In 2000 my wife started Alford Design Group in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our first client was her boss. I bought a copy of Go Live 5 and Adobe's Classroom In A Book for the program and learned how to design web sites. I was having some problems making the content fit the full screen, so I used my ninety days of free tech support to find out how to do it. Adobe told me to use tables and this is what I did. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) was in its infancy and about all it was used for was to style text.

Since writing the article on DVDFab Decrypter and DVD Shrink and the legal problems that could arise from using the software, I thought I would talk about copyright and intellectual property. What does that have to do with computers you might ask? Well, everything and nothing.

Happy New Year! I trust you had a good Christmas and a safe New Years Eve. I thought I would start the new year out with a book review about the open source program the Gimp. I'm looking forward to some new and exciting technologies and keeping you abreast of happenings in the computer industry.

You wanted questions, so here is one (or so).
I have recently built a computer, and here are the specs:
Motherboard is a VIA P4M800 Pro - M V1.OA 1066Mhz/800Mhz/533Mhz
Pentium 4 2.66 ghz processor
2g of ddr2 ram
2 160g hd
Onboard sound and video
ATI 650 Remote Pro Tuner card
and dial up on a v96 lucent win modem.
OK, now my question. I watch alot of TV on this computer, and record to the secondary hd. If I am watching or recording and try to connect to the internet, the Catalyst Media Center (the ATI card) gets choppy, and the sound cuts in and out. Is this a conflict between the modem and the tuner card? How do I find out?

I have been holding this back for some time now because of the legal complications that using this software could have on you, the reader and user. So aside from this here goes. These are two nice pieces of software that will allow you to copy DVDs.

Several months ago my wife said she would like to be able to have our vinyl record collection converted to CDs. I began looking for a way to accomplish this task. Scanning a Fingerhut catalog, I found a record player that would allow me to record our LPs to cassette and CD. It was a nice looking unit, but for around $400 I could do the job. When I mentioned the price to my wife she said it was too much. I let the idea go, but it was simmering on the back burner.

I've been in Northwest Arkansas for the past three weeks visiting and experiencing a Thanksgiving not to be believed. We had a Thanksgiving lunch with a family member who had recently lost a daughter and later that afternoon the children of my cousin arrived. There was so much food, I couldn't even sample all of the desserts that were brought.

In 2000, my wife began a web design and print design business in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was working for a company that did meeting planning. The web site I was asked to design was to encompass the groups the company managed. I was just learning how to design web sites. Being a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAAP), I was using buttons for navigation and tables for layout. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) was in its infancy and was used primarily for styling text.

I'm feeling a bit strange this week, so i thought I would pass along some of that strangeness. I know that what you are about to read will sound on the paranoid side of the aisle, but this stuff goes on. I have been harboring this article for a while and I thought that it was time to pass along some of the ... weirdness(?) that goes on while you surf the net, send and receive email and talk on your phone, whether it be your house phone or especially your cell phone.

Last week I talked about CDex, the CD ripper to convert CDs to .mp3 files. Switch is an audio file converter that will change one audio file format to another. Say you have a .mp3 file and you need to convert that file to a .wma (Windows Media Audio) file. Then Switch is the program for you. Here's the address to obtain Switch: http://www.nch.com.au/software
