You want to use IMAP! POP3 is not designed for this scenario! While you can tell POP3 to keep a copy of your messages on the server, it is also downloading them to your local coputer. Note the word "copy". Using this option with a mailbox shared with one person, you'll wind up with three copies of every messaage: one on the server, and one local copy on ...

Use POP, and have both email clients "leave a copy of messages on the server" for some reasonable amount of time for both parties to have checked it. Choose the options you want in your email client account settings.

The guest account can indeed be enabled, as can be seen in the following guide from forum.technical-assistance.co.uk: By default the guest account in Windows 8 is turned off. To activate it is much the same as Windows 7, just getting there is a little different. Open the Control Panel by typing Control on a blank part of the Start screen ...

Sorry no such feature, found this advice: The common suggestion is to use a shared "GNU Screen" session: http://groups.google.com/group/vim_use/browse_thread/thread/f502e7783038d484/c4603374d2e752b2 to do collaborative editing in Vim. However, it's a bit tricky because it's modal, so if one person changes modes, the other person has to ...

The answer depends on whether you use Windows or Linux: If it is a Windows computer, nComputing products will do exactly what you want. They supply the keyboard/mouse/video devices, which cost on the order of $75-200 per added user depending on whether you want to add users via PCI (cheapest), USB, or Ethernet. (Windows licensing note: These products ...

Sorry to dig out this old question but as I bumped on it and found an answer here it is: Have a try with https://github.com/FredKSchott/CoVim

AFAIK this is only possible with Linux (and *nixes) and X11. You can configure multiple Displays which can each use a video device and their own inout devices. Here's an example of such a setup: Six-headed multiseat system Here are a few additional links for Archlinux and Ubuntu. Or just google around or X11 multiseat. There's even a Wikipedia article about ...

Interesting question. Well there seems to be 2 hurdles, the bigger of the two would be multiple instances of Windows. To overcome that challenge you could use Virtual Machines. Use a single host and create 2 virtual machines and just drag each VM on a screen. To overcome your problem with input devices I found an article on a tool someone found who was ...

Left in it's default configuration, running an account with USER permissions on Windows 7 will have essentially the effect you're describing, gmunk. User Access Control (UAC) and the default rights of a USER account set account permissions more or less exactly as you describe. No special configuration necessary. UPDATE: It depends. As always. Depending ...

Its the same as in Windows 7. Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Accounts -> Manage Accounts

It's not that easy but possible if you use linux. In Linux you can set up multiple X servers to run concurrent. (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiseatX) I really don't know if hardware acceleration is possible for multiple X servers. It depends on your graphics card drivers. You can also try to set separate graphic card drivers for each X server ...

You can't really have two separate accounts 'logged in', other than fast user-switching. But it depends on what you mean by logged in of course. You can easily run applications as another user. If you right click while holding the Shift keyboard key on a shortcut or executable file you will be given the option to 'Run as a different user'. Provide the ...

Just create an admin and a regular account on the PC's and go to set UAC to maximum. EDIT 1: You could also take a look at the group policy editor (you can launch it from Windows-key + R and type gpedit.msc). Or use a program like DeepFreeze (DeepFreeze costs money but I am sure that there are free programs that do the same). DeepFreeze basically resets the ...

In two words : you can't. This artificial limitation by Microsoft is designed to force you to update to a Server version of the operating system. However, see this: Enable Concurrent Sessions on Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP (Termsrv.dll) So long as you understand that actually executing these instructions is a violation of the Windows EULA.

It is possible, there is a patch that you can apply to Windows 7 to remove the multiple login restriction. Download this Concurrent sessions enabler.zip Extract the files from above downloaded zip file Shift+ Right Click on install.cmd file and select run as administrator. That’s it. You should see below screen after you have executed ...

No. Windows 7 won't allow you to do this. But... Windows MultiPoint Server will. It allows connecting multiple monitors, multiple keyboards, multiple mouses thru USB HUB's to work on one machine by multiple people. I've seen this in action and set it up couple of times so it's really nice. Mostly for students, classrooms with one big server and multiple ...

If you do full system scan as an administrator, every account will be scanned. Dutch: Als je het programma als administrator draait, dan zal elk account worden gescand.

There are countless solutions along these lines that might do what you want. I wouldn't like to recommend one over another because I think the ROI on something like this is poor, but if you want to start digging away at this that gives you a place to start.

It appears that the guest account functionality still exists in Windows 8 but is disabled by default. I have yet to find an official doc on Microsoft's site regarding this. Visit the User Accounts section of the control panel to re enable the guest account.

I find a solution. MissingRemote published a patch which solve the problem in Windows 7 and allow concurrent remote session. Here they are: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Windows 7 No Service Pack You might have to edit install.cmd manual and remove :VERSIONCHECK because this script is very tightly check your Windows Build version. My windows build version 7600 ...

In windows 7 you can use switch users instead of logout, this will keep all your programs running and login as other users. Hope this helps.

This is possible with Windows Multi-Point Server. It is not for retail sale, and is only available to educational departments. For a demo, see YouTube.

i know it's dirty too but you may use screen for the first terminal then screen -x on the second one and so on when logged into a terminal with the same user from somewhere else

I'm not aware of any vim plugins for collaborative editing, but have a look at gobby.


2

I don't think so, because Vim creates a swap file any time you open a file. This swap file helps if you want to recover after some sort of an error. When the second user opens the file, his or her Vim will see the swap file and get an error and the options to ignore, delete, recover, etc. I don't think that both users would be able to simultaneously edit ...

To further elaborate on my comment, your question leaves me somewhat confused as I assumed, what your're asking to be fact with Windows 7. In Windows 7 the Administrator account (equivalent to root on Linux) is not available for direct use by default. So usually you have an account with administrative privileges (equivalent to being in /etc/sudoers). That ...

To reset your user profile, shut down Chrome and then open the following directory path: On Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\ On Windows Vista, 7 or 8: C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\ On Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/ On Linux: ...

First you go to the option on the top right corner, that just looks like 3 parallel lines. Click that, then choose the option 'Signed in as 'your account'" then that will open to a new page. on the newly opened page choose the option down near the bottom of the page and choose "delete user" this wont delete the account forever, you can sign in as many times ...

UPDATE (11-Sep-2015): To be able to sign out an account, you need to set up at least one supervised account in Google Chrome (it can be even an account you never use). Once there's a supervised account, you can sign out of ANY account set up in your Chrome. EARLIER, DOESNT WORK NOW: A sign out feature has been recently implemented, and works properly with ...

If you need to use a single mailbox, then configuring the mail clients to leave messages on the server, as suggested by @Josh, is probably best. That will work equally well whether you use POP3 or IMAP4, since the key is to configure the client to leave the message on the server. IMAP4 works just as well as POP3 in an "offline" setting, even though it's ...
