    Assalamu alaikum bro rofi...you were once a mod too right?? what happened to the graphics team? -------------------- In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring. Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity. Khalil Gibran
  2. The day after a man lost his wife in a scuba diving accident, he was greeted by two grim-faced policemen at his door. "We're sorry to call on you at this hour, Mr. Jones, but we have some information about your wife." "Well, tell me!" the man said. The policeman said, "We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news. Which do you want to hear first?" Fearing the worse, Mr. Jones said, "Give me the bad news first." So the policeman said, "I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in the San Francisco Bay." "Oh my god!" said Mr. Jones, overcome by emotion. Remembering what the cop had said, he asked, "So what's the good news?" "Well," said the cop, "when we pulled her up she had two five-pound lobsters and a dozen good size Dungeoness crabs on her." "If that's the good news, then what's the great news!?!" he asked. And the cop replied... "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow morning!"

  5. what pc you got ?

    assalamu alaikum it is the speed at which your hard drive rotates... just like the 24x/32x speeds for the CD drives... the more the value the better the speed...7200 rpm drives are the latest and the greatest now... some have 4200 and 5600 rpm speeds too
  6. Never Happy

    Assalamu alaikum Thats a typical human characteristic... well it includes me and you as well... I think part of the reason is our love for all the material things..I mean there are still some sufis and scholars..who keep themselves from these worldly desires... one way to make people understand and appreciate what they posses is to deprive them of all their possessions and to make them realise how much they would suffer if they lose what they possess.. but that is an extreme idea.. people are people..NOTHING can be done!
  7. Microsoft does it too!!!

    Pirated software used to create help content in Microsoft's Windows XP By Wolfgang Gruener, Senior Editor November 15, 2004 - 13:54 EST Chicago (IL) - Members of a former software cracking group have discovered that audio files created with one of its cracked programs are distributed with each copy of the Windows XP operating system, possibly exposing Microsoft to a large-scale copyright infringement lawsuit. The content in question can be found on every computer with Windows XP as operating system installed. Nine WAV audio files located in the folder " "Help[##][/##]Tours[##][/##]WindowsMediaPlayer[##][/##]Audio[##][/##]Wav" in the Windows installation directory include a signature of "Deepz0ne", a member of former cracking group "Radium". If the files are opened not with an audio player, but with a HEX editor or simply in Windows' own text editor Notepad, the last line displays as "000-04-06 IENG Deepz0ne ISFT Sound Forge 4.5". A source confirmed to Tom's Hardware Guide, that the signature is "authentic for the cracked version of Sound Forge 4.5" and relates to the cracker Deepz0ne. "The Radium group has been dissolved about four years ago, but still meets every week in a casual manner," the source said. "One of the members circulated the information at a birthday part last weekend and then pitched the story apparently to Germany's PC Welt magazine," he said. PC Welt published the story the same day. Sound Forge is a professional audio editing software popular among audio enthusiasts. Sony recently has purchased the intellectual property of the product from Sonic Foundry, which developed and sold version 4.5. According to Benjamin Kern, attorney at Chicago-based law firm Gordon & Glickson LLC, the use of a pirated version of Sound Forge can result in a copyright infringement claim: "Other legal issues, such as patent infringement, trade secret misappropriation and contract breach may also be relevant, but copyright infringement is the most prominent," Kern said. It is unclear at this time, if the current owner Sony or the orginal developer Sound Forge have the right to bring legal action against Microsoft. When software is transferred from one party to another, the transfer agreement often also includes the transfer of a right to bring an action for infringement, according to Kern. "In this case, if Sound Forge transferred its copyright in the software to Sony, it is not clear whether Sound Forge or Sony owned the copyright at the time the infringement was committed," Kern said. At this time, liability also appears to be unclear. "Ultimate financial responsibility depends on whether a copyrighted work was provided to Microsoft by a third party, who may be responsible to Microsoft, by contract or otherwise, for any liability Microsoft could face," Kern explained. Potential remedies for a copyright infringement include actual damages plus profits of the infringer, or set statutory damages. Given the profits Microsoft rakes in with Windows XP, even a small percentage of the profits could result in an unexpected windfall for Sony. Sony and the Business Software Alliance were contacted by Tom's Hardware Guide but so far have not yet responded to the accusations. Microsoft declined to comment "at this time".
