Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
We have a number of pc's in the apartment, all hooked up to a Netgear DG834G router. Three desktops, two using Vista and one using 7. Two laptops, one XP and one Vista. The second desktop is the media pc, and everyone on the network can connect to it with no problems. The reason I mention this is because on my desktop and my laptop, both using Vista, I cannot connect to them from any other machine. Some network login screen appears, asking for a user name and passwords. I have disabled password protected sharing on both. File sharing, public folder sharing and network discovery are enabled on both. They both, in fact, have the exact same network setup as the media pc. There is no password assigned to the only user on both machines.
So why do they insist on a user login and the media pc does not? And how can I get rid of the damn thing? Oh for the days of XP networking when things looked difficult but worked when they said they would. Now we have Vista and 7 making it look easy and fucking it all up
...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.
