet these programs can only filter type of packages and not what application is requesting these packages ...
m00se
that's for internet packets
I'm suspecting that you don't want that pgm
your question is so vague that it's impossible to tell you where to find what you're looking for
"an application" is not enough information
malikcpp
i mean a running process ... an exe file ... i dont know how to be more precise
m00se
but you aren't telling us what data you want - you can use a pgm like procmon.exe that will give you a LOT of information, in real time, that tells you what every process on your computer is doing
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx
is that what you need?
jimcooncat
maybe he wants to tee the download
m00se
that's not what he's saying
<malikcpp> i mean a running process ... an exe file
how do you gather that from his statement?
he wants internal process information
procmon is one tool that's free, that does it
bilalakhtar
when will windows become open source?
m00se
it is!
malikcpp
do you know IVAO ? if you dont it's a virtual aviation organisation which promote simulation of ATC (controlling) and flight
m00se
it happened this morning - how bout that huh?
your lucky day!
malikcpp
i want to test a program which is a automatic flight controller .. but all programs which want access to data can only download it 1 time per minute (only validated programs can download it when it want to)
and they are of course validated programs and i want to get from them the data they have downloaded
m00se: i think i could not be more precise
was i clear ?
m00se
I'm still parsing
melodie_
hello
:)
KalmVsKhaos
hi
melodie_
hi KalmVsKhaos
KalmVsKhaos
:D
m00se
so you want to eavesdrop on an internet stream of data that isn't directed to your machine, but another on the internet - correct so far?
melodie_
I'm coming for an advice, it's about restoring a windows image from clonezilla
do someone have some experience with that ?
I had come here when I wanted to do the backup, now there are 2 possibilities I can use, I'm not sure which one is the most relevant :)
anyone uses Clonezilla to backup his systems ?
jgornick
Has anyone ever experienced an issue where I have XP SP3 and join a domain, add a domain group to the local Administrators group, then log back in with the local administrator account and don't have permissions to run like an IE7 or IE8 install or re-install SP3?
m00se
melodie_ which 2?
I've used clonezilla once or twice
certainly no expert with it but I am familiar with it a little bit
melodie_
m00se,
I want to restore the boot of Windows, but for this I have only 2 possibilities :
either restore the whole drive, or restore partitons, but it seems it only offers to restore the partitions and not the mbr
I guess I'd better restore the whole suff :)
m00se
yep
melodie_
that's a netboot and I use Clonezilla live booted from Grub on the pendrive
m00se
you have to restore how you imaged though
melodie_
connected with ssh to the desktop where the backup is stored
m00se, allright, I get that
m00se
if you only imaged a partition I don't think that includes the mbr
melodie_
in what Clonezilla sees as "one image" there are several files, among which "sda-mbr" and other named "partition-this", "partition-that"...
m00se
then you're in luck
:-)
melodie_
is that so ?
well now it's looking for a directory that don't exit
m00se
let's hope so anyway
I have had mixed luck with that pgm
melodie_
I will have to create /home/partimag it seems
m00se
unfortunately I can't recommend it 100%
it's hosed a couple of my images in the past
without warning
reisio
what has?
melodie_
what is "hose" ?
rotten ?
m00se
just didn't include all of the files and formats that it was supposed to
reisio
melodie_: boned, b0rked, corrupted
m00se
yes, bad
reisio
destroyed
m00se
wrecked, destroyed
reisio
unw00ted
m00se
worthless
melodie_
reisio, ah ok

hi reisio
m00se
clonezilla reisio
SP1
hi m00se
reisio
figured :)
m00se
HI
SP1
hi
reisio
doesn't clonezilla use dd?
m00se
probably
reisio
only all the steps are obfuscated, so you can only use clonezilla to get it back?
m00se
gentoo-based
SP1
what is clonezilla
bilalakhtar
is windows debian-based or redhat-based?
reisio
http://mark.koli.ch/2009/05/howto-whole-disk-backups-with-dd-gzip-and-p7zip.html
bilalakhtar: :p
bilalakhtar
or freebsd-based?
m00se
bilalakhtar - OS/2
SP1
windows is ms based
reisio
bilalakhtar: it's a cross between DOS-based and OpenVMS-based
bilalakhtar
no, its MAC-BASED!
lol
m00se
reisio - she's got an image already
reisio
don't they all
m00se
not THAT kind of image
Snares
bilalakhtar: You're right, though :)
bilalakhtar: But Mac is Xerox based so...
reisio
m00se: don't they all
bilalakhtar
Snares: I don't understand why this channel id here
*is
HentaiPCBSD
for help
reisio
bilalakhtar: what do you understand?
SP1
how is windows os/2 based?
HentaiPCBSD
read topic bilalakhtar
SP1: it isn't
SP1
thank you
reisio
SP1: insofar as it isn't
HentaiPCBSD
also it depends on windows you are talking about
SP1
any windows
Ragenix
WindOS/2.
Or DOS/2.
bilalakhtar
reisio: but isn't it wierd for windoze users to come on irc to ask questions?
SP1
insofar? reisio
bilalakhtar this is the chat room for windows users to ask questions in
bilalakhtar
I also don't understand why windows exist. I mean the physical windows in a house
SP1
the pc wouldnt be what it is today with out microsoft making windows
eightfold
seriously, is there a way to get rid of the light blueness that is everywhere i w7?
HentaiPCBSD
bilalakhtar: enough with the trolling
Brimstar
eightfold: Change themes? I've got grays
bilalakhtar
HentaiPCBSD: fine, i will leave with a troll
reisio
bilalakhtar: not as weird as it'd be for them not to
eightfold
Brimstar: yes, i've changed theme, but that only changes the window borders?
rjk
classic mode
eightfold
eh, so you have to turn off aero to truly affect colors?
or else it is light blue?
SP1
classic mode will make your windows look plain and borind
Brimstar
Advanced appearance settings possibly? Never really looked for it
SP1
eightfold what version windows os
eightfold
Window Color nd Apperance isn't affected
SP1: ultimate
SP1
you mean 7?
eightfold
SP1: yes
and yeah, they seem to have hard coded that fugly light blueness into standard apps like calc.exe
SP1
i dont know about vista or windows 7. i have xp pro with sp2 update
eightfold
wordpad etc
even changing to classic doesn't help
SP1
did you google the problem to see if others have it?
m00se
classic is blue
SP1
and on xp classic theme is grey everything
eightfold
m00se: no, you can use "Window Color and Appearance"in classic and chose whatever color you like
SP1: classic uses same rgb numbers in w7 as in xp it seems
SP1
hmmm... i dont know anything bout that
all i know when you turn on xp's classic theme it looks ugly
eightfold
i'm probably alone with this, but i kinda hate that kindergarten blue
SP1
mine is xp theme right now?
Arrick
gads I hate windows delayed write
i have a TB of info lost because of it
eightfold
ok, i see now it really is blue and can't be changed
reisio
Arrick: yeah, that's annoying
eightfold
good job
SP1
what is delayed write?
reisio
when it says it's done writing, but isn't
SP1
ok
reisio
also known as 'not-write'
or 'not right'
:p
SP1
here i just wait untill i dont hear any hd noise and the hd light is stopped flashing
rjk
you could monitor with perfmon too
SP1
or you could brab a program that shows on your desktop when the drive is working
grab*
m00se
or you could just turn the write behind off
or you could just throw it out the window and hit a puppy with it
MaxHR
Hello, I have some mov files I need to convert to avi/xvid to play on a Divx capable Toshiba dvd player, any suggestions for best audio/video settings to ensure it will play smoothly?
SP1
brb
reisio
MaxHR: you have a hardware DVD player that plays AVI files? Neat
MaxHR: WinFF or HandBrake
MaxHR
reisio: yeah, its old, got it from costco about 2 years ago
reisio
costco, those fiends
MaxHR
I am using MediaCoder as the conversion program

by default most programs do not select the highest quality preservation settings
Marupa
In linux, there's a plugin for Compiz called maximumize, which lets you tile all windows to available space on the screen. Is there such a program for windows?
reisio
as transcoding and preserving quality exactly tends to create enormous files
