|10:30 am - The day after XP|
Well it's installed and its basic stuff is setup.
Other then the hard drive corruption which should be gone since all the drives have been formated.
Problems still left to face:
Getting remote desktop working. (Ferret is this only for local network computers or can i use this over broadband?)
Get rear speaker out to work for some reason i have to plug speakers into my livedrive on the front of the computer.
Otherwise windows plays the opening sound and then dies. but works fine on the front.
And then the tough stuff. getting video and 3d to work. Hopefully i can get my all in wonder software to work.
Good things about XP........
It looks pretty?
I have my LJ icon on my start menu. :)
It will be stable and faster.... hopefully. I haven't noticed much increase yet other then outlook
but thats cause it doesn't have to deal with the 5-6 years of email.
And getting Divx to work wasn't to much of a hastle though i was worried when the movies went into highspeed which appears to just be
the video catching up so its all good.
We will see what the future holds
Current Mood: nervous

1) check silly.
3) DX works fine. At least for me.
7) Hm. Not sure if it has drivers yet. You could try the 2K ones. But I've found 50% of the 2K drivers don't work.
8) Those drivers are almost a year old! :o I hope they're going to release new ones!
