Waddya mean what happened to it?

It's an image uploading service and you've uploaded the image you posted above to it, which can be viewed.

So... is that unexpected behavior? I would think not, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
Or do you mean that the site response is extremely slow (which it is, and which I'd agree with)?

First screenshot from my just-built PC (I'm defragging because I've somehow managed to install over 150GB of apps and games within a week! ):

(Clicky)


I don't get what all the hate for Vista is all about. Personally, it's one of the best OSes I've ever used. It's fast, the interface is sleek, and the file-structure & security seems to take cues from Linux (that's a good thing). Running in 64-bit hasn't slowed me down either; all my programs & games run smoothly, and drivers aren't as hard to come by as I thought they would be. I'll never go back to XP or Ubuntu again.

This is a sig of some nature.

1. They ruined the wireless networking manager from XP, which is still the best GUI for wireless networks I have used
2. The ability to degrade the quality of audio/video playback at the request of the content's provider (Why did I bother to get high quality video or audio to begin with if it is going to be screwed with?)
3. Internet Explorer
4. Unecessary bloat
5. Unecessarily complex wizards for things that don't even need wizards
6. Yes. I want to delete this folder.
7. Yes. I want to delete this file in that folder.
8. Yes. I want to delete this file in that folder.
9. Yes. I want to delete this file in that folder.
10. Yes. I want to delete this file in that folder.
11. Yes. I want to delete this file in that folder.
12. Yes. I want to skip the Recycle Bin, which is why I told you TO DELETE ALL THIS SHIT IN THE FIRST PLACE
13. Yes. I want to run that program, which is why I DOUBLE CLICKED ON IT
14. DRM (subset of #2, perhaps?, but who cares?)
15. "Software Protection Platform"

Do I really need to go on? Its fine for people like my mother who don't have a clue (not that it helps with her cluelessness, because all these stupid questions just make her worry about what she is doing even though she clicks OK/Yes/etc anyway).

I gave my copy of zone alarm to my father a while ago because he needed something a little more secure once he got high speed internets. He is not the type to be able to deal with a firewall, so I had to go with software, hence zone alarm.

He clicks yes to everything and gets infected with even more crap now than he ever did before.

Point being, people don't care/don't know what is going on and simply button mash on their computers ... then wonder why everything is fucked up.

As I quickly found with my father: more security is not the key, less choice for the ignorant end user is. Vista seriously biffed that one.

They created an illusion of security with these dialog boxes - nothing more. A real attempt to prevent undesirable actions would be to make it so that no program can be executed unless installed by an Administrator or given executable priveleges by an Administrator. Every file in the system does not need and should not have the capacity to be executable. Instead, they just assume that the clueless are going to magically have a clue because you made them choose something.

Plus, it worked so well in IE, didn't it?

Though, to be fair, UAC does a lot more than those useless dialog boxes.

Vista is capable of doing that, you can create users that aren't admins. That way they can't do anything that requires admin status.... like install software etc.

More info

You do have a flexible security policy editor which will allow you to keep kids (or dads) out of trouble. Not perfect. But better than nothing.

I'll remind you about now that the reason for better Mac and Linux security isn't because they are really so strikingly better. It's because they don't have enough market share for hackers to be too interested.
