    Hey Ian, yeah, been a while since I've been around these parts. :) Thanks for your suggestion, it's probably the closest thing so far to what I'm looking for actually, although it only allows a single machine to mirror a screen to the secondary machine, and I need approximately 8 machines able...

    N0 sound on a Fujitsu-Siemens Amillo pro V3515 laptop

    Hmm, cheers Mucks - I found that same driver on another site at about the same time you posted it. Anyway, I tried to install it, but the install failed (cant remember the error). But I restarted anyway, just to check things, and the sys came back with still no sound, although the yellow...

    Windows Vista MCE & Vista Upgrade, or just standalone Vista?

    Cheers feckit. I am pretty competent with OS's and stuff, so either option is easy for me, was just wandering on what options others were going for and would advise. Personally I'm swayed to the standalone Vista.

    Web Servers

Point being, they can just wear...

    Can anyone recommend a good freeware (ID3)Tag editor for both MP3's and WMA files. I have quite a massive collection I'm in the process of properly tagging, so batch processing would be a advantage. Also a windows context menu addition would help. Thanks in advance guys :)
