And now for something compleatly different.
I got my computer working again, although I pretty much had to reformat the hard drive doing it. It turns out that the program that was giving me all the problems was my ZoneAlarm fire wall.
So...now I need a new firewall. Preferably free. Any suggestions?
Computers are incredibly fast, accurate and stupid. Human beings are incredibly slow, inaccurate and brilliant. Together they are powerful beyond imagination.
