Re: Merry Old Two

A lovely scene. I have a very similar image taken in Irelands last year. Here's my play.

Re: Merry Old Two

nice street scene Gunner

In the old days (well my youth ) you used to make a "guy" from old clothes and a mask, he would be stuffed with all the dead leaves from the trees, after taking him around the streets trying to make a few coppers he would sit on top of the bonfire November 5th and be burnt ! ! a practice that here in the city has died out, ( mainly i suppose for safety's sake )

I had Parallels running and a virus came thru and wiped out 4 external drives and all my image files. so thank you, but no thank you very much.

Re: Merry Old Two

Didn't tell you that I even have my browser virtuallized using Sandboxie. With Sandboxie, that wouldn't have happend to you Gunner unless you chose to download a program and run it outside of Sandboxie (Sandboxie actually allows you to install many programs. If you don't like it, just delete the Sandbox. Your system doesn't even know anything changed). Just me; I'm very paranoid. Use to fix PCs so I've seen more then a few infected systems that motivated me to figure out a way to create fool-proof environment, and I have. Trust me. I'm actually better protected then any Macintosh would come close to be. That's the beauty of Virtual Machines. The problem with Parallels is that you still can get a virus through if you browse natively. Virtualizaing my browsing inside a VM is the way to go (in other words, double virtualization). People at DPR call what I'm doing overkill, but again, I don't get viruses. Even visit infected sites intentionally and laugh at them (haven't done this in a little while though; lol).

Re: Merry Old Two

Lyle that is a very neat piece of information. I am going to have to look into it, not just to be able to use other platforms apps but because as you say it is so safe. Who knew! Once again, thank you.

Re: Merry Old Two

Should have linked Sandboxie's site (since we can here). Free for personal use currently, but it will nag you after a month. Only had to pay for it once though, and that was over 2 years ago; get free updates. Worth it to me. Used it when I had the real XP and now use it in my XP VM in Win7. Does support Win7 64-bit, but not as good as 32-bit so I keep using it in the 32-bit XP environment since I want 100% protection.

Re: Merry Old Two

I am using a Mac so that could be a road block.
