       OK, Windoze experts! Since my Windoze machine handles my voicemail, fax,
and ftp server, and it crashes at least once a week, is there a simple
way of getting around the login dialog box? I'd like to either
automatically log myself in or have it start up with no one logged in,
but run my startup programs. I've got a "Power on/off" box that reboots
the machine should the voicemail not pick up... but the machine stops at
the network login.

Thanks!

Get TweakUI (available from microsoft) for your system.  It has an auto login
option which logs a default user in every time the system boots.

Blimey. It's a good job MS don't employ that other "lovely" multinational,
McDonald's, policy on making comments about their products!
We'd all be doing a "10 stretch" in "chokey" by now. Or in court, at least.

I beg to differ.  "marginal" hardware would have to be defined as
"hardware for which only crappy Windows device drivers are available",
which has nothing to do with the hardware and its reliability at all.  I
have had several bits of hardware (old system board, Trident TGUI9440
video cards, disk controllers, etc) that caused no end of problems with
Windows but ran perfectly under any other OS (meaning DOS and Linux).

It depends more on the programs you run than on marginal hardware.  I too have
had machines that 'never crashed'  (I sold the last one <sigh>), but then I
never ran Microsoft Word on them (one of the worst offenders in the MS software
line of expensive memory leakers) or many other programs a typical user uses.
(I should admit here that on systems which do crash I often haven't installed
the various service packs available, though.  I just wish...)

A typical system crash starts when a program misuses or doesn't release memory
(or other system resources, for that matter) when it exits.  It may be several
minutes or several days before this actually affects the rest of the system,
making it difficult to troubleshoot computer crashes.  One cannot easily
recreate the problem, nor find the one program that ran oh so long ago which
caused the problem.

I actually envy those in other countries.  MS won't release a seperate language
version of a product until after the US version was released, and often not
until after the first or even second service pack.  Of course, by then other
countries are flooded with bootleg copies of the american version.

I had 135K on mine when I sold it.  The engine and transmission were pulled from
a beat-up body - I had (my one and only) accident sliding into a guard rail on
ice.  Put it back together in a week, drove it until the rust made it obvious it
would never pass safety inspection again.  Of course, having the driver's door
bolted shut didn't help either ...

Had over 250K on my Honda Civic (1976, 1200cc engine) when I got rid of it.
Body had more orange rust than blue paint.  Engine was given to a boat racer.

My 1981 Rabbit has > 200K miles on it.  I know this because the odometer, which
didn't work when I bought it, says 67K and I've easily put 130K on in the 5
years I've had it in my stable.  Just put a new front end in it (mechanicals)
and expect another 5 years at least.  The engine is needing a rebuild, but
otherwise this thing is pretty good.  Only a couple spots of rust - that Rusty
Jones treatment the original owner had sure worked great!

Hi Alexandre,

In this case, he is talking about a Ford car, manufactured (I think,someone
correct me if I'm wrong) in the late seventies or early eighties, which
supposedly had a problem with its gas tank so that it would sometimes bust
into flames when hit from behind.

A model of automobile or car sold in the united states. It was not known for
having a long service life. And, like the Chevy "Nova" (or No-go in some
languages), was not marketed well in other countries.

BUT AGAIN, what matters is the "pinto" owner, more than the "pinto." If you
learn to run it right, contact and learn from other "pinto" owners, feed it
the correct type of "gas" and "oil" for that type of "pinto", etc... you too
can own the longest continuously running "pinto" on the block.

But if you run it on crap and don't set it up right, it will fall apart.

And that holds true for Windows "pintos" and Linux "pintos" as well.
Explorer both sides and buy the one that is right for you...

...and stop picking on each other, ok?

Your "Explorer" typo made me think that, unlike the Ford Explorer, when
Internet Explorer crashes, at least lives aren't lost.  :-(

I gotta wonder...  "pinto" is a kind of horse...  there's kind of a

Umm... Generally the explorer is very safe to be in, in a crash.
I was rear ended a couple weeks ago, by an inattentive driver.
I sustained no damage other than some paint transfer on my bumper, though
the collision was enough to push the Ex two feet with the brakes
locked.  The other car, a mid-size pickup, had extensive front-end damage.

I also had a run-in with a telephone pole (ice) several years ago.
Head on at 55, and all I got was a bruise where the seat belt goes.
The car was totalled, as it pushed the engine back about two feet.

In neither case, was the car to blame.

       Hahahahaha, It's funny. But I actually never had a glitch here. Of course, PROVOCATED GLITCHES (as nukes, not well behaved programs, etc) happen. But "natural glitches" (that kind that happens alone - you are doing nothing and the machine sudennly dies) it never happened. I use to let my computer turned on and connected to internet 24h/day. And I have to reboot only 3 or 4 times a week (the resource consumption is fairy high...)

       That's incredible. But that's why I have a Pentium MMX 200 until now...
