    Locking the computer?

    Recently I've been locking my computer whenever I leave the house. I was wondering if this had any impact on WCG or F@H. Would locking the computer stop those tasks? From what I can tell, it doesn't seem to have any effect on it. It looks like whatever tasks were running continue running when the pc is locked, as it still played my music through WMP.

    It's fine to do that. I lock my PC after I leave for work so my roommate won't fuck with it, WGC keeps on doing it's thing.

    I have the same problem with the cats. If I don't lock up, they start downloading cat porn and shit. Next thing I know I'm doing a re-install because of all the viruses. Thank god neither is into kitten porn. You get busted for that shit.

    At the risk of sounding harsh, we're all family here, or at least as close as you can get to being family when it comes to a bunch of people on a tech forum. Just come out and say it, if anyone gives you trouble, they'll swiftly be delt with by the mods. If I catch anything before that happens, I'll troll the living hell out of them.

    its not really about that, im not afraid to write the stuff here, but i just want blkhogans accept to write some of the more personal stuff, if he wants that, which im pretty sure he wont mind:)

    i know the team is great, and the mods are good aswell, no doubt

    i just feel that i need to be a bit sensitive about what to burst out with on this one. and/or other stuff like this that i may know of, or gets to know of.

    hope you understand

    and thank you :toast:

    I know what you mean, it happens to me with English/Spanish. Sometimes I can describe it in one language, but not in the other. Happens....

    He had mentioned his dad was sick some time ago, I hope his family is doing well. blk is a really stand up guy.

    I don't want to bother him with a PM so I'll just wait and hope he gets a chance to stop by and let us know how he is doing.
