I'm not going to mention any names or provide any links for this.

If an admin would like to know about it, you can email me or message me here on the forums.

Regarding the Masters program. Do you really think it's fair that a Master offers a premium content theme on another site for a lower price than they are charging here? Seems like a big slap in the face to Stardock and an extreme abuse of having the Master priveledge here. I have seen 2 different artists do this.

I have mixed ...

Ok, so Vista is out.
Can people PLEASE stop capitalizing on the name when doing themes, walls, etc.
It's like nails on a chalkboard seeing people use the word Vista in something when it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Vista at all. It's called Popularity Whoring. It's distasteful, vile, putrid, disgusting and could be considered a felony in several states!!   
How about a new category called "This crap has nothing to do with Vista" and put all of this PWWare in there!!!   

Somewhere, th...

A couple of years ago, my company purchased the $499 version of DX, at that time dubbed Desktop X Professional. My download link points to DesktopX_310_pro.exe.

Since DX Pro is now only $69.95, and we have paid the price for enterprise, should I be having the Enterprise Edition.

Annoying someone via the Internet is now a federal crime.

It's no joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity.

Not that this is a huge deal or anything but it is extremely annoying when installing OD items. If you check the box to install future items to this INCORRECT location you are in for great joy.

Now that Firefox has become the first viable contender to Microsoft Internet Explorer in years, its popularity has brought with it some unwanted attention. Last week's premature disclosure of a zero-day Firefox exploit came a few weeks after a zero-day exploit for Internet Explorer appeared on the Internet. Firefox not only has more vulnerabilities per month than Internet Explorer, but it is now surpassing Internet Explorer for the number of exploits available for public download in recent mo...

Several security vulnerabilities in Firefox and the Mozilla Suite of Internet software put users of the open-source products at risk of hacker attacks, the Mozilla Foundation is warning. The organization released Firefox 1.0.1, which fixes 17 security flaws in the popular Web browser. The most serious flaws could allow an attacker to gain full control over a victim's PC, the Mozilla Foundation says in a statement. Firefox 1.0 was released in November and has since been downloaded more than 27 m...

I have noticed that when I would try to run msinfo32.exe that it would launch the Help and Support Center on WinXP.
For those of you not familiar with msinfo32, it will give you detailed info about your system (in a nutshell). It can also be launched from Help and Support Center, Support, Advanced System Information, View Detailed System information.
Well, you can see (maybe) the irony with this issue. Start Run... msinfo32.exe would just launch help and support center.

After digging I fou...

Just curious as I don't have access to the chat area right now.
Will a fixed version of SS be released today?
The latest build does not show the start button in the preview window. I have
also been informed that some other key items are missing as well.
Would like to work on a WB theme this weekend and that's kind of hard to do at the present.
