And one last thing I feel it's important to mention
that I saw in Lockergnome Tech Specialist:

http://[email protected]

"A virus posing as a security patch from Microsoft is
making its way around the Internet faster than
expected, causing Symantec to boost the threat
assessment. I haven't seen this bugger hit my inbox
yet, but it's said to be on the move. An attachment
by the name of Q216309.exe will be present, along
with text claiming that the file is a patch for a
security flaw. If the file is launched, a trojan will
be installed on the PC and the virus will propagate
itself through Outlook using its own SMTP engine."

Hello coders! This week before featuring a tip I
want to remind you that they come from my online
book. Oh would you buy a print book by myself?
Like an ULTIMATE XP thing, with EVERYTHING you
would EVER want to or need to know about XP? Let
me know: [email protected] I appreciate your comments.

Now for this weeks tip:
Add More Admin Account Pictures

Each user gets to pick a picture to use for their
account picture. Well maybe you want a picture of
yourself or your company logo to be an option for
each user on the system.

Well simply copy the graphic that is 48x48 pixels large to:

C:Documents And SettingsAll UsersApplication DataMicrosoftUser Account PicturesDefault Pictures

Try it. I have an XPreme picture you might want to use:

Thanks to Brad Kelly for the image.

8. Rant from Riceraver

Okay, so here goes. Why is it that some people
appreciate your hardwork and others don't? I, like
many others, have worked our butts off to get
respect. Then what happens? Nothing. You are left
behind like everyone else with all your hardwork
forgotten. Why am I ranting about this? I'll explain
next week... if Chris reminds me. =)


9. Rant from Quik

So, up here in Toronto Ontario (Canada) Its march
break! Nice!! this means off of school for a whole
week! w00t'ness.

The weather here has been totally random! One day,
mass ammount of wind, the other nice and sunny!
Hopefully we're hitting the spring soon, so I can
start catching spring pics for the dreamincode
contest I may enter! Wow, a full year of hosting!

Speaking of competitions, SlashRaids NCAA competition
seems pretty ineteresting! I dont think a whole lot
o people know bout' it, so check it out at
http://www.dreamincode.net/cgi-bin....p>Well, the past few weeks has been Amazing!! I dont
recall one day passed where I was in a bad mood!
Thanks to Chris, I got hooked up with a scripting
job regards to php/mysql. Then, oddly enough, I
happen to pop into flashkit to see their backend
forum. Someone needed help there, and offered to
pay me to do it. Thank you paypal!!! So anyways,
web-design related jobs have been going nice!

Last week,  I saw 40days and 40nights. Friggen great
movie!! Really funny! I suggest you all go out and
see it. Definatley two thumbs up! Friday night, was
also great, went out with this nice chick from my
school. Saw the worst movie ever-- The Time Machine,
and well, lets not discuss what happend after. ^_^

Today, I went shopping with my sis, bought some nice
new shizzle (clothing colone etc!). Only because I
have another date with a girl I got hooked up with
through a friend =) Big Pimpin! haha, okay I think
you heard enough of my love stories!

9. Ramble from Webmaster Chris Kenworthy

Alrighty, I'll cover a few things this week in the
ramble. First being the new show on MTV: The Osbournes
Yeh, it friggin rocks! I'm totally hooked on it, Ozzy
is just totally wasted and the kids are crazy! It's
just awesome. Next thing is my HP Photosmart Digi
Cam. I wanted to take pictures of my new stickers I
got for my car, full back window dream.in.code sticker
with the URL under it... it's tight! Anyway, I wanted
to show ya'll some pictures but when I went to snag
the pictures from the cam, I found I didn't have the
XP drivers, so I go to download them from the HP
site, well... you can't... you have to PAY for the
stupid drivers now! I couldn't believe it, it's all
good now though, they rectified the situation, but
I'm still hella pissed.

I put off my #### photoshop final exam for 5 weeks.
And tonight found myself hurrying to get it finished
in time for tomorrows due date. But, it's done! So
yeh, it's all good!

Check this out, I'm tired of little kids bitching at
me about how they can design and how my site sucks
and all this BS when they can't even do HTML forms!
What kinda crazy f-ed up shit is that? It aint cool
to go dissing on someone that's twice your age and
knows 10 times what you do. And another thing, I'm
tired of seeing friggin loser-ass-kids mooch off
others, if you want something done, try it yourself!
Don't come to me and ask me to do your homework
assignment then LIE to me that it's not for school!
I know you aint doing this crap on your own! What
idiot would program something to calculate the high
and low values of something (just an example) on
BAN THOSE THAT DO! AND HAVE! Yeh, that's my little
rant for this week. Peace f00!~

Naw, there's a big difference about joking around and the retards that come on here and steal graphics, ask for people to do shit for them with no payment, etc.

I totally agree man, there is a ban button for a reason.  Don't Fuck around cause we're not.
