Re: c: space disappearing

Figured out what this was in case anyone is interested or has similar dilemma. Logged in as system user and found a massive 5 GB folder full of Windows system restore files sitting in C:. Disabled system restore and now I have my spare 5 GB back :P

Re: c: space disappearing

Thanks for the suggestions. I figured out how to make the hidden files visible and deleted all this stuff like Songbird which I don't use, not really solving the issue but it has temporarily freed up some space. Have been deleting all temp files (doing this daily to try and free up any space) have d...

Hey Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for this problem. My hard drive is divided into two sections (hope I'm using the right terminology to describe this!), one sections is 10 GB and only has Windows, nothing else on it.

Re: Breaking Vegetarianism

How did you guys find it at first, digestion wise?? I've skim-read a few articles over the years about how your stomach stops producing the enzymes required to break down meat proteins or something, after awhile of not eating meat. But personal morals aside, the thought of having bits of meat next t...

Re: Bankruptcy

I heard that bankrupcy won't clear your student loan. Anyone know if that's true? Bankruptcy does wipe your student loan. The NAP (no assets procedure) doesn't though. And wax, you can still get a cheque account (with no overdraft facility) at most (if not all) credit unions who aren't as poxy as b...

That's lame. It contradicts what it says on the insolvency site too, which states that credit agencies only have a 7 year record of your bankruptcy.

After you've been discharged (3 years) it still remains on your credit record for 4 more years I believe, but after that initial 3 years you can take out student loan or become a director of a business and travel overseas without having to apply for it etc etc. I'm interested to know what happens af...

Ask the tattooist what brand ink they use, then google and email the manufacturers. That's probably the easiest way of finding out. Unless the tattooist is vegan, or has taken the liberty to look into such a thing, they probably won't know the answer themselves. The manufacturers are also not oblige...

he also suggested some other programs/utilities that you can use with an iPod that aren't iTunes.

I've always worn long sleeves at my job, I did at the interview because I didn't want to jeopardize my chances and it seemed a bit weird to bust them out after that. It's not really so bad if you're in an air conditioned building.
