  1. I think it might be possible the file on your Diablo CD may be damaged as well. Is your CD still in good shape or no? Edit: Now that I think about it, I think if you create a Blizzard Account at http://battle.net/login you can add your Diablo CD Key to the games you own. From there, you might be able to get Diablo as a digital download from the Blizzard website. I know they do this with Warcraft 3, Starcraft, and Diablo II--all games I have on their system. I think it is likely they do it for Diablo as well.
  2. I've come across a number of excellent Free Software Fonts over the past few months and I thought I would share them with you guys. All of them are freely licensed, and embeddable without restrictions. The details vary (check the license included in the packages), but that is pretty much the gist of it. I generated all of these previews using ImageMagick and a script, so bear in mind they'll (probably) look a bit better (less jagged, mostly) on your screen, and they'll all look good in print. Also, all of them boast support of large portions of unicode (meaning they have characters for >9000 languages). I'm no designer or anything, but to me these fonts look pretty good, and I can include them in projects without having to worry about licensing or anything. I hope you may find them useful as well! DejaVu Sans Description: Based on the Bitstream Vera Sans. Meant to improve on the font and extend it into unicode as well as provide additional styles. Only thing I don't like so much about the DejaVu (and Bitstream) families is that they are noticably larger than "regular" fonts. Website: http://dejavu-fonts.org/ Download: DejaVu Fonts 2.30 Regular Extra Light Bold Italic DejaVu Sans Mono Description: Based on the Bitstream Vera Sans Mono. Meant to improve on the font and extend it into unicode as well as provide additional styles. Website: http://dejavu-fonts.org/ Download: DejaVu Fonts 2.30 Regular Bold Italic DejaVu Serif Description: Based on the Bitstream Vera Serif. Meant to improve on the font and extend it into unicode as well as provide additional styles. Website: http://dejavu-fonts.org/ Download: DejaVu Fonts 2.30 Regular Bold Italic Gentium Basic Description: Serif font, a little fancier than Times, but still formal. I use it over regular Gentium because this package includes Bold/Italic versions. Website: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.ph...item_id=Gentium Download: Gentium Fonts 1.1 Regular Bold Italic Gentium Book Basic Description: Similar to Gentium Basic, but it is a little heavier (thicker). I think it looks better on paper than Gentium Basic. Another reason I like it is because it is slightly wider than the average font without being obvious. Good for extending a term paper's length without additional work! Website: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.ph...item_id=Gentium Download: Gentium Fonts 1.1 Regular Bold Italic Liberation Sans Description: The Liberation font family is designed to be a replacement for Arial, Times New Roman, and Courier New--while mostly maintaining their characteristic look. It is because of this they are included in most Linux distributions by default. In my opinion, compared to Arial, Liberation Sans is a bit tighter, more uniform, and cleaner. Website: https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ Download: Liberation Fonts 1.05.2 Note: For some reason, the project's website doesn't have a ttf version of the most current version (1.05.2). I compiled the latest version to ttf and linked it above. Regular Bold Italic Liberation Serif Description: Liberation Serif is designed to be a replacement for Times New Roman. In my opinion, similarly to Liberation Sans, Liberation Serif is tighter, and more uniform than the font it is intended to replace. It is also a bit blockier, making it look a bit better on the screen and more formal. Website: https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ Download: Liberation Fonts 1.05.2 Note: For some reason, the project's website doesn't have a ttf version of the most current version (1.05.2). I compiled the latest version to ttf and linked it above. Regular Bold Italic Liberation Mono Description: Similar to Courier New, Liberation Sans is a bit heavier than Courier, it also drops a lot of the serifs from the letters, making it easier to read on the screen. This is the font I use in my text editor. Website: https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ Download: Liberation Fonts 1.05.2 Note: For some reason, the project's website doesn't have a ttf version of the most current version (1.05.2). I compiled the latest version to ttf and linked it above. Regular Bold Italic Linux Libertine Description: Designed as a replacement for Times New Roman, Linux Libertine tries to be similar to Times, but makes a few small improvements here and there. Website: http://linuxlibertine.sf.net/ Download: Linux Libertine 4.41 and Linux Biolinum Regular Bold Italic Small-caps Linux Biolinum Description: A part of the Linux Libertine package, Linux Biolinum is a "grotesque" sans-serif font still in development. It's kind of got its own thing going on. Website: http://linuxlibertine.sf.net/ Download: Linux Libertine 4.41 and Linux Biolinum Regular Bold http://dl.dropbox.com/u/40722/font-preview...d-0.4.1.ttf.png (Had to link, hit the image limit) Here are some other sources if you're looking for more free (as in speech) fonts. Free software Unicode Typefaces - Wikipedia SIL Fonts - SIL International Open Font Library - A bit of good, a lot of meh. Cheers!
  3. That might actually work on a few of them.
  4. Aye, but sometimes it is hard to get the "helping humanity" part across to them. They hear you start talking about proteins and misfolding and the like, and eyes glaze over. That is why I'm seeking insight here. College Hill.
  5. After my long period of being away from these forums (I've still been folding though!). I return to ask my fellow folders, how do you guys recommend I get my friends to fold? I haven't made any serious attempts at getting them to fold (yet), but I plan to, and it would be good to have some extra ammunition for convincing them to fold. These guys are gamers (good computers), and I imagine their biggest fear would be that they would take a performance hit, they may also find the initial setup [somewhat] intimidating. How would/do you go about convincing others to fold? The major points I hit on are as follows: After you set it up, you never know it is there. You're helping a well recognized university (Stanford) to complete important research. [This is followed by a bit explaining what [email protected] is, and its purpose.] I don't really have much after that. I don't really want to pressure someone to fold, but I would like to have a few more logical reasons as to why they should do it (and yes, I do point out some of the drawbacks so they know what they're getting into). What could also help, is knowing what got you into folding. What was it that tripped your curiosity into making you download the [email protected] client the first time? Stay cool guys.
  6. I was looking at the CCleaner forums the other day, when I saw that by creating a file named "winapp2.ini" and placing it in your CCleaner folder, you could add applications for CCleaner to remove junk files from. To test how much this would free, I ran CCleaner with winapp2.ini not added, and then I ran it with winapp2.ini added. Winapp2.ini allowed for the removal of 50MB more junk files! When you add winapp2.ini to your CCleaner folder, when you run CCleaner, go to the "Applications" tab, and the applications added by winapp2.ini will show up there. Simply check the entries you would like to be cleaned. Here is the post on the CCleaner forums regarding winapp2.ini and update info. I recommend you subscribe to the topic so you know when they add more files. You can download the current winapp2.ini from here.
  7. Don't forget to configure your BT client of choice to work with 50 connections instead of the standard 10.
  8. For me: Max Speeds Before: ~250Kb/s Max Speeds After: ~700Kb/s A major improvement for me.
  9. I saw a speed increase in both upload and download speeds. Thanks!
  10. This one is for my fellow tinfoil hat wearers out there. Do you have personal data on your Hard Drive or USB drive? That data is available to anyone with access to that device. To prevent would-be information thieves, use TrueCrypt (based on Encryption for the Masses) to hide your data. It has both Linux and Windows versions! Reasons to use TrueCrypt: - It's free and open source! - Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk. - Encrypts an entire hard disk partition or a storage device such as USB flash drive. - Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent. - Provides two levels of plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password: -----1) Hidden volume (steganography – more information may be found here). -----2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be distinguished from random data). Until decrypted, a TrueCrypt volume appears to consist of nothing more than random data (it does not contain any kind of "signature"). Therefore, it is impossible to prove that a file, a partition or a device is a TrueCrypt volume or that it has been encrypted. - Encryption algorithms: AES-256 (the algorithm used by the U.S. Government for security levels up to Top Secret!), Blowfish (448-bit key), CAST5, Serpent, Triple DES, and Twofish. Other info I've discovered through use (and reading of the documentation): - A TrueCrypt file container can have any file extension you want, this helps prevent files from being identified as a TrueCrypt volume - TrueCrypt volumes can be decrypted by keyfile or by password (you choose during the creation of the volume - TrueCrypt does not show that the volumes have been accessed - You can back up the headers of encrypted volumes for restoration should they become corrupted - You can change the password on encrypted volumes - TrueCrypt volumes with the extension .tc are associated with TrueCrypt and can be opened by a double-click action (however, this is not recommended, because it shows that the file is a TrueCrypt volume) - The program provides a tool for creating and mounting TrueCrypt archives on travel drives Warnings: - If you choose to use keyfiles to decrypt your archives, it is wise to create backups of them and store them separately from your PC (examples: Floppy or CD) - Take advantage of the program's ability to backup the header of volumes, you don't want your header to become corrupted and your files be useless! - Make sure you use a strong password (guidelines to doing this are provided in the program) - Do not forget your password or lose your keyfiles! - If you create and use a hidden volume, make sure that you take the precautions highlighted here - TrueCrypt will not work if you are not logged into an Administrator account (Windows) TrueCrypt can be downloaded from here Sources: Download.com and TrueCrypt.org

  12. I did notice a speed increase! Would someone mind explaining to me what this does exactly?
