The sh*t that happens....

when you don't pay attention. So I'm formatting a few computer's that a friend of mine wanted to upgrade to WinXP using a Wipe Disk that formats everything (and uses some kind of government or military standard for erasing shit) and I remember a few people asking for a copy of it so I upload it onto the DFW Stangs server while installing Norton Anti-Virus... Anyway, so Norton ask to reboot and I do and walk away... but I forgot to take the GD!!!! Floppy out of the drive and I come back to my computer formatting It took me an hour or so to restore from CD's and another 20 minutes to get my connection and misc. shit installed. Dammit! All because I should have been paying better attention. Now I've gotta download all my warez including downloading and installing Enemy Territory

That sucks.

One of our computers in the payroll office booted up one day and did a PXE boot which boots up to our Ghost server. The lady was freaking out thinking we erased her HD. Of course it was waiting for a ghost session to start so no harm done.

BTW, payroll people dont have a sense of humor.

Ya, it's up there I just gotta remember the path or wait until I get my FTP Software running so I can log in and find the path.

No matter what OS I install on any of my computers, once its up and running, I always go into the bios and turn off the cdrom and floppy boot options, luckily though, most of my computers do not have floppy drives... as grant well knows

Live and learn I guess. I think Norton has an option for "prompting" you to remove a floppy before it shuts down. Gotta remember to enable that sucker

FlashFXP is the best out of the ftp software programs. Use Kazaa Lite. I also have ner0 6.0 iso if you would like. Contact me on aim :>

Thanks guys for the help! Photoshop I've got on CD so that's no biggie. I do want to grab the new Nero 6.0 as it wasn't out when I downloaded the version I have. I installed Kazaa Lite this morning so I can start getting some of the software. I'll let you guys know if I need something in particular.

How's the Nero 6 working out? I'd like to get that. As far as FTP software, I just prefer CuteFTP because I'm more familiar with it. Thanks though.

Lesson number two learned : Now that I have a DVD-RW I'll start backing up my warez so as not to repeat a stupid mistake

All that's left in the folder is "autoexec.bat", which refers to a "wipe.com" and "yes.txt" that aren't there. Where they be?
