  1. I'm in Computer Engineering at the moment. I'm currently working (on a co-op term/internship) as a technical analyst/developer for an insurance company. No clue what I'm going to be doing when I graduate though. :P

    Computer engineers, software engineers, and computer scientists seem to be in high demand, I guess. Myself and one of my colleagues (also on a co-op term/internship) are among the highest paid students there this summer. :thumbsup_anim: Lots of programming work out there, but yeah, it is kind of hard finding a job. Before being placed, I applied to about 50 jobs and only got 5 interviews out of those applications (10 jobs got canceled). To compare, in my first semester, I applied to 30 jobs, and got 10 interviews.

  2. Over the past couple of years or so, I've been scripting here and there. Since then, I've used and maintained two such scripts that have gained some popularity on other forums and sites I frequently visit.

    First off, I have my ever-so-popular "Jeremy Signature" that I use over at MSFN.org (it's a little too big to use here) based on the character over at Pure Pwnage. The actual one I use at the moment is a bit more customized than the one I have available for download, but it's not all that different (just a few different backgrounds):


    It's similar to the widely used Danasoft signatures that are out there, but integrates multiple dynamic backgrounds, customizable operating system and browser names, custom "quotes" or messages to display, and Hamachi web status (which I've also integrated into my signature here). Also note, the one that's available for download doesn't include the backgrounds with my picture. :P

    Another script that I'm fairly proud of is my Hamachi Online Status script. You basically tell it what Hamachi clients you want to monitor and it will sort them into a nice, organized list. Examples:

    http://www.zxian.org/ (At the top of his menu)


    Both scripts are available for download here.

  3. So if you reformat and have not reinstalled a OS, you can still recover from that HDD? Or even if you have reinstalled a OS after a reformat you can still recover? Sorry, I am a little slow somwtimes. LOL.

    If you reformat and have no reinstalled an OS, you should be able to recover almost everything (though, I have had success in recovering 100% of data. If you reinstall the OS, you'll overwrite data already on the drive, so you won't be able to recover everything.

    Also, I know there is software/hardware out there that can recover things from reformats with gutman passes etc and also for physically damaged HDD's but I had no ideal that there were things out for the public. Thanks for the info

    Yup. You're welcome. :)

  4. After a reformat, I believe there is no software out there to recover it with, unless you work for the FBI. Sorry

    As long as data on the drive is not overwritten (formatting the drive doesn't actually overwrite any data), pretty much everything can be recovered.

    @thealexweb: If you still haven't recovered your data, you should give PhotoRec a try; it's worked wonders for me before.

  5. I can't believe this? Mike, is that really you? Am I glad to see you here mate!

    Welcome back, hope to see you around the forums.

    Cheers bud!

    Haha, yes it is. :) Do you need proof or something? :P

  6. Hey guys,

    I'm sure some of you know me from MSFN.org. I joined WinCert.Net a few years ago but had N1K remove my account due to my inactivity on the site. I decided to rejoin after finding an old PM from N1K over at MSFN.org. Hopefully I can make a few contributions to the site!



  7. Hmmm... It was 150MHz, had 32MB of RAM, and a 1.3GB drive, and the battery didn't hold a charge anymore... The laptop was more than 10 years old. I think $30 was a great deal for me, actually, considering I got it for free.

  8. Pretty much all of them. However, I think it's having problems with IE7.

    EDIT: Supports all of these:

    MSIE 5

    MSIE 4

    MSIE 6

    MSIE 7
