    Hey guys just a word here. This cd is amazing and so is the creator. Alot of work went into the making of it, not that i did it but Ive been around it for both versions. Solaris put alot of time and effort, so if you guys could pay like 5 bucks or w/e for it, I think its just a way to appreciate it.

    I just want to thank you guys currently 3.5 is not able to be downlaoded i personally dont have a connetion fast enough to be able to UL it. w1zz wont host it because it is too big and my site is own..i need to buy a whole new one it needed too much work anyway. I just want to let you now hat i will also be getting a few servers like TPU has. Im sorry for the incovinence that 3.0 brought never downlaodable had o pay to get it shipped when i promised a free product. I know i let alot of you down and i know i made a couple of you frustrated. I work hard on alot of things Job GF life local customers. Solaris Utilty DVD is something i will continue to mae and mae free however if you want one with a cool label or lightscribe Speial edition youll have to pay shipping. I mean i dont make alot of money i repair computers for people at my work or friends but i dont charge maybe sometimes but i dont see the point. I need to be able to afford disks and ink which i ont lie is actually hard for me. it seems lie i have great hardware and i just built my GF an amazing new rig but in all honesty that all totled up to $700 on my Credit card that will take me till X-mas to pay off. I guess i just wanted to stress what i do. Im not the fastest shipper and i apologize i dont have a car and dont have the money to get one so i need to rely on rides but my job conflicts alot of the time so its impossable to get to the post office and when im not woring everyone comes home at lie 6pm after its closed. I want you guys to now that in all honesty its you guys that eep me maing it. The whole point of this as to get away from downlaoding stuff or using the UBCD though its a great disk i noticed alot of people here needed more. So i made my disk. I know i havent delivered what i promised ease of downlaodability and distrobution. but i do work hard for TPU i mean when i started it was nothing more than the UBCD on a disk with some drivers. However through all of your input and needs it is now bootable has an autorun sequence when in windows and includs 2 linux OS's for people that need one. The coding took an extremely long time. Im working really hard im running into xtremely hard programming problems already i stay up till like 3am trying to figure it out unfortunetely i cant ask for help because what i am trying to do i so complicaed you would need to be sitting nxt to me in order to help figure it out. I know when it is done though yu will all surely like it though. total revamp in code and in subsystem. EVERYTHING will be updated and this ill be perhaps the longest part. their will be new editions to bootable system diagnostics including updated versions of the previous bootable programs. It will take some time before this disk is finished but it wont be a fiasco like the last time everything will be in order before this goes public.

    just wanted you guys to know and i guess now you do thnx for understanding. I simpy ask that before someone gives me flak for it not being downloadable or that it hasnt come yet understand that i am not working for sun or Novell im a work at home coder who does this for free to help the people i respect and like and i do this on my own computer by myself with no tech support or team and in my own free time. Though with all of this said i hope you will continue to support my efforts and really enjoy my disk because if the support drops and no one tells me in all honesty how it has helped them or even if they ever use it the updates will come less frequently or the project will be dropped all together with the little time i have and with sleep running low if no one is intrested anymore oir no one even uses it than the only ones being made will be for my personall use because in all honesty as it stands this is made updated and published on a demand basis.

    Thanks Solaris for the update, I know you worked incredibly hard to get it sorted; but for the wait that some people had - I think everyone can agree it was worth it.

    Blood sweat and tears Solaris - that's what went through and I for one am amazed by your work, I would never know where to even begin with doing something like this.


    I would love another updated version for sure, but when that happens is up to you;

    Could we all upload the files individually? like i will do a bit, trip can upload a bit etc etc. Then the downloader can just download the parts and stick them together in his/her own time?

    This sort of thing possible?

    unfortuneely no i wouldnt ant to do it first off because some people arent that bright and wouldnt kno how to put parts of an iso together. So id get a million ims like hey solaris i downloaded dvd 1 and it doesnt work wtf? and id be like dude yo need all 4 parts. not only that but before they got ahold of me they would DL te image again taxing the server twice. Three because the image wont work like that the utility dvd iso is something iv never worked with before...you cant simply take the files add them to nero and make an iso. you need to run the iso bat maker in the tools folder because this indexes creates and validates all files and cheksum the odd thing is when you break it and put it back together it doesnt work...and if you take the raw files and try to build an iso in another program it also will not work so peicing is something hat cant be done.


    as for EMoK the point is o you dont need to go everyware to DL everything again its good for people with dial up or for people who dont want to spend hours trying to find the stuff they once had because you can have it all on one disk. that and its bootable with various programs to help you diag and repair more so than hirens or UBCD and though i in no way doubt your skill i can garentee you you wont find a better compilation of utilities and youd be hard pressed to make it yourself

    This looks like an incredible disc! Being a techie, I love what's on it. If I ever get my hands on it I'll seed it on demonoid.com, unless that's a no no... in which case I'll just use it for myself!
