I'm looking forward to pure thought interfacing with technology on a mass scale.

Hopefully this will be available in Chrome by 2030 which means it might be partially available in Internet Explorer by 2040.

comment How to convert a video file to XVID format?
@AngryHacker Yes you're right. I've just installed on another Win 8 image and it does have those, somewhat sneaky, opt out of optional installs, a bit like uTorrent. There are two of them that need to be radio checked to say no thanks. But that aside the program itself is not malware or up to anything improper. Been along while still i installed so forgot about that.

What do you mean, RDP would give the users more access than you would like? Create a new user account and assign it restricted permissions and then let them RDP with that login??

Have you gone to xvid.org and downloaded their free codec? Why on earth you would want to transcode to AVI using an XVid container from an MP4 which is likely using h264 codec where as XVid using h263. AVI are a total PITA to use re: video editing in that they are very often not supported.

comment What does it mean when my HDD doesn't show any S.M.A.R.T attributes?
Since you've installed a PSU, you've been in the system case, have you ensured you haven't nudged a SATA cable, etc. I.e start by rechecking all the physical connections. Are you using a Windows box? If so download crystaldiskinfo. If that checks out, then swap the power cable to another disk and see if that disk then starts acting up, if so it wont be your disk but the power cable / PSU. Anything in Event Viewer?
