comment I need a good split-screen WYSIWYG editor?
@user958405 If it's plain HTML, you do not need anything extra other than the browser. If its a script like PHP, it will not render in a WYSIWYG editor without first installing PHP. In the latter case, you might as well run a local HTTP-server like RedGrittyBrick suggests. That said, WYSIWYG in the editor is not always the same in the browser you end users use.

In response to the link you provided: I use 2 monitors, one with notepad++ and the other with FF, IE and Chrome. I edit in notepad++ and hit the F5 in the browsers. Not "real-time" but it works!

comment Cannot access network server via hostname, can with IP
Typically, users have permissions problems once a month, if any, when they go through the AD passsword mandatory change. This guy issue is that his problem persisted in various forms, and this time I cannot solve it.

@KCortreau the DNS is set to "automatically detect" and ipconfig shows 192.168.x.y, the same Win2k3 server. Which I believe would be correct. Internet, Skype etc are working fine.

comment Should attaching email to another email be a non-recommended practice?
I know it's useful for troubleshooting headers. Been using that too. But I find that it complicate things for normal usage at times due to servers/client not supporting the file format or have problems parsing it to the point I thought that it is not a specified standard; or other issues like unable to search for the mail. For long chains, I personally trim them before forwarding.

comment How many types of PCIe graphics card form factor?
I just measured the plate longer-side, depending on where I start to the L-shape bend, it measures, 3.3 inch, 2.85 inch, 2.7 inch. I hope it is the half-height standard and that the ATI 3470 comes with both standard and half brackets.

Not seen a dual slot card yet? Then I need to be cautious. I am aiming for this overclockersclub.com/reviews/ati_hd_3470 looks like low profile and dual monitors to me...

comment How to delete user account and profile on Vista
yes, reboot many times already. I finally managed to remove the profile files and folders by going into Safe Mode and brute force registry delete and permission settings. I still hope to know the proper way to doing this.

comment How to delete user account and profile on Vista
There is only an Administrator and a Guest which are both the built-in accounts. When I first "created" the account, I simply go to "User Accounts" and then add the domain\ad_user and set him to Administrator. Is what I did correct?

comment How to delete user account and profile on Vista
I am talking about the "User Profile" at C:\users\ad_user . That is what I cannot delete. Directly deleting it will cause a bunch of permission issues. I also cannot reset the persmissions due to Access Denied on ~xxxx.tmp files

comment Legal to use Vista OEM to install on Computer with XP sticker?
@studiohack Sorry, but I didn't think my question is an obvious exact duplicate because I am refering to an upgrade from XP, not downgrade to XP. But it seems that mine turned out to be to be a special case where the computer is under the downgrade scheme, and thus rendering both questions identical.

Unfortunately, it appears that the command doesn't list hardware without drivers.
