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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I would guess that the router is not up to the job and is almost certainly running out of resources. I recommend getting a better router. You don't actually need to replace the Internet router. Just get a WiFi extender. Have a look at Edimax, they have several boxes that would do the job without costing that much. With a WiFi extender, you can also set ...

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 ...

(I don't use Chrome, so I'm answering for Firefox only.) You can launch Firefox with a specific profile using firefox -p profilename. Note that this will open a new window with the existing profile if an instance already exists - add -no-remote to force it to open a new instance. -no-remote also means that it won't respond to things like opening a link from ...

I'd say it depends on the game and you might be able to hack it to do that. The reason is that may have been written to read/write places that are common - say like your profile then it might be difficult to get it to run from an alternative location and not read/write to the common locations. However if the game is not gfx intensive then you could run a ...

If all the users share one account with the same password, then you need one login which is associated with one home directory. For example: '/home/user'. You need to clear this home directory for every login event. You can write a script to clear this home directory and run it by writing a command in .bashrc inside '/home/user'.

It should also be possible to control this type of activity from /etc/profile which is read before the /home/user/.profile and is owned by root. (See: http://bash.cyberciti.biz/guide/Startup_scripts). However, this would not prevent the issue of opening up another xterm or a second user logging in at the same time. If the system is not multi-user, i.e. ...

System users vs local settings profiles A User Profile is system specific, stored in its User folder through that %LOCALAPPDATA%. Meaning that if you log on into Windows with two different users you cannot access eachother's user profile folder without prior linking or other form of permission access and setup. C:\Users\Adam\ C:\Users\Eve\ Eve can't load ...

It sounds like you want two copies of Windows on your system. This would, theoretically, do exactly what you want (the hibernation files stay separate between Windows installs, so one can be hibernated while the other runs), but on the other hand, it would mean you have to reboot a lot. Here's how to set it up: Backup your system and be prepared to format ...

I do not know of anyway to do this exactly without having multiple copies of windows. You could however have different bat files that launch a different set of programs and kill certain currently running ones. Here is a crash course on Bat files if needed.

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: ...

Use VNC to connect to the console session (I believe it does this by default already). Then use session shadowing to pull up both RDP sessions on the console that you are currently using VNC to connect to. This will allow you to see both sessions at the same time. Setup Setting this up is fairly easy: First go to a domain control and click properties on ...
