Marksheet,
I know that when you create a new partiton, that it "formats", but I didn't think that it would WIPE it instead. The XP delete/create partition seems to be different from the normal create partition with other programs.

Anyways, since all my data has been completely wiped, this is what I have now, a clean install of Windows -- on the Dell. The Dell is fixed. I was NOT able to recovery "any" of my lost data on it.

But for the Compaq, I have run a Killdisk.
What happens if you have no RAM, does this mean that you can't install ANY programs?

Captain Kirk,

If you have no RAM, the system will not boot only... Forget about installing programs !! The OS needs the RAM for loading itself up, so if you have no RAM... Your machine is virtually dead..

Tis time to close many posts....

@ Captain James T Kirk (T for Troublesome)
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)

The crystal is running out of power and so is the forum.

Incoming message; from the crew;
Spock; Get rid of him, it is logical, because we're not going anywhere
Uhura; Captain, I am getting no response on all sub space frequencies
Scotty: Captain, I've giv'n her all she's got captain, an' I canna give her no more.
Sulu; Can you give us a status report, Captain? Temperature's still dropping. Now 41 degrees below zero.
Bones; What if they went nowhere?
Lighthouse (offshore); Trouble with Tribbles?...scanner beams working

Mr Sulu, Spock and our dear friend Scotty have now control and quite rightly so;

All power to forward shields. Prepare to fire all weapons!

I didn't understand one thing... Does 30 days in the brig means 30-day ban ??

In normal cases a 30 day HTG ban is insignificant, it is a 'slight' warning to show that we disapprove regarding a certain post.
In more severe cases, you could be sent to the HTG dungeon for 30 days. Now this is not nice at all, no food, no love, no smoking nor beverages in the range 0% to 50%.

30 days in the HTG brig as opposed to our fully fitted / kitted dungeon is pretty well known and is scary to say the least.

However, the brig in this case is on a Klingon ship and is not contemporary with the Enterprise.

Due to the current economic climate, we outsourced the brig facility and the Klingons came up with the best price.
