Small question to the people who are using Windows 7 and WMP12. You may have noticed a "Resume Previous List" feature in the jump list. Now I had to reinstall W7 recently and after a while of use I saw that "Resume Previous List" feature is missing.



Any ideas on how to get it back?? (yes yes I see the MPC. But I like to use WMP as well :p)

Omg holy shit.

My dad just brought this 24" widescreen monitor, because I had a 20" wide on this comp. He's like here take it, they were not using it and wanted to give it away in the lab.

I just installed it.

I'm fucking lost in the screen, I dunno where to look. I love this.

:lol: I guess its the 24". But I don't get the part "because". Your dad bought a 24" because you had a 20"???

Koss Porta Pro are what's being recommended, Senns, or the ones i've seen are bulky, i dont mind, but it's not for me

I have 485s, they're light for me, but the friend has 215s and wants less bulky than that

Dad didn't buy it. They had one just lying around in the lab and they were telling him to take it. He noticed that my monitor was small, and because he'd been watching me work on flyers and stuff he thought it might be better if I used a bigger monitor. So instead of putting it somewhere else in the house, he gave it to me :D.

24" is pretty much my ideal "computer desk monitor" size. As big as you can get without being uncomfortable. Even my current 22" looks sad when I put it next to a friend's 24...

A new project is sitting on my desk, a broken HP Pavillion DV9000. I worked on it earlier in the year (or late last year) but it's owner decided it wasn't worth spending the cash to fix it so bought something new. Now I've been given it to see if I can do anything with it. I can't remember what the problem was but the first thing to do is get a power supply.

I think the graphics probably died, which would mean a new mainboard. I'm keeping an eye on eBay for either a smahed but working laptop or a working mainboard.

I know someone with the same laptop, if it has the NVidia GPU it is extremely prone to failure IIRC.

I'm odd when it come's to monitors.
I rather use a laptops, as I can position it closer than my desktops, being a clean freak its kept right in the corner of my desk, about 60cms away. So far I've got a 17", 15",13" and 7" screens and the 13" is my favourite.
