ugh, microsoft still plans to support fax machines as devices? OMG what is a fax machine? Is that something from the same era as the Floppy Disk?

Steve Balmer needs to retire.

All the corporate companies are required to send the sensitive (like SSN) only through FAX. Emailing scanned copies of such data is not allowed. Any digital data transfer is not considered legit (legal) but FAX. :)

Probably the biggest delay is due to patent research and patent applications. Oh well, time to deal with other countries than the USA, where software is not patentable.

Both Vista and Win7 already install with "hibernation" turned on by default. However, hibernation mode has never worked reliably on most hardware, and generally causes more problems than it's worth. Most techs I know (including me) recommend turning it off. Funny how the ivory tower folks never know this stuff.

I have two screens - on my old computer one was an extension of the other - I would just open and slide new tabs where I wanted them. Now I think I can only use one screen the other one seems to be a pretty picture screen while I work on the other one...Please Help, any suggestions?
