comment Alternative ways to check time zone in Windows XP?
@TomWij - I don't directly manage the user so I'm not sure what the administrative decision was. Most of their workstation was locked down so I presume it's indeed a group policy.

Bingo. Disabling UAC did the trick. Thanks!

I also checked my permissions in Windows and I'm a member of the Administrators group.

comment Python Won't Install On Windows 7
The option to run as administrator doesn't appear in the right-click context menu and is grayed out in properties. I've also tried running in compatibility mode. Unfortunately the issue remains.

comment Dell e4300 Random Beeps
@galacticCowboy It sounds like a set of system beeps. Does not occur when doing anything specific. Sometimes it'll happen when the laptop is idle.

Thanks Nagul! I had the exact same issue. It's comforting to know I'm not the only one.

comment GDM Won't Automatically Start After Boot
This is a fresh install. In the gdm.conf file I see "start on (filesystem and started dbus and (graphics-device-added fb0 PRIMARY_DEVICE_DISPLAY=1 or drm-device-added card0 PRIMARY_DEVICE_FOR_DISPLAY=1)" Does that mean that it's not finding the rights conditions for starting?

comment GDM Won't Automatically Start After Boot
@Jawa I wish I knew. The only recent changes I made were installing desklets (which I uninstalled). That being said, the problem did seem to start when I booted the computer with the monitors powered down -- is xorg tempermental about that stuff? This is a fresh installation of 10.04.

comment GDM Won't Automatically Start After Boot
Thanks @kartikmohta I guess I'm looking in the wrong place then... where else should I check for why it's not automatically starting?

comment GDM Won't Automatically Start After Boot
@Jawa it goes by to fast but the bottom part says "The script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, but lsb-header is not supported for Upstart jobs"

Thanks. Upgraded didn't resolve the issue but it was a good idea and fixed some other quirky behavior.

Thanks, I ended up just using wget as change management to install is a bear. =)

comment How to prevent skype from hogging bandwidth?
Just an update: the pfsense box has done wonders... still need to test more (and bandwidth has been more limited) but I don't have to worry about it monopolizing all of my network's bandwidth.

comment Side-By-Side Configuration Fails To Load
It seems that a reinstall of the apps this appears on did the trick. I'm still a little concerned that this will come up later with a different app but so far so good.

comment How To Improve VOIP Sound Quality
It's still choppy after I ensure that everything is off. Called the ISP and they confirmed that the line is healthy with no errors.

Good to know! I didn't see a related feature in the Analysis menu... is this something new?

comment How To Improve VOIP Sound Quality
Thanks Molly. I think I've finally concluded that it's something occurring on server-side. I tried using my softphone from my laptop with a verizon aircard and got the same exact behavior. Ping latency against the asterisk server is sporadic (no matter where I perform the ping test from). The server admin is looking into it. Thanks so much for your help.
